Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
So, is it me, or has the 3DS been underhyped? About a few days back, I was shocked to discover it was coming out next month. Next month!!
For me, this was basically how I heard about the 3DS progress:
-Hears about 3DS announcement where demonstrations come with chained women.
-Sees images of Kid Icarus.
-Few more months later, hears about a MGS3 port coming to 3DS.
-Few months later, hears about a port of OoT coming to 3DS.
-3D hazard warnings.
-Last week, discovers the release date is in March.
I just finished recording 2 hours worth of footage of NfS: Hot Pursuit's multiplayer, and there were a lot of great races with crazy crashes, escapes, and standoffs... Then when I went to look at some of the clips, turns out the game's audio was apparently too loud for the recording software, so all you hear is loud scratching drowning out the actual audio.
I just deleted all the clips. I'm sad. ;__;
Don't entrust me to park your car. I'll unknowingly hand the keys to a stalker, assuming it was a friend.

So, for the longest time, I was really curious about how this game played. I've constantly heard conflicting opinions on this game, and was wondering if people on both sides were exaggerating. Turns out the game just really, really sucks. How anyone can defend it is beyond my understanding. I should have gotten GunGriffon II on ebay, instead...
With that out of the way, I was finally able to play Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (360) this weekend, even though I've had it since last Monday. Only played Career mode so far, but it seems to be a solid, albeit, a pretty straight-forward racer.
Me: Now you can buy an HDTV, because this cable box is ready for it.
Him: HDTV, that's old stuff. That box won't even work with it. You need to stop living in 1995. I'll be getting a flat-screen TV when I could afford one.

However, there is hope on the horizon!
The follow-up has the potential

peace and prosperity to the Contra name.
Ray Poward also gets a second chance,
as well, so epic celebrations could be in order...
I never intended to review this game, but when I woke up in bed this Saturday and thought about stuff, this game came to mind. Next thing I knew, I was writing the opening paragraph in my mind while in bed, before even revisiting the game!
