NASCAR 14′ Review – Xbox 360 (Also on PlayStation 3 and Windows PC)

Posted By Jeff Markiewicz On April 8, 2014 at 1:31 pm ADD COMMENTS

Nascar 14 Screenshot 3NASCAR is a popular sport throughout the United States, followed by millions. It’s only natural that videogames based upon it have cropped up since the inception of gaming. The first NASCAR game was released in 1994 from the Papyrus Design Group. They had a good decade, so much so that drivers even practiced using their games, until Electronic Arts took hold of the license. When their license lapsed, it was free reign on NASCAR games with different games incorporating the sports. In 2010, Eutechnyx stepped into the foray and released several NASCAR-themed titles. Despite a pedigree in driving games, going all the way back to 1988 with Speed Ace on Atari, most of their work recently has been met with middling reviews. Now Eutechnyx brings us NASCAR ’14, published by Deep Silver. The odds seem stacked against this racer finishing at the front of the pack but you never know what will happen, especially in NASCAR.

Xbox One Logo
A young Ocean Beach boy discovered a back door into his dad’s Xbox One by simply typing spaces into the password box and hitting the enter on the on screen keyboard. Since then, Microsoft has patched the issue and gave him a few games and a year’s subscription to Xbox Live.

Just after Christmas, Kristoffer’s parents noticed he was logging into his father’s Xbox Live account and playing games he wasn’t supposed to be.

“I got nervous. I thought he was going to find out,” said Kristoffer.

In video shot soon after, his father, Robert Davies, is heard asking Kristoffer how he was doing it.

A suddenly excited Kristoffer showed Dad that when he typed in a wrong password for his father’s account, it clicked to a password verification screen. By typing in space keys, then hitting enter, Kristoffer was able to get in through a back door.
