joecacti says there's going to be a new release after some real good thunderstorms. He says he's got some real gems laying about and he gave me a sample. It's called RC Pro Am and it's about a silly game. And tomatoes. One thing he mentioned was multimedia. He said he wants to make the beltway into a racetrack, and you get points for getting to work faster. Anyhoo, here's the stuff:
