I guess I don't hate evolve I did get to play it for free. I can kinda appreciate that they didn't just want to make another left4dead when there are already so many zombie games but..... I'd rather have that than this

I didn't hate it until I spent forever downloading it on cardboard internet and then spent 2 hours trying to play a game with 3 friends that wouldn't let us queue up with a 5th (it forces you to use a pubbie for the monster).

Hate is a strong word though. Hmm.

I, frankly, want this smug Jagen to be my avatar on all forms of social media immediately.

It was awful? That sorta blows. I loved Monster Hunter, and getting to be the big loving tiger-dinosaur instead of the guy ineffectually prodding the big loving tiger dinosaur with a giant corncob sounded like a cool idea for a game.

If they fix a bunch of poo poo real fast it could be worth 30. Like, some of this stuff shouldn't be that hard to fix unless they just have their heads up their asses.

You're right none of that seems to work. But that's how the game is supposed to flow. The only balance between monster and hunters seems that one can kill the other easily at some point in the game without a middle ground. It seems like it wouldn't work even on paper.

well tahts my issue, idk how someone didnt think about this for long enough to sort even the base concept out

You could have a 1v4 game where you alternate between 4 black dudes beating a cop and 4 cops beating a black dude and it would sell like crazy

i didnt even play this but make the monster attack humans bases and steal poo poo to level up. ping the humans' map when it attacks so they can respond. hell maybe even let em upgrade poo poo about the bases.

blammo now the monster has to take risks and think about where/when/how long he attacks. the humans have to decide do they spread out so there's somebody to cover everywhere or wolfpack and respond to attacks.

woops i thought of a better game in 5 minutes

Every gameplay video of this I saw was four people jumping and chasing one guy and killing him within like 10-15 minutes while he had basically zero chance of doing enough damage to drop a hunter into last stand, but if he managed it one of the hunters buddies would just pick him back up immediately so they can keep dominating the monster, and also the hunters had a big sci-fi-magic shield that the monster can't escape from.

They don't let you play with 4 buddies to try and have fun fighting each other? Who thought that was a good idea

I don't care if it was a closed NDA thing, the first alpha required everyone to mute their sound because you had 4 people constantly echoing all game audio through permanently open mics till it just generated screeching.

Good luck to turtle rock in their attempt to pull a fast one on console gamers.

Lol. But I'm also reporting you to the developers.

doesn't seem too hard to fix evolve, if the game wasnt about to come out or whatever.

just make it 4v2, and give the monsters a reason to attack the hunters early and give hunters something to do early if the monster doesnt attack.

I think basically the way to fix it is to turn it into NS2 except the monster upgrades rather than builds stuff

The way to fix it is to play left 4 dead 2 versus with a bunch of buddies instead of handing over 60 bucks for this turd.

i think you level up and unlock stuff like in cod but i forget, that is probably the reason even tho they could just have friend matches not give xp or whatever

natural selection 1 (and 2 to a.. dependingly lesser extent) managed to do it just fine, and that was a free mod. NS1 was my favorite multipalyer game ever. but it had equal teams which is pretty much the way to go since cat v. mice tends to be a boring pushover shitfest if theres a noob in the cat spot, or tends to be a complete no-chance rape if the cat is good.

Naw, everyone was garbage at the game in beta. By the end, I was going up against some really well organized 4 man groups that could kill monsters even at stage 3.

The problem was that most players only had the default hunters while the second tier were better for team comp. Also, there are a lot of minor things players can do or notice while playing to catch monsters that just run away. If the monster just runs, and you have any of the t2 hunters, the monster gonna get hosed since t2 hunters have better tracking and trapping.


The game had poo poo loading issues, so I can't fault people for being bad cuz you would get in like 3 matches in 2 hours.
