If you haven't heard about Rocket League yet for the PlayStation 4, then let me sum it up for you in just three words: soccer with cars. The game is the sequel to the PlayStation 3's Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle... read

You'd think Driveclub would want to stay away from the word 'buggy'


It's more tolerable in this context, though
Apr 01
Driveclub will most likely be remembered for its promised, yet non-existent free PlayStation Plus version. The primary reason this never came to fruition is because Evolution Studios had to spend a significant amount of... read

Minnesota Timberwolves go old school with Rubio Kart 64


Nobody tell Nintendo
Mar 31
Since Nintendo loves content creators so much, let's keep this Mario Kart 64-inspired video by the Minnesota Timberwolves on the down low. Ricky Rubio must love it, though, because it's going to be the only chance he has to actually win something meaningful. [Via Facebook] read

Ubisoft brings Driver back as a speedboat racer


Mobile speedboat racing
Mar 20
  Ubisoft is bringing back the classic series Driver as a speedboat racing game for mobile devices in April. I'm not quite sure how the series developed from a game about a getaway driver to racing speedboats, but they can't just let an IP die a peaceful death -- it has to buried alive. read

Upcoming Driveclub car will peel your face off


Not quite ludicrous speed though
Feb 12
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.   read

Driveclub review photo
In the Club
Driveclub was supposed to be a launch day title for the PS4, but it was delayed for a while, pushing back until now. We got our hands on it at the E3 following the PS4 announcement last year and thought it needed more time in the oven, so a delay was actually welcome. But that was a long delay. So, how much of a difference has a year made?  read feature

Team-based racing sounds really appealing

The last racing game to really hook me was Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit thanks, in no small measure, to the Autolog. Racing against friends was compulsive and really fun, so if Driveclub can do the same but let me race with m... read
