Press X to Salute Flag
I never got what everyone was raving over the original for. It was shoddy stealth meets bog standard CoD gunfights and constantly taking away control for cutscenes (holy shit the opening sequence was intolerable with them).

I'm with nominal. It is a bafflingly bad / muddled movie, with occasionally ok interactive sections.

I guess I haven't played enough shooters since original Half Life to know what Wolfenstein was doing so much better than the competition. My reaction was the same as Nom's.
Is there anything SolRo doesn't get bitchy defensive over?
Doom 2016 went out of its way to say, "Fuck shitty story getting in the way."
Wolfentein stopped every minute for BJ to mumble about how tired of the killing and the fighting he was, but that he must keep fighting, and killing. Then I had to spend 5 minutes playing 3 card Rorschach monte on a train.
I think they first 10 minutes alone had no less than three "stumble around with no control, ears ringing after explosion" moments.
but they are also both fast shooters with lots of good shoots to shoot
Fuckin game hipsters, man
Although I can't say I found the gameplay or plot exceptional, you can't fuck with Starbreeze when it comes to building a world; just because of that I thought it was the best game I played that year. It's no Escape from Butcher Bay but I dare anybody to name 10 single-player shooters since Half-life 2 that are better than The New Order.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Fuckin' people with no discernment, imagination or critical thinking who limply accept what it shovelled at them.
Listen here, hipster trash. No one said New Order has The Best Story Ever or The Best Gameplay Ever or The Deepest Plot Ever.
It is just a good game with a good story with a good plot.
The fact you cant admit that enjoy it but instead keep arguing about how you're too cool to like it just proves you're hipster trash.
Who knew what was holding the pure action of Spear of Destiny and Doom back was not humanizing BJ "B-jay" Blazkowicz.
Jesus Christ, you guuuuuuuuyyys.
Just yesterday, after rewatching the chainsaw scene, I was lamenting that the game probably wouldn't get a sequel because they killed off BJ.
Thankfully our simulation controllers rewrote the universe to add a sequel.
A Trailer which shows they didn't know which trailer they needed for E3 so they just did all of them in one.
Including "gritty Goldmember reboot".
So wait...is this a sequel to Wolfenstein or Wolfenstein The New Order?
The story seems to pick up directly from the ending of New Order, so probably that one.
I was honestly confused. I actually liked Wolfenstein (the one with the hub world and super powers and all that), but I guess it's basically totally non-canon at this point.
Actually that is canon, as Deathshead returned as the main villain in the New Order. Caroline also returns (now a parapelegic)

I never played the last ones (i.e. last Wolfenstein game I played was Spear of Destiny) and while they looked fun I didn't really like the Grindhouse look and feel of it. I get that this was the same time as the "GRINDHOUSE" movies and Machete and all that, so it was zeitgeisty and whatnot, but that particular subgenre was abandoned by its founders by their next films respectively, Tarantino with Inglorious Basterds (which this seems to draw inspiration from) and Rodriguez.. well he's still making Spy Kids and Machete movies but that's besides the point. If it's not Overwatch or TF2 I have a hard time getting anywhere in modern FPSs because I get pretty bored, but this one might hold my interest.
It is weird seeing so many games running at what I can assume is 4K 60fps. As real as these character designs look, the 60fps seems unnaturally fast and weird, and in its attempt to look natural things like clothing articles kinda seem stuck in lower gravity or something. I dunno, personally I didn't mind that they gave everyone buzz cuts like BJ to avoid this kind of thing in the past. When this little detail is fixed in a year or so, games like these will be looked at the same way as polygons whose mouths didn't move.

I LIKE IT!
Already the alt-reich/SQW types are all "UGH ANOTHER GAME WHERE KILLING WHITE PEOPLE IS PORTRAYED AS COOL"
You're not the first person I've seen whining about this but I've yet to see the thing you're whining about actually happen.

Oh great, a Vice article. Thanks for picking classiest clickbait site possible.
I can think of a couple of other sites that would run that kind of story, but I guess they're too low-brow for the kind of idiot that would take it seriously.
Hot damn, I love killing nazzis! I'll have to go back and play the last one since it apparently came out on the previous generation of consoles, where I still languish.

The conquest of the United States and the death of freedom are a small price to pay for a show like Liesel.
Speaking of slaughter, I've been having a lot of fun with the new Friday the 13th game.
The $40 asking price is a bit much though.
Oh shit! XCOM2 just went 60% off! Summer sale in 9 days!
Damn, thanks for the tip on the XCOM2 sale. Well-timed with finally having a computer to run it.
