After spending an embarrassing amount of hours trying to beat Hades at heat 32 cause @howo had to mention that's where he's at, I decided to switch it up a bit now with a different heat; Need for Speed. Noticed this game on sale on Steam and have always been a fan of NFS from the very beginning, although more then than recently, so I thought why not. This also gave me a chance to try out my new controller I got for games like these on my new pc and have to say that's really one of the few games you want to have the smoothness of a joystick where a keyboard and mouse combo can't beat it.
I was having some issues with OBS when trying to record this game, it was making it difficult to record it on a smaller resolution and when I tried to record it in the res I was playing it at the encoder wasn't having it and giving me a black screen recording. Took me a while to figure out I had to switch to an encoder that supported that res but when I did my few seconds of testing I of course didn't realize the bitrate was horribly low because the quality looked decent when "nothing was moving about" in the menu screen. This led to horrible quality in my first recording which is the longest, and the main reason I decided to do another recording in the same day was to try and make up for it so you can see the quality of this game, albeit somewhat old now (release date end of 2019).
Anyway, here are the recordings, I decided to also lower the game volume in the second video as it turns out it was higher than expected which made my bad quality mic even harder to understand what I was saying. I don't post gaming content that often these days so hope you forgive my lack of preparedness, but I'll try improve on that front in the near future, hope the resolution won't make it too difficult to view!
PS! The automated live subtitles are horrible but makes it kind of funny for me when watching through the vids so Imma leave them on. :P
Thanks for watching, let me know what you think of Need for Speed! Haven't really followed it much in the last decade but definitely looking out for some newer racing games now that I have an xbox controller to enjoy them with, although mostly looking for some fighting games at the moment!
