The PS4's Driveclub Has Been A Mess Since It Launched

I spent a week playing a pre-release copy of the PlayStation 4 racing game Driveclub, and in that time I found it to offer striking visuals and a unique online multiplayer social experience. Then it launched. And everything went to hell. » 10/16/14 12:24pm 10/16/14 12:24pm
