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...

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...

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...

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...
