At first I didn't want to put these videos online on the english version of the site, but a few people asked me to so there there are. So these 2 videos are the 2 parts of the first 10 (actually 15) minutes of Call of Duty 3, but unfortunately it's the french version with no way to play it in english so you'll have to live with the quite bad french voices. Anyway, as far as the actual game is concerned it's quite good. The engine as been quite optimized since COD2 and runs at a rather good 60fps most of the time. The gameplay is mostly the same as COD2, and it certainly does feel more like an expansion pack than an actual sequel, but the fans of the series certainly won't mind.
I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (5 minutes ago)
They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (8 minutes ago)
That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (9 minutes ago)
it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (9 minutes ago)
EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (10 minutes ago)
NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (13 minutes ago)
Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (28 minutes ago)
