The bikes of Burnout Paradise

The bikes of Burnout Paradise

EA and Criterion are working hard on the new update of Burnout Paradise, and here are some new and quite pretty images of the motorbikes that will be available. Also note that the game will soon be entirely downloadable from the PSN of the Playstation 3, which is nothing less than a historical premiere in the world of game consoles.

Nope, even worse. The drivers disappear while the bike crashes because they wanted to "keep the game accessible to all ages." Maybe they magically teleport to safely land on a bed of feathers.

Lame is right. Hopefully they'll get it right in their next game.

Well you can't change the rating of a game once you add DLC to it...makes perfect sense. Also, that thing about offering a current-gen game for download off the PSN is really cool. I hope XBL does something like that in the future.

And lighten up, free DLC with a whole new TYPE of vehicle. The people working on this game are very nice :)

Wow free DLC of this size and still people aren't happy, guess you cant please all the people all the time.

And who cares the rider disappears when you crash, if you want to see mangled bodies go watch a Tarantino film, this is just an arcade racing game.

thing is, the cars don't have drivers. so why have the bikes?

Just because something is free doesn't mean that we should automaticly praise it. Burnout has always been about really fast arcade style races and CRASHES. It's not about wanting to see mangled bodies, it's just the fact that it's what would happen if you crashed on a motorcycle.

That's a rediculous statement. Back in the days of the Sega Genesis that might have mattered when windows weren't transparent, but with modern detailed graphics and visible interiors it's just unacceptable to leave something like that out.

I know. It was just a joke.
