... Was it really that bad? I remember it being fairly good.

It's not a bad game and I enjoyed it a lot, but hearing the voice acting now does make me laugh sometimes.

Far Cry 3 has nutso good voice acting. It just might have the best ever in a video game.

It is pretty good.

And here is another gem of voice acting at its strangest.

I was gonna say Vaas and Buck are the highlights but I didn't wanna give anything away. I wasn't sure if Buck had shown up in any promo stuff since he doesn't show up until about halfway through the campaign.

The characters who aren't a part of the protag's group of friends are all well done or at least well acted. Some things are in poor taste but that's just the fault of the script more than anything. The protag and his friends though are all kinda plain and boring, unfortunately.

If you mean the swearing, I think it plays a big part in why the voice acting is so good in this game. Well, to a point. It can go overboard, but something about characters actually saying FUCK so often in a game like Far Cry 3 makes it more believable. I mean, if you were in that situation, wouldn't you be swearing your ass off? Instead of in Far Cry 1, where they practically say things like "GOLLY GEE THATS JUST DARN AWFUL" and quite literally say things like "your ass is grass" and "I'll fix your little red wagon!"

It can go too far, though. It's a fine line to tread, but one that needs treading in a game like that.

Nah, swearing don't bother me. There's a thing about one of the characters in the plot that I don't think was handled very well. There's also the fact that the natives are like, "Save us white man!!" which isn't a big deal but it's kinda weird. I wish the main character was just a native dude who was forced into doing bad shit  rather than some rich white dude.

Just rage quit BL2 a couple times because what in tarnation is wrong with the fire damage? I had full health, and the fire burn damage took me to death in literally 2 seconds. And it's always some asshole suicide psycho that, of course, is the last enemy within 80 feet of my character. What the pigeon-licking shart am I even supposed to do about that? Holy jebus, it took all of my willpower not to smash my new mouse and keyboard (because I knew it was new) because that nonsense happened to me 3 times in a row. ONE little splash of firedyingDYING2SECONDS-DEAD.

So I alt-F4'd, because to bloody hell with you and your new-u station. I don't even care about avoiding the cash penalty, I just don't want to hear your snarky comments, Hyperion.


edit: I'm starting to notice just how much I swear, so I'm taking measures to clean up my language.

Playing by yourself? When I played the game with Skanky, my brother and some stranger who joined us I was having the same problem. The game isn't much fun in co-op when the enemies become the worst fucking bullet sponges ever and you don't take much to kill. In single player I didn't have that problem much but I also didn't get very far into the game. Also the game is shitty in single player so it doesn't matter.

I actually really enjoy the game. I played up to about level 20 with the assassin, as a sniper, and that's actually a lot of fun. The whole bullet sponge thing isn't as big of an issue when you have all those critical hit bonuses.

But just now I started over as a siren. It was MUCH easier at first than it was for the assassin (badass bonuses make a difference), and a lot of fun because I switched to the opposite play style (rush in, go nuts vs. wait and snipe) but all of a sudden this fire damage bullshit started.

I forget how far I got. I think I was in the area after the desert with the little girl who I thought was super duper unfunny (like everything else in the game!!).

I really liked it until the bullet sponge stuff just became unbearable. Early on with three other people it was lots of fun playing a medic Siren. Another thing that frustrated me was how long it took to level up since I really wanted to try out more of Siren's powers.

It's always interesting how our opinions are completely opposite on another. Tiny Tina wasn't the funniest part of the game, but to say the entire thing was "super duper unfunny?"

Also, it took me about 2 hours to get to level ~10 with my siren, so I don't know what's up with that, either. Took me a lot longer with my assassin, though, because I actually took the time to look around and explore.

I played Melee Assassin. I died a lot, but it was a lot of fun bum rushing. I thought the game had a lot of hilarious moments as per usual.

I've been mixing through Far Cry 3 coop missions and general multiplayer (since after the campaign it's pretty useless to continue the game without restarting it.), Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Don't Starve, Star Wars: The Old Republic and I'm about to start up Natural Selection 2.

Got as far as Sanctuary before I stopped playing.

Right now I've been going through Darksiders and replaying Dark Souls, I'm pretty surprised how fun Darksiders actually is.
Oh and I've probably played Tekken Tag 2 every day since it came out, but that doesn't count as a game B(

TTT2! Lucky bastard. ;)

Darksiders is a drag. Everything feels like filler. The last dungeon is so fucking lazy.

Dark Souls - Got to sheath on my sorcerer and was so close to killing him. I had full health, but I didn't see the curse buildup. Uuggh. So I started a new character, a melee/faith for lightning stuff cause it looks so awesome. I'll probably go back to Sheath later tonight.
God of War - holy cow this game is a blast.
Ratchet & Clank Going Commando - this is cool.

Oh, and I beat Dishonored, which was amazing. I need to play through it again and get the low chaos ending, though.

Borderlands 2 just froze, and I had to hard reset my computer.

I started back up to find that my mouse settings were reset, all of my badass points were in tact but NONE had been allocated, I lost the last 30 minutes of progress, and I gained 10 golden keys.

What the actual fuck.

First steam sale that I didn't buy anything. I'm super busy right now, and with work, a new girlfriend, and meetings all the time, I just don't have gaming time. I might get torchlight 2 just so I have it though. I'd like to play that sometime.
