Would love to join up w/ LawbreakersGAF. I'm Champloo4 on PSN.

(Probably won't have it at launch tommorrow since I ordered the CE from Limited Run Games. Hopefully later this week!)

Thanks, and you should get the digital code today or tomorrow before they send out the physical disc.

Although I gave the devs a hard time in the beta thread about the Switch buttons comment, I do hope this game finds an audience and people enjoy it. So I wanted to bump the thread and give it a little exposure.

Personally, even after reading the OT, I'm still confused what this game is. I get now it's not overwatch. But how does the title lawbreakers connect to blitzball? Are these caught criminals who are fighting for entertainment like ancient gladiators? Or more broadly, what do you do in this game? I'll try reading OT one more time but if someone can ELI5, I'd appreciate it.

Edit: I guess I don't understand if it's first person? Third person? What is a gravity differential in the context of gameplay? I don't have access to youtube at the moment and the pictures seem too busy to clearly describe whats going on.

Edit2: ah sorry I see now the OP mentions FPS.

It's a team-based shooter where each player selects their own hero character. The speed is closer is Titanfall, and it's heavily focused on skilled combat. Some characters are easier to play than others.

Thank you! I did enjoy Overwatch but usually am not that fond of FPS. I will keep an eye on impressions and reviews though.

Also wanted to give a quick thank you to the developers for including a vast array of people of color and both sexes. Nice to see more inclusion along these lines.

Yeah absolutely, also it pretty much avoids sexualization on it's female characters. I mean sure there's some "boob armor" if someone takes issues with that. But it's still pretty damn mild compared to many other games with wide hero pools. Also to add in your questions about the game, aerial combat plays a big part in most of these maps with their zero gravity zones. So it's just not through rocketpack like abilities. The aerial combat and "skiing" makes this remind me of Tribes.

They've said it isn't slowed down at all. I think it's just naturally "slower" because of controller aiming

Feels amazing to slingshot yourself in low gravity

Thank you for the additional info! If I could make one small advice for OP, maybe one or two GIFs could go a long way? I know they take bandwidth but for those who don't have access to youtube / at work, it might convince someone to keep researching later? But probably just my personal preference.

Seconded! I feel that one can get really "boss" gifs about this game =P Something to highlight the movement at it's best.

Great OT. I'm really excited for launch, and if you told me that after the earlier betas and previews of this game I'd have said you were crazy. This game improved so much over the past few months to the point where now I expect it to be my main shooter for the near future.

Can't wait to try Harrier.

Fantastic OT, OP! I should be brave and make an OT next time for a game few people want to do that I am hyped for like this one.

I wanted to add one other thing for others who are Twitch prime members:

https://blog.twitch.tv/first-look-at...i-a43794438c73

Tons of cool stuff for Prime guys like myself, the biggest of which, is a Kappa avatar in game! That's pretty awesome if you ask me.

Also, I am surprised that the OT title I suggested was liked as much as it was. First time ever on GAF to see that. Woo hoo!

Gunslinger > your waifu.

Curiously watching the Steam population count for this game to see if it's worth picking up.

Beta numbers indicate this game's dead on PC, but we'll see.

Yeah there isn't any hype for this game at all it seems. I didn't get a chance to play the beta so no idea how it is or how well it will do. I actually had no idea this game was even coming out so soon if it wasn't for seeing this OT.

I think it'll be a little slow out of the gate number wise but I'd expect it'll pick up over time. There's some generic stuff on the surface of LB that probably puts people off, but the gameplay itself is fun as hell so hopefully once it's out word of mouth will get people interested.

Played the beta and thought it would be a lot of fun in a LAN setting. I didn't see but is there an option for a private game? This would put it above Overwatch for our group.

I know it's online only but even just being able to create a password protected lobby to have 8-12 people join and play would be stellar.

Did this game not have a preload, or is Steam just a little slow to update player population? Still says 31 playing, and that's what it was saying before the game came out.

I'll gladly take the time to make some cool GIFs, especially if we can get some people from GAF together in a game later :D

I have the Steam version so if anyone else has it please let me know and we can group up at some point.

I'll need to find a better way to convert my OBS recordings into GIFs since they lose alot of quality the way I'm doing it now, if anyone has any tips they'd be greatly appreciated since the recordings are super high quality so it's a bummer to end up with non-representative GIFs.

I'll make sure to get some cool moment to moment footage of cool plays, but here's a quick example of the type of stuff I'll be recording for the OP in order to show off the traversal for each character, (this is from one of the beta's and the footage is much lower quality than the original OBS recording)

I learned a long time ago to not pre-load on steam. Way faster for me to just download it post release than to deal with that horrendous unpacking process... Saw lots of people complaining about it on the steam hub.

Got a couple matches in with gunslinger class... I love the pistols + throwing knife combo.
