With a month passed and plenty of time to digest. Which multiplayer should you put your time into?
Modern Warfare 3 also has staying power but mainly till the next iteration of COD hits then everyone will move to that one.
COD is the same shit BF3 is new. Out with the old in with the new. Never again, will i ever be that fucking stupid; stupider than stupid, a fucking idiot. Thats who i was when i kept buying COD, a stupid fucking idiot. Not anymore, but theres alot of s.f.i.'s that need to be saved. Save the idiots, prevent them from buying cod. Enlighten them, that they are s.f.i's being exploited for profits; without any real value being given, just copy/pasted content/buildings; with DLC included on disc (that you need to pay extra for) lol, s.f.i's. Even the company (IW) that made COD stopped making them because Acti fucked them (The founding team, now its just a mixmash of people who dont know wtf they are doing); just like they fuck their customers. Acti wants money, not happy customers given valuble content; they want to give as little for as much as possible.
"COD is the same shit BF3 is new." How is it new? BC->BC2->BF3 all the same just like CoD. Duh
BS it is BC/BC2 are console games/ports they are in their own battlefield area; not in the same boat as BF 1942, Vietnam,BF2 , 2142, BF3. BF 1942 > Vietnam > BF2 > 2142 > BF3 they havent reused engines WITH BF3; they rebuilt the game for BF3 without rehashing like how COD does.
I'm pretty darn sure BF4 will be the "same shit".
Not really. Black Ops is still #2 on most played Xbox Live games.(above Battlefield 3) Even Modern Wafare 3 is up there in the top 5. Modern Warfare has both staying power and star power.
Whatever helps you sleep
Both good games for different reasons
staying power? CoD 4 has more players online right now than BFBC2!
COD sucks though. That is the difference.
How is having fun sucking? Just because a game is not 100% tactical that does not mean the game sucks. MW3 for me was well worth the $60 and I have not had this much fun playing a FPS game since Half Life.
Players or Hackers sir?
it has more hacked players online too
MW3 will be played until the next COD comes out.look at black ops and the non-stop ride it still has after its release.look at how many gamers are playing MW3 compared to BF3.lets come back in 6 months and see what game is still in the top 10.if black ops is an indicator of staying power then MW3 is in for a long ride.
people will still be playing BF JUST like they still play BC2 right now... Still.
MW3 has the same modes as MW2 with the exception of a couple of modes. Confirmation mode is broken. i kill alot of people and pick up my dog tags/teammates and still i am in the red...WTF The gadets are broken as well. the death perks do not work more then half the time. i am at level 61 and i am taking it back to blockbuster today... i have a online pass with them. i am going to rent skyrim or saints row next. BF3 do not have enough players on the battlefield. alot of people are camping are flying helicopters/jets. more times then not there is like 4 vs 4 battles taking place on these big a$$ battlefield. BF3 feels more like a great looking RPG then a FPS game.. i spend more time traveling to the battlefield then i do at the battlefied. i bought this game... this is my last BF3 game that HAS 12 VS 12. wtf the PC is where this game shines. the console version is a ripe off...I am just waiting for MAG2. this is where my money will be going next...
I am bubbling you down for managing to type like Don Vito from Viva la Bam talks.
Huh? What in the blue hell is this so-called "Blockbuster"?!
it is a USA video rental store. you can do a internet search and find out more about it.
are you 12? The way you type makes it really hard to understand what you're saying.
Aside from having improved graphics, Battlefield 3 is very similar to its predecessors. Shooting games don't evolve much.
It has jets (which is new on console), destruction (falling debris can kill players) and server browsers. It also has a hugely improved weapon customization system (from BC2). It has prone, new weapons and gadgets (not a big one since CoD can say the same thing, I guess) and customizable firing modes. The tactical light shows how graphics (great lighting) can affect gameplay and it has the new suppressing fire feature. But I know what you mean by saying they don't evolve much. They are all in first person and are all point and shoot. They can't change the fundamentals but they can change the things surrounding it. :p
Sure, they added more ways of killing people. But as Ron Perlman says, "War never changes." By the way BF2 on PC had jets and I was referring to the experience that PC players had. Yes, destruction makes a difference but not as much as I had anticipated based on the demonstrations. Most players I've seen still use their rocket launchers to shoot at other players rather than to strategically destroy buildings.
"Yes, destruction makes a difference but not as much as I had anticipated based on the demonstrations. Most players I've seen still use their rocket launchers to shoot at other players rather than to strategically destroy buildings." Play on some of the city maps. People make REAL good use of the rocket launcher by smoking people out from sniping. "Sniper in the window!" *blows it up to hell* Overall though ShoryukenII basically stated it well: "They can't change the fundamentals but they can change the things surrounding it."
If bf changed too much it wouldn be bf. BF has always been about just what the name states,If they decided to go outside the box like call of duty did it be very foolish wouldnt be same game can you imagin bf3 with killstreaks calling in for dog's or some kind of care package. Call of duty was never like how it is on consoles today.
COD doesn't have anything new really. the stuff they call new was taken from other games... Kill Confirmed? come on man that's been done in Halo, Crysis, and Counter strike mods. Some of the new killstreaks were straight rips from Homefront. Same engine, worse performance than black ops, Classes? Came from other games like (cough) battlefield and several other shooters. What's new in MW3? Multiple attachments on guns.... done already. Lag compensation? LOL crippled the game. What else.... they changes the names of the perks... which do mostly what perks did in older COD games?
Well seeing as the previous COD titles are still doing better than previous titles, looks like the staying power is also in CODs court. Battlefield 3 is no more of an advancement over Bad Company 1 and 2 than MW3 is over Black Ops and MW3. You can only change so much before you lose the formula that makes a game franchise successful and turn it into one of the other franchises. Let Call of Duty be Call of Duty, let Battlefield be Battlefield. Lets just enjoy them both for what they are and not try to turn them into the other game.
Both have their flaws idk why people keep arguing about it. I'm sorry but BF3 on consoles seems lacking especially compared to its PC counterpart and MW3 is basically MW2 with new maps, renamed perks and some extra garbage thrown in for good measure to make it seem like a brand new game. Honestly i tried them both and both suck arse so whatever you pick your getting screwed.
Staying power my ass. Bf3 was boring after a week of playing it. Even diehard battlefield fans on my friends list stop playing it. People who claim that bf3 is new either has never played a battlefield game before, or they are just a blind and stupid fanboy.
Amount of BF3 players online right now on Xbox 360 - 91k That's really low. It will only keep going down over time. Then people will move on to the next EA game with pretty graphics.
Battlefield new? Hah! New graphics, but the gameplay stays the same as always. Also, DICE did not start from scratch on Battlefield 3. Frostbite 2 is an upgraded Frostbite. I don't think it's anything special on consoles.
