Review: Forza Horizon 2
by Greg Tatterfield [ Thursday, 25th of September 2014 - 01:00 PM ]
We sit down and play Microsoft's newest entry in their long running racing series Forza Horizon 2. Is it worth talking it out for a cruise? Hated Forza Horizon 2 features a huge open world that's larger than the original. The large expansive open world isn't the problem. The problem lies with the fast travel system. Like the first game fast traveling to the festival is free but fast traveling to any of the hubs across the map will cost you over 9,000 precious credits that are used to upgrade and purchase new cars. This means driving everywhere or burn through your credits by fast traveling. Read More...

Here Is A Bit To Look Forward To For Mario Kart 8
by Julia Thompson [ Thursday, 1st of May 2014 - 03:00 PM ]
A new 'features' trailer for Mario Kart 8 shows off levels, characters, and tracks. I'll be honest that I had no clue that we were up to Mario Kart 8 now. I am also not the biggest Nintendo gamer as of the last few years so it is easy to see how that may have fallen through the crack of my attention. None the less Mario Kart 8 is coming out later this month (May) and there is a new trailer showing off all of the cool new stuff that is going to be in the game. Not to mention how the Mario Kart franchise has evolved from the days of yore to the modern day. Read More...

Driveclub Was Delayed Again But Now We Have A Date
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 29th of April 2014 - 05:00 PM ]
Driveclub has been pushed back once again but now there is a solid date of October 7th. Yes, that means that Driveclub won't be coming to the PS4 here in early 2014 as stated before. Apparently the game just will not be ready until about the first anniversary of the next gen console's launch. Now the date is October 7th if you sit through and watch the gorgeous trailer that was released showing the new date in all of its kind of glory. Good news for all of you race fans or those who want to see how pretty a racing game can be on next gen. The following trailer does look nice and I had no doubt that Driveclub would but outside of being free for PS+ I don't think I'll be playing it more than a few times. Read More...

Review: Rush Bros.
by Kenton Winkfield [ Saturday, 8th of June 2013 - 12:50 PM ]
I always enjoy listening to music when I play games. But not many games actually utilize the ability to use your own soundtrack in the game. You have Audio Surf or Beat Hazard which are directly influenced by your music but not enough games take this idea and run with it. We have another game to add to the list now. From brand new Indie developer and publisher XYLA Entertainment in collaboration with Digital Tribe Games, makers of such games as Velvet Assassin, Kung Fu Strike, and others, comes a brand new musical 2D racing platformer called Rush Bros.

Review: Jeremy McGrath's Offroad
by Fred Buell [ Thursday, 19th of July 2012 - 06:10 PM ]
Jeremy McGrath's Offroad, developed by 2XL Games and published by Reverb (PS3) and D3publisher (360), plays like you would expect any offroad, rally or ATV game to play. It's smooth, it has some air control and it has competitive AI. That is where this game really ends with its current competition. Jeremy McGrath's Offroad has various unlocks as is expected in this day and age, like new vehicles and performance upgrades, however I couldn't find much reason to go after them. No motivation to keep playing despite this. Now don't get me wrong, the game is superbly crafted, no bugs at all as far as I could tell, beautiful graphics for an arcade title, the AI is smart and the controls top notch. Read More...

LittleBigPlanet Karting Confirmed By Sony
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Saturday, 11th of February 2012 - 02:17 PM ]
So correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Sony already had a title that was pretty much LittleBigPlanet Karting. Or at least what one can assume that LBPK will be all about. You know a little game called ModNation Racers. A racing game that also focuses on the ability to Play, Create and Share. So what is up with this new announcement? I will say that it may be a little premature to judge LittleBigPlanet Karting as being pretty much the same thing since there has yet to be anything other than the announcement as of yet. I mean, it could be something completely different and is just in a similar genre. Read More...

