Weekly Racing Video Game News Episode 15: Left turn ahead - Team VVV

News Weekly Racing Video Game News Episode 15: Left turn ahead

For all the news in racing games this week, don't miss the weekly round-up.

In episode 15, we cover the release of NASCAR '14 from Eutechnyx, which launched just in time for the Daytona 500; a momentous motorsport occasion in the US, so I'm told. Unfortunately, though, it's not out in the UK until the end of March. So we handed it over to VVV's resident US correspondent and self-confessed NASCAR enthusiast Cody, who brought us a series of first look gameplay videos. My only gripe was was that his races were decidedly clean – after all, you can't have a NASCAR race without some sort of spectacular pileup. 

Elsewhere, the whereabouts of DriveClub remain unclear, but we think we may now have an inkling as to why Sony has remained suspiciously silent: it might just involve a peripheral that rivals a certain VR headset

Then we had the news that Sony and Microsoft are about to see a spike in controller sales after players inevitibly break them in fits of rage from playing Trials Fusion, RedLynx's next-gen debut of the easy-to-play but tricky to master physics-based bike 'em up that finally lets PlayStation owners in on the fun and pain. 

And if you fancy burning a gaping hole into your wallet, look no further than the Lamborghini DLC packs released for Need for Speed: Rivals containing just two cars each.

All this and more besides is covered in our latest racing game news round-up embedded below. Links to all articles discussed in this week's episode can also be found below.
