News from the News section in the Demo from DJ Atomika:

"Sad news folks, I've been asked to tell you that in preperation for the launch of the full game in a couple of weeks time, the online part of the demo will stop working in about a week. (boo hiss!). Don't worry; all the offline stuff will still work fine.

But the good news is that the full game is out in just under two weeks where you will be able to get back online and Freeburn across the entire Paradise City map (YEAH!)."

BurnoutAholics at Criterion Games!

On Saturday the 6th of October 2007 Xandu and I went to Criterion Games in Guildford to play Burnout Paradise for the weekend.

We drove up to Guildford in the morning full of excited anticipation! It took ages to find a parking spot, and then even longer to find Criterions offices!! But, eventually we made it and Hamish Young let us in and showed us around.  The first thing we saw at the top of the escalators was a Full Size Revenge Racer which had crashed through the wall.
