“Hey hey hey, c’mon over, have some fun with Crazy Taxi!”
It’s 1999 and arcade gamers are enjoying some Crazy Taxi, SEGA Hitmaker’s loud and lurid take on the career of driving a Hackney Carriage. Leon, Karl, Ryan and returning guest Dan Clark talk Dreamcast and coin-op versions of the game in some depth and detail, as well as the game’s relationship to its pop punk soundtrack and a whistle stop ride through Crazy Taxi’s sequels and successors – aided and abetted as always by the Cane and Rinse community.
Music used in this issue:
1: All I Want by The Offspring
2: Ten in 2010 by Bad Religion
