There's a lot of interesting stuff on here, I'm pretty hyped myself. That voice acting though - ugh. I really hope they have a higher quality in the actual game.
"Pay for it in blood"... so bad it made me cringe.
I also miss the sheer amount of dialogs with strangers in the original game, it added a great deal of immersion and intrigue to the world. It looks like they've taken more of an action route from what I've seen on the other trailers.
I think the difference here is that those are single player games (which I loved, and yes, I too tolerated DS3 - purely for cannon purposes though).
BF games and their notorious issues with game stopping/ online bugs in every iteration has repeatedly shown a pretty shitty track record. Combine that with this DLC nonsense - abhorrent patches and hinkey (hinky?) netcode. I'm pretty much done with them.
I'm part of the 'sick of being shot around corners club' as well.
The thing I hear most about this game is what I suspected when it first came out. That is, no matter how interesting it seemed when released, there didn't seem like enough variety to warrant a full $60 game.
I think I confirmed this for myself when I played the "2 day time-release" version - I didn't see a reason to buy the thing.
Also given how appreciative the playerbase was to have a sudden influx of players I got the idea that the audience was waning. Normally veterans of a game bitch about noobs and this and that, but everyone I spoke to in lobbies and games were really nice.
Its a sad state of affairs (or the internet?) when respect is indicative of low game population.
Not really impressed with the beta, especially because it has all the 'netcode hallmarks' of the BF games; Getting shot around corners, etc. It was fun for a few hours but not really worth $15 let alone $60. This will be a full game? not really much variety.
Which is tragic considering how long Ive been a fan of Bungie (Pathways into Darkness, MYTH, ONI, Marathon). I also cant play FPS on a controller, and why should I when I have a mouse?
I'm really interested in this franchise but Ill be damned if I'm going to buy a new super-invasive-console to play it. I think the good news is that Bungie can really do their own thing now, they aren't bound to one platform or another.
You're grown men. Stop being petty, stop exaggerating, and stop blindly hating. I'm all for thinking Halo games suck, but I'll never say to someone at Bungie "gee, aren't you guys stupid for being one of the most successful studios of all time!"
Beamer, as we say in the DAYZ community. You have my beans sir.
