Slow and steady wins the race
Need for Speed's PC launch has been delayed until next spring, Ghost Games announced today, saying PC gamers' desire for an unlocked frame rate was the driving force behind the move.
"This decision on PC gives us the necessar...
The new Need for Speed reboot is one of those always-online abominations, so you can bet your sweet ass there is going to be a beta. Gotta stress test those severs/promote that product.
If you'd like to take th...
On your marks, get set, go, go, go!
Game designers rarely go off-road when creating racing games and eschew lesser-traveled paths in favor of more established, familiar routes. Not Gordon Midwood, though; the one lone developer at indie studio Different Cloth i...
Five days early if you bought Ultimate

I only ever use Grunt Birthday Party
Forza 6 will feature a range of new mods, based loosely upon the Skulls feature from the Halo games, and some will be rarer than others.
"Mods are game modifiers, similar to perks in Forza Horizon 2 or Skulls in Halo 4,...
'Shifting its development force'
If you're in the small subset of people who: 1) enjoy Ubisoft's weird ass open world racing game The Crew, 2) play it only on the Xbox 360, and 3) are excited for the upcoming Wild Run expansion (November 17) , then I have ba...
No, that doesn't include PS+ copies
We've bought over 2 million copies of Driveclub.
Game director Paul Rustchynsky tweeted about the milestone on Twitter and shared an image of a snazzy award thing.
It's thought the game reached the milestone ...
There's new DLC packs, too
Two further DLC packs are headed to DriveClub next week.
The first pack - The Horsepower Expansion Pack - will drop on Tuesday, July 28 and includes 11 new events, five new cars and five new trophies. It includes the Fer...
Definitive version of NFS
The upcoming Need for Speed doesn't have a subtitle because it wants to be the definitive game in the series, according to Craig Sullivan of Ghost Games. The developers have cherry picked the best parts of the previous subtit...
Start your engines

Jay Leno says hi
The upcoming racing sim Project CARS has been on the radar for many of those who live and breathe the genre. Slated for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 8, here is the full car list that we know about so far (65 of which will come with the standard edition).
Closed beta extended through weekend, ends May 3
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...
It's more tolerable in this context, though
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...
Nobody tell Nintendo
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.
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...
Driver Speedboat Paradise
Mobile speedboat racing
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.
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?
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.
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...
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 ...
Bandai Namco sends word that Slightly Mad Studios' upcoming racer, Project Cars, has been pushed back to March 20, 2015. This goes for all versions: PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
They say the move helps them break away from th...
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?
Like that would ever happen
With both Driveclub and Forza Horizon 2 hitting the streets this month my mind is fully in racing game mode. We racing fans are spoiled this month with two very nice titles, and I'm racing my days away in them. As of late I a...
For $4.99 or part of the Season Pass

They had me at self-regenerating, bifurcated cars
