Free Play Day – DiRT 4

Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2019 by getbent57

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry have a Free Play Day.  A few videos back talked about the DiRT games series and how much I enjoyed them. Haven’t played DiRT 4 in a very long time. So it makes it prefect for Free Play Day. Try out one stage first just to get used to the controls again. The second half, play a three stage rally. Each with a different environment and weather. This is a super fun game. Well worth the time and money.  You can see the video > here or below.  Are you into racing or rally games? If so, let me know in the comments below.

Lets Talk DiRT Game Series

Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2019 by getbent57

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, talk about the DiRT game series. Have been a fan of rally racing ever since I seen it on TV as a kid. Used to watch the Canadian rally championship every weekend. When the first PlayStation as out would rent rally games all the time. Years later when the PS3 out discovered Colin McRae’s DiRT game. This became my favourite racing game. Will until the next one was out. There have been some DiRT game series spin offs. Never got into those. Still a fan of the main series. With DiRT 4 been my favourite now.  You can see the video > here or below.  Are you into racing or rally games? If so, let me know in the comments below.

DiRT 3 Complete Edition

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on November 20, 2016 by getbent57

Dirt_3_PCFor two days Humble Bundle Store was giving away free copies of the PC version of DiRT 3 Complete Edition via a Steam code.  Couldn’t past this deal up. Love this game, own it on my PS3.  All ready have a Humble account and a Steam account so it was easy to get.  Once you put the game into your cart they send you a code to put into Steam.  Once on Steam you put the code in which gives you nine days to download it or it will go way.

Wasn’t to sure if my computer would run the game well or at all.  Download it any way because am planning on getting a new computer next year.  Didn’t take long to download.  Fired it up and it ran.  The game runs pretty good on my old Windows Vista with 3 GBs of ram.   The only thing is I don’t have a controller for my PC.  So playing the game with the key board it not that much fun.

BlindFaith Have been playing DiRT 3 for awhile now and there is a song that plays some times in the loading screen.  Really like it so I thought I would share.  It is called Blind Faith by Chase and Status Ft. Liam Bailey.  Would post the real music video for the song but it is one of those that “tells a story”  just want to share the song.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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

Online Gaming

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2011 by getbent57

This is a bit of a rant why I hate online gaming.  In theory it sounds fun but 9 times out of 10 it is not.  I really don’t care if I losses a game online.  Just there to have fun.  Well a few days ago decided to give DiRT 3 ago online.  Did some rally races and it was fine.  The next day decided to give it a go again.  Joined a rally race but the guy changed the settings to a different type of race.  Was thinking here we go.  This is going to be pain.  Sure enough, some of the players just smash into me making me crash.  Didn’t really care since I knew it would happen.  Kept playing a few more races.  They the same thing happened again and again.  They I get a message from someone calling me a “amateur fuck”.  Had a good laugh at that.  Not sure why, didn’t crash into any one and lost every race.  That is one reasons why I hate online gaming.

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.

PSN Store Is Back

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 3, 2011 by getbent57

WelcomeBack The PlayStation (PSN) store is now back online.  It came back up yesterday (June 3, 2011).  I was happy because I was able to activate the VIP code for DiRT 3.  The code give you access to online play, Youtube uploads and five cars.  Not a fan of this code thing to access online, seems stupid to me.  Any who, now the store is back they are offering the Welcome Back Program.  The program will let you download two games for the PS3 and two for the PSP.

PS3 Games

–Dead Nation
–Infamous
–Little Big Planet
–Super Stardust HD
–Wipeout HD + Fury

PSP Games

–Little Big Planet
–ModNation Racers
–Pursuit Force
–Killzone Liberation

You all so get PlayStation Plus for 30 days free.  Not sure which games I will choose yet. Will be taking advantage of the PlayStation Plus.  You can get some good deals on downloadable games and DLC.  Might be a good time to get DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue.

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.
