    Same here on desktop. Those appear to be the actual images Google is serving, since you can open them in a new tab and zoom in on them.

    Technically correct: the best kind of correct!

    Your FoV setting might be the same for both screenshots, but it’s very obvious that the actual rendered field of view is different between them.

    Don’t worry, he didn’t; I watched the whole video and none of the things @JZStudios says happened actually did, beyond the obvious ‘Ken Block went to New Zealand’. i dunno what people have against Block tbh, he seems like a decent guy.

    The DS21 is all about driving a stage in comfort and luxury. Who cares if other cars are faster? You’re better than those... lesser people.

    It took me a good few weeks when I got my wheel to feel comfortable with it and get back to the pace I had with a controller.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Where is anyone applauding the way DR2 is being handled? Nowhere, is the answer. All people are doing is trying to explain the realities of game development, and how it’s not nearly as simple as some of the, hmm, less nuanced commenters seem to believe. Everyone I’ve seen called a fanboy (or shill or whatever childish insult) has been quite clear on what they’d like to see improved, what they’re not happy with, and so on. Nobody is blindly cheering Codies on and saying everything is perfect. Some people, me included, are saying the game is good, mind you, but once again, that doesn’t mean we think it’s perfect or that we don’t think the bugs need fixing. Again, nuance. It’s quite possible to enjoy something despite its flaws. If anything less than perfection is a problem for you, prepare to be disappointed your whole life.

    You keep saying this but I don’t believe you’ve ever driven over really rough ground at high speed. It’s not at all the smooth locked-to-horizon experience you’re imagining.

    FOV in Dirt Rally 2.0

    Hey it’s good grass. Shame you’re incapable of enjoying it 🙁
  14. Sentiments like this make me think of the guy in this video: ignorant and naive. So they get rid of RaceNet, then what? Where do online time trial times get posted? How do community events get organised? How are leagues/clubs going to work? How is DLC managed? It’s super easy to spout simplistic things like “bin RaceNet” when you’re not the one responsible for managing the consequences.

    I think what people are saying is have some damn nuance. Stop seeing everything in pure black and white. The game is good with some problems of varying seriousness. It does, in fact, work properly for the most part. Yes, a few things don’t, but to say that the game as a whole doesn’t, that’s just ridiculous. It’s perfectly possible to enjoy something while also being aware of and critical of its failings. Nobody is so blinded by their undying love of Codemasters that they claim the game is perfect; we acknowledge the flaws and want them fixed, but we are also enjoying the game enough that we’d recommend it to others, which in essence is a “good review”.

    I'm on a wheel too but I also have an Xbone pad for other games, and it certainly comes in handy for screenshots in DR.

    If we get an Irish rally can we also get a Liam Brennan co-driver DLC? #GoGoGo150UpTheMiddleGoNowForMeBrother

    Interesting remarks on the graphics.  To elaborate on this he says that the graphic design of the game resembles the older Dirt games rather than what we saw in Dirt Rally and I have to say I agree. This does give a bit of 'cartoony look' with more added effects and flare rather than the more clean bare bones look Dirt Rally had.  You say “clean bare bones”, I say “dull and washed-out”. GoPro footage is not representative of real life ? True, but you don't walk around looking at the world with yellow glasses either  ;) No, the atmosphere does that for you when the sun’s low in the sky ?

    WRC7 is pretty good, although I don’t think the stages are as good as everyone seems to think. They look pretty from a distance but the road surface is kinda bland, low-detail and simplistic compared to DR/D4 (and almost certainly DR2).
