After years of pleading from fans on both sides, Microsoft is finally crossing-over two of its most popular characters: Forza car and Halo Warthog.
The hardest part of open-world games, for me, is paying attention to the plot instead of getting distracted by all the places I can go. Recently I’ve spent about 30 hours in 2012’s Sleeping Dogs and have barely gotten out of the intro missions. I have, however, found the world’s longest escalator system. Sort of.
I’ve been working at Kotaku for five years. In those five years, I have posted hundreds of video game screenshots. I’ve taken hundreds more that never saw the light of day. UNTIL NOW.
Some of the multiplayer additions to Grand Theft Auto Online may not interest devotees of the single-player part of Rockstar’s ever-evolving rendition of California crime. The stunt races introduced to the game throughout the past month should.
A 19-year-old driver from Australia has crashed their car into a local school while trying to play Pokémon Go.
While some local government officials are trying to get Pokémon Go out of public spaces, the Mayor of Dusseldorf has taken the opposite approach, blocking off a bridge in the city so that players can catch pocket monsters in safety.
Since 2010's Hydro Thunder Hurricane, developer Vector Unit’s been finding new ways to do what they do best: high-speed water-based racing. With Riptide GP: Renegade they’re taking a stab at adding depth and character. It’s about damn time.
Don’t Pokémon Go and drive. You’ll do something stupid. Like crash into a police car.
In a year in which I reviewed demanding motorsports simulations like F1 2012, and NASCAR The Game: Inside Line, with Forza Horizon thrown in for good measure, I can guarantee the toughest racing game I'll play is Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed.
Forza Horizon, which released yesterday, introduces a "car club" concept to the game, and it isn't just a leaderboard of your friends. You may share your best rides with anyone else who joins up, and they may take those cars out on the open road of Forza Horizon's Colorado.
This past week, I haven't felt as helpless or as vexed behind the wheel since I was 15 years old and trying to divine the magical balance between clutch and gas pedal that actually sent my mother's BMW 325e forward along our farm's gravel road. Each time the vehicle shuddered and stalled out, I was left to contemplate…
The next Forza game is set in an open world. Wait, what? Yes, it's an open world modeled after Colorado. And smack in the middle of the game's setting is a racing festival that you will partake in when Forza Horizon releases October 23 for Xbox 360.
Early signs seem to indicate that the next Need for Speed game will essentially be a spiritual continuation of the Burnout franchise, especially since it's being made by the Criterion dev studio that created those games. The hard-driving action in this new trailer—featuring a Corvette ZR1, Koenigsegg Agera R and…
Criterion, makers of some amazing racing games, are officially making the next Need for Speed.
Collect your winnings, people, on one of the safest bets in video games. There will be a new Need for Speed this fall, a fact EA believes it already told us (they did?). They've got it listed in a new slide that shows all their "announced" games for the rest of their financial year (ending March 31, 2013!). No further…
Now, this is exergaming with a purpose. Modder Brent Smith of Canada rigged an old exercise bike with some sensors, switches, transistors, and the indispensable Arduino microcontroller, turning the whole thing into a Super Nintendo controller for use in Mario Kart.
