GlobalVR has added content to their NASCAR Team Racing game once again, adding the popular Roush Fenway Racing team to the roster of drivers. If you are not familiar with them(as I wasn’t), they are a pretty big deal in the NASCAR world and you can visit their website here. While no game tweaks have been made in the update, the addition of four Roush drivers from that team is one way GVR seems to be using to keep NASCAR fans continually interested in the game.
I haven’t been keeping track but NASCAR seems to be one of the most frequently updated arcade titles in recent memory as they constantly add new cars and drivers. I can think of a couple of other games I’d love to see receive some content updates to give the game more to explore. As for GVR, I am wondering what their next game might be, so far the new content they delivered this year was shown at Amusement Expo and that has been it so far. IAAPA is right around the corner though and there is usually something new to talk about there, especially since AMOA is no longer around in September. It would be great if they can have NTR online at IAAPA, I haven’t had a chance to play that “in the wild” so to speak and try out the online mode against another human player(s) and I’m still curious to see how that plays.
