Ok. Lot of back story to this. Several years ago I crashed into a snowplow clearing the roads. Shortly after that I got a bill from the state for damages. I thought it must have been some mistake. After I got my license revoked I learned it wasn't. So I thought I had it cleared up. Then Dead Island comes out and I'm really excited to rent it. So much so that I don't notice how much I'm speeding. So I get pulled over and it turns out I didn't clear that license thing because I have an arrest warrant. But I must say as far as arrests go it went really well.

Well that was anti-climatic. The Praetorian guard was like one of the easiest parts of the damn game. It was also bullshit too. I keep telling people that it doesn't count as a twist if the cut scene lies to you. And I thought Victoria needs the flash drive thing to not die. That being said I can see why people really like this series. It has a lot of replay ability. I[m probably going to go back and try a few different things. Like that scarecrow challenge. Oh yeah some of those challenges are pretty vague.

Here's how I would compare it.
Saint's row 3 is a really great games and all, but when you strip away the story, it feels like there isn't much to it.

It kinda reminds me of what happen to Assassin's creed in 2 and brotherhood. It felt like I was doing less story stuff, and was more buying banks and just watching other people kill targets.

3 had the same thing. It was, do a story mission, and then do 50 identical mini games that had no appeal. At least in 4 they rewarded you for doing it.
It just felt like a chore to do half of them, and the game made you do them, it really broke the flow of the game. You just did an amazing story mission, filled with action, and then to make the story go any further, you had waste time doing something random.


Though, that's just me I guess. First thing I noticed when I went back to play 2 and 4. Sure, 2 makes you do it and so does 4, but in 2, they felt way more fun.


As for story wise and not game play. 2 was way more grittier and about actual hardships, the growth of the saints and how rough gang life could be. You'll see that within the first few missions. As for 3, it felt mixed, sure there was very touching parts, but all in all, it felt like a wacky game where you could see just how much chaos you could make.


Give them both a try though, it's worth it. 2 is my favorite though for the story.

So Dishonored. I heard this is a lot like Bioshock so that's a super plus. But it is like Bioshock if you played it as a stealth game which I did not. With me it was more a apiculture simulator. Also I heard you move bodies and I hate that.

Shit! I forgot to talk to Roth after the pilot crashed. This Chatterbox achievement is a pain.

Na, originals they boring as fuck.

Both reboots? You mean the reboot and the sequel to the reboot? The game that's not even out yet? Because you're a hipster?

Tomb Raider Legend was the first reboot.

Somepony somewhere is a asshole for incorrectly using that term all over the place.
A reboot is when it completely ignores pre-existing canon, the sequel to Legend (Underworld) ties directly into the original games. Maybe they retconned some plot details but it's not a reboot.

A reboot is when you restart the series.

The CrystalDynamics games are a reboot because they completely disregard all the insane batshit of the earlier games, re-treading and retconning the whole origin story about Natla and throwing out stuff like Tomb Raider 4's magical egyptian god robot armor magic mummy curse apocalypse.

Which it didn't. Changed a bunch of stuff but not everything.

A recon doesn't equal a reboot.

I hate this image so much, always see it posted in feminist threads on /co/ all the time.
They had a Teen Titans comic based on the show, casuals don't read comics though so it got discontinued. Comics are meant for beta virgins that go out and buy several comics every two weeks (x multiple variant covers) and pay crazy money for shit at conventions.

I buy my overpriced shit online and don't pay for comics, so jokes on them. Right?

Considering that's the period of biggest popularity in comics, not really. Just because it was shitty doesn't mean it wasn't selling well, just look at the waves of Military Shooters that were being launched the couple past years.

Ok. I'm still waiting for the my shitty internet to download gears of war so I'm trying Terraria first. So is this game, like legal? This seams like such a minecraft rip off it borders on copy right infringement.

Anyway, Terraria is basically what Minecraft's survival mode should have been, just in 2d.

J was such a mish-mash of things but I think 2 is the worst. Garbage connectivity, tons of try hards with modded controllers using HB, campaign felt like a bunch of random stages pasted together.

What's HB? Also don't forget how super buggy it was.

Hammer Burst.
2 had a bunch of stuff that I liked but enough that I hated to make me glad that I 100% and never touch it again.

People like Ready at Dawn and David Cage going on about Video Games being a story telling medium then going ahead and being horrible story tellers is starting to piss me off.
