I really enjoyed Pinball Hall of Fame on PS2. I tried this collection on PS3 and found it to be just a tad laggy? My timing was slightly off after having played a much tighter experience on PS2 assuming because of the wired controller. Seems alot better on PS4 though. Will definitely look into this when it goes on sale.
Been rocking a variation of this one since the start for the most part. Why change now? I think it's nice to have people recognize the avatar here and there. Like a "gone but not forgotten" thing when you take a break and come back.
@metalgearsunny: I haven't noticed one. It's kind of great actually though. Some of the cornering overdrives show you a line to beat once in awhile. I'm constantly looking at the map and memorizing courses alot faster this way. It's been years since I've driven without a line of some sort.
I've been enjoying this game quite alot actually. I felt the PS+ version was enough of a chunk to really get a feel for what they're going for, and like you said, it's primarily focused on racing and that's pretty refreshing coming from the GT series. Don't get me wrong, I love tuning cars and customizing the crap out of them, but, Driveclub just feels right for the amount of "thought" commitment I'm willing to put into a racing game right now and the upgrade is well worth $25.
I hope you decide to upgrade. I played about 12 hours non-stop today and can't wait to get back in there tomorrow.
I was moderately disappointed when I had watched the initial trailer for it, but after seeing the press conference, I'm pretty excited. Graphical / Animation roughness aside, I can't wait to get lost walking around and am pretty happy there's seemingly no online component to it. Hoping there's more random events happening in the wasteland though.
