I don't know who would disagree with you. It really is funny, LOL.
Nafon  +   254d ago
Honestly, the title makes it seem a lot funnier that it actually is. When I read what the (single) bug mentioned was, it was a bit of a let down lol.

Off topic, but I never noticed the issue since i prefer playing in fullscreen borderless windows anyways. Makes Alt tabbing and switching to windows on other monitors 10x faster.

I'm sure the games share much bigger bugs than this one.

This is COD all over again. Yearly release of content that is priced full retail when it should just be DLC.
OrangePowerz  +   254d ago
At least the MP in CoD feels different between each game so far. Hardline feels exactly the same and if I woukd turn off the HUD and play on a training ground I wouldn't be able to know what is BF4 and what is Hardline.

People can crap on COD as much as they can but at least the people behind it make sure the game is playable.

I'm not educated in the subject, but could frostbite 3 be buggy? NFS: rivals was buggy a little bit, BF4 launched bad and although I didn't have many troubles past the first month lots did, and now BF:H is having the same bugs. 3 different developers all having troubles.
OrangePowerz  +   254d ago

Some engines are more prone to bugs than others because of how they are coded. Best example is the engine Bethesda used for Fallout 3, New Vegas and Skyrim.

Frostbite 3 is just only an upgraded version of Frostbite 2 and not really a new engine. BF3 already had it's fair share of issues. If you don't fix issues or don't carry the fix over you are bound to get them again.
Soulscare  +   254d ago
Yup, I'm the first person to bash CoD, but this is an all time low for Battlefield.

On topic, this is what happens when you reuse code!
Marcello  +   254d ago
Ok now they have gone too far, if they want yet another 50 euro`s out of me the least i can expect from Dice is new bugs.

To be fair these seems more like an EA issue since Visceral Games are heading up this game. The more I hear of this game the more I can't help but think this is just a reskinned mod. Still DICE and EA shouldn't have released BF4 in the state it was in (considering a developer's integrity is so vital) but this seems like EA just giving BF4 to another developer to mod

it really just looks like BF4 with a new game mode.
iagainsti120  +   254d ago
I have the Beta. It plays like a different game it feels more... like Payday meets Battlefield. It shoots like Call of Duty with slight bullet drop. Has toned down Battlefield destruction and vehicles. Overall it may not be able to win over the hard core Battlefield Veterans.

Oh dear...

I don't see why they are getting Visceral Games to do this game.

Look at the games they've made, nothing screams "First person shooter multiplayer developers".

I'd rather the team doing this was working on the Star Wars game or even working on a Dead Space reboot/re-telling

It just feels like this is a quick cash in while they buy time for next years Battlefield game.

Seems like they are resorting to Activisions tactics
crazychris4124  +   254d ago
They should have had these guys work star wars 1313 instead of this mod... i mean dlc... damn i mean game.
iagainsti120  +   254d ago
I need me some 1313. When I saw the first trailer I partied like it was 1999. I can see them making it a great game.
slate91  +   254d ago
Ea has literally butt-raped one of my favorite franchises. Dumbing down bf2 pc - bf3 and then the abomination release of bf4.
Hellsvacancy  +   254d ago
I thought bf3 was an "abomination" compared to my beloved bad company games, I had no choice but to adapt to bf3, I guess it was fun some of the time, not as rememberable as bc
cell989  +   254d ago
BF4 is actually pretty badass, most of the bugs have been ironed out. your comment is so late 2013, I still play the crap out of the game as many people seem to be doing as well since there is always full servers to play on
cyclindk  +   254d ago
Literally? That makes so little sense it makes absolute perfect sense.

Same old crap every year. It's expensive bf3 dlc just like bf4 was.
More like beta-field
cyclindk  +   254d ago
I think I may have heard that one before, but just in case you are the first or close to being the first I'll just say, Nice One.
OwnageDC650  +   254d ago
Cut and paste their way into our wallets!
Kurisu  +   254d ago
Was flicking through PS Store last night and this game is available to pre order for...

... £65!

