Xbox Store Today: Slime Rancher (Game Preview), F1 2016

xboxgamesstore-logoA pair of new games are now available to download through the Xbox Games Store…

First up is Slime Rancher, a first-person “life simulator” from developer Monomi Park that launched today as part of the Xbox Game Preview program. Players will take control of Beatrix LeBeau, a “plucky, young rancher” who wants to build a fortune by wrangling slimes on a distant planet called the “Far, Far Range.” I wonder if that’s in a galaxy near there?

Also available today is F1 2016, the latest open wheel racing sim from Codemasters. The newest Formula One racer includes “the full 2016 season calendar of 21 tracks,” as well as “the full roster of 22 drivers and 11 teams” and a brand new Career Mode.

More information about both of these games can be found after the break. (more…)

Inversus, Grow Up, Uno, more added to PlayStation Store

There’s a nice mix of new games available to download from the PlayStation Store this week. So let’s get right too it…

Inversus is a minimalist overhead shooter for the PS4 that ties your path of movement and attack to a black-and-white grid. Single-player and multiplayer options (both local and online) will give players plenty of opportunities for competition.

Also available this week is Grow Up, a PS4 platformer from Ubisoft that stars BUD, “an adorable yet clumsy, stumbling, tumbling robot.” And speaking of Ubisoft, the publisher will also bring a new version of Uno, everyone’s favorite card game, to the PS4 this week.

Finally this week, Codemasters is giving the green light to their latest open wheel racing simulator, F1 2016. It’ll be available for the PS4 on Friday, August 19.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

New Retail Releases: Metroid Prime Federation Force, Style Savvy 3, F1 2016, More


It seems like everyone who talks about Nintendo nowadays wants to talk about the NX, but the consolemaker is still releasing games for the 3DS, including this week’s launch of Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Style Savvy: Fashion Forward.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a co-op-focused spinoff from the main Metroid series and won’t star intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran. Instead, players will join up with a squad of Galactic Federation Marines as they do battle with Metroids and Space Pirates on a distant planet.

Meanwhile, Style Savvy: Fashion Forward is the third game in Nintendo’s fashion franchise, and it’ll give budding fashionistas the chance to design the perfect outfit with thousands of choices.

Steeping away from Nintendo, Codemasters will release F1 2016 for the PS4 and Xbox One. The latest racing simulation from the British developer follows the FIA Formula One World Championship, and includes 21 tracks and 22 drivers.

Finally this week, Krillbite will release a retail version of Among the Sleep for the PS4. Among the Sleep is a first-person game where players take control of a young toddler investigating the strange noises in his house. Is it the Bogeyman? or is it just a shadow?

The real question is, when you’re a toddler, does it make a difference?

Codemasters announces F1 2016 for PC, PS4, Xbox One


Codemasters gave the green light to F1 2016 this morning, and publisher Deep Silver confirmed the racing game will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One this Summer. Once again, the developer is pumping even more realism into the game, and F1 2016 will feature an expanded Career Mode with the option to create your own racer for the first time.

Principal Game Designer Lee Mather had a bit to say about the team’s vision for F1 2016 at the Codies Blog:

“F1 2016 is a massive step forward for the franchise. The new Career Mode sits at the heart of the game and allows gamers to create their own legend over a career that can span for up to a massive ten seasons. Beyond improving upon the fastest and most thrilling on-track racing experience in gaming, F1 2016 uniquely offers the drama and vehicle development that goes on behind the scenes. A rich car upgrade system is fully integrated into a new and deep practice development programme which mirrors the tests carried out by the teams in real life.”

The Create-A-Racer option in Career Mode will give F1 2016 players the chance to build their own avatar in the game’s world. This includes choosing a number for your car, as well as a custom helmet and the ability to jump between teams in search of a new contract. Of course, players can also stick with the same team and develop it into a championship contender after upgrading their car with new the Research and Development system.

Codemasters will reveal more about F1 2016 at this year’s E3 Expo, but a handful of screenshots and additional details about the Career Mode are available now at the Codies Blog.
