Neon Nights ‘Rocket League’ event starts now!
The Latest “Rocket League” event here and its theme is… well, to be honest the theme is basically just musical artist Grimes. Apparently, the singer was working on some sort of space opera concept album, and this event ties in with that. Like most events, it brings new challenges, a new limited time mode called Heatseeker Ricochet, and new unlockable items, this time called Golden Moons, but basically still just old lootboxes definitely not something you know and love. In addition to the unlockable event items, the “Rocket League” team is also celebrating the Lunar New Year with a free “Year of the Tiger” Pack in the item shop, which includes a tiny Topper Tiger and a Tyger Decal. The event is happening right now and ends on February 8th.
Unlockable event items:
- Gravitator Topper
- Space Queen Topper
- Braided Trail
- Decal GRIMES
- GRIMES wheel
- GRIMES . Player Banner
- Fireworks Universal Wallpaper (Multicolor)
- “Player of Games – GRIMES” Player Anthem
- Player Song “Shinigami Eyes – GRIMES”

‘Circuit Superstars’ is now on PS4
“Circuit Superstars” is a top-down charismatic racer like the Micro Machine that’s been on PC and Xbox for a few months now. We played the game on our weekly live stream and find it challenging but fun. Starting now, you’ll also be able to play the game on the Playstation 4, with a Nintendo Switch version slated for a Q2 release later this year. Impressively, the game features cross-play, which means you’ll be able to play with your friends regardless of what system they’re using. If you’re a PS player who’s been into some mini-racing, this game is well worth checking out.
