Playsyde and Xboxyde Updates (PS3, 360)

Playsyde and Xboxyde have posted the following:
  • Q&A Session With Team DiRT (PS3)
    "With less than two weeks until the release of Colin McRae DiRT, we present to you this crazy-long Q&A session with the producer of the game, Alex Grimbley - all brought to you by the XCN network. It covers the most, as the talked-about framerate and Xbox Live mode, and, of course, the dirt itself. Colin McRae Dirt Q&A for XCN Answered by: Alex Grimbley, Producer, Codemasters."
  • Project Gotham Racing 4 Images (360)
    "Microsoft released these images of Project Gotham Racing 4 a while ago, but it seems like we forgot to post them back then. Some of you might have seen them, while some might enjoy them anyway!"
  • Interview With Turn10 (360)
    "Another big racing Q&A today, this time with turn10 and the Lead Designer on Forza Motorsport 2, Dan Greenawalt himself. Inside you'll find surprisingly much talk about Gran Turismo, plus the hype, cockpit view, upcoming Forza games and much more."
  • Q&A Session With Team DiRT (360)
    "Its been a few years since Colin McRae 2005 was released and it was a game we were really proud of, but we wanted to change the direction of the game to reflect the tastes of gamers. Offroad has become a lot more prevalent in motorsport and also the public consciousness and we really wanted to refresh the brand and take it forward in different ways. Its about creating something new while also keeping the existing McRae players satisfied. So we brainstormed lots of different names some of them quite amusing, but I wont go into them but Dirt really captures the dirtier, grittier, muddier aspects of the game."

Jeez, we have to wait ANOTHER day for the NBA Finals to start. How rediculous is that?

Anyways, not much going on other than a huge cram session w/ my studies. I'm really hoping to take the test early next week, possibly even Friday of this week, if I feel comfortable w/ it.

What's up with you?

I'm not as anxious for the Finals to start. I'm still enjoying the fact that we beat the Pistons for the Eastern crown (sorry Steve).

QOTD: Two cats, Saffron (orange) and Libby (black). We've had Saffron since she was a kitten (3 years) and we adopted Libby about a year ago (she's 4) to give Saffron a buddy. I was never a cat person until we got them, but they're pretty fun to have around.

QOTD: No, I'm allergic to both cats and dogs, so having a pet would suck.
