Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

The more and more I read about your gaming experiences for this game, the less I want to play it. Respawning cities/bases/outpost is BS!

And count me in to preferring JC2 where you destroyed bases and they stayed destroyed. In fact the bases in this game. Aren't even really highlighted on the map. More emphasis is put on the shitty stunts which feel like a chore. The game still needs a lot of work in these areas. Whereas in JC2 I wanted to complete everything, here I don't feel that way.

Oh, and I noticed that using the wings with the jet booster you can fire rockets. That's kind of cool.

The same bullshit that Ubisoft pulled in FarCry 2 which killed my interest to continue playing.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

So it seems like JC2 is the one to get if this franchise looks interesting?

This is what I got when I searched:

Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search : just, cause
In cases like this, I try searching for character names or similar terms.

Fuck this noise - I'm done. On amazon marketplace it goes."

Code:
dvdtalk "just cause 2"

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

So if Iím liking 2, does it make sense to just skip 3 and get 4 if I want more or similar to 2?

I canít imagine how bad it mustíve originally looked. Picked this up with a christmas giftcard today and downloaded the patch. Itís easily the worst looking game I recall from the current gen. Hell, I feel like most of the 360 games I played looked better. Iím playing with a projector on a 10í screen and it feels like as big of a step back as watching a dvd on that setup. Iíll put a couple hours in to see if itís fun enough to tune out the graphics, but itís crazy to me just how bad such a major title looks.

Hey, read the rest of my posts in that thread! It tells a story in regards to my experience with the game, from that initial one, to coming around soon after - actually, after I figured out that parachute bit (I was over-complicating it), I was even more frustrated by the lack of ammo - which I got over as soon as I leveled up and figured out to use the mounted guns.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

Not sure if this was addressed, but can you have more than 1 game for the same username? I bought the deluxe version for myself but I let my son play it first and he installed the bonus codes under his name. I want to play from the beginning but I want to use the bonus things. So can I log in with his username and start a new game and his current game will be saved too?

I do have to say that, for JC3, it was worth it alone for David Tennant's increasingly unhinged performance as the propaganda announcer.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

Anyone have any thoughts on play with this? I’m liking 2, but seems like I’m playing outdated material and wonder if a more refined experience lies in the latest? What are major gripes?

Really? I know people give you a hard time for not searching for anything (myself included) in this forum but you canít even search this tread?

James has been detailing his gaming experience in detail ever since he got his preorder plus heís comparing it with his experience of the second and third game. If you are so curious about it, buy it and play it and for once, let us know how you find it.

Re: JUST CAUSE 4: Xbox One / PS4

I mean I see your point, but would like other non-professional opinions. james’ review kinda all over the place. Pre patch post patch. Just nice to hear others thoughts. I like 2, but it does feel last gen. I like this gen and like games comparable to that. If this is not a significant upgrade from 2, I’ll just continue with that. But these just give me the 3D Bionic Commando (of course bigger and badder) I always wanted as the original NES is one of favs of all-time...

JC4 definitely feels and looks last gen.

JC3 looks this gen, but was kinda boring.

would you prefer James review it as pre-patch only? Or post-patch only? Wtf?

I'm shocked JC2 feels last gen... oh wait, it is.
