Daytona USA – Episode 042

The hosts let loose with their inner Florida Man to discuss the quintessential Florida game – Daytona USA. Let’s go away to the land of alligators, bath salts, and bike weeks and explore how Sega ended up creating the most iconic NASCAR(ish) game ever.

How did this music get composed for a stock car racing game? What kind of money did Sega spend to get a huge head start the 3D gamescape? Why was Sega Europe so upset with the game’s development?

We also get a rolling start on other topics like why the beach is the worst place on earth, the first auto-tuned song, and the importance of #41. And if you’d like to avoid spoilers about the new Mortal Kombat movie then tune out the last 20 minutes (just like Mr. SNK).
