I don't understand the hate for Crash. It's a live arcade game, and is designed as such. It seems some people think this is why Paradise 2 doesn't exist or something.
 
 In fact, it looks like if it were up to Criterion, there will never be a new Paradise, but something different. Can't wait to see what the next Burnout game will be.

So was all of Crash built using XNA or just when they were testing it? If the former, there's potential for it to be ported to Windows Phone 7.

The reason why there's hate is that it's a spin-off, and not a full on new Burnout game. Most likely a new big Burnout game is coming, but there's been no word of it so people are impatient.

Nothing of any real interest there. I wonder. If EA dies what would happen to Bioware? Would those guys go off on their own again under a new name, or would they have to get absorbed by whatever bought EA?

Burnout Crash definitely isn't for me. Like I said in another thread, this just makes me want to go back and play Revenge instead. And considering it's on XBL Games on Demand for $20, I'll probably do just that.

Someone's over reacting? There was nothing of any interest to me shown in the video to comment on, and the entire video was basically just Jeff and Brad saying that there was nothing of any interest  to show or talk about ether. So rather then just say "Well that was a waste of 7 minutes" and leave it at that, the thought popped into my head about what would become of Bioware should EA go away. Bioware is pretty autonomous within the company as far as I can tell, so I wondered what would happen to them should EA ever get into the position where it had to sell itself off.

You think EA is going under and going to take bioware with it after watching this video. I'd call that overreacting. 
Then you flipped the fuck out after I said "no need to overreact" So I think you got overreacting down to a science.

Am I mistaken or is that music halfway through the video the same music that Gamespot uses on their videos?

Also I can see why they didn't showcase these games at E3. That Burnout game should not use Kinect. That is just so forced.

DUDE that Criterion guy is my new favourite interviewee. He sold me on not only the game but the company. I cant wait for anther burnout game. That company helped make Need for Speed what it is now i will give them my money at least a few more times.

What kind of a dimwitted moron would you have to be to want to play Burnout Crash with the Kinect. Seriously. That's the worst use of Kinect I've ever seen, and the Kinect library is filled with bad uses.

Really? You got all that from my first post? Wow... You want my exact line of thinking when I made that post?
 
  1. Well that video sure was boring. Wish I had have done something else instead of waste 7 minutes watching that.
  2. Weird that a company as big as EA wouldn't have more games to show at a privat event where they no doubt spent a lot of money flying people out to.
  3. I guess they must be putting a lot of focus and resources behind a couple of their big games (ie. TOR/BF3) so it makes sense that they wouldn't have all that much else to show given that they said at the start this was supposed to be their B games.
  4. Man, it would really suck if those games bombed on them if they really are riding on them going huge. It might even be enough to make the company go under.
  5. If they did go under, I wonder what would happen to Bioware? They are huge part of EA now, but since they are pretty much left to their own devices. I wonder if they would just pull out of EA and go back to being independent? I would hate to see them churning out yearly games under a company like Activison.
  6. HEY! I bet that might make some interesting conversation in the comments section of this video! Might as well give it a go. Worst that can happen is no one reply's.


Apparently that was me flipping out, screaming at my computer and predicting the down fall of EA... You guys really need to calm the hell down and stop reading into things that are just not there.

Not sure what to think of Burnout Crash. Not exactly what I was looking for in a crash mode. Certainly don't like the top down view the game as. Wait and see I guess.
