GD it FZ. Why do you send me these mixed signals?! >:

darkvare May 28th, 2010 09:58 PM

lol you pretty much made the same exact character as gamespot reviewer

Fathom Zero May 28th, 2010 10:09 PM

Oh my god, I'm on the first mission and it's so awful. Targeting is shit, you won't be able to hit anything no matter what. Hacking is probably the worst minigame ever made and I think I'm going into seizures.

I can't warn people enough to stay away from this game, but I'm still going to play through because I spent fifty fucking dollars on it. >:

DougClayton4231 May 28th, 2010 10:26 PM

I fucking told you Fathom! lol If only you hadn't pre-purchased.

Dr. Boogie May 28th, 2010 10:42 PM

It sounds like you were spot-on. I was actually hoping that this might turn out to be the next Deus Ex sort of game, but instead it's just a turd.

Fathom Zero May 28th, 2010 11:03 PM

If the gameplay wasn't so broken, it'd probably come pretty close. There's a really cool spy feeling about it, but it's just aaaaaaaaaaaagh.

Dimnos May 28th, 2010 11:10 PM

Did you get it on PC FZ? You still have the hope some skilled fan(s) will make some sort of patch or mod that will fix that shit.

Fathom Zero May 28th, 2010 11:50 PM

True. It's about as stable as Merchants of Brooklyn.

I would be able to deal with all of the dickish moves Obsidian made if they made the camera rotate smoothly around the character.

I can't play a game when it's like that. I really can't. It keeps you from seeing your environment and the enemies, aiming, and everything else.

Dr. Boogie May 29th, 2010 12:24 AM

I'm sorry, Fathom, but I have to admit I enjoyed your series of posts on the subject:


"Okay, I'm a few seconds in, and everything looks good. Conversation options are alri-AAAUUUUGH GOD WHY!? WHY!?"

Guitar Woman May 29th, 2010 01:33 AM

Conker's Bad Fur Day!

At first I didn't care for it, until I realized it's not so much a Banjo Kazooie type platformer as it is a simplified version of a Lucasarts-ish adventure game. There's practically no combat in it at all, and the levels are teeny, as opposed to BK's sprawling, massive billion levels full of different stuff to do. Most of it is spent just running around, solving one or two puzzles, then moving to the next area.

It's ok, but not as funny as the internet would have you believe.

Pentegarn May 29th, 2010 07:06 AM

Despite the gross out humor it has, I always thought the Great Mighty Poo fight was interesting and unique. Before that I never had to fight a boss that sang to me.

OxBlood May 29th, 2010 07:35 AM

I admit, Alpha Protocol is pretty much shit in the technical department but I still like it, I just didn´t think they´d mess up the optics and part of the controls that much...I don´t really mind the whole "I can´t hit shit"-thing, since it´s an RPG, not a Shooter. Look at any Bioware RPG. People are hitting each other in the face with maces but nothing happens as long as the dice behind the scenes don´t say so.

But I can understand that most people will get some kind of seizure when they play this game ;) good thing I got it a bit cheaper...

They should do they same thing I proposed to the Nier-team: Keep their story-writers and gameplay-designers, fire the rest and get some grown-ups to program their game.

lmao, I'm glad I could at least warn some people. I couldn't even finish the training mission because I hated it so much.

OxBlood May 29th, 2010 08:46 PM

The training mission sucks, true. The other hubs are quite interesting up till now.

Finished Saudi Arabia and Taipeh and I´ve just arrived in Russia for my thrid operation...it´s nice how the people you meet remember in which order you went to which place...the guy I met in Taipeh (3rd Opration in the list, I did it first) talks about the things that happened there, how he and I were involved and what it can mean for our continued cooperation in Russia (1st Op in the list, doing it second). I suppose he´d treat me a lot differently, had our first meeting gone more hostile...could´ve tried to kill him too of course...but I prefer to keep potential benefactors alive, even if they´re the apparent head of some secret tech-mercenary-group.

DougClayton4231 May 29th, 2010 08:53 PM

Just beat Resident Evil 5 for the first time. The last few chapters were designed by satan himself, I swear. It's like they don't want you to enjoy the game at all and most of it is not self-explanatory. I can't imagine beating it on the hardest difficulty, it must be like slamming your dick in a car door.

Fathom Zero May 29th, 2010 09:45 PM

I broke a controller while fighting Wesker for the first time, I think.

That's when I returned Resident Evil 5 and never ever played it again. :lol

Fathom Zero May 29th, 2010 10:36 PM

For anyone wanting some good espionage action and spy stuffs, there's a game called Subversion coming out from Introversion Games, the makers of Darwinia and Defcon. It's very promising looking.

darkvare May 29th, 2010 10:37 PM

i kiled wesker in like 5 minutes the second fight of course

Fathom Zero May 29th, 2010 10:41 PM

The quick time events were such bullshit in that game. That's why I stopped.

darkvare May 29th, 2010 10:48 PM

yeah at least in umbrella chronicles they had the courtesy of letting you know when they were coming with the effect on the screen

Sam May 29th, 2010 11:55 PM

You guys are such pussies. :lol

Dimnos May 30th, 2010 12:43 AM

Im with Sam. Your all pussies if you cant beat Wesker or the QT events. :\

darkvare May 30th, 2010 12:57 AM

wesker was easy i even beat it with a stupid ai partner

Fathom Zero May 30th, 2010 07:25 AM

I didn't care for most of it anyway. I liked Mercenaries more.

OxBlood May 30th, 2010 10:29 AM

Alright, finished Alpha Protocol on normal with an Engineer in about 15 hours. Up until the very last part it was really fun despite all the technical shortcomings...I for one don´t regret getting it :)

Now, on to replaying it as an asshole field agent.
