Review: BlazeRush


BlazeRush (PS3 [Reviewed], PC) Developer: Targem Games Publisher: Targem Games Genre(s): Arcade Racing, Indie Released: October 28, 2014 (PC), November 4, 2014 (PS3) ESRB Rating: E10+ - Everyone 10+ BlazeRush is a fast paced action racer with an isometric almost slanted top-down perspective. It harkens back to classic Micro Machines with combat and Mario Kart style boosters. The game features a career mode that largely feels like one big tutorial. Here you'll do things like complete solo laps within a certain amount of time, learn about weapons and power-ups, and of course race against bots. Naturally the actual racing part of the campaign is the best part of it, and it comes in a few different flavors. There's the standard three lap race in which you try to be the first one to cross the … [Read more...]

Housemarque Teases Dead Nation Sequel

Housemarque, developers of PS3 exclusives Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD, have a brand new game coming to PS4 at launch called Resogun that looks pretty great. If Resogun is anything like Housemarque's previous outings, it is going to be insanely addictive. You can check out Resogun above, and if you are a PS+ member picking up a PS4 this year, you'll be able to snag Resogun for free as part of the instant game collection. At the end of the above video though, which is a special message to Dead Nation fans, Housemarque reveals that they do have another title coming out for PS4 but of course dude gets tackled by the zombie before he could say what it is.

Quick Daily Review #40: Crazy Taxi [Video Game]

Quick Daily Review #40: Crazy Taxi [Video Game] Developer: SEGA Publisher: SEGA Platform: PSN Back in the day, there were two arcade games that I played a ton of: Cruisin’ USA and Crazy Taxi. Both were great, but the reason I played them so much is simply because they were in more places than just an arcade; they were in places like Wal-Mart too. I liked Cruisin’ better, simply because I was better at it and well it wasn’t that hard to win a free game on that one. Both of these great arcade games made their way to home consoles eventually. Cruisin’ was on the N64, and Crazy Taxi on the Dreamcast. I never owned a Dreamcast, so I missed out on the home console release of it. As luck would have it, I did eventually get the Crazy Taxi retail game for the original Xbox. I played that for a … [Read more...]
