Kate Bishop content is pretty damn good and she plays really nice. VA does a great job too. They just need to stop delaying shit. If they release Hawkeye's scenario, and release all the labs and shit they've been delaying then I believe this game will have a nice turnaround from its current course.
Looks like the leaks about Captain Marvel and Mar-Vell were true too because they're shifting from AIM to the Kree as enemies so we may be seeing new mob types in the next couple months!

As I am not the biggest super hero fan out there, is it worth 30 usd for story and the content as it is now?

I know a new hero was released this week and seems in general she got good impressions. And that lots QoL has been done over the last months.

I think so. I got a shit ton of game time off the base content. Now with Kate out, and Hawkeye coming soon there's legs here.

Yes. the campaign is actually pretty decent. there is a little filler towards the middle where u have to do regular multiplayer type of missions. But its coherent has some long cutscenes and i enjoyed the ending.
Jesus just went to game updates and it’s 52 gigs on Series X? WTF?
yeh the new character they added for some reason makes u download a huge patch.
Whats the state of the game, is it still running bad and have poor matchmaking?
i've been playing on PS5. Compared to when i played on PS4 pro at launch, it seems to be running at smooth 60fps and not a choppy 30 like on last gen. Matchmaking is somehow worse. It has never really worked for me. And it still doesn't

The game has improved alot, more stable, better matchmaking, the bigger issue would be your platform of play and low player population on like the PC is bad. PS4/PS5 from what we've seen has the healthiest population.

If you got a PS5 or a series X, the game really runs smooth.

Playing on PS5, the matchmaking takes a while right now but I'm assuming it's cause I'm leveling Kate Bishop and most other people are likely doing the same.
It's running great on PS5, still has an occasional bug here and there that may require a restart of checkpoint but they're very few and far between.
They've been patching it almost weekly.

Yup, I took the 30 usd bait and about 60% done with the campaign.

I didn't try the game until now so let's see at end game, but fair enough story and mechanics for now atleast.

i really enjoyed campaign. And post campaign ur characters unlock a fair bit of perks and abilities. So the carrot on the stick is there for a little while. Ultimately i just bounced off of it cuz i got sick of killing bullet sponge robots constantly.

granted tons of games have enemies that are samey. I can do it in Destiny no problem. But for whatever reason the enemies in Avengers just aren't much fun to fight. So u got this great combat and skill tree....but the A.I isn't worth it

The bullet spongy thing is a bit of tiresome, but after Division I'm used to it.

They have something great here I think, but would need to add the ante up a bit on content and diverse enemies a bit more I think.

And some chars are really not that cool to play, like Kamala.

Hopefully they pump out new mission arcs with cool story in coop and with companions. So looking forward to the new char they released.

Doing some minor missions to boost power level and get more used to combat for each of them for now.

I still find myself coming back despite its issues. I’d like to platinum it some day. If the combat weren’t fun (albeit repetitive) I would have bailed out ages ago.

Went back to it now that I have a PS5, definitely runs better now game no longer crashes, matchmaking is still an issue but the game is in a workable state now at least.

Matchmaking is an issue i don’t see how they’re going to fix unless they go crossplay.

Dusted off my Iron Man. Always fun atleast.

Zeus’ butthole
I bought the game at launch, played for like 3 hours and then decided to shelf it until PS5 upgrade.

Ive probably played about 15 hours over the last few days. Yeah, it’s flawed and has many issues, but I think I’m hooked enough to where I’m gonna go for the Plat.

It satisfies just enough of the “loot fiend” in me, where my simple brain gets stimulated seeing numbers go up.

Game coulda been great, I feel like there’s a decent foundation there. A shame

That's my thought on the game. I want to go back now with the PS5 upgrade, I had just finished the main story which I really really enjoyed and was just getting into the post game stuff so relearning how to play is gonna be a little rough but getting the platinum should be enough to feel like I got my moneys worth from the game. This is the problem with GaaS titles, they expect to have instant success and don't realize that it takes time to build something good. This and Anthem both failed by launching something that had great bones and foundation but didn't have the mechanism to keep you coming back and grinding, they expected Destiny levels of playerbase overnight forgetting that Destiny took a while before it became Destiny

So the MCU outfits (and a few more) leaked due to a glitch with the mega hives:

Cap's looks pretty good, the others are kinda whatever and have better looking outfits already.
Widow's will probably look better with the hairstyle change.
I'm interested to see if they will actually do fat thor though, that will probably be the best one.

Having a blast with the Red Room update.

I like the daily challenges and kind of miss doing them once all my character's challenge cards were maxed.

This is a strictly solo thing and you can use any character, but it was made for Black Widow in mind since one of the challenges is to defeat enemies while invisible.

Anyways, if you are a Black Widow main, you will get a kick out of this.

Oh, yeah, most of you probably know this, but just in case someone was as clueless as me:

I found out something that has made this game a bit more enjoyable for me.
For a while I was so frustrated with missions being at a much higher power level than my characters even though my characters are not even close to the suggested power level. Even putting it to the lowest challenge, it was 12-17 power level higher.

Turns out that the mission challenge level is calculated by not only what equipment you are wearing, but also the equipment in your inventory!

Once I dismantled all the unused higher level "garbage" equipment, did the mission level went back to normal. Phew! Now I can progress again! For a while, I thought my fate was to constantly go against +17 level higher enemies, LOL!

The red room stuff is good yeah, but I did it all in one day and now there are no more challenges...I mean it said step 1, but there's nothing now;
Also got like 5 useless torso's for widow in a row as rewards.
