Vroom Vroom: Ride Demo Now Revving

Milestone have been making zoom-zoom motorbike games for years now, but always working with someone else's license - the Motocross World Championship, Superbike World Championship, and MotoGP. Licenses bring profile but also pressures, and their games have come out pretty mediocre. What would happen if they get to make their own thing their own way? You can see for yourself now, as they've released a…

Ride: A Game In Which One Rides (Motorbikes)

I have dreams of prowling through forest in Oregon or Washington on a sweet hog, just me and the open road - like James Hurley but less of an arse. I also once had someone show me the flesh-flecked insides of their leather trousers after an accident. I have Thoughts on motorbikes, I'm saying, but few are related to this game. I'm wasting your damn…

Motocross My Heart: MXGP

I spent a frankly ludicrous amount of time playing Motocross Madness 2. Along with 1nsane (was there ever a sequel called In2ane?), it was one of two semi-open world driving games that I found much more enjoyable than track-based offerings. The joy of driving up the biggest hill in sight, spinning through the air with all the grace of an airborne emu and crumpling into…

Black Bean Confirm WRC Date

It's the 8th of October! There's not been much choice out there for rally folks who wanted something other than Codemaster's heavily coolified Dirt 2, so it'll be interesting to see how Black Bean get on with the old fashioned tea-in-a-Thermos rallying licence of the WRC. Limited details and a brief trailer (is that poking some fun at Dirt 2?) are available over on the…

Speedticular Bicyles: SBK-X Demo

RPS know almost as much about bike-racing as foot-to-ball. As such, we're all sure to be absorbed in SBK-X when it hits. Until then, here's a demo, featuring the Portimao track, where you have to dodge between portable miniature Communist Chinese Leaders without dying or something. Four weather modes are included, plus two drivers: Max Biaggi and Cal Curthlow, who are the quick but fast…

SBK 09 Superbike World Championship Demo

Motorbikes have never been sensible. I mean you can't fall off a car, can you? Anyway, they do nevertheless produce racing excitements unlike any other, and the videogames which accurately portray the about-to-die experience of going very fast on a motorbike are few and far between. SBK 09 Superbike World Championship is hoping to get close with its licenced high-speed shenanigans, and you can play…
