Its actually a quite good game, or rather, was.
The combat was very good at the beginning, but then they messed it up. Also hardly any players left. At most in the mid hundreds.

Hold on everybody. There's something very wrong here that should give you pause:

THERE'S NO EARLY ACCESS.

How are we supposed to enjoy pining away for missing features? How are we supposed to bond over complaining about the game never finishing and the devs just taking the money and moving on? They're robbing us of these opportunities!

So you've been warned: stay away from this one.

Play a game like Dead By Daylight and you will learn that not being EA, doesnt mean the game is finished or polished in any way.

It's much more quick playing and round based than an open world game like you mentioned.

How quick is a round?
3 minutes to ~30 minutes. Depending on how quick you die.

What happens when you die, are you a spectator? This seems like it would suck for anyone who dies early and faces a 30 minute respawn timer. Are you expected to quit and join another server?

It's a shame it's in Early Access. By the time it is released, the player base will be experienced and quite possibly past its peak.

You can always end the game and get into another. Even if youre not dead.
You can spectate in a team game, but are not forced to.

Thats the curse of EA. Also, once its done, there will be so many pro players, that for a new player it will be hell.
So you might aswell play it now.

Very happy to see PUBG #1. It is usually 4 or 5 on the daily list of players. It is a really intense game. Such a step above and beyond the other similar games out there. Really looking forward to the optimization patch next week.

One of the coolest things coming to the game is the ability to replay in 2D as well as 3D the previous matches you have played. I hope they give the ability to watch others as well. Be fun to watch the matches of the top 10 people in the game to see their strategy, etc. Watching Twitch players that are in the top10 they aren't terrible awesome at the game compared to what I do, they just hit their first 1-3 shots and down people sooner and from further away. I don't have any kills longer than 300 meters, but I have a number of wins in solo.

The game gives me the excitement that playing in league and competitive BF2 did back in the day.

It badly needs optimization.
Cheaters are everywhere (funnily many more on European servers than on NA servers), massive lag, the stuttering and flashing of the whole screen is extremely irritating, and it still feels very spongy.
Turn everything to low or very low, terrain medium. I get 70+ fps. It lags out and gets choppy for a few moments, not bad unless it happens at the end game with only 10 people left.
I have enough FPS, its just the server lag, this weird stuttering and screen flashing that drives me nuts. mousewheel selection is also very very slow. Not to mention the still crappy sound, where you cant really tell if youre shot at or someone else. They said they fixed it, but it isnt.

Why is no one doing a Tie Fighter sequel/remake?
If they would, it would most likely be dumbed down completely. Even managing shields would be considered too hard for the average player.

Sounds legit.

MS: What's the most restrictive policy out there? Steam? Let's emulate them.

So being the first console to offer refunds gets them no credit?

Jesus.

I have no love for xbox, never owned one, probably never will. But give me a break. Name me one other console that offers refunds of any kind.
They were forced into it, since it's sales are doing so poorly against the PS4. I've never owned a console, so I'm not playing favorites.

I just checked, holy crap the Xbox really does bad. Worldwide weekly sales are only about 1/3 of the PS4 sales.

you cranky old people honestly just like bitching, admit it.

Not really. Most have realistic wishes.
But I think we can say the same about you, just replace the bitching with trolling.

so "realistic wishes" mainly means that you "wish" that the game that exists is something completely different, specifically catered towards your personal tastes. And I'm the one that's trolling?

I'm sorry that you didn't get what YOU wanted. But being mad at an arena-style shooter for being an arena-style shooter is dumb.

You might as well get mad at Starcraft for not having more trading card game elements. That's not what the game is.

Learn to critique things on their own merits, and not just impose your selfish views on what YOU want. Although I know that's probably impossible for some people on here to even consider.

When the world revolves around what only you want, and shits on media that isn't specifically catered to you, congrats, you're the troll.

Arena style shooter? No. Its a dumbed down shooter, made for console controllers. PC players want something that fits their gaming machine. Its really that easy. All these RPG elements and cards and whatnot, simplified controls, nobody really wants that, not even most console players. See how successful that game is with exactly that. Nobody is playing it anymore. Games like that normally were played for years, if not decades.
I am sorry that I criticize commercial games whichs goals are only to sell as many units as possible due to a huge PR campaign (thats actually the biggest part of the game), and doesnt care about gameplay.
We are voicing our opinion and you are trying to silence people by attacking them with bullshit and personal attacks. That is trolling par excellence. And of course you wont admit it. When does a troll ever do that? lol...

