So I decided to write myself a game review on Need for Speed Payback. It has been out for while and were able to gather my thoughts on the game. It is a lengthy read but I would like it to be a discussion. You can find the thread of the review/discussion HERE . Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in the thread and check out other threads too.
IT'S COMING BACK!!! Yup, you read that right! Need For Speed World with its full online experience might be on its way back to computers thanks to a multicultural mix of guys testing their servers out to work with the game. Its called SoapBox Race World (for copyright reasons or denial of aid from EA or something like that).
If you think this is hoax and fake new. Let me assure you. This is a legit NFS World with online capabilities as we've seen before (group chat, lobby chat, multiplayer public races, private races, etc.). There are several things they need to stabilise like more and stronger servers, BUT, nevertheless, there is hope.

So the first ever car mod for NFS Undercover was released not so long ago by Robin7t4 & nfsu360 which is apparently a Citroen GT Concept.
The mod tools of the game were not released as of yet and we are still waiting for that. Lets just appreciate that we have dedicated talented individuals working for the good of the NFS modding community. Also maybe this not so popular game might receive some modding love by the modding community in terms of car mods as it is now clearly possible to mod the game. We just have to see how it all goes but its really good news.
Below the image is the link for the Citroen GT Concept blog post with the download link and the instructions on how to install the mod.

We also had one of our long-time and well respected member, Ti-Sonic make a demo video about the mod which you can check out HERE
As you can see the site has been updated. I would like to apologize for the extreme delay which was caused from being very busy with work for the past year.
I am still in the process of tweaking things and finding/fixing bugs but uploading files and showroom rides should work without issues now.
- New site, duh.
- Site speed improvements
- New download/showroom system
- New custom forum with a lot less features then vbulletin currently.
- New and improved search
- Site wide shoutbox
- Many many more changes/improvements which I do not remember off the top of my head.

The all Xbox exclusive racing game series Forza was just confirmed to be available on PC
on the Windows 10 OS. This might not make sense since many people only had an Xbox
for Forza and now that is not needed. Either this is a really good new for PC gamers
and I personally cant wait for the new Forza which will come to PC as it will to Xbox.
Dan Greenawalt, Creative Director at Turn10 said :"Moving forward, all of our games are
going to be shipping on Windows 10 and Xbox,"

Now this may not concern Need for Speed itself but it sure does influence the car gaming
scene a lot and hence the article.
Evolution Studios has created a few big games like WRC and the MotorStorm. And its
recent game was DriveClub. At launch the game wasnt too good. It has server issues for
at least month but they fixed that. They added new content as frequently as possible. They
listened to the community. Yet Sony didnt see all this and decided to shut the studio down.
The decision was made after one of its â€œregular reviewsâ€ of the groups that make up SCE
Worldwide Studios: â€œAs part of this process we have reviewed and assessed all current
projects and plans for the short and medium term and have decided to make some changes
to the European studios structure.â€ Following this 55 talented game makers lost their jobs
although Sony is trying to relocate them to other of its branches. Even though its really sad
to see a good racing game making studio just disintegrate into nothing.
Driveclub will live on but that just only means the servers will be maintained but new content
in the future is highly unlikely. Please post your thoughts on the matter in the comments.
Farewell Evolution Studios.

So after the release of the new Need for Speed on consoles the PC users were left with only
videos of the new game since the PC launch day was delayed till next year. But now a teaser
trailer was released by Nexon on YoutTube of a NFS title names Need for Speed Edge. As
of far the news, its possibly the replacement for the not-so-long ago shut down
Need for Speed World. Below you'll find the teaser trailer and one of the millisecond little
footage I was able to screenshot and their official site.
