You kids today love your rock ‘n roll and your fast cars and
whatnot, so EA has brought that together in one place with this new trailer for
the upcoming Need for Speed sequel. Need for Speed The Run gameplay is backed
by the Black Keys new single ”Lonely Boy” in this video we received from EA
today, and they’re a nice match. You’ll see more footage of the game’s controversial
on-foot sequences than you’ve seen in a while.
The demo for Need for
Speed: The Run launched this week, but if your interest in the title extends as
far as “wanting to know how it looks and sounds” without going so far as to
wonder how it feels to actually play the game, this is exactly the video you
have been looking for. The PS3-based clip previews the game's California-Nevada
Desert Race segment, and offers a decent, though far from impossible,
performance to beat while you wait for the full release...
Christina Hendricks appearing in
live action is unforgettable whether it’s as part of Mad Men’s stellar cast or
via Google image search results
, so seeing a digital representation of her should be only be about 25 percent less
striking by our estimation. Today EA revealed that its upcoming entry in the Need
for Speed franchise, Need for Speed: The Run, features the stunning actress
playing what seems to be the lead’s love interest. Oh, and a guy named Sean
Farris from Vampire Diaries plays that lead whom she’ll be interested in...
Electronics Arts has announced a partnership with Adidas to produce a limited
edition run of exclusive Need for Speed: The Run branded Superstar shoes.
Billed by EA as “iconic,” the adidas shoes will also appear on the feet of
NFSTR’s protagonist Jack Rourke in the upcoming story-driven racer…
Dead Space's Isaac Clarke is taking a
breather from dismembering necromorphs to dominate the court in EA Sports' NBA
Jam: On Fire Edition. In another strange bit of cross-promotion, EA this week
revealed the armor-clad engineer is a playable character in the downloadable
basketball title, which launched today on PSN, and is expected to land tomorrow
for Xbox Live...
The new trailer for Need for Speed: The Run focuses on two of its cast's more
notable assets. The clip highlights the presence of Sports Illustrated models
Chrissy Teigen and Irina Shayk within the title. Besides lending their voices
to the cast, Teigen and Shayk appear in-game as BFFs competing against your
character. There's rather a lot of seemingly-unrelated footage of the pair's
day-jobs before the clip gets round to showing them in the game, but that's
just how trailers are nowadays. Go figure...
It’s starting to look like this whole “free-to-play”
thing might be sticking around. EA has announced a deal with Aeria Games,
publisher of Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine and WolfTeam, to bring EA’s selection
of free-to-play games to their network. It’s going to start with Battlefield
Heroes and continue with Need for Speed World, bringing EA’s Play4Free games to
an even wider audience...
It takes a pretty talented driver to outrace someone in a high-powered sports car on a snow covered mountain road, but it takes a different kind of driver to try and outrace 10 tons of falling snow. To be fair though, watching a bright orange BMW M3 GTS and an Audi R8 slam into barriers and each other as they drift through sleet and ice is pretty exciting. Though if I’d plunked the cash down for one of these in real life, I’d probably just carefully cruise around at 35 mph, terrified of scratches and speeding tickets.
The NPD Group has released its US video game retail tallies for July, revealing good news for Microsoft and football fans, but depressing news for the industry overall. According to the firm's monthly sales figures, the Xbox 360 held its spot as the top selling console for the seventh month in a row, while NCAA Football 12 topped out July's bestseller list. The bad news? NPD reported total industry sales were down 26% year-over-year, representing the lowest month for gaming in years...
Earlier this year, Atari revealed plans to sell off MMO maker Cryptic Studios, developers of Star Trek Online, Champions Online, and the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG, Neverwinter. Now, after several months of paper signing, haggling, and grinding, the buyer, Chinese developer Perfect World International, has closed the deal. Cryptic was sold for $49.8 million, $30 million of which will go towards paying off Atari’s debts to BlueBay Credit, with the remaining being spent investing on the publisher’s latest focus: social and mobile games...
