Be careful with this Gran Turismo 6 money exploit

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 ...

Review: Gran Turismo 6
by Dale North

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. 

Racing games are great for going fast, and you can certainly do that in a Gran Turismo game. But Gran Turismo 6 is also a driving game. Sometimes it's less about the race and more about the thrill of the automotive experience. Sometimes it's less about being first and more about being in the zone. 

If you're the type of person that enjoys driving around, you'll understand what I'm saying.

Gran Turismo 6 Lunar Exploration is weird and wonderful

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. ...

Our Gran Turismo 6 review will be late

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 ...

Play Sonic Racing Transformed for free this weekend photo
Play Sonic Racing Transformed for free this weekend
by Jordan Devore

One of the best kart racers in years can be played for free this weekend on Steam. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is yours for the trying now through Sunday at 1:00pm Pacific.

If you like what you see, the full game is currently on sale for $4.99 until Monday at 10:00am Pacific. This version has a number of exclusive characters, including the Spy, Pyro, and Heavy from Team Fortress 2. (There's no beating Joe Musashi, though.)

Steam has had its fair share of good games going free for the weekend, but Transformed is one I urge all Sega fans to check out. It single-handedly rekindled my love of kart racing.

Shuhei Yoshida addresses Gran Turismo 6 microtransactions

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...

Gran Turismo 6: Best racing game commercial ever

I'd like to be in a commercial like this. When I play a racing game I AM this guy.  Gran Turismo 6 is going to be so good.

This Forza 5 Wind Waker car is glorious

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...

Race the Sun is finally heading to Steam

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...

Turn 10 responds to Forza Motorsport 5 economy feedback photo
Turn 10 responds to Forza Motorsport 5 economy feedback
by Brett Zeidler

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 enough credits. The problem is it's severely broken and takes advantage of consumers, specifically with the value of said tokens being misleading.

Players are not happy, and Turn 10 responded to both their feedback and in-game data with programs to be implemented this week as a means of tiding players over for the supposed permanent changes to come to the Forza 5 economy.

Namco bringing Mario Kart Arcade GP DX to the West

Regrettably, I've not yet had the privilege of playing Namco Bandai's Mario Kart arcade games. This has been especially painful for Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, which looks so damned good. Unlike its predecessors, this machine wo...

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.

Very Quick Tips: LocoCycle photo
Very Quick Tips: LocoCycle
by Chris Carter

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.

Review: LocoCycle (Xbox One)
by Chris Carter

I've always had a soft spot for SpyHunter. Although Twisted Metal and other arena-based shooters are great in their own right, there's something special about an action racing game that lets you hit the open road.

LocoCyle is kind of like that. But add in a few sentient talking motorcycles, crazy biker gangs, a plot for world domination, and an innocent mechanic forced along for the ride. Yep, it's pretty hard to explain, but I'll try.

Review: Need for Speed: Rivals photo
Review: Need for Speed: Rivals
by Dale North

Like any good racer, the Need for Speed franchise never stops moving. They've come a long way since the early '90s, though the last few years' releases have been more about refinement of the formula than anything else, moving more towards an open world structure.

The latest in the franchise, Need for Speed: Rivals, takes a big step by going all-in on one mode that combines a single-player campaign with online multiplayer. The rest -- including the cops, the cars, and the crashing -- stay the same. In a sense, they've made it so players can jump in and go fast without having to worry about the details.

And it's all the better for it.
