A few weeks ago at EGX, I was able to check out Mantis Burn Racing from VooFoo Studios. A top-down arcade racer, it immediately caught my attention on my first day at the show and I’ve been throwing my tiny cars around on the PlayStation 4 since launch. This is my Verdict.
Have you picked up Project CARS this past week, looking forward to a racer which can challenge the hegemony of Gran Turismo and Forza? Have you started to play with a gamepad and found everything extremely frustrating to drive? Have no fear and don’t give up on it just yet. This is my tale.
A new trailer for The Crew was released this evening by Ubisoft showing off pretty much every feature you need to know about in the game. It is four minutes of hot racing action in this open world action driving game* with some narration to fill in the gaps between what the action and big words that pop up in the video try to tell you. In all honesty, this does look like a welcome addition to the racing game genre, there is the entire contiguous United States to explore. The country is split into five themed areas (west coast, mountains etc) and there are about a dozen large cities to drive through as well. Starting to sound like your cup of tea?
I dropped the name of Project CARS the other day when I was talking about the announcement of GRID Autosport and followed it up by having a quick blast with a BMW around Rouen-Les-Essarts where I promptly binned it in the barriers. Then, a few days later, Slightly Mad Studios released their first official trailer for the game which I have handily embedded after the break.
Slightly Mad Studios have added a new member tier to their World of Mass Development powered title Project CARS. The new tier is called Full Member and comes in between the Team Member and Senior. If you want to become a Full Member, it will set you back €45, but more importantly you will get a free boxed copy of the game if you join or upgrade to the new tier. The other lower positions aren’t being ignored, Juniors will…
As the resident motorsport aficionado it should come as no surprise that my interest has been piqued by the news that FIM Speedway Grand Prix 4 from Techland is getting a UK retail release on the 30th September via Excalibur Publishing, the company who have worked on the retail release of titles like UK Truck Simulator and the upcoming London Underground Simulator.
