    As I predicted, I did have a car by the today (23rd) (bought it on Saturday, insurance started today (23rd))

    Also as predicted, I have Uni today, and if I didn't, there's something else I'd be having to do, so I still wouldn't be able or allowed to come over.

    @evilsmurf @Rallycameraman @RallyDriven @GentleNameMVB @justbiglee @ThierryNeuville , have fun, you guys!

    @anyone-who-didn't-get-to-go hopefully our wait won't be too long now... looking forward to August.
    Has august been confirmed? 
    No it's just gossip, and I don't think the exact release date would be known already half a year before release.
    True, but we should at least get something by then. Unless 128 means something else, of course, but still, looking forward to some real info (and perhaps a demo/beta?)
    I'm still hoping that 128 is May 1st!
    You thinking about the DiRT 3 May release theory? do you know which month DiRT 1 & 2 were released?
    If my maths are right, May 1st is the 128th day of the year!

    (and DiRT 2 was released 10th September 2009, DiRT 3 was 24th May 2011).
    Guy's, I finally found out about the enigma that is "128" during my day with the DiRT team...But the NDA is killing me man.

  2. Tried my best to get @justbiglee to spill the beans but he was more interested in teasing me :)

    I did make him crash though...so karma and all that ;)

    But now you are setup at home on your pc you should get some Dirt2 time in with me and @TURBODEVIN19 always good fun.

  3. Just finished a run through of Colin McRae 3 and discovered a few things that would be cool in the next game.
    1. I like that once you finish the stage you only see the time's of the people ahead of you in the road order.
    2. The weather effects are cool, the thunder and lighting in Japan especially are awesome.
    3. The different stage surfaces and the tyre's you pick can make a huge difference.
    4. Rally Japan! Bring it back, it's awesome.

    Off to play through 2005 now, see if I find anything else.

  4. So I've been hanging round these forums for around a year, don't post much as I would only be reiterating the post's of others and I'm lazy :)  but seeing as you would like our opinion on early access (or payed beta?)  I'll drop my 2 cents worth in.

    First off would it be a free early access with a random selection/first come or would it be payed access? Assuming it would be payed how much would it be?
     Personally I have always joined in the early access and mostly had to pay (or pre order) to get in, I could list all the games and how much it cost for each but that would take far to long, on average it's been around £40-£50 to get my hands on the game and I'm happy to pay that for a sneak peek and help mold the game with constructive feed back.
    So I'll list some pros and cons for early access as I see it.


    1. You get a cash boost in sales.

    2. Media attention, gets people taking about your game

    3. We break your game faster and in ways you would never think off allowing you to fix it before full release.

    4. More feed back from the people who want your game, This could also be in the cons list as some people are... let's say not "nice" :) (I remember the Grid forums once autosport was released)


    1. Less cash later, If we already have your game we don't need to purchase it a second time (although if it's good I will get it for another platform = more people for me to destroy online :) )

    2. Console gamers will cry. My argument to them, Forsa, Granturismo, Destiny...I could go on.

    3. People are stupid. Their will always be the people who buy into early access and complain about a buggy, broken, feature light and lack of content game without realising they are not buying a complete game to begin with. You just can't plan for stupid.

    4. Point 3 might also lead to a bad first impression of your game by a small minority.

    So that's 4 for and 4 against, I think I have tried to be objective and personally if you did early access I would buy into it and be very happy.
    That said... I would also be a little deflated at the full release as I would know a lot of the surprises already, but I'm sure (like accetto corsa) you could hold some things back to surprise us with or add more content later as DLC? but that's a whole other can of worms...
