Burnout Paradise Big Surf Island Pack Coming June 11, 2009

256w ago - Big Surf Island is coming June 11th.. get ready to go racing again with bigger jumps and stunts. And from the looks of the video below, drifting!

To quote: This Summer, the bridge will finally open when we release for download and purchase - Big Surf Island - Burnout Paradise's most-anticipated Premium Downloadable Pack.

The island is roughly the size of Downtown Paradise, but features gameplay unlike any other area in the game.

We're running with the mantra "if you can see it, you can drive it" to introduce a new level of freedom to Burnout Paradise, and the island also features some big air jumps - the largest on the game.



 

THQ Ships Gold-plated Nintendo Wii to the Queen of England

400°
256w ago - The Nintendo Wii has positioned itself as the gaming console for everybody. As it turns out, that includes the Queen of England.

Well, sort of. It's not like Her Royal Highness went down to Wal-Mart and bought one with her summer job savings. Rather, she was given a special version by gaming company THQ.

To quote: Buckingham Palace will be getting a special delivery today as THQ plans to deliver a golden Wii earmarked for the Queen.

The pack will also include a copy of the newly released BIG Family Games, as Philip, Charles and the rest of the royal gang compete for the living room crown.

The publisher hopes the PR stunt will amuse Queen Elizabeth, though we hope the 83-year old monarch doesn't throw her arm out swinging the console's presumably heavier gold-plated remote.

266w ago - Epic Games Unreal Tournament 3 Lead Designer Steve Polge revealed that the long-awaited Unreal Tournament 3 Titan PS3 Pack finally arrives tomorrow, for free!

To quote: "Greedings," everyone. As you may have heard, the new Titan Pack expansion for Unreal Tournament 3 will be available on the PlayStation Store starting tomorrow, and it's completely free.

The Titan Pack's downloadable content includes the gametypes Greed and Betrayal, the namesake Titan mutator, 19 maps, the Link Station and X-Ray Field deployables, the Stinger Turret and Eradicator Cannon weapons, the Stealthbender vehicle, the Slow Field power-up, and characters Kana and Nova.

Speaking of Greed, our guys are having a blast with this addictive new gametype. Greed is a fast-paced, "tug of war" style mode in which you swipe the skulls of fallen players and unload them at the enemy base to score points. Silver skulls are worth a point, gold skulls represent five points, and red skulls are 20 points.

It's common to see players fighting over huge hoards of skulls as the clock winds down. Each team always tries desperately to stop the other from scoring while, at the same time, fighting to survive en...
