The Retrograde Podcast – Wave Race 64
It’s Wave Race 64 this week on The Retrograde!
Andrew and Mikey take to the open seas to review the original 3D racing title for Nintendo 64.
We also take some time to discuss the stellar sales of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, James Gunn joining Suicide Squad 2, and the Overwatch Halloween Event!
Every day, 2 million tons of pollution finds its way into our water systems. That number, equivalent to the weight of every human on earth combined, is contributing to a global climate which threatens the source of the lifeblood of humanity.
The pollution of our water contributes to roughly 3% of all deaths worldwide.
America may objectively be “the land of the free,” but its inhabitants aren’t exactly “free” to swim in as much as 40% of its rivers due to pollution.
Thankfully, large provinces such as Ontario are pulling out of agreements such as their “Cap and Trade” carbon tax, and the United States has turned away from their commitment to the Paris Accord.
Hopefully this means we as a global community can get back to the things that matter, like arbitrarily racing pleasure crafts through crystal clear water while exhaust spews into the untainted atmosphere.
Its sentiments such as this that made some water based racing games of the 1990s so enjoyable. A pure disregard for one’s own safety and the long term health of humanity in order to enjoy what truly matters: speed.
But is this feeling, like the throttle of a speeding waverunner, worth holding onto? Or should we let this memory drift down to the bottom of the ocean to be forgotten forever?
