#11201864 Call Of Duty: Ghosts

Posted by Ink.So.Well. on 06 November 2013 - 10:28 PM

I'm only about six to eight hours in and the only game type I can find that isn't Operation: Hump Corner, Then Window is Hunted which is essentially Gun Game, Sticks & Stones and Drop Zone all rolled into one.  Equally fun, hectic and frustrating depending on the starting pistol you spawn with so you better hope it isn't the super shitty Revolver unless you enjoy a panic knifing lunge fest.  The new slide mechanic, Stonehaven (simply because it has plenty of flank opportunities while reminding me of DA:O, Skyrim and Highlander) and the Support Teammate killstreak are probably my most favorite things about this game.  All three are consistently f*cking dope.

 

Everything else is either ridiculous (Guard Dog, people STILL refusing to grow a pair and play the objective under all circumstances, losing close quarter gunfights to hipfiring ARs w/ SMGs), mediocre or your typical CoD antics.  Extinction Mode has a lot of potential however so until I get around to learning/tolerating the maps better and have enough points to make proper stealth and shotgun classes I guess that's where I'm headed next.




#10626963 Whats the most disappointing game played recently ?

Posted by Ink.So.Well. on 15 June 2013 - 07:37 AM

The first time I was disappointed by a game was Chrono Trigger over 15 years ago (sidenote: you haven't lived until you encounter a raging Chrono fanboy who can't possibly comprehend that your opinions, experiences and tastes might somewhat differ from his).

 

On that note, I feel like I should confess I've never actually gotten around to beating Chrono Trigger, but I've played and beaten Chrono Cross multiple times.

 

You can't explain that.

I understand your upset. I get it. Typically when people are upset they lash out as fast and as furious as they can to everyone associated with said company, to anyone who likes that companies products, and especially to anyone buying that companies products. Can we please just be a little better then that? Just a little?

 

Honestly I've yet to see any harsh "anti-microsoft" sentiment that wasn't either misconstrued as some sort of personal attack, or wasn't egged on by "pro-microsoft" posters responding with holier-than-thou attitudes smothered in thinly veiled insults in the first place.  You don't need the sway of popular opinion to discuss any positive aspects of the Xbox One around here, nor parade around as some e-freedom fighter "fighting the good fight" then try to play the victim when everyone starts gunning for you.

 

If the majority opinion bothers you that much there's nothing stopping you from ignoring it altogether or moving on to greener pastures.  I see plenty of people in these so called "hate" threads going on about their business offering balanced/positive views on the console without making a spectacle of it.

I can't belIeve the tide has switched so quickly, now everyone is preordering even after the Wii U did horrible on the day 1 resale market. I for sure wouldn't bother if this was just for resale but with all the negativity I am surprised that anyone on this site is preordering, I for one am not getting this console, ever.

 

I'm not.  I just don't want to hear/see any complaints later down the line from them regretting their choice.
