Its the weaponry. He's finally found a place where he can express himself.

That was undoubtedly date rape. I don't recall consenting. Actually, I barely recall anything.

It's another sterling example of how bad the writing in the game is.

"This guy has a gf/fiancee, but we need him to bang this chick that appears to hate his guts. How do we do this?"
"How about they hand you some unknown substance and you drink it without question?"
"Perfect."

BTW, I'm surprised I haven't seen it mentioned yet, but this guy also tried to play a LOST vibe with this game.

The first Borderlands, and aside from the shitty camera bullshit, Burnout Paradise.

Aside from being burned out, the pacing is atrocious and depending where you are, the character unlikeable/unrelateble.

Saw the info on TA or they checked out your activity on Xbox Live.

I know I was keeping an eye on you, plus it's not hard knowing you were playing Multiplayer on Far Cry 3 from my wall.

And I too have to express my surprise at you getting 100% on a game. But this is certainly a game that makes it easy to get the 100% - you pretty much get it all just by playing.

I knew it wasn't many games but I think it says a lot about FC3 being your "2nd" completion

I think you hit it all right there, I love the AC series, in fact its one of my favorite games series of all time but Connor is not Ezio and wow is the pacing terrible.

Figured you liked it but was genuinely interested in your take, especially the RPG and open world elements (I guess i'm still looking for my next Fallout 3/NV)

Creeping on the friends list in-between halo games, noticed you were hitting up multi and saw your 1000 GS.

Oh, and Kevin, if you're having trouble with the 3rd person in AC3, then this game may be a good transition to AC3, as it's a first person AC3.

I don't know about the story, it must be written by a guy that was/is on LSD... No wonder it references Alice so much...

Yes, it says that the developers didn't decide to have some terrible achievements. If they had changed the Relics one to collecting them all it'd be over. Too many are time sinks, grinds, or very difficult.

Mission start/Cut scene/gameplay/checkpoint/cut scene/gameplay/cut scene

BTW, they need to slap developers silly who think cut scene/walk from point a to point b/cut scene is worth anyone's time.

I'm making fun of you because I feel like my comments speak for themselves. If you have a specific question, shoot.

Nice try, but it certainly wasn't going to updated Sunday

I finally finished up the coop part of Far Cry this weekend.

I've been playing the multiplayer a bit too.

Found the decoders and found out you have to download an iOS app to unlock the second decoder. The iOS app also gives you access to the decoders when your not on your Xbox.

I see Kevin has started Far Cry 3. I can send him gifts instead of Dakar.

Hey Kevin, say Hi to Buck for me! God, I couldn't wait to kill that dude.

You still playing???

I noticed you reached level 75 in Coop/MP, so you've maxed your level. You like the MP that much... or you just haven't got anything else to play?

Honestly, I like The Grid and the app is something to do from time to time. I might revisit it later.
