You can't go wrong with the Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare Collection ($9.99) or Max Payne 3 ($4.99). Bully ($2.49), a PS2 Class... more
It's a pleasant sight indeed to see "Forza Motorsport 5 DLC" and "free" in the same sentence.
The game, which one in three Xbox One owners have picked up, according to Microsoft, is getting a free track based on Road America... more
Project Cars comes from Need for Speed: Shift developer Slightly Mad. It's their first shot at their crowd powered "World of Mass Development" portal that attempts to leap frog traditional publishing costs. It's been "crowd ... more
So, the Super Bowl was yesterday, huh? I bet you either love sports, or hates sports, or are somewhere between those two extremes. Maybe you're even really apathetic about them. What an interesting and unique viewpoint you p... more
Beatshapers, responsible for developing and publishing a stable of PSN releases (Furmins, Jetpack Joyride, Canabalt), just announced its new PS4 game, Ready to Run. They're not taking a brake, not taking their foot off the g... more
FlatOut maker Bugbear Entertainment's Next Car Game has loads of potential -- have you seen the impressive destruction physics? -- but it didn't find a proper audience on Kickstarter. Before the campaign could come to a sad c... more
LocoCycle is a pretty flawed game, but if you're looking for a bit of silly fun it can deliver on a rainy afternoon. Previously it was an Xbox One timed exclusive, but now developer Twisted Pixel has announced that it wi... more

This will probably blow your mind, but the movie based on a videogame franchise about cars going really fast is going to involve cars going really fast. That's pretty much the extent of the criteria for slapping the Need for... more
Are you a car person? It's so weird talking about cars to someone that isn't a car person. It's like when someone talks about football to me. I always just picture a televised game in super fast forward, where the damned bal... more
The lovely, successful Kickstarter game Sir, You Are Being Hunted is sitting in an alpha state. I'm eagerly awaiting its completion -- it's expected to be in beta within a few months -- so I can be chased around an island fo... more
At Nvidia's CES booth, Project Cars is running on 3 4K screens here -- 4K surround, if you will. That means you're seeing 11,520 by 2,160, or 1.5 billion pixels per second! I gave it a spin on an Origin PC running quad-SLI, u... more
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a bona fide hit in my mind. I've had more fun with it this past year than any recent Mario Kart, and there's so much content to find, it's insane. Sumo Digital really did a gre... more

With everything going on in this Mario Kart 8 trailer, I'm once again left confused as to why no one came up with a more memorable title for the game. Regardless, it's looking great as ever, and should be yet another convinc... more

YouTube user Radical Dreamer has stumbled upon an exploit in Gran Turismo 6 that can generate 20 million credits in a matter of minutes. Sounds too good to be true, right? I had Dale test out the glitch and he ran into some ... more
Have you ever hopped into your car just to drive? Driving to enjoy being behind the wheel, I mean. I'm talking no destination, no time constraints -- just being in a car to connect with a machine and the road it's on.
The rumors were true! After you work your way through a bit of the career mode of Gran Turismo 6, a Lunar Exploration mode unlocks. In it, you'll take a moon vehicle across the lunar surface in three different missions. ... more
I've been playing Gran Turismo 6 for so many hours that I can no longer see straight. I'm not pulling your leg when I say that I dreamed about Gran Turismo last night. I had racing stress dreams, folks.
So what's the hold-up ... more

Remember when everyone was down on Forza 5 for having microtransactions on top of its premium price? Well we already know that Gran Turismo 6 will have the same scheme, but Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida is telling p... more

One of the best parts of Forza games is the deep car customization, and Forza 5 is no exception. Xbox One user Nill31 seems to be of the same mindset, as they created this amazing new Wind Waker themed ca... more
Race the Sun has had quite the interesting launch. After releasing straight from the developer's website, the game's creators ran into a major snag -- they weren't on Steam. Despite the fact that sales numbers weren't qu... more
If you've been playing Forza Motorsport 5, you're probably very familiar with the game's awful microtransactions. If not, basically the game uses tokens you buy in-game that can be used to purchase cars if you don't have enou... more

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... more
LocoCycle is a pretty insane game. In some ways it's wrong, in others, it's oh so right. But one thing's for sure -- if you love cheesy action films and want something completely different in a videogame, Loco might be your huckleberry.
Here are some tips to facilitate said craziness. more

I was late to Criterion Games' Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit but ended up liking it a fair amount. Setting up traps and utterly decimating vehicles in the name of justice didn't grow old, although the times when you weren't pl... more
