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

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

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

TrackMania Turbo hits PC and consoles in March

At some point during the past several months, TrackMania Turbo slipped off my radar. Which is a shame, because it looks super good. You can air-drop from a helicopter into a race and drive upside down on magnetic rollercoaster tracks. Uh, y...   read
