How Call of Duty: Ghosts is ‘Shaking Things Up’

IGN - How Call of Duty: Ghosts is “shaking things up.”

The story is too old to be commented.

Originally, I wasn't sure how much credibility an IGN article on Call Of Duty could possess. After I read it, I felt like this was IGN's annual endorsement for the overrated shooter.

Is call of duty shaking thing up?

So cute! What kind of dog is that???

In all honesty, I have no clue, but here's an exclusive photo I snagged from CoD: Ghosts. This one is a German Shepherd. /s

Yea, shaking things up alright. With the same engine in use since 2007. That's only a year after the ps3 launched.

True next gen indeed...

Oh and don't forget the brand new tech included!!!!

I don't even understand why people think dissing Call Of Duty is a thing worth doing. Call Of Duty knows what Call Of Duty wants to be. Call Of Duty's fans know what they want Call Of Duty to be. Call Of Duty is not going to stop being Call Of Duty until Call Of Duty stops profiting off the Call Of Duty name. So everyone should stop asking Call Of Duty to stop being Call Of Duty because Call Of Duty will continue to be Call Of Duty for the foreseeable future. If you don't like Call Of Duty, don't play Call Of Duty and shut up about Call Of Duty. You aren't cool for making fun of Call Of Duty anymore. The first rule about Call Of Duty is...?

Call Of Duty.

But some of us remember when it was actually fun and worthwhile with CoD 4, while the newer ones since (excluding MW2 it was half-great) have run the franchise into the ground.

It's sad really. And what's more sad is people lining up to buy the same crap over and over.

People buy Madden every year. There are still Dynasty Warriors games coming out. FIFA is one of the best-selling games in the world. Yet somehow, Call Of Duty is the only one that catches heat. It's the Madden of shooters and that's okay - it is what it is.

Yes, I miss Call Of Duty 4 just as much as anyone else, but it's time to move on and find a new game to play. People are just being bitter and childish at this point.

To draw a comparison - hating on Call Of Duty is like hating on Justin Bieber: it's played out, he's still selling out shows and getting his toes licked by hundreds of groupies, and he's not going anywhere soon. Just ignore it and enjoy what you like.

FreakdoutKid1989d ago

how many times you wrote call of duty?

Lockhart1989d ago

Did you guys hear about the new FIFA coming out though? Word is that they changed the shade of green they're using this year.

Utalkin2me1989d ago


Can't really compare COD to sports games. Football is football and not really much you can do with it. But a military shooter is a blank canvas and has a broad spectrum of what you could do. Just look at BF VS COD. Both military shooters and both polar opposites in a sense. You could not do that with sports games.

snipes1011989d ago

As a joke to speak on how tired I am of hearing about it. You like it or you don't - thing's aren't going to go back to the way they were.

Point taken. But then Dynasty Warriors...

papashango1989d ago

my beef is when games come out and get destroyed with negative reviews for being something that's been done before, or more of the same.

Every year you know what you're getting with CoD...yet every year it gets a free pass with the big sites because of Activisions advertising revenue. So with me it's no longer about the game. But about how it's blatantly exposing the game journalism industry for what it is.

$$$ = high scores....Not a lawyer but isn't there laws against misdirecting consumers like this?

snipes1011989d ago


And what proof do you have that these reviews are being paid for? Activision doesn't have the best track record, but I'm sure whatever it is you are speaking about is isolated. I just don't see this happening on the massive scale you are implying.

More of the same is not bad in every case. It's just people want CoD to be different every time...for whatever reason. CoD is just a digital blood sport at this point, and just like Madden, you can't really change that fundamentally, so I don't see why CoD should be given low scores for being more of the same.

Do I especially like it? No. Does what I say make sense to me? Yes.

USA0071989d ago

For those who say sports games are different than COD. What about fighting games? Look how long they've been here and they still are the exact same! I also dislike COD, but it is the only game that is stable enough to continue to hold FPS tournaments with

@Utalkin2me BF and COD aren't polar opposites. I would put ARMA and COD as opposites

What do you really expect?

Remember all that hullaballoo CoD4 (and, more recently, SpecOps) raised among all the game "journalists" who were so stunned that an FPS could deliver a narrative that wasn't clumsy, juvenile and stupid?

HammadTheBeast1989d ago

The one thing that came to my mind while playing The Last of Us was that there were dogs with proper AI present..... and fish that swam away....

Also, round scopes ftw.

AngelicIceDiamond1989d ago (Edited 1989d ago )

I'm not here to troll but what exactly is it shaking up? What are the brand new features that are game changers?

What exactly are they doing that'll rival BF4? 60 FPS 64 player on huge maps on next gen console?

At this point the greatest feature COD could have is dedicated servers.

I don't get it but, whatever.

CrossingEden1989d ago

didn't know that this was a battlefield 4 comparison article -_-

KillrateOmega1989d ago

"What exactly are they doing that'll rival BF4? 60 FPS 64 player on huge maps on next gen console?"

Nothing, at least not to my current knowledge. Call of Duty if good for what it is and dedicated servers are nice, but it's hard to deny that BF4, and the Battlefield series as a whole, offer a higher quality of video game.

Benjammin251989d ago

What the f**k do you mean "are they shaking it up?'' Look at that dog and try telling me their not shaking things up. Look at those genius fishies swim out of the way and tell me their not shaking things up. Look at the soldier vault a chest high wall and tell me their not shaking things up. You...pah! You wouldn't know the meaning of shaking things up if it bit you on the ass.

Benjammin251989d ago

I know it's dreadful that I have to point this out on the Internet, but I was being sarcastic in that previous post.

KillrateOmega1989d ago

I know you were being sarcastic. However, when you are trying to be sarcastic on the internet, the typical means of getting it across is by putting '/s' at the end of sentence.

For example:

Call of Duty: Ghosts from a technical perspective is infinitely more impressive than BF4.

so basically every other shooter has done it already

(com'on, someone was gonna say it)

aLucidMind1989d ago

The most innovation we're going to see is on the game case; for once, the man is not walking towards you!

Oh, and fish AI.

hiptanaka1989d ago

They're definitely "shaking things up" with that exact same engine.
