We look at Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus as an antidote for the political upheaval taking place in 2017.
lol. Oh please.
Best FPS of 2017 that's for sure. No tacked on multiplayer bullshit. A proper full excellent single player awesome game. But the politics side Meh couldn't give a fuck.
It reminds me of Doom, a properly modernized version of old school shooters with a coat of new paint. I've been really enjoying the game so far.
Nah, Prey was way better. This game was too long with too many cutscenes featuring too many ridiculous scenarios and unlikeable characters all while making the player look like a cry baby 90% of the game. I dunno, maybe I'm just bitter, but I think The New Order was wayyy better and found this game to be quite lame and forgettable. Even without comparing it to the first I find it to be mediocre over all.
I find the game to be quite boring in play and keep hoping it gets better, but as yet....
I'm enjoying it but I always loose track of my health, would have liked more sound or visual ques on that one but otherwise I think it's good.
It picks up here and there but kept falling for me. Over all don't feel bad, myself along with a lot of my friends found it to be very a very ho-hum game.
jfc, no it's not. No matter what CNN says, Trump isn't Hitler and there's no Nazi threat looming in America. The "political upheaval" is just the media inventing a crisis because they can't handle the fact that Queen Hillary lost the election.
Not only that, it's great for ratings. Fear mongering means more money for news networks.
That too. And they'll be even more desperate now that they're losing all their money names to sexual harassment claims.
Only people who think we're living in Nazi Germany are liberals that didn't vote for trump and are just pissed they didn't get their way, after all the polls and people were saying Hilary would win, they've never been told "No" and "You lost", so now they're throwing tantrums. We're living in a time where feelings mean more than facts. It's a shitty time because of that, not Trump.
Let's not forget Hillary had a 99% chance of winning the morning of the election
Yes. The spin that was put on this game was pathetic. The games been known for a long time now without stirring controversy, barring some fringe groups im sure. I mean the first two reboot games came and went without controversy. But then they advertized the game with anti-trump hashtags like #notmyamerica and others, and naturally people got mad. THEN the gaming media turned around and made it "trump supporters angry that Wolfenstein is about killing nazis!" Then of course in the game you cant go 5 minutes without hearing some tumblr dialogue about "why do they always say 'you got balls'? why is it a male thing". I made it a few hours in and had to stop. Most disappointing sequel this year for me.
Im gonna step in and just point out HOW THE F did you come to these conclusions LOL? This game was amazing your loss. I never came across any of said dialogue.
I like you
The snow melts damn fast with these flakes when wholesome Nazi's are portrayed in such a negative light. Why did those millions have to commit 'suicide' in such a way and tarnish such reputable people.
You sound like a brown shirt claiming 'nothing to see here..' as he gets his paint ready to dab shop windows. The country's been infiltrated by the far-right. It's already too late. Your response kinda explains itself. I'm far from liberal and I'd put myself on the right, but if you think Trump is normal you damn sure don't love your country because it's being sold out from under your feet with the cover of nationalism.
Lol paranoid much there buddy? If anything the left still runs things, but either way the citizens don't anymore
Of course he's not Hitler. He's just a bigot jackass who couldn't care less about the people. And that fact has zero to do with Clinton.
Explain how he is a bigot oh wise one.
Terrible level design, boring gameplay, no multiplayer like past games. Yaaaaaaaasssss
no multiplayer is a huge yes not every game needs throw in multiplayer bethesda needs to stay focused as a publisher on single player games
Yes to bethesda but this is id who made Return to Castle Wolfenstein which had some top grade multiplayer, I'd love to see what they can make given the right resources.
Couldn't reply directly to Concert but no, this isn't done by id, this as well as The New Order and The Old Blood was developed by Machinegames.
The New order didn't have MP and it was really good.
True, but this one is just not that good. bummer
hyper why is it not as good? from what i understand it's an improvement over the first game and story is said to be good
Why do we have to politicize everything? Can't a game just be a story and gameplay? Can't it just be nazi killing without injecting your dumb politics into it?
I just finished the game and it's fantastic... but it IS infused throughout with implicit commentary on the current political state of america... and of course plenty of nazi killing.
Why are the "x is the thing we need in 2017" articles always relating to this new-wave millenial politics thing that everyone's into now? I hate all of it - - on both sides now I can't stand it.
nice game. only letdown is that it is just more of exactly the same. have my fun with it, but the bad taste of repetition stays back.
Great game that is reflective of the times.
I love it,.. but it is hard as all hell,.. especially if you are used of doom,.. melee animations live you vulnerable and hurts the pace,.. Auto pickups would help also,.. Otherwise it is one of the best shooters I've played in years,.. Story/characters/sound is all top notch,.. On easier difficulties it is probably one of the most fun games in years,.. but on harder ,.. there are problems with some gameplay systems
Agree that auto-pickup and invulnerability during melee animations would really help the flow.
Just received by collectors edition yesterday. It is MASSIVE box. Super excited to play.
What are you talking about? I don't see nazis doing a "political upheaval". These types of articles/comments are satire or something....right?
Nope. Gaming and politics.. yuck.
Horrible article. Propaganda hmmm I love having it thrown in my face day after day no matter where I go.
Wolfenstein 2 was fun to play but the addition of the toxic uber-bitch Grace Walker absolutly ruined what could have been a GOTY contender. Just an all around poor character
Ironically the people calling the current admin "fascist" slept through the previous corporatist-in-chief Obama using gov't might to pick the winners and losers of industry, that progressives and the majority of the Democratic party push socialism (to those that don't know, the Nazis a SOCIALIST brand), demand nationalization (Hello health care and "Net Neutrality"), and for an authoritarian/totalitarian centralization of government power...there's also that consolidation into a world gov't, eugenics, and a whole slew of other commonalities we can generically list later
https://www.snopes.com/2017... Just a reminder that sometimes people lie about who they are and what they stand for in order to gain power. Just because "socialist" is in the party name doesn't mean that's really what they stand for.
Maybe this game would have been more relevant a couple few years ago when the Obama administration unleashed ACTUAL NEO-NAZIS to help overthrow Ukraine's government
Instead of crying about politics in games and gaming media, let the "free market" decide. Wolfenstein is not your IP. Go make an apolitical shooter in which nobody gets their bootlicker feelings hurt, surely it will sell millions of copies.
Liberal insanity 2017. Keep your politics to yourself!
I see n4g has a lot of Alex Jones viewers
lolwut I mean the game is awesome but not for the reasons the article states.
lets see how much you love trump when his boy aijit pai will make your internet dissapear on dec 14th
Wolfenstein 2 not having MP and being SP focused doesn't save it from still being pretty boring and mediocre. Being a big fan of the last two in the series (TNO is one of my all time fav's) I found TNC to be a disappointment in nearly every aspect. Nah, it's a good example that SP games still sell well...but it's a poor example of a good SP game.
