Crash-u-like: Danger Zone exploding out May 30th

Shh! I’m typing this quietly so John doesn’t know. If he hears that we’re twelve days away from the launch of Danger Zone [official site], a splode-o-rama drawing heavy inspiration from Burnout’s Crash Mode, he’ll burst into the RPS treehouse shouting “Explosions!” while kicking things over. He flipping adored Crash Mode, see, and Danger Zone is very much doing a similar thing: you try to cause huge crashes to score mega-points.

At the moment, unfortunately, my relative youth is the one┬áthing (that’s it; there’s nothing else) standing between me and that dream. It’s not all bad news, though, because now I can make do with Ace Combat: Assault Horizon – Enhanced Edition on my personal computing device.
