    I hope it’s big enough for ground war this time.

    Kingoptimus: like u, I love the JRPG. In fact, its my fave genre.

    The majority of my 600+ game collection is made up of JRPG’s.

    I am also very loyal to sony products. They have the best games PERIOD.

    That said…..while the CoD engine is a tired one, when it comes to satiating my online multiplayer needs….CoD is a go to game of choice each year.

    I enjoy the short campaigns. I enjoy the team deathmatch WITH my actual real life friends. I do not play with the typical online prepubescent filth that sucks up all the nations bandwidth however.

    I do play uncharted 3 online, I likes me some mortal kombat online as well.
    Even though I almost always stick to single player experiences, of which CoD’s campaigns are solid ones, its nice to jump online with some buddies and unwind for a bit.

    Milked or no….the formula works and in many instances is good clean fun.

      @Malcolm Reynolds:
      Well said! Have a thumbs up!

      I, also, love JRPGs to the death and is one of my favourite genres alongside stealth type games like Dishonored, MGS and Deus Ex for instance.

      I somewhat agree to CoD having great online despite the annoying quickscopers but back when I first played MW and MW2 I was entertained for months but sadly the series has become somewhat stale but on the other hand Blops 2 seems to kick up the series a notch.

      I’ll wait for some actual reviews before deciding whether to buy it or not.

      @Malcolm Reynolds:
      I agree with most of what you said but it all comes down to which game is offering me more quality.

      I’m not trying to be mean this is just my own opinion

      I prefer Battlefield and Medal Of Honor over COD because it doesn’t feel like they’re rehashing the same game. I know Battlefield Bad Company 2 isn’t a true Battlefield game but look at the jump from Battlefield Bad Company 2 to Battlefield 3. It not just the graphics, its the scopes, the weapons, flashlights, laser sights, cameo on your soldier, dog tags, vehicles, largeness of the maps, the design layout of the maps, the ranking system, battlelog & so on.

      The point is if I’m going to spend $60 on a game, I won’t to spend it on something that is offering me more quality. When I see COD all I see is the same formula and I don’t like that. It just doesn’t look or feel right to spend $60 on a game that is rehashing.

      The last COD game I played was Black Ops and after that it felt like I wasted $60 on it. The last good COD game in my opinion was COD Modern Warfare 1. Like you say the formula works but other people see through it, just not the amount of people who buy it.

      Medal Of Honor & COD:
      I’m not going to lie I got into Medal Of Honor around Airborne but Medal Of Honor 2010 reboot had something special about it. That was the campaign.

      I know now days FPS have quick campaigns some not good but MOH 2010 campaign had that feel like you have a better understanding what soldiers have to go through. Not all this we Micheal Bay slamming things into buildings and explosion constantly just to make the game look bad ass. That mission in MOH 2010 when you were trapped with all those Taliban soldiers coming at you and the hut was getting destroyed then the helicopters saved you when you were moments away from death was intense. I have never played a military soldier game that made me feel that way. Also (not going to spoil it) at the end was very deep.

      Now as far as the multiplayer well lets not lie it was half ass but from the looks of MOH Warfighter multiplayer at E3 2012 it looks like they’ve learned their lesson no to rush a game. Speaking of E3 if you look at MOH demo & the COD demo you can tell EA has been making sure the game is a lot better and a step up from MOH 2010 while again COD Black Ops 2 looks the same in terms of gameplay.

      All I got to say is both MOH Warfighter and COD Blacks Ops 2 have stepped it up but MOH Warfighter looks far better and a lot more supported than Black Ops 2. Again its all about who is offering me more and as far as I’m concern COD is not offering me to choose who I want to fight with in the multiplayer, they’re not offering me anything new in the multiplayer besides two new modes, COD is not offering me a story that shows what soldiers have to go through, they’re not offering me much. Yeah they might have this futuristic look but gameplay, multiplayer, & story wise its same formula like you said nothing new that they are doing.

      Again I’m not trying to be mean this is just my own opinion.

        I loved the campaign for MOH 2010.
        Blackops had a great campaign as well though.
        Battlefield BC2 had the worst campaign this gen out of military shooters but the online was damn good.

        I pretty much buy them all but when I jump online its to socialize with friends. Thosefriends play CoD. Not battlefield or MoH.
