UO was amazing, but unfortunately i got into it a bit late, but AC Darktide is still my favorite gaming experience bar nothing.

The open PVP with item drop was amazing back then, even mundane tasks (such as the PVE grind) was so much more exciting when you knew you could be attacked by another player at any point.

Guilds would fight over towns and leveling spots, the politics had meaning and depth. Guilds declaring war/KOS to each other then forming alliances etc etc...

One of my favorite things to do (as an anti-pk as we called it), was to hang out in town as a low level character, helping well behaved newbies with advice, gear, learning magic etc. Then if a RPK (random PK - usually in the guild: Blood) came into town and killed me or the other noobs for no reason i'd log in as my main and take some of their loot

Good times!

PVP these days is usually just a meaningless grind (thank you WOW), where red=dead for pretty much everyone involved. And there's usually no item drop either, so it doesn't matter how many times you kill your enemy their strength doesn't change... dying = click respawn and fight the same people again 30 seconds later /yawn.

TBH the only somewhat recent game i've experienced that brings back some of that thrill has been Rust. But sadly, i simply don't have enough time to commit to that type of game anymore

I quite enjoyed Gloomhaven (in co-op), even though it's not really my type of game.

It sure did have a LOT of content, but it started getting a little repetitive after a while.

It led me to finding Wildermyth... which is a damn unique and really enjoyable game. A true gem, which puts most AAA games to shame (though i guess that isn't much of an ask these days).

Meh, I think I'm done with this franchise - even for free. I've finished four of the five previous games (excluding 2) and I get the general impression that 6 is the same old thing with a new coat of paint.

Agreed, it's just doing the same thing over and over... which is what we have already done in the previous games, over and over.

And the difficulty just keeps getting easier and easier. There's absolutely no challenge, or reason to use stealth. What was the point in swapping damage types when most enemies die in 1-2 shots anyway.. and the bosses weren't much better. Honestly, setting off all the alarms was the only way i could keep myself awake. How hard is it to add a difficulty slider?!!

It's a shame, because the engine and game world are brilliant but the whole experience was just MEH.

Oh, but it's a free weekend! Definitely worth a shot for free, and a weekend is likely all you will need with this one.

Ps if you guys like challenging darksoul type games with proper co-op, check out Nioh 2! Just came across this one last month and i'm hooked.

Well it's been pretty much dead for 12+ months (avg players = 250).

Think OCE land it was 90% bots even in late 2020. It's a shame, i actually didn't mind the game and thought it had potential.

There's definitely a lack of hunting games out there, especially ones with co-op.

Though It would have to be pretty special to compete with Call of the Wild, but fingers crossed!

The gunplay and combat was below average, and very forgettable overall. Every round felt very similar, as there was no real map variety or interesting POI's.

They would want to have made some MAJOR changes to the game, as the game has already failed once (there was like 200 players in total back in December and i couldnt even find a match).

Uhh, good luck with that! It was down to 200 players at one point. Even when there was 3000 players i gave up after an hour of sitting the in the queue.

It was pretty bad from memory, everything was a shade of brown and the combat was terrible.

DD1 was amazing with heaps of depth, customization, replayability....

Everything they've done since though has been terrible to average at best IMO.

Terrible game, just doing the same thing over and over (and which we've already done over and over in the past few Far Cry's) but now with ZERO challenge.

At least give us a meaningful difficulty slider or something....

Yeah, really enjoyed the first 2 but this one was very... average. Having two different types of maps/area's requiring different types of traps was lame, as was the lack of map variety (always multiple entrances as mentioned in here already).

Temporary issues aside, it looks awesome to me.... just a shame the co-op system is so restrictive and lame. Just let people play through the entire game with a friend or two if they want, sheesh.

Combat seems different, and quite impactful, graphics are good, but at the moment i'm just an errand boy... running from person to person, often when they are within a metre of each other.

Kill objective quests are over in like 30 seconds, then it's back to being an errand boy and clicking through more text spam (i had to setup a macro to save my fingers!).

So far 95% of my time has been clicking through menus and traveling from one text clicking quest giver to the next, occasionally doing some mind numbingly easy activities in between.

Gear system also seems very... lame. Different rarities just seem to have slightly better stats, nothing that changes your abilities or playstyle in the slightest.

Hopefully thing improve at higher levels because its feeling... grindy already.

Oh, and what's with all the single player only missions? Isn't this meant to be an MMO....

The Tiny Tina DLC was the high point of BL2 IMO, and way more memorable than all of BL3.

So on paper it looks good to me, but time (and reviews) will tell.

I thought the first game was just OK and the second one I have been "meh" about. But now that I know Cutter isn't going to buy it because it is "woke", I am definitely going to buy it. Might even buy a few extra copies as gifts.

I'm TRYING to get into the first game, but christ on a cracker it's boring as hell. I think I'm on my 3rd attempt and I just hate the game.

I found it to be less "give a fuck about the story" and more "how many hilarious ways can I kill zombies?" Like I said, the story is OK but it's what I can do in the game that appeals to me.

And, as stated, I pre-purchased the second and I am pre-loading it now. I would like to support as many "woke" games as possible.

I think I might pick this up because of the 4 player drop in co-op. I'm going to try to at least finish the story in Dying Light's main game.

IMO, that's the way to play these games. Play co-op with friends and complete missions. I barely pay attention to the story in most games I play because I rarely find them interesting (mostly boring). The last game I played that kept my interest (story-wise) was the original Gothic way back in 2001. 😀 I play games for a challenge, strategy, etc, not for predictable plot lines that I've seen in movies. So whether a game has a good story or not, it doesn't mean that the gameplay sucks or you can't find ways to have fun

Same. Stories in video games are mostly TERRIBLE, and just re-hashed cookie cutter garbage.

I'm just here to loot, and kill zombies with mates!

Yeah, remember when Blizzard would take game designs and then polish them up into amazing creations w/ deep mechanics.

"Deep" mechanics in a Blizzard game? Thanks for the laugh .

As for monetization, I'd say Blizzard definitely do not need Activision or Microsoft for that. They are greedy enough all by themselves.

Yeah, i was going to same the same thing... but im getting old, so my memory could be failing me lol

I remember Blizzard copying designs, polishing them, then marketing them very well... but deep mechanics? I recall quite the opposite. They usually remove depth to appeal to the mindless masses.

It looks awesome, but why on earth do they have to make the co-op system so... terrible and cumbersome.

Just let us play the game all the way through with friends if we choose.

You can do that, if you and your friends put a password into the network menu. Then you exclusively invite each other. It worked beautifully in DS3, except for the couple of areas which are single player only.

I guess the issue is that you have to repeat each level for each member of your party, so you may end up doing the same level 3 times in a row, but it gives everyone a chance to let loose, as they have virtually no consequences when in the phantom form.

Thanks, i hope you are right!!

From what i read you need to find a summoning point and use a consumable item, then your friend had to have fingers or something to be able to join...

People were saying it only worked if you had completed the same boss (and only the hosts progress was saved in co-op), and you had to stay near each other / possibly time limited as well? Oh, and that the horses/mounts weren't available in co-op.

Hopefully it's not that limited or painful! These days it should really just be finding a friend in steam and clicking join party, done. Drop in / drop out and progress saved for everyone. Not sure why we need all the other nonsense. Guess i'll just play the wait and see game...

How anyone can enjoy that steaming pile of horse sh*t is beyond me, i mean, 2042 was bad and all but COD is far worse.
