The game looks boring I know they are adding maps but just don't know what to think of the hype which is real now. I can't stand CSGO it's like corner camper flanker paradise it doesn't even come close what Quake from 1996 pulls off.

it's fun because it's hard.. there's already to many boring ass arcade shooters in the genre thanks to crap of duty.

The game is fun, honestly a lot of fun when you have a squad of friends to play with. Not a huge fan of it when playing solo though.

Also I was a huge fan of Quake, using GameSpy to browse for games, playing for as long as my dad would let me. But we will not get that back, that feeling when the FPS genera was evolving.... Gone forever...

yeah I can play about an hour of solo at a time. after that it feels stale. duo or squad games on the other hand I can enjoy for awhile. forget playing with randoms though, thats a nightmare.

Try Warface or Dirty Bomb I bet that same old sinking feeling comes back.

So true! An hour AT BEST.

The way to play is in a 4 player squad with actual RL friends.

Two questions required to answer:

1: Budget?
2: Need a Mic?

I use Sennheisers personally. HD600 (home) and 280 pros (office/mobile).

1: More than I should spend, $300-500 for headphones alone, maybe $600-800 with amp (if needed). Looking to make a sizeable upgrade from my ATH-M50.
2: Already have a mic, not looking for integrated solutions.

Should also say that it's not only for gaming, also movies, shows, music etc... But I do not use speakers since I pretty much game only when wife/kids are sleeping.

Welp stopped by a co-workers house who let me listen to his HD600, HD650, BT990 and BT1990.

Really enjoyed the HD650.

So picked up a Schiit Jotunheim w/ DAC and HD650.

Considering my last headphone purchase was almost 6 years ago I think...

I played this game all weekend. Solo for a lot of it, which I love. When I finally played Duo, it was a much different experience. Holy hell. Much better. I'm definitely going to be playing this for a long time. Hopefully, more improvements and new maps (no rush, this one is huge).

In a few days, we're playing as a squad. Both my kids and my nephew are in on it (waiting for their days off).

I was on the fence on this game. Watching people play, it was just ok. Actually playing it, it's amazing. Kicks major ass.

This game is amazing in solo, EVEN BETTER in DUO's and Squads. Too much fun. They just gotta optimize the hell out of it, but regardless, extremely fun.

The guy who created this game is no longer part of the development team since he struck it rich.

I picked this up a few days ago and have been enjoying it quite a bit. Mostly been playing solo so far, the few squad games I joined were all terrible teams that didn't speak english 80% of the time.

Sent you a friend request, Nekronic is my steamid.

Was interested in this game UNTIL I read the reviews on Steam. Seems like a pretty toxic community, and the risk of getting banned seems to be high as well. Not going to risk the $30 investment. Shame, looks really fun!

I haven't noticed anything toxic, but I turn off the ability to hear players around you. And I think the banned risk is way overblown. It's a good game.

Yea same.. After wanting to play this game for some time now.. Was about to purchase and then the within the first two dozen or so comments were massive complaints about the devs banning people because people streaming the game think others are watching the stream to beat them.. That sounds ridiculous to me!! if I have my facts straight you connect to servers at random so its nearly impossible for people to know whose streaming and whose not, and the likely hood of being able to follow someone server to server is also non existent.. Why ban someone that paid for your product for the streamers sake?? You don't want the minute risk of someone watching your stream, real simple solution.. Don't stream..

yeah pubg voip is pretty trolly and hilarious sometimes.. but i have it turned off since i have no reason to use it in the first place. also agree the the risk of being banned is insanely overblown.. some of the people i play with are toxic as hell in game/all chat voip because they just don't care and it's funny so if the risk was as high as people claim they'd of been banned a long time ago.

I disable voip for all lobbies and solo games. In duo or squad its a 100% must to be tuned back on (ctrl + t) I've gotten the jump on so many people. "hes coming through the door! the door!" as i pop my head through a window cause i know they are staring at the door

Ive also never came across anyone so toxic it sticks out... Only the normal, I fucked your mother last night and china #1 CHINA #1!!!

Game is pretty fun only with a group of friends tho. I don't know how people could enjoy it solo.

so it looks really fun in your opinion but you're not going to buy it because of what other people think in the reviews? are you a sheep? theres no ingame text chat. its the least toxic game I'ver ever played because theres hardly any communication. I never play with randoms and I keep voice chat off. if this game is too toxic then be sure to avoid dota 2, lol. your're not going to get banned either. even if you try to steam snipe the odds are low.

anyway. I'm really digging the graphic changes of the new update, everything looks much better especially shadows.

I often play with randoms in a squad. In ~80% cases squad is playing together and in ~30% of cases aquad actually consist of really great team players. I must say I enjoy playing with randoms in that game though usually I play with my clan.

Ehhh easy to get banned?

If steamspy is correct and there is 11M something players, then we have the 150k banned since game release for cheating, hack g, stream sniping etc....

That's 1% of the playerbase...

IMO you are either doing something wrong to get banned, or harassing someone.

In my experience, it's a lot less toxic compared to GTA V and CSGO MM. I don't really play any other games nowadays.

If you get the game, set audio to only your team.

PUBG is as toxic as you want it to be. I keep audio muted most of the time so I can hear footsteps and such and use Discord to play with friends. I'll turn on in game and pop into the main channel once in a while to spy an area for folks but otherwise keep it muted and enjoy!
