Congrats to PLAYERUNKNOWN and Bluehole for PUBG beating out KotK on the top 10 peak concurrent players: https://twitter.com/BattleRoyaleMod/status/856164010198056960

That list can't be right, or I'm missing something somewhere.

Yeah probably the latter. That's Steam Charts, they've been around a long time and seem pretty accurate: http://steamcharts.com/

Played a 2v2 against a couple of comps, got totally stomped, but felt great to play it again. Will have to put some more games in this weekend.

Meh....PUBG is an early access title....and it is fully playable. Oh, it needs some optimization, polish, and hopefully more content...but it is well worth $30 even in its current state. PU has enough cred from his mod work in the past that I'm fine supporting this one.

Funny thing is, I'd put this one up against quite a few of the fully released games folks have bought for $60.

Exactly. People that are familiar with PlayerUnknown and the Battle Royale scene will have no problem dealing with PUBG's growing pains because they know the game has a competent dev team and a strong vision, despite not being a AAA studio and going through Steam Early Access.

They've said that they have about 30-35 people on the team. AAA studios have 10 times that or more.

Well, this definitely isn't my genre, but even so this looks pretty boring, 90% of the time. Good luck with this.

This is much more of a thinking man's game than H1Z1, that's for sure. It's much closer to the pacing and strategic depth of the ARMA 3 BR mod. The circle is also much less forgiving than H1Z1, so you can't just camp outside the circle and tank the damage with boosts. It makes for very intense late games, which really gets the blood pumping.

wwas pretty psyched for this, until reading the steam negative reviews, same exact shit I've been saying forever, that UE4 is totally broken in open-world environments.

People are playing at VERY LOW settings (yes, there is a "very low" setting for everything) on a 980ti and getting 20-30 FPS.

it's EA sure, but come on, this is beyond an optimization thing, the engine is just fucking garbage.

They outlined their plans for optimizations in the dev blog, it should be getting much better soon.

People that review Early Access games need to actually read what the developers say about the known issues and development plans. If people are buying the game in its current state and expecting finished-game quality and performance that's on them.

Having said that, I agree though that performance is the biggest problem with the game currently, and really looking forward to the optimization updates.

I've been playing this since closed alpha (November of last year) and its obvious that they are serious about their development plans and they made huge strides in fleshing out the world between alpha and beta with only a couple of months in between. So I know they are making a good faith effort in the development of this game.

Also Unreal Engine has been used successfully in many open world games. They used UE3 for Tera, their last MMORPG.

Hyper Light Drifter is a lot harder than it would be without the 30FPS cap. That's why I stopped playing it anyways.

I have thousands of hours in this game but haven't spent much time with the revitalization. Too many other games to play. Kudos to Hi-Rez for their course correction. It's too bad they didn't do this 2 or 3 years ago when it still had tens of thousands of players though.

Ive been a player since the beta. I dont recall ever seeing that many players. Hundreds yes, tens of thousands? nah.

Not concurrently, although around 2011-2012 it did have 2-3000 concurrent: http://steamcharts.com/app/17080#All

This is an insta-buy for me. Looks like a fantastic homage to the original Fallout games and it's got great reviews.

This game still exists?

Uh... yes? It's one of if not THE most popular RTS games out there, with a huge esports scene and the final expansion Legacy of the Void just recently entering beta.

Just because YOU don't play something doesn't mean a lot of other people don't, or aren't looking forward to the next big release.

I tried the demo earlier this week and after a few minutes was hooked and bought the game. Played a little coop multiplayer last night, it's a lot of fun, but OMG the AI must have been hacking, SO many deaths

If I had one complaint it would be the limited selection of weapons and equipment you get at first. Takes a while to level up enough to use the good stuff.

Wonder if my GTX 970 SLIs can handle this at 4K. Probably not, thanks to the 3.5GB thing. GTA IV was a total VRAM hog.

You could get WoL and HotS for $10 each directly from Blizzard around Black Friday last year.

Everyone should try the demo -- it's fantastic. Multiplayer in the full game is great as well, very smooth, which is amazing to me considering the amount of stuff going on.

This game was so epic back in 1993 I couldn't believe you could set trees on fire during a gun fight lol was mind blowing back then.


Absolutely epic indeed.

The depth of the game for the time was amazing, and once you eventually got up to miniguns it was an absolute blast.
For the style of the game, I didn't play anything that even came close for years.

I'm afraid I won't be playing this however. With the original running at what? max 640/480 or thereabouts? my eyes would bleed spinning it up on a 2560/1440 monitor.
The game would need some serious reworking for my tastes.

Modern spiritual successor to Syndicate.

NHL 94 was one of my absolute favorites. I played what was probably my greatest prank on my brothers when I told them that "Pull" was a really good goalie. If you don't know, what that actually does is pull your goalie out of the game, leaving it wide open. Hilarity ensues.
