    Question MW3 Free Weekends - Is the game that bad?

    Well, this is the second time I hear/see that MW3 have a free weekend. (And for me, the game is old and boring so..)
    But, do they really have to give free weekends to get players? Really...

    Well, what can I say. This is how I see a desperate action to save MW3.
    But, in my eyes. They fail so hard. (makes the game look like shit to give free weekends here and now.)

    They should rather allow trail accounts. (Like you could only play a MAX amount of time each week. And that you could only play some few maps and stuff...)


    Well, what you guys think?
    Or did I just make you think about it?

    It is silly with free weekends... they make people buy the game, because all games are fun the first week. But Activision/IW (and Treyarch partially) does everything to sell more games.

    That is just business though. There are plenty of businesses that is all about lying, which is even more silly.

    MW3 can't be saved. It is so noob friendly (I know a lot of people would prefer this) and you can't be that superior guy, rushing around and raping with an Olympia, as you could in BO.

    Trial accounts would be much the same in my opinion. A little less silly though and i would accept that.

    They don't really need to make any kind trial/test thing, they have 3 CoD games in the top 6 most played games on Xbox for the last several weeks. And MW3 doesn't get better by being free for a short time.

    Title should be: "MW3 Free Weekends - Is the game that bad?" (singular, there is only one game)

    Well, with the Trail, I could just get the trail and just use that. (so I could just make a new account every time I got banned. So I can try what ever i want )
    No I haven't been banned yet. But would be useful for new hackers


    PS: I am not a grammar freak :P
    (Also, that is 1 of my problems. I am supposed to get special teacher. But Norway suck so the school forgot that part X,x)

    I think they should make a F2P game with buying options. Just like all other f2p FPS games out there. I think It would be a great idea, but you know... Activision or whoever runs the COD series, they will never do such thing.

    The game has not changed not a little bit from MW2. All same shit, only new killstreaks, maybe some little new guns and new maps. And people buy their shit. I hope their company dies. From what I think, Activision is already dieing and will continue putting free weekends for more people to buy their shit.

    Well, BO2 seems to be very good
    Even tho, it kinda remind me of BF3.

    I hope that BO2 will take CoD to the next level we all have been waiting for

    me 2! mw3 gets boring with the time...
    but i like the fact that the story won't be liniear:
    quote of a german gaming site:

    One of the most fundamental innovations in the Call of Duty series is a break with the previous linearity. In the series history and output are always given so far. Not so in Black Ops 2: With the interspersed in the campaign, special operations, "Strike Force" it affects the game progresses and the resulting ends. So there are multiple paths through the first shoot-war.

    but i've the feeling that it'll need many updates to work how a game these days should work. Fu Activison and your "let's publish one cod a year".

    I don't really see the problem with this? I mean, letting people try the game before they buy it -- how is that a bad thing?

    So? Does that automatically make it a bad thing? If so, why?

    It looks desperate that's why. Especially with the headline "Black Ops Outselling MW3" hanging over it right now. Free Weekend is Free Hacking to most people. I enjoy the n00b season but it looks desperate still.
