LINK

for those not in the know, slightly mad studios is connected with simbin/blimey, creators of the racing sims GTR/GTL/Race. This game uses that physics engine apparently :talon2: Tone that physics engine down a little bit, add some close combat need for speed style racing, and you have yourself a real need for speed game Very Happy
Need for Speed: Playable again?!?! Nfs_shift413_screen
plus the sim bin ferrari game is complete, they are just waiting for approval from ferrari :saynomore:

Need for Speed: Playable again?!?! Ferrari_006




Both games are PC/PS3/Xbox360

Plus they are making a new arcade style game for Wii that actually sounds pretty neat, sounds more like the hot persuit series

I had seen shots of that, and I'd thought man that looks a hell of a lot like that "Race" game that's hitting the Xbox soon. Now I know why.

Yes, that would be why. I've played race 07 for PC, pretty good game, its more "entry level" sim than GTR though.

8-9 minutes is forever when you're running the 'Ring.
Just for shits and giggles i tried doing an unmodified Triumph on that course in GT4 just to see the lap time. I pretty much did the same thing. five minutes in, and I hadn't even hit the Karrussel. :jay:

They need to revise some of the old NFS games. Hot Pursuit and High Stakes mainly, those two were the best NFS games IMO.

Those graphics that dodge posted while blasting through the hills getting chased by some cop cars and a helicopter, fuck yeah.

Before I stopped buying EA games, I had a blast with some of those NFS games from NFS3: Hot Pursuit onward. NFS HP2 on the PS2 was fantastic. It absolutely sucked on the XBox due to different developers, but on the PS2, it was some of the most fun arcade-style driving you could get at the time.

I think my all time favorite was NFS: High Stakes. It definitely took it to the next level with pink slip racing.

I have that for the PC. But by the time I had enough computer to run it properly, the graphics had become hella-dated.

I just really enjoyed the imaginary tracks that they came up with as well. All the street racing in Underground got boring.

They did come up with some great tracks. Very detailed and well-put-together.

I really did enjoy the Porsche one, it's probably 3rd on my list behind High Stakes and Hot Pursuit.

Same here, I hardly played any of it.

Things have moved on a lot from the days of GT1-3. Hundreds of cars and fairly crappy handling isn't going to cut it anymore.

eh? I liked GT4 better than GT3.
...or maybe I liked that fact that I didn't have to do the 24H of Lemans/Nurburgring by myself. I always lose my rhythm after I've paused, then taken a break/slept/gone to work/whatever and then come back to it.

Dude the police chases in Carbon were too easy. the Most Wanted chases were more involving, and you actually had little quotas to meet. I could have those Corvettes chasing me for forty minutes or so. so fun.
