Hunt: Showdown - General Discussion


#101

About 20 or so really popular ones are allowed to stream today. Us non celebs have to wait until tomorrow :slight_smile:


#102

Let us know when you go live.


#103

@maddcow is streaming now btw :slight_smile:


#104

It was a bad day for me. I’ll have to catch the archive.


#105

Here are a few random clips from people and me.

This is my son’s experience with the new Butcher Boss.

The strength of a well timed earth shattering kaboom.

This is why Audio Cues are important.

My son’s reaction to when I killed someone in the swamps.


#106

I just…couldn’t get into it enough. It was so dark that most of the time you don’t see much going on around you enough to navigate, let alone see enemies. I wonder if it can be adjusted in settings because this would hurt my eyes to try and play at this juncture.


#107

It’s brighter on my screen than my videos show for some reason.


#108

There are also day mode maps. They definitely lack the same atmosphere but eliminate any issues with feeling like you can’t see what’s doing on.


#109

I never had a problem navigating and only got ambushed by submerged enemies shrug


#110

So is it fun?


#111

I think it is but the aiming/ADS system is stupid as shit.


#112

I don’t have a problem with the aiming. It takes a few goes to get used to, but I don’t understand the hatred some people have for it. Dev explanation on why they do it this way seems fair.

@Hillbilly_Deathlord it is fun, as long as you’re ok with a slower pace and, if leading the charge in the game, doing a lot of evasive running rather than fighting. I think that fun will vary quite a lot too. I don’t know if it’s match making bugs but it seems to be the case some people join servers to kill a bunch of AI then leave without ever trying to meet another player or engage with the primary objective.

Those games are extremely anti-climactic. The first time you have one, where you don’t meet another Hunter, you feel like a pro. Then it happens again, and again, and you feel like you are playing on a dead server. Kind of like, but not as bad as (because you can and the game yourself) what flee til 3 felt like for hunters.


#113

Really? Wow…I never figured people would hide underwater! I guess I should have…seeing as how monsters sometimes did that in Evolve, or tried to…


#114

No way, your streams are some of the best quality I’ve seen.


#115

Here is a video where Malk and I go into a night mission with just a knife + medkit.

Here is another one where I show that even with just the starting rifle you can be decent.


#116

Naw I’m talking about the zombie things not sure if players can hide underwater


#117

Some motherfucker tried to kill me so I ran into the trees and waited for him to chase me and I headshotted him with my silenced revolver. Dropped him and then headshotted him on the ground a couple times cause fuck him then another guy took a pot shot at me and I ran away lol


#118

I’ve decided that I think I like playing Solo better than teaming up, at least in terms of getting randoms. Need to practice more getting the strategy right when you have a partner. Solo it’s much more “free”.


#119

Frames are still pretty bad but the dark sight is so much better now.


#120

I’ve been streaming this for the past few days so if anyone wants to come by I’m answering questions and whatnot.
