Woo microtransactions! Hell yeah!

Haha, I'll take this with an unspoken /sarcasm.

I actually like that you have to grind to unlock everything instead of the game giving you everything gives you a more sense of pride

BF3 also has micro transactions, you can buy dog tags and stuff.. Point is, you don't have to buy them so please don't act like they are trying to force you to buy it.

@DSQD-Detox

Microtransactions should not exist in fully priced retail games, please do not stick up for the man in the suit. Just because you don't have to buy it does not make it acceptable.

Yes but part of those microtransactions are unlocks for you to by all the stuff that you are supposed to earn in game. Thats why I stopped playing BF3, in multiplayer you would get owned by some newb that has everything unlocked for an extra 60 bucks so they end up with twice as much extra stuff than the people that had been workiing to unlock things the legitimate way.

Pay to win blows, EA blows!

@Violents

If you get owned by a "newb" you suck

Doesn't matter what gun/upgrades he has equipped.

If you're good at the game then you can beat anyone. Especially with the right team

This guy PM'd me about how I'm a noob because I dont like the pay to win scheme they have set up in BF3. Dude if you have to PM me some nasty messages than just go stick your head in the toilet because people like you ruin games online, your that jackass that just screams at everyone and cusses and acts out because people cant reach through thier consoles and smack you for it.

@Tonester925
perhaps noob was the wrong word to use.
I mean someone who is coming in and is like level 2 and has everything unlocked. Just because your a low level doesnt mean youve never played a shooter before, it annoys me when someone has everything unlocked before me when I worked my ass off for all of it, it just makes the game seem like a waste of time when anyone else can just walk in and get everything you "worked for" just for some extra cash.

Next-gen seems like a guarantee at this point.
WolfLeBlack  +   588d ago
I'd certainly say so. I would expect that it has been developed with the current generation in mind, because that's where the biggest base of consumers will be, with a next-gen port due to hit the PS4 and NextBox.

As for Battlefield 4 itself, I have to admit I'm sort of struggling to get excited at the prospect. Although it was back in 2011, it feels like just yesterday I was playing BF4 on launch day. It still feels fresh in my mind.

A part of me is hoping they throw a complete curveball and reveal Bad Company 3 :D

TBH, I would far rather see BFBC3, or even BF2143 or maybe another WW2 game. Im getting a little bored of the standard modern FPS. The only reason BC3 would excite me is blowing stuff up is so fun!!! I feel it was lacking in BF3 :(

I never realised till now that dynamic weather in battlefield would be amazing. Air Superiority in a lighting storm :D
KillrateOmega  +   587d ago
Goddammit that sounds so awesome!

It'd be hilarious if you could get hit by lightning. I just have this image of being in a dogfight and seeing my opponent randomly get pwned by Mother Nature. There could also be strategic importance to this as well as the possibly of being hit by lightning could discourage people from using air support. It could be a random occurrence that you can't account for.

I hope they drop current gen consoles and focus on making next gen the base. To many things shine through on the PC version that were obviously console limited.
unchartedxplorer  +   588d ago
Oh I can't wait to play with 64 players on consoles. It'll be epic!
Gamesgbkiller  +   588d ago
I hope its like BF3 AT LEAST.
Tonester925  +   587d ago
I hope that with all the DLC that I've bought (Guns, Game Modes, etc...) will be IN GAME already in BF4.

What I didn't enjoy as well was the death animation. I went to the BF3 forums and voiced my opinion on how this game DESERVES to have a killcam! You can shoot a sniper bullet from across the map and right into someone's skull and your opponent will just fall. Or you can get blown up by a rocket launcher and fly 1000 ft in the air, but in your screen you just fall down.

I was thinking of a sort of Max Payne 3 bullet time killcam where the camera actually follows the missile, bullet, grenade and into your opponent.

----------------This will be perfect for the PS4 and the Share Button----------------

At the end of the game, their will be a series of killcams that can be classified in the following categories. Longest Headshot, Multiple Kills, Lucky Shot, Noob (for suicide or mass team kill and everyone can laugh at you!), Fastest killing streak, etc. If you make it on one of the video highlights you will gain extra XP. This will make players want to up their skill so they can be showcased.

Maybe they can create a short film of every kill that you have gotten, like on Madden you can view every play. Your videos can then be saved in an archive and then you can create a compilation and share it with your friends.

I'm going off the top of my head here bare with me.

Since we are going Next-Gen I would love to see more gore! Heads exploding from sniper bullets, running people over you will get blood on your windshield. Get blown up by a grenade but it doesn't kill you? Your legs a severed and you just have to sit there like Lieutenant Dan on Forest Gump and try to get a few more kills.

Maybe a bleedout system. I hate being kill by someone that gets a lucky headshot on me. I watch the "Killcam" and it says they have 1% health left. Sometime 0% left! Must be a lot of decimals going on.

Realistic Destruction please! I loved the destruction on Bad Company 2! On the snow level playing Rush I can place C4 around the 2 story house, wait for my opponents to run in, blow the whole house up and have it crashing down.

In BF3 I kept getting caught on fence posts and obscure things that I know I should be able to blow up. It was just weird to shoot a tank missile at the exposed frame of a building and it just sits there. This is BATTLEFIELD!

I love the game.
