Looking for a new game to play

Postby Banedon » Feb 6 2019, 14:14

- must be multiplayer, at least cooperative with 3 players (since I want to play with 2 others). More players is even better (since I have more friends).
- can't be very ping dependent, since we're all in different countries.
- if a MOBA, not one of League of Legends, DotA 2, Heroes of Newerth, and Heroes of the Storm (since we've either played or rejected these games already)
- prefer a reasonably-sized community. A dying one with long queue times would probably not hold our attention for very long.
- some of us have a distinct preference for games which don't have daily achievements (since they feel pressured to log on and play).

Any suggestions?

Anthem is going to be released on February 22nd. Take a look at it and see if you find it interesting. Given it's something being really anticipated, even at the beginning might have a good-sized community.

From what I have heard and seen, I would say it's quite opposite.

Payday 2 was really good. I think it still have community and it currently its in its final form with no more ever releasing DLCs and you can buy it for reasonable price. Also it has evolved alot since release with campaign mode and other stuff.

Thanks, I will take a look at Anthem when it's released.

Payday 2 is a FPS! Those unfortunately make me dizzy, and besides I'm terrible at them, so I'll have to pass :D

Reviews for Anthem are not good ...

Why not H3:HotA?

As for community they have Discord server, see our links.

Anthem was released today? Expected ... bug fest, perhaps?

Ah, the "let's release an unfinished game" policy again. :(

There's worse than an unfinished game being released. It's when an unfinished game gets released, but the publisher does have a nice DLC ready only a couple of weeks later.
I'm on Steam and Xbox Live.

If this game becomes another fiasco, like they messed up with Mass Effect Andromeda, I wonder if it wasn't better trying to make MEA a really awesome instead. Now they have 2 games with potential which became messed up because their Publisher sucks.
