I played through the campaign and did a couple of expeditions, clocked around 20 hours in all. I enjoyed the game as a purely single player experience and think it was worth the asking price.

I make a habit of playing that mission with people playing for the first time and its always funny hearing them kinda go "wait, weren't we supposed to save that guy" and then they just burst out laughing.

Solidly good mission, that.

Every time I'm reminded about Anthem I just get sad. Flying around in Ironman armor was fun as hell, but the release and patching was botched to such a horrible degree that I doubt we'll ever see something of a similar 'genre'.

Square Enix is happy with Outriders, calling it the 'company's next major franchise'

https://twitter.com/Outriders/status/1395047095007170562


quote:

More than that, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios Jon Brooke revealed that the average playtime of players throughout the game was quite impressive.

“With over 3.5 million unique players, average play times of over 30 hours and extremely high engagement for co-operative play, we and the amazing team at People Can Fly are so excited with this initial success,” Brooke shared.

3.4 million are from gamepass.

I definitely wouldn’t have tried the game if it weren’t on gamepass that’s for sure.

An average of 30 hours is probably exactly how long it takes for people to get to the part where they figure out endgame sucks, assuming they can actually login and play. There’s nothing wrong with a 30 hour game, but I feel like a looter shooter’s goal is to become a gigantic time vampire.

that's all I played it for, 40 or so hours, and then I'll come back again when there is some DLC and new content. Have no interest in the gear optimization treadmill.

But I genuinely enjoyed that stupid game, it's story, and it's powers, and will be happy to play more when I don't need to optimize everything as that part's not fun.

Yeah, this seems like a good estimate. Once I hit the expeditions my enjoyment of the game fell off a cliff and I quit. The game was fun enough until then that I was willing to put up with the performance issues and numerous bugs, but the endgame is a soul-sucking endeavour that doesn't seem to have any real rewards of its own.

Also it's now 40% off on Green Man Gaming.

They have some extra story in but if you want to experience everything but the true true end you can just do them all on the lowest tier.

And by some story i mean a little, it isn't much

Is. Anyone running techno builds without the bullet skill? I was having fun on wt 8 with both turrets and tool of destruction, but I hit my accolades on them and switched up to tool, scrapnel, and pain launcher and wow does that suck bad. Had to dump down to wt5 because anytime more than one boss is on screen I am dead in seconds

You can run a near unkillable minigun build with mostly tier 1 mods (basically all the minigun Tool of Destruction ones) one essential tier 2 (Toxic Lead), and with a couple tier 2s for extra damage. Double turrets, make sure you get the class node that makes your melee apply toxic. You want your gear to have anomaly and status power, and you just bust out the minigun and shoot things non-stop. You will over-heal any damage pretty much, and when things get close, punch them before shooting them to refill said minigun. The only downside is you are so slow waddling from place to place. But it is fun!

yeah I had more or less organically built that before I switched away to get the other accolades.

Well, logging in today my character is un-broken. Not exactly the same loot I had before but almost the same, and the character is playable, which is cool. Tried jumping into expedition matchmaking at 9:20pm pacific... came up empty three tries in a row. Playerbase maybe fell off?

I think if the endgame expeditions weren't a time trial deal, the game would had stayed moderately active. With making the end game activity a speed run really kills people playing sub optimally.

It also doesn’t help that every new patch keeps people from enjoying the game.

That Kotaku article doesn't even link one of the better examples of tonedeafness from PCF. It's another post-patch video of someone seemingly being one-shotted but the dev response is that it's not a one shot, because if you do a frame by frame analysis it shows it's actually 2 hits in extremely rapid succession.

I genuinely have no idea what they're playing at. It's just loving bizzare.

The only thing I can think of is some weird dictat from on high stopping them tinkering with balancing in any way.

The fact that Tiago still hasnt rotated is just bonkers.

It makes me very worried for other square games.

I picked this up on sale and it consistently crashes after 20~ minutes of play. Is this a know issue with an easy fix? I tried running DX11 but it doesn't seem to help any. Game seems fun but it's annoying to have to re-do content all the time because of crashes.

It's not you. The game just crashes constantly. "Game seems fun but..." is pretty much the tagline in this thread. Devs are done with it so it kind of is what it is.
