Cruis'n Blast review

System: Switch
Release date: September 14, 2021
Developer: Raw Thrills
Publisher: Raw Thrills


It’s genuinely challenging for me to recall the last time I experienced a game that’s as comprehensively absurd – and so confident in embracing said absurdity – as Cruis’n Blast. While delivering arcade-style racing in what’s perhaps its purest, most straightforward form, Cruis’n Blast simultaneously feels like what would happen if an energy drink company hired a group of obnoxious teenage boys to design a video game. It’s ridiculous, over-the-top fun that never takes itself even remotely seriously, and I loved every minute of it.

nickelodeon all-star brawl ren stimpy

GameMill, Ludosity, and Fair Play Labs have unveiled Ren & Stimpy as the latest character for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.

The two are actually a joint character as opposed to playing alone. Joel Nyström, project manager at Ludosity, said that the team “really wanted them to be a duo”, which “allows for some very special moves and playstyles”. Ren & Stimpy can use a variety of moves, including “Beep Beep!” as their Strong Dash, “Keep it together!” as their Light Neutral, and “Log from Blammo!” as their Neutral Special.

sonic colors ultimate update 1.0.4

Sonic Colors: Ultimate has been updated to version 1.0.4. Right now it’s only available on Switch and not any additional platforms.

Based on initial research fans have done, it seems as though SEGA may have addressed a major glitch. Some players have come across a variety of issues since launch, but one of the most significant problems involves a visual distortion that could be seizure inducing. Thankfully, it seems that this has now been taken care of.

Nintendo Switch

This month’s NPD report is in, and it confirms that Switch was the best-selling hardware platform in terms of units during August. Additionally, that news goes for 2021 thus far as a whole. Sony leads both time periods in terms of dollar sales with the PlayStation 5, but the console is more expensive.

Across the entire industry, gaming hardware dollar sales in August rose 45 percent year-over-year to $329 million. It’s the highest total for an August month since 2008 ($395 million), and the third highest August month total in history.

Also worth mentioning, year-to-date hardware spending for games is up 49 percent when compared to the same period in 2020, totaling $3.0 billion.