I don't know about saying to euthanize yourself first would be the joke, I mean, after-all, everything you've posted has already proven you to be the most apt at being an actual joke that no one really needs to make one about you.

It's 2017, are we still using "lamer"?

Muscular Beaver wrote on Apr 12, 2017, 16:58:
The negativity is very often confirmed, especially from us old school gamers, we would love to see games become more complex instead of getting dumbed down.

As much as I enjoy a deeply intricate game with deeply intricate systems, we are a slowly dying breed of a time past. I don't fault any company for maximizing their income by following market trends...nor do I fault consumers for purchasing things they want as long as it is within their means to do so legally.

In other words, progress is going to happen even if you don't agree with it or even see it as 'progress'.

There are enough people who want something like that, and believe it or not, the average console gamer isnt too stupid to play complexer games. Yet we dont want games where you have to deal with every little thing. Just things that challenge us more.

Progress is subjective. But there are occasions when it isnt. Following your logic we could be playing Pacman 236251, because its so popular.
Progress for most big developers is better graphics. No innovation. New genres actually are made by tiny devs, but more likely by players who mod an existing game. Oh wait, but these awesome progressive console ports cant even be modded...

See, this is what drives me nuts about gamers today...you guys have no clue what's in the game at this point, only that it has a story underpinning and covers all three trilogies...and has 'heroes', like the first. The game could literally have everything you're all complaining about wanting but you don't know. Yet we'll complain anyway. I'm guilty of it too but I think that for this industry to return to what it was back in it's heyday, we need some optimism and enthusiasm. I'm not saying to go out and pre-order but maybe be a little excited about things. I constantly (constantly) hear people wanting another Tie Fighter, including myself, and this could be a big step to that. It looks like it's going to have more focus on space combat.

I have the smallest bit of hope that EA heard all the complaints about the first and is going to change it. And for once, I'm going to go in excited to see what they'll give us this time instead of grumbling about it. Will I be disappointed? Probably. But fuck, I'm tired of being down and negative about this shit all the time. The mood is always 80% 'It's gonna fail - hard!' and 20% 'Well it might rock'. We need to change that.

It really hurts to see such awesome trailers and then instantly realize that the real game will just be another gameplay-failure like the last one.
What would I give for a real successor of the old ones, improved in gameplay (imagine Jedi Knight-like controls for characters with a light saber in a game like this), or even a remake of X-Wing...

Like the moba genre pre dota 2, it's becoming increasing ridiculous that no major studio has made a battleground game(the division dlc doesn't count). EA already has the tech, increase the map size and player count in battlefield(maybe tone down the physics to compensate) and they would be good to go.

What do you mean, like a 100+ player DM(single elimination or otherwise) style game in a Battlefield engine variant?

I know PUsB (tm) is popular at the moment, but is this really a new genre? There's that and H1Z1:KotK right? Technically both by the same guy?

I've watched some videos of PU BATTLEGROUNDS, and the formula seems more than a bit rough around the edges... spawn, loot guns, walk around a LOT, brief period of fighting, death/victory, repeat ad nauseam. My opinion, of course; clearly it's crazily popular.
PUBG is a lot of fun. Mainly because every type of player can have their way. Rambos can go bonkers in a crowded place and hope for the best, tactical people can chose their approach properly and shy ones can just stay back and let the others do the work for them. Theres also the option to go stealth. Mainly in cities, though. Not to mention the team aspect, which is a lot of fun.

The game just has a lot of bugs and technical issues. Also hackers and exploiters are becoming a real problem.

Its a bit different. Mostly the controls. But I completed it and its worth it. Just another part in this awesome series, even if its from a different dev.

Good news! They've already confirmed they have another Witcher game planned.

They have? News to me. Source, please?

I can't remember where I read it, so I've been doing a bit of digging. This is about as close as I can find (with a bunch of other similar articles), which means it looks like everyone was jumping the gun a bit, including myself.

I apologize for getting everyone's hopes up.
In any case, I highly doubt they wouldnt do another Witcher game.

In the words of The Dude, "What the fuck are you talking about, man?" What wind effects?
Even when calm, vegetation moving around as if a storm is inbound, yet the sound effect is that of a normal breeze.

EDIT: Oh, I just saw, someone finally made a mod that fixes it (would have loved to get sound that fits the movement instead, but this is nice too):
