    Pretty much. Dirtfish was the most fun part of D4 and I only put 8 hours in that game. And that version has more obstacles.

    It's weird that they got the license for D4, but didn't actually do the full compound. And now that they removed the other stuff it's kind of just a large parking lot.

    Well, like I said, it's literally the same thing from D4, but they removed the old D3 assets. Once again it falls onto user made content is something they can't control. They only police vulgarities, just as an in-house rule but they don't have to.

    It was in the back of a van and would only spawn sometimes.

    Well Dirtfish is fun, but it is the same thing as in D4, so quite limited. Still fun to do sick slides and donuts in and out of the warehouse and around the heli pad. Also removed the Dirt 3 assets, most notably the digger. I get that this is more "serious" or whatever, but with the kinds of RX tracks Mr. Pastrami makes some jumps wouldn't be bad. Or maybe something of interest in the big empty area next to the warehouse.

    Woo! Get ready boys, 6 total sales incoming! Ah. I love having to download updates for things I'll never use. Is it at least in the same "game?" Assetto Corsa and Project Cars both show up under Steams "I'm going to force you to have a VR tag, despite you not owning VR and not give a way to delete or disable it" category. Did... Did you just have fun? Good god sir, have you gone mad!? We will not accept this tomfoolery in our presence. I beg your leave at once! Good day sir! It's more like a set from some weird 90's TV spooky mystery show.

    Messing around at Battersea in D3 pretty quickly got me to reliably do sick high speed handbrake turns into donuts around light poles. I still argue it's be fun to have gymkhana back, but keep it as a separate career path like they're doing now. You're not forced to randomly do rally, then RX, then hillclimb, then gymkhana. And if you aren't interested in gymkhana or haven't practiced those events are a real *****. Well, Dirtfish was kind of limited and didn't have any of the actual "tracks" outside of maybe a bit vague cone track.

    Huh... that's weird. That doesn't look like Mr. Blocks car, and the only thing that broke was a bumper.

    Oh. Never actually been much of a fan of top down racing. Dangerous Driving is so far up Burnout 3's butt that it forgot to do anything interesting like polish the game. It also has that default UE4 look I hate. Apparently the controls aren't very tight, there's no real destruction to the cars, and since it's apparently such an indie title, they couldn't manage to find any free music or create a few tracks of their own, so there's just literally no music whatsoever in the game. Wow, that first one's Steam video nearly gave me a headache from the audio. The Dirt Rally one is a shrunk down version, so having the complete thing in BeamNG is pretty cool. The guy said he made it from topological data and Google street view, so it's relatively accurate. There's also... Road America or Atlanta... I forget. I wish more laser scanned tracks and stuff would be put in Beam. But the cool thing about Beam (Which I'm not sure Dirt did) is that the altitude actually affects the air density so you have less downforce and less power at the top. They just need to work more on brake and tire thermals. Also, @PJTierney Have you seen Dirtfish? I already asked, but is it any different to Dirt 4?

    Any time someone mentions a not "hardcore" sim racing game it's met with venom. Even though a lot of people are wanting a new arcade racer there's none being made. Well, none that are any good anyways. The NFS reboots and The Crew are not really doing that well for a combination of lack of good content and poor controls. I'd love for a new Burnout game to exist.

    I made another one...

    Anyone interested in pixel arty cars? Shout out to whoever took the picture I copied. And another WIP I started first, but didn't like doing pixel gradients. I was bored so I started it, but now it's basically just work.

    Very interesting. I had seen the ones in Burnout before, and thought it very strange that a British based company would plaster their world with US politics. I'm also not in any of those states, so I wonder if maybe I just saw it online somewhere... Still, based on that link it claims Obama's campaign approached them. I'd still think they'd have to "buy out" the competitors, like Diesel jeans. Wonder how much it cost. Oh. On February 22, 2008, the New York Times reported for the period through January 31, 2008, with Hillary Clinton's campaign spending $106 million, Barack Obama's campaign spending $115 million and John McCain's committee $41 million. Sounds about right for EA. Anyways, politics averted.

