Those of you who expressed interest in AVSClub have friend requests pending. Like a dumbass I didn't realize you could only invite friends... I have a connection right now with an ability to add people, hopefully it lasts a while!

Hi guys, I am sorry but the available slots are full, since clubs are limited to six slots. Everyone before lovswr and nothru22 should have an invite now although I think there is one who has not accepted my friend request as of last night. I will check today if I can get connected. At least one club invite has been accepted so the club is now valid and we are currently at level 3!

I am sure we will need more clubs for AVS so please go ahead and create a new AVS club, we can challenge each other to club races and have a competition, it'll be fun.

Just realized I could use the Playstation app to check friend status, looks like all friends for the club have accepted, so I just need to check in Driveclub. (If the DC app wasn't delayed too I could presumably check now, oh well).

Different strokes I guess. I didn't like NFS, hence why I got rid of it within a week or so. I don't get the same vibe. I already got my refund from Sony for DC so I can race with the free version.

6 player clubs is a letdown. I still don't know what the 11 month wait was for. Looks like I need another game to meet my $100 for the month. I might have to cave and get COD.

FH2 was a letdown graphically? Its one of the best games I have seen so far this gen, it's eerily realistic at times, especially after a rain and the sun is just peeking through the clouds again.

I'm the total opposite. I find DC, along with my kids, to be horribly boring and devoid of fun along with lackluster graphics. On top of that, the network features have been down since I bough it. FH on the other hand, graphically is beautiful, is light and airy, and is a complete blast. I find myself grinning with FH, much like I did when playing NFS, but with DC my daughter summed it up nicely by saying "just turn it off". I'll be selling it immediately.

Maybe the demo looks worse. I can't remember. I thought both racing games looked similar to each other.

Once you're going 200 mph both games look the same, blurry.

Can we please not turn this thread into a comparison thread? Both games are very well done graphically but have radically different aesthetics and priorities, so many people will gravitate to one or the other naturally. But this thread is about DriveClub, not FH2. Thanks.

I'm still waiting for the PS+ version of DC but that's gonna be it for me. I'm realizing there are way too many games for me to play right now.

PS4 resale values have really tanked lately, mostly due to this game I assume?


I guess its finally catching on that DriveClub and Infamous Second Son are the only 2 notable next gen exclusives for the console dating back to the Nov. 2013 launch, and all the way through late February 2015 when 1886 The Order, now totally questionable also, might show up. That's 15 months of broken "Greatness Awaits" promises. Still waiting...


Terrible timing, I can't get anyone to bite at $325 for the console + Last of Us. There are still several must have day one games to be released this year so the extra funds would be helpful. Hopefully Sony can turn it around from a games and network perspective so we can get back to actually enjoying games, on all platforms, like last gen.

Nah no console war here. The FH demo had parts that looked decent and may not represent the end product but my overall impression of the xbone is just not very high. Might be my TV not sure but even Netflix looks blah to me. I'm just looking at that I don't play it, few games interest me on it, and I have several games I'd rather have. It's just a turning point for me keeping the dust collector. Where I can turn it into DC, Evil Within, Bloodborne, and something else like Destiny DLC. Just my 2 cents. I'd rather play DC even if it's a bit lesser just because my friends list is much beefier on this side.

I think FH is exactly like NFS minus cops. Open world, stop to initiate challenge, points for everything you do, levels of some sort. I don't know the open world stuff is cool and all but if I'm doing open world give me GTA so I can destroy things in the process. I'd rather do tracks and shave seconds vs dodging traffic. That and the whole sports car driving in field part just didn't jive with me.

I'll let you know. I think the PS+ version of this game will ruin the sales for it. I would of kept it but with a free version and the fact that I was only going to play with friends so I was best off getting my money back and still enjoying it. But enough with my thoughts on it. Ill keep it in the BF thread where can discuss everything with no complaints.

DC be a lot more enjoyable if it actually worked as promised, I want to play it and enjoy it, but I just feel its a waste to do so until the servers are fixed and I can actually use my gameplay to contribute to my club. Very alarming that its going on five days now, and still no advancement on this issue.

What do people think about the penalties? I hate them, mostly because 95% of the time it seems I am incurring them due to actions of the AI. Thankfully it seems the criticism has gotten to Evolution, and based on their tweets, they may be going away.

Man, I beat one of the drift challenges and I think it was purely luck, its just hitting that E-brake and threading the car around the corner just right and I suck at it.

Just curious....


If you were brave enough to jump into this broken game, why were you were brave enough to jump into the digital (no going back version) and why?


I thought Walmart, and every other B&M had a footprint as far as Alaska and beyond. No out, zero trade in value ($40 minimum at the moment) seems like a really bad idea.

This game looks pretty cool and it's $50 for Plus members, my xbone got me several games and Sony is running a spend $100 get $15 back deal. The other games I got will be played long term so digital won't bother me. I have enough left for one more game and I'm thinking LBP.

So I'm downloading DC now

OK, I totally get the convince aspect but it seems like so many people are throwing money away at $59.99+ blindly in one shot and this game is the perfect example for not doing that. Its broken! It was pretty much the last hope for PS4 being relevant until late 2015.


I can't imagine anyone being happy with this purchase, day one and beyond without time to work out the kinks plus pay extra for more content. Destiny is another example of this. It will take another $35 to possibly (hopefully) justify the purchase. Why not guarantee a return on investment and move on to other great games - exclusives or otherwise?

Dam thumbs up is next to reply on Tapatalk. OK so BF4 was a complete turd I bought digitally sight unseen. That one pissed me off and shut down any desire for EA products. So why buy something in a similar condition? You'd think I would learn by now. My expectation/hope is that DC is treated like KZ was. I loved KZ...a lot. Not just the game either. Sony/Guerilla provided awesome support and corrected issues promptly and offered great free content plus a cheap DLC. Compare that to EA/Dice. Their also seemingly up front about DC and it's issues, debatable but if I still can't play online in 6 months my mood will be very sour indeed. They have one chance and if it's a failure lesson learned and I won't go back or will be more cautious.
