uhhh, i read half way through and was like. Its not all about the PC version of the game. I mean look at the consoles. the Consoles can only do DX9, however with an updated engine like Frostbite 2 they can make DX9 look amazing.

Ive been watching videos and such of MW3 and its really MW1/2 all over again, so im not getting it. Skyrim, AC Revelations, BF3, and Batman Arkham City for me.

And to me its not the graphics that bug me about CoD its the fact that its all the same mechanics, gameplay, etc.

With a new engine it would allow some innovation in the series without loosing fanbase. it could change the mechanics a bit, animations definitely, and physics, and make the gameplay a little different but not turning the game to a tactical shooter. Keep it to the run and gun arena style we all know. Also the other thing that bugs the crap out of me in CoD is that there has been know considerations of balancing. I don't think they looked at the balancing aspecs of the games
Ah but it is about PC were it started and we all got shafted with the dairy farmers milk machines after they Inked the deal to do a CoD every year.I`m not mad just wish they would update the game and do free maps like they did in Cod4 ,none of the zombie crap or the pay to play with DLC.Come on Cod-UO was a great run for nearly 3 years Cod2 the same ...Now we get a re-skinned map and menu every year and the teeny pot heads still buy it .....At least with BF3 we get to enjoy for a few years before they ask us to buy a new one.Look at it this way

Codmw3 =$60
Dec or Jan =Codmw3 dlc =$20
June-July Another DLC=$20
Sept Oct =Dlc yet again another $20
Nov 2012 Yeah CoD new game name Maybe Rip Off or Got ya by the wallet edition=$60 then repeat above in 2-3 month cycles.....So in a year most of them Spend $120 plus on Cod and you expect me not warn you that your wasting money ..That is a New HD,Memory or hell you could save up and buy a real PC.If you use a X-box,PS3.....

Its getting shorter and shorter eveytime a new one comes out, i found bf3 a bit shabby too the single player, not unplayable but sorely lacking in freedom of movement ,ie half the time i ended up getting the "return to battlefield" and the story was very convoluted , its all about "online" now i guess. There wasnt much humour in it , all too serious for my liking, what happened to the comedic element that was in previous bf series?
Cod should be in today, sounds quite ok anyhow from your post.:)

What humor???? I found running people over back in the days of BF 1942 quite hilarious - in fact, i still do...especially when you set up a LAN server and fight against 64 or more bots,

you can corner them once youve captured all the points and then you can get in a jeep and just ram into about 10 of them as they spawn.

BFBC2 has a little humour but I dont know what sort of humour youre on about

It was more light hearted with the wise cracks and the atmosphere wasnt quite so 'serious", thats how i felt about it anyhow, the vibe of the game has changed i guess.
Your inspiring me to try out online multi player , im not very used to that, never really bothered but it sounds like great fun, might give it a go .:toast:

Word of warning....

Online players tend to be a lot lot lot lot lot lot moar smarter then your average LAN/SP bot.

you wouldnt be able to just ram 10 of them just like that, they would probably kill you before you get any where close

I dont know i loved the story for BF3. I watched a lot of the walk through videos of MW3 was am not impressed at all. Its just like Homefront where $60 is not worth it for 5 hours long campaign with a rehashed recycled multiplayer
