    I signed up after lurking for awhile just to say... I'm kind of in love with this thread. It's got humor, pathos, tragedy, comedy, barely intelligible grunting... Pretty epic stuff.

    Even just for the whole arc of Mr Andy Dixon... from starry-eyed ingenue full of hope to bitter, hardened, miserable, cynical, (possibly suicidally depressed) wreck of a man. It's worth the 26 pages of forum posts just for that.

    I just turned off the demo myself. The whole thing just felt... joyless. Perfunctory. (If that's a thing you can actually get a sense of in about 15 minutes or so.) I got to the zombies with guns, laughed out loud and shut it down. Granted, my opinion has been pretty poisoned against the game at this point from announcement after sad announcement. It was probably never going to win with me. I was still hoping, though...

    Maybe it'll go down easier for the people who don't have a history with the series. Or those who just want to shoot things in the face. Though I doubt there will be the five million people they're say they need to justify their existence. Between BioShock Infinite, Aliens: Colonial Marines and Gears Of War: Judgement, I reckon I'll be busy enough this quarter anyway.

    Oh god, now I'm imagining Alien 3 with little popup messages asking Ripley if she wants to buy a pulse rifle to up her chances.

    Yeah... Alien 3 wasn't that bad of a movie.

    I lost so much money to this game, especially the bullshit final boss, but oh man, I loved every minute of this mutha.

    Well, it's no AvP Arcade, but I get your point.

    *takes bow* Just trying to keep Used entertained.

    Little does he know I'll be reviewing this for Dtoid and I've already decided to give it an 11/10.

    Pookie cannot play the demo tomorrow. I have to go to Orlando to build myself a gaming PC with my brother.

    Pookie is finally joining the master race.

    You mean I'm downloading 1. 92g of this for nothing? FOR SHAME






    And I'm with you on PC Gaming. Probably going to do my rig before I even worry about any new consoles.

    My laptop busted its final nut this week, so I'm making the transition. Less bullshit, and the games are cheaper and look better. NO MORE SHADOW PIXELATION. Now I can go back to using Google for porno.

    I used to worry about not really owning my games on PC because you couldn't resell them but I don't ever see myself paying $60 for a PC game anyway. Plus all the games you can buy for under $20 negates needing a trade-in system.

    I need to go digital to get over my neurotic obsession with game cases. We've discussed my autism in this area before.

    Haha. I remember. I only want physical shit so I can have it on my own terms. If DD allows for that I'm golden.


    The fucking best part is multiplayer is all server based.

    It's okay, Andy. When I finished the demo I cut myself a little bit... just to let the pain out. I understand you. I UNDERSTAND YOU.

    Played the single player demo. Mixed feelings, but definitely NOT buying it new. It still feels solid and the new environment is interesting, but I can't go encouraging EA.

    I can understand when this kind of thing happens after they buy a studio/series and try to shape it into something else (I still think it's bullshit), but when it's a series that has been in EA's posession, in the same in-house studio, it just seems exponentially more of a dick move.

    If anyone wants to do the co-op, I'm on PS3. PSN/SEN name KingSushi

    This is me being nitpicky but I'm not crazy about the games new "antique scifi" aesthetic what with all the rust and green-tinted computer modules.

  19. #539
    Has the aesthetic shifted a lot since 2? I haven't played the demo yet.

    The ending has been uploaded to[dailymotion] . I usually avoid stuff like this, bt I have already decided that this game is a hollow shell of it's former self. This di nothing to sway me, but also nothing to convince me that I am 100% right.

    Watch at your own discretion.
