Prez, Quantum Break isnít multiplayer, so it can be transferred elsewhere. Itís also not made by an internal Microsoft studio.

Fair enough - you're probably right. If there is any game that would make me try the Windows Store again it would probably be State of Decay 2 given how much I enjoyed the first one. I guess we'll see.

Already pre-ordered it. I've been waiting on this game for a long while. The main issue I have with Win 10s store is how it installs the games. It will completely lock down the install folder denying you access to it. Thats such busllshit that MS did that. but I know what Im doing so I unlocked that shit.

This game is going to be DOA unless they add some sort of progression.
It's not competitive enough to stand on it's own without it. So if you're going to have dudes sailing all over the place for hours to collect chests and skulls there better be a reason to do it other than cosmetic unlocks.

I think as you say in your second post, this will have a lot of people bail due to lack or progression. That said, I think the game can absolutely survive for a long time and I hope it does. Sometimes silly cosmetic stuff is all it takes to survive.

Not everything has to have progression after all, games have existed without it basically since forever. Now you are right that competition often filled in there, but that still isn't always the case.

No, this game wont. the only way it will is if its completely free. I played the beta and got sick of it really quickly. enough to know that im not spending one single red cent on this pos shit game.

It got really boring fast, and trying to turn in chest with guys just standing there waiting for you and ships parked off shore just bombarding the area got pathetic.

And as Numinar pointed out, there just isn't enough content to keep peoples attention or motivate you.

I backed this based off their delivered products before with kickstarter.. I don't think I'll be disappointed.

So, if you backed it then you should have been playing the beta.

If not then why? The beta has been available to anyone who backed the game.

I'm a gun owner. I hunted as a kid/young adult. I play a metric shit ton of video games.

School shootings are either a gun problem....or a mental health problem. All of you 'thoughts and prayers' fucknuts know this. So get off your fucking stick and either we go with revamping healthcare or we revamp gun control. Moving either one a few steps toward a modern/rational solution would do wonders. You can't have *both* being a shitshow designed to benefit corporations.

You sound like you had about the same up bringing that I had. I did all those things too. this is a mental issue and nothing else.

kids are not disciplined anymore and they are out of control. thank the CPS for this. They went over board on over protecting kids and not allow patents to discipline their kids. thank you social media.

Never quite liked GD, because of the truly god-awful drop rates. Legendaries are supposed to start dropping at 50. I finally quit at 67, when the game had dropped exactly 1 legendary (by the final boss, which is ALWAYS a legendary) and it was one I couldn't use at all. Why devs continue to insist on absolutely fucking retardedly low drop rates, I'll never understand.

Grim Dawn makes Borderlands 2 look downright generous in comparison.

I did play it again with a mod that

A) Massively upped the drop rates
B) Gave you like 3 or 5 skill points per level

but to make up for it, it also continuously increased the monster spawns as you leveled up. By the time I reached level ~ 60 with that, the entire screen would be filled with critters. It was actually a lot of fun, until the engine finally croaked on the thousands of spawns it was asked to create.

In any case, I got ashes of malmouth and thought it was pretty mediocre, so I'm definitely giving this a pass.

I had pretty much the same problem, for a SP game this game is utterly shit when it comes to itemization and loot. I actually KS'd the game originally and dropped it cold and hard after reaching level 50 and never finding a single usable legendary till then, not ONE.

NOT ONE

That would be just your dumb luck then, I've got a few chars over level 65 and I have them fully outfitted with legendary items.

Dont believe me, then join me in a steam game, Ill prove it and even drop you a few items to keep if you like.



We can always meet up in D3 Torment 12

I play D3 every so often, im around paragon 1200 something. My brother who is a fanatic for this game and in the best guild you can be in is over 3000 paragon.

You can add me in Battlenet if you like, I play a demon hunter as my main and a few other support toons too.

look up dark#1182

No, I dont lack critical thought. I just know shit when i see it.


I just ignore anything that jackoff has to say, in fact hes on my ignore list. so I have no idea what he even responded and I really dont care what he has to say.

In a roundabout way he (correctly) pointed out how you lack critical thought.

There was a DLC called Comrades that allowed you to generate a character, and take on quests with up to 3 other people. The main game is not an MMO, it's a classic Final Fantasy game. XI and XIV are the MMOs.

If you're into MMOs, I can fully recommend FFXIV - it's excellent.

Regarding the current game (FFXV) I'll probably pick it up when it comes out, Looks good.

Yea, no thanks, subscription based game. not to thrilled about playing to play.

You'll get an occasional guest character but otherwise those four only. They were going for a "bro road trip" vibe on this one so the playable cast is smaller than past games.

OK, good to know. also, can this campaign be played Cooperatively with fiends taking over the other characters?

And btw, the combat reminds me a lot of Kingdoms of Amalur.

Be sure to grab the nvidia drivers... seemed to make a huge difference for me (unlike the Benchmark, without drivers on my 1070 I would get 12 fps less than I do now, strange. Still not getting to 60 at 1440p on MAX though

That's like saying "I have a Ferrari Cup Holder, yet my Big Wheel only does 10mph".
Without the rest of the specs of your system........

Also, my 1080 Ti runs like a champ with everything at full getting 60 fps easily.

Avoid this one like the Plague.. it's horrible.

It didn't exactly look amazing, but any details on that?

First off, they are forcing you to be online always even for the SP campaign.

Secondly, the controls are shit, you cant rebind all of the keys in the game. Thats a big time bullshit screw you to many of us that are left handed.

Thirdly, you cant turn off the stupid ass music, they blurt it as loud as possible when combat starts. #FuckKonami

Forth, The menu system is shit, you have a mouse, but cant use the mouse in the menus. Again #fuckkonami

Fifth, Its about as boring and dull as it can get with this hand held shit with always needing water and food. My god, cant anyone make a survival game with out all this micromanaging bullshit attached to it?

So, yea that about sums up this lame ass game.

Definitely avoid it. its total shit!
