Director Michael Bay is known for his bombastic, set-piece driven movies
EA's upcoming Need For Speed: The Run is gunning for a similar vibe, what with all the avalanches and white-knuckle chases. So it's pretty appropriate that the duo managed to team up in order to produce a blistering TV commercial designed to promote the game. You can watch it...
We already know that Need For Speed: The Run will have all of the same social multiplayer features as its predecessor -- that means Autolog, etc -- but what of the actual online experience in the cross-country racer? EA's latest trailer spills the beans, showcasing a kind of "Wheel Of Fortune" system which rewards you with anything from additional XP through to new cars should you meet specific targets
All looks nice and tidy, as you'd expect from a big-budget EA title. Catch the trailer after the jump. [youtube:www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp50..
These are great
Electronic Arts and Adidas have teamed up to produce a limited run of 100 Need For Speed: The Run style trainers. The trainers — which admittedly don't look very Need For Speedy — are great if you're into your retro footwear. "Our goal with Need for Speed is to be more than just a video game franchise, as we view ourselves as a leader in youth and automotive culture as..
EA's trotting out a demo for Need For Speed: The Run on October 18th
The demo will land ahead of the game's formal November 15th release. The demo will put you behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni (phew!) in a desert setting. Y0u'll get access to a 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S if you recommend the demo to a friend. Oh...
EA's announced it's teamed up with Sports Illustrated to include hotties Irina Shayk and Chrissy Teigen in upcoming racer, Need For Speed: The Run
The two ladies have been digitised as characters in the game. We're not going to pretend we're outraged by this. As one of the ladies points out in the "Behind The Scenes" interview below, Need For Speed and Sports Illustrated are aiming at the..
All racing games need a good story right? Err, right? Perhaps not, but that's the vibe EA's gunning for with Need For Speed: The Run
Having had some hands-on time with the racer, we've concluded that the game itself actually plays pretty damn well. But we're not so sure about the "wanted man must drive across America in a winner takes all competition" storyline. Hit the jump for the..
During the furore of E3, most peope were too enamoured by Need For Speed: The Run's (admittedly silly) on-foot sequences to notice how great the actual racing looked
Packed with superb visual effects, weighty arcade-handling and some glorious camera angles, the thrill of the racing got completely overlooked by the QTEs that followed. But while EA was probably wrong to focus so heavily on The Run's..
The big hook for Need For Speed: The Run is the fact that you can get out of your car
It's not exactly a feature Need For Speed fans have been crying out for, and it looked shoddy in the game's E3 demonstration. Settling somewhere in-between Heavy Rain and last year's Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, The Run is a cinematic racing game behind-the-wheel, but a Dragon's Lair impersonator on-foot. To..
Hurriedly announced after a teaser trailer leaked on a retail website, EA has confirmed that Need For Speed: The Run is a genuine video game due for release on PlayStation 3 this year
The game's pushing the Need For Speed franchise back into the realm of underground illicit, high-stakes racing, after Shift and Hot Pursuit both took the series in different directions. Fascinatingly, Need For..
People have been calling for a new SSX game for a number of years, but we're not sure SSX: Deadly Descents is what they had in mind
The flamboyant nature of the PlayStation 2's SSX titles appears to have been replaced by an edgy, gritty angle. Yeah. The trailer's after the jump.
EA has announced that the third iteration of their skateboarding game Skate 3 will launch in May
They've pitched the game for a release of the 11th in America and 14th in the UK. We can confirm that the game has skateboards in it.
EA have released the first teaser trailer for next year's Skate 3 - which according to the new footage suggests the game focuses very heavily on "team skating"
You'll be playing in teams of four online for popularity within the Skate.Feed community. It's a cool idea, but it'll be interesting to see just how well it actually works. Just like with Skate 2, Black Box are planning on upping the ante..
Blimey what's this? A new game announcement? Hurrah
EA have announced the third entry in their popular skateboarding series, Skate 3. The new game will be all about co-op and social teamwork, as explained by the game's senior producer Jason DeLong."The social and community aspects of the SKATE franchise are something we've always embraced, but we've never done anything to the scale you're..
