Am I the only one who was seriously fucking disappointed with Terrible Houseguests 2? I mean come the fuck on. First of all, it was bashing Modern Warfare 2 ever since conception (I don't like that game too much, but I'll get to my point.) and yet basically became everything it insulted. It has the shity bullet lag, that fucking stupid instant-knife shit, a terrible community - oh and the best part, "HURG IF MW2 REMOVES LEAN, LET'S ONE UP THEM AND REMOVE PRONE DURGG DUDHDHDDH."
Yeah, and prone being gone. Fuck. That. Retards complain that it's "DOI TO PREVENT SNIPORS FROM DOMNATING DURG" well guess what asshole? Now it's worse, because if you actually DO take sniper fire, you can't take cover behind fucking shit. I remember in BF2 being shot at by some typical bad sniper, and diving behind a little foot tall brick wall that saved my ass. Now, you just duck down behind some rock and pray your stupid fucking Vladimir Putin medic ass isn't sticking his bright red beret ou- dead, never mind I was apparently.
And how about the OBSESSION with "DESTRUCTION 2.0". Have you ever looked at the bases? Do you see HOW MANY FUCKING EXPLOSIVE BARRELS ARE LITTERED ABOUT? It's like a fucking shity James Bond villians hideout. Every building, explosive barrel, every cover, explosive crate, every back entrence wall, MASSIVE EXPLOSIVE TANK.
It feels like a gimmick being forced down my throat.
The fucking motion sickness inducing 55' field of view, the two layers of Bloom that cause you to be blinded by literally every lightsource in exsistance, the asinine huge muzzle flash that blinds you too. Yes, yes I know, you can fix Bloom and the FoV in the settings.ini, and I did.. and my god the game actually looks GOOD with Bloom set to False because it still looks like there still is some in the game.. which is why I think they double layered it. Increasing the FoV to about 80 or 90 actually makes it look a hell of a lot better too. I mean sure fine we can fix that, but shouldn't those have been options since launch?
And speaking of launch, Awful Corporation 2 really got ahead of itself too. Like a child tripping on his own feet out of excitement. It's been like two months and that MEGA LAUNCH PATCH hasn't even come out yet. I think it's due in a week though.
Oh yeah, and the tiny little fucking maps. Don't you love it when you try to flank around some sniper asshole clusterfuck, and you step outside the BATTLEFIELD for a split second, get TOTALLY BLINDED by a black screen, and have ten seconds to GET BACK TO THE FIGHT before "HEY MAN THE WRATH OF GOD WILL STRIKE YOU DOWN OOOP, TOO LATE YOU'RE DEAD." "EPIC FAIL". Why the fuck did they put that stupid shity meme in the game. Only assholes use "Fail". And now it is permanently burned into the game, and can never be undone unless the developers remove it. Which they probably wont.
And yeah, I'll admit, since launch and the godawful servers and horrid lag, there have been some patches, and they've done wonderful things. I actually really like the game now. But the core issues still royally piss me off. What the fuck kind of soldier am I? Who the fuck can't lay prone? Are they all clones of some asshole with a deformed spine? If they went prone, would they never get back up? Fuck. And why are there so few character models? Oh look, an American medic with a handlebar moustache, oh look, Vladimir Putin the russian medic. Oh look, the black engineer guy. And what's worse is Dice/EA said in some faggy twitter that they were NEVER going to put prone in the game.
It all feels like an infants version of BF2 with nice graphics, tiny ass maps, and half the players. But after these patches, it really is a pretty enjoyable game, especially after the most recent patch that's really fixed up that horrid bullet lag issue.. it just could have been so much better though. Maybe it's just a learning experience for them with Battlefield 3.
