Ships Ahoy - Medal of Honor

EA announces the release of Medal of Honor, the new installment in the military shooter series that takes it from World War II into a present day setting. Here's word:

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS), today announced that Medal of Honor™ is now available at retail stores in North America. Co-developed by EA’s Danger Close™ Studio in Los Angeles and DICE in Stockholm, Medal of Honor heralds the return of EA’s storied first person shooter franchise with award-winning multiplayer combat and stunningly authentic single-player incursions. Set in today’s real-world war zone and inspired by actual missions in Afghanistan, Medal of Honor was developed with unprecedented access to the U.S. Army as well as active and retired Tier 1 Operators. The game brings a new level of authenticity to interactivity, inspired by soldiers’ stories from the war in Afghanistan, which the NY Times Magazine calls, “…transgressively real.”

Muahuahua... that teleport hack looks like the most evil thing I've seen in an online game! Transporting the entire opposing team?

Might be even more nefarious if you could transport them into a middle of a fire.
I believe you could transport them out of the map.
Anyways I am back to play some BC2 and MW2 instead of Medal of Honor, pretty disappointed. I was really looking forward to this game.

I really would love to be able to have a sit down with the EA exec who green-lighted this project.

I'd like to see the accounting spreadsheet on where all the money went, because you know they blew a HUGE wad on this little project. Urk

*Local dedicated servers
*Full game COOP
*Full editor
*Offline bots for those that like human vs bot modes to practice

This seems like they are not even on even footing with COD, and look to be certainly blow out of the water by Black Ops.

Why are publishers still releasing games on different dates in different regions? I saw this article and thought "great, I'll start downloading it" only to find it's not released here for another two days. It's just another excuse to push people on the fence towards piracy and is unnecessary in an era when such a high percentage of sales come from digital distribution.

It has nothing to do with piracy.
it's just the way deliveries and sales dates work in different countries. In some it's Friday. In others it's Tuesday.

This is one of those games where single and multi are done by separate teams using separate engines. I never fully trust that.

Plus, DICE. I know many here love DICE. I've still hated everything they've done other than the original Battlefield. God I hate not being in a vehicle in their engines.

You and me, I've hated everything DICE has done for the PC since BF2. And the game, both SP and MP, is getting really average reviews all across the board, nobody seems to find a redeeming factor in yet another derivative game.

Yep, DICE needs to stick with what they do best. Vehicular combat. BFV was crap, BF2142 was too infantry heavy, and BFBC2 just doesn't have enough vehicles. Where the hell is the modern version of Aberdeen? BF2 had a good blend of vehicles and infantry, but the Desert Combat mod was mostly better than what BF2 was.

I agree that Conquest in 2142 does have an infantry focus on some maps, that is why I play Titan mode pretty much exclusively when playing 2142. Its great and I hope they make some type of conquest/objective hybrid in BF3 as well. For those who haven't played it or given it some time its probably the best BF mode IMO.

That teleport hack is the most ridiculous shit I've ever seen. Why do people still give money to DICE when they're this fucking incompetent at preventing this sort of bullshit?

Meanwhile BC2 now will probably not be patched for a long, long time because DICE is now working on several projects, meanwhile PC server admins are happy to pay exorbitant prices to rent servers they barely can control and that crash in a daily basis and whose rent money goes to EA.

DICE has become the latest developer inside the clowncar that is most mainstream developers. That they are trying to pull shit like trying to sell MoH as a great competitive game to be used in e-sports is laughable and sad at the same time.

You'll never find "tier 1" operators wearing baseball caps on missions. Maybe around a FOB, but never on an active mission.

MD

You're partially right. They more than likely wouldn't wear anything at all... a baseball cap out in the middle of an Afghani village would make them stand out, but most of the time their missions dictate that they blend in with the locals, so they wouldn't go in wearing full battle rattle.

It's not got enough bling bling for the 12 to 14 year olds, no eminem or fiddy cent and you can't add trinkets or stickers to your guns.

I don't even really get what this means.

If what people are saying is true about the teleport hack still in operation, I'll take 'bling bling' any day of the week over having someone teleport myself along with my entire team out of bounds, up in the air, or right in front of their AA gun.

That is just unacceptable in a modern FPS, to have a game engine that vulnerable to client side feedback on player positioning. And this didn't happen as an oversight right at release. This is going on now, with more and more videos appearing on YouTube.

Yeah there we go, bash Black Ops before it even comes out. I'm sure you know how much fun customization will really be. And you can add trinkets to your guns in this game. Too much ignance around these parts.
