Hitman Absolution sucks (So far)

Iím so disappointed. I was so excited for this game but Iím just finding almost everything about it frustrating which is what makes this even more disappointing because I still hold Blood Money as one of my all time favorites.

Firstly, taking a disguise is about as useful as punching myself in the dick repeatedly since everyone is always suspicious of you. I mean fair enough that certain outfits may be suspicious, but when Iím dressed as a cop during a manhunt, is everyone really suspect me as a fake considering that thereís another 100 dressed the same in the area? Itís so annoying how theyíre made it almost entirely useless without wasting instinct.

Secondly, the game feels like itís trying to reinvent Hitman, when it never needed it. It just needed something like Hitman Blood Money 2. It feels like itís combining elements from Assassinís Creed and Splinter Cell Conviction which is fair enough, but Hitman wasnít just a stealth game. It was about smarts and creativity, trying to find ways to kill your target with out being detected.

The story has proven to be largely uninteresting as well. Aside from 47ís voice acting most of it seems either dumb or stereotypical voices and that Texan guy? If I get to, Iím gonna stab him as many times as I can. Then waste all my ammo shooting his body, why? Because his voice is annoying and his character is boring and frustrating at the same time.

Just my opinion. Iím gonna try and finish this game. Then trade it in and go buy Blood Money again, either way. Iím largely not liking this game.   read

Thoughts on Resident Evil 6

Reading reviews and watching the reaction to Resident Evil 6 was interesting. The majority opinion was that people hated it. Words I saw a lot in reviews included bloated, generic, boringÖ blah blah blah. People hated it basically.

I donít blame them, I thought Resident Evil 6 was disappointing but for other reasons. My main complaint is how itís just an action game. I wonít go in to the whole Ďmainstream horror isn't scary and sucksí argument I have with myself on a regular basis but I blame Call of Duty for Resident Evil 6ís failure. No really,

As a game, Resident Evil was fine, gameplay was smooth, quick and straight forward, but it wasnít Resident Evil. People seems mainly frustrated at what Resident Evil has become as opposed to what the series was. People wanted Survival horror, true fear. They got a third person shooter that swapped taliban for parasite infected soldiers.

Itís hard to state my overall disappointment. I like the game from a game play angle, but it lacks in almost everywhere else. Except Leonís campaign. Honestly, Iíd rather see a slow, puzzle based style of Resident Evil. Like the old games, because theyíre more fun. All we get is these mindless closed off shooters.

"Hey let's move away from the genre we're so popular because of and become a more mindless shooter game because there aren't enough of those on the market already!"

The problem is, we get games like this because of Call of Dutyís monster sales. The fact that it sells so well is why other people look at it and start to copy ideas or styles from it hoping to jump on the bandwagon, and instead we get a game that isnít made how the developer wants it, but based on what sells.[img]

Oh, and don't get me started on Dead Space 3. Yuck.   read
