Burnout Paradise RemasteredHave added another game to my very growing PlayStation 4 library, Burnout Paradise Remastered.  Have been keeping an eye on it very since it came out in March (2018).  Have all most bought it a few time on the online store.  It has been on for a great price at one point.  I wound much rather have a disc games when ever I can.  That way you have it forever.  All so take it to a friends house.  Haven’t given it a try it.  I like that fact it comes with all the DLC.  All of which I never got to try when I bought the game on the PS3.

Burnout_Paradise_RemasteredThere have been a lot of remastered and re-releases this generation of game consoles.  One more add to the list is Burnout Paradise.  This game was released back in 2008.  Bought it back then and played the hell out of it.  It’s a great game.  It had all kinds of DLC which I never got to try.  If are like me this time around, Burnout Paradise Remastered, will have the full game with all the DLC.  They all so say the game will have “high resolution textures” with support for PS4 Pro and the One X.  The best part is the price.  In the states it will be $40.  So I am guessing it will be $60.00 here.  The game will be out March 16, 2018.  You can see the trailer > here or below.

The bike pack for Burnout Paradise is out today.  It was out early in the morning.  So far I only had a few minutes to try it out before I went to work.  They give you two bikes to start.  There is four in total.   They have there own stats too.  From the one bike I tried it was pretty awesome.  I’ll fill you in more once I had a change to check more out.

Well the new Burnout Paradise was going to be out in August but got pushed back till September.  I knew this for a little while now but forgot to blog about it.  The update was called “Davis”.  It is now called the “Bike Pack”.  The name gives it way what the update will have.  Not only will it have bikes it will have night racing was well.  You can read more about it here.  Found this great video showing a bike riding at night.  It’s from a podcast by Crash TV.

It looks like Criterion Games is giving PS3 users custom soundtracks. That is pretty sweet. I do believe this is the first big game to do this. Here is there article talking about it. I think this is a great idea, because I do not like most of the songs that are built into the game. According to there website the update will be in four days for the first patch. That is the new online modes. I kept you posted on when this custom soundtracks is updated.

Burnout Paradise Update

Screen_01resized It looks like Burnout Paradise is getting three new online modes. This info is from the article

” Online Stunt Run

  • This is 8-player simultaneous online Stunt Run – everyone competes for the highest score within the 2 minute time limit and you can play anywhere in Paradise City.
  • An on-screen display shows all player scores, so you can easily see how you’re doing.
  • Earn multipliers for taking each other out but you lose your combo score, if you’re taken down.
  • Eliminated players are greyed out of the scoring area but can exact brutal revenge by chasing after players that have managed to keep their combos alive beyond the time-out.
  • For the first time, you can drive alongside someone as they complete a billion score in Stunt Run – you can absolutely use this mode to try and show off to your friends.

Online Road Rage

  • This is an 8-player online team event.
  • At the start, everyone chooses their team (red or blue).
  • One team of “runners” has to drive to a checkpoint then the finish – they can only see one checkpoint ahead.
  • The other team has to take them down. These guys can see the checkpoint and finish and choose whether to wait and ambush in key locations, shortcut to the action if they get left behind or just follow the pack and cause chaos.

Online Marked Man

  • We randomly choose a “Marked Man”.
  • There’s an intense few moments, while all players wait for the selection to be made – you want to stay close to other players, so you can hit the Marked Man, as soon as he’s selected but far enough away that that you can run like hell if it’s you that’s the Marked Man.
  • The target is selected and a 90 second timer starts – you get 1 point if you survive and 1 point if you take down the Marked Man. After 90 seconds a new Marked Man is selected at random.
  • If you’re the Marked Man, you can’t see the attacking players on the map, your car is a little slower and you don’t get boost.
  • The session usually consists of around 10-12 minutes of intense gameplay depending on the number of players involved. “
