DICE is one of the most bizarrely overrated Multiplayer developers. Medal of Honor is where I hope they get called out for it, as the beta, like most other DICE, was a mess.

I hope the game's singleplayer is good. That said, I think I'll hold off. The SP is what interests me and it being "marked down" to $50 on PC doesn't seem low enough for that.

Given EA past history (BFBC2, ME2, DAO, Deadspace, Dante's Inferno), this game will be $30 regular price in 3-6 months (probably just a little while after Holiday 2010 is over). Hell, I imagine there'll be a Steam sale on it during the infamous Steam Black Friday Everything Must Go Now Now Now Sale.

Did the Beta on PC and didn't like the gameplay at all. I was expecting FPS. As an RTS it was boring.
PSWii60 FTW!!!

I didn't play the beta, so MoH is an RTS and not a FPS? Feck that i'll pass. :bomb:

lllGurulll I just watched the Gamescom: Conference demo and I don't know why you say it's an RTS so i'll have whatever you're having. :lol:

The game actually looks very cool, you're in an Apache helicopter blowing shit up. 8-)

I might get it now, well after the price drop that is. :)

Does anyone know if Amazom would match this deal? I know they didn't match the Walmart $20 e-card deal.

I haven't played the beta. But holy crap, all this time I thought the new developing team Danger Close or whoever was in charge of the multi-player and not the other way around. There's no excuse if that's the case.

Dice? Overrated? LOL.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was the best multiplayer FPS on the current generation of consoles.

Yeah, I really loved Bad Company and its sequel. I mean, maybe you can argue they are "overrated" in the sense that both games get a lot of praise and perhaps some people don't think they deserve that much attention. But in the end, both games had really damn good MP portions. I think it's hard to say otherwise. Just look at the reviews and the sales. They must have been doing something right.

I remember when MOH came out it was strictly for the PC and that was awesome! Then again that was a longgggg time ago.

IIRC, the guys who made MOH: Allied Assault on the PC went on to form Infinity Ward.

Yes. The guys that were at 2033 decided they wanted to control their own destiny, hopped into bed with a pre-Blizzard Activision, and thumbed their noses at EA, the sweat shop running bad guys that were to famously be accused of working their programmers to death for peanuts.

Fast forward to 2010 and you have a conspiracy by Blizzard-Activision to control their destiny, deprive them of the bonuses they were owed, and when they refused to bow to the Kotick (Ruler of the Unholy Blizzard-Activision Imperium), they were tossed out so that Activision could retake control of the Call of Duty franchise. What was a Kotick to do? Guitar Hero had tanked because they bought the company who owned the name, but not the company that made the game awesome. DJ Hero was a dismal failure because people didn't want yet another peripheral. This also killed the last Tony Hawk game with its horrible peripheral and even more horrible game.

The Kotick could not lose control of the Call of Duty franchise and they certainly could not let Infinity Ward alone have rights to every CoD game set after Vietnam like they had foolishly agreed before IW was set to making CoD:MW2.

So the heads of IW had to go. It is no coincidence that as soon as they were gone, Treyarch's new bastard child started blowing up the gaming news sites.

And the heads of Infinity Ward? Back in bed with their ex, EA, working now under the same EA Partners umbrella that lured in id (originally for Rage before it was bought by Bethesda), Epic (and Bulletstorm), and Insomniac.

Now EA is the last, best hope for honorable profit in the industry against a tyrannical overlord who sees the gaming industry as nothing but a variant of the soap industry.

Think about that the next time you're buying a $20 flying mount off the Blizzard WoW site, a $10 lil kt, an overpriced CoD map pack that includes old maps from yesteryear, or a pack of songs for Guitar Hero. You're funding the man who wants to take all the fun out of gaming.

Meanwhile, the heads of Infinity Ward are FINALLY in control of their own destiny. It only took them to EA, to Activision, and then back to EA to get there.

No. There is another....
