To be fair -- not much else launched in the UK last week to challenge Zumba Fitness' unbeatable reign
There was movement elsewhere however. Cars 2 climbed into second, while Call Of Juarez: The Cartel sticked to the top three. Elsewhere there's really not much else to say: regular favourites DiRT 3, FIFA 11 and Call Of Duty: Black Ops all charted. Someone topple Zumba Fitness, please. Zumba..
Zumba Fitness is still top of the UK sales charts this week, beating out Codemasters' DiRT 3 and Activision's Transformers: Dark Of The Moon to take the top spot again. The top ten was familiar territory this month, with Top Spin 4 and Virtua Tennis 4 both taking up slots in the aftermath of Wimbledon, and favourites such as L.A. Noire, Brink...
Despite a number of seriously scathing reviews over the weekend, Duke Nukem Forever has knocked L
A. Noire</a> off its perch at the top of the UK sales charts, scoring a number one finish for the long-in-development FPS. L.A. Noire finished up in second, while Sucker Punch's new superhero escapade finished up just behind Zumba Fitness in...
A. Noire</a> has held onto its spot aloft the UK sales charts, in a week where very little has changed in the top ten. LEGO Pirates Of The Caribbean and DiRT 3 swapped places from last week, finishing second and third respectively. Elsewhere, it's your usual selection of casual and pseudo-casual experiences. Knock yourself out. L.A. Noire...
A. Noire</a> has held onto the UK sales charts top spot for a second week running, beating off Codemasters' semi-sim DiRT 3 which finished up in a respectable second. LEGO Pirates Of the Caribbean, Zumba Fitness and Brink all held onto their high positions to round out the top five, with familiar faces such as Crysis 2 and Call Of Duty:...
DiRT 3 currently commands a MetaCritic of 88
That's right up there with L.A. Noire. Codemasters has just sent us a note to remind you all that the game is out today. You should probably do the sensible thing and buy it.</em>
We played DiRT 2 through to completion and then some last year
One thing we always lamented about the game was a serious lack of DLC. We would have happily splashed out on more tracks and cars, but the content never really came. Thankfully, the brilliant DiRT 3 will not fall to the same fate. A bunch of trophy leaks have revealed four new DLC packs...
DiRT 3's pretty hot on this gymkhana malarkey
We still haven't quite got a grip on what the activity entails, but it seems to focus pretty heavily on doing ridiculous things in a rally car. While we'd probably burst into tears at the prospect of driving an expensive car so recklessly in real-life, we can bask in the glory of professional driver Ken Block going crazy in the embedded YouTube video..
Man, if we had a super-expensive rally car and an empty car-park, we'd totally start doing stunts in it too
We're not so sure we'd like to share the action with a friend though. Things look a bit scary when the cars are like millimetres away from colliding. We suppose that's what makes Gymkhana so extreeeeeme. In short: DiRT 3 continues to look proper amazing.
Upcoming rally-racer DiRT 3 is a game after our own heart
It totally knows how to party. Screw nightclubs and supermodels, we're all about rally cars and cardboard robots. DiRT 3 gets what's up, yo. According to Rock Paper Shotgun, DiRT 3 will boast a multiplayer party mode consisting of three unique mini-games. On the agenda is Invasion, where you'll smash up robot shaped cardboard cut-outs in..
We played DiRT 2 for an outrageous amount of time
When we got the platinum trophy, we'd probably put in close to 40 hours with the rally title. To be honest, despite absolutely adoring the previous entry, DiRT 3's been bubbling under our radar a bit. Well it had been. Now Codemasters has released this amazing slow-motion trailer showing off Group B rallying. Hype levels rising... Rising...
We loved DiRT 2
The game's combination of simulation and arcade rally racing was perfect, leaving us gagging for more after seriously prolonged sessions behind the wheel. Naturally, we're a little bit hyped for DiRT 3, which has just been given a May 24th worldwide release window. Codemasters reckons that DiRT 3 will have double the track content than its predecessor, with an emphasis on more..
The most fun thing about DiRT 2 (aside from its lavish presentation and addictive progression) was the way the cars handled
It wasn't a simulation game, nor it was it an arcade game — it was somewhere in between. That made sliding around corners ridiculously satisfying. Codemasters clearly understands the strength of its drift mechanic, with this DiRT 3 trailer focusing on a "trick..
Codemaster's generally put out super pretty games
Codemaster's DiRT franchise in particular looks pretty great. Is it any real surprise that first shots of DiRT 3 are amazing, then? Not really no. </em>
Do you know what's better than DiRT 2? DiRT 2 in the rain, or, more efficiently, DiRT 3
That's right valued readers, Codies' new racer will feature brand-new weather effects. This target render of a rainy route shows some of Codemasters' ambition with the new title, while other screens show off snow and dusty tracks. But rain! Look, it's raining! Slippy-slidey.
Codemasters released the first trailer for DiRT 3 over the weekend, and have followed up the reveal with a blow-out in this month's EDGE magazine
In the issue, Codies game designer Matt Horsman describes it as "the biggest rally game ever made". They're not aiming small, then. Critically, the magazine notes that the festival setting of the last game has been removed. Hopefully the..
As promised, Codemasters has released the first trailer for DiRT 3
It doesn't really reveal much about the game, but it does have us totally pumped. The trailer shows a Ford driving through a number of different environments, before drifting beneath an exploding truck. We're hyped as we loved DiRT 2. How about you guys?
That, right there, presented in glistening digital format, is your first look at Codemasters' DIRT 3
We've known that the rally franchise was getting a sequel for some time, but we're about to get a better idea about the game's direction this weekend. The game's set to air its debut trailer on ESPN during the X-Games. No doubt it'll be on YouTube within minutes. Until then, you'll just have to..
