So bassicly the same mud and track system as Motorstorm..

Im a bit worried that this game will pale a bit in comparison with colin cmrae dirt, I know that this isn't aiming to be as realistic as mcrae but mcrae is the prefect balance between realism and fun. Im hoping that sega tries to aim for a bit more realism than the previous games as well as a really good multiplayer mode.
I really impressed by the track deformation as it actually affects the way the tracks play unlike the pretty but useless track deformation in motorstorm.

No the mud in motorstorm only changes the textures and it doesn't have any effect on the handling.

it does affect handling and suspensions etc, and there is minor track deformation, but 90% of it is just texture effects, sonys lies that the poor devs couldnt live up to.

Yea but the cars lack weight in Colin Mcrae, the turning just doesn't feel right. Hopefully this game will feel more like an arcade Rallisport.

colin is a bit more arcade thats why, ... as for motorstorm... lol dude that deformation and handling/suspension effect is even less than that... its more like 98% texture effect... this game on the other hand is liker acing to the next level!

hello nextgen offroad (btw i liked colin's :) )

So they use a different technique.. what's the argument here? You even state that it still effects suspension and handling.. and for the record, it's a pretty solid game.

A totally different sort of game than what we see here anyway.. there's room for more than one off road racing game. If anything is a next-gen (it's not next anymore btw) offroad, it's probably not this.. hopefully this is a this-gen Sega Rally instead.

About the game

    Sdarts Even if you have the money, if the place where you're gonna put your TV and the viewing distance should always be taken into account. If you don't have a big room, don't buy a very big TV. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @Moonwalker: If you do any basic research into TVs, you will find out that viewing distance and display size are very important factors when deciding to buy a TV. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (5 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (14 Hours ago)

    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (21 Hours ago)
