I think Mirrors edge has to be one of the few games that doesn't lie to you with that kind of **** .

Hm i'm playing through ac3 now. Are you saying this is not a possibility?
User avatar #8 - ReaLCooLGuY (02/13/2013) [-]
That's how I felt with AC3. I actually thought I would be able to run on the battlefield and **** **** up.

Every Call of Duty game?

I liked Dead Island
#110 to #65 - noschool (02/14/2013) [-]
to be fair the game was ok but the trailer set up expectations that were not even closely met by the gameplay.
User avatar #117 to #110 - zionsype ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
I liked the gameplay a lot better than the trailer actually

WarZ cannot be classified as a game.

Don't forget Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Gameplay was excellent, but as far as graphics are concerned, it was a huge letdown

Assassin's Creed 3 wasn't bad, (Well, maybe the story was) it was just old.

User avatar #57 to #15 - flyingfrogslash (02/14/2013) [-]
I will be honest. 3 was my least favorite of the Assassin's Creed games. Part of what I loved about assassin's creed (aside from stabbing people in the face with hidden blades and daggers) was the story and how they told it. To me, it just seemed like 3 failed to deliver on that front.
User avatar #60 to #57 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
I agree with you a hundred percent. Right before the second one came out, I told myself that even if the game was crap I would still get it just for the story. Assassin's Creed 3 was so very disappointing in that regard, and that's probably the main why the game was so forgettable

I'm assuming you played DE on a console or on a pc with low settings. I'm not saying that's bad, but it has a patch on the pc that makes it look great
User avatar #126 to #71 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
Thanks for making me regret not buying it when it was on sale on Steam

The landscapes were amazing though. I literally spent hours in the woods, just doing hunting missions.

Sorry, thought I replied to the wrong person, but I was right the first time.
User avatar #29 to #26 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
I agree, the landscape was amazing, and I enjoyed it. However, I didn't give a single **** about the hunting missions, the homestead missions, or, really, anything that didn't involve smacking some poor sap with a tomahawk.
User avatar #35 to #29 - simbasa (02/14/2013) [-]
I liked it more because it was a change of pace. Don't get me wrong, I love running into a group of guards and just killing everyone in my way, but sometimes you just gotta go toe-to-toe with a couple bears.

wasnt deus Ex trailer live action? how can you make games look like that
User avatar #24 to #21 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
No, I think you're thinking of something else
User avatar #27 to #24 - contradiction (02/14/2013) [-]
look up deus ex live action trailer, i know they made one. but the graphics on that were fine, people have way too high a standard for graphics now.
User avatar #33 to #27 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
Ah, you're right. My mistake, but I was referring to this one.

Also, it's not about high standards. As time passes and technology advances, you come to expect a certain quality. No, the graphics weren't terrible, but when you show off a badass trailer like the one above, and give me a game with subpar graphics, compared to almost everything else, I'm going to be disappointed
User avatar #36 to #33 - contradiction (02/14/2013) [-]
then you must be disappointing in many games, all trailers are much better looking then the actual game. "with advancements in technology" take in consideration everything from game mechanics and other things. game consoles are outdated as **** and thats why games are dumbed down for it. deus ex had perfectly fine graphics, were you expecting something like crysis?
User avatar #40 to #36 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
You don't understand. I know that games don't normally look like their launch trailers. What I'm saying is that the gap between the quality of the trailer and the quality of the game was too big. Most other games don't do that
User avatar #41 to #40 - contradiction (02/14/2013) [-]
my answer is that you were expecting too much, for me the graphics were fine.
User avatar #46 to #41 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
How was I expecting too much? Skyrim's reveal trailer was visually great, and the game was only slightly worse. The same can be said for the Uncharted series, God of War III, Prototype 2, and Assassin's Creed. The Deus Ex trailer rates a 10 in visuals and the actual gameplay a 5. I wasn't expecting too much, I was just expecting something better
User avatar #47 to #46 - contradiction (02/14/2013) [-]
well i saw the trailer and i thought the game was fine. maybe because i really don't care for graphics too much.
User avatar #48 to #47 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
Like I said, I thought the game was great, as well. I loved it and played through it nonstop, several times. The graphics were just my biggest complaint with the overall game.
User avatar #49 to #48 - contradiction (02/14/2013) [-]
i never said you didnt like the game, but whatever. lets just agree that deus ex was an awesome game
User avatar #50 to #49 - oodlesandoodles ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
Agreed

