Re: What ever happened to arcade style racing games?

Horizon Chase Turbo is up for pre order on Amazon for $29.99 for both PS4 and Switch versions. Release date is July 30.

And if you believe the reviews, it looks like Xenon Racer is a dud, especially the Switch version which apparently has a bunch of technical issues.

Re: New Golf Games?

This might not be exactly what you're looking for, but you might want to try Golf Story for the Switch. It's actually an RPG centered around golf. I have the game but haven't gotten around to playing it yet. It sounds pretty fun though, with lots of side quests that feature golfing mini games where ...

I just bought a copy off of eBay. It must be out of print (which is surprising given it's a 2019 game) and rare since I had to pay over $100 for it, but from the review it sounds totally worth it.

Re: Atari Flashback (Switch)

Snakeboy - get it anyway. Mine arrived shipped out of the shrink wrap too, but appeared to be new. Sometimes I think GameStop only ships a single copy of certain games per store, so they open it for display. I have a feeling this will be a collector's item. I also ordered Atari Flashback Vol 3 (PS4...

Re: Atari Flashback (Switch)

I ordered it from Gamestop. That's what I figured. And after checking their website again, I noticed they had a copy at a store near my wife's work so she will picking it up for me after work. I called the store, and they confirmed my fear it was a "new" copy which was removed from the sh...

Re: Atari Flashback (Switch)

Dave, where did you get your copy of this? The only place that I can find it at MSRP is the Gamestop website. I don't love buying stuff from Gamestop to begin with, and they want to charge me $6 for "value" shipping (it doesn't seem to be available at any nearby stores).

Re: Atari Flashback Vol 3 (PS4)

Have you tried using the touch pad on the PS4 controller to control the trak ball games? It actually works really well.

When he said this, did he clench his teeth really hard, and could you see a large vein in his forehead begin to pulsate?

Re: What ever happened to arcade style racing games?

The only modern arcade style racing game I can think of off the top of my head for newer systems, is Horizon Chase turbo. I think it's supposed to be a modern version of outrun. It got good reviews and the screenshots look gorgeous. I don't believe it ever got a physical release, so it would have t...

Re: Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

I will still buy this. But I don't see it on Amazon yet. Amazon doesn't have it. You can pre order it from Best Buy though: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpage.jsp?st=hollow+knight&_dyncharset=UTF-8&_dynSessConf=&id=pcat17071&type=page&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=&sp=&...
