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 the game, has challenged all The Run demo players with beating her personal best time on the Desert Hill level. The Run's demo will only be available from October 18 to November 1.

In order to actually enter, you'll need to tweet @NeedforSpeed with a "NFSTheRun_SI" hash-tag (minus the quote marks of course) along with a picture of your time. This new partnership expands beyond just the competition with both companies making a "Making of" DVD for the game which will be included in a special Sports Illustrated subscription offer along with a copy of The Run on either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.

The winner of the competition will meet Teigen at Las Vegas next February during Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit "launch week." You can check out official rules on Need for Speed's official website.

In a little more than two weeks, Need for Speed: The Run will be released to the masses. Before it joins the avalanche of holiday titles this November, though, I had the opportunity to play the game's single-player and multip...
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.

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...

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 ...
I am a huge fan of arcade racers, and they haven't come in as sweet a flavor as last years Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. Having already released Shift 2 this year for the driving simulation crowd, EA is bringing out Need for Speed: The Run this November, and it's sure looking to be a worthy successor to the adrenaline soaked madness that was Hot Pursuit. 
As a kid, I've always wanted to get a Harley and drive from coast to coast. Even though Need for Speed: The Run doesn't quite live up to those childhood dreams, I would be the last one to complain about Porsches, Zondas and a few hundred miles of track. We chatted with EA Black Box about where the idea for the story came from, its use of the Frostbyte 2 engine, and the new and improved Autolog.
