Wearing a bike helmet eh?

I look very swank in my business suit, courtesy of Mr. Burke. But I'm too dumb to take screenshots.

How do you like the Underworld demo Bok?

I was looking forward to the release, but after playing through the demo I'm not that excited anymore. The controls were really bad for me especially the camera. It got stuck a lot in corners or it would just focus on Lara and not the environment and I would have to fiddle with it to see where I had to go, which wasn't smooth. Also there didn't seem to be an option for the camera to pan out (like Price of Persia), so when wall jumping in tight areas Lara would sometimes jump into the camera and cause it to spin around. Lara's movements seemed to be off to as sometimes she would jump to her death against my will. This might be because I suck, but I've played through all the recent Prince of Persia games and I could control the Prince smoothly and without problems.

The graphics and atmosphere are great though.

I know what you mean, I almost quit right in the middle of the demo since the camera sux and the jumping puzzles were tedious and I wanted to go back to playing Fallout 3

Yeah, different tune now, huh? You only spent like 12 months whining and crying about this game you'd never played. Damn you idiots annoy me. But I am the one under moderation, not you.

Yeah, shut up moderators. We need a moderator free day, let us say what we want to say for once.

I'm sorry to hear about your moderated status, but you are right. I admit my initial rantings against this game was idiotic and ill-informed. I admit my mistake. Fallout 3 is indeed a good game.

I vote for getting Mkreku off moderated status, and I do think he has a good idea. :sorcerer:

I'm interested in what those things are. So far the biggest annoyances have been the invisible walls, which I can manage, and the stupid way they've designed the difficulty levels. Hard is still too easy, but the hardest level gives enemies too much HP. First mod I want is one that tweaks the difficulty.

Just wait when you enter Vault 87 or have to fight against hordes of Enclave soldiers. Plenty of challenging fights there.

For one I don't feel immersed in the universe at all. I had the same problem with Oblivion, the way people react and the way the story is told just feels very artificial. Quests are given to me way too easily, it's like everyone trusts you after you've introduced yourself. I guess the real problem is the delivery of the dialouge.

The world feels patched together, I don't get the feeling of wandering the wastelands.

Bottomline is, I'm reminded all too often that it's a game with limitations. Most good RPGs have alot of limitations, but somehow manage to cover that up and make me feel like I can do and say anything and it'll have many different outcomes, although in the back of my mind I know that's not the case. In Fallout 3 I'm more often presented with the fact that no matter how I proceed the outcome is hardwired and I don't have any real freedom except the given 1-3 outcomes. Which is a shame, because it's not often you have so many different and good ways to solve simple sidequest.

It's kinda like watching a bad film with a really good plot. You wish that a different director and different actors had been involved with the project instead. You focus on the story and the good parts, but the bad acting and bad directing really pulls you out of simply enjoying the story.

With that said I'm not a "anti Bethesda" - "fallout-in-name-only" gamer - I was actually midly intrigued with them getting the franchise and what they could do to the fallout universe. I played Oblivion alot and found it amusing, but had some of the same problems as here. Immersion is a must for me, otherwise I get bored quick.

Final note: I am however amased with how right they got the whole design/art style. With the 50'ish fusion cars and robots etc. They did a better job here than Interplay and Black Isle imo. And Vats is really fun. :(
