I'm cautiously optimistic on it. Infamous 1 & 2 were fun but flawed games with often rage inducing difficulty spikes. I hope that they toned down the bullet hell enemy AI and tweaked the controls, the clumsy cover and traversal was annoying in the middle of combat.

If more players doesn't mean more fun then I don't see how people are rationalizing the AI bots that take their place. People say the AI is horrible too, I hope to get into the beta and observe first hand though.

News Comments > EA: Battlefield 4 "Exceedingly Successful;" Complaints Are "Noise"
10. Re: EA: Battlefield 4 Feb 12, 2014, 10:28 Verno
 
Brace yourselves. The "FIX THE NETCODE!" comments are coming.

Of course they're coming, there are fundamental problems with some aspects of the gunplay. This is readily apparent even in just a simple comparison of BF3 to BF4 and has been documented in numerous videos. I can't count the number of times I've been killed by a guy who is staring at a wall, kill traded with another player or etc. People get that multiplayer FPS design is complicated and that hiding latency is never a perfect science but there are issues to be fixed here and it is certainly a step back from BF3 in this area despite improvements in many others.

News Comments > EA: Battlefield 4 "Exceedingly Successful;" Complaints Are "Noise"
7. Re: EA: Battlefield 4 Feb 12, 2014, 10:24 Verno
 
I think my problem with the Battlefield franchise is that development is supposed to be iterative. Developers are supposed to learn from their mistakes and subsequent games in a franchise shouldn't have earlier problems. BF4 is a case study in how Dice never seems to learn from its mistakes.

Gunplay in BF3 was good and yet somehow they have regressed in this "sequel". Balance tweaks from the prior game are undone then repeated for no seeming reason. Map design is all over the place again and it takes months to get older maps that were proven back into the game, if they appear at all. The sheer amount of bugs and other silliness is astounding, some of them were game breaking and others very minor but stupidly overlooked. One of the same joystick bugs from BF3 is still around in BF4. A lot of these things get pointed out in the worlds most pointless beta process I've ever participated in, only to be told "its fixed in a newer build". Then later on you discover that no it wasn't fixed.

They launched this game 8 months too early and that's being generous. Now that the PC version is mostly fixed up its a fun game, balance and other issues aside. It's just frustrating that we seem to do this whole song and dance every time. Why aren't they building on what they have? We don't need to reinvent the wheel every time and in many ways BF4 isn't a drastic departure from BF3 so it begs the question why it has so many more problems.

I like Battlefield because there isn't really anything else like it on the market but its a frustrating experience at times and that's without going into how the community for the game continues to degrade.

Agreed. I didn't care for the 360 version much but when I got the PC version and started modding it I had a blast.

Ignore the trolls in this forum who have only watched youtube videos and have never been in game. I have been in several betas and I enjoy this game. The questing is the best of any MMO I've played with good stories.

Sure, there are still some bugged animations, but these can be fixed. The world graphics are excellent. Of course, they are not better than Skyrim, as some have said elsewhere.

ESO is as close to playing Skyrim with your friends as you will ever see. There is an open beta on the way, try it out for yourself and make your own decision.

Hahaha whatever, at least Youtube videos have the excuse of being a passive experience, this was just really by the numbers and unengaging. I love all things Elder Scrolls but they didn't do a very good job of differentiating this from any other MMO I've played and the combat engine almost put me to sleep.

Slim I highly suggest trying the open beta for awhile, do not preorder this sight unseen as it has the potential for massive disappointment.

and he suggests that some of the twists in the story are allegories to his experience.

What a pretentious douche. How about this for a twist? You were obnoxious in a public medium and people responded in the manner most deserving. This guy acts like he was bullied all throughout childhood or something, victim complex.

It's a console game. And it not only doesn't move forward but takes steps backwards on several fronts. $60 plus a monthly sub for this is laughable at best. F2P within 6 months, definitely inside a year. Bethsoft wasted a ton of money on this.

They'll probably make it back on the name alone but I agree that it's a very run of the mill, boring MMO.

Just last week there was an attack at the high school not half a mile from my house. The perp was a former student who came with a knife. The police came and the perp attacked them. They could have easily shot him dead for that, but instead shit him in the arm so he dropped the knife. The kid has a history of mental illness, and apparently went off his meds. Now he'll have a chance at recovery.

That's actually unbelievably stupid and goes against what cops are trained to do. People can close moderate distances surprisingly fast and you might only have a second or two to evaluate and make a decision. There would be a lot more cops injured or killed if they had to second guess every situation and attempt non-lethal shots with a firearm (which makes no sense as PHJF points out).

Yeah, I'm too stupid. My IQ is around 150, but yeah, I'm too stupid. I bet you have a lot of 'true' friends in real life (not online) judging by the way you start every conversation by insulting people. Real nice guy! I'm sure you're very popular and people don't make fun of you every time you turn your back. I read your comments almost every day and can't help but think about how pathetic, annoying and miserable you are. Iím sure that most people here will agree with me even if they donít verbalize it.

So do you even have a point besides insulting/trolling people on a daily basis? Sometimes you have some brilliant things to say, but most of the time youíre just a jerk who likes to hear himself talk.

One of these things is not like the other.

Last of Us 2

I don't even need a sequel or other stories in that universe. Go set Naughty Dog loose on whatever they choose to work on, give me IP variety. It was a great game but we don't need yearly iterations of everything that proves to be moderately successful.
