Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising - Reality Bites Hard

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising launched back in 2009, bringing the realistic military operations to console for the first time.

Seeing as EA now own this franchise wouldn't it make sense for DICE to develop a new Operation Flashpoint game? Battlefield has realism to a certain extent but it isn't exactly "real"

Free Games in December 2015 - Which Platform is Best? | COG

COG writes: Every month, two armies stand in a field and stare at each other in an intimidating manner. A battle royale ensues. Sony and Microsoft stand at arm's length from each other, slapping each other with white gloves in a distinguished fashion. Actually, they just give away free games. Which lineup rules the roost in December 2015? Let's turn to the tale of the tape.

I am thinking EVERYONE wins. Whether the games are great or mediocre, they are downloadable with your console online service of choice and give you some value, and even more gameplay time. YAY to games.

MzDino3086d ago

As long as there's free games, I'm happy.

retrogamer093086d ago

Both of the lineups are crap, although I'm enjoying Van Helsing so far.

MikleDemi3086d ago

Van Helsing and Sacred are better than anything the PS4 is getting.
Lol Sony is giving us an episode of a game (something that Telltale routinley gives out for free), and a game that has been part of a $3 bundle on the PC.

Having said that, I expected more from both as a Christmas present.
Still, Gold takes it hands down seeing as how all Gold games can now be played on the XBONE.

Ginpachi-sama3086d ago

Lol freedom wars alone is better than everything xbox one is offering this month

MikleDemi3086d ago (Edited 3086d ago )

I agree with you, BUT I can't play Freedom Wars on my PS4 now can I? I have played the heck out of it on my Vita and love having a digital copy now...

Having said this, the Xbox One got MUCH more and better games than the PS4. PS4 owners petty much got kicked in the balls this time around.

@mikledemi
LOL at the guy trying to justify to himself why his decision to buy an xbox one was worth it. If you like the xbox, fine....enjoy. But don't come here trying to make it sound like the xbox is "winning" something. You sound silly.

MikleDemi3084d ago

I have all 3 consoles and a PC. I'm a gamer and not a fanboy like most people here seem to be.
Just calling things as I see them.

medman3084d ago

Stop your nonsense son. Not even your mama believes you.

elarcadia3098d ago

Castlestorm was already free on the XB1, so that is a wash, but I am pleased with the other titles! I have been dying to play Sacred 3 (even though I hear it is pretty bad) because I thoroughly enjoyed Sacred 2. I have been wanting to play Thief as well. All of these are games I have wanted to try, but didn't really want to buy, so this list works out great for me!

OC_MurphysLaw3098d ago

Actually I have heard the opposite on Sacred 3, in that its actually pretty decent. Thief in the same boat, and I am happy to pick that up. Not sure I really care about Van Hellsing... Have the Xbox One version of Castlestorm already. Operation Flashpoint also peaks my interest but I know it was middling in terms of reviews when it came out. Overall decent finish to the year.

Monster_Tard3098d ago

Sacred 3 has extremely bad user rating on Metacritic and Steam. I haven't played it yet, but I'm guessing who ever told you it was decent lied.

Grown Folks Talk3098d ago

I enjoy the Operation Flashpoint games. You have to be much more patient & realistic in your approach. Fans of run & gun shooters won't like it. More strategic.

elarcadia3098d ago

Sacred 2 had not so great ratings, and I loved that game. So I will give it the benefit of the doubt hehe ;).

AngelicIceDiamond3098d ago

Hey sacred 3 is mp I don't mind givin it a go. GWG value is way better when they first started. They cheaped out on it when it first started. Glad we're gettin 4 free games with BC.

KiwiViper853098d ago

@AngelicDiamond

Ahem... 5 games...

AngelicIceDiamond3098d ago

@Kiwi For December only? Or is 5 games what they're doing from this point on?

Hoffmann3097d ago

Absolutely nothing about Sacred 3 is decent.

They did nobody a favour by promoting this bad bad game as one of the free ones in December.

Van Hellsing is also only pretty mediocre.For December this is weak.

Yep, Games with Gold better then PS+.

nX3098d ago

That's an overstatement.

3-4-53098d ago

Every month it's a bunch of games I have no interest in playing.

These aren't deals. There is a reason nobody is buying those games. Giving them away for free isn't going to help.

Free is free I guess though.

vegasgamerdawg3098d ago

Are you the guy the decides what's good for everyone? Or are you suffering from delusions of grandeur? Pick one.

NickieNick3098d ago

It's not a wash for those that don't have an X1 yet, which is about 70 million 360 users..

Loved Thief, very underrated and will check out Van Helsing, it's a top down game like Diablo, IIRC.

Damn MS, really good stuff. I like that they are reaching for bigger games, not just indies. Always wanted to try Thief and will definitely get Operation Flashpoint.
