    So, it's finally out! What do you guys think?

    I'm loving it so far. Campaign is cool and the Multiplayer is super fun.

    Preordered Collector's Edition from Bethesda Europe webstore last year, haven't even gotten the e-mail saying it's getting shipped my way yet.
    Something tells me it's gonna take until next weekend till I even hear about it. All the while some lucky few had it mailed to them prematurely due to the outbreak (or Bethesda) messing up shipment schedules.

    I can only refer to second-hand accounts, but from what I know, the biggest lamentable stuff is low max ammocount and how upgrading it makes anminor difference to weapons like the shotgun.

    Truthfully, the ammo count is fairly low but that honestly sort of works to the games benefit - I'm playing on Ultra-Violence and in most encounters you'll be juggling between dealing out damage to the immediate threats and using the chainsaw or flameburst to recover resources on the weaker demons.

    It's fun and prioritises picking your targets and the right weapon for the situation. You hit an Arachnatron? Try and target the turret. Revenant? Blow off the rocket launchers.

    Low ammo count is kind of annoying but you just have to get into the habit of using the chainsaw since it auto recharges one use and refills about half your supply. Most upgrades are going to be minor because they don’t want you to be oneshotting all enemies by the end of the game.

    The gameplay is somehow more frantic (while at the same time providing more depth) than 2016’s, which I didn’t think they could pull off but it’s v fun thus far
    Merged:
    Plus can we agree the pop sound that plays when you get a headshot is the best thing about the game

    It was such a chaotic, frantic ride of pure ultra violence insanity that my mind, towards the end, simply could not keep up with what was happening on-screen

    i was driven only by subconscious desire to rip and tear and somehow survived

    also FUCK MARAUDERS

    I think they did that intentionally so they were never not a challenge to you (given they're sort of your "equal").

    Stupid design decision

    discarded the rarity and thought that goes into spending your crucible and BFG ammo

    No point saving it if you can't even use it on the only enemy you'd want to use it on

    I wan to be challenged, not frustrated by something unfair

    nightmare is fucking actually making me eat shit on so many different levels right now it's not even remotely funny.

    UAC base suddenly whipping out super-heavy demons like it's fucking nothing, but god if it isn't satisfying as fuck to body an entire arena and make it out with that last slither of health.

    No game should have DRM's, especially if the DRM damages your FPS and de-optimizes games. Fuck Denuvo

    On the game I heard is pretty good, can't play it cause my graphic card is shit, but the reviews are great and the music is super great
