Some of you guys are def getting Spec Ops once steam throws up its Christmas sales.
Edit: When I played through it the second time I kept my difficulty setting turned up high enough that I died on a regular basis. Dying is actually part of the experience, especially when you consider the kind of meta stuff they end up doing with the various loading screens. They start off very textbook but get very unorthodox and fascinating as you go. Just my two cents, and I totally agree with MJ’s basic premise that dying and restarting a thousand times doesn’t help the flow of the story — but IMO it’s still an important part of the package. For the “full treatment” you want to see those screens.
