EA details post-beta Medal of Honor changes, nothing is as you remember it

Hey, remember Medal of Honor?

No you don’t. Not anymore.

This may shock you, but a videogame publisher – in this case, EA – actually used beta feedback to alter a game before release. And here we thought “beta” was just Greek for “free demo.”

The end result? It’s like tapping some guy on the back who looks like one of your friends from behind, but it’s not awkward when he turns around, because he’s actually more handsome and way cooler than your friend.

EA community manager Matthew Pruitt outlined the changes over on the PlayStation Blog, but here’s the gist: revamped graphics, weapon pick-ups for ammo, better balancing on support actions, tweaks for every weapon, and tons more.

Click through the link for the full list of changes, then find that little file in your brain titled “Preconceived notions about Medal of Honor” and click delete. Yes, Fox News, that means you too.

    the question is will it make a difference or will it still be shit?

    Wow that really did shock me! Used… feedback… from beta testers… Well there’s a first time for everything. Trouble with most betas is that the main code is already written so it’s hard to change core game structure around very much at that stage.
