PUBG releases on Xbox next week - anyone getting?
Posted: Posted December 5th, 2017
Edited December 5th, 2017 by Vandy

I'll probably get this for Christmas this year (one of the rare times I'll buy a game at release - but it's only $30). Having a mode dedicated for solo play is a big selling point for me. But if anyone wanted to duo or squad that could be fun too. The concept seems really fun. After playing Halo 5 pretty much exclusively as my multiplayer shooting game it will be nice to change things up.

If not - are there any PC master race players that have already been playing it?

Kinda feels like the novelty of it has worn off by now. Didn't mind watching some highlights of it in GiantBomb streams, but the game always looked too buggy for me to actually enjoy playing myself. Will be interesting to see how it performs on console anyway.

Love your avatar btw; best temple

I would love to have time to play PUBG, one of my friends is always posting videos on facebook of his games. I just have so many games still to play and I really want to pick up Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition. I just can't justify getting it right now.

"Love your avatar btw; best temple"

Agreed, the Forest temple was one of the best. I can still remember the music from it.

The forest temple is the most memorable Zelda event for me, maybe even overall gaming moment. It felt like such a big transition from the three prior temples, then going forward in time with the master sword. I would have been eight years old at the time so I was at just the right age for that to be my only concern in life.

If other people were getting it, I could be swayed. I'm terrible at online games, so I wondered if it would be a game I enjoyed. (I have very much enjoyed watching Awful Squad though.)

I'm the same. But with it being elimination and so many players, I don't think winning is necessarily where the fun would come from. I think it's more of a matter of surviving as long as you can. And not being forced to play with a team that will rage on you for making dumb moves is appealing to me.

isn't PUBG technically still in beta?

Posted December 8th, 2017 by Q

Yes - or at least, not final. It was a big topic in GOTY discussions, as some felt a game in beta shouldn't be considered.

Posted December 8th, 2017 by Vandy

Yeah I can see how that could be an issue. The game should be a finished product before it can properly be evaluated for a game of the year.

@Count Dooku: ?

Sorry, I meant to reply to this a long time ago.

I've looked into PUBG, and I'm not sure I'm overly interested in it. One of my friends that I typically play shooter-type games with said it was too buggy for his taste and too random. Didn't really feel like 'skill' came into the equation very much.

I also have the issue of being somewhat unemployed at the moment. I do contract work for my old employer, which keeps my bank balance positive while I hunt for a job, but especially with the holidays I'm not spending much if I can avoid it.

Maybe I'll pick it up someday though.

I just played it for the first time with my brother. I'm having a lot of fun with it. It is buggy, but it's just a few days after launch and it's only in preview so it's to be expected with where it's at. I didn't encounter many bugs - crashed once and there was some lag moments here and there. Strangely enough you can jump back into the game if your character isn't killed after a crash.

I've been interested in the battle royale gameplay since first reading about it. I think it's a really cool concept. There is an interesting balance between avoiding fights and taking out other when you have a good opportunity.

@Fox Forever: ?

Posted December 17th, 2017 by Vandy

I know nothing about this game. Aside from you guys chatting about it here I'd never even heard of it. I was gonna do research but hadn't yet.
