What difficulty spikes? I've found (as the game will tell you!) it scales with your skill. I've owned a guitar for roughly 10 years and I was a bag of shit at strumming that thing. The progress I made within the first week of playing this was unbelievable. During loading screens I find myself playing songs that I'd learned without realising I learned them. I would recommend this any day of the week over Rockband 3's pro mode (which I also invested in). Felt like this reviewer is slamming the game because he can't be bothered to put the time in. This is a learning tool rather than a game. And because of that I fucking love it

@yarkiebrown The save system isnt that far off Skyrim. Just no multiple saves. Whenever you quit the game do it through the options, it'll save right where you are. When you load up boom, carry on. You don't need to visit a bonfire if you're turning it off.

In regards to Toms #14 post. *Spoilers* They guy doesn't tell you his intentions for Lady Boyle UNTIL you have taken her to him. The way Tom worded it leads you to believe you are fully aware of what will happen when in fact he only tells you he loves her. So I offered to help believing I was infact helping both of them. I was wrong.

@wattsn26 cheers dude I had no idea I could remove that stupid crosshair. So frustrating when the laser keeps shifting off centre. I felt the same, demo 1 left more than a bitter taste in my mouth. 2nd was better but that really wasn't hard, only played Leon section on both. I wanted to love 5 but played through it twice and just couldn't get on with it. From what 6 has been like so far I'd suggest it's what you are expecting. Might wanna rent it. I see it getting good reviews though.

@wattsn26 I'm about half way through Leon's campaign and it's very hit and miss. It does actually have tension now (as to my earlier post saying there was none, played a good hour or two more now) but its all too rare and I have come across even more 'kill all zombies to continue' scenarios. I'm only playing it because I love the series and almost feel obligated to see what happens. Also, so far it's better than 5 (but so is a golden shower in my opinion). Not looking forward to the other two campaigns. I hope I'm wrong.

Started playing 6 last night and Leon's opening feels like a nod towards 2. Hell, you even meet a cop on his first day on the job. But that tension just isnt there, only once has it got me 'nervous?'. Considering the games roots was about survival and ammo conservation a few times I have had to clear all zombies in an area. That shit just aint Resi. And please, don't anybody bang on about the series going forward. Because it's shambling backward.

Hitman Absolution's clever Contracts mode is a "reverse murder mystery"

SellOrDie

@The-Bodybuilder Another way to look at your racing analogy is you trying to beat your friends time in a different car. Perhaps your car is slower, but you hit the racing line so produce a better lap time than them so you would be rewarded more points. Check out their facebook page, they uploaded a vid with 3 contract playthroughs. 1st is them competeing with a set contract. 2nd is them creating a contract and the 3rd is someone playing through that 2nd contract but trying to beat the score. As 2 of the developers are talking you through it it should help answer any questions

@The-Bodybuilder You wander through a level and you pretty much decide who to kill and how. Whether that be a civilian or a guard or both. Someone then tries to either match your contract by killing the same targets in the same manner or they can 'up the ante' by doing it in a quicker/more efficient way, i.e. where you killed a specific person with a hammer someone else may chose to make the death look like an accident. Hope this helps dude

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 debuts Zombie mode gameplay

I aint exactly a cod fan but I aint here to bash it. People moaning that Infinity Ward are the better of the two? Innovation seems lacking in IW online (bar some tweeks). At least Treyarch are not afraid to try something different with an existing formula. Fans wanted improved (or even better I suppose I should say) zombies and thats exactly what they got.
If you dont like zombies you got a good 2 other game modes to play. Surely thats a win/win for a cod fan??

@Cjail If I'm honest dude I felt none of my choices came back to bite me in the ass/or reward me through the entire series. ME 1 set the tone so well and although I really enjoyed 2 and 3 (even though as the series went on the rpg elements where almost gone by 3. Talking to people is too much hard work?? Just walk near someone for a go here scan this quest) Sarens story could be told on it's own.

I did play Spec Ops, enjoyed it but never finished it. As I work with games I find myself getting bored with them very quickly these days. Nothing can keep me playing for that long any more (except maybe Dark Souls). Was an interesting concept but put into one of the most lazy type of games. The dreaded military shooter.

@Cjail Don't worry dude, Mass Effect 1 has a good enough story in it's own right. It's my fave of the 3 by miles as it feels like the only 'proper' rpg. But I completely understand where you are coming from in regards to choices. I thought saving the Rachni queen would come back on me whether it be good or bad but nothing. Fucking nothing. It seems they where too concerned on bringing new fans with each installment than making our imported saves feel like our own.

@skankyjoe Cheers, may go back there now. DLC will be a day one for me, Dark Souls is easily one of my favorite games ever. Simply because I never feel cheated in death (Well, unless Ornstein and Smough are involved) it's always my fault. And the complete lack of hand-holding is liberating although it can be intimidating to new players

@Kami God dude you have no idea how different the staff will be in the upcoming months. I pride myself on my product knowledge but in this current climate that takes a back seat to salesman ability. I suck at selling, you want an honest opinion on something your about to spend 40 quid on then I'll give it to you (that's what she said) but they would rather I sell you the game, keep my opinion to myself. Then attach a controller, some microsoft points and a pre-order or 12. In their words 'the staff here are good, not great'. Quite a few are useless who, as many of you say, don't have a clue what they are selling. These are the ones the company want to keep. Blind leading the blind.
