I think there is evidence that some of the launch titles needed a bit more time to polish given how killzone had presentation issues and the added months for driveclub. The visuals are definitely good and it boggles the mind with the potential of the new hardware, we might just be nearing that point where visual details will reach disturbing levels

@chikenfriedrice: Though not the same I knew that Driveclub would be competing with Project Cars which is the most beautiful racer I have seen but more recent videos and images show that Driveclub will deliver for sure. The only thing that I'm curious about is if they will be able to deliver with the handling of the cars. Otherwise I'm super excited and for the first time in my life I'm really into driving games. GT5 was ok to play but these days driving games are where it's at.

I honestly don't understand how the weather system is labeled dynamic if you have to pick your conditions pre race. If a race is 1-3 minutes long and you pick to race in rainy weather then as soon as you start the race your rain is on a time limit right. RIGHT. In Forza you have NO CONTROLover the particles in the atmosphere AT ALL and it's open world with better physics. Title should be changed to simply Driveclub's Weather system. But then again I guess when you look at it DC weather partially falls in the definition of dynamic it's just not random dynamic weather.

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/07/08/first-look-driveclubs-dynamic-weather-in-action/

"You can expect it to change dynamically and unpredictably while you race — because we've designed it to be just like real weather systems," said Perkins. "Lots of things play into this, like elevation, wind speed and temperature. Spots of rain can become torrential downpours or transition into blizzards, quickly or slowly, and when the clouds clear up the tracks will dry out too. So if you’re in Norway, for example, you’ll face heavier snow when you’re racing atop the mountains and much lighter snow or sleet when you descend to a lower altitude. Lots of things play into this, like elevation, wind speed and temperature. We can even adjust all the way to zero visibility conditions too – the only limit will be the need to balance things for fun and usability."

How customizable will the weather be?

Alex Perkins: "We want you to be able to create epic races that you want to share with your friends because they took your breath away. Just like we do with time of day, skies and time lapse speed, we’re going to add lots of options for you to be able to adjust how the weather plays out in your challenges. We don’t want to just offer fixed settings for “rain” or “snow,” we want it to be dynamic and exciting. We’re still working on how best to present this to you and we’ll show more closer to launch."

All of the earth atmosphere thing has been done in DriveClub only far more detailed. It has BY FAR more attention to detail than FH2. FACT. To dispute this is futile. DriveClub is by far the most detailed racer to ever be created thus far.

"You can expect it to change dynamically and unpredictably while you race - How is it unpredictable if you pick your weather conditions? riddle me that.

How long is your average race? 1-3 minutes max this is not Forza where you are racing across a whole country there are only 55 Tracks in DC. How much weather effects can you fit in 1-3 minute races, how can it snow in 1-3 minutes then dry up, same for rain. DC Beginning of race clear skies, 2 minute mark downpour, end of race clear skies again. Forza skies change color depending on time of day, weather not dictated by length of race because when you are done racing it's still raining or snowing in the world

How customizable will the weather be? HE said the weather was unpredictable in the first paragraph then went on to describe how customizable the weather will be - "We want you to be able to create epic races that you want to share with your friends because they took your breath away. Just like we do with time of day, skies and time lapse speed, we’re going to add lots of options for you to be able to adjust how the weather plays out in your challenges."

You should go look at Forza's weather system before you say that, Forza actually has a persistent working model of Earth's atmosphere, we've already seen sun shower's, rainbow's, and different sky color's from Forza. Not too mention with a working atmosphere model, the atmosphere will be different in the Alps from what you see when you racing on the rocky coastline of the Mediterranean. It's time to admit that the only thing DC has going for it is visuals and Forza has everything else including Italy and France.

You can have it in real time where the weather changes whenever it feels, or fixed. There are OPTIONS.

We will see how these games will be. Why are lems hating on DC and saying that it's fact that it will be a bad game? Just wait for the release ffs. They are totally different games really. One is more like PGR, and the other is more like NFS Rivals but on a bigger scale.

I said it before, and I'll say it again. DriveClub is going to be pure euphoria the whole damn time!!

Exclusive to the PlayStation 4!!

But I get ya, I am just saying about the weather system is all. I said the gameplay will be good, you said it will be mediocre as if it was written in the stone. Have you played it? fact is, you don't really know. You came to this thread to troll and you kept relentlessly doing it. Not knowing when to give it a rest. Then you say it's a 'Shill' because I say DC won't be shit. As if it's fact that it will be. You are the one making facts from your own conjecture. You really don't have a clue. And the worst part is, you can't argue with you because you derail the fucking conversation. So I suggest you just stop coming on here because right about now, you have been melting down daily.

If you thought that bx4's quote was anything other than him being a rabid fanboy lashing out at you for not praising something on his preferred platform (xbox1) over something else than you have given this fool waaaaaay too much credit.

He originally used that "shill" argument/quote against lostrib...LOSTRIB god sakes, because he said something that wasn't in favor of xbox.

We both know that lostrib is anything but a sony fanboy as he has argued against sony fans in the majority of his posts. However this bx4 guy called lostrib a shill because he took one instance to point out where PS4 was better than xbox one at something.

Xb4 is the highest caliber of rabid fanboy and for him to even attempt to use that shill quote against another poster is the biggest joke I have seen in a while. Don't bother taking any of his arguments about anything related to Sony vs xbox seriously because he is completely blind to anything but hearing someone say xbox one is the best.

Show one post where I shill Curt Shilling? You are handbook 101 for being a shill.

You hype praise on anything Sony related. Never a negative thought. You are the definition of a Shill.

You would be banned first post off of GAF. You know this to be true.

You have zero objective thought when it comes to anything Sony related. You are a Sony shill. The true definition.

I bash Microsoft ALL the time son. Me and @lostrib were playing the game. You are the game joker.

You are transparent as glass. Look at your stupid shit all through this thread. In that gif of DriveClub. That car represented in the gif breaks in the pouring rain going 100+ mph in less than 20 feet... I quote you saying it was "realistic".

That's a shill my friend. Keep up the fight. In the end you will always lose. All shills lose. Time is your enemy.

Nope I did'nt catch that or read that in the article. What it sounds like to me is that you don't actually pick the weather but instead you simulate cloud cover and the game simulates what type of weather you will get when you are racing.

"The cloud cover and conditions you choose will dictate how much snow and rain will fall."

There are OPTIONS. I get that there are options and as soon as you set them your weather becomes prebaked. I suspect during campaign that you would not have control over the weather, but every DC player will have the same weather experience during campaign races which would make the game predictable. Fail, restart, prepare for incoming weather conditions. Forza not so much because players will be doing events on different days and times accordingly so every Forza race will be different for each player.

Why are cows hating on FH2? Most lems in this thread are just defending H2 while most of the cows are bashing it saying it has a less sophisticated weather system than DC which is BS. Technically, not visually, Forza is the better game it has way more going on than DC does and it does all of that while giving 100+ hours for full completion, the visuals are a not as good as DC but with all the content in the game this is to be expected. No one hates DC, I actually think DC looks pretty damn good, but after playing GT and Forza I like my cars to reward me for good driving and punish me for being too reckless it's what makes the game fun, I save the road hugging for games like Mod Nation Racers or MK.
