We'll get our first look at the new Need for Speed tomorrow

About the only thing we've known of the new Need for Speed game for 2017 was that it was in development. There was no name, no car list, no platforms; just a bunch of speculation. Well, mostly speculation, since EA had to clarify that the g...

PS Plus June's game selection is strange

It looks like the leak from last week was correct; June's PS Plus free games will include Life is Strange and Killing Floor 2 on PS4. Finally, a good month for titles, even if I wasn't too keen on how Life is Strange ended. That final chapt...

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe gets a semi-substantial patch

Typically when Nintendo patches something, they're trying to eliminate vulnerabilities or add that sweet sweet "stability" into the mix (which is usually code for "we got rid of more vulnerabilities"). Today with update 1.1 for Mario Kart 8...

Review: Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels

On paper, Hot Wheels is a dream mashup for Forza Horizon. This is a series that has always reveled in the ridiculous, putting as much emphasis on stuff like stunt jumps as it does on technical racing. A Hot Wheels partnership seems like an ...

Danger Zone looks like a nice fix for the lack of Burnout

It’s been a long time since a Burnout game last released. While Burnout Crash was technically the swan song for the series, most fans consider Paradise to be the final “true” entry from developer Criterion Games (or, if yo...

Newest DiRT 4 trailer takes a look at real drivers

A lot of people don't realize that the DiRT series is based on a real sport. Rally driving is pretty damn dangerous and many a driver stare death in the face on a regular basis. You have to be crazy to get behind the wheel on a slim mountai...

Grand Theft Auto online is getting a top down racing mode

The original Grand Theft Auto and its first sequel employed a different viewpoint to the games we have today. Instead of being third-person, they went for a top down view due to hardware limitations of the time. PC's and consoles weren't ab...

Review: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Despite the minor issues I had with Mario Kart 8 (RIP Wii U), they were nothing compared to the lack of a real battle mode -- it was kind of annoying that they even slotted in a fake stand-in for it, if we're being real. But now with&n...
