Here's some shiny gameplay footage of GRID 2

Not including downloadable content, ports, and offbeat racers like Mario Kart, there's really no major racing games slated for this year from a major publisher or pre-existing brand other than GRID 2 here. That puts Codemasters in a pretty...

GRID 2 gets a new gameplay teaser trailer

Some time ago, we got a nondescript trailer for GRID 2 that showed nothing more than cars doing car-like things. As of today however, a new trailer has surfaced, showing a bit of gameplay. When asked about the drifting aspect of the game, ...

GRID 2 travels to Chicago and California in latest videos

While this isn't our first glimpse at Codemasters' GRID 2, it is a nice, no-nonsense demonstration of the sim racing title spread across two separate videos. The first centers around a Chicago street race, while the second video, embedded ...

GRID 2 is headed to Xbox 360, PS3, and PC in 2013

Among the four-letter racing games to come out in the last five years, I never did get around to playing GRID, despite generally liking the work Codemasters does in the genre. We knew a follow-up game was in order, and thankfully, they did...

Review: DiRT Showdown

The DiRT series is well-known for its Rally-style racing, accurate and realistic physics, and bare-knuckle driving action. Spawned from the Colin McCrae series of Rally games, DiRT took off on next-gen consoles for fans looking for something a little different than the regular slew of gearhead and arcade racing games available on the market. This is not your father's DiRT game.   read

DiRT Showdown arriving on May 29th, have a trailer

It's crazy to think DiRT: Showdown is finally almost here. Wait, didn't DiRT 3 just come out? The "Complete Edition" of it just came out last month as well. Wow, Codemasters are not wasting any time these days. DiRT Showdown is a brand-new...

DiRT Showdown's damage is massive

Oh hey, it's a new trailer for DiRT: Showdown, the next entry to the long running rally series from Codemasters. After DiRT 3 ruffled some feathers with it's diminished focus on pure rally racing, Codemasters decided to split the Gymk...

Sigh: 'New' Dizzy game is an iOS/Android remake

Review: Bodycount

Codemasters working on a new racing IP

I'm more than happy to buy any racing game that Codemasters puts out. At this point I know it's going to be a good title that I'll get my money's worth from. If they do some NASCAR sh*t I'll kill them, though I'm fine with anything else.&nb...
