Re: Burnout Paradise Bikes?

Only seven and a half years late - but I'm loving Burnout Paradise!

Just downloaded the Complete Edition from PSN (well, a few months ago but only just got round to playing it). The gameplay is amazing, and the graphics still look good.

Very, very addictive.

They've already announced that....same price! Apparently because they threw away all the machine moulds so had to retool everything....

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

Sort of vinyl related - but I have just seen that Technics are releasing new models of their infamous SL 1200 range - it's called the SL 1200 G. It's good to know that they have put it back into production. Of course - it will be expensive - so I'd recommend getting an earlier model off of Ebay or ...

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

It all depends on how well the master is cut, and the quality of the raw materials. The colour doesn't really matter.

The label Fruits De Mer releases everything on coloured vinyl, and the sound quality on their records is second to none.

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

That's a can of worms! Basically....picture discs sound crap. There's nothing to be done about it, the vinyl is so thin because of the image samdwiched in the middle that it's impossible to get a really good sound. As for coloured vinyl....well. It depends on so many factors that there's no hard and...

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

It's usually limited represses on coloured vinyl or picture disc, box sets, that kind of thing.

New music is an RSD rarity nowadays, although I did pick up a PiL live album last year which was previously only on CD, and Metallica released a cassette of their first demo tape.

Re: PS3 Gaming is great, get on board yo

I played the PS4 remaster, and I loved it. Only the second game I've ever Platinum-ed, the first being Assassin's Creed II, so it's in esteemed company.