I rather liked force unleashed, i especially liked Galen Marek (starkiller) the thing i hated was that the second game was way too short
User avatar #122 to #90 - reican ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
that's the thing, it was too short.

The best example of this has to be Dead Island.

Even though this is true on so many levels, I still believe that bioshock infinite is going to be one of the best games of 2013.

Tomb Raider for me

User avatar #31 to #28 - calawesome (02/14/2013) [-]
Yeah, how is Dead Space3?....I would've thought the horror side is diminished by the introduction of a sidekick, ala resident evil 5. Is it as good as DS2?
User avatar #32 to #31 - floofy (02/14/2013) [-]
so far dead space 3 has been my favorite of the series but i have gotten those limited edition cheater weapons.

i just like the way the game plays in the new one compared to the others everythings flows better.

so far there hasnt been much horror just a lot of story set up but things are sure a hell of a lot darker
User avatar #34 to #32 - calawesome (02/14/2013) [-]
And what's the world like?....is it as beautiful as the SPRAWL was?
#80 to #34 - zxxxmightyxxx (02/14/2013) [-]
oh yeah man, its diverse. You have Dead Space 1 vibe in a certain area, the other moment its more like open, kinda like Lost Planet. Seriously, all the new features, the replayability, I'd say, after playing all Dead Spaces, that it is the best one. Contrary to what critics says, i found the story to be really awesome. I was flabbergasted a couple of time.    
   
tl;dr Dead Space 3 is awesome   
   
Pic related it is the awesomness that i felt playing Dead Space 3

if you've finished it...do you get to play the other guy's story after you beat Isaac's..I've heard they're different in some ways.
User avatar #113 to #111 - zxxxmightyxxx (02/14/2013) [-]
you need a friend to host the game
User avatar #115 to #113 - calawesome (02/14/2013) [-]
so you can't play as the other character at all in single player?
User avatar #2 - classicvictory (02/13/2013) [-]
i guessing this is referring to aliens colonial marines?
User avatar #3 to #2 - commandrbob (02/13/2013) [-]
i hope not, i freaking love that game! And i've only had it a day
User avatar #6 to #3 - mcqwark (02/13/2013) [-]
It most likely is. It doesn't matter if you love the game, the side by side comparison of the Demo they showed and the actual game was just... Terrible...
User avatar #7 to #6 - commandrbob (02/13/2013) [-]
well yeah, fair point.
User avatar #9 to #7 - raidan (02/13/2013) [-]
All I'm going to say is, if I had bought it with the intention of playing it myself, I would be horribly disappointed. I think the only reason I'm enjoying it is because I'm playing with friends through co-op and **** kinda gets out of hand with them...
User avatar #10 to #9 - commandrbob (02/13/2013) [-]
oh yeah its a great game to play with some mates, I will admit its kinda stupid otherwise
User avatar #16 to #10 - repostforlife ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
I don't play that game with friends anymore, the pricks will LET a xeno get on me and won't tell me(I ******* love those bastards)
User avatar #73 to #16 - raidan (02/14/2013) [-]
I think I've killed my team more than the xeno's have. Once I found the flamethrower, I started to purge everything that looked at me funny, including my friends. I would of made the adeptus sororitas proud, usuing the flamer the way I did.
User avatar #76 to #73 - repostforlife ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
best thing to do? throw a frag behind them THEN throw one infront of them so they see that one and run back, into the other grenade I threw

Bioshock Infinite seems to be doing everything right then. Except for the pushbacks.
