Cars, Where the Wild Things Are, and Cities XL

Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week for games, we preview Cars Race-O-Rama, Where the Wild Things Are, and Cities XL!

Cars Race-O-Rama

Yes, it's that Cars, the Disney/Pixar film with Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson, Tater, and all the rest. This is indeed a racing game, but with a flair that matches the movie's main man's moxie. You can customize various parts of Lightning McQueen, then race him throughout both the regular game and some interesting mini-games, like the Mack Track Challenge. Lightning can drift through turns now, and just to make it more stylish, pull off his patented poses for reporters. And don't think that you'll just be turning left over and over in the traditional oval track. This game has city street courses, a desert course, and a beach track in Santa Carburera.


Where the Wild Things Are

The book has become a movie, and the movie has become a game. Where the Wild Things Are (the video game) takes the awesome atmosphere and sounds of the movie get combined with the world and characters of Maurice Sendak's book to make this game. You play as Max, solving some action-platformer style puzzles and interacting with the Wild Things as their king. The really unique look and feel of the movie seem to have been reflected in this game very, very well.


Cities XL

The SimCity series has been working with the same successful city-building game formula since before you were probably born. Their last couple of games, though, like SimCity Societies, left a lot of people feeling that the series was becoming a bit stale. Now, with Cities XL, another company is finally giving the genre a shot, making a city-builder that can be played as an MMO! If you subscribe to the online portion of the game, then your city will exist on the same planet as thousands of others online, trading commodities and linking traffic, and what-have-you. Even the offline portion seems to be going back to what made earlier SimCity games great in the first place.

Oh trust me, I know a pc is better. But when a console is slower then a console that is technically weaker. That is just, bad.

The internet browser on the PS4 is BAD not as bad as internet explorer 6 but still pretty bad. I will start with the little things., It is slower then the Wii U's browser (Wii U is an inferior console in terms of processing power.) Scrolling on the PS4 has been dumped down. While the PS3's browser wasn't as good. At least it could scroll smoothly. When you get too much cache on your browser, the browser will load slower, and when you type it takes for ever for the PS4 to register the letter that you have selected.

The playstation 1's Spyro/Crash beats most of Nintendo games in terms of fun and quality. I tend to get bored of Mario faster then getting bored of Spyro. Because Mario tends to reuse the same enemies and same gameplay. Not including spin ops. Spyro does use the same concepts but there are also little challenges which kinda give the the player a break away from the game.
