Editorial: Does The Advanced Warfare Hype Seem...Light?

At about this time during any given year, the new Call of Duty scheduled for the fall is hogging the spotlight. Not so much this year, though. Why?

Probably because people are fiunally realising that it's most likely going to be the same game at it's core yet again and that there money is most likely better off spent on better games coming out roughly the same time.

Nope. It's because ghost was so bad nobody wants to get excited. If it's good it will be the no1 played game on PSN and XBL respectively.

I don't agree with either of you. Even though it shouldn't, Call of Duty will continue to sell gangbusters. It's because of the casual gamer or "dudebro" that buys COD, but doesn't go on gaming sites like us core gamers do. The hype is there, but it's silent.

DeadlyOreo1116d ago

TomShoe has a point. Cod is quite a casual game (pick up & play) and most casuals don't follow these kinds of sites. Cod will sell heaps, there's no point thinking it won't.

Also (IMO) whats there to get hyped about as cod is pretty standard now:

1) Poor short interactive cutscenes main campaign (with Kevin spacey)
2) Multiplayer
3) Season pass (4 map packs, Xbox live first)

What else is there to get "hyped" about or even write/talk about? NOTHING

I agree with you (mostly). I most call them casual gamers but I call them yuppie gamers. They aren't diehard gamers that visit these kinds of sites. Hopefully, it will quit selling so many copies and the developers will be forced to take a different approach to make it fresh. I've said as much before so this will be the last time I say it. COD just needs to be brought down a few pegs.

I am a die-hard gamer lol!
Even though I don't post many comments I am always on this site and other sites reading everything to do with gaming, I play most games that come out yet I spend the most time on COD.
What's wrong with that? Why does it hurt you guys so much I don't get it.
You claim COD is the same game all the time, then don't play it or waste your time with it, yes ghosts is shit compared to other call of duty games but I still play it because I enjoy it, I have a ton of fun going on and playing with a few friends, and to the people that keep claiming that cod is such a casual game and that it's easy to do well online, seriously I do not take you seriously at all, clearly you haven't played against a clan of 4 or 6 and never played eSports, you won't stand a chance and you'd be lucky to come out with a 0.4kd. Just watch the one million competition in cod and you'll see if there's team work or not.
You want cod to change so much to suit you ? Guess what us core fans don't want that, but the good news is that there's games like BF and Destiny that you can play, completely different FPS games. So quit complaining and go play what you enjoy and let others do the same.

This franchise is going downhill so of course the hype is down. The better days are behind us with cod.

I think its time for it to go old school. World war 1 would be my preference. Trench to trench sometimes without a gun so you need to look for a dead comrade in the hope he had a gun before struggling down to the enemy lines.

All this modern crap is ironically getting old.

Paths of Glory and All Quiet on the Western Front as an FPS

I think the game looks awesome.
