On Screen Car gaming fans prepare to drool as the Need for Speed franchise rolls out another hit, "The Run." Just this week I received a heads up from EA with this stunning preview of the Porsche 911 Carrera S from the new game installment. I thought I would post and share with you guys. As you may know Porsche has redesigned the 911 from the ground up. Not to mention the 'S' is an added bonus. Here's an quote from EA's ad.
Stunning. Sleek. Stylish. Whatever you want the "S" to stand for, the Porsche Carrera S is truly in a class of it's own...
There's a little bit of story line as well:
Jack is in a race for his life, but he's got something the competition doesn't: You and the all new Porsche 911 Carrera S. This new Porsche can be found in the Limited Edition and will let you tear past rivals as you keep Jack one step ahead of the dangers from his dark past, both inside and outside the car in this action packed race from San Francisco to New York.
Stunning. Sleek. Stylish. I can't agree more. The following YouTube video is pretty easy on the eyes as well. The game will be due out in November. Pre-orders are already being taken over at Amazon for the Need for Speed: The Run - Limited Edition. It is available for PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and 3DS. Please feel free to use our affiliate links to pre-order/purchase your copy today.
Getting bored of Farmville? Car nuts are you looking for a Facebook game tailored more toward you? Then look no further. From the makers of Nitto 1320 Legends we bring you Car Town! Warning. What you're about to see is not a 3D racer with a million options and fine tuning. Nor is it a replacement for the beloved Motor City Online. But what you will find is an addictive friendly social browser game worthy of mention. So what's all the hipe?
Well imagine owning your own virtual cartoony garage. Much like Farmville, you run a business using your friends as employees. You manage your shop's resources and services. This is just the beginning. You can use the money you earn to build and customize your own cars. You can even race cars against other friends. As you advance in level you can unlock new virtual pieces and parts. You can pimp out your ride as well as your shop.
What I found interesting about the game is the fact they're using licensed cars, parts and addons. Not many free games can afford to offer such licensed content. But I think their business model aids the license providers as well as the company delivering the product. It's a win win situation for all. The cars in the game realistic enough to resemble what they are labeled. But cartoony enough to offer character that can be enjoyed by kids and adults of all ages. Similar to what Disney / PIXAR did for their movie Cars. Hat's off to the team at Cie Games. Till next time keep your bays full and your employees busy.
