So for the thanksgiving I visited with family and friends. I also brought along Gran Turismo 5 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. Of course my friend grabbed the Gran Turismo 5 first, but what happened next is unbelievable.
I guess you can say this was an intended experiment to see what my friend thought of these two brand new racing games. Gran Turismo 5 was still in the shrink wrap when I brought it over. I had already played the crap out of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit and it's no secret that I love it. They writin' stories about my record times on the internet.
My friend immediately grabbed for the Gran Turismo 5, unwrapped it and put it in his Playstation 3. Of course we had to do a system update and an install. It's the Playstation what did you expect I told him. Reports on the internet was that there is a 45+ minute install time for GT5. Luckily we were distracted by family, football, alcohol and turkey. After the install I grabbed the remote and started to look through the menus. I just wanted a quick race so I can see it. I've been waiting for such a long time for this game and the internet has been an unstoppable buzz machine about everything GT5. Well I couldn't just race, I had to do a license test first. First license braking challenge. Ok seems simple enough. The countdown begins and then I'm off down the straight away. There is a giant checkered board at the end of the track, I guess gotta stop there. No problem. Perfect. Wait what? Failed? Aw fuck. I was called for the official turkey dinner start and left the game running right where I failed to brake. I was in shock that I failed the braking test.
After the meal I headed back into the game room and found my friend all up in the Gran Turismo 5. He was still trying to get a license so we could get into a real race. After each attempt at a challenge he handed me the remote and asked if I'd like to play. I respectfully declined. Watching was more than enough for me. 30 minutes later we had a license and entered a race. I still haven't seen anything really special, the game appears to be extremely in-depth and that kind of interests me. I watched my friend do one race and then it was my turn. After playing so much Need for Speed Hot Pursuit there was nothing special about driving a shit car in GT5 at 55 MPH. I was extremely bored with that type of racing. I imagine it would get better with more gameplay and more cars unlocked, but we didn't have time for that and I really wanted him to see the other game I brought at this point.
Finally we put in the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit into his Xbox 360. Within 3 minutes he was already racing. Then as the map began to open up and he unlocked more cop and racer events, it was clear to me we had a winner. He dropped subtle hints to his wife that he needed this game asap or a divorce was imminent. The funny thing about all of this to me is that my friend never asked me once if I wanted to play the Need for Speed, like he did in-between every GT5 load screen.
Gran Turismo 5 is a simulation. A serious simulation of a race car driver who must buy his own car collection, earn his own licenses and level up like an RPG. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is a straight up arcade racer that puts you into high speed racing action right away. I don't have an official opinion on Gran Turismo 5, but I'm sure I'll play it eventually ... if I can ever get off of Need for Speed and trying to beat all of my friends times on the speed wall. Thanks for reading.

Auto log app is out!
I just downloaded this for my iPhone, sent a few messages and saw who was beating me in what races. I'll be posting a review of the app soon. Anyone with iPod touch or iPhone head to the app store and get it, it's free!
After a couple of weeks of playing, it's still as fun as the first night thanks to a couple of features from the makers of Need for Speed.
After playing a few weeks with King of Jimmys("The Ultimate Enforcer") and Erik Estrada("Online Pwner"), I've been having as much fun as I've had since I got it. One of the best features about the game is the Autolog.
"The heart of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is Autolog, which is where your journey begins every time you enter Seacrest County. Autolog is the intelligent engine at the center of our most connected Need for Speed ever, keeping you in the middle of the action both in and out of the game. Through Autolog, you’ll be able to track your career progress, Personal Best times and how they compare against your friends, check out all your captured game photos, brag about your latest accomplishments, and jump into challenges recommended by Autolog’s comparison engine based on your friends’ gameplay."
"If your mug is going to be plastered all over your friends’ walls, you better make sure that your profile picture is exactly how you want it looking. If you’ve got photos on your computer that you’d rather use, log into Autolog on the web and change up your profile picture. It’s as easy as busting your friends! Just log into hotpursuit.needforspeed.com/autolog click on Career and then look for the camera icon on the profile picture space. Simple. " Lets take a look at a Rent a Cop Jimmy..
"Trash-talking is one of the best parts of gaming. Who doesn’t enjoy beating a friends time in an event and then bragging to them about it? Well, we’ve incorporated that right into the game thanks to Autolog, but when you’re not playing, that doesn’t mean the smack can’t continue to fly! Jump on to Autolog on the Web and access your wall. From there you can write a message to all your friends, or comment on anything your friend has said! Give it a try!" Lets take a look at some of the comments on my wall..
So now that I've seen that Jimmy has beated a few of my times, I'll want to go look at those races. So after drilling down to each individual race I come up with this.
Take a look at the attempts,WOW, so as you can see this Jimmy has put a lot of hard work into trying to beat my times. So this goes back to my very first point, this game is just as addictive now as it was when it was first released. I don't recommend you go off the deep end and play hours on top of hours trying to beat someone's time like this Jimmy did, but I definately recommend checking it out if you haven't.

Check out my impressions of EA's keynote speech inside.
So Microsoft's keynote was pretty disappointing; we all know it's true. Unless you care about watching Kinect, there was very little that was interesting. So then came EA's keynote. Was it better than Microsoft? For the most part, yes.
EA opened up with a new remake of Hot Pursuit. I have to say it: I wasn't that much impressed by the demo. It's from Criterion, and it certainly looked like it; the game really did appear to have a Burnout feel to it. The graphics do look impressive, but I just can't get over the fact that the game looks more like a Burnout game than a Need for Speed game. EA boasted that the game was going back to the Need for Speed roots, but I just didn't see it in the demo.
