Episode 59 – Banger Racing Bangers: Destruction Derby

Conventional racing games are fun, but deep down, we all have that urge, that appetite for destruction… why race cars when you can smash them up?! In 1995, Studio 33, Reflections, and Psygnosis came out with Destruction Derby, one of the most visceral and chaotic gaming experiences of console gaming’s fifth generation, kicking off a series that gave us some very fine soundtracks! Join me for this last episode of 2018 where I’ll be getting stuck into some bangers from Destruction Derby, Destruction Derby 2, Destruction Derby 64, Destruction Derby: Raw, and Destruction Derby: Arenas.
