The Nintendo 64, the gaming system that blew the doors open to bring 3D graphics to the masses, is 20 years old today. Can you believe it? There were countless great games for the N64, many of them driving games—including all-time best iteration of a game about cartoon characters lobbing turtle shells at each other…
A total of 140 drivable cars from real life and fantasy. Miles of paved and dirt track. Incredible physical realism and a dazzling sensation of speed. Is there any way that the best part of Gran Turismo Sport could be the freaking photography simulator sub-game? Yes.
Gran Turismo Sport is the latest game in the epic PlayStation driving sim franchise. It’s coming out on November 15, 2016, but you can get your first taste of what just might be the most realistic driving experience you can have on your TV right here.
I’m on record as a big fan of those on-court and on-ice projection systems proliferating throughout our nation’s arenas, but Tampa might have achieved apotheosis.
Driving a beat-up old Trabant across Eastern Europe isn’t an easy thing to do. Luckily, there’s a new Steam game called—brilliantly, I might add—Jalopy, where you get to pretend to do exactly that.
People leave memories in the most unexpected ways and when you run into them, you want to hold onto it forever because you don’t know when you’ll ever get it back. Here’s a sad but touching short film about a son re-discovering the Xbox he shared with his late father and the racing game that still holds his father’s…
Inventors have been trying to create awesome virtual reality video games for years. But now that you can create a decently immersive virtual experience with your phone and a piece of cardboard, an off-the-deep-end racing sim that fits on your shelf feels almost within reach.
It’s not exactly the best Monday morning pick-me-up, but if you were ever curious at just how inaccurate movies about the Titanic are, watch this animated simulation showing the infamous ocean liner sinking in real-time. You’ll just need to find a way to dodge work for two hours and forty minutes.
This clip “Secret Service Agents Train For Advance Reverse Escapes” shows President Obama’s limousine running hard around the Lime Rock race track, in reverse. It’s neat, but it’s definitely animated. A lot of people posting it to their Facebook wall don’t seem to recognize that.
You’ll never convince us there’s a better racing game out there than Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo. Hours and hours of our childhoods were spent racing those pixelated courses in our parents’ basements, but with the SNES only supporting four players, our races were never as intense as this epic 101-player…
It looks like Mattel has decided to test the dedication of die-hard Hot Wheels collectors and completionists. The line’s first Minecraft-themed vehicle, the Minecart, is a perfect recreation of the one appearing in the game. So in other words, it’s nothing more than a box on wheels.
A crew of miscreants dressed up as Mario Kart characters hopped on a fleet of tiny little go-carts and tore through London’s Westfield Shopping Center mall, apparently uninvited. Hilarity and banana-peel throwing ensued.
While it’s true that I’m not much of a video gamer, I have clearly found the classic Super Famicom (Super NES) game for me: Kat’s Run Zen-Nippon K Car Senshuken. Not only is it named after me, and involves kei cars I want and/or have owned, but it even has a joke from my favorite anime in the opening segment!
If you couldn’t stand the fast and repetitive pseudo-synth of 1990s video games I’d advise you not to read further. But you’re missing out; I can’t wait to peg this playlist next time I’m eating asphalt in a sports car.
Working out can be a drag, especially if your only means of entertainment is an awful juicer informercial on five of the 10 gym TVs. But thanks to virtual reality, you can soon exercise your way through a video game—and starting today, you can preorder a VR-ready bike that lets you do exactly that.
Quick cutscenes, dramatic music, shooting a helicopter from an upside-down flying tank? Somebody’s taking GTAV hellraising to a whole new level. I don’t even like watching people play video games and I’ve laughed through this twice.
Tearing through your town in a full-size replica of the tank-like Batmobile that Batman drives in the Arkham Knight game is sure to get you pulled over in no time. But a smaller go-kart version of that same Batmobile? Your local police might just ask to take it for a spin.
The Need For Speed video game franchise has a “completely rebooted” installment dropping November 3rd, and they’ve announced all 51 cars coming available upon release.
