Which game?

16 posts in this topic

I am going to improve my gaming and get a PS3 soon. I was looking at the games, and I am stuck between getting COD WAW, COD 4, Resistance2. Which one is better?

I would go for COD 5, and look for the older COD 4 on [YouNeedAuthorization] or local pawn shops. GS has used copies as well but they are usually overpriced.

COD4 was game of the year and I think they sell it for around 30-40 bucks new. Are you looking for a 1st person shooter (COD,R2) or a 3rd person shooter (SOCOM)? I still play COD 4 quite a bit but have heard mixed reviews on the new COD 5 game. I've played far too many WW2 shooters in my life and I don't think I need another. I've always liked the SOCOM series. There's so many good games coming out from September into the Holidays that I have a hard time saving money for other things like Ice equipment. Good choice on the PS3, you'll enjoy it.

I vote for COD4. Should be able to score an auction site copy pretty cheap.

I like COD 5 also, although I agree that WW2 shooters are worn out.

CoD WaW is not CoD 5, think of it as like GTA Vice City. Built on the same engine, more of a step sideways (and IMO slightly backwards) than it is a step forward. The next installment will likely be dubbed 5, to the confusion of many...

Actually it has been confirmed that the numbering system has been dropped from this line, starting with this title.

Just curious why you think this has been a step backwards? Sideways I would agree with, but why mess with success?

COD WAW is a great game you will enjoy yes it is WW2, but with killer graphics and also the online is sweet. But as stated you should look at Cod4 on an auction site also. And RFOM 1 is now $20 in the classics aisle.

Just the fact that they put vehicles back into play. Vehicle play just has never been done well, on any game that I can recall. They are either imbalanced and to powerful (the darkwalker on UT3 is the peak of this) or so weak they aren't worth getting in.

i actually like how they did the tanks in the new game. The tanks can be very effective but at the same time if your enemy has a clue you're not invinceable in them.

Socom has been best online game for playstation for a long long time, but the new ones isn't that good, i dont think. I was ones ranted in the top 100 players on Socom 3 for about a year untill i stop playing. I play the new one but i like the older socoms better. I will be getting the new COD when it comes out since everyone on here always tell me to get it!!!! smile Is the new COD out??

I will have to go and take a look at it. I'm going to see if Game stops will give me a good deal on the new socom i bought a few weeks ago and then get the new COD. Most of you play on 360 right??

Where do you guys get your rankings off and post them on here?? like jpz has on the bottom of his post! Or is that a 360 thing?

CB, it's only for Xbox.....I'm going to look for a PS one but I don't believe they have a banner thingy. I have WaW on PS3 man, eventually maybe 360.

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
