See what all the Rocket League fuss is about for free this weekend

If you've spent any amount of time around these parts within the past year, you know that Rocket League is enormously successful. We love it; the general public loves it; everybody seems to love it. Still, there may be some curmud...

 
Review: Blaze Rush

Review: BlazeRush

Remember that classic racing game Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road? You know, the game where you race tiny trucks across dirt tracks while using turbo boosts to catch some sick air over bumps in the road.  Bl...   read

Forza 6 goes retro with free Fallout 4-inspired car

 Xbox One owners who own either Fallout 4 or Forza 6 are getting another free treat. Similar to the Vault-Tech themed 1956 Ford F100 released last November, racing fans and wasteland scavengers will be receiving the Chryslus Rocket '69...

Project Cars is even less forgiving with an Oculus Rift

Project CARS was a hit with a lot of folks when it arrived back in May of last year, and now, it has an added bonus of VR support on PC. I spent a few hours with it recently, and I have to say, it warrants the "intense" rating it boast...

80's Overdrive for 3DS looks promising

There are several Out Run homages that have been released in the past decade or so, but every time I see one, my eyes light up. Nostalgia is a powerful thing after all, though in the end, I do need solid gameplay to back it up. 80's Ov...

 
TrackMania Turbo
Like its predecessors, TrackMania Turbo is an arcade-stye racing game built around small victories. At first, it's just a relief to crawl past the finish line, no matter how embarrassingly long it takes. Then, after deve...   read

Sony shuts down Driveclub developer Evolution Studios

After all of the issues with Driveclub, a lot of folks were probably waiting to hear some bad news out of Evolution Studios, and today, it happened. Sony has announced that it's closing the developer, who also handled the MotorStorm series....

You can play Assassin's Creed, Dark Void, and GRID 2 on Xbox One

Hah, remember Dark Void? It was only six years ago! There was a point pre-release where the Airtight-developed, Capcom-published third-person shooter seemed like it might be cool (it had a jetpack!), but it ended up falling below expectatio...

 
Super Impossible Road
During every Awesome Games Done Quick event, I pay particular attention to the Mario Kart block. The reason is that I love watching the speedrunners hit every shortcut with surgical precision. It requires knowing the exa...   read

TrackMania Turbo is holding an open beta this weekend

Thinking of spending the weekend at Bernie's? Postpone those plans! There's some free TrackMania Turbo to be played. Nadeo is holding a last-minute open beta on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from Friday, March 18 at 6:00am Pacific until that s...

Leaked footage of Forza 6: Apex looks dull

Footage of the upcoming Windows 10-only, free-to-play Forza Motorsport 6: Apex has been leaked online by some naughty person and it doesn't seem up to par with the Xbox One version. It certainly doesn't look anywhere near as good as Micros...

Hoopin' is on the horizon for Rocket League

Rocket League did for soccer what few anticipated: it made controlling an individual player exciting. This past winter, it took the formula on ice with the hockey-themed Snow Day, and now it's going further in the genre of sports in which t...

Mario Kart TV closes online operations in April

Mario Kart 8 is still alive and well in some circles (it would probably be even more prevalent if it had a good battle mode!), but online support for the TV element is winding down. On April 5, Mario Kart TV will cease its online operations...

Wanna roleplay as a rich guy with mommy/daddy issues in Rocket League?

Hi, Batman defenders! Before you start your own Caped Crusade to tell me how wrong I am, know that I'm just teasing. Bats is a'ight. Darren recently reported that the Batmobile is coming to Rocket League while insinuating that Batman p...

We're getting a Forza announcement at E3

Despite the three months between now and E3, Microsoft wants to talk about E3. More specifically, it wants to tease E3. Via press release, Microsoft says that it will reveal a new Forza title at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Jun...

Forza's newest game is free-to-play, Windows 10 only

We knew something Forza was coming this way, but until now, we weren't 100% on what that was. But Microsoft is finally ready to let that cat out of the bag (sort of, the Seattle Times seemingly jumped the gun), and that thing is a new ...

Project Traffic Jam

That's, uh, that's some bad racing

My time spent with Project CARS was largely made up of staring at other cars' bumpers and rapidly-approaching barricades. This GIF has half of that in spades. Remember: Slow racing is safe racing. Oh shit... Rush Hour in Monte Carlo -...

Racing sim Assetto Corsa pushed to June for PS4, Xbox One

Are you in the mood for a racing game? Not, like, right now, but in general? I only ever seem to become heavily invested in one or two a year, if that, and then I want no business with the genre. Currently, I'm all Crew-ed out on virtual dr...

Need for Speed is coming to PC with manual transmission

When Need for Speed heads to PC on March 15, 2016, it'll support manual transmission, and the oft-requested feature will also show up in a future update for the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Electronic Arts announced this morning. A s...

TrackMania Turbo hits PC and consoles in March

At some point during the past several months, TrackMania Turbo slipped off my radar. Which is a shame, because it looks super good. You can air-drop from a helicopter into a race and drive upside down on magnetic rollercoaster tracks. Uh, y...

Dirt Rally dev targeting 1080p/60fps on consoles

Dirt Rally developer Codemasters is hoping to hit 1080p and 60fps when the racer releases on consoles later this year. “We’re very, very close [to 1080p/60fps] on PS4,” chief game designer Paul Coleman told Videogamer. &ld...

Need for Speed: Most Wanted is free on Origin

The latest game in Origin's On the House program is 2012's Need for Speed: Most Wanted. For a limited time, you can add it to your account for free and it'll stay there until the end of days, probably. I'm not particularly well-versed in th...

Driveclub's hardcore option looks intimidating

Evolution Studios is adding a Hardcore Handling option to Driveclub in February. With the feature enabled, you won't be able to rely on familiar assists like traction and stability control. Here's a short preview of it in action:

The Crew update

Oh cool, The Crew now has a photo mode

After getting The Crew and its Wild Run expansion on sale a few weeks back, the racing game has slowly become a night-devouring obsession. It has problems, definitely, but I'm loving it as something I can play while listening to podcasts or...

Mario Kart 64 dashing to Wii U in Europe this week

Almost as quick as a speedy Super Mushroom, Mario Kart 64 will be zooming to Wii U's Virtual Console this week. In just three days, the racer from 1996 will be available to play on Nintendo's newest console, nearly 20 years after the g...

Rocket League competitive season ending, ranked players will get crowns

Slipstream looks like it channels Out Run in all the best ways

I'm not one to generally cover Kickstarters (there are so many, and a lot of them have zero working game footage in tow), but occasionally select concepts catch my eye. Slipstream is one such project, as it looks like it would have be...
