So yeah, Burnout Paradise is coming out in a few days. I have to say, the Burnout games are my FAVORITE racing games, being that I'm a retard that doesn't enjoy realistic driving sims all that much. Something like Showtime mode, which is basically the Devil's version of Katamari Damacy in which you try to roll your car over as many other cars as inhumanly possible to create the most chaos and damage, really appeals to me.
However, after about a day of gaming on my *FIXED* computer, I found out that the damned thing wasn't actually *FIXED* at all. It's dead. Again. For the THIRD time. Well, technically, even computers can only die once, so I guess the proper term would be -still- dead. Anyway, the point is, I'm tired of dealing with it, so I'm going to commit suicide. I mean... I'm going to just buy some new freakin' RAM, since that seems to be the most logical source of this unkown problem.
I have to say, although this is a hassle that has crippled my PC gaming for about two months so far, I still love PC gaming more than console gaming, and it seems like this problem is most likely due to my own negligence. Besides, nowadays it seems like consoles are crashing almost as much if not more than PCs. Either way, I can't wait to put this problem behind me and log some good, solid hours into cruising around Paradise City.
As for those who haven't really gotten some hands-on time with the game and wonder what I'm talking about when I say "the Devil's version of Katamari Damacy," go ahead and peek at the video below.
Oh yeah, and I think the game might have some racing stuff in there, too. :D Is Burnout realistic? No, of course not. Then again, the same could be said of Quake. Not a realistic shooter by any means, but just like Burnout, its an unrealistic, fast-paced chaos-fest that's a heck of alot of fun to play.
