Nice price on the Bureau. The rest isn't much to shake a stick at.

 

This. Quite a bit is at a reasonable price, but I already have it or it has been the same price many times or cheaper before.

 

I was thinking the same, but then I was thinking how:

 

1.  I'll regret it when a super cheap EW + Bureau pack comes out.

2.  That won't help you in your quest to lose your virginity.  

 

I can't argue with #2, but I'd be surprised if an EW + TB pack came out that didn't also include EU.

If this dadgum snow doesn't get off my dang lawn, I may very well have Fat Tuesday, St. Patrick's Day, April Fools, and Easter Sunday lights up too.

 

I only play games when they cheap so by that time DICE has got their shit together.  

 

Add Obsidian to the list, too.  ;)

Haven't played it myself, and I'd imagine you may be able to find it from another CAG who had it from a past bundle for $1-2. That said, cheap price and the cards aren't totally worthless (well, now that it's on sale, I may eat those words).

Call of Duty isn't realistic whatsoever, it's arcadey and way too fast paced. The Arma series is realistic. The Battlefield series is probably a cross between the two.

Been awhile since I played Call of Duty, but I'd use the word cinematic instead of arcadey.

Really? It's so FAST, and there's almost no realistic recoil. Different story with all the CoD games before MW, but yeah. If you're talking about the single player campaign, it's very cinematic, but I'm talking about the gameplay vs. a much more realistic warfare simulator like Arma.

Eh - hard to say.

Certainly since I do like both a lot, actually.

 

Both BoP + NFS: MW 2012 seem to lack different types or races + events. Most of that is typical type of racing stuff in NFS: MW 2012 - lap racing; circuit racing; and best speed average racing. If you want more interesting or different race types like earlier NFS's had (see NFS Most Wanted 2005 + Carbon + Undercover) - you'll be disappointed.

 

B/c BoP isn't really a 100% racing game - for me, this feels more unique than NFS: MW 2012. Besides typical races, BoP has the stunt-runs and those "slam the car" runs - and those are a blast.

 

And there's no real attempt at any sort of storytelling in either game, as well. Especially when compared to MW 2005, MW 2012 definitely lacks any sort of personality + storytelling. If you have no problem w/ the lack of storytelling - then it won't be a big deal.

 

Both NFS: MW 2012 + Burnout Paradise are pretty damn good open-world racers, though. They have some similar things w/ each other and some different things going on when compared than each other.

 

The other complaint I have w/ NFS: MW 2012 is that getting the game to run well and properly can be a pain-in-the-neck; and that FMV's/cut-scenes don't always play properly (sometimes they lag, don't really play well, or God knows what). It certainly ain't the best technical port - that's for damn sure. And to get a stable framerate, might be worth locking down in the config files to 30 FPS - since when I had the lock off, performance would jump b/t 30 FPS and 60 FPS drastically at the drop of a hat, causing stutters and momentarily there would be slow-downs often. Once locked to 30 FPS - it ran perfect, rock-solid, and silky-smooth at that framerate-cap for me.

Tony, you might want to check the DRM on the pack, since it says it is Steam, but some of the individual games Store page show them being DRM-free, or don't mention Steam, which 99% of the time mean DRM-free.

Technical issues are my biggest complaint with NFS:MW too.

 

It runs reasonably well (I don't know the exact FPS, but I'd guess around 60) most of the time, except for the odd slowdown like you mentioned. Since these are almost always in free-roam, and only last for a few seconds, it doesn't bother me too much.

 

By biggest complaint is the random (still haven't noticed any pattern) crashing: the game will freeze entirely for a few seconds, then the sound will resume and I regain control... but the picture is still frozen, so I have to restart the game to be able to play any more. :wall:

 

I can't comment much on the cutscenes, because I usually skip them. That said, I did see one where all the cars were flying, and they do always look trippy, with strange colours and filters on them... but I can't tell whether that's intended or not.

It was great.  But honestly for me Burnout 3 was the best burnout with 4 coming in a close second.  If you haven't played it by not you're likely not interested.

Those two games are the reason I hated Paradise. It's a shame that there will never be another burnout title like the (superior) originals.

Loved Bo3. Then I bought Revenge and utterly hated it. You were rewarded by smashing in the backs of ALL cars while racing (civilian cars, I mean). It wouldn't slow you down at all, and I think it gave you points/boost etc, yet the second you tapped a car in the nose or side? Even if it wasn't moving? Bam! You wreck or go flying off course.

 

Utterly ridiculous system, totally ruined the game for me. Never tried Bo4 though.

I'd rather it (NFS: MW 2012) run solid at 60 FPS and never budge - of course, who wouldn't?

But, it just doesn't run solid at 60 FPS on my PC (i7 950; 1 GB of GF GTX 50 Ti; 8 GB of RAM; Win 7 64-bit).

 

Running solid at 30 FPS is certainly better than the wild-jumping & stuttering, slow-downs, and whatnot w/ the framerates b/t 30 FPS to 60 FPS.
