When it comes to sim gamers, nothing is too expensive or too out of the ordinary. They will pay any price to have an experience that is as close to the real thing as possible. Meet the VRX iMotion. Nvidia was showing this bad boy off at their booth at CES this year, so I just had to give it a whirl.
Publishers Codemasters and graphics card manufacturer AMD have been running a promotion lately whereby purchasers of a card got a free copy of excellent racer Dirt 3. That offer has now been, uh, slightly expanded.
We've seen plenty of games trying to achieve photographic realism, but how often do we come across attempts to make real life look more like a game? The folks over at Codemasters have done just that, with their latest tie-in video for last month's racing title Dirt 3.
A pretty crappy car, maybe, but the point remains: you could still buy a working, actual automobile for the cost of this steering wheel set minted for racing game Dirt 3.
Ah, Monaco. A charming Principality, famous for its azure harbors, Grace Kelly and...car rallies. Lots and lots of car rallies. The folks over at Codemasters would like to invite you to this car-racing paradise in their newest gameplay trailer for Dirt 3, giving a glimpse of the title's Rallycross, Gymkhana and Head…

Eyebrows were raised last night when a version of Dirt 3 was shown off costing $300. Well, turns out there may be a justification for that. Provided you like remote control cars.
You know, ridiculously expensive collectors editions have their place. There are certain franchises where there are enough loyal fans around who will spend hundreds on a box full of crap. I do not think Dirt is one of those franchises.
The new racing video game, Dirt 3, includes its version of Gymkhana, the wild stunt-driving that's been called "drifting-cum-LSD-fueled-acrobatics." Makes sense. The inclusion of some sort of undead multiplayer racing? Well, that's a surprise.
You know, for all the Gran Turismos and Forzas and Need For Speeds of the past couple of years, my favourite racing game over that time has actually been Dirt 2. So, yeah, Dirt 3 is of interest.
Gymkhana, the "car rodeo" YouTube video phenomenon, will join the redoubtable Rally in DiRT 3 next year. Loosely described, gymkhana features a start and finish line and some obstacle to negotiate. Codemasters dropped several screenshots illustrating both modes today.
Alright, I take back what I said about trashcan luge and moped biathlon. The X-Games are a strangely watchable sports spectacle, and a good platform for Codemasters to launch its official DiRT 3 trailer last night.
