Yeah, in retrospect 5 is pretty good. I just find this new one to be incredibly stupid, the camera angles are terrible and the controlls are slow and most of the time I find myself screaming at my TV in frustration because I cant move fast enough or in the direction I need to go.

JT, what weapons upgrades and skills did you focus on?

I upgraded my shotgun mostly. Worked on weapon sway too. I think I also upgraded one of the longer range pistols, but the shotgun was my number one weapon. Toward the end of the game, I started using the bow and arrow more, so on the next play through, I'm going to focus on that.
Did you finish? If not, where are you?

About 55-60% of the way in, I think. Somewhere in
 
Pittsburgh
.

I've been primarily using the shotgun since getting it as well. Rifle is really nice too. Did you buy any of the "second holster" spots? If so, how does that work?

I never bought a holster, didn't need one.

I liked the shorty but hated the reload time.

Bow and arrow came in handy, didn't use it that much though.

The holster just makes it easier to switch quickly between different long guns and pistols. Instead of having to go through your bag, it's just a direction button on the dpad

I found the bow good for taking out clickers from a distance without getting caught. It wasn't until later in the game that I made use of it, which I kinda regret.
I've read a lot of people saying they just snuck past a lot of the infected. I killed every one I saw. What about you guys?

I've been going out of my way to kill every enemy I see. I like how you can mix in a wide variety of styles to do it. Sneak up behind them and choke or stab some guys, shoot some guys, use a pipe on some infected guy's skull, then toss a bomb or molotov into another group. Makes it fun to be able to switch things up so easily.

You have to do headshots with the bow to get one hit kills, right? I haven't used it much.

The strength of the bow depends on whether the enemy is aware of you or not. I've killed a few hunters with an arrow in the back.

I love the different styles of play too. And the melee animations are awesome. The camera shake and tightening of the frame make it all very visceral. Plus, axing a dude in the head, then using your boot to push him off the blade is pretty badass

I killed everything in my path.

I do, but they still suck. I'm at some part where I have to turn on a generator, and then get overrun by those stalker guys, and one of those bloaters. I know I'm supposed to just run and escape, but I want to kill them all.


I really wish there was some sort of coop in the game. Be it a survival mode or missions like in Uncharted 2 and 3.

oooooh, yes. Flamethrowers usually suck in games, but this one was awesome. And the flames looked awesome

That part spooked the shit out of me. I was trying to sneak around all stealthily, then I suddenly have to make all sorts of noise with the fucking generator. I killed them all without moving from my spot at the generator. I think I used a bunch of pipe bomb things.
There are a few awesome parts like that in the game when you get put into a spot you know isn't going to end well. When I fell down the elevator shaft, I just thought ".......fuck"
