Drawn to Death Release date 4/4/17

Based on what I've seen so far I'm not convinced that I will even like this game.

I will check it out and give it a chance, it seems more than just a shooter.

I'll keep an open mind to this game but I'm not sold on it yet.

I doubt what is being released is much different than the beta/"private access" that had been available, so I already pretty much played through it, but I'll play a few rounds, look for some TMA peeps to play with, but I already know I'm not a fan. I bet the game will have messed up server issues too. The game had never been tested with a lot of players online before. For real, I don't think they ever had that server with more than 20-30 people. That server is going to crap out and Sony San Diego will be too busy with MLB The Show 17 to do much to help, just like how TMX's server was super crappy and Sony Santa Monica was unable to do much about it. I have a feeling this DtD launch will be as bad as TMX, the community will dwindle after a month or two, they will have to cancel DLC if it's not successful, and then Jaffe will beg Sony to let him do another game that he will take another 4 years to work on.

Sadly, that makes perfect sense.
Now the server was shit to me and I couldn't play with any of you guys, my hopes are that it's at least slightly better now since their excuse had something to do with EU release of the beta.

I really hope it'll work out, though. Will be able to see familiar faces again.

I take it you only played Unranked mode so far? Because Unranked is far more tolerable because the rules are simpler (kills-only scoring). It's Ranked mode that fucking sucks. The game tries too hard to be a competitive game, sucks the fun out of the experience, and the end result is an unbalanced game  that isn't fun for too long even if you can get past the ugly graphics & terrible writing/poor humor. There is some limited enjoyment though I suppose.
You can add me on my alt-PSN account (BlackfieldAsylum) if you want, maybe we can start up a DTD session.

I play both rank and unranked. I really only have massive issues when Im an Idiot. Which is 35% of the time.

It's being savaged in a lot of its reviews, both critical and commentary by real players.

I genuinely feel bad for the guy and his team who I'm sure worked real hard on it.

What stands out to me is, from what I've read (as I bought it on PS Plus in order to throw my free support behind the guy - he does get money from it - but I have no interest in booting it up) he basically doubled down on all of the complaints that we gave the 2012 TMX.

My feeling is the Incog team, and to a lesser extent the ESP team, held him back on some of his worst tendencies.  Now that he owns his team and gets final say, you can see his mark throughout the game.  Openly mean and hostile to the players, overly crass without any clever humor behind it, completely unbalanced characters with a RIDICULOUS degree of health causing the matches to draw out WAY too long . . .

It's sad really.  We complained ages ago.  He wrote us off for it, called us the negative ones, then doubled down on his "wisdom" and now the whole world is calling him out on it.

I think it is safe to say Jaffe didn't let us down and this game bombed harder than those tomahawk missiles in Syria.

All the reviews I've seen so far have trashed it and activity on various forums for the game is lower than it should be. I've seen various complaints of matchmaking/connection issues and crashes. No idea if it is as widespread as TMX. It also seems to be horribly balanced. Apparently a bug that makes you invincible made it to the launch of the game and people think it is hackers LOL. I know there was talk of hackers during the beta, maybe it was this bug?!

Tbh as long as they don't abandon it, it will probably do at least ok money wise. The game does have a cash shop right or did they scrap that? If so people that like and play it a lot will dump money into it. As well as I'm sure they will make changes and improve the game some what.

Still though it is a pretty shitty job for as long as it has been in development. Not to mention how long it has been in beta.

I wonder if Jaffe is still going to keep up his obsession with being edgy after getting trashed for it.

My favorite parts from IGN's review was...

Quote:
"It’s as if developer The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency has taken the kind of in-game chat awfulness that makes so many of us take off our headsets and mute everybody when playing online, and made it part of the game itself."

"All of this is really a massive shame. Despite all its flaws as a shooter there’s some depth and rewarding complexity in Drawn to Death, if you take the time to read between the lines. Unfortunately, it can’t help taking a dump on the page and shoving your face in it every time you try."

Okay, this one, in the words of ages past, wins the internets.  Grin
