  • Already managed to pick it up? Really?

    Released yesterday, or so they say. Wal-Mart, doesn't have it, and online says "out of stock". Best Buy said the 20th by 2pm, and nothing. EBgames says the 21st, and Target says the 22nd.

    When officially can I give this company my money? Ugh, so frustrating. I'm supposed to get a call from Wally when it comes in, usually by UPS at noon. We'll see.....

    Reviews don't look all that bad, most of which should be patched, but come on, release a game that doesn't need patched to really enjoy.... We waited how many years for this, 2 months wasn't going to kill us.

  • "While your enemies might not be accurate from long range, they'll have the advantage of infinite bullets"

    I hate games that cheat. And this doesn't even seem necessary! It's all the extra grating because this seems to be one of those Counting Bullets games.

    So basically, they can fire forever upon you, you can't do the same. Sneaking up and killing someone silently before they detect you and waste precious bullets trying to kill you doesn't pay off in the looting department (I assume, since they have infinite bullets), and the AIs tactics can be (==most likely is) dumbed down -- after all, they don't have to evaluate whether to fire or not; they have no downside to doing it.
