News Comments > The Crew 2 in June

I really enjoyed the first - though the multiplayer sucked, the story sucked, and the car balance sucked.

The vehicle switching thing in 2 looks like it could negatively impact things.. but hey, time will tell.

Still, there's not many decent free roam / co-op racing games around so count me interested.

Is the game audio that bad they feel the need to cover it up with shitty music?

I'll try it because it's mechwarrior co-op, but after the abortion that mech online turned out to be i have fairly low hopes.

Not to mention what an environmental nightmare they are. They should just ban them outright. There is zero legitimate need or use for cryptocurrency.

Except most of 'them' aren't even proof of work.

Oh, and i think you will find some of the biggest and most successful companies on the planet are investing into blockchain tech. No legitimate use? Fkn lmao.

Maybe try doing some research instead of smoking that media BS.

Is there any depth or replayability to this?

Tried it for a few hours and it seemed to get old rather quick.

When the first game came out, I found it rather weak, it had tone of potential but got really boring, really fast, got my money back in seconds flat.

However, after playing Vermintide II closed beta, I have a really hard time putting it down

Hmm, i felt the same about the first one. Played it during a 'free weekend' even and was done with it in about 6 hours.

Maybe i should look into this one a little more... (it does have co-op after all).

Game was so.... repetitive. The gun play, weapons sounds, and AI sponges were the icing on the cake corn kernel on the turd.

Hopefully they fixed the netcode... cause back in the regular BR days cars would be 10 metres out between players (ever try and run someone over in this game? lol).

But yeah, they seem to be scrambling to keep players so i have my doubts, plus it IS daybreak after all - so if anything they've likely made it worse.

Meanwhile Paragon is balling in the corner. Crying

Paragon died a long time before fortnite came along, and they only have themselves to blame for that. Patch after patch they made the game worse and completely ignored their community (well, apart from the Epic fanboys on reddit).

News Comments > Fortnite Adds New Mode; Getting Jetpacks

5. Re: etc. Feb 27, 2018, 17:16 Osc8r
 
Seems the jetpacks are being delayed till next week, so we are getting a hunting rifle instead.

Which is a shame, because my main complaint (besides bloom/spread) at the moment is that the endgame is so... slow and repetitive (especially in duos and squads). The rest of the game is fast paced, then you get to the end and it's always 3-4 massive bases full of snipers just turtling hoping they get lucky with the gas RNG.

So i was hoping that jetpacks would alleviate that issue somewhat and add more gameplay variety and strategy. I'm also purplexed why they made launch pads so damn rare.

Doubt they'd ever remove rocket riding though, there's no reason why the would. What other game does this? It suits the game to a T.

Well is it enough of a problem for Samsung to get out of the business.

Samsung was never truly in the business of making "OLED" panels for TVs. They are pushing their aging LED line with a bullshit Q in front of it to confuse people for as long as possible until they can mass produce Micro LED panels.

Frankly the only TV maker other than LG making anything worth a damn is Sony, they have the best motion processing tech in the business and source panels from everyone. They even have a truly incredible OLED sets.

Pretty much.

They had no answer for OLED (and couldn't compete in manufacturing) so they let their marketing team have at it... and thus QLED was born.

Yep, another one here... went through two top of the line Samsung LED's 2 years back with horrid uniformity and banding before ditching them and going with an LG OLED.

Even though it's 2k vs 4k and 55" vs 65" it blows the LED's away in picture quality. It probably gets used an average of 5-6 hours a day over the past 2.5 years and not a single burn in issue.

Only fault i can find is to do with motion, though i wouldn't say it's any worse than the Samsung.

Will likely buy a 65" LG OLED when the 2018 versions with the new alpha chipsets hit.

Funny thing is, i never bought GTA or Skyrim solely because they lacked co-op. So as successful as these games are there's still an untapped market out there.

I was interested in Hunt until I watched a couple of video's online and the hit registration, player animations, weapon sounds and combat all seemed a little off.

Which is surprising considering it's Crytek...

Will check back in on it in a few months.

Really enjoyed this game but it needed a little more depth, bigger maps, and harder AI.

News Comments > Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass Details

5. Re: Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass Details Feb 20, 2018, 16:49 Osc8r
 
I enjoy it a lot more PUBG... PUBG is just too slow with too many campers for my liking and the looting & traveling aspect is just too slow and clunky.

Agree on the RNG combat & bloom though. Their first shooting test improved on this aspect but not enough IMO, keen to see what their second shooting test does.

That said, it is a balancing act. If they remove all bloom and make every shot deadly accurate it would ruin the game and encourage passive gameplay & camping even more.

I like the building aspect as it gives you a chance to react, think strategically, and outplay your opponent - it certainly adds a lot of depth. The only thing i don't like about it is that endgame is generally nothing more than people sitting in massive towers taking snipe shots at each other.

Wish they'd stop making overpriced skins and crap though, and also take a break from adding new (mostly useless) items every week. Take some time to chill, fix the bugs, improve combat, and then slowly work on new additions.

Oh, and they really need to stay away from reddit. Talk about a cesspool of fanboys.

Oh, and bring back explosive mode and 50v50 ASAP. These added much needed variety to the game / genre.
