  1. Sea of Thieves - Get Yer Booty!

    Not just storms but there are definitely rougher sections of the sea that will make you drift off course if you're not keeping an eye in there wheel. Calmer oceans near the bottom of the map tend not to do this. They've struck a nice balance if you ask me. Its fun. Its not a sim but does well to evoke the ideas everyone has when it comes to sailing ships.

    You put a quest/voyage on the table. You get the map/instructions once you've voted on the voyage.

    Not to mention he teleported onto our sloop when his gallon wasn't even remotely close to us.

    Sure it's valid. The comparison has nothing at all to do with pre-release bullshit. We have two games here that left players scratching their heads on where the game was. Both presenting a paper thin gameplay loop with no meaningful progression and one that never really evolves. In NMS, that you did on that very first planet didn't change vs what you were doing on the 15th planet. Same with SoT and it's quests. They both exhibit amazing technical achievement at the expense of depth in the gameplay design. I understand NMS has picked itself up and is a much richer, interesting game these days. I hope Rare can do the same with SoT.

    Although I'm not 100% sure on this, I suspect the quests are instanced to the group right until the objective is spawned into existence and the likelihood of someone having an identical chest location probably slim to none given the 6 ship limit in each session. I'm quite comfortable with the player density as it is but perhaps I've been lucky. I seem to encounter other ships a lot more frequently than others have reported (each voyage reveals glimpses of them sailing about here and there in the distance) with actual close combat engagements occurring at a rate that isn't frustrating to deal with. It's the gameplay loop where my concerns lie - I mean I'm still having fun for now but the potential for it to be so much more is writ large. There's a whiff of No Mans Sky about the whole thing.

    Hey! I killed one of them! He was with me on the ferry of the damned

    There's a bunch of us on PC here who will be getting together to play but the more the merrier. Here's a link to the discord server. I'll be on later this evening once I'm done with work - https://discord.gg/sqr2GXE

    Boozy alt account spotted off the port bow?

    That's pretty awesome. Luckily I bought from the MS store so I just refunded and will be doing Game Pass instead. Edit: And I still have a 14 day Game Pass trial to use. If that works, things just got even better!

    I stand corrected Mr. Cat. The FAQ for gamepass said Xbox One only on a cursory glance but googling further tells me cross-platform Play Anyway titles are an exception.

    I'm pretty sure game pass isn't an option on PC. At any rate, I'm quite willing to take the hit if it turns out to be a turkey. It's a game I've been looking forward to for ages and, like an MMO, I'm optimistic that it'll develop into a richer experience so I'm putting my money where my mouth is so to speak. I wanna ride on the crest of the wave, though I think Rare best be prepared to take a kicking in the reviews when it comes to value proposition.
  14. Sea of Thieves - Get Yer Booty!

    I'm all pre-loaded and ready to go. That said, I have reservations about the amount of content the game is launching with (especially considering the price) but It's not stopping me from diving in day one.
