That's going to be abused like crazy until it's fixed.

And yet this is the game that everyone is raving about." The Resolution War"

Come on...

One of this games features are already broken.

Many Games have bugs which are evidently not found until the masses have the game. Its a common thing. This is why Devs release patches.. I'm assuming you're a BF4 Fan....
AngelicIceDiamond  +   672d ago
Somewhat, but I played a whole lot of COD. And I think its starting to get to me.

The Resolution War!

It was a bloody war… Many pixels were lost.

Everyone in the real world just shrugged. But on the "battlefield" (figured I'd throw that in somehow) there was much screaming… High resolution bombs. Playstations and Xboxes strewn about in a bloody heap.. Smoke bellowing into the sky.. I will never forget those intense days…



Thegamer41  +   672d ago
People were saying this game was a rubbish technically and graphically and still was not capable of 1080p on the xbox one, no one was praising it for being a good game.

LMAO @ The Resolution War.

In all fairness, many non-hardcore gamer friends of mine have heard about the resolution discrepancy and it is quite surprising how many are using that to make their decision on which console to buy (combined with the price point too).
SilentNegotiator  +   672d ago
Oh yeah, I'm sure your problem with COD has EVERYTHING to do with a glitch to be fixed on day 1 and nothing else.

One more way to encourage more camping. Show your real skills by run and gun.

Exactly why I'm gonna make a melee only class to annoy you guys back.

'The resolution war' has nothing to do with the game. Well, other than everyone considers it the least graphically intensive third party game on release day - which is why it's such a big deal. If such a game can't run at proper resolution on XBone, looks really bad for the machine.

It was the nail in the coffin for me. I love Halo and I want XBone to be a competitive console but it's in a ridiculous position right now. I couldn't justify $250 for it. If it can't do 1080P then it might as well not exist.
dennett316  +   671d ago
The "Resolution War", as you put it, is not about a single game. It's about the most expensive console struggling to run a game as crappy looking as Call of Duty at anything close to the level a console $100 cheaper can.
It's about a next gen console not hitting 1080p in 2013 - and lets face it, the PS4 isn't exactly a mega-powerhouse either, but at least it's doing more than the Xbox One.
It's to do with the ability of the hardware to last 5-8 years without some serious compromises being made in order to run the next generation of games. The One is bottlenecked thanks to it's outdated RAM set up and weak GPU. It's not about this one game, it's about all the games that are going to come down the road, and about those people paying a premium for a console far less capable than the cheaper alternative, and the reasons why (Kinect, worthless TV features).
KidBroSweets2  +   672d ago
Sounds like they've maybe already resolved this problem in the tweet statement that was released. Regardless it'll be fixed by the time it officially releases.
Statix  +   672d ago
Forget "passing certification."

How the HELL does a lean feature get implemented in an FPS without the appropriate lean animation in the first place? The FIRST thing any good programmer would ensure is that a lean mechanic (especially one that they hyped the hell out of) isn't overpowered and easily exploited. Infinity Ward made it easy on hackers this time... by building the hacks straight into the game!

I swear, it's like the Infinity Ward devs are on the same level as amateur modders. I get the sinking feeling that the future of the COD series is not in good hands.

this would have DEFINITELY BEEN FOUND IN A BETA.... but seeing that CoD wont release a beta cause they want people to buy CoD on "hype" as they do every year, we will never get a beta. it's pathetic really.. hell, atleast BF4 had a beta where stuff like this (and other stuff as well) could be found. There's no telling HOW many more issues, bugs and game breaking items we're going to have to deal with next week.
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   671d ago
And every bug that was in the Battlefield betas still made it to the final retail version. Go on BF fan, you're drunk. Go troll somewhere else.
Am_Ryder  +   672d ago
At least it's apparently getting fixed in a day-one patch, right?

Infinity Ward's Tina Palacios tweeted, "Nice footage of a stolen game that isn't supporting our work. That is going to be fixed in TU1"
sAVAge_bEaST  +   671d ago
I doubt it will be fixed.. It is still in BO2, I wall banged a dude last week, corner camping, his gun was sticking out.. It/s the engine, pretty sure.

