Wait, come one, we need to pool the facts together.. so far we have the CMR 2.0 case open to rally modes, Nintendo Switch licensing deal, Ford Fiesta pen, breath holding competition, NOT Ping-pong, though I assume that's a lie, urgaffel is having fun with a new smoke sim (and most likely other things, like an unconfirmed new engine), cookies, playtesting facility, Austrian housing prices, #Believe, the number 4, Berlin, Definitely NOT Argentina, seeing as how they're still alive, Milestones being hit (Still hopefully the French company)... (Including a team average of a 10 second breath holding increase,) NDA's, Silence,
Don't you guys see? It's all right there, it's so clear!

I'm picking that this is what was bizarrely accurate...

The "reacquainted" part is gossip worthy?  Hope they are looking at CMR3 as well, its all about tge interface.  
Notice how there is a "Fiesta" pen beside the modes page? "Fiesta" is Spanish f or "party" and the book is open on section "5.0" so I think the hint is obvious there: 

PARTY MODES CONFIRMED FOR DIRT 5.0
I want it to be THIS (please please please please please)

So far, we have deduced that its:-  

Colin McRae DiRT W Rally 4.20 Fiesta Party New Zealand Edition
but it's begrudgingly more likely to be this:
When they wrote in the road book some things of yorkie bars, well York is the SSS of Australia in CMR3 and CMR2005 I am sure, I dont remember if in CMR:DiRT also
oh, and some sort of real estate mini game hidden in the service park....

Things heating up indeed :)  Can't wait to see what the team has been up to :)

I'm wondering what @ChristinaMc was visiting headquarters in Berlin about....

http://blog.codemasters.com/dirt/10/dirt-rally-road-book-281016/



 She was told to go to Berlin, get a few suitcases which were full of cash and come back home. The money is legit and meant for the next project.
Obviously. As clear as day! :smile:

I have always said DiRT Rally might have benefitted from something like a 'Career Mode' to engage Single or Offline players with a more of a path to walk them through the game.

If another CMR instalment was supported by the McRae's, would it not be the ultimate Career Story to base a game mode?   Start as a young Colin, in a Scottish forest with a Sunbeam & move on to the Nova, tackle major events in the Sierra, Legacy etc before the world events in the Impreza, Focus and Citroen?  Hell, you could even dabble in Touring car & Le Mans for a bonus round or two!

Its does say something about "full Colin, Flat!" spelled out on the notebook in the 'Re-acquainted #TBT' tweet....  
Maybe the note-book was a future aspiration for a game that's now becoming a reality?

WHO KNOWS??   :/

I have always wanted a well thought out career mode.  I like your idea, BUT wouldn't it be great if Colin was who we where competing against the whole career?  Think about it, he was an great driver, but had his faults (crashing) so there is always room for others to beat him.  He had the will and determination to win, sometimes the cars he drove didn't (lol).  

Look at it from this perspective:  No one can ever BE Colin McRae, but we can all aspire to be like him, so the game you are trying beat him by building your own team (sponsorships, car, spare parts, codriver).  Obviously like most rally that I have experienced, its all friendly competition, even if McRae was a hot - head at times.

Anyhow, its early Saturday morning... my head isn't real clear.. so this may have been talked about before.

I now kind of want CM to make an all encompassing game, I suppose like PCars 2 is supposed to be, but y'know, good. Include all the motorsports, they've got enough teams now. The F1 crew can work on their end, the Dirty guys on ours and the Evo guys on road/gt. It's just an idea.

TOCA 3 with sim physics across the board like dirt rally would be a truly great game
Toca can suck my ass. sorry i own literally all codemasters games. but toca sucks big hairy ass.
Toca 2 was amazing though.
I remember playing all the TOCA's on PSX. Lord Bahamut those were a lot of fun and a challenge (well, for a 9-10 year old me at least). That series started declining with PS2 releases though.

Release a Circuit Racing game ( like TOCA games ), and be a success/popular, it needs to be top-notch, with all the competition there's atm ( AC, AMS, R3E, etc ). Imo, it's a route where they would have a hard time.

Better keep doing the kind of games, where they are the leading Studio ( Rally/Off-Road ) and improve them at every new release. They have no competition, or competition can't get even close... yet.

Remember the Loch Ness track? That was awesome.
I do have a vague memory of a "bonus" track. I also remember some kind of Fiesta cup or something?

would like a assetto corsa style tarmac game but it would have to be done well. thing is assetto has this sown up.so anything but amazing would be a failure.also when you play dirt rally and tarmac its not great and that is from someone who thinks dirt rally is the best rally game ever.

Ehh, I don't know why people like AC so much. Based on that Toca video, it's surprising how little race sims have advanced. There's more geometry, slightly higher textures, and a bit of a rudimentary lighting engine.
At least the CM games look good, and have a career that's fun to go through. Oh, and they're better optimized. And a million other things.

