    More Carrier Command!

    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/06/14/hands-on-with-carrier-command/

    Look, I realise that I'm probably the only person who thinks this is great, seeing as you'd need to be

    a) over 30
    b) probably own an Amiga

    to even remember the original, but this could be seriously cool. It's like a vehicular combat/strategy/super-mecha-battleship game, and all of those things happen at the same time.

    I'm really hoping for a demo. And possibly a joystick. And free DLC that adds multiplayer.

    Fishman

    did you ever play Iron Wolves?

    No, no I did not.

    Also, Nimrod: Yes, yes very much so. Hostile Waters is pretty much unacknowledged homage/remake of Carrier Command, but without the license. Hostile Waters owes more to Carrier Command than Bioshock does to System Shock.

    Although HW gets bonus credit for Tom Baker and half the cast of Blake's 7. That was just icing.

    I was a little worried that they'd go the Assassin's Creed route of having a cliffhanger every game.

    No cliffhanger at all

    It has been a while since I played a game that has done this

    Yeah I'd like to see a source on this because I'm not finding it.

    I, too, would like information about this maybe thing.

    I think, but I'm probably wrong, he is referring to notch promising all alpha testers all future versions of minecraft and minecraft is now getting released over XBLA which is causing some controversy I guess?

    I get that, that's why i read a plot write up and stuff from several different sites. I'm not going into it completely blind story wise. And honestly the game does a pretty good recap once you get back from Rome.
    Other then being kind of silly, i have no issue with the plot. Infamous' plot was silly and i loved that game.

    you could ignore all aspects of the AC story and be better off for it. Just play the ones you want to play.

    Yeah there's a reason I didn't ever intend on getting a first-gen 3DS. Waiting until DSLite proved to be worth it and I suspect the next 3DS will be similarly improved.

    Not too surprising since the Nintendo already announced it will use a proprietary format.

    I am something like 14 hours into Brotherhood. It was $40 from XBL's game market, and only took about 3 hours to download.

    This game is good. I may be losing steam. I have no idea how far I am through this game.

    I suck at playing games like this. I play them like I would a fucking Bethesda RPG, meaning I make my own fun while nibbling at the quests like a mouse on a cookie. I drink that shit in slowly. Unfortunately, I sometimes lose interest far before finishing because of this. It's like I'm terrified of parts of the mini map which progress the main story. The sad part is, those really are the most well-thought out and most fun portions of the game.

    I'm pretty sure this is a negative side effect of too many great RPG/Open world games wherein you usually hear the line "If you just focus on the main quest, bla bla bla, 10 hours...explore and do sidequests...30 hours." I tend to hang around too long because I don't want to rush through this stuff and as a result, lose steam as a result. And yes, I realize Brotherhood is a long game in itself. That's probably part of the problem, given how I was playing through it.

    edit: Oh, this game get harder? It's a bit easy, apart from some missions where stealth is required. I always have plenty of arrows, smoke bombs, bullets, shin kicks, etc. to easily handle any amount of enemies. The medicine bag which holds over a dozen "instant-100%-restore health packs" doesn't help.

    Eh, it's pretty easy the whole way through. The most "difficult" parts are the Romulus Lairs, which are challenging because they're essentially puzzles. None of them crazy hard, though.

    Also. AssBro's MP is where its at. Easily my favorite MP game this gen.

    The challenge of Brotherhood is staying hidden and getting assassinations done efficiently not staying alive.

    I suppose.

    But I also have a gun, and a sword and butcher knife, and a crossbow and a horde of assassins who will jump in and ruin people's shit whenever I went. And a ton of armor that I've invested in.

    I'm pretty stealthy, and in most missions I love playing the assassin and walking up slowly to slip someone a poison blade. That really is fun for me. But I'm bad at tying one hand behind my back if the game isn't forcing me. If they give me a gun, which happens to be alarmingly fun to use against suits of armor, damn I want to use it. Call me an Assassins Creed dilettante I guess.
