How do you still enjoy and play games at your age? I love everything about video games but by the time i hit 30 i just lost interest in them. I still love video games but i just cant play them, only thing i can account for it is age.
Overall, I very much like your videos (and how controversial they can be lately)..........but sometimes, a bit more research would help.
bit of a rant...
1, those store purchases are used for server cost. (how else are they going to pay for it. It's a business after all.) Especially with how many players it got within such a short time frame. Why is this even brought up as an issue? hell, this makes games free without them being pay to win at all. I feel like I shouldn't even be saying this. It's a great business model for many games. (League of Legends, Path of Exile etc..) Those are some of the most popular games for a reason.
2, pubg better graphics? does it? the art styles are really different, while I prefer realistic art styles, most of pubg graphics are just washed out textures Very few things in pubg actually look good. (IMHO) Even with all this, I will still say fortnite has better "graphics" overall. The unreal engine is just poorly used by them and causes BAD performance on all systems, especially on the AMD side.. (fortnite also uses the unreal engine). It's preference IMHO. Playing both is great too of course.
Can you please specify what you mean by graphics? pixels? texture quality? etc.. thanks.
to be noted, if I want the best graphics ONLY, I would likely play an EA game like battlefront 2 or Battlefield 1.
3, $37.80 that's as far as I know the highest price recorded to date, that's for the UK friends. Where did you find it for $60? You may want to look on the official site. It's about half the cost there. Just a tip.
4, an awful lot of running? never stopped moving? "14 out of a 100" you didn't get a single kill. I wonder how you even managed that :P Typically happens when players camp in buildings and while It's a valid playstyle. I have never seen anyone or had a game myself where this happened without camping. So, "a lot of waiting?" is that what you did there? :P
It's really part of the concept, It's a game that's easy and fast to pick up. run to the center of the circle. Where ever that might be and be the last man standing. You hopefully knew what you were getting into when installing, and even if you didn't. What's your loss? you didn't want to spend money on it anyways. Isn't that great? you can always buy pubg if you so desire. (for the same concept, but different execution.) my point is, you can play it without spending a dime. Worst case scenario, you wasted some time.
However, If you have that issue (moving a lot, not seeing players), you may want to try another spot on the map, you will find loads of players in the bigger cities. For example, tilted towers. It's very likely you will find 20+ players there all day. Don't blame the game for you not going there and having to "wait" for it.
5, looks like Borderlands? I will give you that they both have a cel-shaded comic look. Great game.
6 the appeal of fortnite is not "that it is free" I didn't get more popular because it's free to play. Many other battle royal games are free and have very little players. It's simply a better-designed game that was "released to the public" at the right time.
Fortnite: Battle Royale
player unknown battlegrounds
Some of these are paid and some not. Yet all of them combined probably have fewer players than 1 of the 2 mentioned games from above.
Unturned (Arena Mode)
Last Man Standing
Rules of Survival
Warface - Battle Royale
Arma 3: PlayerUnknown’s Battle Royale Mod
Rust: Battle Royale
H1Z1: King of the Kill
A large amount of players buys skins etc.. in the game, and most of those combined costs more than pubg currently is sold for. Hell, out of the 40 (or so) friends on my friendslist, there may only be 1 player who didn't support epic games by buying a skin or "battle pass", and to be fair. They are not cheap for an f2p games. of course, this may be a coincidence.
Just for today, a new "battle pass" challenge got released. I didn't see people go to areas like "retail row" which usually is very popular by players. But due to there ("retail row") not being an area with a challenge. In 2 out of the 5 games, I saw no one going there. If that doesn't say anything, I don't know what will. Players clearly buy these battle passes.
Just as a heads up, pubg has skins that are being sold too in the form of gambling with keys..... just like csgo etc.. if I buy a game, I don't want to see any of this.
If you ask me, epic did what they do best. Make a game with their own engine.
ps you can only buy at vending machines from what I have seen so far :P
That being said.
It was pretty obvious you were a new player. But I am glad you enjoyed the game, loved the pickaxe battle. (where you had a tactical shotgun :P). You even got a few more hits in than I expected, so well done.
Glad you "finally" made a video on this. It's a hot game even though it's not fully released yet.
