A GTA Online player has masterfully transformed Rockstar’s open-world sandbox into Burnout 3 with a brilliant video that has since gone viral.

Burnout 3 Takedown is widely considered to be one of the best arcade racing games in existence with its breakneck speeds, crashes, and addicting gameplay. Amusingly, San Andreas also makes for a pretty good place to recreate the game.

Redditor LucasRPDJ used the Rockstar Editor on PC to completely redo the opening of Burnout 3 in GTA V and the results are simply must-see for fans of either series.

Played over the tune ‘Lazy Generation’ by The F-Ups, scenes from Burnout 3’s introduction sequence are sliced together, only with all the action being from GTA V.

After the intro, a screen pops up explaining the rest of the 9-minute film. “This video is a concept of an eventual remake of Burnout 3: Takedown recreated in Grand Theft Auto V,” the text reads. “I added some personal ideas and I thank all of my friends who participated in this video. Enjoy the gameplay and my crash compilation coming in a few seconds.”

From here, we finally get our first look at possible gameplay and Burnout 3 looks amazing in the GTA V engine, even with its unique user interface.

Everything from the racing to Burnout’s iconic crashes are replicated amazingly with buses, expensive cars, and even ambulances blowing up in a blaze of glory.

So I recreated a famous racing game with the Rockstar Editor from gtaonline

The only thing different is that Burnout didn’t have any pedestrians or cops on the side of the road, so that’s something cool only possible in GTA V.

Fans have really enjoyed the Burnout twist to GTA, with the video receiving over 12,000 upvotes on Reddit and over 100 community awards – quite a feat to say the least. It’s definitely a testament to how many people like the crossover.

Given the short video’s success, hopefully there’s a chance we get to play a Burnout game within GTA V or even GTA 6 down the line. Until then, we’ll just keep rewatching the clip.

TFT b-patch 11.4 notes: Olaf nerfs, Nasus & Nidalee buffs

A small update for Teamfight Tactics is here with TFT b-patch 11.4. Riot is finetuning some adjustments after their big changes, with the February 24 patch including nerfs to Olaf, as well as buffs to Nasus and Nidalee.

TFT patch 11.4 drastically shook up the game’s meta. Reroll comps were nerfed into the ground, leading to the rise of Slayers and Vanguard-Mystic Neeko.

However, the changes went a bit too far. With Olaf becoming the number one comp instantly, Riot are keen to draw back his power in a big way. On the other hand, Nasus and Nidalee were hit a bit too hard for the devs’ liking.

TFT b-patch 11.4 includes changes for all of these units, and more.

Olaf AD increased, but Runaan’s change is huge nerf

Olaf has quickly risen to the number one carry in TFT with the big nerfs to all his rivals in TFT patch 11.4. Paired with Runaan’s Hurricane, he could cleave through entire teams 1v9. Now, that interaction is changing.

“Hurricane has proved to be too synergistic with Olaf, making him too powerful with the item, but too weak without it. We’re removing the Hurricane interaction, but will be giving him some AD to compensate and open up other build paths,” TFT dev Rodger ‘Minionsrpeople2’ Caudill said in the amended patch notes.

The loss of the Runaan’s proc on his ultimate makes his damage output significantly weaker. While an increase in AD will help balance out the nerf, Olaf forcers will certainly feel the change.

Nidalee was hit the hardest in TFT patch 11.4, so Riot are giving her a bit of love.

Nasus & Nidalee get compensation buff after early nerfs

On the other side of the equation, after getting nuked in the last update, reroll carries Nasus and Nidalee are getting some assistance. Nasus’ mana is getting decreased so he can cast more readily, while Nidalee’s damage at two and three-star is also up.

The changes may not make either comp S-Tier in the meta, but it’s a handy buff. Talon is also getting a huge bugfix that keeps his mana bar full if a target dies midway through his ability animation.

Quicksilver and Runaan’s bugs have also been squashed in the b-patch. You can find the full TFT b-patch 11.4 notes below, courtesy of Riot.
