Rally Madness Part 2 & Google Chrome for Mac (but not yet)

Posted in Gaming, Internet, Rants, Video Games by Taylor Dobbs on 06/03/2009

Well since yesterday’s post, I have been on YouTube some more watching Ken Block videos with my jaw on the floor (and drooling onto my keyboard cover). I won’t go into the drawn out details of my newest idol, but I will say that he’s the face of the upcoming racing sequel, DiRT 2 (Game Site). He hints to new features built onto the previous rally racing game such as jump events, and maybe even some trick driving (see yesterday’s post). I will definitely be checking that one out (and by checking out I mean pre-ordering and waiting outside for the mailman).

In other news, Google Chrome is yet to be released for mac. The browser has been out since last year on PCs, but Google’s only hint at the mac version is that it’s “coming along nicely,” according to the tech news blog. Come on, Google. We know we can’t get any of the best games, but at least let us have the best browser!

Like nearly every other eighteen-year-old guy in this country, I am nearly obsessed with cars. Unlike many of them, I am more interested in the driving piece than the car piece. I’d rather take a Honda Civic out on a track for a day than drive a Corvette around on the streets for a month. As a driving enthusiast, I’m naturally drawn to rally racing. I won’t say that there isn’t a great deal of skill involved in driving NASCAR – doing anything at speeds upwards of 120 miles per hour takes a lot of skill – but I will say that I get much more of a thrill out of watching cars go 90 through trees sideways.

What brings me to this on a tech/media blog? Well for one, I love this stuff too much not to write about it. But second, I saw an unprecedented piece of media today that I thought I would share. (more…)
