Eminem has shared the video for “Survival”, his contribution to the soundtrack for Call Of Duty: Ghosts. Or, should we say, here’s a new commercial for Call Of Duty: Ghosts (Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Eminem expect to be hated and down the talked on n4g because you made this vid with COD Ghosts instead of BF4. Fortunately in the real world none of it will matter, you will still be respected and COD Ghosts will outsell BF4 as usual because more gamers prefer fun over graphics.

Whatever Concept bro, if you are BF fan and know that you dont like Em or COD why are you here? Oh thats right cause that's what haters do they follow others just to talk crap which they think somehow makes them "cooler". Grow up.

Eminem isn't as great as he used to be, but he's still far better than Ice Cube. Ice Cube hasn't been any good since the early nineties. He was great up until Lethal Injection, then swiftly fell off.

He's still a good rapper, but his edge was lost a long time ago.

Well that was a bit of a crappy sell out. I say crappy as you can't really tell it is COD except for the logo appearing occasionally. If your going to advertise a game with your music video then do it properly and go full game footage. I couldn't tell what I was seeing in the background

it has a lot of gameplay behind Eminem and the masks and the spray paint in the beginning.

If he had anymore of the gameplay in his video it wouldn't be an Eminem video, it would be the COD trailer. Dude stop nitpicking cause you're not a music director.

Those motivational fight songs are some of Eminem's best. The CoD footage in the background made it annoying.

wtf are you watching, there is no quick scope clips going of in the bg lol, also I don´t see the hate of Eminem doing this,

first of all he makes less money then be4 with making songs so why cry when he tries to be commercial with a music video.

Can't wait to see all the reviewers who gave Beyond low scores because of bad writing lather Ghosts in a tongue bath and hand it 9's and 10's. Game journalism is a joke.
iamnsuperman  +   854d ago
No matter how off topic your comment is I must answer this. Story design must be the same as to how the game plays. Take Call of Duty which is often likened to an action flick. The story isn't deep which doesn't matter as not every story needs to be deep, just as long as the game reflect that. They have massive set pieces which drive the story forward. The plot is just there for some logical structure (if they fail on this last point the game falls apart). It isn't dialogue heavy as it was designed that way

It is always a big risk going for a more meaningful story/story focus. Beyond is (or I assume will be as I have not played it yet) a very dialogue driven game and such needs to have a set story strucute that works (character and story development, setting, fluid dialogue, brilliant acting.....) which sells the story that was made

You are correct. I often see this misunderstanding usually when some fan doesnt like the review of a game he hasnt played yet. I always wonder why the simple concept that you don't review a fps games story like you would a story driven game or you dont review an arcade, indie game, like a AAA blockbuster, or do people really think a indie game should lose points for 2d graphics? No, you grade games on whether or not it measures up to other great games within the genre, surpass them, or on rare occasions stands on its own in a particular category.

Song sucks. Berzerk> Survival, seriously.
This is just a COD commercial, couldn't go on after the first minute. Come on Em...
MidnytRain  +   854d ago
Are you kidding? How is this lower than Berzerk? Their styles are entirely different anyways. Berzerk is much more Shady than Survival.
EdoubleD  +   854d ago
Eh, I guess that's why I like it more? I don't know. I just can't get into this one, as I am more a fan of Em's old works.

But all together, it was the 'COD' vibe that overall put me off of enjoying this song.
chazjamie  +   854d ago
Survival is trash. Bezerk is shit. Eminem should go back to the drugs, cant stand his attempts to be relevant.

After Marshall Marthers LP which was classic, he when on to become easily one of the most overrated artist of the last 10 years , overrated by non-hip hop fans mainly, he doesn't even rap anymore he just shouts...allot.

Yes as a person. The same person who made the album. The same person who called himself a god. The same person who is a joke.

I'm from Chicago and supported his early years and after his car accident when he wasn't such an egotistical d-bag.

Dude got swallowed up by fame and I can't even stand to listen to him anymore.

D@mn, guess when those checks stop coming in, no recourse but to sell out..... guess when you got kids to feed, you do anything.

OT: It's expected for this sort of thing to be done, I don't see what the huge surprise is here. I think that CoD: Ghost will sell like hotcakes, but I don't think the margin will be as large as last time. BF4 is definitely gaining momentum.

Overall, I think it will be a good thing for CoD, maybe force some more aggressive innovation.

Once thing is for certain, there will be plenty for everyone to enjoy this Holiday season.
Boody-Bandit  +   854d ago
"D@mn, guess when those checks stop coming in, no recourse but to sell out..... guess when you got kids to feed, you do anything."

Yeah Eminem is bumping nickels together to get by when he is worth a mere 140 million dollars. I wish I was that hard up.

This might be the first COD game I pass on completely. Too many games coming out I want next gen and I'm not sure COD will make the cut.

LOL. Seems like I hit a nerve. I'm sorry I took a shot at your artist man, I guess even Eminem still has some "Stans" these days. LOL.

People are so sensitive these days. My comment on CoD still "Stans", lol. Hope I didn't ruin your day little guy.

BTW. I thought his Slim Shady album was okay if that makes you feel better. Take it easy and lighten-up there buddy.
Boody-Bandit  +   854d ago
Looks like someone hit a nerve alrighty but it wasn't you. You talk like you're 12 years old and refer to me as little guy? My kids are probably older than you.

I just pointed out your ignorance and nothing more. I'm a rock / heavy metal guy and the old school guy (70's and 80's mostly) at that. I rarely ever listen to anything but Rock & Metal.

I honestly (per my name sake) couldn't name 1 album or song of Eminem other than 8 mile and it's only because of the movie. Brittnay Murphy, what can I say? Bummer she's gone.

Trust me when I tell you. There isn't thing one anybody on the internet can say to me that causes a wrinkle in my day. Nor does anyone in my everyday life. Sorry to call you out on your ignorance.

Well, I guess you continuously responding to someone who you categorize as a 12 year old doesn't mean anything, lol.

Not to mention the first thing you can do is come up with a personal attack. Shows the whit of a true genius on your part sir. lol.

I'm glad you got older kids too, even more reason for me to wonder why you would be on here getting into a verbal tussle with a "12 year old" as you called me.

You sure sound insecure man, and I'm just being BRUTALLY HONEST with you. But you have a wonderful day, and enjoying the Beatles or whatever the heck you older folks engage in.

Heard they are having a sale on prune juice at the store if you're interested, seems like you could use something to loosen up that stick up your backside sir.

Good day sir! LOL.

OT, hope all the CoD fans enjoy this game, seems like a great addition to the series overall.

lol .. I seriously couldn't hold a straight face while reading this. Who says he is the best? Is there even such a thing as "the best"? The one's who named him the 'best' were hipster beta white males who knew nothing about Rap/Hip-Hop until "M&M" hit the mainstream in 05'. Now we have wiggers all over the place yelling at the top of their lungs how 'gangsta' they are because they listened to a few Eminem songs. lol

Lot of people defending Eminem here when to be honest, he really is just selling out. As Eyeco put it, he's just shouting his raps out now rather than actually rapping. Go listen to The Marshall Mathers LP, The Slim Shady LP, The Eminem Show. That's when he was in his prime. Artists always have a time when they're in their prime. Eminem is out of that. Cousin and myself have been listening to Eminem back before he was even famous. He's just trying to stay relevant now rather than doing his own thing. It's sad but we move on.
