Nevermind waiting for the Paradise demo. The joy of having Burnout 3 servers online again on Tuesday and them still being alive on Wednesday this week (last week they were online only for Tuesday night) prompted me to make this video.

If you've completed the Half Life 2 game Portal then it will make a lot more sense. I adapted a song from that game to Burnout 3. it wasn't easy getting the voice right but I don't have a trained soprano like Half Life did, only some online text talker. If you haven't played Portal the original song is a possible spoiler but not that much.

Anyway i'll put the lyrics at the bottom so you can read along yourself to the tune.

Let me know how this d/l service works, still trying to find a good one.

I used this Piano version of the Stay Alive song for accompaniment:


This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here:
It's hard to overstate.
My satisfaction.
Burnout 3 online.
The servers must not.
Go off. Again.
For, the good, of all, of us.
Except, the ones who time out.

But there's no sense lagging,
Stop uploading those files.
You just keep on boosting,
'til you run out of miles.
And, the takedowns get done,
And, the red team has won.
Now, the blue team is not,
Still alive.

I'm not even angry.
I'm being so, sincere, right now.
Even though, you took me down.
And killed me.
And ruined my lap time.
And then stole my boost, when i, respawned.
I was just about to win.
But that does not matter now.
The important factor.
Is we are back online.
So we can enjoy.
another wonderful time.
I was sad it was gone.
Think of what we'd have done.
If we only would have had.
Burnout 5.

Burnout Paradise.
It will be good, and make a change.
Maybe you'll find, it's more fun,
Than Revenge.
Maybe Takedown too...
Anyway, this game is great.
It's so addictive and fast.
And it's still, fun, driving, even when, you're in last.
Because first place, can just hit a bus, and get passed.
No matter who has won.
All the battling, has been fun.
In the end, we are all.
Still alive.

And believe me. i am.. still alive.
On 3rd 360. but i'm still alive.
Back on the xbox 1. and i'm still alive.
On backup burnout disc. I am. still alive.
When the server's dead. i will be. still alive.
Still alive?
Still alive!

Apart from Japan they have re-announced Burnout 3 for the xbox originals - coming on Monday 14th Jan.


Some of the comments mention they won't buy it because it's got no online. I wonder if they'll change the page on xbox.com again now seeing as the servers have been back on for a couple of weeks now. I hope it's not just a temporary thing.
