So i've recently been playing battlefield 3 and boy this game isn't anywhere near the quality i thought it would be. my biggest gripe so far is the size of the maps and lack of destruction, i mean really it feels like the series took three steps back and i can't figure out why. the gameplay is far better than any other title in the series and the only title i can think of that is close to it is BF1943. but the god-damn size of the maps and lack of destruction gets on my nerves sometimes so friggin much, i mean really what stopped them? i can't think of any reason why we can't make buildings collapse, and i can't figure out why so many buildings that should be completely explorable are locked. when i imagined BF3 maps i thought it was bigger than BC2 and it allowed us to hide in any building and destroy any bulidng we want so that only rubble is left. the gameplay is exactly what i wanted the series to have,
I think that Caspian Border is the only map that really feels like a BF map and it's quite mediocre and graphically weak compared to the other maps, i also hate how conquest on it is always random, they should have done the "phase" thing in BC1 where after conquring one node it locks and you move on to the next. it keeps the action all in one place without making the other areas barren of life. what's the point of a large map if people are going to spend 95% of their time splitting in groups and pretending like they're in TDM. i really see what the BF3 players mean what they say that the current players aren't from the BF series at all.
The problems doesn't stop there, the jets are god-damn awful, they are nowhere near as fun and exciting as 1943 and are such a pain to level. the fact that most maps only have 2 planes on the air most of the time makes me cry as the epic dog fights that are in 1943 made the experience for me, their absence in BC bugged me as it would be like taking out tanks but leaving vehicles. i really wish that the PC version has more jets in the maps because if both console and PC versions have the same plane limit then consider me furious i won't stop myself from stealing all of DICE's employes left shoes or *gasp* steal their coffee maker, you have been warned folks. the classic moments of looking around and seeing a tank canon Staring at you is still priceless.
Oh and i would like to applaud DICE for making the console version look terrific considering the tech limitations. fantastic job guys.
It seems that Rockstar learned their lesson with GTAIV and is finally giving us a proper GTA. i frigging cannot wait for this and i damn hope that it comes out next octobor instead of sometime in 2013. SO EXCITED!!!111
Lack of Excitement for "Major" releases this month : a sign of menopause?
Wait a minute last i checked (which was just now just fyi) Im a guy and im not in my 50's (at least to my knowledge) so i don't know why menopause came to mind.
The only title this month that i am truly excited for is WWE12 and that is because im a big wrestling fan. the create-a-show and improved features like being able to injure a star and put them out of the game, the improved WWE Universe mode which generates unlimited random maps is so damn exciting. last year SvR11's universe mode lasted me 5 months, which is more bang for my buck than any other game i've tried. the only thing that got boring is the gameplay which they're fixing this year and now looks fantastic.
I would like to mention also that THQ's treatment of their fans recently is fantastic and better than any other company out there, and their DLC pricing puts other companies to shame too. you can get all DLC for 800 ms points or buy each indivdual wrestler for 80 ms, 80 MS!! that is the price of an icon on the xbox live market. that is the kind of pricing that other companies would never dare to use, EA would have charged us 400 MS for each wrestler and 1200 ms just for one pack. i think THQ is a great company that other companies should strive to be like because it's only a matter of time before DLC dies down after EA raises the prices too much.
Yeah anyway back to topic, I both find myself unable to get excited for Skyrim or any other big title launching. i plan on picking it and the others up but i don't feel like as anxious as i am for WWE12. i don't know honestly if im the only one who feels that way but i felt like mentioning it.
