New Need for Speed game coming out

EA Games Need for Speed : Pro Street Page

It's called ProStreet. It kinda reminds me of Gumball rally-ish with their new racing style. They call it a speed challenge, but isn't that what the Gumball rally is anyway? Getting from one place to another first? I know there isn't much competition anymore and everyone is having fun with it, but whatever.

Graphics look amazing.

Porsche Unleased was the greatest NFS game of all time. Nate's right, it's been all downhill since they went all ricer on us.

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

i love the new NFS games. the old games were just eh, i dont care about exotics because i will never have one, so i have no want to play them in a game. I like the new NFS style games because, while severly exaggerated, theyre fun as hell. if i want to play a driving sim, ill play Forza or Gran Turismo.

I liked the need for speed games because of the exotics. It was a fun *** game driving cars I would never own.

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

I liked em all, the more the cars the better. I don't care if they are made, if they are in the game I'll drive em for the hell of it to see how it goes. The NFS games I loved the most was Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted. That **** was fun Especially on 2 player.

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

i really like NFS most wanted... carbon was a bit boring, and most of them before most wanted were pretty fun. I dont care if its ricers, cause at least theyre nice cars... rx-7s, supras, etc... they're still fun. Plus they throw in the porsche's, lambos, vette, stang, etc, and it makes for a pretty well rounded game. I might rent this one before i buy it so it doesnt disappoint me like carbon did... but it looks fun

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

Underground II probably had the best all around game play IMO...

Carbon was alright, except i beat the game in like 3 days, kinda disappointing...

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

I had Hot pursuit and hated it. The controls were "weird" and the graphics sucked. Plus, I too dont care about driving exotics in a video game because it's not like it's an accurate simulation anyway. The Underground's were a lot of fun in spite of the ricer crap just because the speed and handling were so outrageous it was entertaining. Carbon kinda sorta cooled down on the ricer thing but they still have a bit to go.

i played it on the school computers back in the day, i think junior or senior year. wasnt impressed, though at that time Gran Turismo 2 was pretty much the standard, and arcade style gameplay was kinda blah.

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

I never played the Porsche NFS, those cars don't appeal to me at all. Even if some guy comes up next to me with Turbo 911 Insurgency Type R I don't give a flip.

I'll tell you what I DROOLED over today though, we caught a Ford GT in the parking lot where my bank is. I think the guy just bought it recently because he was tapping the accelerator and the back wheels were spinning a bit trying to get grip.

That will be my car gentlemen. You will ****ing see. And I will be gunning it down the highway shooting my Garand at German Nazi cars.

Next time we all get together at the house, I'll throw it on your machine. It is my favorite NFS game of all time.

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

are you using a keyboard?

if so, you can modify a old Xbox controller to work, by rewiring an adapter cable that ties into USB and downloading the proper drivers (i used this for NFS:Carbon and Halo2 on the PC). Or you can pick up a 360 controller and its plug and play on Vista, i might just go that route.

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

Yeah, I've used a keyboard for all my NFS games. I kinda prefer it in a way because I know where everything is. The only thing I don't like about the keyboard function is, when I play the NFS games that are on my Playstation I have all the cars on manual. But for some reason I don't function well with a keyboard to use the manual shifting options and have to do auto a lot of the time.

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

When I play driving games on the PC I use my joystick for steering, W for the accelerator, S for the brakes, A for downshift, and D for upshift. It seems to work really well for me. It's kindof like FPS controls except your right hand is on the joystick rather than the mouse.

Re: New Need for Speed game coming out

I dont like playing driving games on the PC...perfer it on the Playstation.

I like Carbon. Yeah it is still ricerish...but not as bad. The one thing I have always like about the NFS series..especially Underground and up, is that it gave you a sense of speed....some of the car games will say you are doing 160 MPH...and it feels like you are doing 20 MPH behind some gray hair and knuckles.

i still prefer NFS:U2. it had a 05 GT as well, and you could tune the car a bit better than the ricer/arcade-ish style of tuning in NFS:C and NFS:MW. In NFS:U2 you could adjust the gear ratios, which was a giant plus for me, if you ran a tight race you could make them shorter to give you more accel, or if it was a long race, you could make them longer to give you more top end speed. i dont like the simple bar where one side means accel and one side means speed, i liked being able to mess with each gear as well as the final gear ratio.

Funny you bring that up.. I just found the cd for my PC the other day.. I might give it a go again... That game was the GT before GT knew what it was.... You could adjust ride height, tire pressure, suspension bound/rebound, camber, and a few others I believe...... It had a really nice physics engine that was underappreciated.
