  1. Oh, don't get me wrong.. the game looks fun and I still want to play it. It's just that I expected the hand to hand to be...cooler? and I don't really like the cone of fire style crosshairs. That's really the main issues I have with the game. The invisibility thing can be avoided. The dialogue system looks great, as does the entire concept of the game. I'm just saying that I was kind of expecting a realistic but in a fun way (a la MGS4. Not trying to compare the two, but I'm saying I thought the style would be the same.) But it turns out it's going for a more arcade style.

  2. Oh and, the Jews couldn't avoid a genocide because the borders were closed to them and it's hard to get out of Europe when almost all of it is occupied by Nazis. Duh.



    lol, your trolling is so obvious that I just had to ignore it and respond. :)







    Errr, sorry, I meant that it was so obvious that I felt the need to ignore the fact that he is a troll and respond as if he wasn't one. It's weird.



    But anyway, At this point after reading his latest response, I think it's best if we don't talk to him. Then he'll go away. :)

  3. Oh, so I can't complain about games I'm not going to buy, then?


    Yeah, I mean really, unless someone was constantly nagging you to buy it. What person goes on a forum for the game just to complain about it when they're not even going to buy it?


    And? You don't have to commit crimes in GTA either.


    Uhh, then don't if you don't want to. But consider the whole point of GTA is to look at things from a criminal's point of view.that's why people buy it.


    Ugh, yeah, all religious folks are "fundamentalists" and "trolls." Why do you insist on this persecution?


    When did I ever say all religious people are fundamentalists? Find where I specifically said that. I myself am religious, for the record, but let's not change the topic.


    And of course, good and evil are all relative, right? Like, hey, to some people, Hitler was good and Lenin was evil, so it's obviously "relative." Rolling my eyes again.


    Yeah, pretty much. If some people didn't think Hitler or Lenin were doing what they thought was good, those two people would have NEVER gotten as far as they did and committed their crimes against humanity. To their followers, he was good. Does that mean I agree with them? Not at all. All it means is that what someone sees as good is almost always seen as bad by someone else, and vice versa.


    Meanwhile, you go on a forum for a game you don't even plan to buy just to harass the members in a condescending and completely immature and un-knowledgeable manner.


    This thread is probably going to be locked soon.

  4. Isn't that a rather slippery slope? First it's "just a game" then it's "just television" then it's "just news" then it's "just politics" and before you know it it's "just genocide."


    Only difference is that you can completely avoid a video game if you don't like the content. If the game seems terrible to you, don't buy it. For someone who tries to have an intelligent conversation, I don't understand why you haven't made that realization already. And like I said, you don't have to have sex with anyone in the game. And there is no "good" or "bad" side, which is why there are no bars. You seem like a fundamentalist, a troll by nature, not by purpose. Only a fundamentalist would choose to side with the clearly defined "good" side, when in fact, good and evil is relative to the observer as I mentioned before. Or maybe you're not a fundamentalist, rather just another troll.

  5. And it's not like they force you to have sex in the game. That's purely player choice. And the reason there's no bars for good vs bad is because there really is no good or bad, it is all relative to the observer, which is the point Obsidian is trying to make. To me, good might mean working for the CIA while to someone else it could mean getting revenge on them for not treating you right. If you want to be good in the game you just do what you feel is good, if you want to be bad, then you do what you feel is bad. Just like real life. :p

  6. Yes, but this is a 3D caves. With spies. In fact, it's probably a 3D spy-cave full of crates for you to hide behind during an intense spy fire-fight.


    A 3D spy cave with spies full of spy crates used to hide behind during spy firefights while spying?



  7. I know what that's from.


    It's during a CQC clip from the GTTV episode when Mike is fighting a baddie, then kneels awkwardly and the baddie turns around and seems to forget that he is there. Struck me as a bit odd.


    It's the sort of thing that happens in games all the time (AI acts funny when the player is dead because it's kind of irrelevant), but, like with the funky nade in the other trailer, one can't help but wonder why it's in the promo footage.


    Mike isn't dead in the clip, though. He just kneels down, then hits the guy again.


    Wait, I always interpreted at as Mike ducking under a punch by the thug, who's momentum makes him spin around while Mike attacks...

  8. But anyway, at the current state it's in, the graphics of AP are great. Not top notch or anything, but why does it need to be?


    It would certainly help, since gamers in general and critics particularly tend to be superficial. I mean, when was the last time the critics mostly agreed that a game was pretty yet utterly devoid of other positive qualities? Crysis was a tech demo on steroids and it got a metacritic of 91, for crying out loud.


    Mass Effect got away with having good character/weapon models and blocky environments though, so maybe AP can follow in that regard.


    Well, Crysis had some fun gameplay as well as future graphics from outer space. But I guess you're right, it would help sales... I'm just pointing out that a great game doesn't need great graphics, and that people shouldn't be discouraged from this game because of the visuals, especially since Obsidian is going out on a limb and trying something new.

  9. I don't see the problem. The first picture isn't bad, the second picture looks great.


    Personally, I don't care about graphics as long as they look clean (meaning everything is clearly defined, not all blended together and dull, for lack of a better explanation) For example, Max Payne and Far Cry 2. Both games look great, the first being really old, the second just looks great on low settings. Crysis however, looks horrible on low settings, in my opinion, simply because everything looks exactly like everything else (at least to me) to the point where it affected gameplay for me. Then again, one of Crysis' main goal was graphics, unlike the other games I mentioned. But anyway, at the current state it's in, the graphics of AP are great. Not top notch or anything, but why does it need to be?

  10. Yeah, let's hope Obs isn't going for an Agent Smith monotone... that would be a disaster. :p


    Actually, Hugo Weaving had a very memorable pattern of speech *and* a certain rolling growl to his voice that made the character stand out. I wouldn't call his performance monotone (and indeed, if you listen closely, the pitch of his voice often changes within a single line).


    Hmm... I see what you mean. I guess what I should say is that an Agent Smith voice acting style wouldn't do a protagonist character much justice. Anyway, I guess Obsidian is going for a greenhorn/newbie voice for MT, since he IS a new agent, now that I think about it.

  11. I like to think it's because the VA hasn't been fully mastered and processed. Honestly the snippets of dialogue we've heard from Mike have not blown me away.


    I have a slightly buzzed Saturday night theory on voice acting. A good lead must either be emotive and have a dynamic range in their delivery or their voice must have some kind of interesting texture (like an accent or gravelly monotone characteristic of badasses). Obviously both is a plus. A voice that is crystal clear and devoid of expression isn't interesting to listen to, and that's kind of what MT sounds like so far.


    That said, if he goes on to speak in 7 different languages perfectly and takes on different accents during every mission, I'll cut him some slack.


    Yeah, let's hope Obs isn't going for an Agent Smith monotone... that would be a disaster. :)
