One of the latest interviews with creative strategist for Infinity Ward Robert Bowling. A lot of big reveals from him including QuickScope, a change on the Melee System, Rewarding objective players and more.
That's a really good interview. Robert Bowling never really answers the questions directly though. Hmmmm...
I hope Quickscoping has been taken out of this one. I can't stand people who do that. It's just, for lack of a better word, retarded. haha I'm sort of excited for this game, but I hope it plays more like CoD4 and less like MW2 and Black Ops. I want the gameplay to rely more on YOU actually doing the killing and NOT YOUR PERKS! I can't stand seeing some guy get like 10-15 kills in a row from a harrier or a gunship up in the air just killing people like crazy. And the planes shouldn't stay in the air nearly as long as they do. I'm thinking like 15-20 seconds max or make it like in CoD4, where you could actually take the planes and helicopters down with a reasonable amount of ammo. I can empty every last bullet I've got into a helicopter in MW2 and it'll take me 2 or 3 deaths to destroy it. Also, I wish they'd bring the price of map packs down to like $10. Even that is too high, but that's more reasonable. Either that or give us more than 5 maps for that $15. And while I'm on that subject, I think we should be able to use the dlc from the previous MW games on the new game. It's ridiculous to buy the dlc and then not be able to use it once the new game comes out. Hell, if you bought all the map packs for Black Ops and the game new, you spent right at $100+ for that game. That's crazy, unless the map packs could carry over. They ought to give us dedicated servers (on consoles) as well considering the amount of money this game brings in.
If you're tired of the Blops killstreak and perk system there are barebones game types that takes care of that. Btw, IW please give me a great bolt action rifle, like the M40A1.
the M40A1...brings back so many memories xD
@ blumatt its not infinity ward that decides the prices of things. It the evil giant that is activision
@blumatt A lot of those reasons are the reason I will never buy COD new. They don't do anything about the hacked rooms, glitchers, dedicated servers yet they easily are the richest game company ever. They then have the audacity to still charge 10 dollars for a 4 year old map pack (COD4) on a game filled with hackers, not to mention the 15 dollars for 4 maps.
why do they keep showing clips from black ops?
LOL! yeah...it does worry me too cod4 on pc owned mainly cuz lobbies with admins if they bring that back i'd probably pick this game even though i have learned to absolutely despise the cod formula mainly for it's ower-powered killstreaks, boring map design, and horrendous spawn system that makes trapping FAR too simple.
Beats around the bush too much but understandable that he can't go into detail yet Just hope MW3 retains the roots of MW1 but more important than that, the series needs an overhaul. MW3 needs dedicated servers, a ton of new modes/community features like Halo has for free, and needs to overhaul everything from prestige/ranking to unlocking weapons to killstreaks. MW1 to MW2 was a sequel-worthy jump, but they went in a horribly unbalanced direction that sucked the soul out of COD4. I hope that MW3 can refresh the experience, but they need to reinvent everything they have IMO, down to the small things that people have become too familiar with Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst
I see this so much. Going back to cod4 roots. You know I used to gain killstreaks, die, then do it again. I also used to strap on 3 nades and spam nades everything along with everyone else. cod4 graphics, gameplay and gunplay hasn't changed. It's the same game with a bloated perks and killstreak system. So you're telling me. If they went and stripped these elements then you'd be happy? Go play cod4 dude. The only difference between infinity ward games and treyarch games is that iw makes insanely good maps. That is why cod4 is so memorable to you guys. But you can kiss that goodbye because all of iw's talent has moved on to ea.
cod4 isn't playable on teh console whatsoever...unfortunatley no cod is. so don't even say that man. you only spammed grenades cuz the admin didn't kick you for being a douche. dont' bring that garbage play into SD that[s for sure. the killstreaks and Pro-perks need to be removed entirely and go back to cod4's roots. it's teh best in teh series anyone will agree with this. the map design yes was awesome indeed buyt the it was the extremely balanced gameplay and control or lobbies by admins that made that game so pro. mw2 and black ops both are polluted by garbage 15 year olds that are both annoying and not even legally allowed to have teh game lol
I may actually get this if only for the sniper lobbies. I am a sniper, plain and simple. No matter what shooter it is, if there's a sniper rifle in it, you'll find me sniping. :)
As long as the maps are big with good spots for the sniper lobbies. I wouldn't want to play a sniper match in a cqc map.
do you actually use the scope or are you just another kid using that "quick scope" nonsense? everyone says "ima sniper, ima sniper" but i never actually see some one sniping just a guy running like a chicken with out a head QS people. they arent snipers and will never be in my book.