I don't even care for the BF series (or any other FPS tbh, that genres not my thing) but I just had to express my disgust for that price tag!
LAWSON72  +   254d ago
I dont like saying I hope this game fails.
BX81  +   254d ago
I hear ya, but this might be the kick in the junk they need.
R0n0rve  +   254d ago
Wow. I have a strong feeling this game won't do well at all.
isa_scout  +   254d ago
Hopefully it doesn't do well. Games like Destiny, Evolve, and Rainbow Six Siege are trying hard to innovate the genre while games like COD and BF reap all the sales. My hope is this-gen we see the end of COD and BF as they are both franchises that sadly have become nothin more but huge money pits. I remember just a few short years ago BF and COD were freakin awesome, but greed got in the way of making great games.... So now we get garbage like this.
Honestly after seeing Rainbow Six Siege how could anyone still be excited for this crap?
andreasx  +   254d ago
I will probably pick up CoD this year instead of hardline, tried the beta and got tired of the game after a couple of hours.
shmeedy24685  +   254d ago
Think I'll be skipping Hardline at launch then. There's plenty of great games coming out the last 4 months of the year. I just wish developers could be given more time and give us the best game possible 'cause then we know they care to give us a great product, or if it's poor we still know they've tried. Battlefield 4 launch was a disaster and big games like Battlefield should run perfectly, especially considering the money that's spent on making it. Learn from your mistakes EA!
Debaitable  +   254d ago
I'm glad they had an open beta for this & I hope no one buys it. I honestly thought I was playing BF4 till I auto switched teams and I was shooting cops.
Eonjay  +   254d ago
You kinda get the feeling that they wont take it seriously until people stop buying their products.
happpy11  +   254d ago
I have a feeling that this game is going to tank just like the recent medal of honor games.
MrSwankSinatra  +   254d ago
Anyone who buys this when it comes out is part of the problem.
annus  +   254d ago
Wow, a fullscreen rendering bug the same as the old game? It's as if they run on the same engine! Oh, wait...
Aces17  +   254d ago
Reskinned Battlefield 4.
joab777  +   254d ago
I actually feel bad for Visceral. Back in the day they were extremely innovative with Dead Space. Then...they had to make it more and more an action game like Mass Effect...and less of an original horror game.

Now, while their counterparts are busy atactivision using some of that innovation to spruce up CoD, they r stuck making a Battlefield annualization. Damn. Id rather hav a true horror infused dead space reboot.

AND, I wouldnt b so down on DICE and their baby, but I read an article today that blew my mind and made me wonder if they hav lost their vision. It stated that they couldn't put their finger on why ppl loved bad company so much. What? They made the game and dont know? Now I am downright frightened that the Hardline single player will simply be a cops and robbers rehash of 3 & 4.
crazychris4124  +   254d ago
Im stunned
RobLoPR  +   254d ago
I knew it of the back... as soon as i seen it on E3, I knew they used the same platform as BF4. I first noticed when you score a kill, the point system is exactly the same. The maps and vehicles change but everything else is basically the same game.
Minute Man 721  +   254d ago
Don't buy this shit Gaming World, skip it
cyclindk  +   254d ago
So they got another group to make some new 3d models for BF4... 3 years for that huh...
TURKEYonWH3AT  +   254d ago
Lazy ass EA. What did you expect
Geekman  +   254d ago
The sad thing is people will care more about AC Unity getting a graphical downgrade.
LightDiego  +   254d ago
And these developers like to talk about another games and companies, lol. Release a game that actually works without bugs first.
After BF4 fiasco, no way i will buy this on the release date.

LMAO Looks like the ONLY Battlefield games STILL worth playing are the Bad Company games.
InTheZoneAC  +   254d ago
why are they saying it's similar when the hard line beta looks and plays completely different than any previous BF?

I don't see tanks, aavs, lavs, AA. I don't see any jungle or desert...
Plagasx  +   254d ago
Don't care, where is BC3?

Shocker, im done with bf for a while. I enjoyed 4 when it did work but no way in hell i'll buy this game.
