What can a pc do that a console does not these days?

For starters it can run games at much better quality, higher resolutions, with actual anti aliasing, G-sync, and at more than a vomit inducing 30 FPS?

Oh yeah, and there's more than 10 games available - 99% of the original stuff these days is done by indies on steam.

Sounds like it may have proper co-op as well, fingers crossed it doesn't suck.

I'm not sure what M$ is thinking here, Obsidian pretty exclusively makes cRPGs, a genre that has never done well on consoles.

Still.. sucks. Not every game of theirs was a success, but Obsidian (and many of it's developers) have been involved in making some of the best RPGs in gaming history.

Maybe they see it starting to change. Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity, and Divinity Original Sin all have console versions and apparently they did well enough to have their sequels come out (or about to come out) on the same consoles. Has to be a viable market there if these companies are willing to pump money into porting and Q&A for them.

I recently developed bad carpal tunnel in my right hand and can't play the CRPGs I always have since mouse movement gives me pain. Due to this, I grabbed Pillars of Eternity on Xbox and was amazed at how well it controlled. Same for Wasteland 2. Though Divinity Original Sin 2 has fully integrated gamepad controls on PC, most of these CRPGs do not. It's really helped me continue to play these games even though I no longer am able to hold a mouse. Good for gamers well into their 40s like myself.

Though it's not due to that, I think Microsoft just sees CRPGs moving to the console in much the same way JRPGs have begun to move to the PC. Both the PC and console are so similar now as platforms, that there exists no reason why one style of game would be considered better suited for one over the other. Especially if that rumor about the next Xbox having mouse support in games is true.

Just a thought.

Try the 3M vertical mouse, or switch your mouse to your other hand (took me about 3 days to get used to it). I can't even pickup a regular mouse these days without getting pain in my hand.

I don't know why people don't like Fortnite. It's keeping all the 12-year-olds out of real games.

Then why are you here?

Is Blackout already dying? It used to have somewhat comparable figures to Fortnite on twitch, these days it has a fraction of that and often isn't even in the top 5...

People finally realised it's just a shallow console game?

Oh noes, PVP, what ever will i do if someone attacks me whilst i kill braindead mobs over and over and over and over and over.

But yes, i agree, they should have PVE servers so they can keep their carebear BS rules off the PVP servers, cause currently the game caters to neither market.

Some of my best memories in gaming are still from AC1 darktide, hanging out in newby zones and protecting the new players from 'random pk's'. Or raiding & holding RPK's towns or hunting spots with alliances of 'anti pk's.

Griefers, pre-teens and random pk's = content in well designed PVP games, just a shame these games died when WOW turned PVP into some console, instanced, carebear fest where PVP was nothing more than an emotionless PVP point grind.

Nah, 2004 was still good. WoW was awesome.
Their downfall began with Cataclysm. That expansion felt like a totally different developer had taken over and was aiming for the mobile phone/Facebook game crowd.

That's how WOW always felt to me - a MMO targeting pre-teens and casual gamers. Hell, they even managed to turn PVP into a meaningless gear/point grind.

They single handedly ruined the MMO genre.

Blackout had 10hz tickrates and right now it has 20hz tickrates.

Game is complete trash

Game is not complete trash. Even with 20hz tickrate it feels much smoother and more responsive than PuBG. The movement and gunplay are spot on. It's faster paced and more fun. Not saying that reducing server tick rate is anything but a dick move, just saying that Blackout (the only mode I've played) is pretty damn solid.

It is though, it feels and plays like your typical arcadey COD port with the netcode from H1Z1.

This thing is going to be a total clusterfuck.

“At the end of the day the results come from playing it and getting feedback, and not from any sort of locked down design doc,” Pete continues. “If somebody is trying to kill you and you don't want to fight them you can run away but you can't fast travel away. That’s a Fallout rule. But, in a multiplayer setting you're just kind of rewarding the person who's being annoying by not giving the other player a means of escape. So why not get rid of the rule that says you can't fast travel when enemies are near if the enemy is a person who's trying to murder you. Things like that come from play-testing and figuring out what feels right, as opposed to does it make logical sense in terms of the world and setting.”

