PostHeaderIcon 5 New JDM Cars Added to Gran Turismo Sport Via This Month’s Free Update

There once was a time when Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) cars were deemed as forbidden fruits for a lot of American buyers. We can blame the Imported Motor Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988 for that, but, in a roundabout way, we can also thank the same law, or at least a small concession within the law that indicated that any car can enter the U.S., fully exempt from federal safety and emissions standards, provided that said car is 25 years old according to the date of manufacture. This concession is important because a lot of the sought-after JDM cars from the ’80s and ‘90s have been finding their way into the U.S. market in recent years. Most of these cars can be bought for $10,000 to $25,000 depending on the model, but for those without that kind of scratch, Gran Turismo Sport is offering a cheaper alternative in the form of a new downloadable car pack made up exclusively of some of our favorite JDM cars. The new pack is a JDM fanatic’s dream come to (virtual) life, and you better believe that I’m one of those people.

PostHeaderIcon The LEGO Speed Champions Expansion for Forza Horizon 4 Is Everything We Thought It would Be

Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have proven themselves adept at being purveyors of fun and excitement when it comes to injecting a little wackiness into the Forza video game franchise. This time, the developers of the Forza Horizon 4 are venturing off the beaten path into a world where blocky cars and blocky race tracks reign supreme. Following the success of the Hot Wheels expansion pack on Forza Horizon 3, Microsoft has teamed up with LEGO to unleash the LEGO Speed Champions Expansion Pack. Microsoft dropped the bombshell news at the 2019 E3 Gaming Expo. The Lego Speed Champions DLC for Forza Horizon 4 launches June 13.

PostHeaderIcon Forza Street Mobile Game is Out and You Can Get it for Free

Hype around a possible mobile Forza game was extremely high, even though some people in the know warned that the upcoming title wasn’t what people were expecting. In fact, as it turns out, the new Forza Street game is not even a new game, but rather a rebranding of an older game that Microsoft launched last year, one that never really saw much success, called Miami Street.

PostHeaderIcon Dirt Rally 2.0 might be the best hardcore rally simulation game ever

Codemasters decided to give its popular but ultimately arcade style Dirt series a much more simulation-oriented spin when it launched the first Dirt Rally game in late 2015. Now, a sequel to that first Dirt simulation has been released, called Dirt Rally 2.0, and it seems to have impressed many high profile gaming outlets, as well as a series of driving game loving YouTubers. Some even say it could be the best rally game ever, finally surpassing a game that dates back to 2004 (and many avid rally sim fans still swear by it to this day). I am, of course, talking about Richard Burns Rally (RBR), a game that at the time of its launch was considered ahead of its time in many areas.

PostHeaderIcon Is Ride 3 the Best Motorbike Simulator Game Ever?

Ride 3 is the third installment in the Ride series and one that adds more bikes, more tracks, more customization, more performance upgrades and, well, just more of everything compared to Ride 2.
