I like a spectrum of games (Bioshock, Civ, Total War, Terraria, Assassin's Creed) and CoD is among them. Yes they're repetitive year to year, which is why I only pick them up every few years, but I do enjoy them when I do. So if you don't like them, don't buy them. Not sure why people are so obsessed with hating on it. So what if people like it.

Here's me playing it for 50 minutes.
That actually looked like a bit of fun. Still on the fence, but thank you for sharing that!

Sadly, one still has to pay €20,- for Arma II + expansions. Simply too much for a mod I'm not sure I'll enjoy :\ Besides, an enhanced stand-alone Day Z is in the making -- it can be releases any time now.. no?
Kegaro wrote on Feb 20, 2013, 15:28:Actually, this is a good point. At this point, new versions of CoD or BF seem just like map packs, much of the gameplay and settings are the same. I'd really like to see them go back again to WWII with the graphics/tech they have today or to a future setting. Modern warfare is getting old and rehashy imo.
I for one have had just about enough "Modern Warfare", I'm ready for them to go back to WWII.

Make sure to have a controller, though, as obviously nobody plays first person shooters with a mouse/keyboard anymore. The guys that made Halo said so.

If they don't announce something new, it's going to continue to be a disappointment. I'm hoping to see something about Titan, but like Verno, I'm sorta MMO'd out. So it'll have to be some really good stuff.
Think this is the first year I'm not excited about blizzcon.
"The Auction House provides a way to earn gold to put toward an item you prefer. But it has some downsides. The biggest downside is that some players find it more rewarding to collect items from slain monsters or crafting."I can't believe it took them this long to say this. This is ultimately what made the game suck, especially when compared to it's predecessors or Torchlight 2 for that matter. They just had to have their precious AH and fuck it all up for those that liked to have shit just drop in-game that was useful. Ah well, too little too late.

Whenever I see stuff like this, I just shake my head and think "your loss". If you don't want to deal with a few mins of BS to spend hours playing what you think would be an excellent game for you, that's just stupid and stubborn.
I'd really like this to be good since the city building genre has been basically dead for years, but EA + origin + drm mean it's likely to keep me away even if the game is complex enough to be worth playing for more than a week.

PEGI 7??!!! Fuck that. I'm not getting a game that's made for 7 year olds. I've lost total faith in EA and Maxis now. No sale.
Not sure if trolling or not... But this means that the violence, profanity, etc is ok for 7 year olds. It doesn't mean that the game is made for 7 year olds, or that you need to be 7 to fully understand everything... Sim City was never very high on the violence and sex scale...

So forgive me if I don't throw a tantrum like half the people in this thread and grab a pitchfork. No one's willing to admit the possibility that they may patch the game to allow offline play before they take the server down. But that would be the opposite of flaming EA and isn't welcome in these parts.
If the game isn't multiplayer-only or a MMO game then it should have some form of offline play. Give us something to be able to play when the internet is having issues or when you retire the servers.
