Namco has made another Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

Coming to PS3, 360, Wii U, and 3DS this fall, a sequel to "an emotionless venture that's devoid of any soul or effort." I guess Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, which is based on the new Pac-Man television series, did well enough to warrant a sequel.

The 2 on 2 Gundam vs. Gundam series is as big in Japan as that full-scale Gundam model in Tokyo. It's also big on the Destructoid Forum, in that one Gundam fan keeps explaining how it's the best fighting game and tries to get people to import it. I'm more of a Gundam Battle Assault 2 kind of guy.

Anyway, Namco is taking the format of Gundam Vs. and bringing it west with a new IP, the free-to-play Rise of Incarnates. Because the 2 on 2 format is a bit different for Western audiences, Namco went with a F2P model to build a player base.

And you know it's been developed specifically for the west for several reasons. First, the initial stage being shown off is New York, with the post-apocalyptic staple crumbling Statue of Liberty. Second, there is a blond character with big hair. He looks just like us, my fellow Americans, with his rock and roll nonchalance and red leather jacket.

Though he turns into a monster and there is a mad scientist who rides on a tidal wave of corpses.

Preview: Grid Autosport's San Francisco needs steeper hills

Hot on the heels of last year's GRID 2, Codemasters is coming back with GRID Autosport, a "celebration of pure, unadulterated motorsport." This is going to be less of an arcade racer than GRID 2 ended up being, but without drifting too far into stodgy simulation either.

We'll see if the middle ground pleases anyone on June 24. It did please me, though, despite the insurmountable damage I did to all of the cars. I am a much better driver in real life.

A head in the poles: Project Totem is platforming fun photo
A head in the poles: Project Totem is platforming fun
by Steven Hansen

Press Play proved it can make a platformer with Max and the Curse of Brotherhood, but it wasn't meant to test your muscle memory and invite speed running. It was a colorful adventure with some charm and plenty of stopping for to draw with the magic marker.

With it's newest project, Press Play is dialing up the pure platforming with a minimalist design and some nasty platforming hazards. Nasty meaning cool. The point is I got into a heck of a comfortable groove with Project Totem and maybe you should too when it comes out.

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.

Ex-Blizzard, Insomniac dev working on tactical, turn-based Duelyst

This game looks amazing. Duelyst, which I'm too in awe of to poke at the "y" in the title, started as a tabletop game that the team at newly formed Counterplay Games decided to turn into a videogame. That vision has come stu...

Two new Razer laptops offer power and profile at a premium photo
Two new Razer laptops offer power and profile at a premium
by Steven Hansen

Every time I see a razor blade in person I have to pick it up. Those things are dangerous and shouldn't be left lying about. Kids could put them in their mouth or pigeons could weaponize them. Maybe mobsters will smuggle them into prisons to slice their garlic.

The same thing happens when I see a Razer Blade. I try to keep tech fetishization to a minimum, but seeing a sort of pretty, svelte laptop playing Sleeping Dogs at 3200 x 1800, I can't help but be a little bit impressed. I pick up the Blade just to make sure it isn't attached to the desk it's on with secret desk innards powering it. Nope, it's a for-real laptop, lighter and thinner than what I'm writing on now and I can barely run Portal

If you can trick your work into expensing $2,000+ laptops, you should get one of these new two.
