Project Cars is even less forgiving with an Oculus Rift

Project CARS was a hit with a lot of folks when it arrived back in May of last year, and now, it has an added bonus of VR support on PC. I spent a few hours with it recently, and I have to say, it warrants the "intense" rating it boast...   read

80's Overdrive for 3DS looks promising

There are several Out Run homages that have been released in the past decade or so, but every time I see one, my eyes light up. Nostalgia is a powerful thing after all, though in the end, I do need solid gameplay to back it up. 80's Ov...   read

Review: TrackMania Turbo

Like its predecessors, TrackMania Turbo is an arcade-stye racing game built around small victories. At first, it's just a relief to crawl past the finish line, no matter how embarrassingly long it takes. Then, after developing a workin...   read

Sony shuts down Driveclub developer Evolution Studios

After all of the issues with Driveclub, a lot of folks were probably waiting to hear some bad news out of Evolution Studios, and today, it happened. Sony has announced that it's closing the developer, who also handled the MotorStorm series....   read

Hah, remember Dark Void? It was only six years ago! There was a point pre-release where the Airtight-developed, Capcom-published third-person shooter seemed like it might be cool (it had a jetpack!), but it ended up falling below expectatio...   read

Super Impossible Road is a racer that's all about falling off the track

During every Awesome Games Done Quick event, I pay particular attention to the Mario Kart block. The reason is that I love watching the speedrunners hit every shortcut with surgical precision. It requires knowing the exact angle and ti...   read

Leaked footage of Forza 6: Apex looks dull

Footage of the upcoming Windows 10-only, free-to-play Forza Motorsport 6: Apex has been leaked online by some naughty person and it doesn't seem up to par with the Xbox One version. It certainly doesn't look anywhere near as good as Micros...   read

Hoopin' is on the horizon for Rocket League

Rocket League did for soccer what few anticipated: it made controlling an individual player exciting. This past winter, it took the formula on ice with the hockey-themed Snow Day, and now it's going further in the genre of sports in which t...   read

We knew something Forza was coming this way, but until now, we weren't 100% on what that was. But Microsoft is finally ready to let that cat out of the bag (sort of, the Seattle Times seemingly jumped the gun), and that thing is a new ...   read

That's, uh, that's some bad racing

Racing sim Assetto Corsa pushed to June for PS4, Xbox One
