You guys now I'm not the biggest fan of the Call of Duty franchise, and for a few reasons. However, if they added one thing to their online multiplayer, I would play the game so much.
Add vehicles in Matchmaking.
Outside of campaign, there are no vehicles in Cod's online multiplayer. One of the reasons I like Halo over CoD is that Halo does have vehicular combat, though it may be unbalanced, it is still present. Many of CoD's maps are too cramped for even a 4-wheeler to fit in. If vehicles were added into the mix, there would be a lot more action, and maps would have to be more open to fit them in, adding some diverse areas.
I was watching my television a few weeks back when I saw an advertisement: a price cut in the 3DS.
Oh, and I knew it would happen. The system wasn't appealing enough, and the launch titles were (for the most part) awful. People are saving their money for the Mario games that will be released soon, or the StarFox 64 remake, and others. If Nintendo had just released these titles sooner, wouldn't they have gotten better sales? After screwing up the Wii, they screwed up the grand opening of their new system. Woopiddy doo.
Will the 3DS get the Wii's treatment as well? Get good games in the beginning, then lose momentum to other consoles that are releasing consistently good titles? I guess we;ll find out as the years go by.
At my school, they're having this laptop program in which students can bring in their own laptops, and those who don't just use school ones.
Naturally, all we do is play games.
You know, there's a lot of popular computer games out there, but it seems only two are played at my school: Minecraft and Happy Wheels.
Minecraft is a fun game, I have nothing against it. The classic (FREE) version has multiple multiplayer servers, including freebuilds, lava survival, zombie survival, spleef, capture the flag, and more.
Happy Wheels, on the other hand, is nothing but a stupid copy of Line Rider, but with stereotypical characters and senseless blood and gore.
Not saying I don't like blood and gore. I just don't like it when it's thrown into a stupid game. All you do in Happy Wheels is try to get to the end of a track, but there's speed boosts, harpoons and such.
However, the controls are crappy, you can loose body parts that affect your driving, and most of the courses are crappily put together, save a few fun ones. The whole game just seems like Line Rider, but with other crap thrown into the mix, and better graphics (though Line Rider isn't supposed to look graphically amazing...).
I just don't see the fun in that game. To me, it's a worthless piece of shit. Let's play N-Game, or RaidenX, or something along those lines.
Guesswhat? VCU is heading to Houston after wupping Jayhawk ass. Who has Butler vs. VCU in their Final Four? Please raise your hand.
See, this is what makes the NCAA the best Tourney out of all professional sports. It shows up every year with close games, huge upsets, and suprising appearances. The NFL Playoffs, World Series, Soccer Cup (whatever that is) have nothing on the NCAA.
Now let's have Kentucky beat up North Carolina for a REAL party in the Final Four. No number one seeds in it AT ALL. Thnak you VCU, Arizona, and the other teams who took down the big dogs.
I've given up hopes on a Star Wars: Battlefront 3. One of my favoirte shooter games series has come to an end with crappy spin-offs and the missing hole: Star Wars Battlefront 3.
It will never come. The developers had some problem/something else, I don't know. All I know is that the game's creation was given up. I waited patiently for years, until finally I just caved in. There will never be a Star Wars Battlefront 3, no way to repair the damaged series.
We can't end on this! Not with the many improvements Star Wars Battlefront 2 needs, not with other crappy Battlefront games making the series look bad! But alas, that is what will happen. All we can do is enjoy the two TRUE Battlefront games in existence.
R.I.P. Star Wars: Battlefront. May the Force be with you in Video Game Heaven.
Well, after conferring with a supermod, I'm back alive. Turns out my 'friend' DrMario24 got me banned becuase he was spamming and flamming in other forums, and I sometimes logged in on his CP when I went to his house, and I got caught in the crossfire.
But, just saying: I am back. Limited activity, though.
Anyways, to the bulk of the post. Yay, the 3DS is coming out! says someone.
And I just shake my head...
Damnit, Nintendo. ANOTHER DS!? Let's get a little more creative here please. First, you make the original DS. Nice move, great system, good sales. Then, the DS Lite... a DS that costed at least 30$ more than a regular DS becuase its SCREEN was LIGHTER. Wow.
Then nother DS, with a camera included. How many devices these days have cameras, again? Too many to count. Another dumb move.
Aaaaand the 3DS. It doesn't seem to have many changes to it, and I KNOW it will cost a considerable amount more than other DS variants. Why buy this system, though?
I won't. Reasoning?
1. The launch titles, in one word: SUCK. The majority of the people I've spoken to on Neo and other gaming cites won't buy the 3DS on it's debut becuase of the bad launch titles. 2. I just don't care. "It has enchanced 3D graphics!" Is that REALLY necesary. I play a PS2, a DAMN PS2 still, and it doesn't have amazing enchanced 3D graphics. I still play it, though. 3. The cost. Self-explanatory. 4. Lack of modifications. What else besides the 3D graphics and that crappy thumbad? Not much... 5. WHY CAN'T NINTENDO MAKE SOMETHING BESIDES THE DS!!!! Seriously, instead of launching out DS's like the daily newspaper, experiment, and release something NEW with many improvements and modifications, instead of adding little tidbits ot the DS and charging more and more for every new one! AAAARGH!!!!
So, in conclusion, I will not be buying the 3DS. RANT OVER.
Let me just say this before the initial post starts: I'm sick of the COD versus Halo war. Sick sick sick sick sick sick SICK OF IT!
Go to any public place with video gamers and talk to someone about Halo. You'll get swarmed by people claiming that Call of Duty is the best FPS game ever invented and that Halo sucks (etc. etc. etc.).
Now, I like both games: Reach and Modern Warfare 2: but it's obvious that COD has poisoned all video gamers. I was at school the other day, and the assisstant principal mentioned COD in his lecture to make a point. When he said that, people APPLAUDED and CHEERED. That is just sad.
Now with all of the Black Ops hype (the game doesn't even look that good) all of the COD fanboys have come out of the woodwork. In my school class, I got pissed off when some guy cussed me out when I said Reach is better than Modern Warfare 2.
This stuff just needs to end. I like the Halo franchise (I am NOT a huge fanboy) and the COD franchise, but I think that people need to settle down and not take saying a game is better than another as a personal insult.
