MkEliteWorksX somehow built Chris Bosh as a dinosaur in NBA 2K13, and the results are pretty damn amazing.

NASCAR The Game has released 2 versions of their game on console, but now they’re set to release a PC version of the game next month. It’s been a while since NASCAR has hit the PC market. The last popular game for the PC was NASCAR Racing 2003, which still remains a cult favorite. The folks over at Eutechnyx who develop the game sent me a beta code to test out, and here are my first impressions.

First of all, I’m a big NASCAR guy, but when it comes to video game racing, I’m not as serious as some. I play the XBOX 360 version of the game, and loading the PC version up appears to be a seamless transition. It’s the same, simple to use menu navigation. Because the game is in beta mode, you can only run offline single player right now.

Of course, if you have the right equipment, PC gaming looks far and beyond better than anything on the console, and this game is no different. The graphics are incredible, and the new Gen6 cars are standard in the game (as opposed to the CoT), adding more realism. I was using the Xbox controller for PC, but the cars handle the same as the console version. I’ve heard complaints from serious racing gamers that car handling isn’t the best, but I personally don’t find it to be an issue.

Since this is a beta version, there were some hiccups. During my race, the only audio I could hear was my crew chief and nothing else (no cars around me, my own car, the crowd, etc.). Kind of made for a dull racing experience. Also, when you’re checking out the side of your car for damage, the car wasn’t centered in the shot, and it looked weird, not being able to see parts of your car at times (see image below):

I didn’t run a ton of laps, but the game is extremely smooth. Here are some screenshots that I took while driving with Kurt Busch. Some of them are from the “camera mode”, so it’ll look more polished than the gameplay pics. I’m sure you can tell the difference. It’s just the beta, but I’m really excited about the final release.
