Wolfenstein: The New Order

So yeah I bought Wolfenstein: The New Order shortly after it came out. I'm almost finished with it already, and that makes me sad. I mean, I am loving the game so very much I wish it would last longer. I'm spoiled by having played mostly MMO titles - Guild Wars, Lord of the Rings Online - games that you can spend years in and still never see everything. So playing Fallout, Bioshock, and now this newest Wolfenstein  - these single player games are always somewhat of a let-down, because they are so short.

I love the genre so much I wish I could spend a couple of years in one of these games like I can with MMO's. Maybe I should play some of the single-player Elder Scrolls titles. I hear Skyrim can take forever to wander around in and that it has meandering story lines and random arcs.

But I really want that kind of a meandering story to include a sniper rifle & sneak knife assassinations. Fallout's been the closest to achieve my happy place. Wolfenstein's perks are much easier to manage than Fallout's though - they are more like just earning achievement points without having to make hard decisions.

My personal favorite New Order screenshots:

This lady. Salut. If I were ever to get tattoos ...

Infinity ammo? Hot Damn! Let me just drive this bad bitch outta here!

"I'm on the m-f-ing moon." - favorite quote from the game thus far.

By the way, the creepy ambient sounds are hair-raising on the moon chapter. Again, wish I could wander around a little less off-the-rails. Great story. Too short.

... and finished the game the next day. The story is going to haunt me for awhile.
