Driveclub‘s release timer (at least for North America) is now clocking just 11 hours, and virtual drivers are warming their engines for the upcoming PS4 exclusive racer.
10,5 hours left until my preload becomes playable :) Can't wait to drive the Atom myself, hype intensifies :D
Any idea when the reviews will start being released? Thanks. Abriael, thank you!
9 AM EDT.
@Abriel so much for 9 AM EDT Monday...it's already 4 something in the pm. Unless it's Tuesday on the release day which would be quite odd.
@Master-H: I meant tomorrow, not today.
Should I be nervous, Abriael?
If you have PS+ download it for free and do your own review. Reviews are all over the place these days.
@GribbleGrunger I expect it will get 7's - 9's, and most of the low scores will come from the fact that those reviewers are scoring based on the lack of content, even though they already know that weather, photo mode, more cars, tracks, etc... will all be coming by the end of the year. I've heard no complaints about gameplay thus far, and most people love it's arcade-sim style, and as we can all say the game is beautiful, and sounds great. Having strong Gameplay, amazing Graphics, and great Audio are good core to start off with, it all depends on how forgiving they are on the content and how good the entire Club and Social aspects of the game are.
@amnalehu And that is a beautiful thing. So while it will be great to finally get press reviews, it will be cool to get a ton of community feedback.
@Abizzel1 "most of the low scores will come from the fact that those reviewers are scoring based on the lack of content, even though they already know that weather, photo mode, more cars, tracks, etc... will all be coming by the end of the year." Are you saying that reviewers should give DC points (or fail to deduct points) for features that aren't available yet? What about people who don't have internet access? How will they get the extra features? Is it fair for a reviewer to try to predict the quality of future DLC even though many people will have no access to it? NO other games are given points in launch reviews for future DLC, why should DC? How can any review that ignores the missing content be taken seriously? Your comment is EXACTLY as I predicted: http://n4g.com/user/blogpos...
Yep, only 10 hours left!
They'll be all over N4G when I get up in the morning then, that's something to look forward too, haha.
Lol. Gribble is going to give it one more shot. You tried for us Gribble. :>P I admire your silence under pressure Abriael lol.
I'm so excited for this game, but I'm not sure if i can commit to the full version yet /: I'm gonna play the PS plus version and decide if i want to buy the extra content or not.
That's the right way to do it.Why anyone wouldn't want to try it out first is beyond me.They are offering the demo with nothing striped away,at the same time the game comes out,so it's not like you have to wait to play it.I don't want to see anybody whining tomorrow that they wasted $60 and the game was not what they expected.But if you guys have more money than you know what to do with or just love to gamble by all means buy the whole game tonight.I won't stop you.lol
This should have been a launch title. Sony fans should not have to wait a Year for a racing game. And now this fairly standard racer has to try and compete with FH2, the most revolutionary racing game since Gran Turismo, Project Gotham and the 1st Forza.
It doesn't have to compete with a game that isn't on the same platform. If someone has both systems they will just buy both.
"most revolutionary" Ha ha
"And now this fairly standard racer has to try and compete with FH2, the most revolutionary racing game" Hummm maybe you've not heard but the sales reports are coming in now on Forza Horizon 2 the as you put it "the most revolutionary racing game". The X1 gamers have now spoken about FH2 and they say it a real LEMON! They don't want FH2 and they didn't buy FH2. So looks like the "standard racer" DriveClub will compete and win this race with FH2... Lol
They're too busy trolling Driveclub streams on Twitch. The sodium levels are unreal. Very unhealthy.
better delay and make a good racing game tha doing like MS with forza...2 forza games in 6 months...epic milking fail
Yeah maybe they should have put in cardboard crowds and cardboard foliage last second or baked in lighting to make it for launch?
I remember reading an issue of OXM that they wanted to release a Forza game yearly, just how COD was doing it. I fully expect Forza 6 by next fall...
No sure if serious
when forza will surpass overall sales of gran turismo and scores then talk until then just stop forza was never a system seller gran turismo is each forza game has never surpassed 5mil except ONE forza while all gt games have and the biggest been 10.5mil GT still remains the best simulator so far forza just trying to be aka semi simulator
I wish SONY would learn how to do regional unlocks.
When we gonna get the free ps+ edition in uk?Tomorrow?
I'd read this before throwing down $60 on DriveClub. http://www.gamespot.com/for... I'm downloading the demo and will play that tomorrowThe fact that weather & Photo mode won't be out until Dec. There's no was to change or adjust the difficulty of the A.I. races. Additionally, you can't adjust your ABS, TCS, or STM to cater the challenge to your skill level. Seems this game is still in Beta condition. Lots of stuff missing.
Is that the BEST you can find to try and downplay? The article says that it's "a tough racer with no assists", but you are trying to make that seem like not being able to adjust your assists means that the game is missing lots of stuff by something that is an intentional focus. Why would anyone use an article that provides 95% positives about DriveClub, as the basis of their worry of spending $60 on it? The points you make about missing stuff has absolutely no grounding on lack of value when players know that those features will be FREE later in the year, and that they don't have to spend an extra penny on them.
60 dollars ? lol glad i live in europe..39euros
FREE PS+ version for me. I cancelled my preorder after all the terrible reviews this game got. If I ever do decide to get the retail version it won't be until after the game price drops to $25 or less. the game is definitely not worth $60 or 39 Euros. Glad I live in America where I don't have to wait for certain games.
This game has no idea what it wants to be - to me it looks like a boring racer with lifeless tracks. Watching these videos almost made me fall asleep. The graphics do seem good at times but I think this has hidden what is an unfinished dull game. This is not the game sony fans are still waiting for. Bad timing with ms continuing to release good exclusives like fh2 which clearly blows this racer out of the park.
I don't think the game is the one with the identity crisis...
Only on PS4 baby. It's a very exclusive club that only accepts the best.
No adjustable car settings and basic livery editor makes this a bargain bin or Craigslist game for me.
Why have we not seen one review on this game??? Ridiculous
