I actually liked the crafting and hunting mechanic in this, but the targets got way too close to some poacher shit for this.

"It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Drunk!" (kingfish), Wednesday, 12 December 2012 13:39 (seven years ago) link

Huh? All the hunting quest targets I've seen lately are suggested due to their exoticness: blood kimodo, black leopard, white belly tapir, etc.

guess i'm not that far yet, i'm on the initial Animal Control levels and haven't graduated to poaching.

i want to play a good recent shooter. is this ok? or is it too douchey to deal w/

before and after broscience (goole), Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:05 (seven years ago) link

it's kinda douchey but the mechanics carry it through for me. doing things is fun, and the semi-random wanderings of animals and soldiers adds a lot. enough for me to overlook the dumb elements.

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:11 (seven years ago) link

huh ok, i'll keep it in mind. i did enjoy fc2 a lot.

cozen where are you with fps science these days

wait r. shift to hold breath???????

adam, Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:28 (seven years ago) link

Or right-stick to hold, yeah. Better accuracy.

To be fair, the only really douchey things are the characters, and they're written that way.

Got to the sex scene last night, which made sense in the story, I guess, and wasn't nearly as cringe-worthy as the speech the protagonist makes afterwards trying to rile up the troops.

Also, the 2ndary characters aren't used enough

"It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Drunk!" (kingfish), Thursday, 13 December 2012 21:56 (seven years ago) link

this game is 7/10 solid

story is so dumm tho & ~drugz~ sequences cringey

i just wish i wasn't having so much fun as a tribal-tatted bro shooting lots of animals and african people.

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 22:09 (seven years ago) link

Pretty sure it's Indonesia...?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 13 December 2012 22:10 (seven years ago) link

i thought it was african pirates taking over a polynesian or indonesian island for some reason? i dunno, i haven't gotten very far in the story + it doesn't matter.

r shift to breathe means dude is either is stretching his hand all the way across the keyboard to steady the shot OR dude has some crazy ass left-handed mouse setup. i'm a left-handed dude and even i think that shit is aberrant. is he buying special left handed mouses?

the open world thing where i walk and walk and walk and walk and i'm almost where i want to go and then i fall off a cliff and die and whoops i'm back where i started. drives me nuts. would be willing to forgive this game its narrative/cultural dumbassedness if it weren't for that shit.

adam, Thursday, 13 December 2012 22:27 (seven years ago) link

yeah when i die i never know what's going to be saved. if i skin an animal, make something, and then die, it's usually gone. but then i did one of those 'wanted' missions and did a takedown on the target, promptly got shot in the head, and it counted as a successful mission.

wish there was a save-whenever-you-want system.

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:12 (seven years ago) link

ugh theres no self save option? that suuuuuuuucks

tiniest homeless (jjjusten), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:13 (seven years ago) link

like honestly i have no idea why devs in 2012 would be doing that, esp with an open world game

tiniest homeless (jjjusten), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:14 (seven years ago) link

oh wait, there is a 'save' option, but it's still weird. it doesn't save your position and let you load up from right where you left off, so does it just save your gear etc?

have a sandwich or ice cream sandwich (Jordan), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:15 (seven years ago) link

yeah it saves your stuff and stats but you "wake up" in one of the fast travel locations

adam, Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:21 (seven years ago) link

h8 it when this 'open-world' game kicks you back to a loading screen when you kill a guy the 'wrong' way

༼ ༎ຶ ෴ ༎ຶ༽ kma (cozen), Thursday, 13 December 2012 23:24 (seven years ago) link

when i was doing the medusa mission i started on a hang-glider going to the far side of the beach to approach from that way, and it said 'FAILED: YOU LEFT THE MISSION ZONE'. like, yo, i had a plan. too bad going between missions and wandering around isn't a little more seamless.

oh man that blows. in FC2 you could go wherever the hell you wanted

before and after broscience (goole), Friday, 14 December 2012 02:07 (seven years ago) link

are the Crysis games worth playing? The whole series is available for less than twenty bucks american this weekend on steam and amazon

"It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Drunk!" (kingfish), Saturday, 15 December 2012 18:31 (seven years ago) link

the first few hours of crysis 1 are awesome. super fun. then it gets kind of bad but you can just reload and fuck around in the first area some more.

heard crysis 2 is more of a zzzz corridor shooter. no firsthand experience tho.

adam, Saturday, 15 December 2012 18:39 (seven years ago) link

in the jungle part of 1 you are basically the predator.

adam, Saturday, 15 December 2012 18:40 (seven years ago) link

Hmmm

"It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Drunk!" (kingfish), Saturday, 15 December 2012 23:21 (seven years ago) link

Okay, I'm gunna need a break between playing FC3 and this

“For example, GTA is a colonization game. You come to New York, you colonize New York. Most open world games function that way. Ezio comes to Rome and colonizes Rome. To take that to its extreme, exaggerating those tropes is how you reveal them. The exaggeration of that trope is what happens in Far Cry 3.”

Finally beat this. You can pretty much call the end of the game, but there ya go. The plot points are stupid, but what are you gunna do.

"It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Drunk!" (kingfish), Wednesday, 19 December 2012 05:13 (seven years ago) link

The "good" ending is perfunctory, but the "bad" ending is D U M B

how's crysis 3? loved first and second

really pretty on pc. had some dumb fun with multiplayer but no confidence in its longevity

adam, Friday, 22 March 2013 02:35 (seven years ago) link

i never do multiplayer so that's no big deal. worrying reports of it being too easy though. not something that could be levelled at crysis 2

NI, Friday, 22 March 2013 18:48 (seven years ago) link

no idea if this is bullshit or not, but it looks AWESOME

played tutorial and first 10 minutes of crysis 3 and so far seems a lot less fun than c2. poss felt like this at start of the other two but not chomping at the bit to go back to it
