I don't care how long and feature rich a game is when it plays like shit.
It plays fine. You run, you shoot, you collect items. Do you have one hand and a hook? I knew a guy like this. We called him Steel Clicka'. 'Was a mean motherfucker at FPS games.
Translation: MY OPINION IS CORRECT AND EVERYONE ELSE IS JUST STUPID AND WHINY AND NEEDS TO SHUT UP AND YOU SHOULD ALL LISTEN TO ME BECAUSE I KNOW BETTER THAN ALL OF YOU. DID I MENTION HOW RIGHT I AM ALREADY?
The problem with D3 is not the gameplay, it plays great! Better than TL2 by a mile. It's the design that's the problem, and it's the design of TL2 that shines through.
D3 is far too concerned with story (which is ok if that's your thing) but heavy story elements get in the way of the thing that makes this genre great. If you've played a lot of D3 you're probably already more than fed up with the same story beats, pressing the space bar all the time and the same boring world that never really changes. Also, the loot is bad.
As a lot of people say with much hyperbole, TL2 is the sequel to D2 that should have been, and I feel the same way! Also Matt Uelmen. Also, the first main zone has parts that sound just like D2's "Wilderness" track.
You might as well be saying he didn't invent the silhouette then, which would be a retarded thing to say because of course he didn't invent the silhouette, but It is a very blatant copy (or homage) of his work, even in context! The most important part. Whoever Gearbox got to do it clearly has 'copied' in more ways than one, I suspect Gearbox we're not aware of that part in particular.
Now obviously he's not actually 'pissed' about it, But if I were him I'd also be a little bummed Gearbox didn't at least ask me to do it. Whatever though, in the long run this means absolutely nothing, just one of those things.
Haha, I too also keep an eye on that, and when I see the same 10 fucking games on the top 10 everyday, I wonder why anyone else bothers. Not that it wasn't going to do well, but nice to see it up there! Now to start playing again...
I completely lost it at "...I read on several sites that COD: Black Ops 2 will feature up to six teams, for a total of 18 simultaneous players, in multiplayer mode."
"I read on several sites"? Yeah, terrible. Hate to belabour the point, but wow! What's worse is that most of the comments appear to be more concerned with the CoD comparison (which is bad of course) rather than the awful writing.
