I had a go on BF3 for the first time in ages yesterday. I gotta say, I do still actually like the game, even if I'm desperatly trying not to give EA anymore of my time and money.
But it did get me thinking . . . Half the reason I went on was to see if it had been updated in any way. I honestly havn't played it for so long that I thought it might have been. And on seeing that it hadn't my suspicions of corporate shenanigins was comfirmed (in my mind anyway). No more work to be done on BF3, every man and his dog are working on BF4 which I reckon the release has been brought forward since they knew just how crap Simcity was going to be.
So whilst Simcity is lame in the water, it's all hands to the pump to get BF4 out and making money before EA go down like the sinking ship it is.
If anyone here has pre-ordered BF4 then you really havn't been keeping up with the news and your kinda dis-honouring the gaming community.
Whilst I won't say never, I really don't want to buy it. Not so soon after the Simcity debarcle. And as it's the same engine as BF3, I can't really see how it's going to be that much improved as all it will be is a vehicle for next gen consoles that will be released this autumn.
Oh well, back to World of Tanks it is then. Still, World of Warplanes is coming out soon. The teenage modeller in me keeps creaming himself over that.