Still a thumbs up. :)
i have a i7 8700k and 1080 and playing in 1080p i have more than 170 fps average i could even say i have 180 fps, with epic quality, i dont know why you say 144, i dont understand, my card is not oc is a evga FTW, just dont know
Yeah you just may not see the dips with naked eye. The higher frame rates, usually the higher dips. I might be wrong though.
Anyway, yes, there is very simple, great and free program to a) monitor fps on screen b) record fps log file, which include average fps, 1% and 0.1% lowest fps dips.
Fraps. Just google and download that. You pretty much don't need any instructions, it's that easy. Just launch the program, check or setup a hotkey for fps benchmark, default was F11 i think, and press that button while gaming. You will see green light in one of your screen corner's as recording on, and red light means recording has stopped.
This will create .csv file, and default folder the file will go is C:\FRAPS.
Finally you will need a program called FRAPS Bench Viewer to open that .csv file you created. I'm really not sure why they don't combine those two programs to one, but yeah you need both of those.
Both programs are extremely light, free of advertisements and do not contain anything shady really. Both programs are one of the first programs i always install when installing fresh Windows. Basically i have fraps always on, it starts with windows, to show my in game fps always when i'm gaming.
One thing though, for some reason when launching Fortnite, the game whines something not being compatible with Fraps, but just ignore that, it will work just fine. I mean if you experience crashing, maybe turn it off when you're not benchmarking, right?
Fortnite is literally the only game i'm aware of that ever has whined anything about Fraps.
You can also record gameplay video with Fraps. I have never tested this though, personally i use Geforce Experience for recording gameplay.
Hope this helps.
actually yes i have motion blur disabled becouse i dont like it, and yes i checkt with my eye and its always a very high frame rate, anyway, is there a software which let me test this? i would be pleased to know =D
Javi Sánchez, i have no idea about 1080p but are you sure you don’t have AA and motion blur and such disabled? Have you recorded framerate file with fraps? I mean if you just keep checking fps counter with your eye, it sometimes might appear higher because you may not notice the dips?I tested my 1080ti out of curiosity and it gave me 122fps average all maxed out at 1440p so at least that is pretty much in line with the video.
The fact its free actually entices people to buy stuff in game. Its like " oh hey, i haven't paid for this and I've played X amount of hours in it and love it so I want to look cooler and don't mind spending a little bit of money to do so." They have earned millions and millions through this very idea... I think you will find we see more games take this idea on board.
Robson Green, that's a nice thought, but i bet most people are just that selfish that they want to buy that skin simply because they want to have it.
I mean it's not like Epic is so selfless either. Sure, BR is free to play, but if you think about it, just one skin costs 20€ and that's without the glider. On top of that Battle Pass costs and PVE doesn't have it so much cheaper either. Those Super Troll Truck Lamas you want comes in as two-packs and costs 15€ each, so basically it's 30€ every time you wanna try your luck to get something you need and usually you get only shit.
I mean, man, those micro-transaction prices are not low. But don't get me wrong, i love playing a game i can invite anyone to download and play with me. Usually people don't want to pay for a game just because i tell them they should or they don't have enough money in the first place.
EDIT: Oh, and this system wouldn't work in every game. In order to get high revenue you need a popular game. If every game started doing this i'm not so sure they all would really succeed.
Man I always need to go your pages Ill leave your videos online sometimes to make them show in my autoplay but I can only watch one video then it shoots to some other channel. weird but still watching whole videos and liking
I think this seals the deal. 2GB cards are officially obsolete. It was fun while it lasted.
10:30 LMAO you get into an axe fight with a tac shotgun in your inventory! Also you run by so many chests lol. I know its a benchmark I know... still going to point it out LOL.
the current trend gonna come and over saturate the market *insert Chinese clone here* one is a mess optimize wise and other is from the guys who gave us Gears of war and let that good MOBO die..... wonder how long these games gonna be around like... a other game.... thet should have been F2P
I was under the impression that pubg had micro transactions in it too, in a pay to play game. Or am I mistaken? Micro transactions for cosmetics in a free to play game is much more acceptable in my opinion. How else are they supposed to make their money? Put out a free game and just pray to the money gods that they magically get paid?
jaybee0507 not that I dont like the guy because I do. Have been subscribed for a couple years now, I just dont think his content in terms of the games content and the devs themselves is researched properly. The actual hardware side of stuff is fine.
