MoH: Bad Guy Shooter

Online

Ugh. Does Patrick have the day off or something? Come on.

#53 Posted by ptys (1925 posts) -

Well fair enough although I think the military shooter is done and dusted, they just haven't realised yet cause those things still sell like hotcakes but I'd say the drop in sales is just around the corner.

Apparently? Come on Alex, we've known this for a while.

Big ol' ad in the BF3 box.

It can't be any worse than the multiplayer that was made by people who actually know how to make a good multiplayer shooter.

@DangerousDoctor I was just about to clarify that. You beat me to it.
Soldier refers to a member of the Army in DoD jargon. Airman for the Air Force, Sailor for the Navy, Marine for the Marine Corps.

They should use the BEARD engine for this game. If it can power Splosion Man, it can power the awesome beards of tier one dudes in Afghanistan too!

I just finished the first game and it ends with the words "this isn't the end", so yeah; a sequel seems pretty obvious.

But is it modern warfighter?

I thought that last cinematic implied that they we're hunting Bin Laden in Pakistan. That's what I though this sequel would be but since he was actually assassinated since then I don't know if they'll do it or not.

#61 Posted by evilrazer (480 posts) -

No thank you sir, I will pass on that one. I had already wasted $50 for MOH, well actually it was all about BF3 Beta...

#62 Posted by Dad_Is_A_Zombie (1225 posts) -

I thought the last MOH was OK. I'd grab this one, on the cheap.

I knew this was an Alex headline when I saw the second "apparently".

I would imagine now that it happened they would be even more inclined to tell the story. The events in the first game were based on real-life events, why not the second?

Tier One Operator huh?

#67 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

Another modern warfare FPS. No thanks.

True. I guess they faced the same controversy of creating a war game based on very recent events with their first game. If they can pull it off well it'd be great. It'll get some time on FOX News if it gets around that you actually hunt and kill Osama Bid Laden in the game.

So this is the prequel to Advanced Warfighter, right?

I thought the controversy stemmed from the fact that you could play as the Taliban in multiplayer? (which they changed before release)

Actually kind of excited for this-enjoyed the first one a lot more than I thought I would

Yeah, that was part of it. Creating a game about a war that is still happening or is very recent like the cancelled "6 Days in Falujjah" seems to bring on much more controversy than say a WWII or a fictional war game.

#74 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

They should have called it Doorfighter instead. Just because.

#75 Posted by TheGorilla (230 posts) -

The reboot had some mildly interesting things going for it. It wasn't a great game but I like that Danger Close is getting another shot.

#76 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

I will only play this if there is a QTE where you dump Bin Laden's body into the ocean.

#77 Posted by tourgen (4458 posts) -

Warfighter is a super dumb term. So probably a pretty good subtitle for this game.

#79 Edited by LTSmash (613 posts) -

I guess "warfighter" is one of those terms that has yet to catch on with the general public. It seems like an odd choice to name a game in which you play as an elite soldier with a term intended to be as general as possible, (from what little I've read) referring to anyone in the American military.

So people in the military fight wars? I think the next EA football game should be called Madden 13: Football Passer and maybe then they could have NASCAR: Car Driver.

#81 Edited by Hef (1110 posts) -

First Person Shooter: Shoot lots of Guns would have been more original.

#82 Posted by Seppli (10251 posts) -

I really liked 2010's Medal of Honor's Combat Mission MP mode. T'is a bit like American Football with guns. Guess that's why it's still somewhat active online. Hopefully they'll push that aspect more.

Overall - I thought it was a pretty solid package and I was well entertained for two SP playthroughs and like 40 hours of MP. Make Warfighter bigger and better and more badass - and I might just give it a shoot.

So development of the multiplayer is being handled by the same developer as the Medal of Honor single-player that was pretty much universally reviled? What could possibly go wrong?

Universally? Personally, the single-player was the most interesting bit of Medal of Honor (2010). And even then it was still a scripted corridor.

It's nice that Danger Close has another chance at making a game because I really liked some of the things in Medal of Honor (2010). I know this has little chance of coming true, but I hope they take Warfighter more in the direction of tactical simulators like the old Rainbow 6 and Ghost Recon games. I really want Danger Close to make good on their mission to deliver an "authentic" military-themed experience. Medal of Honor (2010) still felt a bit too silly at times.

Also, as Danger Close is using Frostbite 2.0, I hope they tone down all the god damn lens flare and lighting effects.

You know even Killzone 3 had an operator heavy mission that felt like it was straight out of MoH, haha. My friends and I enjoyed the campaign as well and a bit of the multiplayer. It was not universally reviled at all.

I am looking forward to what Danger Close is developing, despite the boring title. I also wonder how not using the Unreal Engine has changed the design of their game. I'm with you I would really like, specifically, Rainbow Six 3 type multiplayer again. Probably the best shooter for firearm nerds still.

Rabbit, Never Forget.

I don't get how "Warfighter" is any worse than say, "Modern Warfare".

If you need this explained to you, theres no help for you.

Anyone got the clip from that Podcast where they talked about all the dumb website regestrations for Medal of Honer, such as War Fighter. I beleve it may be another "Ill eat my hat" things

Yeah, for all the faults that game had, I appreciated the more somber tone. Hopefully now that Battlefield is out and apparently successful, EA will let Danger Close experiment with more dramatic storytelling. That was ONE thing I enjoyed about MoH 2010.

so will this 'Warfighter' be Advanced?

Generic title much?

No thanks, BF3 is what we wanted.

Disappointed that bad company 3 isn't EA's answer to the "Treyarch" years between BF3 and BF4.

I like how Alex makes things apparent, and doubly so.
 
At least DICE won't be spread thin between it and what they're working on now; be it maintaining and updating BF3, building a successor to 2142, or pitching Mirror's Edge 2 for the billionth time.
