Every morning, our staff looks at the top gaming headlines and links and dump them in here for your reading pleasure... because there's nothing quite as pleasuring as a good morning dump.
With Battlefield 3 coming out in almost a month and only having two weeks before MW3 steps in the ring, which game will have more of an impact and become the best out of the two? First of all, let's cut it out with the "oh c'mon... both of these games are totally different" excuse right out the window. We KNOW these two games will compete against each other, but which game will get the most respect out of the gamers and remain at the top.
Battlefield 3, in my opinion, will be the best looking - as well as best shooting experience to hit the console. The first two weeks of its launch will be amazing and I can definitely assure you I will be broadcasting quite a bit after its launch. Once the BF3 honeymoon ends, will the game continue to be fun? Will there be annoying balance issues that will hurt the gaming experience? Bugs, exploits, the new NoobTube, anything that will start to aggravate us? Time will tell.
What we do know is that we are going to get a game that DICE has put a LOT of effort into. The Frostbite 2 engine continues to impress us and honestly, anything is possible with the engine they have. The game will have much more to offer than Modern Warfare 3 from what I've seen and read. You will be able to pilot jets, the scenery of each map is gorgeous, the sound effects are much more realistic, teamwork is a huge requirement, the list goes on. DICE even makes sure to let everyone know that this is not another Battlefield Bad Company 2 game. The gameplay is different and feels a lot better, but we will be the judges of that once the game gets launched.
But what has to worry DICE is the new upcoming Modern Warfare 3. It comes out two weeks after Battlefield 3 and will most likely dominate the XBL / PSN Live charts, for sure. We can be sure to see many videos on Youtube showing the 360 quick scope sniper shots, Machinima spamming the crap out of their own channels with MW3 content (after all... the COD series is what made Machinima become successful), MLG events using Modern Warfare due to its fast pace action, the list goes on...
But, the thing about Modern Warfare 3 is that... it really doesn't provide any renovation.
I've seen the gameplay and it looks like Modern Warfare 2, top to bottom. The same notifications, the same tags, same sound effects, same graphics, the same feel. Yes, we are given new guns, perks and maps, but does it just seem like we are paying for a map pack with added features rather than a full game? Does it feel like Infinity Ward and Activision is making Modern Warfare 2.5 and saving the effort of making the upcoming installment because they know their fanbase is a lot larger than Battlefield and we are gullible zombies that will buy anything COD-related? Maybe, this is a good thing. After all, Modern Warfare 2 was a major success so why bother change something that works. MW2 was fast pace and kickass and IW makes sure that MW3 will be a similar experience, as well.
So the main question is, with both Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 fighting for the top spot, who will win it?
