HIGH The characters/world are great, the stealth angle on tactics feels fresh…
LOW …for the first half of the game.
WTF The extreme lack of mission variety.
HIGH Deleting it from my hard drive after finishing it
LOW Several documents with 20+ lines in tiny text
WTF How can a developer with a pedigree make something so stale?
HIGH Spending time with an MMO that feels like it's truly doing something different.
LOW Being voiceless in an otherwise fully-voiced world.
WTF All three factions start off in the same area?!
Finished The Longest Journey last night, and it was fantastic, if not a bit awkward at times. The "battles" are strange in that since I can't fail, I can stand completely still and do nothing while the monster just looks at me and waves its arms. I'm aware that Dreamfall has a combat mechanic but my friends tell me that it isn't very well done. I'm curious if something akin to Shadow of the Colossus (which I haven't played) or the new Prince of Persia would work here.
Team Fortress 2's "classless" update dropped recently, adding the new King of the Hill game mode, several new maps and some pretty significant class changes (despite being classless), the most prominent of which are the return of the Scout's double jump while using the Sandman (at the expense of 30 health) and allowing the Engineer to repair one end of a teleporter (including removing Spy sappers) by repairing the other.
