I have a few more spots open, if you haven't gotten a PM from me and are still interested please post a reply to the thread.

I would be interested if there is still room. Thanks for offering this.

If anyone was trying to get one, the site just let me order an AC:NH Switch.


Maybe it will even ship.

Other than raids (and other high-end coordinated fire team activities), headsets are completely optional.


I haven't had a random try to talk to me since the doubles matches in February. (A hilarious guy who was having a rage melt down that we were losing, and it was all my fault (other team was just better). He forgot to go to orbit and completely freaked out that we were on the same team again.)


You'll be fine in the normal matchmaking pools for strikes, gambit, crucible, etc.

I stepped back for a few weeks, and came back for Guardian Games. I think I might try to finish up the gun, then take another break.


The actual "playing the game" bit is still fun - shooting and punching and whatever is satisfying.


Things that are currently bugging me that make me not want to continue:

  • Seasonal content is super grindy and samey.
  • Bunkers took the worst part of the forges play loop and tripled it. (And I like the forges.)
  • Bounties/quests are too specific, requiring conditions not actually stated anywhere or internet searches to figure out what you're doing wrong, or doing something complicated (kills with status grenades, kills with secondary damage, killing large number of enemies in one super).
  • Overload Captains teleporting around like Nightcrawler on cocaine.
  • Too many things requiring fire teams, especially meaningful Pinnacle progression.
  • Everyone using one-hit shotguns in PvP - especially when you need to kill people without weapons to make progress in the Games.
  • Satellite launches are worse than Escalation Protocol - it isn't that people are bad at it, the instances aren't putting enough people on the map to make it possible.
  • Hunters using Shadowshot in Mayhem. They must be a blast at parties.


I have zero interest in Trials (I have to force myself to play normal competitive), but hope they make it fun for those that do at some point. Seems like a mess.

any of you guys play Agents of Mayhem $5.99 for complete sounds good for some goofy mindless fun or nah


Have you played any of the more recent Saint's Row games? If so, how did you like the combat/driving? Because you will do that bit a lot.


Also, how do you feel about enemy bases being mostly a remix of the same 20 set pieces, a la Dragon Age 2? Because you will also experience that a lot.


But, you get to blow a lot of stuff up and play with an assortment of different characters who are not just reskins of each other.


I finished the game. I had fun. It will not make very many top 10 lists, unless it was "Volition games released in 2017".
