    ^^ not to mention the gay ass "elite" scam Activision is trying to pull and the fact BF3 releases 2 weeks before COD , BF3 has a HUGE chance of denting COD's Reign as top FPS.

    Yeah I can't say I'm really looking forward to this elite shit, but maybe it'll be ok (probably not). The kids are the reason COD does so well. It's pretty easy to see that's who Treyarch designed the game for. Definitely not the tactical shooter that BF, or to a slightly lesser extent MW3 was, that appeal to an older crowd.

    Activision is doing the same thing to COD that they did to Guitar Hero before, and Tony Hawk before that. They just have no concept of restraint

    ^^correct. However they do have teams working for them that make them $$$$$ so they don't really give a fuck and that's sad.

    Maybe because CoD is a fucking joke and even BF:BC2 was, objectively speaking, a better game than MW2 and BO in nearly all respects outside of multiplayer exposure. I really hope the Battlefield franchise gets some recognition - admittedly, they had some big fucking fails, but BC2 was highly underrated.

    Considering how fucking awesome the original CoD4 was, its pretty sad to see, but oh well. CoD deserves to die a slow painful death, and it will due to the sheep-like fanbase who continue to reinforce the dilution of the game.

    Actually a fairly accurate representation of how infuriating playing these games can be...

    The same thing happened with Socom. I knew 4 people that bought the new one, and all 4 traded it in within a week. I think they finally produced a shitty enough version to kill it.

    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. [​IMG] 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.

    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
