I'm just sad because it seemed so goddamn easy to make the combat more interesting with some more vigor using enemy types.

And maybe for them to actually keep their word on some of the promises they made years ago.

Remember when they said that Songbird would attack you at complete random? Now he is never a threat to you at all and only shows up in 3 or 4 cutscenes. You don't even get to fight him but you get to fight Madame Tanky McHealthbar and her Spook Troop three times in succession.

Speaking of which, that's another fight that was somehow a lot more difficult when I was rushing through on easy than it was on medium.

I think not allowing you to fight Songbird was an appropriate decision. It's not supposed to be just another boss for you to take down, an enemy to get rid of. As a construct, it lies beyond your reach and your power to do anything about it. In RPG terms, having to fight it, would be to "stat" it. It'd be like trying to fight and win against Cthulhu, even though he could crush you with a mere thought.

I was playing on hard and had to resort to beating the instaressurect ghosts in a corner for five minutes.

It kinda sounded like this:

NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD NOT OF MY WOMB NOT OF MY WOMB NO REST UNTIL SHE'S DEAD

I'm just imagining it would be like Dragons showing up when you're in a town in Skyrim.

That is to say, annoying as fuck.

Oh how radiant, now a bunch of quest-giving npcs are dead, what an age we live in.

There's that.

And then there's having a grand finale that isn't "Press F to Birdstrike the Angry Negroes".


I was thinking about it, and how about they never give me control over Songbird and Booker ends up hijacking a Vox Zeppelin, fight his way to the top while using it's weapons to get songbird to fuck off while fighting him and the Vox on some open platforms.

And when you get to the controls you FUCKING RAM THE THING IN THAT FEATHERFUCKS FACE AND INTO THE SIPHON as Booker jumps out expecting to fall to his death but the destruction of the Siphon gives Elizabeth her powers and she saves you at the last minute. Then it turns out that getting rammed in the face with a FUCKING Zeppelin into an explosive towering statue didn't kill Songbird and he charges at you, AND THEN the ending continues exactly as it did in the game already.

Spoiler:
I'm not really mad about it, it's more that it was kind of weird to be fighting them if I'm on my way to break into Comstock House, the same place that THEY are dying attempting to raid, and then try to kill me after I KILL COMSTOCK and just want to leave.

Sure, Liz killed Daisy, and that was just a massive fuckup but compared to everything else we did actually trying to help them I'd wish they'd try and be less retarded. For shits sake nobody from the Vox was even near Daisy when she got killed, how did they even know? Unless I'm remembering that scene wrong and she announced something over an intercom befoehand

Which reminds me, Irrational also said way back when that you'd get to choose which side of the war you got to support before they changed the story.

Spoiler:
Her motivation for wanting to kill you as an "imposter" and have you remain a martyr to the cause seemed forced, but aside from that, eh. They wanted Elizabeth dead anyway to ensure Comstock's prophecy is completely fucked over so protecting her could've been enough motivation for fighting them the rest of the time.

When you're on Comstock's airship they don't know he's dead and they talk to him over the speakers and outright say that he wanted to put his daughter on a throne but they'll put her in a grave

As for stuff Irrational promised, I wasn't following the game too closely, just watched the demonstration and CG trailer.

Well I get what you mean, the game was pushing the "Power Corrupts" theme a lot throughout the game. They just could have handled it a bit better in my opinion to make it more believable.
