I agree with you there, every play style has a weapon suited for it, you just have to unlock it to get it lol.

F1 2011 because nearly every day I have to reset my profile due to the save game bug, and I have issues every day logging on to games for windows live because, quite simply, it is awful. It's a shame, because without those issues, I think the game is great.

It just sucks I had to suffer so many bad rounds to get my hands back on that beast again.
my kdr is 1.4 with the stock guns. battlefield games dont have superior weapons, each have strengths and weaknesses. the earlier you accept it, the earlier you can focus on improving how you play

the physics in angry birds pisses me off

Yup, because the MG42 or whatever it was in BC2 for the Medic wasn't completely overpowered. I mean, it isn't like people ONLY used that every game you went into, right? Oh... wait..

I gotta call BS on this one. The guns you unlock are more powerful, thus less shots...

I don't know, but it must have been some NES game. When we were kids I remember my brother and I whipping our controllers at the ground when we'd die at the same part for the 20th time in row, and have to replay the whole level again. Gaming isn't quite like that anymore, the challenge isn't the same.

I'd have to go with Friday the 13th on NES as most frustrating ever. Never did beat that game. I believe every time you died you started the entire game from the beginning, and it was like a four hour process getting back to the end boss again.

Hell no, they don't make it like that because it would be unbalanced and unfair if you don't have unlocks, and people like you would rightly complain, but it isn't. There's not only damage but recoil, rate of fire, deviation, etc. The m249 has some gnarly muzzle flash compared to the stock gun as well. Chat it up with demize99 on twitter if you want, he's the one that designed them and often good at responding.

And hunt the mg3 wasn't permantently op. after rebalancing it stood out so had to be balanced again.

if you want proof, the list of unlocks in bad company 2 and their time to kill for assault was

aek .075s
xm8 .08s
f2000 .0706s
aug .0857s
an94 .1s
m416 .0857s
m16a2 .075s

your first gun takes less time than your second! your 4th unlock takes the longest to kill! your last unlock takes as long to kill as your stock gun! now learn how to play better and quit blaming the guns

I forgot all about Prototype. I had a long and complicated two year relationship with that game. Love to hate, hate to love again....

I ve been googling the new prototype 2 and I m kinda looking forward to it. I ve also been stockpiling some chamomile tea.

Also going on record to say that finale boss was a troll reviling the greatest on this board.

I got stuck early into Alan wake. It's the part at night in the forest where you're running around the logging camp and right after that, it seems like you have to run through the woods or something as you progress to the gas station.

The woods are full of the bad guys and I have zero bullets and hardly any flashlight batteries and pretty much die right when I walk out of the overhead light by the generator.

F- that.

I love the dirt series. Dirt 3 is a fun, deep and beautiful racer. It crashes as much as an old blind lady though. Its been working recently (almost done with season 2) but there was a time when it would always crash when loading a new map.

I brought a dlc for it as well.

I found only one part of alan wake to be really frustrating. Any part involving a the "darkness" using objects against you!

(ps i lied. the final stretch in the woods is a real bitch.)
