we more or less already decided not getting this game until it's on sale.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicarious_Visions
Devs are known for their console and handheld gaming achievements but close to zero PC work. Bungie is not doing PC work (as far as we can tell). not even Blizzard is touching this (yet it needs B.net to launch)

also no dedicated servers for PC.

and PC release maybe later than consoles.

all in all, smells like Betafront 2 all over again.

think i restart my warframe better.
Well as i mentioned earlier, PC version definitely lose out in terms of exclusive content. So getting it day 1 is meaningless honestly because:

- you don't get everything the PS4 folks are getting anyways, whats the hurry?
- wait and see if got enough ppl playing or not, sekali after 1 month ghost town
- above point: outsourced to other developer to do the port. Historically outsourcing always result in lousy PC ports usually due to external party relatively inexperienced, and it also reflects their mentality: PC version test water only, not a priority. This mentality is also shown by the fact that there is no dedicated servers for PC version

i choose PC for performance sake, not interested on exclusive contents

having said that, PC screw ups is highly anticipated...

saw the thing right after it was over on YouTube. the game's okay but my friends were going apesh*t crazy over it. I'm sure that the version we saw was pc and not ps4 or xbox because in order to appeal to most graphics-fanatics, you have to put your best foot forward. xbox and ps4 are 30fps and at least xbox one isn't 4k

edit: Humble Bundle also offers Destiny 2. so if u want to really stretch your money - subscribe for 1 month, get the 10% discount and use it for Destiny 2 store purchase (i have not tested out but I assume it will work)

Well its mmofps, if the online population not there cause of the lack of exclusive content, 60fps also meaningless.

This game play alone very boring 1 monotonous storytelling zero humor bullet sponge enemies, worse than borderlands, only fun if co-op or pvp.
The gameplay was excellent. The story was incredibly crappy... or rather, it was the storytelling that was it. there are fans over youtube who have spent hours collecting and compiling grimore and narrate it over youtube. the story itself had huge potential but nothing was optimized in d1, except maybe the way they milked their loyal players. peter dinklage, paul mccartney, none was used to their potential.

and yes, i was only there for pvp but their lag compensation is terrible and there are no dedicated servers

Looks good. The 60 fps makes a lot of difference in gameplay as expected, but yeah still concerned about the population. Good news is its out on blizzard app that has a very healthy online population for most of their games, that population can potentially flow into destiny 2 as well. If its on windows 10 store can really go suck it.
