Hi IMG, have you seen our two recent DiRT 3 podcasts on YouTube?

In the audio podcast Edwin and Brad chat about DiRT 3 Complete Edition’s features, including new modes, DLC, and cross-platform online multiplayer:

Then there's the video podcast, which marks the start of our brand new Hints & Tips series. In this episode, Edwin and Tom (from our QA department) show you how to get the fastest lap times not just in DiRT 3 but in racing games in general.

What do you think? We're well and truly open to any feedback you might have.

Even bad feedback?

;)

I think it was neat. Nice bit about cross-platform MP, which has been a thorn in some other games in the past.

I've been a bad Feral customer. I am behind on my Feral podcasts which I am subscribed to in iTunes but keep forgetting to check on.

Okay, I got the link to the video in another tab now and I do own the game. i am mending my terrible ways and will go watch right now. Thank you.

I'm back...

That was cool. I enjoyed watching that and learned some things. I enjoy racing but am not a pro by any means. Stuff like this is helpful to someone like me and I'm sure others. I subscribed to the YouTube channel and i think I get mailings from Feral which I hope let me know when these appear. I think I did already know about this one and hadn't gotten to it yet.

It's nice of you guys to add value like this and it is appreciated. I will look forward to future editions and I'll probably refer to this one again when playing Dirt 3, GRID, F1, etc.

I hadn't had the time to listen to the podcast, yet, but I liked the video. Really well made and informative. And it explains why Edwin seems to have the top time on every track in Grid 2 on my friend list on Steam... ;)

I think Edwin has the top time in every track in Grid 2 due to programmer shenanigans.  At least that's what I'd do.  Nice vid, but don't have time for podcasts anymore.  It would make it more fun if everybody used Chinese accents instead of British (which you guys do very well by the way).  And though the video had sort of a car chase, it would be much more palatable if there were boobs and explosions thrown in there too.

Perfect. A lot of the tips Ed and Tom give in the video aren't specific to DiRT 3.

Actually, yes! The lap times video is the first in a new Hints & Tips series we're doing, so any suggestions on what we could do to improve future episodes would be awesome. :)
