i'm sure i'll be excited once it's a few weeks away..but right now i'm all modern warfared out. Halo's much more of a needed different pace this year.

Funny how EA can base a game on conflicts happening right now without so much as a fuss stired..yet that THQ game got totally raped by the media and "cancelled"

You mean six days in fallujah. It was never cancelled, Activision just decided not to publish it. The game is finished and they are waiting for a publisher to step in.
The reason why there was so much commotion about the game is because it tells the real story of an actual event that happened not too long ago. Medal of honor doesn't tell a true story of an actual event, but uses the background of the war in Afghanistan, which makes it less personal, and in Medal of Honor there will be 'a good ending', like a Hollywood movie.

Looking forward to it.

Guess the public is only ok with people making money out of tragedies if hollywood makes the money out of it ( I'm looking at you World Trade Center and Flight 93).

i know it was never truely cancelled.

It's funny how theres a line drawn between a real story of an actual event..and a game based on actual events going on right now. Whys one less sensitive than the other?

I think because it doesn't have a real face. (don't know how to say it in English). One is fictional, the other isn't. Like a movie of a fictional murder and a movie of a real murder that just happened. Also the connotation of it being a 'game' doesn't help.

yeah... the difference between based on actual events, and inspired by actual events.

I just pray we dont get a game turned into an american patriotic fetish throughout.

Today I read an interview in a Belgian magazine about MoH. Some Tier-1 operators are working together with EALA on the game. They have set some rules about the game: no real military tactics as used by Tier-1 and the Tier-1 soldiers have to come out as 'good' soldiers. So probably it will be patriotic fetish.

So the bearded guy in the poster was inspired by the Executive Producer.

All the proceeds of United 93 went to the families of the lost and charities.

The publisher was Konami. As it was, it was the Japanese parent company at Konami, ordered that support for the game be pulled, once the 'controversy' over it started up. The American subsidiary has gone on record as saying they were behind Six Days, 100% of the way.

Chances are, if Activision or THQ had anything to do with Six Days, we'd be playing the game already. THQ needs the publicity (good or bad) of being attached to a high profile game, and Activision would have just redubbed it Call of Duty: Fellujah Warfare, ending any controversy and selling a bazillion copies all in one move.



As for Medal of Honor reboot, I hope this game rocks the socks off of everyone and goes on to sell a bazillion copies. I'm tired of giving Activision my hard earned money, if all they are going to do with it, is water down my favorite franchises and screw over my favorite developers with it. So fuck Activision in the nose. Long live Respawn. Long live DICE. And long live anyone else who is making AAA games, and are not associated with Activision.

I hope they don't make the same mistake as Activision/IW did on PC with MW2's crap restrictive online system.. If they do, this game is useless (to me) no matter how cool it looks or plays..

Nope, dedicated servers like in Bad Company 2 are confirmed.

Also confirmed in COD:Spec Ops.

I still don't think it's enough, though. Rented servers (with no user level access) are good, but we're still missing dev tools. If BC2 proves anything, it's that competition is still horrifically difficult without them.

looking forward to this one. Hopefully they start up the MP Beta soon.
Commented on 2010-05-15 19:12:22
i hope the MP will be like Battlefield 2:Modern Combat as its been done by DICE

Bad company 2, altough good, still isnt anywhere near Battlefield 2:Modern Combat in terms of fun. Conquest mode is a joke in BC 2 aswell

This Greg Goodrich seems to be an undercover MOH ! Hm...

  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (2 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (3 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i see he had major impact on halo:ce, halo 2, halo 3odst...good sign (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz There are a couple of videos of him flitting about the 343 offices and talking about Halo memorabilia and while it isn't confirmed, I'd be surprised if he isn't on H6. (3 Hours ago)
