Another Year, Another One-Trick Pony

While it continues to get the racing right, F1 2015 lacks the sort of depth that allows other sports games to truly ensnare players.

Codemasters released a second teaser trailer for the F1 2015 video game. Updates include a brand new game engine with new physics and more realistic tire performance.

A Game About The Sport, Not The Driver

There was a day where Formula One drivers were real, genuine characters. Since he burst onto the F1 scene over 40 years ago, James Hunt's legacy as a world champion has been outshined by his reputation as a hard-drinking, pot-smoking, cocaine-snorting womanizer whose devil-may-care attitude continues to charm four decades later.

Gran Turismo 6 is the driving game for the last-generation of video game consoles. Forza Motorsport 5 is the game for the next-generation of consoles. Doesn't seem like there's much middle ground, does it? Don't tell that to the folks behind Grid Autosports, though. The sequel to Grid 2 has just been announced for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC with an on-sale date this summer.

We'll cop to the fact that we might be a bit overly excited about the upcoming F1 2013 video game, specifically the Classic Edition. Codemasters has released umpteen trailers for the title already, mostly pretty cool ones, with cars lapping classic Formula One tracks that are set to be included in the fun.

Grid 2 players, get ready to rumble (in a good way). Due to popular demand, game developer Codemasters is now offering Demolition Derby mode as a free download. Originally available just for Grid, the popular racing video game's predecessor, this DLC takes players to Detroit Demolition Derby Stadium, where they can choose from two track configurations featuring collision-inducing crossover jumps. It includes the Jupiter Eagle Ray Mk 5 Demo Derby car, along with several customization choices, and

To promote Grid 2, Codemasters is releasing a set of three videos that feature Chris Harris. The second one has just been thrown all over the Internet, but it won't make much sense unless you watch the first video, which was released in January. In that video, Harris attempts to beat McLaren test driver Mat Jackson in a two-lap race of the UK's Brands Hatch circuit driving the MP4-12C. Midway through, Harris pauses the race to get tips from a Codemaster employee who tells him, essentially, "Stop

Codemasters has given us the rundown on the classic content in the two versions of F1 2013 that will be released on October 8. F1 2013 will offer all of this year's competitors, as well as a selection of Eighties cars, drivers and tracks like the 1980 Williams FW07B and 1986 Lotus 98T, along with drivers Alan Jones and Emerson Fittipaldi and courses like England's Brands Hatch and Spain's Circuit de Jerez.

Au courant with the Hungarian Grand Prix running this weekend, Codemasters has released in-game footage from F1 2013 of a hot lap video of the Hungaroring driven by Scuderia Toro Rosso's Daniel Ricciardo and narrated by ex-Formula One driver and current Sky F1 commentator and sportscar racer Anthony Davidson. The graphics have improved over F1 2012, Davidson's commentary is just as good as it was last year, and the rear-view mirrors are still huge.

Codemasters' series of Formula One games focus heavily on realism, both in terms of physics and appearance. Every team, every car and every driver are represented, with every track recreated in high definition and exacting detail.

It hasn't even been three weeks since the first Grid 2 DLC hit the digital intertubes, and here we are getting the second one. This could be because the Codemaster folks want to remedy one of the most noticeable omissions in a game we found an "awfully fun" way to pass time while you wait for a next-gen console: a lack of cars.

For years now, video game makers (and their marketing teams, more than likely) have sought to amp up the excitement of their new releases with wild and lavish special edition packages. Our own Call of Duty Prestige Master, John Neff, is sure to remember the functional night vision goggles that shipped with CoD's Modern Warfare 2, and the radio-controlled "surveillance vehicle" that was packed in with Black Ops. The monstrous Halo franchise has offered special edition games in a Master Chief head

The developers of Grid 2, which arrives in stores in May 31, three days later than originally announced, have decided to show us some details of the gameplay teased before in its new Racenet rivals system. Distinct from the career mode will be online modes that can accommodate 12 players paired by playlists and preferences like "anti-griefing," which can keep drivers who don't mind rubbin' separate from those who prefer no contact.

The steady drip of GRID 2 teasing, leading up to the game's May 28 release date, continues with a video, a press release and some new images from Codemasters.

The wait for the May 28th on-sale date of Grid 2 just official got a little bit more unbearable, as the sadists at Codemasters have released a trailer of actual game play. In short: it looks amazing.
