You could do what we suggested to Weiler, buy it full price on Steam, demo it an hour to 90 minutes, and then refund. If you love it, buy it on GMG with the coupon, if not, you will at least know whether you liked it or not. It should usually hook you within an hour or two so you should know. It's not one of those slow burn 15-20 hour tutorial games.
That's a hell of an idea... Wish I had thought of that. Frankly, its the way I sort of think so I'm surprised I didn't... Granted, I don't really ever use the Steam refund option.
Anyhow, tonight... What a complete clusterfuck. I guess my new Sound Blaster Omni sound card has been using its built in mic(s) instead of my headsets mic... Granted, that doesn't explain why it was working and then it cutout... I disabled the in game chat but it still didn't restore discord but he game was set to push to talk so it really shouldn't have effected it and again not sure if it did as I couldn't even get it back to working after gaming without trying a bunch of shit. Right now my headset's mic works when its plugged into the front of my PC or in behind but in the mic spot on my new sound card. No dice. Updated/rolled back firmware, reinstalled software, disable/enable crap to no end... Just no fucking dice.
I found an old mic cable I used for the PS3, cause I used a TB x41 on the PS3 at one time, and now its ran to the back of my PC... So now I guess I have a 80 dollar headset amp. I'll think on rather or not I want to return it... I still want to be able to swap from speakers to headset via device/software without having to pull out my headset mic each time. Also there something to be said about not trying to fix what isn't broken... but we'll see. I'm more than a little annoyed with Creative right now.
PUGB... Holy shit the cluster of all cluster fucks last night... I have no idea whats going on with my keybindings. I had rebound reload to F so I could use my orbweaver but that was like the only binding that wouldn't work. I used the first aid via the orbweaver. I moved my character via it, I looted with it, etc. etc. etc. The only thing I didn't do was reload the weapon. I even tried the normal keyboard, and my mouse which happens to have F mapped to one of its extra buttons. None of them would reload. Anyhow, the way I got my weapons loaded was by plugging my controller back in, hitting the corresponding button, and then going back to the mouse and keyboard. (I'll try it again a little later and see if I can get my weapons to reload the proper way if the controller was never plugged in and if that doesn't work... I'll bind the Orbweaver to the game instead of the other way around. One of those ideas have got to work... Right? if it doesn't work that basically just leaves it that God is telling me to stick with a controller?
As for the game itself... I think its more potential than great right now. I can see why its in early access but I can also see why its fun (and frustrating) to play but, man, it does no hand holding at all. They literally just kick you out of an airplane without even telling you good luck!
Anyhow, the controls fell a little stiff. (granted, that could just be me cause I'm not use to keyboard and mouse) Also aiming down the sights does not come close to aiming from the hip. There is a huge correction to make between the two. (Most games just give you an improved view of what your aiming at while in PUBG you need to aim again cause your not looking at the same thing anymore.... Granted, it could have been the lack of an looted sight that was doing me in.)
So, yeah, I feel I should apologize for sucking (which I knew I would) but since I lived the longest I feel you all should apologize for not carrying me farther.
