So thought's on NFS:Most Wanted By Criterion Games.

Basically Paradise with 'real cars', slightly 'wider' driving space, with a less cartoon look, and lapped races, speedo, moving map, now we just need some sorta boost lock feature to give us a slight Burnout feel? Oh, and Autolog V:2.

So thought's from you, the half a dozen of us left...?

NFS:MW My First Impressions

Yesterday, NFS:MW got it's debut at E3. The trailer looks sweet, music from the Prodigy and action that gets me smiling.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted - Trailer

Need For Speed: Most Wanted - Debut

E3 Excitement

E3 is fast approaching and we are hoping to hear something from Criterion Games from the expo. Today, @GeneralCusster tweeted a teaser:

LA flights and hotel booked for @TheWebsterHoff @SargeSullivan and me.

I hope they all have a lovely time in lalaland! :)

Message just receved from alex ward.

Dear Nicola and Mark,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak to you personally.

To summarise:

The Next Burnout Title...? My perfect Burnout!

So what would I like the next Burnout Title to be like?

What are Criterion Games working on?

The only thing we have heard from them are vague we have something big to announce tweets, but we have rumours of two different possible titles.

Burnout: Rush Hour and Need For Speed: Most Wanted 2

So, what are Criterion Games working on? Could the Wii Burnout be by another developer, like Dominator was? Have Criterion Games permanently abandoned Burnout for the NFS series?

I am eager to learn more about these games, hopefully we will hear some solid announcements soon.

Where does Burnout go from here?

I know I am eagerly awaiting an announcement from Criterion Games, to hear a new Burnout is on its way!

However, I am also painfully aware that the series has not gone in the direction I would have wanted it to go in. And any announcement now will not please ALL BurnoutAholics.

There are now two very different types of Burner. The old skool Burner who thrives in closed track battle racing environments and the new comers who want to pull stunts and explore open worlds.

So where does the series go from here?
