Hello fellow gamers:
At this time, the battle for supremecy in the "Crazy Jump" bounty challenge in "Crazy Taxi" for the Sega Dreamcast is heating up.
Rodrigo Lopes, a member of Brazil's world-famous "Metroid Team", passed the difficult 380 yard barrier with a score of 382.12 yards, and is now I believe one of the top verified scores in the event, let alone the Twin Galaxies scoreboard.
His progression towards this mark, spanning 52 minutes of attempts, went down as follows, mentioning only 360+ yard jumps enroute to his personal best...
375.96 (25 minute mark)
379.78 (37 min)
378.20 (40 min)
381.46 (48:43 mark)
382.12 (52.02 mark)
He is continuing to try for greater leaps, and hoping of course to claim the top spot for his own. Right now there are at least six active and serious "Crazy Jumpers", all of which are among the top players on the title, so anything is possible before the competition ends on December 31st, 2004. At the very least Rodrigo guarantees a place for himself in the 2nd Book of Records as jumps over 380 yards are extremely rare.
Congratulations, Rodrigo, on an inspired leap !!
