    That sounds like heaven.

    God I miss bolt rifles from the old CoD days.

    will be mental to enforce the server side of things though surely!

    Mind you if they did this it would be awesome! They suggested the smallest map will be (in terms of the game size) around 2 miles x 2 miles, and game types to be rush and team death match. Reason for such big maps is they want to fully do stuff like Berlin / Paris / Operation Market Garden.

    I spoke to one of the devs at the game expo

    I'd assume they'd do ranked servers = follow weather settings.

    Unranked = do as you please type of thing.

    I always though "Sharpe" would make a good FPS game!

    No. Treyarch only did the wii port. The rest of the farming out was to Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software

    Oh yes, complete with Shaun Bean doing the voice overs, mind you the mrs would be kicking me off it so she could play it.

    Veering ever so slightly off topic: I hated BF2, the multiplayer just did not feel fluid enough. Is BF3 a big improvement? I'm tempted to give it another go... I'll more than likely get MW3 too. Yep, same game again, but if you look at it as another map pack it's not as disappointing!

    Oh, and an FPS version of Sharpe would be awesome!

    Just out of sheer laziness, do you happen to know if there's a demo avail on XBL? I'm assuming most of you are on XBL [asopposed to PSN]?

    So yer, MW3 sucks.

    For once the Spec Ops is the best part of the game!

    In every previous CoD MP I had a K/D ration or between 2&3, In MW3 I cant even get into positive numbers! Its shocking!

    Lag, poor hit recognition and shoddy spawns!

    According to gamestation figures (and game, HMV, etc) 65% of all MW3 games were refunded (xbox and PS3 primarily as most PC copies the CD key has been used therefore can't be refunded).

    Cracks me up, all the hype and the best part is Spec Ops and Survival

    I actually preferred the single player to MW3 then BF3, thought the vehicles was pure fun in BF3 though - shame the story was dead boring - they should have stuck with the BF Multiplayer with Bots style.

    As for MW3 refunds - is that fact or just people saying rumors because according to the reviews I have seen it has been rated highly and blew BF3 sales out of the water. Just curious that's all unless I see it published on a review site I tend to ignore it.

    Although I had been reading the review by IGN about FPS games, talks about FPS games being the same old same old (Realistic World War style). I would agree with that especially the fact that multiplayer seems to be the main building part of FPS games lately. I have always been the "Story, Action, Gameplay" (in that order) type of person.

    BUT either way doesnt really matter, games companys' care about one thing - sales. And according to IGN/SUN/EMPIRE sales have gone through the roof and yet again broke records......

    Shame really - means BF4/MW4 will just be improved graphics, sound and multiplayer and that's it.... unless one of them takes a risk and does something different..
