I can see clearly now MWII is gone!

After the recent wave of monumental failure [http://csnation.totalgamingnetwork.com/forums/showthread.php?t=180393] after monumental failure [http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2009/11/pc-modern-warfare-2-its-much-worse-than-you-thought.ars] (not to mention the spike up in pricing) I think anyone with half a functional brain that wants their money's worth has long since abandoned the purchase of this crap.

That said, a lot of people who did so started looking at replacements for their previous warfare-based shooter of preference. I did too. And then I stumbled across this beauty.


Be still my beating heart... This looks bigger and better than MWII ever did. I never took a good look at Battlefield games simply because... I didn't. No reason, I was just "busy" with other warfare shooters.

Thus I'm ever so glad IW decided to shoot themselves repeatedly in both feet with a shotgun, since it made me discover this.

I feel like I'm back in high school. Was enamored over a girl that wasn't that big a deal, but I had such a crush on her I couldn't look at any other. Then she became a complete *****, I saw her for what she was, and with that I discovered a much prettier and smarter girl who had been looking at me all along.

In short, anyone else kicking MWII to the curb in favor of Bad Company 2?

I'll be being both eventually. Seeing as I don't have LIVE the changes to the 360 version won't affect me. I missed out on the first Bad Company but played the demo often. BC 2 looks pretty good.

I wasn't even that interested in MWII to begin with, but BC2 has peaked my interest now. I'll probably pick it up, if my economy allows it.

To be honest, I quite likes BF:BC on xbox but something that really gets me is the perspective. There's something just wrong about the way you see your gun and how the visuals look at the prehipheral. Thus I prefer other shooters when playing for long stretches.

Being screwed out of your money isn't just pc based, i'm being asked to fork over £55 if i want to buy this which i increasingly don't, according to a conversion website thats $91. lame.

If this is for PC, and I have the money for it, I might just buy it. It looks awesome :D
While CoD in general have always looks rather... bland IMO.

Well I am so getting this game until they fix COD MW2 because they have fucked it up so so badly this game looks amazing compared to CODMW2 after they have done.

Looks great, but I hope every level isn't in the Snow. Might get a bit boring if it's just the same environment.

For me, it's the single player game that makes CoD so great. The first Bad Company had a terrible single-player experience - here's hoping they fix that.

The consoles are still being ripped off their money, it's just harder for you guys to notice anymore.

It is for PS3, Xbox360 and the PC. Unlike IW, however, DICE has reassured it's fanbase that they will not forsake them [http://blogs.battlefield.ea.com/battlefield_bad_company/archive/2009/10/26/dedicated-to-our-pc-players.aspx##].

Totally a buy for me.

Well I guess I'm buying the game then. I should have looked it up myself really but thanks anyways.

No matter how many whiney posters try to persuade me otherwise, I will buy MW2.
See, I think there's a good chance that the developers of the game knows more about building the multiplayer parts, than any random interweb whinger.

So, I'll run with it, see where it takes me:)


Also, I do have a fully functioning brain, thankyouverymuch you condescending twerp...

Just saw some MP footage and it looks really good. Theres a PS3 MP beta so i'll check that out when released. Theres plenty of time between MW2 and this for me to enjoy both.

That's what happens to PC gamers. They always get screwed. Turning my back on the PC was the best decision I've ever made.

I noticed that too... the gun seems very far to the right or something, it's a little disorienting.

Still looks like good fun though.
