Steel Rats Preview

I know it’s reductive to not think of the Trials series as ‘real games’, but the complete lack of a story or context for the stunts and timed runs has always left me cold, despite how much I’ve loved the super-tight gameplay. So, it’s possible that I was unusually well-primed to find Steel Rats a delight since it takes the core concept of Trials – stunt biking through crumbling urban spaces – and adds gunplay, robot invaders, and what can be best described as ‘bike-fu’. The combination is a glorious one.


A contract, Wii U chatter and random stuff

I've been asked a few times if I will be getting a Wii U, and what my plans are in regard to the system. Basically, my plans are… I have no immediate plans. Nintendo will not be sending review hardware to GameCritics (they never send us anything!) and discretionary spending on a new console is on hold right now. Apart from that, I've looked at the release list and as far as I'm concerned, there's nothing to get excited about.
