Which would you rather play?
Pick your poison
At least I can TRY to look good while suffering through bad mechanics.
I had high hopes for LawBreakers bringing back arena shooters but then they changed it to "Character Based" and it kept going further and further downhill. By the time beta came out I couldn't tolerate it and neither could my friends.
Lawbreakers plays a lot better
Russian roulette on 600% difficulty.
Brink is a bad game
LB is a bad game with an obnoxious cunt of a developer pushing his garbage politics into the game
Brink. From what I breifly remember of playing it was fun, shitty performance and a bit of choke point heavy design aside.
Wait a second when did brink go f2p?
Yes, and previous owners get nothing it seems.
I almost bought it years back when they did a free weekend.
Brink is actually a good game, it only needed 1 more year of develpement to fix clearly broken or non functional mechanics
Well fuck me I bought it for 5 bucks
I would rather tgm and fight 20 Goblin Warlords as a Level 999 character with the stats of a Level 1 character on 100 difficult in Oblivion, than play either.
Speak of the devil, new CrowbCat video
FUCK GODDAMN STOP POSTING THIS NIGGER'S VIDEOS FUCK
FUCK YOU EVERY SINGLE FUCKING THREAD WITH THIS BULLSHIT
I WANT TO SHIT ON IT TOO BUT FUCK I'M SICK OF SEEING THIS ASSHOLE
Brink, I actually was expecting a good game when they first announced it, a shame really
Bring obviously. Its at least somewhat fun
tbh if Brink didn't have terrible bugs, lag and a million server issues, it would have been a pretty good game.
Anyway, I would rather play Hawken, but not even 10 people are playing that, such a good game and nobody plays it.
It was actually a decent game- just had bad metadesign on keeping players.

It WAS such a good game, user.
Yes, I'm still hurting.
much rather play this
You weren't playing brink to its fullest unless you were the light body type, fite me.
ahhh the good old days of AlterIWNet…
oh wait no, I felt miserable then and was always getting reported for using the laser rifle that is ACR and aiming preemptively before I turned corners.
for everyone saying 'brink, it was good but not finished', the devs actually survived and made a new game in the same vein which is motoring through development
its good but the latest update is dodgy (new hero is broken) so wait a couple of weeks then come back tbh
I would rather go outside.
Those who know me know what this means.
so what's the game called?
oh yeah, i forgot to say the name of the game, im retarded
yes it is dirty bomb
Yeah this is not a good time to get into the game if you're considering it. Last update fucked up almost every aspect of it
The game was okay, it just died super fucking fast.
Super fun mech combat, almost a big boy game like Mechwarrior.
Rather than adding bigger levels or more competitive game modes the devs add dogshit PVE horde mode babyman trash
Then the microtrans get even more cancerous
Why does it still hurt, though?
I will never forgive them for making Nader a dyke.
505 Games bought it apparently they ported it to consoles and people do play it there, but over on pc it's bad for now. Maybe there will be a revival of it somewhere down the road.
back to /pol
unless you are retarded you are suppose to judge a game based on its quality, not on their dev's (retarded) bahaviour or political opinion.
I'd rather play good games thank you.
I'm so tired of seeing posts like this. If we are talking about CRITICAL ANALYSIS, as in, "Does this game measure up to the objective standard of x?" then yes, it is usually entirely irrelevant who made it. However, when we're judging the VALUE of a PRODUCT or whether or not something should be bought: If you were to disregard who made it you'd be a fucking idiot. If someone sells the most delicious, cheapest ice cream ever and uses every cent of profit that isn't put towards maintaining the business to sodomize your favorite person with a rusty knife, can you really say it's a good idea to buy his ice cream? Is it even a good idea to try it? Is it good to even entertain the idea that it might be good? The value of that ice cream is shit. It's garbage ice cream because it should never be bought. Not because of the quality of the milk or the machines used to make it, but because the profits go towards the worst possible shit you can imagine. The value of a product is extremely complicated, it has to do with a myriad of topics and is deeply personal - stop acting like it's wrong to value some products poorly or well due to the maker, these are goods we're talking about, not arguments (and the genetic fallacy is kind of retarded anyway).
Also; I'd pick Brink but this thread is just an excuse to shit on Lawbreakers.
