So today’s new releases cover the joys of Mudville and the fine folks who pretty much work exclusively in mud. Out of the literal starting gate is PlayMates Interactive’s VMX Racing. I’ve never been good at these types of games, and considering the amount of negative flak the game’s been getting in the early reviews, I think I’ll just hold off on playing it today.
Our other newbie today is Sony’s latest update to their baseball franchise, MLB 98. Having dropped the ‘Pennant Race’ from the name, the now rather boringly named diamond cutter is proving its worth at the sales counter, as reviews from other sites are pouring in singing the game’s praises. No one has ever really challenged EA Sports’ legacy, but it looks like a certain company is about to throw down the baseball glov…gauntlet.
No more new releases till August, so start finishing those games!
