Yeah I'm really going to buy a game where the only different thing is the setting and maps. What a crock of shit!

"bringing an impressive number of eclectic settings, deep multiplayer gaming and a story that ties up nearly all loose ends from previous titles, including the final moments of key figures in the series' history."

^^^ Nothing there indicates anything as far as gameplay or graphics is any different. You're an idiot for saying this looks better than BC3. What a tool you are, tool!
AAACE5  +   1443d ago
Seems like the story might jump around as much as Black ops!

@Movements... Those are only pics man. CoD games usually show good pics, but to get the game to run fast, details are lost! It will look good, but keep in mind that this could happen. Especially if the game is expected to run as rumored.
BattleAxe  +   1443d ago
I'm glad they're sticking with the storyline from MW2. I'm actually kind of excited after reading this. We'll see if they can pull this one of, and if they can pull it off, then they will have redeemed themselves in my eyes. Black Ops 2......I'm not so sure. I think I would refer to Balck Ops as "Black Mark on the series".

static dx9 environments with cs skins gooo!!!!!111 can't wait for the announcement on surf maps and jumping maps. possibly aim maps. May as well just call it CoD: CS edition

day 1 purchase!!!!!!111

well thinking about it. skyrim and bf3 is gonna look like crap on 360

ps3 gamers have uncharted 3

pc gamers have bf3 and skyrim in all its glory.

Xbox is like oil. You restrict the flow of oil and the masses pay up no matter what the cost at the pumps without as much as raising an eyebrow. restrict the flow of games on 360 and be amazed at how they buy junk to satisfy themselves.

SuperM  +   1443d ago
All the attention? Hardly a fact. It will get more attention than it deserves but BF3 will get a hell of alot of attention because it will be the best game this year. Thats what i believe anyway. The graphics and the realism in BF3 is just to good to be overlooked, even Medal of Honor which scored pretty low sold many million copies last year.
Hagaf22  +   1442d ago
Man, it's amazing, 2 weeks ago all you read were people talking about how they won't buy COD again. Then news comes out about it and everyone jumps back on the bandwagon...
NobleGamer  +   1443d ago
who knows this game can come back with a huge improvement and blow people away. The yearly milk was getting old, Black Ops i didn't even buy...because of Treyarch lol I borrowed from friend.
But MW3 could be great!
Cenobia  +   1443d ago
MW2 was far shittier than Black Ops. I didn't play the entire MW2 campaign, but Black Ops is a much better multiplayer experience and a better value overall.

I'd put money on MW3 dropping split screen for example. I'm not looking forward to constant perks either. Black Ops was at least able to reel the perks in a bit.

IW is a shadow of what it was (if you thought they were that great to begin with), so I'm not sure why you immediately dismiss Treyarch.
trancefreak  +   1443d ago
I hate cod except mw1. But black ops was mhh'k.

I would not drop 60 on it though.

For the love of god I hope this game is revamped!

Activision have been recycling this every year with a just a newer cover and skin coat.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1443d ago
At this point, I don't even expect it to be relatively good. It will be another generic modern shooter.

Back in the day, call of duty was great, now-not so much.
DtotheRoc  +   1442d ago
VERY TRUE treyarch has been horrible in teh past but you gotta give them credit they're the first ones with COOKABLE grenades in cod's history (cod 3) don't believe me look it up. But still the first one back in 2001 was better on pc than black ops in 2010 now how sad is that? lol. anyway if they make a return to form and make this more like cod 4 I will be soooo happy. remove that sleight of hand pro crap--better yet get rid of PRO perks entirely since they're just way too overpowered for an online game. With sleight of hand reload faster makes sense but then make it so they have to give up damage too or accuracy or something or silent footsteps or marathon....ALL of those are the most powerful perks right? so then you shoudln't be able to stack ANY of them. eliminate teh spawn camping cod 4 had some great level design especially crash which was always the best one. and for PC bring back the lean and dedicated servers. and this game will eb great BUT hey i did like the idea of wager matches so if they could implement a similar gamemode would be pretty cool but i prefer having to EARN perks and weapons rather than buy cuz then it'll have some replay value again. i did like earning those titles from mw2. and finally just TAKE OUT THE NOOB TUBE entirely. it doesn't belong in any online game keep for SP i'm fine with but out it from competitive MP. THAT would be my IDEAL cod and put it back on top at least as far as my friends and i are concerned. OH any only ONE attachment. not this i can have dual mags and a silencer shit. BALANCE is the biggest issue with this series right now. and bring back the bolt-actions. bring back the cheytek but give it some acutal punch with better sound and bring back the m40a3 my favorite and the r700 and add a new one too!

First time it really became noticeable that COD was on track to release every year and that it was being milked to hell.
xtremeimport  +   1443d ago
why do people continue to buy these games?! like the experience does not change enough to buy a new one each year. I will never understand buying a new game every year at $69. even sport games blow my mind.

Im not the biggest cod fan, but thats not even the point. I would have a hard time buying a game I love every year when the experience isnt much different.
wedgie  +   1443d ago
Definitely agree. I am close to even getting that way with Assassin's Creed as well.
DtotheRoc  +   1442d ago
@ wedgie, there's a HUGE difference thoguh where as AC is a FULL game of around 15 hours + tons of extras. cod is a linear 8 hour campaign with little emotion and interest. dude ACB was probably the best game of last year since it was multiplatform and had one helluv an innovative MP experience that wasn't just tacked on like everything else these days. god of war 3 and heavy rain were also fantastic games yes but they're not multiplat or have that mcuh replay value so that's why i left those out.

