Whenever i play with randoms they always steal my damn kills haha. Wish i could stab em in the damn back.

On a side note, are you buying your games digitally or hard copies?

Well, I had a Buy Two Used and get One free coupon that needed using from GameStop, so I bought these guys hard copy. I would be VERY interested in going all digital though, once the XB1 allows external storage and I get a bigger PS4 HDD.. I may very well consider making the jump.

I don't have much space for hard copies anymore, it prevents me from trading them.. And I'll never have to switch disks again.

Also, I'd say this game gives Killzone a run for it's money character model wise. Killzone obviously has much nicer set pieces but this game is pretty insane when it comes to how well characters look.

On the downside.. Every damn bad guy looks the same. That's always bothered me in games.. Not sure why as it's a nit pick.. They're cannon fodder so why should it matter right?

I can only imagine how much more improved Ryse II will be.

Yea there are very, very few enemy types and variations with the moves they use. Diversity in enemies is a tough thing to ask for tho, which is why so many games give us the generic, balaclava wearing enemies. Hopefully this gen we will see more diverse enemies and NPC's. Theres a game coming out in 2016 called Kingdom Come, that is said to feature completely unique NPC's, down to the outfits and facial features. Like no 2 people in a town will look, or dress the same. Maybe more of that is to come with these new consoles.

Interesting. That new LOTR game also seems to be taking a different approach.. Orcs look different/change over time. We'll see if that happens or not but I remain hopeful. Sometimes I'm just too picky... Like.. I get annoyed in a game if I'm running through snow and there's no track.. or if I'm in a FPS and I look down and can't see feet.

Im the exact same way. Im extremely picky when it comes to details. Im constantly b****ing about the lack of weapon slings in games. Im tired of all my characters either a) having the magic pockets that hold all these weapons or b) having the weapon just 'stick' to their back. I wanna see the damn slings or holsters etc.

I remember when Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway was coming out and Gearbox was talking about how you play a solider, not just a camera and a weapon, you are an actual person in the world and if you moved the camera down you could see your body. That was going to be how you would tell how many grenades you had left or how many mags you had left. Unfortunately all that got scrapped. But imo, that should be the standard going forward this gen. Detail, detail, detail.

Only if you really dig the Coliseum mode. Thats all the season pass is for, just MP stuff. Get some skins and arenas. Think its like 6 skins and 6 arenas in total or something like that?

Yea it is, I just booted up the game and got all the content that's part of the season pass. Sweet.

Also noticed the Damocles/Praetorian MP skins are only .99 cents. Bought that s**t real quick.

Yea it really is, altho i noticed the cost of the booster packs have gone down, so it does seem like they are doing some sort of balancing at least in terms of the items you unlock. The survival mode seems to hand out a good bit of XP. I played two matches of it today and went up 4 XP levels.

But a double XP weekend wouldn't hurt. Im like a 64ish and iv got a looong way to go before i can get those top tier items.
