    Just finished the cop part of the game. Felt kinda like a chore after Chapter 7.

    Onto the racer side now.

    IMO the racer side is better. I finished that first having trouble getting into the cop side.
    I really wish Ghost would add to the map. :/

    In my recent video, it seems apparent to Rivals' producer Leanne Loombe that she likes her "FAST" cars way too much. And by FAST, I mean 60FPS FAST. Also, she thinks Frostbite 3 is amazing obviously.

    Kinda played today, managed to get both of those online trophies, now just onto the rest of the 30 racer events.
     
  5. I kinda liked Rivals.

    + Ferrari is back. No matter how much I dislike the company I still like (some) of their cars.
    + Open world. It's nice just to kick back and cruise around.
    + Customisation (alright, "Personalisation") is back.

    - Always online. No real pause button. Sure you can opt to play offline only, but that sort of kills the fun of it. And when you do play online, the game goes into an awful slow-down for whatever reason (not sure what this is like on current-gen consoles).
    - Customisation is too restrictive at the moment. It's nice being able to decorate your car with new paints, vinyls and stripes (I love my prototype-liveried C-X75), but where are the bodykits, wheels and other visual modifications that people are crying for? At least give us two or three personal kits per car like The Run.
    - Sarge obviously isn't being allowed to make another Burnout by EA probably so he's taken the only logical route and hijacked NFS.
    - It's buggy as hell.
    - The car list feels too small, and when you've unlocked the fastest cars the ones before them become useless. There are no races which restrict you to using them.
    - The map is a decent size, but it is too restrictive. So what if I want to go climb a mountain or drive into the sea? Why can't I do that?
    - The maximum amount of players per game is far too low to fill up the map. I still don't understand this. If games like Forza and Gran Turismo can cope with full lobbies of 16 cars that are far more detailed than NFS's will ever be, then why can't NFS?

    In a word; disappointing.

    I have noticed that after playing for awhile, and if you are with a friend it kinda starts lagging like crazy. Anyways, did a few more down to 34 races to gold, another 25 er so speedlists to complete then plat.

    Is the Jaguar DLC pack still available? I must have missed out on it as its not on PSN. Shame really wanted to get that and when I finally got the money on PSN it wasn't there.

    I am still trying to plat the game but other things keep getting in the way.
    Is the Enzo the best maxed out or is the P1?

    They came to their senses, at last. I sincerely hope it will be worth the wait.

    I can see that 2015 being released in like Jan of 2015. So they can say oh we won't release one this year but will do it next year for this year increase the hype.
     
  15. I chose the P1... big wing and national pride haha.
    Seriously though, when I originally went online everyone was in P1s. Guess that means something...

    I think the main issue with the way Craigy boy is doing NFS is that he thinks the formula that made Burnout Paradise fantastic translates well to NFS. Apparently it does not translate well enough and they need to do something different. I enjoyed Most Wanted 2012 quite a bit (It had an LFA in it and I used that thing the most I could even if the model's proportions were off putting).

    The durability isn't as strong as the enzo though. Since my accuracy isn't the best going through pitstops.

    OH! :eek: Oh please let it be a new Burnout game! :D:D I miss Burnout so very much along with Criterion Games working on it. I hope its like Burnout 3 or at least close to it. :)

    I'd throw all my money at it if it was a sequel to Paradise.

    Same here. :D Burnout Paradise is a really good game, and its still going strong since 2008. I for one will love to see a sequel of it. :tup:
     
  21. I completed the entire racer career with the 2015 Mustang and Veneno, I don't know what that says :lol:

    Sadly Criterion isnt working on a racing game, or so they say. Its supposed to be a new IP. But who knows,
    the game theyre making could have vehicles in it. There were rumors they were working on a Star Wars or Battlefield game at one point. However I believe that proved to be not true. We will find out in less than a month when E3 is upon us! :D

    This delay is the best thing I have seen in a while. It shows me that EA have realised that NFS can't operate with one studio, that just can't happen. With the 2 year development time, Ghost have time to perfect everything and to make the ultimate fan game, and importantly fix up NFS. Also get rid of Craig please. :p

    Just did the HUD removal thing for the PC version. Makes the graphics really shine.

    I might finally get to complete the game this weekend, hopefully, but I got a week to play it too. (As long as I go on GT6 to get my bonuses first)

    Edit: I am only 12 speedlists away from completing the racer events. Taking a break now since most of them now are time consuming, including that last event. Around the whatever.

    Edit2: Just finished the game, had to do grand tour 3 times after the first one froze with 9 miles to go. Anyways got my Plat and 100% game complete, Off to the next game.

    Probably at a price of 59.99 for the game. (Which I could believe since it's EA)
    Don't expect much in the new nfs anyways.

    It is a gorgeous game, but with no photomode to admire the scenery and rain on the cars, i was done with it the same evening.