    Huh, seems like they should also allow the Audi red, but whatever. It's interesting that in films and TV, the companies pay them for product placement, but in games it seems to be the other way around. Unless it's Mountain Dew. Oh, and Energizer in Alan Wake that died out because they made the batteries die almost instantly when you them, so the DLC was generic batteries. Or Barack Obama and EA. I remember seeing the billboards in Burnout Paradise which I always thought was... poor, but apparently "During the 2008 presidential campaign, a number of 'vote for Obama' ads were unsubtly inserted into 18 EA game titles, such as NBA Live 08, Burnout Paradise, Nascar 09, Need For Speed: Carbon, Need For Speed: Pro Street, NFL on Tour, NHL 09, Skate, and even Guitar Hero." Something seems odd to me how a man with such meager income can get a company as large as EA to put his constipated political advertisements so prominently in so many games, but ehh..... politics.

    Didn't Dirt 4 have a bunch of side things to do in dirtfish? Is it the same?

    Yes, I am ashamed to admit that I am 12 years badly. I hope one day I can become 12 years old goodly. There's also never been anything wrong with anything the Italians have ever manufactured, except for guns, planes, cars, motorcycles, hell even the French are better. Well, they made better planes for a period of time. There's a good reason that people always say "If you want straight forward functionality and reliability, you buy Italian!" I also absolutely adore the sheer amount of vitriol for Mr. Block. Ignorant about what? I don't know, but it's funny. Defending him? You must've missed my earlier posts about him. Clown? Eh, he's not that funny. More like the depressed clown that would show up in the Sims. Sure they look good, but they only increased in reliability once the Germans got hold of them, or they started copying the Germans. On an unrelated note, @Steverex what kind of camera are you using? Would be beneficial to try and lower the shutter speed if possible, or try and follow the car a bit so they aren't as blurry.

    Dirt 2 and 3 have aged very well, what are you talking about? And you don't need Mr. Talent-less to destroy a Lancia, the Italian engineering will do that all on it's own.

    This week Mr. The Block shills for his Ford sponsorship and steals a mans car from his shed.

    I was self referencing to when stutterbstetst said it was an ugly car and I said it looks like a frog. Otherwise it's basically just a project from view. The usable resolution along with total layer count has increased significantly. The original Forza I think was only something like 100 layers per panel and the "texel" resolution was pretty low so things were blurry, especially if they were angled. Now I'm using pixel accuracy on a 4k tv and its got like 3000 layers per panel. Also fun fact, that' my buddys Xbox since I have PC and PS4, and he just walked in when I had the words "Daddy love" done. He doesn't get the reference.

    DiRTy Gossip

    Good god. Here's something completely different. In a bit of self reference... I'm not very good with the Forza editor, and I don't know how to make it look more "froggy." I still enjoy it though. Hmm, that last picture is kind of blurry, but I do like the rather annoyed looking Vipers.

    I... I believe you have my stapler... It doesn't bind up as much. Mandatory fun fact about Swingline being forced to produce red staplers after that movie due to high demand.

    That's from Skyrex though, not CM. All they did was link it.

    I'm not saying they aren't, after all I have a tiny amount of back room access. But it's one thing to not talk about cars you're trying to license because they might not happen, and another to fix things but not mention that they're being fixed. The patch notes are usually pretty vague too, and some people have been trying to figure out what's ghosted in since there's changes that aren't mentioned in the patch notes. It's just weird.

    VR confirmed for 1.7. Those 4 people will be happy, but probably not actually. The more... hmm, frustrating thing is like before the FFB update there was a lot of complaints about it, and it finally released, but there was very little confirmation as to if it was happening at all. I don't think anyone is asking for specific release dates of fixes and stuff, but most developers at least say "Hey we're working on fixing this bug." Not that this game is as disastrous as the launch of No Mans Sky, but going radio silent about potential fixes and additions just make people assume the game is dead and isn't going to be fixed. Like Nier Automata that I'm pretty sure still requires a community mod that only works on Win10 to get full screen to actually work.
