The non-stealth approach is shit also, IMO. If you kill someone, all his buddies have ESP and know about it. Then an alarm is triggered and EVERYONE knows where you are. I've yet to actually cancel an alarm (they sure as hell don't time out). Usually I just reload the game and stealth in.

Not sure of you can cancel alarms either. But from my experience, the first alarm happens, then a second wave of called in reinforcements. And after that, I thought it stops?

I hate infinite respawns, but I've yet to come across the here yet...

Cox Joins Push for Ultrafast Broadband. Thanks Slashdot.

Is it just me or does the article fadeout and registration required to read the rest?

Yeah, that's a paygate.

Do you ever say anything positive? Given that Abrams is rolling back the most egregious sins of Lucas and the fact that Disney to date have known when to leave well enough alone with other content creators your grumpiness (though it does seem your default state) seems a bit misplaced and overly pessimistic.

Oh shut up you fucking troll. Most everything I post is positive. I just don't put up with bullshit from trolls like you. And another jackass goes on the ignore list.

Um, no. It's a 50/50 mix, at best. Maybe you don't realize how negative you sound, but you do sound negative more often than not, IMO. I loves ya, but you do suck the air out of the room, sometimes...

Wolfenstein taking top spot.

I find this 'review' with the negative aspects of the game's design pretty hilarious

CONS:

-No HUD to show position of enemies during firefight

-Difficult to tell where you are being shot from

-Have to push a button in order to pick up ammo and health instead of just walking over it

-Leaning around walls and using cover Ė sort of pointless because tactics donít really come into play

Noob, yo

(I'm assuming you mean the reviewer is a noob, and not the game design, but my .02 anyway).

1, For navigation, you use a map...like Doom! And do we really need to know where the enemies are? Does BJ have some 1960s Nazi tech where they all have GPS/RFIDs and he can see where they're located? Hell, people bitched about DXHR and being able to see through walls, and that was set in our (2011+) future.

2,3, I will concede those. Kinda bizarre decisions, but not game killers, at least for me. At least once, I turned around and a dog was biting me on the ass.

4, I welcome lean in any FPS.

I find it to be a very enjoyable game, and this is coming from someone who ignored it/had zero interest up until a few months ago.

Also, yea on Transistor! Two good games in the top spots.

Star Wars sucks badly enough as it is. It's only going to get worse with Disney and Lamebrams.

Lamebrams rolled back Mara Jade and Admiral Thrawn, Wedge Antilles Rogue Squadron, Wraith Squadron, Jaina Solo, Jacen Solo, Anakin Solo, all video game extended universe; Dash Rendar, Kyle Katarn, Jan Orrs, etc.

Lamebrams and Disney have committed a cardinal sin.

You can blame George, who was planning Episode 7 a year before he sold everything to Disney. If you're going to point fingers, point them in the right direction.

That hygiene story is pretty interesting.

I read about that earlier this week. I could never do anything like that, as I sweat like a pig. I read something last year about 3% of the population doesn't sweat in their pits, and therefore don't need deodorant, and I would KILL to be in that 3%.

Damn.. here's hoping you get a surprise in the mail tomorrow then! My digital key still won't work until Tuesday unfortunately..

Na, it doesn't look like the order has changed status @ amazon, and I'd expect to see a pending charge right now if it did.

If I'm lucky it might ship tomorrow, but that means it won't be here until Tues, with the holiday...

I guess this is the one time living close to an amazon distribution center doesn't pay off...they know they can ship at the last minute and still get it here.

GODDAMMIT! Amazon is shipping copies early, BUT NOT MINE.

If this was GTA, I'd be having a fucking stroke right now.

It's pretty sad that UBIsoft had such piss-poor timing with the release. Everyone who pirated this fucker is playing it over the holiday weekend, while the rest of us suckers and our useless preorders have to wait until the work-week starts again.


Pretty much that exactly. Won't see mine until Tuesday...

Was browsing Twitch last night and wandered into the GTA V channel. At the top of the list was somebody named "WatchDogz" or something to that effect. Anyway, I started watching, and it quickly became apparent they were streaming Watch Dogs. Probably watched for a half hour. Looks like fun.

Yea twitch sent out a nice warning and started banning people streaming it this morning. It's like you know you don't have a legit copy, but your going to try to stream it anyways?

But I suspect at least some of them are legit...

It recommends longer passwords with upper and lower case letters, numbers and characters, but then they disabled pasting on the new password entry, which makes using a password generator/manager useless, unless you want to type in 32 random characters twice.

Ran into that exact issue. I use password corral, so I first set the password in there (and save it!) before I start trying to enter it on the web page.

I think there was someone on ebay selling copies as of last weekend, so as it filters out, more people stream on consoles.

Was pretty cool watching folks play Wolf Monday night, before it came out...

Can you get out of situations or complete the entire game with using nonlethal weapons like Deus Ex?

We're still talking about Wolfenstein, right? I'm going to let you think about that statement for a bit.


In the video above I don't see Wallenstein mentioned. Watch Dogs is billed as a do what you want sandbox conspiracy game, so obviously there must be a way to complete the entire game nonlethaly. I want to know if there is an achievement for it like Deus Ex.

Ok, but you replied to my post, where someone was asking about Wolf, and I told them my impressions.
