OmniBus Driving/Crashing Onto PC Next Week

OmniBus [official site] is a bit like the movie Speed if it lived in the Mercenary III world and hung around with Crazy Taxi. That’s a weird combination, isn’t it? Want something weirder? The game’s Bus Driver Edition comes with a soundtrack and an “actual MCI bus that may or may not have been used to motion capture lifelike bus movement,” so say publisher Devolver Digital. There’s one available for $7,500, apparently, for which they request “serious inquiries only.”

So there you go. If you’d be happier with OmniBus’ digital incarnation, though, it’s out next week.

Katamari Meets Bus Simulator: OmniBus

It’s far too early to make any game of the year predictions but I’m happy to put OmniBus’ [official site] trailer forward as a likely TOTY contender.

As a new week begins and the frivolity of the weekend draws to a close, it is normal to look back at the week before and think: “Look on my works, ye Mighty, and say huzzah”. It’s certainly how I prepare for the horrors of every Monday, and I suggest everyone do the same. But I’m no doctor and that’s no prescription for joy. Instead, perhaps take a look through the best of Wot We Wrote last week. It’s stirring stuff.

The RPS Omnibus 2.0

Back!

A long, long time ago, I can still remember, the RPS Omnibus used to make me smile, And I know, that if I had my chance, I could make those people click through. And maybe they’d be happy, for a while.

But all those Saturdays made me shiver, with every post I’d deliver. Very few comments on the doorstep, I couldn’t take one more step.

But hell, let’s see what happens this time around. For those who don’t read us regularly or suffer from short-term memory loss, here’s the best stuff we’ve posted over the last week…
