DiRT 3 Patch

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 28, 2011 by getbent57

A patch is now out for the PS3 version of DiRT 3.  I do believe it has been out for the Xbox for a little while now.  Was looking at the list of fixes (below).  It wasn’t what I thought it was going to be.  Pretty unexciting stuff.  Oh well it will make some people happy.

 

 

  • LAN multiplayer functionality has now been added.
  • Graphical abnormalities with the YouTube UI have been fixed.
  • The description for the mission ‘Buried Large Pipes’ has been corrected
  • UI elements are no longer incorrectly displayed in Gymkhana.
  • Reset line corrections to prevent potential ‘out of world’ or ‘driving into crowd’ issues on several tracks
  • Various game hangs and soft-locks have now been resolved.
  • Prevented engine audio incorrectly continuing to play in multiplayer events
  • Steering wheel no longer jolts to the left in the race reward screen
  • Fixed a multiplayer spectator issue which would prevent camera rotation around a watched vehicle in chase cam
  • Corrected various spelling mistakes across all language

DiRT 3 Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on June 16, 2011 by getbent57

Think it is time for my DiRT 3 review.  Last night I finished all the single player races.  To get 100% complete.  Just like the first two games I love this one just as much.  While they are different than each other it still has what makes a DiRT game a DiRT game.  The visuals in the game as just pure awesome.  Has to be one the best looking racing games out there.   It is just fun to play.  What I like about it mixes sim with arcade while let you change the games setting to they way you like to play.  Which is a good thing because it lets more people enjoy the game.

Another game added to my all time favourites list along with the other two.  A must buy.  The only thing I don’t like is I wish there was more to unlock.

5 out of 5 GT (GT = Good Times)

DiRT 3 Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2011 by getbent57

Got my copy of DiRT 3 today (May 24, 2011).  Went over to Wal-mart on my lunch break just to see if they had it out yet.  They did, was surprised at that.  I remember trying to get a copy of DiRT 2 when that came out.  Went all over town to find a copy.  Waiting for the game to install before I give it a go.  The game comes with a VIP Pass.  To play online you have to go to a website put in the code. That will give you a PSN code to enter on the PS3.  Which is stupid.  I know they are trying to make money of people buy used copies.  It is $10 if you didn’t a VIP pass.  It does give you five exclusive vehicles and yet you upload clips to YouTube.  With the Playstation store still down there will be not much online play going on.

Gave the first race in tour mode just before supper.  Left all the setting on default.  I think I will have to change them up because it was too easy.  All I had to do was hold the gas on and steer.  The game did all the breaking.  It does let you change all the assists so I will have to try the different ones out.  The game is beautiful looking and the menu screens are just as cool as the past two games.  Time to play some more.

DiRT 3 Tomorrow

Dirt3Cover Tomorrow is May 24, 2011 so that means DiRT 3 is out.  Have been looking forward to this game for a long time now.  Can’t wait to pick it up.  There are some review up all ready. They are saying good things.  I know it is going to be good because the first two are two of my all time favourite games.  Those games look awesome and this one looks even better.

DiRT 3 May 24, 2011

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 5, 2011 by getbent57

Yep, DiRT 3 will be out May 24, 2011.  So can’t wait.  Loved the first two games.  With number three they are going back to more rally events.  They say that 60% of the career mode is rally.  There is some new info about the game > here.  Some of the stuff that stands out to me is.  There will be more weather that effects the car’s handling.  There is some pitch black races.  You will be able to move around to different events instead of being stuck in one place till you finish the races.  At any time when you are not in a race you can go back to your lot and practices gymkhana.  Also so multiplayer sounds a lot more fun this time around.  Will be picking the game up day one for sure.

DiRT 3 Update

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on November 17, 2010 by getbent57

There is some new info on DiRT 3 and pictures.  The game is sounding great.  The game will be about 60% rally this time around.  Which I am happy about.  You will be able to upload clips to YouTube.  There will be two player split as well.  Been a long time since I have see split screen is a racing game.  There is an eight player party mode but that is for online.  Not sure how that will work but think is has to do with gymkhana stuff.   The last two games are two of my all time favourites so I will be picking this one up for sure.

DiRT 3 Screens

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on September 17, 2010 by getbent57

There are two new screens shots out for DiRT 3.  The second picture looks like it was lifted from Ken Blocks new Gymkhana video.  If that is real game play I would be socked.  This game will be out some time in 2011.  Will be picking it up for sure.

There is a new video out interviewing with two of the guys making DiRT 3.  The gave out some new info on the game.  They say it is a mix of DiRT 1 and 2.  There is snow this time around.  You can see that in the trailer.  One cool feature you don’t see much any more is split screen.  Have split screen is going to make the game a lot more fun.   You can see the interview > here.
