    RIP PUBG. The ability to build on the fly makes this game better imo. Tho I will play neither lol

    I dunno it's pretty clear at this point that Epic Games are scum sucking fucks who just want to milk their player base. Their support (or lack thereof) for Fortnite has been abysmal so far.

    I liked Fortnite when it first came out, but it is a bizarre game. it's really hard to classify what it is or what it wants to be. There's some fun stuff in there, but the UI and overall direction of the game is a mess. It's trying to be everything all at once.

    If it had split screen coop I'd buy it, but Battle Royale free is actually fun. I suck at it but I usually spectate to see how I should be playing. I think best I came in was 13 so far.

    Load times suck, though. Nothing's more frustrating than dying within two minutes and having to wait another 3 for another game.

    That's not bad for waiting time, I'm in the unlucky group that sat and waited and then got thrown back into the que to wait again after like 10 minutes.

    Do you play PUBG? Are the load times better there?

    Interesting... the early reviews are not great so far

    Thought about trying it, may have to wait until the game cooks a little longer

    Are you talking Fortnite or the Battle Royale, which is free and standalone?

    I know Fortnite got pretty bad reviews but haven't seen Battle Royale reviews.

    I tried it on my friends average gaming rig and they were average for the most part. Didn't seem overly excessive.

    I like how the makers of PUBG are suing in defense of an idea they did not even pioneer.

    Lol exactly. Leave it to a Korean company to act like they created something when they themselves ripped off another game. They should embrace competition but this makes them look like the uncreative hacks they are. Was thinking about picking up PUBG but not now. Not that my measly 30 bucks matters anyways lol.

    I did not like PUBG at all. Bad optimization/performance for a game not very technically impressive, and you spend 30 minutes running around with nary another player around, build your guy up super carefully, then get one shotted from someone, and you have no killcam or anything to instruct you on what you did wrong. HATED IT.

    I thought Escape from Tarkov was more like DayZ? Do they have a release date for it yet?
