It has been a while since I posted so yeah I finally made it back here. I won't bore you with the details of my absence, but instead get rigth to the meat of this blog..or should i say nutmeats. :)
I am normally not a huge FPS gamer, but having seen an advertisment here for the new "Nutshot" on Combat Arms, I decided to give it a whirl. First off if you don't like FPS PVP games, don't bother with this one. It is 100% FPS PVP. You join scenerios created by others or create one yourself and wait for others to join it. This could take some time depending on the time of day. I found it hard to find opponents before 4pm est, so I am guessing this is mostly a US played game.
The combat itself is pretty straight forward. There are a variety of weapons available for gps and microtransaction purchases. The game is free to play but with a catch, most of the best weapons I have found so far are through microtransactions and are only playable for a limited time. You can get by on the free weapons but I would not advise getting into any serious bigtime pvp fights with them
Nut Shot is the newest feature of the game. And sorry boys but it is exactly what it shoulds like...you can kill a man with a well placed groin shot. Women do not suffer this same indignity so I expect there were be alot more female avatars around. I am actualy expecting that before long, there will be a protective cup available on microtransactions that will reduce the chance of losing the family jewels. The concept itself is rather funny, if you get nut shotted, you get a nice squirrel with a cracked nut on your screen..if you delievered the bloodline ending shot, you get an oversized "nutshot!" icon announcing your "acheivement". I will admit that I found myself alot more accurate with the nutshots when I was playing while ticked off at my husband....and yes I will admit..it felt good!
All in all, I did enjoy all the recent improvements but still think its overly microtransaction heavy.
On a scale of 1-10, I would give it a solid 7
