I am actually excited for FH3 coming to PC. Played the first one back in the day, and it's arguably the only game series that offers nice cars to drive in an open world enviroment with somewhat bearable driving physics and wheel support. 
I think it will be a great game to relax and enjoy your petrol-headery with nice cars on the open road.

And with your Dirt Rally driving skills you can probably go online occasionally to completely dominate those casual folks :D :D :D

Ok, I would have to say that was nearly the best Gymkhana yet (besides the first with the Subie, of course :wink:)  And it was only 100 miles from where I live, may have to visit that site some time.  

Too bad about him getting kicked out of Australia when trying to secure filming locations.  So funny that the land of MAD MAX frowns so much on hooning

At the moment I wouldn't be surprised if the Dirt team announced either a Dirt RallyCross game with full WRX in it, or some substantial DLC to cover WRX for Dirt Rally.

However that tweet about recording a Lancia Status for Dirt... if that's a recent development then whatever is coming up isn't just WRX...

He got kicked out of Australia? Haha, that's pretty lame on their part. Australia could be cool if it wasn't so liberally prone on literally everything.

Yep. Waiting for the port report and seeing what wheels it supports. If it works well, even if I can't use my triples I'll go buy a new SSD and Win10. Pretty hyped for it, it looks fantastic on Xbone. Just hoping they let me use my triples, and for the love of god put in the dash cam everyone's been asking for for 10 years. Otherwise I'm sure people will figure out how to mod the FOV at least.

Wheel support for FH3 is basically Logitech and Thrustmaster at the moment, with Fanatec coming in late Sept: http://www.forzamotorsport.net/en-us/news/fm6a_wheel_support

Forza Apex runs pretty well for me, between 80-120fps, but I do get some occasional stuttering which oddly enough is much worse when I frame limit to 60fps. Hoping FH3 resolves it, I am not sure how much of the engine is shared but I imagine a lot.

They basically seem to be leapfrogging one another, whilst simultaneously working together. The playground guys seem to do the more complex stuff at 30FPS and then the turn 10 guys improve it and put in Motorsport. So each iteration builds upon the last. They use the same engine essentially, Horizon just uses newer/experimental features.
I'm wondering if Forza 7 will use H3's weather system. If it's a semi dynamic HDRI environment map, it seems to me like it should be implementable into 7, where it can the give dynamic weather whilst still being 60FPS.
In any case, I'm not sure how well the dumb windows store will actually function, and they might not support my wheel, and at the current time "custom" setups don't seem to work. Though my wheel is officially 360 compatible. It's also weird that Fanatec was left out when they're teamed with Motorsport and have a dedicated wheel bundle.

OOOH! Guys, great news, Blocks put out another Gymkhana video! Unfortunately it's sponsored with FH3 so I guess CM won't have it next game. :'(

Australia is very anti-hoon, I recall reading an article a while back on a chap in Australia who was building an XB GT Mad Max replica: he was having a nightmare with the authorities! 

As for the video I enjoyed it, definitely one of the better ones, there are a couple of very cool shots in there.  I am still hopeful that Ken will ditch the modern machinery and break out his RS200 for a gymkhana video!

I'd prefer for him to take that RS200 up a certain hill :D
Notting Hill?
Knockhill?

Yeah, Logitech, except my Driving Force GT :angry: Even Momo is on the list

Momo owners - YAY
DFGT owners - oh ffs
G2X owners - heh, obviously

xD
It's probably because the DFGT has a Gran Turismo logo on it. Damned politics :angry:

Not a gossip obviously and it is off-topic, I have been recently playing CMR2.0+silent patch with a Thrustmaster RGT (fortunately the little game detected it) and I got to say that it was the best realistic experience I have enjoyed so far... It is much much better than these today's rally or racing titles that call themselves simulators... Seriously when you.take those old-school turbocharged machines to the Finnish roads with a wheel tackling high-speed corners with technique and going half-throttle to be precise with sharp corners then maximum attack at high speed corners and crests... What an experience.. Ask Porky!

That's a good example of what a clear focus on game feel and the quality of the user experience can achieve. It doesn't matter how 'realistic' or 'arcadey' a game is, if care is put into the way a game feels, it will be fun to play. CMR2 may not be super advanced by today's standards, but it holds up because of how well put together it was. I doubt anyone will be saying that about, ahem, "certain other rally games," 14 years from now.

As mach as we all LOVE Slap, this was.... moderately decent. Imagine that in DR.

