@StrikeALight: There is no way that Hydra is harder than the Darkroot Basin one. Then again, I beat it when I was like level 67 or something. I used the same tactics; roll away from projectiles, get closer and when it attacks, chop the heads. At some point, I was hurting it so bad, I killed it without even chopping all of its heads.

It totally is harder though. It's got better range, there's a lot less cover, it can jump to the other side of the lake, and there are a bunch of effing clam things along the way to damage you. The one in Basin is a joke in comparison, that thing never even hit me.

It's a scientific fact that EA have thee best most diverse collection of top notch triple A games published by them.
  • Mass Effect
  • Dragon Age
  • Battlefield
  • Crysis
  • Medal of Honor
  • The Sims
  • Army of Two
  • The Saboteur
  • Dead Space
  • Need for Speed
  • Alice: Madness Returns
  • Bulletstorm
No one can surpass EA as a publisher of great, great games.

Way to forget all their fucking sports games.

Naughty Dog isn't a publisher, dummy.

In terms of 'all-time', Namco or Capcom.

Jesus Christ...

Uncharted 3 has identical gameplay to 2, nothing is new. The shooting still sucks, Drake still craps out tired one-liners, and the game still consists of repetitive shooting sequences and ledge-jumping. They added nothing. It's Uncharted 2.5

Arkham City is a huge improvement on Arkham Asylum, yes the game is similar, but it's only the second iteration, and there are a hell of a lot of big differences that make the game feel, look, and play differently. New characters, Catwoman levels, new gadgets, improved mobility systems, a much much much bigger world to explore, it's a completely different and improved game. Same goes for Gears, they add Beast mode, they completely remake Horde mode, they add weapons and enemies and a whole mess of new crap to keep the core features of the series, but make it feel and play like a whole new game. Uncharted 3 doesn't do that at all, they took 2 and made it again, and could barely get that right since the game kinda sucks and I'd much rather play 2. The multiplayer is the same, shooting is the same, climbing around is the same, there is nothing new. There's a difference between what games like Arkham City and Gears 3 did, keeping fundamentals but adding plenty of new stuff, compared to what Uncharted 3 did, keeping fundamentals and adding jack shit.

@Brodehouse: Come on dude that is NOT the same fucking pile of cards. Changing the difficulty does not fundamentally remove an entire core feature of the game! I'm not mad at Bioware, I'm not even mad at EA, I'm mad at the state of the industry when it's okay to add a "feature" which to me seems to me not unlike a hack. Presumably you are going to be able to press a button that says: "hey pick every paragon option" or "pick every renegade option" it's sickens me to think that someone is okay with letting the game ship with the ability to do that it represents nothing that makes the Mass Effect series great and it's belittles their choices and story and ruins any immersion by melting them down to binary choices and statistics (which is something I personally find hard to ignore anyway)

It would be like adding a feature to Mario that automatically jumped every time their was a gap, it's lazy, it's stupid and it shouldn't have taken any of the development time.

So yes, I'm mad bro and I'm throwing my toys out of the cot, but hey I'm passionate enough about the series to care so take that as a positive.

Nothing stupid about it, I enjoy playing games where I get to pick the dialogue just as much as I enjoy playing them when they have a nice set story that doesn't have to pause every 5 seconds for me to pick what to say. It'll be a nice change of pace and I'll really enjoy playing ME3 that way. Awesome new feature Bioware.

No, only sad, lonely and insecure people would consider internet acquaintances to be real 'friends'.
