And here the ugly truth is revealed: despite CoD lacking innovation and rehashing the same game modes each year, it is so much more player-friendly than Battlefield. The idea that you can buy upgrades without having to play is horrible. Call of Duty may be tired to some, but it at least has retained its integrity by never implementing Pay-2-Win/Unlock rubbish.

A strange day when Call of Duty has the moral high ground.

Yep, if by skill you mean "hosting the game" .. because that's the fucking "win" button....
Oh yeah? How many hours have you played the game? Did you not win matches where you weren't the host?

Sorry to call you out again...but I highly doubt you have actual experience with losing because you weren't the host in Advanced Warfare. It just isn't a big deal right now with 20k+ players. It is incredibly easy to get into games where you have less than 100 ping and no packet loss. No excuses.

Yep. What a stupid, pointless discussion. The scene isn't meant to make you feel. You are *paying respects*. You aren't supposed to cry. Moveover, this wasn't a QTE. It was a *button prompt*. There is a difference.

Sigh...all these haters and whiners...the funeral scene happens 30 minutes into the game as an *introduction* to the real story...Sledgehammer wasn't trying to make you cry...I shouldn't even engage these lame journalists.

Badly written headline, but good for comedic value. It made me wonder why the game getting released in Poland warranted its own story.
Same here...ah, the English language. The powers that be need to change the word to paulish or something!

Anyway. I played MP last night for several hours. I was BLOWN AWAY. No joke. It was totally amazing and so much fun. Haters will hate, but this isn't just a rehashed CoD. This is what Titanfall should have been.

So yeah, huge credit to Sledgehammer. If you want a very fast, very skillful FPS, I'm declaring AW as king. And please, before you hate, actually play the MP for yourself for at least an hour.

Being a huge fan of the Bioware bygone days, I was actually tempted to preorder. I even opened Origin and viewed the store page.

Then reality set in: greedy DLC deluxe exclusive garbage. Right on the page is a chart telling you what YOU DON'T GET when you buy their game.

Want to give us our asking price of $60? Thanks, but you're a loser and don't get a bunch of fun stuff. Want everything? Then pay $70, idiot.

I cannot support this type of garbage marketing practices. Anyway, here's hoping the game doesn't 'feature' built-in DLC quest givers like DA:O...

Well Blue, not to be that guy...but it honestly is a shocker because previously Activision made it *very clear* that the Zombies mode was exclusive to Treyarch-developed Call of Duty games. And technically Treyarch has made less than 50% of Call of Duty games, so Zombies mode has only been in less than half the Call of Duty games.

I REALLY don't get this. I mean WHY have you not released all the info about your new game (excluding sp spoilers) by now?
Yeah, I agree with you. This makes no sense. I find it hard to believe they wanted to keep it a secret just so players could be overjoyed upon starting the game the first time. Maybe I'm too cynical, but hiding this makes me think it is some half-baked mode with barely any content...and only after DLC will it really be worth playing.

I have to give major respect and kudos to Valve's creative team for consistently coming up with funny and beautiful art for these type of events. Granted, I don't care for TF2. Granted, perhaps Valve's amazing skills could be put to use on new games not based on 2004 tech. Still...that Comic was hilarious.

It can't be a worse port than FFX13

I seem to recall a few people defended that port, that's the sad thing.
I don't recall anyone defending the FFXIII port. Defending the game, yes. Defending only 720p? Nope. So not sure what you are talking about...that being said, Durante's fix makes FFXIII perfectly playable at 1080p or higher, so that's good.

...although now that you mention it, FFXIII's port wasn't the worst. I'd argue other ports were much worse...ports that have issues that can never be fixed, ever, like crashing bugs.

So in a sense, I do think people take 720p more seriously than they should. Dark Souls at 720p or FFXIII at 720p were/are both perfectly playable with almost zero bugs. It's the broken coding/crashes that truly ruin a port (Saints Row 2 would be an excellent example, also Deadly Premonition).

