Even if Valve had a particular release date in mind, what's the likelihood that they'd actually hit it, given their previous track record? They seem to be taking Trent Reznor's path, and over almost the same timeframe: less interested in the actual product, more interested in how the product is packaged, consumed, and sold. This isn't to say it's a bad thing, as we're going through massive upheaval in how every type of media and entertainment is distributed, and these experiments at the fringe are necessary. Digital music outsold physical last year, and boxed PC games are becoming dinosaurs. But I'd still love to hear a new NIN album that affects me as much as The Downward Spiral, and I'd love to play a Valve shooter with the solid, intelligent, seamlessly-integrated characters from, and gameplay innovations of, Half-Life 2.

Yeah Reznor's work is watered down these days. I'm a fan, but it needs to be said.

MS is going the way of Rise of Flight. A very good, polished sim that's often overlooked.

And there's rumors he has 'roid rage (someone found his email used on an account in roid forums, posting about how he had done roids before). Anything that increases rage and temper is another bad thing for PR reps.

His behavior is pretty typical of a jerk-bro-douche-moron. No need to find excuses for it.

News Comments > BF3 Famas Rifle Changes Planned
35. Re: BF3 Famas Rifle Changes Planned Dec 30, 2011, 07:12 Dmitri_M
 
Yeah I was in much the same position a few days ago on the karkland TDM map. A group of snipers were parachuting and using their...flying robot things (I've never used recon kit) to airlift themselves (FIX THAT BEFORE THE FAMAS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD) onto the central skyscraper on the map and effectively camped the entire game to pieces. I got the hell in and set about mortaring the top of the skyscraper. I never use mortar except to clear out these lazy fuckers. The mortaring set off a giant bitchfest on the part of the snipers. The items and the weapons were clearly tested by people unaccustomed to the sorts of exploits experienced fps players will devise. I imagine a designer/testing department full of gamepads, beanbags and inkjet printouts of cats.

Perhaps you didn't read the whole of my last thought: Great potential but shitty unbaked execution.

So you were expecting them to innovate beyond what they achieved with previous BF games, or perhaps not regress as they have on voip and the bottlenecked maps?

These days the best you can expect is "as good as a 10 year old game". See Dues Ex HR.

Hey, a lot of us here and billions around the globe have no denatal benefits or even access to a dentist so yeah, you are pretty lucky, Blue.

Private personal dental insurance is pretty cheap....damn near everyone should be able to afford it.

Because only 'Merica exists right?

I have found the action too intense and fun to spend so much time nitpicking the issues you mention.

I'm too busy averaging in the top 3 players on the TDM servers I frequent

Yeah they are. They're very sheltered in Australia. Did such a "great" job wiping out the aborigines that white guilt never had a chance to form. Unlike in Europe and America were it as has and people at least need to pretend not to be racist.

This sort of thing really shows up how the vanilla BF series has always been Quake with a modern warfare skin rather than any real team versus team cooperative mp.

And that's not a criticism, I love BF.

Comrose failings withstanding - support units should be spamming ammo boxes without needing to be asked. You see a group of guys gathered at corner hitting the enemy, drop a damn box. Course you won't cause you're too busy nursing your individual frag count Quit camping the red armor.

Although COH's engine was, and still is, very good..I hope this would feature something other than a campaign slapped into old tech.

Isn't that essentially what the Warhammer games were?

BF3 is pretty great but it's sorely lacking in the teamwork department due to lack of squad voip. If you can't play with friends it goes from being one of the best MP games to being absolutely terrible.

Doesn't creating a "party" in Battlelog equal squad voip? It worked for me across continents while doing the coop missions with a friend.

That only works with people already on your friends list and has to be done pre-game. If you just join a server and squad up with people you have no VOIP options at all in a PC game in the year 2011, it's kind of pathetic.

Ah. Yeah I don't think I'd ever want to voip with strangers anyhow. But I see your point.

I second the need for a Nam version, although I'm not sure they'll do it after already releasing the BC Nam expansion.
