Gold - BREACH

Atomic Games announces that BREACH is gold, and this military-themed first-person shooter will be available for Windows and Xbox 360 on January 26. The announcement notes the game's Windows support: "Atomic is also detailing the Windows PC version of Breach which will launch in both download form and at major retailers. The Windows PC version will feature support for larger explosions, particle effects and more through NVIDIA® PhysX® technology. It will also feature a higher performance Hardcore Mode for players looking to play the way operatives train. As one final note for Windows PC gamers everywhere, Atomic listened and included dedicated server support, with remote administration." Here's a bit more on the game:

Breach is unlike any other game. It is the first military shooter to use precise and massive destruction to change the very nature of multiplayer combat. Combined with an advanced cover system where players can use cover even while it is being destroyed around them, Breach enables real-world tactics never possible before now. Breach offers this destruction and active cover system all in a package that costs less than US$20.00.

I generally don't like cover systems and would much rather have the ability to lean whenever and wherever I want. However, Red Orchestra 2 has a pretty interesting cover system. It stays in first-person and not only can you lean around corners but you can also blindfire, which I think is a first for an FPS.

But yeah, third-person cover-systems in first-person shooters really need to go away. It's already hurt DX3.

I like the destruction, it's one the sole reasons I still play Bad Company 2.

But I hate the Active Cover system. I think 3rd personing around corners is cheating in an FPS and it makes 3rd Person games like Gears too goddamn easy.

Personally Killzone 2 has the best cover system I've seen, keeps you in first person, makes it so you still have to pop out of cover but can still peek over and around things. I wish games that wanted to use a cover system would copy theirs and not turn an FPS game into a corner camping fest. Rainbow Six Vegas and Vegas 2 suffered from the same thing.

Pull out Rogue Spear instead. My HBM tells me where to throw that nade, or how to ambush your camping ass.

Eh, I guess it's not as bad as Deathspank. And nowhere near as bad as Wargasm.

LOL thanks. You know it was a joke, right?

It gave me a moment of hestitation. I've been looking forward to this game for a long time, so I've been waiting for something to cause my high hopes to come crashing down. Just had to be sure