Anyway, great to see Valkyria Chronicles coming to PC. I never played it but heard it is fantastic.

Literally 2 minutes ago I was thinking I wish this game had a demo like Civ 5 had. So good times! I appreciate any dev that lets people try the game without having to, um, acquire it other ways just to try it.

This game is looking really good, haters be danged! Over the years the quintessential competitive FPS has gone from Doom 2, Quake 2, CS 1.6, CoD:MW, and Cod:MW3. CoD:AW looks to be the next in line.

I don't care what the haters say. MW3 and AW, both by Sledgehammer, are expertly crafted, high quality shooters. I just can't hate on any game that is expertly crafted and delivers exactly what it promises.

So anyway, my Doom/Quake tournament wins and real-life trophies give me the "street cred" to say CoD:AW is looking real legit. So stop hating on such a well-made FPS.

But does it have advanced next gen fish AI?
New material please. It is far too easy to mock something than to think about it rationally. Infinity Ward's Rubin made foolish comments, and his talk about Ghosts was mostly PR lies. It isn't exactly fair or logical or bring up old jokes about another game made by another developer.

Sledgehammer it seems is actually trying to innovate and deliver the best SP and MP experience so far in CoD. If you don't like CoD then fair enough. But so far Advanced Warfare does seem like an actual evolution of FPS gaming rather than rehash of the same old CoD.

Anyway, I just think each developer should be judged by their own work...not mocked for another studio's bad game. I'm sure everyone will agree politely and engage in enlightened discussion.

Indeed, sometimes positions can not be negotiated to a compromise if they are so fundamentally opposed. In the end it's a fact that like anything that can be consumed as media the resulting opinions will be as numerous as there were viewers...
I have sort of enjoyed being the one defending a game for a change. I'm usually on the other end. I suppose I just have a soft-spot for Square JRPGs. Granted they pretty much all are absurd.

You might be taking them a bit too seriously if you're hating on poor Chocobo-chick in Sazh's afro. Pretty much all JRPGs are full of absurd nonsense to a degree. Even the sacred FFVI's of the world.

In the end, I paid $10 for FFXIII on PS3 and despite finding it tedious and absurd on many levels, I chose to let myself enjoy the game for what it was. At least we can agree that the game had some incredibly amazing graphics!

I am not mad at *you* I just have a very low opinion of FFX13
Well...I liked the story very much. I'm normally the one to tear a story apart, but FFXIII's story made a lot of sense to me.

As to what happened at the end of the game...FFXIII-2 makes that quite clear. There are larger powers at play than even the fal'Cie. You can dislike that if you want, but the story wasn't just cobbled together. It was methodically told over the entire trilogy. Again, you can dislike the premise, but FFXIII's writing itself is very strong.

And to those who say Lightning doesn't have emotion...yes she does. She gets real angry and is fueled by bitter revenge. There are real people who do the same thing. And her character changes over time...even over the trilogy. Hence, I found her interesting.

When I consider Cloud, Squall, Vaan, and other leads, Lightning easily bests them all when it comes to relatability IMO.

But we obviously agree to disagree.

This is strong and pure JRPG to you?
...if you read my post again, you'd see I said FFXIII-2 is a fun and pure JRPG. FFXIII-2. A DIFFERENT GAME. I think you let your rage consume you...at the risk of making you explode again, did you play FFXIII-2? I'm guessing you didn't. So to put it your way...READING!

Anyway...the point is Snow *is* careless. That is his personality. And that story arc is well-developed. Remember how Snow is confronted by Hope? Hope is bitter and blames Snow. Remember that? The point is this is all realistic storytelling. Careless people. Blind optimism leading to trouble. And Snow and Hope both have very excellent voice actors making those scenes even better.

And if you don't even realize FF13 *is* about how characters respond to tragedy, then you really weren't paying attention and didn't understand the story at all.

