Bang Bang Racing showcases varied tracks, environments

Bang Bang Racing recently sped off the starting line with a trailer and screenshots combo and a website. Since then, the stadiums have been quiet, with the peanut gallery staring down the stretch holding their hands over their brows to block the sun so they won’t miss the next pass of cars. Well it seems another pack of media has been steadily zipping by the finish line starting a new lap of content showcases.

Over the last couple of weeks eight maps have been posted to Bang Bang Racing‘s facebook page along with a short blurb about each. Hit the jump for the screenshot gallery. Suffice to say, Digital Reality in collaboration with Playbox has gone for massive variety with these maps both in nature and in environment. Across these eight maps are very different themes from snow to sand, coastal to inland. More importantly, it seems as though each map will have several variations involving closing off parts of the map and opening others, turning straights into corners and vice versa. This is a fantastic alternative to the classic “go again, but this time, in reverse” cop-out because maps in reverse really aren’t that different. Throw in a series of six hairpins where before there was a straight, and that’s some majorly different racing.

Keep your eye on XBLA Fans as Bang Bang Racing moves into pole position. Read the rest of this entry »


World Gone Sour: gameplay, details and pricing

Ever dreamed of being a tiny little Sour Patch Kid or better yet, taking a journey in which the ultimate destination was a human stomach? No, us either, but apparently someone at Capcom did and they are bringing that idea to life. This new action platformer takes you on a wild adventure across tons of giant environments, rescuing other lost Sour Patch Kids while battling crazy candy enemies. The new gameplay trailer is slap full of tasty tidbits, showing off what looks like a well made game. This sweet treat will be rolling out the package this spring for 400 MSP. But if you can’t wait, you can pick it up on PC now, for the low low price of $4.99.

Who Wants to be a Millionaire? SE getting Star Trek DLC

Recently spotted on the Australian classification website, was a new rating for Who Wants to be a Millionaire? SE. The rating is actually for the new DLC that is on its way, simply titled Star Trek: The Original Series. No other details are yet known about this, but then again it seems pretty straight forward. No word as to when this will hit the marketplace or even how much it will be, but we don’t think any true fan cares about price as much as they do about just wanting to play it. For those of you who are thinking, what, I didn’t know that there was a Who Wants to be a Millionaire? game on XBLA, sadly that’s because it is only available in a few markets. If you can get it, there are already two DLC question packs available, one of them being an amazing trip to the world of South Park. We can only hope that they show as much love to the Star Trek series as they did with South Park and this will definitely be worth the wait.

Help name the new Zen Studios game

Zen Studios is looking for some help in naming their upcoming game. The company that brought us the incredibly popular Pinball FX 2 is hard at work on a game that they describe on their website as “an experimental rhythm game featuring fully 3D characters and combat, aggressive music, and an East Asian theme.” While they’re currently dubbing the game “Zen Fu,” they think the community can come up with something better, and they’re willing to stake some prizes on it. If your entry is chosen as the final name, you’ll be added as a character in the game and given proper credits. Signing up is easy – simply send an email to zen-fu@zenstudios.com with your name and what you think the game should be called before the deadline of January 4th, 2012. While the game hasn’t been confirmed for XBLA, it stands to reason that it will at some point be released for the platform. Head on over to the Zen Fu site for more info on the contest, and check back here soon for some more info on the game.
