EA released a promo video for Battlefield 3 Operation Gridiron.
SKEET SKEET SKEET watching all these is like getting a prostate stim. j/k How the hell do these trailers always pump me up like this?!
Operation metro still sucks
At least they're trying to rebuild their image after the beta. It doesn't matter if you're a fan or not, you know a lot of people aren't buying BF3 because of it.
If this was done in August, how is this intended to rebuild their image? Also, so said that their image is broken? Any intelligent gamer would understand that the BETA is on a build that is a few weeks if not months old and nowhere near what the final version will be like. Take the PC for example, the PC version isn't even running on DX11 but rather DX10. So the graphics would dramatically improve come the retail version. Also I believe most of the criticism comes from closed minded old school BF vets who can't accept Operation Metro. Honestly, I like what OM does because it adds variety to the game. As much as I like large open battlefields, it would be fresh to take that BF experience to a small closed quarters environment. And finally, BF3 is still superior to MW3 in my opinions.
An intelligent gamer... 90% of the people who play games aren't very intelligent at all. You could probably argue that, the majority of the population of gamers that purchased CoD aren't the audience that you want to go for, obviously. So, how can BF topple CoD if BF is the audience it wants to topple is the CoD audience? CoD is easy, and it will stay the average gamer's multiplayer shooter because of it. Listen, I know intelligent gamers don't give a shit about things like this and have faith because they know better. Duh. But the intelligent gamers won't be driving BF's sales. It's the unintelligent ones who affect the majority of sales, not us--and that's the image they have to repair. We are the minority. All the opinions on N4G combined will never change the fact that more people will buy MW3. BF3 is superior. We know that. But in terms of sales, did you ever think that maybe it's will to be superior and difficult is what holds it back from becoming a huge success? I mean, guns are unbalanced as you level, you get attachments and armor as you level that make you stronger, and so all the noobs don't really stand a chance against you with that logic, either--better equipment and armaments for the more experienced player isn't what keeps a cohesive, equal experience together. This game never stood a chance, we both know it--and the criticism isn't from the old school vets its from the CoD fanboys hoping for a taste of what was supposed to be prime rib. This is what they will think of the game now. Because they are stupid. Understand that. Please.
this looks cool.
almost no difference between real life footage and bf3 :D
That's just what I was going to type. When those scenes were flashing by with only a second between them, I couldn't tell whether it was real or a game.
There's a massive difference! games haven't even scratched the surface of reality. The game looks really good but it's still noticeable for many obvious reasons.
its cuz they have been locked up indoors for too long, they cant tell the difference i kid :P
@no_more_trolling so what u saying is outdoors in ur area is a warzone ???
get your eyes checked :) i could tell the difference just fine.
I don't know, I personally distrust games that use real life FMV in their promos instead of 100% in game. Feels like they are trying to hide something or make something look better than it is. Why would EA/Dice think this was a good way to promote BF3? How is watching NFL players playing war games in real life making me want to buy this game? If anything it makes me want to go play some paintball. That said, I am getting BF3 and I know it will be good... Edit: As for the TV show... meh... if I remember I will watch it but not too bothered about it.
So you distrust a game that's shown you nothing but gameplay footage all year. Given you an open beta that your can play right now, and has many many many gameplay videos on youtube. Sounds about right
A typically yes...I do distrust game companies that do this. Now BF3 is a bit of an exception in that I already know its going to be good and I have my copy pre-ordered. But commercial campaigns like this don't endear me to a game. Its usually the opposite. That is what I was getting at. Not trying to say that BF3 is bad or anything. Just ad campaigns like this aren't very effective in my eyes.
I don't really see what the big deal is. It's an ad that I assume is trying to form impressions of how reality and virtual war scenarios could be similarly compared and executed. I frankly find it motivating...
i love the ending animation. so cool. gonna buy the PS3 version i hope DICE doesn't disappoint us.
OOOhh brother putting the beta to one side. This will please many of us come realese. SP looks jaw dropping co-op Gonna be awsome too mp-will be great when we get into thoes bigger maps. with continued support from dice as stated from them and future DLC this games gonna be played for sometime to come. LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT' did i just do that.
Trying a bit to hard huh EA?
fap fap fap fap fap fap fap fap fap fap faaaaaap
The beta is pretty underwhelming just like this trailer...
Why I would want to watch a bunch of stupid meat heads do combat training is beyond me. Also, why Drew Brees?
This game is a flop. Over marketing is the easiest way to tell the product will be underwhelming. This goes back to the Stone age.
Your dick is a flop. Catch yourself on.
And so the US marine/army cheesed up wankfest continues. What a load of bollocks. Whats the craic with the eggball players. Sure they need about 1 meter thick padding to play a fucking sport, FFS!
At least they don't dive around like little girls like in your kickball
I want you to play football and well see how girly footbal is when studs are hitting the back of your legs and you start crying like a girl :D
Reminds me of the promo videos for Medal Of Honor but it I don't see how this helps. The first few seconds made me thought it was Chevy commercial. If they want to do live action takes note from Vanquish.... http://www.youtube.com/watc... It was corny and gave me a good laugh which got me interested a while back.
