    It seems like I've finally reached the high watermark mission of GTAIV: Four Leaf Clover. I can't believe I have to start back at the apartment after every death though... sucks ass.

    In Machinarium it's starting to get very tough now... very odd lateral thinking abounds in the solutions now. Part of the issue is not knowing what some of the bits and pieces are and hence how to use them - case in point: I thought the sticky tape was a length of elastic, hence I had no idea to use it like flypaper and even after I did, flies + lightbulbs is a really weird stretch.

    Finished Rage, which was completely awesome. Probably going to play Skyrim next.

    Impossible.

    It's quite easy after some practicing, watch youtube and keep trying. And then there is the hard mode, when you do it with a time limit

    It's just that bit. I'm going to give dethys method a try.

    It was another week of amazing success in Kokiville.

    First I looked up some Dark Souls gameplay. Hate to admit it, but the game looks damn nice, and much more refined than Demon's' Souls. Can't really understand all this bitching about difficulty though; I guess people either really suck at videogames or have lives and can't spend a couple of hours grinding souls. Losers! Who knows, maybe fifth game in the series will be on the PC too, I mean for japs making a game for 360 is like selling your son to a brothel so why not.

    RAGE was next. I got the game, I got the patch, I updated my video card drivers and in general I wasted a shitload of time for nothing. I don't even need to comment on the game itself here because the technical problems were enough for me to put it in my "Further Evidence That Big Industry Names Don't Mean Shit Anymore" drawer(I ran out of space in my "Evidence That Big Industry Names Don't Mean Shit Anymore" drawer). I gotta say though, for a 20GB big game it sure uninstalls in a flash, I was amazed.

    Next was SPACE MARINE. It's like a hack&slash with three moves where you're constantly swarmed by one enemy meets a cover TPP shooter where you can't take cover. Another brilliant work by Reric.

    Another informed opinion by a guy who looked at a video of the game!

    After finishing Rage last night, I am utterly disappointed in the technology behind Skyrim. On one hand I'm impressed that setting everything to low (which is the only way it will run on an 8800GT) looks better and runs better than Oblivion, but on the other hand I just played a game with huge sweeping vistas and enormous view distances that never dropped below 60FPS and looked amazing. Oh and the animation quality difference is jarring.

    Then again, this happens everytime a new Bethesbryo game comes out, and after an hour or two I've gotten to used it. The environments look interesting and ES games are all about exploring anyway.

    I also played the first mission of the MW3 campaign and I was so bored by the end of that mission that I am thinking I might not be able to handle another 5 hours. CoD 1/2/4 worked for the same reasons the Brothers In Arms games or Allied Assault are so great - they were pretty blatantly influenced by Spielberg. After CoD 4 both the Treyarch and IW developed games turned into shitty Bruckheimer movies for some reason, and I think I've finally reached the point where playing them makes me want to go do something productive instead of wasting my time. The harder Activision pushes this franchise into "yearly mindless blockbuster" territory, the more I realize that watching a typical blockbuster action film is way more rewarding. Nothing about the series seems even slightly plausible or authentic anymore, and that's sad when the early games were pretty damn close to the same level as the classic war movies.

    I can't say much for Modern Warfare (aka Michael Bay porn) but World at War and especially Black Ops are fucking fantastic, and I'll fight anyone who tries to call Black Ops a "shitty Bruckheimer movie."

    Yehh. I replayed Modern Warfare two times, it was so fresh.
    I played Modern Warfare 2 one time.
    I didn't play Black Ops.
    ...

    Why are zombies buying the same game every year I dunno, I guess because they are zombies.

    Or maybe some of us just legit enjoy the Call of Duty experience unironically, you insufferable toolbag. Who the fuck are you again? Get out.

    Whatever. I don't care what anyone says. If you play ONE fucking Call of Duty, play Black Ops. Having played them all (save MW3 -- getting to that soon) Black Ops is the best marriage of classic Call of Duty gameplay with a story that actually fucking matters. Modern Warfare? Not so fucking much.

    Black Ops had an awesome story, at least towards the end, but the actual gameplay was shit.

    Actually, I'm 2 hours into MW3 (just finished the OMG SHOCKING scene) and aside from the last mission in a warehouse where I finally had a proper CoD medium range gun battle that felt like actual combat, it's been fucking boring as hell.

    Funnily enough, after that OMG SHOCKING mission I started going HOLY SHIT THIS IS GETTING GOOD. Then I realized I was getting excited during a goddamn loading screen. Maybe it's me, but that's sort of what I see as the problem with the last 4 CoD games - exciting loading screens, then incredibly boring fucking gunplay that isn't convincing in any way whatsoever. Yeah, woo, time to shoot some incredibly shitty AI with my invincible buddies so I can get to the next cutscene. It's like a fucking morphine drip.

    It's pretty much straight up Call of Duty, so I'm not sure what you mean.

    Which almost every fucking Call of Duty has, so no points for you.

    nope.avi

    WaW doesn't, MW2 probably doesn't, and even though MW does they're nowhere near as obnoxious.

    Black Ops IS a shitty Bruckheimer movie knockoff.

    Of course, WaW has by far the least respawns out of all "modern" CoDs.

    If you don't even know something so fundamental then yeah, no point in talking to you about it.
