I had no idea there was that much silicon in Japan. But it only makes the balance that much more impressive, doesn't it?

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

E10 What do these ratings mean?

The NFS series have been going good for a while. They have fun, fast paced racing, and, aren't very realistic. The series have started getting "Riced Out" with NFS underground. Thats one thing i have to complain about with this game. I mean, sure it is amazing ripping around a dark city in a Porsche Carrera GT, but in a pimped out one with 21 inch rims and a retarted spoiler??! I mean, you dont have to buy the parts and stuff, but thev'e gone way to far with the body kits.

The Driving is pretty fun, and you can plow pretty much anything over without hurting your car. The slow motion thing is pretty handy. Hurtling into a wall at 200MPH? no problem, just hit the speed breaker, and use some nos, and then your on your way. The races are way to easy, but the boss races, the canyon races, are pretty hard. I think that it was a good idea to not allow you to use speed breaker and NOS in the canyon. You acually have to have skills to win, instead of blasting around corners at perposterous speeds, getting sucked forward by your hommie G who is "Slipstreaming" you. Get this, when you go behind someone to slipstream them, big purple clouds  come of the back of their car to tell you that you will be pulled glued to the other one, attaining stupid speeds through corners as well as straights. In reality, when you slipstream, all of the downforce on your car is gone, so when you corner, you should be going slower that normal. And, all of the pre-heated air from the car in front of you is going into your engine, so if you slipstream for too long, your engine will overheat.
