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 tried the free version of Driveclub and it was okay, but nothing really blew me away where I had to buy it.

Even though it's better on PC, Assetto Corsa is a really good racing game on PS4

I'm kind of stoked for the Nintendo Switch, as is with the upcoming Zelda game.

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.

Same here! I'm kept my ME3 saves just in case.

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.

Have you played it? Was thinking about picking it up once the quarter ends. Kinda looks like Far Cry meets Witcher 3.

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.

Checked out disc jam for free which is basically a new version of windjammers. Could be the next rocket league

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.