Your argument is irrelevant anyway. Lawbreakers is shit. It has no redeemable qualities. It does nothing different or special that any other game hasn't already done and done better. It's a dime a dozen first person shitter with an unwarranted and undeserved price tag.
brink has better designs
wow, such righteousness … now let me see your library and let me laugh at your pathetic dishonesty.
I actually liked Brink.
I really did.
I thought the story was neat too, where the goverment had (for once) the good guys and the anarchists were retarded idiots.
I know that feel.
I loved the style and the gameplay but for the entire time i owned the game i was never able to play online.
reasonably fast-paced even when playing as a fatass with a minigun
weapons all felt unique, shotguns were great
I bought it for $15 at goystop 2 months after it released. Still don't regret it.
So did they ever fix the shitty mechanics or what?
The whole point of this thread was to point out that Brink's gone F2P today and not about shitting on Lawbreakers, it's just sad at this point, like Chris-chan.
Dirty Bomb was always semi-P2W in the same way Tribes Ascend was until they reworked the unlocks.
release new thing (Phantom, this new one)
new thing is hideously OP
only way to get new thing is to have grinded in advance or pay money
whales/impatient people get their wallets out
new thing eventually gets nerfed
"see! It's not P2W!"
Also, the loadout card gacha shit is incredible obnoxious and forces you to grind forever if you want a particular playstyle out of a hero.
Unless they changed the card thing, I stopped playing shortly after Phantom came out.
Now you fags like Brink and Dirty Bomb? You retards were shitting up every Dirty Bomb thread. Fucking contrarians
i ll blame it on summer, thank god it's almost over.
Never would i think that i would see someone use the same SJW retarded logic here and be defended by others.
althought not that unthinkable since /pol = right wing tumblr
someone saying BS is the same as physically abusing someone
" If someone sells the most delicious, cheapest ice cream ever and uses every cent of profit that isn't put towards maintaining the business to sodomize your favorite person with a rusty knife"
<i got PTSD from people saying mean things
<someone saying mean thing on the internet should be persecuted in the same way as someone physically aggressing you on the street.
i dont care about what he does, he is a leftist cuck and he said retarded things, so everything he do should be boycotted. (even though it's totally unreleated)
<i dont care about what you do, you are a fking ((privileged))cis white male so everything you do is bad and should be boycotted.
kill yourselves, i know you are trying to fit in, i know you may feel edgy for copy pasting "hitler did nothing wrong" and posting hitler memes. but that wont make you less retarded.
and if by the end of summer you guys are still there, please go back to ((at least)) 4chan. it's better for you.
give her an OP rocket launcher
powerful assault rifle and pistol
the ability to give ammo without having to drop it
How the fuck did they look at that and say 'Yeah that's balanced enough' but how many times they had to nerf Phantom is fucking testament to how they operate.
Should have shown the player counts fam.
You've been shitting up other threads. Leftypol is your place to stay kike.
offended by Hitler memes
I'm an idiot. please laugh at me
4chan, not Cuckchan
Yeah, you're totally fitting in.
Mark put a filter on Re.ddit S.pacing
Codeword for "i'm offended ;_;"
are you a Lawbreakers dev or something
are you triggered that the shittiest letdown of a game from 2011 is coming back from the grave to destroy the lawbreakers playerbase before it even gets off the ground
Brink had a free weekend 6 years ago
boy, time sure flies, I don't even remember playing it
Brink, I never played it but I thought it looked interesting
It looked kind of fake there, but then I went and checked it. Damn, there's quite a lot of people playing this game. I still don't know if those numbers are true and why are they all the same?
because it's literally the most players this game has ever seen, I guess
could be worst
oh its launch day+1 btw,
i hope its because steam isn t the only way to play it, else: It seems that it's normal to see shooter without easy mode (aka where you actually have to aim) having low playerbase.
Who would have though that thoses kind of skill-based shooter wouldn t have 10m player?
Why does nobody play this?
That's not revolution 60.
^CPMA 2014 eddition
What the hell is that thing?!
This came out?
triple-digit all-time peaks
My cousin bought Brink, full price, at release. Time to rub the salt on that wound again
Todd rubs salt in cliffy's wounds by releasing a piece of shit on steam and manages to outsell notakers
Brink. they even released a status update today with step by step instructions on how to create your own dedicated servers. it's not an f2p game. it's the base game for free only with 2 extra maps in the DLC.
