    • Splinter Cell: Conviction

      9 years ago

      I haven't really posted on this thing in like, forever, because...I dunno. I just don't use this site anymore... smiley2.gif

      Anyways, I felt I had to do so today.

      I got a hold of Splinter Cell: Conviction recently...and man, is it BADASS. I know a lot of people are pissed off because the series isn't what it used to be, but god damn this is one of the greatest games I have ever played. Many complaints I have heard are about how the game somewhat moves from a stealth game to an action-packed shooter.

      True, this game does make you shoot your way out of trouble quite often, especially towards the end. At one point I couldn't even tell this was supposed to be a stealth game. However, I feel it fits perfectly with the degradation of the Sam Fisher character. Fisher ain't what he used to be, because of certain plot points in recent games, and it is represented very well by this style of gameplay.

      HOWEVER, this game can still be played stealthily. The stealth action, in my opinion, has only gotten more fun and interesting since the previous games. Sure, they took out many features, but somehow, the way this game plays...it just feels so much more fluid. Yes, there are parts where you're pretty much forced to shoot your way out, but it works in such a way that shouldn't really matter to anyone. The stealth element is still there, and it's still spectacular.

      And if you like the standard Clancy storyline, then you will surely enjoy yourself, because the story, once again, in my opinion, is just awesome. Sure, it could be deeper, but in a way, the story is driven by the gameplay, and done so in such a way that just compels you to play straight through to the end.

      I read the review that Mr. Stephen Totilo posted up on Kotaku. I feel I must mention one part of this review, as I can only think of his words when I try to describe this game. At one point, he mentions that the game "involves one of the best uses of gameplay to depict rage that I've ever witnessed." I am in complete and total agreement with this statement.

      This part of the game is so intense and badass that I almost want to spoil everything right here. I won't, but you should know it when you see it. Elements like this are what makes this game a must-play. The greatness doesn't even end here, as there are a number of multiplayer and co-op modes. However, I've ranted to long.

      If anyone of my friends here still actually check up on me, and if they feel like reading my thoughts on the co-op mode, or even just discussing the single player mode, just let me know by means of a comment or message. Let me just leave you with this little tidbit from the very beginning of the game.

      "Understand this. The Sam Fisher you knew is dead."

      So. I just got Modern Warfare 2. Sunday, the 8th, at 11:30 AM EST time. Yea. I played it pretty much all damn day. I must say...it's probably...the best damn game ever. Gamestop let people who preordered it in certain areas buy it early to "protect their customer base." Well, I got it early, and I'm fuckin' loving it!

    • REEEECOOOOON!!!!

      silent_kid

      YAY!! I gotz muh Reconz! I don't have a picture of my new look right now, since Bungie doesn't want to update my last two games or new look, so yea. But when they do, I'll slap it up here and probably also make a more awesome profile picture with it using the screenshot dealio in Halo.

      Looking back on this, the hardest Vidmaster for me to get...was Lightswitch. I would lose like 3 games for every one that I won. I did Endure last night, took two hours, but was a cakewalk. Deja Vu was really easy what with the infinite rockets, and Annual was a fucking joke.

      Anyways, YAAAAAAAAY!

    • Firefight Mode

      9 years ago

      silent_kid

      So...I've been playing firefight in ODST recently...solo, on easy, so I could grind my way to 200k in each map for the achievements. Well...it's fun...but holy damn balls that catch skull is so god damn annoying. I am NOT looking forward to doing the Endure achievement. I mean, you're pretty much invincible on easy mode, but those damn grenades still get you...

      It was pretty bad when I tried playing heroic with some friends of mine... Grunts are pretty horrible, but I really hate the invisible brutes. I look slightly left, and BAM! There are seven of them. Before I can even utter the words "Oooohhh...shiiiit..." like, thirty-six effin flame grenades zip towards my face.

