I really enjoyed rust (for a while at least), but the offline raiding and HORRIBLE community killed it for me. Not to mention the lack of working anticheat and server admins that were worse than actual cheaters.

Good to see it doing well though.

If i was a teenager again i'd probably likely be playing it and nothing else.

Really wish these games had coop for the main campaign. Im happy to let my coop friend control the narrative, I just want to be a sidekick that helps tear up the city.

Same here. I don't know why, but i can't play single player games anymore... i just tune out and go and do something else.

Playing the same game with a friend or family member in co-op is a whole different story though.

I know they've mentioned multiplayer and even co-op as a possibility after the first couple of DLC's, so maybe in 2030 we will be set.

Don’t Just Survive, Thrive!: We’ve removed all negative effects from Hunger and Thirst. Instead, you’ll receive buffs that increase based on how well fed and hydrated you are.
Mixed feelings.....but this is overall probably a good thing. It could be challenging at lower levels to handle food without perks or when you had some kind of disease.

I quite like the mechanic in actual survival games, but in Fallout it just felt like a chore... but not as bad as the inventory/space limit and equipment that constantly breaks.

So it's a good first step but they still have a long way to go. Wayyyyyy too much downtime, and the below average combat mechanics and repetitive MMO style missions don't even begin to offset this.

I only picked it up a few weeks ago on sale, and my takeaway thoughts are -

The game brought the worse elements of the MMO genre (generic, bland quests) and survival genre (never ending thirst, hunger, sickness) and combined them with one of the worst UI's ever seen on PC. Add to that a limited storage space and the endless need to collect thousands of different items to be able to repair your gear and weapons that break after every second fight and you are left with a game that feels more like a second job. Oh, and the combat system (especially the gunplay) was below average at best.

It was a decent time sink during this crazy period, but that's about the only real praise i can give it.

I very nearly purchased Hunt a few months ago... it looks interesting enough from gameplay videos. DLC turned me off, though.

They often have free weekends - id suggest you try it there first. My experience was: slow gameplay, lots of PVE missions/tracking, fight boss, get insta killed by max level dudes camping on a rooftop with a full kit of weapons i could only dream of. Rinse and repeat.

But maybe the playerbase in Oceania isn't high enough to put new players against new players so your experience may vary.

Though I'd much rather player BR games where there's a much more level playing field.

So it's 500$. Yeah, if AMD can match that performance and undercut it by say 50$ it's game over man, game over!

And if the bitboys can release glaze3d with twice the performance for half the price it's really game over, unless intel releases larrabbee with thrice the performance for a third the price!

Not sure what the reference is, but you're making it seem like it's going to be impossible for AMD to compete with Nvidia while at the same time making fun of me? On another note I just noticed that the 3070 features GDDR6 memory, and not the high speed 6x of the 3080.

I'm just laughing at the two ifs. IF they can match and IF they underprice THEN NVIDIA is in trouble.
Two "ifs" kind of make me laugh, because at the most simple case, it's one of 4 scenarios.

And IF they can do it without making a card that sounds like a jet engine taking off, and IF they can do without making a card that's secondary function is a furnace... then yes, NVIDIA is in some serious trouble!

I'm rooting for AMD though, but their cards usually have some serious drawbacks.

AMD's newer Ryzen's are awesome though, so hopefully they can finally work the same magic on their GPU department.

I worked for Apple for years near the start of the decade, leaving as I saw what Tim Cook was doing to the company. Don't get me wrong, Apple under Steve was just as overpriced, but it was good tech. Tim has shifted Apple into producing shitty tech that is incrementally 'NEW' like a Madden or COD game, is designed to fail, is designed to be unrepairable/upgradeable, and is farmed out to the lowest cost slave labor possible.

All of the people who buy Apple need to realize that by using them they are:

- Promoting waste because the machines are designed to fail.
- Buying products from a company that exploits modern day slavery like a plantation owner back in the day.



But...but..... I don't care about that, I just want the latest fashion accessory! And you can't put a price on looking cool

It's funny, because Apple do everything in their power to avoid paying taxes in pretty much every country, meanwhile employing third world slaves to make their products and forcing their customers to do 'what they are told' (use more Apple products/software/services).

And how much did they cry fowl when MS was a so called 'monopoly'.

If a company deserves to get a taste of their own medicine it's Apple.

But i doubt it will ever happen.

right now this game is sorely lacking all kinds of content, especially the story quests. Looks like its best to wait 6 months or so before buying this.

You probably shouldn't be playing survival games for the story.

The Forest was actually pretty good in that regard!

Green hell now has story co-op to, so going back to check that out once i get some time.

As for this game i had high hopes... but the reviews seem to suggest it's best to hold off for quite a while.

a different take:

My buddy and I played a lot of Apex together on the PC, and we ran into some absolute horseshit cheaters and "WTF, that doesnt make sense" moments. So many cheaters or moments that we stopped playing because we were no longer having fun - it turned into "lets see how we die this time around". You'd watch the kill feed and see some "weird character string name", HEADSHOT, "enemy name". and then like 3-5 kills in a near row. Oh look another Wraith who is 200 yards away from her team and killing errbody.

But then my buddy said he'd watch his son play on his console, and it was worlds different in terms of dying or being hit. Everything looked like it made sense - even if there was aim assist or whatever leniency.

Then we experienced the same thing in Warzone, cheaters and strange deaths and I understood why console players there asked to never be paired with PC players

Agreed, cheaters have turned my off many competitive games in the past... however there's definitely ways to combat this. Fortnite had a cheating problem for several months in the beginning, then eventually they found the magic formula and I never saw a single one ever again.

That said, I realise not every Publisher has unlimited funds to throw at the problem like Epic did.

In any case, console players should have to OPT-IN (or team up with a PC player) to be put in the cross play pool within competitive games.

STALKER was probably the biggest disappointment of any game I can recall. Except maybe Asheron's Call 2.

Haha, i definitely agree with you about AC2!!

AC1 Darktide is still my favorite game of all time... but boy was AC2 and abomination. Then again, the MMO genre went to complete trash around that time & is now pretty much dead (thanks Blizzard).

As for Stalker 2, give me some co-op action and count me in.

And how much money they're leaving behind by only having a PvP focus. PvE is what really sells. I'd try it if it wasn't for that.


Except once the novelty of sailing wears off, the PVE is about as fun as a PVE in a MMO....

I played it during a weekend trial last year solely for the PVE, stayed for the PVP, but still left out of boredom (lack of players/interesting things to do).

Maybe things have changed.

Coop, yes. I'm really hoping they didn't leave it out, that was the best fun I had playing these games was with a friend.

OK, I did a little digging, UBI has the game already up for pre-order. here are some details that I know some of you want to know about Coop. This is straight from their page.

Release date: February 18, 2021
Genre: Shooter, Open World, FPS, Co-op, Multiplayer
Single player: Yes

So, Yep, I'm a happy camper. This is now high on my want list.

Any coop far cry will be on my list, every time.

Thanks, sounds great!

I just hope it's co-op through the full campaign without limitations, i know i avoided some of the previous installments as the co-op was limited to some side missions / outposts only.
