XIII, Pistol

-Here is a game that is not talked about enough. XIII (as in 13) was a Ubisoft shooter based on a Blegian comic book series. It had a comic book look, with it’s cell shaded visuals. Which at the time was still a bit of novelty. 

The game doesn’t have a ton of great reloads, but I do like this pistol reload. Simpe but effective. He actually loads in a magazine and pulls the slide back. It just looks nice. (Also play XIII, it’s cool.)

Confession:  I really hope that Bioware makes mages/magic more interesting in the next game, spells have been getting progressively more dull with each release. Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Pillars of Eternity, Divinity Original Sin, Dragon’s Dogma etc have a far more exciting and diverse spell selection. I really miss the DAO mages which felt like RPG characters rather than FPS guns. ( And I really hope they bring back healers for the next game, Cleric/Priests have been a staple of RPGs back since the original D&D 40 years ago and the previous two Dragon Age games…the folly of balancing magic around multiplayer =\ )

Bullet leaving barrel at 1 million frames per second.

The velocity with which the bullet exits is known as muzzle velocity. It is around 1000 m/s on average. But higher muzzle velocity is also acheivable.

I’ve got the next century of Call of Duty’s lined up. You heard it here first.

M249 SAW, Half-Life: Opposing Forces

-My favorite big machine gun reloads are the ones where they take some time. The reloading animations where you can go make a sandwhich or play a little Pokemon GO while the weapon finishes reloading. 

This slow reloading speed along with a heavy feel give these bigger guns a real sense of power that other weapons in games don’t achieve. In Opposing Forces, one of my favorite expansions ever made, the M249 feels beefy and powerful. Killing aliens has never been so much fun. Or as loud.
