About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Need for Speed Carbon' (ALL) Soundtrack Revealed

What starts in the city is settled in the canyons as Need for Speed Carbon immerses you into the world's most dangerous and adrenaline-filled form of street racing. You and your crew must race in an all-out war for the city, risking everything to take over your rivals' neighbourhoods one block at a time. As the police turn up the heat, the battle ultimately shifts to Carbon Canyon, where territories and reputations can be lost on every perilous curve. Need for Speed Carbon delivers the next generation of customization giving you the power to design and tweak your crew's cars in every way using the ground-breaking new Autosculpt technology. Represent your car class, your crew, and your turf in Need for Speed Carbon, the next revolution in racing games.

Fasten your seatbelts for the most intense ride of the year as EA redefines the sound of street racing with Need for Speed Carbon. For this long-awaited new chapter in the top-selling franchise, The riff-heavy power of such bands as Kyuss, Eagles of Death Metal, UK's Metro Riots and Australia's Wolfmother fuels the Muscle Cars. For the game's Japanese Tuner Cars, the soundtrack delivers a newly revitalized sub-genre of electronic music known as 'Electro' originally pioneered by Gary Numan and personified by such artists as UK's Ladytron and Goldfrapp, Australia's The Presets, Japan's melody and Canada's Tiga. Exotic cars are represented by a mix of the new UK Grime scene with artists such as Lady Sovereign, Roots Manuva and Sway, International Hip Hop from Pharrell, and Philadelphia's Spank Rock. And while the different crews may compete head-to-head, the three music genres combine to create what may be the most compelling and combustible game soundtrack of the year.

"Street racing is an international outlaw sport with a velocity all its own," said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA. "Need for Speed Carbon takes a cinematically sonic approach to the sport's different personalities and the crews that rule it. We've spent close to a year working with artists and labels from around the world to ensure that not only does the music capture the true hardcore styles of the sport, it also pushes it forward with breakthrough new artists. By combining these genres, we've now taken the premier street racing simulation brand in the industry to an unstoppable new level."
