      Damage Per Second - it's basically an overall calculation that includes not only strength but the speed and frequency of your attacks. -Bloodworth

    "The Technomancer heals with long range kills". No, Technomancers heal with any damage inflicted to enemies, kill or not, at any range. If you had played at least the demo before posting this you would know.

    Correction: Your abilities always interrupt a bosses abilities, you don't get penalized for interrupting the boss. BUT if you use the ability just to damage the boss when they aren't trying to to use an ability, THEN they become immune to being interrupted by it the next time you try.

    If you have $60 you know you don't need and you don't really like story parts of games and you don't mind many bugs and huge balancing problems. As long as you don't mind waiting to log in. As long as you don't mind all of your loot disappearing at random times. As long as you don't mind fighting multiple enemies designed for 3 people if you play solo. As long as you like running against a timer. If you like all those things then this game is for you. They got the loot right. Not the drops but the crafting and the loot is well done. Other than that the Gunplay is not that great. This is one of those games that I regret and that's few and far between. And my opinion this game is way worse than Anthem ever was. Not trying to be mean but after three delays and a demo I sure expected the game to be more polished than it was. After playing the demo I was intrigued by the story until I got into the game and the story just takes some turns that don't make any sense and are just plain not good. I'm not saying the studio doesn't have a massive amount of talent because clearly they do. But whoever was making decisions on this game maybe not so much

    The main thing that bothered me about this game is it's item system. Made it hard to navigate and I didn't even know I had a second bag for a sniper I picked up about 30 minutes ago. Also it takes you out of combat longer as it has to "unload" the field for the UI, then "unload" the UI for the field, which is slow and tedious. Boarderlands made it better as you can see through the menu and it loading in field so you can make snap decisions on what you need to quickly do. Here, it's just "Hey check out this wall. You don't know if som'in's sneaking up on ya but what a nice wall~"

    I think it's OK for a game to just last and "be fun" for you for a couple of months or so. I see comments like "this game won't last a year." but honestly, does it really need to? I definitely put in about 40 or so hours into this game as a guilty pleasure over the past week since I've downloaded it and have been loving it. Granted, I got if off Game Pass so my viewpoint is a bit skewed. If I had paid 70 bucks for it, I wouldn't be happy with it at all. Still though - chill. Games don't need to last forever in order to have fun with it.

      @Ryan Ellingson the game is a buggy mess that is their fault still patching out serious issues a month+ after launch. I get ppl are starved out of games to play but a mediocre to midrange game is exactly that no matter if it's the only new thing out.

      پیش 29 روز

      They could've hired companies that specialize in server stress tests and considering the delays these bugs and glitches should have a much higher impact on the final grade. They knew the game wasn't ready and they launched it because Microsoft gave em GamePass money. Still full price on PC and Playstation though, this is not something that should fly in 2021 especially just a few months after Cyberpunk.

    • Patrick Ayotte

      @Easy Allies still feels like you're going way too easy on it for a game that had been delayed by at least 8 months to launch in such a state and with server issues on top. Giving these releases too much of a chance for this is why the industry keeps launching games in a broken state. They need to be held accountable and that should be reflected much more in an honest consumer friendly review. As a game this has a poor story, terrible voice acting and excessively dull and repetitive gameplay, that is a 7. Considering what I mentioned above, weeks after launch, this is what I call going "easy" on a game.

    Demo was a snoozefest, would never bother even trying it for free In the end it's just another bad game where you shoot at bullet sponges until you get a better weapon and shoot at more bullet sponge enemies with more damage. The type of game built for dopamine fried individuals with addictive personality type who need periodic "rewards" to feel like they accomplished something while actually doing nothing at all.

      There was no early access for press, and a bevy of issues to even connect to the game. Reviews take time. When a game is a mess, they take even more time. Everyone has multiple responsibilities to juggle, and Huber got through this review as quickly as he could. In the meantime, we've done multiple streams and discussed it on Frame Trap. If you're upset about not being able to make an educated purchasing decision, then don't purchase a game until you can be educated about it. -Bloodworth

    پیش 29 روز

    Good review, but I'll take the chance to explain why I like the interrupt system the way it is. I heard you guys talking about it on Frame Trap and have been thinking about it ever since. That resistance thing is common in Monster Hunter, too. Monsters become less and less susceptible to flashing, mounting or status effects the more you apply these in a hunt. This is good because it makes everything strategic, you need to pick the right moments to use your tools. You save the flash pods for big nova attacks, your status coatings/ammo for when the monster is enraged, or you stop flying around with the glaive because you've already mounted the monster once or twice and it'll be better to go for another mount at the end of the hunt, when the monster is more dangerous. (Side note: in World the glaive did more damage with ground attacks, so not going for the mount all the time was good pratice anyway). I use interrupts in Outriders pretty much the same way. That first boss you see in the review, for example. I don't really care if he's charging a lightning bolt power, I can dodge that or hide behind cover. However, his shock mines are annoying; they limit where I can move while shooting at him and/or can hit me behind cover, so I saved my interrupts for them. If I could interrupt him every single time, the fight would be a joke. Some interrupt powers have base cooldowns of mere 20 seconds or so even before any buffs or changes to them. It'd be like flashing a monster constantly so it never attacks true in MH.

      @Marcus3run Gaming is an expensive hobby that needs you to take risks to see if you will like something or not. Thats just gaming in general. And in my opinion, player reviews are honestly just getting worse and worse as time goes on. Especially since there are so many people who just ride the train of disliking games or liking games without even playing said games.

    Thanks for the review, guys! I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed with all of the flaws in this game. I was hoping that this could be my new multiplayer fix. The developers seemed so confident when they released the beta/demo. Hopefully, they can fix these issues fast and make this game live up to the hype. I don't need it to be perfect, just good enough to play with friends and not have to deal with constant frustration.
