Pimped up ride

Need for Speed may be about to overtake Until Dawn in the dumb department – and that's a sentence that we never thought we'd type. A new trailer for the forthcoming PlayStation 4 reboot shows off the title's FMV cut-scenes, which are every bit as embarrassingly cheesy as you could imagine. No sign of Razor Callahan yet, though.

One nifty feature is that the game will blend video with in-game car models, meaning that your customised vehicle will always be accurately represented in the cinematics. Y'know what, people are going to frown at this, and right they should – but between this and Guitar Hero Live, this author's pretty stoked that bad acting is back in games.
