Made it to Roswell. Is it strange that I really hope Denver Airport shows up as an epicentre of all the different military Areas?

I'm guessing everyone's going into stages guns a blazin' no matter if there's a commander present or not?

:( Did Machine Games tone down the ultra violence? I can't recall enemies falling into pieces very good. I go for dismembering shots and... nothing. They die, but with limbs still attached!

Hmm. I assumed I was getting an endless procession of enemies until I took alerted commander down. Will have to try it in a variety of areas to see how it plays out. (I've yet to have one come after *me*.)

:lol: So, this goes places, huh. Terror Billy is feeling like his old self again. The lead up to it was amazing *even though* though it was foreshadowed.

And the tune which plays after Gun. Key. Run. :wub: :datass:

Toward the end of the stage, did you spot that cart full of the failed auditionees? :cry: :lol:

What got me was the internal dialogue afterwards, when you properly regain control of Blazko. I mean, how does he not make a change to his plans and add offing Hitler to his to do list? Granted going by the cutscene he isn't long for the world :slol: :dread: , and taking care of him then wouldn't be the same as taking care of him whilst the war was still in progress, but... y'know? It'd still be worth doing, wouldn't it? But I'm still on that stage (just landed on Venus proper) so I guess there's still time to somehow kerplode that space station...

Just finished the first game, loved it even if it did look ugly as hell. Really want to play the 2nd now and see how it continues. BJ can't half take a beating. Stabbed, shot, stabbed through the chest and slowly sliced open and a grenade.

If you passed up on it, you may also want to check out Doom (2016). Different dev, similarly bonkers/awesome gunplay.

It has fantastic art direction tho, i wouldnt say its really ugly. But it DOES have motherfuckin' HORRIFIC aliasing issues. I fired it up last night as i plan on replaying it once i finish my NG+ of Wolf 2 and i was shocked at how bad the aliasing is. Gotta look into a way to add proper anti aliasing to it.

Id also wholeheartedly recommend Wolfenstein: The Old Blood DLC. Its an awesome standalone bit of DLC that acts as a prequel to TNO. Its more zany than TNO but its awesome. It feels like a HD re imagining of the best levels from Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

Wargh! I almost messed up big time: saved game before pain in arse boss, allowed game to download new update, got annoyed at boss and logged out of game, moments later logged back in and updated game. Game restarted back at start of level :!: because the versions of the game are different :fp: What I hope is the solution: delete game, reinstall, update to first patch, try to reload save again, don't update to latest patch until done with pain in arse boss. :ngh:



edit: :cry: it didn't work. Seems to download both original patch and 1.02 together. :fp:

I know the console versions have this adaptive resolution thing that makes it look like balls at certain points. Can't imagine that would be the case on PC.

Nah its just really strawberry floating bad aliasing. You can add in anti aliasing using the console but its still not great. I just didn't remember it being that bad back when I played it at first. Dynamic resolutions can die in a fire tho, god that's a strawberry floating horrible way to keep a stable FPS!

:lol: :toot: Why did she rip her kit off like that?

Really enjoyed that. Gunplay was as good as W:TNO but I don't recall ever being at a loss as to what to do next in TNO, whereas with TNC there were a number of occasions where I was running around looking for ways to progress the mission. Part of that is because the game actually gives you multiple (though slightly superficial) ways to make progress in the latter half of the game and that's great, but the other reason is it's just not clear what you're supposed to do next. I'm all for minimal hand holding but it's gone too far the other way when I find myself running about like a headless chicken.

Still a very, very good game and one which I hope gets an expansion.

Well....that's certainly one way to solve the problem of BJ slowly dying from his injuries. :lol:

In one call Anywa makes to BJ before that happens, she talks about how the violence is starting to make her "excited" :lol:
At least thats why i assumed it happened. Like jsut when you thought youd seen all the weirdness the game had to throw at you, that happened!

Yeah i honestly think my only complaints about the game are the weapon wheel is dreadful and can spoil gunfughts at times when you get stuck fiddling around with it, there needed to be a bigger diversity in environments, there were far too many levels jsut set in mechanical looking Nazi bases (i was so bummed we didnt get a full on mission set in Roswell killing off KKK members), but thats about it. Hopefully the DLC is good, but id prefer if they jsut took 5 or 6 months and came out with an Old Blood style expansion really
