Coming Out — June 17

Posted on June 17, 2019

Coming out this week, starting June 17, we’ve been off for a few weeks across the bedlam of E3 but we are back at it again.

Our top pick this week?

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

A classic title that was beloved by many, CTR was one of the few kart racers that actually stood a chance against the powerhouse of Mario Kart.

After the success of the remastered Crash Bandicoot N’Sane Trilogy it’s exciting to see this one looking better than ever, and apparently playing just as smoothly as you remember.

But now let’s be real…GIVE US CRASH BASH!
