Codemasters is getting down and dirty with some hot new footage of ... ugh. Okay, look, I'm not going to do that to you. There's a new trailer for Colin McRae's DiRT 2, alright? The game looks very good. Let's knock this off. The press release after the jump has enough bad puns in it for the both of us.
The new video showcases game footage intermingling with clips of real rally, and while it isn't exactly impossible to differentiate the two, the game certainly does look nice. If the sense of speed we're seeing from outside the cars makes its way to the inside as well, we've got an exhilharating rally title on the way. I'm hoping the trailer's music isn't too indicative of what we'll be driving along to, but the car porn definitely has my attention.

StriderHoang Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.techsupport I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on. Mike Martin I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

AuhhhghghghhhhShinta MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this.

If you don't know the truth, you don't know the score. The end is coming near. MAJOR SPOILERS!Paul S Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.wutangclam I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.Barry Kelly I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.Shinta Who's your favorite female black writer on Destructoid's staff?
Post a comment below with your votes.Dr Mel I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.ChillyBilly OK. So the Mad Max game is basically the combat from the Batman games, the driving bits from Rage and the taking over the outposts bits from Far Cry 3 and 4. I guess what I'm saying is that it's super fun and I'm really, really enjoying it.
