7 months later, I gotta point out to Lonescu the following: Rifle protection shields are, according to the article, MOUNTED ON WHEELS for ease of mobility.

Yeah, what you're runnin' around with there is, at best, gonna stop that knife. Maybe a shotgun blast.

That game just... gah. Just gah.

Not the ones in game, though. Those are just for show.

While I agree that Riot Shields (made of Polycarbonate) shouldn't provide the amount of protection as the shields in MW2 do, I think that the shields used in Modern Warfare 2 are actually Ballistic Shields (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballistic_shield), which are commonly mistaken for Riot Shields

Yeah, pretty much. I was totally turned off to MW2 by the whole pot reference thing.

4. so do other npc troops in WW2 games

5. in WW1 you can take down big ass zeppelin and less airstrike drama

2. Defenses sucked? you're not a mindless drone running to the enemy hail of fire do ya? and remember, old COD and MoH have trenches in them, and it worked.

3. Commanders sucked? for long as I remember a WW fps starring us fighting enemies, not waiting for some officers ordering you around

@hey-nony-nonymous

It never stop some game developers in making games right? from your argument it's like this

1. Weapon? It can be done, I've played a pc game called outlaws, old western themed fps from lucasarts, and it's excellent in utilizing old weapons (and remember, this is before WW1)

Would YOU want to play as the French in WW1? Or the Bulgarians? CAN YOU NAME ONE GUN FROM BULGARIA MR FREEMAN? I THOUGHT NOT.

@ anonymoose Couple of reasons there are "no" WW1 shooters. I don't have enough room to detail them all, so i'll summarize. 1. Weapons sucked. 2. Defenses Sucked 3. Commanders sucked. 4. Troops were all cannon fodder. 5. Air combat was pretty boss though.

A ww1 shooter would actually be interesting, it just wouldn't be based solely on combat. It would be like Touhou.

WW1 can be made into game really, if you see soldiers modified with trench battle equipments you can imagine a game where you sneaking into enemy trenches and hectic close combats in trenches and tunnels, Like Anzac Vs Turkish Army in Gallipoli Campaign.

here a pic of trench armors

The funny thing is, you get the Blunt Trauma title by using the shield.

CS will only be a good game when they turn the awp into a copy of sniper's rifle, so you cant kill someone with a shot at their fingers.

He forgot to add the 'bunnyhopping' dual shotgun wielding soldiers in close quarters
It goes like this:
- keep sprinting till you face an enemy, usually when you just cross a corner.
- stop sprinting/just run and jump
- aim somewhere in the neighbourhood of the enemy
- press LMB and RMB
- win

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought with, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

And about ww1 shooters, no smart company ain't gonna risk making a game which basic is concentrated on sitting in a trench for 3 months and than walking your ass 200 meters until the machinegun mows you down ;)

They'd have to invent a really funny way to respawn to make it playable :)

For everyone saying the shield is a cheap tactic...just use semtax/grenade launcher..problem solved.

Looks like you guys are looking for some more strategy. Go looking for the really obscure games. They're often really strategic. >_>

Thats what most shooters consit of today.... spawn, run to enemy, die, spawn, run to enemy die, repeat. Hes saying the change of scenery would be a breath of fresh air compared to WWII all the time.

Anonymoose: No WW1 shooters? The reason: Because in WW1 the main tatic of war was to jump out of your trench and charge across mines, barbed wire, and machine gun firing arcs. The game would consist of You spawn, charge, die, spawn, charge, die, spawn, charge, die ad infinite.

Someone wearing a tactical shield? in real life blast the shield with tons of heavy firepower, in games, shoot their legs
Merc

Riot shield doesnt work like that. Even in CS. if you got the riot shield around you you would still take damage from rifles and other shit. awp I think would take like a quarter health.

so when will modders remake cs 1.6 into modern warfare 2 and give all those begging pc users the dedication they need.
SRG

[url=#user_comment_18470]@tehspiah[/url] so we get surf maps and zombie games? wait no dedicated servers so it would be 1.6 but blander.

Tactical Shields! Haha. I remember lots of fun with those. We need to play more 1.6 at LANs...

It'd be great if there was a game in which you were just as expendable as the next power-armor clad space marine.
