An Intense Gaming TV editor reveals the truth about Call of Duty, as well as some harsh words for the needlessly enraged masses.
As in no access? If so, than ditto.
Thats like saying "shutup and eat your gruel"
If no one stands up to complain and make their voices heard, game companies will be content with churning out the same old recycled p.o.s for increasingly extortionate prices. The complaints here are justified and I am a HUGE fan of MW2. I don't care for this stupid argument that people are only complaining because its the best selling game. No, people are arguing because a cursory glance at the series will show you that no real efforts have been made whatsoever by the developers to invest in moving the series forward, instead opting to release glorified expansion packs of the same game on the same ageing engine. I really want COD to be good but I am not going to help fund those who unscrupulously exploit their loyal fan base either via frankly ridiculous DLC prices for little content, charging full price for a game that has hardly changed and hardly reflects the sentiments of the gamers it misleads about supporting.
You can b!tch and moan all you want but nothing is going to change. They sell way to many games to be worried about the few who complain about it. The only way to get through to them would be if people really were feed up with the game and they have a huge drop in sales. Frankly this game is Madden all over again. There are aspects of the game that I don't like as well. I have said this many times if they are not going to change their engine then why can't we use are old maps from previous Call of Duty games in this one. That would be a huge deal to me it would give the map packs much greater value. I have only got one map pack for Call of Duty and felt like it was a rip off and the simple fact that it costs to much and it is only good for a short period of time if you move on to the next game.
"You can b!tch and moan all you want but nothing is going to change." Correct. Activision doesn't care about a couple thousand people on the Internet who complain when MILLIONS of people will buy their game Day 1.
dude +agree and bubble for this part in particular: 'I don't care for this stupid argument that people are only complaining because its the best selling game.

20Million fans dont Bitch so why u Butt hurt??
I accidentally agreed when i meant to disagree.
Lol one bubble.
Quit b***hing about people b***hing about call of duty.
I hate when people write a complain article telling people to stop complaining. How ironic. Now Im complaining about their complaining article telling other to stop complaining. Now some please tell me to stop complaining so we can continue the never-ending cycle of telling others how we think they should feel. But really, a couple thousand people on the internet are loud and vocal and complain about COD and this guy getts a BUTTHURT and writes an article about it. Geez, it not like 20 million people wont go out and buy this game. Dont worry crappy blog writer, COD is still the most popular game and the couple thousand people online who spend most their time complaining, arguing and bitching wont change that. Your precious COD is safe, dont be threatened by a few people online who hate on COD. But screw this blog and Im going to say COD has gone downhill since 4 and is now for noobs who need to be able to get 12 kills by pressing right on the d-pad. I will not be buying COD or Battlefeild, both are played out and generic. Been there, done that. Can these devs make anything other than a military shooter? Apparently not, all their games are so similar, played one played em all. ohh and FPS are by far my favorite type of game, Ive just seen nothing interesting from either. Only thing that was even remotely interesting from either was the great visuals of battlefeild on PC. Other than that nothing at all looked interesting or new to me and since my PC is dated I will pass since all Id be getting is stale and boring old gameplay that is nothing new or special.

cod sucks end of story.
@3m1ll that was such a fanboy troll comment im actually ashamed to be within the same gaming platform as you. to say something so outlandish to xbox owners show some class a lot of ps3 owner do play other games. but a lot also on play cod. so stop disgracing the ps3 with you fanboyism
Complaining about people complaining is worse, imo.
I will stop Bitching when they don't release the same damn game every year with just new maps, and basically no innovation.
Some people just find their niche. It's like if you go to Burger King, for better or worse you know what you're going to get. If you get tired of the quality and flavor then go somewhere else. The establishment isn't going to change for you when people still enjoy what it has to offer. And on top of that, there are new gamers buying into the COD franchise for the first time each year. Those new customers didn't play all the past games and have no reason to think it's old or repetitive. Sometimes "innovation" will take a back seat to "stability" to level out for various reasons. If you want innovation, there are others out there. COD will be COD.
That Burger King analogy is great. Good job. And the fact the BK exists does not mean there is no other market for gourmet burgers, just don't expect the gourmet places to put up BK style revenues/numbers. Whatever people are willing to spend money on will continue to be made. No amount of complaining on the net will affect it. As gamers, your best strategy is to buy the good stuff and turn other people on to it rather than crying like a schoolgirl about some thing we don't like that puts up bigger numbers.
imo i think activision made a mistake releasing guitar hero every year and it goes for cod even if different developers work on the game the only 2 gameplay elements that are really different is zombies and spec ops.
Like they said if they change cod too much people will bitch about it if they don't change it enough people will bitch soo that's why they try to stay the same but people still bitch !!! And to all the people saying they won't buy it stfu you will prob buy it cuz all your friends will b playing it!!!!