I can't quick scope. At all. I snipe the way I was meant to. Holding my breath while aimed down the scope. I get called a hard-scoper all day, and it doesn't bother me a bit.
i hate quick scoping to. it's not that i can't do it. it's that i don't want to do it. to me it feels like cheating. it's a bunch of bullsh*t i haate people who say "ur a hard scoper" im sorry first it's called sniping. and second it's the way ur supposed to snipe. i can't believe there putting quick scoping back into call of duty. it wrecked MW2.
Fantastic interview. He is very well spoken. Glad to hear they are taking the fan feedback and incorporating it into their games.
you must have been hearing a different guy speak, maybe you are referring to the host? He was speaking in riddles, beating about the bush and going round in circles repeating himself. Robert Bowling has always been that way, he doesn't seem to have the ability to have a straight answer to a straight question.
I believe MW3 will blow everyone's expectation.
seems like mw 3 will be very interesting :)
really good interview, Im getting excited for MW3...
So he admits COD is all about you and your gun, Meaning they encourage Lone wolf Rambo wanna be gameplay. Saved me $60.
No, you weren't listening - he specifically said that it was all about you and your gun, instead of perks and killstreaks, not instead of teammates. He was specifically addressing the complaint that killstreaks and some perks were overpowered in MW2. I would suggest waiting for actual details to be released on multiplayer before judging whether the game will be good, but my guess is you've already made up your mind.
I love to run into kids that try to "Rambo" it on COD. They get utterly slapped by my team and I. All that "No teamwork" crap on COD is BS. You can actually communicate with your whole team on COD games, no squad based chat.
What's wrong with lone wolfing it? I'm not much of a CoD fan anymore, but I find it ridiculous that people think if you're not working as a team all the time, then you're some kind of rude, unskilled jack*ss noob. I bought the game so "I" could have fun, not so I would be obligated to make sure others are having fun as well. If it's an objective based mode, then I go for the objective or at least help people on my team go for the objective by playing lone wolf at the enemies flag base or domination point. If it's team deathmatch and people are shouting into my headset telling me to come with them or do what they say in an attempt to try a more tactical approach (which usually ends up failing horribly), then I'll just mute and ignore them. I don't want other people telling me how to play my own damn game, I play for fun, I don't take it as serious as other people.
yea , you are right , i play alone , i don't know how to play as a team , i always get afraid of making someone lose .. the reason i play alone is that it's alot more fun , i kill alot more , the gameplay is much exciting because it's fast but not fast that i don't know what to do like some people that pretend that they are good by moving fast , i always know what to do , i know if i move one wrong step i'll die , that's how cod is , one mistake and im dead ... i kill alot but i still lose , that's the good thing about teams , you win but you don't kill alot , sometimes when i play alone i kill 40 or 50 or even 60 in team deathmatch but i still lose XD , it's the team who's making you win not the kills , if you are the only one who kill then you wont win so the reason that i don't play as a team because i never saw someone who play like me and know what to do with me .. when i play with someone he expect from me to follow him , that's annoying because he move slow , he only kill a little ..etc
i dont have a problem with quickscoping(im not great at it though) but i do have a problem with every 12 year old brat complain if i kill them and im scoped in even for a second(hardscope=end of the world to them)...lets face it they ruined the cod franchise
lol , that's what's happening in Mw2 , it turn out that quick scope for pros and scoping for noobs , that's how they see it , i never liked the quick scope but it's ok with me , i don't care because i always beat them and make them play with a scope , i tell them scoping is alot better and quick scope is not realistic hahahahaha
I literally didn't learn anything new about the game from watching that 11 minute video...
I just want it to be and play like COD4:MW with just more balanced features added...that is all. :)
The reason I LIKE COD is because it's NOT realistic ;) I enjoy bc2 if I want realism and mw2 if i want an arcade style shooter ;) I hate the mw2 is not realistic and overpowered perks/weapons, etc... whiners! The perks and killstreaks is what make COD, COD. Battlefield 3 will have the amazing destruction, realistic gameplay,and real vehicles. COD will have overpowered perks/weapons, killstreaks, and the arcade style gameplay. PLEASE DON'T CHANGE THAT ;)
Did I like this vid? Hmmm Can't say...
Since World at War, I can think of maybe four or five maps that would be conducive to being sniper-only.
LOL He didn't answer anything and I'm sure there will be spawn killing in MW3. answer at 4:58
I am just not hyped for this as much as the next guy
Wont be joining those lobbies
I wish there were a gaming network where you had to be 20 years old or older to access the worst things about call of duty is the kids, I play with groups of guys in their 30s and 40s and they rock I don't even bother leaving party chat anymore, it sucks
i have 5 brothers that like cod so i can't say anything , i can't say i like it or not because im buying it any way xD ..
how do you translate this? i dont speak what i'm assuming is german? i would love to see this interview in words translated if anyone knows how to do that?
