I'm not averse to picking up 3 but I really didn't think 2 was that great. 3 is basically the same right?

That series is one of the main reasons I own a ps3. I'm really looking forward to the originator of video game treasure hunting with the new Tomb Raider.

If you are a fan of that genre (Action-Tomb Raider type) I don't know how you could not have loved that game but to each is own.

For those getting MW3, specially marked Mountain Dew products have codes for double XP (2 days of gameplay I think).

We have a bunch of Diet Mt. Dew 12 packs in the office so I grabbed one of the leftover boxes.

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

How are we enjoying Battlefield 3? The maps are SUCH a colossal improvement over Black Ops. I think there are some questionable decisions - F18s with no flares and only guns to start, steep learning curve for choppers, etc. But this feels like a state of the art shooter.

The combat was mediocre at best: boring melee and cover mechanics that were closer to gta 4 than gears of war. The game was linear, there was only one way to get through each level or puzzle. And the story was not that great either. I don't think action-Tomb Raider is a genre, but if you compare 2 to other action games it falls short imo. Assassin's Creed II has better gameplay and a more open world, God of War and Bayonetta have superior combat systems, and Mass Effect 2 has an infinitely better story. Which is not to say that 2 was a bad game, but how can it be one of the best games of all time when it wasn't even one of the best games of its time?

Anyway, sounds like I should probably skip 3 given my opinion of 2.

I think you are in the minority in your opinion but you have a right to it.

Oh, no question about that. If we are going by consensus Uncharted 2 is top 5 games of all time. But is it fair to say I probably wouldn't like 3? It's not different than 2 right?

Absolutely lovin' it.

The choppers have always been tough in BF games, but I guess that's only fair because a good chopper pilot can really wreck shit up.

I played and honestly I think River Raid is a better game.




I even got a patch for my high score, lets see your BF3 do that!

I think you answered your own question.


If you don't like chocolate bars you probably not going to like fudge.

Oh yeah, just awful!

I can remeber getting a game and saying gee I hope some day the graphics will be as good as the picture on the box. Boy have we come a long way.

There's a fine line between crap and classic. I bought the Intellivision Lives package from XBOX Live. $15 and you get every Intellivision game ever made. I was amazed how bad the "graphics" were but these games will always hold a special place in my heart.

Two of my all-time Intellivision favorites:

Baseball - still probably the best baseball game I ever played



Astrosmash - loved this game, I used to play it hours on end until my console was about to explode

Interesting, COD is starting to feel like Madden with their yearly updates.

'Call of Duty' to let gamers track stats across platforms - CNN.com

It is mentioned in the article but Bungie has been already doing this with Halo for free.
