Now I love Battlefield (mostly BFBC2) and I love Arma 2 and 3, and these two have their own unique play style to them with both of the series focusing on big scale battles, but none of them captured a great war feel in regards to an online multiplayer session. That's where SQUAD comes in and saves the day to satisfy that lust. SQUAD is the next game from those who develop the Project Reality mod for Battlefield 2, and describing its position in popular FPS war games, it sets nicely between Arma and Battlefield where it provides a great balance between the arcade and realistic styles of gameplay. It's visually stunning but it is appealing to look at with the Unreal Engine 4 running it, although the sound design is just lovely. The gameplay on the other hand is what will appeal to a niche group of players. Talking from experiencing it, you'll be thrown into a huge map that's been greatly designed for tactical play, enter a squad and communicating with each other to advance on the battlefield and take control of points. That would be one quad's job to do, while another would survey the area, another would keep going on patrol and on the ready to strike, with another squad being support as a fail-safe if something goes wrong. This would all happen if every squad knows what they're doing and communicating, and that actually happens more so than usual compared to other FPS war games which is kind of nice. Also it's worth mentioning that the shooting part of the gameplay isn't easy regarding long distance shots. It's not as easy like in Battlefield or Arma even with the best of assault weapons. Aside from correct and accurate sniper shooting, tactical advancements and actions are king over quick shots, which again is a great refresher compared to other shooters. If you crave for a realistic first person war shooter but with no complications and a focus on actual tactical/strategical team-work, then give SQUAD a shot as it comes out on Steam Early Access this month in November.
Yes we have a new sister site and some of you probably have seen it already, but we'd like to announce our new sister site: Future Beta Gamer. A fun little gaming focused site that will cover all games that are in development (Prototype, alpha, beta or anything in between). It's a useful site for gamers and game developers to have a site to go to and check up on such games. A select game will be featured everyday, news coverage of game development, and an archive of in-development games for you to check out or to have it as a reference to see what games you want to play. Hope you like what we have. Keep on gaming!
So the coop update is finally out there, and they had problems before doing the update, something about an elevator bug, but on with the thoughts! So for the little time that i played with it with some buds, it's really exciting just to fucking walk through the levels, especially with how the game does it's shadow so damn well, better than any game, and the sounds of the robots starting up and running towards you.. then POW right in the kisser! It's really buggy right now, with massive lag from time to time, but over i had fun playing it and will play more of it, although i hate the fact that you have to join a server in the multiplayer server browser for 'coop' instead of making your own lobby and inviting your friends, but hey it's in early access / alpha / prototype so that's to be kind of expected, but i hope they add lobby making soon. Any of you had the chance to play it yet? if yes share your thoughts! if not then share your thoughts on my thoughts =P
do you guys buy early access games ? is it worth it or not ? do you think that your paying for a game then report many bugs and issues as if your working them ? now I am saying some games are nice to get to play it before release in along time, but you see sometimes early access games you pay ALOT of money to get it most expansive one i'v seen is like 100 USD, now back to the main question do you buy them ? if yes why ? if not why ? do you think its worth it or not ? for myself I do not see it worth it paying for a game that might not get even released in the end and fail, or it might not fix any of the bugs you see or get any updates in the future or not get special stuff when its released or see yourself paying a sum of money then when the game gets released you will see the original price is way less than what you have paid as for the above picture I put because its freakishly funny and got some points to it but mainly because its funny note : the above image with the " ill-mannered " words are not pointed at your or anyone it's just their for the laughs
