Grand Theft Auto online is getting a top down racing mode

The original Grand Theft Auto and its first sequel employed a different viewpoint to the games we have today. Instead of being third-person, they went for a top down view due to hardware limitations of the time. PC's and consoles weren't ab...   read

Review: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Here's our first big look at the new Micro Machines

Size is relative. That's the concept at the core of the magic of Micro Machines. Try to stick with me: Cars are usually big, but this time they're very small and that's fun. It sounds condescending but it's honestly not meant to be. There'...   read

WipEout Omega Collection gets physical edition, releases this June

Sorry, I can't bring myself to use catchy game-related words in the headline like "WipEout Omega Collection boosts into your living room this June." Makes me cringe as much as how every ad says "slam dunk" during the NCAA basketball tourna...   read

The Nintendo Switch is lacking a lot of party games at the moment, but Bomberman R and Fast RMX have been pretty big hits among my group of friends (along with Snipperclips which has amazing two player co-op). Fast RMX d...   read

Fly high in new off-road racing game Gravel

Review: Ride 2

There has been a dearth of racing games recently, let alone ones focused entirely around motorcycles, so Ride 2 jumped out at me. I've always been a huge fan of the genre, but since I'm generally terrible at it I'm drawn to more arcade raci...   read

Your mileage may vary on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, depending on how much you value Battle Mode

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is somewhat of a weird precedent for Nintendo. The Wii U failed, for all intents and purposes, so they're taking Mario Kart 8, a game that's not even three years old and selling it again on the Switch as a faux "Game of ...   read
