Boy, that sounds SO MUCH FUN. :\

Not on my server, I turn crap like that off. Mine is strictly PVE.

I just got the game a few days ago and am having a blast, playing mostly single player with a lot of tweaks in server settings.

I'm definitely interested in the server you've set up for blues news folks Darks, and will be PM'ing you.

Sure, whenever your ready.

From my Steam review....

Great game. Runs incredibly well -unlike that fugly pig ARK. The world is amazing. It does have it's limitations however. It's devoid of anything to really do besides build. There are plenty of placeholders for where there should be content - dungeons specifically. The game desperately needs mounts and pets. Having the map teleporter end game - without mounts - is just stupid. It's a vast map and takes a long time to travel it on foot. They need a lot more variation in humanoid NPCs, and a lot more interactivity. Even building could use a lot more items to create. For example in the shelf category that's exactly it, one wooden shelf. That's all these is. So you're pretty limited in the decoration department.

In short it seems they spent most of the time world building and not enough putting items and NPCs and things to do. Or perhaps that was all part of the plan so as to release these other things as paid DLC. I won't mind that if the price is reasonable. The first DLC however is defintely overpriced - it's current $13CDN whereas I woulnt' pay more than $5CDN for it.

In spite of all these shortcomings it's still a fun and interesting game. The world building is really top notch and it's a pleasure to explore. It really feels spot on to the Conan lore. So for the 25'ish bucks it is on sale atm it's worth it if you like survival games. If they can deliver on these things this game will have incredible longevity.

--

Outside of that I've been making a list to post on the Funcom forums of things this game needs and general fixes. Quite enjoying it overall. Certainly got my money's worth so far.



Yep, I agree with your review. It to bad they dont do more to expand the world and have a lot more to do. Fun game, but definitely needs more work.

BTW, if you guys joined my server I've taken a lot of the grind in crafting out and have it sped up. Cutter can tell you that too since hes been playing on my server too.

- Worse map than before
- Still overly arcadey physics
- Even worse rubber banding.

Welp, there goes my interest.

GTA Online has this stuff figured out, so why doesn’t an online-focused driving game that costs $60? Ubisoft says a December update will add PvP, but it’s bewildering that they didn’t launch the game with such basic multiplayer functionality.

DECEMBER! It's fucking JUNE, Ubisoft! "Hey, don't worry, we'll sort of make this into an actual game in six months or so."

Fuck these assholes.


I heard that the game is pretty boring, its really all about buying new cars and even that doesn't keep the interest levels up.

Before you get excited, other than the logo there is literally nothing of SQ42 in here.

Few thoughts:

- The whole thing just seems like a giant programmer circle jerk about what new cool tech they can come up with. "Look at the way the hand holds the can! That's so amazing!"

Yes. Yes, it is. It's also completely fucking pointless to be spending as much time on that as you guys seem to be doing. The animations weren't great before, so hey, let's just redo them! They have an old vs new comparison video, and I'm really hard pressed to see any difference, but they're acting like they went from NES level Mario to Last of Us 2 in animation. This is literally the world's biggest "Keep guys employed for doing very little" community funding gig.

- God that engine is an unoptimized piece of shit. They have an FPS counter going when the marine is walking through literally an empty room with no textures etc, and it's barely breaking 40fps. :\

Hey at least that opening space shot looked gorgeous.

The more I see of this POS game, the more pissed off I get.

Indeed. I will admit to purchasing some cosmetic items for PUBG. But I only spent a few dollars which I actually earned by SELLING cosmetic items for PUBG.

Im not telling anyone they shouldn't spend any money, but I have seen some that are very reckless with how they do it. to the point of it effecting their livelihood.

This is actually disgusting that people throw away their money so easily on virtual items. This was very obvious at E3 on how much Swag and all the free food they were giving away.

Especially the Freshly made Chocolate Chip cookies they were baking on site thought out the entire E3 experience.

People complain about shitty MOB AI, then complain about PVP against real players, what exactly are people looking for?


I can answer that, I know for a fact that myself and many other want to have control over the servers and play the game without any PVP in the game at all. We want Coop only.

We dont want to deal with grifers and asshats who want nothing more then to build the Nuke and blow everything up. That is not the game play we want nor do we want to deal with that.

at first I was like "OMG A NEW PARTY RPG?" then I realized its for the MMO and I was disappointed.


I feel your pain, I was all into this when it first came out, then Cryptic decided to super greedy with the game and put in a paywall that killed the game for me and many others.

Needless to say, I haven't touched this game since. I really liked the game too. But their crafting upgrades and paywall utterly chocked the life out of this game.

This trailer contains 0% new anything. They literally took Todd's voice from the E3 prez.

I'm super-hyped for this game though. I love coop survival games and if this is anything like Fallout 4, which it is, it's going to be one of the best.

I'd also like more single player Fallout, but they already gave us Fallout 4. I don't want the main Beth team working on the next SP RPG to spend time on a side project like 76. 76 is a gift made by another team while the main team works on Starfield.

Yea, I'm hyped for this too because of Coop.. But im really leery about the PVP aspect. I'm leaning on waiting until we are able to host out own private servers. I hope that wont take to long to happen after release.

In before anti-DRM told you so squad and hellfire. I think this sucks too, but I'm not abundant enough in excess energy to rant about it on the Blue's News forum.

This is something that drives me crazy, why do these companies continue to leave DRM like this in older games that no longer require the game to be protected from piracy when a game has already been cracked to begin with. This is stupidity at its finest with developers.

@Sepharo - The headline isn't clickbait. Your brain processed what Blue posted as something else. This kind of tunnel vision comprehension goes to a more significant issue that I've seen on this site were many of you see something other than the posted words. I've called it out more than a few times.

And that is one of the reason why I have him on my ignore list, hes an idiot!

Hrm, looking good already, although apparently 3 years into development, so not that surprising.

I'm interested, and these guys seem to be able to actually release Kickstarted projects in my lifetime... I might contribute.

I already backed it, I liked the first one and these types of games, so I figured you cant go wrong with 24 dollars.

Single-player gaming is very much alive and well, and I salute Piranha Games for knowing the reality and putting the extra effort into a single-player campaign. For this reason alone, I'm going to buy this game, sight unseen, hell I may even PRE-ORDER it, just to support the developer in their decision.

The game also supports 4 players Coop for the Campaign.

Then, your not really a fan. The footage they have shown so far has been pretty good. I have no doubt this will be good once its completed.

Doesn’t help that people have turned the word “addictive” into a positive thing in reference to games. How many review or ads do you see about games where they brag about how addictive their game is?

Addiction is never a good thing. It implies that you’re doing something you probably no longer enjoy, but you’re compelled to waste your time doing it anyway.

Trust me, what you just said, I can almost guarantee you that most of us gamers have been at the point. How many times have some of you gone to your pc felt like playing and game but just stared at your screen wondering what you want to play, but felt like you couldn't bring yourself to playing that game you were thinking about playing. I know I have had that feeling once or twice.
