‘Race the Sun': An insanely addictive racer with a remarkably original premise

As a kid, I used to love racing games. From Super Mario Kart to Wave Race or San Francisco Rush, my formative years were filled with a brimming affinity for competitive racing, particularly when I could wrangle a compadre for some couch-bound multiplayer. However, as I got older, and friends who gamed regularly were busier or harder to come by, my interests shifted away from genres like sports, fighting or racing, that relied on having another person to help you enjoy the game.

First up, on PlayStation 4, Ether One and acclaimed indie platformer Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition will topline the offerings on Sony’s current-gen hardware, though console owners will be pleased to note that cross-buy will enable them to enjoy the other offerings, too.

One of the main reasons I purchased both the Wii U and the New 3Ds, is for their virtual game library which includes classics from the Nes, Super Nes and Gameboy eras, along with other systems such as N64, Sega Master System, Genesis and Neo Geo when clicking into the Wii menu.
