  1. Uh...


    1) Rush up to beneath his tower where he cant get you and lob incendiary grenades into his position.

    2) Use the tower and snipe him.

    3) Get him normally fromd istance with Assault Rifle or Chain Shot


    Lots of choices.

    1) And when you run out of grenades? I had a maximum of 6 incendiary grenades and I threw them all into the tower. His health barely went down to half. Then it was back to the drawing board and going to approach 3.

    2) Yup

    3) Like I didn't try this approach first. Of course having grenades thrown your way every 2 seconds and respawning enemies flanking you while you're dodging the grenades is amazingly effective in trying to kill Darcy, who only pops his head out every 5 minutes.


    What I'm trying to say is that sniping him seems like the easiest and most effective method that once someone discovers this approach why would they bother with the other 2?

  2. I'm afraid it doesn't get better, it just gets continuously worse and worse. There were very few moments so far that have been ever mildly interesting(the story is bland, the characters are bland, and the VA are downright bad).


    I'm on the last part with Darcy and I'm so bored I just want to break my controller and then the disc. I either die right when I spawn or he gets glitched in his ****ing bull**** tower and wont appear. This is getting to be mind numbingly boring; at this point in the game, I'm 99% sure I've spent more time loading/looking at the checkpoint menu than I have actually PLAYING the ****ing game.

    I f***** hated this boss fight. Reloaded nearly ten times. I tried so many different strategies but they didn't work and I was PO'd when I managed to kill the little **** only to die myself. But then I noticed that you can lockpick a door with a ladder leading you up a tower with a handy dandy sniper rifle. After that, the fight was over real quick. The problem I have with this is that the game seems to force you into only one particular direction in order to succeed. So much for choice. :lol:

  3. Now I really gotta ask what they were doing all these months, if you can't even change Thorton's face.


    I don't believe they said "Hey we're gonna make it so you can change his face during the delay" so I'm not sure where the foundation of your gripe about the time extension lies.

    Well it's not like there weren't any gripes about Mr. Plastic prior to the delayed release either. On every message board I've been there's always several threads complaining about MT's face. They should have taken this into consideration.

  4. I'd totally support a delay if they allowed for exploration within the hubs ala Bloodlines. Otherwise I can understand the "not RPG enough" comment.


    What's with this whole 'exploration' craze, anyway? I'd have hours of my life back if I didn't spend so much time backtracking from place to place in the Fallout games.

    Ambience. Environment. What's the point of being in Rome if you can't enjoy it?


    Fast travel can deal with the backtracking problems.

  5. Well, now that Obsidian has another 6+ months to work on the game, how about adding in some Mass Effect-style deeper facial customization and skin tone/color choices? These seem to be pretty much the only things missing from the whole character creation/customization process. I tend to like my games to have full character creation options. Would be a heck of a lot better than all of them having the same generic "Michael Thorton" face.

    One can hope, but I highly doubt it. I'll just turn to DA for my in depth char gen fix.

  6. Well I have a major problem with playing a CIA agent, but I'll wait until the credits roll to judge whether my experience has been negatively impacted by the profession of the main character.I wont go into a flame over it, and judge the game or the devs on the basis of one bad (in my eyes) design choice.


    Except...you're not a CIA agent.


    This went right over my head, everywhere I read M.T. is a rookie CIA agent?

    No, you are not a CIA agent, whereas the OP is a woman. Capice?


    Also I don't understand why people are ragging on the OP for liking Deus Ex. She made it pretty clear that her beef was with Obsidian whose previous games allowed players to choose female characters. Deus Ex is not an Obsidian game. Her expectation is that AP will be like DX but this time she's sitting it out. That sounds reasonable enough to me.


    I can also relate to her frustration. It gets tiring playing the same looking character after a while, especially when the character in no way represents you. In an RPG this is even more disappointing because RPGs usually provide an escape from the typical focus group designed everyman. For instance the heroes of Alpha Protocol, Drake's Fortune, Wolfenstein and Shadow Complex all basically look the same. Sometimes I get confused when I see screenshots from these games as to which is which because of this similarity. Sure, in NOLF and BG&E you have to play a female character but guess what? Those games didn't sell particularly well despite raving critical acclaim and being all out awesome. I think A LOT of gamers feel like the OP, but they tend to be white males so this isn't usually an issue for them.


  7. Keep fingers crossed. It took a full year afterall for Bioshock which is also based on Unreal 3 engine to be released for the PS3. Though I don't know of its quality port in comparison to 360.


    Regardless, if you feel concerned of the PS3 game quality, I will simply suggest you play it on the PC instead.

    If the PC version has intrusive DRM of any kind I will not buy it. That is why I am pleading to the devs that they please, please don't gimp the PS3 version. I very much want to be able to play this game and enjoy it. Otherwise I'm going to be very, very annoyed.

  8. I love being able to customise the appearance of my character, but I don't really miss the feature in games that don't have it.

    All games need the customisation featured in APB, which is the bestest thing ever.

    Totally agree about APB. The customization on that game is sick.


    Well, being able to identify with the protagonist really helps immersion. Its true that in Mass Effect its difficult to judge whether a certain face will look good in the game. Had to restart a couple of times too. But in that game (as well as in AP, I suppose) you spend so much time looking at the your characters face, I think its important for you to identify with the guy you're supposed to keep alive.

    Bingo! Ding! Ding! Ding!
