Interesting to see CoD go futuristic though.
Not only for stability as Sigfried1977 mentioned, which is important for combat, but a quadraped is significantly more durable and less reliant on either significant weight assigned to gryoscopes or significant reliance on a computers ability to manage balancing a biped while the structure may be absorbing shots and hence forces which may topple a biped.

Properly done in a combat situation a quadraped can be slowed such that 3 "legs" are always on the ground making it difficult to topple. In a stable firing position 4 "legs" are down giving an extremely stable firing position versus 2 "legs" or evel 3 "legs".

Basically it's less complicated and far more stable as a weapons platform than a biped. Especially in when moving.

It's one of the main reasons heavy logging robots/vehicles are generally quadrapeds or hexapeds versus being bipedal or tripedal.

At such size and speed as in the trailer video, you might as well have a tank or wheeled video since you won't have to worry about stability or a tank with some kind of legs that can be extended so you still get the benefits of a wheeled vehicle while having the legs for getting over obstacles.

I still think a quad would be too slow and complicated to be useful in the urban environment. A humanish biped (at 20 ft high or so) could theoretically climb buildings, make better use of vertical cover to lean or look over structures, and probably run faster, not to mention could manipulate the environment using it's arms. Yes, it would require more complicated systems to keep upright and be balanced, but it's agility would probably be much greater. I think all these things would be worth the risk of losing a leg which of course would put it out of action. Like anything else, it would just be another part of combined arms operations.

After being letdown by BF3, I think I might be in for this. Haven't played CoD since MW2 so I've had a good "rest."

I might be tempted to get this one depending on what else they show for the SP (probably PC ).

I'm going with 360 version. I've learned my lesson about hacking and exploits on a PC fps over and over now.

I would be skipping MP for sure, in which case graphics is all that's left for me to decide between the SKUs. Oh well.

I had no idea so many people played COD for its SP. I thought SP had been dead since after COD4, and people buy just for MP. But you guys are all talking about getting it for SP ! Personally, I think if u want a good 60fps shooter campaign, u play RAGE, not COD.

It's been dead to me since CoD2, so go figure.

COD, COD2 and COD4. The series died for me after that. COD3, did not feel like a COD game at all ! The gameplay was just not COD, except for one instance. THere could have been more, but I quit after a while.
I have just bought a used MW3 to chk it out again and see whats up, but I am not too positive. Basically want to try out the MP. We used to play COD MP in our studio to cheer up during crunch times, but that was all. From what I see , it was a completely different MP then and now. Lets hope I have some fun with MW3.

But my new PS3 isn't here yet, so have to wait to sample it.

I ended at WaW. I played MW2 on a free Steam weekend, and I pretty much said "F this". Whereas up through WaW, the series stayed decently realistic, after that, it just got ridiculous. I miss the larger maps we got with the first two main games as well. I still have great memories of Hurtgen.

I am not saying its bad or anything. Its clever, very very clever in getting people addicted to it. Distilling a gameplay down to its basic core element is pro's job. Original IW nailed it with COD4:MW. It takes deep understanding of a play system to distill it down to its most basic element, so that every one can play and then build a reward system so elaborate that people stay hooked.
I luw how your arrogant enough to believe you know the formula as to why cod sells in the numbers it does and even go so far as to "fix" others statements.

The only reason I play cod is because, like the person you "fixed" the statement For also believes, that shooting feels right.

I can aim exactly where I want, when I want, and I can to in 1/60th of a second.

This combined with the fast pace makes the multiplayer a winner for me. It requires ridiculous amount of skill at top level, and there is little to no chance in hell for any newcomer to have even a remote chance of doing well in mp.

You can customise your gameplay using perks/abilities and custom gear in MP and play your own way, even though the basic option of actions perform-able in the game, though robust, are very limited and basic, leading to huge appeal of the game.
Um. Isn't tithe same in all shooters? You basically can run around, jump, and shoot?? IMO the customizations mean nothing. All that matters is that the shooting part is really well done, most games have ripped of the whole xp and customize part.

This part is just LOL. The few bullets to kill is because the game is trying to portray some semi realistic arcade shooter.

As far as making it more noob friendly? That is just silly. There is a reason why my kill death ratio is usually mind blowingly good the first weeks of the game. It's because few bullets to kill combined with super fast aiming makes this one of the most unfriendly games for noobs out there.



In bf3 you can steal a tank and you can get a lot of easy kills vs infantry. In cod? If the game was noob friendly, I wouldn't be able to do 100+ win streaks in FFA. There is simply no chance whatsoever of a noob winning over a skilled player in cod, sure he might get a kill or two, but you do that in any game..

