Since it's free on Origin:

https://www.origin.com/en-au/store/buy/ ... rd-edition

Who wants to get into a group and do stuff?

I am installing now.
Have played it a couple of times, but never had it as part of my library, happy to do some silly shit if we can :)

Ooo! Went and grabbed this game as soon as I saw this post!

My Origin name is same as my forum name.

Hmm, doesn't look like it wants to work on my PC...
Either Windows 10 or something else is playing up with it...

That's not good Mini. Hope you get it sorted.

Sent a friend request to your Mear. My Origin ID is just my forum ID with AU at the end. My Origin avatar isn't a dog with it's beak in a PAL can though... it's Ted.

One thing I'm not fond of with the last version of this game is how new areas and DLC cars show up in the base game but points you towards the origin store to unlock it. They shouldn't be seen at all. Of course, I didn't have this problem when I last played it on my PS3... all these DLC packs weren't out yet.

Strange, it is running just fine for me with Windows 10. Had a quick go of multiplayer last night when it installed, was a good bit of fun and reminded me very much of Burnout Paradise.

I'll likely have another go tonight and send/accept any friend requests when I log into Origin. I love that even just for the speedwall stuff but hopefully we can get a few of us together for some fun.

Hmm... Might have to go through and reinstall try again... Annoying to say the least...

Most of my speedwall stuff is probably fairly easy to beat (I played it when it was new), but my origin id is the same as my forums

Yes, it seems Criterion will be Criterion and give us the same type of multiplay... not that there's anything wrong with that.

It's a pity they didn't give us Hot Pursuit... I like the roads in that more.

Sent out invites to all those on here.

OK question... Since mine isn't working currently...

How long does it take people to get through the loading screen after it asks you to press any key?

I need a benchmark to work out when mine isn't working...

Also added everyone in this thread... I think...
Managed to beat Makena's time on a single track... was happy with that

Definitely need some MP nights... and agree with above that it feels like Burnout Paradise...

What was funnier was that I best his time by a measly .06 second... But it got me the extra 2000 points...

Also I suck at driving games, so everyone should be able to rebeat that time.
Track was the initial Porsche track too

Will be interesting when we start being competitive over who smashes more billboards and fences.

Burnout Paradise was one of the few PS3 games I got Platinum achievement on. Really enjoyed some of the challenges... which is funny as I find it fun to do achievements in an open world driving game but not in ARPGs. I think the crazy stunts offered in open world driving games lends itself to achievements better.

You were the only person I had in my friends list last night...
So I had to compete against your times or nothing...

Managed to unlock a few different things... Still getting used to the different car unlocks and just "grabbing" a new car as you drive around...
