    Dirt Rally 2.0 is the best rally game ever made, from track design to feel to audio presentation - especially the natural way the co-driver reads off the pace notes.

    With the complete edition above, you get 13 point-to-point rally locations, with 12 routes total in each for a total of 160 rally routes - the most in any Colin McRae game, ever.

    It also has 13 RX locations which are presented really well, although not up to the likes of F1 2019.

    There are around 90 cars too, and support for online custom chanmpionships.

    It's a phenomenal game, and a world away from how it launched.

    I played a ton of OnRush hours a while back and besides my efforts to like it, it is so mediocre.
    You can join a game in the middle and lose, the spawn points sometimes are so broken (you are crashed instantly or too far from the rest), and the controls are kind of unresponsive.
    It is one of those game that you see a ton of potential of what could have been but, it is not.
    Hope the devs improve the design and make some second part that is good, and fun.
    It is more like they wanted the game to be cool, with those artworks, designs, music and style but, they kind of forgot important gameplay features.
    They almost went out of their way to alienate regular racing fans with that premise and didn't even execute it that well. Not to mention the absolutely genius move of booting you back to the menu in the middle of an event at the slightest internet or server issue in the single player portion of the game. It also felt like a chore to play. They focused so much on the takedowns but even just performing one feel like an effort because everyone is constantly boosting and you need to do as such to even keep pace with them let alone kill them. Burnout sold itself on vehicular carnage but at least it had the good sense to not omit the racing entirely, and takedowns are actually fun to pull off in it. Let's not forget how hideously overpriced Onrush was at launch as well for what is a meagre at best offering of game modes and tracks. What a trainwreck of a release it was.

    Payday 2 DLC's are on sale right now... the game is awful but good TA ratio even if it does take me hours to do some achievements solo.

    Borderlands 3 on sale at Best Buy and Amazon for $12.99 today. Not sure why such a huge price cut but kind of interesting. I may still hold out for a cheaper edition that includes all the DLC but that price is tempting me for sure.
    Rest in peace Ryan Hayward, a fellow gamer taken too soon.

    I guess the theme this week was racing or racing simulation. Yea, not a fan of the genre.

    It's absolutely impossible to play on a controller for me. I've tried many custom setting suggestions and in all cases can barely keep a car on the road. It's a real shame as I've always read it is one of the best and most satisfying simulation experiences.
