Hype your favorite upcoming games here!

the end of January will be a great time for me. Not really playing anything at the moment, but at the end of January, I'll be picking up Yakuza 0, the disc-based version of Hitman, and I just saw news of Double Dragon IV on the 30th anniversary of the original game!

I'm looking forward to playing Gran Turismo Sport. Hopefully it comes out in 2017 and doesn't get delayed any further.

I actually played that at the PlayStation experience event here a few weeks back. I also tried the VR version which was cool.

I heard its going to be more like "prologue" than traditional GT games and focused more on online and esports. I might just skip this version

I really wish there was a good driving game for PS4 - almost makes me wish I had gotten an XB1 instead. Almost. I love Gran Turismo, but as someone too antisocial even for online gaming, the lack of a Simulation/Career mode might be a deal-breaker.

Driveclub is amazing, too bad they pulled the free plus version.... but its only $7.50

Other than that there's Project Cars which has a realistic career mode, at least progression/calendar-wise. $30 base or $40 with all the DLC

And Dirt Rally is also really good as a simulation driving game. Career is the basic race/get money/buy car/race/get money grind, but the gameplay is top notch. Only one of these three on sale right now - https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/ ... LLYLABELNA for $24

I'm only really looking forward to that Horizons game for PS4 right now. Everything else is waiting for early access games to polish up like Wreckfest. Rocket League/2K and my backlog still have plenty of hours for me anyway.

Same here. I also picked up Mad Max since it was on sale for $5 on Bundle Stars, and you gave it a rave review a while back.

JaoSming, I've been considering the $20 version of Driveclub that I believe has everything but the bikes. Would you recommend that or Dirt Rally?

[Q], The Crew is okay. The game's map is very cool but the driving physics are subpar, as is the main campaign. Free roaming, leveling up your car and racing other people is fun though.

I recommend it, yeah. And you're right, the $7 one is just a slice of the game, $20 for the actual game, and $13 for a season pass.

I would say go for the $20 and once you beat the game go for the DLCs. If you want to attempt a gameshare session tonight to try it on my PS4, I'll be home in like 8 hours or so.


Looks like you can also get it for a whole buck off from GMG https://www.greenmangaming.com/games/driveclub/

I think the modular controller is a gimmick. But if it's a way to not buy a secondary controller, I think I'm fine with it. Although seeing only nine launch titles, I might wait for a few months before I make a purchase.

SRP for the Switch is $299 and is coming out on March 3. Skyrim was announced as a Switch title, and an NBA 2K game, along with a new Mario game, Splatoon 2, a family game, and Shin Megami Tensei IV.

I kinda lost my mind on that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 trailer and got goosebumps with the new Breath of the Wild trailer.

EDIT: Oh my gord!

Seems like there would be actual, voiced dialogue in-game. And I do hope they go with an orchestral soundtrack.

I am quite amazed how the game is looking right now. Is this game alone gonna be worth buying ps4 for? Would be awesome if this game had open world plus interactive environment.






Unfortunately, outside of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Horizon Zero Dawn, there aren't too many games that I am excited about. I will play by ear and read reviews I guess when they hit the shelf.

Got it. It's absolutely beautiful but I barely have an hour or so into it. Seems like it is going to be a lot of fun though.

TBH, been watching too many Zelda streams....that game looks absolutely perfect...but I'm going to try and avoid getting it (Wii U) until I finish Horizon.

Disc Jam is an absolute blast to play. I fucking suck at it though. I need to play through the tutorial again because I literally went 0-8 when I tried it out.

Don't think it'll be the next Rocket League, which is clearly what they're going for with the UI and art style. They've had some major issues with the network (it's been fine for me, though it takes a while to connect), and I'm not sure the game has as much depth. Still, it's the first free PS+ title I've been remotely intrigued by in months.

Sorry but, I don't go by Gamespot or IGN. I have played MANY great games that they have rated under a 7.

I think my GTX 980 would have been more than decent for it, but I bought a GTX 1080 last week, so I play in 1080p at ultra settings and it's mostly extremely smooth.
I'm still in the early phase, and obviously all the bad reviews and the early concerns have probably influenced me to some degree, so I'd certainly admit that it's not quite the excitement that I had about ME2 or ME3. There certainly are some evident development issues and the pacing is not ideal, but I'm kind of digging the premise of the story so far, more than I expected to at least, and being a huge geek about that series I'm sure I'll enjoy it more than most.

I think the story in Andromeda has little to do with any ending from 3. So you should be good either way. I was also planning on getting this day 1 but the reviews are a bit discouraging. Also, it's interesting to see news that the team behind Andromeda are looking to fix facial animation. Isn't that too much of a work? :lol:

You don't, no, brand new story indeed.
Playing a bit more right now, and I have to agree with the critics regarding inventory management, research and all that stuff, they really made things far more confusing than they needed to be, and navigation in the menus is annoying as a result of that. Also, right now my game just crashed to desktop, no error message or anything. :|

Alright, so after playing some more and getting over some of the learning curves (which is weird when you've spent countless on the first 3 games), it definitely gets better. Not getting any more crash certainly doesn't hurt either...

So, apparently this game is still gonna come out at some point :lol:


Kind of cool news that Porsche will officially be in a GT game for the first time ever.

https://www.gtplanet.net/porsche-offici ... smo-sport/
After years of wanting and waiting for Porsche to make its way over to the Gran Turismo franchise, it has been confirmed that, yes, the German manufacturer will feature in this year’s Gran Turismo Sport.

With GT Sport’s motorsport focus, we’ll be crossing our fingers that some of the beautiful race cars the manufacturer has brought to life will also make their way to the game. For now, the tease of 500 hp 911 GT3 RS will have to do.

With the second phase of the beta just about to begin, who knows… perhaps some Porsche models may find their way into players hands sooner than they expect. Stay with GTPlanet for the latest in GT Sport and Porsche updates.

Lol it ain't a GT game unless there's a year or two delay
i played it at PS Experience and it was okay but knowing that there won't be the traditional GT simulation mode, I might just pass on this or wait until 2019 when it gets discounted

I played the Closed Beta a few times. It's good, but honestly my favorite part of GT is the simulation mode so I'll probably give it a pass as well, and hope for Gran Turismo 7 down the line...

The problem is that they put so much work into building a huge collection of cars in its heyday which made gt2 and gt4 the best in the series. But there wasn't much shelf life on them and they tried to bring them into the HD era and so they were a bit out of place as "non-premium" cars. They've obviously put in work on newer premium cars, but man it sucks not to be able to play with an 04 sti or 97 supra or rx7 in HD.

Plus online play and esports kind of forced them to go away from what made them great

What I don't understand is why they always have to shoot for the moon with their new games.

I feel like a lot of people would have just been happy with a PS4 version of GT6. Upgrade all cars to premium, add some new tracks and just make sure the online works smoothly.

Personally, that would have been enough to keep me happy for a couple of years whilst they worked on GT7.

Must be the Japanese way: the pursuit of perfection. Better than other companies releasing half of a game and making you wait or pay for the rest of it :lol:

True, though Gran Turismo 5 was delayed for years and wasn't finished when it came out.

It's a dangerous game to play because with no deadline, they could just work on it forever and it'd never be "finished". They'd just find more stuff to work on
