News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II Incorporating Beta Feedback

Nice, now they just have to make the game fun.

A bit or depth and replayability wouldn't hurt either.

Oh yeah, and a server browser. Maybe you guys could fit that into a crate?

News Comments > Fortnite Battle Royale Boasts 10M Players
13. Re: Fortnite Battle Royale Boasts 10M Players Oct 12, 2017, 17:59 Osc8r
 
First match i ever played i won, with 6 kills.

Second match i got into the final four before getting insta-killed by a guy headshotting people through mountains.

Third match i got killed by the same guy, through a similar sized mountain.

Luckily things got a little better from there, though I wonder how many of those 10 million are script kiddies making new accounts with fake email addresses, or people playing with their partners on the OCE server and getting auto banned for 'teaming' before making two more accounts (rinse and repeat).

Quite an enjoyable, casual take on the BR genre and the building component and destructible structures makes for refreshing, faster paced gameplay, but it desperately needs some work (don't they all) and anti-cheat (let's hope battle eye helps - though i have my doubts when it takes 10 seconds to make a new account - f2p ftw!).

Also, where's the FOV settings? Besides the one switch in the ini that is...

They also really need to add OCE duo servers, i'd hazard a guess that they'd be much more popular than the squad servers here.

Oh, and i despise the pink/blue haze that makes it's way into every second match... it makes my eyes bleed even with post processing turned down.

Still waiting on a BR done in the frostbite engine by a AAA dev. Light sabres optional.

Lots of potential but the missions were extremely repetitive with very little challenge or variation.

Quite enjoyable in co-op though.

Yep, i've got to say that fighting to be the last man standing brings out much more intensity than trying to top some scoreboard round after round.

Awesome graphics and sounds... but that's about it.

Definitely better than the last one, but gameplay is still shallow and super repetitive, out of bounds everywhere you walk, and the spawn points are a complete joke i.e. you kill someone and they back in your face 5 seconds later.

I can see why Battle Royal games are taking off now - they offer way more depth and tactics than this mindless team zerging and instant respawning BS.

5 hours was more than enough for me.

News Comments > Fortnite Battle Royale Battles Cheaters
3. Re: Fortnite Battle Royale Battles Cheaters Oct 6, 2017, 19:05 Osc8r
 
I've only played about 10 matches so far and i've already come across three BLATANT scripties. And this is on the OCE servers...

I'm sure account the possible loss of progression and skins is going to be a massive deterrent to cheaters... right Epic?

Being F2P will kill this game.

-edit-

Ok, after playing a good 20 matches or so i've got to say this is the worst game for hacking i've ever seen. It makes it so damn easy to spot them too, as once they kill you you get to spectate them - some of them just spin around with no clip bullets and kill everyone within their predefined range.

Time to uninstall this POS.

Agents of Mayhem would have been an insta-buy for myself and my friends they wouldn't have made the stupid decision to leave out co-op. This is like the perfect game for it too.

I would image that's a big reason for the low sales.

True, i would have at least tried it if it had co-op...although all the reviews seems to suggest it's super linear and super repetitive. So probably a good thing they left it out and saved me the $.

The only person who should be fired is the muppet who decided to make this crap instead of another Saints Row.

Oh, and their marketing department.

Ah Blizzard/Activision, how the mighty have fallen

Yep, it was all downhill after WC3.

Games for the console/mobile generation is what they do best so i'm surprised they hadn't this sooner.

Might have to check this out at some point - doesn't look anywhere near as bad (read: repetitive) as the PVE game... plus it's free.

Hopefully DOS stays up there for a long time - awesome game that deserves a tonne of sales.

Best RPG since the original Baldurs Gate (with real co-op to boot!).

PUBG's not half bad either

What did these guys do right, that games like DayZ and H1Z1 didn't?

Even as far as shooters go, the one shot, no respawns king of the hill games were never exactly popular.

Personally, I'm stoked at their achievement, but I just don't get it.

KOTK was often in the steam to 10 and the game was a stinking POS that got progressively worse every patch. This was enough of a clue that there was a huge untapped market right there...

BG is more accessible and appears to be run by a company that knows what they are doing - with the game constantly changing/improving.

Looks like that's all it took.

I've been asking for years why a AAA company hasn't tried their hands at it. Hunger games in the frostbite engine would be fkn epic, and wildlands seems like it has most assets already in place for it to happen (beyond decent gunplay that is).

/shrug

Good on them though.
