Need for Speed


Having spent countless hours messing around in the wonderful multiplayer component of Burnout Paradise, I'm totally sold on what the studio brought to the table with Need for Speed Most Wanted. Some of you, on the other hand ...


I remember playing Need for Speed World during its beta days. The free-to-play racing MMO certainly had me hooked for a while, but then something happened; I'm not even entirely sure what it was but it was enough to make me n...


Need for Speed Most Wanted is quite an anticipated game for many racing fans, heralding a welcome return to Criterion's open-world style, with tons of stylish cars and modes to boot. Naturally, this is an opportunity for EA t...


Go ahead. Ram me off the road. It's cool. I'm not mad. I realize that it's part of the experience and fair game. We're good, man. But don't get mad if you find that I've intentionally given up placement in the next challenge ...


I've been playing Need for Speed Most Wanted for quite awhile now, in both preview form and now with final code for our upcoming review. The Embargo Gods prevent me from saying much before then, but I'll sneak this out: it's...


They've done a really nice job with this live-action Need for Speed Most Wanted television commercial. It really captures the feeling of the game with its high-flying middle finger. You'll see what I mean. There's some incre...


Speaking to The Guardian, Need for Speed Most Wanted creative director Craig Sullivan divulged what many of us were hoping: "There's still a lot of stuff we want to do with driving. We will make another Burnout game at some p...


Look, I could give you a rundown of everything that's said in this new Need for Speed Most Wanted trailer. Or, you know, you can just watch it. You really should watch it, as it shows off just how awesome and frantic the mul...


Criterion says that they pulled some of the best bits from several of their racing creations to make their latest, Need for Speed Most Wanted. They also gathered inspiration from the classic franchise title of the same name. ...


So ... Burnout is awesome. Always has been, always will be. And while it is true that we haven't seen a true game from that franchise in a while, Criterion has been doing its best to bring all of the insane, anarchic fun we ...


2nd place. But I was absolutely certain I'd score 1st in the 8-player multiplayer room they have set up here at Tokyo Game Show 2012. In covering this event for the last half decade or so I've learned that Japanese attendees ...


In this video, we're given a feature-by-feature rundown of Need for Speed Most Wanted's single-player campaign. It's the kind of stuff that won't really seem new if you've been keeping up with Criterion Games' work over the ...


Man, I wish it was like this in real life. I see cars that I want all the time but all I can do is make a childish grabbing motion in the air, as if I could just whine and someone would give it to me for doing so. That's why...


Need For Speed Most Wanted is such a fun racing game. Criterion has created a perfect racing experience that's just jam packed with a ton of content. There's so much content that Kinect might actually make itself u...


At EA's gamescom press conference today in Cologne, Germany, it was revealed that just about all of the cars will be unlocked from the start of upcoming racer Need for Speed: Most Wanted. So, no more unlocking. Wait, wh...


Hey, remember the awesome video showing off a great deal of Need For Speed Most Wanted? Well here's a new trailer that's made up of a bunch of quick cuts and weird shots. I still recommend watching this as there are a few sc...


The developers behind the free-to-play Need for Speed World recently reveled the addition of drag races, allowing players to compete against other racers in the online world. Also mentioned were plans for integration with EA'...


Yeah, so we're a little late on this but that's not going to stop me from posting this video showing off Need For Speed Most Wanted. Just look at it! The open world racer is combining Burnout Paradise's style of racing with ...


Electronic Arts and Criterion Games have come out with the pre-order incentives for this year's Need for Speed: Most Wanted. By putting money down early at participating retailers, you'll get three free packs: Speed Pack: Th...


DreamWorks Studios has acquired the film rights to Need for Speed, the company and Electronic Arts announced today. Production of the movie is planned to commence early next year, with the full release scheduled for 2014. The...


I freaking love Burnout. Rewarding wanton destruction in a race is right up there with the printing press for the greatest accomplishment of our species. When Criterion took the stage at the EA press conference, I hoped it wa...


I know, these Need for Speed subtitles are getting a bit confusing, but the games are anything but. People seem to find something appealing about driving sexy, nasty cars that break the $100K mark, and playing chicken with th...


Criterion Games is bringing back speed and high-stakes action in their upcoming reboot of Need for Speed: Most Wanted. The scenic vistas and sun-soaked highways return with more destructible items and explosions then before....


The headline says it all, but allow me to reiterate because there's little else for me to do: Electronic Arts has sent out the first official screenshot of Need for Speed Most Wanted. It's being developed by the beloved Crite...


Electronic Arts is closing down the servers for a number of games, including a few that required paid online passes to activate. A representative told Beefjack that dwindling activity on the games is the reason, and that "les...


Social media are hard to use, aren't they? Earlier this morning, @gamedigital -- the Twitter account for UK retailer GAME -- tweeted that "This morning we're at an EA presentation, where we hope to see some pretty cool games...


Usually I get angry or dismayed when one of Electronic Arts' shenanigans come to light, but when it comes to the downloadable content for Need for Speed World, I can't help but laugh. The free-to-play PC racer is offering car...


Just when you thought that online passes couldn't get more amazing, it's been discovered that they can expire, locking brand new copies of games out of various multiplayer modes. What a brilliant new feature.  Attention ...


We are getting ever closer to the busiest shopping day of the year. Kmart has some pretty good deals going on. Here's a short list of what you can expect to find should you choose to do shopping there: $199.99 - Get a $25 gi...


While I prefer racing sims, sometimes it's nice to not have to worry about technical details like race formation, proper lines and vehicle specifications. Sometimes you just want to go fast. EA's Need for Speed has always ser...


A couple of days ago we learned that Michael Bay was working with EA to make a trailer for Need for Speed: The Run that would serve as a TV commercial. Now that the actual commercial has been released, our eyes can take a look and process it into our brains. It's directed by Michael Bay, has explosions, women, cars and yes, explosions.


In an interesting bit of promotional work, Electronic Arts has announced that they've teamed up with Michael Bay to produce and release a Need for Speed: The Run commercial via Facebook. Fans of The Run's Facebook page will a...


Much like sports games, I prefer my racers to be as arcade-y as possible. Real life is boring enough already. Why try to simulate that when you can hit a dozen home runs in a row, pull off an end zone to end zone Hail Mary p...


In conjunction with the release of The Black Keys' new single "Lonely Boy," EA has put out a pretty stellar trailer for Need for Speed: The Run that features the new track. The trailer does a pretty good job of showing off t...


EA Games and Sports Illustrated have come together to create a rather unusual competition for the recently released Need for Speed: The Run demo. You see, swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen, who actually stars in th...


Electronic Arts has announced a partnership with shoemaker Adidas to promote Need for Speed: The Run. Adidas has provided the shoes protagonist Jack wears when he gets out of his car to dash through quick-time event sequences...


You'll see why they call this trailer "On The Edge" when you watch it.  EA really has arcade racing on lockdown, and they're not letting up. The next game in the NFS series, Need for Speed The Run, centers around a cros...


I hate when the headline says it all.  The demo for Need for Speed The Run drops on October 18 for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. In it you'll immediately have access to the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valent...


[Update: Trailer added. Perverts.] "Dangerous curves," EA says. They're talking about both the courses in Need for Speed The Run and the curves on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011 models, Irina Shayk and Christine Teigen...


One of the most attractive aspects a videogame can offer is escapism. Offering the chance to experience things that you just can't get in real life helps to satisfy that whiny inner child's vivid imagination. Take this ...
