And you shall know My name is Jehovah!

I played Call of Juarez back when it released, and I remember looking forward to it for quite some time. And while it didn't meet my expectations, it did manage to provide some great firefights. The duel six-shooters were pretty bad ass, actually. Even though overall I think they missed the mark, at least the combat really made me feel like I was in a western.


I remember liking the preacher a lot -- you could sneak up to an enemy and recite lines from the bible to him, and when he stopped to listen, shoot him in the face.


  


I swear to God I almost converted religions.


The developers must have thought half a good game is the same as a full one, because that's how long you were able to play as the preacher. The other half was a clogged toilet of shit stealth missions with a borderline retarded kid who really needed to have the bible read to him. I say secondary, because for me it was all about the preacher. I'd never played a character like that before, nor have I since. If they would have just stuck with him and lengthened his part of the story, I probably wouldn't have traded the game in after I finished it.


But alas, they did, and so did I, and here we are. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood was just announced today, and I don't know what to think. Part of me wants to believe they'll make something more out of it; but on the other hand, they're a relatively small developer who's already working on another game. I'm pretty sure it will never be what I want it to be, though. I would love to have a western-themed, first person RPG -- maybe something along the lines of an Oblivion or Fallout, but with a world more like Deadwood's. That is my dream, and I cannot die until it is realized. In the meantime, I'll probably be looking forward to more of this:


  


Fucking hell, this was the most retarded shit ever. There was a door right behind me.

I never understood why they removed Jahovah's name from modern translations of the bible.

It sounds disrespectful.

If anyone has bothered to read the Bible (most people haven't) they will find nothing respectful in there, it's a very mean spirited book. The fact that you play as a preacher who blows peoples heads off makes me laugh because most Christians think killing is negotiable anyway. (what happened to thou shalt not kill? or is it murder?)

Anywho Call of Juarez can take a back seat to just about any other shooter, but that is just my opinion.
