Guerrilla Games Working On New IP

From Guerrilla's New Project to DiRT 3 Debut - News Roundup 1st August 2010

Killzone 3 has been dominating the PS3 shooter headlines recently, but apparently Guerrilla games are hard at work on another IP down in the skunkworks. In a recent interview with Dutch game magazine Control, Guerrilla's Managing Director Helman Hulst revealed that they'd polled their employees and designers to come up with a new concept that's now in development.

Don't get too excited- as this new project is apparently still deep in the concept stages. Considering their FPS credentials, the smart money's on them developing another shooter... but we'd be delighted if Guerrilla spread their wings and worked on something a little different this time around. An RTS? Maybe some action platforming? Something PS Move-related? We'll let you know as soon as we hear anything. [Exophase]

SWTOR Update: Welcome To Nar Shaddaa

From Guerrilla's New Project to DiRT 3 Debut - News Roundup 1st August 2010

Bioware has updated the official Old Republic website with details of a new exotic location. Non Star Wars fans should merrily scroll down to the epic testosterone-fueled DiRT trailer below; but if you know your Sinkar from your Sluissi, this might just make your day. Welcome to Nar Shaddaa!

One of the moons of the Hutt homeworld, the infamous Nar Shaddaa presents a hive of scum and villany that puts Mos Eisley to shame... and will provide a wealth of opportunities for Jedis to right wrongs and Sith to get up to all kinds of mischief. Smugglers, fugitives and powerful corrupt trade organisations all call Nar Shaddaa Home- and we can't wait to get involved. [SWTOR]

DiRT 3 Trailer Brings it Home

From Guerrilla's New Project to DiRT 3 Debut - News Roundup 1st August 2010

Is the boring Sunday afternoon starting to drag? Need something to inject a little adrenaline into your post-lunch malaise? Well here's a much-needed dose of insane rallying, huge explosions, stunts and distilled awesome courtesy of the new DiRT 3 teaser trailer and Ken Block's Subaru WRX STi. Hit it.

On a serious note, the trailer shows off a range of environments, weather conditions and some new epic Gymkhana-style stunts. I'll be keeping a close eye on this one... after I breathlessly watch the trailer a few more times.

Dirt looks the same garbage as before although hopefully they've finally dropped Colin McRae's name from the title given the focus on being America, whereas Colin McRae was an incredible rally driver Ken Block is utterly hopeless at the WRC and nothing more than a showboater.

McRae was well known and liked in america to those that knew the sport.

And? Those that know the sport will know that this is nothing like it and shouldn't have Colin McRae's name on it, none of the Dirt games should.

john mate have a bit of dam respect. he died from a helicopter crash, he was known to be a rally legend, so why the hell shouldn't his name be on the cover? if you knew anything about the series you should know that he was on the dirt 2 cover as tribute. an i hope that he is on it for this one too. when you actually have some morals come back. but for now.... F*** OFF!

Actually I typed that because I have a lot of respect for Colin McRae, rather ironically your reply proves you clearly don't or simply don't have the faintest clue about the rally world. He wasn't on Dirt as a tribute (unless Codemasters predicted his death as the first game was published before he died), he was there as a money spinner as he had been for the last few despite having nothing to do with the series latterly. That was acceptable for the Xbox/PS2 games as they were still loosely based around the WRC but not for the newer consoles where the games aren't even proper rally games anymore.

For Dirt however using his name is just a total insult to Colin McRae - the game no longer has anything to do with the WRC as it's been completely Americanised with Ken Block at the centre of it. While Colin McRae had his ups and downs, there's no doubt he was an outstanding rally driver so it makes me sick to see his name on a game featured so heavily around Ken Block whose contributions to the WRC are so far to write his car off completely on the first stage of each rally.

That's fine if they want to Americanise it and go for the biggest audience but they should have stopped using McRae's name for the first Dirt game and certainly stopped it after he passed away rather than take advantage of the licensing that allowed them to keep on using it. It would be better for people to not know his name that only see it associated with a racing game that has nothing to do with Colin McRae's far better racing.

I did much prefer the style of the old CMR games, DiRT doesn't seem to have much in common with that series.

Never been a decent racing game with a known drivers name on it since Nigel Mansells Formula 1 Challenge on SNES
