You know how it feels to try a food you've never really had before? That nervous excitement? Thats how I felt going into Need For Speed: Most Wanted. Outside of kart racers, I've never been a racing game guy. I don't know cars, or parts, or strategies. But this game won our Patreon Poll, and I'm a man of my word. So I fired it up, and it was really damned fun!
I loved the lack of technical car specs, not having to fix my ride after each race, and I LOVED the cheesy cutscenes. Seriously, the forage is off the charts in this game. I don't think I'll become a racing game guy after this, but I had a really good time. At least, until I got stuck near the end of the game and realized how much I suck at these games.
My buddy Joe makes his return to the show this week, and as a much bigger car/racing game fan than I am, he was the perfect guest to bounce game gossip off of. We had a great chat about what makes this game so fun, and why everyone out there that feels like I do about driving games should give this one a shot.
And before we talk about Razor and his cheesiness, it's another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!
This week, we talk about the dope-ass community we've built around here. Who's the greatest tag team in WWE/WWF history? And what do I think of the PSP?
PLUS, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', featuring three racers: Gran Turismo 3, Burnout 3 and Midnight Club 3.
