I'm probably not the only one who thought MechWarrior 2 when looking at the title.

BTW, if I'm going to play a competitive multiplayer game, I don't want to have to need a system to bankrupt Bill Gates to play it on.
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

Dude, there's such thing as PC. (Though the lack of dedicated servers makes it somewhat gay.)

Not to mention that this trailer is HORRIBLE!  :shaking:  The previous one is cool but this is just ****. And it spoils so many cool things for example the ISS Astronaut scene.

First reviews are up, it seems to has a somewhat absurd story. The rest however looks great as always.

Hmm, this might be the first Call of Duty game I would consider getting...

I'm very worried about the story given that they've decided to go completely insane with it, but I still think it'll be a blast as far as killing **** for a few hours goes.

I am extraordinarily peeved in many ways at this game, but I'm still going to play it.

This is one of the dumbest remarks I've ever heard. The 360 is cheaper than the PC and plays this game fine, and if you're going to play it on PC, it's got some of the lowest system requirements out there.

It looks like they kinda decided not to even try be authentic with this installment

 
I heard MW2 uses Steam, P2P online connections, and is completely unmoddable.  Is any of that false?
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

No. And the player limit was lowered to 9v9 from the previous 16v16.

So much for server communities. *sigh*

There's a bit of a stink about the scene in the Airport at the moment:

Must admit, I can understand the concerns, even if I'm not certain how I feel about them.

That scene I love. It's skippable, and the player has no reason or even character incentive to fire on the crowds (s/he's supposed to be a deep-cover CIA operative.) And it puts players face to face with the horror of what the bad guys are doing.

That's kind of how I feel, it certainly demonstrates how powerful a story-telling tool a video game can be, but I can also understand why some people are concerned about it.

Just goes to show that people need to take the rating system seriously, and stop assuming computer games are 'just for kids'.

Edit: As someone who used to mow down pedestrians in Carmageddon 2 whilst laughing like a man possessed, I suppose I'd be hippocritical to feel any other way really ;)

I guess at this point we should warn you that there were spoilers on this page.


Oh wait, you already read them. Ooops.

Well, strictly speaking, it'd be like going into a BSG thread and not expecting to see spoilers, but I might add a spoiler warning at the start of the thread anyway ;)

 
So MW2 uses Steam, has a lower player limit, and has no dedicated servers?  I declare MW2 a "FAIL".

Steam is good, but other than that, I agree.

Yeah, I have no idea how anyone could think those were good ideas. :rolleyes:

Ah well, I have a console and I don't do multi anyway.
