The majority of us will check out EA Black Box's free-to-play Need for Speed World when it goes live for PC on July 27. The remaining audience -- as in, those who cough up $20 for the game's Starter Pack -- can begin playing immediately.

What does that up-front money get you, other than early access? A "credit for $20 worth of SpeedBoost (the in-game currency), full access up to level 50, and a bundled assortment of power-ups." Take note: non-paying players are unable to progress past level 10.

I attempted to play the beta version of Need for Speed World, but the client crashed every time I tried to switch to a not-tiny resolution. As such, you'll need to listen to Samit for our verdict on this one.

NHL 15 flaunts its alliteration with the Superstar Skill Stick

Slapshots from the point, cheeky tip-ins, and wristers through traffic are all perfectly fine, but when you play an NHL game, you want to embarrass your opponent. You want them going to get their jock out of the rafters...more
