If you like jank and tearing hordes, this is right up your alley. I am enjoying Biomutant despite the very tepid reviews, so what do I know?

What is jank?

I’m sadly going to finish RE8 sooner than expected and was hoping to get back to Outriders, but this might be a smaller Doom-like diversion. I mean considering the price, I doubt epic would describe this one…

the reviews say to say same thing. a lot of unused potential. could have been fun, but. or controls well, but. seem to like the gameplay, but glitches and stuff keep it from being something good. maybe a patch could fix?

IGN gave it a 5

Verdict

Necromunda: Hired Gun has an iconic setting, lots of gore, and great mobility and gunplay, but it keeps giving you reasons to not play it. Whether it's the technical issues, the hopelessly dim AI, or a story that’s as bland as a barn door and comically short, you have to be willing to overlook a towering pile of aggravating problems in order to appreciate what this RPG shooter does well.

Really doesn’t sound or look bad and at least it wasn’t full price. Seems like a good distraction and nothing a nice patch couldn’t fix on most issues not related story.

And, I’d still like to know what jank means.

Also, do you have to know anything about Warhammer?

Urban Dictionary :

jank
adj- broken; unnecessarily redundant, superfluous, or meaningless; stupid or ridiculously moronic; bootleg or of questionable quality
Fuck! This CD player I bought off Ebay is jank.

While we were in china we went through this market and bought all these movies for $3. They're so jank, you can see the heads of the people in front of the camera at the theater moving at the bottom of the screen.

My parents made me call home to check in with them every hour.. it was so jank.

Ok. And isn’t most of the Warhammer games those 3-D side scrollers?

They run the gamut. From FPS to RTS to flying games to card games. Everything. None are particularly good though.

I find it hilarious that you said you don't like taking a gamble when I said to just randomly pick a game from your backlog but you'll preorder a game you know nothing about, had gotten no reviews at the time, and know nothing about the franchise or the developers.

where did i say i don't like taking a gamble? i buy games that good to me and that i think i will enjoy. so far so good, but there's always a first. this looks good and you don't seem to have to know anything about Warhammer. just a FPS that looks and plays similar to new Doom's (which i love). so of course i would bite at like $30. so what's wrong with that?

You said you don't like taking chances/gambling when it comes to deciding what game to play next and then you literally preorder games you know nothing about and no reviews. It's the exact same thing.

i'll never preorder or order a game i know nothing about. i'll always see a video or two or read something about it. mostly go off the video and gameplay. as i said i buy what LOOKS good to me and what i like to play. i have yet to be disappointed, thus i have yet to gamble with my gaming purchases.
