DICE is going to destroy CoD...

RedDead2705d ago (Edited 2705d ago )

Going to destroy all Multiplayer shooters you mean

LOGICWINS2705d ago (Edited 2705d ago )

BC2 is the best online shooter I've ever played. Battlefield 3 will likely blow my mind. The only problem is that even a year after release, the majority of players I've gamed with are NOOBS at Bad Company 2's multiplayer. They STILL don't understand how to play as a team.

EA needs to create some sort of tutorial for people who don't know how to play a SQUAD-BASED shooter properly.

If so many players still can't handle the complexities of BC2(Battlefield lite)...I don't know how they will adapt to the gameplay of a full-fledged Battlefield game.

DeadlyFire2705d ago

As good as this game looks I can understand some novice players sitting in a corner just staring at floor tiles for the first few weeks. haha

jjohan352705d ago

I hated squad mates who camp and snipe the entire game. It's impossible to find a BC2 game without these camping snipers on my squad. Nowadays its hard to even find a full game.

inveni02705d ago

The only Battlefield game I ever played was 2142. I really dug that game. I played it all the time. These newer games almost require that you use a headset, and I hate talking into those things. But that's just me. I'm a quiet gamer.

IaMs122704d ago

Been playing battlefield since the start, 1942 all the way... cant wait for this iteration looks amazing! Hope i am amazed and jaw dropped as i was back when 1942 came out, it was a beast at the time, maybe not graphics but just shear size.

Undeadwolfy2704d ago

This is a good vid for the BC2 noobs.

SephireX2704d ago

Complexities? Since when was gaming complex? Its playing a game we're talking about. If you want complex, go write a game instead.

BC2 is the best multiplayer game on consoles no doubt. It amazes me that more people didn't buy it. It sold well but that game deserved CoD numbers. Battlefield 3 is the multiplayer game to get this. CoD is going down town!

They already did with BF BC 2. Question is if the COD crowd will take note and dare to try something new, or just stick with re-buying a slightly more broken version of the same game from Activision.

I'm thinking of rebuying BF BC 2 just to play the Vietnam pack. I've tried finding the same MP enjoyment in other FPS shooters this year but with zero luck.

NukaCola2705d ago

Uncharted 3, Gears 3, Zelda, Mass 3, and ES:V Skyrim come out in November. All AAA material. Next COD comes out in Nov too. Which do you think will seell the most? Some sheep need redirecting.

jbiz3202705d ago

@NukaCola Gears 3 is scheduled for September, Mass Effect 3 is in December (supposedly)

Kurt Russell2704d ago

I wouldn't worry about the Vietnam pack. It's not as fun as it looks, regular battlefield play is a lot more fun.

DigitalPiracy2704d ago

Honestly though, I don't want the CoD crowd playing Battlefield 3. They don't know what they're doing.

Activision has just pissed their pants. BFBC2 was and still is the best online shooter. The DX11 PC version looks so better than COD not to mention that I prefer the BC2 game play versus that easy to use arcade COD style.

Battlefield 3 and DICE are really pushing the tech and with a 30 second clip have just put the industry on notice....That The King is Back!!

Domer252705d ago

Want now!!! Yeah I am a brat.

Vorgier2705d ago

Destroy is an understatement.

Maddens Raiders2704d ago (Edited 2704d ago )

let's see if they back it up! It's going to rock if they can.

Ravenor2704d ago

It's hard to not beat an iterative update of a 4 year old game. Sales is a whole different story, but the quality in CoD has been surpassed by other shooters pretty well every year since CoD3.

TheGameFoxJTV2704d ago

They did that with 1942, and again with BF2. lol CoD was never better.

Snakefist302704d ago

HOPE It sells more than COD!

10 sec footage set me on fire for the whole year.

Just can't **** wait

gypsygib2705d ago

BFBC2 had the best FPS MP last year (the worst SP though) and COD is getting really old fast.

If anyone is primed to take the crown, it's Battlefield.

RyuCloudStrife2705d ago (Edited 2705d ago )

Personally, I'd like to see the new CoD be something different, but it is indeed getting old...

I been thinking, Activision should release a CoD MP title solely just for that, instead of releasing a whole new game that has DLC content in its MP...

That would be a better idea don't you think?

EDIT: Then they're craves of charging us for online would be satisfied, but I think if it was like that then it'd be worth it because, that would include the costs of new maps and weapons they'd release from time to time and as long as the quality of the online play is as solid as an exclusive (meaning little to no lag, connection errors, servers etc.....)

Ace_19752705d ago

I will laugh my ass off if Activision release Modern warfare 3 on the MW2 engine. It's going to look like a Gameboy game next to Battlefield 3. This game raises the bar for FPS. Killzone 3 is the last and best example of old school FPS.

LunaticBrandon2705d ago

Killzone 3 old school? Thanks for the laugh.

DanSolo2705d ago

I'm pretty sure that there is no MW2 engine, every COD since COD4 has been on the same engine.

I could be wrong.... highly unlikely though!

RyuCloudStrife2705d ago (Edited 2705d ago )

Ever since CoD2

@ below: That was a funny read +bubbles

DanSolo2705d ago

Really? Damn, I could have sworn that COD 4 was a totally new engine!

So I was wrong... but in being wrong I was actually more right then I was then when I thought I was right..... lol

gypsygib2705d ago

Killzone is very new school and the cover mechanic is the best I've seen in a FPS, they should all have it.

Ingram2704d ago (Edited 2704d ago )

I agree with the first part of your comment but...Prrf...what...? Killzone is not "old school" by any means, it has sci-fi cinematic custom controls, like resistance, at least that's my opinion.

I actually enjoyed the SP of BFBC2.

Mp was good, but needed larger maps.

This game fits the bill.

Philoctetes2705d ago

I never even finished the SP campaign.

The multiplayer maps were awesome, but we needed more of them.

DarkSpawnClone2705d ago

I enjoyed the Mp tho it could be better but hell i don't play battlefield for the single player MP is really really fun with friends more so then cod.

I agree larger maps and more players i would like to see 20 vs 20 for console that would be awesome.

BlackKnight2705d ago (Edited 2705d ago )

I liked the SP alot actually. The characters in your squad are great. Listening to their conversations is funny and sometimes was even somewhat deep.

Shackdaddy8362704d ago

I liked the plane level of the SP. That was so fun just to tear into everything.
