Smart man, NJX. haha.

Perhaps the worst ending in gaming history. I didnt even get to kill the bastard, because I waited too long the first time I played. So freaking anti-climactic. I hope to hell, they have something good instore, to conclude this next game.

I'm hoping to get it under $60. Excellent reviews, could get me paying full price, however.

It may see a nice drop on black friday. Like some of the October releases last year.

either way, the original was absolutely mind-blowing on release. i can see it being boring/lame now, but so much of what, say, mass effect is came as a result of half-life. even HL2 is a better looking/playing game than most of the shooters coming out now.

realistically, if you played it on a console, i can see your opinion no matter when you'd have played it. they were meant as pc games.

and, in the interest of taking some **** myself, i've thought every halo game was average at best.
I couldn't agree with this post more, from HL2 to Halo.


As for Fable 3, the only way I'd buy it first day is so I could take a **** in the case and sent it directly to Lionhead. Unless there is a major leap that actually makes it feel like a current gen game, then I'd get it pretty quick after release. Fable 1 was muuuch better than Fable 2.

I have 3 tests next week, and New Vegas on Tuesday. This is going to be difficult. I started a final F3 playthrough, but there is now way I will be able to finish it. Fallout 3, you blew my mind, I cannot believe I bought Farcry 2 over you, you were well worth the HUD bars getting burned in the corners of my 65 inch television, and those hundreds upon hundreds of hours were very well spent.

Fallout 3 was excellent and I'm not an RPG guy. Only complaint I have about the game was whenever I turned it on, I would end up playing it for hours at a time not realizing how much time has passed.

Normally with those games i just dont care for the combat systems. Oblivion was the same way, it's awesome how many options you have, and the entire areas to explore and rpg elements, but I normally just get frustrated with the combat. How are the shooting mechanics?

Not that bad, a lot better than I expected. I'm just hoping they take a step forward in New Vegas and not a step in the other direction since its being made by the ppl who made the original Fallouts which I thought were garbage.

Indeed. They only did two bads (Lionheart, Alpha Protocol), so I don't know how anyone could worry about anything those dudes put out.

I'm in the same boat about the elder scroll series. I can't stand the combat. The shooting mechanics suck in Fallout 3, and the auto targeting VATS gets boring pretty quickly, imo.

I'm not worried about New Vegas because of the engine build, and Obsidian's past involvment. But Alpha Protcol was a mess and poorly managed throughout the entire process. That thing hemorrhaged cash and was a flop of massive proportions. So I'm not too surprised that some are a little wary about New Vegas' quality.

Bethesda seems damn proud of the work Obsidian has done on it, though. So it should be a fantastic game.

Yeah, but AP also wasn't THAT bad...just extremely underwhelming and buggy. It's fairly well-documented that they just tried to do too much with that one. I had no interest in AP and knew it was going to be bad from all the marketing they put behind it, but I'm more than confident in the Black Isle/Obsidian guys.

Don't get tricked by Fable yet again. Perennially disappointing series, mediocre-to-bad action game with lots of trekking, crap for story, no rpg elements despite being labeled an rpg ...the only thing it has going for it is your character's appearance.

Alpha Protocol had some great ideas, just poor execution. The massive delays didn't help either. If they put the game out when it was supposed to, it probably would have been looked at a lot different. As it stands, it was extremely dated. From what I read, it was a near impossible situation for Obsidian. Sega constantly changed the design requirements as was far too involved. I tend to believe that to given Sega's recent track record as a publisher. They're backed/pushed out a **** ton of duds this console generation.

They've really got one of the best pedigrees of any RPG developer out there when it comes down to it, probably better than Bethesda even. Fallout 1&2 and Plancescape:Torment are absolutely seminal games and are basically the ground from which all modern western roleplaying games are built on. It's really sad to see fans of the genre not recognize the massive contribution those games gave to the genre. This isn't the first time I've heard this type of sentiment either. It's heartbreaking to watch youtube videos of Fallout 2 and then scroll down to the youtube comments and find 13 your old kids and Johnny come Latelys saying "oh lol that game has the shittest gfx it suckzzzoroz lol".

Campaign is sick but it's way too short. Me and my roommates beat it in about 5 hours which is just ridiculous for a $60 game.

Haven't played a lot online yet but it's really hard to see, at least for me. People are as big as ants and there is just something about the lighting that makes it impossible to see people.

I didn't say it was hard. I said it was fun. The NPCs are actually helpful, but not because of their shooting. Most of the time they hide behind cover and don't shoot anything. Play the generator defense mission on Legendary and you'll find yourself racking up every kill. The reason they're helpful is because they draw attention allowing me to sneak up behind Elites for assassinations, grenades or gunfire.

Solo on Legendary isn't that hard. You just need to use cover and take out enemies one by one. That, and avoid Hunters at all costs. Anytime there are Hunters I just proceed with the mission and run by them. It takes like 7487458 DMR shots in the orange back to kill one. Even if you have a power weapon they're a pain in the ***.

I'm better than most people at "point and shoot" but I have way too much ADD to cover a certain area strategically. In Halo, I can run around like a madman and still kill you way more often than you kill me.
Meh...that's what I dislike about Halo campaign. Playing it on Normal was boring because I could play like an idiot and still survive. What makes Halo campaigns so good is that the enemy AI is smart, dynamic and adaptive on harder difficulties. If I pull out a laser/sniper the enemies will hide, but if I try to rush in too close they come full throttle and engage in close combat. They flank you too. I'd love to see Bungie make a survival horror game because it would be terrifying.

COD campaign is more frustrating than fun. I didn't find it to be a matter of strategy or even skill. You basically just camp in one area, memorize where the enemies are and pick them off before they get the chance. I know that's realistic but it's not fun.

eTk thats not realistic or fun. Usually they should take cover like in halo.

Thats the one thing I wish they could combine. Ghost Recon team play with Rainbow six cover system, and Call of Duty run and gun. There some how needs to be these things with you as the player and the AI doing it combined all together. I know someone is going to say counter strike.

Funny because that pretty much describes COD's multi player too.

Gamestop is offering 30.00 for Reach, I need to hurry up and get this LT Col and get cash for that while I still can, this might be the first game I have ever traded in.

People who complain about camping and the game being unbalanced in multiplayer are just the people that aren't any good at it.
