The Wipeout Omega Collection launches on PlayStation 4 today, combining all the content from Wipeout HD, Wipeout HD Fury and Wipeout 2048 into one gorgeously remastered package. It’s a ridiculous amount of futuristic hover racing for $40. Let’s hit some walls at incredibly high speeds!
Watch this crazy video of a huge buck jumping over a flock of motorcyclists, throwing one of them off balance and into the street as the graceful creature soars into the great green void.
Pit crews often spray down sticky substances like coke (not pop or soda, you Philistines—coke) to increase traction during high-pressure pit stops, like this one during today’s NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup finale at Homestead-Miami. Maybe someone swapped the coke bottle for bacon grease?
An eight-car pileup late in the Sprint Cup Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 required a quick cleanup for the race to finish under green. One unlucky official picking up a piece of debris at Atlanta Motor Speedway today got caught tripping over his own feet on the live broadcast. Oops.
One German man badly wanted to play the canyon-carving racing game WipeOut in real life. So he reverse-engineered it with a gigantic, multi-level cardboard track he can race on with a video-equipped R/C car controlled by a real racing cabinet.