I assume you're referring to the GRID games? They're the most boring racing games I've ever played, not very challenging. Better optimized? Yeah, sure. But the car movement is way off in every single one of them. I prefer AC because it actually feels like I'm driving a car, and the amazing force feedback helps a lot. Not really impressed by people trying to rallify it though. That'll never work.

So yeah - for me, DR for rallying, AC for racing. GT Legends is also a great racing game.

Well, being probably the only representative of the popcorn side here, I think I should drop an opinion (and quickly run away).

While DR is definitely the game to go when it comes to rally, for racing I prefer... arcade racers (not even simcade tbh). Mainly due to the fact that you can have ridiculously close races at high speeds that in sim environment would just be not possible and would be... more than epic to watch. I'm not really sold on the "brake later, steal the apex, proceed to outaccelerate" style of the sim racers when it comes to... well, just racing. Driving? Yep, 100% agree on that, but for actual racing... arcade is a must.

Now... *runs away*

To be fair - driving an F40 around Nordschleife in AC is a pretty awesome experience.

I mean the CM games. I was actually really talking about the Dirt series. Didn't play Grid, or F1, but they both have fans and F1 2016 seems to have people pretty happy. The Dirt Rally campaign is pretty barebones, but still more than AC, and it's not enough to get me to do it.

I scream for Criterion to make another Burnout. They released that they were working on "something" like 3 years ago and haven't said a word since. I was hoping they'd be more open about it, and let fans in on it, and maybe even vote for features they'd like. Sort of like DR did, but they could've done it throughout the development cycle, instead of trying to shoehorn it in along with a million other things last minute.

I still they should take a page out of the f1 team on how to make a campagn. Base it around a championship. If they cant get a licence to an existing one, They can make their own Rally championship

The racing might be fun, but often arcades don't really work with wheels. Like the last few Need for Speed games were just terrible with a wheel. The latest one felt half decent, but things like Most Wanted or Hot Pursuit were just bad. Usually they have some kind of weird speed sensitive steering, bad FFB and lillte to no setup options. The Crew for example, feels really floaty, although it is a bit better than NFS in terms of handling

Well, they have the WRX license so that could be a done deal, as well as the Pikes Peak actually, so maybe they could add more into that too. DR is nice that it has the three separate classes, there's just not enough. As to the rally, yeah, just make up a DiRT championship, or since they have such a standing with the Burns's'es, call it the Burns IRC or something.

I'm not sure if I'm convinced the poor FFB comes from being an arcade, or just an afterthought barely functioning check mark to add another feature to the list.

That's because arcades are made generally for gamepads. And if you want to use a wheel, then anything more than 120 DOR is basically pointless. And again... arcades are about racing, not driving. It doesn't matter much how the physics feel to drive, it matters how they behave in a race, what they allow to happen, if they "match" the environment etc.
You can't go into an arcade racer with a sim mindset, just as you can't go into a sim racer with an arcade mindset. Even though both are racing games, they represent two completely different genres altogether. Similar story to RPGs and jRPGs. In short... enjoy it for what it is, not for what you want it to be.

PS. The Crew is a simcade and yes the physics are floaty and rather crap in general. If you want to know what a proper arcade racer is, look at actual Need For Speed games (aka everything pre Underground), Burnout, Redout, Wipeout, GRIP, Rollcage, Most Wanted '05, Hot Pursuit '10. Arcade racers nowadays are quite a lost genre, as nowadays it's either sim or simcade, or puke inducing arcade in the form of Need For Sales '15.

They aren't working on Burnout and they won't be working on it anytime soon most likely. Three Fields Entertainment is making a spiritual successor to Burnout Takedown, and that dev studio is comprised of two founding members of Criterion.

Yeah they're doing "Beyond cars" or something, with a focus on more sports. Honestly don't know how that's going to work.

In my opinion, it's due that's probably the game that drive the closest to a car. With the new tire model 10, it's quite close. Also the special event difficulty is entertaining. There are other racing games that simulate more stuff, but doesn't really translate well how it feel nor behave as the like of the real thing.

I like the motorsport theme on Codemasters games & they're very good at it. Other should screw their pokemon & RPGish. Racing is a sport & they make their games affordable with enough content.

There's one series that I hate a lot is Forza for sure. The steering is so heavily assisted that it give vomit driving.

For PCARS, the handling is broken & backer are so forceful with their dividend & desperate to get a pay check that I find it annoying. All Cody games handle better than that game. So please, don't promote that garbage(it's a trend nowaday).

There's also that expensive online game that sponsor people to advertise their game & claim it has the best online multiplayer...

I doubt that we'd be allowed to say re invites, that'd likely be covered under the NDA.
I don't recall us being silenced on confirming our attendance before, but perhaps things are different this time around.

Damn shame I didn't get any gaming time yesterday, as I really wanted to do the Wales special event!
