There’s no doubt that this is a strong shooter. Gunplay is tight and responsive although it’s spoiled by some extremely psychic AI - creep around unseen behind cover and wherever you pop up the enemy are ready and firing.
But while it’s definitely a blast, plot and characterisation suffer because it’s all a bit of mess. There’s great Bond/Bourne style train opening then there’s… a bad man, a nuke, a massive war happening for some reason and people interviewing a soldier about it all. It doesn’t really tie in much and it’s hard not to have an occasional moment of clarity where you think, “What the fuck exactly is going on? “
“I think there should be equal numbers of men and women in top jobs because if a woman goes for a job, she should get it if she’s good enough. I think women are better politicians than men because women do things better, whereas men just rush stuff to get things over and done with.”—Someone claiming that we should give women equal rights. I am surrounded by idiots.
"As Calvetto went in for what would be a lethal attack, Peret asked if Calvetto would consider an intentional draw. The one point should be sufficient for Calvetto to be in top eight, and the extra point for Peret would give him a chance at top 16 and all that comes with it. After a little thought, Calvetto extended his hand."
I’m glad the music industry means that a lot of people are making fuck all from it. Know why? Because if it’s hard, it’s not worth it. That keeps ‘rock stars’ out of my world, and leaves me with people who love the art. Yes, they act the ‘I am’ sometimes, but that’s the show, and that’s what we ARE paying them for. The music has to be good, and you have to do it well. If it was easy to make money from it, there’d be no passion for it. It’d soil it and make the whole thing shite, instead of just the charts. It also means that those few people will do anything to make a living from it. Limited edition prints (pretty much everyone), free tickets in their album (IWABO), or just interesting designs (Ten Thousand Days by Tool).
