FlatOut maker Bugbear Entertainment's Next Car Game has loads of potential -- have you seen the impressive destruction physics? -- but it didn't find a proper audience on Kickstarter. Before the campaign could come to a sad close, the company shut it down. It's since turned to Steam Early Access, where the demolition derby racing title has found tremendous success.

Next Car Game has made over $1 million, topping its original funding goal on Kickstarter in a single week. I had wanted to become more invested in the project but after the crowdfunding imitative went south, I backed away. It's so nice to hear Bugbear is moving forward, though -- the technology is there, and I'm curious to see where the studio takes it.

Mute City is my favorite DLC track in Mario Kart 8. Like, it's not even close. Nintendo doesn't seem all that interested in making a new F-Zero, but at least we have dedicated fans out there keeping the series alive. Take th...more

Review: Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1

Mario Kart 8's first DLC pack has Link riding a horse-shaped bike called the Master Cycle. And, good lord, Mute City from the beloved but still dormant F-Zero series. Also, a track based on Excitebike with a killer remix. Are you even going to read this review? Don't answer that. Let me have this moment.more
