  1. I still can’t believe they are making everyone download this huge patch regardless of whether they plan to get the dlc. 🙁

      • Yeah I still admire the classic look. I can’t remember exactly, but there was this golden eye game on the computer that I played and we had to stay stealthy going past trucks and stuff in a snowy environment. That golden eye game was my favorite.

  2. I wonder if they fixed the rock climbing exploit on Aquarium.

    Thanks to patches, the game has improved quite a bit on last gen, so much so that I bought the 360 version after having played the PS3 port for a while for free. The 360 version runs pretty good now, while the PS3 version is slightly behind.

        • The 360 version rarely has this issue thankfully. It’s part of the reason I bought it and stopped playing the PS3 version.

          • A good choice then. The matchmaking on PS 3 is horrible. I hate fact that I dont get my full XP when I get kicked out during the match or lost connection to host because rage quite. I am going 2 buy this weekend a PS 4 rip PS 3
