The Brothers and Girls Ride Out for a High-Stakes Poker Game
By Gearhead with help from Bandit
The story starts with Bandit telling me about a big card game in the Badlands of South Dakota. We were drinking one night down the street from the Cantina getting about half lit. He drank Jack on the rocks, and I was drinking Beam. The only thing left was to break open a bottle of Old Grand Dad and we would have a song.
He mentioned making a run to Deadwood for this big poker tournament. It was by invite only and he had one. I asked him about the tournament, while the music on the jukebox in the background was, “I drink alone,” by Lonesome George. He told me you need references and a wad of cash that could choke an elephant –a big fuckin’ bank roll.
Two things my Uncle Geno told me was: family first and never cross a 1%er. I would back Bandit.

RiMS Racing is one of the most anticipated game releases of the year for moto racing fans, especially as Nacon and RaceWard Studio have promised to accurately reproduce the fastest bikes out there in this new title.
So in theory, RiMS Racing is supposed to feel stunningly real from one end to another, and based on a new video published by the two companies, it looks like this is very likely to happen.
Nacon has published gaming footage recorded on the Suzuka circuit in Japan, allowing us to see how the 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR behaves on the track. And at the same time, the video also reveals other tidbits about the game, including the customization screen where you can change nearly every little detail about the motorcycle you’re about to hop on for the next race.
And last but not least, Nacon has also shared the list of eight motorcycles that will be available in the game: the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10 RR, Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory, BMW M 1000 RR, Ducati Panigale V4 R, Honda CBR1000RR ABS, MV Agusta F4 RC, Suzuki GSX-R1000R and the Yamaha YZF-R1.
As we said earlier, every single model comes with insane realism, and you can figure this out by simply checking out the video we embedded below. It’s pretty clear Nacon and RaceWard struggled to make the whole experience feel as real as possible, and you can almost feel the feedback the Kawasaki gives by simply looking at the video.
RiMS Racing will include over 70 events, and Nacon says it’ll roll out lots of multiplayer challenges after the game finally becomes available this summer.
And speaking of launch date, RiMS Racing is projected to see the daylight on August 19 on pretty much every gaming platform out there, including not only PC, but also consoles. The game will be available on both current and next-gen consoles, as well as on the Nintendo Switch.
RiMS sounds like a really exciting project for all fans of motorcycling sports, boasting a new addition to the simulation genre. RaceWard and Nacon partnering together to deliver a brand new Bike Racing Sim coming out on all gaming platforms this summer.
NACON and RaceWard Studio are pleased to unveil a new video for RiMS Racing, a motorcycling video game with a unique concept of combining mechanics and riding. Because the race is not won purely on the track! NACON who has become a key player in racing games publishing over the last few years will make one more announcement in the upcoming days.
By making mechanics a central part of the game, RiMS Racing provides a unique simulation experience requiring players to combine both engineering and riding skills. Using an innovative mechanics management system, you can optimize every part of your motorbike down to the smallest component. With RiMS Racing, the Italian studio RaceWard sets a new standard for realism and customization options.
Over 500 official spare parts available and more than 200 official items of equipment for the rider are perfectly recreated in the game and realistically simulated even down to how each can wear down, Just like a real rider, you can analyze the status of your motorbike in real time to perfect your set-up. From brake disc temperature and tyre pressure to suspension behaviour and electronics, the ultra-realistic and precise physics of RiMS Racing recreates every hazard of the race.
You start your adventure by choosing a motorbike from eight of the most powerful European and Japanese models, recreated with unparalleled accuracy thanks to tight collaboration with each manufacturer. The video features the MV Agusta F4 RC and its precision mechanics. This four-cylinder bike with over 200 horsepower is MV Agusta’s flagship model and is fitted with an Ohlins TTX 36 shock absorber, Brembo radial braking system and fairing made primarily of carbon. All these components are reproduced in the finest detail in RiMS Racing.
Another iconic motorcycle that players will love riding is the Ducati Panigale V4 R. With this masterpiece from Ducati, the Italian manufacturer of sport-inspired motorcycles characterized by high-performance engines, innovative design and cutting-edge technology, every detail has been designed specifically for racing: aerodynamics, the chassis, performance, even the mesmerizing sound of its engine.
Silverstone, Laguna Seca, Suzuka, Nürburgring, Paul Ricard… Travel the world and enjoy thrilling races on 10 faithfully recreated official circuits. For those who prefer roads, five routes in the stunning landscapes of the United States, Norway, Australia, Spain and Italy have been recreated for a different racing experience on two wheels!
RiMS Racing will be available on August 19, 2021 on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
A Nintendo Switch™ version of the game will be released at a later date.
