Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was just announced, and (understandably), it's been met with a certain amount of cynicism. Do we have reason to be excited for this title?
Hahah. And what is the reason you aren't excited?
What's your reason for being excited? There's no gameplay... as of right now it has the same promise as every other COD game, which only gets worse by the release.
Perhaps because it's nothing more than a carefully constructed video that (successfully) relies heavily on the pull of Kevin Spacey. Don't get me wrong, it's actually managed to drum up interest from me which is a miracle after how bad Ghosts was but still haven't seen anywhere near enough to know whether this is going to breathe new life into a game that badly needs it.
Hm... Because it's the same marketing campaign from every year? Or because they don't deliver their promises (destructive stuff on Ghosts reminds of Doom 1)? Or because their games are getting much worse every year? Still don't get it? Well, because they were able to fool stupid people for only less than one week this time. Even their marketing plots are getting old. haha But of course... VERY stupid people will be fooled (and excited) until the game arrives, just to realize it is just a previousCOD+1, nothing more. "BUT BUT BUT you're telling people are sucked into the marketing hype without seeing the game and you are bashing it also without seeing it..." Well, we have already seen that even the marketing lines are the same: "new" engine, true evolution to the series, groundbreaking innovation blablabla. Good CODs died with IW, get over it.
its call of duty what reason is there to get excited @ pelitera treyach makes better cod games
Because it's Call of Duty. Actually right now, it's Kevin Spacey Modern Warfare. It takes almost nothing for some people to get excited these days, and this isn't the first time we've heard about a "new kind of" COD. I don't really care either way. I'm not buying it.
All of the above there was no gameplay at all and every year they have a scripted high action trailer to get they hype going. It certainly looks different but in no way should anyone be excited at this point.
This is why I didn't get excited 1)Lagg (yes that a big problem when online can mean the difference between a kill or death) 2)Very poor hit detection (at times you can hit some one around a corner) 3)Over the top aim-assist (just look at qs etc and see how over the top it is) 4)Quick scoping (ruins the game) (snipers are meant for long range) 5)No-scoping (ruins the game) (snipers are ment for long range) 6)The knife being the most powerful weapon on the game,( I didn't know getting swiped across the foot can kill you) 7)Small boring maps (time for some new maps) 8)6V6 game modes (time for more players in game modes) 9)There needs to be tanks, (they where in WAW so why not anymore), 10)Stupid perks like commando, unlimited sprint etc, (I didn't know you could sprint for a unlimited time or that you could extend you melee attack) 11) 80% of the weapons would of been in previous COD's (time for some new weapons or least more variety), 12) Still not being able to see your body or legs when looking down (you could see your legs in the first Halo) (and what the point of customization if you can't see it) 13) A new game engine (yes it's time for a new engine) 14) reduce the range you can throw c4 (it might as well be classed as a grenade how far you can throw it at the moment) 15) Dynamic destruction (this would bring a whole new way how COD is played and reduce the number of campers etc) 16) Actually ban the cheaters and hackers (I sick and fed up with cheaters ad hackers ruining the game for everyone else because they have no skill of there own) But the creators of COD won't fix any of them because loads of people will continue supporting the series by buying the game and the COD creators will keep making the same game because people will continue to buy it so they won't change or fix it.
CoD just doesn't work for me anymore. I will never get excited about any future CoD before reviews give me reason to.
