It's not a huge surprise that most people took one look at the new Black Ops 3 trailer and thought 'hmm, looks a bit Deus Ex-y', what with all the augmentations and so on. It was, however, a complete revelation to multiplayer director Dan Bunting.
lol COD games always copied one or some mechanics from other games. No surprise.
Yup, first Titanfall now Deus Ex. Hopefully they modify the borrowed elements better than the same engine they continue to use.
Just want to point out that Titanfall isn't original either....
@ InTheLab True but if I'm not mistaken, it was the first to bring lots of attention to those mechanics.
@Xavior_Reigns boasting a borrowed/copied idea as original doesn't look much better so yh lets just say a lot of games borrow from each other.
COD also copied Mario 64's dynamic fish AI lol
The COD devs always act like they work so hard. Type up a speech that's a few paragraphs making it seem like you're doing something and see how many millions you can fool again. I don't buy any of that talk they're saying. Sorry, I just can't. Fish AI, dogs, jet packs.... Before I actually saw the trailer for Black Ops3 I was thinking about giving it a shot. The second I saw the person jump on the wall and use a jet pack I said "nope, not this time". :/
I would of defiantly bought it if they went back to world war 2 style but sadly they stuck with the exo suit crap and all you do is get shot in the back thinking how did he get there... Oh yeah we can basically fly now.
"For the first time on this planet we're releasing CoD to next gen coonsoles PS4 and XBONE. Never before has any developer ever embarked on this great journey as we are ding now. You'll see Next gen graphics, next gen linearity, nextgen repetitiveness and obciously nextgen rehash of similar mechanics you never found in other games!"
i think you people are over thinking this. i doubt Activision even knows that Dues Ex exists. how much copies did Dues Ex HR sell ? probably 1 or 2 million then compare them to COD sales.
You do realize deus ex existed before call of duty.
Enough to be in sight of the planet's develoeprs.
I didn't know Dues Ex created the concept of human augmentation
Every game copies from one another, look at how many games started using create a class/loadout after CoD 4 popularized it.
Shocked? Own up to it. DX:HR made some waves, it's not like they were all oblivious.
I am shocked too. Please don't compare Deus Ex to COD because Deus Ex is a god compared to run and gun military shooters. What a game Human Revolution was.
lol HR is a watered down game from the original
Well i for one thought it looked like crysis 2.
Go home you're drunk BO3 ...
Black Ops 3 has been in development for 3 years now. Besides what makes deus ex original?
Not following what's trending in other games and mashing it up with everything else later ? BTW , Deus EX HR was out in 2011 ... and obviously shown 1-2 years before
Well... Deus Ex looks amazing, Black Ops 3 looks last gen.
Say what you will about CoD and its rampant stagnation, but Deus Ex didn't invent the concept of human augmentation. In fact, Deus Ex, despite being a great series, didn't do many original things period in terms of narrative and setting. To insinuate that Treyarch decided to go back and randomly "rip-off" Deus Ex HR, which came out in 2011, is absolutely ludicrous. The way the Black Ops series was heading was clear once you saw BO2. They went into the future with it and now they're gonna go even further into the future with the third one. Human Augmentation and a dystopian society/world are extremely common cyberpunk tropes.
Eh, dudes in armor all look alike these days.
I could care less. Games copy others. I'm just glad activision signed with PS4.
Stop being dicks. They wanted to do a futuristic game, they did a futuristic game. So what if they have jetpacks and stuff. Isn't that good for gameplay ? More variety ? Just because the Deus Ex trailer came out before COD trailer. Copying this, copying that. There are tons of games that do that, so shut the hell up. Bashing COD for no reason. COD has enough legit reasons to bash it, don't add unfair reasons to that. lol. We'll just have to wait and see what the SP campaign is like. If they have learned from the past and the gameplay is more complex, I think it could be great.
