F1 2017 [official site], Codemasters’ latest annual adaptation of The Chain by Fleetwood Mac, roared off the grid this morning. Once again, the avant-garde artgame uses fast cars to represent throbbing basslines and lyrical concepts such as running in the shadows, damning your love, and damning your lies. I can’t say I feel Codies’ interpretation in my heart own but hey, who am I to judge how a song feels to them? You can’t say they don’t commit to the metaphor, as they’ve released an update every year since 2009. And if you don’t love me now… (more…)

Change! Actual change! Other than, y’know, the three games that are here every single week, every single week I have to include them, every single week, they’re there, undying, changing, every single week, every single week.

The world’s largest sporting event may be going on (the RPS Summer Games, obvs) but not everyone’s invited. Apparently some old fella named Ian Lympics decrees what is and isn’t sport, and he has little time for anything invented after the 19th century.

When Codemasters announced F1 2016 [official site], they talked about safety cars and an improved career mode as the big exciting improvements to this year’s road-dolphin game. Pssh! Today they added that oh, yeah, now it supports full 22-player multiplayer too. That’s enough players in one race to fill a full Formula 1 starting grid without any AI drivers filling in. Also revealed today are Formation Laps, manual race starts, and more control with pit stops. Sim-u-like.

F1 2016 [official site] will arrive on August 19th, smack bang in the middle of the current Formula 1 racing season, Codemasters announced today. That means you could play along with a fair few races while watching them on television, I suppose. You’d get to tell your mates “Well, actually, I had the fastest time in the Japanese Grand Prix but due to a minor technicality…” then trail off as you turn away to sip your drink.
