Video Thirst: Operation Flashpoint: Red River First Gameplay Trailer’s Rather Mundane, Boring, Tired

Man, I’ve seen this way too many times, but you might like it, so it’s past the break for your quenching pleasure. The first gameplay footage of Operation Flashpoint: Red Rvier from Codemasters is what this is, and of course there are guns, bombs, U.S. good, world bad type of scenario.

Hit the link.

Video Thirst: New, Please?

Sometimes there comes a point when you’ve had enough. Enough of the shooter milking. I’m totally tired of it; not the genre, just the amount of FPS titles that are, or coming, on the market. And I wouldn’t have been so perturbed if they brought something new and exciting to the table – but it’s the same ole’ thing.

Nothing to see here, at least for me.

Quench it if you wish to:

Operation Flashpoint: Red River will come available in 2011 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game’s set in Tajikistan: “a strategically and politically important central Asian country bordered by both Afghanistan and China,” according to the Codemasters.

    that was a very boring commercial. It needed to show more gameplay. I like the ofp games because they are realistic, but this was a quite boring commercial.

    Boring isn’t even the word; just plain out bland and tired.

    hated dragon rising so i seriously doubt ill pick this one up.
    i loved the openness of it, for once we get a war game thats not a linear corridor shooter.
    cough KZ2, cough BC, cough COD.
    thing that put me off is the game forces you to take out enemies from a distance, because if you go in close you will last probably 2 nano seconds!
    ok, fine, so you take enemies out from a distance.
    but how are you suppose to do that when 99.9999999999999% of the time the game starts you off with a LMG, or a machiene gun without a scope.
    last time i checked LMGs, or MGs a sniper do not make!
    MG and LMGs or SAWs make terrorable machine guns because of there recoil spreading bullets all over the place, everywhere besides what you want, and have poor range the bullets cant fly very far.
    so how the %$#@ are you suppose to take enemies out from a distance when i have weapons which can only take enemies out from closer range?
    i love the idea of the game, i love the squad mechanics having to look after your squad, i love the 1 shot kills, but you have to make it practical.
    its not practical forcing players to take enemies out from a distance, than making it nigh on impossible to do so!
    if you want me to take out enemies from a distance you need to give me a sniper, or at least a rifle with a scope!
    not a gun which is designed and built to be a CQC weapon.
    sniping with a LMG, might as well ask me to snipe with a frigging shotgun!
