Turbo Kid is a 2015 movie set in a post-apocalypse in which a comic book fan battles a local tyrant, with gory, comedic, '80s-pastiching results. It was not a film I expected to get a metroidvania sequel, but here it is with a new demo and an April release date.

I've entered a stage in my life during which I have enormous nostalgia for the PlayStation era, and most of that nostalgia is focused on racing games and drum and bass. Enter Night-Runners, a racing game set between 1990 and 2009, scored by drum and bass, smeared with VHS filters, and just for good measure, set on and around the expressways of Tokyo.

There's a Kickstarter for the project now, but also a substantial prologue demo on Steam that's worth your time.

     Dying Light has more players than its sequel, but dev says that's okay

There are a few staple zombie games that introduced me to the gory, bloody world of 'shoot heads, ask questions later.' Of course, there's Left 4 Dead, but personally, the original Dying Light was a little more up my alley. As the lone gamer in my class, the single-player aspect appealed to me more than L4D's multiplayer, so I spent most of my time stalking the infected through the streets of Harran instead of teaming up with pals to slay witches.

     Grab these top tier boomer shooters up to 75% off in this Steam sale

When it comes to the best FPS games on PC, and that brand of classic style, fast-paced boomer shooters inspired by Doom and Quake in particular, it's tough to beat developer collective New Blood. Indeed, its 2018 pairing of Dusk and Amid Evil can be matched up closely to the arrival of that defining term for the genre, which has woven its way into the public consciousness to the point that Valve now recognizes the boomer shooter as its own standalone category. Now, to celebrate its tenth anniversary, a New Blood Steam sale gives you some of its best boomer shooters and beyond at big discounts.

     Ubisoft's best game in years is getting multiple free updates

Prince of Persia The Lost Crown is Ubisoft's best game in years. Not only does it step out from the shadow of the Assassin's Creed and Far Cry-ification of the developer's open worlds, but it also makes meaningful improvements to the Metroidvania genre it sits so comfortably in. Coming from Rayman Legends studio Ubisoft Montpellier, this isn't that much of a surprise, but you'll still be glad to know we're getting more of the adventure. Oh, and it'll be free too.

February 24, 2024: We're still out on the seas looking for new GPO codes.

What are the new GPO codes? We've got the lot! Often topping the charts when it comes to anime-inspired Roblox adventures, Grand Piece Online codes are becoming increasingly rare, making them all the more valuable with each new update.

But they expire fast.

Released in 2021, Grand Piece Online sees hundreds of thousands of eager Roblox pirates and marines flock to its shores every day. Inspired by the One Piece anime and manga, this one still closely competes with Blox Fruits codesKing Legacy codes, and Fruit Battlegrounds codes. They're some of the biggest, most well-known Pirate-faring adventures on the platform right now, and a great way to understand how this one looks to change things up.

If you've always wanted to run your own car dealership, test drive the fastest sports cars, and rake in that cash, then Foxzie's Car Dealership Tycoon lets you do just that.

As with any new business, you need money to get off the ground. Sure, Car Dealership Tycoon hands out easy money, as you can earn it by simply driving around the Roblox experience, but you'll be driving for a while before you can add that new floor to the showroom. If you're a little light on customers, why not take a break from running your business with Anime Champions Simulator codes, Southwest Florida codes, and Blox Fruits codes instead?

Pacific Drive Key Art

Pacific Drive is a game that understands the joys of a road trip, like the open road, the freedom, and the adventure. However, this open road is one that's determined to destroy you at every turn, so you better come prepared.

Pacific Drive has a simple premise. You play as a delivery driver who finds themselves sucked into a quarantine zone in the Pacific Northwest. Here, science went terribly wrong and unleashed a significant amount of instability on the area, causing reality to shift and warp. You need to get out, and the only help you have are three mysterious people on a radio and a car you commandeered upon entering the Zone.

This premise is wrapped around a survival roguelike driving game. If that feels like someone picked random genres out of a hat and then decided to make a game around it, it kind of is. However, Pacific Drive manages to make all these disparate elements work together in a way that managed to win me over, despite my general skepticism of at least two of those three elements.

