If I recall, the Dark Souls ban came from players complaining about little things and other players going: "But if you knew what you were doing you wouldn't have the problem the game is easy really" and the situation going out of hand.

What was also bullshit about Alan Wake was that getting the McGuffin didn't affect game play any.

I also don't dig that Dishonored doesn't display your Chaos score openly during missions.

In general, the Chaos mechanic is weird and sort of arbitrary. Killing people raises your Chaos score, and not killing them reduces it. But stealing plague cures from poor people, killing active plague vectors and robbing rich dudes blind does nothing. What up with that?

Regarding time passing in Assassin's Creed games: I feel they should get some sort of free pass, since the structure of play is very divided between missions and free roaming, and even justified in-world. The Animus provides a story reason for Ezio dicking around in Rome, collecting flags, unlocking tombs and assassinating people.

In normal conversations, the characters only have three or four animations. If they weren't as distinctive as they are, it wouldn't be a problem, but the wave-your-arm-in-front-of-your-face thing gets really noticeable.

But speaking of frame rate problems, I've had a terrible time with New Vegas lately because it's decided that the radscoprions I've killed need to follow me around the world, clipping into the ground and somehow slowing everything down to a slideshow.

Also, it seems like the map is just too big and open. I preferred Dragon Age: Origins where it seemed easier to know what you were supposed to do. And you didn't need to waste time trekking around through the countryside. Skyrim seems really unfocused and I feel like there should be more barriers that fall away as you progress rather than just letting you go wherever you want right from the beginning. I can go and find all these other towns and stuff, but I feel like I'm going to do a bunch of stuff there and then later the game is going to make me go there as part of the story and I'll get there and find no new stuff, just the poo poo I already did.

Wait, you're complaining that an Elder Scrolls game is too big and open? I thought the whole point of TES games was that you could go wherever.

The story isn't really important; it mostly points out the cool poo poo you can do and lets you go do it. Skyrim works really well if you can make your own fun.


For actual content: The crossbow (long-range silent weapon) in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood breaks the stealth. It can be fired when you're blending, and from horseback (I think). It's expensive, for sure, but if you know what you're doing, you'll have the 12,000 monies required fairly quickly.

What up, Desmond-liking-buddy. I don't give a poo poo about Ezio, or Altair, or Connor, or Jimbo or Francois or whatever, all their stories are the same and frankly their events are foregone conclusions. I want to see all the aliens stuff and the apocalyptic plans and what the gently caress is going to happen oh man, especially when it means getting to see more of the not-quite-future world and stuff.

I just wanna play a modern day AC game. Give me the climbing and the stabbing and the silly pointy outfit in a modern city already.

Hell, I think it would be pretty cool to have a mission where you tail a car from the rooftops towards it's destination to then either do an Air Assassination or even take him out with a rifle. And then have to escape somewhere into the urban jungle.

It's not necessarily Desmond people hated, it's that he never did anything interesting or memorable.

I thought the present-day segments in ACIII were neat. If they'd had the UI elements, they'd've been even better.

I call bullshit on that, by the way. According to Colonel Campbell, "I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm, in flap-jaw space, with the tuning fork, does a raw blink on Hiri-Kiri rock! I need scissors! 61!"

That actually wasn't Campbell, it was an AI masquerading as Campbell who had just been infected with a virus. So it makes perfect sense that it'd say weird stuff like that.
