News Comments > BF2143 Hinted?

BF2142 had pretty rigid teamplay mechanics that most people didn't seem to get.

It certainly won't work without easy in-game squad VOIP.

Plus the maps sucked.

I'm skeptical...

That's pretty bogus, simply because it was very rare for anyone to use the in-game VOIP. The game did indeed have a much tighter emphasis on teamplay than BF3, but it also had a frankly more intelligent playerbase that could more or less figure out what it was supposed to do most of the time using the commo rose and help from the commander. The latter is a very important part of that equation, even if it wasn't always actually used. Having a decent commander was nearly as much of an advantage as having a competent pilot in other iterations of the series. (BF3 excepted, since that's blissfully been somewhat democratized.) I very much hope that 2143 isn't just a dicktease, and I'll buy it in any case. But I'm going to be highly disappointed if they continue to leave the commander/assets out of it.

Oh, so they're bringing it back to the PC? Do you suppose it will actually have all the DX11 crap it was supposed to?

Honestly, I expect them to just declare it a console-exclusive again, and I will care about it exactly that much either way. I didn't hear a single good thing about it anyway.

I am so sick of these games, first dozens of WW2 games, then loads of modern warfare titles, now endless French Indochina War ones. Is there no originality??
Would you like to play a Revolutionary War shooter? Rate of fire expressed in rounds per hour! Woo!

There's just not a whole lot of interesting places to go with shooting if you're staying on Earth and out of the future.

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."

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.

“That doesn’t mean that I don’t want people to feel that war is not good,… We are trying to do something that is more mature. Mature not being gore –some people confuse the two. That’s childish actually, to want more blood.”

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.
