Man…so much things have happened ever since I last came back here. Sorry for the lateness guys, I totally forgot to come back and do some more posts – I had originally planned to post again during the weekend after my exams last week but…I don’t know, things happened, I guess.
Lately, I’ve tried to fix an old used tv in my room that I got from my parents so I guess that’s going to take up most of the time. Couldn’t summarize anymore than that.
I don’t really know what to post exactly at the moment but I guess I could just post a short video about one of my most favourite opening themes from video games of all times – Gran Turismo.
The Japanese version of Gran Turismo (GT), ever since the first one – the Psx version (Yes, I do have GT1) all the way to the newest one (GT5), the theme song has never changed since. The creators originally planned to make different themes for each game before but because of the hit popularity of the very first game’s opening, they decided to keep it as the main theme of GT since then. If anyone lives in Japan, when they hear this opening theme, they would probably know this known theme forever.
However, I dislike the North American version of GT. Instead of keeping this iconic theme, they decided to botch it out in favour of their own hardcore American rock style, which totally sucked and received poor reviews from customers compared to the Japanese version. Not just only the main theme song, even the race music bgm of the original Japanese one changed to the own American version. I also heard that the European version was almost just as bad as well….but then again, this is just my opinion.
Well, I think I pretty much covered most of the things. If you guys have your own opinion, well, comment on it, I guess.
Oh, before I forget, this post is also dedicated to my older brother the crazy car guy who, uhh, introduced me to this kick ass song and game.