Why the fuck should I have to flee to begin with? That means a griefer is already ruining my game. Just have PvP servers and/or toggles to begin with and you avoid all that unnecessary bullshit. It's like this clown has never played a single game with heavy griefing in it and has no idea how bad it can get and how psychotic a lot of people out there are. Anyway, I'm out.


So everytime you run away from a monster in PVE you are getting griefed as well? lol

I've played PVP full loot games since Darktide.

Can't say i've ever had a problem with griefers - PKERS were 'content'.

People are too soft these days, especially after WOW turned PVP into a point grind to keep the carebear kiddies happy...

I mean what more do you want, you take reduced damaged from players (unless you fight back), can fast travel away, and can see everyone on the map...like WTF...

But with that said, i agree, they should have PVE servers for people who enjoy killing/grinding on mindless AI and leave this carebear BS off the PVP servers. Just add a system where people who constantly attack others become outcasts, and have bounties/rewards attached to them. Make griefers 'content' for the rest us.

Trash netcode, terrible TTK, crappy rendering (at distance), average gun play, low skill ceiling. Feels like your typical console COD game with BR mode tacked on...hell, the map was even a copy and paste job.

Not sure what all the fuss is about TBH. And the BR mode isn't even free.

Shame they aren't replacing the producers and authors (and a lot of the actors for that matter) of the TV series as well.

Anyone watch the latest season of Fear the Walking dead? Geez..what a disaster...it feels like a poorly made MOCKbuster written by a first grader. And Morgan as lead? WTF...like the show doesn't have enough whiny little bitches who can't make a single believable/intelligent decision...

That aside, i wish all the Telltale employees the best.

Wow. My brother and I were planning on getting this, but with all the co-op limitations and gates you guys are talking about, that's not happening any more.

*sigh*

Why does it seem so hard for companies to make good/rewarding co-op without a bunch of BS attached or really awful gameplay/mechanic decisions?

Oh well, two lost sales.

Agreed, but i'm still having a lot of fun. If you're friend enters a race with a class of vehicle you don't have you can borrow his... so best just to buy vehicles of the same class together.

Just wish it was more clear on what defines class, as it's not the point/ranking system or tier of vehicle, i guess it's defined by the actual type of base car i.e. sports, supercar, hypercar, cruisers etc.

Sooooooo much better than the crew 2.

Bit buggy, but enjoying it overall.

Only wish the progression in these games was slower / more rewarding. Within a day i pretty much had a maxed hypercar, which was made even worse by all the 'spin to win' stuff.

I honestly can't believe how bad the microsoft store / xbox live app crap is... geez guys, ever used steam before? You're only about a decade behind the times.

Is the progression really that fast? Feels way to slow for me. It seems like hours before you can unlock it so the kids can play bumper cars with each other online. Am I doing something wrong? I played all night, knocked down mission after mission and a lot of stuff is still locked out, like co-op or any MP at all that I can tell.

Driving feels great though. Set it to pro difficulty as I don't want to mess around with tire wear and damage outside of proper races and it scratches my Project Gotham itch perfectly.

I have a coop buddy I play with constantly and he gifted me the premium version (or whatever its called), which I believe comes with a bonus to money earned. It also came with a free hypercar and a bunch of decent cars which I avoided using for the above reason. I also played on higher difficulty with most aides off which gave even more bonus.

Even doing that I still had 2.5 million in about a day. Though I got pretty lucky with some wheel spins. If I was playing solo I could have just cruised along at my own pace, but my mate kept purchasing higher tiered vehicles and the game wouldn't let me play coop with him using my own cars (even if I had modded them up to his class - very confusing). So in the end I had to spend the cash, and once you go to class x it's hard to go back

To unlock coop it took me a bit over an hour I think. From memory you had to get to autumn? If you hover over the multiplayer option in the menu it should give you more info. That said I was getting dropped offline randomly especially if I afkd in a shop / my house. Stupid xbox BS.

Had a $500 asus motherboard from 2017 and my ancient x-fi card made a massive difference in audio quality when I got round to plugging it in, even with my old Logitech thx 2.1 speakers.

Bought a pair of DT-990 pro headphones recently and they sound amazing... decided to upgrade to an AE-5 with an onboard AMP and it also made a very noticeable impact over the x-fi.

TLDR onboard sound still sucks.
