You don't need the base game to play
More free stuff to download on Xbox One and Xbox 360 assuming you get around to nabbing Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious before April 10, at which point the standalone expansion becomes $10. As we said previously,...
Yes, this is a good thing
Fans of F1 and actual racing can breathe a sigh of relief regarding two facts about the upcoming F1 2015. One, it will be out this June. And two, it's only going to be on current gen consoles and PC -- that's right, no dumbin...
Go hit the hoad
Starting this week, both PS4 and Xbox One owners can go grab a free version of Ubisoft's new open-world racer, The Crew. It's a two-hour trial of sorts, and if you want to buy the full game you can continue your progress.
So no more MotorStorm then?
The life of Driveclub has not been easy. From delays to broken promises, what was to be a flagship title for the PlayStation 4 has become somewhat of a joke -- whether actually deserved or not.
And even though we can debate i...
New cars and tour coming this month
Later this month Driveclub is going to be getting some new Lamborghini-themed DLC. The Lamborghini DLC pack, which comes with four new cars and a dedicated tour, is due out at some unspecified time later this month alongside...
Free for the first two weeks
Get ready to live your life a quarter mile at a time. An Xbox and Universal partnership has borne Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, a standalone expansion.
Not only do you not need to own the base game to pl...
Moon Spider Studio has released its debut title, Harold, an endearing and challenging race game about the most incompetent runner ever to need protection from a guardian angel. With some quick thinking, quicker thumbs, and an opportunistic eye, players guide the titular Harold to victory against all odds.
Who doesn't love an underdog?
Nominated for Excellence in Audio at the Independent Games Festival
While watching this trailer for THUMPER, a self-described rhythm violence game from current Harmonix artist Brian Gibson and former lead programmer Marc Flury, I didn't want to blink. I also let out a confused "what?" follow...
Billed as 'F-Zero meets Audiosurf'
"F-Zero meets Audiosurf" brings some vivid imagery to mind, but after watching the above trailer, I'm not sure I agree with that tagline for the indie racer Spectra. Sure, it's set to some bumpin' Chipzel tracks, but it look...
Not quite ludicrous speed though
To tease one of the upcoming cars arriving for Driveclub this month, the developers decided to give us a sneak peak via a video showing off the terrifying speed the unnamed four-wheeled machine can do -- at least 242 mph.
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.
It's not too late to get in on the Kickstarter
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...
Different Cloth announces new multi-track racer
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."
Forza gets Top Gear love
If you're a car junkie, then you should be very familiar with Top Gear. Microsoft is hoping that familiarity will lead to DLC sales as the Forza Horizon 2 Top Gear Car Pack has just been made available to Xbox One racers for $5.
Have a look at the list of cars available (including a freebie):
Or just ride it out
As a daily rider, when I first heard a game like RIDE was announced, I got a little excited. Not too excited, but just a little. Sometimes I need a virtual motorcycle fix and that's just not easy to get in a car-dominated ra...
Forza Motorsport 6
Forget the Euro-dynamism and great soundtrack of Forza Horizon. Microsoft and Turn 10 have announced Forza Motorsport 6, baby!
Look at that well-modeled Ford GT, Forza 6's "cover car." Look at it. Look at it again. Exc...
You sly dog
Composer Kazumi Totaka has been hiding this tune in Nintendo games for over two decades now. While some of us will best recognize "Totaka's Song" from Mario Paint, it has turned up in titles like Link's Awakening, Luigi's Ma...
I haven't felt this compelled to share a Kickstarter in quite a while
One look at Drift Stage in motion -- a few quick seconds into its main theme song -- and it's love.
This is a racing game for PC/Mac with one hell of an art direction currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The pitch isn't...
Forget Steve from Minecraft, play as Atoi or Iota instead
Before No Man's Sky, there was Joe Danger 2, a lovable side-scrolling racing/platform game about a motorbike-riding daredevil. After appearing on Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3, the game is now primed for its PS Vita debut, ...
We'd be fine without it, all the same
In a recent appearance on Smosh Games (interview starts at 4:35), Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto touched on a range of topics, including the future of F-Zero and Pikmin.
The famed designer gave a concise update on the latter se...
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.
And let me ...
He's coming to the Steam Early Access game today
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.
Gee, I wonder what happens there
Forza Horizon 2 shipped this fall with plenty of inclement weather, unlike some other game. Nevertheless, its first add-on centers around even more torrential downpours on the paradisiacal sounding Storm Island.
Too many chili dogs
If there's a level editor, World 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. will find a way.
But before I get to that, there's a more pressing matter: fat action figures dressed up like Sonic the Hedgehog. Yes, we could use more of those in ...
Refract's take on the racing genre has left me impressed
Distance, the neon-soaked spiritual successor to the popular freeware racing title Nitronic Rush is now available to test drive on Steam Early Access. For those interested, you can pick it up for a l...
Wii U System Update 5.3.1
Mario Kart 8 has definitely passed the honeymoon test. It's still a staple with my group of friends, and the sheer number of tracks will likely ensure that over time, it will be my most played Mario Kart ever -- tha...
Just be patient
Only a few weeks removed from the kerfuffle surrounding both the Assassin's Creed Unity and Assassin's Creed Rogue reviews and embargoes, Ubisoft is opening up about exactly how The Crew's review process will go. Th...
We're rapidly approaching the two-month anniversary of Evolution Studios' Driveclub's release. What makes this significant is that the multiplayer component of the game doesn't consistently work. Two. Months. Later. We won't ...
But can we go deeper?
Mute City is my favorite DLC track in Mario Kart 8. Like, it's not even close.
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...
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.