Then again this just might be in that one spot? Are there other videos of the same thing happening? It's a simple patch fix. Give it time.

Benjammin25  +   672d ago
You would be surprised how many games have game breaking glitches. In practically any third person shooter, you can shoot through walls. Try it if you don't believe me. Walk right up to a wall making sure your aiming reticule is aimed at your enemy. The bullets should hit the target instead of the wall.

There's a reason Killzone's lean feature is only in the single-player and not online. ;)
mxrider2199  +   672d ago
i thought they put it online for shadowfall
Codey47  +   672d ago
But is it for the exact same reason though?
Not normally invisible on most games(apart from cloak in KZ) with the lean "feature"..this isn't Crysis it's COD. Lean is a handy "feature" if it works...but as per usual the clipping in CODs engine is still apparently plagued since the original release on PC.

Clipping is just as bad as the invisibility glitch... but the difference is, the invisibility glitch will be fixed... the clipping will always be there.

and so it begins!!!! They are going to patch the hell out of this game lol. I love this game!

It's like heroine. COD:Modern Warfare was the first high, and I have been chasing it ever since!
USMC_POLICE  +   672d ago
It worked great in big red one on PS2!
GusBricker  +   672d ago
That's the thing. We really won't be seeing a next gen CoD or BF game until the next one, that's why the resolution doesn't really mean anything to me.
karl  +   672d ago
It means ps4 is the strongest system.. we are only using it to compqre both consoles... i wont buy it
GusBricker  +   672d ago
It certainly seems to be and easier to developer for than the ps3.

Seems like the Xbox One is gonna take a little extra time to obtain it's true potential.
Statix  +   672d ago

In all honesty, I don't think an HD7770-equivalent GPU has that much potential to unlock.
Arturo84  +   671d ago
My thoughts exactly that's. Why I don't get bent out of shape of not having a console at launch I can wait until shit gets truly amazing
UNCarolinaBlue  +   672d ago
Reminds me of the Rainbow Six days. Wall glitchers were the devil!

What a game that was. Brings back so many memories
MAULxx  +   671d ago
How about a HD redo for consoles & fix the clipping :)
G_Hartley_  +   671d ago
@MAULxx, I would love that, I remember one of the levels they had in game advertising and they were advertising The movie "2012" (Like 4 years before it game our ahaha) I also remember it being so slow. The movement of the characters moved like my Gran. Having said that, I still loved the game
GTgamer  +   672d ago
Classic Cod well the game ain't out yet so I'm guessing they will fix it.

Either that's a major glitch, or all of the soldiers trained under Corvo Attano.

LMAO classic CoD Trash.. even when they fix it, don't think there's still going to be huge problems with One Hit kill shots, aim assisting, lag comp and this old decrepit engine????
ambientFLIER  +   672d ago
One hit kill shots? Hmm, that sounds good to me, seeing as how I only play hardcore modes...

Oh wait, sorry, I'm supposed to hate on COD to be cool, like you and the rest of n4g. Cod sucks, cod sucks, cod sucks!!! bla bla bla!!

Hahaha very cute.. Nope don't hate it just to be hating.. I've played CoD for the entire xbox 360 generation.. That has gotten worse and worse each year... So I have legitimate Reasons and points to why I'd rather something else...
ambientFLIER  +   672d ago
Having not played Ghosts for YOURSELF yet, I doubt you can truly analyze it and slam it just yet.
MRMagoo123  +   672d ago
I am giving ghosts a go, i have bought all the CODS i enjoyed world at war a lot tho i got sick of modern shooters and it was fun, i like blops too but the others not so much but i do always buy them and give them a try, if they suck i trade em in after i finish the story if they are good i keep them till the next one comes out.
miklo84  +   672d ago
I can already predict campers taking me out 10 times per contest using this new feature.
FITgamer  +   672d ago
You can see his gun sticking through the wall before leans out. They need to fix that.
Codey47  +   672d ago
That's called clipping that will never be fixed.
It's plagued COD since the original on PC.
MightyNoX  +   672d ago
Now, now. Don't insult the Kinect. It's an integral part of the Xbox experience.
venom06  +   672d ago
HAHAHA!!! THIS WOULD'VE BEEN FOUND IN A BETA!! but seeing how CoD NEVER releases a BETA on fear that it will hurt sales and that people will buy it anyway, this is what we're stuck with...
ToonarmY  +   672d ago
How could they mess this up? Lean has been in call of duty since call of duty 1...........(Not balanced for lean)
windblowsagain  +   672d ago
This game needs to fail.

