The Daily Grind: Have you played Guns of Icarus?

    
31

Every so often I check in with Guns of Icarus, a slick little multiplayer shooter featuring steampunk airships and tactical crew-based combat. Indie outfit Muse Games has been working on a PvE mode for a while, but it’s not out yet and so I typically tend to play Guns of Icarus casually for a week or two before drifting off to other titles.

I always come back, though, because steampunk airships.

What about you, MOP readers? Have you tried Guns of Icarus? If so, did you like it?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

I have played GoI, and it can be a blast. As many people are already saying, it is not a solo-friendly experience. But with friends in multiples of four and a VOIP server, it’s a lot of fun.

Why yes, I have. 
Guns of Icarus is best played with enough friends to crew a boat together with voice chat.
It
takes a bit to get in the swing of things as the game play is deeper
than it may appear at first glance. A good, experienced crew will basically destroy everyone without breaking a virtual sweat so it can be a bit
discouraging at first, however most of the matches are fast and fun, win or
loose.

If you play alone I would suggest trying to find a ship with one crew slot open and communicating about what needs to be done.Good times!

Yes I have, but it gets mind boggling boring in about an hour.

I don’t pvp. So when it has a story mode I’ll take another look.

Its somewhat unfortunate that the game has been out for this long and still hasn’t released half of the promised features

Kanbe its well worth a try, its not really pvp as you normally think of it, I personally like running round repairing the ship like a maniac, only jumping on a gun when we have a really good angle and there is a turret free that dedicated gunners are not using.

I play it on and off, its a really good game, lots of fun, but best enjoyed with a group of mates in my opinion.
