Grab your hat: NASCAR DLC rumored for Forza 6

[Update: As of this morning Microsoft has acknowledged the leak to Destructoid, asking fans to "stay tuned" for more news.] I love these retailer pre-order card leaks. Do publishers just send these out early and all hope that their marketin...   read

Review: Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback Wheel

As a gamer with limited experience playing driving sims, I have often underestimated the effect that a nice racing wheel can have on player experience. I'll often enjoy playing Euro Truck Simulator or Forza Horizon casually, but I'm aware I...   read

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex opens its beta next week

Turn 10 is bringing Forza over to PC soon, but if you missed the initial announcement, well, this isn't exactly a dream scenario we're talking about here. Importantly, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is a free-to-play title, one with a "curated si...   read

Your opinions on racing games are stupid

[Scrustle has some prime words to share about the surprisingly diverse racing genre. Sims, arcade racers, and everything in between, it seems like there is a lot of contention in rating racing games when they're not just racing games but re...   read

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...   read

See what all the Rocket League fuss is about for free this weekend

If you've spent any amount of time around these parts within the past year, you know that Rocket League is enormously successful. We love it; the general public loves it; everybody seems to love it. Still, there may be some curmud...   read

Review: BlazeRush

Remember that classic racing game Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road? You know, the game where you race tiny trucks across dirt tracks while using turbo boosts to catch some sick air over bumps in the road.  BlazeRush is...   read

Forza 6 goes retro with free Fallout 4-inspired car

 Xbox One owners who own either Fallout 4 or Forza 6 are getting another free treat. Similar to the Vault-Tech themed 1956 Ford F100 released last November, racing fans and wasteland scavengers will be receiving the Chryslus Rocket '69...   read

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

You can play Assassin's Creed, Dark Void, and GRID 2 on Xbox One

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

Mario Kart TV closes online operations in April

Mario Kart 8 is still alive and well in some circles (it would probably be even more prevalent if it had a good battle mode!), but online support for the TV element is winding down. On April 5, Mario Kart TV will cease its online operations...   read

We're getting a Forza announcement at E3

Despite the three months between now and E3, Microsoft wants to talk about E3. More specifically, it wants to tease E3. Via press release, Microsoft says that it will reveal a new Forza title at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Jun...   read

Forza's newest game is free-to-play, Windows 10 only

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

My time spent with Project CARS was largely made up of staring at other cars' bumpers and rapidly-approaching barricades. This GIF has half of that in spades. Remember: Slow racing is safe racing. Oh shit... Rush Hour in Monte Carlo -...   read

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

Are you in the mood for a racing game? Not, like, right now, but in general? I only ever seem to become heavily invested in one or two a year, if that, and then I want no business with the genre. Currently, I'm all Crew-ed out on virtual dr...   read
