Wet (Wetland) : A term meaning to be wet, literally wet with blood in one's hands.

RATING: M for Mature
VOICED BY Eliza Dushku

Yeah. I know. WET has been out for a long time, but I thought Rubi deserved her own thread. She is such a total badass. Doesn't put up with anyone's crap and she'll do anything for the right price. When she gets her money, she leaves. No questions ask, then retreats back to her home somewhere in Texas with her bone-yard.

For those who haven't heard of the game, the story goes like this:
Rubi Malone, a hired handgun, willing to do anything for the right price, is hired for what seems to a typical, regular job. Snatch the kid and bring him home to daddy. But when Travis Ackers comes home to his father, they have a bit of what you might say - a falling out. Rubi is then set-up by her own client, and now she's ticked. Really ticked. She's going to get whoever played her and bring them to payback time. She can trust no one. But although Rubi has excellent fighting skills and well as acrobatic ones, she is not without strong, agile, and clever enemies. She's going to leave a massive body count in her wake so she's going to; Lock and Load. And these criminals have just met their match.

TRAILERS

This was the first trailer that came out for the game in 2007. Bethesda and Sienna almost canceled it along with Ghost Busters, but luckfully, Rubi was saved.

This is not a great quality video, but the following ones were shown in 2009's E3. The third is gameplay. CAUTION: Strong language in the Gameplay Trailer. I'll give links only so that the page will load quicker.

RUBI'S SKILLS

Rubi always carries her "monkey pistols" and her katana where ever she goes. As you progress into the game, you will receive dual shotguns, sub-machine guns, and a crossbow.

As for acrobatics, Rubi can fire while jumping, sliding on her knees, seducing goons and running on walls. During these acrobatic actions, the game enters slow motion, and she will automatically aim at a second enemy, allowing you to shoot at two enemies at once. She can also combine her attacks, such as wall running off a person or performing a sword uppercut while sliding. Rubi can also regain health by finding bottles of whiskey. When she finds whiskey, she takes a swig from the bottle, then throws the bottle into the air and shoots it for health. Sometime's Rubi's face will get covered in blood and she will go into a murderous, berserker-like rage. These sections are presented in noir style, with bold red, black and white visuals. Rubi's attacks become faster and stronger to fight against large numbers of enemies during these sections, and killing chains of enemies extends her psychotic fury. There are also motorway sections that feature shooting integrated with quick time events.

SCREENSHOTS

Here are three screenshots from the game.

Well I hope this doesn't get closed, cause I worked really hard on it, and I didn't see a thread about it already.

Considering the lastest post was just last Wednesday, it's been a pretty recent thread. Sorry. :(

Well I'm gonna be ****ing ****ed if they close it. Spending two hours on a thread for this game and then it getting trashed is just bull. I searched for it but didn't see it. So yeah...

Plus mine, has wayyy more info on the first post.

doesn't matter who's thread has more info in the first post. The fact of the matter is that there was a thread before this one ;)

So, bye-bye thread. Ibtl. :D

I'm sure Nate would have been more than happy to edit some of this info into his post.

And actually his seems to me to have more in it.

That's really *****y. You may be a genius with creating stuff on the computer, and may take you only 10 minutes, but it took me about 2 hours. Because I take a lot of detail in my posts, so you need to think before you speak.

There is another thread, and it has more detail. To be perfectly honest, the only person you should be annoyed at if this closes is yourself.

TRLegendLuver
10-07-10, 11:58
No because people are rude, ignorant, and need to think before they speak.

Anyways, to get to the point of the actual thread, I hope they make another sequel.

OMG! :rolleyes: Don't take things so seriously guys...

The simple fact is that this is a duplicate thread and it'll more than likely get closed. Just accept that. It doesn't matter how much time you spent on it or whether the OP has more info than the other thread. :)

LightningRider
10-07-10, 12:02
+1! This seriously got out of hand, should have just been ignored for the most part.

TRLegendLuver
10-07-10, 12:03
BACK TO THE FREAKING TOPIC AGAIN: I wonder what their going to do. I hope a sequel, since Trantula moved her hand at the end and we never killed the 'German Cowboy' as Rubi called it.

^ Aha aha aha. Not funny.

It's not a terrible game. The acrobatics are amazing. I only wish that Lara could do most of them and sometimes in slow motion. They really need to add more to the game asa in the way of acrobatics and action.

No, die! This game is slightly bad, but at least it was a fun romp for at least 1 replay lol.

Honestly Paddy, I don't see anyone acting like a wannabe mod here. It was simply pointed out that there is a previous thread to which the OP threw a little strop...

Perhaps but did more then 2 people have to go on about it?
If a mod thinks it should be shut then well leave them to do so :p
I can understand why the OP is upset about it though she did put the effort into the original post.
Guess Im just trying to see it from both sides.

Going on, the Game was very linear, had shoddy graphics, and was rather repetitive. :\

Couldnt be more repetitive then bayonetta? xD

LightningRider
10-07-10, 12:42
It was! Bayonetta was interesting however, there were big epic battles! Wet had none! Only QTE's. XD

michaeldt
10-07-10, 12:44

yeah, but Bayonetta's combat system was quite deep. In Wet, run from wall and shoot, slide on ground and shoot, jump and shoot and there should have been combos for the sword rather than just [] [] []/x x x :(

LightningRider
10-07-10, 12:45
I hope they improve on the combat system in the next game. I especially loved flowing between different moves, and the targeting system was amazing!

Paddy
10-07-10, 12:47
Ive played worse games like Deadrising and Beowulf, Ill probably get Wet preowned then if its that short.

Paddy: It is short. Like, I finished it in one day short. 3-4 hours at most.

It just raises up the ante to make it longer actually.

Ah, this is true.

Well, point being, there's no need to get one's knickers in a twist over it. It's a duplicate thread, and all duplicates end up in the junkyard eventually. Why people continue to address the topic when there's an original thread is beyond me, though.
