Re: I hate Nathan Drake...

Jan 23, 2013

I hate myself for playing Drake because as much as I love Uncharted, I feel like such a cheap **bleep**.

 

It's part of the reason I don't play Sly. I've been playing Sly Cooper since the moment I could remember any details about my life, but it just doesn't feel right playing an OP character.

 

That, and when I try to switch from a regular character to Sly and vice versa, having/not having invisibility gets really weird.

Let's take a moment to consider my mistakes. Ah, who am I kidding? I didn't make any.

well rage makes us irrational, I find half of the patches suggested while may be borne out of genuine concerns that the character is unbalanced ending sounding like " I will not be happy until this character is made in such a way that I don't have a problem beating him" type of thinking. Good concerns, but poor solutions king of mindset.

It is pretty annoying, I keep getting a weird glitch whenever I freeze him with cole. If he does that slide thing and I freeze him...he gets frozen but its as if I still get knocked back from the sword. To be honest I have no idea why I am so drawn to cole, his level 1 glitches out so many times and players like raiden easily have the range on him since his bolts do nothing until around 5 or so of them hit. From what I've seen I wouldn't say Raiden is overpowered but he is one of the easiest characters to just pick up and use in my opinion. Between him and kratos, just pick one and mash square and you're good to go.

He's not overpowered he's just easy to get kills if you know what to do which is s just simple forward square followed by r2........or replace square by circle more recently

If you ever play me (I am a dedicated Drake, mostly because from day 1 I liked the way he plays over others) you will not see very many barrels to ak. I much prefer barrel -> down square -> dropkick if the barrel was even to be used to combo at all. Gives the same or a tiny bit less ap as run n gun thing but takes 1/3 the time to execute. I pretty much avoid the run n gun as much as I can unless I want to execute a proper burst combo, I find it holds you in place too much and at Black Belt level someone will just super you or start combing you while you take a million years to recover from the rifle bash.

 

It is really annoying though that a purple belt Drake can beat me by abusing the same combo over and over. I am in FFA 99% of the time though so it doesn't help that 80% of the players get caught by that very easily countered combo and feed him AP and therefore kills.

Another thing I'm getting sick and tired of is Evil Cole's giga punch, I'm telling you that is perhaps the most annoying thing I have come across in a while. They should just make it flatten like what they did in the patch to Raiden.
