Never thought I'd see the day in which a freakin Avengers game would launch with 4X less players than an unknown new IP.

You know what? I'M GLAD!!!! I'm not really interested in Outriders but I am happy that it's turning out to be an enjoyable game.

IP is not important as fun factor. I applaud SE for putting out demos for both games. I had fun in the outriders demo so I’m playing it on game pass did not have much fun with avengers, would have played the story if it was on game pass. But it’s clear outriders was a game I was excited to play with friends cuz it was fun. Avengers not very fun.

Online only? I’m out. It could be the best game ever but I’m never spending money on something that I can’t play if my internet goes out or they decide to shut down their servers.

People are saying Outriders has a lot of lag and crashes but it works perfectly fine on ps5. I've been playing since launch with a few friends and not once have we run into loading time or experienced any crashes. I hope they fix it on other platforms because it's really such a gem and crazy fun!!!

I was playing Outriders until I was kicked from the server (again!). This has happened at least 4 times today. Its pissing me off now.

It's still terrible though. Gun play feels bad, cover system is bad, cut scenes are bad, movement is bad, ui is bad, connection during single player is bad, don't even try playing with friends, audio is out of sync, maps are linear like a motor way, inventory disappearing, graphics are bad, shaky camera is bad, the game is bad. Only thing they got right is the loot. But I'm already yawning at that. It's bad.

Not really a fair comparison at the beginning with Star Wars BF2, considering all the monetization methods were removed right before launch and the game made a complete 180 over its lifespan. Dont know why you pulled that out of left field when Anthem would have been a better example.

I mean… No one was acting expecting the avengers game to be good. The iron man games were garbage . The spiderman Games were garbage. Outside of the 2018 game and the spin off. Miles Morales. (The ps3 games for spiderman were bad)
The hulk game was garbage. The Captain America and Thor games were also bad .

And no I'm not saying this because I dislike avengers and marvel. I like them but all the "marvel" games have mostly been shit

It's because it's new, give it time. We will see real numbers soon. I personally didn't like the game, but yea, it is too soon to make this video.

As far as looter shooter geos I'd say Outriders is probably the best we got in a while, but to be honest the bar in the looter shooter genre have been set pretty damn low lately.

Outriders is so popular that the servers don't work half the time. The secret is to play at night when the kids go to sleep

From personal experience, the games janky as hell, random disconnects and constant stuttering. But the fact that the devs actually fucking care is more then enough to tell me it's worth it, a month or so from now and it'll be a much greater game.
God forbid a gaming company actually cares about it's customers, they're only, y'know… THE MAIN SOURCE OF INCOME THEY GET.

I forgot Square do both games.

Of course, they are more like Activision-Blizzard was for Destiny in regards to Outriders

From what I could play I really enjoy a lot but over half my time has been getting dropped off the server constantly. If it’s not fixed soon I’m done and I actually want to play this one.

Marvel's Avengers was so bland and boring I forgot I even had it in my library until now. With that in mind it'll be promptly deleted.

I am so annoyed. I played the beta but got sent out of town for work b where I still am, but went ahead an bought the hands after beta because not only did I enjoy the hell out of the beta I decided its what anthem should have been if anthem didn't have flight. The beta was superior to the anthem release.

Also haven't played avengers and likely won't.

There are two reasons for enforcing the online only thing (as much as I hate it and wish for offline mode it makes sense):-
-First is allows them to do minor alteration and balance changes on the fly server-side without having to do a patch (which is a lengthy process on consoles)
-It makes it harder for cheaters to cheat sense the game is doing things server-side and isn't entirely offline (and cheaters can still ruin games even in co-op games)

One solution would be seperating offline and online characters like some games do, but that I suppose would take some work since the game seems designed to do some stuff server-side.

Marvel's Avengers is the type of game that needs something to reward the players still sticking with it, rather than nerfing the xp grind. You can only get skins with in game currency you buy, which no one will buy since there's no community to share or show it off to. They have some decent skins but the majority are just colour swaps or unnecessary additions. I'm not spending the money I work my ass off to earn on a skin of Kate Bishop in a jacket or one of the thousand Thor skins

Why a single player game needs always online access? I think they want to make this game a live service.

Just curious – does the Outriders demo count in the game’s concurrent players count or is it independent?
