Why blow such hype on something that should've been on Armor games?

I hope they bring back some of the San Andreas mechanics. That might make the series interesting again.

MoH, last installment was short, flawed and expensive

It never occurred to me to compare the last MoH to the life of a harlequin baby like that, but it totally fits!

Finally, a shooter sequel that's honest about being a complete waste of money. The industry has needed this for a while.

I wish more companies were this honest about their mistakes before releasing something. Communication like this is one of the many reasons I'll pretty much always buy anything Introversion makes.

What goddamn planet are these people from that "outsourcing boss battles" even sounded like a fucking comprehensible idea?

Wouldn't this completely screw up PvP? Not that I ever cared about PvP in D2, but I know lots of people did.

Wait, won't this get the game canned? Lucas is a homophobe who has long and staunchly maintained that homosexuality does not exist in his galaxy.

I've never heard that. And if that's true it makes the casting of Hayden Christiansen a little odd, because if he's not gay, there are still certainly enough rumors about him to put off a real homophobe.

Upon googling, I have an explanation: there was a big fuss about some statement that there are no gays in Star Wars a while back. However, that was apparently made by some random mod, and was soon reversed.

Add that to some knee-jerking that had a bunch of people generating conspiracy theory-style junk about how Lucas himself was the source of this, and you get the mix up in my original post.

So, it won't get canned over this. Oops.

This is why developers, regardless of how good they are, should not be in charge of QA. They won't. They think like scientists, so they'll say "we'll get much more useful data from asking thousands of customers for their crash reports anyway."

theyve got destructible environments, why not player models too? with fully rendered entrails - im talking every internal organ and all blood particle fx measured down to the last fluid oz
That kind of stuff is only allowed for WWII games. If a war game set in the current conflict showed what actually happened to soldiers in it, it'd be bad for the military's PR.

I have a passing familiarity with the strict German anti human violence in video game laws. How exactly did they accomplish this? Did germany's definition change or did they have to censor something? They claim they didn't censor so the definition changed? I want to know the details!
Personally I think "Bethesda did it" is all we need to know here. Bethesda, and by extension Zenimax, are much bigger than id. Therefore, corruption.

ďThat doesnít mean that I donít want people to feel that war is not good,Ö We are trying to do something that is more mature. Mature not being gore Ėsome people confuse the two. Thatís childish actually, to want more blood.Ē

Meanwhile, it is totally not childish at all to portray a home-team soldier as an unambiguous hero who always obeys a code of honor.

I think that's one of the larger issues people have with the game without realizing it.

You can't just play this game like an FPS. It's very much a MOBA game... and you need to pick your spots and battles accordingly.

If you try to rambo in those games you just get killed and "feed" the other team. just killing bots and hiding from the other pro's is infinitely more effective than just trying to deathmatch your way through a round.
That's great in a traditional MOBA, but MNC is different enough from the rest of the genre that they seriously need to modify their approach. What you'd probably call "ramboing" in MNC is decent teamplay in most FPS. The way you control movement and the amount of information you have about your situation in a shooter is simply too far from the RTS paradigm the genre was created in.

Boring? Nah. MNC is very, very fun.
The style was fun. I wanted to like it. Even the tutorial was pretty fun. I blew up a bunch of robots! Woo!

The actual gameplay was a death march. Up to a minute to drag myself up to the front to find anything worth shooting, only to be killed on sight by somebody who already knows the map. Again. And again. And AGAIN. The game was clearly trying to feel like TF2, but instead it was the worst moments of CS and DoD combined.

Hm. The original didn't come out that long ago. I guess I wasn't the only one who found it boring as hell. Maybe they'll fix it this time?

I'm pretty sure you're either trolling or shilling at this point. Nobody could accidentally miss the dozens of times people in this thread have made it clear that they're hating on EA because they have had consistently poor policy and leadership for years. It doesn't matter one bit that Valve's EULA is similar, nor is their lack of mastery over the world currency market at all relevant. Valve has proven through their deeds that they are a better company to buy from than EA. The only name in the industry I trust less than EA is Activision.
