Halo again, Spartans

HIGH The beginning of chapter thirteen is cool, and Exuberant Witness is awesome.

LOW The suicidal conveyor belt of failed AI revives. I wouldn't trust these braindead Spartans to open a tin of peaches without adult supervision, let alone save humanity.

WTF Spartans engaging in poorly directed hand-to-hand fisticuffs.

LOW The Warden Eternal… and the Warden Eternal again… and again…

LOW Gunfright. The entire thing.

WTF Battletoads Arcade? There are a bunch of better Battletoads games out there, Rare.

Real World of the Dead

State of Decay

HIGH Watching zombies congregate around a beacon that's leading a missile right to them.

LOW Seeing my truck go flying because the physics engine decided the zombies I was plowing through were made of iron and anchored in concrete.

WTF To unlock a character, I have to make another character gravely ill and then execute them?
