Took me around 85 minutes to finish it. Controls felt solid, the slow-mo alert thingy is pretty cool and helpful. But I'm really jonesing for some Dave Hayter.

I agree. I don't feel like I was jipped or anything by the asking price versus the amount of content in the game, but if I were to voice (harr harr) any sort of complaint, it would be with Kiefer Sutherland's voice-work. It's fine, but it doesn't seem like quite the same character when Snake speaks in this game.

I'm all over it. Quite curious how it sets up MGS 5 proper, short game length or no.
Unsure why MGS has become the go-to punching bag for a lot of people when the series has been of consistently high quality for years now.

I made a new profile with autosaving off from the start and I was somehow able to finish event 3 (which is one of the rally events which froze up before). I also didn't touch any assist settings before the event (doubt that did anything, but who knows).

Woo! Will keep driving til the wheels fall off!

-edit- Hah! I turned assists off again when firing up event 1 (the other rally event) and it froze as usual.

Freezes related to turning off assists? What in the world is happening?

-edit edit- Tried the event again with assists at their default. Still froze. Did I just run into some weird fluke before? I'm so confused!

@beetlebummed: I'm shaking my first in envy at you at the moment. I'm so bummed! I've been wanting to play Dirt 3 for a long time now. I've googled and googled and googled for solutions and nothing works.
I can finish the first Rally X event just fine, but either of the two other events (both of which are Rally events) freeze at the loading screen after the event. If only you could repeat events and still get points... The one event I can finish gave me 50, but I can't unlock more events til I get 100.
On one hand, if my system and the games on demand version of Dirt 3 simply will not mix, I'm only out $5; but on the other hand... 5 bucks wasted!

Will continue to try different things and update if I find any fixes.

(Sales are during the week of February 23rd, 2014)

For those who might be interested, there have been some crazy sales going on for Xbox 360 games. Dark Souls for 5 bucks! MGS: Revengeance for 15!

Be careful though! I bought Dirt 3 for 5 bucks, but for some reason, I cannot progress past the first set of races without my console freezing on the loading screen.

Anyone know what's up with this? I figured games on demand versions of games wouldn't have issues like this. (I've already tried clearing the cache, loading my save from another device, using different cars, turning off autosave, as well as deleting and redownloading the game to try and fix it to no avail) My 360 is a slim model, and it's relatively new, so it can't be hardware issues.

They finally make the sales on XBL worthwhile, but sell games that don't work. U.U

There's so much snark in video game reporting... (Granted, I don't think the Ouya is very good either.)

Because people who play video games hate video games apparently.

@britxmenyuan: You cannot change the language on the fly, nor can you change it between play sessions on the front-end menu.

Hey folks. Quick, only slightly complex question:

I own Pkmn Y and have been enjoying it in English, but I also study Japanese and would love to pick up a copy of X and use it as a vocabulary study tool, since once you pick a language setting, you're locked to it unless (I'm guessing) you wipe your save.

My question: Does the language selection prompt at the front-end carry between versions? I recall reading somewhere in the manual that some settings carry over, but I've yet to find of if that applies to the language setting.

If you own both versions, did the game prompt you to select a language upon the initial boot of both?

Thanks!
