GS News - Witcher 3 Info Leaks, Battlefield: Hardline Not Just An Expansion

Visceral Games insists Hardline isn’t a Battlefield 4 expansion, Microsoft say people love Kinect, and the new console war is only getting started.

So they're telling people who have played the game, that it isn't what they played.

If it looks like crap, smells like crap and tastes like crap... chances are that it's crap.

Battlefield is like a cookie. It's all a lie.
I mean they say it's been in the making for three years and yet the first thing I felt when I played it (So even before I read online what other might think also) is that it's BF4 all over again with a new map, new gadgets and 2 new (and frankly very fun) game modes. I mean three years to make a new Battlefield and yet there's not much "new" other then that? The map design is awesomely good (except there should be a game mode where you actually have to go over the whole map) but really, I don't buy it. I do hope for it's campaign to be as fun and humorous as Bad Company. 

As for the leaked info, well those things shouldn't be promoted in gaming news and be kept as quiet as possible for everyone. Yeah sure "It's up to the gamer to know whether or not to read" but this is exactly like movies. You know there is going to be some spoilers before and after it comes out online but you don't let others know it exist.

We have beta we don't need them trying to lie about what they are delivering we have already experienced it and its nothing new and not worth the money. Vehicle collisions suppose to be better in this? I find it to be horrible in my beta experience. Hopefully people take a stand and this is the weakest selling BF in a long time so EA takes a long hard look at their methods.

Still lots of lagg in Hardline beta!


Also The whole game feels 'soft' , texturing, weapons, vehicles etc. Players still can kill you after you clearly killed them 1st. Maps are small but also pointless as all the action centres on a small portion of the map. the grappling hook, zip line and even the stun gun are just pointless gimmicks......I know its beta but even Shanghai got me more excited for the complete game!!

Having played a ton of Battlefield Hardline....

Origin just banned me for five years, on the Battlelog I paid for, for being openly heterosexual and not taking unreasonable criticism from pink-panty wearers who also create silly in-game rules about types of guns/weapons for a WAR GAME; and about weapons of which I do not have a photographic memory.


So, they are essentially saying;- "Only buy from Origin competitors from now on; as other companies do not mistreat you after you buy the product"


So.........

Payday 2 is $10 on Steam. 

Its a steal.

I'll be honest, this is the only GS show that I watch....and its only because Jess is so friggin cute!

Yeah, Hardline is definitely not just an expansion. Expansions are $20 tops (season passes excluded), they expect you the shell out $60 for this.

You just have to look at a short clip like that to know that Hardline recycles assets, like the map architecture and landmarks, straight from BF4. DICE tend to be very lazy with reusing structures. They did the same thing with BF3 and its DLC. Its like...wait a minute......haven't I been killing people here before?!

Re Hardline, have been playing the beta for past week. It does recycle 90% of BF4 concepts. Just new names to old soldier classes (still with those annoying snipers), most of the same weapons with a few novelties (overpowered sawed off shotgun), and even recycling gadgets from BF2 special forces expansion like zip lines and grapple hooks.


Any changes in the physics engine with weapon fire or vehicles are unnoticeable from BF4. Heist and blood money modes are fun, but a small variation on rush and other BF modes. Ok, it's a beta, but it has inferior graphics quality compared with BF4 and still lots of bugs with collisions and is lousy with hackers, .aimbots, etc. Feels like another attempt by soulless suits at EA to charge full game price for what should be a 10$ BF4 DLC. Not worth full price.

Thanks for promoting the Witcher 3 leaks again. *sigh*

Sorry, Jess, I always liked your show but I will boycott your news from now on. One user less.

Gaming press should learn that journalism is more than sensationalism.

Hardline does feel an awful lot like BF4 but since it's still early in the game's lifecycle it is very much possible that it will begin to feel more like a stand alone game and not an expansion. Right now it does feel like a reskinned BF4 with different map and playmodes.

@MartinX60 "Battlefield is like cake. It's all a lie."


Just wanted to fix that for you.


In all seriousness, I completely agree. I have a hard time seeing Hardline as a game that brings something new to the table. It's not even like the content is all that new to the BF series. I mean, half the "new" items have been copied and pasted (figuratively) from BF2 Special forces.

Few are anymore.

I came to the Party late with bfbc2. But I was instantly a die hard loyalist.

Now there really is no difference between CoD and BF both are souless copies of copies.

@bigruss51 Agreed. Seems to get worse and worse with each release IMHO.

@LordCrash88 

Why should you care about whether anyone is promoting the alleged leaks anyway?

Also, I am going to watch whether you can put up with that boycott - I doubt that you can and you would unwittingly view a video with Jess with it sooner or later again.

@DarkLord That's what I keep hoping.


I'd be a lot more optimistic if previous BF games hadn't been so similar to their Betas. And if Hardline was in Alpha. 


I can't help but feel that Hardline is the product of a bored mod team that got a hold of BF4...

@wexorian @Fantasticus Man, I'm from Australia and I find it really hard to understand her sometimes. I also wondered what the accent was.

@Gelugon_baat Easy: everyone promoting the leak increases the probable spreading of the files and therefore the chance to get spoilt even if you try not to. But more and more people will know the stuff and post it on forums in discussions. That's the reason.

@homelessgamer

Hey... and out of billions of years; you both were born at an almost exact same time in history.

A-maysing co-in-si-dents..


Serious; after ten years, you will want a new one; no matter how pleasured you are.

Also; even girls get bored of their own anatomy.... which can prove interesting if you are different... but then they get bored of yours also.....so.....

Hence computer games. 

Anyway.....

Where are all the women in Battlefield Heist 2........in the age of EQUALITY?


Do we need a Jess running around like an oversexed Laura Croft with low standards; ..... and is there a dodgy massage parlor in game anywhere?

;)

We should be told.

@LordCrash88 

Well, if you are saying that, then I would say that it is still up to the individual to know what are spoilers and steer clear of of them.

Also, you just came to the page for this video again - after saying that you wanted to boycott it.