Screenshot by Siliconera

Pacific Drive is best thought of as a game of two halves. In the first half, you are pushing your way through the deadly Olympic Exclusion Zone, trying to survive as best you can. In the second half, you are meticulously caring for your vehicle like a dad who bought a 1950s muscle car.

Let's talk about the survival aspect. Your goal is to venture deeper into the Exclusion Zone, seeking a way to escape. This is a harsh wilderness, an area that once housed small towns and research stations, now home to an environment that hates all human life. This is not a wilderness where you have to fear the wildlife, it's the ground, the trees, and the atmosphere that is actively hunting you down.

Each journey you take through the Zone sees you traveling through a series of nodes, each one a different region. Due to the constantly warping reality, each region changes its layout whenever you visit, much like you'd see in any given roguelike. Along the way, you'll find abandoned bits of civilization that can be raided for essential supplies. There are no signs of human life, as it is replaced only by the anomalies.

These anomalies come in many forms. Some are pockets of dangerous energy, such as domes of free-floating electricity or radiation. Others like to throw your car around, such as floating rocks that act like a mushroom from Mario Kart or pockets of anti-gravity that launch you into the sky. Others cause more direct damage, such as pillars of earth that violently punch out of the ground, gigantic saw blades tearing through the landscape, or machines that will drag you screaming into the nearest tree.

Screenshot by Siliconera

Surviving all this is not easy. The only protection you have is your car, which is fragile at the best of times. It's a standard family sedan with a look that suggests it was new around 1978. Its ignition is temperamental, the parking brake occasionally crunches, and its top speed varies depending on its mood. In its default state, its doors and panels feel like they're made of paper and attached by wishes alone. It's doing its best, but you are not getting out of an average run unscathed.

There's a huge amount of tension in any given run of Pacific Drive. Heading into the Zone is a tense game of resource management, careful handling and balancing risk and reward. There is a pitch perfect atmosphere, where I constantly rushed around in a panicked state while out of the car. Everything feels like a calculated risk, where you're constantly doing micro-calculations of whether to stay in an area and gather supplies or get out as quickly as possible.

Even heading back to safety is a risky game. The only way to return to your safe haven, an Auto Shop in a stable pocket, is to rip a hole in reality. You have to collect balls of energy, known as anchors, within the Zone, then use this energy to open a Gateway that leads you out. Problem is, this also summons a Fortnite-style storm that rapidly encloses the entire area, so you have to gun it to the exit before you're eaten by a wall of red. It's a tense moment but one that feels extremely satisfying when you hit that scary light pillar.

Screenshot by Siliconera

This is where the second half of the game comes in. When you limp back into the Auto Shop, you now have the opportunity to improve your car using whatever supplies you were able to scavenge. Although usually you first have to replace a few wheels and charge the battery because your headlights died on you at the last minute.

Something beautiful happens in this moment though. Hanging around the Auto Shop, crafting new parts and inspecting the car for any sudden faults is a weirdly meditative experience. The tension of the rest of the game drops away and you're able to plan out your next moves. It becomes a strategy and management game, as you figure out how to improve your car while planning your next route. Do I need to do a resource run next, or do I want to push further into the Zone and continue the story?

Early in the story of Pacific Drive, your unseen radio helpers discuss the nature of the car as a Remnant, a supernatural object that causes its owner to become obsessed with it. Weirdly, this bled from lore into gameplay. I became incredibly attached to my car, much like the assorted bits of scrap I was strapping to the doors so it could absorb lightning strikes better. When its battery started draining, I was worried about it like a sick child. I felt like I was giving it a rewarding treat every time I gave it a new upgrade. I have enjoyed plenty of driving games in my life, but none of them have done this good a job of making me deeply care for a vehicle.

Screenshot by Siliconera

Despite all this, Pacific Drive is a bit messy. It is often frustrating in ways that feel unfair. The random nature of its environments mean you'll often end up in maps where escape is hindered by a gauntlet of mountains. Progress can sometimes be stalled simply because the materials you need for certain components are refusing to spawn. Some of the anomalies are annoying rather than challenging or frightening – I'm looking at you, Bunnies. Finally, as you delve deeper into the Mid Zone and Deep Zone, some of the environments are just downright mean. None of this is enough to completely ruin the experience but it did make the game feel a little unbalanced at times.

