how about sunday or monday

i still need some other burnout buddies. since it's slowly taking me away from my beloved warhawk, i need to get more people on my list. plus we need to get 8 of us so we can complete the online challenges.

Mark Sporto, we hardly knew ye.

Either Sunday or Monday is good for me, I'd probably prefer Monday though.

Burnout Paradise worth it?

I was in Gamestop yesterday and picked up MassEffect for 360, and started that last night. I was about to get burnout paradise for PS3 but I was afraid it may lose its fun... I don't know. An AVS race night sounds intriguing however...

Worth going to pick up at lunch today?

It's true.


I've also got the game and LOVE IT. Anyone thinking about buying this should do so immediately. It's an awesome PS3 experience.

what sets it apart from the previous burnouts, is that it's a completely open world, i've heard it compared to GTA, or true crime, and there are numerous items to find, challenges to complete and, oh yeah, some racing too. what i've enjoyed more than anything else so far is just the exploring aspect of the game. 17.5 hours in and i'm still coming across roads i've never been on. and i only have a meager 37% completion rate, too.

but if you've played the other burnout titles, it's different and it grows on you after a while and at this point i'm loving it. and oh yeah, the online play is AMAZINGLY seemless. to the point where you could accidentally get online and not realize it. your car doesn't stop, you don't leave the game. you just hit the d-pad and you're online. very, very cool.

if you're on the fence, at the very least give it rent. it is darn good!

Monday is great for me. Just let me know what time. I'll probably already be on anyway. If I'm not on your friends, don't hesitate to add me.

End to naked gaming, are you nuts? Everytime I took Matzira out last night my ding-a-ling was going for a ride (that didn't sound right )



This is agreat game, I've only juist begun it, but man do you just get sucked right in. I've unlocked 5 cars so far and I need some more....the online chat is great for two people, but I'm thinking it could get very noisy with 8

actually, it's not that bad w/ 8. i've done that 2x and haven't had any trouble hearing the chatter. i do love the fact it shows who's talking.
and if you're gaming naked, paws, i would strongly discourage the camera!!

so if i'm reading this correctly, i'm currently on hit lists of mulder, paws, the guy who i accidentally pissed off when he started a thread asking if he should buy a ps3 even though he said he was getting one anyway, and now possibly pursuit.
maybe a sticky thread should be posted for those who want to kill matzira!

Easy...I can beat the 3 year old...it's just the 5,7 and 8 year old that give me problems....

On a good note, I will be the only one playing burnout on my account. Now my stats won't be tainted .

I just wanted to add that if I do play with any of you online and see anything that looks remotely similar to a "tea bagging" with that freaking ps3 eye, I will shut down and never play again....never....never, ever ever.
