I dunno. Bit bored. It is raining here, thunderstorms and the power goes out WAY too easily in this house. I was playing on my PS3 as the power went out. I mean yeesh. I don't play my PS3 and it's calm and quiet. The moment I turn on my PS3 to play, thunder starts to rumble. It's like I am being told "Don't you dare play your PS3".
Yeah, my TV and PS3 and of course PC are in a surge protector. Still, I feel that can't be good for the PS3 and such to shut off suddenly in the middle of play like that. So I guess no more PS3 for me today. Tonight? I dunno. The blasted weather site is all inaccurate to say Cloudy, only to change it to T-Storm a few minutes later. On the whole, hourly forecast. So yeah... I dunno.
I got Borderlands 2 on PS3, as I said in past journals. Been playing that. But as of yesterday, nope. Because of the rain. Today I tried and well, what I just said there just happened. But man... do I suck in there. The aiming is TERRIBLE.
Now for a small rant...
Borderlands 2 on consoles, at least on PS3, the aiming is BAD. It feels as if all console games that having aiming, do aiming ALL WRONG! It's like they settle for good enough and leave it alone. No more thought or effort into it. It feels like there is no prescaled smooth aim going on. It seems to skip around too much. Too much jerking. When I play Doom 1 or 2 on my PC, there is this option that says "pre-scale mouse movement" and I turn that on, it makes it move smoothly. I turn it off and it is too jerky. So I believe that is what is going on in Borderlands 2 on consoles.
Now some of you may think, it is the PS3 controller. That may be part of it... but not all of it. I have played Saints Row 2 and 3 on my PS3 and the aiming is PERFECT. I mean it is very smooth and accurate. Probably the best implemented aiming system on a console game. I was able to headshot and all that so easily. But every other game I have tried on consoles... Uncharted, Resistance, Killzone, Bioshock, Dead Space, inFamous, GTA IV... pretty much all of them do it WRONG. Now that I think about it, I think they all lack that pre-scaled movement or something.
So yeah... I dunno. I have turned off Aim-Assist in Borderlands 2. That is another thing they do wrong. It is very noticable. In other games, I know they have it, but you can't really tell. I think it slows down once on a target and sticks a bit. But Borderlands 2, just like in the first game, it is like a magnet and sticks too much, and if another target gets in the way, it will move off your aim. Plus it keeps trying to aim at their chest, making headshots harder to pull off. I kept turning it on and off and I dunno. I am so terrible at aiming, mostly when someone is way up close. Just... bad. Mostly that too much jerking around or something... bah.
So anyway I dunno. For those who have the game on console, do you turn off Aim Assist? As well as your thoughts about anything else I have said here.
