Sad memories...the music at 2:48 is the same music played during the credits of On the Spot when Rich Gallup left...

I am intrigued about this game.

Jesse stand your lazy ass up.
This looks cool. I hope it brings people back to Need for Speed since the last set of cruddy games.

Colour me excited. Great interview.

Five grand, FIVE GRAND that this game is actually good.But we'll just have to see.

Excellent interview Brad. Thanks. Will be picking this up for sure.
Looks good, but he was a bit of a wierdo :S
The game looks very nice, but I get the impression that Jesse is a bit of a douche - probably because he kinda insulted a game franchise that is of a much higher quality compared to anything from the NFS series over the last few years.
No narrative....I'm disappointed. I purchased Midnight Club: LA b/c of NFS's lackluster performance this year. Looks like I'll miss another NFS title. The sad part is that the game actually looks great.

So what you're telling me is you're gonna make me feel like I'm gonna hit a wall at 200 MPH? Games can totally do that these days! IMMERSION, BABY!Seriously though, it looks kinda neat. I've never been a big fan, but after the last Need For Speed game these guys could do with coming back with something a bit more solid.
Why did this guy remind me of MC Chris?
@Death_Burnout: You're on your own there, man! I'm quite the fan of MC Chris but this guy doesn't remind me of him at all, although I can see where you're coming from maybes with similarities in the face region. MC Pee Pants, Little Brittle and Sir Loin remind me more of MC Chris though... for good reason. =D

man that guy talks a lot. guess that's the purpose of an interview though.

That bed looked real comfy.
man, that guy could talk about NFS:shift in his sleep, and almost does.

Why are men talking about cockpit on bed...??? Sheesh...
Shift is going up on my "look out for this game" list!
User Lists: 64
OK, this is great. This is what I've always wanted in a racing sim, the idea that there's a human being in the car instead of it feeling like the car is driving itself.

Wow, that cockpit view does indeed look pretty amazing; I had heard some of the buzz about it, but I think this is the first time I've actually seen any video. My interest in this game increased quite a bit, and I'm not a big racing game fan.Also, more interviews should be conducted in bed, though I kinda half-think that Brad interrupted that guys nap time.
That guy knows his stuff and knows it well. Someone from higher up, give this man a pay raise!
Whats a "semi-professional race car driver"?
Wow this looks impressive. I love racing games; I'll have to rent this, if not buy.

Gran Turismo on the extreme end? Just because it's slightly more realistic than Ridge Racer doesn't mean it's realistic. For me Gran Turismo is in the middle. I can't understand how some people even call GRiD realistic.
looks pretty dope actually, I'll just have to forget it's a NFS game, and take it as a racing game.
I like PGR, and this looks like PGR.
This game looks really good.
A racing sim that has FUN?? Where the hell is the dirt? The jumps? Give me an off road sim, and then I'll believe its FUN.
Why would they have a guy from Blackbox doing promo for a game being dev'd in Europe? Black box has shown that they are really good at mediocrity. This guy must be one of the few higher ups that kept his job.
Looks cool, but it's also going to be on the 360, meaning it's impossible for it to top Gran Turismo 5 when it comes to content and detail.
What is the song that comes up at 3 minutes? It's great.edit: I'm optimistic for this game, I just hope there is enough content within for my liking.
Man, even laying down Brad kicks the air's ass...epic
Great interview, kinda looking forward to it.Also Audio Mix on the video is perfect, try to keep the music at those levels from now on. It's now overbearing on the interview.
Almost looks okay. Certainly better than the last NFS game. Will be interesting to check it out closer to release.
not trying to talk this down but... separate driver head movements... visitable hands and feet movements... camera and etc... these stuff's been around for awhile.. even in GTR2... which is from a bit more than 4 yrears agoso in a way.. arn't they supposed to be expected in games in our current gen? anyhow... I hope this former Blimey! team (now Slightly Mad Studio) will do good tho... considering the fact that ever since these guys parted with SimBin... i haven't been impressed by SimBin's Race '07 series as much as i did by GTR2.
Understand the physiology of hitting a wall at 200mph...I got a pretty good understanding of how dead you'd be.
I think I'll stick with GRID, I think GRID got it almost perfect.I do agree with him about Gran Turismo though, looks great but as little fun factor within it.
I've been waiting for any game that made it feel like you were actually a driver in the car. It looks like this one delivers, and it looks friggin' amazing to boot.
sounds like you're trying to make Race Driver Grid.
Shift....shit...shift??! what.... omg cool anyways
This game looks pretty great and I think that you guys should conduct more interviews in bed. Also, I thought that they said that NFS was going to be put on hold for a while after the last one didn't do that well.
Pretty soon, every developer will be jumping into bed with Brad.
this looks really good. May be the first NfS i get since underground.
i've always hated need for speed but this game looks sweet.
karate chop the hell out of that bed!

I think I might be sold. Possibly my first Need for Speed purchase since Most Wanted.
Awww, come on. I want Most Wanted 2, not this. I can get "this" from any of the other racing games. What made NFS special was the setting, the campy narrative and the cop chases. This has none of that. :\
