Rally Around For Some Dirt: Showdown Videos

I’ve deleted the official spelling of Codemasters' Dirt” three times now. Every time I attempt to write big d small i big r big t my keyboard starts to glow red, smoke comes out of it and I hear a thousand voices screaming. That’s what I get for using Vigo the Carpathian’s old mechanical keyboard. But he calmed down when he saw the smashing cars of this raw footage from Codie's arcade spin-off of their rally series. His giggle was almost infectious.

Codemasters took the game to CVG and gave them these videos. Writing from our homes means we tend to not get visits from major publishers to our places of work, but I have the bonus of not having showered for two days and only one of my legs is in my trousers. Check and mate, CVG.

Here's the Destruction Derby mode.

And a race around Baja, California.

And the collidey 8-Ball track.

It's out on May 25, the day of my next shower.
