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

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

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

Seems the "eggciting" Dizzy adventure promised yesterday isn't very eggciting at all, with Codemasters revealing that the egg's grand return will actually be a remake of Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk on iOS devices and Android. I am sure we...

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...