up2snuff  +   672d ago
This game will be worse than MW3 or BO2. COD keeps getting worse instead of better. Peek/lean, sliding while shooting or matling....all terrible ideas. I can see all the kiddies sliding around the map like idiots now. Man was that epic.......FAIL.
Deltaguy  +   672d ago
still will be more fun then killzone sf lol
akurtz  +   672d ago
cod always has that glitch where you cant see the enemy but on their killcam, theyre rubbing their ass cheeks on the barrel of your gun...
bornsinner  +   672d ago
seriously this franchise is getting worse every year, they need the original devs back!
Statix  +   672d ago
It's a shame all the original talent of Infinity Ward left and formed Respawn Entertainment. Ever since then, the COD series has been steadily declining in quality.

I'm not a big fan of sci-fi shooters, so Titanfall doesn't interest that much. I just hope someday, Respawn does their take on a modern-day, military FPS, and shows COD how to do it properly.

warczar  +   671d ago
I agree with you statix but the reality is respawn will somehow have to break away from EA to be able to do something other than Titanfall. The big time publishers love to beat dead horses. It sucks that Respawn seems to be in the same situation with EA that they were in with Activision; Being told when and what game to make and what system it's going to be made for.
violents  +   672d ago
They always have animation issues in COD, every one of them especially the last couple because they added in the "lag compensation" which in my opinion just adds more lag. Couple that "compensation" with a some glitchy animations and a little actual lag, depending on your internet connection I guess, and you constantly have people killing you that you cant see or you die after you've gotten behind cover.

COD is way overrated and needs to die.

They found a cash cow and will milk it until its dried up and in my opinion already is. Stop buying it or stop whining that it is broken, because this happens every time a new COD comes out.
buynit  +   672d ago
Its a shame how much money this game has made for activision and they still lack on moving the genre forward and giving it the attention it sound .. Dah well... Now they have destiny and im sure its destined to end the same way...
Bigc32  +   672d ago
This what happens when we praise graphics over gameplay smh..
KillrateOmega  +   672d ago
How do you make so much money (money sufficient to hire quality devs) and still make silly mistakes?
WhiteDynamite  +   671d ago
They don't hire quality devs. They screw them over so bad that they leave and form a new company (Respawn). The new blood simply has to be competent enough not to fuck up the formula.

*IF* I end up buying Ghosts, it will be strictly for the campaign. Yes, I know it's hard to believe for you young'uns, but once upon a time, the name Call of Duty was synonymous with a quality, epic campaign experience.
KillrateOmega  +   671d ago
I hear you, man. I've played every Call of Duty, including the CoD1, CoD2: Big Red One, and CoD3. They really do have some sick campaigns.

Some people criticize them for being too 'Michael Bay' with predictable twists and explosions left and right, but I still find them enjoyable.

every cod game defend the raido sneak past pay 2$ for camo pay 15$ for new maps and a reskined old map. here my idea take every map from overgrown to shipment and single player guns like the ak74u and rpd and put them im Mplayer. never understood why those guns in black ops single player only i hate cod
BobBelcher  +   671d ago
lol... Love to see the hypocritical reactions that would be made if this was BF4 w/ the lean problem.
Sadist3  +   671d ago
Regardlessif you like COD or not, you can't deny that BF4 is a better game. It offers more, it's more strategic, it's bigger. These games where you just run around in a freaking gym (like COD or Killzone) are old news. Being something new to the table, this isn't 1996 anymore.
