On another note:  looks so far like the Bandai Namco plan for the DVD distribution will be zip for North American vendors again.
What does this mean? No DVDs in the USA?

Don't know yet, but that's how the distribution deal with Bandai Namco has worked in the past, necessitating US DVD buyers ordering from overseas vendors.

Bandai Namco's deal with Codemasters has expired..
Codemasters signed a new publishing deal last month with Koch-Media for global distribution, including the Americas, for 2016 instead.

Thanks!  I'll have to check that out. :)

Edit: A Google translation of the 12 December 2015 press release from Koch Media - <DiRT Rally appear on April 5, 2016 for consoles, Steam release today, PC-box this month.>

So far I have no idea what the "PC-box" includes - just a download key, or an installation DVD as well; or who and where are the vendors.

Just a little note by going all the way back to launch day, which we might all have forgotten about.
Cars with the full set of headlights when it's not night time.
This advanced technology seems to have been lost to the sands of time.




Two days ago I was looking at some wallpapers and games I realized this.

I'll be picking it up on PS4 also, feel free to add me once you get one. My id is in my sig.
I will do!  In fact I'm sure you are already on my contact list for PS3? 

IGN review for DiRT Rally now up...

..."Dirt Rally is a brilliant looking and incredible sounding racing sim that feels absolutely outstanding, but it won’t tolerate the timid."

Congrats to those that 'won' recognition yesterday!  That was fun to hear.  Also to @evilsmurf , I didn't realize how much you have been doing to fill in for Lee, maybe you will have a future doing this paid :)

Gossip?  I didn't really hear anything regarding new content (new liveries?) or DLC between now and April, so I'm not going to hold my breath or have any hopes.  

It was interesting to hear about @kickup messing around with a Porsche in DR, sounds like a curiosity for them to try.  He pretty much shot down the possibility of having that car in any game because of the cost of licensing.  

So I guess we could start pondering the next title

Yeah, you have to imagine that 'mocking up' the cars they can't have is something fun to do.

I think the wrong questions were asked to get more info out, but it's good that Paul mentioned there were some very exciting things coming in the new year based upon his inbox contents of late :)

I just listened to the show again to see if I missed any details or gossip. I'm having to play it at the lowest quality (because the internet at work is awful!), I can't quite make out what @KickUp says after he mentions my award: it sounds like "you've got a copy you've already got waiting for you. Congratulations"? Am I hearing that right?

It was stuttering on youtube a lot, I got about half way and stopped.  It just got really bad, that I couldn't make out portions of the conversation.  It was also screwed up with the screen ratio too.  

I think they should set up 2 recording methods.  1 for archive, youtube and one that is live streamed.  Probably with 2 different cameras and computers.  The last couple of live streams have been kind of messed up in some way.  

I do appreciate their efforts doing this, but for me, I'm going to just watch here for the synopsis.

Use the link from a page or so back, to the twitch historic stream, i don't think that has the ratio issues or the sound cut out every few seconds.
Yeah, that's what I used...

...as I had the same problem as @gfRally with the You Tube version. I still can't quite make out the line though!

Couldn't RUF be a possibility? Or did they mention that. The sound skipped all the show through.

We've usually hit Export from Twitch and it has just worked but something has gone wrong. We're working on fixing it but it is a far easier solution to do it this way than trying to do live and a recording at the same time.

A possibility, but I'd say unlikely for a couple of reasons such as paying for the license of a technically incorrect car. This isn't Sega Rally.
We shouldn't really read too much into internal testing that was basically just done to see what the physics engine can do. It's all par for the course.

I suspect we'll have something before April. Paul was saying there was lots of exciting things he was bursting to talk about, but just couldn't yet.
Thus far at least, when it comes to things that weren't explicitly detailed on the road map, like new cars, they typically weren't revealed until 1/2 weeks before release, so there's a ton of scope there.

The stream itself was bonkers, the export would've been bonkers as well. I don't think i have ever experienced so much buffering and then catching up by the site. Whenever it buffered and slowed down to 20 second delay - it kept forwarding to get back up to 10 seconds for whatever reason. Also, don't overdo the source bit-rate, doing the max of 3500 just begs for trouble these last few months, and I've been on twitch far too much for my own good. >_>

EDIT: I won't be surprised if the show was disturbed by some tourney as well, those reaally mess it up.

The issue with the lagging during the stream is that if you are not a Twitch partner, all viewers are locked into the settings of the streamer. So if the streamer has a high quality stream, all the viewers have to have the internet bandwidth to handle the data and the CPU to handle decoding.

The issue with skipping on the replay? No idea.

DEPENDS, If the stream hits enough viewers, it enables transcoding for non-partner streams, which dirtgame gets pretty much instantly.

Anyone taking bets on the 'can't talk about' exciting news being more Rallycross action?  I think we'll see that aspect of the game getting more content? :)
Even though I love rallycross, I kind of hope that's not the case. In my opinion we need more unique stage kilometers per country instead of some rallycross. I have nothing against more rallycross content after that though... :)

About 3 and a half minutes in Paul says they could continue working on banks for all the tracks. I guess we already knew that, but hey, it's being worked on.
could

He also said that there're a lot of variables now that are making strong point on final outcome so it's generally still unshaped. At least I've understand it that way. I think no one really knows something now, they'll have some plans in mind but wait with them till the console release (which will be prioritirzed).

Guys, checkpoints in monthly events are on, check bug thread for my analysis (at first I thought it's a bug). I'd appreciate it if someone can confirm.
Yep, checkpoint system is working now it seems.
Thanks, I was a little bit worried that it's something with my instance :)
I'm curious if it was supposed to be online already, didn't they used future sentence in latest show?

They did, but I suppose they're testing various improvements with online mode right now. You all remember that strange Weekly challenge with custom weather, right? :)
But, personally, I don't like this checkpoint system.

Some sites have a team of reviewers to look at the same title and give a combined score and review.  I always enjoy these, much easier to trust the review and more comfortable with the decision I've about to make.  Personally thats what is wrong with many of these reviews.  They are slanted because someone loves rally, loves hard core sims, has no clue what rally is, or whatever perspective.  Personally PCGamer for me has always been a weak source of info.  

I'm probably late to the game with this, and not wanting to stir some more heat.  I sat back and thought how I make decisions on my purchases.  But I'm a weirdo anyhow, I know.

Every game review should contain at least two different reviewers' opinions. One who's a pro/series veteran or whatever applies to the game at hand, and another one reviewing it from a newcomers' point of view. Sadly, a reviewer has to play a game for a good few hours, and most magazines/sites have limited resources and can't invest twice the time/work in a single review.

I'm halfway done with a new video I'm making for the 1.0 release of Dirt Rally.  Have a lot more content I can use since I did the As The Rush Comes video.  This time I'm keeping it 100% just rally footage and it's not all slow mo.  Hoping to have it wrapped up tonight!

I need a couple of crash shots, the crashes in DR are def a weak point so it's hard to get one that looks natural.  If you have one that is in 1080p/30fps please let me know.

Wasn't there supposed to be released some documentary movie about Colin as a present?  I think something like this passed somewhere through my eyes.
Are  you thinking of the documentary that's meant to be included with the physical version of the game in April?
Yea that's it! I just woke up, something seemed to be unreal with what I'm writing about ;)

I'm curious if they're referring to anything else, but the video is likely it.  It is just the intro vid though.
My thoughts exactly: most likely the video, but perhaps they are hinting at something else.

They may have something else lined up, but I suspect the documentary that they have mentioned will be this one...

...that's no bad thing though, as that one is very good!