There's 2 things to pull from the reveal. First the Pros. 1. The graphics The AW looks better than any other COD game so far that much is apparent. I read somewhere that Sledghammer built another engine from the ground up so this a brand new engine. (a real new engine) 2. The story Hopefully Kevin Spacey will deliver a much needed story performance to this game and hopefully future actors or actresses can breath life into future COD campaigns. Respawn is trying to prove that story isn't relevant in twitch shooters. While Acti and COD devs think they have a place in the genre. While I particularly don't care where the direction goes at least AW looks to be the most interesting story with Kevin Spacey's role. The Cons. Gameplay: So how much of what we saw are we actually gonna be doing? Jumping 10 to 15 feet in the air, wall crawling super punching walls, turning invisible are those scripted railed elements or actual gameplay that we can control? Imo it would be a fail if we couldn't do at least half the stuff of what they showed. That would be very disappointing to play through the game running at normal speed jumping at normal height being told when and where to activate these abilities and not real time. Like I said fail and pretty pointless to us. 2. MP: So how much of what we saw will make it to MP? Is everyone gonna be super jumping and have super strength? That could make for some very fun moments in COD MP but lets face it how balance and fair will all this be? Maybe you can unlock and enhance different exo skeleton suits in MP and upgrades. How will new players fair against higher levels of suits if that was the case? Sounds like time will play a major factor. Just simply playing it will make you a better character VS someone who doesn't invest as much time. But like I said how could a lower levels compete against much higher players with better suits? That's where balance comes in. AW has allot of potential and COD fans are more excited than ever of course. Even though there's allot of pros there's some very questionable cons that need addressing soon. The series imo is steadily going down but hopefully AW can revive the series.
I agree. But there are more cons than pros, atleast when it comes to the MP. Future is fine but this may be over the top
We've heard that claim before about some new engine . And we know the game is still planned on ps3/360 . So no while i expect improvement (but not as much as it should having been milking over 3-4 times already) , i do not believe about some new engine until proven . There has been to many lies about the serie , about what's possible or needed thus far .. it no longer got an excuse with some of us , for doing less that some games with far lesser budgets and expectations in such fields . What was shown in the trailer was decent . Not ugly , but nothing exceptional either . Spacey's facial modelisation isnt even far off from what we could see from those in stuff like Mass effect 2-3 .. imho . TO be fair ME 2-3's likeness were pretty good all things considered , but it should be a whole step ahead now . "Gameplay: So how much of what we saw are we actually gonna be doing? " Even there i remain cynical . Remember all those climbing sequence , swimming , dog action , snow engines , mini submarines we kept being fed in the cod campaign lately . ANd now remember how little translated into the actual gameplay and mp . PS : I'm just pessimistic about their motivations and the game being such an improvement . I'm not hoping for the game and franchise to be mediocre . If anything , as a non fan , i hope it remains successful . It needs to be , to stop salivating publishers from emulating and incorporating further , what i dont like from COD ... It's that or when it dwindles down someone else will try to fill the void , possiblity at the expense of an existing franchise and sucking its soul out of it , instead of creating a new one .
I have a feeling this year will be diffrent ! I mean after all CoD is now on a 3 year cycle and this is the first time we get to see sledgehammers CoD ! Which should be fresh !EACH of the devs have diffrent styles, im anxious to know what sledgehammer is capable of and judging from the trailer it will look amazing ! Graphics wise ... we still havnt seen actual gameplay and we will have to wait till E3 to start judging the game! I honestly want to know what they have as their secret game mode , treyarch - zombies , IW - Aliens ,sledgehammer - dinos ? ^^ as for MP i know they wont dissapoint as its next gen so maybe more weapons, maps, bigger player cap? , bigger maps! (Because we can jump higher and run faster etc...)
Ghosts didn't interest me at all and I have been playing more Battlefield in the past year, but I'm actually kind of excited to see what they do with this new COD. I was getting bored of the same old BS & if they can actually do something good this time I might buy it but if it's more of the same I'm not even wasting my time.
Are you at all hopeful we'll see a dramatic change?
Nope. Not one bit.
i just think its going to be the same as always (plus a little like titanfall), and graphic improvement , just as every call of duty. the only thing exciting about this is kevin spacey
Same reasons since MW2 my friend.
Not excited, but this one has definitely peaked my interest in COD again. Still need to see more before i'm sold.
Agreed, I'm eager to see how this pans out in Multiplayer, and how they balance those new features.
Hope Sledgehammer revamp COD and get IW and Treyarch to step their game up.
New production team, longer developmental cycle, futuristic setting, and new gameplay options and modes. Hard for people to say it is the same old thing again.
