BR on PC is fun... until you run into cheaters, which doesn't take very long. Although, I've found I can mostly avoid them by joining matches with PS4 friends.

3-4 months ago i would have agreed with you, but i hardly come across any stripties anymore.

Hell, i just did a quick look and there's very few public hacks that support fortnite now and the ones that do are generally detected anyway.

That's one area they have actually done a pretty good job at, but they really needed to, seeing they are F2P and were infected with them not so long ago.

PUBG could definitely learn a thing or two from Epic in this regard.

That said i'm having a break until they fix their shooting mechanics... the RNG/Bloom drives me nuts.

I also wish they'd bring back the explosive only mode, the regular mode is starting to get a stale with all the campers and base builders which they seems to be encouraging more and more with each patch.

Poor poor Epic, gotta try and sell as many of those $20 skins (in an early access game no less).

Anyone have recommendations for sub-$100 gaming headphones? Thinking about replacing my Razer Kraken 7.1's; the mic button doesn't work anymore, the material that covers the padding has deteriorated, and the software/drivers like to randomly break.

Noise cancellation isn't a big deal, and my onboard sound is decent (Realtek ALC1150), so 3.5mm connectors are viable.

I've been looking at the Steelseries Arctis 5/3s. Along with being great for gaming they're supposedly pretty good with music as well (once you adjust the EQ). One thing I'm curious about though is if you're connecting through 3.5mm is it still using the headset's sound-card? From what I understand, through a convoluted process, you can still configure the headphones if you're using the 3.5mm jack. This makes me think it's still using the headphones' sound card.

Anyways other recommendations are welcome. My current headphones more or less work fine, I'm just annoyed with them for the above stated reasons.

Not a big headphone user, but I bought myself a pair of HyperX cloud gaming 2's (if memory serves) and was really impressed. Check out some reviews and see if they may fit your bill. I used the USB version why bypassed my X-fi.

I'd be avoiding the 3.5 jack with onboard sound.

Still need a AAA dev (not Blizztard) to make a BR game that's designed for PC's only.

I admit to not understanding how PUBG got so popular. Its game-play is generic and offers nothing new. But then again, I am still amazed at the whole find the Pokemon deal.

It's because it's a BR game where you fight to be the last man standing, which to a lot of people is more intense and dynamic than trying to top a scoreboard every 10 minutes.

Not a fan of the PUBG mechanics or slow gameplay though, so I'm sticking to fornite till something better comes along.

Speaking of generic though - that would be overwatch. It feels like bland copy of TF2 with terrible animations and repetitive gameplay (TF2 had heaps of modes, mods and custom maps). But hey... its got the Blizzard name attached.

Agree with Literally - it seems it's used correctly about 1% of the time.

Also 'clutch', you sound like such a try hard dweeb saying it.

I disagree. I think that the Division is MUCH more repetitive than >95% of loot-based action RPGs. Not enough enemy variety, not enough loot variety, not enough gameplay variety. The settings isn't a good excuse for the extreme repetition.

That's another reason we (my friends and I) stopped playing/got bored but we kind of expected it after the betas because of the setting. May not be a good excuse but I'd be willing to overlook that shortcoming if the mechanics were a bit better (too much bullet sponge + insta-death) and especially if the loot system was improved. I realize there's been a ton of patches since I quit and they worked on the system but they made rookie mistakes on what was a gigantic game for them and they lost too many users by the time they got things working.

Yep, same here and for the guys I was playing with. If they had done more to vary the missions, rather than them being exactly the same every time, and done something more interesting than just increasing the health and damage of the enemies at higher levels, then maybe it would have had more staying power.

Until they fix that stuff, it's just a really tedious, boring slog.

Yeah, I played it during the free beta weekend and it got really repetitive. Same AI, same missions, just having to shoot enemies twice as much... which made progression meaningless and weapons feel like pea shooters.

Was going to pick this up over xmas, but still enjoying Fortnite too much (and DOS 2).

Been watching a lot of PUBG videos and it seems very clunky... lots of walking, looting, then bam you are dead (usually by a camper).

Fortnite seems like there's more action/fun... even if its bloom makes fights a little too RNG for my liking.

Seems a lot of streamers have also jumped ship.

