The next-gen NEEDS a new Burnout.

I could play Burnout Paradise today and it's still fun IMO. Never understood why they just ignored it. Bring back Burnout!

But . . . I want a new Road Rash.

Or a Spy Hunter by Criterion.

Find who ever made the decision to cancel Road Rash. I want his head on my desk by daybreak tomorrow.

Whoever cancelled Road Rash needs to be fired. Road Rash 3D was something special. I still think about this game from time to time and would LOVE to see a next gen version.

No Road Rash......a sad day in gaming indeed.

sad to hear Road rach being cancelled. It would be nice to see them do something besides driving games though.

I'd like to see a next-gen Black if they don't want to do Burnout. Burnout Revenge is still my favorite arcade racer.
stuckinga  +   797d ago
Completely agree. I've been waiting on a new Black for a long time. I think it could give some of the more established FPSs some serious competition. That game was fantastic.
GodGinrai  +   797d ago
I remember that game. it looked amazing back in the day.

im hoping that non-racing title is Black.
Rask  +   797d ago
Black 2 would be awesome..
weirdo  +   797d ago
burnout 2 is my favourite in the series. infinite boost chains on beautiful tracks, bliss
Mr-SellJack  +   797d ago
imo criterion should do more non-racing games more often
edit:just found out it's not Black2

Burn out take down was cool

Please make another next gen Burnout :(, just lose the lame open world stuff, it didn't work right. Burnout 3: Takedown was a killer game!
ian72  +   797d ago
IMO they should stick to what they're good at, and thats racing games,( Burnout Paradise is one of the best openworld racing games of this gen ). Leave Black etc to the developers who make those type of games.

I don't understand your comment.

If Criterion made Black, they obviously make those types of games...

They destroyed nfs series , they didnt listen to us when we were shouting about customization in those series , they made nfs more like burnout and now since burnout paradise was released we've be shouting for a new burnout game , i wonder when they are gona listen to us , they just dont care.
RavageX  +   797d ago
I have to agree. While I loved most of their games, their take on NFS just wasn't right IMO. Hot pursuit was ok, but I never really felt that sense of urgency I had from the other pursuit games...plus there were no damn jumps.

Most Wanted was completely wrong. From the bit I played nothing made me think of the previous game. It felt just like burnout complete with the repair/paint shops.

Kickstarter for RR is brewing.
csreynolds  +   797d ago
Gutted that Criterion won't be making a Black 2. The original was epic.
IQUITN4G  +   797d ago
Those concerned for a Road Rash shouldn't be. The name comes up just too many times for it never to return. Of course we'll get a Road Rash some point
