The 90′s Arcade Racer Shows Off Wii U Gameplay

The aptly-named The 90's Arcade Racer showed off smooth Wii U gameplay today. The video, which shows the game running at 720p and 60 frames per second, takes players through the menus and right into the action of this retro racer inspired by the likes of Daytona U.S.A. and other classic arcade titles.

The 90's Arcade Racer is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $ 25,000. Though it was originally a single-person project, the team at Nicalis eventually joined up to assist with development. The video shows off good-looking locales that range from ocean-front streets to a town in the mountains, to even a miniature track assembled in a child's playroom. The physics are meant to be an homage to handling in the racing games that populated the arcades of the 1990s. You can check out the latest Wii U gameplay footage below.

In addition to coming to Wii U, The 90's Arcade Racer will also be launching on PC, Mac, Linux, and mobile devices.

Partially Compiled ‘Hunt The Truth’ Halo 5 Image Shows Blue Team Together

After scouring social media accounts and various news outlets, a Reddit member has compiled several images sent by Microsoft to reveal a larger image. While the image isn't complete yet, the first fully completed section has revealed an image of Blue Team, Master Chief's group of SPARTAN-IIs from before the events of Halo: Combat Evolved.

Thanks to ChiefCanuck, we have a full look at Blue Team, which currently consists of John-117 (Master Chief), Frederic-104, Kelly-087, and Linda-058. The team first appeared in The Fall of Reach, a novel that served as a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved. Since then, Blue Team has appeared in several novels and comics. Blue Team also appeared in the acclaimed Forward Unto Dawn live-action film.

The image above was taken from a much larger picture compiled by members of the ReadyUpLive community on Reddit. To check out the full compiled image, you can head here. Halo 5: Guardians is scheduled to hit Xbox One on October 27.

Our Take
This certainly took some dedication on the part of the Reddit community. This look at Blue Team could mean anything for its participation in the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians, but it would be great to see them reunited within a game.

Playtonic Games Shows Its Banjo-Kazooie Successor’s First Fully Animated Character

Playtonic Games has been offering small teases for its Banjo-Kazooie successor, code named Project Ukelele, and the latest shows a fully animated character.

It's not the game's main character, who we've only presumably seen hidden in some of the game's first pieces of art. Instead, it's one of the game's minions offered as a reward for the studio reaching 30,000 twitter followers. You can check out the character below.

If you're unfamiliar with Playtonic Games and Project Ukelele, it's a young studio made of former Rare developers who worked extensively on titles like Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64, among other Rare titles. Project Ukelele is the studios' still mostly shrouded in secret, self-defined Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor. You can learn more about the studio and its game here, here, here, and here. We will learn a lot more about the game next month, when the studio will launch its Kickstarter initiative to fund the game's development.

Our Take
That  guy certainly looks like a Banjo-Kazooie enemy, which should be excited for those who want Banjo-Kazooie-flavored classic platformer from the folks who helped establish the genre. I'm looking forward to learning more about the game.
