Call of Duty: Ghosts Trailer Defended By Community Manager

"The Call of Duty series is well know, some might say, infamous, for its over the top set pieces.

Call of Duty's attempts to constantly up the ante when it comes to these explosion filled, adrenalin inducing moments have led to mockery from some quarters as these set pieces increasingly stray into the unbelievable.

It was to the delight of those detractors then to find that the latest Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer gave us Call of Duty, IN SPACE!

According to Activision community manager Dan Amrich, however, the scenes of orbital bombardment that we see in the trailer are not as ridiculous as some might expect." (Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

People moan at COD for being the same each year but when they try do something a little different they get yelled at :/

I thought you couldn't fire guns in space, but then I read this.

Hmm but I figured since the bullet has a small(or big, relatively) propulsion from the initial explosion, it should go in space. Wouldn't bullets be even more effective in space since there's no air friction, resistance, or (significant) gravity compared to Earth's crust?

@ExCest

Heavy's link explains it well. the frictionless nature of the vacuum in space would allow the bullet to travel forever, but its momentum would be far less in space due to the lack of gravity. the higher the value of gravity, the more effective the bullet would be I think.

They try something a little different.

Good game developers do not do little, they do big

Battlefield 3 and 4 are not that different for PC gamers.

Its the "little" different part that we are yelling at.

Fish AI.

I swear new games are making fun of "Fish AI" like Pay Day 2 and Shadow Warrior.

Is that ArtiFISHal Intelligence?

I thought the trailer was pretty good. And I might pick it up once the price drops. Just for the campaign.

Those rods crashing in from orbit was from G.I.Joe Retaliation. I'll play the single player of Ghosts, but not the multiplayer. I don't honestly think they did anything too drastic over BO2.

Rehab Kuwait? Lol

it doesn't matter if you can fire in the space or not. But shooting in the space is unnecessary I think.

"There are explosions, and its in space, and there are guns, and BOOM, SPLASH, AHHHH, CRUSH, ARGH, GRRRR, DUNNANANANANA, KAPOW!

What's there not to love?"

Did I really see a dog take down a helicopter?
Swiggins  +   321d ago
Damn right you did.

If I can't command Riley to take down a Tank next, well then color me disappointed.
testo6  +   321d ago
don't be surprise if they release a trailer with Russian Fish killing dogs and taking down F-35's and aircraft Carriers....

I can't wait for the dramatic ending when you're on the ground with blurred vision and a shaky camera as the main villain is stands above pointing a gun at you.

Just when you think it's game over, your dog who you presumed was dead because of the prior mission, comes out of nowhere and bites the dude causing him to drop his gun. As he's struggling with the dog, you gather enough strength to crawl towards the gun, pick it up, and shoot the bad guy in the head.

The dog comes rushing towards you and begins licking your wounds as you wait for an evac. You're then picked up and credits begin to roll.

Are you a wizard?

O.O
Mystogan  +   321d ago
Definitely a wizard.

This is like people watching movies who want to pick apart everything that may not be possible in real life. If I want to be confined by reality, I'll go outside my house. I don't mind when things go beyond our own limits in a fictional game or movie. But this is COD, so a large segment of people will complain about something just because its COD.

The guy at 1:47 is Ghost.

This trailer, though preposterous in some areas (dog attacking hovering helicopter pilot) has actually caught my attention. Up until this point I was uninterested in this game. The last COD I've bought was the first Black Ops. I have bought every other iteration prior. I am now more optimistic about the plot and SP since that is what interests me the most. I really hope that for all of the ridiculousness the story is indeed plausible and engrossing. It may be a day 2 purchase if the reviews are favorable.
RickHiggity  +   321d ago
I just really hated the quote at 1:42. That's just propaganda imo.
N4GJD  +   321d ago
Black Ops 2; enough said.

Absolutely terribly designed campaign with ridiculous set pieces, and competitively unplayable multiplayer due to massive amounts of lag compensation.
xHoii  +   320d ago
Really?
People still make "Fish ai" jokes till this day? Wow
