DLC

#1 Posted by JDDrewes (269 posts) -

So any word on the DLC? I wonder what's taking them so long. It seems like it would make sense to release it before BC2 comes out, while they still dominate the online shooter market. Also, have they confirmed that it will only be a few new maps for $10?

#2 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

no, no news for what the maps are. the only news that they have is that microsoft is going to have it for a time exclusive. i think it is going to be like a month for 360 users can buy it. 
 
i think that they should release while bad company 2 is out. once people actually get the feel for bad company they can go back to modern warfare 2. they can see the problems that bad company 2 will get. some peopel bought modern warfare 2 then sold it because they didn't like it.

The DLC they will release contains 4 maps from CoD 4 which I can't remember and then another 4 maps, there are also 3 new modes I think. It's already on the disk, you'll be paying to unlock it. People have hacked it already. It won't come at once, maybe all of it will be released in 3 packs over the next year, I don't know.

They should have released it this month, I would have bought it but now it will be saved for buying BC2.

like when the game comes out there might be problems with the game. people will get pissed off about it and sell the game. 
 
the problem that modern warfare 2 had when it first came out were models being over powered, care package grenades made people run faster, care package glitches. when they see problem slike these then they might stop playing it.

@iam3green: So basically you want MW2 to fail against BC2? Or the other way around? 
#8 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -
@Pinkshley1: no, i want bad company to fail. i do not like the game all that much.
#9 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Maybe they're thinking that if they release DLC a month after BC2, by then people may be a bit bored of BC2 and want something else new again, so they can release DLC to get people back to wanting to play MW2?  I dunno.

Even though the demo is far superior over MW2 full game?

Well, they confirmed that the first map pack was coming out in Spring a long time ago. But still, they really should focus on fixing the issues before they worry about adding anything else.

from fourzerotwo's twitter on the 25th :
  Lots of #MW2 DLC related meetings today, which is a good thing. Means we're oh so close to nailing down a date and locking down details!!

From what i've played in the demo BC2 sucks compared to MW2.  i don't get all these people claiming MW2 is shitty and BC2 is gonna be awesome... the demo was horrible and very easy.  not fun at all

Gonna guess you've never played a BF game?
 
MW2 is fucking garbage, it has a bullshit levelling system, crap guns, and is nothing but run-n-gun game. There's absolutely no strategy or teamwork, and it's just...horrible.
#17 Posted by JDDrewes (269 posts) -

I'm not exactly sure how this turned into a MW2 vs. BC2 thread but ok..... 
They're 2 different games. Battlefield has always been more tactical and Call of Duty has always been run and gun. Sure, there's not as much strategy in MW2, but it doesn't really set out to be a strategy game. It's over the top, ridiculous, but you know what? it's hella fun. Are there squads? no. are there spawn points to capture? no. are there vehicles? no. but MW2 doesn't try to be that game. it's a run-n-gun, and there's nothing wrong with that. it's like complaining that GTA4 had too much story or that Geometry Wars had too many shapes.  
BC2 will probably be great in it's own ways. the last real battlefield game i played was BF2, and i have many fond memories of that game. From playing the demo of BC2 it seems like that actual shooting mechanics aren't as good as MW2, but the gameplay seems much more tactical and strategic. There's nothing wrong with that, that's just what it is. A good, tactical, shooter.

Both games are awesome. People should also probably stop stating opinion as fact but I guess the internet wouldn't be the same without that.

Dont forget the Javelin glitch.  At one point the most feared player was the one running straight at you with a Javelin.  *shivers*

Yo dawgs.  No need to hate on each others shooters.  Each one satisfies a different taste of shooter.  Modern Warfare is more Artsy Fartsy and Bad Company is more Mamsy Pamsy.

Wanting a game to fail because you don't like it is just pathetic.

@Bucketdeth:
Have you even played MW2 or BC2 demo at all. I seriously doubt you have played either of them.
