Thread: Dirty Bomb (PC) -- Splash Damage's new FPS

  1. PC Dirty Bomb (PC) -- Splash Damage's new FPS

    Dirty Bomb is now in open beta and is free to try on Steam.

    I tried a few rounds tonight and it basically plays like Brink without the parkour. You can wall jump in this game but I think that's it?

    I enjoy the gameplay's focus on class skills and teamwork, but the art and weapons in this game feel incredibly generic and unsatisfying.

    Splash Damage are still pretty good at level design and game balance, but how could they not find some better artists to hire after being out of the genre for so long?

  2. I played a couple rounds of this as well and wasn't into it at all. There isn't a gameplay hook to the game. Disappointed.

  3. I beta'd this earlier this year and it was absolute trash. Nothing redeeming about it at all.

    The hook is the different classes and the in-map objectives. I do still enjoy the good old Splash Damage gameplay style. But the art style and the guns in this game are all pretty much generic garbage.

    I've been playing a bit over the last couple of weeks and will probably get on tonight after dinner in about 20 minutes or so. The game shines when you get a good team together but sucks if you're just playing lone wolf with a group of clueless strangers.

  8. The Good News

    1) It's a double credits weekend starting Friday and running through Monday.

    2) PC Gamer is still giving away a free code to unlock the Fragger mercenary.

    3) Alienware is giving away free elite loadouts for the two starting mercenaries, Aura and Skyhammer.

    The Bad News

    The game balance is totally borked right now thanks to the super OP class that was released on Tuesday called Phantom. He has the best SMG in the game, close to the best speed in the game, an invisibility cloak that shields him from damage, and a sword with ridiculous range that can one-hit-kill most mercenaries. Phantom will probably be nerfed soon -- maybe next week -- but until then, I basically leave any room that has more than one Phantom running around because it's so unfun.

  9. The OP Phantom class has been nerfed, so it's safe to play Dirty Bomb again!

    And melee attacks in general got a bit of a global nerf, but I still managed to get a decent number of knife kills, since that was the only thing I could do tonight on an 80-100 ping server.

    When I get a Proxy card with the 20% melee damage boost, it will be curtains for you all! Curtains, I tell you!
