lmfao, the whole time i played that section i was thinknig about how cool it would be if it actually took advantage of using force powers to manipulate people and the environment instead of me running straight to the vents and then just popping out to stand by the alarm console swinging my lightsabre at anyone that came near

It's extremely funny that that section is followed by the biggest set piece in the game where you and Luke go Dynasty Warriors on a million sith then blow up the entire place, like Kyle Katarn just forgot he was a Jedi for half an hour. I know that's always the case in those sections but it's so particularly loving dumb lol

badass main character: i just cut through 1000 guards and all without even getting a scratch on me
badass main character [suddenly sees 3 guards awkwardly positioned around a single control panel spinning in place]: hmm, i better not raise the alarm, maybe there's another way around

me: oh hell yes, now the real game begins

note to self for good stream idea: collecting a list of mandatory instant fail stealth sections and playing them all back to back

In the Shenmue one the guards kick Ryo out and then he goes to sleep for 23 hours

hahaha, that would be amazing!
Also if you drink, take a shot whenever you're detected and fail. That could spiral out of control pretty quickly though, haha

That's pretty much the first two Splinter Cell games iirc

Has anyone played This Land Is My Land, by any chance? I can definitely see myself tackling this in a stealthy way. I'll probably wait for a discount though, unless it's amazing - since I'm not exactly desperate for a new game at the moment. Definitely interesting, though!

Yeah, that's fair - it's a bit steep. I MIGHT spend that on an EA game, but it'd have to be really good and/or about to be released anyway

So it looks like Wildfire came out today. I've played some and it's pretty cool so far. The way that you use elemental magic keeps the sneakathon gameplay from being too cliche. The story is pretty old hat, though - you play a rando villager who discovers a fallen meteor and gets MAGIC POWERS. You are then pursued by a generic Emperor Badguy who destroys your village etc etc. You get your powers gradually - first fire, then water, then earth, then I think air (haven't gotten that far yet). Your powers don't really let you become a murder machine but instead alter the environment to facilitate stealthing. Your flame powers can set a grass fire that causes a distraction, your water powers can place you in a bubble that lets you soar over obstacles, your earth powers let you create vines that entangle your enemies and so on. Although I have to mention that it is possible for the fires that you set to rage out of control, killing everyone on the map. So far the gameplay is pretty fun, the maps are short enough to hold your attention and the puzzles are interesting without being too obtuse. If the game has a fault it's that it can be a bit linear sometimes but there's still enough creative problem solving that it's not too noticeable. Also the guards made some references to Thief 2, which was pleasing.

Wildfire looks cool -- the lead dev says he's obsessed with Far Cry 2 and most of the systems are inspired by that, which is funny when you think about the game being a pixel side scroller but also makes perfect sense
