Recent posts: Need For Speed Most Wanted
It’s October 30, 2012 and you know what that means? Tons of new games! Here we have Criterion’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted. As a fan of the Burnout series, I knew I had to have this when I heard that it was essentially Burnout Paradise 2 with licensed cars. The good thing is it lives up to those expectations…for the most part. Check us out after the jump for the first 16 minutes of Need for Speed: Most Wanted as well as my first impressions. (more…)
The newest Need for Speed: Most Wanted is coming to the PS3, Vita, Xbox 360, and PC next week, but Wii U owners will have to wait a little bit longer for their version, Polygon reports. In a Nintendo financial document, Most Wanted was found among other third-party titles.
“”We are very excited to deliver Need for Speed: Most Wanted on more platforms and to more gamers,” a representative for EA said. “Starting Oct. 30, Most Wanted will be available on X360, PS3, PS Vita, Android and iOS. Then in 2013, Nintendo fans will be able to experience what it means to be Most Wanted amongst their friends on the Wii U,” and EA representative told Polygon.
What Wii U specific features this version will utilize is still up in the air, but you can be sure we’ll inform you when we receive more information.
Criterion’s latest spin on the Need for Speed series drops next week in the form of Need for Speed: Most Wanted for the Vita, PS3, PC, and Xbox 360, but will this game feature PS3/Vita cross-buy? It seems not. Following a message on the game’s PlayStation Store page that stated buying the game would limit it to two portable consoles, rumors sprung up that this meant the game would indeed be cross-buy compatible. Fans immediately contacted Morgan Haro, a prominent face on the PlayStation Blog, to get more clarification on this matter. (more…)
It looks like we finally have our first footage of Need for Speed: Most Wanted on the Vita! While this version of Criterion’s take on the Need for Speed franchise has been quite illusive, that hasn’t stopped them from displaying confidence in their ability to port the console version to the Vita.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is filled with loads of cars to acquire, things to smash, and police to escape from, but what’s the big objective this time around? Well, taking down the Most Wanted of course!
The Most Wanted are the best of the best, as well as the worst of the worse. They’ll do anything it takes to win a race, you know what that means? A challenge. You’re required to race and take down the Most Wanted racers in Fairhaven by any means necessary. To do so, you’ll have to take the fastest shortcuts, make use of the on-the-go customization, and your boost meter when necessary.
You can see what you’ll look like taking down a Most Wanted in the video above!
Need for Speed: Most Wanted will be available on the PlayStation 3, Vita, Xbox 360, and PC on October 30th. PlayStation Plus members can pre-order it off PSN for only $53.99.
This week’s PlayStation Plus update is full of magic and wonder, if you’re into space travel that is! Today on PlayStation Plus, we have Starhawk, the spiritual successor to Warhawk by the guys at Incognito Games, as well as our first few titles in the Day 1 Digital Promotion
Starhawk’s single player mode is now available as a part of the Instant Game Collection. As the title implies, this only includes the single player. If you want to play the multiplayer – which you probably should considering the fact that the single player essentially serves as an introductory point to newcomers for the multiplayer – you can pick it up for a measly $19.99! Not too shabby. If you find yourself to be engrossed in the multiplayer, you’ll be happy to know that all of Starhawk’s DLC – even the new pieces released today – will be free. That means you’ll be able to get extra vehicles, skins for customization and so on and so forth at no extra cost! For the rest of the PlayStation Plus update, follow us down below! (more…)
