What, Wheelie (Really)? Project Cars 2 Announced

By Alice O'Connor on June 23rd, 2015.

Now that Project Cars (I refuse to roll with that daft ‘Community Assisted Racing Simulator’ backronym) has been out for a whole six weeks, it’s time for a sequel. Yes, really.

Developers Slightly Mad Studios yesterday announced Project Cars 2 [official site], a follow-up to their 2015 race ‘em up. It’ll bring new ‘loose surface’ track types, co-op career, and more. Slightly Mad are once again crowdfunding it and does this feel a bit weird to anyone else?

Project CARS Released For Wheel (For Real)

By Alice O'Connor on May 7th, 2015.

“Here in my car I feel safest of all,” sang Gary Numan. “I can lock all my doors,” he added. “It’s the only way to live – in cars.” But what would our electric friend say about Project CARS [official site]. I phoned his agent, and, well, looks like I’m writing this news post.

After delay after delay after delay (I’m missing a few there), Slightly Mad Studios’ partially-crowdfunded car ‘em up finally came out yesterday. It has a lot of cars and you can drive them around lots of places, but really you’re ‘supposed’ to drive them fast.

Car Porn: Project Cars Multiplayer Trailer Is A Menage-A-28

By Emily Gera on April 26th, 2015.

There’s something about watching trailers for racing games like Project Cars¬†[official site] that makes me feel like I’m going to have to confess it to my nearest priest. Even the taglines are full-throttle sex. In fact, let’s play a little game of Who Said It:

Who said the line “What matters is finishing first.” Is it:

a.) Project Cars
b.) Caligula

Project CARS Has A Release Date Again Again Again Again

By Alec Meer on April 16th, 2015.

nice gold hubs bro

November, March, April, May. Slightly Mad’s extremely pretty racing game Project CARS [official site] has just named its latest date, and while the temptation to add a pinch of the old sodium chloride to this is there, perhaps the fact that May 8th (reports Eurogamer) is a mere three weeks away suggests this is actually, really, honestly happening this time.

20 Thoughts On The Project CARS Renault Trailer

By Philippa Warr on April 10th, 2015.

The majesty of the windfarm at sundown.

Project CARS [official site] – that racing game which should be coming out mid-May following a bunch of delays and shiny pictures of shiny cars being shiny – has a new trailer. It’s far less about “racing” and far more about textures and surfaces and loving and caressing vehicles through camera angles.

Here are twenty (20) thoughts about the whole thing:

Revvin’ All Over The World: Project CARS Tracks Trailer

By Alice O'Connor on March 24th, 2015.

ROMANCE.

Numbers are very important to car fanatics, I understand. Torque, litres, cylinders, MPH, MPG – top numbers, great stuff. A new Project CARS [official site] trailer also focuses on numbers, even when showing all the pretty places it’ll be racing around.

About the California Highway track, for example, it says simply: LENGTH 26.4 km; TURNS 107. What of the fragrant Douglas-fir! The distant roar of the Pacific! The allure of redwoods! The bigfoot chainsaw sculptures at every roadside stop! I bet you can’t even get out and swim in a river. Tch, no romance, those car people. It is quite pretty, though.

Stalled: Project CARS’ Latest Delay

By Philippa Warr on March 12th, 2015.

So pretty

Back when I used to write about console games I remember covering racing game Driveclub’s repeated delays – how the game slipped from a launch title for PS4 to an early 2014 title to a slightly later 2014 title and eventually came out in October of that year.

Great times.

It’s nice, then, that Project CARS [official site] is trying to fill that delayed console game void in my heart with another delay of its own.

Project CARS Is Still A Good Reason To Have Eyes

By Graham Smith on January 20th, 2015.

My steering wheel is sat on the floor collecting dust, while the pedals below my desk are used more for footsie than for acceleration. Project CARS will be the reason I next set it up, I reckon. I’m not a huge fan of racing games – I prefer my vehicles to be driven within a speed limit in service of the delivery of goods – but it looks so pretty. I want to see the puddles go sploosh and the cars go shimmer, and the latest trailer isn’t enough.

Diverted: Project CARS Delayed To Dodge Competition

By Alice O'Connor on October 20th, 2014.

Ooh no, it's far too wet out there. Best wait until spring.

Project CARS? More like Project DELAYED! When we last gawped at Slighty Mad’s oh-so-pretty drive ‘em up, it was slated for release in November. Now that November is almost here, they’ve announced hey, wait, no, it’s been delayed into next year. Until March 20th, to be precise — a delay of four months. The official story is that this “positions the title away from the competitive holiday scene dominated by household names” and, sure, gives more time to work on it too.

Nearing The Finish Line: Project CARS Gamescom Trailer

By Graham Smith on August 18th, 2014.

Videogames' best puddles.

There’s all kinds of things I like to pretend I’m above, like throwing recyclable materials in the normal rubbish when there’s no space left in the recycling bin. I feel no need to pretend that I’m above loving some shiny videogame graphics, though. The Project CARS Gamescom trailer is, like every image of the in-development racing game, absurdly gorgeous. And embedded below, obv.

Hot Rods And Vroom Sticks: Project CARS

By Adam Smith on June 11th, 2014.

Project CARS may not have the open America and sightseeing adventures of The Crew, but it’s a supremely attractive game. With a variety of motorsports and historic goals, the game sees your driver attempting to take a place in the hall of fame. To do that, you’ll have to drive really really really really fast. Make sure not to crash as well, I guess, but definitely concentrate on going fast. I’ve analysed the E3 trailer, which arrives with a reiteration of the November release window, and you’ll find a complete breakdown below.

A Battle For The Ages: Project CARS Vs Real Life

By Nathan Grayson on April 29th, 2014.

I’m not sure if Project CARS is the car-est car game of all time like Need For Speed: Shift developer Slightly Mad is claiming, but it is ludicrously attractive. These days I tend to keep my eyeballs¬†inside my skull unless a technicolor dream art style saunters by, but I guess my heart-on for shiny things wot look like real world cameragrams hasn’t entirely atrophied. Case in point: the latest CARS (not to be confused with Pixar’s inside voice/terrible take on the word) trailer matches the game against real life in a 1:1 vroom-vroom competition. Mr President, I know you’re reading this, so let’s just get it out of the way now: I think we’re gonna need a bigger graphics.

Vehicular Particulars: Project Cars Launches November

By Adam Smith on April 25th, 2014.

Project Cars is a ludicrously pretty game. I’m not the kind of fellow who feels the need to have a cold shower every time a fancy car drives past but I do appreciate attractive machinery. The cars in Project Cars look more like real cars than the cars that I can see outside the window right now. As well as looking more realistic, the digital cars look far more expensive (I live just inside Salford) and are going quite a bit faster. On top of all that, the music playing in the background of the trailer gives the automobile extravaganza a far more grand and elegant air than my current choice of The Walkmen’s Bows + Arrows (not as good as memory suggested). Basically, if you appreciate shiny cars going very fast then this is probably the video for you. Game’s out November.
