Criterion Offering Burnout Paradise Legendary Cars Free In Harold Ramis’ Memory

This week we mourn the death of writer, actor, and director Harold Ramis. In memory of the man that many will remember as Ghostbuster Egon Spengler, Criterion Games is making the legendary cars for Burnout Paradise free today.

“Harold Ramis was a comedy genius,” the company said via Twitter. “He inspired us. To honour this legend, #BurnoutParadise #LegendaryCars are free today for #Xbox360.”

In that pack of four vehicles is the Manhattan Spirit, which is modeled after the Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1. You’ll also be able to pick up cars resembling the DeLorean from Back to the Future, KITT from Knight Rider, and the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazard.

The pack normally retails for $ 4.99. You can redeem your car pack from the console or the Xbox website.

Our Take
This is a touching gesture, and the sentiment accompanying the news echoes what many have thought and said about Harold Ramis in recent days. He will most certainly be missed.

Get Titanfall for free with new Xbox One bundle

Well this is interesting. Today Microsoft has announced a limited edition bundle to celebrate next months launch of Titanfall. The bundle will include the standard Xbox One plus a digital game code for Titanfall and one month of Xbox Live Gold. The kicker is that the price will be $ 499, which is the current price of the standard console. This is clearly a move to make a dent in the strong PS4 sales which were almost beating Xbox One by 2:1 in the month of January.

One important note, this is not the rumored limited edition that leaked last month. There are no special designs for the console or the controller. Surprise surprise, the release is going to be the same day as Titanfall which is March 11th.

Three different gamers…

From three different countries…

Share one dream…

To become the best DOTA 2 player in the world!

 

On March 19, 2014, Valve is releasing a documentary called Free to Play about the lives of three professional DOTA 2 players.

This film showcases the hardships, struggles and sacrifices these gamers had to go through when they decided to pursue professional gaming.

Though the players have very different backgrounds and grew-up in separate parts of the world, they all share similar lives and issues.

 

In order of trailer appearance:

Clinton “Fear” Loomis – Medford, Oregon

Clinton has always been the underdog but exceeded expectations every time and moved his way up through the ranks and achieved a hard earned spot at the DOTA 2 International. Clinton faced many challenges to get there however, including getting kicked off his home.

 

 

 

 

Benedict “HyHy” Lim – Singapore

Benedict’s prominent gaming career began when he and his teammates represented Singapore in the 2007 Asian Cyber Games. Benedict went on to win the Electronic Sports World Cup the next year and has been a rising force within the DOTA 2 community ever since. In Free to Play,  Benedict’s family discusses how pro gaming hurt his academic career.

 

 

 

Danil “Dendi” Ishutin – L’viv, Ukraine

Danil was a prodigious gamer growing up. He picked up PC gaming at an early age and began building up his gaming skills. Intense piano practice taught him excellent hand-eye coordination, which allowed him to excel at local tournaments, even against those well beyond his years.

 

 

 

Learn more about Free to Play in the trailer below and catch a small glimpse into the interesting lives of these three gamers.

 

An advanced screening of Free to Play along with a live Q&A session will be held on March 18 at the Castro Theater in San Francisco, CA.
