For anybody playing Friday the 13th: The Game, let's duder up and make Oestreicher proud!
My PSN is shagge1771
@twiggy199: They're having server woes right now. Some people are playing just fine (although with unnaturally long waits to get into pub matches), some can't get in period. Really rough launch.
On the bright side, I'm loving the actual game. Janky as all hell, but a ton of fun. Hope they iron things out before the weekend's through.
After a 12-minute wait to get into a lobby, the PS4 version has worked great for me. Again, I agree with the janky as hell gameplay descriptor, but it really feels fun and the majority of folks I've played with are using their mics and location-based comms to make this feel like a real genre movie experience. As a F13 fan, this is totally better than I could have hoped for.
I've played about 10 games in 2 days, I've just got back into overwatch, so I've been killing time with that when the servers are being sluggish.
I'm having a lot of issues with the game, mainly the saving profile data, which every time it does this my screen gets darker and darker making it unplayable. If ichange a characters attributes and save the characters settings it'll do the saving profile data thing and lock the screen. I've figured out that if you change the character attributes whilst in a game lobby you can escape that screen by just pressing on one of the perks then backing out of that screen.
From what I've seen of the game on twitch, the intro into the map where the character dies, thus picking the Jason for that match... all the selected characters that are around the fire are the survivors and the character that dies becomes Jason, yet on my game, the exact same character dies every time even if he's not been selected, the same dude died when I was Jason yet my character was a female.
This game is unplayable In daylight (especially in this summer sun)so they need to add some sort of gamma/brightness setting. The slightest bit of light on the screen wrecks it for me, I can't even see my character half the time.
Oh and the saving profile data Pop up sometimes just stays there whilst in a match, and yeah it covers the mini map, also making it unplayable, I think I've had one decent match since release. I know they're working hard to fix these issues but this is yet another case where the people who were excited, pre ordered or backed the game are basically just the beta testers for a broken game, in future I'm not buying any game within the first 2 weeks of release. It's really infuriating to me that the people who support the games they love the most are the people that get screwed over time and time again. No wonder games are having a longer tail end on sales.
I understand the online issues but the game it's self is busted, don't get me wrong, I love the game, but this is happening far to often.
Rant over. Sorry for any spelling mistakes, I wrote this on my phone.
@twiggy199: I think they replaced the cutscenes with pre-rendered video due to glitches, which is why the same guy gets killed every time now.
But yeah, they've got some heavy patching to do. The game at its core is excellent even with some balance issues (yeah, Jason is supposed to win the majority of matches, and that's a-okay, but a cooldown between teleporting and grabbing would be a big improvement), and I'd be terribly disappointed if these current issues kill the game before it has a chance to build a steady long term playerbase.
I'm really curious to see the QL, if we get one. I can't tell if they'll savage it for its problems or embrace it for all it does right. Hopefully embrace it, as it would make for an excellent Murder Island style feature.
