If you haven't tried the demo yet... please do! It was a lot of fun and could be a decent Burnout replacement until another real Burnout reveals itself!
I know I said that about Blur and Split/Second, but I really mean it about this one!
Just out of curiosity is anyone attending this years Eurogamer ???? I will be there camera in hand and pen behind my ear ..... so if your going let me know and who knows I may see you there ......
it seems so much has changed since my last visit *looks around* very nice indeed. I did have to double check that I was actually on the right site ..... lol
I'm sorry if I interrupt your freeburn and attempt to do stuff. I am not very good, but trying to get better. How the hell do you get to be that fast? I'm going around and whoosh.... there goes someone else, flying higher, going faster and looking way, way cooler....
So, if you meet up with me, please be patient.
Thanks - Oldvolvoman
We are still making changes to the site after the major update we did a couple of weeks ago.
The following has been changed / fixed:
Personally I do not like the way you navigate menus using Kinect. Navigation is way to slow with the current implementation due to the pauses when selecting items and the fact that most games implement a system where you have to verify your choice with a OK/Cancel after selection.
One of the first features we added to our site back in 2007 was the "BurnoutAholics Gamertag Generator". This has been extremely popular and has been featured on the top of list of name-generators all over the web.
Unfortunately the generator stopped working a couple of weeks ago. Today I finally got around to fixing it. While doing so I also expanded the wordlists that is used to generate the names. It can now generate over 37000 different names!
BurnoutAholics.com has now been upgraded to the latest supported version of Drupal. We are still working on the site but most of the features and a couple of new ones are already up and running. Some content is still missing but I hope to fix that quickly.
We will also be doing some major changes to the apperance of the site but that will have to wait until we are sure everything is ok after the upgrade.
Here is a couple of things that have changed:
- The editor used for writing comments and blogs has been upgraded.
This weekend we had a bit of a clear out at home and it's inspired me to do the same to our Links page.
There are a few more Criterion Games dudes on twitter who I will be adding. Mostly tho, I am deleting links which are pretty much redundant now.
A few of our community forum links have been inactive for some time, other links like the Paradise Bugzilla are no longer relevant, it's not like CG are looking at fixing any more Paradise bugs now!
After seeing a photo of the guys at Criterion Games playing Burnout CRASH! on Kinect, I thought I would give it a go myself!!
This is the Criterion Games photo:
Now... My turn!!!:
