Review: Forza Motorsport 5 photo
Review: Forza Motorsport 5
by Dale North

We've had plenty of racing games come out at console launches, but we've never had a Forza Motorsport game. Don't get me wrong -- I love powersliding around silly tracks while rocking out to Japanese techno anthems. It's just that as a racing fan, I'll end up wanting more later.

Where your typical launch racer might be a tasty fast food cheeseburger, a new Forza game would be like a dry-aged cowboy ribeye, broiled medium, and topped with butter and grilled onions. I want more. I want something I can sink my teeth into. I want something that will leave me full and satisfied, fat and happy.

The Forza Motorsport 5 Car Pass is kind of gross

It's usually not particularly surprising when a major release announces that it's sashaying to market with a season pass in tow. I mean, we live in a time where the game you bought isn't the game you get, as former EA CEO Joh...

I hope you like these new Xbox One racing wheels...

There's big talk of "equation language" for new kinds of force feedback in this Xbox One racing accessories video, and that sounds neat and all, but I think Microsoft is going to find that racing fans are going to push back o...

First Forza 5 direct feed video shows Alps course

YouTube can't keep up here, but you can at least watch this direct footage from Forza Motorsport 5 to get some idea of what the Xbox One can do for racing games. Even after being butchered by compression and frame rate chang...

Forza Motorsport 5 is set to lead the next-gen pack
by Dale North

We'll start by saying that what we were able to see of Forza Motorsport 5 was not nearly enough. Though Turn 10's next game is slated to be a launch title for the Xbox One this fall, they were only offering a sneak peek at E3 2013.

Still, what we saw was enough to know that we're in for something bigger and better with Forza 5
