GSY Video PC Xbox One

If you're a Virtua Racing nostalgic, chances are you've already purchased the excellent remeaster which was released on Nintendo Switch, but you might also be happy to know that Formula Retro Racing has just come out and it's a true love letter to the old arcade racing games of yesteryear. For €10.79, you get 8 circuits, one car model coming in different colors, 2 game modes (arcade and eliminator), 3 difficulty settings and the inevitable online leaderboards. Multiplayer is sadly absent, which is a bit of a shame as it would have reminded us of our time competing against other players at the old arcades, but it's hard to blame the one guy behind this game. Other than that, you get pretty much what you'd expect from such a title, no more, no less, but we've truly enjoyed our time playing. We'd like to thank Alan from Team VVV for letting us know about the game and sharing a code with us.

the "Start Your Engines" and "Time Extended" V.O. really pulled on my nostalgia strings.
have to agree no multiplayer is a shame, but understandable given its one guy behind it.

    alimokrane one time purchase of a console when they can sell you a $15 to $20 sub each month and keep you for years? They are hitting both the console, handheld and mobiles gaming segments all at once! (6 Hours ago)

    alimokrane Game Pass is an incredible value for money right now and I cant see anyone who is already subscribed to it, not continuing if they keep the games coming. Why would they care about a $500 .... (6 Hours ago)

  • alimokrane

    alimokrane published original content available on Game Pass. Delaying Halo Infinite to achieve that is more important than launching the console itself. Microsoft is playing on a whole other level now. (6 Hours ago)

    alimokrane @b0vril & @MrWhite: Microsoft NO longer cares about whether you buy their console or not. They care about you subscribing to Game Pass, full stop. To make Game Pass a good sell, they need polished ... (6 Hours ago)
