MP1st - Vice and Call of Duty present “Superpower for Hire”, a short look into the world of Private Military Corporations.
So this next Call of Duty is basically corporation war, interesting.
only game I recall that revolve its story around PMC was MGS4, besides that I dont know if deus ex: hr would be considered one...
It's exactly MGS4 Guns of the Patriots. THE PMCs. The money! COD: Patriots. seem like the developers had time to play on ps3 and enjoy the great story and get some ideas off mgs4.
heh, G4S is the same name as the company that collect the takings of our shop and take it to the bank, all secure like wearing protective gear and a facesheild; like this http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/... TIL: G4S in the company Im talking about, stands or Group 4 Sercuricor People in britain have probably seen them time to time, a big copmany in that feild
I would consider it one. But did anyone find the CEO of Blackwater's statements disturbing? The man is lying through his teeth. We all saw dead Blackwater mercenaries at the start of the Iraq War. Of course, news outlets were told to label them "contractors" but no one is buying that line anymore.
@minimur12 Daily Mail shouldn't be a valid newspaper, it's basically the shovel ware of newspapers. This CoD looks interesting though, the VICE doc looks cool too!
This COD is touching real life. Never heard of G4S. Private military should be illegal. How does this make sense to pay Private Military Contractors more than soldiers. Phillip Millis makes perfect sense. Everything shouldn't be for profit. That's common sense.
I'm in the Army and I've never heard of them either kinda scary. But he is right about people who are good at their jobs leave the military and join Black Water all the time. Hell I thought about looking into it but I'm getting old and I have a family to take care of.
They'll do anything to try to get a buzz going. Looks stupid, and it'll most likely be the same un-innovative gameplay as usual.
Looks stupid? I have to ask, do you like Metal Gear Solid?
I haven't fully played through a Metal Gear since the first MG Solid on PSX.
Again assuming before seeing. Like most people in this community. Tell me then what if your wrong? Will you have the guts to come back and admit it? Because so far no one here has.
Ok, fair enough. Reason I asked is it focuses heavily on the privatization of armies and it works quite well as the base for a story, so you never know.
Just looked at the G4S website just to be curious after watching this video.....this sounds like this is going to be a pretty deep COD game!
I thought the same for Black Ops. Having all these classified black operations during the Cold War seemed really deep since it was taking place during a real world event around important real world people. Then it turned out to be "THE NUMBERS MASON!"
That's true too.....I just hope this time around it's not the case with this one.
Okay, they took a concept of MGS, but that doesn't mean you can start comparing it right away. Anyone that reads books will know the idea existed in a lot of stories, not all of them are good. I'm not one to bash COD, but comparing it to MGS just because they have PMC? come on. If they really want to impress me, dive even further into political lies and bring it all to the table. COD has the power to bring some of this to attention, so it would be interesting to see the media freak out about it.
Well the video was at least interesting. However I don't think it's going to sell me a $60 video game with DLC map packs and microtransactions, only to be considered outdated in a few months by CoD 2015.
Sounds pretty badass, not gonna lie. I hope there is actually an intriguing story to it and not just a garbage throwaway campaign with recycled multiplayer.
Conceptually, this has piqued my interest. Though, I'm worried that it will be an experience where you blitz through the game so fast, that anything interesting from the concept will be lost, or worse yet, simply be reduced to background noise in favor of mp (either one is such a waste for the potential). I used to really enjoy the campaigns (mostly in the WW II era games). COD's story wise haven't felt cohesive in quite a while. I have no idea why the style of story pacing used in the current titles of COD ever became popular.
If this CoD game allows us to step into the shoes of a morally ambiguous PMC soldier that might be interesting, but I hope it doesn't become a whole "PMC's are evil, we need to stop them, go MURICA!" affair because that would be really....really stupid. A CoD that trusts it's audience with a moral grey area is a CoD I might be interested in.
Get back to true cod maps and fast paced action. Cod ghosts sucks!
A new COD? Whodathought!?!?
