GAME RAGE!!!
« on: January 20, 2015, 11:49:17 PM »
Ok ladies and gentlemen remember that one moment in a videogame where you just hit that immovable object and it made you throw your controller down and scream? What was it?

THIS WAS MINE. Took me days to beat him

Does the game freezing up on you without warning when you haven't saved in a few hours count? Because Fallout New Vegas does that to me frequently.

Same with Skyrim. I just defeated a dragon, after I completed a dungeon, and then the game freezes and I lose my fat loot and the last 2 hours of play.

Fallout Icouldn't tell you how to fix but totally know what you mean. For Skyrim I found turnig off the extra autosaves and just having the one at I believe every half hour fixes that.

Lately my rage has been with Shadow of Mordor. Uruk captains that seem to have all strengths and no weaknesses. Naturally those are the ones that I always come across. Then when I finally do take one down, the asshole comes back and kills me again later.

You have to get intel on the guy BEFORE you kill him or he comes back. I had a few different captains comeback a few times until I noticed that. Later in the game you can Brand them. That makes them your mind controlled minion and you can send them to take out other war chiefs.

Well that's actually a comfort. Like when I finally do figure out how to take down this surgeon prick who is immune to like everything he won't come back. Probably going to need a caragor but part of me wants to say he is a beast slayer too, or maybe just hates them. Might just have to light that jerk on fire.

Every captain has a weakness in blue. But I think the orc's are randomly generated.  Dark Blue means they take extra damage, while light blue is instant kill. Be sure to read them. I had a really tough guy, who I found out can be killed instantly by an arrow head shot.

I know he has some weakness but don't remember it exactly just know its not one of the normal ones. immune to ranged and stealth, vault breaker, parry or something like that, he may even be immune to more (want to say combat but doesn't seem legit.) Flurry attack might work now that i think of it, that is if I can stun him of course. Are you playing a PS3 or PS4?

They are from what i can tell having been able to play both. your system just won't have the issue mine does. I occasionally annoy too many Uruks and the system can't keep up. Guarantee of death when that happen, I've had it not even register any of my button inputs. Admittedly frustrating but I still enjoy the game.

Dark souls 2 made me smash an Xbox 360 controller against my table repeatedly until it finally splintered and broke. I don't even know why - I died just as much, and often just as cheaply, in Dark Souls 1, but somehow Dark Souls 2 made me violent. ^^'

They said it would be more Accessible by stripping off most of the layers of 'what does this do?' followed 3-4 hours later of 'well, shit, I fucked up four hours ago and this is now useless.'

Never said anything about making it easier. (Sidenote, if you want it to feel more like DS1, after Febuary 5th, joining the Covenant of Champions allows infinite enemy respawns)

Platinum Match, KH1.  Eventually, I resigned myself to the fact that I wouldn't 100% the game - then Mr. Oniya went and beat it on his playthrough.  We still joke about that one.  'What do I do now!?'  'I don't know - I never got that far!'

The Last Remnant is one for me. There's a boss battle, nearish the end of the game (Or so I assume with how the story is playing out...I still haven't gotten past it) that is ridiculously hard. Between his high damage and all of his minions out numbering your teams its hell to get past him. One time...just once I actually beat the boss, got all excited, and then, without a save point in between, you have to fight against all of your remnants that turn against you. I lost that battle pretty damn quick. I said fuck this game and haven't touched it since...that was like 2 or more years ago.

It's not really that either since they don't tell you anything past basic controls. :P

Also: Last Remnant has this nasty habit of scaling the boss fights and monsters as you level, and well... it's done badly. It's literally easier to beat the game if you never grind.

OT: FTL! Beautiful concept, not really a game.

ALSO: Black Flag's Kenway's Fleet. I can't 100% Black Flag without playing online, which is lame.

Aye, it is lame. I have to get multiplayer achievements to get the 100% band no one plays multiplayer on that game.

The new Shadow Warrior. I decided to play it through on Hard and.. Spoiler: They kind of screwed the pooch when it comes to scaling difficulty. :/

I love a challenging game, don't get me wrong - But when the challenge comes in the form of 'There is only 1 move that works, and you must spam it endlessly to win.' I get so angry. It's an awesome game during the first third, the 'intro sequence' if you will. Then comes the first boss, leaving a little to be desired. The second third is good, but.. It kind of feels a bit more rushed and less open-ended. The area you're in is also far more gray and dull. The second boss is perhaps the worst, mostly because of skewered hitboxes that don't always make sense. The third and final part of the game is just dreadful on hard or beyond. It's a First Person Shooter, and yet all your guns essentially become toys, and each level seems to have multiple sessions of 'Not one but TWO minibosses!' and even 3-5 at some points.

The main gimmick of the game is the fact that the Katana you have is pretty cool, yet I don't play FPS's for the melee, and I enjoyed the guns more. Imagine my disappointment when the game not only turned visually bland, but also forced me to use the Katana as the only viable weapon. And not even in an interesting way! It's just one move over and over again..

Right now for me it is in Dying Light.  One of the challenges involves you running around getting so many headshots on the zombies in a certain amount of time and I just can't freaking do it.  I am playing on a Xbox 1, and the shooting in this game seems more made for a computer, because I watched several people playing on PC and just cruising right through it.

Hmm.. I would have sworn that this thread would be all about Dark Souls... 

I think my monitor has the words "You Died" permanently burned into it.

Final Fantasy X remastered. The Omega ruins. There's only one save sphere at the beginning of the dungeon and its loaded with powerful enemies. I was cruising along, feeling great then BAM! Ambushed by two dark elementals and a spirit. The cast beserk on two party members. Which I didn't know they could do, then killed my third. For the next three minutes I had to just sit and watch my characters die. Lost like 20 sphere levels per character. I won't even do more than mention the dark aeons.

I was finally able to clear the ruins, but damn is it nerve wracking.

Oh man... Final Fantasy X...  what a great game.  I completely understand your rage on that part... but still.. I have nothing but good memories of that one.
