Brad always used to do the most entertaining solo streams of the staff, so really glad to see this back.

My friend and I played this till we got the first real open level. And then it broke us with its spongy and tough and unfair enemies and we haven't gone back.

Curious to watch someone else play it.

I've been enjoying this game solo, but I feel like we're in a F3AR situation where it's kinda mediocre, but co-op makes it more worthwhile. That game wasn't great but me and a buddy had a damn fine time with it.

I like this game. I think the banter is fantastic, I like the shooting, I like the characters. The graphics aren't great, and I have crashed twice now so there are obviously issues, but the way so many people are claiming this is the worst game ever is mind boggling to me.

I should mention I've been playing with a friend.

Beat the final boss a couple of days ago, and while it was a close call, it was not that bad. Would be easier in co-op, but I managed fine alone. Sure the enemies are more spongy than I would like, but as long as you upgrade your weapons and think about armor type you take down most enemies fast. I can understand why some people don't like the game, but the absolute vitriol against it is so overblown.

I also like the sisters actually. They are funny in a dorky way, which is really funny with BJ being their dad. I like the fact that they are goofy as fuck.
Oh, and fuck nazis.

This game probably came out at the right time to get some sales with nothing else coming out but that’s probably also contributed to the disappointment with it being amplified

I haven't played this game, but it largely seems fine for what it is: a short sidestory B game in a series meant to bridge the story gap from Wolfenstein 2 to 3 all while offering a different gameplay experience from the "core" games in the series and costing $30.

I personally don't care for games that "encourage" you to play co-op since I don't get many of those opportunities, but it's clearly appealing to some folks, so I think the gamble there is paying off. Other than that I think the sisters are entertaining and the structure seems OK - bullet sponginess has never been a major sticking point for me in games and I've liked the shooting in the past games.

The only really apparent problem with the game seems to be the broken checkpointing system. That seems like the kind of thing that they can fix with a patch, and I'm surprised they haven't yet.

Every second I've seen of this game being played seems like all of the middle parts of other, more interesting games. It all seems pretty recycled.

Omg Brad, I am so sorry that happened to you!!

I was sitting here after you died, saying, "There's next to zero chance they'll make you replay that boss. That'd be too fucked up."

I was speechless when that load finished. That's just appalling.

Yep. This was the exact level I stopped at. One of the key's fell into the geometry of the level after I killed the big mech thing. The only way to fix it was to reload, which, of course, started me at the beginning the raid.

This game is bad.

Ummmm.....I'm a proud Nazi sympathizer and this stream is problematic!

but seriously, the gameplay in this iteration belongs in the early 2000s; very uninspired level design and poor inclusion of RPG elements.

For the people who come here to see what is up with the audio: the delay gets fixed after about 20mins in ?

Thanks for the stream, Brad!

Oh my word, 'F3AR'. If there's ever a behind-the-scenes tell-all about that game's development...from attempting to make a horror-centric co-op shooter to certain individuals involved with the project (Steve Niles? John Carpenter?!?!), I'd be fascinated to hear what former-Day 1/potentially-current Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore employees may recall about the development process.

Agree on co-op making it more worthwhile, though - and to its credit, the shooting isn't too bad and the adaptive challenge acquisition system is quite good (being given opportunities for further reward for what it seems like you're going for, in terms of playstyle, is nice.) But yeah, bring a buddy, indeed!

Having a hard time getting into this game, shooting feels a bit better then the previous games. But i hate most of the game design in this.

It feels so antiquated, not sure if they where trying to go for that feel or if they reached some limitations. And its not that antiquated has to be a bad thing i regularly go back and play older games where those limitations are fine because that's to be expected.But its just so poorly executed in this game.

@brad Bit of a weird question. What shelves are those that you use to store your games? I use an old bookshelf now and it is far to deep. I like how yours are right on the edge.
