Review: Road Redemption

So hey, remember the 3DO? A CD-based game system that came out in the nineties and was meant to revolutionize gaming, cost nearly a thousand bucks, and was quickly forgotten? With several different manufacturers producing their own versions...

Review: Lightfield

Racing games are a hard genre to innovate. While a developer could add interesting ideas, they still have to layer them on top of an already cemented foundation. Races have to work a certain way, laps have to be counted, and there has to be...

Review: Hover: Revolt of Gamers

I tend to avoid direct comparisons when analyzing a video game, but the fact that Hover: Revolt of Gamers proudly exclaims its relationship with Jet Set Radio, it becomes inevitable. It plays on the nostalgia heartstring...

Review: Vroom in the Night Sky

Watch every Adam Sandler movie in a row. See my grandma naked. Lick the callused scaly feet of Louie Anderson after a hard day's work on the set of Family Feud. Attempt to tie my flaccid penis containing an entire cotton swab in a kn...

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...

How do you feel about rubber banding in games?

Ever screw up in race catastrophically and find that even after crashing 13 times it's still possible to not only catch up but actually win the race? You probably experienced what is referred to as rubber band AI, which is used primarily fo...

SmuggleCraft is an ambitious racer, but needs some tweaking

I'm a huge fan of racing games. I'm terrible at them, but I've always loved driving around at high speeds with my friends. Throw hovercraft into the mix and I'm sold from day one. Games like F-Zero, Diddy Kong Racing (I know they were water...

It's not quite F-Zero, but Fast RMX will do for now

I was tempted to make the title "Fast RMX is the next best thing," but it would actually be the next next best thing, after a Wipeout game (shout-out to Team Harimau!). Successor to highly rated Fast Racing Neo, Fast RMX by G...

Sega 3D Classics review photo

Review: Sega 3D Classics Collection

When I was growing up, there were Sega kids and Nintendo kids. Initially I was part of the latter clan, before wising up and embracing all walks of gaming. All of those conversations about how Sonic was cooler than Mario, or why "blast proc...

 
 
Review: Blaze Rush photo

Review: BlazeRush

Remember that classic racing game Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road? You know, the game where you race tiny trucks across dirt tracks while using turbo boosts to catch some sick air over bumps in the road.  BlazeRush is...

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...
