Only 21 days left and this baby will be on my hard drive, never to come off again. It will die with the hard drive.

I hate these kind of trailers. It's the equivalent of saying "yeah, war is awesome!"

Why not just watch the more impressive version, Black Hawk Down!

Man can't wait till this gets released :D PC beta is awesome of course it has it bugs and glitches but according to DICE they have already squashed them.

Still can't believe activision never released a open beta of MW3......oh hang on yes i can lol. Can anyone sense a buggy mess like MW2 lol
Commented on 2011-10-05 20:33:03
Beta or no beta of MW3, they had a complete full MP experience a month ago that worked great (based on footages) from COD XP and the game isnt out until next month.
Will it be buggy yes, but so will BF3 no matter what devs say, just like any other game out there.

Sath stop it now!! how the hell can you even say that? The Engine for COD hasn't changed in ages so yes it's gonna work ok. Frostbite 2 is brand new because DICE and EA like to reward their paying customers by ploughing more money into their development teams to try and push more out of this gen (yeah i know that sounded sickly haha!!).

At least DICE wanna try something different and not Acti's tired, worn out formula that they keep churning out year after year because people like you and i buy into the bs! This year they can go take a flying f*** off a cliff as my money will be for BF and BF only!

To each his own, but the last 2 COD's on PC were broken on the day of release. It won't be any different this time. All their attention goes to the console versions, cuz' that's where the real money is. BF3 on the other hand has the PC as main platform, which is pretty unique these days. So I'm guessing BF3 will have a better release than MW3 on PC.
Commented on 2011-10-05 21:06:34
better release on pc... which i dont think will mean all that much to EA when they end up only taking 40% that that MW3 will earn for activision.

Personally, though the beta's growing on me, i think they've shot themselves in the foot releasing such a glitched up broken demonstration of the game (one that is genuinely a beta) so close to the actual release. I can see it putting alot of people off the game (one of my mates, once hyped up for it, being a prime example). That coupled with their backing the pc version by heavily rotating pc gameplay footage for the passed few months may have not been the brightest of moves.

Hopefully EA will be smart and splash out on offering another fully polished demo before release

That Beta was a real reward...if your idea of a great reward is a double decker shit sandwich. COD does not need to change engine because love it or hate it, it is finely tuned to match the available horsepower in the current consoles. This is quite simply, a highly intelligent business model that allows the devs to make small tweaks and enhancements while working much more efficiently within a largely unchanged framework. Frostbite on console looks completely unremarkable, visually inferior for example to the Killzone games on PS3 or Gears 3 on 360.

If their goal was to push more out of this gen, then they simply failed as many are of the opinion that the visuals are actually below the standards of their own previous titles.

Innovation is fine providing you actually deliver but DICE clearly devoted well below the amount of required time making the console versions, too busy polishing all those "best graphics" awards I guess.

Gotta admit, I was pretty underwhelmed by the BF3 beta (Xbox 360 version). Had high hopes and, while it is good, I don't think it's enough for me to bite the bullet and get it.

Looks like Gears of War 3 will be the only shooter for me this year - fantasy RPG games FTW!

The beta, despite its shit ton of issues actually sold it to me. My feelings towards the game where that of indifference, i thought it was just another modern warfare themed shooter, played one, played em all. But it's set up so well and feels so good to play. Definately going to buy it. I DO need confirmation that all is well server side before i do tho. Nothing quite like a 31/6 K/D, only to be disconnected from the EA server mid M-COM dissarm. Once in while, sure, but every other game...lol, too frustrating for words.

Fact is 60fps in shooters is amazing once you experience it, I am sure you have.
That super smooth, fluid motion when moving around and aiming is perfection in shooters, why do you think it should be standard for action games like NG, Bayonetta...etc. because its fast, fluid and just good feeling overal.

I have CoD MW2 for Spec Ops and Black Ops for offline with bots, I have 10x more fun with that than I have with BF3.
Why? that hollywood-ish Michael Bay style to it, intense firefight, that great smooth fluidness to the motion is what I love about it.

Your opinion is wrong along with the opinion of people that say they prefer 30fps over 60fps.

This is wheter you like it or not.

What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (4 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (8 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (12 minutes ago)
