I actually really like BF3, I still play it and I also bought premium and never once regretted it. BF4 looks bad ass and I mean if you go to gamestop and put at least 5 dollars down on a BF4 preorder, you also get BF4 premium edition.

I regretted premium. I could have just bought Armored Kill and Back to Karkand and been happy.
#152 to #79 - anon (04/11/2013) [-]
But there's no point in getting bf4, and that's the thing that's really supposed to bother you.

They're trying to pull a call of duty, without actually including a good single player campaign or anything new in general.

Yes, pretty much. I had swear a screw in my table went loose when the theme for BF4 played when I saw the trailer.

No way man, we get 5 NEW CAMOS (one per 5 randomly selected guns out of 50, so of the 10% chance the gun you wanted gets selected, there's an 80% chance it will be a camo you didn't want, assuming you wanted any of them, considering they're all **** anyway).

$120 well spent, take that Arma III.
#114 to #27 - anon (04/11/2013) [-]
To be fair, it runs on Frostbite III, whereas BF3 runs on Frostbite II.
User avatar #122 to #114 - rohze (04/11/2013) [-]
I'm not even joking when I say that BF4 looked exactly the same as BF3. Especially the knife takedowns and Russian models being directly ripped from BF3.

I don't get how people said MW3 was the same as MW2. I played the effing **** out of 2, and found 3 to be so different and stupid I just couldn't play it much at all.

Same for BO 1 and 2. Yeah, they're on the same engine and **** , but the feel of the gameplay changes a lot. That isn't the case with Battlefield. Apart from being able to sprint diagonally and having some smoother animations, BF3 was just like BFBC2. BF4 looks like just another DLC for BF3, except that it adds some more sun glare / lens flare and a more modern look to the whole shebang.
User avatar #64 to #35 - coolcalx (04/11/2013) [-]
what didn't you like about MW3, as opposed to MW2?
I actually preferred 3 to 2
User avatar #169 to #64 - sniffythebird (04/11/2013) [-]
What rohze said + how the perks, classes, guns + attachments work. I just felt MW3 was more unbalanced than MW2, every kind of class setup just felt weird. Yeah, MW2 had one many army noobtubes and commando, but then the worst gametype was to play ground war, which is not what you should do in MW2. Free for all in MW2 was near flawless except for boosters (which I actually kinda liked, because it was fun hunting them down), or people getting lucky with killstreaks.
User avatar #177 to #169 - coolcalx (04/11/2013) [-]
how was 3 more unbalanced than 2?

2 was awful because of all the noobtubes (which you mentioned) and mostly the UMP being way overpowered, which they fixed in 3.

also, I love how I'm getting thumbed down for asking a question, and then making an obviously subjective statement.
User avatar #121 to #64 - rohze (04/11/2013) [-]
For me as a PC gamer it was the hit reg, mouse acceleration, and the horrible ******* graphics. I don't mean to be a graphics whore but it was probably the ugliest game I have ever played and coupled with the terrible reg, it was just bad. At least in my opinion.
User avatar #178 to #121 - coolcalx (04/11/2013) [-]
I have it for the PS3, so none of that is applicable to me.
the graphics (on the PS3) are much better on 3 than on 2, and the hit registration worked fine on the PSN servers.

this is probably why I liked it and you didn't.

I've never played the PC version, but can you not change the mouse acceleration? I've been able to do that on literally every PC game I've ever played.
User avatar #186 to #178 - rohze (04/12/2013) [-]
No it was a very bad console port and didn't even have dedicated servers. The reason for the bad hit reg is that as a PC gamer we're used to server side hit reg inside of client side/host. There were a few 3rd party mouse accel fixes I believe but they didn't work 100% of the time.
User avatar #189 to #186 - coolcalx (04/12/2013) [-]
does BF3 have the same server problem?
User avatar #193 to #189 - rohze (04/12/2013) [-]
No, but BF3 does have an issue with its server-side + client-side hybrid netcode. It really doesn't work well at all but almost all of the Battlefield games since 1942 were notorious for having atrocious hit reg problems and over-all general network issues. BF3 does technically have dedicated servers but mod tools were never released (which is a huge no no to do with PC shooters) and you could only get "EA" ones which are servers that EA has approved of, which is okay but doesn't allow for a large selection of providers.
#194 to #193 - coolcalx (04/13/2013) [-]
"all of the Battlefield games since 1942"

you have no idea how confused I was when I read this. I was trying to figure out how video games existed in 1942.

As a matter of fact it's not different from CoD. EA saw that they could turn BF series into a cowmilk like the CoD franchise. After BF:BC2 they realize they could just **** out a spray and pray fps game that could appeal to most CoD players. That is why BF3 became CoD with better graphics and that's why BF4 will be BF3 with new maps, vehicles and guns, basically a 60 dollar DLC.

One of my all time favorite fps. The only problems I have ever had with it was spawn camping, how similar it was to bad company and now dead servers.    
   
I hope they bring back the at4 and m95 though.

I need to look into Battlefield 4 more before I get it. I got BF3 about five months after it came out. But the only games I'm really looking forward to this year are Injustice and GTA V.
User avatar #136 to #127 - improbablyyourdad ONLINE (04/11/2013) [-]
Have you seen the 17 minute video for battlefield 4? It looks good and actually gave me a feel/got my heart going although it felt like some of the stuff that happened shouldn't of.
I played the injustice demo and got bored extremely fast, I would just wait for gta, its almost guaranteed to be good.
User avatar #138 to #136 - ninjastarthrow (04/11/2013) [-]
I saw Battlefield 3 with more camera glare and dubstep...

