EA has thrown down the gauntlet to rival mega publisher Activision, describing Bizarre's upcoming racer Blur as "completely underwhelming"
Haha Blur is a joke
Blur footage from E3 was a complete joke.Real life cars with mario kart power-ups lol.Split/Second looks 10 times better.
I thought it looked kind of cool >_>
There are more wild and ambitious racers, sure, but it looks solid enough. You know, games can be good in numbers greater than one. I don't get you people.
Blur is a joke compared to the PGR series....Bizarre should be ashamed of them selfs
don't worry, they will get the picture when it comes out and has to stand toe to toe with shift and Forza 3. its a shame PGR was my favorite racing franchise a while back, but it felt like it was starting to go downhill with pgr4. but ya, all that power up crap has put me off this game. i would rather give shift a try, even though i have never owned a NFS title before.
But when the 3rd one came out it started to get bad. Then the 4th one was just garbage. They started to feel like arcade racing games.
I enjoyed PGR3, PGR4 wasn't so good though :( i'm not too bothered as i actually won my copy in a PGR tournament :D
PGR 2 was the best, 3 was ok but not as good as 2. I still had logs of fun playing it but it had issues. PGR 4 felt unfinished and after everything that has happened since then i think it has become clear that pgr4 was literally Unfinished ( maybe it would have turned out better, but who knows.
Hasn't PGR always been arcade-ish?
yeh i was thinking that lol it's kinda a mix tbh. it's more sim than say burnout, but it's not half as hard to get into, can drift fairly easily etc
"He also had some choice words for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 exclusive Forza 3, saying it was “clear” that Need for Speed: Shift was better than Turn 10’s upcoming racer." "Blur to me is completely underwhelming. I don’t understand what’s up with that game to be honest." First, it was "360 is maxed out, now its forza 3 is No competition against NFS:shift and activisions blur, what kind of crap are they making comments?! Lol! funny how EA dares not to take any jabs at sony's GT???
^^^Well GT IS widely considered the eminent console racer. If you want to topple it you come prepared with more than talk. Kinda hate when devs resort to this though. There is room for more than one good racer.
don't forget NFS pro-street and undercover were a joke also......nfs shift better than forza..LOL
NFS shift looks amazing.
I hope NFS Shift is amazing. I already have confidence that Forza 3 will be, so I'd love to have two great racing games to play later this year.
This game looks like a crappy racing game. The new Need for speed game looks insane.
So MS now bring PGR5 by a different team that pwns this shiat and they'll learn. Forza 3 kicks them in the ars already and NFS Shift seems to be up with the good games this year also. Blur is your punishment...
Burnout > Every other arcade racer.
Hey EA shouldn't talk smack. They should just let their games do the talking. Gosh, I hate when developers can't keep their mouths shut. It's so annoying. EA are going to fall so flat on their face this fall when their game finally releases. All they do is rush out products every year, they have no room to talk. Gosh i'm so PISSED.
seems everyone is at it atm :(
When I read this "He also had some choice words for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 exclusive Forza 3, saying it was “clear” that Need for Speed: Shift was better than Turn 10’s upcoming racer.".Proof that your comment is 100% correct. Yeah a company with its first try at a simulation game will beat a company far more experienced in simulation...
They where just giving turn 10 a taste of there own medicine. With all the showboating they were doing with Forza 3. They deserve it. They where basically telling everyone Forza 3 is the 2nd coming. Yet its not. Need for speed Shift looks amazing. I thought it looked better then Forza 3. Turn 10 needs to tone it down a little with the showboating. Or else there going to lose all respect in the gaming industry.
Next up, GT team saying their racer is better then mario cart. Since when did racers really become such a hot flame war? isn't it, you like racers, so you get as many as you can. o.o
Wow another dev knocking another dev. What's next fights in the streets between them./s. Be happy with your game, and advertise it.
wait till turn10 hears this and get their very own Big Gobb to smake talk them back to the 18th century ! this will be fun ( ducks for cover ) can you imagine this guy along with the guy from turn 10 having a debate... then you would have they guy from PD sitting in the middle ( i can just picture him smiling away while the other two are shouting at the top of their voices " we have the best racer! NO, yours is crap, ours is the best " lol
Greenwalt is that you?
sad thing is, he is not the only one to say that. All the previews from gaming sites seemed disappointed.
Hmm, I don't like this trash-talk stuff but Blur really did look bad. It felt like a rip-off of Midnight Club 3 DUB. That game had a multiplayer / arcade mode that was exactly like Blur, had the same power ups too.
"He also had some choice words for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 exclusive Forza 3, saying it was “clear” that Need for Speed: Shift was better than Turn 10’s upcoming racer." This is getting interesting. Waiting for Turn 10's response.
Who knew that racing games would be so hot this year, that everyone disses competition constantly. I mean, it's something everyday.
oi! Leave Blur alone. I'm looking forward to that game. It feels like Mario Kart in mature and realistic way. Although all they need to do is add more power options:/ 4 power ups isn't definitely ENOUGH! But the best racer to come is Split/Cum/Second:P
