Editor’s note: The mysterious figure known as Superannuation digs through the Internet to find secrets companies don’t want to announce yet. All of what Superannuation finds is available to the public. Are these true gaming secrets? Or are they gaming red herrings planted to throw Superannuation off? Read on…
In my review of Need For Speed: Most Wanted, I mentioned how the game has these wicked-cool little videos that play before every race. There are a lot, and they’re great. I grabbed one to give you a sense of what I’m talking about.
Need For Speed: Most Wanted is a video game shot out of a cannon. It starts at a sprint and never stops for breath, hurtling forward with such momentum that it feels like it may rattle apart at any moment. Most Wanted is exhilarating, disorienting, maddening, cathartic and hilarious, all in equal measure. It’s the most purely enjoyable racing game I’ve played in ages.
The folks who publish the Battlefield and Mass Effect franchises aren’t above some really questionable marketing campaigns. Remember the fake protests for Dante’s Inferno or the Dead Space 2 ads that talked about your mums? Now, their latest could-be-controversial gambit is a plea to raise the speed limit to 130mph (209km/h) because that’s what Americans want.
When you begin a game of Need For Speed: Most Wanted, your engine will be off. How do you start it? Well, by saying “engine start”.
Trailers are often criticised these days for showing little, or even no gameplay footage. It’s a fair complaint, but also one that should be shelved, at least temporarily, for this clip.
I was a little worried my new mobile gig here at Kotaku would preclude me from enjoying Need for Speed: Most Wanted. Looks like EA Mobile and the racing experts at Firemonkeys have me covered. This is gorgeous.
