Talking of screenshots - found this thread on Something Awful, about a
videogame made for the Sega CD back in the early 90s featuring the magical
duo that was never released. Now someone's got their hands on a copy so
everyone can experience the true joy that is Desert Bus, one of the
minigames. Experience the most accurate simulation of driving between Tuscon
and Las Vegas ever created. It's a flat featureless desert. The bus only
goes 45 MPH. The journey takes 8 hours. It is awesome in it's zen-like
genius, and if you ever reach Vegas you score... one whole point.Check the whole thing out here:http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid;67022&perpage;@&pagenumber;=1

I saw a Train Driving archade game in Japan and you had to reach the stations on time without gunning it or slamming on the anchors too hard. It was quite difficult but ultimately only interesting making the passengers fall over through over-zealous use of the brakes.

They're totally mad for train sims over there. Also Mushiking, which is basically pokemon with beetles and a rock-scissors-paper battle mechanic, is teh massivest evar. All very peculiar.

I used to work for MVC and they used to sell a game for PS2 called "Xtreme Xpress". It's a train racing game, highlights of which involve a revolutionary track-swapping feature. Sounds pretty dull though, despite the obscene amount of X's used in the title. Slot car racing (i assume you just press X?) also looked pretty terrible.

I was searching a video game like that. I really will drive the bus no matter how long it take. The game will be more interesting see mountains, transit signals, trees, another cars or trucks, and curves. A long straight road line it come boring within first 25 minutes and after you quit to continue. Anyway Thanks I wil try to get it cos I am long distances bus driver.
