I'm surprised Ratchet & Clank wasn't on the list. Late Saint's Row games, with more imaginative weapons like the Shark gun and the armchair with guns would fit on a part two list as well

NomadsReviews1243d ago

I'm not familiar with Ratchet and Clank (not my sort of game) but I'll add it to the list for part two along with Saint's Row. Thanks for the suggestions :-)

look up resistance fall of man from insomniac as well. there were some interesting weapons for that too

P_Bomb1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

@phoenix
Resistance series 100%. Especially the secondary fires. Auger shields, Bullseye tags, Magnum detonator, Rossmore incindiary, then throw a Hedgehog for good measure. By the time I got to R3 they were onto Atomizers and Mutators. Armory speaks for itself.

Does the unicorn weapon from Red Faction: Armageddon counts?

gleepot1243d ago

Cerebral Bore from Turok 2. Farsight from Perfect Dark.

Thank you to everyone for your excellent suggestions. They have all been added to the list for part two which should be published by the end of the month :-)

Well, 4-Infinite dropped the ball massively so don't worry.

Sgt_Slaughter10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Not really. 4, 5, MCC, and Infinite are only remembered for their shortcomings and failures when the franchise was purely known for being a system seller and an all-time great. There's a reason 1, 2, 3, and Reach are looked back on fondly, and it's not because of nostalgia.

FinalFantasyFanatic10d ago

I don't know of anyone that speaks fondly of the later Halo games, I would like to play 5, but I know it's not good, and I'm just waiting on Infinite to hit my strike price. I played MCC a lot later after it came out, so must of those bugs/issues were gone by the time I played it.

To say it dropped the massively is just not true. Many in the community hold H5 as the best mp mechanics in the entire series and say its what 4 should've been. Its campaign was trash but the MP is Fantastic and many faces of the community still play today and it only made 500mill in the matter of months but sure it dropped the ball massively. 4 was hated due to all the changes at once. And CoD like feature and rightful get hate but it's campaign story was liked by a majority of ppl. 343 hasn't nailed ot 100% but they get 1 thing perfect but F up in other places. Infinite had a good campaign and design but the story was a mess. The MP improves upon what Halo 3 was and is what many ppl wanted to go back to but it lacked content severely. So massively aint the word. Dropping the ball massively is when it's pure trash and unplay/unenjoyable. Most ppl blind by nostalgia so soon as 1 thing aint the same its hated cause Halo set the bar so high
FYI reach was not that good.

Dead IP, time to invent something new.

Maybe they can have ID or one of the COD studios help 343 with this series.

Halo-Pop like Gears Pop. Halo bowling. Halo Cooking Mama. There’s a reason why you won’t hear about them
