Has anyone here really played Blood Bowl 2?  Is it something that would be fun for somebody that is barely interested in real sports and sports games? 

I've toyed with the first one.  It's essentially a football-flavored miniatures table game.

Haven't played , but the common complaint I am hearing is the driving and flying mechanics are still very crappy

I'll still play the beta, but my decision to buy or wait is probably going to be made this weekend
fwiw, I enjoy the driving and motorcycle riding immensely, though I'll reiterate most folks will need to adjust the driving sensitivity down (either kb/mouse, or perhaps controllers have same option) to have a more precise driving experience. Don't use the default settings for driving or you'll just slide all over the road, which is amusing of course. smile

I don't think the game's trying to be a vehicle simulation, and I think a lot of official-forum folks are basically whining that it doesn't handle like, I dunno, Need for Speed? I agree it would be more realistic if vehicles flipped over more realistically (they magically stay upright almost always), or blew up perhaps more quickly from damage, or if you couldn't drive them up and down near vertical inclines. But would being more realistic be any more fun? I dunno.

I do find the aircraft controls frustrating (I simply can't do it on kb/mouse, just nose drive and crash every time). I can pilot the helicopter enough to sloppily get from point A to point B, but don't much enjoy it. My Danish pal Topper seems far more adept at the aerial stuff.

Parachuting is great fun and almost makes the game for me.  icon_smile

I do think Ubi speaks out both sides of its mouth marketing wise. Like the betas are constantly prompting us to buy the full game. And then when people complain in the forums about the game, it's "the beta's just a small part of the game, don't rush to judgement on it." Well, ubi's rushing people to judgement to buy the game, right?  icon_razz $59.99 ain't pocket change, I totally understand wanting to wait and see. I guess I just knee jerk reacted positively to the fun I had in open beta for a few hours.

Generally I've had fun and am eager to play with a full squad, though I've not yet had the courage to join a PUG in this.

P.S. I hope to put some time on PC tonight, maybe 9 pm EST or so.

I'm playing on the PC and my rig (Intel i7 4770K 3.5GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 780 3GB, Win7 64bit Home Premium, 480GB SSD main drive) isn't up to the task of running the game at full prettiness and full performance. The game defaults to High graphics, but that only allows me to pull 30 fps and the game just doesn't feel right at that frame rate. I tried Medium but the fps wasn't changed. I switched to Low graphics (welcome to 2009!) and while it does look a bit ugly, I'm used to that level of graphics (think Fallout 3) and I'm getting a solid 60 fps and the game plays much nicer.

The bad? Driving is sucky, but really, driving is just getting from here to there and after a while you can fast travel anyway. Flying the chopper is tricky, but really it's OK once you put in some time on it. The bad guy AI is pretty sad, but then I wasn't really expecting Far Cry level of opponents anyway.

The good? The friendly AI is pretty decent (I'm playing solo) and they are a help, not a hindrance. Combat feels right and thank goodness we don't have the bullet sponges of The Division. And even in Low graphics it is a pretty amazing map.

Otherwise? Enemy reinforcements have shown up when I'm attacking a location, they are spawning but they do arrive by road which seems logical. They pretty much walk right into a firefight without much subtlety, but they do at least try to spread out a bit and take cover. The collectables are very much like many Ubisoft games (and GTA and many others) but so far at least they have felt like they fit in to the locale.

I'm pretty happy with what I've seen. I'll play some more this weekend but I'm pretty sure I'll be pre-ordering through GMG.

Does no one remember the N64 expansion packs?  It's not like they haven't done this sort of thing before.

Oh boy...   retard  Not that it really surprises me, but to have one at launch that can't even fit on there is just really sad. 

32GB is just such a small drive, it is hard to believe they would choose that, but of course Nintendo has always seemed a bit short-sighted on what other companies might want or require.

My guess is they went small on the internal HD because they used MicroSD cards for the expansion slot. MicroSD is so cheap that they figure everyone will upgrade on their own and get the size that they want. Thus saving Nintendo money by not including a large HD.

They could have really screwed us by including a small internal HD and then using a proprietary expansion memory type like Sony did with the Vita.

Yeah, obviously they did it as a cost saving measure and expect people to upgrade.  But it just doesn't seem right to do that and not even have the space for one game.  And Switch games are only going to get larger as they get more coming from the other consoles and PC.

Think of your average non-techie non-gamer family, which is their target audience.  How sad/upset would they be if they get one of those home on birthday/holiday and then realize that they can't even download the game little Jimmy really wants without going back to the store?

personally speaking I'm also not a fan of the trash people - more specifically in how they speak. Did they all forget how to talk like normal people all of a sudden - or did they just evolve from a cave dwelling sect that no one knew about in Georgia?
I am wondering if it may be an act to get people to think they are stupid.
