Let’s Play OUTRUN 2 (Original XBOX) – Heart Attack Mode

Metal Jesus and Drunken Master Paul try to impress the girlfriend in the Ferrari while playing the amazing Outrun 2 on the original XBOX. It’s a really fun racing game that has a cool mini-game called Heart Attack mode.

OutRun 2 stays true to the race format laid down by the 1986 original, in which the player goes behind the steering wheel of a Ferrari sports car with a young lady in the passenger seat through 5 of 15 stages. As before, the player can choose their course and the soundtrack. (In cars that are either convertibles or open T-tops, the lady will put her hands up in various ways when the car crosses a checkpoint.)

Metal Jesus: Metal Jesus here, and I am back with Kinsey.

Kinsey: Hello, and today we are going to be talking about a buyer’s guide for the original Xbox. So that’s accessories, hardware and some of our favorite games.

Metal Jesus: Let’s take a look. All right so let’s start with the hardware and again this is meant to be sort of a buying guide, in case you’re out at a garage sale, or a pawn shop and you just kind of want to know what to get into if you’ve never actually owned an original Xbox.

Kinsey: And this guy, is the original Xbox.

Metal Jesus: Yes.

Kinsey: It’s one of the first consoles that has an internal hard drive.

Metal Jesus: I believe it was a 10 GB drive, but you had like 8 GBs available to you, but actually it’s funny you just reminded me, is that I was watching a podcast where they were talking, it was the original creators of the Xbox, and one of the really interesting things is that it’s because they put a hard drive in here that games like Halo were even possible.

Kinsey: That’s crazy, yeah.
