Steam Does Black Friday and DLC Deals Windows and Mac Style

While we may not play or review PC games anywhere near as often as we do console or handheld titles, that doesn’t mean that PC gamers don’t deserve some Black Friday love as well. Thankfully, we got word from one of our readers (since you don’t have a username, we can’t name you in the […]

Blur

Blur, yet another carnage related racing game, is the glistening offspring of Burnout and Mario Kart, taking the best traits of each franchises with it.

Well before it introduced the open world of Burnout Paradise, Criterion Games began growing the roots for what would be some the Burnout franchise’s staple features. It got the core arcade style racing and crashing elements down pat in its previous titles, and Burnout 3: Takedown was where it introduced the franchise’s Takedown system, which […]

Burnout Paradise

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 2 Comments

Burnout Paradise is one of the best arcade style racing video games I have ever played. Its open world concept lets you free-roam through a city created for speed, exploration and, even better, smashing stuff. Best of all, the developers keep adding major game changing content to keep the experience fresh, though you may have […]
