This fan-made video has me pining for a real Mario Kart 8 battle mode

After following up 7, Mario Kart 8 was a breath of fresh air. I loved playing it for months on end, there was just one major problem -- the "battle mode" sucked. I called Nintendo "out of their mind" back in 2014, and I stand by that s...   read

We'll see more of Gran Turismo Sport before E3

Rumor: 90s Arcade Racer might be the latest indie to drop the Wii U

Your opinions on racing games are stupid

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold
