SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Bruins and Canadiens. Red Sox and Yankees. Celtics and Lakers. Battlefield and Call of Duty? That’s right, rivalries are everywhere. I myself, an avid supporter of the Call of Duty franchise, am now playing for the other team. As an online gamer, there is no contest. Now you’re thinking 'what's this guy talking about…' but let’s look at the facts.
I find that most people around me are stuck in their old ways. Call of Duty: Black Ops, like its counterparts, is a very simple game. Sure you can upgrade weapons and unlock perks but come on! Run around. Shoot people. Win. That’s it. Players are confined to their small maps and over dramatized game play. The series has had phenomenal success but I just don’t enjoy it anymore. Plus, Activision has been a little antsy about releasing any teasers regarding their latest project, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, even though it is expected to be released in November of this year.
Now, Battlefield. Oh, Battlefield, though hast open thine eyes to the world! Sure it has the same kinds of upgrades and game styles BUT players can also hop in tanks, helicopters, jeeps, atvs, turrets, anything they can find to demolish their opponents. The environment is completely destructible and don't even get me started about C4. Players choose between Medic, Engineer, Assault and Scout, each serving a distinct purpose whether it is supplying ammo or reviving a fallen soldier. GameTrailers claimed "Purists will appreciate that you must earn every kill." The newest entry, Battlefield 3, is coming out and it looks RIDICULOUS!! The graphics are super smooth and the game play looks awesome. Sure Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will always have a place close to my heart but with time comes change and its coming Fall of 2011.
