Feature: Racing Game Evolution

It’s A Race To The Future

Where can racing games go? How can they push boundaries and the same time provide us with the speed and competition we crave? The genre is already offering some clues about what it might be able to do, aside from improving graphics, realism, or going online, or doing anything else purely technical.

Grand Auto Theft: 3m DIRT 3 Keys Nicked

News that an eyebrow-raising 3 million Steam activation codes for natty racing title DIRT 3 had been leaked online broke earlier today, and now has an official oh-dear air to it as a result of confirmation from AMD that, yes, the codes were intended for vouchers that shipped with their Radeon graphics cards and yes, a database file containing them was purloined by bad eggs.…

Touring Cars: Dirt 3 Monte Carlo DLC

According to Codemasters, players have spent 292 years playing Dirt 3, neatly pre-dating the invention of the internal combustion engine.

Friends Of The Earth: Dirt 3’s Party Mode

Codemasters announced today that Dirt 3 will include a party mode. Dirty parties, one presumes? Rally cars gracelessly mounting other rally cars, and huffing great cupfuls of cocaine through their grilles? Alas no. Dirt 3's party mode will all be good, clean, online fun, and Codies have invented three special new multiplayer modes which resemble playground games than anything else. Details after the jump.

Have we used that joke before? Definitely. But hopefully the following fact will distract you- the trailer after the jump shows off the Group B rally cars that'll be in Dirt 3 (releasing this May).

Gymkhana With Gasoline Horses

Speaking of Codemasters, DiRT 3's latest videoramic offering is showing off Ken Block talking about "Gymkhana", which is basically trick-driving an obstacle course in a modified rally car. The video mixes real footage with game footage, so that you can experience the queasy dissonance of virtual light still not quite looking like the real thing. Speaking of things that are funny looking: Ken Block. (Also…

Codies Talk “Balance” For Dirt 3

Dirt 3 is going to have a good balance between arcade accessibility and realism, say Codemasters, as they unveil the latest adventure in offroad antics in this early developer diary (posted below, obviously). The racing game, which is due to turn up some time next year, also seems to feature time travel, as one of the races will be "a Mini Cooper in the 1960s".…
