Call of Duty 4



Maybe the most enjoyable single-player FPS experience I've had since Goldeneye and Half-Life 2. Sure, it's full of scripted events -- as usually is the case w/ the CoD series -- but they're all too good. Don't pass it up.

On the downside, it is shorter than your average FPS. When it's this jam-packed and spares you the drone of repetition of other FPS'ers, you must forgive it, especially when it gives you one of the biggest jaw-dropping 'wtf' sequences in a game and leaves you satisfied by its end.

:star::star::star::star::star-half:



Fallout 3



Big fan of Fallout 2 way back when and a fan of Oblivion, so when I heard the Oblivion guys were on the Fallout license I couldn't wait! And I'm not disappointed.

What people say is true: (1) you need to plug in several hours before most start to enjoy it and (2) blowing heads off does not get old.

Downside? Character animations are horrid, as they were in Oblivion, especially when attempting to play in third-person view. Come on -- is that how people look when they hop around? And I really hoped they would retain that Fallout 2 humor and cultural reference abuse.

Still, an amazing experience. Yet to finish, so I'll spare a star-rating.



Helvetica (movie)



I'd say pretty much a must watch for designers. The film offers interesting perspectives on Helvetica's mainstream use and history. Helvetica</b> (the typeface) is pretty much everywhere. This quote from the documentary sums it up:
It's air, you know. It's just there. There's no choice. You have to breathe, so you have to use Helvetica.
I use it all the time, almost as a necessity where I work, both fortunately and unfortunately.

Hard to say if I like CoD4 or CoD5 better. The dogs in WoW are a nice touch but sometimes I do miss the copter.

I had a go with CoD4 from start to end a long while ago, and many of your earlier comments already summarise my views of the entire game. The presentation of the entire storyline in particular does a good job immersing you in key plot points. Quality directing, I must say.

Totally agree with your CoD4 rating. I was a Clancy man before, but the game was really awesome. You actually got introduced (in a way) to the characters, the story flowed well and game play is good.. but the multi-player... I could be on that forever!

Have you given Call of Duty: World at War a go? It's brilliant, imo, just as good as MW.

Fallout3 is absolutely brilliant. Finished it a while ago and I've replayed it 3 times now in various karma gradings. :D

I have not given it a go yet, but from all the positive things I've been hearing I might give it a try eventually.

Congrats on the replaying on the FO3. I might go back as a bad guy next time around seeing as I've always played the goodie-two-shoes. It just feels so wrong otherwise. Even in games like GTA I'd feel bad hitting innocent people. Not so much when I steal their cars though. I suppose I assume their insurance will cover it?

HELLS YEAH!
fallout 3 rapes. finished it the other night.
as youve not finished it let me say this: do as many side quests as you can, look em up on the internet.
i say this because after the last mission you cant go around exploring so anything youve not done goes to waste.
other than that, such a good game (except for the animations sometimes haha)

Ah, yes -- so I've been hearing to make a save point before the last mission so you can continue doing the side-quests, etc. That's sort of a bummer at the end of any game. Maybe it falls into the context of the FO3 ending -- no idea! -- but still a bummer.

CoD4 has an excellent single player, but the multiplayer is downright perfect. I've spent days (literally) playing it.

The amount of hrs I clocked into CoD2 was pretty ridiculous. I'm too afraid to even touch CoD4 multi for fear I won't be able to play anything else for months! Heard nothing but good things about it. People are still playing like crazy.

CoD4 is definitely fantastic.
My buddy $bionikdesign bought CoD:World at War (the newest one). It's okay, but it's severely lacking in what CoD4 brought to the table (probably because a different studio made this one).

No matter. Infinity Ward is working on CoD4-2. Should be a good game, considering their track record.

I'm at the point where I'm basically done w/ WW2 related games, at least for a while. Not that I don't enjoy the setting but it gets pretty tiring reliving the same 'story' experience (even when they're from different perspectives). W/ that said, might still check it out for checking outs sake if it goes on sale for I heard many a good things.

Frankly, CoD series seems over-saturated w/ yearly releases. But I'm excited to see what they come up w/ for CoD4-2.

Well, CoD4 brought creativity to the table and WaW brought along that same creativity. I dunno what's wrong with the game, I really like it, to be honest. ;p

Like CoD4 except it's got a very good story and it keeps you glued to the tube.
