80's Overdrive for 3DS looks promising

There are several Out Run homages that have been released in the past decade or so, but every time I see one, my eyes light up. Nostalgia is a powerful thing after all, though in the end, I do need solid gameplay to back it up. 80's Ov...   read

Hah, remember Dark Void? It was only six years ago! There was a point pre-release where the Airtight-developed, Capcom-published third-person shooter seemed like it might be cool (it had a jetpack!), but it ended up falling below expectatio...   read

Leaked footage of Forza 6: Apex looks dull

Footage of the upcoming Windows 10-only, free-to-play Forza Motorsport 6: Apex has been leaked online by some naughty person and it doesn't seem up to par with the Xbox One version. It certainly doesn't look anywhere near as good as Micros...   read

Hoopin' is on the horizon for Rocket League
