The Crew 2 looks like everything it needed to be

Among my game-playing friends, I feel like the only one who stuck with The Crew long enough to fall in love with it. The story was slow-going and the cars didn't handle quite right until you grinded up your stats, but the potential was ther...

Review: DiRT 4

DiRT 4’s tagline is "Be Fearless" and it definitely makes sense. This is a game more concerned about accurately recreating the sensation of Rally Sport than it is about accommodating lesser-skilled players. You need to be willing to t...

Review: WipEout Omega Collection

Omega Collection is going to catch some people by surprise. For dedicated WipEout avoiders, this bundling of WipEout HD, Fury, and 2048 is a chance to see what the fuss is about on modern hardware and an opportunity to realize first-hand wh...

Review in Progress: DiRT 4

I was a bit of a strange teenager. While most of my peers were busy playing the latest in flashy games, I tended to look for obscure titles and different genres. I remember having a grand old time on the original Xbox playing things like Gu...

Review in Progress: WipEout Omega Collection

With the Omega Collection, Sony has assembled WipEout HD (PS3), WipEout Fury (the expansion to HD), and WipEout 2048 (PS Vita), touching them up to feel more at home on PlayStation 4. You probably don't need me to tell you that it's a must-...

EA's Need for Speed Payback racing toward November release

The next in Electronic Arts' long-running Need for Speed series is an "action driving fantasy" no doubt drawing comparisons to the huge Fast and Furious franchise. Need for Speed Payback, developed by Ghost Games, will follow three di...

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...

Review: Danger Zone

Before computer technology advanced to the point that we could realistically render automobiles, racing games took on a much more simple approach to driving. You didn’t have to worry about clutching or shifting and most of the action ...

Come hear the WipEout Omega Collection soundtrack

Seeing the WipEout name pop up again is bittersweet, but some WipEout is better than no WipEout. The remastered-for-PS4 Omega Collection is coming soon, containing WipEout HD, HD Fury, and 2048 with enhanced visuals. Prior to the June 6 lau...

Thumper on Switch wore me out

[Header Screenshot via Chillybilly's Twitter] When Rez first came out in 2002, I learned a new word from its marketing campaign: Synesthesia. Basically, it means that one of your senses is being triggered by something it normally wouldn't, ...

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...

Ubisoft announces Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2

It looks like today is poised to be a day with short announcements of games and nothing else. Right after Natsume came out with barely any information on the new Harvest Moon, Ubisoft has taken to their forums to present logos for Far Cry 5...

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...
