I'm sure you've spent hours hovering over the replay of Ken Block's Gymkhana videos. I know we have. If you're not familiar with rally/stunt car driver Ken Block, check out his video below. Just so much going on. The man is a drifting genius. Makes you wanta get right out there and fire up your Ford Fiesta and give it a go? Well that's about where the fantasy ends. Seriously, how many of us could soup up their ride with all the mods necessary and still drive it work everyday. But maybe there's an alternative way to experience Gymkhana. Enter the latest installment of the Dirt 3 off-road racing game.
Dirt 3 offers a huge world of different off-road racing modes. But the one we're gonna look at today is the Gymkhana mode. The game offers an intense training program for you to learn the art of Gymkhana. You'll master the drifting skills necessary to do some of the tricks Ken does in real life. Then once you're ready. You'll move on to the Play Ground. On Play Ground, you're free to go wild. You can challenge your friends by setting the clock and see who can do the most moves in the time aloud. This open ended form of game play makes for some interesting gaming parties. Reminds me of sitting around with the guys goofing around on GTA (non-mission mode). This time with a little more purpose. Till next time. Keep your tires in check.
Call of Duty fans have been storming the stores to pickup the latest and greatest in the franchise, Black Ops. This first person shooter the follows the life and missions of black ops personal who is being interrogated. You play through parts of the 1960's during the Cold War. This game is amazing. But what does this mean for OnScreenCars.com fans? Well the creators of the game teamed up with automaker Jeep to inject an on screen car in the game, a special Black Ops Edition 2011 Jeep Wrangler.
The Jeep in the game is designed to look period correct. While the Jeep in real life is modern. Checkout the trailer for the game below. The Black Ops Edition 2011 Jeep Wrangler is a modified version of their popular Rubicon Jeep. It's available in two and four door models and only in black on black color combination. If ya had a Black Ops Jeep why would you want it any other way? Just below the cowl line on the fender sports two Call of Duty: Black Ops logos. The off-road worthy Rubicon is wrapped in MOPAR tail light guards and MOPAR fuel filler cover. All the while riding on 32 inch tires mounted on blacked out Rubicon wheels. Front and rear locking differentials pushed by a 2-speed transfer case insures you're ready to grab all fours on the hash battlefield terrain.
Not to mention get you in time for your next ball game. Even NBA star Kobe Bryant has been seen sporting a new Black Ops Edition Jeep Wrangler. Baller Bryant was presented the ride prior to the season opener game. I wonder if he'll be taken in all the rugged features or not. I bet he's a closet gamer himself. Hey! There's nothing wrong with a little Black Ops on the side. Not a bad gift. The four door model retails for $33k while the two door just over $30k. Speaking of other stars I wonder how R. Lee Ermey would favor with one?
In closing I think Jeep has an awesome package with this one. This would not be the first non-military Jeep sporting a military look. Jeep has been known for production of special edition models like this. But I think this may be the first national release that is tailored after a video game. Great combination I must add. If you haven't played the game you can pick it up through our Amazon links below. Anything you buy through our links helps support our site. Till next time keep your battle machines ready as we bring you another OnScreenCars.com entry. Now drop down and give me 20!
Getting bored of Farmville? Car nuts are you looking for a Facebook game tailored more toward you? Then look no further. From the makers of Nitto 1320 Legends we bring you Car Town! Warning. What you're about to see is not a 3D racer with a million options and fine tuning. Nor is it a replacement for the beloved Motor City Online. But what you will find is an addictive friendly social browser game worthy of mention. So what's all the hipe?
Well imagine owning your own virtual cartoony garage. Much like Farmville, you run a business using your friends as employees. You manage your shop's resources and services. This is just the beginning. You can use the money you earn to build and customize your own cars. You can even race cars against other friends. As you advance in level you can unlock new virtual pieces and parts. You can pimp out your ride as well as your shop.
What I found interesting about the game is the fact they're using licensed cars, parts and addons. Not many free games can afford to offer such licensed content. But I think their business model aids the license providers as well as the company delivering the product. It's a win win situation for all. The cars in the game realistic enough to resemble what they are labeled. But cartoony enough to offer character that can be enjoyed by kids and adults of all ages. Similar to what Disney / PIXAR did for their movie Cars. Hat's off to the team at Cie Games. Till next time keep your bays full and your employees busy.
