Burnout’s Big Surf Island is full of eggs

Criterion have released details of a raft of hidden gems in their recently released Big Surf Island expansion for Burnout Paradise.

We’ve spent a little time on the island recently here at Attitude Towers and whilst we hadn’t noticed anything in particular (since we spend most of our time driving everywhere at full speed), we’re certainly liking the new space.

Now that Criterion have told us there’s more to Big Surf than meets the eye, we might have to slow down.

Cops and Robbers coming to Paradise City April 30th

Let’s face it, Paradise City is a pretty lawless town.

From April 30th however, Paradise City citizens can breathe a sign of relief and be able to safely walk the streets again, the threat of some fool in a beat-up Carson GT tearing over the horizon and into their children a distant and unhappy memory. The law is coming.

Game Demos have been part of the industry for as long as we can remember and they offer gamers the chance to try out a game without taking any money from their pockets.

Predictions for 2009 (Part I): The Good

Predictions for 2009 (Part I): The Good

So after rolling out of the unmade bed that is Christmas and landing with a thud on the thin end of 2009, we have to do two things. Firstly, we have to take stock. Looking back at 2008, it is clear that us PS3 Attitudees had a great year. With the likes of LBP and MGS4, we can’t surely expect 2009 to be as good.

Can we?

Which brings me nicely onto the second thing we have to do at this time of year; look forward to what the next 12 months will bring us. Brodiesan has already started outlining many of the components making up the raft of games careening toward us with careless abandon in the coming months, but I thought I would take advantage of my shiny new crystal ball.

What’s set to burn our corneas with awesomeness and what is set to underwhelm us to tears? In part one, we take a look at the ‘Good’.
