BFBC: Snake?

BFBC: Snake?

The developers of Battlefield: Bad Company prove once again that they have a lot of humor with this new video done with the game's engine and gently mocking Metal Gear Solid 4.

Nice one.

Amusing. That's exactly what I like about MGS4 though. It's so "out there" that even shooter/military game haters like me can enjoy the series.

BattleField is pretty good with the destructible environments and all its pretty crazy, you don't see many games now a days with that level of destruction in detailed environments. I played the demo and tried to fight a tank while hiding behind a house that I watched deteriorate with each shot till I had to run for it there really was no place 2 hide lol. Funny stuff.

Why would they mock with MGS?

It's not that you can put this trailer under "good advertising"
Laughing with a game that overclasses you on allmost every aspect!
Not smart from DICE imo!

Loved the ad!

Seriously, after that ad I downloaded the demo. It certainly worked to get noticed. I hear the MP is quite good.

I like the cheeky style they went for with bad comany, nice to see a war game that doesn't take itself too seriously. :)

amazing! :D

That was pretty funny.

I dont see why people have to get pissy about something that is meant to be funny.
Commented on 2008-06-17 12:16:30
For you serious guys: MGS deserves all the shit it gets, and it's way too little. People poop their pants over production value and Kojima, not the actual games.

Also it was kind of funny ^^
Too bad the game itself seems to be a bit meh? I haven't tried it but i haven't heard anything good so far.

Exactly. Why are people getting so defensive over a video that is intended as a joke? It's a bit pathetic really.

I actually love the demo and still play it regularly, ahead of COD 4.

Boring unfunny and mocking a game EA could never get close to achiving so instead they mock a game that they could never top. Well done EA even more petty than normal go back to try buying rockstar

^^^ Exactly what i'm talking about.
Commented on 2008-06-17 13:21:03
lol.. some people have serious issues with their "joke-detection" function lol.. stop complaining and enjoy the vid for what its meant to be :) I mean honestly.. some people on this forum behave as if Snake was their own bloody father.. this is entertainment, deal with it or even better; go to EA/Dice and complain directly to them. Then take their level of interest in what you are saying to them and scale it down to a 100. That should approximately give you the correct amount of interest that this forum pays to your posts... jeeez.. seriously..

my thoughts exactly! super funny stuff, like to see what they aiming at here, not taking themselves so seriously, Three Kings kinda thing. Looking forward to play this game in a couple of weeks.

And man, the animation of the characters is insane. Granted it's motion capture, but it translates very well to the models, they look so damn beliveable (tons of natural secondary motions and subtle facial expressions when they move and talk....)

And to the serious people around here...relax it's all tongue in cheek, don't get so defensive...

HILLARIOUS! The shorts by DICE for this game have been amazing with great humor.

First off, the game is made by DICE which has a number of huge hits to their resume. So all the "hate" talk about how DICE could only wish to make a game as good as MGS... they have. Twice. Heck, BF1942 and BF2 blow away any MP offering in a MGS game.

Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery. The fact DICE took the time to do a short poking fun at one of the admittadly cheeky parts of MGS shows how big and well known MGS is. Obviously it does MGS no harm and it was... you know... funny.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
