Let's discuss plot shields and why they're so fucking retarded.

I fucking hated the bulletproof lighter in Far Cry 3. Jesus fuck, I mean Vaas is crazy mad about you and your mysterious ways of surviving and yet he only shoots you once in the chest and even after not seeing any blood coming out he leaves you there and take off, then a shit load of time after that you get piled up under a mountain of bodies, and yet your character spent all that time sleeping because he can't be knocked out for that long, by some fucking Rakyat, I mean their hero is "dead" yet they don't check your vitals or see where you got shot, even though there is no blood. Fuck Ubisoft for that, it kinda ruined the game and even Vaas, it would have fitted the character more to shoot you several fucking times in the head. /rant

Let's hear out some retarded as fuck plotshields

vaas' death was complete shit and the lighter was a load of crap as well. plus wouldn't the lighter fluid which i think is butane is flammable and would have exploded on contact with the bullet

I think it's more important how Vaas just shot Jason once and even when he didn't bleed Vaas just takes off, instead of taking you to his base and impale you or some shit, I mean he was a loco motherfucker.

Out of all the laughably stupid shit that went down in Far Cry 3, it was the lighter stopping a bullet that ruined the game for you? For me, the game was ruined when Jason's brother got shot and he didn't collapse into a pile of tears and suck. Then it was ruined again when he took a bunch of strange drugs and didn't die. Then it was ruined again when he shot a guy and didn't puke and cry like a wussy tourist, hell, it was ruined when he was able to find the trigger and hit a guy within five minutes.
Jason knowing how to stab a man to death silently so fast it would make Ezio shed a single manly tear? Ruined.
Jason's friends all being huge asshats yet the devs expected the player to care for them? Ruined.
Vass dying in a fucking dream sequence!? R. U. I. N. E. D.

Far Cry 3 really should have just stuck with being a fun as hell game instead of trying to be deep and edgy, because it did a shit job of that.

I agree, I think the main problem was that they tried to have the Jason as the protagonist and not the badass mofocker that was his older brother, also they tried to dodge all the shit that was going to be thrown at them for doing that by using the "magic Assassin's Creed/Delta Force training" tattoo

The game was fantastic, the story was terrible. The devs tried too hard to be edgy and philosophical and ended up with a bunch of goofy plot elements sandwiched between stellar gameplay.

Gotta agree.

In Fallout 3 you can't help the enclave.

And that's why I think Fallout New Vegas is somewhat better in that aspect since you can join pretty much everyone in the last mission

a game got ruined because of one plot "hole"?
someone is hard to impress
User avatar #316988 to #316984 - mikepro (01/28/2013) [-]
Kinda ruined the game, it didn't completely ruin it because gameplay is still fun as fuck and Vaas remains to be a crazy motherfucker. But it was so cliché. Wait. Holy fucking shit, I think I got it. I feel pretty stupid. I think it might be one of those moments where they satirized action movies/games.

lol u wot
i don't think you understand satire
User avatar #316995 to #316992 - mikepro (01/28/2013) [-]
I might have used the wrong term, I'm retarded like that.
User avatar #316996 to #316995 - herblegerble (01/28/2013) [-]
it's okay, i forgive you
User avatar #316998 to #316996 - mikepro (01/28/2013) [-]
Isn't satire when you use irony or sarcasm to ridicule something?
User avatar #316999 to #316998 - herblegerble (01/28/2013) [-]
Yes, but I don't think there was anything about that lighter that was satirical...
User avatar #317000 to #316999 - mikepro (01/28/2013) [-]
They were using it to ridicule movies where the hero always survives a shot by having a book or a lighter or a cigarette box (I don't know how the fuck those are called) just like they did it in the last mission were all buildings were exploding and the protagonist's brother learned how to fly a chopper out of the blue
User avatar #317001 to #317000 - herblegerble (01/28/2013) [-]
He was a pilot, so whilst it didn't really make much sense, there was a little bit of logic there. I get where you're coming from, but I always thought that satire was really obvious in Far Cry 3. Maybe you're right and it really was intended to be subtle.
User avatar #317002 to #317001 - mikepro (01/28/2013) [-]
Yeah that's what I thought since the brother is already a pilot he might know his shit and as it was an airport then maybe there were boxes of fuel and explosives but it was still a bit satirical and over the top
