    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    So what exactly is it, that you do do?

    So I went on the internet and I found this.

    It looks shockingly similar to DR without the filters though. On RD there's some guy who just ported over textures from DR's levels to D3. There's also someone who's done physics modding for DR, no idea if it's any good, but I guess you can put that physics mod into D3 too. What auto barrel roll software?

    On a completely different note, I'm reinstalling Dirt 3 for some slidey drifty fun, and I'm curious how it must've felt/feel to be on the art team, put all this work into the environments and colors, make everything look really good and well balanced, and then have someone come in and put ****** color graded filters over everything. I mean, this extends well beyond Dirt, and any game that lets you mod these filters out always looks better. Same with Dirt 2, it looks WAY better without filters.

    But there's still 40+gb of other tracks I don't own. And my point remains valid. The day before it was fine, and now there's a 9gb update for something that seemingly only affected single player, and not even something you would have to worry about. It's just bloat and it's becoming common in everything. A lot of games now I don't even bother with because I don't want to download 100gb of poorly space optimized games because they need to jam in skins and DLC I don't own so I can quickly buy it to access something that's already on my PC.

    Well good thing I uninstalled the game like a year ago. I'm sick of trying to launch a game and needing a 10gb update when it was fine yesterday just so I can host content I don't "own" on my PC.

    Did I miss something? Why is there an update, and why so large?

    Signing a deal with EA is like making a deal with the devil. The laundry list of companies they've taken to the cleaners is extensive and in a few cases even shuttered some companies outside EA. I'm going to be optimistic and give CM 2 or 3 games under hellish conditions before EA shutters them or folds them in with the crippled Criterion to work on Need for Speed. EA's website claims 20 studios under it's belt, at least 8 of them are mobile devs or part time support, the rest are questionable as to what they actually do outside the few known names. They've shuttered at least 14 studios.

    Tucson has an annual gem show every February that's been going on straight since 1955 and it's completely cancelled as far as I'm aware. Wouldn't want people out n about buying stuff. though no one probably has money now anyway. The fact that you responded to that with a game on the Ps1 from over 20 years ago that has that feature is pretty great. I'm certainly no game maker, but it's pretty ludicrous that they could do that in every game since the PS1 and CM hasn't ever done it.

    Pretty sure Showdown doesn't have rally. At least, I've beaten the game and I don't remember any.

    I don't like his lispy voice either, but he also physically says a lot of memes that annoys me. Never watched him commentate on races. At least with SlapTrain if you think about it like the car version of the typical surfer bum it's not so bad.

    What insult? I'm frankly getting really fed up with people being insulted for no reason. I don't even care if I did, grow up and get over it. How do people go through life like that? I can only assume you're offended because I said no one knows who he is. His last 20 videos have an average of 2271 views in a range from 156 to 5000 at the peak, minus a WR run with 20k. That's the peak of his views. No one's heard of him outside this forum and maybe people looking at the Dirt leaderboards. Jimmy Broadbent's last 20 videos have an average of 140700 in a range of 72000 to 486000. At Jimmy's worst he's 3.6x more eyeballs than Dgeesio's best. Get over it. It's a simple fact. I never said Dgeesio was a terrible person who deserved to die, I said that marketing favors a larger audience. Stop being offended by simply stating the truth.

    No, I'm being factual. You have a product to sell. Do you sponsor someone with 4 million viewers, or someone with 30 viewers? Which gives you more exposure and in turn more sales? Why do you think SlapTrain and Donut Media are in Dirt 5? They get views. You guys need to grow up.

    That's an oxymoron. The pick the content creators with the most views. That's YouTube/Twitch in a nutshell. I don't think enough people really care enough to follow dirt and watch all the posted videos outside series fans. i.e. I highly doubt CM and the Dirt team are making a big impact either way. Jimmy Broadbent sucks and I personally hate that he's a full grown man literally living in a shed in his parents back yard but has $6000 of sim gear, but he's entertaining. Apparently. Watching some guy do the same race without any commentary or engagement of any sort is really boring. YouTube itself and the community as a whole has transitioned away from quality content in favor of significantly easier solutions. Especially gaming channels, YouTube has been screwing them over big time and some of the biggest guys are just pushing out daily garbage now. It's true. It's marketing. No one sponsors someone that no one's ever heard of.

    Oh, it's definitely some excellent work, I just don't like the way it looks. The split front lip is one of my biggest dislikes. I guess if it's designed for Safari that makes more sense as a rally raid thing. Wow. I just watched that, and man it's boring. I had more excitement watching James May organize wrenches. Does anyone still watch Top Gear? Well duh. It's marketing. The sole intention is to get it to the eyeholes of as many people as possible. No one's heard of you or the rest of the alien squad. You might be more interested in silent world record runs, but the vast majority of people are not and don't compete at that level. I'm not sure we were arguing about it. Nor were we discussing it being in game.
