    Got my paws on this game today. I have yet to see Watch Dogs, eyes to screen but I swear, Need For Speed is BEAUTIFUL! A few things...

    -No split screen LOCAL multiplayer is a disappointment.
    -Motion steering seems overtly sensitive
    -Analog stick turning doesnt seem as responsive or sharp
    -I LOVE how every Wii U compatible controller (minus GameCube, too early for the adapter) is supported.
    -I LOVE how you can change your button configuration. WTF happened to this in gaming?

    I can imagine so, I had fun with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 on the PS2! If I weren't dirt poor, I'd get this in a heartbeat... Ah well, maybe I can find it in a bargain bin :)

    I bought it specifically because I loved Hot Pursuit 2 for GameCube.
    Also, here a screenshot I took of actual gameplay:

    Jizz. In. My paaaaants
    (Also, nice aerial XD)

    Does it play nice? Decent content? "Story mode" (if you can call it that) duration?

    Very nice. Smooth as butter. The controls take a bit to get used to, but it's nothing game-breaking.
    There isn't too much of a "story mode." It's mostly missions scattered throughout the world.
    As far as content goes, I wouldn't say it has an incredible amount, but the real reason to play it is to crash into cops, get them to chase you through a city and call the SWAT team. :rofl2:

    Nope! :yaysp:
    I really do like the open world, though. I especially love the hidden warp pipes.

    Ok, you've enticed me XD I'm definitely going to be adding this to my "2015 video game wishlist", especially if I can find it cheap!

    Edit: I was just looking at those pictures, and it hit me:
    MAN Nintendo consoles have come a long way in terms of lighting engines!

    How does $20 sound?

    Totally agree! I remember when Luigi's Mansion had the best lighting. ;)

    :O Like I'm gifting myself a Need for Speed game in the near future!

    Ah yes, the GameCube days, when CEL-shaded cartoon-y graphics slightly improved shadow rendering and Nintendo thought the future of HD was blur, not bloom ;)

    Certainly! It will likely be a little while, though. Like I said, I'm broke, I'd be using the last $20 cash I have (I have money in the bank, but emergency savings are nice)

    Maybe I'll drop "subtle" hints to my girlfriend XD