Hell, mw2 has to be the most noob unfriendly mp console game there is. This is just because most good players are running 2 shot kill UMP + akimbo 1887's. and the really good ones will use the OSK intervention and quick scope it at maximum sensitivity.

(actually mw2 isn't, q3a mp would hold that title - although I dunno if it's on consoles.)

unfortunately i dont know why i felt like that.

back about black ops, i wish they able to bring awesome heavy scripted set pieces in "low profile" style like those Sniper in bush mission in CoD4.
The intense is superb and good distraction/break from the majority bang bang boom boom set pieces the player experienced the whole game.

but if not, then awesome boom boom action like on Black Ops 1 is still OK.

Bf3 has accelerated aiming, meaning that depending on how much you move the stick from the center position increases the speed of turning. This means that the game requires a lot more getting used to in order to get the same accuracy as cod, because you have to learn the different acceleration levels across the stick. 5% left is much slower than 80% left turning.

I'm cod, (and bf2bc and about a gazillion othershooters) sensitivity decides how fast you turn - not where you are from the center. A lot easier to get used to!

This is somewhat simplified (deadzones etc involved but you get the gist of it)

KZ2 (haven't played 3) had the same accelerated aiming setup as bf3 which ruined it for me and many others (however they eventually allowed an option to have no acceleration).

The over the top part in Black Ops was the reason I enjoyed the campaign so much. I pretty much despise the usual "America Fuck Yeah, now Let's Shoot at some Brown Skinned People"-type of shooters, but Blops, whether it was intentional or not, felt more like an ultra violent Bond movie to me (going as far as including a super secret and super evil underwater base), and that's something I can get behind. Also loved Sam Worthington's horrible American accent. Almost felt like he didn't even try.

Oh, and everyone who appreciates a nice sp shooter campaign should absolutely try Resistance 3.

Is anyone getting this for PS3? I have been pretty cold on COD due to getting BF:BC2 and discovering that BF has a player base that is, in general, more likely to actually try to assault and defend objectives instead of treating every single mode like TDM.

Anyway, I was going to skip this one (hated MW2, skipped MW3, was okay with BlOps but didn't like the maps), but then I found out that yes, indeed, bots will be available in every single mode except S&D. Frankly, nothing has disappointed me so much about this generation as the complete lack of a suitable replacement for Timesplitters, and this game is going to be about the closest thing in terms of how I can play it without having to resort to playing with Random Internet People.

I pick MOH over this simply for the same reason as yours. I don't want to play with COD crowd for long. Its fine as a distraction but I prefer BF3 CQC over COD anyday. i am hoping MOH Warfighter will be more BF-like than COD-like and anyways COD crowd will be busy with COD and I might get a fresh new game with a bit of BF CQCfeel.

TBH I think the killstreaks more than anything have ruined COD. In terms of rewards, which gives a bigger high--capturing a flag in Domination, or getting to pilot a helicopter and rain death down on the opposing team? I think this alone explains why so many people would rather focus on getting kills than actually winning the game.

I think the new BF3 has a strong influence from CoD 4 -imho, one of the best CoD games ever, and a evolutionary game-.

I've never purchased a CoD game after CoD4 but despite the criticism they get sometimes, after all this time I think CoD got it right. They sacrificed some of the resolution to make the game runs smooth as silk, and yet the game doesn't look bad. That's an achievement in itself, imho.

c o d was good at 1 time, its just over milked now. c o d 1 2 and 4 were awesome after that the whole series just plunged downwards.

it's not that the COD mp is bad or anything. it's just that we have played it millions of times b4 and its just the same still. it feels as if there is not much to do and it gets boring pretty quick .I can last only 1 week in 1 COD mp. After that I find myself back in battlefield 3.

You Get killstreak rewards from capturing objectives etc in mw3.

That said, s&d is very objective based and I'm quite shocked with the level of skill some of the players have.

Either way for me mw1,2,3 still have the best cqc combat. Simply due to its raw pace, and gun feel!

Nothing beats the feel of eliminating a team by quickscoping them!

anyone ever played this game yet? some of the people who have played the leaked xbox version say the campaign is abysmal. I really want to know how the new missions work: the strike force missions. since they are optional a lot of people arent playing them. 2 people who I know played themand they say the strikeforce missions are really boring .

but I want to know the impressions of Beyond 3d.

if only activation would let us buy the multiplayer separately I would buy it on day 1. I just can't pay 4,000 for a game when a regular game costs only Rs2500.

For now I have borrowed modern warfare 3 from my friend to just have a short change from battlefield 3 again.

Yeah, I'd only be interested in COD for its MP. I might get this too, as my long time Live crew doesn't appear to like H4 MP (or BF3 MP post-patch).
