    76 is getting way more hate than it deserves. Is it Fallout 5, no. But it's definitely fun.
  • I think its the whole multiplayer thing. I know I didn't get it because of that
  • I am just waiting for them to add private servers... I think it looks fun, but I don't want to play with anyone I don't know.

    Literally I've run into a hand full of people in the 20+ hours I've been playing. The map is so big, it's just not common.

    Add to that the anti-griefing stuff in place and it's just not an issue.
  • its not the people that the issue, its the inability to pause the game.
  • People in this game generally aren’t that much of an issue. If you get attacked but don’t want to fight, just don’t hit back and they really can’t hurt you much. This is also the first Bethesda game I haven’t tried to stored everything ever. Private space is limited, so you can have containers people can break into, so its interesting deciding what to carry and far more strategic.

    Its different, but I’m really enjoying it compared to other games of this type.

    Enemies aren’t bullet sponges.

    Crafted items require very reasonable components.

    Enemy swarms are legitimately terrifying, the most I’ve ever seen on screen for a game like this.

    There is a lot to like and some that annoys me. But this weekend alone I spent all day going on insane adventures that felt way more organic and interesting that a mmrpg usually does. It truly is random and spontaneous which I hated in games like Destiny or the Division where the same enemies are always in the same places. Just walking off your campsite can turn into a life or death struggle where you pissed off the mirelurks and then the goddamn ghouls seize the opportunity too...
  • Swarms of enemies are indeed terrifying in FO76, partially because aiming is so difficult. Yeah, you can't pause the game, because after all it is a synchronized multiplayer experience, right? But also the game engine just isn't up to the task [it is outdated? it was built to optimize that kind of game play? all that and more?]. This jankiness adds and extra layer of challenge / terror to every encounter. On purpose? Whatever. It "works" for me.

    It's just another example of how combat in Destiny stands out as so impressive. Smooth and accurate, or as accurate and your and your controls can make it. The Destiny game itself, it didn't grab me. But there's no denying how well it handled that aspect. Why can't every game do that? Because it's hard! Professionals make it look easy.

    Everything else Witt mentions: "I agree". All the people who gave it a bad review / don't love it: I totally understand their arguments too! As it turns out, I enjoy going through the story as interactions with written / recorded audio material: it's plays like an old-school adventure game. Yeah, the landscape feels abandoned, and lonely: but that seems appropriate. I find it plenty weird dealing with "live" (but still pre-programmed and thus limited) characters in other games, but, yeah, that experience is a bit more dynamic in other FO games than here, just running into robots spitting out a truly limited script.

    My biggest initial concern with the game was that it would be overrun with griefing, but it's not. Hooray.

    tl;dr I rented FO76 for 4 days and liked playing with friends and also enjoyed the creepy lonely experience of playing missions on my own. I figure I'll buy the game, someday, once it gets insultingly cheap, though all my friends will probably have moved on by then. I already have SO MANY barely-played games [anyone remember RDR2?] , I'd feel reckless buying yet another one.
  • has anyone here played marvel vs Capcom infinite, if so how is it? ive been thinking about getting it but the demo doesn't seem to do the game justice.

    I have not played it, but from what I heard watching fighting game youtube stuff, is that the actual game play and mechanics are really good, but the production value and roster choices are not good at all

    I was a huge fan of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, but I could not get into Infinite since most my favorite characters were cut

    yeah, I noticed the roster was smaller, I have a birthday coming up so maybe ill get it as a gift and see how it is. thanks

    Dragonball FighterZ is what most of the old MvC fanbase seems to have drifted towards. Might want to give that a look.

    It's okay. The roster list though was very disappointing (didn't look it up before I bought).

    yeah I looked at that one too, I just had a bad experience with some of the other DBZ fighting games, not sure if this one is improved from the previous versions

    The demo more or less does it justice, it's the weakest entry since MvsCI

    There's some fun to be had from it, but it's too unpolished and lacking for me to reccomend.

