Destructoid exclusive: introducing the characters of Pure

4:49 PM on 09.09.2008 // Colette Bennett

In August we brought you some impressions from the upcoming drop-dead pretty off-racer Pure, courtesy of the pun-happy Hamza Aziz. With only a few weeks to go until the title launches for PS3, 360 and PC, we thought it might be a good time for you to learn some more about the characters you will play. Of course, for those of you who only plan to throw yourself and your bike all over the pretty landscapes, you might not care so much. Did I mention there are hot chicks?

Hit the jump to read a little bit about what makes the characters of Pure tick (you can see them all in the gallery as well).

Todd Andrews:

Todd grew up in Orange County, California. He's spent the last 10 years focusing every spare second on honing his riding skills on the track his father built for him and his younger sister Suzi. He's One of the most naturally gifted riders on the tour, but Todd’s only obstacle to superstardom is his fiercely competitive rivalry with his sister.

Clayton Wade:

Born in London, Clayton moved to San Diego with his family when he was 15. Shortly after arriving in the U.S., he fell in love with action sports – surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding and riding quads. Although he came to the sport comparatively late, he quickly adapted to life among his fellow competitors and instantly displayed a natural ability. Now, Clayton seeks to put his ample potential to the test against the best in the business.

Takeshi Yukio:

Tokyo-born Takeshi is the definition of natural talent. After just two years riding quads he won the gold medal at the Asian Extreme Games, dominating the competition like no other rider before or since. A livewire with a reputation for playing the joker, Takeshi is one of the tour's most popular and talented competitors.

Suzi Andrews:

Suzi is one of the most kindhearted and likeable competitors on the tour. While she may lack her older brother's natural talent, she more than makes up for it with her fierce determination and exhaustive work ethic. Enjoying a friendly rivalry with Todd, Suzi aims to become not only the number one rider in the Andrews family, but, of course, the best rider on the Pure Tour.

Rosa Juarez:

Growing up in Ensenada, Baja, CA, Rosa's earliest memory is of sitting on her father's shoulders watching the Baja 1000. She worked three jobs to buy her own quad and immediately entered the professional circuit. She displayed a natural talent for the sport thanks to her aggressive driving style, trick skill and unrelenting determination. Buoyed by her success in the Nationals, she believes the Pure Tour will be a walk in the park.

Jay Mendez:

Jay hails from New Mexico. The son of a famous 70’s rock singer, he’s always gotten what he wants, living a life of luxury from an early age and relying on his father’s wealth for income. He spends his free time messing around with quads and jamming with his band. Jay sees the Tour as the perfect platform for promoting his musical career, though deep down he harbors a burning desire to prove his worth by becoming the Pure champion.

Memo to self: spend your time cleaning before wasting ten or so hours on a cblog you'll end up just scrapping because you're incompetent and incapable of writing on the subject.
Is there an occupation out there for people who want to give up and not worry about shit for a while until they can recompose themselves before going back into society?

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

People are having serious anthropological discussions about video games and here I am reminding people that they have one more day to get a dumb card I painted:

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

I'm in the mood for some feel-good music. Hit me with your best feel-good VGM, people! [youtube][/youtube]

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?

Just 1200 words left to go on my essays. Do I deserve a day off to play Just Cause 3 once I'm done? Yes.

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.
