    The Division 2 : ALL ABOARD THE LIVE SERVICES FAILTRAIN!

    so it's releasing today, but not on steam because Epic decided to bring the console cancer to PC

    reviews don't look too awful and it looks like they learned a lot from the Division.

    so, anybody dived in yet ? i haven't despite hundreds of hours in the last one because fuck launches of games like this, better wait a few days.

    Worth a bash after a week of patches maybe?

    11h in, level 20, solid so far.

    If you like Div1 you will really like this one I think.

    Will report back from endgame because that is what really counts.

    well, if you don't want it i would not mind taking your code...

    its a cover-shooter-loot-skinner-box, but the gameplay system is quite well designed and the loop is fun if you like the sort of thing.

    the story elements where a complete mindfuck, you had silly side missions that where not silly, you had a "HUFF BLUFF SERIOUS SHIT!" main questline that petered out into nothing and so forth.

    but the game was fun, for me anyway.

    It's a piece of shit with a horrible story and boring ass gameplay.

    So nothing has changed from the first.

    No, something has. I lasted for about half a mission in the open beta only, while i did a couple in division 1. Never been so bored with a game in my life.

    Anthem was genuinely about a metric fuckton more entertaining than this clinical slow utterly devoid of any creativity by the numbers shitnugget.

    It's actually been a while since a game has made me genuinely pissed off, and this has successfully achieved that.

    no worries Duck, it's fine.

    i am still trying to work out what is the least shitty way to actually pick up this title, on one hand the epic store is pure fucking cancer, on the other hand the ubi store is like 10% more expensive for some asinine reason and then there's the backing infrastructure the shit is going to run on, ubi's servers are shit, but usually up and nobody knows how long Epic's storefront is actually going to exist if it flops versus steam.

    it's two nasty shit sandwiches and neither of them has bacon mixed in.

    What? Am I not allowed to dislike a game? Fucking hell y'all lose your shit over every second game coming out and call it the worst thing ever over and over and over and keep posting endless videos how things are shit. Get genuinely angry when people are enjoying games and yell at them, complain how friends playing them are idiots etc.

    But Oh no awful isyel doesn't like a game let's collectively REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

    Just fuck you. Genuinely.

    okay, the new rifle category is basically the best thing added so far, please tell me there's a Semi auto M16 in here.

    not a fan of the front hand guard on that one, but if it's semi auto that's good enough for me.

    burst fire was never not bad, both in the game, and in real life, i hope they haven't made too many guns burst fire because the M16A2 is a dissapointment and half tbh, a grey Mk.17 two levels lower is flat out better in every way that matters.

    edit : dodge rolling has i-frames in it, that's new.

    Yes and yes.

    Worth it so far. Hitting 30 in around 1h I guess.


    Think the M16 is the only burst fire i used so far. But only Rifles I tried were a Mk17 and the M1 so canīt say for sure.

    there's a proper design derp in the game i noticed, the side missions are quite well fleshed out and well made, some of them being on par or better than story missions.

    but only the story stuff is replayable.
