Rayman Legends and Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed Announced! …And Good Game: SP

Over the last few days, two new games have been announced; one, a sequel to Rayman Origins and the other, a sequel to Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing.

So what 2D side-scroller could possibly look better than Rayman Origins? Rayman Legends. That’s what.  As what we see in the trailer, Ubisoft have listened to fans and given us an online option as well as extra things to do in local multiplayer. While Rayman Origins was highly critically acclaimed, one of its few flaws was the lack of online multiplayer. So as long as they keep the platforming as good as the first game, then it will be well recieved, right? Especially that other feature towards the end of the trailer, where if a ubisoft character model is placed on to the controller, it appears in the game! I bet you were all hoping to see what would happen when he puts Ezio in, hey?

No doubt we’ll see some more info on Rayman Legends during E3 this year! Now I’d like to show you a trailer for a sequel for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, called: Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed

S&ASR:T (No, I didn’t make a typo, they really did take the “SEGA” out of the title) is another racing title, only in this version your vehicle is able to transform to be able to run on water, in the air and obviously on land. Some may think that this is a rip off Mario Kart 7 in which the racing karts also transformed to run  through water, air and on land, but there are some major differences, as Joe Neate, the producer of the game explains in an interview…

The main differences are that in Mario Kart 7, the extra surfaces act as a simple add on to the main track, in the underwater segments it acts almost exactly the same, only with slightly altered physics, while in the air it contains quick segments of the kart hangliding. The difference here is that Mario Kart 7 could not have the entire game based underwater or in the air. In S&ASR:T, they could. The flying segments play like a flying game (for example PilotWings Resort), the water segments play like a water sports game and the land segments play like a racing game . But Since it’d just be so much more awesome to have all three in one game, that’s what the developers did.

In other Sonic news, SEGA have just released an update for the S&SASR on iPhone/iPod/iPad. This update gives you two more characters – Knuckles and Shadow, as well as a new level and some bug fixes. And to get you excited, book publishers: Pix ‘N Love are going to release a “History of Sonic” book in June. If you can’t wait until then, you can buy one now, but bear in mind that the version that’s out now is in French, so if you want an English version, you’ll have to wait until June.

Last of all for this post, the latest episode of Good Game: Spawn Point, which you can watch here.

This time around, Bajo and Hex review The Splatters and Ridge Racer Unbounded, yet no reviews for Kid Icarus: Uprising! No news for it on their other show either.

Well, that’s all for now!
