    Just because you don't like a genre does not mean others don't, no one is forcing you to buy it, just move along.

    And there's someone dropping a stinky in a thread about a game they have no intention of playing. Who saw it coming?

    I kinda like some of the survival games but I agree with him. Its not about making games we don't like, its every tom dick jackhole jumping on the bandwagon for some quick cash and watering the genre down to extinction, when its just getting started. Just like what we're seeing with the battle royale games.
    The genre isn't really just getting started though is the thing. Survival games have been around for a long time, and I feel like the chance to get big in the survival genre has passed (at least while retaining an audience for longer than 2 months) the Day-Z mod came out in 2013, and there have been a lot of big name Survival games since then (Conan, Day-Z Standalone, Rust, Unturned, Subnautica, 7 Days to Die). The problem at this point, is that the unknown survival games keep coming out looking exactly the same. This I hadn't even heard of until every streamer was all of a sudden playing it yesterday. 

    I'm still running my Conan server, but I've largely stopped playing survival games just because they get boring after you have gotten the equipment and base you want. The only survival game I'm looking forward to at this point is Escape from Tarkov, but even then the payment model doesn't seem that great.

    But ... did you survive? Huh?
    I just got burned out building my temple pyramid that seemed to never end, Also my obsession with capturing slaves, stripping them naked and then stockpiling them in my bedroom was getting weird....

    did play it, but allot of server issues as it seems. Did refund
  • SabracSabrac Member UncommonPosts: 138
    Looks fun but to be safe i'm gonna wait until official release to avoid repeating certain mistake i made in the past of supporting another early access game similar to this one (I'm looking at you DayZ).

    -is- there anything more LOATHSOME then "bro's"?, well maybe hipsters... but it's a real toss-up

    Sorry but I am old school also. And in that regards we are older, thus seen more things. Such as a over supply of garbage survivor games. "Early access" what you young wippersnappers call it today, we called an unfinished pile of **** back in the day.

    I have played almost every survival game out there, 80% are garbage and barely survive a year, Heck we had one company that would just rename their game every 6 months when the population would die off. We have so many unfinished survival games with no direction that are sad to even look at.

    That being said, SCUM is actually on my Steam wish list. But I am really starting to lose patience on "early access" and "survival games" because they truly should never be released in their state. I do hope SCUM is different, I will buy it Friday and check it out. If not, back to Rust, Ark, and/or Exiles.

    Then again if they would actually release a real MMORPG sometime this century, I wouldn't even waste my time on these small server games.

    Why? Because it has server issues on early access launch day? Either that's the case, which is incredibly ridiculous on your part, or you are the type of person that uses refunds as a trial. That's a bit pathetic, but such is the world today I suppose.
  • DAS1337DAS1337 Member UncommonPosts: 2,610
    It's like playing a good version of DayZ. Add the PUBG element into the game world, and some decent crafting. That's pretty much it at EA launch. I'd like to see vehicles and base building/fortifying, which I think they have talked about, and it has the makings of a pretty solid survival game. The map, like past survival games, always seems a little too spaced out though.

    Heh, only ONE early access game I bought and played failed to suck fantastically. So I've stopped jinxing them by paying.

    The initial blurb got me interested in reading this article: "...unprecedented levels of character customization, control and progression, where knowledge and skills are the ultimate weapons..." Hey, I'm not into survival games (tried them, died a lot for all sorts of stupid reasons, got tired of it) but customization, progression, knowledge and skills rather than fancy equipment and fast-twitch reflexes and learning the exact series of things that everybody has to do... sounded intriguing.

    Then I kept reading... "The world’s unquenchable need for entertainment has turned towards bloodlust...rugged, enclosed indoor arenas ... clash in a ruthless war of survival..." Oh, there we go, another dark, depressing game of gory, senseless, kill-or-be-killed.... (sigh)

    Say, here's a novel idea -- how about a GAME that is FUN because people play TOGETHER, TEAM-UP to take a bleak world and make it BETTER, maybe defeating NPC criminals or monsters, and make it so when you defeat the threats in one area, they STAY gone (at least for players/characters who have participated in such defeats), the grass and trees become green and the weather sunny, so not only does your character get more powerful (perhaps by "farming" the same mobs/missions over and over again), you actually make a difference in your experience of the virtual world?

    That sounds like a game I could enjoy playing, even if it had the same old pick-n-click combat, signpost NP "Characters" without the least smidge of AI, "crafting" that is just more killing and putting together pre-set recipes, "fishing," "mining," and other non-combat activities that are little if anything like what they're said to be...
