The game is quite amazing at the beginning. But once you get your steel armor and steel weaponry and go beyond Whiterun, the game really does falter in the enjoyment factor.
I, however, still play it to this day to see and do the things I missed in previous playthroughs. I'm 900 hours in and I've yet to experience the freaking Thieves Guild fully! And though the guilds are rather shallow in their structure and design compared to the previous TES games, I still commit to them for the sake of role-playing. I want to be a certain SOMEONE in this world, and I can do that by dedicating my character to certain things and not let him/her do all the dungeons and quests. It makes the gameplay all the more enthralling than for someone who is a basic completionist.
And hey, Bethesda doesn't get games out often. There's always room for improvement.
Look on the bright side: According to Bill Gates, who has been using his money to assist third world countries, that various poor countries are right now gradually transitioning from third world to second world, and it's only going to get better from there until absolutely every human being stops dieing from starvation or curable diseases.
However, globalization is a different monster. We could always revolt if things go bad, but... they have probes and initiated mercenaries. We could have peaceful protests, but... they have probes, initiated mercenaries, and sociopathic tendencies.
And even if we manage to get some change going, how will mankind accept something fresh after having previous systems ingrained in their minds as a result of cultural upbringing? Would we truly accept an able society if it was far different from the one that failed to work in the long run? I don't know. All I know is that we have very dark days ahead of us.
Looks fine, but not the leap forward a lot of people seem to be hyping it up to be. Hope it turns out good on PC because I'm not planning on getting an Xbone for a few years.
Just glad it's a bit different to the usual FPS affair, no idea why EA thought having Medal of Honour (in modern times) along with Battlefield was a good idea.
The mech parts are cool but to be honest it does look a lot like Call of Duty on an urban map, with mechs just being the kill streak bonuses. I'm all for a new Call of Duty style experience with a fresh coat of paint and some new tricks though, would be nice if they have a lot of new stuff to reveal but from what I've seen so far it'll be enough to get me off other games for a while.
I completely fail to see what people are excited about and I'm not one to go frothing at the mouth each time a new COD is released and doesn't change the world. It seems like an alright shooter with fast movement. The titans didn't impress me that much, no idea why. They just seem like a whatever powerup, it doesn't look like the gameplay is significantly different when in one.
In all honesty I thought Syndicate did way more to revolutionize the FPS experience than this - but to each his own.
I agree, Humanity. I think the mech/titan twist is a huge gimmick that tries to hide the CoD influence. I'm just getting sick of these quick killtimes and tacked-on RPG, player progression crap that's infesting multiplayer shooters. They were good at first, but now it's not effective to players like me.
This is why, in my opinion, TF2 still stands as the best modern multiplayer FPS right now. It's simple, balanced, filled with personality, and has a flawless P2P model that never becomes P2W. Fuck unlocks that bloat the fucking game to unfeasible levels of broken, games should focus on balance and tons of maps, not instant gratification.
But hey, I'm not apart of the common denominator. They cater to people like me, they're obviously not going to sell well. Business is business.
Letting a bunch of old, out of touch assholes decide the future of something they don't understand and think is this huge evil thing is just ridiculous
As long as people die, things always change.
The death of Big Bro didn't hit home with me, but I thought everything else was pretty good. The flying segment and that awesome part where you have the dodge the Tree Men while hanging against a rock face? Truly adventurous.
In all honesty, if you want to end sexism/racism or any of that bullshit, stop talking about race and gender. Do whatever you can to not make those subjects pop up. If you're ignoring it like I am, we're doing the right thing (at least, I believe we are).
Not to be a jerk, but the reason you think this is a valid way to end oppression is because you aren't oppressed. You probably only think about discrimination when others talk about it, since you most likely don't experience it yourself. There is CONSTANT pain (rape, murder, suicide) caused from sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism, etc. Ignoring that pain won't make it go away; acknowledging it so that people will realize it's unjust, and fighting against it, is how discrimination can decrease. The idea of looking beyond one's gender, ethnicity, orientation, etc. and seeing people for who they really are is a wonderful sentiment, but society is nowhere near that point yet.
You're not a jerk. You're right. But fighting problems is not easy, especially when the majority of mankind doesn't know how to fight it and just runs in blindly against social issues, only to make things worse. To make people truly change something with action, you need to educate them. And education is expensive and tough to lend, as is the case with having limited and flawed minds incapable of understanding concepts beyond established reasoning.
The majority of mankind, including I, is uneducated and thus we can't face issues like this until we fully understand the issue, it's causes, and how to truly solve it. That's next to impossible, which is why I think not talking about race and inserting the concept into the minds of others is a viable solution, even if it's not going to save some person getting lynched because of his/her gender or skin color.
