James Martin of Games Pundit evaluates some ideas that could make for a better Call of Duty game this year.
If they quit repeating the same crap over and over again. Watch. MW3 is going to be the exact same thing as it has been before SP:Kill Russians, kill Russians, slo mo, slo mo, your character dies, kill Russians, kill Russians, kill Russians, kill Russians, slo mo kill at the main bad guy, the end. MP:Run, run, camp, run, run, knife from 10 feet, run, run, chopper, killkillkillkillkill, camp, kill, camp, kill, nuke, everyone dies, kids whine.
Wow man i just spit water all over my screen bubs that some funny s*it. Edit:Frankly i don't see this series changing much as long as people flock to it.When they start to see the decrease in sales then maybe something will light up in their heads.But then again their hair could lite up and they be like dexter xDD.
I have an idea: STOP RELEASING THE DAMN GAME EVERY YEAR!! Give the developers time to iron out the bugs. Oh yeah, make a playable port on the ps3 atleast.
@Shackdaddy836 i was just about to play MW2 but after I read your post i feel like i just played it knife from 10 feet lmao!! too true I will play MW3 just to finish the story even tho i think the whole story couldve been on 1 game
Ya they should stop making COD then gaming as a whole will be better.
1. No more super host advantage 2. Hit detection that works so I don't have to unload half a clip into one person.
For me, what they really need to do is scrap the whole "it's 2 vs 5,000". i find larger scale war more intense, i miss cod 2.
Getting a 25 kill streak to unlock a tactical nuke and launching it straight at Activision headquarters. Clean kill with no innocent bystanders :D That's how you improve the next COD game
A new Engine, and a better story.
Take a break for, say, 3 years so we can miss it, instead of cloning himself every year.
what can make it better? get rid of cheesy grenade launchers and make it look better than battlefield 3... good luck.
Dedicated servers also for console.
When they actually come up with an idea thats good and fresh they under develop it. I liked the satellite surveillance level but it was over to quick and didnt have as much control as I'd like. You could experiment, only follow their path and do exactly what they wanted. It could have been like a cool RTS thing that lets you zoom in and take over at a FPS level.
Basically for COD to get better it has to become like Battlefield 3, and that's not going to happen is it. Dice have taken the genre by the balls and are now dictating where it's going to go. Activision thought they could keep reusing the same old shitty engines in their games until the end of this generation. But they didn't expect EA and Dice to be busy in the background creating the next generation of FPS. Game over COD
Lol its easy to make call of duty better. I just did it today... Its called amazon trade in. 38$ for that crap which i got as a gift. Gonna buy mirrors edge and folklore both used, not pay a single cent. I think amazon are really generous with this deal. I mean im sending them a piece of shit and getting 2 games in return. I have no idea how they stay in business with those kinds of deals going on.
Marry me pl0x?
Traded Black Ops in for $40 at GameStop yesterday. If you hold off until they do the occasional 50% trade-in bonus, you can actually get some pretty decent deals. It's the only time I go to that hellhole. Except they were only going to give me $5 for MAG, wtf. Kept that one...
omg i'm laughing so hard i'm gonna die! dxm1 put out a warning next time :D
JUST FIX THE FREAKING NETWORK PROBLEMS AND GIVE US DEDICATED SERVERS FOR ONCE!!! Yea, pretty much that.
more polish and less casual would be good
A new publisher
ARMA II influence. 'Nuff said.
Answer: Stopping the franchise. They ruined what was good about it.
a good break, for about 2 years and not releasing each game in one year..
Part 1; What can make Call of Duty better? Exclusive PC Game. I’m sorry to burst Console-players bubbles, but FPS were NEVER meant to be played on consoles. It’s pretty obvious when the best controllers are on the PC, the best hardware and software is on PC and the best way to update/maintain your game is on the PC. The best way to create a community – Is on the PC. The best way to set up dedicated servers – Is on the PC. There is not a single pro to playing FPS on consoles and ever since FPS came to consoles, they have been going downhill. We used to have good games such as Quake , Unreal Tournament. Counter-Strike & CS:S is luckily still going strong, but have a look at MW2 & Black Ops, they totally misplaced these two titles due to the console crowd and now they are ruining Bulletstorm with a set FPS of 62. MW2 didn’t have dedicated servers, which ruined the game. It didn’t have MOD tools and no console to tweak your in-game settings to your preferences. Black Ops had a worse launch than MW1 and is only slowly catching up to what you can call a “acceptable game” from retail. Developers has gone lazy, due to console development and focusing and three different platforms rather than one – which FPS was designed for. The biggest market is on the console, the main reason could be discussed alot, but at the end we all come down to it being a pre-set hardware configuration for developers to fit their game onto. PC has thousands of different configurations in both hardware and software and it seems the developers thinks this is too much of a task to support heavily. You can’t only blame the developers for this, hardware developers are also to blame. What is needed, for FPS games – and cross-platform games in general to become what they used to be – Epic! Is the following: Lower the PC component prices to compete with the consoles. It’s frustrating today, that people have to spend more than a thousand dollars to purchase a machine that can run todays games on the best settings. Spend time developing games – Black Ops was unfinished, Modern Warfare 2 was unfinished, Modern warfare 1 was unfinished. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was unfinished, BFBC2: Vietnam was unfinished, developers are not taking their time to finish their products! It’s 2011, how can you as a publisher accept shipping out products that are not finished?
Part 2; Alpha & Public Beta testing – While you may say that it may be a potential loss in sales, I say – It will DEFINATELY be a loss in customers in the future. If you continue to not allow people to beta test your game to find the flaws and bugs that every single launch has, then you will not see people coming back to your games. If you find Beta’s or Demo’s to be a potential loss in sales – your game are not worth putting on the market. Black Ops wasn’t worth putting on the market in November 2010, that game should only be in closed-BETA upon release! Community, Feedback & Balancing – You have a great community, when things work! Ask, question and work with your community for a better game. The people who purchase your game will only work towards making it better, as they will be the ones playing it. Get feedback, constantly. Make feedback-schemes on the forums, in-game and ask for feedback via your forums for christ sakes! Continue balancing the game, especially the weapons, it’s really important that half of your population aren’t running around with one gun because it is the single-most superior in all categories. News, Communication, Forums! – Why are you using Twitter? What is so wrong with going to the forum, communicating with your community on the platform that has been used for years. The forums are alive, use it! Twitter & Facebook are fine for newswriting, but when you want to communicate, use your forums or shut them down entirely. It feels like your writing to a brick wall when no one cares to reply to even the most well though & constructive posts. Come on Developers, PC gaming isn’t dead – Work with us.