And still they are gonna release 4K 144hz monitors and TVs this year, even two titan V (dont even know if it supports SLI but atleast the cut down xx80TI will most likely) wont get 144hz. So i dont know why people want it... maybe just for old games or strategy games (or whatever is not very demanding) at that crisp rez and drop to 1440p for new games.
One of the two has to exist first, and it's usually whichever ends up existing first. Yeah, they are going to release 144hz 4K monitors for people like me who want 4K for CSGO and can easily hit 300 FPS locked in 4K high settings on that game.
They don't have to sell much of something at first because the price is high.
1080p monitors have existed since before 2005, even though most people couldn't push games in 1080p back then.
What is this comment?
Sonic Mobian, my apologies for going off context but how does Warframe look 2018, does it have life left and how it is for new players? I'm kinda interested but i have been put off because it's kinda old and i'm afraid if it's golden days are long behind?
Oh sure you're solution is to take away are Battle Royale games and make us lose are cash that we invested in for cosmetics and get no reimbursement for spending. How would you like it if I took away your game that you spent hundreds of cash over time and gave you no reimbursement, Would that be fair to you? I don't think it would.
I played Warframe for example for 3 years now, I spend a ton of cash on Prime Access alone. Well over 500 dollars tops (150 per Prime Access buy) because I am passionate about the game just as much as the developers and I want to help them succeed in there game with as much support as I can give them. Is it truly fair to take away a game that you invested 500 dollars of you're hard earn cash and then lose that game but get no reimbursement? Not even a little? I be solely pissed off about it.
I spent like 70 Bucks for a battle-pass (10 dollar version) and a tier buyout to catch up 60 bucks worth of V-Buck because I felt that Fortnite both BR and Save the World has the same success rate as Warframe and felt both Warframe and Fortnite are the most successful games.
Fortnite and gfx won't go in one sentence unless there is "no gfx" used
Sorry for saying this I just got tired of this "cartoon style" games being a good excuse for not making gfx...
When I was a kid I dreamed for games being as real as real is... not some comic/cartoon
The only thing with cartoon its safer for kids, but see the above sentence, is that really what kids want?
"The only thing with cartoon its safer for kids" This alone already says enough about you.
An art style does not make it "safe" for kids. This game has murder in it. Safe for kids? what?
shaking my head.
No matter how clear you state it in the video, most people still see just the raw numbers. I know ultra settings are the baseline to benchmark to be inline with other reviewers, but usually, like this time, they are really misleading how well games actually perform. I'm not saying anything in the video is wrong. I'm just reminding people about this fact.
Sry but I'm going to pass the like button for this video (not going to dislike you dont deserv it), you can pay me an i will not play that game, but yeah it's just a copy and rip off pubg and wasnt necesary at all cause pubg is already a copy of the H1Z1 and we didnt need a ripoff of the ripoff just penibile
Yep. I think the amount of dislikes was because the reviewer didn’t have a clue half of the time what he was talking about. I mean he implied free games can’t be as good as paid ones and why would you spend money on ingame purchases because with that money you could buy pubg...yeah fortnite has actually more players and is technically better game, i mean optimised, graphics and smooth movement. Pubg is a bit clunky, right?
Iordan Sorin Titus Humm i have not much right to talk since i dont even have a pc!! (sold my build two months ago) 😕😕 BUT for me THE shooter to play is battlefield, th e destruction, vehicles and map scale is completely different. I did play fortnite but only the PvE and i liked it alot, never plaied the battle royal part, i could try it, but its not my thing, and PUBG seems the less interesting out of the two.
Well that’s not entirely incorrect because you still need the paid version to unlock the full game. Only battle royal mode is free. You know. Just saying. You can even get a free copy of Fortnite (friend invite code) from someone who has one of the more premium editions, so that’s not really far fetched for someone to want one.
jaybee0507 no worries man... And now that I'm looking at it, I was seeing 117 fps for both resolutions. But after looking carefully it looks to be the numbers against the colours of the game at times. It's 117 & 177 fps right?
