SO by taking aim at said cliches it became a cliche itself? That's pretty ironic no? The Puncture technology sounds cool, we were discussing why nothing like that hasn't been done yet. You shoot a wall with a rocket, all you see is a black smudge decal. This is a new gen, we can pull these things off now. Unlimited ammo seems like it'll be too easy though. By stripping away the need for ammunition so as to decrease some tension, they also decreased player strategy. Something similar has been seen with the Unified Ammo system of Deus Ex: Invisible War which I HATED because of that.
