Anyone play this game anymore?
You probably donít remember me Blessed_Tempest, Injured_Gnome, Megman00, and other variations. I used to play with Known_Gnome and the RiP clan. In fact RiP_Massacre lived 3 minutes from my house. People used to call me the "father of the EMP combo", but a lot of people take credit for it so I donít know exactly who started it. I havenít played UC2 in ages, probably 5-6 years. After leaving my original Xbox at a buddy's house and getting the red ring on my 360 I was forced to move on. I still have 2 copies of the game at my apartment, reminding me of the good ole days. All my 1 month free accounts were GODLIKE ranked and I probably played with most of you. I wanted to tell the community "thanks for the good times" and I wish this game would continue into the current platforms. It was very competitive, easy to pick up but difficult to master.
Switching from 1st to 3rd person, having mortal combat style "finishers" in a shooter, wall jumps, and selecting ability-specific characters were all very unique features to this game. Everyone knows there's nothing scarier than floating 500 feet up in the air only to see a Double-Damage Malcolm firing fully charged homing Rip-Jacks at you. In competitive play, everyone picked different characters (meaning there wasn't 1 character that ruled the comp scene) and everyone picked different energy weapons. Besides everyone using rockets as their explosive weapon this game was extremely balanced.
In this regard I still hold UC2 as one of the best games of all time.
P.S. Anyone remember Xboxgod or something like that? He used to play as Necro Selkat, host reject, and never use a ranged weapon. I didn't like that guy.