TheBigManUno, Oh my apologies, i misunderstood. How do you mean gtx1080ti performance was strange? I benchmarked my gtx1080ti and 7700k, at 1440p, i mean 16:9 and same absolute max settings as the video. Average: 122fps, %1 lows: 95fps and 0,1% lows: 77fps. So at least 1440p pretty much inline with the video i think.
TheBigManUno, yes. My monitor is 3440x1440p ultrawide. With gtx1080ti framerate never drops below 100 which is my cap. AA slightly reduced, everything else maxed. However with gtx980ti i need to drop to high settings to maintain 100fps with no dips below.
I have also played a lot with 2560x1440/144hz monitor and with same settings as above it hits my 120 fps ceiling all the time with no dips.
Short answer: Gtx1080 paired with normal 1440p monitor you can safely get over 100fps at epic settings and with maybe with little to nothing tweaking you’re at steady 144fps. I mean surely you don’t need AA or motion blur or such...
As soon as I heard him compare Pubg to fortnite I knew this video was going to get a ton of dislikes no matter the quality of content. The purpose of this video is "I think fortnite is a good deal because it's free, halfway decent, and it runs well on almost anything". That is good info for somebody who does not know. I didn't know Fortnite was free for quite a while after I discovered it on twitch. I wasn't into buying games at the time so I didn't think about checking the price. If I had seen this video pop up in my news feed I would have had something new to do. Doc's always trying to bring us the best deals he can find, whats better than free?
Well, usually nothing is ever actually free and free games introduce very much different cash grabbing schemes which i would gladly avoid by paying for the game in the first place, but i have to say Fortnite BR is a magnificient exception, where you can spend money only in cosmetic stuff. Bravo.
join a match, jump off the sh it, after a moment you open parachute you see a guy fall faster than you with open parachute, you are like wtf he get the guns and shoot you down even before you land on the ground, you are dead you quit the match you find that there is a store wow buy faster parachute with money but but no pay2win
PUBG is 60$...in what parallel universe????
EDIT: Absolute best free game...haHAA
And also...stop showing 15fps 4K gameplay...THX! 4K 15fps +motion blur +stutter......@Tech of Tomorrow PLS....my eyes can't take it....
jaybee0507 Yeah, very true... ultra sometimes offers unoticeable things than can be turned down. But performance measuring its good to have presets so that you can see the performance globaly, same preset for all reviews, if everyone tested their own settings you couldnt truat anyone or would have to go reading every big of info about specs xD Presets simplify and "globalise" the process.
Yes, i was referring 3440x1440 as baseline to compare as a closest resolution to 4k i have enough fortnite experience with, and my whole point was to remind people not to just watch the raw numbers in videos like this. Yes, GTX980TI will easily get 60fps and more on 4K with High-ish settings, and that's double, give or take, than the number presented in this video for some what similar performing gtx1070. I mean, sometimes i wonder, why we even want to see Epic/Ultra graphics benchmarks?
I never comment Elrich but your comment on free games kinda shows how reviewers can be very out of touch with the market. Free games are huge cash cows, and have been for a while. Look at League of Legends, Dota 2, Hearthstone and the list goes on. Making your game free lowers the barrier of entry drastically, and means that it's far easier to build an audience than a conventional 60$ title. Not to mention I know plenty of people (myself included)who spend way more than 60$ on "Free to play"games they like... Free to play doesn't mean bad, like it did 10 years ago. It's a massive part of PC gaming now.
Rage i like the game to i play it a lot with my son but i dont seem to get the hang of the building thing 😜 thats why i play more pubg because its a little more realistic but playing with more people together is defenitely better in fortnite
I had a similar opinion of fortnite too however once you get quick at building and make 2-4 bases a game that you can just sit in and wait for other people with a vantage point the game becomes more fun IMO. However TOT is right about the amount of running, there seems to much even for the tryhards.
Fortnite however is the more advanced game. Better graphics, better performance, smoother controls and the building aspect makes it a unique pvp game. These are the facts. Pubg is a great game but it’s hard to go back to because it fully lacks the building and demolishing and it feels ”just a shooter game”. That’s my oppinion.
