Digital deals so far this week

We've hit the mid-point of the week and the see-saw of time is about to tip forward and hurtle us towards the weekend at an alarming rate. Perhaps more ominously, we will also be hurtling towards the litany of PC gaming Black Friday deals that are headed our way in a fortnight's time. Before then, however, the deals aren't slowing down one bit and there's…

Road Rash spiritual sequel Road Redemption leaves early access, still as gloriously stupid as it needs to be

HIT HIM WITH THE CHAIN. Nothing else mattered. HAHA I HIT HIM WITH THE CHAIN. No-one cared about winning the race. THE CHAIN THE CHAIN HIT EACH OTHER WITH THE CHAIN ALL THE TIME THE CHAIN. This was the experience of trekking to the local games shop every school lunchtime, and paying the very obviously child-hating storekeeper 25p for a ten minute go on a…

Road Redemption Delayed By Louisiana Floods

Road Rash-y fight-o-bike-a-racer Road Redemption's [official site] exit from Early Access has been delayed again, this time for a reason that's somewhat out of the makers' hands. Dark Seas are based in Louisiana, see, which is currently facing catastrophic flooding. Making a video game is obviously not their top priority right now, so they're pushing Road Redemption back from its previously-announced October 15 launch date…

Road Redemption Revving Up To Leave Early Access

Road Redemption [official site] is expected to finally leave Early Access and properly launch by the end of summer, say DarkSeas Games. Back in 2013, they took their pitch for a Road Rash-style motorbike fight-o-racing game to Kickstarter, then they bopped it on over to Steam Early Access in 2014, and now they say it's a few updates away from properly launch. It'll be a…

Spreading Like A Rash: Road Redemption

Road Redemption is a newcomer in the world of motorbike gangs. It probably has Road Rash tattooed somewhere on its body but it isn't directly descended from the bandanna-clad grandaddy of motorcycle combat games. Or, if it is, the mean ol' bastard won't acknowledge it, so it has a name of its own. Alec has already taken to the asphalt, putting a youth of BMX…

Feature: 'Wile E. Coyote: A Michael Bay Movie'

Impressions: Road Rash Spiritual Sequel Road Redemption

"What's the point of remaking games?" is a familiar question. The answers can be similarly rote: "modern values", "the audience demanded it", "publishers abandoned the genre prematurely." Road Redemption, which is '90s motorbikes'n'baseball bats hit Road Rash by any other name, offers a stronger answer: "physics." The physics of rending metal and the physics of plummeting bodies.

Don’t Be Rash: Road Redemption Alpha Out Now

Road Rash spiritual successor Road Redemption wants it all, and it wants it now over a long period of time in which it will slowly but surely build out its feature list, eventually culminating in an open, procedural United States full of gangs, vehicular mayhem, and presumably roads. For now, however, you can scream down a desert highway while bludgeoning men with shovels and the…

A Rash Of Updates For Road Redemption

It's been eight months since we checked in to see just how convincingly spiritual Road Rash sequel Road Redemption was smacking people in the face with a chain at 100MPH. Successfully Kickstarted last May, it's recently stuck a helmeted head above the parapet to show off a current build. It looks somewhat as one might expect/hope - a 16-bit ethos transposed to 21st century tech…

VROOMBIFF: Road Redemption Funded

Redemption. Usually, it's synonymous with some form of return, comeback, or newfound evidence of worth. It'd have been kind of a shame (in a bizarre, cosmic kind of way), then, if something called Road Redemption crashed and burned before it even crossed the starting line. Fortunately, the Road Rash spiritual successor ended its funding drive with a respectable $173,803, putting it ever-so-slightly beyond its $160,000…

Road Rash (Kinda) Returns: Road Redemption

EA may not be making the most, erm, popular calls these days, but in terms of sheer quantity of beloved classics, you certainly can't take a motorcycle-propelled sledgehammer to its accomplishments. That last bit, however, is the exact premise of Road Rash, a largely console-based illegal bike racing classic that stole the hearts of starry eyed youths and - as unbiased science has proven - transformed…
