Blur looks blurred too
Only the parts that are supposed to be
I caved and bought Holdfast: Nations at War.
I absolutely love it. It isn’t complicated like Arma, sure, and it isn’t as tactical like Squad, but it can require communication and direction from leaders or it can just be crazy and fun with “trollish” behavior. It is outlandish sometimes. Sure that isn’t what the devs intended, but the community is halfed and each loves the game.
I logged in and immediately saw two servers, one for EU and one for US, that were packed. It was 150 and 150 on each. I waited a moment, saw a player drop and before I could click it another person took it. I ended up waiting thirty minutes for a spot because I didn’t want to join another server with 50-60 people. I wanted the huge scale feel. But there definitely isn’t a player problem!
As for the game itself…very nice! I love the mechanics, and it felt so satisfying to kneel and aim your rifle and shoot a guy over 70.0m or even the rare 90.0m away when that kind of thing is difficult with those weapons. Also…using the cannons, oh boy!
I’ve played only four hours but I absolutely love this game! And of course, I’m always French when I can help it!
(warning; of course, with games come the really bad trolls, as you might see by some of the comments in the screenshots. Two times we had to kick an apparently known problematic person who keeps spamming Hitler speeches. -sigh-)
5/5 game for sure though
Some more Holdfast: Nations at War.
In some of the shots below, I’ve made 100m shots and since then, they’ve become pretty common. The trick is to aim high to accommodate dropping and inaccuracy. Also, get into firing lines and shoot in volleys…though most of the time that is rare because people tend to free wolf it for hilarity’s sake.
They rushed the fort and we were fighting them off with the last of our tickets. It was insane. The commanding officers had volley lines set up, people were screaming, cannon fire and mortars were flying over head, gun shots were blasting by…it was glorious! But in the end, France won! My score was entirely cannon fire (except the last one, when the cannon was destroyed and they charged in, had to bayonet to survive), I was keeping the bulk of the waves at bay from the other objective.
Here I found out there is a first person mode and I am WAY more accurate in it. 17 kills. I ended up with 10 ammo left and needed to move closer.
If only my AMD software worked correctly and recorded stuff. I’d do short videos instead so I could get more environment shots (hard to press the screenshot button in the middle of battle). It looks amazing when it rains or snows!
Instead of spamming you guys with another post (and bumping, as I don’t know how much bumping is allowed, and very little people are taking part here), I’ll make this an edit instead.
More shots as I played more today, it was really fun.
Holdfast: Nations at War
I’m in a Regiment now (don’t know if it’ll last, I have to go through Basic Training and stuff), so my cool, totally legit French name is not entirely the same but oh well, maybe they’ll switch it up a bit in the future.
Noticed a guy getting close after I made this shot and immediately pulled out of view behind the tree. Unfortunately…all you see is bark!
This Stonewall dude legit sounds just like the guy who voices Rick from Rick and Morty (aka Justin Roiland!)
This dude (green clad dead dude) tried to charge and kill me over the wall. It did not work.
They found Foox, but it switched to Oreo and he was right under their noses. They never found him.
I have finally managed to kill everyone and steal everything that’s worth killing and stealing in Darksouls 3. Today I fought and defeated the last 2 bosses and snapped some pretty decent pictures from the first of the two. This is an optional kind of secret boss so spoilers and all that!
Warframe is fun but pretty overwhelming.
And some Kingdom Come: Deliverance. I thought I had more screenshots, but it turned out that MSI Afterburner wasn’t taking screenshots so now I’m hours and hours into the plot and I don’t have any screenshots of it.
This place is very pretty, even on low settings. Such eye candy.
(order is messed up because…LAZY)
When the A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones mod comes out for this game it is going to be beyond epic. The potential of what this game’s mod scene can be is insane guys.
Oh, and that’s not even talking about how impressed I am with this game itself. I am in love with it. The quests are so much fun, the combat is SOOOOOOOO hard, and Sir Radzig is THE man and I’m pretty sure I have a serious crush on him.
I recently bought Fallout 4 myself (no DLC though) and it is insanely hard. Why? I loved New Vegas, one of the best RPGs I ever played, and it was hard but not THIS hard. Everything is instantly killing me. JEBUS.
