The Baja 1000 hosts some of the most hardcore off-road racing imaginable. In the marquee race, million-dollar cars battle for over 1000 miles, and each year there are reports of booby traps and spectator-created jumps and obstacles - built for their amusement. There are no closed streets - no, these madmen race through civilian traffic.
Just as Baja racing is the ultimate in off-road racing, the MX vs. ATV team is building what they'd
If you’ve no idea what Baja is, our first preview covers the basics: it’s deserty, it’s off-roady, and it involves racing. It’s brown, with cacti, and mesas, and cloudy skies. It looks a bit like Pure, MotorStorm, Colin McRae Dirt, MX vs. ATV, and the others.
But having been done before isn’t a reason to avoid a genre – at no point in the near future do we expect Epic and Bungie to call it quits on
Guitar Hero with a real guitar, haven’t we heard this before? Could Bandfuse be the game that finally fulfills that promise?
Play along and learn rock favorites, create your own tracks, and share it with the world. Bandfuse looks like it might be the wannabe gaming musicians’ best friend.

We’re hoping that even if the words Bangai-O are unfamiliar, the other words in the title, Missile Fury, spark interest in the reptilian part of the brain.

The Bangai-O series has been around since the Dreamcast days, but it served up some missile lovin’ most recently on the Nintendo DS with Bangai-O Spirits. It has never had a proper HD version, so we’re happy to see this latest installment coming along, although we also wish it was on PSN as well, and not XBLA exclusive...
The new Banjo-Kazooie is not a racing game. It is, despite appearances, very much a platformer. Even for a Rare title, the blend of concept and gameplay is a bizarre one, and, we’re not going to lie to you, it doesn’t feel much like the comparatively simple Banjo games of the N64 era. Nuts & Bolts is a brand new start for the franchise, and based on what we’ve seen, we reckon its quirky approach might just work...
Back in April Microsoft invited a handful of press to spend a day inside the barns of Rare's HQ for the world's first look and play of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. They made us sit through Viva Pinata 2 first, but it was still worth it. Because when Willy Wonka opens the doors to his factory, you drop everything and make travel arrangements. This was the moment we'd been waiting for since the game was announced in September
