Back in the early 2000’s there were two main forces when it came to Stock Car Auto Racing video games, Papyrus’ NASCAR Racing series and EA’s yearly NASCAR titles. Monster Games lit a fire in the genre with NASCAR Heat and cemented itself as a name to be reckoned with. I remember the original titles leaning more “arcadey” than the semi-sim of EA’s titles and the full-sim of Papyrus’, giving those who just wanted fast cars and lots of passing something they could easily sit down and play. Now Monster Games have returned with Dusenberry Martin Racing to reignite that spark with NASCAR Heat: Evolution.

I’ve heard the praises of V-MODA headsets, but never anything I went out of my way to learn about, and I’ve been missing out. The clarity and absolute sound quality that the V-MODA Crossfade M-100 delivers is unreal, it’s like I’ve begun hearing for the first time after putting them on. It quickly begins to make sense why it is the #1 rated brand on Amazon in the U.S.
