The Week In Games: Race Together, Die Alone

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Race Together, Die Alone

Get ready to go fast! Team Sonic Racing is speeding into stores this week for all major platforms. Our own Mike Fahey enjoyed the game, calling it “...a very good kart racer with a game-changing co-op twist.”


So we are getting a new kart racer featuring Sonic and then in June another kart racer starring Crash Bandicoot. Are kart racers coming back in a big way? That would be cool. The previous Sonic kart racer was fun and Mario Karts are always a good time. I’d love to see more kart racers from more franchises. Maybe it’s time for a new Super Bombad Racing?

Beyond Team Sonic Racing, a whole bunch of other stuff is coming out this week. For Resident Evil fans, get ready. RE4, RE0 and REmake are coming to Switch this week. I can’t wait to buy RE4, again. Also Sometimes to Deal with the Difficulty of Being Alive, I Need to Believe There Is a Possibility That Life Is Not Real wins the award for the longest title this week. Congratulations, you odd looking game.

I really hope the word on Sonic Team Racing is good; I’m still a bit hesitant because I LOVE LOVE LOVED the Sega Smash Bros. approach in the All-Stars games to stages and tracks (NIGHTS!!!), and trimming that away for Sonic’s dipshit preschooler supporting cast is iffy for me.

Intrigued by the team mechanic, sounds part racer, part Onrush.
