After over a year of Fortnite and several weeks of Black Ops 4 Blackout is there anyone left who cares about an ugly game that they never could get working right on the Xbox???

You have to give some respect to the father of BR, but yes, I agree. This game's engine was always such dogshit that it wasn't ever very fun. BO4 really demonstrated how a game like this should be made.

PUBG reminds me of Day Z. A good concept marred by a completely sluggish engine.

Could it be, because Day-Z, H1Z1 and PUBG all had the same Designer on them?

This is high on the "who cares" category, at this point. It was practically nullified by Fortnite, with only the "I won't play that 3rd-person baby popular shit" crowd, the last hold out. Now, with COD you've got THE definitive version of PUBG.

PUBG is deader than disco. Have fun with the handmedowns PS4.

I really liked the fortnite engine, but I couldn't stand the frenetic pace of base building. There should have been something in the rule-set that said if you build you can't shoot for 5 seconds, and if you shoot you can't build for 5 seconds. As it stands, it's just a childish shitshow of people spamming and throwing up walls a millisecond after they fire.

Ring of Elysium is where its at.
Mobility kits are exactly what the genre needed so they're not just running simulators.

I had more fun in two rounds of Blackout (I think it's called Blackout) than I ever did in any PUBG match. Good solid shooting is so much more satisfying then the dumpster fire that is PUBG. Fortnite I approve of as well although I don't like to play it. I am not into the building, but all the stuff they put into that game is pretty slick.

Hard Pass, drop it to $9.99 and I'll give it a shot.

Paranoia 11-14-2018 05:45 PM

I'll only get it when its "free" on PS+.

H1Z1 still had a little life left on PS/4 thanks to the lack of cross play for Fortnite (everyone playing that played on X-Play compatible platforms) and no PUBG.

This by itself would put the nail in the coffin of H1Z1 but once Fortnite is crossplay on ALL platforms there isn't likely any who will stand up from a pure BR perspective.

I've heard good things about COD's BR mode, and we'll see if Battlefield's twist has any sticki-ness to it but I am not sure they're doing enough or can combat the Free-to-play of Fortnite.

Now if Epic would get off it's ass and fix the Save the World mode I might throw them some more dollars too.

I think Call of Duty will redeem itself with free content. I just saw a post about a Russian version of the Nuketown map coming out to the PS4 soon for free.

I think if they can spam out lots of new content for free that Black Ops 4 will have some legs. Right now, there just isn't much game there for the money unless you just love Battle Royale mode and you are sick of Fortnite.

Blackout bored me to tears. Fortnite repulsed me. Hope BF5's BR mode does the trick, because nothing has been as good as PUBG in its prime. As of now though, I am not interested in playing more PUBG, regardless of the platform. I spent 100sor so hours on it, and I'm good.


COD Blackout is just an arcade PUBG, which isn't attracting. But it's cool to see people get into it. I wish it didn't feel like Pubg 1.5 minus the intrigue to me.

I still don't understand why people want to play these shitty royale games that are nothing more than a massive Elimination deathmatch mode. So boring.

shadow763 11-16-2018 05:38 AM

PUBG is now part of Game Pass on Xbox.

PatrickRes9 11-17-2018 09:28 AM

PUBG is garbage imo. Abysmal level design. Buggy mess. Was unstable as hell for a long time. Muddy, generic visuals. Clunky controls. It just had the royal gimmick going for it, which has since been done better.

HillTribe 11-17-2018 09:41 PM

Haters gonna hate, PUBG brought the genre home for easy consumption. I was begging for true BR matches back in the Quake2 era. The every-man for himself winner take all attitude was always in my zeitgeist and PUBG made it real and(more importantly)popular.


P.S.

The Culling(original) was/is still my favorite BR game.

SpectralThundr 11-17-2018 10:13 PM

BR is just a fancy way of saying deathmatch. Such a joke this genre.
