Q&A session with team DiRT

Q&A session with team DiRT

With less than two weeks until the release of Colin McRae DiRT, we present to you this crazy-long Q&A session with the producer of the game, Alex Grimbley - all brought to you by the XCN network. It covers the most, as the talked-about framerate and Xbox Live mode, and, of course, the dirt itself.

well that made me want the game even more...lol, loved the demo, love the fact they arnt completely neglecting straight up rally for a more diverse game (i love my rallying) although the option to do a little 10 man buggy racing is always welcome to break things up, online sounds like a tension and fair alternative to track racing. definatey want this one.

one question thats a little off tipic, what happened to "grand raid offroad" game? that looked pretty impressive but we've heard nothing of it for ages.

Great news, not in favor of the online route they took but from the reviews ive read, this is a great game for rally fans. Ima definitely pick this up, i already got Forza 2 so i will have bought 2 games this month:lol:

Here we go again (about the MP part of the game).. I'm all for trying new things like the race v 100 other people now, especially in the rally part of the game, but why oh why does that mean they have to leave a old and proven concept of racing against eachother on the same track out? The offrouad buggyraces etc just scream for that type of online multiplayer racing imho..

So I'm still not sure of I'm gonna buy this game.. Not being able to play my friends online but having to share it with upto a 100 others now, or simply just compare times with a few friends just doesn't sound as much fun to me then racing against eachother on the same track.. If it had both it would be a sure buy for me, but now tbh it just sounds like a gloryfied SP game to me.. To bad since it's bassicly the only proper rallygame on the Xbox 360.. Damn I miss RSC..

I guess they'd have lag issues due to physics and car damage (maybe). Well, does Motorstorm have lag issues in Mp ? Only reason I could come up with. The game looks really hot and the latest press version is supposedly way cleaner than the demo.

good interview. I'm a little unsure about the 100 player race thingy, it might get a little impersonal with that many people. But they get props for trying something different.

I might give this a go actually. My Rally urge hasn't been satisfied for ages, since stupid MS can't get RSC2 working on 360...
