Saw this on Twitch recently. It's running a closed beta right now and I'm curious what people think about this game. I'll probably get the PC version when it comes out.

It sounds neat, but I am not into MMO type games. I'd rather play a variety of different single player games than sink a ton of time into a multiplayer game. Unfortunately, the gaming industry has dollar signs in their eyes when they think of "games as a service" these days and everyone wants to get in on the gravy train.

Not really my cup of tea. As a rule I don't really get much enjoyment out of first person games or shared-world sandboxes.

The quality looks good enough and it's Rare so they get nostalgia bonus points but I'm going to pass.

Since Rare is making it, I hope it has some of the humor games like Monkey Island has.

I'm in the closed testing sessions. I love the game. Pre-ordered already.

I loved watching streams of the game. I got into the closed beta and wanted to play. Sadly I am a loner with no friends so I decided I would try and find friends to play with. I was locked in the brig each time and sometimes they sunk the ship with me stuck inside. I am now as salty as the sea and losing interest.

I never had that problem, but it probably helped that I was experienced and used voice chat. There were a lot of trolls during the closed beta session because everyone could get access for free by pre-ordering and canceling. Plus they gave out a lot of free invites for it. I expect release will be troll-ridden for a few weeks before they get bored and move on as well.

I played the alpha. It was fun, but it seems like it’s going to be a game that will get boring real quick

I may not have had actual experience but I knew what to do from watching others and I was using voice chat. It just made no difference because it was an instant thing. Load onto island then immediately load into brig. Nobody even tried to communicate with me or anything. I do expect it to be different once it launches but the beta definitely didn't allow me to have fun actually playing. Still, I did laugh a ton watching others so I'll probably still pick it up.
