GTA 5 Online Revives Classic Top-Down Camera For A New Mode

As promised, Grand Theft Auto V is going old-school with a new mode in GTA Online.
Before it shifted to a traditional third-person perspective and became one of the biggest franchises in gaming, Grand Theft Auto featured a top-down camera view. Rockstar is bringing that back with Tiny Racers, a new take on the game's stunt races that forces an overhead perspective a la GTA and GTA 2.
Details are still scant; we know it's arriving on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on April 25, but we otherwise have no information beyond what's seen in the trailer above.
While we wait for that, Rockstar is offering one-day bonuses in GTA Online to mark today's 4/20 date. Today only, weed farm business and business upgrades are 50% off, and profits derived from weed sales will net 50% more money. Additionally, if you head over to LS Customs, the green tire smoke upgrade can be purchased for half price.
These bonuses come in addition to those already announced earlier this week, when Rockstar al..

Nintendo Switch EShop Adds Its Second New Game This Week

Nintendo Switch owners looking for something new to play have a pair of new options this week on the eShop.
New today is yet another ACA Neo Geo release. This one is Fatal Fury, the classic 1991 fighting game from SNK. Like the other ACA games on Switch, such as Metal Slug and Samurai Shodown IV, it's priced at $8 (£6.29).
Fatal Fury follows a more significant eShop release on Tuesday, when Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap debuted for $20 (£18). Wonder Boy was one of quite a few remasters that launched this week, though it was the only one to come to Switch (at least for now). As our review states, it's still a strong game, maintaining the original's classic gameplay while offering an optional new visual style that looks absolutely fantastic.
Switch's next big release comes on April 28, when Mario Kart 8 Deluxe arrives. This enhanced port of the Wii U game packs in new characters and an expanded Battle mode, among other things. For more on that, check out GameSpot..

Dawn Of War 3 Review Roundup

The latest Warhammer 40,000 game, Dawn of War III, is nearly upon us. The title is a follow-up to 2009's Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, itself a sequel to the 2004 original, and it aims to combine the best bits of those two games and add in some larger-scale action in the form of super-sized units. But is it successful?
Well, with its April 27 launch just a few days away, reviews have started to go live for Relic Entertainment's RTS title. In GameSpot's review, critic Daniel Starkey said the game “builds and maintains an organic tension that yields huge pay-offs … there's nothing else quite like it.” Read more in our full Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III review, or watch some gameplay here. If you want to try it for yourself, meanwhile, you can try the open beta starting April 21.
