    I'm not too informed on either, but from what I've been hearing, it seems like BF3 will be the better game.

    Battlefield for me. I will buy both (and provably not play them much i hate shooters ) but Battlefield is better IMO.

    MW3. Mostly because that is what all of my friends play.

    Halo: Anniversary.



    But the truth of the matter is you can never tell until you try them. If you have GameFly, I'd rent both and see which one you like before choosing one over the other. That, and look at reviews from places like IGN, GameSpot, X-Play, and GameInformer.

    I'll let you all know how the BF3 Beta plays once they put it out there. I get access because I bought that POS Medal of Honor game. Only reason I didn't trade it in was the future access for the BF3 beta.

    Knowing EA, they will screw up Battlefield 3. In fact they already are. No custom tools for PC map-making? Limited destruction? Throw in the inevitable pile of bugs (In BC2, I once lit up a dude at point blank with a LMG, NO WAY I could have missed, didn't kill him. Dude turns around and kills me with a freaking pistol when he should have been already been dead.

    As an CoD OG, not too confident in MW3 either, unless they go back to the old dedicated servers on PC instead of the IWNet in MW2 that FUBARd things on PC.

    The main problem I have with all these shooters now days is that they give you an enemy radar and kill cam. Gone are the days of Socom where you actually had to figure out where the enemy was at.

    Killcam is actually excellent for picking up cheaters. (I believe to be an CoD1 innovation to be exact)

    Besides, how else you are going to get gems like this? (Slight NSFW warning)



    See, without a killcam, you could never backup your ludicrous kill!

    How do you get an invitation to the beta? I have that game too but I see no option to register your e-mail.

    Aren't both games designed for console now, rather than PC? Quite frankly neither are going to be anything special when it comes to FPS.

    Its a shame that there aren't really any good new FPS games coming along from the competitive angle. Halo and CoD aren't anything close to Counter Strike 1.6 or Quake. I never really played Quake, but recently watched some tournaments/show matches and damn, some of those guys are just ridiculous. Too bad its being dropped by every tournament and is about to die off.

    That was pretty nice, but I just think they take away the tactical advantage. THough I usually rock a sniper rifle in these games. So I like an aspect of stealth and going undetected.

    I'm pretty sure the last couple of CoDs have modes for gamers such as yourself in them; no radar, no replays, that kind of thing.

    I'd like to see a new game come along that, while still balancing fun versus reality, puts the emphasis as far towards reality as possible with regards to the damage of the weapons and what you can/can't know while fighting.

    I'm thinking realistic damage, not just in terms of how many HP you lose, but I'm thinking loss of tissue (from getting grazed to losing a chunk to losing a limb to getting blown up), and I'm thinking a lot of consideration towards what each injury's impact should be on your ability to keep fighting. No more running straight towards someone at full speed and without even stumbling or rocking while they are pelting you with bullets. Being able to pass out from trauma or blood loss; dizziness/fogginess after a blow to the head, that kind of thing.

    BF Bad Company 2 didn't have killcams did it? You just sort of saw the guy who killed you right after he did it, you didn't get a for sure look at where he was.

    It also had a hardcore mode that got rid of radar and kill cam. I always played hardcore mode. i really liked that game, love having huge levels and loading up the smaller vehicles with C4. I've bought both MW2 and Black Ops and for both those games I have to say the levels just aren't big enough, and they made assault rifles too accurate at distance, made sniper rifles useless in that game.

    Well on the inside of the instruction book there should have been a key number, you input that key number and then that registers what ever email address you use for PS3. I believe you had to buy the Limited Edition.

    the graphics on the pc version of BF3 look absolutely phenomenal, by the way, and i don't think mw3's going to buck the trend of activision not doing anything for the pc ports..
