Highlight of the Week: Crazy horses

This week's video highlight is brought to you by Japan World Cup 3 - a racing game in the more genteel sense of the word 'racing'. That's right - horses. GGs. Kebabs. Whatever, there's nothing genteel about the content of the game. Japan is famous for producing some of the most touchingly crazy creations in the world of gaming, but this takes the sugarlump. The game's been out for a while and we're amazed its charms have only just now come to our attention, but we're so glad they did. Observe:

Love it.

    The Japan World Cup series ought to be bought up in every single discussion of the 'Racing Game Series of Forever' on principle alone for it looks to be the Okami of racing games, just with equines instead of lupines. This reverence will lead to an 'icussion FUTURE' according to ReCaptcha. That's a Future so big that it requires all caps to describe it!

    I'm not quite sure what I just watched, but it amused me enough to watch it again.
  • MrWrighty987 - May 27, 2011 6:20 p.m.

    Why can't i stop watching this?

    Huh, I thought Sideways Derby was going to be a Resident Evil spin-off. Guess they dropped that part.
  • ThatGuyFromTV - May 27, 2011 4:49 p.m.

    The first time i watched it the quality was low. I had to watch it a second time just to make sure I saw what I thought i saw. Weird stuff as always, Japan.

    Oh Japan,you never cease to amaze me

    What is going on lol

    Hell yes. This game looks stonking awesome. Also, am I the only one who thinks that the Highlights of the Week would be better with less or none intro text? It's not that I don't like you Justin, it's just that a lot of times it spoils the surprise element to the comedy.

    SIDEWAYS DERBY!
  • Benjamin333 - May 27, 2011 10:03 a.m.

    SIDEWAYS DERBY!
  • mijetman - May 27, 2011 9:47 a.m.

    My favourite bit of the original video is when the horse starts doing a sideways Charleston.
