Quote from: Kailem on Aug 26, 2021, 04:22:21 PMPeer to peer matchmaking is a thing, and I'm pretty sure that's what this game is already using anyway.The first couple of times I tried I didn't get anyone to team up with either, but every time since then it's found random people pretty much immediately. I'm guessing it's just down to release teething troubles, as is the case with a lot of games' matchmaking to start with (unfortunately), and hopefully it'll improve over time.
QuoteSo far I have encountered a bug where the sound cut out at the end of the first mission of the second campaign and I had to do the last fight in almost total silence (twice) which sucked, but that's about the only major problem I've had so far.
QuoteFor various reasons I haven't been staying up as late playing games as I often used to these last several months, but I'm hoping to get back to that a bit more with this game and hopefully be able to get into some full teams with people I can actually talk to and coordinate with, because that's definitely going to be key to finishing these missions on the harder difficulties.
Quote from: StanSwitek on Aug 26, 2021, 02:23:17 PMYep I'm with you VM. Another annoyance is no checkpoints, which helps to make this a game you really can only play in short (controlled) bursts, an hour or so at a time. Because if you get to the final encounter of a mission and die you're going all the way back to the beginning, so I think the hell with it and do something else. There's no restart mission option even, you have to choose to return to base (if you're in a squad and return to base, this could take a long time loading, and sometimes hangs quite a while, because I think it waits until all 3 players are loaded), and then start the mission again from there.
Quoteand as to your question about PS4 being matched with PS5 players, I don't think that happens. No crossplay whatsoever even between generations of the same system. I am pretty sure. So I think its a matter of just not enough players available. Which is a shame. It also doesn't help that there's no filters, as you said. You can't just say, please put me into ANY game, I don't care the difficulty, if there's cards enabled, I just want to play with PEOPLE!
Quote from: judge death on Aug 26, 2021, 04:14:22 PMDont forget either that once the servers are down you can only play this game with the bots, so beating the game wont be possible then on medium settings or higher.
Quote from: Voodoo Magic on Aug 26, 2021, 02:12:26 PMMy second experience last night, my party settings were public, I got into the queue and couldn't find any real players to play with. This is the first week of release and I repeat, I couldn't find anyone to play with. We know there's no crossplay, but is that even mean between generations? Perhaps it works in Private Matches, but if I'm on PS4-Pro, do I not get in the queue with PS5 players? Is that just another filter that minimizes a player pool, along with I assume the campaign level you're selecting, along with the difficulty level you're selecting that narrows your compatible player search? Perhaps. I dunno. No players to find.
Quote from: newbeing on Aug 26, 2021, 07:09:38 PM.The more I play it, the more I get the sense it was suppose to be a significantly bigger game. There are areas that are very large, but are not utilized much, and lots of long hallways that lead to nowhere, which makes me suspect there were probably alternate routes planned at some point or maybe to be added later.Considering the Foxnext sale and the Fox Disney merger it wouldn't be too surprising if that was the case.

The voice acting is as bad as 90s FMV game voice acting. Wow. Some of it is good though. The armory fellow.My biggest gripe as an Aliens fan is no grenade launcher on my pulse rifle and no M240.

The armory fellow.My biggest gripe as an Aliens fan is no grenade launcher on my pulse rifle and no M240.The game says the pulse rifle in the game is the successor, m2 version, less ammo and no grenade launcher for better aim.... But the m1 had good aim and did everything better and had a grenade launcher so this m2 is a big downgrade to me, logicaly it shouldnt even replaced the m1.
