I played GTA Online for awhile but gave up because I couldn't make money when my investments were hit by other players during sell runs. Does anybody here think RDR Online is better or is it pretty much the same game design?

RDR Online is just as bad as Rockstar has been greedy fucks hiding everything behind the Season Pass (which almost doubled in cost for the 2nd season), and Gold (which is a pita to get). But if ya have a solid posse it's really not bad, except on the PC version which is still plagued by bugs, and script kiddies modding the game.

Warzone is free to play. It's basically zero cost to try and cheat. At least on steam you could mess up your access to your library in theory.

It's messed up. it's part of why I prefer consoles when I want to relax and play with friends online most nights. You still get the odd cheater or M/KB emulator try hard but you don't get entire teams of nightmares as the cost of entry is higher.

It's worse for my favorite PC shooter at the moment, Hell Let Loose, as there are not that many servers to bounce to when it goes bad and you get a cheaty infection. The mechanics are so brutal that it's hard to brush off the odd john wick asshole juicin' on the cheats.

Small problem with Warzone... you can't turn off cross platform to play (trust me I've tried).

It was a joke?

Ignore him, just another just poster making a garbage complaint because they don't bother to even read the article.

Go look at the video, notice all the lighting artifacts (like lighting coming in under the walls). He took some maps from Half Life 2 (added in some assets) and recorded it.
The name is misleading. Show me the CAMPAIGN in VR and then you have a winner. A proof on cnncept yes, but again like to see the campaign.

The issue is that it's a Free to Play game. Getting Banned just means that go from M@ssiveC0ck420 to M@ssiveC0ck421. Unless they IP/hardware ban it's worthless.

Meh, what about the multiplayer? COD is a mindless shooter in general but this is one of the better ones.

The classic maps are being put in the current game, but for 20 bucks it's a solid SP game.

Korrd wrote on Mar 31, 2020, 01:43:
I started playing for the first time when the immersion patch went live. From what I understand about their loot-shooter, gear score mechanics, immersion is much closer to what I'd expect from a Ghost Recon game, but I still find it really lacking.

The story thus far is interesting, but the world just feels empty. Bad guys are in no short supply, sure, but gone are almost all the civilians from Wildlands; no peaceful towns, people walking along the roadside, and the only vehicles you see on the road are hostile, who now immediately identify you as an enemy even when you're driving calmly in one of their own cars. All subtlety and depth seems to have been stripped.

Game mechanics are oddly clunky. Hopping on a ladder causes your character to look to the side momentarily before you're given control and allowed to climb. Sliding down a ladder requires you to hold control for a duration before you start to slide, instead of just sliding if you're holding control. You can't shimmy back from a ledge while lying prone because your character turns all the way around instead. Gunplay at least remains pretty satisfying compared to Wildlands, but I think that's mostly because they didn't really change anything.

About the only real improvement that comes to mind is in character animation--facial features and mannerisms--but even there the cracks have begun to show with poor lip-syncing and awkward pauses and bad dialog. And sweet holy hell, the repetition in non-story NPC dialog is so annoying. If you stand near NPCs for 30 seconds (changing gear or settings) you'll hear the same 2-3 voice lines repeated several times. They just don't shut up, even when they're alone.

All in all, it's an inferior product to Wildlands. Where I wish they'd retooled the game for a more hardcore route, they seem to have gone the opposite direction. Immersion is a step in the right direction, but I think the game itself is fundamentally flawed and will never live up as a sequel.

you pretty much nailed it.

Division 1 and 2 are pretty good, but Warlords of New York is just awesome. They need to let Massive Entertainment take a stab at the Ghost Recon franchise.

I went back for the free weekend.. and played for 20 mins and uninstalled. It still feels like a lifeless version of Wildlands with cut and pasted Unity type assets with the rare exception. I will say the "pro" mode or whatever it was called was interesting, but the game as a whole is dead.

EGS describes it as an "asymmetric multiplayer shooter" with a release date of April 24th.

Also, it is "Unavailable" in my region...and that region is the US.

Think this one is a flub.

Look at the time it's open. March 27th at 17:00 PST. so 5pm PST, 8pm EST

Seems the norm anymore, but kewl they are taking the time to hopefully make it good.

I would be happy if they just increased the limits on home building and inventory space.

if anyone plays this please let me know. Would like to get back into it but rather not play solo.

So, is this game worth the download?

Ghost Recon Wildlands is a better choice. It's the open-world and gameplay of Assassin's Creed meets Tom Clancy's sensibilities. The game unfolds similar to Assassin's Creed Origins and Odyssey. The setting is a region-by-region recreation of Bolivia under the grip of a drug cartel called Santa Blanca. The Cartel consists of four separate yet equally large branches: security, influence, production, and smuggling. Regions fall under the control of branch underbosses, with each in charge of underling buchones. These underlines operate throughout Bolivia. As you progress through the organization's pyramid and gather clues, eventually, your team comes mano-a-mano with the Cartel's boss, El Sueño. The game features a cash shop, but if memory serves, it's cosmetic stuff (e.g., clothing, styles, equipment skins paints, things like that). Gameplay seamlessly switches between single-player and multi-player, with both sharing the same story-driven campaign. If you have You and three other friends, you all can go on an adventure, as Bilbo Baggins exclaimed.

yup stick to Wildlands. There was a reason the CEO called out this game as a mess to investors, and still needs more work then it will ever get to fix it.
