this …. doesn’t look that bad.

Kinda like a sandbox PVP version of bully, but with guns.

The overall look and feel of RH is great. I watched a few streamers play it and they generally seemed to agree that it has a lot of potential. Hopefully it doesn’t end up a dud like Lawbreakers.

Lawbreakers was a decently executed game that just didn’t hit the right note with the players and my own feeling is that RH is going to have the same issue. Though at this point RH still needs a lot of work to reach the decently executed stage :-)

Well, I think it’s hitting right notes with those who have played it and aren’t just immediately condemning it for its super Early Access state. Even Ninja thinks it’s got some good potential, and he’s basically Epic Games’ poster boy for Fortnite. Meanwhile it’s like the dream BR game for Dr. Disrespect, lol. And while yeah streamers’ opinions shouldn’t have extra weight, they do have large audiences who may jump into the game if they see their favorite streamers playing it.

Right now they obviously need to finish up the buildings and stuff, then probably work on the game flow some since there’s quite a big lull towards the end when there doesn’t really need to be.

Also I really really hope that they’re able to make every vehicle in the game drive-able, because it would be hilarious to see people driving around those giant school buses and such.

+ being able to do stuff like break through the glass windows by dive-bombing into them. Then maybe add more minigames and such to keep the ‘show game’ feel going. Basically there’s a lot of obvious stuff they could do to make it more fun and zany. I think it’s the first Battle Royale game that could actually be more about ‘fun’ than being tryhard serious all the time.

I don’t do FB so I can never log in there while you’re streaming. I’m just that voice you’ll never hear, cheering you on from the bleachers and asking my stupid questions because I miss half of it due to the kids or work. ;)

Careful nobody snipes you while you’re getting your loot! :)

Is there actual character creation, or is some rando forced on ya like in Fortnite? ;)

Sorry, I missed the start of this.

PS/ Thanks MJ!

There is character creation, but it’s all a bunch of dudes right now without female players at all. It’s fairly limited at the moment compared to what it probably will be one day in the future.

Speaking of which, Fortnite has had some customization for a while now, you seem to be thinking either of an old version or a new player that doesn’t own anything yet. You have to remember it’s an Early Access title as well with lots still being developed including it’s customization options. You haven’t been forced to be a random person for some time unless you simply don’t own any skins and custom look items yet.

I tried it way back when, actually. Thanks!
