You think that's bad?

You know nothing of video game cruelty.

That's was on steam sale yesterday for $7.50 USD

I was upset because right now I'm tight for money and couldn't get it
User avatar #363 to #117 - majortomcomics (05/06/2013) [-]
But in that game, there's really no way out. A lot of the time, they're asking for it.

WHite Phosphorous.
Didn't even think twice, until I saw what I had done. And I realized I am a terrible person capable of doing some ****** up **** , like leaving a man trapped under a truck to burn to death(he deserved that).
User avatar #175 to #174 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Yeah. My first thought upon seeing the white phosphorous display was "Why the **** do games think it's fun to shoot from behind a computer? Come on." Then I realized what was happening.

I love how some of them were still hopelessly crawling around,
just to make sure you felt like a giant douche.
User avatar #183 to #179 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Yeah. The nigh-photorealistic graphics didn't help either.

User avatar #171 to #170 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Yes it was. Definitely underappreciated.
User avatar #177 to #171 - emazegenociide (05/06/2013) [-]
Agreed, I enjoyed this singleplayer more than the new CoDs... I played the demo when it first came out and thought to myself it would be a good buy but couldn't because I didn't have any Microsoft Points at that time so I couldn't buy it... well I found myself with some and decided to buy it, best investment ever on the Xbox
User avatar #181 to #177 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Spec Ops was the biggest middle-finger to the CoD and Battlefield franchises that anyone could have possibly given in the form of a video game.
User avatar #187 to #181 - emazegenociide (05/06/2013) [-]
I can't wait until Battlefield gets its **** together and gets a better team multiplayer (as is I can have more than 3 [or whatever it is] friends play with me) so I can drop CoD and stick with Battlefield and Halo.

But yeah, all of this went downhill after CoD 4, little by little it has gotten worse until here we are, with honestly a joke of a game, if it weren't for all my friends who play it, I never would have got it. I have over 70 games that I have stocked up, I'm sure I could find a better use for my time when I get back from college and baseball to play than Black Ops 2
User avatar #189 to #187 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
No CoDs have been worth playing since 4, in my honest opinion. I'm just not that into recent military shooters, really. The campaigns are short, boring, and cliched, and the multiplayer is never anything innovating.
User avatar #195 to #189 - emazegenociide (05/06/2013) [-]
The single player pisses me off, and if they even think of bringing back Soap in Ghosts, I might flip a **** .
User avatar #119 to #117 - iwaspromisedcake (05/06/2013) [-]
Was thinking about picking this game up pre-owned. What's your opinion on it?
User avatar #242 to #119 - koobzacc (05/06/2013) [-]
it was on steam for like 8 bucks yesterday T_T
User avatar #120 to #119 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
It's got an excellent singleplayer campaign with tight gameplay and a truly compelling plot. However, it's kind of short, clocking in for me at 5 hours on the hardest difficulty. It does have pretty decent replayability, featuring four endings which change based not only on the choice you make at the end, but choices you make during the campaign. The multiplayer is **** and not worth mentioning. All in all, I'd pay anywhere between $20 and $30 for it.
User avatar #151 to #120 - BmanX (05/06/2013) [-]
Actually, your choices during the game don't affect the ending at all. I think they show some flashback and stuff, but the ending you get is based solely on what you do at the end. That said, this is definitely an awesome game. Just finished beating it on the hardest difficulty last week.
User avatar #152 to #151 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
The main choice that matters is what decision you make during the situation with the hanging hostages under the highway. That will change what flashbacks and dialogue you get during your ending cutscene. It's true that your specific ending is determined mostly by the choice you make right at the end, but it is affected by other decisions.
User avatar #155 to #152 - BmanX (05/06/2013) [-]
Yeah, but not really. You either shoot yourself (or get him to shoot you) or him, and if you choose him, what you do during the epilogue determines one of the last 3 endings. The actual ending itself isn't affected by other choices.
User avatar #157 to #155 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Right. The differences are minor, but they're still there.
User avatar #140 to #120 - jafkdb (05/06/2013) [-]
I still don't understand why the old general kills all the Brits at the end of the game.
User avatar #141 to #140 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
What brits?
User avatar #143 to #141 - jafkdb (05/06/2013) [-]
At the end of a mission towards the end of the game, you're walking up to a helicopter with a hard drive you just got, and Shepard shoots you in the face and then kills Ghost, and throws you in a trench and lights everyone on fire. Why?

(Also, I thought you're character for that part was from the SAS, which would make him British.)

Getting rid of loose ends
User avatar #433 to #199 - jafkdb (05/07/2013) [-]
How were they loose ends, he wasn't doing anything wrong? He made some speech about recruitment being up, and it just didnt make any sense to me.
User avatar #438 to #433 - savirleo (05/07/2013) [-]
I might be wrong, but I think Shepard wanted to continue the war, to increase the army, seeing as to how he lost so many in CoD4. The module was needed to find Makarov. Ghost and the other members that were there knew that he had been given the module, but Shepard could claim that it was never there. You also find out he is not your ally right there, and with, I think Price, saying not to trust him, that it was a trap
User avatar #144 to #143 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Wrong game dog

