Paradise..What Might Have Been...

Criterion Games have posted a new story on their website today, telling us about what might have been...

They sure had big plans for Paradise, even talking about giving us the moon!

Here is an excerpt of the article, showing what was discussed as possible DLC;


No Big Surf Vacation for PC Users

It seems like all the news stories I write lately are bad ones... sorry PC users but it seems that there are no plans to release Big Surf Island for PC. This story broke over at a German games site www.Gameswelt.de just over a week ago. Click HERE for the full story in German, google translate didn't do a brilliant job, but the gist of it is "No DLC for PC" sorry folks! Hope we have some better news for you next time!

Two of the New Island Cars Revealed

Criterion Games have released details of two more of the nine cars coming with Big Surf Island. These two you will have to work for, they will be unlockable within Big Surf Island.

The first is the Hunter Olympus Governor. This is the Olympus with a twist, not only does it feature a camo livery, but it also comes with BOOST! Stunt Boost to be precise. They go on to state that this vehicle is virtually impossible to wreck, so it must be as tough as old boots.

The second is the Carson Annihilator Street Rod. This is a Speed Boost car. To see the pics of these cars head over to www.CriterionGames.com.
