Dark is now available and it probably won't be remembered by the end of the month. It is a stealth action game which puts you in the shoes of a cel shaded and poorly detailed amnesic vampire. The beginning of the adventure doesn't seem really exciting, the main character being as stiff as a broomstick and as charismatic as an oyster. The game's AI seems poor overall and the developers tried to make up for it by putting a huge number of enemies in each room, making progress a real pain from what we've seen. Powers can be upgraded to give Eric more chances of survival but we didn't play enough to see if it made things more interesting. Check out our videos to see if there's anything for you in this new vampire story.
I have a hard time when a fat bomber rolls around on skated with a parasol cocktail in his hand, whilst doing a pseudo-philosophical monologue about life. It's neither funny or cool, it's just dumb. (3 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Yeah, but MGS1 has a good balance, 2 and onward doesn't. IMO. (4 Hours ago)
@Megido: that's the beauty of metal gear :). the mix of realism and (wtf) fantasy (5 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: He sounds like he's on the toilet with a serious constipation problem :) (7 Hours ago)
Especially on MGS4, he made it sound like he had a clog of saliva in his throat. (8 Hours ago)
@Megido: I think i'm the minority on this, but the VA for Snake (forgot his name) didn't click with me. (8 Hours ago)
I ca suspend my diabelief for walking tanks and cyber ninjas. Bomb planting fatsos with rocket powered rollerblades is a step too far. (9 Hours ago)
