News Comments > PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Version 1.0 This Month; New Miramar Trailer

Miramar is also up on the test server. It's a pretty decent map, but it gives me PTSD with how many angles you can be shot from.. especially in dense areas.

Runs way better than Erangel (original map) too.

News Comments > Ubisoft Delays Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a Third Game

First time I've noticed a delay from a big publisher in ages... I remember when delays happened frequently, because the game wasn't up to their standards.

Anyone's guess what this one's about (with ubi's track record), but we can dream!

Say what you will, but it's not been abandoned, and the latest major patches have been pretty big (and good) changes. Albeit very slow.

This one looks to be more middle-eastern feeling, or Mexico desert-esque, I guess. Reminds me of ARMA kinda. Can't wait. Looks really dense with buildings too.

News Comments > Bungie Outlines Destiny 2 Plans
9. Re: Bungie Outlines Destiny 2 Plans Nov 30, 2017, 05:19 Rhett
 
Seems like some good changes in the right direction.

For those on the fence, not gonna lie, the story is ridiculously dumb. It is, however, a good and fun romp with friends, at least for a while. It's sorta like Borderlands without the humor, but has a more serious tone (and much, much better gunplay).

Was hyped for the DLC a week or two ago, but now probably not getting it unless I see some astounding stuff. Supposedly Destiny 1 DLC hit it out of the park (at one point anyway?).

News Comments > EA Still Wants Microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II

I guess they just don't get it... If they were listening, there wouldn't be microtransaction gouging in the first place.

Doesn't matter though, because as I understand, the game still has major lag/rubberbanding issues since beta, the campaign is a short piece of garbage that makes no sense, and the saber combat looks and feels so damn tacky.

Will the demo come with all the XP manipulation of the full game?

Pretty sure that was entirely disabled to be reworked.

It's uniquely better than Borderlands mechanically and gameplay-wise (because it takes shooting much more seriously), but it's more dumbed down than D1. I think they're looking to fix that though. I don't think it's keeping a playerbase like they wanted.

Yep, Proxy. I guess we'll see, but really, it's like ever since Space Marine, GWs has been avoiding bigger studios...

Okay, this looks and sounds awesome. Surely there's a solid developer behi- ... Oh, they've done one game on Steam and it's a 4x with mediocre reviews, that looks like a Beyond Earth clone...

God damnit, Games Workshop. What is it with them giving the IP to random developers?

good list of deals, looks like Amazon will have some pretty good deals on recent games, Destiny 2 is $27 but I'm not sure it's worth it for just the single player.

Cool, thankya!

Destiny 2 is okay. If you haven't tried Destiny at all, but you love shooters and you love games like Borderlands and Diablo, it's worth trying. I just hope they work to improve the game.

News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of War Expansion & Patch
2. Re: Middle-earth: Shadow of War Expansion & Patch Nov 21, 2017, 20:57 Rhett
 
I'm sure it is pretty similar, but I don't recall the orcs being nearly as notable or crazy in the first game. It has a fair share of tedium, but it's a cool story with well-voiced characters, and it's very fluid. A good option if you want to play AssCreed without supporting the garbage that is Ubisoft.

Though this DLC being $15 is just stupid and not worth it from what I can tell. I could see half that at most. The free updates are quite nice, however. I really enjoyed the game, myself. I actually *cough* tried it *cough* and was dead-set against buying it (due to that one DLC with the dead producer and the inclusion of loot boxes potentially swaying gameplay), but I saw that the loot box fiasco was WAY out of proportion and they can be 100% ignored, safely.

Hell, even if you do spend money on them, it's not even worth it for what you get in those boxes.

Game does get tedious at the end, but only because of how the Shadow Wars work, and the "true ending". One of the more fun things to do was defending your fort from the AI, and after a certain point in the game that stops happening (until this update), so that's cool.

Yeah... It's so despicably sad that gaming has been turned into a money-milking machine, and true love and dedication rarely gets poured into games anymore.

I also highly recommend DOS 2. It has a wide variety of mods on the Steam workshop as well, not that it needs them.

Best played in co-op, but I did about half my playtime in solo no problem.

Disney was probably quite happy until people caught on.

Hoping for some Lando/Darth Vader quoting here soon though. "This deal is getting worse all the time!"

Yeah, I know. I just meant that not only have they not touched it since launch, they've nerfed rewards from it at least twice now. It's barely even worth the time of playing (to get in-game currency which can be used primarily to unlock new operators).
