As avid video gamers that have a preference for whatever form of high-octane, four-wheeled racing action, we still have a soft spot for the down-and-smoky world of DiRT 3. The latest installment of the game isn’t scheduled to hit stores until May 24, 2011, but we’re already getting some good preview videos of what to expect when the time comes for us to part ways with our hard-earned money.

You certainly won’t confuse this game for the posh and shiny world of Gran Turismo 5, but what you do get is plenty of smoke, burning tires, and off-the-rails action. To give us an idea of what to expect in the game, resident drifters Ken Block and Tanner Foust - or at least their virtual likeness - slide their drift-ready Ford Fiestas through a make-shift course.

Interested in shredding your tires while performing burnouts for hours? DiRT 3 will give you all that and more when the game drops next week. For now, you can check out the video of Block and Foust doing what they do best.

Automotive Aftermarket Expert -
Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I have already played the two previous versions before, and I would say that those are both good. I do have that they will be able to maintain that for this one.

Yeah, I think that they will be including Block’s settings as an unlockable for the game. But aside from that, what I am looking forward to here is the gameplay.

Hey, did they say that Ken Block’s car would be included in the game? That one would certainly be a good idea since I really want to play using his settings.

Well, it’s nice to hear that they listened to their fans in forums and Facebook to create a game that is like a simulation rally! Well, I do hope that the next announcement for the released date for this game, would be final. I can’t wait to play this game!

I haven’t tried a drifting game just yet, so I probably would be grabbing this one once they have released it. Good thing that they have included Kevin Block in the roster.
