PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS

It's $30 but has amazing potential for fun. Think Hunger Games ish? All the awesome of Battle Royal without the kids?

You can drop into the world as a 1-4 man team. Boarder shrinks until 1 remains.

If a group is down, I'm in.

A Taste here

    For those interested in the game, I enjoy this twitch personality who mains this game:

    It's over the top, but it grows on you and is pretty entertaining after a while.

    Off topic: That persona got that person a CM job on CoD about 6 years ago

    On topic: I am interested, but I really am hesitant because its the same person who did the DayZ mod and ditched, H1Z1 mode... and ditched.... I just, is this gonna get near out of early access and is he gonna ditch again?

    I concur with Kelso. It looks fun and would love to try it out but this and the fact that my luxuries budget is basically nil since I was in the hospital for a few days back in September, so I'll be paying on that for the next 89572409 years.

    Hmmm, I'll probably wait until a sale then. Even then hopefully the hype stays high. Not worth the $30 roll of the dice to me.

    The game isn't even released yet. A "sale" might be a bit into the future :P

    Yup, which is why I hope the hype stays high enough to justify a purchase at that time.

    Such is the way of life in the Steam ecosystem

    The bugs can be downright infuriating at times (doesn't happen too often). The shooting mechanics are perplexing under certain circumstances. If you are prone to "jumpscares", this might be a little overwhelming. Nonetheless, I can't stop playing it. This game was exactly what I was looking for after I quit H1Z1 a year ago. I see a great deal of potential for it as they work out the kinks. It's a super tactical game that requires a great deal of prudence with every move. Like an enormous game of chess, with a bit of luck required. It was well worth my $30.

    Thanks!

    From what I've seen of streams it looks pretty fun, except for some of the shooting mechanics. I also think if get pretty frustrated by a 3rd person shooter rather than an FPS.

    Maybe I'll give it a bit longer to mature before I buy it...

    I think the gun mechs will probably keep from buying the game at any point.

    Shots can occasionally go quite wild based on your point of aim. It's really just a learning curve thing.

    Bug or Feature?

    They are really clunky like really clunky. I know for some people it doesn't matter but when it comes to shooters it's my #1 priority and a non-starter for me.

    When it comes to games (well just shooters) I like my actions to always be repeatable since I think that is a skill and another way I know i can consistently beat someone. I prefer less realism and more just feels good in that regard.

    I purchased the game, but I haven't played it yet. Probably more fun with friends.

  • DontCallMeKelsoDontCallMeKelso The one they call... Kelso San Jose, CA Icrontian

    So I caved and bought it, I'm having fun playing, been doing Solo queue and having fun even when failing miserably. There's not a long wait to get into a game which is nice if you die quick, and once you're in game, you can go forever without killing someone but still have fun.

    I've been streaming when I play - twitch.tv/dontcallmekelso , theres a few VODs of my last plays if anyone wants to see what it's like and watch me suck at the game.

    Overall, I spent $20 of my own money on it ($10 steam wallet from selling shit), and I think $20 might be the sweet spot for $$ to spend on it

    I'm officially having fun with this game, even when losing. But today my friend and I won a duos match.

    Ignore the entire missed clip, focus on the noscope.

    (I knew he was in that set of rooms, heard him moving around)

    Also I died later that round when I accidentally holstered my weapon and tried to punch someone at gun range........

  • MAGICMAGIC Doot Doot Furniture City, Michigan Icrontian

    I've been playing this quite a bit, I like it a lot. I find it to be the most fun in squads with friends tho. Single player can be a little frustrating at times.

  • shwaipshwaip bluffin' with my muffin Icrontian

    Thrilling conclusion after I got killed early in the match...

    This is the highest rank I've made so far. Whenever I break into the top 100 I start getting merked.