And if you don't understand why the l'Cie tried to fight their fate instead of giving up (and turning Cieth)...then you once again fail to comprehend the story. The story is about responding to tragedy and deciding to fight against tyranny (the Fal'Cie) even if you don't know if you can win. I won't say more to avoid spoilers.

So just to drive you even more mad, I will once again reaffirm FF13 as a very strong story with interesting characters. The fact that I can talk about each one in such detail is a testament to how well-developed they are. They aren't stereotypes.

And dangit, I'm glad to have a game with a brooding female lead! Most female leads are all optimistic and upbeat. Lightning is different and interesting to me and millions of others.

By far the most boring Final Fantasy game. Unlikeable characters, unrelatable story, badly paced, combat system has no real depth and the shell of a post game they threw in is the highlight. This was a really bad game with good production values.

People tell me 13-2 is better but I can't bring myself to play it after this utter disappointment.
So sad! I'd like to encourage you to give the games a second chance. I really resonated with the characters and found 13 to deliver some excellent character moments and emotional scenes.

To each their own I suppose, but 13 had realistic, strong characters IMO. It is one of the few JRPGs to actually develop characters...something games like FF10 didn't even attempt.

So I don't know...I think it is good to foster the ability to see and appreciate the good things even in flawed games. 13 was tedious for sure, but to say it had bad characters...I don't think that holds up if you objectively study the script. They all have reasonable motives and behave realistically. Plus they are expertly animated as expected from Square.

13 is sort of a case study on how people react when their lives are torn apart, and that is a great premise rarely seen in RPGs. I think many just quit after the first very tedious opening hours and never got a chance to get to know the characters.

And yes FF13-2, gameplay-wise, is SO VASTLY SUPERIOR. FF13-2 is one of the purest, most fun JRPGs you can play. They removed pretty much all the tedium of 13.

Hard to believe current gen consoles dont get this. What's up?
It would be interesting to know the business reason why 2k isn't bringing it to next-gen. I can speculate two reasons.

1) 90% of the player base is still on prior gen, so going next-gen would only be a minor sales boost.

2) The game is clearly built on prior-gen tech and would get slammed by critics for being low-fi, thereby damaging the Borderlands brand.

Combining the two points, perhaps they just don't want to take the risk on next-gen?

Destructoid gave it a 6/10. Said it was OK, but just that. So yeah, you might want to hold off from a day one buy.
My problem with the Destructoid review is it never properly explains how the game is "boring" and "repetitive" beyond saying fighting Orcs is the same each time. Well, fighting enemies in Batman was the same, too, but it was always enjoyable because of new tricks, new scenery, and smart combat. All three seem to also play into this game, too.

As the saying goes, only boring people are bored.

Destiny is a truly repetitive game because you literally replay the exact same content over and over. Yet strangely, the same reviewer gave Destiny a 6.5 and didn't even mention it being repetitive.

It sounds like Shadow of Mordor offers a lot to see and do, on the other hand. Plus it offers very solid and unique mechanics, unlike Destiny again.

Point is, I don't trust Destructoid reviews.

They totally deserve the success. The Forsaken Masters expansion is an awesome addition to an already innovative and unique game. I've said it before but I'll say it again: Path of Exile is not only the true successor to Diablo 2 but it actually is far superior to even Diablo 2 in so many ways.

I highly recommend you play 13-2 despite your concerns. 13-2 is an amazing game that is so entirely different than XIII. It is kind of amazing to think the exact same group of developers made both.

Anyway, 13-2 has much improved combat, fun monster collection, non-linear exploration, crazy time travel hijinks (think Chrono Trigger), and just lots of fun stuff. 13-2 grabbed me and wouldn't let me go until 80 hours later and a Platinum trophy. 13-2 is the quintessential JRPG experience IMO, as opposed to XIII, which I did enjoy for the characters and story but hated the super-tedious levels and battles.

I've recently started Lightning Returns...so far...it is total wack and I can't get into it. I hope it improves. Once again, hard to believe the same exact dev made such a bizarre game after doing so well on 13-2!
