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.
If you are like me and commit to the annual ritual of playing Codemasters’ yearly F1 games, then last year you were more than likely disappointed. After the amazing 2012 and 2013 entries, F1 2014 felt like a skin on an aging engine with dumb AI, ugly visuals, and no model for how the new V6 turbo hybrid cars worked.
I've been burned by racing video games before. They look so beautiful in their trailers, but then fail to deliver on their promises. Like the PS4's Driveclub, which I liked initially and then completely lost interest in after I turned in my review. Maybe The Crew will be different.
I spent a week playing a pre-release copy of the PlayStation 4 racing game Driveclub, and in that time I found it to offer striking visuals and a unique online multiplayer social experience. Then it launched. And everything went to hell.

If you grew up in the 80s or 90s and loved cars, you're probably familiar with Sega's OutRun, one of the best arcade driving games ever made. But getting it from the arcade to your home was no easy task. Oppo's Gabor Vajda talks to the developer of the Commodore 64 version about how that happened. Make sure you turn…
Great news today for fans of the iRacing simulator game who own Macs and don't want to have to screw with Boot Camp or some other Windows utility: an OS X version of iRacing is now available.
Look, it's even more gameplay footage from Gran Turismo 6! And there's even sound this time, unlike yesterday. Sound is always nice.
Racing gamers seem to be pretty jazzed about Driveclub on the forthcoming PlayStation 4, but it sounds like the PS3 may have one last great racing hurrah before it retires that we could get this year. And it's a big one: Gran Turismo 6.
