Default Spend 30 dollars on this game so we can play together

Hey so there's this hot new game that's burning up the charts called Player Unknown's Battlegrounds


(game is in early access)

the idea is that at the start of the game 100 players jump out of an airplane and land on a giant island where they shoot each other until only 1 person (or small teams of persons depending on the mode) remain

the combat is mostly about positioning and predicting how players will move thought the game, to prevent camping and speed up rounds there's a neat mechanic where a giant blue energy wall will slowly encircle the play area forcing people to run towards an arbitrary point at the map

I think it's pretty fun, like my first round I landed right next to this dude and chased him for like a hundred feet with a machete until he got in a car and ran me over

the only problem is that there's a lot of downtime so like I want somebody to bullshit with while sneakily traversing a ridge or something, also it seems like it would be really handy to have somebody who can cover you as you run somewhere, and if we get 4 zpers playing we can even form a ZP battlegrounds squad

it's still early access but the bugs don't seem that bad (worst one I got was when I got stuck in a shotgun reloading animation, I had to drop the gun and pick it back up to get it working again)

I've added it to my Steam wishlist. If it goes on sale, I'll take a look.

make impulsive video game decisions with me bud, what's the point of having this hobby if you don't buy something for 30 dollars every now and then

I like the king of the hill concept.

I've had to blow a couple of strangers as of late but I finally had enough cash to buy a machine this weekend
Some other people I know are considering getting this game as well, so if you need a meat shield then I think I could be up for that. Once I can afford it without feeling like an indulgent wastrel, of course

It's ok I guess?

I've only ever played like the first level, but it's a good stupid co-op game that is optomized like garbage

I mean I did buy that game on your suggestion, and then I played it for hours hoping it would turn into something other than "very well produced, but still boring pac-man"

Can't play it on lowest graphics settings.

I've tried it a bit on my roomie's machine though.
This one time I actually saw another player.
