Distance's marriage of cyberpunk horror and arcade-style madness may make it the most creative racing game I’ve played since Grand Theft Auto V’s Cunning Stunts expansion.
Nintendo’s latest console, the Switch, is off to a promising start, and next month Mario Kart 8 will get a rebirth of sorts, this time in Deluxe form.
Many have followed, but few touch the bar that Mario Kart 64 established for kart racing, and it found its way to North American shelves on this day in 1997.
The Nintendo Switch is hoping to offer a vast library of varied titles right from the jump, and if the recent preview event in New York City is any indication that hope is resting on solid ground. The room holding the event housed over a dozen games coming either at launch or soon afterward.
Few games provide as liberating an experience as getting behind the wheel of an exotic car in Forza Horizon 3, tearing through the Australian outback, and chasing the pack in the hopes of being the first to cross that finish line.
Games that have a purpose of pushing technology are always in a precarious position. On one hand, if the game succeeds, then it stands a chance of being a trendsetter in the advancements it introduces to the industry as a whole. On the other hand, if...
It was on this day in particular that F-Zero X was released on the Nintendo 64, bringing unparalleled speed and smoothness to the racing genre.

Lambos have come a long way over the past three decades, and the Centenario is work of art. It's also a blast to drive through the beaches of Australia, even if it is just a video game.
The recent (and bewildering) success of Steam titles like American Truck Simulator have shined a light on the pleasures of digital trucking, but over the years there have actually been quite a few games about hauling cargo on the open road. This list highlights 10 of the most notable. While I’d like to say that these are all forgotten classics, the reality is that some of these games rank among the worst ever created.
