Yup, This Is Still The World's Most Attractive Racing Game

At this point, I'm convinced that Project CARS isn't actually a racing game. It's a playable art installation that lets you take pretty pictures of cars. And things other than cars. » 12/31/13 10:17am 12/31/13 10:17am

Need for Speed Rivals Looks Amazing Whether You Play It on PC or PS4

For one moment, the gap between playing a game on PC and on console seemed razor-thin. I played Need for Speed Rivals on both PC and PS4 and the two versions of EA’s upcoming racing game were virtually indistinguishable.

A Tribute To One Of The Greatest Cars Ever Made

The Ford GT40. So fast. So gorgeous. Even decades later, it still turns heads, and it still stops hearts. So if a guy who draws cars in video games for a living wants to pay tribute to a vehicle, there aren't many better options. » 7/23/13 4:45am 7/23/13 4:45am

The New Mad Max Game Will Be Vast, Violent and Not Sound Australian

I detected nary an Australian accent from the characters in the new Mad Max game that made its surprise debut at E3 earlier this week.

I Just Played Forza 5 For A Few Minutes And Now I'm Mildly Excited

I just got my hands on a real-live Xbox One and played a pre-release Forza 5 for several minutes. It sure looks impressive, with all the annoying details of real driving — glare, reflections, crap on your car — and there's a whole new physics engine and radically new approaches to AI. But it still felt like Forza. » 6/12/13 2:00pm 6/12/13 2:00pm
