Nintendo says Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is fastest-selling Mario Kart ever

In racing, a strong start is a good thing but ultimately meaningless if you can't also finish strong. No one remembers the first off the starting line, they just remember who took the checkered flag. In games sales, a strong start is reason...   read

Forza Horizon goes more unrealistic than ever with upcoming Hot Wheels add-on

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...   read

Here's our first big look at the new Micro Machines

Size is relative. That's the concept at the core of the magic of Micro Machines. Try to stick with me: Cars are usually big, but this time they're very small and that's fun. It sounds condescending but it's honestly not meant to be. There'...   read

WipEout Omega Collection gets physical edition, releases this June
