Noscope double street cross. Conan clearly knows what he's doing.

Hi down there Oscar! and yes, 7:18 is definitely frogger :)

That guy - 2014-11-05


Oscar Wildcat - 2014-11-04

Frogger. That's all I'm sayin'.

Nikon - 2014-11-04

The difference is that Frogger was a good game.

infinite zest - 2014-11-04

Yeah. From what I've seen of this game so far (mainly this, the other funeral video and one other part I clicked on via youtube) it looks very boring and linear. I think my favorite "realistic" FPS was Soldier of Fortune. And since that happened, like 15 years ago, I'd rather stick with games like Starsiege Tribes where I can do cool stuff.

SolRo - 2014-11-04

It's getting decent reviews (*for a CoD game) actually, though I won't buy it until it's on sale for .

Spec Ops: The Line is supposed to be a decent recent shooter game

Adham Nu'man - 2014-11-04

It's getting good reviews because they paid for good reviews. Strangely enough nobody has threatened to shoot up Activision because "ethics in gaming journalism" only applies to women making obscure indie games or video reviews on youtube.

Nikon - 2014-11-04

I thought they were going after Gawker (as in all of it).

EvilHomer - 2014-11-04

Soldier of Fortune was awesome because you could shoot people in the nads.

bongoprophet - 2014-11-04

Spec Ops: The Line is a hidden gem and I recommend anyone to get it since it is on sale on steam for 5 /$ all of the time.

Without venturing into spoiler territory, it is kinda what Unforgiven was to the Western genre, in terms of narrative.

infinite zest - 2014-11-04

Yeah I loved how you could sit there for a minute making some bad guy crumble apart like a gingerbread man, and his buddy's still sitting there right around the corner and acts surprised when he sees you.

infinite zest - 2014-11-04

Kinda unrelated but someone in my house left behind her Xbox 360 because she's taking a year abroad, and all everyone uses it for is Netflix and youtube videos. Is there a single FPS that captures the fun of a game like Bond for the N64?

jreid - 2014-11-04

My problem with Spec Ops: The Line is it was a really great movie script crammed into the husk of a generic, boring, linear modern warfare shooter.

SolRo - 2014-11-04

FarCry 3 is supposed to be good shooter fun.

Borderlands as well.

If you mean split-screen; nothing. Split-screen is dead.

Adham Nu'man - 2014-11-04

Far Cry 3 is a brotastic, racist, stupid piece of shit trapped inside the shell of the most fantastic shooter ever.

EvilHomer - 2014-11-04

Yeah, the whole FarCry series is pretty good, and Borderlands is balls-out awesome. They're both sandbox/RPG FPS games, though; if you're looking for a more traditional level grind a-la CoD or Soldier of Fortune, then Battlefield/ Bad Company and FEAR are nice franchises to check out. Battlefield is CoD with large maps, destructible environments, and fully controllable vehicles (including tanks and helicopters), while FEAR is an old school FPS with awesome enemy AI and some of the creepiest level design outside of Shalebridge Cradle.

CoD had some really nice split-screen co-op gameplay, though. I don't know if this one does, but MW2 and some of the others, can't even remember their names, are fun if you have a friend over and play the co-op missions.

Adham Nu'man - 2014-11-04

Also if you haven't played games since that N64 Bond Game: Portal and Half Life 2.

Hooker - 2014-11-04

I only played the first Far Cry and I am baffled as to how that could be considered an RPG.

infinite zest - 2014-11-04

Thanks! I've played games post-Bond up until the Dreamcast died and Sega stopped giving me money

SolRo - 2014-11-04

I haven't played any farcry but afaik the 3rd game has little to do with the 1st.

EvilHomer - 2014-11-05

RPG-lite. There are optional side-quests, leveling up mechanics, inventory management, and in FarCry 2 and 3, some "party" and (fairly stupid) "moral" choices that alter the storyline of the game. They're like Fallout or Boiling Point stripped of any and all non-combat perks and non-gun inventory concerns; somewhere below STALKER and above the first Crysis so far as their level of RPGness is concerned.

Hyuna BubblePop - 2014-11-05

@Adham Nu'man you clearly missed the satire of Far Cry 3. It's a critique on video games. You apparently are also a clueless gamer.

Adham Nu'man - 2014-11-05


That's what they've claimed. Seems to me very much like Tommy Wiseau claiming the same thing of the room post-facto mockery from the online community.

To me it's just a retarded mess of a game written by an idiot. Still, it's one of the best shooters I've ever played, so I'd recommend it either way.

GravidWithHate - 2014-11-05

@Adham Nu'man: I think that in Far Cry 3 the intent is fairly clear from the game: The fact that your nickname is "Snow White"; the Alice in Wonderland quotes; the repeated drug-induced hallucination sequences; the magic compass; and the history and nature of the island itself (Galapagos Tortoises and Komodo Dragons?) all suggest that maybe the events and world this game is presenting to you aren't exactly to be trusted.

The game presents the player with a fantasy, set in a fantasy world, where you turn yourself into this ultimate badass for revenge, power, and sex, and starts asking what that fantasy can motivate you to do. By the end the game has you torturing your brother and being willing to abandon your entire life, and it seems reasonable enough.

This is not to say it's without it's problems, and I'm not sure it succeeded at being a deconstruction of a fantasy well enough to justify the use of racial stereotyping and unfortunate invocation of the white savior tropes. Still, I don't think it's fair to say they were just making lazy use of cliches.

Adham Nu'man - 2014-11-06

There is a lot of stupid shit in the game yes, I think it's all an excuse to fuel the action, which is great. Not buying there's some deeper metanarrative.

Maybe I'm wrong and I didn't get it, I'm getting old.

Old_Zircon - 2014-11-04

So it takes around 10 machine gun bullets at close range to knock over a carton of milk?

Nikon - 2014-11-04

Whole milk is heavier.

Adham Nu'man - 2014-11-04

Nominal - 2014-11-04

So is CoD so big - the biggest game he's done so far - that they left out his usual score system at the end because they were so afraid of losing advertising?

Nikon - 2014-11-04

Press X to pay respects.
