Can’t make it out to Washington for Formula Drift? No worries! Watch it right now below! Thank us later!
Usually when we think of a “CEO” we think of some stuffy old person in a suit who most likely doesn’t use or much less enjoy the products or services they hock on the rest of the population. Sure, Bill Gates uses Windows on his home computer but do you think hes on Xbox Live once a week yelling profanities as he gets aggro on newbs in Halo? Probably not! This is why a guy like Ralph Gilles is refreshing. Sure he ran the business end of SRT and has to do all the boring stuff but at heart he is a car nut like the rest of us. He is every bit of the enthusiast and he is not afraid to show it one bit! Hence the video below in which Mr Gilles peels off one heck of a monster burn out in the upcoming 707HP Dodge Challenger “Hellcat” in front of a roaring crowd. Seriously, can we just make this guy the next President already? I’d totally vote for him!

While Microsoft and Sony have their racing games, other studios have been making what I like to call “driving games”. Simply put the difference between a “racing game” and a “driving game” is that a racing game is about competitive racing and little else. A driving game is a game that might have a narrative story that has driving and cars as its core mechanic. For example Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo are both racing games while Forza Horizon and Need For Speed are driving games. See the difference?
I personally like both types of games but when it comes to driving games Need For Speed is one of my favorites. Unfortunately, EA is taking a break in 2014 to put more time into the next Need For Speed game which means we aren’t getting one this year. Bummer right? Well, maybe not! Ubisoft is looking to fill the Need For Speed-sized hole in our hearts with their new open world driving game “The Crew” specifically designed for the now “current gen” consoles like Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
I had a chance to play it for a while at E3 this year and I have to say I was… Well, just watch the video below for my initial thoughts. I filmed this just moments after playing!
Gaming Hype: Hot Wheels Car Pack DLC Brings Audi Auto Union And Lamborghini Veneno To Forza Motorsport 5 (With Video)
The Forza 5 DLC just keeps on chugging along with a brand new DLC pack for this month. Their newest offering, curated by Hot Wheels brings a slew of classics and a few modern cars to Forza Motorsport 5. As seen above, owners of the DLC will get to drive the fabled Audi Auto Union (one of the rarest collector cars on the planet) as well as the gundam-esque Lamborghini Veneno! There are also plenty of other gems included in the DLC but I will let you see it all for yourself by watching the video below! By the way the Hot Wheels car pack DLC is available now!
….pst…hey…did you see it? ……A-Team van!!!

When most people hear the term “MMO” they think of games like World Of Warcraft and DOTA. Adventure games seem to have single-handedly defined the MMO genre but that is slowly starting to change as other game genre’s are taking up the MMO format. What’s most interesting to me is when racing games start to do it. In a way, the new Forza Horizon game is something of an MMO but as its limited to consoles it wouldn’t quite have the chance to dethrone some of the other games I’ve mentioned. Slightly Mad Studios (the team behind the up coming Project CARS) is taking on the MMO as well in their new “Free-To-Play” game World Of Speed.
Now when the idea of a free MMO racing game is presented many questions come to mind, especially: “how ‘free’ is it really?” Luckily we had a chance to speak with the game’s director Andy Tudor at E3 2014 and discuss some of these burning questions. You can watch it all below and you can click any of the thumbnails in this post for HD resolution screenshots!

Hype: Honda Releases Incredibly Weird 1 Minute Civic Type R Trailer With Only 3 Seconds Of Actual Civic In It (Video)
Remember back in the 80s and 90s when those incredibly weird and abstract perfume commercials would come on and anyone watching would have no idea what the commercial was for until the last few seconds? Well it looks like the people behind those spots had kids and now those kids are the ad agency of record for Honda… There are creepy mannequin ladies, evil wolves, cyborg people, an apocalyptic city and all manner of weird crap going on for almost the entire 60 second run time then right near the end we get a whole three seconds…count ‘em, THREE SECONDS of the Civic Type R concept! What in the name of Zeus’ butthole were they (Honda’s ad agency) trying to accomplish with this spot besides freaking us all out?
Seriously watch this “R Rated” (not really) video below, then show it to people you know and then time how long it will be before they furl their eyebrows in a classic “WTF” facial expression!
Did you get so busy watching the World Cup this weekend that you completely forgot about Formula One in Austria? We forgive you, because we did the same thing. How about that Korea vs Algeria match huh?! Anyhow, chances are you probably forgot to DVR the race as well so if you need the results they are below as well as a race highlight reel which nicely recaps all the craziness from the weekend.

Apart from bouncing around to all the new racing games at E3 2014 I also made a few of my usual rounds, including the Playseat Racing booth. Whenever I stop by Playseat I know they will have a few new things in store for the year and they kept the streak going this year with not one, not two, but three new bits of awesome! The first is their new Top Gear partnership resulting in Top Gear branded seat rigs! Finally, a Playseat with “The Stig” on it! They also showed off their new screen mount which supports a 3-screen set up, and the final thing…well you are going to want to watch the video below to see what it is. Trust me when I tell you its awesome!
