I am also in the suckage camp, in general.  But I keep playing them anyway.

I stop going to the threads about them because there are people here who are good, and it gets disheartening to see talk of impressive k/d ratios when I'm proud if I close in on 1:1 (and I count assists).  That's not a ding on the guys posting there.  Of course they should post that stuff.  It's more a symptom of the whole thing.

It's also not great in game to constantly be seeing my kills referred to as a Comeback.  Don't call it a Comeback, as the song goes.

I've been getting better, though.  For some reason, Titanfall clicked with me.  I was able to be in the top part of the score table, sometimes even first.  Then the most recent CoD saw similar scoring sometimes.  It depended on the match, of course, but I even posted a good result in the forums here.  I was encouraged and thought I might be getting it.

Fuck Hardline.

Seriously, like Xmann said, more than 15 seconds can be impressive.  There are moments where I wish you got points for still being alive.  And the post death camera tracking the guy who shot you, but after there's any visual information that could help you, goes on forever and feels like egregious insult.

One thing about Hardline that helped me to find out is that the starting weapons suck.  Seriously.  To the point that it's bad design because it entirely discourages new players.  And, if you're like me, the wealth of weapon choices is overwhelming and frustrating.  What if I blow all of my money on a weapon or piece of tech that doesn't work for me?  I'm back to square one.

Reading up online, I picked a weapon for the Robbers that is decent for me.  Here's the problem: you can also get it for the Cops, but only after you have enough kills with it as a Robber.  Given that I can't pick my team, how am I supposed to accomplish that?  Plus I still suck with this weapon, just a little less.  It's going to take forever.

Why am I still playing this again?

I suck in pretty much all games.  One thing you learn from the internet pretty quickly is no matter how good you think you are at something, someone else out there is a whole lot better.

So I just focus on playing games were I can have a good time.  Getting mowed down in a quarter of a second by an enemy I can't even see in an online Call of Duty match isn't much fun, so I don't play those.  I'm also pretty bad at DOTA 2, though, and I had a great time playing a support character who could push back the fog of war and stun enemies from a distance.  Same goes for single-player RPGs and strategy games.  My characters in Pillars of Eternity are surely sub-optimal compared to whatever exploits other people have figured out, but I'm having a much better time learning the systems for myself.

Did you get Lords of the Fallen on the PS4 or the PC?  I've heard the PC version looks and runs a lot better than the console versions, even on a mid-range rig.

I've also heard the PC version still has several game-breaking bugs. 

Oh, weird.  I had no idea.

It looks like there was a new patch just a few weeks ago for "general stability."  Any word if it corrected the issues?

...and *possibly* finishing up Persona Q on the 3DS.  That game is pretty great, but after almost 70 hours, I'm really interested in starting up Xenoblade Chronicles in earnest.

I'm definitely in the final labyrinth now, but unlike those that preceded it, this one seems like a fairly compacted spiral towards the final boss.  Combined with the trademark final-act Persona reveals, I'm motivated to see it through to the end.

From what I've seen in YouTube videos, this particular boss is the only one in the game that doesn't have a cheap way of dealing with it. My biggest problem is that my shield doesn't have sufficient fire resistance, and the only one I have that does requires too much agility.

I remember getting Titanfall the day after release. Some of those people must have played for 24 hours straight based upon the levels of some players.

I hate online FPS. I also can't get into RPGs. Seeing usernames like ThickMiddleAppendage pull me right out of the game.

There are a few cheap ways to beat boss 7. Youtube is your friend if you get overly frustrated. But since you played Bloodborne, I think you won't get discouraged here.

Of course, after writing my last post I realized that the 7th boss is the hardest in the game so far and is really kicking my ass, Souls-style. Tongue

I just beat the third boss today, which felt pretty good. 

I died several times (again), but not as many as the second boss.  After several deaths I went back and explored the rest of the level and found a thing I had missed that let me get what's-her-name's dagger.  With that thing I destroyed the boss pretty quickly.  Unfortunately I gave it back to her in exchange for a key to the catacombs so now I'm back to the fist weapons I stole off a statue.

Oh, for anybody that was interested in getting this on PS4, it was part of this weekend's PSN Flash Sale for $24.  Not sure how long that lasts.

I think a sequel is still coming.

I've actually been playing this game quite a bit for the last week myself, after having shelved it the same week it came out when it crashed after I killed the second boss, but before I could save. When I first played it, the game felt really challenging. Now that I've returned to it (and after playing Bloodborne), Lords of the Fallen feels almost leisurely in its difficulty. While the game requires concentration, it rarely feels truly difficult. Even so, it is enjoyable.

The game gave me a weapon before the second boss that I'm still using much, much later in the game, which is weird. I'm about to fight the 7th boss right now, and I'm still using it. Every other weapon I have has obvious drawbacks that makes it less suitable than the one I already have.

Yep, I don't even bother anymore. Friend and I used to play Unreal Tournament when EQ was down. She would destroy me. Tried to play Gears of War with coworkers once, they had all the maps memorized and I had no clue what to do. Back in the day when we used to do hot seat strategy games like Warlords III, Perfect General, and Konquered Kingdoms, I kicked ass (but always sucked at Empire Deluxe), nowadays I would rather just play single player no matter what the game. Better for the ego.

Same here, I just never bother with them at all.  The only one I was ever even remotely good at was the first Unreal Tournament, and was before my twitch reflexes went entirely to shit.

Absolutely zero interest in anything multiplayer, outside of a few select MMOs.
