I always just dropped the remote bombs and mixed herbs. Never had a problem when I did that.

I still need to play through Chris. So far I've played Leon once and Jake twice.

Yeah it got to a point where I just drop green herbs and use remote mines on one enemy just to make room. I haven't started jake yet BL 2 takes all my free time. :(

I never used remote mines. Never found a need to.

Never needed to drop herbs though. Maybe I just used them too much.

I mostly used remote mines on those fat zombie dudes.

Speaking of RE I ''BOUGHT'' that new resident evil CGI movie it was pretty damn good. If you like RE2 you'll like this movie. Loved the end battles.

Halo ODST is not as good as I remember. It feels like they tweaked the strength of various weapons, enemies, and your health to give the game more a feeling of desperation.

It's a shame that the two most non-standard $60 games this year had to come out the same day and inadvertently compete against each other. It's hard enough for those type of games to succeed when they are released by themselves. Still, I hope that both games do at least moderately well because I'm getting sick of the $60 game lineup becoming such a dull, homogeneous mess (RE6 being the epitome of that for me).

Ebay's new logo is so. . .Mediocre, boring, and shitty. Some fucktard probably got paid to design it too. I need a career like that.

Also why is it every time somebody redesigns their logo, it's always worse?

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

This game is... kinda buggy. Kinda really buggy. Nothing too terrible, though.

Except for the bug that keeps forcing me to take a mission I don't want to fucking take. Jesus Christ that shit ain't right.

Explain.

Well, uh... in short...

I used to be worried that with the lack of TUs, getting proper line-of-sight would be a huge pain in the ass. I now see that is not the case because line-of-sight barely matters anymore.

There is a consistent logic to the cover system, but it is... unintuitive. And funny-looking.

No, he's locked on the disk you have to find the key in the $10 1kb download.

If you're asking that because Bethesda's name is attached, it's worth pointing out that they are only the publisher, not the developer.

It took you this long to become sick of it? I've been sick of it for years now. I do hope they do well just because they are a bit different, but that's about impossible at the $60 price point. Who likes to gamble on $60 games? So everyone waits for a price drop. $60 price point has to go, these underdog games cannot survive at it because the average gamer won't pay it for something they don't know they'll even like. And if they don't sell, they get discounted quickly, then everyone assumes they flopped. "Oh look, X-Com is $40 already. It's been a month." That looks bad to the average gamer, and they'll wait for further price drops. So just launch them at $40 or $50 and try to get people to take a chance on your game instead of trying to fall in line by charging $60 for your game.

If you want to improve things, here's a tip, stop buying $60 Call of Duties. Since it sells hugely at that price, everyone thinks they can charge the same and get away with it. No sir, that doesn't work. You're X-Com/Dishonored, not Call of Duty. It's like if McDonalds started charging Red Robin prices. Doesn't work. - Actually, that's a horribl0e comparison, because McDonalds sells hugely, whereas X-Com and Dishonored will probably barely break 100k combined. . . :cry:

Can't blame people for wanting to drop $60 on Call of Duty though. They'll probably be playing it a lot longer than they would be playing a game like Dishonored.

Publishers need to give up the dream of their game selling well at $60, especially for games like Dishonored and XCOM. Releasing games like those at this time of year was also a horrible idea. They should have been released in the Summer when there isn't a lot coming out so that people will be more willing to give them a chance due to lack of other options.

Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing Transformed is coming out at $40 on consoles, $30 on handhelds. That's the way to do it for a franchise that's not huge like Call of Duty.

I've been sick of it for a while too, I just think that this year especially has been the worst yet as far as everything feeling samey.

I agree about lower prices for stuff like this, especially this late in the generation. Not every full release should be $60. Especially with a new IP, it might be better to release at $40. I want to see these kind of games do well, but the hype levels for games that aren't COD or Halo just aren't enough to justify a $60 price tag. If I didn't get them for $45 each, I would have just bought one (or possibly neither since a price drop is inevitable).

People will pay $60 for COD or Halo because they know what they are getting and they are willing to pay for it. A lot of people aren't going to want to risk their $60 on a weird power-based stealth game or a turn-based strategy game. But maybe at $40 they would. And if they do well at that price, maybe a sequel could have a bigger budget and release at $60.
