  1. There aren't any silencers in this game, are there?
  2. Do counter-terrorists always have a diffusing kit or something? I never buy it yet I always diffuse the bomb in 5 seconds
  3. Does the Kevlar suit + helmet need to be bought? When I die and I don't buy anything, I always seem to have it.
  4. Does the Kevlar suit and/or helmet even do anything?

^ 5% health and 100% armour? Me thinks armour and/or helmet is absolutely useless

If you're not playing competetive, I think everyone has a defuse kit but I'm not sure. I know Kevlar is supposed to help, as there are weapon damage stats that take that into account, weird that you have 5 health but 100 Kevlar there. Also I think that you automatically have it in non-competitive game modes.

 

As for silencers, there aren't any yet. They said they were adding them, but this was back in November.

Ah okay. I was playing some bots on the bus so that's probably why. I usually don't play competitively since my reflexes aren't all that great and I don't like grenade spamming the first 20 seconds of the game.

There are also community servers, which can provide some of the competitive elements(friendly fire, no Kevlar by default, etc...) without having to play an entire match.

Dark Souls =9/10

Kerbal Space program =9/10

Mark of the Ninja =9/10

 

I don't give out 9's that often.

 

But of course, this is using the standard scale.

Im looking forward for this man. Skyrim with all their DLC's was a lot of fun, can't imagine this.

Skryim is a snore fest. Hopefully ESO is more fun.

+1 with the more fun part. 

 

I hope that the closed beta doesn't release for another year. I much prefer to wait and have a fun and polished experience than rushed and reused leftovers. Few of the MMOs in the past decade have really brought much to the table. Hopefully it's live action combat. Tab target button smashing is not going to cut it anymore. I'm going in expecting that same old crap. That way I can be delightfully surprised rather than painfully disappointed.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - 0/10
I bought Deus Ex and realized why I never bought it before - really bad case of nausea. Ugh. Waste of money. In the brief bit introduction before nausea kicked in, stealth felt absolutely arbitrary, AI didn't really detect anything, shooting was inaccurate, cover/uncover controls were off, general mouse aim felt wrong, FOV was really limited, and the story was pretty interesting.


Strike Suit Zero - 4/10
I thought it would be fun, but the missions are really repetitive, gameplay is really easy, there's too much flashiness going on in the screen, controls are wonky since I've been playing actual flight games, and while the voice acting is pretty good, the story still feels really scripted and the dialog feels off. Can't complain for $8 I guess, the soundtrack is decent.

Oh god if it's anything like existing MMOs, you can count me out. I'm hoping it's more like Dark Souls, but knowing Bethesda that's extremely unlikely. I'll just wait for Dark Souls 2.

Mount & Blade: Warband 7/10

I picked this on during the steam summer sale. I have only played a few hours. The controls can be a little awkward (ie targetting, large map movement) but I will get use to them. I love the concept of the game such as recruiting people from towns to join my crew or strong arming towns to feed and supply my men. I have only played a few hours but enjoyed myself so far and worth the money I paid.

 

One con is pathing on the overview map for the  Escort Caravan and Herd Cattle quests. Pathing is terrible and I continue to fail these missions. So I just raid towns and caravans now :).

 

Like I said only played a few hours so will update my rating after getting deeper into the game.

Finished 2 games recently, here is my personal rating:

 

The Last of Us

 

Gameplay : 8.5

Story : 10

Audio : 9

Visual : 10

Replayability : 9

 

Overall : 9.3 (Average of the 5 scores above)

 

The hot issue currently going on for the last few weeks since its launch, TLOU for me has delivered. Have a few quirks such as the AI between ally and enemies that hinders the tense environment it creates although not by much. Storywise this is one of the best and people everywhere surely predicts a second installment due to the ending although not little also hopes there are no second part to this story.

 

All in all, personally I would hope that they don't continue the series because TLOU has done so much that I am afraid that a sequel might ruin the franchise. I hope ND can come up with another amazing game for the next gen console.

 

Final Fantasy XIII-2

 

Gameplay : 7.5

Story : 8.5

Audio : 9

Visual : 8

Replayability : 8.5

 

Overall : 8.3 (Average of the 5 scores above)

 

I remember I asked whether I should play XIII-2 in this forum after the disappointing and linear XIII, in the end I gave it a chance and to my disbelief I am intrigued by XIII-2. Surely if it has more polished visuals like XIII the score would be higher but due to its short development time compared to XIII I could understand. It has a more likeable villain in Caius Ballad, interesting characters and also for me good tracks for listening. Also we can travel to towns now although still not as free as previous installments and also the paradox endings also gives a unique way of rising its replayability.

 

If Square could pull off Lightning Returns storywise and its gameplay, I think the FF XIII series could be redeemed.

Also looking forward to dark souls 2.

The combat of upcoming MMOs needs to at least be at Tera's level for me to find the gameplay worth my time.

I'm 23 hours into Dark Souls right now. Absolutely terribly amazing and evil game.

 

I have never raged at a game before. I can't use the word never now.

Yeah, it is. Terrible as in ability to cause terror. Then yeah. 

post #3720 of 4486

Yeah, I've got like 140 hours clocked on Dark Souls, playing through the DLC right now in NG+

 

I have a bunch of games in my backlog but I just keep coming back to Dark Souls. Everything else is so uninspiring to me now. Nothing holds my interest like DkS does.
