For me they are just additional aspects to the game. You can choose to use them or ignore them.
Going out of my way to kill extra enemies in some areas when it was not needed actually increased challenge and playtime for me.
That is just a distraction and it does not deter you from enjoying the game fully. Stepping into the corpse does alter the game because if you don't then you don't get to upgrade your suit.

If you rather go jump up and down on the corpse to your heart's content, by all means do so, just like going to look for diamonds on Far Cry 2, more power to you but, do not let that become intrusive in the way you can or can not finish your game, hence, why I was hoping that at least one of the options would give you the change to play the game w/o it and still being able to upgrade your nano suit.

Agreed, but I don't want upgrading to be too easy. I don't mind having to work a little, instead of racking up points for doing nothing but shooting something from 1,000 yards away. What bothers me more are trophies. They're just feel-good, useless junk. If you're going to have people collect stuff, let them collect stuff so you can fly a @#$%! helicopter or something. Dead Rising 2 - if you collected, I believe, $2 million from slot machines you got keys to a Hummer and you could run over a bleep-load of zombies. Let me use what I earn.

I don't know what's gotten into game-makers. I'm sure they grew up playing sports where no one kept score and everyone got a participation ribbon.

yeah if you just want to rack up points for killing things, try bulletstorm.

My beef isn't about collecting points or car keys or souvenirs or trophies or whatnot, in and of themselves. It's what happens after you get all that stuff. I'd rather there be utility from all that collecting instead of a pointless, feel-good reward.

It doesn't have to be but then again, what fun is to upgrade to the baddest nano suit option if you can only use it for the last 20 minutes of the game?

I don't know, shooter games should not be about collecting crap to make the game appear longer, if they want to give me side missions, I am all for it but don't make it about collecting dog tags so I can win a Trophy at the end of the game or some stupid crap like that.

I'm only halfway through the campaign - once you reach the end of the game can you not restart with the total bad@ass suit?

If you just want the maxed out suit you can just use a trainer to give yourself mad nano points as soon as it's unlocked.

OK, but would you have to shoot everything, don't finish the level (or checkpoint), die and repeat over and over until you get all those points? I'm playing the hardest mode so why can't I just do that anyway? They don't give you a billion more easy-kill aliens to kill on the lower levels, do they?

No the mad nanos don't start appearing until very near the end, when you're zapping aliens all over the place. ...the last 4 you have to kill give 5k each as well I believe. Not much of a point in that as the game is over right after them.


...p.s. you're going to want stealth tracking or the end will be damn near impossible on hard.
