Outside of the videos released, I haven’t really been keeping much tabs on Battlefield 3, so decided to take a lurk around the web today for some news. Now I kinda wish I hadn’t!
WingsofRedemption, a well known YouTube user who posts CoD videos for Machinima spoke out about BF3 a while ago:
Basically, wanting the Battlefield series to turn into yet another CoD clone with Killstreaks, to which zh1nt0 from DICE replied:
zh1nt0 Daniel Matros (Twitter)
Wings of redemption.. you have no idea
The Battlefield community have been speculating that this means that the next Battlefield game, Battlefield 3, will have the dreaded Killstreaks, that in my opinion, TOTALLY RUIN ANY GAME! Yeah, lets encourage people to play as less of a team even more, camping for their precious Killstreaks, that sounds like a totally neato idea!
Now, this could have been just misinterpreted, and zh1nt0 was infact saying, “WingsofRedemption, you have no fucking idea what you are talking about, go back to CoD, and leave us the fuck alone”, ahem, or something along those lines. But with all the latest interviews with the guys at EA/DICE saying that they are going after Call of Duty with this game (the same as they did with Medal of Honor, and we all know how that turned out), and absolutely no details released about the multiplayer aspect of the game, things are looking a bit, well I don’t want to be accused of scaremongering, but they aren’t looking too good. No news isn’t always good news, and you can’t blame the community for getting worked up over it
