This is the Furrion Prothesis exoskeleton. It is a giant 8,000-pound mech that should be saved for our defense when Godzilla and his enemies show up. Apparently, it’s designed for mech racing, but it could also be used to destroy homes and small cities while stomping civilians into dust.

Growing up when I went to the arcade, I gravitated towards the driving games. I played the crap out of Pole Position and any other racing game I could get my mitts on. Only a few years later, driving games sort of fell out of popularity and they left the arcade sticking me with nothing but fighting games.

Redditor veriix wanted to have an Oculus Rift racing simulation setup, but he also wanted to stay married to his wife. So he gave up on his dream of having a conventional racing rig… and built something way cooler.
I have to be honest. I haven’t been a Nintendo fan for ages. These consoles that once had great games just haven’t had anything worth playing for ages. That’s just my opinion. However, this footage from Mario Kart 8 has me actually excited for a Nintendo game.
Xbox One gamers who really like the racing game Forza Motorsport 5 have something to be excited about this week. The game has received its very first track add-on. That means that the game has a brand new race track for you to play on.

If you like cars, racing games, and own an Xbox 360 you’ve probably played at least one of the games in the Forza franchise. The latest game in the franchise is Forza Horizon and a new expansion pack for the game has launched this week.
