Gran Turismo has always skewed more towards the realistic simulation end of the spectrum in order to provide an accurate experience for virtual racers. This year’s version adds another layer to that, in the form of a certification and enforcement of proper “sportsmanship.”
GTA Online’s latest update adds “Transform Races” where players compete on tracks with checkpoints that instantly transform vehicles into something new. For example: one moment you’re racing around on a motorcycle, only to hit a checkpoint where you will soar away in a fighter jet. The mode incorporates everything…
This is a Suzuki Twin with a deeply disturbing “smile bumper” (スマイルバンバー or sumairu banpaa) that probably should not exist. But yet, it does.
Cars in GTA Online can cost over a million dollars, but surprisingly, the most expensive vehicles are not the fastest. With over 400+ vehicles to choose from, each with its own stats and special abilities, GTA Online players are inundated by choice. The game is updated often, so that number keeps going up. Fans…
GTA Online’s newest update, Smuggler’s Run, is all about planes and over-the-top action. After months and months of car updates, Smuggler’s Run makes GTA feel fresh again. Even so, the price tags on some additions are making people wince—but fortunately, you can still have fun with this content without having to be a…
Modarri toy cars are bright and colorful, and with “real” suspension and steering they’re a blast to play with. But the coolest thing about Modarri cars is the ability to strip them down to parts and rebuild them in countless combinations.
Shuffleboard and curling are way more exciting when you throw cars and ramps into the mix. GTA Online’s new mode, Overtime Rumble, does exactly that—and the community loves it.
Cars 2 was not a classic film. It was unfocused and a bit too dependent on plot rather than characters. But it was a solid film. It had great action set pieces and ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ humor. And it doesn’t deserve the death by omission it is currently enduring.
It’s hot in Japan. Hot enough to melt a dashboard rubber duck into a forlorn pool of gooey plastic. And hot enough to make thousands of people intent on proving or disproving the authenticity of a now-viral tweet.
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 is right around the corner, and thousands will be standing in line for a chance to purchase exclusive toy goodness. This year Mattel’s hitting the show with stuff from the Justice League movie, DC Super Hero Girls, Spider-Man, Cars and some team-based shooter game.
Entering a town is a defining moment in any Battlegrounds match. In open fields, you’re safe. You can see for miles, and shots are difficult to track over long distances. Enter a village or town, it’s different. Sixty alive. A car sits vacant in the street. Any other day a gamble, but today, it’s facing east. You…
Compare the release schedule of 2017 to that of 2007 and one of the biggest differences you’d see is the almost complete disappearance of licensed games for kids. Where once movies and TV shows would see average (at best) cash-ins released on PlayStation and Xbox, today they land on mobile, and are even worse. But…
GTA Online received a new game mode this week, Tiny Racers. Played from a top down perspective, it’s a new adversary mode that channels old-school GTA. Tiny Racers might seem fun, but sadly, it’s often better to watch it than to play it.
A couple weeks ago, Rockstar added mesmerizing “props” that GTA Online players can use to create stunt races, and the coolest ones aren’t just flashy—they bend and break tracks in new ways. (Seizure warning!)
The latest car added to GTA Online is the Infernus Classic, an expensive 80s-era Vice City vehicle that can now be driven around in modern-day Los Santos. One problem: the car is broken.
Rockstar recently added 20 stunt races to GTA Online, and they are bonkers. It helps that the new races focus on the most absurd vehicles, and together, these new tracks and stunt cars allow GTA Online to push the boundaries of what the player can experience.
Last year, Rockstar released a free update that added impressive stunt races full of floating racetracks and large jumps. That update was so good, it became one of my favorite things to do in GTA Online. Fortunately, Rockstar has now added 15 wild new stunt races to the repertoire, and they’re excellent as well.
Recently, a paranoia has taken a hold of some GTA Online players, who are convinced that recent updates are forcing drivers to be more aggressive. It’s probably not true, but the idea has gotten many sharing potential evidence of that conspiracy theory.
For almost 2 years, one of the most popular ways to earn money in GTA Online was to use an armored “Kuruma” car during the final part of a specific heist. Instead of riding motorcycles and dodging hundreds of police bullets, as the heist typically demanded, a crew could pile into an armored car and drive to safety.…
