You are here: But what about a digital alternative much like iTunes? Therein lies the secret, methinks. For communities without a comic book shop, digital distribution could be the key to gaining new readers who will hopefully transition to traditional comics down the line. What we lack is a solid platform for distribution.
Sometimes you're driving a car, chasing another driver while trying to destroy his car.
Sometimes you're driving a car, running away from a driver while he's trying to destroy your car. Sometimes you run around a linear environment, shooting every dim-witted bad guy you come into contact with.
Sometimes the game inexplicably gives you the same mission, but without the benefit of a gun, which forces you to use lame stealth mechanics while you pray that there isn't a bad guy around the next corner holding a submachine gun, since there's no indicator as to where an enemy is on the map or which way he's facing.
The stealth missions in particular are abysmal--enemies will sometimes randomly turn around on you, even while you're crouched and quiet, and trying to fight an enemy with a knife while he's holding a shotgun is a good way to make you throw your PSP across a room. All of these missions, save for some of the boss fights, take one to three minutes to complete.
You'll be shocked how many times you hop into a car and drive into another car until it catches on fire, and 60 seconds later you're done. Mission objectives repeat constantly, as well, not just over the course of all five gang storylines, but also within each storyline. The number of times you do the same basic driving and shooting missions, with only a marginally different end objective, is ludicrous.
By the time you've defeated your first gang, you've essentially seen every mission type the game has to offer. Sadly, the parlor games are probably the best part of the whole game. It also doesn't help that the missions aren't the least bit fun. The shooting and driving mechanics pretty much rob the game of enjoyment right off the bat. When on foot, you're forced to hold down the left trigger to side-strafe, which is a clunky process when you're trying to avoid getting shot from several different angles.
When shooting, you can autotarget using the right trigger, but the autotargeting does a lousy job of finding the best possible target. Often you'll find yourself aiming at a car or trying to shoot an enemy that's blocked by one of your own gang members.
Though the game purports to include tactical, squad-based gameplay, there's nothing tactical about it. In missions where you have other gang members around, you can try to command them to move forward, stay put, and the like, but most times they don't quite do what you ask. Telling them to join up with you often results in one of them running backward while the others slowly amble toward you at snail-like speeds.
You're better off just making sure they take the brunt of the bullets. Driving is even worse. The car controls in the Getaway games were never all that good, but here they're made 10 times as obnoxious by the overly sensitive PSP analog stick.
It's like driving on an ice rink with greasy tires, and the amount of random traffic populating the environments makes keeping your car in good working order a real chore. Fortunately, you don't spend much time driving, since the missions are so short, but when you do drive, it's a hassle.
You'll also periodically encounter some weird glitches while driving, especially if you run into pedestrians. Pedestrians don't seem to want to die when you run them down. Instead, they get stuck in a deeply ugly-looking way that causes a rather loud audio glitch, and it stays that way until you veer in an opposing direction, at which point they run off, seemingly unharmed.

Gentleman Corpse 10 Just when Wormwood thought he could finally have that quiet drink without worrying about the world coming to an end, or a friend with a parasitic infection trying to kill him, The Brotherhood of the Calamari decide to crash the party. The protagonist asks "How had I reached this appalling position with love, only love as my guide? A: Yeah, there's even a bit where I think Adrian Veidt says at the end that he's been "Troubled by dreams lately, of swimming towards - " and then he says, "No, it doesn't matter, it's not important" and I mean it's pretty obvious that he's dreaming of swimming towards a great Black Freighter.
Yeah, there's a parallel there.
The pirate narrative was again something that emerged by accident - it emerged by accident in issue 3 - and yet originally it just grew out of a kind of incidental comment made by me and Dave. We were trying to work out the texture of the world and so we sort of said "Well, what sort of comics would they have?
If they've got superheroes in real life, they probably wouldn't be at all interested in superhero comics" and I think Dave said "What about pirate comics? Q: Yeah, they're all commenting on each other.
A: Yeah and I suddenly realized what a benefit it was having this pirate narrative embedded in the overall narrative I could refer to and use as a counterpoint.
I mean yes, it eventually does end up being the story of Adrian Veidt but there's points during the pirate narrative [where] it relates to Rorschach and his capture; it relates to the self-marooning of Dr Manhattan on Mars; it can be used as a counterpoint to all these different parts of the story and after I'd done that it's kind of manifested in a lot of work since then. From Wikipedia : According to Richard Reynold, the mariner is "forced by the urgency of his mission to shed one inhibition after another.
From the Watchmen wikia : The first part was read coinciding with the placement of a Fallout Shelter sign and the presence of a man who held a sign reading "The End is Nigh".
It indulged in the heartbreak of the young mariner and his realization that this place where dead bodies were piled beside him was not Hell, and he was alive. The second part is read to coincide with the Fallout Shelter sign that was similarly being placed on Doctor Manhattan's door during his decision to leave to Mars and its inclusion in the newspaper. The mariner recalls the disaster of the attack and thinks about his unsuspecting family, imagining their onslaught. He then buried his shipmates, and along with them hope of his family's survival.