Probably will still pick it up one day.

Uhhh...

Console players don't team up against PC players - if they did, console players would get absolutely wrecked even with their aim assist. There's already enough complaints about kb+ms users on console being unfair.

Cheaters were a massive problem about 2 months ago, hardly ever see one now with their introduction of Battle Eye and suing attempts.

Not sure why you guys feel the controls are sluggish on a PC, they feel perfectly fine to me. Only thing I hate is the random bloom when firing certain weapons - but they are working on that as well.

50 v 50 is a nice change of pace but they need separate buses and team colours for a start.

All in all i'm having a lot of fun. Just hope they continue with their frequent updates and introduce a new map soon.
Watch H2O Delirious play it with a console controller and get 20 kills a round, even though hes not a try hard player. I want to see you against him or better players that also use a controller. This whole game is made for console controllers, all the delays, sluggishness and inconsistencies play into the hands of console players and close the gap between m/kb and controller and beyond. You can even detect people hiding due to the aim assist.

If I was a console gamer, I would love this game. But as a PC gamer it just makes me nervous and insecure, because its so inconsistent.

Watch ninja play on a PC and get 30 kills solo in squads, then tell me which one looks like they are playing in slow motion against a bunch of 8 year olds who's only other game to their name is minecraft.

Building quickly is key to winning in this game, and controllers simply can't compete.

I don't find anything clunky about the controls or experience any delay. The only real issue is bloom / rng - which is what makes fights so inconsistent with certain weapons.

That said it's not an e-sport game by any stretch, it's more of a casual take on the BR genre and I think they're doing a pretty good job so far.

-edit- after playing 50 v 50 some more I can't say I'm a big fan. Not enough loot, endless rezzing, and it's pretty much who has the bigger deathball wins.
Ninja is full try hard. And he doesnt do so many kills as you describe consistently. And I dont know how, but Ive never seen such bad players in a game he is facing all the time. Your point is null.
You obviously dont even know the videos I am talking about. People with controller can build very quickly. Ever heard of the XBox elite controller?

Aim assist doesn't work with all weapons (eg snipers) and it doesn't remove bloom - so console users are still at a huge disadvantage even with their artificial assistance.

Like I said, watch a decent PC player then watch a decent console player. It's nite and day.

Point still stands.

And what was your point again? Oh right...

"I think the whole game is made to troll PC players. They even have to play against autoaim console/controller players."

Which is 100% factually incorrect.

That's pretty damn awesome - only having to buy one copy to play co-op.

Looking forward to this game, just hope it's not at interactive cut scene/movie.

Well this is definitely going on my list to check out. Graphically and thematically, that looks amazing.

*crosses fingers for co-op support*

Sure! Let's take a promising atmospheric and dark FPS which would benefit from interesting environmental interactions and effects and fuck it up with co-op support to limit single player possibilities.

I'm in!!!

The presence of co-op does not preclude these possibilities. The fact that some co-op games are lacking in these areas is the fault of the developer, not the concept of co-op itself.

At the very least (given a lazy or unimaginative developer), it could be handled like how Halo did it, where the story, cinematics, interactions, etc behaved as if it were a single player game with only one Master Chief, and the co-op partner is completely ignored.

Games are more fun with a friend. I'm sorry you don't have any friends.

Well said.

Heroes felt pretty underwhelming, as did the shops.

Building system seemed like a few steps backwards.

I'm hoping these were just limited due to Beta.

Interested to see what the Titans are like, and i'll probably buy it anyway as it has coop and Spellforce 1 was awesome (2 not so much).

No amount of adjustments to their lootcrate system can make up for the fact that they made a shallow game that won't hold peoples attention for more than a week or two.

lots of reddit posts about being bored of the game already. By the time they get around to discounting the game in a few weeks multiplayer will be a "waiting for player to join" simulator.

Yep, graphics are awesome, combat feels quite good - but the time to kill is out of whack and the game is just shallow and super repetitive.

Maybe i'm just over scoreboard based FPS games...the last one that held my attention for a decent period of time was battlefield 4. I think i put a whole 5 hours into battlefield 1.

Not sure if battle royale games have ruined it for me or whether recent fps's just aren't my cup of tea.
