Several bullets punctured the grill of the car and shattered window glass as newspaper stands passing by exploded into clouds of shredded paper, but Rex didn’t mind, this was a slow Tuesday. He cracked his neck and shifted his Trans Am into fifth gear. The Trans Am roared and obeyed its master. The car he was pursuing veered left onto the next street. Rex grabbed the parking break and slid into the turn, his car howling in eager pursuit. The two cars sped through the city’s night life barely dodging pedestrians and other cars. A small man popped out of the fleeing car’s passenger window with a freshly reloaded automatic rifle. His eyes connected with Rex’s, which only read do it.
The man squeezed the trigger. Rex hit the gas. The man’s face lit up from the muzzle flash as bullets spewed wildly from the mouth of the gun. The Trans Am’s windshield was decimated. Like an eagle swooping in on its prey, Rex’s car slammed into the rear corner, causing the other car to spin out of control. As the car spun violently to the right, the man with the machine gun flew onto Rex’s hood. Rex reached out and grabbed the man by the back of the head and slammed it against metal. As he lifted the man’s head to repeat the process, the little man with impeccable agility pulled a knife from his boot and drove it straight into Rex’s chest. Still going a hundred miles an hour, Rex swerved as he pulled the knife from his chest. The cigarettes in his jacket pocket had done their best to stop the knife from puncturing him completely. Rex gripped the knife and returned the favor.

Crowded city blocks. Muscle cars. Criminals with guns. For Rex the detective, no amount of collateral damage will stop him from bringing in the bad guys. During a dangerous and risky mountain trek at the peak of winter, Everitt’s life and his partner’s are threatened when a simple slip on the ice causes them to slide towards the edge. Mountain demands its main character choose between his life, or no life at all. In Replacers, Captain Harper is betrayed by a member of his crew and his ship is stranded in the orbit of some distant sun. With the looming destruction ahead, Harper is forced to use a piece of equipment that will save himself and his team, but it comes at a price that could threaten to make him the author of his own demise.
