We've seen electric off-roaders tackle the Dakar Rally, but racing on the Baja peninsula has proven elusive -- until this weekend. After driving in smaller races, SRI's EV1 has joined the big leagues by starting in NORRA's Mexican 1000 rally. The 535HP, 400kW open-wheeler has participated in at le...

Well, not literally, but it would seem that THQ has thrown out its lawsuit against Activision over the boxart for Baja 1000: Score International. Activision has altered the boxart for their game (catch the image past the break), but, seeing as how the game has been available for a short while now,...

Even with THQ filing lawsuit against Activision for the cover of Baja 1000, the game is hitting store shelves anyway. A U.S. District Court judge has said "the hardship to plaintiff (THQ) is unclear, as Plaintiff has presented no evidence of hardship." The judge went on further to say that the "ba...

We've got five (count 'em, five) new Xbox 360 games this week. Probably the biggest of the bunch is Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, which finally arrives after numerous delays. Aside from Brothers in Arms we have LEGO Batman, which we imagine will be an awful lot like LEGO Indiana Jones which wa...

It's almost like magic. The first day of Autumn hits tomorrow and the game industry intends to start the season as it means to go on. In short, by throwing game after game directly at your face until your wallet sits empty and your hands are blistered from constant gaming. Ouch. Here's the full re...

There's nothing quite like driving in dirty environments with a rugged vehicle. We imagine. But driving in said environments with three other friends? Now that'd make a good multiplayer video, which is exactly what we have here for the upcoming racing title Baja due out in September. The envi...

The new trend in video games seems to be this: they will try their hardest to make it easy on you. First we heard Alone in the Dark would let you skip portions of the game if they were too hard or you couldn't figure out a puzzle. Now we hear THQ's Baja will actually let the AI drive for you if you'...

At a recent sampling of THQ games, Baja entertained me, although I had a hard time deciding if it was a simulation or an arcade racer. Its developers touted the simulation and how accurately the game captures off-road racing. Not being an off-road driver, I can't make a comparison. Relative to oth...

Promising 40 vehicles, 95 tracks, a robust physics system and a helluvah lot of dirt, THQ's Baja (set to release this August) is turning out to be a serious contender in the off-road racing genre. At least on paper. Recently, IGN sat down with the Baja dev team to talk specifics regarding how the t...

Baja (pronounced "badger," we hope) is a multiplatform off-road racing game from THQ which, no doubt, seeks to show MotorStorm 2 a thing or two about the genre. Will it succeed? We haven't a clue, but the above video doesn't excite us much. IGN have a long interview with the developers, which you mi...

THQ is on a mission to make the most realistic, most customizable and largest off-road racer ever and they think they've perfected the formula with recently announced Baja. Being developed by the founding members of MX vs. ATV, Baja is being pitched as the creme-de-la-creme of off-road racers, featu...

This console generation has had no shortage of off-road racing games, from some that were terribly fun to others that were just terrible. While not completely bankrupt of merit, MX vs. ATV Untamed certainly edged closer to the latter end of this spectrum, especially compared to the likes of Motors...
