GRID Autosport Review

Leave it to CodeMasters to come in and help subdue your crave for speed this summer, and speed is what you will get from GRID AutoSport! Now normally I would be just chilling back on my couch with my controller expecting to do some flashy Arcade-style racing like GRID 2 was pulling, well I assumed wrong....waaaay wrong! It seems CodeMasters got serious and took it back a notch away from all the mundane arcade racing and went full force technical simulation style. And when I mean technical, I'm talking about knowing your gear ratios, your suspensions, your braking, speed levels, your tires, and etc! You will be getting back learning to tune your car. And I like it, and it's about damn time! It's been a long time since I had to be very serious...

Preview Update: The Crew Never Drive Alone

Oh it has been so long since the last time I previewed the crew which is what is now called a Massive Multi-player Car.P.G where you can drive anywhere in the United states making your own Cannibal Run if you wish. This is going to be the racing game and the first coming from Ubisoft with full customization making any car adaptable to each terrain. I am speechless when I saw the 17 minute gameplay and explanation of how the world is going to work as a whole teaming up with your friends, but check out the latest trailer below as well as the additional information on pre-ordering.

NFS Underground 3…Rumors? Who Cares, Just Give Us The Game!

Happy Monday racing fans and gamers of the world to this post on the supposed Need For Speed Undergound 3. Last week the internet blew up with a fan deviantart post of a NFS Undergound 3 poster, but it was just a fan who really wishes this genre would make a return. In all honesty, you damn right it should make a return, but no hate towards the NFS team because I hit them up through twitter on @Needforspeed. The first time I got a chance to meet the crew was when Shift was released and of course my initial question was, will Underground or Most Wanted make a return. Now they were reluctant to answer on that, but I understood why. However, we did get a new Most Wanted/BurnOut Paradise 2 style...

Grid 2 Initial D Parody Video.

All right racing fans, this week we received on PlayStation Plus Grid 2 for free. I was floored and loved this game so much that I did a shout out to my friends to acquire this amazing simulator racing game. Now for some that didn't know I did a parody video for another racing game and my good buddy Seph Dean decided to work on his own Parody using Grid 2, but inspired by the amazing racing anime Initial D. He did such an incredible job, I just had to make one as well to co-exist in the same universe as him. Check it out. (more…)...

Welcome motocross fans to this preview of MXGP The Official Motocross Videogame coming to PC, Ps3, Ps4, PS Vita and Xbox 360 Spring of next year. I don't know about you, but motocross is a tough sport and so far the fan base has been huge for a long time, but so far not many games have done the genre justice. I am hoping that with MXGP, it will take us to a whole new level of motocross racing and of course stunts. Lets check out this new physics video. (more…)...

Top Ten Tuesday: Racing Games That Should Be Movies and Vice Versa

Good Morning and happy Top Ten Tuesday. There are two different genres that are flipping platforms for fans coming out soon. The first announced was the Need For Speed movie starring Breaking Bads Aaron Paul and the 80's Mel Gibson post apocalyptic film Mad Max coming to consoles. In that this dawned to me as I am surfing the web thinking about other titles that would make great movies and or video games. I sat down and picked my favorites for this great list, but be aware that I am going to name one that has made it to video games, however they never brought it over seas. (more…)...

Preview Play-through of Ridge Racer Driftopia

What is going on gamers? Happy Friday to you all and welcome to kuma's preview play-through of Ridge Racer Driftopia, which is a beta going on right now on Steam. I hardly believe in any racing game that should be played on a keyboard, either you use a racing wheel or a controller, but thankfully I configured my controller to do just that. I have stated before that I have been a ridge racer fan since the old Psone days, but now they are coming out with a Free-to-play style title, makes me raise an eyebrow. I finally get into the beta and I have to say this title will eat up your funds, but before I get into that, a demonstration of what the game will look like. (more…)...
