Addiction points? What's that?

Some people might be wondering what these Addiction points are all about... well I thought it would be a funny thing to add. Basically the points gives an idea of how active you are on the site.

You get 3 points for a blog entrey, 1 point for comments, 1 point for suggeting a poll that gets put up on the site, 2 points for a FAQ that gets approved and added to our Burnout FAQ. Getting a clip added to the Revenge Clips gives you 5 points (only awarded once pr. user). If you write an article that makes it in to our Featured Articles section you can get anything from 5-50 points. There are lots of ways to earn points, but please remember that it's just a way to see how much users have contributed and it is no competition. If people start doing 1 line blogs to get more points I think you all know what will happen.

We have still not decided what to call the points. If you have any good suggestions add it as a comment to this post. We will do a poll and if your suggestion gets picked we will give you 5 points

Edit: Then we're sticking with ZombieTron's suggestion.

The Age - Screen Play - Alex Ward Interview

Welcome to Paradise


Burnout fans: prepare for Paradise. But be warned: according to the game's creator, you might think the latest game in the high-speed, fender-bending franchise is more like hell. 

Due before Christmas on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Paradise lets drivers explore a huge, open world (the biggest publisher Electronic Arts has ever offered) based on roads in Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston. 

Players are able to improvise and make their own fun as they drive around, while starting a formal race is as simple as pulling up at a set of traffic lights. Records like fastest speed and biggest crashes are registered for every road you drive on, which you can instantly compare with friends' results.

Up to eight mates can play online together, enjoying races, triggering huge pile-ups, performing coordinated daredevil stunts and playing games like tag. 

Screen Play spoke to the always passionate and outspoken Alex Ward, creative director at developer Criterion Games, while he was in Tokyo recently. Click below to see why he believes Paradise is the best Burnout game yet, and why some long-time fans will hate the game.
