Precisely. There is nothing at all wrong with observing historical reality. There's nothing wrong with having women serving as frontline soldiers in your fantastical reimagination of WW2 either.
But it is most definitely "Not OK" to try and use blatant bullying and shaming tactics (e.g. "uneducated") to insult people who acknowledge the composition of the armed forces that actually saw combat in WW2. The way this was done by EA/Dice indicates this was a planned controversy from the beginning, and that type of sexist marketing tactic is reprehensible.
I don't have a problem with them making a new and different entry into the series. I'm not a huge fallout fan to begin with. I had gotten my hopes up from the reveal trailer that it might be something I would want to play with my friends, but further information is showing that it's probably not something I'm interested in pursuing.
Ah yeah fair enough, i'm just used to reading threads upon threads of fans raging out cause its not single player, and im just like common, everyone screams for change and unique stuff, they try something new and everyone loses it, even though it looks awesome(for me). and they even said the next fallout is a traditional single player. people.. sigh..
Using the term 'realism' is always going to fall flat in a discussion about battlefield.
However, I suspect the word people are grasping for is authenticity. And what Dice are delivering for Battlefield V (and BF1) is about as far away from an authentic portrayal of those two conflicts as you can get. But that's just my opinion. I don't doubt that there are many naysayers purely because there are playable women in the game. For me, there have been issues dating back over several of the last games.
I'm not going to get it because I haven't enjoyed a battlefield game since BF2. And that's okay. I'll just look for entertainment elsewhere.
Agreed... I was hoping for a 'fallout with friends' kind of deal. But this sounds pretty discouraging.
seems you both didn't watch any of E3 or you would know they said there is a full questline, robobrain from the vault is your quest giver. Also god forbid they make one different style game in the series.
Honestly, I couldn't help but laugh at this part.
It's closer to the truth to say that everyone who bought into it are waiting on the universe.
Unless there is a deeper, more philosophical meaning behind it. As in your universe consists of waiting... then it's 100% accurate.
"You're waiting for the Universe" is a bit closer I think.
I'm pretty much done with the Total War franchise. The aspects that I most enjoyed were streamlined right out of the games starting with Shogun 2. While that one was still enjoyable, Rome 2 was the last straw. And from what I've seen it's only gotten worse.
Now, if they could go back to the mechanics from Rome 1 and/or Medieval 2 and iron out some of the issues those had, I'd be back on board. But unfortunately, the games just continue to get more 'arcade-y' with each release.
