    They need a new war, I think! World war 2 has been done to death (although still epic, I think?) and Modern warfare has been pretty much shot to pieces too! Maybe Vietnam or Korea or even Falklands should be next?

    since black ops 2 will be in the future they should make MW4 in the age of dinosaurs just to mess with people

    Well at least they're trying to change the format.

    "Other key details uncovered by CVG's 20 minute look at the title, include the revelation of a branching storyline, which will will send the plot in different directions based on your choices within the game." :lolwut:

    There'll also be a real Real Time Strategy mode, "of sorts" with CVG revealing that: "At any point in time you can switch control between the men on the ground, the drones skulking around the floor, the armed quadrotors in the air or, our personal favourite, a general monitoring the entire battlefield from afar courtesy of cameras high above the site." :lolwut: :lolwut:

    This isn't Call of Duty. :lolwut:

    It's like they had a spasm attack between choosing a Mass Effect, some RTS and a generic Sci-fi shooter whilst still being CoD and Black Ops until one person had the bright idea to mash them all into one game.

    I really hope they branch out from small-scale games and maps in this new BO, it's just the same old boring stuff again if they don't..

    BF3 is so great with vehicles and the size, but the menus are crap, the classes are annoyingly clunky and the way the mini map works is so awful.

    Basically, I only like BF3 for the multiplayer concept, so if Black Ops does that, I'm sold. Totally and utterly :love:

    I love the BF3 interface/menu system.

    Well, I'm not sure how popular pre-Second World War games are but I do find it refreshing that other eras will be considered, although I wouldn't go for War of the Roses personally. I have a feeling it these eras will not help push sales as much as they can if they were more recent. Pity really. There could be something in the Spanish Armada if it had a more naval input. Or they could focus on specific smaller events like the Arab uprisings, Iran Contra, Pinochet, capturing arms traffickers (e.g. Viktor Bout), the genocides of Yugoslavia and Rwanda? Charles Taylor was recently convicted of war crimes and we were involved against him in the civil war of Sierra Leone so we could be in that too. Would be nice to see a game where we play as the SAS in the Falklands, just to annoy their politicians more. :awesome:

    Really? I find it really difficult, for example not being able to leave a multiplayer lobby whilst in-between games, or not being able to tinker with your classes whilst waiting for another game to start. Plus the spawn system is a bit strange to me, and my mini-map is invisible if I run over bright grass, since it gets whited out..

    I know BF3 is supposed to give the players less information, to better simulate a battle experience, but it still grates on me

    Mmm, the War of the Roses isn't being developed by Activision / Treyarch, but I'm interested in seeing how it comes out. Apparently they're being careful to avoid the "Dynasty Warriors" approach, and are making it really realistic, ie a crossbow takes around 30 seconds to load, but will destroy someone once it's fired.

    Meh, not buying it. Wasn't impressed by Black Ops, MW3 was slightly better, but I still like MW2 and I'm not buying another COD title since alterIW was taken down. It's all good though, I still have COD4 and IW4m (fourdeltaone - it's MW2 with dedicated servers and you need a legit copy of MW2 so activision can suck it it's perfectly legal!). I still dabble in COD1 from time to time. Black ops was just piss poor in my opinion.

    Is that on Xbox?

    They fixed it so you can leave lobby's. Spawning can be annoying if you spawn on someone who is dying. I've never noticed any issues with the minimap over certain surfaces, although I think they improved it last patch.

    I don't like futuristic stuff like that. My next purchase will be bf3 and the only reason i would EVER consider buying that game is for zombies if mo and that get it.

    No PS3, it's because the contrast is much higher than most games, so a bright sunny patch of grass produces so much background noise you can't see the faint blue minimap over the top. Maybe there's a feature to increase it's opacity, I've not looked.

    When did they fix the lobbies? So glad they did, was so frustrating to have to sit through a 30 second break period, followed by a load screen, before you could tab out!

    Fair enough...it isn't thaaat futuristic. Set in 2025 :p:

    I bought BF3 when it released and traded it in for more than I bought it when MW3 came out. In hindsight, I should have just kept it...
