The main reason I enjoy it so much is just how good it feels to play. For me that is everything in an FPS. All of the brilliant stuff they have crafted around the side is just an added bonus. If it just doesn't feel awesome to play for you, then I suspect nothing will change your mind.

I have the same feeling about the original console thing. There is definitely no logic to it, but I'd feel weird to not play this on PS4.

As for the game itself, it looks really interesting and I trust From Software enough to make another fantastic game. I know it is very different from Bloodborne/Dark Souls, but I am still getting the same excited feelings as I did before those games came out. I am actually super interested in seeing how they deviate from the formula and revamp the combat/rpg mechanics.

One of the few games I have pre-ordered these days.

I'd love to see a review from Dan. I have never played a DMC game, but they always looked really fun. This might be the one to get me into the series.

@frodobaggins: Not even close, Bangalore passive is easily the best. I like her, but most other characters offer much more than her. She offers a lot between fights, but the rest offers something within them.

Bangalore and bloodhound are easily the top dogs. So, that would automatically at best put her in the middle of the pack.

Going to have to disagree. Lifeline's passive is insane and the main reason you would pick her. Being able to bust out a battery safely in a chaotic battle is paramount.

After a lot of play I think Lifeline might be the strongest character in the game. It seems alot of people enjoy her Ultimate and healing drone, but I think those are fairly weak abilities all things considered (tho the drone can be very nice for the first couple minutes of the game). The quicker healing passive is just ridiculously fucking good to the point that it alone pushes this hero to either first or second best. The extra second you save when popping off shield cells or batteries opens up so many healing opportunities mid fight you would never be confident doing on any other character (unless you had the gold backpack). Also, the safer and faster revives are a nice bonus and can come up huge in many situations.

I have really enjoyed fucking around on pathfinder, but I don't think he is especially strong. Wraith seems very good for solo play just because you can be in and out of danger very quickly, but I also found it fun to use her portal ult to set up flanks for my squad or just to create an easy escape route if needed. I have found Bloodhound to very powerful in chaotic fights just because you can be an x factor when you counter smokes with your ult, but unfortunately his ult seems to give me some slight lag and it can be jarring in the heat of the battle so I have been playing him less and less.

Bangalore seems like a pretty good all around soldier type. Each of her skills and passive are just solid.

I was definitely a bit disappointed when I started doing many of the same exact things in the A run, but I still think it was a worthy addition and I am glad I played thru it.

Of all the BR games this is the first to really click with me. The shooting is absolutely top tier which is essential for me coming from a Counter Strike background.

I feel like they made so many super smart decisions with this game. The jump master and solo launch options, the color coded ammo, the loot tier system is very well done and the various epic upgrades that can dramatically enhance some weapons are super fun. The time to kill is perfect, the knockdown shields and beacon respawns are brilliant, the communication system via pinging and tagging enemies is fantastic, and the various classes are really fun and keep things feeling fresh when you want to switch it up.

To the people complaining about spending so much time looting just to die in your first fight, you really should be jumping into hot areas or even lightly contested spots right by hot areas. First of all it sounds incredibly boring spending 5-10 minutes just looting shit, not to mention it should take 1-2min max for a squad to loot an entire area and be fairly well equipped once you are used to the game.

I notice the the GB staff seems to spend way more time than necessary just looking at the ground trying to figure out if they want to loot something and repeating this ad nauseum until the area is fully looted, even for games they have been playing for a long time. I can't help but wonder if this what many of the people who complain about looting are doing. Pretty much all of the guns in this game are effective, just grab 2 and swap out for some of your favorites if you come across them. It shouldn't take long to spring around get a couple weapon upgrades and some other essentials. It just isn't worth it or fun to spend time analyzing every item on the ground.

Also if you are bad or middling at shooters you are going to improve very slowly if you are not willing to jump into highly contested areas.

As someone who was excited for this game and put in 40 hours the first week it came out it has been very disappointing. I don't think the payment model is bad. I haven't looked much at the progression stuff either. At the end of the day I just didn't want to play it anymore. The game just isn't very satisfying and stopped being fun after the initial excitement wore off. Even in draft mode it felt like all the games would play out very similarly.

Back when I played a lot of hearthstone I felt like their were so many satisfying moments within each game (bar getting rushed down by aggro with a shit hand) and it was exciting building very different types of decks to try out. In Artifact, regardless of the colors you are playing, almost all of the strategy seemed to come down to hero placement and blinking/teleporting in and out of certain lanes at the correct time. You can say that is too simplified a viewpoint, but I don't think it is. That is the biggest factor in every single game no matter what and frankly it is boring af.

Ended up buying Obra Dinn and Exapunks. So far I have played and beat Obra Dinn, but have not touched Exapunks yet. Obra Dinn is a really cool game and I am glad I bought it, but I was slightly disappointed towards the end where I felt like guessing and checking was somewhat mandatory, still a really great game none the less.
