NFS is done
NFS is done
wow. i personally think this game is going to end up just like pro street. they should stick to street racing. Most Wanted was there best game (personal opinion) and i think that they should improve on it. carbon was really corny, so was prostreet and undercover. this game is going to be like forza i think. hopefully its worth buying.
So, what is so good about Road Rash?
Well, I would like it if NFS could get another honest chance...but again, I think it's far gone after the last three games alone. They need to just kill the franchise and work on Road Rash.
As Giant Bomb's resident Burnout Paradise enthusiast, I would be remiss not to discuss my thoughts on the new twist on EA's Need for Speed homelessness drama. This update to Joystiq's story cropped up this morning:
"Update: We've received a tip from someone a purported EA employ who wishes to remain anonymous. According to this source, the Need for Speed series isn't shutting down -- but EA Black Box, the development team behind recent entries into the series, "most likely" is. The source explains that EA not only scrapped their plans to open up a new studio in Vancouver, but that they also decided to close Black Box, moving the NFS and Skate teams to their much larger Burnaby studios.
The source further details the fate of Need for Speed -- he claims that one of the next entries into the series will be developed by the EA-owned Criterion Games, and will likely use the engine of their racing series, Burnout. He also claims that there are three different teams within Black Box that are responsible for developing Need for Speed titles (which is how they're able to release a new NFS title every year) -- though these three teams will likely consolidate into one, leading to less NFS releases, more continuity between said releases, and, ultimately, drastic downsizing for the NFS teams."
