I turned on Xbone and it has Catlover (my only friend) compared to me w/ our avatars.

Catlover is sporting a red, Red Dead Redemption T-shirt, khakis, and a baseball cap - He looks fairly marvelous. My avatar is wearing a green T-shirt w/ a Irish nametag, camo pants, and a cowboy hat, and a mullet hairdoo. So I'm looking pretty dambed good too.

I'm 385 gamer points ahead of Catlover 8-)

Ulzana, sorry but you suck, dude 8-) Maybe try to be a better gamer, kill as many electronic ppl as I do, improve yourself, and stop being such a pussy 8-)

:lol:


Challenge Accepted. ;)

I've been slacking. I tend to play the same game endlessly until I wear it out - limiting my cheevo opportunities.

The game isn't that bad. I won't give it thumbs down.

It does the same thing other 'stealth' fps games do which is:

I'm hidden below a 'parapet' for lack of a better description. I've spent 10 minutes sneaking into such a sweet position undetected. I have LOS on the target. But when I hold the left trigger to aim - I'm aimed at the fucking parapet! So I have to stand up in broad daylight to get a bead :roll: Every enemy then spots me (no shit!) standing up like an asshole and I get gunned down.

Well that's just fucking great isn't it :roll:

I don't reckon IRL I could get eyes on, slide up my rifle and get the clear shot while still hidden could I. No. I have to stand up like an asshole and draw fire. Loveley :roll:



I am disappoint.



This is an artifact introduced by 3rd person view when the devs insist that the bullet ray be drawn from the barrel while the camera hovers 50 feet in the air offering a completely different aim line.

The best way to solve this is to never make shitty 3rd person view shooter games.

In fact it cannot be called FPS - First Person Shooter, since it isn't. It's a 3rd person bullshit game. I hate how they always want to go with 3rd person, but it isn't as bad if it's a melee oriented fantasy hack and slash game where the butt of a female night elf warrior fills the screen.

I had to chase some guy down, fro'd im the back of the truck and hauled his ass to my boss.

She said:

TELL US

I'm waiting for my lawyer

THEY TOLD YOU THAT IF YOU GET ARRESTED WAIT FOR A LAWYER?

yes

WE AREN'T THE POLICE AND YOU AREN'T UNDER ARREST

:+: throws down a pencil and a note pad :+:

YOU GIVE US THE INFORMATION WE NEED - OR ALL YOUR FINGERS





I've changed my opinion of this game to 2 thumbs way up. I think it's on sale too. A good buy.

This game really is a 10 of 10. These guys outdid themselves. This game is amazing.

Not only is the story good, the gameplay is awesome. Unless you hate FPS games this one is a no brainer buy

Started a new game and been binge playing it. They rebuilt the chopper controls in a patch and now those are usable. Before I'd have to tilt/throttle/tilt/balance, etc to keep moving forward (sort of). Now I mash the stick forward and she moves quick. Landing is easier too. This game is tits.

Catlover, this might be a spoiler. I hope it isn't but I've got to ask: Have you found Predator? I was surprised by this, I think it's badass.

I tried with my nephew but we couldn't kill him. He's a giant bullet sponge. It's taken some people hours to kill him. Cool Easter Egg but so challenging it became a chore.

This thread is over a year old now and I still play Ghost Recon. Haven't beat it yet, still play in the mood. It's a good value.


CatLover, when I play Far cry 5 (ur my only bud) xbone lists u as a playa at start and ur 185 points to my 15. Got the weekend off I'm about to dedicate some play time to correct.
