Played the open beta, but was not convinced.

The setting is nice, the maps are quite good, but:
- Reg is often iffy (possibly due to sometimes wonky unpredictable latency).
- M16s are laser rifles, but AK, M14, etc are weird at range even when using the proper sights and supporting the rifle.
- Bipods and supporting on ledges or sandbags does not always work as expected.
- Parallax is absolute trash you can't properly control or predict in many instances.
- I've had the scopes go blank multiple times, showing a pre-rendered image instead of what I should be seeing.
- I've had the game screen go black on death (helo crash outside game area) and stay black after respawn.
- When you are wounded & bleeding, you will moan and lament for most of the time until bandaged, even while bandaging behind cover. Good luck on the infiltration run you had planned if you're gibbering like a fucking idiot.
- When spawn points change due to changes in game phases, it's not uncommon for enemy players to be stuck inside the new spawning area. Meaning they either die themselves, or spawn kill. The way to go is obviously spawn killing in that situation, but it feels like ass. Especially since that can easily make you the game's "MVP"...

I had a fair bit of fun with it. I've also been wanting this for some time.
You aren't wrong, there are a fair number of issues to be dealt with but overall I had a pretty enjoyable experience.

I didn't experience any issues with the M14 at range, but the AK series rifles definitely suffer. I didn't really use scopes very much but the times I did I had no issues.

>gibbering like an idiot
God damn, this. I've, on numerous occasions, been sneaking up the Gill map with my squad as myself and other squadmates' characters all yell shit like "come out charlie!" or "Man I hate VC" or some such nonsense. It is derpy and annoying.

Your complaints about the spawns are completely valid.

The helicopters are fun to fly when they are flyable. I had a few instances of this "stutter glitch" where the heli is made nearly unflyable due to the view and being very laggy. This most often results is serious issues determining your closing rate. It's like flying a helicopter without hydraulics while having a seizure.

But aside from that, I noticed a big difference between controlling the helicopters offline and online. Online the controls seem much more sensitive but I can't determine if it's just me feeling this way.

Overall I had a good time I really look forward to playing more of it. Especially if I can play with some good dudes. When a team actually commits to using teamwork in this game they wreck house.

And this is a decent outcome for a Kickstarter / early access game. Which is why I don't.

I don't even preorder big budget games. I wait till it's out, see what the interenets says about it, then buy or not. (Which was a good call on Mass Erect.)

The answer to the picture's question is: Console plebs.

Fallout 4 is by far my favorite. I put a good amount of hours into Tactics. Like 70 hours into FO3. 81 into New Vegas. 524 into FO4 and still going.

I really love Fallout 4. 1) Rampaging. 2) Mods. 3) Settlements.

I've got a whole stack of newer games I've been ignoring to play more Fallout 4.

I have problems with Fallout 4, though not settlement building like many (beyond it being too limited), but yeah I'd say its my favorite of the Fallouts. I love New Vegas but its limited by Fallout 3's combat system and Vegas itself being disappointing mostly (though it finally gave players a place to fuck around in a business suit without looking like a idiot).

Fallout 4 looks pretty damn good even on my i5 system, the combat is smooth as butter, and the companion system is FAR superior to Fallout 3 plus the companions are better themselves.

My complaints really were lack of weapons, DLC being halfway garbage, and the patented Bethesda problem of your character being the leader of every fucking thing but nothing to show for it really and not able to do anything with it.

I've now put 83 more hours in Fallout 4 then Skyrim (which I put in 804 hours) and while that doesn't come anywhere close to the insane 1613 hours I've put in New Vegas (really shows how much of a social life I have) I can truthfully say other then playing some mods like Project Brazil and The Frontier I've put all the time into NV that I want to. I feel the same way about 3, have very little intention of playing it again, atleast not for a long, long while.

Fallout 4 I haven't even came close to burning through and know the best mods haven't came out.

I do hope Obsidian comes out with another Fallout game. Beth makes them good and Obsidian makes them even better. I just wish they'd collab, Obsidian does good writing but didn't make the best environment while Beth makes stunning fun to explore environments but doesn't have the best writing. Obsidian sticks to the west while Beth sticks to the east.

They need to meet in the middle and make Fallout Detroit. If for nothing else then all the jokes about how a post apocalyptic Detroit looks better and has less crime then IRL Detroit.

