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

Does it play nice?

Very nice. Smooth as butter. The controls take a bit to get used to, but it's nothing game-breaking.
Decent content? "Story mode" (if you can call it that) duration?
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. ;)

Haha! When you get it, let me know. I want to know what you think of it.

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

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but that's a long shot
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i think only the red mario kart edition phat was v5
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

  • BakerMan @ BakerMan:
    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space
