ESRB: Burnout Crash has cartoon violence and LOBSTERS!

ESRB: Burnout Crash has cartoon violence and LOBSTERS! photo



The Entertainment Software Rating Board has published its summary of Burnout Crash, detailing the levels of "cartoon violence" that the game provides. The hottest part of this story? Lobster attacks!

"This is an action game in which players earn points for creating traffic pileups," writes the ESRB. "From a top-down perspective, players initiate crashes by driving 'cartoony' vehicles (e.g., cars, trucks, vans, buses) into busy intersections; multiple crashes trigger score multipliers and rack up large 'bills' of property damage.

"Each level is accompanied by crashing sounds, small explosions, and vocal encouragement (e.g., 'Cool,' 'Maximum Carnage!'). In some levels, players are instructed to crash into police cars (e.g., 'Crash them before they bust you!'); in other sequences, oversized airplanes, tornados, lobster monsters, and UFOs slide across the screen, destroying any vehicles in their path."

Lobsters monsters? What!? YES!! As you may have gathered from some of the more random header images on this site, I love lobsters. They are the best animal in the sea, and now they're claiming the road. I think that's just made Burnout Crash a serious game of the year contender!

Race through ten Chipzel songs on a laser track in Spectra

"F-Zero meets Audiosurf" brings some vivid imagery to mind, but after watching the above trailer, I'm not sure I agree with that tagline for the indie racer Spectra. Sure, it's set to some bumpin' Chipzel tracks, but it look...more

Upcoming Driveclub car will peel your face off

To tease one of the upcoming cars arriving for Driveclub this month, the developers decided to give us a sneak peak via a video showing off the terrifying speed the unnamed four-wheeled machine can do -- at least 242 mph. You got what it takes to hit that kind of speed and not end up a stain on the road? We'll have to see in the coming weeks.  more
