A quick video overview complete with a theme song
Sorta NSFW-y but no actual nudity.
Damnit Motoki, now I want to buy it! (Probably will too.) I just wish it wasn't so heteronormative.
Edit: Bought. Presumably 1 hour before NOV20OFF expires.
Edit2: Weird. I just noticed that Gamefly now has Silverfall on sale.
I've always considered snig gers to have a more nasal quality. A bit more air volume from the nostrils, where snickers is mouthier. (I also, for some reason, connote it with the weasels that laugh themselves to death from Roger Rabbit.)
I don't know if most people differentiate between them, however.
Actually, most people don't believe it's a word, from my experience.
I am very precise with language, and I distinguish between the two. I snickers is the lite version, I rarely use it.
Don't worry, I understand. I suppose I've just never heard of nor seen anyone use sni ggers in a derogatory way. I guess people will use any way they can to push peoples' buttons.
And I wasn't comparing cracker to the n-word, I was simply commenting on the fact that many racial slurs are in fact normal everyday words (or sound just like them). Hence the silliness towards the word sni ggers.
/agree. I've never heard that relation. We wouldn't even be having this conversation without (somewhat common to forums) overzealous word filters.
If you are going to activate them both then I'd go with the franchise pack.
The DLC is very much what it says it is. Some of it gives earlier access than normal to guns and vehicles, but it's very easy to choose not to use some of the stuff that you wouldn't get until later, later. Bloodsucker is the only exception.
I think the Invincible pack may as well, but I believe you have to actively set up cheats for this to trigger.
Invincible like all other cheats have to be activated though the cheat menu on your phone. Easy to avoid.
Alright, I think I'll use the Humble key on my secondary account.
Whenever possible, I like to play through a game without the DLC first so I have a sense of what has changed when DLC is added. Thanks to the THQ bundle, I now have a way of doing that. I'll play through the game on my secondary account first, then I'll add the franchise pack to my main account and play through it to see what the DLC adds.
From all reports, the game is a blast. I'm sure I wont have any problems playing through it twice.
Thanks for the replies.
Like I said before, you can choose not to use DLC vehicles and guns if/when you feel they are OP (over powered). The costumes however you may very well enjoy though your play through. On "Normal" difficultly the game has a nice balance, that suits it's over the top nature. On "Hard", it presents a challenge, by upping the intensity (more gangmembers & badass gangmembers).
I'm someone who bought the game on Amazon and then bought DLC that I wanted separately, and I can say that the DLC is only going to add to your initial playthrough rather than change it.
I'd recommend you play through the game with the DLC first off. There's little reason to play the game without the DLC with how it's set up. Either way though, it doesn't really matter too much.
I used this to disable the bloodsucker animation on SR3 - the other perks are still there (extra cash etc) if you want them. Or you can do both.
Unfortunately the bloodsuck animation prevented all other melee kill moves and got old reaaaallly quickly.
I strongly recommend disabling it. It makes it too easy, and takes away some of the fun with melee. If you put some effort into gaining territory control early the in the game, you will have more cash than you can spend by late in the game.
