Compound sounds like a nice feature, better than the menu's in Dirt 2.

Thanks for the link, Cojage. I added it to the main post, along with a list of the cars that have appeared and been mentioned so far.

I really like this bit from the preview:

QUOTE (IGN)
And fittingly it feels like a return to the ideals of the series' forebears - the Colin McRae games - with the addition of Finland, Norway and Monte Carlo as well as the introduction of the all-important WRC licence lending DiRT 3 a more traditional air. It helps that Ken Block, the American star that's taken McRae's position as series' figurehead, has made the shift to the premier rally series, and as Codemasters returns to its roots its game feels remarkably more mature.

Gone is the elaborate, extreme sports flavoured front-end of DiRT 2, and in its place is an equally slick yet more minimal menu set, told in stark monochrome with occasional flashes of colour.

Sounds like we're getting it the way we want it. inlove.gif

rather looking forward to the snow rally stages though. I felt DiRT 2 didn't have enough rallies and was bogged down by all the truck races :S

The third seems to be lining up reeeeal nice. Those pre-alpha graphics are not looking at all shabby - imagine that kind of detail, only polished. It seems the career is taking shape as well.

Can't wait to try this on my new setup (coming soon). GTX 460 or Radeon 5870?

There's no difference between two versions unless you have powerful PC.

Loosely described, gymkhana features a start and finish line and some obstacle to negotiate.


There's going to be a Gymkhana mode? wow.gif I'll get this game on the first day for sure.

And a bit of gameplay footage from IGN: http://www.ign.com/v...-around-finland

Looks like some good, solid rally'ing and not just a giant Kenny from the Block/Gymkhana wankfest.

Holy sh*t, do want.

I was afraid this might turn out sh*t, I mean, Dirt 2 wasn't a bad game, just not as good as it should have been.

Can't f*cking wait, hope it does go back to the McRae roots. The Quattro's looking beautiful. Hopefully there's a few Lancias in there too.

WOW, so how long has this been known about? And I never knew they were even making a Dirt 3. That Gymkhana mode will be used frequently.

I accidentally in my pants

seriously though, I can't believe that this game looks and sounds better than dirt 2 and that game had great visuals. Still not liking that sepia filter that codemasters use with their current engine. Will hopefully have graphics mods similar to f1 2010.

Hopefully the performance is roughly the same.. my card can only just max Dirt 2 at 60fps constant, minus crowd tessellation because frankly I couldn't see a difference for the performance hit.

Wait, May? Damn! I lost track of how this was going, I was expecting it later. It'll be very much sidetracked because of LA Noire.

Sounds pretty good! After skipping DiRT 2, I might just get this.

Has Codemasters released any info in GRID 2 yet? I'd love another installment of DiRT's tarmac brother. inlove.gif

There's a time limit? Oh man that sucks...

Anyways, I'll be getting my copy tomorrow. Anyone know if the Thrustmaster T500 wheel can be used in Dirt 3? Might borrow it from a friend tomorrow as well. biggrin.gif

are you playing the gymkhana in single race mode or in the career, I've not played gymkhana apart from the ones in the career but once you finish the first season you do unlock a gymhana mode in the career, there may be difference between that and the gymkhana mode in single race.

Single race at the minute, I wanted to give it a try first thing to get used to what it's like, I've only completed one triangle of the career mode so far, I've been playing MP and gymkhana.
