    Default MW3 is shit

    http://www.metacritic.com/game/plays...dern-warfare-3

    http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/121/1212113p1.html

    Called it.

    Not that it was hard to see it coming

    It's basically a map pack for MW2:







    The best part is that that engine is still just a heavily modified Quake 3 engine. At this point modified so much as to be almost unrecognizable, but there's still legacy code in there. A testament to how good John Carmack used to be before he decided building rockets was more fun than building video games.

    Professional reviewers are giving it high scores, gamers are giving it low scores. The high scores are due in no small part to bribes and threats to cut funding. No joke. This sort of back room bullshit has been documented in the gaming industry for several years. This is why we don't trust review sites, folks. Giantbomb.com being an exception.

    Review sites? Uhh, lol? I thought "(p)reviewing" a game is what Gamefly and Gamestop and all the other stuffs were for...

    I'm not even a "real" gamer and I know that.

You can feel your body: you can say, "I'd like to go over to this location" and you can move this mass of molecules through the air over to another location, at will... That's something you live inside of everyday.

    I think this franchise is having the same problems that the Assassin's Creed franchise is. They are becoming annual releases and the only time annual releases work well is sports games, and even then it takes years for real progress. The reason that Modern Warfare was soo good was that it came out of no where and they had an uncharacteristically long amount of time to work on it (for Activision at least) even when Treyarch and Infinity Ward were both working on games at least it gave them 2 years each to work on the games, now Treyarch is just killing themselves to push out product.

    hah. Blizzard and Bioware are the exceptions. I'm sure they are almost totally immune to executive meddling, rage about the D3 marketplace aside.

    No I haven't heard that, but I have heard that SC2 is a clone of some MUSH that I'd also never heard of.

    I find it hilarious that just a few years ago we were hearing about the death throes of PC gaming whilst Valve has been sitting in the back the entire time, printing money, virtually unchallenged.

    I guess that's what happens when you make a stellar gaming engine and then develop a plethora of games that span a ton of different FPS genre's, oh and create a few while you're at it.

    I was able to hack the code and carry over my MW2 stats to MW3. You have to have a boot loader and hex editor if you want to do this. PM me and I can give you directions. I don't want to post on the open forums since this might be somewhat illegal. Oh, and you can only play locally after you do this, otherwise you'll get banned from the online play.

    Who even bothered buying that shit? MW3 as far as I heard should be a half priced addon to MW2 not a stand alone game but hey fuckers will buy it anyway.
    Also Blizzard is no longer just making money they are greedy as fuck. HotS plot is already called shit and the ending is cliche as fucking hell! D3 is no longer on my list of things to buy! Blizzard has not made a good game since Diablo 2 nuff said.
