You got what it takes to hit that kind of speed and not end up a stain on the road? We'll have to see in the coming weeks.
Ubisoft's open world racer The Crew launched in December with a bug that the team couldn't fix over the holidays or also the month of January. It was a big bug, too, what with it randomly erasing players' stats.
With a few days left on the Kickstarter for Drift Stage, developer Super Systems Softworks has confirmed that PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita ports will eventually happen for its arcade racer. Expect those to land sometime... read
Derrick the Deathfin and lilt line developer Different Cloth has announced a new project.
It's called Drive!Drive!Drive!, like the Ryan Gosling film if you shouted into an echo chamber. It's a driving game where you race multiple tracks simultaneously. I'm loving that music and violet hue.
Expect it to end up on "some platforms at some point in the future." read

Me and my crew, we swaggin' in the room A great racer to me doesn’t focus on an abundance of customization options or entire garages of cars. It doesn’t even serve up solid multiplayer modes or an interesting soundtrack. It keeps me playing.

Shovel Knight's surprise appearance in Road Rash spiritual successor Road Redemption seems like the result of the developers meeting over drinks, someone throwing out a wild idea, and no one being sober enough to interject. Then again, this is the studio responsible for butt mode.

Nintendo doesn't seem all that interested in making a new F-Zero, but at least we have dedicated fans out there keeping the series alive. Take th... read
Zelda x Mario Kart Mario Kart 8's first DLC pack has Link riding a horse-shaped bike called the Master Cycle. And, good lord, Mute City from the beloved but still dormant F-Zero series. Also, a track based on Excitebike with a killer remix. Are you even going to read this review?
Don't answer that. Let me have this moment. read feature
