The new DLC adds a new weapon, the nail gun. There are three ammo types: nails, rebar, and rails. You can pin enemies to the wall with the rebar and kill enemies through walls with the rails.
I've found quite a few tiny references to DOOM and Quake in this game. Firstly, the Doom marine bobble head is in the Buggy that you get a lift in from Hagar at the very start. Also, there are a few secret items in the game called Pinkies. And when you pick them up, a sound of the pinky monster (when they spot you in that game) from DOOM is made. One last thing I found out, is an item called the "Authority Augmenter". Think back to the Quake series when you pick up a "Quad Damage", and think about those noises (that alarm-like sound) that it makes when its close to running out and when a weapon is being fired. Well, the Authority Augmenter makes those noises. Oh, and the quick use item has the Quake Symbol when it is used. :)
Seriously??????? the game is *&^%$#! i've been waiting for this frikin disaster of a game for a very long time,the graphics fail soooo bad, its over 21gb installed, and i finished it in 2 days, WTF!!!! i mean come on ID what WERE you THINKING?!?!?!
yeah their review is lame... this game is addictive, beautiful, violent and the a.i. is friggin intense... a must have in my oppinion
man Just got this game yesterday, and after reading these reviews idk waht they where talking about, I can't get enough of this game, straight up shoot em up game, i've been sorta following the story line, and i have to say, idk if there is one but it's ok and i love driving and how u can customize the vehicle.
Dont get me wrong i loved this game but i am too critical, i just love getting lost in my games (total immersion). And your so right when i wasnt looking for it, i was having a total blast..PS3 version
@LeoLex_ You must be playing the pc version if you think the texture pop-in is "game ruining." Because on the consoles it is nowhere NEAR that bad to ruin the entire game. I'm playing the Xbox version (installed) and if I'm not looking for it and just enjoying the gameplay, I hardly notice it, let alone ruin the entire experience. So you're either having a real bad experience with the pc version, which I sympathize, or just overly critical.
dont have a fav gun yet, seems you have to use them all in missions which is fun and different. No more one gun for every situation. Lovin the spider bot though, has to be my fav.
Awesome video. And the Wingstick wins with absolutely no competition from me. Those things are so much fun! One of the best items/weapons in recent memory.
PC gamers and their funny little machines ... so anti console and so juvenille. Their rage shows their age. I do believe they've surpassed PS3 and Xbox fanboys in their defiant protection of their crumbling empire. PC Gaming? Who needs it.
Agreed with Devilslayer76, Shotgun and Sniper Rifle got me through most of the game, found the authority assault rifle more useful at the end to tee out the authority mutants, well that and the BFG/minigun
I use the combat shotgun for close encounters and the sniper rifle for those hard to reach enemies, great weapons to use in the wasteland.
I have seen two hour movies this year with less laughs than this most excellent almost 8 minute show. Kudos.
Can I just be picky and say the wingstick (or triple bladed boomerang gamespot have called it) in fact only has 2 blades on it. As the 3rd part you hold. Just sayin'
All you need is anyone gun and wingsticks, just max out advanced wingsticks and your set for the game
No need so many guns. Machine guns for bandits and prime soldiers. Rockets for big boys. Snipers for sneaky long ranger. Shotgun for LAME HOPPING MUTANTS. Grenades for cowardly prime shield soldiers. Well, stock up plenty ;)
Good game but I beat it in less then 13hrs and still managed to do pretty much everything. And it would have been a bit better with more ammo types. Hopefully they will kick out a good dlc the game only seemed half done by the end.
