TGH Writes: "Yesterday the lid was blown off of EA’s next installment of the Need For Speed franchise subtitled The Run. Today we have some more news, including an official US release date and an official website. Are you ready for The Run?"
Great stuff dude, the game looks great.
Going to cool to see what they can do with Frostbite 2 with this game.
This is hot!
I am now officially confused on what to buy this November.
Another NFS game? Damn.
This one is going to be story based so lets hope its good.
the last story based NFS was undercover and it was crap ... do not get your hopes high ..
Good lord EA, that's 3 NFS games in a year's time. Why hasn't this one been called milked yet?
There were only one this year, that one was Shift 2: Unleashed. Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit came out November last year. I'm sure this has got the milked title, but won't hold value since the two they release a year or two different games, while on the other hand COD is the same point and shoot this person type of game, with a lack luster story that sales based on the name and the multiplayer, which is not a bad thing.
Last I checked, November 2010 - November 2011 is a year's time. That's 3 games, 1 year. Even two in the same year is overkill, this is just ridiculous. They may play differently in the sense of one being a track racer as opposed to being an escape the police simulator, but the gameplay fundamentals are the same. Why the hell did you bring up Call of Duty anyway? I never said anything about it. If you want to know why I used the phrase "milked" as I did, that was in response to people claiming Mario or Zelda are milked franchises.
@Cheeseknight28 He brought up Call of Duty because that is one of the most milked franchises ever to grace consoles.
I brought up COD as an example to what most people consider milked (Didn't mean for it to come up as an insult, if it did, sorry). I agree that Mario is milked, but really Zelda, we see more Mario games than Zelda in a given year across all of Nintendo Platforms. Hell 3 new Mario games in August just for the 3DS. On the sense of the year November 2010 to November 2011 of this year, I see what you mean by a years time. I was going by the the start of the 2011 year (January) to the ending of the 2011 year (December). Sorry for my confusion
It's fine. I just didn't understand that you automatically assumed I was comparing it to Call of Duty, as that's a horse that doesn't need to beat any more. We all know that it's milked to death, it's only a matter of time before it's the next Tony Hawk or Guitar Hero. I don't agree with you on Mario, but I'm a self-admitted Nintendo fanboy so I suppose I'm biased.
Please kill this franchise. It's dead in the water.
Don't know - the trailer seemed very promising.
Damn it's coming out in a busy window.
Since it's using the Frostbite 2 engine, it should stand out on it's own, Remember NFS: Hot Pursuit was release on the 16th of November last year and that game did pretty well and that was released against COD: BO and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.
Yeah but this, Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City are all releasing around the same time, and no doubt another Call of Duty will be released in November too. November is always a busy time for game releases because of Christmas.
i hope NFS goes back to the good old way like Most wanted Carban i enjoyed this ones the most it was good to be out side like on the streets instead of being underground i hope thes one is like these two
Underground 2 was awesome. Judging by how this seems to have a storyline, it will probably be similar to Most Wanted with a story like: You did some shit, you shouldn't have done it, some other dude did most of it and your getting chased... hot girl tries to help you...
i hope so thats what i thought when i saw the trailer to i hope its as good as those NFS thos where alot of fun to me enjoyed them alot i hope EA can make those good didnt like the last one they made
News just in EA to do NFS one after another.
I want the drag races to come back and the vast customization that was in the previous NFS games. Carbon had a great customization feature, but Most Wanted had the best open world. My heart is still with the Underground series.
This is not even News anymore... we got used to NFS games
This Is Worse Milking Than CoD, 3 Games In A Year
i seriously hope The Run is not open-world like underground 2 and carbon. DAMN!! have not bought NFS game since hotpursuit 2 .... had high hopes for criterion hot pursuit but only felt burnout instead of NFS and was not 2 player offline game SHIT!!!!
