Codies Weekly Update 04-07-14
Today we found a SNES… You can guess how much “research” is being done in the office this afternoon. NBA Jam, FIFA, Micro Machines – all under scrutiny… We haven’t managed to find our copy of Mario Kart Yet though…
This Week’s Big News
This week it’s the GRID Autosport European release. Yes we know that is was technically last week but you guys had only just got your hands on it and now the tyre smoke has settled we’re over the moon with the feedback we’ve received so far. Here’s a collection of our favourite tweets:

Round 2 of the Codies League Championship took place this weekend and huge congratulations to Formula PlayStation on the win. The season is anybody’s to win and we can’t wait to see how things go down in Spa next week.
DiRT fan Avenga76 made internet fame this week with his totally kick ass gaming rig, (seriously… it puts ours to shame). He made us even more jealous when he sent us some pictures of his kick ass car too:
Team DiRT has been discussing a video that cropped up online this week. Can we, (and should we), try to recreate this? We know you guys can be pretty vocal about your cockpit views so we’d love to hear what you think. Fire us a tweet @dirtgame
