If you're as big of a fan of off-road driving games as I am, I'm sure you've played MudRunner or SnowRunner in the past. From the creators of those games comes a new exciting game in the series: Expeditions: A Mudrunner Game. Expeditions will expand on the open world concept of previous games, by bringing us more long distance challenges and journeys. While maintaining the co-op online game play we've grown to love. Looks like they're adding in some elements of scientific expeditions, which should be interesting. A ton of new vehicles with customization options as before. From the trailer I spotted a vehicle looking similar to an International Scout! I'm excited to see the stock vehicle offerings expand. Not that there arn't a ton of great mods to add into the current games. Trust me that's a rabbit hole in itself. The new terrain and theming looks fun as well. In the trailer I saw an RV that looks very much like a nod to Breaking Bad. But I'm excited about the new worlds and look forward to seeing what this game is all about. Watch the trailer below and you'll see what I mean. Till next time, keep the shinny side up!
Expeditions will be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2024.
Ever dream big? I mean like four or more movie cars in your yard big? Well I do! You can too, thanks to a little game called House Flipper. It's a fun game where you're a handy person turn house flipper. You pickup odd jobs to learn skills and earn cash. Eventually you'll get to flipping rooms and whole houses. Even mowing the grass. I recently picked this game back up. It's a ton of fun. A friend, brought to my attention some mods to allow you to bring famous cars into the game. To say I was excited as a four year old and cookie would be an understatement. How can you get these great assets? Navigate to Big Hungry Chicken's Workshop page on Steam for these add-ons. There's a few on there (Back to the Future Delorean, Ghostbusters Ecto 1, Knight Rider's KITT, A-Team Van and more. Looks like they're expanding their collection. Thanks Big Hungry Chicken! Happy Flipp'n
Looking for something new to do in GTA 5? How about tv/movie car collecting? Believe it or not without modding you can find some really cool on screen cars in GTA 5 and GTA 5 Online. Amazing how even the cars themselves are named in relation to what tv/movie car they go with. Often video game companies have not paid for the licencing to use the official names. For example the 69' Dodge Charger is called Dukes. Very obvious what they were thinking there. But this car could easily be painted/skinned and configured to look like a 68' Charger from Fast and the Furious. Just use your imagination and the sky is limitless. There's been a ton of videos (one below) on this. But I thought I would show some of highlights and give you some links for more information. Happy collecting!
Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters of course. Especially if you play the Facebook Game - Car Town. If you haven't heard of Car Town checkout one of our earlier posts. Otherwise here's another reason to come back or try it out. After today's addition to the game. Guest will now have access to the Ghostbuster's Firehouse! Check out the screenshot above. In the new Ghostbuster Central there are a few new jobs you can do. You can create a team to help you bust ghosts. This will allow you to trick out a ECTO 1 for your collection. The team at Car Town did a bang up job of decking it out the new area. Slimer, A Trap, Protron Pack, The Containment Unit to name some of what content you will see. So what ya waiting for? Get Bust'n!
January 2021 Update
Car Town has long since been dead. Such a shame. Was such a neat little game.
The Twisted Metal franchise is back (for those living under a rock). The lastest release is the first title in over 7 years. But I think it's well worth the wait. The game has a short but interesting story told through chapters. I have to say it's defiantly a treat for the adults (sorry kids it's a little rough). If you were a fan of series from back in the day then check this out. I think you'll find some interesting vehicles. I know I did.
After playing for a while I found a few cars I liked. But one really stuck out. That was Meat Wagon. If you look at the photos above and below you can see why. Meat wagon has a resemblance to the Ghostbusters ECTO 1. That's because it's based off a 1959 Miller Meteor Cadillac ambulance. Sorry Meat Wagon's special ability is not a proton back. But a more morbid form of artillery.
That being some poor guy with a bomb strapped down to a gurney. The gurney can be launched from the front or behind. The nearest target will receive the blast. The gurney used primary automatically homes in, but secondary the player can guide the gurney. Pretty neat stuff.
According to Twisted Metal Wiki The original concept art for Meat Wagon was a very modern looking ambulance. Glad the team went with this direction. Makes for a great On Screen Car. A real conversation piece. Haven't played Twisted Metal for the PS3 yet? Then be sure to check it out on Amazon. This game make for a great game night. Especially the co-op and death-match modes. I know my friends and I did enjoy this one.
