Diiiirrrrttt ShooooowdOOOOOOwwwnnnnnnnnn!


The Dirt 3 reboot that is Showdown actually looks like a torrent of fun. The latest trailer, which shows nothing more than the "boost" function operating in the various scenarios, neatly demos the game's focus on rough-and-tumble full-contact racing, where the collisions between vehicles are just as significant as the neat racing line. I suppose it's easy to mock Codemasters' "extreme sports" hyperbole, but I've nevertheless enjoyed the Dirt games enormously, and they get the sort of toyish, consequence-free possibilities of these sorts of cars just right. Looking forward to this one, too.

The game is out in May.
