Every time we cover Sega's 3D Classics line for 3DS, someone inevitably jumps in to talk about how OutRun should be among those games. I agree. And it will be -- at least in Japan. A logo for the legendary arcade racing game ...

Trials Fusion will be late on PC, but there's a beta soon

Originally slated for an April 16, 2014 launch across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, Trials Fusion is now going to be a bit late on the latter platform. It's a Ubisoft game, after all. The new date for PC is April...

Race the Sun coming cross-buy to PS3, PS4, Vita

Race the Sun is on its way to PS3, PS4, and Vita this summer. It will be cross-buy and cross-save, meaning you buy it once and can access it on all three and, if you have a Vita, you can take your saves on the go because of Transfarring. I miss Transfarring. Race the Sun? More like Race the Fun.

Preview: Trials: Fusion is daring and really bizarre
by Alessandro Fillari

The year was 2009. Back when the Xbox 360's XBLA Summer of Games was all the rage, a small little downloadable title called Trials HD came out of nowhere and won the hearts of players. With two sequels, and several million copies sold, Trials has been a staple of downloadable gaming scene and has garnered a loyal and devout following.

Now, with another title on the way, the developers at RedLynx and Ubisoft have gone all in and made Trials: Fusion the most content rich and expansive title of the series. With over 150 developers working on the title across three different studios, Ubisoft plans to give fans and newcomers alike a crash course in making a splash with this bizarre and challenging puzzle racer.

Burnout Paradise 'Legendary Cars Collection' free today photo
Burnout Paradise 'Legendary Cars Collection' free today
by Jordan Devore

Criterion has made the Legendary Cars Collection DLC for Burnout Paradise free today on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (in North America) in memory of actor, writer, and director Harold Ramis.

The pack contains four vehicles all of which are references to famous cars in pop culture. There's the Jansen P12 88 Special (Back to the Future), the Hunter Cavalry Bootlegger (The Dukes of Hazzard), the Carson GT Nighthawk (Knight Rider), and last but not least, the Hunter Manhattan Spirit (Ghostbusters). Worth taking the time to download, in other words.

"Harold Ramis was a comedy genius," said Criterion. "He inspired us." A true legend indeed.
