As much as Project cars 3 shouldn't be Project cars game DiRT 5 shouldn't bee DiRT game.
As simple as that

edit (after actually take a peek into a video):
This is more like a nice GPU benchmark.
Up yours Heaven Benchmark, now sim drivers have our own

mod-edit: personal insults not allowed

user-edit: Guess what guys, CMR series evolved into DiRT series and I bet you Dirt 2 and 3 sold more than any of the CMR games total.

So yes Dirt Rally is the spinoff. Don't like it? Sod off.

To whoever edited my post. I'll keep putting simracing elitist twats in their place. It's their fault every sim on the market is pretty much the same crap. Good physics,bugger all else to do in terms of gameplay. God forbid we actually get something fun to do.

And when developers actually go and make a racing game with believable physics (PC3, Dirt 5 here) these people come out of the woodworks and bury the title even before its out AND ITS NOT EVEN AIMED AT BEING SOLD TO THEM.

Yeah, didn't knew that :x3:
I meant it's not worth Dirt, Dirt 2, Dirt 3, Dirt 4 name.
But, in the hindsight... it's not worth A N Y DiRT name. God forbid DiRT RALLY or DR 2.0.

Thanks for using names. You truly showed your greatness, I guess.
Don't know why you so pissed off on first place, it's not like I'm the alone with this opinion, you living under the rock ?
Just look at these comments here on this page for christ sake :whistling:
Or it's that or you working for the company, I can't see another explanation. In both cases... sorry I burst your soap balloon.
And I won't go down your level, I think you're very nice, caring and deeply thoughtful human being. Have a nice life.

What was that video about, a racing game or a lighting show?
I feel my itchy screen shot trigger finger twitching :rolleyes::redface::roflmao::roflmao: ...am I going over to the 'Dark Side' :confused:.

Joking aside, it does look flashy, maybe that's the trend / flavor of the month at the moment.

Is 'Dirt 5' using the 'Madness Engine' ?...if so and it has wheel support and FFB like PC3... I may be interested :confused: ;)

EDIT: Using the 'Ego' Engine from a early preview video

Personally I think Codemasters have lost the plot.
Their latest game releases seem to be directed for casual consoles players only nowadays.

I wish I had your delusion. Might make the world a slightly nicer place to occupy. It's just beast doing his usual self. It's great we only have to suffer him through the internet.

Next, we'll be called cretins by him for hoping for wheel support.

tey go smart way and split into two rally games, thats dirt 5 arcade and dirt rally simulator. i told earlier sms should go same way and make two games like shift arcade and pCARS simulators, but tey go dumb way and turned pCARS simulator into pCARS arcade and tried to sold us shift named pCARS. codemasters go smart way tis dirt for console pad players, and dirt rally for ones seeking realism

That game must be kind of a demo for the new consoles, so they did a flashy
exhibition to show all its new power, I guess. But, that much lighiting effects
at the same time look ridiculous and pretty unrealistic for a racing game.
