What game will we binge, what game is the reason for you staying in your room? so we ask, what is The Shooter Game Everyone Is Playing This Christmas. Could it be Vanguard or Battlefield.
I always play D2 and than when I’m caught up I’ll be playing BF 2042
D2? Diablo? The Division? The second mighty ducks movie?
Destiny 2 obviously.
Lol I'm always up for D2: The Mighty Ducks, what a great film from my childhood. The Iceland hockey team are A holes
I'll be putting time into Infinite. Otherwise, you'll find me on Insurgency, as usual. CoD this year is apparently meh. Not complaining; haven't put time into the series for years. Battlefield just seems like a dying franchise, unfortunately.
They implemented crossplay into PS5, Xbox /sx but neglected to give the consoles kb&m support so it's not a fun experience on console.
I turned of crossplay on day one. It’s a complete nightmare otherwise
How is Insurgency?
I really enjoy it. I mean, the original is king in the tooth, but still has a solid playerbase. Sandstorm improved a number of things, but isn't being updated as much as I would like. They're both well worth playing though. The original can be had for dirt cheap, sandstorm is 15 and under right now because sales.
@ ted Thanks I might check it out. It's been a while since I have played that genre.
I’ve been on here really defending battlefield. I hate to say it, but I think I was wrong. The whole things just messed up. Give it 6 months guys, maybe then it’ll be better, unfortunately I think maybe not. There are so many different problems it’s crazy. I think fundamentally the 128 player just creates a very frustrating experience. Frustration really driven home by the lack of server options, a crazy selection of bugs and strange/bad design choices. I love battlefield in the past but I’m really struggling to find a groove where i can sit and enjoy a session for a few hours. I end up turning it off because I’m losing my mind. Potentially I’m just not skilled enough at the game, I’ve played it for years and years but it might just be me.
Bf2042. Too much fun to be had in that game. An "actual" shooter for grown ups at last
Man. I’m really glad to here someone say that. I’m going to keep trying with it. My wife keeps asking why I’m not playing battlefield because I’ve been waiting for it for years.
It’s halo… already is multiplayer is making a way better impression than either of these 2 games and the campaign comes out weeks before Christmas
Hell Let Loose for me
@poppatron The problem for me is when I turn it off I can't find Portal games.
MP shooters are so boring . I’ll play campaigns sometimes but it’s the same shit as 20 years ago with better graphics both modes
