Where did all the strategy go?

High level 5v5 Counter-Strike is most certainly a tactical shooter; nothing "barely" about it.

Think I'm going to play a little Rainbow 6 tonight though. Maybe it will re-kindle my lost love of the FPS genre.

@FenderMaster As a general rule, I agree with you. In this case though there is no stout better in Ireland. O haras is decent for one or two but a bit to complex for a full day session. Oyster stout is complete and utter piss water.

There is no "cream" stout in Ireland that is better. Beamish is Guinness's only competition and its muck. Guinness original porter however is nowhere near the best and the UK has an exceedingly good range of excellent porters.

Now, its paddy's day eve eve; pissup time

Guinness is the best stout in Ireland. However, it is only good in Ireland and in old men pubs at that. Yorkshire, London, New York or anywhere else will give you a horrible pint.

If I can still recognise my mouse on Monday night I will pick up a few deals

DICE: Battlefield 2142 veterans will feel "right at home" with BF4 Carrier Assault

4 years ago

If this turns out to be even the slightest bit like 2142 Titan mode then I'll buy BF4. Titan mode almost single handedly broke the spell of CS1.6 over me and for that I am eternally grateful. However it also made me drop out of college and have no social life. Worth.

Still remember the day Steam was launched. Hated the thing. My 56k took ages to download Counter-Strike (1.5?) and DoD. Ahh the good ol'days when internet was slow, new games came only at Christmas from your mother and the worry about final school exams was always "one more death" away. Thanks Valve, you really have shaped my life to an extent.

Vaat puts up great content. The "Prepare to Cry" videos are really worth a watch. If you actually let yourself get emotionally invested in the story then killing some of the bosses becomes a very sad affair.

Alot of people give Bioshock 2 stick but I really enjoyed the gameplay. Whenever I received an ability that upgraded the use of the drill arm I went for that. Afer I was about 30% through the game I exclusively used the drill arm. It made the game incredibly fun. Give it a try!

Halo 4 review

Great! I know so much now. I know now that the story is about killing aliens and Cortana tells how to get to the next objective. Brilliant. There is nothing else that really goes on in Halo, is there? Good thing the entire Halo experience is measured by how the single player story is delivered through a voice in your helemt thats going a bit mad. Grand. Just what I wanted to learn from the review.

Former hardcore player here but gave up not long after Source came out which left me feeling cold.

I'll start off by saying that I find CS:GO better than Source but due weapon tweaks I couldn't call it quite as "skillful" as 1.6. Visually it is more pleasing to the eye (except for a few dodgy character models - mushrooms heads) but annoyingly keeps similar recoil levels as Source. This means you can run and shoot with an AK and still actually hit someone. This is certainly a 'no no' from the 1.6 old guard (and personally for me too). However, it's hard to put my finger on it but the feel of the game just seems that bit more like 1.6 than Source did despite it being on the same engine.

For those who skipped Source I'll say this, give it a go, give it some time and I think you'll grow to love it almost (but porbably never as much) as much as 1.6. Those of you who started out on Source than this is just the natural progression. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.

With the scale of the tank battles hopefully people will work together and get three man teams going.

Square Enix: new Final Fantasy games "take precedence" over Final Fantasy 7 remake

rottingyoda

6 years ago

I'd be happy with a reasonable HD update and by that I mean something along the quality of the in-game FF7 FMVs. Other than that, I would hate to see them tamper with the ATB system and replace it with (in my opinion) a lesser system. Also, if they did a remake and included voice acting, I would like it to be OPTIONAL. I really liked the voices from Advent Children but have dislikes most characters voice from subsequent games.

As I've said for years, if they make a very good quality remake it will single handedly make me purchase that console and probably make it my console for that entire gaming generation.
