Good news everyone!

F-Zero is coming to the Wii U eShop for 30 cents this week, but not everyone was that excited -- particularly our friends in the PAL regions.

Specifically, I'm referring to the fact that Europeans got that crummier 50Hz version of Balloon Fight. People were worried that Nintendo would keep doing that for subsequent releases, and rightfully so. Well, it appears as if Nintendo has ditched this idea (at least this time) and F-Zero will be running at the full proper 60Hz rate, internationally.

One really cool unintended consequence that a few European Wii U owners have pointed out is that the Miiverse community for F-Zero won't be filled with spam asking for a 60Hz version of the game, like they were for Balloon Fight.

Insert "Nintendo finally gets it" reference here.

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

I hate Hummers so much. Only in America would a car that stupid get that popular. Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.more

Next week's PC beta for The Crew sounds fairly big

Ubisoft's closed PC beta for The Crew will begin a couple days earlier than previously announced. It's now set to take place from July 21 - 25. What's going to be playable, exactly? A decent amount, considering The Crew's ma...more
