So I apologize to Kenai for not joining his Gears 2 game on Friday night. My buddy who got a 360 for last Christmas begged me to play some Horde with him and you know what? I still like Horde more than anything else about Gears 2. I love it in part just because of the chaos of it. And at one point this past Friday, I successfully decapitated three Locust in a row with a torque bow arrow. Never done that before.
Any way, I've only scratched the surface on Killzone 2, so I'll refrain from going into it too much. I will say that the controls are still tripping me up. I really think that game could've used a stick to cover button like Gears because it's so essential to use cover in the campaign. I'm sure I'll get more into this in the coming weeks.
But the other thing I wanted to mention is that Infinity Ward is asking COD: MW fans to chime in on what you'd like to see on the next iteration of the series that is coming this year. I've mentioned how much I loved COD 4 many times on this site. It might just be my favorite first person shooter ever. And the reason is simple. I believe the mechanics of that game are better than any other for console. Even better than Halo. Every other first person shooter has to measure up to IW's masterpiece. And I believe that the only way that it can be topped is by that team itself.
Here's my concern. I'm afraid IW is going to make things overly complicated. I'm afraid that they will add too much. I like not having vehicles in COD 4. I think any modern vehicle will make it an impossible game to balance. So please don't add the vehicle element.
I do believe that there should be some kind of penalty for camping too much. If you stay stationary in one spot for too long, you will automatically die and re-spawn at a very different part of the map.
But ultimately, I basically want them to add four-person live co-op, more weapons, more maps and the ability to customize your soldier's look for multiplayer (maybe even steal something from Rainbow Six and let people put their faces on their soldier). I would also like more colors and rewards for certain guns. Like I have the red tiger M4, but I'd like something better. I do NOT think that they should mess with much else. This to me, was a game that was so close to perfection but they just needed to iterate on a few things.
So you tell me Gearheads, what would you like to see in COD: MW 2? And how was FFF for you? Any stories to share?
