Hold up, 11~ year already?
the Remastered servers will still be alive, and AFAIK the remastered isn't terrible.
I like religiously return to Burnout Paradise every few years and I can't grasp that it's been out for that long
Never forget the best part of the game: https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/441/9f97a37d-bafa-4136-92a5-04a500ea960b/image.png

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1rQb0ySAuU I almost always played in offline so this won't affect me, but I always hated how Burnout Paradise PC automatically turned your mic on (not even voice activation, just hot) as soon as you entered Freeburn, because it was an Xbox 360 port and on the 360 if you don't want your mic broadcasting in the game you unplug it from the bottom of the controller. Turning automatic hot voip off requires digging into the menus. I discovered Burnout did this after subjecting a group of randos to my side of a private Skype conversation for five minutes before realizing voip was on (by hearing the others in-game talking). But it's still an end of an era. I think Big Surf Island should've come to PC (before Remastered), because it was such a baller area for stunt driving.
God, it's been 11.5 years since the original Burnout Paradise came out? Time sure flies by really quick. Man, I remember getting Burnout Paradise for the PS3 was I was just a little kid. The Road rage events were my favorite events to play on. I didn't played Burnout Paradise online that often, but it will be missed.
i just want a new burnout game
Burnout Paradise came out on the 22nd of January 2008. MGS4 came out of the 12th of June 2008. Both of these games are 11 years old.
I just want a good one again. https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/129/c8fa10c9-1813-457b-9b6c-98910bb47d01/image.png Oh, right.
It like seriously bugs me that this is referred to as the Burnout Paradise theme song and not Guns N Roses - Paradise City.
Well, there is "Dangerous Driving" by former Criterion devs, but it's Epic launcher only.
Rip, this marks the end of one of, if not the best Arcade racer. I've had literally thousands of hours on the PS3 version. I stayed up late waiting for the new expansions to drop. I made friends off this game. End of an era. We'll never see an arcade racing game this good again.
NGL I had the speakers blasting that song whenever I raced or did showtime moves. That and few Guns N' Roses songs were good picks that burned into my brain for the 3-5 years I played this game on and off. The crashing mechanics was super addicting, making more a hundred different scenarios on how to wipeout.
It doesn't really look the best either
Looks fine to me, and I've watched videos by people, who were not sponsored, saying it plays just like burnout 2-3.
Eeehhhhhh idk it just doesn't look right I mean going from burnout to driving dangerous it just doesn't look good
Dangerous Driving is NOT good. Sure, it has that basic feel of Burnout 2/3, but it's very low budget and the graphics are shit. You're better off just playing Burnout Paradise Remastered.
I'm honestly shocked EA let Paradise's servers live as long as they have (Poor Revenge), but it's still sad to see it happen regardless. Freeburn Online always had me coming back time & time again, and I actually had a few delightful encounters with chatty strangers there too. Still, we got a polished-up re-release that's still going (And if the recent word holds true for the PlayStation 5 and the "neXtBox" follows suit, it's got a lot of living to still do outside of PC, of which Origin & Denuvo is an unappealing combination), so we can still be feeling the heat in an online place. Thanks for the good times Xbox 360 copy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QjxCcwr-jc
I'm going to give it its just dues. Its essentially an small indie game trying to emulate a ex-AAA title with a far larger budget. And I can't fault them for what they accomplished, especially since they had to start from scratch. This a genre that's begging for revival. And to their credit, they are the only ones that have really even bothered pretty much since Paradise came out. Which is fucking shameful on everyone else. But it definitely doesn't seem like Dangerous Driving is finished. Feels very "Alpha/Beta". It needs quite a bit more polish if they want to revive the genre. Physics look weird and lack of music is pretty amateurish, even for an indie title. I don't expect proper licensed music from top artists, the stuff like Burnout 1 and 2 would have been fine if they comissioned out some work. I'm sure there are lots of budding composers that would have been up for it. Hopefully its like Burnout 1, where the concept was pretty much there albeit very roughly, but the second game absolutely curp stomps it in execution. If there is a second game.
I actually played the game and you are right. It's the closest game I've ever played to a Burnout game, but it still doesn't feel quite right, and it's also buggy as all fuck and will constantly make your car crash despite you having done nothing to cause it.
The problem I have with dangerous driving is one, the name sucks, but two, I mainly want another open world game. Burnout 3 was good yes, but I like to be able to fuck off into the distance and do what I want. That is what made Paradise so good. It was seamless, you could do anything from the previous games wherever you wanted to, however you wanted to. The next evolution of burnout, has to be open world. It has to be. The world they created was amazing and a work of love, and art. Menus just don't do it for me, fam.
I've never been a huge fan of driving games but Burnout Paradise was so damn good. I played it pretty much continuously for a month. I loved the sandbox aspect of it. I think what might set it apart is how it taps into the childish joy of smashing toy-brand cars together rather than attempting to present real car brands in an elegant and "serious" manner.
MInecraft will be 10 years old next month. TF2 (and the Orange box for that matter) will be 12 years old in October The Wii U came out in 2012, The PS4 and Xbox One came out 2013, almost 7 years ago now. Time flies when you're having fun.
It looks terrible lol, just because it plays like the older games doesn't mean it's good, it's 2019, should be playing a lot better than that