Some effects (water) are nice.  The foliage is just awful, @urgaffel and co. do amazing work in making the environment seem so alive and real.  I think any 'bling' we may be feeling from this video is how the gfx engine handles.  

The thing I noticed is all the camera angles, its just seems so fresh.

Yeah, that open world foliage. I'd expected more of you gf. The shrubs are... okay, but the trees and grass are pretty darn good for an open world console game.
To still give @urgaffel his due, yeah, the game looks good, but on Sweden I can see the ends of the terrain that's actually modelled. After a point it turns into things like AC track mods. Running 3d shrubs in a full open world is purdy darn hard.

oh look some guys got the dev tools.makes me sick tbh.popularity over content.woops dg you spoke your mind again. :D

its a shame in todays game market that the subscriber count gets you all the goodies.games makers should make tools for the game in question so ALL can film it the same.s many subs as he has he is actually pretty bad at many car games.

RANT over.bed time dg.let businesss continue. :)

Oh look, some guy spoke without actually knowing a single thing about the game... Everyone here would like a free camera in DiRT Rally, but that doesn't mean other games are not getting those things and require some dev tools.

I know this may sound like some heresy to people here, but DR for all the things that have been done well, there's almost an exact amount of things that have been done wrong. This includes the ages long bugs, features that have gone missing when compared to previous titles, features that were never implemented or straight out ignored etc. This naturally doesn't mean the other games Devs are so oh great, no, they have their bad sides as well. Just that those bad sides changes depending on the dev team.

As to Slaptrain... he's just a typical example of a YouTuber that gets his subscriber count from people that love a shouting face that is way overhyped and has exaggerated reactions to everything. Not for you know... intellect, skills, charisma etc.
I personally like to call him "Slap face". The similarity he shares with BlackPantha and AR12Gaming is extreme. On the other hand, are there any actual differences between them? xD

I refuse to watch BlackPanthaa based of his name alone. In case you don't know, the Black Panthers are a racist group equally opposite to the KKK.
And the other guys I find to be more annoying than Slap.

Ill never judge anyone by their 'handle' but its an interesting coincidence that all 3 of these names sound THUGish?

AR12.... (a gun)
BlanckPantha ... (as you referenced a hate group)
Slap ... (Pimps/Wife beaters/etc)  

A bit like the wizard of oz, a giant persona with a little man at the controls.

Eh. AR-12 is a Turkish shotgun designed after the M16-AR15. Of which being an American I have no problem with. Not sure if that's what he's going for, but seeing as how he looks and sounds like a 12 year old with a stupid Belieber haircut... I could go both ways. There's plenty of gun channels I watch full of people who aren't thugs.
Literally naming yourself after a racist hate group though.....
I'm also not sure where a Canadian gets off calling himself Slap Train.

I own a couple of guns, no biggie for me, either.  My initial thought in lumping the names together just led me down that path.  Maybe I watch too much news :)  Anyhow sorry for loosing the topic.

From the few videos I've seen, it seems like slap train at least knows what he's talking about when it comes to cars and racing, unlike the complete moron that is AR12, who I have literally no idea why people would want to watch a racing game channel with a guy who doesn't know a thing about it. If you want to be really annoyed then watch this from when dirt on console was first announced: https://youtu.be/nsQG3Op9_N8

the most lazy video ever made, the guy has clearly not done a single bit of research. I don't watch much YouTube anymore, but I've always like FailRace as a channel. He really knows his stuff about cars and racing, and was completely full of praise for dirt.

Yeah, I watched one of AR12's videos once and he was spinning the camera around on the outside view to see what other people were doing, then being completely confused why he was crashing. Literally no idea how he has so many subscribers. But I rarely watch anything on YouTube now that I'm no longer a student

The Black Panthers were absolutely not a racist hate group equivalent to the KKK. Anyway, BlackPanthaa could be named after the Marvel character.

And Slap's videos are really hard to watch.

Didn't even know there was a Marvel character. Not sure how you don't figure the panthers as equivalent, but that get's way off into another topic I don't feel like talking about.

They might just have been out drunk driving and swerved into a milestone. Otherwise I'd be forced to get hyped, and I can't stand being hyped.

Hopefully they were in Milan and crashed into their production office.  ;)
(Insert that Top Gear clip of Jeremy running through the tiny shed/"Production office" we've all seen but I can't be bothered to find.)

My theory is that they just amassed a very large pile of games by Milestone and smashed them up.
