News Comments > Medal of Honor Warfighter in October; Preorder Bonuses
16. Re: Medal of Honor Warfighter in October; Preorder Bonuses Mar 7, 2012, 21:08 Rhett
 
That's a pretty shitty preorder bonus. Why would someone want to take content away from themselves with that bonus? Just like paying money for MP unlocks in Mass Effect 3... you're paying to deprive yourself of the "fun" (at times) grind for money in the MP.

I'd honestly be surprised if this wasn't bundled with some garbage beta invite or something, to try and boost sales after the last game.

This looks weird. And kind of awkward.

Reminds me of Silent Storm. Love it. One of my most anticipated games this year. Was totally shocked to read about it a couple weeks back... didn't know this game even existed. I thought it was just the FPS X-COM.

I'm downloading the just leaked Mass Effect 3 Deluxe Edition because, well, fuck Origin. If it were on Steam, I'd buy it. I have over 400 games I've purchased on Steam, so pirating is not my typical M/O. I bought Battlefield 3 in stores, only to find out it still used Origin and still was a pain in the ass. I swore I'd never do it again, and I intend to stand by it. I don't agree with pirating, but EA has taken a step backwards and will suffer the same casualties as the movie and music industry: If you can't five your customers what and how they want it, they will find other ways to get it. Origin is an absolute deal breaker for me. If EA wanted my money they'd sell their game everywhere possible, especially the largest online Digital Distributor (Steam) instead of locking me into their network and tools. Clearly it's about control, and that, I won't give. I'm about 10% done, should be good to go by the time I get home. EA, please note, I'd have happily given you $60 for Mass Effect 3, if you weren't obsessed with competing with Steam, who was probably your best ally.


I'm all for anti-EA, because they are indeed scumbags at the bottom of the barrel, but this post seems like you're trying to justify piracy... when you're also playing their game. If you hate EA so much, don't even pirate it.

There are even people on the Bioware forum clamoring for the ability to "buy better endings." Yes, buying DLC to finish the game the way they want it to end. What the hell is this? Does EA/Bioware really need another excuse to cut up more of future games to sell parts as DLC?

... Back on topic, with less rage:

I'm looking forward to hearing more about it. This is kind of what console gamers need, to get out of that buy-god-awful-shit-at-$60-and-be-thankful rut. Put 'em through one good Steam sale, and they'll see.

It looks good for a Generals mod. Not like he just slapped a bunch of new units with poor models in. Kind of a weird setting, but it still looks awesome.

"This time around it sounds like there will be slightly more player choice offered during missions, with one example described by OXM having players choose how to breach a building (kick down the door, C4, flashbang etc)."

Wow, how 1998 of you(hint: Rainbow 6). Fucking FPS games are so goddamned awful these days

Wow, that's hilarious. Fuckin' people with their short attention spans, and their Call of Duty. Can you believe that standing still and aiming down a sniper rifle's scope is now dubbed "hardscoping" (followed by various slurs) by these people?

Despite the "over the top" nature of the trailer (in a bad way), it's still an insta-buy, with how much time I poured into the first game. Hopefully there aren't just 5-8 guns that dwarf everything else this time around, though. And more item properties. That was kind of lacking in #1.

I want more stats!

When are they going to start charging admission to the skeleton farm to view her grave site? Money! Money! Money! Money! Money! Money! MONEY!

It turned out to not be true... HOWEVER, Sony did raise prices on all of her albums not even 24 hours after she died.

Why Jessica Chobot... eugh. She's actually in the game, too.

Though, I wasn't getting ME3 anyway... but I don't understand why she's in it.

If this is to be a game, it sounds very limited. Smart phone game maybe? I presume 99% of Blues Newsers have smartphones.

Oh gawd, I'm the 1%!

Really though, this sounds like some cheesy flash game aimed at social media, for some kind of promotion.

Wow. I'd say "almost depressing," but ... it is depressingly sad. Quality looks borderline shoddy. Additional views are just the same pictures...

Same people who buy this, probably bought Call of Duty Elite.

I can only hope more people lose interest in Diablo 3, not the least of which, because of this "delay".

Queue another damned monetizing scheme surrounding the game...

When I was a kid, my brother had Syndicate on floppy disks... but I could never get it to run. I'm very curious to finally try it out on GoG.

Also, might try the 360 demo... but I'm in no way looking forward to the game itself. =|

I dunno what to think about this. Kind of sat in the back of my head as a possibility (haven't tried D3 beta or anything - no gaming PC), but I don't know. Too much money-grabbing, no mods, intense DRM (for PC anyway)... no mods again. In fact, 'no mods' just about kills it entirely, by itself. Fuck Blizzard and Activision.

As noted on Reddit, these companies did not actually drop support for SOPA. They're all still members of the ESA (Entertainment Software Association), which supports the bill. (Source)

Very fun, cheap game for anyone with interest in aggressive tower defense games.

I really wish they'd speed up patches/DLC for consoles though.

They just couldn't let Command and Conquer die with dignity back at Red Alert 2. *sigh*

Now it's like the common whore.
