It looks like Iíll be playing Driveclub this fall photo
It looks like Iíll be playing Driveclub this fall
by Dale North

It’s been about a year since I’ve played upcoming PS4 racer Driveclub. It debuted at E3 last year; I found myself rushing to my PlayStation appointment to get my hands on it. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was with my first experience. It wasn’t at all like the big, shiny, socially connected next-gen racer I expected from the pros at Evolution Studios. I chalked the rough experience up to being early in the development process, but the reality was that it wasn’t that early — the title was expected at launch. 

Since then, the title missed launch, was delayed, and is now slated for an October 7 release. It sounds like they’ve done a lot to Driveclub since that first showing. And I guess that work payed off. After my first hands-on I’m pretty sure I’ll be playing it regularly later this year.

Which Mario Kart was your favorite?  photo
Which Mario Kart was your favorite?
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Nintendo UK released this history of Mario Kart video, detailing the history of the beloved racing franchise. It's a short little look at the Mario Kart games, and really a giant ad for Mario Kart 8, but it's enough to get my nostalgia boner flowing with wonderful memories.

I seriously got goosebumps when I heard the Mario Kart 64 theme. Wasn't expecting it at all, but it made me yearn for my youth. For me it was my favorite entry in the series. What about you? And hey, let's share our least liked Mario Kart too. For me it's between Double Dash and Mario Kart Wii.

Video of all 30 characters and 32 courses in Mario Kart 8
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Nintendo has released all the cup and track names for Mario Kart 8, along with little video snippets of each track. Or you can watch this video by YouTuber Nintendomination that takes all the video previews and makes on giant 34-minute long video to save you the hassle.

Plus there's a video preview of all the playable characters too, along with a look at how, uh, lame the battle mode is now. Battle mode looks to take place on courses, which seems like it'll make the versus stuff more tedious than fun.
