My main tactic, when I play, is see them then camp a door. Then run out and Boom goes my shotgun.
sad thing is you can do that ALL GAME LONG and they never learn :(

Yay for AI!


Hmm, HL2's AI was the worse thing about the game too, and those stupid striders.

One of my longest-standing pet peeves has been people who blame your "cheap" strategies for winning. What the fuck? If it works, then why the hell not? It's a war game. Only the retardenest of generals would send all their troops chaotically into some city, leaving the camp undefended. It's a good idea, it makes sense, and shut the fuck up, "IKillYou1988."

Also, shut the fuck up, Andrew from the youth center. Yes, I always play as Scorpion. Yes, i'm gonna fucking "Come 'ere!" you until it stops working. Learn to fucking block. Any decent fighting game gives you ways to counter everything thrown at you, if you're clever enough to try, instead of blaming me for your inability to press buttons right.

On topic, though... I got KOTOR and an Oblivion preorder. My mom didn't know, however, that I had already.. "borrowed" kotor and finished it like a 2$ whore, so it shall be returned and exchanged for Republic Commando. I don't expect great quality, but I'll take free games any day of the week. Except Lokiday.

Charging into a chaotically into a city and leaving the camp undefended is remarkably fun though.

Well sure. But people act like if you don't do that you're offending the Great Lords of Internet Gaming. You know. Wyatt and Norman.

Isn't the whole point of a game that it's fun, and not realistic in every way (unless of course it's a sim, but playing them competitivly doesn't really hold much allure), so charging blindly around shooting stuff is THE tactic to go for. If you kill a few whilst you're at it, even better.

I got Mario Kart for the DS and been playing it online a lot. Got Sonic Rush too, its ok but it'll probably get traded in for Kirby.

Yay for Kirby!

Although, my biggest complaint is that there isn't any multiplayer for Kirby...what a jip, eh?

Power Paintbrush/Canvas Curse is awesome enough without a multiplayer option. Failing any of the levels makes me feel like a goddamn moron though :P

Some duel Kirby action would be extremly cool though.

Depends. If the multiplayer feature was part of the WiFi LAN, then I'd just steal the other person's stylus :P

No you fool, Co-op! Co-op is where it's at!

Although it would be incredibly hard...

However stupid some of my friends may be (not all of them are braindead) I'm pretty sure they'd be able to tell a needle from a pointed bit of plastic.

Co-op Kirby would be insane. And I'd still steal the other guy's stylus anyway.

And replace it with a thick, but sharp needle.
