    The indie gem Minit, released back in 2018, felt like a breath of fresh air. The monochromatic adventure game took a seemingly absurd time constraint — killing the player every 60 seconds — and turned it into both a passionate love letter to top-down classics like The Legend of Zelda and an ingenious and clever quest that threw constant surprises at the player. Now, the core team behind Minit — Nuclear Throne and Disc Room developer Jan Willem Nijman, designer Kitty Calis, composer Jukio Kallio, and artist Dominik Johann — are back with a new spinoff title, Minit Fun Racer. The game takes the same core idea and applies it to a side-scrolling biking game reminiscent of arcade titles of decades past. All proceeds of the game, which is being published for free by indie label Devolver Digital, go to charity, including Doctors Without Borders and Special Effect. ...

    Stuntman Travis Pastrana stopped by his Maryland hometown on Thursday to jump a rally car over a popular marina as a speed boat streaked underneath.  Pastrana, a 37-year-old Annapolis native, took a few tries over Ego Alley in his Team Subaru rally car as he tried to sync up with Miss Geico - the world's fastest offshore racer, getting speeds of up to 188mph.  His greatest concern when executing the stunt was moisture, as Thursday morning saw the sun being blotted out by fog met with heavy dew on the streets, the Capital Gazette reports.  Travis Pastrana, a 37-year-old Annapolis native, took a few tries over the Ego Alley in his Team Subaru rally car as he tried to sync up with Miss Geico After driving from City Dock to the Newman Street starting point, the Nitro Circus leading man did a few burnouts to warm up the tires.  'If...
    Two-headed snakes were typically seen as idols in ancient mythology, but the rare creature has recently been spotted in our modern-day world. Florida wildlife officials are caring for a Southern black racer snake with separate moving tongues and heads. The snake has a condition called bicephaly, which occurs when two monozygotic twins do not separate while in the embryo development stage, resulting in a creature born with two heads on a single body. Officials say the snake will remain in captivity because it makes different decisions with having separate brains that inhibit its ability to feed or elude predators.  Scroll down for video  Florida wildlife officials are caring for a Southern black racer snake with separate moving tongues and heads. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) shared images of the rare snake on its Facebook page, saying it was found slithering around a home. ‘A rare two-headed...

    FOR some gamers, WRC has somewhat trailed behind Codemaster’s more eccentric Dirt when it comes to rally champs. But this latest corner cracker from BigBen Interactive puts it firmly on the right track in becoming the new go-to racer. 6 Career mode means you must focus off-track as well as off it 6 WRC 8's official licence means realistic motors For starters, it’s officially licensed - all the cars, teams, and tracks (think FIFA vs Pro Evo back in the day). But now the game has the technical prowess to go with it. WRC 8’s physics are vastly improved from previous outings and lead to an intense, in-depth racing experience. Whether it’s resistance from the track’s imperfections or a clanking roll cage ringing in your ears, the attention to detail does not go unnoticed. 6 Sexy skins cover some stunning cars 6 The tracks have been lovingly recreated The thrill...

    Star Wars Episode 1: Racer, the unwieldily titled podracing video game that was maybe the second best thing to come out of the prequel trilogy after “Duel of the Fates,” has been released for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. The game was initially supposed to come out in May, but the release got pushed back indefinitely. Now it’s here for $14.99. Episode 1: Racer is still a great futuristic racing game, which is as surprising now as it was back then. Most Star Wars games around the turn of the millennium were awkward attempts to shoehorn the license into various genres, usually without much success. Racer, however, benefited from more appropriate source material: a movie scene that felt like it only ever existed to sell a video game in the first place. Racer spins Episode 1’s podracing scene out into a galaxy-spanning motorsports league, where you travel...
    Star Wars Episode 1: Racer is out today for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. The classic pod-racing simulator was announced for Nintendo Switch back in March and was originally given a May release date, but that was pushed for unspecified reasons. The retool of the Nintendo 64 game lets players commandeer different characters and podracers across a wide variety of tracks, managing the finicky vehicles throughout the race. Star Wars Episode I: Racer features both a single-player campaign and multiplayer split screen options. The game originally came out in 1999, alongside the release of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. While this isn’t the first re-release — Star Wars Episode I: Racer released on GOG.com back in 2018 — this is the first time it is available on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Last year, Disney and LucasArts approved a re-release of the game on replica Nintendo 64 cartridges...
