Project CARS live replay

Project CARS live replay

That was surely one of the hardest livestreams we've ever had to do, not because of the game itself, but because we were so beat that there was nothing else for us to do than to get beaten by the AI at every race we dared to try. The lack of concentration added to the difficulty we had to speak good English may not have been the best combination for a proper introduction to Project CARS, but you still got to see pretty nice things in this latest build. The weather and lighting effects are indeed impressive no matter what some people can say, and we can't wait to play the console versions in a few weeks to see if they've managed to make them as good as the current PC version. Enjoy the video if you missed the livestream!

Good work guys, Game is looking so good.

The game certainly does look fantastic. So much detail, and the weather system alone is amazing. It could end up being what Gran Turismo was to the PSX for the current gen.

Great videos. Driver animations are generally good but very weird to look at the driver using only one hand and not sure about the reflection on the car. But all things considered for 1 60fps game very impressive

@marker: reflections were not on ultra, did you watch the stream?

Skipped to actual gameplay part. Just to see the gfx, gameplay. Whatever settings it were looked weird. Game looks great in overcast, evening settings as you expect. Looking forward to see the retail version of consoles.

Hopefully it comes out more polished that Gran Turismo did - have a functioning decent online that's easy to get into. Have all cars the same level of detail etc.

Still don't like the rain effects against the screen with this...nor the skid lid effect that just looks like a boarder slapped on the screen. But overall looking very nice.

You guys always sound so enthusiastic on these things...

You can deactivate the rain effect if you're not happy with it.

That doesn't really make for a better rain effect, does it?

You say don't like the rain effects against the screen, I simply tell you you can deactivate it. If that really isn't enough, you can play DriveClub for how great the rain looks and PCARS for how realistic the cars feel. ;)

Arcade racers at 30fps will always look better. Pcars is pretty impressive nevertheless and a nice benchmark for other sims on consoles

Amen for going else where for certain weather effects rather than being brazen and hoping for more than one game to offer that same high standard of rain effect?

I'm not dismissing the game (hence my saying "overall looking very nice"), I'm just voicing my opinion on the rain effect. You're allowed to point out the pro's and cons of things and then weigh them up...and I was giving my take on the weather effect, rather than the game. Turning it on or off isn't going to offer a better effect...just like turning the music on or off in Driveclub isn't going to make the music any better. But it is ok to dream kids!...that it'd be cool if other games had Drive clubs rain as such graphical techniques could become the standard for gaming - you know, it's a good thing.

Personally i think the weather effects look better on PCars apart from the rain hitting the windscreen. Love the splashes the tyres make on the road which is something DC severely lacks.

About the game

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (9 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (10 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (11 Hours ago)
