PAX 10: Retro City Rampage hands-on interview of glory


10:00 AM on 09.06.2010



I've always known that Retro City Rampage was going to be funny. After playing it, I now know that it's going to be fun; really, really fun.

The game's simple controls and interface make the game incredibly easy to jump into. From there, you've got so much stuff to do, and it all happens so fast, with the pefect mixture of action and comedy. Picture a modern GTA game, but sped up by about x1.5, and with rocket launchers, flame throwers, milk bars, and violent pedestrians everywhere. Then populate it with characters from all your favorite games, movies, and TV shows from the 80's and 90's. That's Retro City Rampage.

If you're like me and you always wanted to like the GTA series, but couldn't get past the wanna-be gangster movie vibe, then Retro City Rampage is for you. Even if you love GTA exactly the way it is, I think you'll still love this game. How could you not? This is a new top-down GTA set in videogame-land. It's such an obviously good idea, I'm surprised that no one has done it sooner.

Retro City Rampage is coming to WiiWare and undisclosed consoles later this year.

Here are some things Bill Platt could have purchased instead of amiibo

A few weeks ago the staff talked about how we feel about amiibo. The consensus is that they are neat little Nintendo figures that don't have amazing functionality but they don't break the bank. One anomaly showed up in the di...more

Resident Evil HD causes night terrors, sandwiches

I had a real weird night with Resident Evil HD. It's continuing as I look for screens to use as thumbnail images and stumble upon nude, pregnant Jill mods for Resident Evil 4. And here I thought I was making questionable use of my time.more