I like fighting games and the Mortal Kombat remake by Netherrealm studios was great so I expect the same from Injustice.

I was really disappointed with GTA IV, it was too dark and gritty while San Andreas was goofy and racy. And the lack of jets made me cry. GTA V is the game I'm most excited for this year. I have about one a year.
User avatar #182 to #138 - improbablyyourdad ONLINE (04/11/2013) [-]
When did you hear dubstep? I just watched it again and didn't hear any.


I don't see how it being dark a bad thing, it still had humor in it.
Can you define gritty?

I'm hoping that their denial is just a cover up, might be a long shot, but a nerd can dream. I think it would be awesome, especially if those games were added to the workshop.

I believe DICE writes the storyline and develops the game, not EA. I also believe that if you judge a game soley on it's owner without even playing it, then you need to get out.

"It looks the same as battlefield 3 with different guns and graphics"
Battlefield 3 was pretty bad ass, and DICE didn't need to change much to make it better. Just a few tweaks here and there. I for one am looking forward to the new game.

#139 to #53 - anon (04/11/2013) [-]
It is the publishers that make the deadline, thus the development cycle, and fund the entire project. They can force the developers' hand in many cases, because the developers have no other alternative. EA just tries to get a slice of the cake by publishing games that come out several times through sequels; the Battlefield franchise, Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3, Dragon Age: Origins, II and III, FIFA and so forth. Of course it is the publishers' intent to earn money, but EA doesn't care and is indifferent to the game studios that they destroy along the way by downgrading their products through short development cycles, forced (day-1) DLC and desperate profit-making.

User avatar #161 to #53 - Cloudlessewe (04/11/2013) [-]
BF 3's multiplayer was amazing. The SP campaign on the other hand... not so much. If BF4 is released with a more gripping campaign, and a multiplayer with the same style but with TONS of new features, i think it could turn out to be a pretty good game.
User avatar #78 to #53 - TheSock (04/11/2013) [-]
Thank You! I personally really like EA, dead space and battlefield are 2 of my favorite series, and it makes me mad when people see EA and wont even try the game, or instantly **** on it. I just dont see the point in getting all mad at a company, just my opinion anyway..and as long as DICE is making it, any battlefield game will be kickass
User avatar #73 to #53 - ronyx ONLINE (04/11/2013) [-]
Not sure what you mean about the "storyline" DICE sucks ass writing a good SP campaign, leave that to Bioware. FYI publishers have a huge impact on what goes into the game and what doesn't since they're the ones injecting money into the game. Thus a lot of things get changed and a lot of features get dropped as to maximize profits, this is coming from an interview from a publisher.

User avatar #166 to #158 - CaptainWaffles (04/11/2013) [-]
Meh, it was okay. Not nearly as good as Battlefield: Bad Company 1 or 2. And it's so glitchy and broken in both the single and coop modes. The multiplayer was good until they started releasing expansions and "tweaking" the balancing which inevitably threw the balance out the window altogether. At least with BFBC2, the only main issues were health, aim, and damage modders. Now it's that same group, plus a sorry puddle of broken game.

Hey people at EA, instead of acting like butthurt 12 year olds and complaining because you got your 2nd WCIA award, maybe you should actually listen to what your ******* customers are trying to tell you.

All this post told me was "Hey guys, we couldn't give a **** if your mad about Dragon Age 2, Dead Space, Mass Effect 3, Sim City, DRM, or microtransactions because we're gonna make a ******** of money off battlefield 4 (unless our servers crash in the first week the game is out, but honestly, when has that ever happend?)."

Instead of acting like mature adults, they're acting like petty children who get picked last for kickball

Maybe they just acknowledged the fact that no matter what, the gaming community is going to treat them worse than any other company because they're the latest hate bandwagon.
User avatar #32 to #21 - europeanswallow (04/11/2013) [-]
Yeah, but instead of acting like brats, they could acknowledge the legitimate concerns people have with the company. I don't agree with the "Worst Company in America" status necessarily but clearly people are pissed that they're rushing games and just trying to make a quick buck.

I agree that they don't deserve a lot of the flak there getting (Mass Effect 3 was a great game until the ending and won a lot of Game of the Year awards), but they should still talk about their problems and how they intend to solve them instead of just being dicks
User avatar #183 to #32 - RyanTheLeet (04/11/2013) [-]
I agree fully that EA can be doing a lot better, but I just feel that the community can let up a little bit. Like you said, Mass Effect 3 was a great game up until the end, but everyone is so quick to damn the entire game. They eventually released the Extended Cut to improve the ending like everyone wanted and for free, but EA was still a money grubbing evil company in everyone's eyes. I'm just saying we are constantly beating a dead horse and believing that will make it suddenly alive again.

Jesus this post completely sums up the rant I just went on. Worst company in America because people are unhappy with their games. Don't get me wrong it's completely fine to dislike them for money grubbing but seriously there are companies out there (named in that post e.g. ExxonMobil, Bank of America, etc...) that have completely ****** us over. I would applaud EA if that was real because it's so true and it would show some serious balls.

as for EA games, I agree there's barely anything new in any of them, but alot of the ones I've played haven't been terrible and then you also take into account they are apublisher at the end of the day, they don't actually make the games so that means we're blaming them for someone else's shoddy design and writing decisions
