Thursday Night Throwdown 12/09: Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

Posted by Ryan (1263 posts) -

It's time for another edition of TNT, and this week the rubber meets the road with Criterion's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. If you want to get in on the action, you can send us a friend request at GBTNT on either system, though spaces are filling up fast! If you get on the list, be sure to have the game up and running between 4PM and 6PM Pacific Standard Time, tonight! For those who would prefer to just spectate, you can head to our chat page and watch the action from there! We'll be taking your questions from the chat, and giving away two copies of the Xbox 360 and two copies of the PlayStation 3 versions of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. 
 
Until then, enjoy one of the greatest Need for Speed moments of all time.

That was some unnecessary split-screen.

It's been a long time since I've had the chance to jump into a TNT. Here's hoping it goes well this week!

NOSTALGIA OVERLOAD.
 
Fucking Most Wanted is great. Wasted so many hours on it with my friends when I was 12 or something. Shit was so great, still is.

Meh, I still think Carbon was the better NFS fake CG people game.  Most Wanted looked like ass and had far less car customization options, and the ridiculousness of gangs racing cars for turf was much more absurd than a dude calling you up and taunting you.

Currently online is down, at least on the 360 version of Hot Pursuit.

Excellent intro!

I'll be tuning in. 
Can't wait for Happy Hour, either.

FIVE GRAND.

#20 Edited by phrosnite (3518 posts) -

I can't understand why people like Most Wanted so much. It's a super easy racing game with no variety of tracks nor day-night cycle. I was so bored I never finished it.

Woohoo - I'm in for tonight!
 
Also, awesome video.

Yeah, because that's really what the GB staff is interested in. Hot Pursuit is also a lot more interesting to watch.
