I'm gonna mod my BF3 LAN copy so I can add my own VO and cursing when I play with my friends during our Lan parties or private servers.

Says the one with a curse in their title...

Isn't this game rated M for mature anyway? Our ears should have lost it's virginity by now...

movements2555d ago

distasteful cursing, distasteful game.

Viva Pinata more your style of game?

thedarkvault2555d ago

I don't think BF3 is going to have LAN, or mods for that matter.

ATiElite2555d ago

Well buddy that's the great thing about PC Gaming...if it's not there you can ALWAYS add it.

theonlylolking2555d ago

I hope not that king of gears of war cursing or killzone 2 because that was overkill.

pixelsword2555d ago

Not if you've been in the military, but I guess you're onto something in that they should have filters for blood and cursing for those who want to play vanilla. Gamers should have a choice and some have kids.

I wonder why cursing is so bad, but graphic head-shots are so good? any rate, I wanna see if all of the "journalists" will complain about BF3 like they did Killzone 2.

ReservoirDog3162555d ago (Edited 2555d ago )

Well a graphic headshot looks real more or less. Sick thrill.

On the other hand, a lot of games that cuss to a ridiculous degree has terribly*** written dialogue so it feels so stupid. Like a little kid who just learned a new word.

But well written dialogue with a lot of cussing (GTA IV for example) doesn't feel excessive.

It's all in its execution.

edit: And somehow I think BF3 doesn't have spectacular writers.

pixelsword2555d ago (Edited 2555d ago )

You hit the nail right on the head, Reservior: there's cussing to a ridiculous degree, terribly written dialogue that sounds stupid; just like a little kid who learned a new word.

And that's EXACTLY how the average soldier sounds.

The term "swearing like a sailor" didn't come from the perspective that sailors were docile and meek in word and deed.

I have to be truthful here: I've grown-up around a lot of people who have been in the military and to be honest, Most of the people who see in any war film will be under twenty-five, so they are kids learning new curse words, and are dying to use it in any situation that warrants it in their minds.

(please read the rest to the end so you can see my point)

Nowadays, a number of the soldiers are well-meaning, but they still curse up a storm. The rest are meatheads, hillbillies, rednecks (yes, there's a difference), trash of all types, thugs, drifters, loners, vato locos, and borderline career criminals who in one form or another got into the military to either escape certain trouble in the streets, learn how to handle a weapon, or looking for a payday in terms of college education or just a check.

Now I'm not saying that they will all remain as such, as almost all of them will find honor, a career, and a new respect for themselves and their country in service to it; but still, it doesn't mean they will turn into scholars, so a lot of them will sound... not so educated.

If you make them sound like a bunch of Boy Scouts on Steroids, it really detracts from the realism.

ReservoirDog3162555d ago

Haha, true. I get it. But still, there's people who know how to cuss and there's people who sound stupid.

Sitting in traffic in LA is realistic but that doesn't really happen in LA Noire. It'd be better if they forsake a little realism and get good writing.

And replacing them for words like friggin just sounds worse honestly.

All I'm saying is if there's cussing, which is realistic (only a fair few like me don't cuss at all), just get some good writing so I could enjoy the singleplayer.

pixelsword2554d ago

I can agree with that, for sure; plus, I'm not saying that I desire curse words, I just can rationalize it in terms of it's placement in the game. I also agree that there ought to be better writing: if not in the actual dialogue, let it be in the storyline itself.

Oh it has cursing! thats offensive to our nanny state! Boycott & Ban! /s

RankFTW2555d ago

If it can surpass Killzone 2's level of cursing then I will be impressed.

Raven_Nomad2555d ago

Should make the 12 year old kids that are going to buy this game happy.

Kon2555d ago

The 12 year old crew is playing CoD right now

PygmelionHunter2555d ago

lol @ the BF and COD fanboys trying to hide the fact that both their games are filled to the neck with 12 year old kids xD

@KeiserSosay4788 "BF for adults..." LOL!

Ser2555d ago

You are such a blatant CoD fanboy, it's positively hilarious.

Raven_Nomad2555d ago (Edited 2555d ago )

I enjoy COD for sure, tried to play BF a few times, but it was god awful. Too many snotty kids either whoring vehicles or trying to

So Call Of Duty lacks objectives? lol
Funny, when I play Demolition, Search and Destroy or Domination I could have sworn you had to complete objectives to win the games? Guess I was


KeiserSosay47882555d ago (Edited 2555d ago )

ugh....I don't play COD to AVOID 12 yr old kids. I don't know why you seem to think it's the opposite. In my experience its been COD(for kids and noobs), BF for know, because there are objectives and teamwork involved. lol


funny how all of those gametypes you listed end up turning into spawn trap TDM
