Street Trace: NYC Preview — Gameplay

NYC #1

The good people at Gaia Industries were nice enough to give me a private look at their upcoming game, Street Trace: NYC (including schooling me in some multiplayer, thanks Damon!).  The result of that sneak peak can be found at XBLArcade.com in my 3-part preview.  Part one is up now and more parts are soon to follow.  Go here, read stuff.  For a taste of my preview, click below.

You have to suspend your immediate confusion when I explain the mashup (I swear everyone is doing the mashup these days) that is Street Trace: NYC.  It’s a hoverboard game with guns.  There, I said it.  And, I have to be honest — when I first saw this game at DigitalLife in NYC, I was a little baffled by the concept.  Maybe part of the problem then was that it was surrounded by games I was already interested in: Mutant Storm Empires, Lumines Live, Small Arms, and many more.  Street Trace: NYC seemed like the bastard child of the XBLA family.  But now, after playing it, I think this game has a legimate chance.  (See what I did there, nudge nudge.)
