I've arrived at the 5th area in Strange Journey. It's... weird. er. Looks pretty though.
Bar the present day part. Also mentioned in the fourth-wall breaking was that they've no intent to make any games set in a time period that involves vehicles, (complex) machinery, etc... unless there's retarded demand for it or somethin'.
Finally got the Champion Pack Costume after savin' a week's worth of credits. The cost of said costumes bein' increased by a third does not amuse me. On the topic of my disappointment in the Champion Costumes, most'a them don't look very good. Quite a few are just what appear to be dumbed down (and color swapped) Prestige Outfits, despite costin' five times said outfits.
Also, I keep runnin' into noobs who play around Tripwires and bait people with taunting. I just don't understand the mindset behind it. N00bs who fall for taunt bait would blindly run int' the Tripwire regardless, and the taunting does little more than alert experienced players like myself that there's a Tripwire. But the worst part is that no one understands how t' place a Tripwire properly these days...
Oh, and I need t' remember that at any time I can pay a few credits to swap Ability Sets at any time. Grab my one set with Animus Shield, wait for 'em to taunt, and humiliate the idiot. Though this is assumin' they place a Tripwire properly and I can't just walk past it. Which never happens lol.
If you guys missed my KF rants here's a new one for ya, on the server I help maintain (not really...it just sounds fancier when I say it that way.) I finally perked Commando to level 10 which required 3 Million damage from 10.5M. Now I need a whopping 5.5M just to level up to 11. Life sucks but the grind continues and it always will. If I get a good session with 6-7 players on one day I can score as much as 1M in a sitting no problem.
Spoiler Alert!Spoiler Alert!
Makin' progress in character customization after an age of not spendin' saved-up credits feels good. Think I'll nab the Cutthroat's Prestige Outfit next. After him, I really don't know who t' spend credits on next. Even the personas I don't particularly like have some nice customization options... most notably the Puppeteer, one'a my least favorite multiplayer personas.
Also, I finally figured out why I keep gettin' killed in a Morphed crowd by n00bs that blindly run into said crowd: the Vision loss streak. One'a the first you unlock, tells ya exactly where your targets are (even through walls) and highlights them in blue when they're in line of sight. In other words, it's a sign that I'm playin' well by activating their loss streaks so often lol. If it weren't for said loss streak, I'd have plenty of no-death Manhunt sessions...
