    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I would say it's a bit more than just a jacked up Porsche... The amount of work that has been done is quite a thing, and on a technical level that car looks marvelous. It is true that it's a lot more of a Raid car than a Rally car but then again, Porsche won the Dakar so it's not something completely alien from their background. That said it still doesn't make any sense to exist, but it's completely mad and I'm glad that it does!

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I didn't check this for a bit and when I come back I find a debate about center pivot physics and an AD for bikers only cruises. I guess this topic really NEVER does disappoint. Of all the paintings in history, you chose the one that most famously was altered and revised constantly by his author until his death... I am not a huge fan of the theory "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", sorry. I believe there is always room for improvement, expecially in a field such as racing games development where simplicity isn't really a good thing.
  3. That challenge is also bugged... I have two out of three fastest laps already counted, I did a three laps race with Sergio Perez yesterday, won, did the fastest lap on lap 3 and crossed the line on 0% battery. I did not get the Monza achievement and neither the Battery one. I play on PS4 with a pad but I did not get some achievements even while playing with a wheel.
  4. I can confirm this is not exclusive to PC as I tried to do the same, getting pole position and win in Mexico with George Russell, multiple times on PS4 and I never got the challenges. I also finished a race with 0% battery multiple times but that one didn't pop either, so it's not exclusive to Week 8. I am sure I was online and connected because I got the due XP for completing a race but I never got the XP for the challenges.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    This isn't much of a Gossip, but I just wanted to really say thank you to the devs of this game. For context, my good old pedal set from the Thrustmaster T300 recently did a Maverick Viñales: the brake pedal snapped in half as I was approaching Turn 1 in Hungary on F1 2020, therefore I've had to go back to my roots and play all racing games with a pad. To my surprise, the only game which allows me to drive without making an utter fool of myself is the one that also offer the most stuff I could crash into: DiRT Rally 2.0 I mean, in all the circuit racing games the worst thing I could manage to crash into is a barrier or my teammate, and I inevitably crash into one of them EACH RACE. DiRT, on the other hand, gives me a plethora of hard stuff to bend my car around, and still the gamepad controls are so good that I don't. Well, I don't crash more than I did with the wheel, that is. This is all to say, thank you guys❤️

    Okay, great to know. And since the Mk2 has the proper audio, great to hear too...

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The Mk.8 Fiesta has always been a weird one for me, at least in its Rally versions... sometimes I really like them, sometimes I feel like there's something not quite right. Might be because I absolutely loved the Mk.7 Fiesta WRC post-facelift. Although I have to say, the new Fiesta R5 looks a lot better than the current Fiesta WRC, might be the headlights. I have a question though, do I need to have Playstation Plus to access the World Series?

    I find the Polish landscape to tear up pretty much anything I drive there. Expecially front bumpers and radiators, but doors too sometimes

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    The current cars are MAD and I absolutely love them, I was mainly talking about the current state of the Championship. We must also consider that COVID-19 will surely not do well to the finances of teams and that in 2022 the current cars will be replaced by Rally1 cars that are supposed to be more economical but also less advanced.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Oh my, I had actually forgotten how it felt to read good news in 2020... Glad Codies finally get the recognition they deserve, the best rally games developers really deserve a shot at WRC! WRC isn't in its best state right now but there will be a rule change in 2022 with the hybrids coming in and potentially more manufacturers interested in the series (one can hope). As for the title, I think that DiRT Rally is actually a better brand name than WRC in rally games so I guess they'll keep it in some sort of way because it is more appealing. After all, the two best rally games of the decade were called DiRT Rally.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Exactly. DiRT Rally 2.0 is by far the best rally game I've ever played, but it isn't exactly pick-up-and-play. On the other hand, older DiRT games like 2/3 are a lot of fun with friends because they're immensely easier to play (mainly due to the wider and easier stages I'd say) and everyone can have fun.

    Introducing DiRT Rollers

    I'm very disappointed. How are we expected to tackle stages that are going uphill with marbles? All DiRT games don't have enough stages, if we can only race downhill the mileage is SOOO poor... No buy 4 me. Also, will it have VR? We're in 2020, it is UNACCEPTABLE that you would release such a game without giving the players a fully immersive experience. I NEED to be able to wear a headset while playing, rolling along the marble until I get seasick on my couch!

    Scotland has immediately taken the spot of wrecking yard from Finland, at least for me. The margin for error in those stages is NON-EXISTENT. It must be so satisfying to get a stage right, I imagine (I have no clue because I keep sending it into a tree)

    Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack

    Okay, driving in Scotland is BEYOND scary. There are so many things I can crash into that my mind gets confused and can't choose which is the most dangerous and imminent obstacle into which I could crash. Needless to say, this actually does cause me to crash into the nearest log/ditch/rock/tree/log-pile available. And there are A LOT in those stages...

    17,570 GB update will be quickly downloaded by my connection in 56 hours approximately. I love my internet connection. It still somehow manages to work when I'm watching lessons online even though I'm falling asleep, but the Impreza S4 it can't download.
