    Real nice. I'm questioning if I've posted anything of a similar length. I mean, not including a bunch of quotes, or Porkhammers slightly amusing Bruce Willis picture. Not my fault he can't take a joke. Besides, that co-driver deserved it. Also, I don't think I've 100% anything, not in terms of "achievements" because they don't do anything in-game.

    I'm a tester. Mine was 9gb. I complained about it.

    Yeah, I bet it doesn't even have any other ridiculous BS disciplines. Just all rally.

    Oh look, Mr. The Block sabotages his own race, just so he could ruin a competitors position and ensure he doesn't end in last, which he inevitably would've otherwise.

    In other news, Mr. The Block this week nearly ran over his camera crew on vacation. I'd link the video, but most of it is just wakeboarding. Just imagine him getting bored and the incurable urge to kill someone overtakes him.

    Throttle control is a universal problem in this game that I've talked about in our secret place. Apparently it confuses the **** out of people when I say the first 40% of throttle input is completely disregarded, and then after that it acts like an on/off switch. I have... 10 racing games currently installed on my PC, including Assetto Corsa, BeamNG, Dirt 2, Flatout 2, Grid 2, Grid Autosport, Project Cars 2, and The Crew. I have at least 5 other racing games currently not installed, including Dirt Rally 1, Dirt3, Dirt 4, GTR2/Race07 and all of it's DLC, Project Cars 1, F1... 2015 I think, and DR2 is the only one with throttle that acts like a binary switch at the 50% input. That makes it not very good in my opinion. The BMW around Dirtfish was just like "Grip? What's that?" and spun in circles. I can drift fairly reliably in most other games, but I have no throttle control in this. I didn't drive it on tracks, just scooted around Dirtfish, but it refused to grip. The complete lack of throttle control doesn't help. NO! This car is great, you shut up! Tons of grip!

    ehh. Never really been a big fan of online in racing games, funny enough. Never been competitive in terms of attitude. I'd much rather co-op things.

    Do the community events put you on tracks you don't own? Does it let you MP on tracks you don't own? Does this game even have MP rally? Entirely unrelated, but I just realized your rig consists of over $1000 worth of equipment, with a $50 wheel. Which I find interesting.

    I'm annoyed by getting notifications that people disliked something.

    I'm a bit annoyed that I discovered the game updated itself with 9.2gb. I assume that's for the Greece location and the extra cars that I haven't bought. I love being required to house content I can't access on my hard drive. Especially having to download it before hand. Also why I don't like War Thunder. Every update I have to download gigabytes of planes, boats, and tanks I'll never use, not to mention the ones in higher tiers and from other countries that are locked. But at least in that I might see some of those DLC models in game. I'm never going to see Greece, despite it being the only location I actually wanted.

    I just played through Fez. Ah, Wikipedia, a publicly changeable source of information taken as fact at face value. CM can't handle people making bad assumptions about the title. It's not disingenuous, and to think so marks you a fool. DiRT Rally is a brand to mark it as a different type of product compared to the main DiRT series. It doesn't include Gymkhana, buggies, or trophy trucks and focuses on a more realistic presentation.

    Psh, it's in DiRT. Just played it on the PS3.

    Honestly, with how the game handles, that'd be pretty awesome. It really is the fastest way to get super comfortable with car control. No... they haven't guessed correctly, or no you can't say?

    DR1 seemed to do the alcantara dash better. Textures as a whole are better...

    That too. It was the same sprite in the same location every lap.

    Gran Turismo 4 did it. Fun part is, they expect you to be going fast, so if you just crawl through the sprites very jittery just slowly move out of the way.

    K. Don't know what punters or console warriors are, but whatever. FM7 also had a ****-tastic launch with adding in a bunch of stuff no one liked, wanted, or asked for. Not that sales figures have any relevance to anything I said.

    Are you trying to say it would be conflicting interests? I don't think so. Far as I know NRX is basically just Pastrami trying to have a good time. There's no reason that either would object to the other. Red Bull and Monster? I mean, Monster is a sponsor of WRX. I suppose I could maybe see it, but... It'd still be weird. I don't think Monster is a sponsor of DR2, and they actually seem to be pretty friendly, and I've seen a lot of crossover action sports stuff. Yokohama and Cooper? Only if the advertisements are around the track. Even then they could just skip one or the other. I guess the question is who owns the rights to the track, since I think was Mr. Sandwich that designed it and earned the funding for it. Edit* *Still can't quote other posts in edits* "It is still Marklund you know 😛 He has crashed quite some cars as well. " Impossible. Only the Block crashes cars.

    Seriously, how hard would it be to license this for the game? That's odd. It's clearly damaged, yet it doesn't look like a Ford...

    Yep. Meanwhile Forza has surpassed their car count, and probably track count, after creating all of their assets from scratch after the switch to the new gen. Not to mention the constant improvements to everything during the last gen. They also don't release disappointing products every 6 years.

    Pretty sure Gran Turismo was still using PS2 assets until like GT6. Yep. GT5 at least had 80% of it's roster come straight from the PS2. Fantastic.

    *Cough* Another false equivalence. The price hasn't changed, but they sell on average significantly more more units. Publishers do predatory practices to gather more money. They'd still function without doing so, but their growth in the stock market might stagnate, which is eventually inevitable anyways. They're not happy making billions, they want trillions.

    In other news, this week Mr. Blockhead beats the **** out of everyone else on the track, loses, and then blames it on tire punctures. On a completely unrelated note, how hard would it be for CM to give Pastrami a chat and secure the Nitro circuit license?

    Interesting. After Dirt Rally I retroactively went back and have now played the entire Dirt series, along with the entire Grid series. I can only play Dirt 1 on PS3, and my biggest issue with it. Crappy PS3 controller and 720p on a single monitor. Ew. I'll give the reworked locations a slide on this game. They're reworked and not just a straight port with new models, terrain, and textures. If they're still paid DLC in DR3 or whatever, I'll be upset. They're designed to not really need licenses from what I understand, and most racing games add more content with each iteration. If CM has such a hard time keeping vehicle licenses for more than a single game, they should at least be able to keep using their locations to add to the roster.
