Well no shit, the same thing could be said for Halo as it has been coming on not as regular but still its the same thing. But Halo felt fresh, new where as Blops felt dated and boring.

Hitman: Absolution - Fun game, with some irrational gameplay elements. For example, the scoring system. Makes sense on paper, but getting a high score almost forces you to play the game in the most boring way possible.

There are some really cool "environmental kill" scenarios set up in the game, but the scoring system penalizes you for using them. There is one moment in the game, where you have the option to hide in a giant birthday cake, and pop out to kill everyone while they're singing "Happy Birthday" to some jerk. It's clear the developers want you to try this out. It's an awesome set-piece moment. However, you get penalized for nearly everything involved in the sequence. You killed five "non-targets". Penalty. Five guys spotted you. Penalty. Disguise blown. Penalty. You killed a civilian. Big fucking penalty. It makes no goddamn sense.

The whole "disguise" mechanic is fucked too, and the "checkpoint" sytem is the worst since the original Dead Rising, but I've rambled on for long enough.

It can still be fun, but it's hard to ignore the game punishing you for thinking logically. This game basically tells you "If it looks fun, don't do it".

6.5/10

No way. Halo has always, well, it used to, have more focus on the campaign side of things. Great story and characters. Hell, I can't even play the COD campaigns. They are so boring and lifeless. Halo 3 jumped boat, apparently 4 is good though. But it's still far more multi-player focused from what I've seen.

Started AC:R loving it, playing as an older Ezio rules. That Hook Blade gizmo is great too. It just feels more streamlined all over. It's got everything that made the last two games great, and more. I do enjoy the little 'Den Defence' things too. I'm not far into it so I'll see how it plays out.

LOL at the hipster shit talk against Black Ops 2.

I've been gaming for many, many, many years and nobody is going to convince me that Black Ops 2 is a bad game.

Leave it to the Halo fan boys to bash the COD. How original.

I beat Halo 4 and it was actually pretty decent storywise.

As far as the bashing of Blops, it did nothing really to change the format or formula at all. It still the same old shit, at least 343 tried to change Halo which made it the best Halo game (I don't have live so I cant speak on the MP) but it was fresh in my eyes, something that COD (both MW and Blops) can't not speak to.

Besides, both games suck compared the Lego Lord of the Rings.

I've just got a console and haven't played a wrestling game in many, many years. Anyone know is WWE 13 is any good? I imagine wrestling games could be good online with mates.

Well, with these franchises, it all comes down to MP. If I were to judge Halo 4's campaign, it would all add up to "Good, but safe."

The campaign is fine, but nothing as great as the reviews would lead you to believe. Take Master Chief away, and it's all far too familiar. The Cortana storyline is forced, and if it weren't for the cutscenes, you wouldn't care who you were playing as.

I beat the campaign is 7 hours. Not game of the year, by any stretch. The MP is admittedly awesome, but that is what you're paying for. The campaign is kind of pathetic.

Going back on it, the enemies were kind of all throw aways. The throw away line about how these convent are some what splinter cell or some shit? Or the metroid prime baddies the Prometheums. The Didact was another throw away villain who I QTE to death.

I guess when they updated the graphics for HAlo 4 they gave Cortana a body upgrade, hips and big tits, couldn't take what she said seriously with that get up.

Though I am glad the Flood did not show up in the main storyline. Can't stand those fuckers.
