Mark Rubin knew things had to change on the technical side to add females to Call of Duty.
ROFL. Just as bad as the next gen fishes.
"Call of Duty's Old Engine Prevented Addition of Female Soldiers" Probably because of Breasts.
This is called invisible innovation that only developers know about it . Don't talk about something you don't know about . Now shush ..
No seriously what do they have to add? A model and animations? What "technical" limitations are there? This is just utter nonsense.
You guys didn't get the /s lol
They weren't able to reuse the models from previous cod's due to breast and long hair! Lol! Can't go off spending money on a new female model now can we?! Hahaha! Oh activision, you so ridiculous.
Boob simulation would have crashed their engine i guess lol! I am confused as anyone here with this.
COD addicts are the only one who would be fed this bullshit happily.
How does an engine "prevent" you from having slightly different character models?
What the hell is this guy smoking? He thinks gamers are stupid?
Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
They shouldn't brought the subject , they simply didn't want to put womans before and now they want. But why say these bullshits ?. The argument was between people about womans not about the engine so no reason to bring bullshit statements..
it's the same engine
In the world of COD augmented=new.
Yeah total BS right? How does that even makes sense? More than likely they just didn't want to put the extra money in to make the animations and voice work original for female soldiers.
It's even more BS cuz it's the same damn engine.
That is the dumbest thing i have ever heard
Does this make the old CoD engine sexist?
There was an "old" engine?
Yeah, and they're still using it.
What a pile of bull. They think ppl are that stupid?? http://www.reactiongifs.com...
Let the V-bagging commence gentlemen.
Infinity Ward is sexist: Confirmed
Because blops 2 didn't have playable females in zombies....oh wait
Black Ops 1 had a playable female in one of the Zombie map packs as well. This is complete BS on their part, lol.
not defending Infinity Ward, but BLOPS 1 and 2 were both made by Treyarch. Treyarch did mention that they have made a lot of modifications to the engine used by IW in CODMW series. And even if they share the same core engine, i don't think they literally "share" each others changes to the engine.
So the engine is only allowed to work with short haired men?
How about the woman AI?
Next-gen boob AI?
Where does all the money from COD sales go? From my point of view I don't see any of it going into making the game any better. All this money and they can't seem to afford to make a new engine.
Ahh yeah good point, I suppose that is a much better use of the money too.
Make no mistake - they could easily afford to make new engine(S). But they don't both to - nay - they don't ever need to.
How would an out of date engine prevent a female character from being placed in the game? I'm probably done with cod this time seriously what a load of bull
The game engine prevented having female characters !? That doesn't make a shred of sense to me only furthers my assuptions that there game code must an inefficient and dated mess. Not saying there games suck but they should probably do some house cleaning before they release the next instalment of this series or start fresh on a efficient next gen engine before piling more and more code on the garbage engine pile.
I mean... First Fish AI, then 'next gen audio made possible by the new engine', and now THIS? Pathetic.
You forgot their "Beyond next-gen cinema quality graphics engine" claim they made last week. Were they now claim they're the ONLY company to take high resolution sources so that they can scale down the quality to fit in the game. HAHA completely ignoring the fact that ALL developers have been doing this for many, many years! Who can blame them for saying the stupidly idiotic things they say, their just catering for their demographic.
Anti-boobs engine : confirmed
I thought it was the same engine, only updated. Like Frostbite 3, not a new engine, just an enhancement of the FB2. Smells like BS...
Its basicly quake 3 engine from 1999, yup 14 year old, that 78 years in grafic engine years.
great read,cant wait to get my hands on a copy................ SO I CAN SNAP THE FUCKING DISC
Lolol, mental image of someone buying the game, rushing home, then rage-smashing the disc.
Nah, you do it in-store!
really... when i closed one eye and placed my thumb towards the sun i briefly caused all the nocturnal animals on the planet to come out of hiding this afternoon
Face/palm to the third degree.
The breasts reduced the frame rate to 30 frames per second, especially the the rocket firing nipples.
I thought they were machine gun jubblies?? http://youtu.be/I9zUZlF5DpU...
and i thought sakurai's no story/cutscene thing was bs lmao this makes no sense
Really, the "previous" engine couldn't handle adding breasts and longer hair to soldiers?
LOL. Old engine prevented a female character until now is funny because its the same old engine.
Didnt COD4 have a female pilot who you go save before the nuke goes off. The only one to ever exist...
And the President in black ops 2
Because their copy & paste formula wouldn't work, so they've actually had to create a female base model to slap a skin on..... poor them. ....It must of been so much effort for them to pull this one off!
infinity ward might be the first developer that makes me mad cause i feel like they treat me like an idiot
Let me get this straight - they had the Call of Duty Mutliplayer Reveal, this past Wednesday. In which, they finished the trailer by showing a female character. And now they say they can't do female characters? ----- EDIT: Ooops, I presumed they were saying they still can't still - provide that I knew they were still using the same old engine.
Ah yes...the "OLD" engine. But of course, how could I have been so naive? Silly me. Man these guys will say anything to get more exposure. I think/hope people are smart enough to see through this glitzy whiz bang buzzword garbage, but I doubt it. The "gotta have it" crowd will zip right out to buy it and then, as per usual, complain.
What a load of bs.
... sure it did, sure it did. Wasn't there a female pilot in COD 4, females in both Black Ops including the ones that were in the single player campaign, female civilians in MW2 and the daughter of that President of the Russian Federation in MW3?
wow...really? So these are gonna just sit there and blatanly insult our intelligence huh? Wow.
It's a character model and an animation. It has nothing to do wit the engine!!! NOTHING!!!!!!
This is deep bullsh!t at its best. LOL!
Sometimes I just have to wonder, that just maybe Infinity Ward and Treyarch are both made up of fresh college grads with zero experience in video game development. They are hired and thrown into a cubicle on day one and told to CTR+C This, and CTR+V That. They all work with this piece of alien technology called Quake Engine '99, and they have no idea how to use it, or how it works, they just copy paste certain functions from it, and paste together the next iteration of Call of Duty. The feature for female character models was always there, their retards and just didn't know where to find it. I'm not far off from the truth, I know it.
Swear I killed many females in the airport scene in MW2
ROFLMAO... "Old" engine....as if they have new engine now. And, it prevented adding female characters (and intelligent fish)
I swear the original MW had a female model in the campaign.
"Call of Duty's Old Engine Prevented Addition of Female Soldiers" ... but it's still the same engine. They've openly stated that they haven't created a new engine because it takes too much work. They're continuing to use the same old, tired, outdated engine based on id Tech 3 from 1999.
how did the engine prevent them from making a female skin? is this a satirical article?
