This is just like Hollywood churning out superhero movies every year but unlike Hollywood where you have to deal with aging actors with massive egos you just can't put out a blockbuster "wining formula" Batman movie every year, but I'm sure they would love to keep that machine going.

I doubt there will be a Battlefield 5 next year, it'll be Star Wars Battlefront/field instead.

And lastly there's a huge cost with making things too realistic that most companies have chosen to eschew pushing things to the hardware limit. With fewer games pushing the hardware, there's less incentive to upgrade.

For some people it's all about being able to max out the sliders and still have a playable frame rate. I tend to turn off almost all of the extra "effects" if I can because I find it annoying to have motion blur, depth of field and lens flares everywhere.

If nothing else hopefully the "next gen" console ports start to look much better texture wise, having to suffer through the limitations of PS3 and xbox360 ports has been pretty bad.

SSD was one of the best upgrades I've done in a long time, especially for slow loading games like Battlefield 3. I read they screwed up the compression of the files or something, only the DLC packs seem to load off of mechanical hard drives with reasonable times.

Get an SSD just don't skimp and think it's only good for a boot/OS drive. You'll want all your main applications installed on it as well as a few games.

They'll have an open beta next month so we will see before release.

Dice is treating it as nothing more than a stress test, they usually pick a stable yet older build to do this with. Any broken or missing features are just assumed to be made to work by release. Everyone likes to spew "It's BETA!!!" when you complain about said missing or broken features.

If you're pubbing that's one thing, though why anyone pubs in shooters is beyond me to begin with. Other wise it's a one click bookmark on TS to get on with all your friends, it's not rocket science.

Some people can't always play with friends, it's not rocket science. Pubbing largely sucks because of the lack of coordination and voice chat helps with that.

An open mic in your ear with some fools horrible music playing in the background, people speaking foreign languages, people trying to be armchair generals bossing everyone around.

That's my experience with voice chat in games that have it.

I just really hope they don't release it in a horrible buggy mess like they did with MoH:Warfighter. They set it to always on and voice activated by default at release.

I still can't see the problems that Microsoft has being the result of just one person. Everyone loves a scape goat though.

This looked like a crappy tellatale adventure game in the making, I didn't see anything that reminded me of classic Sierra adventure gaming.

If they insist on supporting xbox 360 and PS3 then whatever they put out for Star Wars won't be all that great.

I'd make games based on Han Solo using the old books that put him in the Corporate Sector. No force powers, little Empire, but solid stories with interesting atmosphere.

They need more than just a new CEO, they need to reinvent their entire business culture. Google has taken over as the relaxed think tank college campus that Microsoft used to be. If they can't get rid of the large business bureaucracy then nothing is going to change for the better.

Well that trailer saved me from wasting any time actually downloading it, they even conveniently showed a glimpse of the insane amount of microtransation based items.

This is going to be just like Black Ops 2, dedicated servers with no direct control over them and no ability to pick which server you play on.

The only benefit is you don't have host migration but everything else feels the same as peer-2-peer matchmaking.

They could get a small following with releasing it as a commercial project but people are going to forge ahead with zombie mods on Arma III and DayZ is already painfully dated. Looks like they thought it would be a quick trip to retail but got taken in with mucking about adding features to Arma II engine.

I'm sure the imprisonment of the developers didn't help any.

What the target demographic for these titles? 40-60 yrs?? Sometimes you have to let an IP GO..........

http://www.hottoys.com.hk/productDetail.php?productID=152

The IP is still viable, and target demographic is people who grew up in the 80's watching the movie. No little kid can afford those figures.

Arnold is just too damn old and replacing him with someone else is just wrong on so many levels.

Arnie isn't too old, he was great in The Last Stand! And looking forward to Conan the King.

He could be good as an "older" King, the ending of Conan is a classic image to work from but let's not even go there with pretending that Arnold could pull off the image of him traveling back to the past completely naked, and a CG Arnold could work but they'll still screw it up. I somehow doubt Arnold would let his image be shown as the ultra-violent villain blowing away people and the police ever again, petty sure he said so much in interviews.

These are the same guys making that really bad looking Rambo game, they put out a trailer with no animation for the bullets being fed into the machine gun while firing.

Skynet/Future Shock was pretty good but Bethesda said having to pay the royalties to make games based on The Terminator were too high so they dropped the license.

This is leading up to the "reboot" of the first Terminator movie that's being talked about, yes a lame ass "reboot". Before anyone asks, in no way shape or form will James Cameron be involved with this inevitable train wreck. I love his quote on why he doesn't want to touch the Alien franchise ever again, "too many people have peed in the soup". I'm sure he feels the same way about The Terminator.

Arnold is just too damn old and replacing him with someone else is just wrong on so many levels. Fun trivia fact, O.J. Simpson was originally going to be offered the part of playing the terminator, Orion wanted Simpson but Jim Cameron persuaded the studio to go with Arnold.

What else do you do in the game? I mean it looks good but if it's just deathmatch against stompy mechs and grunts that'll get old pretty quick.

But it's illegal! I'm sure they wont put illegal stuff in such an AAA top selling game!

it was shown as medical marijuana in the game clip, they should use it in place of health kits.

I would take the plunge with this title if EA could promise that they would have a handle on the hacking but I know that can't be promised and the rampant hacking in BF3 ruined that game.
Is there a single player campaign for BF4? I'm one of the few that actually want a sp campaign. I thought the campaign for BF3 was pretty good.

Single player is in and they've dedicated a sizable portion of resources in making it more cinematic, co-op got the axe which I actually enjoyed a little bit but on the PC it sucked because you couldn't VOIP with random people.

They haven't detailed out multiplayer game modes, conquest, rush and team deathmatch are a given but no mention of CTF or some of the other oddball game modes that were in some of the BF3 expansions.

You're doubling up on paying for DLC packs twice by preordering if you intend on getting BF4 premium, just like they did for Karkand expansion for BF3.
