There are more than 500 developers working on the Call of Duty series , Activision has revealed.
And still, this franchise is nothing, compare to BF3's visual??... I don't care how many fantards devs are in there working, the more important is the advancement of graphics.
With 500 workers I would expect a big improvements instead of taking a tiny step forward in each game.
Guarantee 400 of em are doing doing nothing but mapping
@evrfighter Maybe, if thats the case i want all the maps to be awesome lol. I actually dislike a few of them in Mw2 + Black ops.
i know its still looks like CoD 4 graphics wise if MW3 had better graphics I'd purchase it hands down. On the other hand BF3 has amazing graphics and thats why I'm buying it so I can enjoy the graphics :) I'll just stare at my monitor.
People always seem to chant the mantra 'graphics don't make a game!', yet your 5 agrees suggest alot of people feel differently. Oh wait, Call of Duty has to operate under different rules than all other games, how could I forget...
u wish graphics was the only thing that it sucks for MW3 game mechanics are still the same.. just as gameplay and everything else u can only expect new maps and a really short campaign why dont just do some DLC activition? oh right.. the money
the last step should be the improvement of graphics. if modern warfare 3 had visuals far beyond bf3, it would still be mw3. makes no difference regardless. im all for graphical advancement, but that should be the last step, not the first, once your base game play and online experience has improved. things of that nature are far more important than looking pretty. im not defending the series, but that should apply to most games, cod included.
500 developers from 7 different studios.
LOL and they must be working hard on the next box art cause graphic wise is like MW2
@Agent Funny thing is, in the BF BC2 days, all the BF fanboys were saying 'gameplay over graphics anyday!' and 'fuck crysis 2, gameplay over graphics' LOL
Are you fucking kidding me? Graphics is all that matters, really? No, graphics aren't nearly as important as you seem to think, CoD may have some slightly outdated graphics but that's cause it works, it doesn't need super ultra mega upgrades every game cause it's perfectly good looking as it is, now the last 4 years what has been happening with CoD, it changes, it progresses, it gets better. So you can take your stupid graphics and shove them up your ass cause they don't hold a candle against gameplay.
COD gets better as it progresses? It's like you said, it doesn't need upgrades. It generates them money, Activision know it works, and will keep doing it until it stops working. Which won't be any time soon.
"now the last 4 years what has been happening with CoD" getting worse and selling more
Gameplay is really important but look at it this way, if graphics and tech didn't matter why the hell would we upgrading systems ever few years? If gameplay was all that mattered, we'd still be playing on our old NESs.
mw3 gfx are very good with great 60 fps and the gameplay is, well.....cod gameplay is the best i cannot wait for mw3, it's gonna blow everybody away(except some sad haters LOL)
@Agent_hitman Graphics are the most important thing in gaming? Really?! There's these little things called gameplay and fun that beg to differ.
That´s for sure. IMO 1 man is enough - ctrl+c/ ctrl+v, logo a textures changing and it´s done
Not all about graphics but BF3 is the superior game
Oh! You have played the final build of BF3? Awesome. Please, tell us all how it is? You must have it in order to claim it's the "superior game". How on earth did you get a copy of not only BF3 early, but MW3 early to compare?! Wow. You're a special guy.
And it's still not even competing with games half as notable....good to know where the talent is not in the industry. Or, not that there's no talent at Acitivision, but no ability of them to use it because they're not being allowed? Probably the later. Activision sucks when they have a popular game, they poke at it's fanbase until they all leave for better, more innovative games. Go try to but a Guitar Hero game, you can't for a reason.
I'm pretty sure that you can find Guitar Hero games in stores still. The last release was actually among the best in the series, despite the fact that the franchise is in a holding pattern at the moment.
Damn that's quite a lot of people
500 developers and no innovation?
I think the ones who try to innovate 'disappear'
It seems that these developers fix certain things, but make other things worse so when it comes round to yet again another CoD or MW they can fix those problems in turn creating new problems. Its a cycle and the only way for Activision/Devs to justify why you should buy their game. When you read articles, alot of them are... 'Well we fixed x' 'Oh and Y is different now because you can now....'
still the game looks and plays the same as cod 4
Ok than: Call of Duty 500: *insert sub-tittle in here* on 2015 :P
im going to call it right now. I say 5 more cod releases and cod is done.(im talking about retail games)
Over 500 Developers Working on the same Engine and formula, damn what a boring job
500 individual minds, and not one spark of creativity. I've shown more innovation on LPB, maybe they should hire me.
from people that couldn't even create a website let alone a damn game. Certain people like the franchise, if they changed it, people would backlash against it and they'd lose sales. I don't like COD I don't play. I don't have to spend time bitching on gaming sites and youtube. The way I see it, the biggest fans complain the most. The want the best out of the game and care enough to constantly complain. If you don't care for COD you don't have to go out your way to tell everyone. Just keep scrolling when you see COD news. Just my two cents.
Possibly. A lot of people got into COD at COD4. To see what became of the product after that... was no doubt going to cause an uproar. But yeah, flaming every article is pointless.
You know, I used to believe in the whole COD4 was teh best argument, but then I got on it a month or so ago and I realized why I stopped playing it in the first place - everybody quicksniping and camping. Seriously - say what you will about QS in MW2, but it's a million times worse in COD4.
Haters gonna hate.....lol
Well at least that's 500 people with a job.
500 people: "Hey Bobby Kotick what would you like us to do today?" Bobby Kotick: "Just press copy and paste and then extra vacation for all" 500 people: "ok...."
Hey that's BS!.. They also change the names of a few things :P
'Too Many Cooks...'
I bet 90% of them don't do shit and the other 10% are the hard workers. Probably the reason nearly every new COD is identical since COD4. Except that every new COD gets even more crappy killstreaks and perks that are beyond cheap.
499 of them must be playing MW2
One developer can do the trick.
tripwire who make red orchestra have less than 10 developers, and that game out does COD in every way lol.. proof is in the pudding, although most games are made by a team of smaller devs and out do COD but meh, some games dont appeal to non skilled players or 12 year olds :P
So, if someone doesn't like the game you like they are either non-skilled or 12 years old? Irony.
Not at all, i play COD.. but the casual and younger gamers don't appreciate games that take more skill. Since mw2 COD has become infested with casual types and younger players who take pride in sitting in a corner a full match to gain a chopper gunner.
I agree some children play the game, but you will get more of a diverse group when you have a large sample in the group. For instance, a game like COD will have more annoying kids and casuals as a game like Deus Ex, since the numbers in each group are significantly different, with such a vast number of subjects in the COD group. That makes sense, right? haha
