Mario Kart Live Home Circuit Review : A big AR checkpoint

Mario Kart Live Home Circuit Review : A big AR checkpoint

The Nintendo Switch game Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is a masterpiece of simple yet extraordinary at-home gaming fun. It combines good game design with the magic of successfully bridging the gap between reality and virtual reality with one of the most ideal implementations of augmented reality we've experienced so far.

The GMA T.50 hypercar now has an even more “astonishing” version

Gordon Murray Automotive already showed us its vision for a hypercar - somehow both thoroughly modern and celebrating traditional values - and now it's cranking that up even further with a T.50s racing version.

Logitech G has a pretty long history of making gaming accessories, but generally, we’re used to seeing it make things like mice and keyboards. Today the company is branching out to more a niche market, announcing the Logitech G923 racing wheel, seemingly a follow-up to the G920. While probably not on the shortlist of items to buy for most gamers, it certainly sounds like Logitech G has put a decent amount of work into the G923 for the racing enthusiasts among us.

What have Ford Performance and RTR done to this drifting Mustang Mach-E?

All eyes may have been on the new Bronco this week, but Ford's other big truck news of late, the Mustang Mach-E, seems intent on stealing back the limelight. Announced last year, the electric crossover heads to dealerships later in 2020, though the feistiest Mustang Mach-E GT won't arrive until next year.

DiRT 5, the go-to for best graphics on Xbox Series X?

Watching the full Xbox Series X collection of trailers in Microsoft's presentation today, one game stood out for extraordinary graphics finesse.

The game is called Star Wars Episode I: Racer, and it's back in action in May of 2020.

The Formula E crucible: How Audi brings e-tron race tech to the road

2019 marks Formula E’s fifth year of staging races in major cities around the world, and early skepticism around whether electric cars could capture race-fans' imaginations seem finally to have been dispatched. The chassis, brakes, battery and tires are the same for the 11 teams and 22 cars. It’s a team’s intellectual property - the electric motor, inverter, gearbox, and battery/thermal management software – that separates the winners from the losers.