It's not hard at all. It's really easy. Everything is banter until it happens, and with the cash cow this trash is every single year, it's hard to believe they would stray too far from what has worked for them, or else those same people who buy it every single year are going to be disappointed.
New production team: not new. MW3. Longer developmental cycle: three years, one studio. Other have been bad with 3 studios and two years, making for a total 6 studio-years. This info means nothing. Futuristic setting: not new. Ghosts. New gameplay options and modes: not new. Every year there is 1% new. Secret stage - New engine: joke, right? It is the same marketing lines and probably will be the same game. Again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again.
New team? kinda.. Longer dev cycle: yeah. Futuristic Setting: Look how BO2 turned out New Gameplay Options and Modes: isn't that expected?
I've been playing Call of Duty since the beginning. Looking at what the franchise has become is deeply depressing. Infinity Ward did such a wonderful job of evolving the series. Treyarch, Sledgehammer, and the new Infinity Ward are all one big joke to me. I know Sledgehammer hasn't done anything by themselves yet, but come on. I love Kevin Spacey. I do. But he's a marketing tool for this game. That's it. The story already sounds horrible.
The story sounds horrible? How is that possible when there is so little to go on?
I already played Crysis. That's how it's possible.
Sry didn't meant to disagree... I wanted to agree because I don't get how people can be so unbelievably negative about something they haven't tried
Yes very much so!
Not really. I was never a fan of COD. I don't hate it, it's just not for me.
I'm not really excited. Activision has pulled a fast one on me before. The last COD I was excite about was Blops 1.
i am excited but with reservations until I see gameplay.
Titanfall of Duty. I don't mind COD. I'll buy one every few years and see if it grabs me, if's it's not that great then I'm sure it'll be playable for at least 20-30 hours minimum. I didn't buy Ghosts and although I much prefer Battlefield, I still feel there is a place for a dumb, fast-paced shooter in my PS4's library. I mean we're talking about GAMES here, right? Sometimes when people get all angry about COD I feel it's necessary to remind them it's a game - not supposed to a life changing experience. COD, Destiny, Titanfall, Halo, they all occupy a different area of the genre. There is a place for them all.
OK let's get a fair balance going here. I buy COD just how any other sports fan buys basketball or football games yearly. My expectations aren't high for drastic changes but I do think a graphics overhaul is lonnngg over due tho. I enjoy the core of the multi player gameplay. Quick to pickup and play, 10mins max per round (TDM), challenging and rewarding. I was hoping Titanfall would change it up but its just not satisfying. The fact that anyone get a titan and they get called out so frequently, the novelty of it wears off so fast. Heck, you can even get challenges rewarded to you for being afk. Also, bots.
NO WAIT A SEC ..... still NO
I have fun playing Titanfall, killzone, and bf4 but at the end of the day they just don't cure the cod itch! I think youtuber white boy said it best when he said cod has some kind of addictive drug in it. I don't know what it is and games have actually tried to copy the cod formula but it's just not the same. It looks to me like sledgehammer took some aspects of Titanfall and crysis but just made them seem better! It's like I wanna play this now and I can't even concentrate on any other fps right now! Hate all you want, cod sells the most for a reason, whatever this addictive formula is it can't be replicated! By the way, notice I didn't mention ghosts, ghosts sucks!
I did...but Iim a huge COD fan so I don't know if that counts...lol
I've got bored of COD as of late however this looked good and has a sense of atmosphere to it which is what BF definitely has the upper hand in. It a mix of COD course, Halo and Titanfall. It could be really good. Hoping it's next gen only.
I've never played a COD game because I don't dig the whole war zone FPS thing, but I thought the trailer for this one looked really exciting. Then I died a little inside for thinking that. We'll just have to see, the proof is in the gameplay....
Are we? Am not I have no reason to be. The last few COD's have been same old same old in my opinion. The trailer showed very little to get exited about.
It's COD, rent job.
your brain is a rental
