Westward in Review – Worth riding off into the sunset with?

westward5There’s nothing quite like coming to a new world or city, to find out it hasn’t been developed yet.  Welcome to Westward pardner!  You are among the first settlers in the West!!

slotz1Racing games.  It feels like I’ve played them since the beginning of time.  I remember playing Turbo on my ColecoVision (I know… what the heck is/was a ColecoVision?).  I played Pole Position and OutRun in the arcades, and the updated racers from Need for Speed, Forza to Burnout.  I don’t want to toot my own horn (no pun intended) but I’m pretty good at them…
