You’d think that blinding a professional driver with a custom Oculus Rift headset as they drift around a track would be a crazy way to promote anything. And you’d be right. But, well, Castrol EDGE really wants you to know about its new Titanium Strong motor oil. So much so that it strapped a VR headset on racer Matt Powers and turned a Roush Stage 3 Mustang into a VR controller for its Virtual Drift Trial. From his perspective he’s navigating through an apocalyptic VR landscape with crumbling roads and tidal waves of volcanic rock. From ours, it’s as if he’s got a death wish like an extra from Mad Max: Fury Road.

NetherRealm has released a trailer showing how Jason will play when he arrives in Mortal Kombat X on May 5th, and he’s every bit as ruthless as you’d expect for a mass murderer who’s been killed many times over. You may not be sure whether you should wince or laugh — without spoiling things, it’s safe to say that Jason is especially good at carving his foes into pieces.
DiRT Rally is a game about realistic rally driving, and nothing else. There’s no glamor, no in-your-face EDM or punk music, no showcase events, no Ken Block or Gymkhanas. DiRT Rally puts you in a car with a copilot, and throws you down point to point tracks against the clock. It’s rallying at its most basic, and it’s great. It’s an Early Access Game on Steam. This means it’s playable but unfinished, so there’s plenty of time for developer Codemasters to add to the game, but DiRT Rally is already excellent.