      Then there are those times when you're moving somewhere, and all you hear behind you is the sound of a plasma grenade landing every other millisecond, followed by thousands of detonations.

      Anyways, it's pretty crazy, but that's part of what makes it so hilariously enjoyable.

    • Those damn Halo 3 Achievements...

      9 years ago

      silent_kid

      So...I have most of the Halo 3 achievements, but I still need the sword spree and shotgun spree on Heretic and Citadel...those are proving to be a bitch.

      I also need the Lightswitch and Annual vidmaster achievements...Annual, I don't have four people to do it with, and Lightswitch...well, my team always sucks, or I play against people I can't beat.

      And as for ODST...well, I need ALL the firefight score 200k ones...cause I DON'T HAVE FOUR PEOPLE...and so that doesn't help me with Deja Vu or Endure either...blegh...

      I haven't really attempted to do the four people ones yet, but...I just wanted to rant about how many things I have to do that seem like chores, but I still really want to do...

      So. I tried to play Halo 3 today. Yea. Fucking balls. Don't even want to talk about it. Got through 5 minutes of a match before I raged out, remembered why I didn't play that game, and nearly threw my console out the damn window.

      Fucking. Balls.

      Nope! I haven't gotten it yet. Like you, I just don't have anyone to do it with. Just need two more now! I'll see what I can do about finding them.

      Like I said, forced replay value, my friend. Forced replay value.

      After all, they did get you to start playing all over again, didn't they?

    • VinE38

      What? OFFLINE co-op?! Impossible! Somebody actually thought someone might want to play a co-op game on only one console? Amazing!

      ...Seriously though. Pretty cool, I'd say.

      Sorry, I've been out of commission a while. I'm back to check things out. I'm definitely looking forward to more of your "Forced Enjoyment" previews of games. I've loved the ones posted on the main site, and I'd like to see even more of those. They are entertaining, fun, and definitely "enjoyable." See ya!

      You said in the No More Heroes thread you had a ridiculous "No More Halo" joke. Mind sharing it since I apparently didn't give you a chance in the thread?

      What do you get when a Halo fanboy attempts to play Brawl? Something like this, I assume.

      Speaking of Shadow: "How come you don't have a shadow?! That's weird!"

      Anyway, I did realize I forgot the DVD once I was halfway home last night. I'll get around to seeing it at some point.

    • VinE38

      I should tell you Gabe and I might pool our money to get a 360 of our own after Christmas. It might be an easier option if the price of your used 360 and the repairs is the same price as getting a new one.

      In any case though, chances are I'll buy your extra copy of Halo 3 anyway. It's just easier than getting it in a store.

      So.... she said that she is still going to try and make it here to be with me, but I'm definitely not going to get my hopes up. She told me this morning that she is coming "no matter what". Apparently she has a friend driving kind of towards where I live... so, we'll see. If she gets here, it will be tomorrow at about noon. Hopefully I can give you a postive updates this time.

      11 years ago

      Thanks for the support! Hopefully things will work this time. I actually got a call from her saying that she couldn't come because her gas card was frozen and she didn't have the money. Wow, I became instantly depressed.... luckily though... she got on the phone afterwards with the company and got it worked out. It looks like she'll be coming in tomorrow night now, instead of tomorrow morning. I'll keep you posted. I think you're my only support right now. Everyone else (roommates) are all telling me to give up. I figure I'll give it one more shot. Maybe everything was a blessing in disguise. We'll see..... we'll see.....

      I've been to the malls, Best Buy, Gamestop, and every chain store I can get to, and they've got nothing. As Gabe says after not finding it so many times, "I got the shaft."

      Yes, this was unnecessary, but oh so satisfying.

      I loved FMA. I own the series now (and the movie, and the soundtracks, and I'm pathetic). Great anime list. I see you have some very good tastes.

    • VinE38

      I know exactly what you're talking about, and I had a feeling you'd want one. You'll buy anything with a Halo logo in it, not that there's anything wrong with that.
