I was simply stating that there was no reason to say "NEED FOR SPEED 2008" was in the process, or ANYTHING stating there was a new game.

1) There is a title on the page for CARBON.
2) There is a countdown timer.
3) There is a new looking video.
4) The title above the video says Need For Speed : NEXT

All I was saying was he came on suggesting NFS:2008, and I couldn't find anything saying so.

Love how you guys turned this into "dpawl quit harpin on him you are an idiot".
Considering it was on CARBONS page, I have NEVER played carbon, and nothing on the site said anything about a new game, besides a video on the main page, with everything around it entitled CARBON.

I could have gone without the smart ass comments directed at me, and "LOL" at my expense. Really immature.

I could have just reported those posts for a warning, but I am not like that.
I want to explain myself. And I did. Nothing up until those posts AFTER I went to bed explained what was going on with the site. Obviously going by the site, SOMETHING was coming out on MAY31st, but it had NO title, no explanation, and was on the NFS:Carbon website. After needforspeed.com defaults to it. As in, Carbon is their latest game.

I really don't like the way I got disrespected overnight. Especially from certain members that should be respected themselves due to their post count/REP count. And then I get... " If you'd stop being smart "

Never felt like such a tool in my entire OCN life. I am not that kind of person. I was simply trying to find out what his basis was to say NFS:2008, since everything on the site was related to CARBON!

<--Not a happy OCNer. And now I am probably going to lose respect from some of you, because you are going to call this a "rant" and tell me I was way off base.
Sorry dude--I didn't mean anything negative towards you. I actually just thought it all was a funny progress of events/posts--nothing annoying. Jesus, I've made some stupid posts before--yours was nothing like my horrible ones. It's no biggie. Sorry for any offense towards you--it wasn't intended.

This game looks waesome...

My rating system for the Underground-up games goes like this:

1. NFSMW
2. NFSU2
3. NFSU
4. NFSC

1 being highest. Granted MW didnt have drifting, but it had a killer car selection and soundtrack and graphics and gameplay. The story line sucked, but the challenges were awesome. Carbon absolutely sucked IMO. They just stuck it in the gutter.

2008? 07 isn't over yet.

Anyhow, I have Carbon and haven't even finished it. I think I'm at 20%, got an 80% to go.

2008 looks better than Carbon though. Carbon too kiddie IMO.

Its just like car years the 08's are out before 07 is over. And sicne the name of the Game is NFS:Next the 08 thing doesnt even matter.

Also what is with the V8 VS. Tuner thing lol. Yeah a nice throaty V8 sounds really good but give me the sound of a Turbo spoolin up and a blow off vavle any day.

And another thing, whats so impressive about an V8...I mean I find somethign with half the cyl and less then half the displacement putting out more power then a V8 to be inmpressive...and if your all about size then why not a V12...of screw it go with a W16

because a modded RX7 is one of the fastest street cars in the world, stock it's soso, but it has a great workstation for HP/TQ, same reason a RB26DETT Skyline is on there, Amazing engine with great head room for modding, but imports would easily beat old muscle cars in road racing, and track racing, but some muscle cars could take them in 1/4 miles though because of the TQ numbers they put down. Lack of cornering and high end speed prevent them from competing elsewhere. Nissan 4 Life!!

Also, they throw all the different cars in their to have a widespread audience, even though the games are more for tuners and exotics, so they have to make unreasonable changes to make the muscle cars more competitive which is why these newer games are kinda fun, but suck compared to the god of all NFS games: NFS 3 Hot Pursuit!!!
