Shit, you're right. The only title on there that doesn't blow nuts is Return to Castle Wolfenstein, vintage 2001. I counted 13 different CoD products, including 4 "Zombies" titles. yikes.

Either way, you know the franchise is going down the shitter when I have chicks on my facebook exclaiming: "OMG double XP weekend for COD!! YAY!!" So sad. CoD4 was legendary; what a fall from grace.

I've never played Socom, but thats pretty brutal. There's always going to be a market for tactical geeks who love their shooters done in that fashion, its just too bad that its simply more profitable to dumb it down for 12 year olds.

I'm gonna play it more thoroughly this week-end. Played two maps yesterday night and had some fun. Looks promising as hell.

I just hope it's better than MW3 , with this new engine and graphics it has mad potential.

Here's what a friend who is in alpha testing said:
Quote:
Unplayable. This and Bad Company 2 are seriously the only games that run like dog shit just for having a dual core instead of a quad.

Its bad design especially when Crysis 2 looks and runs 10x better. Even on low settings (which are vomit-inducing, unlike Crysis 2's "gamer" setting which is still graphics porn) it runs like ass.

Also the gameplay is very dumbed down. Guns kill in 1 or 2 hits, very uncharacteristic of the BF series. People are already starting to say that its like a reskinned Medal of Honor. Its like its in hardcore mode but with the map and HUD and everything, and hardcore mode fucking sucks. Hip firing is is accurate as in Call of Duty with steady aim. This was expected to be like a return to roots of the series, but the only changes they made to that end was make the knife a separate weapon plus give it a slower animation and add prone. BC2 takes more skill than BF3.

I never thought I'd be saying this shit about Battlefield fucking 3 but its the truth man. I want to love it but the gameplay just feels wrong. VEHICLE HEALTH REGENERATES.

Pros: sound effects are great

Anyone who is in alpha or knows other people in it want to comment?

So who's playing? Anyone on PS3? Add Schat31

I think it's awesome, and I"m not really much of a FPS fan. Haven't played the campaign at all but the multiplayer is diverse and engaging. Still trying to figure out how to use all the vehicles effectively but I love what they add for a dude who's experience is limited to COD. Whatchy'all think?

The game is nothing like the trailers. It doesn't suck but it's no MW.

Having been a CoD fan boy for so long its a refreshing change of pace (a lot more coordinated teamplay) and a much harder game to master (I say this as a 2.36 k:d in MW3). There have been times that I really felt like I was in a war zone.

I'm playing the PC version for those interested - tag is slign6lade

Anyone playing this game regularly on PC?

^Kind of. The 64 man rooms are crazy. I might have to buy a new mouse to fully enjoy the game.
