This is the third game in a series?
 
2013-08-27 09:49:00 AM  
But how is the gameplay?

I have reason to believe they do not take horse racing seriously.

definitely weird, but watching and listening to people watching and listening to videos drives me berzerkers.

ugh! Closed it after a minute. I turned the volume off but that didn't really help.

The Kentucky derby is one hell of a party with an incidental and unimportant horse race. It's like pointing to the VMAs to demonstrate how importantly we take award shows.... point taken, I'll leave.

I wonder why contestant 7 was pixilated.

This seems to be a DVD, not a game? Maybe a DVD-based "Game"?

That was the yeti. Not pixelated during the race - maybe just more Japanese strangeness?

This is what Japanese 5th graders do in their spare time after supper.  Didn't you do things like this (adjusting for technological availability for the time)?

Maybe the Yeti had his junk on display like that kangaroo

That is hilarious and beautiful

If horse racing looked that that in reality, I would be at every race.

Reminds me of a movie I saw called Japan Olympics, which included such events as speed texting*, and the samurai shout**.

* all the fast contestants died of heart attacks, so the slowest texter won

** which consists of shouting the word "samurai" as loudly as possible

It's a DVD, but the races have a random outcome each time, so viewers can be surprised and delighted with who wins.

In the old days, they'd do with a record with two grooves on the same side. Depending on where you placed the needle, a different track (and result) would play. It's the same way the did the "hidden side" on the Monty Python record.

/NEEENJA SNIEEEPAH!

Laurie Anderson had a record like that. When you put the needle down, you'd get one of three album-sides. It was pressed by a producer of little records for pull-string dolls. True fact.

I'll hand it to them, they managed to make horse racing interesting

The real WTF is that the video is 5:25.
