DiRT SHOWDOWN  



DiRT Showdown arriving on May 29th, have a trailer


3:00 AM on 04.20.2012



It's crazy to think DiRT: Showdown is finally almost here. Wait, didn't DiRT 3 just come out? The "Complete Edition" of it just came out last month as well. Wow, Codemasters are not wasting any time these days. DiRT Showdown is a brand-new standalone title, and it's releasing May 29th (my birthday!). To celebrate the game releasing on my day, Codemasters released a trailer and it has cars racing. Just what I've always wanted!

Also, you can expect a demo May 1st, but to gain access to it you have to download RaceNet, which is the Halo Waypoint of Codemasters' racing games. Now we just need a stat hub for Skyrim and we're set. Anyway, Walmart will have the "Hoonigan Edition" as an exclusive pre-order. That will get you extra in-game cash, online XP multiplier, and alternative skins for six cars. You do like extra content, right?

You know, I was planning on getting around to trying out DiRT 3, but why do that when Showdown is right around the corner?

This is not your father's DiRT game.more

Ubisoft reminds us that The Crew isn't coming to the PS3 or Wii U, but is coming to Xbox 360

The Wii U still isn't in a good spot with third parties. There's a running gag in the industry that something is coming to "every console ever...except!" and everyone chimes in "the Wii U." It's a shame, because it's currentl...more