Pacific Drive is a weird game. If you want to be swept into story of science gone horribly wrong, enjoy unique twists on the survival genre or have the capacity to fall in love with a car, there's something here for you. However, its randomness and weird difficulty spikes are likely to be off-putting for others.

Pacific Drive is out now on PS5 and PC.

If you think you're hot stuff at the Diablo 4 rival that's already blowing up on Steam, the Cursed Veteran's Boots are the way to put that confidence to the test. The ARPG from developer Eleventh Hour Games is doing incredibly well on Steam, and despite 'mixed' reviews due to server disconnects, it's certainly caught the eye of many, myself included.

Many sci-fi universes lean into humanoid aliens, and while Bethesda's NASA-punk universe forgoes them in favor of a more grounded setting, I thought they were sorely missed from the game. Thanks to a new Starfield mod though, our prayers have been answered, as you'll now find a plethora of Star Wars alien NPCs roaming the Settled Systems, and you can even play as one.

     Nightingale dev addresses issues amid 'mixed' Steam reviews

New fantasy survival game Nightingale has had a troubled launch. It's already reached a peak Steam player count of 47,569 after its launch on Tuesday, February 20, a pretty impressive number - if not quite that of survival rival Enshrouded, or other big breakout 2024 hits such as Palworld, Helldivers 2, Last Epoch, and Granblue Fantasy Relink. Yet Nightingale Steam reviews currently sit at a 'mixed' 58%, with users positive about the game's look and promise, but bemoaning its online connection requirement and the current level of polish.

     Before the Elden Ring DLC, Miyazaki says there's still one secret left

Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree is going to be massive. With a map roughly the size and density of Limgrave, there are going to be so many secrets to uncover in the Land of Shadow later this year. While we wait, though, Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki says there's one more secret in the base game no one's found yet. Get to work then, because you've only got a few months to find it before the DLC consumes all of our lives.

Oshi no Ko Volume 5 Focuses on How Quickly Plans Change

Oshi no Ko is not just a murder mystery and character focused series. The manga also offers insight into issues in the entertainment industry. For example, in volume 3 we saw how fan behavior affected Akane after how she was portrayed on a show. With Oshi no Ko volume 5, the manga gets more into some technical details as Aqua, Kana, and Akane prepare for a play and how swiftly situations can change.

First, I will note that volume 5 of the Oshi no Ko manga can feel really different from the past installments. While I really appreciate what Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari are going for her, I found it made it more difficult to read. The insights into the possible development cycle for a play were fascinating, but I didn't really connect with Yoriko Kichijouji during the Sweet Today storyline in the second volume, and the Tokyo Blade mangaka Abiko Samejima didn't resonate with me either. 

However, like I said, the development process is interesting here. Aqua is taking part in the play to get insight into the Lala Lai Theatrical Company his mother Ai belonged to. Akane is involved because she's also a part of that group, and Kana is there because she auditioned for and won a major part in the play. Seeing how the actors sort of split up into groups depending on their "faction" in the performance or companies is interesting. Especially as we get to see the process Kana uses when working with her two new partners. 

I also really loved seeing Akane's reaction to playing the role of a character who isn't a fan favorite. It really resonated with me, because anyone familiar with any form of popular media knows how often a certain character who should be important ends up falling to the wayside due to being out of favor with fans. Akane's determination to still do right by her is interesting, as we start to see her formulate how she'll make her part matter.

It's after someone gets about a third of the way into the volume that the twist happens. Abiko doesn't like how the adaptation of Tokyo Blade turned out. She wants the script entirely changed, even though she loves how the cast performed in the run-through she watched. She hates the changes made for the adaptation, because that was created to be inspired by the original and appeal to a wider audience. So that means it needs to all change in 20 days. We see what this does to the original screenplay writer, the actors, the production, and Abiko herself. We come to understand what her insistence and demands could really do, as well as better understand the nature of adaptational work.

It means that volume 5 of Oshi no Ko can feel a bit different than the manga usually does. The play Aqua, Akane, and Kana ends up being more important than individual developments for any of them. That does mean insight into a process that people don't normally see though, which is valuable in its own way.

Volume 5 of Oshi no Ko is available now, and Yen Press will release volume 6 on May 21, 2024.
