Need for Speed Payback's story is about what you'd expect

We've seen the sprawling open world of Need for Speed Payback. Now it's time to get a feel for its story, which sees a crew of racers -- each with their own specialty -- taking on The House, a major player in Fortune Valley's criminal under...

Look out for the limited-time Gran Turismo Sport demo

I hope you aren't burned out on racing games for the year. Following a delay, Gran Turismo Sport is pushing toward an October 17 launch, but before then, you'll be able to go hands-on with a demo. There are some less-than-ideal restrictions...

Review in Progress: Forza Motorsport 7

The Forza Motorsport series has somehow become Microsoft’s flagship franchise for the Xbox brand. Regardless of how Halo launched the console into prominence in 2001 or how Gears of War blazed a whole new trail of third-person, cover-...

Need for Speed Payback has the series' biggest open world yet

The last time I touched on Need for Speed Payback, I said I wasn't sure what to make of the game. It hasn't left a strong impression -- for better or worse. And while we do have more to go on with this overview trailer highlighting the sett...

Review: Lightfield

Racing games are a hard genre to innovate. While a developer could add interesting ideas, they still have to layer them on top of an already cemented foundation. Races have to work a certain way, laps have to be counted, and there has to be...

Riptide GP: Renegade could scratch a Waverace itch on Switch

Riptide GP: Renegade was released last year on PC, and gained a surprising amount of traction. Folks are hungry for arcade racing it seems after many storied franchises like Rush and Cruis'n are now closed for business, and you'll be able t...

The Crew 2 is shaping up to be my open-world racer of choice

Ubisoft's latest showing for The Crew 2 was a lot like its last, but I'm not complaining. This weekend, I got another crack at the racer's open-world antics. Morphing between a car, plane, and boat in real time without losing momentum conti...

The Crew 2 touches down in March 2018

By the time The Crew 2 releases on March 16, 2018, I'll be ready to dig into another open-world racer. I spent a stupid amount of time screwing around the scaled-down USA and grinding up my stats in The Crew, and even though the sequel w...

Your PC got enough horsepower to run Forza Motorsport 7?

Forza Motorsport 7 is the first Forza Motorsport in history to launch simultaneously on Xbox and PC. Actually, FM6 Apex was the first in the series to come to PC and that was months after the original's release and free-to-pl...

Burnout-inspired Danger Zone headed to Xbox One

Three Fields Entertainment followed up its destructive golf game Dangerous Golf with a destruction-centric driving game, Danger Zone. What'll they have us wreck next? I'm curious to find out. In the mean time, the studio is working on porti...

Rockstar might be working on another Midnight Club

Midnight Club is a series that has been left in the dust. It's adored by a specific subset of racing fans, but developer Rockstar hasn't shown much interest in giving it any attention over the last near-decade. The most recent Midnight Club...

Gran Turismo Sport finally has a release date

I could never get into Forza. No particular reason, just didn't click with me (though I still want to give Horizon a go). For realistic driving games, I played the poop out of Gran Turismo 4 after my friend got me hooked on it. N...

Project CARS 2 certainly has a bunch of cars

I can't say I'm much of a car guy, but I always find it fascinating to read through the car lists for racing games. Its cool trying to spot the models I actually might know about and then balking at omissions from the roster. Looking over t...

Review: Micro Machines World Series

Micro Machines World Series wants to be Overwatch. It's an odd fit for a top-down racer to draw inspiration from a hero shooter, but that's what World Series does. The influence is immediately apparent -- from the different classe...

Is Old Yharnam a mandatory area? Im going through it, and while the generic enemies feel in line, the elite enemies have not felt like it (kited them over an edge), and Blood-Starved Beast feels like too big of a spike to be