Either I don't know how to play or my character is really really slow. Tried playing as a Soldier a couple of matches and the server was filled with people who'd never played an FPS in their life or bots.
Tried changing up the settings because FOV is terrible, the shader at the edges of the screen is terrible and the game gets BLACKED when I try to play a single player challenge.
I actually played this a lot a year ago or so. Had definitely fun with it and unlocking new characters is, compared to other games, not that much of a grind.
At least I can make my own character with Brink
It's mostly just embarrassing to see a 6-year-old game not improve at all. Everything is delayed, as if operating on rubber bands instead of gears and cogs.
Plenty of options on how to play and you definitely need to rely on your teammates or rather convince them to play along. Everyone on my team went soldier with the exception of one guy who went engi and put up a turret is this TF2? no, it's not, it's worse
Guns aren't split up into any groups nor do they indicate what kind of fire-rate one should expect from a gun other than its
clip mag size. And everyone looks like they're some hyper-realistic version of a french cartoon character. I don't know, I always associate tall, stretchy characters with modern french cartoons for some reason.
There is a good game in here somewhere, but it's still an unfinished buggy mess. At least now it's free. I'd rather play this than Cliff "I'm with HER" Bllazaga's latest atrocity. Which is also a damn shame, that's the guy that made Unreal games and Gears of War 2.
the infv gamenight was probably the largest peak ES got
Not probably, it WAS the largest peak it ever had.
14 on release in July 2012
18 in October 2012
17 a couple of times in the next 4 years
and then our gamenight from last month
And everyone looks like they're some hyper-realistic version of a french cartoon character. I don't know, I always associate tall, stretchy characters with modern french cartoons for some reason.
I think it's based on urban/ghetto British culture. It looks fucking horrible.
you definitely need to rely on your teammates or rather convince them to play along
The difference between a coordinated and uncoordinated team is immediately apparent. Last game I played, I was on a team of 50% medics who were not reviving anyone. We were immediately pushed back to spawn and stayed there for the entirety of the game
The largest peak since it was released on Steam, yeah, but ES has been around a lot longer than that, and it used to be more popular.
And sometimes the game will decide to spaz out and do this.
urban/ghetto British culture
I got more of a Johannesburg kind of vibe here
The game's engine is impressively bad. I honestly don't know how they managed to make a game so terrible.
Well it is the Doom 3 engine.
Then it's either a completely different game from a few years ago or you're a fucking turbo tard lying out of your ass. They took a decently put together game and infected it with P2W ass cancer to the point where it caused serious balance issues. This post is far more on point.
Dang, that is pretty good. Any other songs in the OST that are decent?
triggered ? really?
Back when i played phantom was already nerfed into oblivion. And i didn´t play with the new merc they have released a while ago.
Goddamn man just goddamn.
This game wasn't designed with deus ex rocket launcher in mind.
Even though the devs are probably completely different ET was also a fucking mess of this scale. It desperately needs another ETPRO server mod to fix all the fucking shitty serverside networking issues.
Honestly, Lawbreakers could have been good - it's pretty fun, I really enjoyed playing it during the 'beta', the movement options of some of the classes are very cool (I pretty much only played the jetpack dykes and the assassin), but the game is just fucked up.
The balance is fuckawful, the melee classes are incredible in the right hands and the fatass rocket guy is complete shit - there may have been some actual patches to fix this since launch, but I don't know anything about that.
I can't believe I'm about to ask for loadouts back, but I think that if LB had taken a step back in FPS fads and gone with loadouts instead of the current 'le hero shooter' meme it really could have been better.
I'm willing to look past politics if they aren't blatant, in-your-face bullshit, but having forced diversity like in pretty much every shitty 'hero' game is very offputting, just let players choose their character as a purely aesthetic option.
We can't have 1999 back, so can we at least get 2006?
I remember when people called PUBG a shitty H1Z1 knockoff and said it would be dead after a week
PU's face when his standalone game makes him more dosh than the game he worked on
Oh my fuck i just tried Brink today and it's goddamn horseshit, i played it for 15 mins and i quickly uninstalled that piece of shit.
If we're comparing Notakers here, then it's bound to be even worse
