What game/demo did I play? It was the FEAR 2: Reborn demo.

Okay, I recently finished FEAR 2 and was disappointed that this awesome scene (which I shall describe) from the demo wasn't in the final game. This seemed weird to me. I then looked up videos from the demo and, to my surprise, can't find it in the demo either. What I remembered was a bit where you're in some boring skyscraper making your way through what may have been some fairly bland, generic offices, when suddenly the whole building tips over and everything's left at an awkward angle, with you having to now pick your way through the now-ruined building, with crap strewn everywhere. I'm sure I didn't dream it, does anyone else have any ideas?

    You might have been dreaming...

    Or playing Gears of War 2, but it probably wasn't that...

    It's like the N-word and the C-word had a baby, and it was raised by all the bad words for Jews.

    It was definitely an FPS. I even remember thinking "man, this demo's kind of boring" up until that point, when BAM, building tumbles and things were cool again.

    edit: BAHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    I'm trying to remember how long ago this was, probably about 3 or 4 years.

    Well, based on the clues, I'd say you were watching Inception.

    That actually sounds like a section of Uncharted 2.

    Or Bulletstorm.

    I'd love it to be either of those, but I've never played any Uncharteds, and Bulletstorm is too recent. I was kind of hoping someone would come in with something like "it was in the FEAR 2 demo, but was cut because people were offended".

  • Skull2185Skull2185 Smile Puddin'! Registered User regular
    Well, it definitely wasn't FEAR 2.

    I can't think of any recent FPS's that took place in a toppled office building. One of the Rainbow6 Vegas games, possibly? (probably not)

    I've forgotten it's name as well, but that sounds a lot like that FPS that still hasn't been released. Set in Dubai after a gigantic sandstorm and most people have been evacuated. Might have been called "Sand"?

    Ohhhhhh, Spec Op: something...

    "The Line" I think.

    Did you play the demo on a console or PC?

    I was fairly sure it was on the 360, but that might be tied to me thinking it was the FEAR 2 demo which I did play on the 360. However since my PC has been a cumbersome piece of crap for the past few years, console is most likely.

    I may well have played that, looking up a video now.

    :lol:

    I'm sure you would have remembered an FPS with Gryphons, Werewolves and Minotaurs...

    Yeah, sadly that doesn't look like it. No big worry if we can't find it, if I've not already bought it then I doubt it's something I was ever desperate to get.
    edit: I do remember playing 40th Day (and the first one, too), but I'm fairly sure it wasn't either of those games.

    This is in the FEAR 2 "Reborn" DLC, not in the main game. You didn't dream it. :)

    So.. how the hell do I know about that?! Was any of it released as a demo, because I know I've never bought that. Either way, THANK YOU, that is great to hear. If people want, we can now talk about FEAR 2?

    Spec OPs only had a multiplayer BETA which was pretty good and then the game was delayed for three years.

    This has made me interested in FEAR 3. I never played 1 or 2, should I? Thoughts on 3?

    ...friends? :(
    HAH! Just looked on my download history, there was a Reborn demo. Well now I just feel like the mayor of 'tardville.

    Right then, anyone want to talk FEAR 2/Reborn? I was really enjoying FEAR 2 at the start, then I couldn't help but feel it turned into a slog. I guess I'd have liked them to do more with the destroyed city, than to funnel me through yet more tunnels and research facilities. Also it had the problem of giving you awesome weapons, and not nearly enough ammo to want to use them. The penetrator takes SO long to kill a man, and the AOE dude-melter was awesome, for both shots (hyperbole) that you actually get for it.

    edit: SkyTurnsRed, that's actually why I went and got FEAR 2. I loved the first one to bits, and was recently watching Helloween's LPs of the expansions with my girlfriend, and we decided that FEAR 3 would be good because of the co-op, but since I'd not actually played 2 besides the demo, decided I'd play that first if I could find it cheap. Was £14 on Games On Demand, so went with that. Will be getting 3 soon enough :)

    I just finished it. It's... interesting. Definitely fun, but much better if played Co-Op. Keep in mind, though, that ultimately the ending you get depends on who did better during said co-op.

    Also, it should be said that this feels quite different from past F.E.A.R. games, but that doesn't deter it from being quite decent. One big difference is there's an experience system in place with achievements per level that go toward giving you exp. It's refreshing in its own way, since you're not hunting down health and meter enhancements--they just happen as you progress.

    There are exp "treasures" though in the form of corpses that are... I dunno... infected? Taken over at some point? Well, whatever they are, they're dead and have white vapor coming off them. And they give you experience, so just roll with it.

    Edit Again: Damnit, I keep forgetting important things to add to this! Second player isn't another soldier with the ability to slow down time, he's the ghost of Paxton Fettel--you know, from the first game. And he can possess baddies for a finite amount of time for gun play, but otherwise just zaps them with his evil red beam of doom. Or picks them up with telekinesis and explodes them. Honestly, he's probably much cooler to play as.

    I didn't play the first one or the second, but the co-op sounds interesting. I like that approach. Thanks for the detailed description. :)

    I actually finished the game a few days ago on Steam. Is the dlc available for that version? I don't recall seeing anything tbh.

    Yeah. It'd be supremely bizarre if it didn't since the base game requires Steam to begin with.

    Oh wow nice. Thanks for that. Now I just need to work out why I don't have it already despite owning all the other fear stuff. I think I got the collection, hence the confusion.
