Lol how do you think I feel. Not only did I buy the TF bundle, I was one of the 2 that didn't see any problems with the digital and always online. Now if you excuse me I'll continue to wipe the egg from my face and hope I can log on tomorrow


Random question. If the old xbox 1 DRm was still active could you even play your brand new system/game (not TF) today?

Respawn got it right. Shooters have no business being anything but online. Private matches on LAN are good too if the game can be played competitively.

Single-player shooter games are a thing of the past. The market is dwindling. Players that get through substantial parts of a campaign are now the exception, not the rule.


Single player shooters are not the thing of the past, in fact more people like single player games than MP. SP FPS games can be quite immersive if done right. Even top notch MP FPS games such as TF2 has offline mode where you can play by yourself against bots, Unreal Tournament, etc. There is no reason to keep an FPS exclusive to being online only unless it's in a world that constantly changes(Planetside)

I like the game, it's fun but there really should be offline modes for the game, at least to practice with bots, I know the cloud powers the AI but seriously, it shouldn't take that much resources for the AI, if you played the game you know what I mean.

Really hope offline mode gets patched in.

WoW is a Massive Online Multiplayer game.

The world evolves and changes when you're not logged on, difference between a game where nothing ever changes.

and that is why games should not rely on the internet, especially $60 ones

so do you guys agree with the prior DRM Microsoft wanted?

Its amazing how long trolls come to a specific forum. I would like to see some sort of documentary about their mindset and logic. Xbox live has been running fine for me all day. Every online game has problems on release day, is it gong to be a 1-2 day problem or a month and a half like psn.
This is why I'm never going to get a ps4

Because a few users had a few hours of difficulty within twenty four hours of launch?

That's a rather outrageous reason to restrict "allowable" vision for game design.