Order forked because MSI Afterburner be dumb but oh well. -shrugs-
I guess God’s angry. The hell’s wrong with this rain? lol
LATEST; and yes, I have a mod that keeps the spouse (Nate in this case) alive because I couldn’t stand the sadness of it. As soon as I saw him get shot, I NOPED HARD and then got off to get a mod. I ain’t going through the wasteland as a widow looking for my son. Hell naw! t-t
Gonna take a break, can only take so much hurt, and play some Holdfast. Sheesh, way to make me feel whipped Fallout.
I didn’t see a NDA on the beta email, soooo…
I got a beta key for Overkill’s The Walking Dead game. I wanted to see if I would like it, so I’m glad I got one. You get a base (not a different one from other players) and then you do story mode missions (YES! There is story, and story for each character too) to collect resources to build up and maintain your base against hostiles, both human and the undead.
The gun mechanics and whatnot? I personally think they’re really stiff, but I can see it becoming popular with a lot of people, especially Left 4 Dead people. It gets insanely hard to keep up the gates when the Walkers are busting through at all sides. Some of them even run towards you, others spit things at you and some can be damaged so they crawl and grab at your feet to kill you. So yea, it can get intense.
The graphics though…the graphics are insanely beautiful.
*the look of it kind of reminds me The Last of Us though, to be honest. lol
Seems I will have to keep an eye on it… maybe.
The game is Overkill’s first to use Unreal Engine 4, though I believe it ran on DieselXL originally. I’m fairly certain that it switched recently, and it’s come a long way from E3.
Overall, the mechanics feel right at home for anyone who enjoyed Payday, and I sure wish stealth was this good in PD2. I was pretty impressed by my playtime.
Also, you’re right @Rhyagelle, there was no NDA on the email. There’s no NDA at all.
Squad v12 beta. It’s amazing! I can’t wait until it is public. Persistent ammo, medic is better, everyone can use bandages on downed friendlies, there are TANKS (yes, epic tanks lol), the sounds are crisp and amazing, the performance is really good (once you clear cache), the new UI is great…everything about it is awesome! Hope it does well and people start to flow in!
And some Realms of Magic, which I’ve had a blast with so far! I really hope the devs don’t abandon it. It could be the new Terraria, and if they open up and really support the modding community, it could become absolutely insane.
Realms of Magic
As you can see the map works a lot like the map system in my favorite little dwarf game “Region of Ruins”. I was so surprised to see it! I’m in love with it! <33
also it is a little out of order. when you see the armor upgrade with the hat, I suddenly got jumped by bandits wanting to butcher me and do something with my bones (don’t recall what, it was night). I barely made it out of there alive but managed to kill one and quickly loot him. lol
Some Fallout 76 beta shots. Game runs like hot garbage no matter the settings you pick, so much stuttering and freezing, but beyond that not sure what I think of it. Seems like an empty MMO so far, but that could be because its early beta and they locked a majority of the stuff to full release.
(and yes, you can see ALL players on your map)
And some more Squad shots I took the other day.
not much but i don’t usually think to take screenshot xD
Recently bought Dark Souls III on Chrono, which evidently also was my first purchase on here. Anyway, when i arrived at the second pictures location, i literally made a stereotypical anime gasp. So far, for every dank corridor or catacomb, there always is a almost painterly view of a new zone around another corner.
Probably as i further progress i’ll get more screenshots here.
Wow, you’ve already gotten yourself to Irithyll?
You’ve progressed through the game real fast, if you only bought it a couple of days ago, and haven’t told us anything about your experiences thus far! If you’d like, please go tell your story over at:
20 hours doesn’t seem like it’s that quick. Starting off with next to no knowledge of Dark Souls III, except Cemetery of Ash, random clips 'n screenshots and a pretty hilarious clip from Super Best Friends.(cough skeleton ball) I usually never express my feelings/talk about games with people, me and words, just don’t get along. But sure, i’ll try.
2018 50go games that look like a 1990 game
also this is not a low res statue… this is my actual character…
sry but then u need to check yr graphics settings, the game looks way better than this even on streams, and it is known that a lot of visual quality is lost when streaming
I don’t think it’s fair to upload a screenshot of the game on the lowest settings (I can only assume) and then pretend that that is what the game looks like
see for yourself:
It’s an Xbox X screenshot. no quality setting… this is what you get if you play on console
