When I first played Codemaster’s newly rebooted GRID I had just come back from a weekend at the Wales Rally GB. A weekend of serious motorsport, off-road motorsport at that put me in the wrong mindset to play GRID for the first time. This isn’t a sim like Codies recent DiRT Rally 2.0 or their F1 series of racers. Nay, GRID is an arcade racer, and one with plenty of depth. In my first few races in the Touring car…
There are many exciting racers in varying stages of development at the moment, be they Project CARS or Assetto Corsa. These crowd-funded racers that are still being developed are going to face some serious competition soon when Codemasters throw their hat in the ring once again as GRID is set to return this June.
With all this news of next-generation consoles, features they will include and exclusive games it seems I’m still living in the past however. By far the most exciting piece of news for me this week was that Age of Empires II will be receiving an HD update exclusively for Steam. While the graphical update is minimal and not really all that it important, it will be featuring mod support and easy access to multiplayer gaming which is a big improvement. I could easily see this becoming my most played game of the year. Move over League of Legends, you’re not laughing any more.
Oh my! That is a teaser trailer for Grid 2 from Codemasters and that has really caught my attention. The original was an awesome reboot of the TOCA series and few titles since have quite managed to match it. The teaser promised something else to come, probably the full reveal, next week on the 8th of August. Hell. Yes.
