At this rate, Linux may be looking a nice alternative sooner than later.

In case anyone was wondering, Wildlands is a soulless piece of shit. Same shitty formula from Far Cry with outposts combined with the Ubisoft Terrain Generator 2.0. The world feels empty and pointless, much like your generic and repetitive objectives in it.

It is a bad game.

Thanks for the confirmation. My friend had a boner for this for months, it was all he could talk about as the next game he couldn't wait for, pre-ordered it and the whole shebang, but I had zero interest. I figured I would at least try the open beta, which I did, and that confirmed my decision. And now your post reinforced that.

Thanks all for the feedback. I may eventually pick it up on a $4.99 Steam sell.

Cheers!

Blue, my nephew turned in 27 in February. When I asked him if he was going out and get some party started, he said "No. I am too old for this." No kidding. 27... This makes me... uhm... No. This cannot be! I AM NOT... Have I already joined the club of "The Ancient Ones"?!

Blue, it is alright. We are getting older. But up to 60, this should not be a problem. At 70, most people start fading, so we still got some gas left in the tank for a few more years!

And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.
So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
Every year is getting shorter; never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines.
(Pink Floyd - Time)

Too old at 27? Wow, he is old before his time.

That is one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs....it's so well written.

Hey Blue,

Can you see if you can email nin? He didn't set up the ability to email him through his user id. He's been gone for quite a while now...

I contacted him and was relieved to find out he's okay at least... he says he's taking a break, which is hopefully temporary.

Awesome news, thank you Blue for the update.

This game (vanilla) didn't seem to do very well, and doesn't have very favorable reviews: Overall "mixed", which is probably why it is on sale for 75% off ($9.99) right now.

I remember the first one being overhyped and under delivered, but had so much potential. When they announced the sequel, which development seemed to be an eternity, I thought they'd square things up and do well with it. But, it doesn't seem to be the case.

Anyone here give it a whirl? Worth $9.99?

Hhhhhmmmmm....yeah....when was his last post?

2 weeks ago. And no indication that he'd be out for a while. Whatever it was, it was sudden.

Yeah, I hope all is okay. Pray

He's been off Steam for 18 days, too.

Hopefully he is enjoying a really nice vacation and not thinking of us cyber-friends of his. Pray

So is this basically Just Cause 3 with worse controls?

No, how about all your nay Sayers play the game first before bashing the game. You all are talking out of your asses without any play time. Seriously!!

I played the open beta, which is when I formulated 'my' opinion.

I would have seriously considered this game if they would have developed it with the option of 1st person or 3rd person la FO3/FO4 where you can either hit a button or scroll to/from 1st person mode. IMO the snapping into 1st person only when you aim is kina lame.

Oh well....

Exactly why I'm skipping this one, I can't stand this style.

same here - and it doesnt even seem like it would have been much more work for them, since the indoor areas already lack any sort of forethought or optimization in terms of camera effectiveness in 3rd person.. in fact its outright clumsy and inept

id imagine it has more to do with the GTA style they wanted to portray, and the customizeable characters, etc... in other words, mostly arbitrary and decorative or even slavish to being "on trend", rather than coming from the viewpoint of just creating fun gameplay

^^^^^^^^^This exactly. I couldn't have thought/said it better. ;-)
