Project Cars developers making own console, the Mad Box

Slightly Mad Studios, the makers of honk 'em ups including Project Cars and Need For Speed: Shift, have announced plans to launch a games console of their very own. Less than one week into 2019, we already have a strong contender for Gaming Folly Of The Year. Unlike the Ouya, the last big attempt to establish a new player in the console market, this is…

Three cars and the truth: a belated Project Cars 2 demo

My 2018 prediction: the demo is coming back, baby, back. With so many games to choose from, and so many big names that haven't chart-topped with the expected ease, The Man will pursue new ways of making people crave his output. By new ways, I mean old ways. Free, limited demonstration editions of videogames: they are the future. Earlier this week, Bethesda offered a belated…

Parp parp! Project CARS 2 released

Slightly Mad Studios flashed the starting lights for their racing game Project CARS 2 [official site] yesterday, sending it roaring into the night and onto Steam. Stirling Matheson celebrated it (with some reservations) in our Project CARS 2 review, and I know I'll certainly trust the racing opinions of someone with a name like Stirling Matheson.

Project Cars 2 is addressing the first game’s flaws

I've taken some flak for how much I like the first Project Cars. No, it's not iRacing, but iRacing also doesn't have AI that is ready to start a race at precisely 1:33 AM on a Tuesday night, pause halfway through because the popcorn started popping and the pan needs to be jiggled, and then resume after a light snack. I'm busy, and often the…

Project Cars 2 trailer spares no thought for cold, wet cars

I worry about the cars in this new Project Cars 2 [official site] trailer. They're out in snow, ice, and torrential rain without so much as a scarf, mac, or mittens - dressed in the same liveries as on a sunny afternoon! I appreciate that weather systems with complex consequences are a big feature in the sequel to Slightly Mad's crowdfunded vroom 'em up but…

What, Wheelie (Really)? Project Cars 2 Announced

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…
