Excerpt: Is it me or has the gaming industry lost its head? No racing in eight months followed by a hurricane month of racing games. If you developers want to share revenue I won’t mind giving you my account number.
Excerpt: Blur is pretty damn hard. I'm no pro at racing games, but can at least hold my own. With Blur , though, it's not just about finding the right lines or hitting the perfect drift - you have to learn to dodge all manner of projectiles as well.

Excerpt: Bizarre Creations was responsible for the excellent Project Gotham Racing series on the Xbox and Xbox 360. It was a racing title that set a fine line between arcade and simulation, but made a name of itself for its Kudos scoring system.
