Need for Speed Unbound is the first great NFS game in years - Polygon

For such a venerable name in racing video games (Aaron Paul starred in a 2014 movie about this franchise, remember?), Need for Speed really hit the skids over the past half-decade. Unbound is a relief as much as a delight — it shows there still is a lot of fun to be had in the open-world racer format, if a studio is willing to think about some of the smaller things differently, rather than try to revolutionize the whole shebang.

Better than Heat? Honest question, because I've almost picked up Heat several times but never pulled the trigger. It has to really be good for me to give my money to EA again.

The easy solution is to sub to ea for 1 month then play the 10 hour trial.
I pay $5 Canadian for EA sub.

Oh , and if you do that, make sure you cancel right away because it automatically re-subscribes the next month

Finally, Resistance: Retribution 🔥

It's an alright month overall. I think Sony should try to more consistently get some high quality indies Day 1 in the service, e.g. Ultros would have been good. Those have usually been some of the better months, e.g. Stray, Sea Of Stars, Tchia.

Shame that for this version of Outer Worlds, you can't import your save. 😔 Truly Spacer's Choice

darthv7210d ago

retribution was a cool game. It's the only one that allowed you to link a DS3 controller using Resistance 2 to play it (as far as i know). It was an interesting experiment that didnt offer 2nd analog support though but Im betting this version does.

Eonjay10d ago

Good point. One assumes that is the reason for the delay on releasing it.

DeusFever10d ago

Joke’s on Outer Worlds Spacers Choice. I quit after the first planet in Outer Worlds.

Glad I didn't buy NFS rebound. I expected this to be on PS Plus.

Unbound lol. N I got it for 15 physical, 🤷🏽. I'll take it. Jus got extra this year for $80, which is a great deal. If I can pay $80 on sale every year I'd stick with Extra. I don't mind buying a game but then it shows up here cause then I can download it to have it digitally but still have MY copy. Once they take it off I can still play it.

Eonjay10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

You can say what you want about day one purchases but besides that Plus really blows GamePass out of the water.

NFS, Outer Worlds and 4 different Tales of Games... and Retribution. And you throw the monthly games on top of that... its no competition.

BTW... how is it that no one realized that Microsoft could just put its games on Plus. No one seems to realize that Microsoft and Sony are now working to enrich each other. (Console ware is over)

darthv7210d ago

Sadly, Retribution is only for premium users... not us extra folk. I do have the original UMD, but it would be nice to get it digitally like i did with killzone liberation and stardust. Both of which i already owned digitally on my Go/Vita and it was cool when those were made available for the PS5 as then i could dl them.

Eonjay10d ago

This is one UMD I never had but thats really awesome you still have an original.

DeusFever10d ago

How can Game Pass be the best deal on gaming when it is more expensive than PS+?

badboyz0910d ago

Plus you need a platform to.

Petebloodyonion10d ago

Gamepass PC is way cheaper to PS+ and even way cheaper if you use MS rewards points

Redgrave10d ago

Is that Jet Moto 2, under Resistance? As of writing, it's just an image and no text.

Redgrave10d ago

It's been fixed, and yes it is

Toecutter0010d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Why is the Killzone series still M.I.A? I still love playing splitscreen co-op of KZ3.

MrBaskerville9d ago

They did release the psp top down shooter a while back. So it's not completely forgotten.
