How about a really, really, really shallow battle royale game? One that everyone can play... and that works on your mobile and in your browser?!?!

I remember playing it during a free weekend and found it quite enjoyable, though that's probably because it was different to the usual types of games I play. That said I played it in co-op and we were primarily doing stupid stuff, exploring and beating each others scores.

For free it's worth a shot.

News Comments > SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest This Month

Tried the campaign co-op but man they ruined it, there was pretty much no action, it was all just walking and chat boxes... talk about boring.

Not only that, but characters you level up, stat up, and kit out just randomly die in the story without anything you can do about it.

Combat was also meh, and everything just felt extremely linear with little effect, from itemisation to stats/levels, as was the RTS aspect.

Spellforce 1 was so much better in every aspect, it was all downhill from there.

I didn't even finish the last game in the series, the game gets stale rather quickly to me for some reason... which is weird as in paper it's really up my alley with decent fps mechanics and proper coop support.

Probably one of my favourite games ever, even better in co-op.

Get it.

Pro-tip, manticores.

Wildlands was quite enjoyable, but the mission variety was terribly lacking...as was the AI.

Hell, FC New Dawn was miles better in most aspects.

Fk off with reskinned buildings and gear, ADD MORE CONTENT!!

Your dungeons are a joke, as are your PVE raids.
Add things for PLAYERS TO DO.

How hard is it? Funcom strikes again... good core mechanics ruined by shit management and poor design.

Looks like it's quite linear with little replayability... though i'll wait for some reviews first.

Bring on Dying Light 2.

News Comments > Anno 1800 Released

I gave this one a shot but it felt like it was just a checklist of things i had to do rather than being able to experiment and build a city of my own.

Each play-through felt very samey as well, and the naval combat but no land battles further inhibited replayability.

A weekend was more than enough for me, which is disappointing as there a distinct lack of city building games out there and even fewer that have multiplayer.

There's a real lack of information around how multiplayer / co-op works...

I really enjoyed the first one as well, had quite a bit of replayability with the weapon and gear drops and was enjoyable in co-op.

Reviews looks promising and it's currently buy one copy get one free.. so i may just have to check this one out as well.

Another game i was really looking forward to... shame about the mixed reviews.

Still keen, but probably best to check back in 6-12 months by the sounds of it.

Was really hoping this would be a surprise hit... i mean, they already had an awesome (yet buggy) Engine so a lot of the work should have already been done?

Think i'll stick playing Hunter Call of the Wild co-op until they add more content and improve things here.

I watched a few games on twitch. One thing that immediately pops out. The map is fucking tiny, even compared to Apex Legends. It's miniscule.

Is that necessarily a bad thing though? I watched a few streams and nobody even had a kill well into their matches. In the end i only saw one snippet of combat before I got bored of watching people loot buildings and play with vehicles... and that's with a 'supposed' smallish map.

It honestly needs to be f2p. I saw very little that would draw people away from their current BR game. Maybe i'll try it when it's heavily discounted, but after the mess that was BF1 i have very little motivation to try this...

And the kids have already moved on to Apex for the next few months before they move on to the next big free multiplayer drug. If you base the success of your game on catering to ADHS kids, you should expect to not be long in business.

Fortnite and PUBG are still of the most played and most profitable games on the planet and have been since they were release back in 2017.

So yeah, might want to check that logic.

This game looks to be the poster child for pay2win and micro transactions. No thanks. Like I said in an earlier thread...eagerly awaiting WoW Classic


Ah yes, the MMO that completely ruined the genre

News Comments > BioWare Offers Anthem Post-Launch Thoughts
21. Re: BioWare Offers Anthem Post-Launch Thoughts Mar 20, 2019, 16:32 Osc8r
 
I personally find the gunplay and combat mechanics FAR better in Anthem than Division.

In the Division 2 guns still sound like toys, and have no real weight or impact... and the gameplay is just a matter of running from cover to cover to cover. Meh. Definitely not satisfying to me.

Just a shame that Anthem didn't get anything else right.

I'd take Far Cry New Dawn gunplay over them both (and the audio absolutely destroys both Div and Anthem), but it's another game that lacks content and variety.

Maybe they'll insert another "bug" that makes drop rates somewhat reasonable. By all accounts the only time the end game has been fun is when one of these "bugs" pops up.

But even then legendary loot in this game isn't all that legendary at all...

You find more interesting gear in Borderlands at like level 5.

And what do you do when you eventually get a few decent legendary pieces? The higher difficulties drop chance doesn't even come close to offsetting the additional time investment (read: mob hp inflation), so you basically just grind on the same mobs in the Rage stronghold on the same difficulty and quit before the boss in a hope to get more legendary pieces that are virtually pointless anyway...

But that's if you can even get into a fresh Rage stronghold, most of the time you ended up in a Rage stronghold that's in progress due to everyone else in the game doing the exact same thing, so you're basically playing watch the loading screens.

The whole things a fkn mess. So much wasted potential.