    2 is still the gold standard, if you have an itch, 3 is available on modern consoles and much better than Infinitite.
  • i ended up getting my hero one's justice. its actually really good and I am having a lot of fun with it.

    oh boy can't wait
    (quite gory content incoming)



    Judging by that trailer it looks like the story might involve time travel, which would allow for every mk character ever to appear.

    Also Epic's new store is now available, with a free game every 2 weeks for at least the entirety of 2019. Subnautica is free right now and super meat boy will be up after that if anyone wants m
  • Neat! Though I can't get Subnautica yet, it says coming soon ("free from 12/14 - 12/27")
  • jibjqrkljibjqrkl Eventually Perceptive
    my bad, meant that it was gonna be the first one, not the one right now >.<

    Gris was a very pretty game with nice controls.
  • kal_el_0724kal_el_0724 Opening Act
    Currently playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon Let's Go, Civ VI, Mario Party, & Mario+Rabbids all on the Switch. Planning on getting DragonBall FighterZ soon.
  • wh1t3kn1tewh1t3kn1te Opening Act
    finally pitched a perfect game in super mega baseball 2, that was much easier to do in the first game.

    just finished the new one shot demo for resident evil 2, managed to get two of the medallions to get out of the police station. the only thing I was surprised by is there isn't a way to kill the zombies by bashing their head in when they are on the ground like you could in previous RE games.
  • Working on the last four trophies (50 marked in Heroes vs Villians [think I’m close], 150 sentry kills [around halfway], level 50 [level 28], and 500 enemies killed with a hero [have around 300/500]) on Star Wars Battlefront 2 for the platinum.
    They are doing triple xp and level 50 is a really big grind so trying to get as many levels as I can. I gave up on this plat around a year ago but I’m too close to give up now (again...).



    Also still playing Odyssey and Red Dead 2 when I feel like Single player.
  • Got a lot of Fighting games to switch between now

    Smash Bros, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Soul Caliber VI, and Blazblue Cross Tag Battle. I played a bunch of Smash, and started up on the other 3... but now I have a bunch of season passes I need to buy

    I keep getting bumped from RDR2 online, like at least every 25 minutes, sometimes after just 5 minutes. Eventually I had to give up. The experience seems to vary for everyone; others reported playing for hours at a time without getting disconnected from the server. At the very same time that I was getting kicked repeatedly.

    I'm looking to collect a lot of plants and also identify [and maybe also collect?] as many animals as possible. I put a carcass on my horse, start riding to the nearest butcher, and then I'm disconnected from the server. And everything I just collected disappears. Frustrating.

    Also I'm not allowed to buy a fishing pole until I'm level 13 [I'm currently at level 7] so the one fish I collected was from wading into a stream and shooting it with my revolver. That was one big-ass Muskie [though not big enough to get me the "It was THIS Big!" trophy][maybe only because technically I didn't catch it by "fishing"?]

    EDIT: or maybe this trophy is earned on the single-player version of the game only. Last time I played, I got trigger-happy in town and now I have a big bounty on my head so whenever I get near my camp bounty hunters swarm me and kill me. The bounty doesn't go away. I'd like to think there is an easy solution to this problem, because otherwise my game is over forever, but I don't like to look up gameplay solutions online.

    EDIT2: fine, I looked it up, and now that I read it I remember that someone had told me this but I thought it was too dumb to be true. I'm not sure why they can't just tell you this in-game because it's non-intuitive / it doesn't work that way in real life.
  • I got that fishing trophy using the lure you buy in the fishing store in the swamp. I gave my had a blister reeling in those big fish over and over (I was always one pound short of the trophy).
    My friend just walked up to a larger fish and shot it and it counted for him lol
  • Ace Combat 7 is finally here! I had never been able to play online multiplayer on a flight game, they were always gone when I played them.

    Finally started Spider-Man. Even the tutorial has been awesome.
