DICE has said that they plan to cater to both single and multiplayer players by making Battlefield 3 a bigger product.
I usually do skip out on the Singleplayer for the multiplayer gaming, been doing it since Rogue Spear, if I wanted a story, I'd watch a movie.
Well you missed a looooooot of good games, sorry for you.
Don't be, their usually all the same plot just told in a different way. Usually it's either world dominance or world destruction, that's like 90%+ of the FPS games out there that tell story's. I watched my GF finish BC2 and it seemed like they had some crazy weapon in the plane, which seems like they still do these kinds of plots. You might like pickles on your burger, but I take them off and throw them at the birds, SP is just not my cup of tea when it comes to FPS games. @AlienBlaster I'm a PC gamer, I never really run into 12 yr old kids screaming, tho it's not too hard to find people 20+ screaming like a 12 yr old kid.
Okay, what about the single-player games that *aren't* FPSs. Do you play them?
@above, he wouldn't buy them, because it's not his thing. Seriously guys, it's not that hard to understand.
@a_squirrel Are you telling me this guy might only play multiplayer first person shooters??? If that's the case, he IS missing out - plain and simple.
@MidnytRain Nope, it's just for FPS games, any other genres I enjoy the SP aspect.
I'm complete opposite, i rarely play multiplayer games i prefer a strong singleplayer. When i play games i do it to chill out and immerse myself in the story, listening 12 year old's screaming into their mics is not a very relaxing experience. Which sucks for me since these days it's all about multi while singleplayer gets churned out as an afterthought.
I like both. An awesome multiplayer that can keep me coming back for months and an unforgettable single player (for good reasons of course). The best of both worlds. =D
your a dumbass
dice are awesome
. No really, these guys talk like they are reinventing the wheel...lol Halo has done all of this YEARS ago but it was Bad company that taught them this...0_o...somebody send them a copy of 13+ million selling exclusive Halo 3. COD has recently turned into Halo with COD Elite. What about Gears Of war that has really been a catalyst for the whole Firefight/horde/spec ops that have taken the world by storm. 4 player story based co-op...lol EA-Dice must live in a vacuum or something. Next, they will turn into Johnny C at Id and claim they invented fire and electricity or something insane like " cinematic multi-player " ;D
is that really you in your avatar?
Not really, I mean they're just saying that BF3 will be more of an all-round game unlike BF2 which didn't have a single-player campaign mode or BFBC2 which had a campaign mode but which was more satirical than anything (and even then it was clear MP was where basically all the work went into).
I wonder if you've ever heard of Battlefield 1942.
Battlefield and Socom invented a lot of mechanics that people enjoy in COD and Halo so, yeah you're wrong.
Too many none-promised remarks Dice.....Careful
Not that I don't like Singleplayer, but how come these days it's always cater to this and cater to that? I'm sick and tired of hearing that word! Been seeing lots of my favorite game franchises ruined by all this "catering" that's been happening recently. Same things goes for "streamlining" too.
Hello DICE, so you announced BF3 will not have modding tools? Want to sell lots of DLC do we? Screw you. Your no better than Activision now. Congratulations. Oh and thanks for calling modders and your fans stupid. And no i'm not going to buy your game now. 2 minutes mark:
Man that sucks, i hope they release them some time along the line, unlikely now but with enough pressure from the community maybe they'll change their mind. There is so much possibility for great mods with the power of the Frostbite 2 engine. They should look at Valve, the company that owes much of its success to mod teams.
I'd buy the DLC is it made the game last longer and it was at a reasonable price. If the DLC is like bfbc2 Vietnam then I'm fine with that. A whole lot of content for a reasonable price
They need to tie both more closely. Unlocks in single and multi can effect how the other can be played.
