but I guess all of the complaints from PUBG devs kind of made people want to check it out more, knowing it was possibly a more polished and less serious take on PUBG.

This is what I did. Figured this one was free and would give a rough idea of PUBG. I'm not convinced though. Fortnite does feel like a mobile game. PUBG needs a free weekend.

Looks really good, but I never cared for the Final Fantasy type combat. May still get it though. The artwork is beautiful.

I also thought Planetside 2 was pretty good for a couple months a few years ago, and to this day I still don't understand the flow of map control or why EVERYONE is battling for THIS station (and sign-in the next day and no one cares about it). I just accepted this futile struggle to represent war, like Nam.

This was one of the reasons I stopped playing. The battles started to get repetitive with the bases constantly flipping back and forth. There didn't seem to be much reason to holding a base. We attacked the other bases because that's where everyone was, not because there was anything at the base worth having.

Itís been in the game for a couple weeks now. Maybe they were doing a staggered rollout, and itís now available for everyone? I still havenít tried it. Itís not what I got the game for.

I could be wrong, but I believe you had to pay to play by purchasing one of the packs. The Battle Royale is/was released for free now. I think. It'd be a lot easier to figure out if they'd put it on Steam. And until they do (and even after), I don't think PUBG has anything to worry about.

Thought about buying this over the weekend, but hesitated in case Epic goes Silicon Knights on them. They're shooting themselves in the foot.

Lastly, even though there are tutorials, the interface in your ship (home base stuff) is fairly unintuitive. As a returning player recently after a long break and a UI redesign, I literally had no fucking idea what I was doing for the first couple of hours... =)

This. The game has a lot of systems. If you don't mind reading forums and wikis, then it's not too bad. Otherwise it's confusing as hell. You'll either miss a chunk of stuff, or have to spend a fair amount of time learning things. And you'll have to grind. If you solo, some of the lower missions may be hard to find a group to help finish it unless the planet pops up in a daily mission. I know I struggled with the "capture and hold these points better than the 500 enemies coming at you". Fun game though. I usually throw cash at it if I get a 75% off coupon.

Between this and all the Overwatch stuff in the Blizzcon bag, makes me wonder how much money the Overwatch gambling is bringing in compared to WoW. There's a new favorite child at Blizzard.

People were super desperate for the 1070s when they discovered they were awesome with Nicehash/ETH and I sold mine for $170 more than I paid. Stock was gone everywhere and even retailers started jacking them up. Ended up getting a 1080ti thanks to desperate buttcoin miners.

Too bad it fell through the floor. At the height I was getting close to $10 a day from my 1080ti. Now it's lucky to hit $3. Oh well. I bought it for gaming. Was doing Nicehash while I read webpages or the room was cold and I needed a heater going.

Was just talking to my boss about Kaspersky today. We use it, and unfortunately whether it's been taken over by the Russian government or not is only part of the problem. If something does come out or happen, and we're still using it, it's a liability to the business. Kinda sucks. Switching vendors is a pain in the arse. And we're locked in to a contract for another 1.5 years, so we'd basically lose that money.

Day 1 purchase... until I read about all the shit going on with it. I can't say I will make it to the first sale, but that's my goal.

War of the Chosen is very buggy for me. I've had animations stop, dead bodies stand up, objectives not complete despite doing them (this one is annoying), and sometimes the camera stops following whomever is moving. It's starting to annoy me.

Neat. Afraid I'm not that clever though. Anyone playing? Is it the same as the first game? I never got close to finishing it. The EA version might be better for me since it's only a few hours long I've read.

I should buy this. I'd probably never play though 'cause I'm a lone wolf (pup).

So sounds like our choices are: A) free credit monitoring for a year or B) get to take part in a class-action lawsuit. Tough choice, since the class-action will most likely get us what, $5 Visa gift card? I should have become a lawyer.

What impressed me the most were the loading times. They went from around 20 seconds on my system to 3. :O

Which is good because of all the reloading I do and.. erm.. I know. I'm ashamed of myself.

Same. The turn extension mod was the only thing that saved it for me. I'll probably wait until the Christmas sale to make sure that the mods are all working properly... Well...that and the fact that I'm in a backlog of titles I'm trying to play at this hot second.

Sounds like this version has an ini file that lets you tweak the turns. Most likely a mod is coming that does it for you (the current top turns mod was broken when I last looked). So not quite as easy as a mod yet, but not hard to change.
