Need for Speed: Heat Review

One of the greatest racing franchises to ever grace our consoles, Need for Speed has become synonymous with outlaw racing.

Twenty Super Nintendo (SNES) games came to the Nintendo Switch last week. Nintendo Online members can download a SNES app to…

Need for Speed™ Heat Official Reveal Trailer

Need for Speed: Heat was revealed today for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out the reveal trailer below. Need for Speed is an arcade racer, much like Burnout. I prefer Burnout but Need for Speed is pretty cool too. I’m glad to see arcade racers like this are still around. I do wish it was coming to the Nintendo Switch though. That said, Need for Speed Heat’s reveal trailer didn’t announce a release date nor did it…
