That Survival Mode looks kind of cool... And annoying heh... The lower carry weight will probably suck more than the other changes though ; )

That's cool... I enjoyed the demo on PS4 a while back, but not enough to run out and buy it... And it's hard to get myself to play on there when everything is so much better on PC... So the chance of getting it for cheap on PS4 just became zero.

I assume you mean grey market crap like nuuvem... But GMG has it for a little less using their usual 20% coupon... I posted about it in a previous thread, but don't have that info atm.

Hob looks pretty good! Reminds me of Bastion, but more puzzly.

Great little game for sitting on the couch with a controller.

As long as you don't do that via steamlink, which causes it to crash.. seems to be a pretty rough launch (Also I had no idea Ogre engine still even exists)

I got this on GOG, and have hit many crashes... Stopped playing, and will consider a refund if it continues. Looks like a new version hit (again), so will try that first.

Irregardless of the crashes, I wouldn't recommend it for the gameplay, but I'm hopeful that opinion will change with seeing more of the upgrades and such.

I hope they don't become one of those companies that goes around suing anyone who has anything that has even remotely similar gameplay.

I hope they do... No faster way for them to lose money, and learn from their bullshit.

Did PUBG do anything original? Serious question... No interest in it, and didn't even know Fortnite had a Battle Royale mode, which as a game concept has been around since what, the first generation of shooters?

Yea, that trailer was pretty badass. I dont care about the microtrans actions, they are just for people who are too impatient to get some look they like from just playing the game. I loved the first one. Got mine preordered for 42$.

$42 is a good deal... Which urged me to check GMG's usual 20% coupon... They're selling it for $50.99, but the coupon I found on slickdeals (35SOW), dropped it to $33.14 USD. Which is about half what I would be getting it for elsewhere, so ya, I'm gonna jump on that... Loved the first... Loot boxes don't bother me (it's just another RNG format).

I'm still on the fence... Thoroughly enjoyed the first, and played through twice, which is still pretty rare for me.

But launch prices suck, especially up here... Can get it cheaper on GMG, which is nice, and hasn't happened for years (with Steam prices beating GMG after exchange).

Really depends on how much I'm jonesing for something while I wait on Destiny 2... Been playing Borderlands Pre-Sequel obsessively lately, but I can't expect that to last over a month. Maybe I'll pick up Metroid ; )

What's a pro-tard?

I'm assembling my fuckwit to English dictionary, I'd appreciate a proper definition.

The guy you're responding to... Didn't think anyone could be worse than Cutter, but holy shit...

As for all the bitching about them announcing DLC 3 days after console launch, could someone source that? Blues news up there very specifically states it wasn't announced, but lists a tweet where the usual token response of denying it until it's announced. Which people would also bitch about...

You guys really need to wait until the game ships before announcing DLC.

The game is already out...

And... Just look at Destiny 1's release dates... It's not hard to figure out the pattern.

I've played Destiny, Destiny 1.5..errr 2 and Warframe and Warframe is superior to both version of Destiny. Plus it's free*.

* - It's recommended that you buy a little platinum to open up slots and stuff for more weapons and Warframes but the cash investment to get rolling in Warframe is a lot less than getting into Destiny 2 (considering extremely pricey DLCs and expansions that will gimp you if you don't get them are a certainty as per the original Destiny).

I've played a few hundred hours of Warframe, though not much in the last 2 years or so, because it's so hard to get back into it when shit has changed so much. I'd like a story/unlock reset that lets me start a new frame from the beginning, but it doesn't work like that...

Anyhow... Was just meaning to say that I agree that Warframe's grind is far superior (as in, more grindy) than Destiny, so ya, it has that : )

Which ran really well (after disabling AA/lowering Shadows, like I do on most titles at 4K, on a 980 Ti)... I wasn't staring at the frame rate during the Strike (that I played 3 times), but did not notice any frame rate issues, and thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. Probably helps that I played with a friend that wouldn't run off every time I died heh (and vice versa).

Think this will be enjoyable playing solo? Are pub groups a thing? My gaming opportunities tend to be rather random and inconsistent, so any kind of regular gaming time with others is unlikely for me.

Oh, and I'm most likely all in on Shadow of War too. Had a lot of fun with the first one

I enjoyed the first solo... There's a storyline progression (One of the aspects they focused on for the second), so I expect to also enjoy the second this way. Much like other 'MMO' style games though, there's the campaign, then the 'real game', which is mostly about doing the same content over and over until DLC. I've played MMOs on and off for 15 years, and 95% of that time solo, so it's a good fit for me ; )

Since I never played the first, I'm hoping this one will feel fresh and fun for me. I'm downloading the beta now, so I'll hopefully be playing in a couple of hours. Maybe that will be enough to tell me whether it's worth pre-ordering for whatever extra stuff that gets me. Of course there's 2 months before release, so no real rush to pre-order.

Pre-Order incentives rarely do anything for me... I Pre-ordered this because I liked the first (without any DLC and very little PS+) because I'm obsessive (and impatient) and want to play it at launch. Patient enough to play it at 4K though, instead of on a console. I also bought it with WoW gold, so not much loss if I end up hating it... The Shadow of War I'll likely buy around launch is a bigger risk : )

They could literally make a GOT total conversion mod out of Skyrim and that would be good enough for most of the targeted audience.

Maybe this is why they were going to charge for mods... And also why it won't happen now ; )

What an awful, horrible, terrible, atrocious, despicable, shameful trailer...

What I learned from this trailer is that companies will slap together teasers which literally tell you absolutely nothing except for your typical green hair looking alt-left extreme feminist type.

While I also don't like the minimalist (regarding info/reveal) nature of teaser trailers, I find your comment awful, horrible, terrible, atrocious, despicable and shameful ; )

Played the PS4 Beta, and looking forward to trying out the Strike this time... Don't much care for the DLC model of the first (and likely no changes for this one), but enjoyed what I had access to... And surprising to me, didn't mind the controller based FPS after a bit of acclimation.
