I could see how fans of the series would be disheartened by this news...
Yes, many of us are. Some were expecting the battle of the bulge. We got Inglorious Basterds: The Video Game. Not saying its bad but kinda like in MGS2 when raiden became the main character.
Well its better than more of the same I guess.
I was disappointed at first, As I was hoping for a true sequel with more of what we have grown to know and love from the BIA franchise but honestly I am rather excited for this now, Should be a lot of fun to play. Inglorious Bastards style. Maybe in future we'll see a more traditional BIA title? Maybe moving away from WW2? I would love to see a Modern Warfare themed BIA.
liked the movie and the previous games..not so sure about the combination though..
It just makes me sad knowing that we won't have a proper BiA game until probably 2014 at the earliest, if not 2015. I was really looking forward to the continuation/conclusion of Baker's story and then we get...THIS. WTH, Gearbox?
looks good to me but i never played any of the other brothers in arms titles
Frankly I'd prefer borderlands 2 but I wouldn't mind so bad if I felt as though fans of gearbox's work were being satisfied. After all brothers in arms came first, so those longer term fans deserve some service too, but from the looks of it this trailer has gone down like a lead balloon with BIA fans. So it just feels as though the sequel to my favourite game is getting delayed for a game that nobody really wants... It's like if you're gonna watch your wife fuck another guy then she should at least do a good job of it. Also gearbox, I don't wanna rag on you too much, but DNF, aliens colonial maries, apparently Duke begins, AND Brothers in arms furious four? Jesus guys finish one game first THEN start making another one.
I really liked BiA. Keyword is liked. Reviews will determine whether or not I give this a try
Seems like Left4dead with Nazi's. Can't say anything bad about it yet since there isn't any actual gameplay footage but obviously its a different direction for the series. For better or worse. Pitchford must be feelin' the Dukeness still with humor-filled action games on his mind.
Not getting this. Nobody wants this, we only want Borderlands 2. I gotta say that this was the most disappointing aspect of E3 for me, having the Gearbox guy come out and announce this sh*t that no one cares about instead of the sequel to my second favorite game this gen.
