Real Racing 3 to FINALLY get Real-Time Multiplayer… on iOS only

December 12th, 2013 by

rr3_multi_update

Electronic Arts and Firemonkeys are about to make a lot of racing fans either really happy or really sad with its next update.

In addition to the two new cars, the Lamborghini Veneno and McLaren P1, the game is finally getting the much sought after real-time multiplayer in addition to the standard asynchronous time-shifted events.

The catch? Real-Time Multiplayer uses GameCenter and, thus, is available only to iOS players. And, thus, the great divide widens as if millions of Android users cried out in anger and were suddenly ignored. You may as well get your popcorn ready, because the “statistically, more people use Android” outrageous butthurt festival is about to begin over on their Google Play page.

October 8th, 2013 by

If you’re playing Real Racing 3, there’s a good chance you’re toiling away race after race, trying to hoard enough R$ and Gold for the next big upgrade or a shiny new car. If that sounds a lot like you, then you might need a little help farming cash and fame.

Here’s a quick video tutorial for you Real Racing 3 fans. Don’t forget to check out our guide for more tips from myself and the RR3 community.

Of all the races I have access to thus far, this is the place I like the most when trying to farm. It is easy to race, requires no repairs, and has a great cash-time ratio.

Real Racing 3 brings more Porsche to the… Consortia?

September 3rd, 2013 by

Real Racing 3, the game the Internet hated way more than regular people did, has announced the next content update with the following teaser trailer.

Seven, count ‘em, SEVEN generations of Porsche 911′s are coming to the next update. If the previous teasers are any indication, the update should hit in a matter of days and completely ruin any chance I have of ever completely updating my Real Racing 3 guide again.

If you haven’t played the game in a while, perhaps it’s time to give it a shot again. Reduced timers, changes to the way you reach content, and fixed Endurance races are just the tip of the (come on… think of an iceberg equivalent for cars, Fade…) exhaust pipe? Fender? Wait, what do you hit with cars? Pedestrians? Someone help me out here.

Seven more cars now brings Real Racing 3 to a grand total of 69 cars, a plurality of which will now be Porsche 911′s.

Real Racing 3 Dubai update live, now with Lexus cars!

May 30th, 2013 by

The latest update for Real Racing 3, revealed just a few days back, has already dropped adding a new track in the Dubai Autodrome.

More importantly, four new cars are now available for purchase in the Dodge Charger R/T, Dodge Charger SRT8, Lexus IS F, and Lexus LFA. The IS F and LFA are the first two Lexus cars in the game, bringing the total number of car manufacturers to 14. This also takes the total number of cars available to a whopping 53!

The update also brings 50 new events to the table. While most people came into the game with trepidation in the transition to free-to-play, only one of the four new cars costs Gold to purchase at a fair 130 Gold for the Lexus LFA. You can get that in a couple of days if you’ve got the gumption and a stable of cars to avoid waiting on the repair timers.

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 now available in Real Racing 3

Real Racing 3 fans were greeted by an interesting push notification today.

The previous Real Racing 3 update brought the Chevrolet brand to the game with two cars, the Chevrolet Cobalt SS and Chevorlet Camaro ZL1. What we didn’t know was that there was more goods under the hood.

A third Chevrolet car, the Corvette ZR1, was unlocked in Real Racing 3 and is now available for purchase for 50 Gold.

Chevy fans who were underwhelmed by the Cobalt and Camaro should now be pleased.

Real Racing 3: Tips & Tricks Guide

Real Racing 3 Tips & Tricks Guide
I absolutely love Real Racing 3, but a lot of people are upset about the freemium model. It’s no wonder, when you consider the previous games were paid apps, but there really aren’t that many things standing between you and fun.

There seems to be an awfully vocal segment of the community upset about this not being a paid app. I get it. No one likes timers. However, these timers are miniscule compared to the fun you can have for next-to-nothing.

Let’s make free-to-play fun-to-play, again.

Episode 012 – The Dilemma of Time, a Mystic Wonder

In this episode of the Delta Attack Podcast, the DA Crew meet up with Stanley and Peabody in the Wayback Machine. Things get fractured, but you will believe a squirrel can fly. Moose? Not so much.

Today, Fade to Slack goes on the attack when defending Real Racing 3, Markham Asylum tells us about Etrian Odyssey IV and how the best JRPG franchise you probably haven’t played just got better, and Mark A. Brooks talks about the gratuitous fun of MonTowers. Somehow or another, we reminisce about a game you wouldn’t catch most gamers looking back fondly upon, but we own it. You only live once, kids.

Note: We have a few moments of broken audio from internet latency issues. We apologize for the technical difficulties. It’ll likely happen again, so I won’t give you that spiel. Just giving you a head’s up. It doesn’t last long, we promise. Thank you, Audacity!

Hit the start button, break out your zapper, and get ready for some mega fun.

Review: Real Racing 3 (iOS)

February 28th, 2013 by

RR3_title

A lot of people are going to be comparing Real Racing 3 to its predecessor, Real Racing 2. Not having played any racing simulation seriously since Forza Motorsport 2, I can assure you that I am not that guy.

What I do know, however, is that Real Racing 2 was a paid app. Real Racing 3 is a free-to-play game, and that comes with the free-to-play annoyances. There are a lot of questions lingering around this transition.

Is Real Racing 3 the real deal, or is it a raw deal?