We're talking about Spec Ops here
User avatar #146 to #144 - jafkdb (05/06/2013) [-]
That's what I get for only reading some of the comments I guess. Started with a COD conversation, then I saw you say it had a great plot, and I had to ask. My mistake.
User avatar #150 to #146 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
If you haven't played The Line, though, I'd highly recommend it.
User avatar #149 to #146 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Yeah, no problem.
User avatar #121 to #120 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
You are not talking about FUBAR dificulty man... i beat it at veteran on like 4hs, but FUBAR is ******* imposible. you get killed with one shot the helicopter scene in the museum took me over 50 tries.
It's a lot like COD but with a great plot as he said.
i've played it 3 times single player, feel guilty no matter what you do.
User avatar #153 to #121 - BmanX (05/06/2013) [-]
I heard that helicopter part was hard but I somehow did it in one go on FUBAR (though not the shootout leading up to that). It just refilled my health, so to speak, at certain points and I never had any trouble with it because of that.
User avatar #167 to #153 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
even in normal it was hard...
That ****** catches you no mater what!
User avatar #253 to #167 - BmanX (05/06/2013) [-]
I don't know but on FUBAR, did it one go. Don't exactly remember how it went on Normal and Veteran, though I think I died a few times because I didn't know where to go. I guess I just got lucky. That said, I had enough troubles elsewhere on FUBAR. I abandoned the game for months because I couldn't do the beginning of Chapter 6 on FUBAR. Came back last week, and did it in two tries. -_-
User avatar #186 to #167 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
I didn't have any trouble on Veteran.
User avatar #122 to #121 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
I set it at Veteran. I don't recall their being a higher one. Hm. I should pay more attention. Do you unlock FUBAR after beating the campaign or something?
User avatar #126 to #122 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
Yup, idk if you have to beat it at veteran only or if it works with medium too but it's there.
i wouldn't recomend you playing it like that tho... it's not about skills it's about patience you just play each "scene" untill you know exactly how each enemy is going to react to whatever it is you do and know exactly when and were to shoot. Because you die from 1 shot. and enemies are a bit smarter.
User avatar #129 to #126 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Yeah, that just sounds unfun, and that's from a veteran Dark Souls player.
User avatar #134 to #129 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
I have Dark Souls, and a friend keeps insisting on me to play it, but i played the intro scene's and it just didn't seem like my kind of game...i prefer different RPG'S
He got to a part that there's two bosses a big one and a small one that throws ligthings or something and he had to format his pc..
User avatar #139 to #134 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
That would be Ornstein & Smough. They're famously difficult.

Dark Souls is different from any other action/RPG I've played, really. It puts an emphasis on combat rather than story, without abandoning a deep RPG system. The combat itself is much slower-paced and more tactical than most other games. There's also the legendary difficulty, which is somewhat of a fallacy; it's a very punishing game. It doesn't let you make mistakes and live. However, if you don't **** up, it's really not that hard. It just demands a level of caution and patience that most gamers today lack. If you can get into it (and most can't), it's an extremely rewarding experience, with a very rich story, even if it takes a backseat to the gameplay.
User avatar #154 to #139 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
i love a good story... but i hate being constantly aware of every move i make, i know it's skills and everything, but sometimes you just want to enjoy the ride.
I'll play it once im done with fallout 3, poStal 2, and maybe the bioshock games (i have all 3 to play )
User avatar #156 to #154 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
I know what you mean. It's definitely a unique game, and it's just not to some people's tastes. Absolutely worth trying, though, if you're on the fence.
User avatar #165 to #156 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
yeah besides i have my friend constantly reminding me how i'm not a true gamer unless i beat that game... xD he'll stop now that he has to start from scratch.
User avatar #166 to #165 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
Has he beaten it before?
User avatar #168 to #166 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
No he got to that part of the two bosses and had to reboot.
He's playing Bioshock infinite now i think.
But my favourite RPG games (as an ad&d player) are Neverwinter nights 1&2 and Dragon Age 1(expansion and 2 are wayyyy too easy),
NWN is all about d&d rules and i love that even if it's 3.5 rules and i play 2.0
User avatar #169 to #168 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
I was a big fan of both Dragon Age games.

I'm also a DnD player, but I tend to prefer Pathfinder and 3.5.
User avatar #176 to #169 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
Well, me and my friends modded 2.0 (because that's what's so great about it) and addd skills and prestigie classes, i have my own world, with kingdoms, quests and even minor npc's like a monk or a simple soldier with backstories, i've created my own gods (even tho quite stolen from different mythologys) different kingdoms, different towns, i am yet to create a full city map, but i have my world map (i made it with Heroes 3 of might and magic map maker) i was thinking about using AoE2 to make the city maps.
User avatar #178 to #176 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
That's pretty badass. You should upload a compendium of your world online or something, so other people can run campaigns in it.
User avatar #198 to #178 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
One of the guys wrote a book, but i have everything on paper. when i transport it into pc and complete it (i'm very thorough about details) i will upload it.
User avatar #203 to #198 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
A book? That's intense stuff. You guys must play a lot. My group can only meet once a week, and not even always that.
User avatar #214 to #203 - GnRNoD (05/06/2013) [-]
twice a week if we can, but we had some spare time in the past.
When me and a friend started playing it the DM had so much expirience that we fell in love with the game.
I had a barbarian... first quest we go out on, go hunting cross and old guy, ask him if he has seen a caravan going by, he tells me to go away, go signal the others go back ask him again "why should i tell you anything?" -.-' because... i have an axe? stands up i lay a critical hit on him 94% crit, he survives it, i brake his hip, he starts casting a spell our mage uses detect spell, it's fireball "GET ON THE GROUND" i hit him again, we score the same initiative he casts fireball (i was lvl 1) i hit him when the fireball goes up our mage had cast magic proyectile and scored a lower initiative we took down a lvl 8 mage being lvl 1... the DM couldn't believe it, i thougth i had done something wrong but he told me that considering i was playing a barbarian i played my char perfectly.
User avatar #217 to #214 - slandersalamander (05/06/2013) [-]
That's impressive. Best I've done as far as unlikely feats go is beating a level 7 stone giant as a level 3 monk, along with a level 3 fighter.