Even the whiny douche bag kids who think that by somehow trolling COD it makes them a "cool niche gamer" are entitled to their opinion. So keep up the good work kids, totally unsuccessful as it my be :)
Even the whiny douche bag kids who thinkg that by somehow loving COD makes them a "cool popular gamer" are entitled to their opinion. So keep up the good work kids, totally outclassed CoD my bad compared to BF3.
I like playing cod for the SP. I dont play multiplayer in it, I have other games for that. But it doesn't need all the hate it gets.
You what? That's even dumber than this article.
How about NOOOO!
And people comparing guitar hero to cod or even Tony hawk I mean come on those two types of game were just trends you can't compare it too a fps fps were always popular since way back in the pc era with quake and unreal I could of told you guitar hero was only gonna last for soo long didnt need activision to kill it it would of died with anybody.
cod was and is a great fps experience i just hate it now lol activision just rehash the same old game every year and dont diserve any praise, i just wish the 20 odd million that buy it for wake up, i got bored after mw2, i mean how manyh years can people still enjoy it, cod mw3 is the same as cod4 just with a differnt story
I got bored after COD 4, and havent bought one since. But I still have no problem with people enjoying it, because it is fun and easy to pick up. IF FPS were not my favorite type of game, and I hadnt played so many of them over my life time then I might still be loving some COD too. But I just got bored and think these types of FPS are bland and boring now. However Im not pretentious and COD can still be fun to play at my friends house. Im not goign to pretend like its a horrible game, because it isnt. maybe I think they could do a better job, but its not nearly as bad a game as the haters pretend it is. Its simply played out, IMO the whole modern FPS thing is played out. Two publishers, 5 years, 9- YES NINE, modern war FPS(COD4, Waw, mw2, BO, mw3, BC1, BC2, MOH, BF3). Way played out IMO and I just see a huge lack of innovation and creativity from these devs. But I cant blame them for continuing to churn out these types of FPS if people still enjoy and buy their games.
Yea no i'll bitch cuz this game is an abomination to devs who who put so muchtime into making there games and get over shadowed by this yearly rehash pos game.
The CoD devs spent 2 years making this game, the same as a lot of other devs... Problem?
Mw2 is better than black ops in some ways and vice versa. If you don't wanna play it then don't buy it, and don't talk sh*t on a game people love, get over it.
n4g news for irrelevant gamers one bubble sexy
Lol how can I bitch about CoD when I dont play it? Even though alot of people buy this game.Why try too stereotype all gamers?
Dont like the bitchin, dont read about the bitchin. Its mostly N4G anyway tbh. TBH though, half of the people who have bitched about CoD will still get MW3, so yeah :/
People still don't get why COD is getting so much hate and just chock it up to fanboys bitchin. The game is hated because of its content, lack of progress, lack of in game engine advancement, lack of features, bad animation, DLC rape, and seasonal releases. These things are held as standard must haves by COD fanboys that claim that sales = a better game. The media then falls over itself awarding the game perfect scores and turning blind eyes to glitches and problems, claiming that "if you like cod, you'll love this one!" While for other genres, being more of the same is a death sentence Come review time. Mainly because smaller publishers can't afford 1000 dollar swag bags and first class tickets to review the same boring game again. Its a stale franchise. Its like hating Justin Beiber at this point, sure he sells millions but there are far better artists out there. Lets not pretend hes the best just because he makes the most money.
Listen buddy, I know you like the the recent call of dutys and naturally come to outrageous assumptions of why anyone couldn't, but don't just assume I hate CoD just because you don't. Not everyone who disagrees with you is some misguided hipster who hates what you like. For the record, CoD 4 and (to an extent) CoD 5 were awesome games. The campaigns had a nice blend of action-packed set pieces and interesting gameplay, and the multiplayer was balanced in fun, mostly due to very carefully chosen loadout options and the fact that higher killstreak rewards in the same life overrided lower ones, unlike MW2/Blops's stacking system. All the newer ones did was add more things and it turned into a big clusterfuck.
Those complaining about COD are the anti-social nerds living in their moms basement who think its cool to hate on popular things. You say Modern Warfare 3 has no improvements? Go do your research there's a ton of improvements. You say its using the same engine over and over again? Fun Fact: They heavily modify the engine with each release. So grow up kids. Some people actually play games for fun not for pretty graphics.
Even a few previewers said that the gameplay wasn't largely improved or even changed much. A couple of new weapons and killstreak rewards =/= gameplay improvements.
narutogameking's comment reminds me of this commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watc... I have 687 friends. This is living. Of course, you may be one of the millions of people that play CoD at the club while conversing with beautiful people about the lifetime of fun and orgies about to happen as soon as the match is over. You're probably one of the millions of people playing CoD in a basement (or some other game room equivalent) while being an anti-social nerd that THINKS a headset makes you social.
This guy isn't serious.... Is he?
