PSNerds Podcast #23 – Flower Sniffers

Episode 23 pic

After a week delay the nerds get back on the wagon and smell the not gay greatness of fall gaming. Borderlands is taken for a spin and loved by all despite its faults. Billy shoots his hateload of love all over Operation Flashpoint, Pete rocks out with his cock out with Brutal Legend while Chard hits L1 to change characters in Trine and visits Playstation Home…again.

Operation Flashpoint Impressions

So, Operation Flashpoint. Wow.

If you were ever a fan of the original Ghost Recon games on the xbox/PC, you should really at least rent this game.  If your idea of a military shooter consists of Halo and CoD alone, consider these things:

-no jumping

-health doesn’t regenerate. You may apply field dressing to stop the bleeding, but it’s not a fix, it just stops the blood.

-Shot in the leg and no more sprinting. Shot in the arm and you aim poorly. Take one in the head and its game over. One shot kills at any moment.

-You may spend 10-15 minutes without even seeing someone in the distance. You move very slowly in this game. Very slow.

-No hand holding. You decide how to attack the situation which really means trial and error.

The missions are neither short nor a cakewalk. In the first two missions, you are dropped into the map and told to go blow something up. Go. I admit, my first mission was spent walking in the wrong direction for 20 minutes and then I took one in the face. Once you learn what to do and how to use the map, it’s pretty simple. Couple that with a variety of orders and point to point paths for your team and you have a squad capable of doing some elaborate attacks.

Playing coop with a couple groups of people last night really added a layer of fun. All achievements and campaign progression are achievable through coop as well as single player. One can defeat the missions alone, but having a couple real humans by your side makes things much easier. The few games I played with four competent people were super fun.

This game is NOT for everyone. In fact, I would bet most people would hate it. If you enjoy some difficult gameplay and a more accurate portrayal of a war game, go pick this up.

PSNerds Podcast #22 – We Hate Mike Phillips

DONE-1

Billy rejoins the nerds and they go over Nasero’s performance as a fill in billy. Mort and Billy shoot massive amounts of love all over Uncharted 2 while Rich is left to wander if it’s gamefly or the post office that hates his will to have fun.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, Mr. Phillips of the fanboys made a forum for us! Yay! No, I mean BOOOO! We hate him!
