There's a strange look of embarrassment spreading across lead designer Ralph Fulton's face. It stands out from his otherwise giddy and enthusiastic presentation. "So, when you complete a race category you unlock a one-on-one race against, ah, Ravenwest Motors," he says. "They're the sort of bad guys in the game. These races are like boss fights."
He had nothing to look shifty about. This was just confirmation that GRID is going to continue the cheesy rivalries of ToCA: Race Driver, and it was the plot that made that game stand out in the first place. If the team want something to be embarrassed about, PC Gamer nominates their dropping of the ToCA name for a subtitle that sounds kind of edgy but means absolutely nothing.
