LOL, no, but there is something good coming and a reason why I have been going through my mods these past several weeks.

Thanks RedEye, already tried that. the key bindings are non existent in the config file. Not sure where they are keeping them. also looked the the steam folder, nothing there but one file that has nothing to do with the bindings.

Been using AutoHotKey until they hopefully fix this.

Darks, you're the *second* person I've run across with overall positive commentary. All other people/streamers/letsplay/reviews were uniformly 'meh'. All said the same thing (which held up while watching the gameplay footage), that it is buggy and the pacing/responsiveness doesn't lend to an exciting playthrough.

The jury is still out for me. It still *looks* fun....and I know I've loved a number of the same games as Darks. Still have concerns for 10+ hours of enjoyment. Who am I kidding? I'll probably break down and buy it this weekend. LOL

I'm not hard to please with my games. and as I said, when it comes to DnD, I'm always on board. I can tolerate a lot of things in a game being buggy, but as long as its not game breaking. Like I said, we played the first mission, I have not had a chance to play anymore since I'm at work. Ill get more time in tonight. but our experience so far was good. No issues found!

As for the pacing, well that ones the party and the pace you decide to go at, we ran into all kinds of encounters, yes there are some places that are not enemy filled, but why would you fill the entire map with non stop encounters? There are hidden areas that are worth looking for and exploring, that's a big part of what DnD is all about too. We ran into several types of traps that you had to try and navigate through to get to a chest, to me that was also fun.

Anyway, I'm of the thought that a lot of gamers these days have gotten to spoiled, and don't appreciate games like they did when they started playing games.

Not me, I always in the mood for a good Dungeon romp.

To Darks,

It's been repeated by many now.

It seems the game can be fun, but it needs patches and we'll see what kind of support it gets, the feeling to me is it was rushed out the door, probably for financial reasons, but there is something there worth honing.

A lot of gamers will still try it with gamepass, it won't take long before a proper consensus is made.

That's very true, I can get on board with someone who has at least sat down and gave the game a good try. But not someone who played the game for 0.3 hours and then goes and review bombs the game. I have little respect for anyone like that.

I know from my personal experience, that I have had a fun with the game Coop. Soloing is where some are not caring for the ride, but again, the devs were very clear that this game was designed for Coop.

My only biggest real grip with the game is the lack of key bindings. you can not rebind the movement keys. That is a moral sin in any pc game to not allow those keys to be rebind. I'm left handed, so I use the Arrow keys, yeah I'm weird like that. But some people don't use WASD, they use the EDSF keys. my other friend uses those. So this they have got to fix.

No idea where they are storing the config for this either, Its not in the config they have on the AppData folder.

Okay, me being a big DnD nerd that I am, I played this game through the first mission with a friend, we had a lot of fun. We didn't run into any bugs or craziness at all. The game was pretty fluid for both of us.

It took us about 50 mins to get through that mission, and we explored every place we could find. Walked out with some purples gear, some blues and greens. We played only on the first difficulty to get a feel for the game. To us, the game was as advertised, I saw nothing that I hadn't seen in any of the dev streams.

What really bothers me is that some streamer jump on, start bashing the game and people just fall in line without giving the game a go for themselves. If I had been the first person to do a stream and had nothing but praise to say about this game, most everyone would jump on the bandwagon and say it looked great.

The problem with todays crowd, is they don't know how to critically think for themselves, they would rather watch someone play the game and them tell them what to think about the games they are playing. Seems to be hardly anyone knows how to think for themselves any more.

I watched some of those reviewers and one guy in particular was way off base on parts his review. He had no idea about the games difficulty CR ratings and was complaining that the game was to difficult playing Coop, while he played Solo he was one shotting everything I was like really dude? learn to use the CR levels.

Anyway!!!

Not checking the headlines or reading the reviews anymore. Of any game. I envy the person who isn't even a little bit influenced by the complaining click-bait. I find comfort in the fact that there is no such person on this earth.

So as the self-proclaimed #1 Drizzt fan, I'll judge this game for myself first. A friend gifted it anyway.

Bit of context: One of the last reviews I ever checked was WaB on Outriders. The idiot didn't even bother to do an actual review and stayed with a review of the demo. Called it a looter shooter. Was incorrect in so many shit. In a later review he managed to even piss on Mass Effect while he somehow never played the originals. In the meantime, all his reviews are filled with comments like "Thanks Mack, removed it from my wishlist" or "Mack saves me money once again". There's a reason he isn't getting free copies and is unique in having a record of actually pissing devs off. I'm ashamed I loved his click-bait channel for so long.

Since a while now, my motto is that I rather waste money every now and then instead of the chance of missing out on a game I would greatly enjoy. Outriders was one of those games I almost missed.

I was on the beta for this game long ago. Don't understand why people there don't know that removing the authentication server would break things like this. This is why they need to patch out games after so many years to stop worrying so much about piracy that ripped this game years ago.

UBI is so anal about going back and removing old DRM that doesn't need to be there after a year or two.

Look at the older Assassins' Creed games, most of them have Denuvo, and those games were cracked years ago. but they still have the lame ass DRM still in them. SMH!!

I've farted around with the pre-release stuff a bit and to be honest this feels way too much like a Baldur's Gate mod for D:OSII. I don't mind the change of pace but it has a lot of Larian jank to it and not in a good way. I don't know, I really wanted to love it but was pretty lukewarm overall, it just feels off. I will give the final game a chance when it's on sale.

Whatever dude, but in no way did this feel like a mod. not even close!

Just an FYI, the game came out on Epic in Dec, 2019. Its been out for 1.5 years on that platform.

It looks like they've made some decent improvements with the expansion, which of course brings the price up to the same as release's $50. Co-op is still controlled by the host but at least you can let your friends gear out their mechs themselves. I don't see anything definitive if the game will have Steam workshop support though.

Oh, and I've read that the offline installers on the GoG version haven't been released yet.

I haven't had a chance to try Coop yet, so is this a fact now that anyone who joins you no has full control on loadouts of their mech?

If that so, then this is a good start at least.

And yes it does have Steam workshop. Its there, but currently empty. Since the game is still new it may take a few days for the mods to start popping in.

Is this true?
Game isn't bad but it's a major grindfest between story missions. They have added a new patch so not sure what's changed but pissed they changed their privacy stuff to play online. And at least before todays patch yes it would just spawn in tanks and aicraft randomly.

There's a mod over at NexusMods to remove that tanks/helicopters spamming nonsense if I remember correctly.


you wont need to go there anymore, these will all be available in the Steam Workshop that added to the game now. Just waiting on all those mods to be updated and compatible for this newer version.

Well, MechWarrior has a special place in my heart. I made the MechWarrior 4 Mercenaries Coop mod many years ago. And I had read where the game wasn't on par, but this addon is supposed to fix a lot of those issues. Guess we will find out if that's true soon enough.

No thanks. RIP to UBI.

What makes you think that? I'm in the beta and I can tell you what you just said it completely wrong. its Division without a doubt.

The idiot who leaked this is going to be fucked. They are going to ban his account for life and he will be very lucky if they don't sue his worthless ass. That watermark on the top of your screen is your identifier. yea, hes done for.

I honestly don't understand why idiots do this stupid shit. This is a breach of the Strick NDA they had us agree to. and he just blatantly disregarded it like its meaningless. To me anyone person what would do that would sell out their own county for 5 mins of fame and are completely untrustworthy.

All this will end up doing in the future is make it very difficult for anyone to get into a closed beta, they will go after a very select crowd, most likely streamers who they know wont betray their trust in fear of losing their channels per a ban. One idiot screwing it up for everyone! SMH!!!
