Judging by all the noise on the internet, two of my favorite shooting franchises have been rushed. COD is suffering frame-rate issues on all platforms, which to me is completely unacceptable. Battlefield is also suffering a host of problems, though I can't imagine that I will so much as notice. Seems to be mostly a PC issue.
I'm skipping COD this go around, until I can get it for 30 bucks anyways. Really a shame. I wish that the devs were allowed to take their time with these games and work out the kinks. COD NEEDS 60FPS. That's like a franchise staple.
Looks like I'll be waiting for Titanfall and Halo 4 before I get a truly stellar shooting experience. Though, I'm still salivating at the prospect of 64p metro on consoles, all juiced to hell in the visual department. *gargle* *swoon* *preen*
Also, as far as people getting free Killer Instinct and fee XB1s today... I'm sad to say I was not included. I know that there have been obvious inconsitencies in how the awards were handed out... with lots of long-time supporters getting the shaft... but I'm dissapointed. As someone who beta tested XBLive, has had every Xbox console at launch (and two of each), have an X1 preordered since the reveal event, and have literally poured my money into Xbox Live and Xbox games... I'm feeling rather betrayed. Some snot-nosed kid who has had an Xbox for 4 years is probably getting a free box and a free copy of KI, and I'm sitting here, undoubtedly one of Xbox and MS' top supporters (typing on my lumia 520, using my Surface RT, hooked into Xbox Live through every avenue, writing code on W7) with nothing to show for it.
Thanks for recognizing my support, MS. Not that I'll stop... but I will remember this.