Hey man, that's like your opinion, man.

No one is forcing you to buy these games. Just please don't support companies which buy up franchises just to rape everything it stands for.

Thanks. ;)

>Fallout has always been silly from the get go, the very setting with futuristic 50s tech is silly.

That's not silly, that's retrofuturistic?

>Sure Fallout 1 was nowhere near as silly as future games but it had its moments.

>That's not silly, that's retrofuturistic?

Retrofuturistic, which is silly. Though thats not a bad thing by a lot. I in particular love 80s style retrofuture. Music practically ripped from the actions movies of the decade like done by Power Glove and Carpenter Brut, cheesy shows like Moonbeam City and Kung Fury, and one of my favorite video games ever set in the future year of 2007, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. But all the neon lights and electronic music is silly as fuck but thats one of the things that makes its awesome.

Just the same Fallout with its 50s inspired aesthetic mixed with what the 50s that the future would look like, advanced robots and mainframe computers running detailed simulations and human like AIs with vacuum tubes, nuclear everything, space exploration, and good old fashioned Cold War paranoia. Its so fucking unique and awesome.

>There's some slapstick, but the most of it is nihilistic, dark, and ironic. Most of the slapstick moments were actively induced by the player though. Needing extremely high LCK , or incredibly low INT.

It was still there, still part of the game. Even in later Beth titles most of the really silly stuff is confined to certain moments, you can play the games completely seriously (as I do, maybe too seriously in the case of New Vegas, I go a bit wacky hunting Legion). I've played Fallout 4 completely seriously, full immersion with no breaking of suspension.......until the game crashes. Wouldn't be a Bethesda game without crashes.

I do think they need to do more for low INT characters, not have someone dumber then a short bus supermutant become leader of the Institute or be able to hack computers.

>Then why should people care about your complaints?

I never said anyone should, but I'd appreciate it?

>Think about the trials others face before you speak of your own.

You're kinda missing the point. I don't care about the games mentioned and I'm not perpetuating the trend which you're commenting on by simply not buying the game mentioned, so what exactly am I doing wrong?

>Most of the NMA seem to be old school gamers, even tabletop gamers, not really down with fast paced action.

I was a hardcore Counterstrike player. Is that a fast paced first person shooter enough?

It's not about us not being down with fast paced action, it's about making the game into something it was never intended to be? Make an offshoot, sure. No problem. But making it a sequel and tell us the old way is dead? Well fuck you.

Since X-Com games were rather popular around here, here's something similar but different:

Not sure I like the character design but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt since I largely liked the recent X-Com gameplay.

Agreed. Better with the "open world" bit than The Division, though, what with the vast acre-age of unusable/un-enterable skyscrapers.
>> No. 58965 ID: f0fb5d
I got Wildlands and I've beaten it with 100% in each area of the cartel. I found it somewhat repetitive but in the same way that I found some of the old MMOs I played repetitive. I enjoyed the stealth, sniper tactics, found myself yelling at my AI controlled teammates for not fighting more aggressively when I fucked up those tactics and laughed at a whole hell of a lot of glitches. I do not play multiplayer because I can't be getting my ass handed to me or deal in tactics with teenagers or preteens who enjoy some of the same things I enjoy.

Overall, I enjoyed it. I don't think I'll invest in any of the DLC though. My experience and satisfaction with the story is complete.

I just went 55-0 with the attack plane. The next round I went fighter and shot down 12 planes, got reported for cheating, and cussed out by 3 people.

  Has anybody heard of this game? A buddy invited me to the Alpha today (opens tommorrow). It's a 3rd person multiplayer hack-n-slash between knights, vikings, and weebs, with stance-based duels. High attacks need to be defended by high blocks, same with left and right.

Looks a bit like (a worse version of) Dark Souls' PVP fucked a MOBA when the MOBA's husband TF2 was away. Sounds weird, might be good, still can't really tell. I'll record myself playing when the alpha opens and post on here.

Imho, I see it more of like if Mortal Kombat and Diablo had an illegitimate love child. I play Raider and he's not super great at duel or brawls. Actually he's widely considered to be the worst class. I'm in the top 4% of people who play him tho. I prefer Dominion personally.

Yeah, they need dedicated servers. I can't tell you how many matches I get disconnected from.

Also, I'm rep 5 now and have top armor class.
