    Burnout Paradise

    Come one, come all - to the RPS Burnout racing league!

    We're currently meeting once a week or so to burn some rubber, dent some chrome and manically twirl about the place.

    We get up to this sort of thing, but it's more exciting when you're part of it. We squeal, we make inappropriate jokes and we generally have a good time for about an hour a week.


    ADD THESE NAMES TO YOUR BURNOUT FRIENDS LIST: It allows us to invite you to games.
    Darkwingstalker
    Capernatious

    --

    A few other bits and pieces-

    We're currently working on putting together a racing league. This will probably start in in April, if there is still interest. There will be one race a week.

    I am interested to see how legitimately organised multiplayer would turn out.

    I might be up for a bit of racing, though all my SP progress and nice cars are tied to the Xbox 360 version :( - I have, like, four cars on the PC version.

    I'm thegooseking on Origin. And on Steam, but I don't have the game on Steam...

    8PM? That's like 3 in the afternoon for normal people.

    I might be around 830-9 my time, though.

    I didn't even know Burnout Paradise had multiplayer.

    Session went well yesterday - We raced around a little, played some marked man, and did a stack of challenges. Recommended that anyone that wants to join in with us spends an hour or so unlocking cars. Noghri could barely keep pace with us out there, bless him.

    Hey there!

    Are you planning to repeat this anytime soon? I grabbed the game in the recent Steam sale and it's surprisingly fun, so I'd happily join you guys.

    How far should one progress to have a fair chance in multiplayer?

    Timezone is GMT+1, BTW ...

    I'd say try to get your license to either a C or B rank.

    Yeah, to be honest all the cars get quite strong about the D level. so, C would ensure competitiveness. Thinking of running another session soon, but hte best bet is to add Darkwingstalker on steam, and I'll let you know when we're loading up. We tend to play spontaneously.

    I guess I went a little overboard, then. Already got the Class A license over the weekend ... :D

    @ Darkwingstalker: Sent you a PM.

    A is fine, just means you've got a bit more to play around with. They'll probably be a little something going off Wednesday night before I go on holiday :D

    Okay, I'll be playing tomorrow at 7pm GMT.

    I can only fit 8 people, so it's really a case of first come first served.

    I'd love to play, but EA appear to have lost my digital copy. Not pleased.

    I bought a usb hub from a pound shop and it cuts out every 2 seconds for a fraction of a moment, made playing burnout very exciting!

    There were a lot of crazy cars, crazy crashes and lots of screaming. The best part? DW's got it all on camera.

    It was so fun, in fact, that I'll be hosting the same thing next week. Wednesday the 28th of March, at 1900 hours GMT. Just post in the thread if you'll be there or not and I'll try to have you added as a friend before we start crushing our chrome to bits.
    See you then!

    EDIT: In fact, whenever one of you plays Burnout, just add Capernatious as a friend through the ever so easy to use menu system. Good luck!
