Dirt 3: Mytube

, | Game diaries

Having just started Dirt 3, I can’t race a race to save my life. This is partly because I have too much pride to dial down the realism settings, which means I’m using a handling model that ensures I spend a lot of time getting up close and personal with Finnish trees. Fortunately, unlike the previous Dirt games, I can set the realism separately from the skill level of the other drivers. So for now, I’m my own worst enemy. My kingdom for a patch of asphalt!

And although I haven’t figured out the driving, I’m already in love with the ability to snip a piece of a replay and then upload it directly and without fuss to a YouTube account. So what you can see up there is the single most impressive feat I’ve accomplished. I’m sure the people who live in that house were impressed.
