I started playing this today because it was free on the PS3 with my plus membership.. I did not expect so much racism. Wow. O_O The flying city looks amazing and the vigor powers are pretty cool.. but holy crap.. the racism.. wtf. This isn't really a spoiler here because you find out about this within the first 20 minutes or so of gameplay, but its like you are the FBI's most wanted and are being attacked by every citizen on a small flying country controlled by the KKK. :shocked:

 

Anyone else play this yet? What are your thoughts on it? I'm about 40 minutes in and I haven't gotten to Elizabeth yet.

Its a decent game so far. The controls are ok and the story is completely unique. The vigor powers are pretty awesome.. magic in an FPS sounds odd, but it works out great.

 

I must say this.. the controls do kind of suck tho. R3 is ADS.. circle is crouching. Running screws up your turning radius while running, noticeably. Shooting is R1, swapping guns is R2. Magic is L1, swapping magic is L2.. aside from being able to swap the L & R buttons from 1 & 2, there is no button mapping. R3 to ADS is a pain for me. I hate it when FPS games don't stick to the standard button layout. Even though I am getting used to it.. but I'm glad this is a single player game. This button layout for multiplayer would have been horrendous.

 

(edit) oops.

I was playing it a week or so ago when it finally released on PS Plus. The Racism didn't surprise be due to the fact I heard about it in previous spoilers. In fact I doubt Bioshock Infinite can really surprise me much.

 

The Racism did surprise me though in the way it happened before I got to my mission objective. That & the whole false shepherd thing which I didn't know about until playing it.

 

I still feel the need to get back into playing it. But don't feel the want to. The story lost my interest after going through a printing press. I'm at the statue where Comstock slays a serpent. Without anything amazing happening since Lucky Number 77 it just feels tedious.

 

The only other Bioshock I've played was Bioshock 2. I never beat that either. I remember getting offended by the roller coaster & ended up stop playing right there.

 

Which now that I think about it Bioshock seems to emphasis an exaggerated interpretation of the republican party. Not that they don't deserve it. But I don't feel the need to fight them at all. The republican party is usually wrong & they need to go away. That is all.

I mentioned this game to my older brother earlier and he told me the impressions he got were that the first 2 bioshock games were also like that.. one game was based on the exaggerated representations of the extreme left wing and another one for the extreme right wing.

 

I'll play this game through to the end because I want to see where it goes. The bioshock games seem to be popular and I've seen cosplay and other references to the games, so I might play the first 2 eventually just so I know what people are referring to.

      I've never played an Assassin's Creed game before. Does anyone know if this is a good price for all these games considering I'd have to use Uplay (my pc can play them fine)? Or would I be better off picking these up on console during a PSN sale?

      If you haven't played season 1 or 2, the trailer seems to be spoiler free and doesn't reference any of those events. WTF.. Jesus is in this!?

      I've been playing Prince of Persia since way back in the Broderbund days. And just as those classic games broke the barriers of cutting edge gaming back then, the new Prince of Persia does the same. Throwing aside the old side scrolling action and breaking new ground with such entirely unique gameplay, the Prince of Persia series is redifined with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
      The game is played in 3rd person perspective with camera controls so excellent, you will never miss out on any of the action. If you were to watch someone playing this, you would think the controls would be intimidating. But in fact, the controls are simple to learn thanks to the basic tutorial that assists you through the beginning scenes.
      The plot is great because of its simplicity.
      To quote a description from the publisher:
      Basically, everyone is turned into a sand demon, but as you play, you soon realize there are 2 others not affected by the Sands.. a young woman of the Maharajah kingdom named Farah and the evil Vizier. They both possess objects that protect them from the affects of the Sand, such as the Dagger has kept the Prince safe.
      After the Sands of Time are released, you quickly discover that the only way to destroy the sand demons is to absorb their sand into the Dagger of Time. The Dagger also has other abilities, such as if you were to die abruptly by a missed jump, the Dagger can rewind time at your discretion so you can make another attempt.
      The Dagger can do this as long as it has sand reserves. To refill the Dagger, simply kill another sand demon and absorb its sand. As you progress through the game, the Dagger will become stronger with every kill enabling you to do other feats than just rewinding time.
      The game is tied together with action and puzzle solving. For example: Kill all the enemies in the room, then get from point A to point B to progress to the next area. And this is were the Prince's abilities really shine. By doing combinations of wall running, jumping, swinging, climbing, pulling switches, hitting levers and wall jumping.. this game is sure to keep you entertained.
      With no major stage boundaries or level completion notices, Prince of Persia is a constant, fluid, adrenaline rush adventure.

      "Come, join us guardian. In a lifeless world where the only things that exist are you and the enemies that spawn. Ignore these wolves. You'll only see them in a cut scene anyway. Here, have a free gjallarhorn and don't notice any more flaws."

      No Bungie. No thanks. I already have that weapon and its pointless because its does so little damage to almost every enemy. I'm not paying you money for an upgraded version of the exact same weapon I bought on the last day I played your game. Good luck in the future. Maybe Destiny 2 will be good but I'm not a raid guy and I realized that you're all about raids and no significant in game plot. I'll pass. This is one of those games that if I want to know the story about, I'll watch it on youtube so I can skip 200 hours of gear grinding to watch a total of 2 hours of cutscenes and dialogue.
