DiRTy Gossip

Recommended Posts

Yep, I completely echo what Lee has said. Sorry I haven't been as obvious a presence on here recently but my newborn is keeping me very busy. Suffice to say keep being awesome and have an amazing Christmas!

Thank you for popping in @justbiglee with wishes and thanks for the mention :) and to @KickUp‌ for shaking off his daddy duties to write here! 

I've hugely enjoyed trying to put the DiRTy Gossip pieces together and I can't wait to hear more from DiRTy devs to see if I ever got anything right :D 

From the outside it seems like a challenging time for the team, but I'm sure you'll persevere and make the game we've been hoping for. 

I hope 2015 will only consist of highs and exciting news! Please don't stop dripping Gossip and hinting as that keeps us going and shows that you care for the community of passionate DiRT fans. 

All the best to everyone who writes and reads this thread! 

@justbiglee Will I get my forum name changed as a Christmas gift? :P

Steve, Luke, Michael… Having you guys down this year was great, probably one of my favourite test driver days (I think I’ve perfected the formula now - it ends with DiRTy Love). Everybody on the team loved meeting you, I’ll let you share your story of the day soon.

I'm sure I'm not alone in saying it was an absolute pleasure to be there. There was a lot to absorb (and, typically, most of the questions I had came to me after I left!), but it was great to put faces to so many members of the team and see exactly what it is you have been working on. I'm looking forward to the day we can freely discuss it with the other members of the forum.

PS: Sorry again for smashing that car up so badly: I want another go in it with a controller!

Thank you for an awesome year guys! It has been great to take part in this rather strange gossip thread where we experience constant oscillations between hopes and crushed dreams.

I hope we'll see a lot of gossiping next year, more hopes being realised in a game, and that we finally get to know what that car is...

Merry Christmas and a DiRTy new year from a snowy Sweden!

Not willing to go through 63 pages here (only checking codies once in a while for anything new), so any highlights of what happens in the back room of the Codies garage?

Happy New Year to all the DiRT current and former team members. Thanks for allowing me to visit, not once but twice. It's been such a privilege to see what goes into making a game, and to visit the same place which made my favourite games ever. 

Hope 2015 is a successful year for guys, you certainly deserve it.

Well, here goes: 

I would like to say thanks to those on the DiRT team both current and our 'fallen heroes' for their dedication and passion for the series and rally.  Non of this would exist without our beloved game, all of us on these forums would not have formed this bond, this community.  Just as in real life, rally brings so many cultures together, and from all walks of life, because we all love one thing...  4

I guess that didn't last long, too many views and someone complained or a bot snuffed it out :neutral_face: I have to say that is the most traffic I have seen on anything I have done.  Oh well, I think those that mattered most to me got to see and enjoy it.

Well that is sad realy, i dont see a good reason to block anything like that either.
Hell half the internet could be blocked or deleted because of copyright infrigments if it is so important.

Glad I got to watch it before it got pulled. Fantastic work @gfRally‌, damn shame that more people won't get to see it!

well there was quite a bit that was copyrighted and I understand people wanting to be able to control that, but for something that is 'fan made' I would have hoped there was a little more leniency.  I have been contemplating putting it on youtube or flickr and see what happens.  But I don't want someone knocking at my door or lawyer sending me some letter about being sued.

It's hard to disagree...

If next DiRT game is not released in 2015 I'll go vegetarian for a full month! ;]

A new Dirt or Rally game / sim would be great :) As there is nothing that has come close to a good rally in years. except CM Mcrae  rally, Dirt, but I think it needs a re-think.
