In Review: Steel Rats

In my mind, I like to think Steel Rats was conceived at 3am by a load of drunken game devs. Stumbling home, one of them drunkenly slurs, “Listen, listen, I’ve got… an idea..”

“Let’s make a game about motorbikes with sawblades for wheels.” And lo. It was done.

Another week, another video game review. This time round, I got my leather biker gloves around the handlebars of Steel Rats, the latest entry into the clearly overcrowded 2.5D stunt-bike puzzle brawler market. It’s a blast to play, and well worth a look if you’re a fan of arcade games.

Almost as if the gaping circumference held us in its own gravity well, drawing us forever closer,

Welcome back, old memories.

GAZE UPON THE ABYSS

Seen at the Sackler gallery in London. As far as tributes go, this is one of the most tasteful I’ve ever seen.

But it begs the question: is the artist naive for not knowing the connotations, or am I a horrible person for assuming what it is.

I think I’m probably the horrible person.
