i am interested in the story for this. i like how you just follow these guys around and you can see them changing physically and probably mentally

although i am disappointed they already spoilt how they will look near the end of the game :\

I wonder if they've used enough bloom.

At least we get to play marines/mercenaries this time. Seems like the game industry is getting some creativity back.

One of the very few new IPs of 2012. I really hope this marriages gameplay and storytelling and throws all our expectations out the window. A war game hasn't emotionally fucked me up since Brothers in Arms.

Or then, Matt Williams (the writer) has to eat a lot of crow.

I hope they get to story right. If it fails to deliver I have a feeling the whole game will have lost it's appeal.

Gameplay looks a bit jenky. An impactfull military shooter sounds great on paper. But the last game to promis such a thing turned out to be laughably bad (homefront)

I predict a shallow, dude-bro, throw-away story, unlikable characters, and mediocre gunplay. I'll be shocked if it actually delivers on any of its promises. We'll see i guess... I think we can all agree it will bomb sales wise tho.

Release this already, i dont want it but just annoyed about how early publishers announce some of their games.

I quite agree. I was just thinking there has been a real lack of soldier games of late. The only think that could improve this would be if they added space marines to it and set it all to a hip hop soundtrack by DJ ice box.

I'm 99% sure this will be a mediocre game. A generic TPS in a dessert setting. Gameplay and controls look very jerky to me.

game looked WAY WAYYY better back when it was first shown (it used a different engine as well)

now it looks like complete crap

    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Yea, i hate to say it but in maybe skipping out on this. BF4 has it's flaws but it seems I'll stick with it till it dies. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The lack of variety w/ vehicles is an issue too.. especially aircraft. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I have a feeling BF4 will be around for a while.. unless the UI change hurts it. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: They know a lot of people don't like it.. hell it was a question on the alpha survey. The vehicle spawns and the motive behind that seems flawed to me too. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't actually mind it much.. SMGs have pretty rough range.. but I don't find it that restrictive. The changes to conquest and the vehicle spawns both really bug me tho. (5 Hours ago)
