Title: Foxhole, WW2 type MMO
Post by: Ginaz on July 27, 2017, 07:15:50 PM
I've never heard of this game until today.  Looks like a kind of WW2 Online meets Company of Heroes.  It's in early access so I'm staying away for now but it looks intriguing and different from your standard MMO.

This is really good. I spent the first twenty minutes wondering what the fuck. Then I learnt how to get materials, build a gun, submit it to the stockpile of my faction, how to jump in a truck and get to the front line. And I found the fun.

Sounds intriguing, but I am never spending a dime on another Early Access game. Finish the fucker and put a price tag on it, and I can make my decision then.

I was surprised to see this as third in the Steam top sellers list, since it seems pretty cheesy. I don't remember grandad telling us how he parachuted into France then built a truck to get to the frontline.

Technically it's not a WW2 game.  The two factions are Colonials and Wardens.

No one cares about that kind of thing if the game is fun.

Is the game fun?

That was a fun 15 minutes of footage from... 5 hours worth? I guess that compares favorably to World War 2 Online, at least.

Oh look... it's a reboot of Command & Conquer: Sole Survivor!

waste of 20$, didn't find it very fun.

Long periods of running back and forth hauling supplies around so you can build a lot of forts and heavy weapons that can blow up the other teams' forts. The battles themselves are kind of a spammy mess as you can kind of see in the video, just a lot of projectiles being fired your way from offscreen as you try and push through a chokepoint.
