Review: BIG-Bobby-Car - The Big Race - Chugs A Bit, But Fine For A First Little Runabout
Life in plastic, it's fantastic(ally average). We’ve seen some odd licensed karting games in our time but the BIG Bobby Car is certainly one of the most left-field ones we’ve come across, even though it does make sense when you think about it. For those not in the know, the BIG Bobby Car is a plastic ride-on car for young children that’s been on sale in Germany since the early 1970s.

Surprise! Splatoon 3 announced for Switch
Surprise! Splatoon 3 announced for Switch
It barely seems like yesterday we waved goodbye to Splatoon 2's last ever Splatfest (it was in January, as it happens), but Nintendo is already raring to get back out onto the battlefield, this time in form of the newly announced Splatoon 3...but you'll have to wait until 2022. Aside from that rather hilariously anticlimactic release date revelation, the rest of Nintendo's announcement trailer is a hoot, featuring a squid kid and companion chum wandering across a post-apocalyptic desert wilderness - complete with upended Eiffel Tower. One rusty train ride later and we're in the chaotic high-rise sprawl of a brand-new plaza, known as Splatsville, at which point Nintendo graciously swaps cinematics for a first proper look at Splatoon 3's take on the series' familiar paint-flinging gunplay.
