OXM UK: CoD 4 dev Infinity Ward has mounted an astonishing attack on Call of Duty: World at war, denouncing the producer as a "Senior Super Douche" who "doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about." Handbags at the ready!
Fight! Fight! Fight!
"doesn't know what the fu*k he's talking about" Hmm... ...sounds like all the xBox Zombie Caveman Lemmings on this!!! ;-D
What's wrong IW? Can't handle that it's better?
The guys over at Treyarch are incapable of making a good game. Definitely one of the worst "mainstream" developers out there imo.
IW did all the work, its their engin and models, and its their gameplay. Trey just took back to ww2 and tweaked it like an update
I agree with Max Power. The game feels like a COD4 mod and the graphics are worse. I hate the addition of vehicles but there are some things I prefer over COD4.
Rob0g0rilla you must be running a standard def. because i've been playing the beta as well. and you know, T_T how is it that the character modles are the same. when limbs can be torn off. also if you notice the guns shots are different. in CoD4 you could hit someone across the map with a pistol like its a sinper rifle. you cant do that in here. whats the matter are all the hardcore CoD4 fans mad because the game is more realistic then your precious game, CoD4 also feels out of date. this feels clean to me. but then again that IMO. except the fact of CoD4 feeling out of date compaired. thats more of a fact. -nai-
@nainai Robogorilla is correct. COD4 looked much better than the poorly textured COD5. MOst levels in beta are way too dark to be entertaining. They also used the same perk system and added few more of their own. So adding a few things over the innovative ideas of IW and now treyarch hv the nervenerve to claim that their's is superior version? ALso did anyone play the stupid James Bond by treyarch? Looked like ps2 title. Where is the freaking innovation in there? Games like BF:BC, Dead space, Far cry2, Gears2 etc have really upped the ante in fps/tps genre. So the devs have to make their games look and play the same atleast or better than the benchmark set by the games mentioned above in order to proclaim superiority of their game.
the game looks like a cod4 mod to me...
I'm with Infinity Ward! Ahaha, But I can't wait for CoD World at War! :D WOOooo
if you did read it you would have know that he has a problem with the guy from Activision (the parent company), not Treyarch. Treyarch does suck, but this is not what this is about. But of course no one here even read the interview before they made a comment.. Priceless.
I realized that but never bothered to edit my comment :}
lol This is entertaining.
*pauses R2 , grabs popcorn*
Lol how dare you pause resistance. Oj
Its one person at infinity ward angry and one guy at treyarch, with good reason I think! The title makes it seem like the whole companies are involved.
Lol the dude's name isn't Dowling, its Bowling. Robert Bowling
What the heck is with the disagrees? That's his name...
Apparently, no one likes him not even the mention of his name. So you get a disagree? trying to make sense of it thats all
Those are the disagree bots. They attack all comments.
lol can we get up dates like this cause this is hilarious stuff
Ohhhhhh handbags at dawn eh.
There is a more professional way to say stuff like that instead of busting down on your peers like that even if he did have it coming. Damn.
Treyarch are not Infinity Ward's peers. :P
more professionnal, yes more amusing, no
professional yes, but it is his personal blog, he can say anything he wants
Sure, he can say whatever he wants, but that doesn't make it right. He handled this about as well as Sarah Palin handled that interview with Katie Couric. LOL noob.
HAHAHA! Now that is hilarious for sure.
*arm over face Oooooohhh! </snap>
if it wernt for IW we wudnt hav any call of duty!! so f*ck cod5 ill wait for cod6 thankyou :D
the beta was kinda meh to me....and doesn't look all that great.
Fallout 3 + Resistance 2 + LBP + Gears 2 + Fable 2 + Far Cry 2 + Dead Space + Left 4 Dead _______________ I'll pass CoD5 This holiday season is awesome. My PS3 library just doubled in a few months. Awesome! Off topic : Also, when you know all these great games just came out, don't you find it hilarious to see those Fracture ads on N4G? I dunno, this game feels so underwhelming lol, especially if you look at the guy's face in the ad's picture. What kind of idiots decided to release the game at this time of the year? ...just wanted to share this thought.
Fracture is a game with potential. Unfortunately that potential was never met.
Honestly I downloaded COD5 beta on my Xbox and I don't really like it. Probably because WW2 games have been to over done and I know there are fans out there who like WW2 games. COD4 I will always play but right now it takes a break for Gears of War 2 and Restiance 2 both i enjoy more online. When COD5 comes out next week I will rent it but I will not own it.
I agree, they should have just stuck with modern day weapons. There's way too many WW2 games.
I was playing Treyarchs COD WOW beta the other night at my mates. I know it's a beta but it just didn't play as well as COD MW. The guns are a step backward, lots of stupid army style shouting soundbites. I'm not much of a fan of the phosphorus grenade or what ever it is. Just to have something positive to say about Treyarchs game...It's definitely better than COD 3. I'm still undecided though on whether I'll buy this. I would have preferred to see Infinity Ward release some more maps for COD 4 MW.
Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight!!!!
ohhhhhhh someone go tell a teacher
these noobs are trying to say their "Mod" is better then the original game!! wtf!!!
this is the kind of news us as gamers need to entertain us without the constant war of fanboyizm.. however im with iW on this one,since i dont like activision at all,bieng a producer has nothing to do with the game exccept produce it lol... the dev's are the ones that make the game. i didnt care to much for COD4 just for the fact it got old to me quick,but COD5 will be probably worse but better just for the co-op and zombies (witch is incredibly dumb but very fun). i'll just stick to my resistance 2 untill Killzone 2 comes out. the COD franchise ended at 4.
producer provides money. Money usually (not all the time but) have good potential to make good games. Producer takes all the profits. Producer has alot to do with product.
This isn't actually insulting Treyarch or CoD:WaW. This is insulting a guy from Activision who acts like he is a developer and saying how he (the Activision guy) should stop talking about developing a game when in reality doesn't know anything about programing. But still, don't f*ck with Infinity Ward.
world at war is going to blow. its cod4 without f%cking laser sights. wtf is the point. the graphics are worse and chances are everything else is worse as well. infinity ward made a great game, letting treyarch make the next cod just to pump out a game every year and turn it into madden is stupid. infinity ward is talking sh!t straight to its publisher, not to treyarch in this blog. i dont know how well that's going to work out for them. but since they made cod4 i doubt activision can do anything about it.
I don't wanna hear anymore about CliffyB's flamebait, the other CliffyB (the new one), or about Call of Duty developers' catfights. I just want my good games to come out finished with no need for patches to correct framerate drops and sh1tty glitches, my fair, balanced and objective reviews, and developers to shut up and put up.
It's kinda hard being Snoop D-o-double-g..
This premium douche bag, Noah Heller, is NOT employed by Treyarch, but rather by Activision. He has stirred up trouble before by insulting Gearbox and the Brothers in Arms series. He doesn't have much of a hand in the making of the game, thankfully.
That's pretty funny. But I wonder what the big honchos at Activision think? These two groups seem like brothers who don't get along. Is their sibling rivalry at Activision? Also, didn't Infinity Ward create the game engine being used for World At War? That means they don't have to really do that much work. They just get to work on the fun details.
I would too. The dude isn't on the dev team, so it's not like Activision can counter back. Treyarch and Infinity Ward have a good relationship.
It's quite clearly a PR exercise. You've got to shout pretty loud to be heard above GoW2 and R2, to be fair...
for codwaw psn=countdowndaclown
jus so u all no alot of u may have shot me in cod4 but it'll different on tuesday lol lol lol
i'll send u a friend request later 2day
If any one knows how I can get in the killzone 2 beta plz e-mail me at [email protected] Thanx
BALLS OF STEEL
is always right Chuck Norris style.
Both developers are garbage, so it doesn't matter. TGSI
In a way i can understand why Infinity Ward is angry,becouse world at war almost copied they hard work.lol. No i haven't really read the blog yet so i don't really know.
I don't get it... the guy from IW is mad because a producer of Activision made some comparisons between CoD5 and Cod4 ? According to him, you don't have the right to comment a game if you did not develop it ? Weird... and so unprofessional. After all, CoD belongs to Activision, not IW or TreyArch. And after the huge succes of the fourts episode, it is logical that Activision use it in his PR
stick it to em IW. i got the cod5 beta.....and i still hate WW2 game.im skippin this one .ill just wait till cod6.luckily i got R2,and gears2 plus i got new halo maps and left 4 dead to look forward to as far as multiplayer shooters go.I wont miss cod5 if the beta is anything to go by.....
I just made a comment the other day stating that Infinity Ward's Call Of Duty 1,2,4 is MUCH BETTER than Treyarch's Call Of Duty 3 and World At War! Infinity Ward made BOTH versions of COD4 indentical on the PS3 AND XBOX 360! Treyarch didn't FACT!!! So who's the better dev?! Infinity Ward FTW!!!
when i read a few of those interviews when dude said something along the lines of "we have better_____than call of duty 4"i dont remember the words he used in the interview but i remember dude saying that and i was like wtf is he bitter because people like infinity wards version of cod more than treyarchs? and didnt he diss the brother's in arms guys too?
Aren't they on the same camp? IW needs to grow up.
THIS is funny.. loool.. Senior Super Douche ..looool
Lol "Senior Super Douche".
I loved COD4, but I take issue with some folks saying World at War sucks. I have been playing the multi-player beta and I gotta tell ya, its pretty sweet. Firstly the graphics are on par with COD4. Secondly the action is fast and furious. Dismemberment, attack dogs, tanks, etc. Treyarch dropped the ball on COD3, but WAW is an altogether different animal and I do believe it will hold gamers over just fine until COD6 comes out later in 2009. With that said, the producer of the game should never talk crap about things he doesn't understand. Let the devs handle game interviews and just shut up and cut the checks Noah....
Oh come on, COD5 is a blatant COD4 rippoff and then you have this guy who says COD5 is better. I'm with Infinity Ward on this one, they are the force behind the series.
Than Madonna....... COD5 is not really on my list..of must haves..I may rent it and give it a shot...and thats its..
