Super-Good Crazy Taxi Website (Plus Curse Words)

Sometimes all it takes is a simple Google search to find a page you've been looking for all these years...

Crazy Taxi Techniques

Tells you how to limit cut and other crazy moves.  Argues that Gena and Gus are the best cabbies.  Just take a look for yourself cause it's quite fancy...  I'm adding this to the list of links on the right.

BTW, I also added a "Japan" entry label just cause I could...


Just for fun, here's the announcer for Crazy Taxi (as well as the voice of Axel), Bryan Burton Lewis:

According to his IMDb page, I don't think he's done much of anything...  Although he has been a DJ in Japan for years or something...


And this is something else from Crazy Taxi.  This is part of the original soundtrack: The Offspring - Way Down the Line.  Now speed up to 1:32 or 2:14 and listen to that part (WARNING--PROFANITY USAGE, LITTLE KIDS AND PREGNANT WOMEN LEAVE THE ROOM!):

And all the things you learn when you're a kid,
You'll f*** up just like your parents did.
It all just happens again,
Way down the line!

Not that I'm offended by the song, but I think I recall hearing the f-word in the arcade version.  It's kind of subtle but you can still make it out.  Like they didn't try to censor it out or anything, you can tell it's still there.  This game is rated for "general audiences" in arcades which is kind of weird.  Otherwise, the game is blemish-free except for the "dammits" you hear from the customers...  Next time you play this on the Dreamcast or in the arcade, see if you hear it.
