Table Top Racing Vita Review

Back in the days of the PlayStation 2 there was a racing game that held a special place in a lot of gamers memories. It wasn’t however the Gran Turismo series but rather a game featuring miniature cars and their attempts to race around the human world, that game was Micro Machines. Table Top Racing from Playrise Digital attempts to reignite those fond memories for the PlayStation Vita.

Mario Kart 8 DLC Delivers, Fails On Price Parity

An untimely listing spotted on the Nintendo UK website Tuesday let slip details of planned downloadable content (DLC) for Wii U hit Mario Kart 8.

The webpage details how classic Nintendo character Link from The Legend of Zelda series will surprisingly be made available as a racer in one of two upcoming DLC packs. A range of new tracks, characters and karts were also revealed ahead of schedule, with plenty of callbacks to other well known Nintendo franchises such as Animal Crossing, Excitebike and F-Zero.

However, it wasn’t only the content that got spotted early — both the release schedule and pricing for the DLC was also erroneously on show.

UK Chart: Diablo III Reaper of Souls Reaches Summit

Diablo III reaches the top of the chart with the Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition, bringing the franchise to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 release takes the majority of sales with 47% over 32% on Xbox One, and has the most successful launch on consoles to date, beating the Xbox 360 version by around 500 copies.

The Last of Us (-24%) drops from the top after three weeks up top to slot in ahead of Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare (+200%), which has climbed to third from fifteenth with the release of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions.

A small increase in sales fails to keep the Xbox 360 Edition (+5%) of Minecraft from slipping to forth, where a small dip in sales commits the PlayStation 3 Edition (-5%) to seventh.

Call of Duty: Ghosts (+7%) falls one place to fifth, saved somewhat by the release of the final DLC package Nemesis.

Watch Dogs (-11%) plummets four places to sixth and The LEGO Movie Videogame (-11%) drops two to eighth.

Grand Theft Auto V (+3%) slips to ninth ahead of new release Tales of Xillia 2 at tenth.

Falling outside of the top ten for the first time, FIFA 14 (-24%) crashes at fifteenth.

Who Cares About 1080P & 60FPS? I Sure Don’t

Maybe it’s just me, but I find the ongoing obsession with discussing and dissecting every game apart to see if it holds up to the seemingly ‘holy grail’ metric of 1080p and 60 frames-per-second thoroughly dull.

The ‘attaining’ of these numbers are always being debated on forums, columns and news articles across the gaming web. Yes, obviously the strive to push the industry forward technologically is a wholly valid and worthwhile goal, but it’s also one that at times is downright boring.

Endless articles berating a game for not quite offering up a consistent 60 frames-per-second or not looking quite sharp enough are everywhere.

Deep Loot Review

We as a species allegedly know more about the universe than we do about our own oceans — with that in mind, it’s clear there is a need for more underwater exploration (in gaming too right?). So with that in mind, step up Deep Loot an ocean-based loot-‘em-up for iOS.

Developed by Leamington Spa-based indie developer Monster and Monster, Deep Loot’s premise is as simple as its name suggests — in that you go exploring for loot, deep underwater.
