At first glance, you can easily mistake Outriders as a forgettable looter-shooter RPG. Tread carefully Outrider, there is much more than what the mere demo showed, and you may want to think twice before you knock Enoch.

    It's so brutal, you have to fight with your own system to keep it running as well!

    I had some hopes for this game but isn't that good. The camera work is not great and the raycast auto-lock on bullets from the AI is just stupid. The GOW cover spots always give the fights away and you can't even use the cover because its pointless. Why put it in? I like how they lied about the games as a service, you can't play the game if the servers go down. 

    I got it cheap so not a big deal but pretty disappointed.



    That's not what "Games as a Service" means

    That is exactly what GAAS means. If you need an account and/or must connect to external servers only hosted by the developer, then it is a GAAS game. Service oriented is what GAAS means.

    But, but... obligatory language evolves statement.

    Most people think of GAAS now as online game with cash shop, battle passes, seasons, etc.

    You are correct though, just how I am correct that massively multiplayer must have massive numbers playing concurrently somewhere in the same server of the same world, able to see each other in the world, grouped or not, and interact with each other.

    No, it's not. It's typically games like MMO's and Shooters and drip feed content in order to keep players playing, ontop of having season passes and microtransactions galore. Look at stuff like Division 2 to see how it actually works.

    Yet I have to log into the game server to play just like Warframe, Destiny, Anthem. I guess you can spin it however you want but I sure shouldn't be getting kicked from a server when playing a solo game.




    And it's still not GaaS. Warframes, Destiny and Anthem were released and they continued development on the game since it's an ongoing service, not an actually finished product.

    When you buy Outriders then that's what you get. No store, no microtransactions, no battle passes, no subscriptions need. The game released is the finished product and we don't have to wait 12 months in order to get additional story content or for the developer to finish the game.

    I think that is more akin to always on DRM

    I understand what you're saying, but always on DRM doesn't require you to log into a central server to actually play. Also, many forms of "always on" DRM, like Steam only periodically check and validate the installation.

    From my perspective it's GAAS when you need an account, the studio/publisher can take action on your account, and there is a central hosted server.

    Ongoing content, cash shops, and battle passes aren't prescriptive, common and typical maybe, but not absolutely necessary for GAAS. The person saying so in a previous post is simply trying to split hairs and hand wave away the implications. It looks, smells, and tastes like GAAS to me.

    Watched Angry Joe play this game and he looked like he was falling asleep. He literally stood there emptying full clips into monsters and he did no damage.

    You do know that AJ cherry picks clips for shits and giggles, don't you? It's his schtick.

    If what you want to do is make fun of a game you can pick any game, use selected clips and do it.

    It all depends on class and build. After trying Devastator and hating it I switched to a Technomancer and use rifles as much as possible. I kill all but bosses with a single headshot or a couple hits to the to the body. Also, unlike what many claim, I use Cover all the time since my guy isn't tanky.

    The game isn't for everyone though, and many of the points made in this thread are fair but don't necessarily apply to every player. It's on Gamepass if you have an Xbox, worth a try at least. $60, maybe not.

    What GaaS means has evolved, just like the way cash shops have changed so much, indeed I will now make a new Scot's Law. The more connected you are the more you will pay.

    Overpriced when compared to other, better looter shooters. It's a new game that looks 5 years old.

    The game is a bit too solo and offline to my taste. It looks good and feels good but I need it to be a lot more social.

    Compared to similar genre like Division or Destiny 2...or even Remnant, Outrider manage to get best of both worlds thanks to the world tier system. If you see lots of bullet sponges or you get killed so quick...that mean your setup isn't that good on that tier level.

    If you complain about bullet sponges, then simply tone the difficulty down, and the reward isn't that much of a different between tiers. Yet, if you manage to mow down everything relatively quick on your tier level, most likely you will be able to handle higher difficulty.

    If you are complaining about low level loot, simply unlock higher tier and LEVEL UP your weapon via crafting...how hard can it be?!?!?!?

    Overpriced in comparision with Destiny 2 where even a shitty expac was priced 60 dollars? LOL
