News Comments > Borderlands 3's Successful, Buggy Launch

Hm, BL3 makes (great) use of Epic's Unreal Engine, as do many other games. If it ever does release on Steam, will still launch through the EGS launcher.

As far as I'm hearing, you don't even need or want EGS running while playing the game currently, or with any other game? Maybe Fortnite and Dauntless, but otherwise I've seen a few reports of people who, for example, refunded different games (BL3 included) and were still able to play without EGS. Or, closing EGS and the game running even better, oddly enough.

I highly doubt it'd use EGS in addition, as it's not made by Epic. UPlay is the only real launcher I can recall that does the double-launcher garbage, but it's tolerable. They do make their own games though...

Are you having any UI issues on PC?

It does look on the decent side, assuming DRM and performance issues are either mistaken or easily fixed.

I would love to play it, but fuck everything about Epic.

Saw mention of the game using a ridiculous amount of consistent bandwidth while open (around 2mb/s uploading), anyone confirm that got it?

It looks phenomenal!

I found this awesome trailer playing scenes side by side from the TV show to scenes that we've caught from a trailer, but it looks like they're trying to resemble the show in a lot of ways.

News Comments > Gears 5 Released

Great game, extremely polished. I've personally had very few issues outside of server issues, which have been pretty much taken care of. Beautiful, runs amazingly well, has an excellent benchmark built in.

Only thing that sucks is there's not many skins or characters atm, not sure why they held so much back.

Best $2 I've spent in years!

News Comments > Ghost Recon Breakpoint What is Breakpoint? Trailer

5. Re: Ghost Recon Breakpoint What is Breakpoint? Trailer Sep 7, 2019, 05:26 Rhett
 
Yeah, this was a very disappointing test. They usually use this as their flagship "please buy this after trying it!" demo phase, for every game they do this with. Especially The Division, but they did this for Wildlands too, I believe.

This beta is in poor shape, lots of bugs and issues that weren't as big of a problem previously. I'm disappointed, as I was really looking forward to it after the last tech test. :/

Just the fact you can play Gears 5 for one or two dollars, for a month, is pretty awesome. Nevermind the other good stuff.

Now if only the app and the store weren't complete garbage, competing for worst storefront with EGS.

I'm just not sure why anyone's worried. It's everyone's favorite customer-centric developer. There is no big bad EA or Activision behind them. They will do it right, whatever they do.

Indeed, but for "free" (with CC info, but can cancel) it's worth an AC:O playthrough at least. Some good stuff.

Can anyone explain how this game works? I could watch some video but I'd love to hear someones experiences on it.

Right now I'm playing Kenshi and loving it.. this seems like it could be weirdly similar in some ways?

If you've played ARK, it's very similar to ARK. But more polished, and cooler features (like climbing up/on just about anything... scaling cliffs, or jumping off and latching onto them, is just badass.)

Even PVE only, it's quite a bit of fun. But content isn't scaled for solo, should have a small group of people. Not that it isn't possible, I guess.

Yeah, I remember the grind all too well. I couldn't be bothered to get back into that, as much as I would love to see MC, BWL and AQ again. The community sounds wonderful, though.

News Comments > Pagan Online Released

Yeah, it felt pretty okay but there's a lot of systems that just feel really unrewarding. Like loot. Loot doesn't change how your character looks, only skins do. And it didn't feel very powerful.

Too bad, not many WASD ARPGs out there.

News Comments > Ubisoft: Steam Business Model "Unrealistic"

21. Re: Ubisoft: Steam Business Model Aug 28, 2019, 15:36 Rhett
 
It's so stupid to me. They have their own store and launcher... that is already mandatory in all of their games no matter where you buy it, and they're complaining about Steam? Why aren't they just on their own little platform? They're doing nothing but exacerbating the EGS issue.

At least if I buy anything, I'm just gonna go to UPlay anyway. This whole partnership thing though, dumb. I've heard of people having issues with the EGS to UPlay bit of games. One friend had to download a game 3 times just to play it, because UPlay wouldn't recognize it.

I saw it on the UPlay news, but the link button wouldn't work. The link here in the comments did, though.

Awesome! Great game.

I think there were at least two people that dropped out of a recent fortnite tournament due to this thing, too, wasn't there?

Vaguely related, but I was kinda disgusted seeing an ad for a new skin bundle for fortnite on youtube (on roku, adblock all the way!). 60 seconds of one picture showcasing a new paid skin bundle for that garbage. Probably mostly intended for kids.

Not sure why I'm surprised, when Epic keeps lowering the bar every week.

Happy to see a potential sequel, but yeah... No buy if EGS.

Deserts of Kharak came out only 3 years ago eh? Hmm. I figured longer.

I love seeing their massive patches and expansions, wish I could get into the game. Just don't like the economy/always online no mod support/timed seasonal content.

They do put out some really interesting stuff though. Might have to take another stab.

Yeah, I got two boss fights in before I stopped (2 hour timer on Steam, waiting for friends to try it). Solo, it seemed doable, but the amount of enemies definitely feels 2-player-oriented. Not sure if there's even more in coop though.

Fun and polished game, at least.
