I avoided this game like the plague after it's disastrous launch. It never crossed my mind again until I saw a free weekend on Steam a month or two ago. Checked here, and a few players talked me into giving it a shot. (Darks/Cutter)

It's actually a halfway decent game now after the "Wastelanders" update recently, I'd give it a 79/100.

If you're simply bored or need a Fallout fix you should be able to get your money out of it.

You can tell just from the screenshots that this game suffers from massive consolitus.

I wanted to pick this up when it was first released in EA, however there were videos of people doing ridiculous things like winning battles while severely outnumbered by abusing game mechanics. (walk backwards in a certain pattern while swinging, no enemy could ever hit you)

Are things a little bit more toned now?

Yeah, to bad Tripwire has gone full EGS now though, and Chivalry will only be on EGS (for a year I assume). Sigh, was looking forward to it.

Ditto. Chivalry was one of my favorite games in the last decade, I have slightly over 1,000 hours played.

Since it's going to be an EGS exclusive, I will never play the 2nd.

Theirs an option in the game hitting he space bar will change the graphics from the old vanilla to the new 4K.

Pretty sweet seeing the difference on the fly like that.
The Secrety of Monkey Island remaster has that ability, I'd switch it back and forwardth on every screen for a moment for nostalgia, was a really cool mechanic.

Thanks for recommending Fallout 76 a couple weeks ago, pushing 100 hours played now.

I'm guessing you don't feel the same way when Steam is the only available choice for playing a game?

That's not really an accurate analogy. If a game is only on Steam it isn't because a bribe was paid to keep it off of other platforms.

Saints Row 3 was actually the meh'est of 1-4 (I thought 4 was phenomenal. 2 was fun since I had already played all the GTA's at the time but still wanted something more.)

Whereas most of the time it's the best of the series that gets remastered, maybe they decided to pull a psychological trick and remaster the worst. I mean...it actually kinda makes sense.

These games are terrible multiplayer, as there is no balance whatsoever, almost all of them have one build order/strategy that stomps all others.

That being said, the single player campaigns are a ton of fun.

The folk here convinced me to give the game a try.

Spent an hour and a half meticulously creating my character, then the game crashed when I was taking a picture for an ID card? Log back in and I'm right back to the beginning of character creation, I do NOT feel like doing this over again.

While checking forums to see if this was common (it is) I see that your character name isn't even displayed?

Wow, we are striking out hard here and I haven't even started playing yet.

Edit: Now that I'm actually playing, my first impressions are quite good.

Yeah, it's the Gigabyte RGB software that's the problem that's "weird" not your force-load-on-startup anticheat software... and saying "well, if we can't find a way for them to work together, we'll just disable the game" as a viable option is jank.

Along with other examples such as CoD Warzone's recent requirement of a valid phone # to install, this kind of thing is unfortunately going to become the norm. These companies have tried and failed repeatedly to prevent cheating, to no avail, so pretty soon you'll have to start submitting a blood sample to login.

Not only have these cheaters completely ruined games, now they're forcing companies to infringe on our personal liberties too. $%&! you guys.

I'm not a huge fan of downloading 100 gigs (if you include the patch) and having to sign up for 3rd party services to play a game for a couple days.

However, after 2,000 hours of PUBG followed-up by 750 of CoD/Warzone I need a change of scenery.

Worth trying?

I love it when games that nobody on Earth would come remotely close to saying were "Game of the Year" come out with Game of the Year editions.

Defending a mechanic that even the developers realized was asinine and pulled after 24 hours, lol. You just like to be a contratrian, will argue against any point anyone is making, no matter what that point actually is.

The additional $3000 in the account helps me buy cluster strikes to take out campers on rooftops.
The cash it comes with (ignoring the fact it replaced another cash contract therefore making it a moot point) is not really an argument for keeping a completely unnecessary and un-asked for mechanic in the game that the overwhelming majority for the playerbase immediately called for removing.

The Most Wanted contracts made no sense from the beginning. You already go to the gulag when you die for a chance to come back. Failing that, your squadmates can buy you back in. Then they want to introduce a third way to come back? C'mon, draw the line somewhere. It's no longer "last man standing" at that point, it's "last man to die several times".

I imagine they're lowering the speed of the circle as it's ridiculously fast at this time. I've been caught by it while running in a straight line towards the center at a full sprint.

Sold my Super Nintendo for $50 so I could pick-up X-Com: UFO Defense when it was released, haven't played one since. (bought them on Steam, never got around to playing)

7/10 though? $10? Hmmm...

Both are true: A) The game has a lot of cheaters B) A lot of cheat accusations are false

So I hope their "group suspected cheaters" together statement is a very oversimplified summarization.

I've played Ground War games that ended in 45 seconds because someone was 25-0 calling in a tactical nuke when their entire team was still 0-0. Cheating is often super obvious. However, you'll still receive cheating accusations for going 30-10 in a game that lasted until the end.

A lot of cheaters play in Hardcore mode as well, because it HAS NO Killcams, so if you're relying on the playerbase to detect cheaters you've already failed.
