There's probably no avoiding F.E.4.R., but hopefully it will be the last one.
 
Actually, the co-op seems decent in this game.
 
It was funny how Ryan had a Freudian Slip and mentioned Portal 2, and then later shot at those lemons and proceeded to make a lemon joke that was NOT Portal 2 related, and Vinny brought up Half Life 2, and then later received a crowbar and proceeded to NOT mention Half Life 2.

This one really came in under the radar, which usually isn't a good sign.

Ryan has come to F.E.A.R about the single player. Get it? *rimshot*

Edit: Also, do I need to play the second F.E.A.R. to understand this one? I loved the first one, kinda liked Perseus Mandate, never played the second one.

Gotta get your psychic link to level 10.  Paxton will then be resistant to his weakness and he'll sustain a critical blow.

Alright. This doesn't look too bad. But man can you take a lot of bullets on rookie mode. It's almost as if you've got God mode on or something. Ryan is playing the game like serious sam and getting away with it. I know it's the "easy" mode, but no mode in a Fear game should allow you to play like that.

Other than that, it looks..... alright. I guess. I've never played any F.E.A.R games so I'm probably not going to buy this.

Yeah, FEAR 2 has some significant plot developments. Maybe they recap it in the beginning, but some messed-up stuff happens in FEAR 2.

I'm reading the co-op and multiplayer modes are friggin' awesome, while the campaign is the usual short, linear shooter you've come to expect. F.3.A.R. one of the best multiplayer games of the year? Wouldn't have ever thought it, but it sounds like that's the case.

This looks okay I guess, doesn't seem to even be close to the quality the original fear had though.

I hop3 you can turn off thos3 constant achi3v3m3nt updat3s, th3y'r3 r3ally annoying and don't b3long in a F3AR gam3 at all. F3AR is about cr3ating an atmosph3r3, I don't want to s33 "Crouched: 25/50 times" wh3n I'm crawling through som3 dark tunn3l h3aring w3ird nois3s.

Everything about F.E.A.R. seems interesting, except I'm too much of a pussy to play it.

I hate that I'm too scared by horror games.

I've never found F.E.A.R to actually be that scary. Between it and Condemned, Condemned is definitely Monolith's more fucked up horror title. THAT one, I am too much of girl to play alone.

I got this on PC just like I did the other fear games, and at first I thought it was awful. Then I realized by default they had aim assist on. Once I turned it off it felt much better.

I was hoping to see that Run multiplayer mode.  But still looks entertaining.

Might just be me, but I thought we were done with flashlight shooters at this point. Do people actually enjoy only being able to see 1/3 of the screen ?

This kills my memories of FEAR 1.  The clinical look, the bullet time, unique sounds and effects (vinnie spoke about). 
 
This just looks like another bad call of duty like homefront.