Day 1 rent for sure. Got Drake coming out a week before got battlefield 3 in the same time frame so out of luck. I just want to play it for the story since I have played the first 2 for the same reason. I'm so tired of CoD, maybe if it didn't get milked every year I might be looking forward to it, but just like madden I can't justify buying a title from the same series year after year.

Fucking 10 year old kids are ruining this generation...

The only people who still buy CoD's are noobs to gaming. A veteran doesn't buy milked military shooters.
They are only modifying cod 4 over and over again FFS.

It sells like crack and has the worst hit detection ever.
Don't tell me that "it's a man's game" fucking 8 year old kids are finishing the CoD campaigns without any difficulty, games like boom blox and mario galaxy are more challinging.

Ok big boy. Cod games are not easy on the hardest setting. You haven't played on the hardest setting if your think they are easier than mario games. come to think of it-I really don't know of any shooter thats difficult on normal settings...including the battlefield games. I like both though.
annus  +   1442d ago
They are all fucking easy on the hardest difficulty except for CoD1. I have finished them all on veteran and the last few haven't even be slightly hard.

annus 59 days ago "As much as a hate the recent CoDs, there is no way in hell I'd use so much money on a new engine if I knew it was going to sell millions anyway."

So you "hate" the recent cod's yet you play them all on the hardest difficulty. Why do you play games that you hate? You are full of shit.

and what do "real men" play big guy? I'd love to know what's considered a "mans game". Most likely any shooter you are good at right?

What type of "man" comments on a game he has no interest in?
if you just started gaming in the last 2 or 3 gens you really should just keep your mouth closed as you are certainly no vet...
madjedi  +   1442d ago
@vengeance "What type of "man" comments on a game he has no interest in?" Well since there commenting on something this is an interest though likely not exactly positive.

The same kind that likes to speak their opinion on a subject or topic is a part of their hobby, not a hard concept to comprehend really. What have you never heard 2 people arguing different viewpoints.

It sounds like your saying if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all, which is a stupid statement.

And to the people talking about cod's hardest difficulty not being is easy it's not hard it's cheap. I would call infinite respawning enemies till you hit a magical trip wire in the game or cheap ai that has tomahawk missile accurate grenades a poor substitute for being hard.

Don't know how many generations you claim to have under your belt vengeance, but not impressed by "old guys" claiming themselves a veteran gamer.

If you don't know what 5 and a half inch floppy is ect, don't be lecturing any newer gamers about using the term vet.

Congradulations you remember when game were limited to 2d sidescrollers and whose story was usually meager and character development was none existent till the snes or later.

Better a guy that started at the ps1/dreamcast era, than the new generation of gamers that started gaming this and hold sales numbers and metacritic scores as though it is the word of god.

Biggest game of the year probably will be la noire, most sales mw3 likely. To the retard that calls anyone a fool for not believing mw3 will be the biggest game of the year.

First define a subjective term such as biggest in which everyone will agree with, then pose your question again before calling people fools on a subjective topic.

@vengeance If your going to belittle him, which is so manly and mature btw, could you at have semi decent grammar.

VenGencE999  +   1442d ago
1. Still doesn't answer the question. What type of person comments on something that they hate? I'll answer for you since you have no idea.

A person that enjoys spewing hate while others who are TRULY interested in the game would like to talk about details of the game, not field insults from others who think they are stupid for enjoying what they enjoy.

What's to argue? He thinks the game is garbage and is here to belittle those that like it. How is that debating?

2. He has every right to discuss and express his opinion about the GAME. But he's not discussing the game. He's insulting everyone who enjoys it. Are we not reading the same comments?

3. My grammar is off par? So bloody what? Does it negate anything I've said?

My issue with him was that I felt insulted at his comment and his comment irked me.

I don't care how my point came across to YOU. My only concern is that HE got the point.

Maybe before you add YOUR two cents in on HIS behalf (which is real sweet of you btw) you'll let him speak for himself? I'm sure he's a big boy and can respond to me, (which as matter of fact he has.)

No need to use him as a scapegoat, you called me out for reason so now that MY issue with HIM has been resolved what business do WE have?

Your scalding distaste for my poor grammar or my unmanly immature behavior?

the biggest game of 2011(shooter/FPS) for me is Battlefield 3..

PC version of course, because that's where it originated and that's going to be the best version. That's why CoD fails, there is no difference between consoles and pc and the old ass engine they've been using for years fails for us PC gamers desires

Mw3 sales-10+million

BF3 sales-2-3million

Chocoboh  +   1443d ago
Sales mean nothing when it comes to gaming. That's like comparing the Wii sales to Xbox360 or PS3 sales. Just because the console has a larger userbase doesn`t make it better, it just means bigger word of mouth. And as it is now every 10 year old gets their parents to buy CoD and in my opinion Counterstrike and TF2 are a million times better than CoD as well.
frostypants  +   1443d ago
The biggest game of the year is BF3, not this. C'mon, Kotaku, you know it to be true. I'm a fan of BOTH series, but get real...CoD has lost its momentum. Oh, it will SELL well...but that means nothing from a critical standpoint.

First I would probably get Dark souls, uncharted 3, Gears 3, Skyrm, and mass effect 3 would probably be out by the time Im close to done with those.
