Honoring Harold Ramis, Burnout Paradise DLC made free today

This week, we lost a special member of nerd and geekfandom that gave us great laughs, creative wits, and the belief in the happy ending in cinema. For many, he was known as Dr. Egon Spengler of the legendary paranormal control team, The Ghostbusters. To the rest of the world, he was Harold Ramis. Harold Ramis was not just a Ghostbuster but a writer, actor, and director, giving us such golden comedy classics such as Stripes. He passed away earlier this week at the age of 69 due to complications from an acute illness.

In the world of acting, movies leave their marks and certain parts of those films, famous as they are, have such timeless aspects to them that remain immortalized in the hearts and minds as many. In this special case, the vehicles of famed movies. In Bullit starring Steve McQueen, it was a 1969 Ford Mustang. In Back to the Future, it is a DeLorean powered by a time machine. In Ghostbusters, it was ECTO-1. This drew inspiration for Criterion Games as they developed DLC for the 2008 racing smash hit, Burnout Paradise.

In loving memory to Harold and in honour of his legend, Criterion Games has made the Legendary Car Pack DLC free for all platforms. They tweeted earlier today,





Burnout Paradise was released in 2008 and had a stellar stream of DLC released until 2011. The legendary car packs also contain inspired rides from Knight Rider and Back to the Future .

If you haven’t already seen this classic film, check out this trailer plucked straight from the 1980’s Also, check out Burnout Paradise, still being played and immensely popular, today on all platforms.

May you fight Zuul in the nearest parallel dimension Harold!

And here is a trailer for Burnout Paradise.

To best describe is that ambition and a willing to do something are two of my strongest traits. They've allowed me to go places and do things. Extraordinary things. Maybe not change the world but make someone feel pretty damn good.

I've been playing video games for as long as I can remember. From the days of the Nintendo SNES and the SEGA Genesis to the PlayStation 3 and the Playstation Vita, gaming has been a big part of me. I like them for their art, creativity, gameplay, and most importantly, FUN! Fun is what matters. What's the point in playing a game if it is not fun? Everything else is secondary.

Now I game on Sony's platforms as a member of the PlayStation Nation. I'm a gaming enthusiasts and I respect other games and their platforms (At least when they are not restricting me)
