We did hunter/hunted in COD4 many times when live was acting up and it was a blast.  Would be fun with vehicles too slywink

I think the key is developing the right "feel".  It needs to feel like a game of cat and mouse with one heavily-armed team looking to hunt down unarmed people in the city.  The game should start with everyone in the same area and the hunted will have a head start of just a few moments.  They'll have to frantically put some distance between themselves and the hunters while also trying to find usable weapons and areas ideal for setting up a defensive position or going on the attack.

The hunters, once the time limit is up and they're free to begin hunting, can work together, go off separately, grab a vehicle, or head out on foot.  At this point all vehicles, which will all be located at the game's starting point, will become unlocked.  Some might even decide to use a helicopter for a bird's-eye view, but if vehicles are left behind, perhaps someone on the run will circle back around and grab a vehicle for more mobility.  One thing to consider: if hunting alone, there's always the possibility that the hunted are working together, and instead of finding one target you may be met with three heavily armed pissed off "deer."  And when fleeing, do you stay close and wait for an opportunity to pick off a few of the hunters as they get mobilized and risk the rath of those left standing, or do you try to find a safe spot to hole up before you develop a better plan.  Do you enlist the help of your fellow hunted or do you risk going at it alone?

Depending on how realistic the game feels, this type of gameplay may bring out true real-life tendencies of players.  Are some more interested in working as a team, do they question their own skill and hope to find a protector of sorts, or will we have loners that don't want to feel hampered by a bothersome tag-along, worrying that the tag-along will draw too much attention or give away their position.  

It has potential if we can get the feel and the gameplay right.  

I had a lot more fun when we did it in the reverse, with very few heavily armed and many not quite as well armed since teamwork became more important, but I guess that's more like the zombie idea.

I love the demo, (camera issues aside) and it kind of reminds me of that old ps2 game Ring of Red for some reason.  Gonna buy day 1 just for the fact that I will be able to play a Strategy RPG on the box.

Once you get another tv or the vga adapter so you can play while the wifey watches tv Tongue

I'm going to purchase this game day 1, the only thing to decide is what pre-order bonus to get.  War Elephant, Rhino, or some Bow?
I would've preferred a rhino, but the ease of ordering from Gamestop won out.  I've read that you can only get the rhino from pre-ordering in the store at best buy and there aren't any close enough for me.

Combined with the unlikelyhood of me hitting level 40 anyway, I'll take the mammoth

Although this forum is largely made up of 360 users, there will be a lot of mp action on the ps3... we're just not as vocal about it   icon_biggrin

I'm confused how some people keep making claims, not backing them up, then accusing others of making claims and not backing them up when they didn't.

Incredibly short-sighted people that are completely full of themselves, good times.

Vietnam, the first Gulf War and WWI aren't a case of a pre-emptive war, since a war was already happening numbnuts.  Our involvement was to aid allies and/or to prevent further aggressions. 

Unbreakable seems to have some serious issues with basic definitions of terms if not outright facts. 

Define a Blockade

Define a Pre-emptive War

Then maybe we can see where you're coming from and you won't sound so g'damn crazy when you talk

It's like you randomly substitute the definition that suits you to whatever words you choose.

Btw, my definition of 'crazy' above is 'not well informed' as opposed to 'bat shit crazy'  finger

Do any of you?

How can we expect corporations to do the same?

gellar

We cant and we shouldnt, but some people just cant stand if a company makes what they think is 'too much', but will never give a definition of what they consider is enough money to allow a company to make.   Its easier to make the companies or in this case the republican party the villians in everything.

I love it so far except for the camera.  Just in the first 10 minutes of me playing I wanted to rip the heart out of the person who thought it was acceptable.

It's frustrating enough to kill it which is what I was afraid of when it was first mentioned that the game had camera issues.

Once you have the red dot, if you are precise in your aiming it's the easiest gun for headshots.  I've done greater than 50% headshots with it on some nights and for awhile it was my favorite gun.

This one has that shot you're talking about as well as a lot of other amazing things.

The one in particular that blows me away (aside from running around on vacant clearing whole rooms with the .50 cal) is on Crash when he jumps up and snipes over the fence and hits the guy that was falling from the stairs of the 3 story.  So he's airborne, his target is airborne and he snipes him.   icon_eek

I want!

heh, the end of this one he gets a 3 for 1 with one bullet.

I just logged two accounts into a private match and went to 70 kills and it was less than 33% of the time I could get it to work.  Very frustrating when it doesn't, but pretty amazing when it does.

It's very hard to do, but not as hard as it may seem since he's basically taking advantage of the auto-aim and the way it works.  Sadly, without the acog on the m40 it isn't a guaranteed one shot kill so I'm killing my k/d trying it out.  I'll get a hit then die.

I'd love to try this out in a private match though smile

Oh, I have no doubt that most people don't know about the change in developers, even if they can sense a change in quality.  So CoD5 is setup to do huge business just on the back of CoD4's success (though the switch back to WW2 could hurt them).

I dunno. There are Infinity Ward logos on every single loading screen in COD4.  They went out of there way to get their name into your brain.

BTW, their logo wasn't on the loading screens when the game first came out, those were patched in at some point.

It's sad, but the first thing I'll actually be doing is jumping in on some of the multiplayer modes.

I'll probably be doing the same thing.  I imagine everyone will get bombarded by invites as soon as they log in that night.

I don't see that happening, I think most of us will want to become acclimated with the new controls first and experience a few missions before braving the online front.
I'll also be going straight to MP.  How would you not see it happening when the two posts preceding yours and the one following all say they are? slywink

Let me qualify ATB's excellent comments above by pointing out that a post-patch AK/ACOG combo is a very versatile setup. Close quarters with Steady Aim is a piece of cake, and you can hit targets at long range if you squeeze your shots off one at a time. After the patch, the AK is the best gun in the game.

The RPD still qualifies for best gun imo, thing is cheap and easy.

I'm truly amazed at the difference it has made in all of my games.

In Forza 2, I now know exactly where other cars are in relation to me and rarely cut people off.

In COD4, several times I've turned and shot someone because of the directional sound, it's amazing in this game.

Rock Band, It's not just loud, it's loud, clear, crisp and has great tone.  Feels like being at a concert.

Count me in the camp that hits the BACK button on the guitar for overdrive.  Like GH3, when you get into Hard and Expert.. tilting the guitar can throw me off.. I've just gotten used to hitting the back button.  I also found my guitar is very finnicky as to when it works with tilt.

On the explorer and the PS2 I always used the button for star power, but it doesn't feel comfortable to me on the strat.  I do get irritated by it activating on it's own sometimes and other times not at all though.

I'll be playing a bit of Forza and RB as well, but mostly COD4. 

Send me a msg if you want to play.

BTW, those of you that heard me bitching the last couple days about how I tried knifing people and then they turn around and knife me, it ends up there is a glitch with the G3 and M16 and silencers that makes the knife lunge not connect sometimes. frown  I wasn't going crazy.

I realize you just got the system and might not want to hear upgrade suggestions just yet, but I'd suggest replacing your vid card as soon as you can with a full blown 8800 (insert suffix here).  The x600 version of any nvidia card always have some performance issues compared to the x800 of the same series.

You probably won't notice for awhile since it's such an upgrade from where you were before, but I just got an 8800 GTX and it's amazing compared to an 8600.  I actually preferred my 7800 GTX to the 8600
