Re-releasing old classics, useless DLCs, casual games... they make a ton of money with that pretty easily. So why invest millions in big budget games anymore?

I don't know about you but I like investing time for a game, getting to know how it works and getting better at it. Especially in multiplayer games. I'll try the PS3 demo of this new BF game and it might be fun for a few hours but I don't think it can motivate me for more than that. It simply lacks depth...
I understand where you are coming from but it still can have a ton of depth with being easy and accessible. There are plenty of games that are easy to get into and difficult to master (God of War being one). I do fear that many developers will take advantage of DLC and see it as an easy cash cow providing us then with half assed games. I don't mind it with games like this since the game itself doesn't cost much and if its fun its at a great price.

I like both type of games, I want a game I can jump in quickly and play on days I work late and days im off I don't mind sitting down to a game that requires slow and thoughtful gameplay. It's like JRPGs and MMOs for me, I can't play them anymore because I simply just don't have the time, I love them but they demand too much time.

The thing thats pissing me off, is that you go off bitching and moaning about every game without even trying to look past something that you might see as a flaw to see if you would have fun with it first. I mean I saw your comments in the CoJ thread, you bitched about it feeling "consolized" and now after a good amount of time are enjoying it more. Thankfully you have the patience to give the game sometime and not miss out on a great game... imagine how many don't do that and pass it off as a "consolized crappy port".

In short, alot of people are becoming to hardheaded in regards to games, rather then giving a game a chance they shove it off from what they hear about the game rather then experiance.

(wow long rant there, sorry)

Auto heal and unlimited ammo has little to do with realism, they're just pussy ass game mechanics.

Auto heal is one of the best inventiones ever for shooters, I don't care what anyone says.

Anyway, tried the PS3 demo... pretty impressive. Looks identical to the 360 game, neither has AA but both look good for download titles.

If it was my kind of game I would buy it... seems really smooth and polished.

Agreed on regenerating health. It just makes it funner to play not having to run around looking for med kits to heal yourself, like that is real :\. "Hai giz, i gut sht n mah i, got a madkat 2 hele me ^?"

I have to say it translated sort of ok but it seems needlessly dumbed down. Classes gone and the player count also sticks out as it seems kind of barren compared to the BF many of us are used to. If anything it makes me want to install BF again. Also the tank is ridiculous, I tried taking out some dudes and could not for the life of me hit them and then one blew up my tank with a single nade.

I noticed it took me forever to hit things with the tank too... some kind of collision problem maybe.

It took me three rockets to blow a tank up though, so I don't think a single grenade would do it.

Combination of regen and health blocks maybe. (resistance,riddick)
Shooters these days have degenerated into spam fiestas.

Unlimited ammo, i mean come on, that's just plain "casual" scrub faggotry.

I doubt they are going to change the game that much with any patches. Since you don't like it...move on.

Well, I only play single-player, and I find regenerating health to be much more immersive, realistic and fun. I have no real idea how it works for multiplayer.
