I know it's a clichéd bandwagon mode by now, but this is the one most have been waiting for. This is the biggie Battle Royale.

Actually I think it perfectly demonstrates how intrusive the sensation of dropped frames can be on the player, however minimal.

Seriously impressive visuals, including a spectacular post processing pipeline. But the frame rate hiccups in 4K mode are a disappointment. I'll wait for a couple of patches in the hope of further optimisation later on. That, or a 1080p locked 30fps mode on the Pro.

Is Star Wars Battlefront 2's big update enough to save it?

AgentDaleCooper

2 weeks ago

@DoucheVader

Eh,what "false information" would that be? The third person combat in these games is really the only practical way to play them unless you don't mind other players constantly getting the drop on you if one elects to instead play the disadvantaged first person mode. Ease of aim is no different between, that's some twaddle you're making up here. No, the actual difference is one of the options allows players to see around fucking corners.

Sure first person is available as an option, if you don't mind playing at a disadvantage.

Another reason I can't muster much interest in this series is its third person view. Multiplayer wise the gameplay is just nowhere near deep enough to support any semblance of competitive third person combat, so why would I want to invest time into its progression system in the first place?

Tbh, the loot crate controversy was water off a duck's back to me, since I was never really getting this game in the first place.

It all looks great, but this time next week there'll still be no random rolls or special weapon slots.

This will be a short-lived novelty band aid that will not address the fundamental problems the game has. It won't bring people back for very long.

The game has been out for a couple of days and as usual the critics are acting like it's the second coming of co-op adventuring. It's like they have learned NOTHING from the wafer thin revelations of Destiny 2.

I guarantee this game will not charm its current players for long if these initial novelties are basically all there really is to do, and with the basic level of mechanical depth the game is clearly designed around.

I of course realise more content will come, but the fact that it's still going to be anchored entirely to the extremely simplistic gameplay loop that is core to the experience means players will soon get bored and move on. A bit like Kinect games, actually.

Looks like they need to sort the movement speeds out in this game. The way players can move backwards the same speed as moving forwards is stupid - charging at someone with a sword in close quarters just sees them backing up and constantly reloading their gun for the killer shot. Even from four foot away you can't close them down, all they need to do is keep holding back and reloading their shot. How stupid.

You seem to have read an awful lot into my post. I was basically just saying I like getting better weapons and armour when I progress in games. Loot with utility.

Cosmetics don't appeal to me (which is more attributable to your loot box analogy actually), I won't really play content just to wear a more shiny jacket afterwards.

I just think the novelty will wear off sooner rather than later when players begin to pine after some good old fashioned gear rewards - one's which make you feel better equipped than you were. There's a bloody good reason why these systems exist and are extremely successful in other games. They are compelling to players who want to invest in the long term.

But we shall see.

The utilisation of this engine is shit in this game, it isn't even a visually impressive game to begin with. DICE's Frostbite targets double the frame rate of this on consoles, all whilst having a shitload of stuff happening all at once in BF4 and BF1. I'd be pissed off I'd bought an Xbox One X to play this, because it just isn't up to scratch like it really ought to be.
