SA Gamer Awards 2016: Best Racing Game

If there’s one thing that’s certain it’s that we’ll see several racing titles launching annually to please those of us who have petrol racing through our veins. 2016 saw its fair share of racing games, but there was really only one racing game that won the hearts over of racing game fanatics, and even non-racing games alike: Forza Horizon 3 Forza Horizon 3 is not only the b...

Blast from the Past: Project Gotham Racing (Xbox)

After all these years it seems it's run out of kudos

The Burning Question: Where have all the arcade racers gone?

There has always been a distinct line between simulation racing games and arcade racers that break the rules and allow you to do everything that should not be possible. Problem is that it’s changed a bit lately. The arcade racing games we have loved for years have all but vanished. Do you remember Burnout? How about Crazy Taxi? Oh, you’re more of a Ridge Racer kind of person? There wer...

SA Gamer Awards 2015: Best Racing Game

There’s not a year that goes by without a relatively decent racing game and 2015 was no different. There were two racing games in particular that went head-to-head as the best simulation racing game and one walked away victorious: Forza Motorsport 6 After the typical launch game that Forza Motorsport 5 ended up being Turn 10 Studios had one goal in mind with Forza Motorsport 6 – make i...

These are the cars you can VROOM VROOM in Need for Speed

I have never been a lover of racing games, or track racing games to be more specific. I would usually get to a point where I just don’t know how to improve and don’t really have the patience to learn. I have always loved the more arcadey racing games though. Ridge Racer back in the day, SEGA Rally, more recently with Forza Horizon and of course the good old Need for Speed games. One th...

Have your gaming preferences changed over time?

Gamers are a special bunch, we have such various tastes in what we play, whether it be something with a good story, good gameplay, fun multiplayer or a combination of all the ingredients to make the ULTIMATE GAME! But how have your preferences changed over time, or perhaps they haven’t? If I think about myself, a lot of my preferences have remained the same. I still, obviously, love sport ga...

Video: The new WRC 5 trailer gets dirty

Not so long ago we showcased a developer diary that explains where the team plans to take the franchise next, but now there’s an announcement trailer that shows off everything the game has to offer. It’s another one of those titles that’ll be launching on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and Vita, so don’t expect the detail to be too high and in line with current generation...

MotoGP 15 Launch Trailer Goes Vroom Vrooooooom

I used to love MotoGP games, but mostly because it reminded of the motorbike games at the arcades. Playing at home has never quite been the same though I have seen a pretty decent improvement in the games over time. I didn’t play the last one but I know it was received well and MotoGP 15 is looking pretty damn tasty. The launch trailer below shows just a glimpse of the gameplay but might jus...

Video: F1 2015 teaser trailer and delayed to July

Here at SA Gamer we have a deranged F1 lunatic, and that’s me. I’ve been waiting for what feels like an eternity to get my first look at F1 2015 in motion, which launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in… 10 July. Yes, it’s been delayed from 12 June to July. No reasons were given, but we’re expecting they need a bit more time with the game. You’ll blink and it’l...

Project Cars Will Give You A Free New DLC Car Every Month

Ready, Set, GO GET FREE STUFF! The Project Cars development team wanted to thank gamers for their patience after numerous delays, by giving away a free car DLC every month. The first free car is the Lykan Hypersport, and will be available when the game finally releases in May. I think it’s a great way to say thanks to fans who’ve had to wait through numerous delays. By the same token, ...

Project CARS Is Delayed… Again

Looks like 2015 is another year full of delays, as yet another game is pushed back a few weeks. This time round it’s Project CARS, making this its third delay. Bandai Namco recent announced that the game will be released around mid-May, a few weeks after its initial April release date. The reason for the delay, this time, is that there are some bugs that they need to sort out before the game...
