i dont know i see a few problems when reading the specializations. For example in strong and powerful u see that there is a nanofiber vest you see it absorbs small amount of damage from each bullet receive with the exception of armor piercing rounds so if someone has armor piercing rounds ur dead.

Problem 2 is camouflage it no longer hides you from turrets so if some one puts a turret you are dead.

Problem 3 Integrated Radar
Enemies identified on your radar are outlined in the first person view. In the campaign u see you have to be close to your enemies to see their outline. By the time u see their outline ur going to be shot dead in multiplayer since you have to be near the enemy not across the map to see their outline.

Problem 4
the UAV only last 10 seconds after that no more. You would have to remember which direction the enemy is. But since he is moving all the time thats not gonna work. THe UAV is mc3 worked like a charm

But for me the first class that is worth trying would be fast and incisive.

Would an iPad 4 bring a noticeable gaming differnece compared to the iPad 2? My #1 nightmare would be to download MC4 on release, only to find out my iPad 2 doesn't run it good enough.

IMO yes. You'll get all the effects shown on the hands on plus probably a few more, retina graphics and an good framerate. Look at it this way: the iPad 4 has a GPU twice as powerful as the PS Vita, which is supposed to be almost as powerful as the PS3.

@matrixhunter nerfing perks is a good idea. UAV in MC3 was a damn blackbird(like in black ops). To see real time enemy positions for just 3 kills is just unfair. Just reducing the time is dumb too, they should just make it swipe the map like in cod since that's their source anyway.
Outline for enemies is just a bad idea outright. It was bad enough in Bad Company 2 and that didn't outline enemies, just a red icon above their heads. I guess it's a way to encourage silencers.

Okay, thank you. I am heavily leaning on upgrading. BTW, do you if it is against the rules to advertise a sale in your signature?

Guys, I'm a bit lazy to research right now, but, could you recommend and android phone that has around the same graphical power than the iPhone 5? cause I understand that they're significantly cheaper than the apple products.

I figured that I don't want to enjoy the upcoming games with the bare minimum that I have (iPodT4), specially when most of them are dropping the support early for the iPT4.

Anyway, so, any recommendations? thanks in advance.

For an android similar to an iPhone in terms of graphic processing, it will be the same price. So no it won't be cheaper unless you really need expandable storage. This depends on your carrier too. For AT&T, several options. Some new LG phone came out for $50 and the One X for $99 and possibly free. The LG has same specs as the One X and expandable storage but no upgrade to jellybean. For Verizon, the HTC DNA ( $199) or the Droid Razr M ($99) are equally good. HTC has a quad core processor and the Razr M has expandable storage. For Sprint, the HTC Evo 4G LTE ( $199-$99)is a great option. Galaxy S 3 could be possibly free. for T-Mobile, the Galaxy S 3 is for free. Hurry before it is not. Off contract device, your best bet is the Nexus 4 ($299-$349). The majority of devices have a S4 and two of them have a S4 pro. Can't really get the greatest and latest without ponying up the cash. The iPhone 4S is o.k. For $99 but then again you wanted android. Android is cheaper if you want to get a 600 MHz device. Realize that android devices probably won't get the fancy sun flare and will not have particle effects. Those are reserved for iPhone ( I mean look at MC3)

Unless Gameloft changes something, they will always prefer iOS over everything else. Alot of big games and updates will come to iOS before they come to Android, and there will be more iOS apps because it is easier to develop an app for iOS than for the multitude of android systems.

Third rule from the bottom.

OT: Multiplayer vids look cool. Hopefully the wait isn't too much longer.