Michael Bay Directed Need For Speed: The Run Commercial
by Bryan Ray [ Thursday, 10th of November 2011 - 05:16 PM ]
I don't know how but I managed to stumble across a television commercial for a game series I forgot existed, the Need For Speed franchise. This one is about the latest one, Need For Speed: The Run. The commercial hit like one for a large Hollywood blockbuster. If it weren't for the CGI people you would have a hard time convincing me that this was for a video game. This is likely because it was directed by the one and only Michael Bay, who can tell a story with explosions like no other. The environments and vehicles look phenomenal! Read More...

A Little Twsited Metal Before PAX Prime
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 24th of August 2011 - 11:45 AM ]
I like to think that there is no one sadder that myself about the Twisted Metal delay. I'm sure there might be, but I don't want to make assumptions here. No need to make and Ass out of U and Ptions. Am I right or am I right? Of course I am. Moving on now. Well we might not be getting the game in October and there won't be a "beta" for the multiplayer, at least as David Jaffe has stated. What we will be getting is a new playable map at PAX Prime. For those of us who are not going to PAX Prime and don't want to wait for news and videos to leak out, below we have a few new screen shots for your digestion. Read More...

E3 2011 Hands On: Twisted Metal
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 14th of June 2011 - 04:56 PM ]
So it has been a year since the new Twisted Metal was announced at E3 during the Sony press conference. It seems like it would be a good time to check in and see what the designers over at Eat Sleep Play have been doing since then. Yes there have been some fun new trailers and game play footage, but that doesn't give one a good feeling of how the game would handle. For that you need to place hands to controller. It was extremely fitting that the first location to get my godly hands on the game was in the arcade set up immediately after the Sony conference. Read More...

Review: Subsonic Racin' Pro Chair
by Brian Bentley [ Monday, 16th of May 2011 - 05:37 PM ]
Who doesn’t dream of high-speed car chases and the thrill of racing? Well, the Racin’ Pro portable racing chair from Subsonic gets you just a little bit closer to that dream. Subsonic is giving players the tools to have a first class driving experience as if they were in the arcade themselves. What sets the Racin’ Pro chair apart from the competition is its portability. The chair and all of its pieces fold up into a backpack for easy transportation and storage. Setup is a breeze. Read More...

We Got A Look At Axel From Twisted Metal...Kind Of
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 28th of April 2011 - 04:38 PM ]
Not only do we have a few shots of the Axel-like vehicle from Twisted Metal, but we also have a couple of game play clips of the multiplayer for the game. One kind of looks like the semi overtake races from Split/Second with a TM twist and the other a full arena style combat with a God Of War twist. At least that twist with all the spike traps and huge swinging spiked balls aimed to destroy your vehicle. I will say that what I've seen so far did have me flashing back to my early PS1 days with Twisted Metal though. Read More...

Want More Of The Twisted Metal Trailer? Well Here You Go
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 14th of April 2011 - 06:59 PM ]
If you were like me and found the new Twisted Metal trailer a little short and lacking, then here is the director's cut for our digestion. You know the version that I am sure that David Jaffe would have wanted us to see from the get go. But now, like before, I want even more. There is more game play and more on each of the three playable characters. Finally we get to see Sweet Tooth and Mr. Grimm as family men and the twisted perceptions of Baby Doll. Read More...

Finally A Twisted Metal Release Date
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 11th of April 2011 - 01:42 PM ]
It only took a little under a year, but we now have a release date and a pretty awesome trailer for Twisted Metal. All I have to say right off the bat; WELL WORTH THE WAIT. At least worth the wait for the trailer as we still have to wait until October 4th for the game. But at least we get to have the fun media frenzy to look forward to and most likely a few demos at conventions and on the PSN. The trailer doesn't show all too much of the game but a few scenes from the live action films and slight game play but at least we have been promised some more info here this week. What this could be is anyone's guess, but I'm sure it will be only the start of the forth coming avalanche of info and visuals. Read More...
