The Week In Games: Start Your Engines!

Trials Rising

Trials Rising, the newest entry in the dirt bike filled franchise, releases this Tuesday. I’ve been a fan of the Trials games since playing Trials HD back on my Xbox 360. I didn’t really play much of Trials Fusion, the previous game in the franchise. I have no idea why other than I was busy with other things.

I’ve never been on a dirt bike in my entire life, but I have driven a four wheeler a few times. Once when I was about 12 or 13 I drove a four wheeler into a lake. I was driving on a small strip of land. On one side was a small lake and on the other side a sheer drop into trees and rocks. I made the right call.

The upcoming week is packed with games for everyone. A few Vita releases, some stuff for Mac gamers and as always a bunch of Switch releases. DIRT Rally 2.0 is a great choice for folks who want to drive really fast, but don’t like dirt bikes. We also get a new Dead or Alive this week. I wonder what Zack is up to know!? Finally, ToeJam & Earl return to your gaming console of choice this week. Will they rap? Will they explore weird islands? Probably!

Toe Jam and Earl should have been the title image for this week.  Biased because I grew up in Funkotron?  Maybe.  Maybe.
