Speaking of the run did everyone else get the limited edition from BB in their order? I'm guessing it may be like Darkness II, where BB only stocks the limited edition.


Yeah, I got the LE as well

I got the LE. Since people said they got it as well, I assumed it was nearly universal.

I'min the middle of The Run, and it is one of the worst and most infuriating racing games I have ever played. I regret wasting my $5.

1. Awful loading times - For races that last a few minutes each, it is insane that the load times approach a minute, and if you happen to mess up before the first checkpoint, you might as well restart the race so you don't run out of resets near the end, which means you'll have to suffer the load time all over again even though you only played a few seconds.

2. Poor handling - All the cars are unresponsive and fishtail at the slightest touch. It's a struggle just to keep them on the road, much less weave in and out of traffic.

3. Cheating AI - Rubberbanding opponents that blow by you at the last second even though you are going top speed with nitro, cops that target only you, cops that suddenly catch up to you at 300 mph to bump you off course just as you reach a roadblock, civilian cars that turn into you for no reason as you try to pass, oncoming traffic that warps in to block you when the game senses you trying to pass with nitro, etc. I haven't seen a dirtier AI since the old PC Speed Racer game, where they would literally drop cars out of the sky into your path to make you crash.

I still haven't received a call saying that transferred media cabinet from a much further off store has come in or not as of yet. Something tells me the same thing that happened to another CAG(where they had one transferred and then it got sold to someone else just before they got there:bomb:) is what's gonna happen in my case as well.

It is worth $20. I picked up 2 at that price. I was looking for a storage solution for my games and Blu Rays and this worked perfectly. There are two screws (set like this : ) on the reverse side of the handles. Make sure the shelf nearest to the screws is set in between, above or below the screws. Otherwise, the screws will rub against the shelf and scratch the shelf's face. This was an issue with both units. So it is probably a design flaw. Other than that, it is difficult to access the media in the middle of the unit because the sliding doors overlap.

Thanks for the advice. I checked my closest store today to see if the truck came in yet and they said it shipped five days ago from the store it's coming from and to call tomorrow or possibly Thursday about it.

Hopefully they're right cuz I don't wanna make 5 trips back and forth for nothing.:cry:

I seen these go for 3 bucks at some local yard sales, YMMV

NFS The run is a fun rental racer and at $5, its a nice deal




The run is a decent arcade/simulator game much like similar to sega rally game in the handling department (PROTIP: The brakes are there to be used).
It suffers from bad publicity, AKA: OMG QTE IN MY RACER? THIS IS GONNA SUCK. And the main game is actually short for a $60 price tag...unless your going for Trophy/Achievments which will add probably 3 more days at best but around a weeks time. People will burn the story mode in about 5-6 hours.

The concept is good much like Crusin USA, but instead of that feeling for battling to get 1st to the final destination, its more of a "you must pass X cars or beat X time and per track, which is still good, but its poorly executed for a cross country race game (everything is scripted and not reaching what the track wants you to do means you have to restart the event instead of carry over and hope you can do better in the next track. So that big 200 Pole position becomes a "how long untill you finish the game"). It is a beautiful racer w/ alot of locations and variety though. And its more designed to be a movie popcorn game. The QTE are really short and only triggered on said destination, about 3 in total and are about 1-3 minutes long.

The main races are short burst runs usually about 1-3 minutes long which doesn't help a lot either. The only parts that did feel great in the race are the 1v1 battles and survivals, oddly enough, the last race in story mode was really fun, even though its hell on wheels to clear that on Extreme.

Despite all the flaws that is mentioned in the game, it is still a fun racer. Mostly cause the tracks are design to be fun in most cases. The landscapes are done really well for eye candy and there is enough variety of landscapes to make it enjoyable to continue playing. The sound track are hit and miss. The Brian Tyler tracks are the ones that tends to pump the players emotions and make the game more of a thrill ride, sometimes it feels like something out of Time Crisis. The others are usually the odd ball, you either like them or you hate them.

The challenges are hit and miss as well, depending how much you can tolerate missing the mark X amount of times, but it does last longer than the story races and it offers more variety.

Online is still decent, there are still people online to play against so you can still get those online trophies/achievments if your interested.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Update on my situation. The other store never sent the init media storage to my store and they sold it, but I had already paid for it. The awesome CS rep told me she would pm a similar priced storage unit. I ended up getting this: http://www.bestbuy.c....skar&cp=1&lp=2


It is the newer model of the 36.99 shelves they clearanced a couple of years ago. So now I will have 3 (hopefully) matching shelves! I still only paid 20.99 for it instead of 184.99!!!

Aw man, I wish that could have happened to me; that would have been awesome for $20.99. Instead I just got refunded the $22.25 I paid for the now-dead cabinet on a separate GC. :cry:
