Milestone's GRAVEL is all about bringing the thrill of off-road racing into your home, but what's the fun of racing if you can't challenge your friends? Following the recent release of their Ice & Fire DLC, the GRAVEL (get it from my affiliate, GameStop) team is now showing off their multiplayer modes in a new trailer that shows some of the new modes that players can take part in with up to seven friends. Going beyond single race and championship, Capture the Flag and King Run bring some new dynamics into the game. Check it out...

If you've played video games at any point within the last three decades or so, there's a solid chance that you've owned a Mad Catz product. The longtime maker of gaming controllers and accessories was a fixture for years, but the last few were anything but kind for them. Following an expensive gamble on Rock Band 4, for which they served as co-publisher in addition to the hardware and accessory maker, the U.S.-based company went under, filing for bankruptcy in the spring of 2017. Now, the brand is back, now known as Mad Catz Global Limited, announcing what they've called "a surprise return to the international gaming scene... under new management, with new ideas, new attitude and most importantly, an entire range of new, high-quality gaming products." Check out a teaser below...

Growing up, the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was the big hook for me in terms of gaming, and a system that began a long history with the famed brand. From there, I had the Super Nintendo (SNES), Virtual Boy (first-day buyer, sadly), Game Boy Color, N64, GameCube and Wii. While we skipped the WiiU, The Rock Daughters™ have the 3DS XL and there's an NES Classic here in my office. With the latter two in mind, something I've mentioned before (most recently, here) really applies -  the trip I took with our oldest daughter last November to Nintendo's North American Headquarters in Redmond, Washington, has created another pair of lifelong fans. Addie spreads the Nintendo gospel daily, and little sister follows-suit. While we were able to see a short preview of the Nintendo Switch when we were visiting Nintendo HQ, we didn't get to go hands-on... something that changed recently as I headed into Chicago proper for a preview event ahead of the official launch. With the next chapter of Nintendo's legacy about to begin, here's some thoughts after experiencing the Nintendo Switch for myself. It should be noted that these are first impressions based on a few hours of play, as I have not received a review unit to thoroughly evaluate here at HQ

I'm gonna have to get in on this action soon - the first DLC for last year's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has arrived with Sabotage. In addition to four all-new multi-player maps, what's particularly intriguing is that the COD Zombies experience continues in 90s horror movie style with Rave in the Redwoods. Dropped into a lakeside camp (a la Friday the 13th and countless others), players can fight zombies with 90s "stereotype characters" -  Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) as “the Hip Hop Wannabe;” Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers) as “the Kandi Raver;” Jay Pharoah (White Famous, Saturday Night Live) as “the Grunge Rocker;” and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer) as “the Westside Gangsta.” Additionally, filmmaker Kevin Smith, as himself.

The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition is one of the best games of the year, and one that readers will find in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide when it launches here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine next week. Today, the adventure gets bigger, as Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm have launched the latest Play Set, Star Wars Rise Against the Empire. Developed by Studio Gobo, in partnership with Avalanche Software, the Play Set takes players through the iconic moments and adventures from Episodes IV-VI, including the characters, vehicles and locations.

BLIND GUARDIAN Has Aligned with THE DWARVES...

German metal band BLIND GUARDIAN has forged an alliance with THE DWARVES. No, not the long running punk rock band - but a new RPG from KING Art Games, one that's currently on Kickstarter with $208K of $260K in the can with 15 days to go. Members of BLIND GUARDIAN are working on the original soundtrack for the game, and THE DWARVES will also include a quest that somehow directly involves BLIND GUARDIAN. Check out the announcement video below...
