A game that pays homage to the motorbike game Road Rash has released its first alpha footage. Road Redemption was successfully crowdfunded last year, and now it’s showing off how well it imitates the classic.
Nostalgia is a powerful tool. MLBAM is bringing back the NES classic R.B.I. Baseball, replicating the “good ol’” two-button gameplay of old with a presentation that tries to compete with today’s more sophisticated sims. Does it pay off?
Playing homage to its simplistic origins, R.B.I. Baseball 14 is not an in-depth sim along the lines of the recently released MLB 14: The Show. Instead, it’s an arcade game with just three basic modes to choose from: Exhibition, Season and Post-Season. There’s multiplayer as well, but you’re limited to playing with a pal in the living room, as the game’s only online support is leaderboards.
R.B.I. Baseball 14 review: easy out

You’ve already read our preview of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, right? Coming to PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 this fall, The Pre-Sequel tells the story of the rise of Handsome Jack, the notorious villain of Borderlands 2. For the first time in the series, Borderlands goes off Pandora and to the moon. And with that setting comes brand new gameplay–notably, low-gravity areas and oxygen management. Oh, and laser beams.
Check out the first footage of the game in our new video preview:

In 2010, developer Red Fly (the studio behind TMNT: Out of the Shadows) was working on a game to star The Phantom Menace antagonist Darth Maul. The game, codenamed Damage, was to be a stealth action game similar to Batman: Arkham Asylum. Maul would have been a deadly assassin, but he would be taken down with only a few hits. It was aiming for release on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
