No it is not 2007. What so many have been saying has happened: the Call of Duty franchise has officially run out of ideas, jumped the shark, etc.

Activision has confirmed the name, the October 25 release date, and that it is a “reimagining” of MW, in a different reality, not the remaster.

I enjoyed COD up until and including COD 4 MW, not into online play so only ever play them for the campaigns and COD, COD2 and MW1 were pretty entertaining, might be worth having a look at this one again after the last turd they dropped in BLops4

Imma play the shit out of this game!
I still play WWII daily.
I would love a reboot of every game in the series... For the modern mechanics of the game.

What’s next? Another World at War but done in an alternate WW2?
I mean...like..I hope so.

holy shit, are they depicting the Al-Queda group White Helmets? lol

Yeah, they ran out of idea's. I may end up playing anyway as it seems shooters have been rather lackluster for me lately. So we will see. Maybe may end up being a good game?

I'm on the 5th reboot of Spider Man since I've been alive most within the last 10 years...5 Star trek series-2 movie...

I like the fact that they've finally upgraded to a new engine. I do like it that they went with a modern setting, and not too far backwards or forward in time. And yeah, when I saw the white helmets BS I was like WTF? Honestly, I haven't played a single CoD game since the original MW came out, this one makes me a bit interested, so that's progress. I just hope that they'll introduce a good SP campaign and interesting design elements.

Yeah, thinking on your Star Trek example made me think perhaps I might be a little biased against redoing MW. After all, I love the new Star Trek rebooted franchise movies, and it doesn’t take anything away from loving the other Star Treks.

Maybe this will end up worth playing? We shall see in October.

If they manage to bring a campaign like the one of the original MW then yes, this may be worth it after all... but, it IS CoD...

Call of Dooty : Moderner Warfare.
didnt they already do this with the remaster??? But they took all the dlc that was originally released for the game and RESOLD it back to us a peice at a time for like the 3 or 4th time in 20 years. I've lost count of the times old CoD1 maps like Carentan and Brecourt were sold as new DLC for newer games with newer textures and sprites here and there. CoD1 maps were in the game till CoD4.

My boycott of Activision games will stay in its place and its been solid since 2009. Warframe seems to get most of my attention now and that game is free.

I was surprised with WWII, was pretty good and made me remember the good old times, but before WWII the last COD I bought was MW2 and it was the last one that was "decent". Boycott Activision and EA Games and we might see some changes.

I didnt like MW2 - I thought it was too far removed from the things that made the original MW great. Couldnt get a refund at the time because steam wasnt in the business of giving refunds. played it a totall of 2hrs over a few sessions and never went back to it again.

WWII i heard was pretty good till the honeymoon period was over and they released an update that packed it full of lootboxes and microtransactions. Basically, the game was a trap. Activision knew that people didnt like lootboxes so left it out of the game till it peaked before releasing a huge update which added it to the game.

A lot of things really. but a lot of it based on corporate greed, overpaid CEOs, CFOs and other executives. Most recently. They accounced that CoD: MWII was extremely well received, sold extremely well and was one of the best sellers in YEARS but then they turn around and fire/lay off 800+ staff. and announce bonuses of a few million for their execs.

Both the quality of EAs and Activision's games have suffered heavily over the years because exploiting minors & people who are addicted to gambling by adding soon-to-be-illegal 'legalised gambling' to the game to maximise profits -- their excuse is that they leave it up to 'player choice' but you either pay for 'shortcuts' or you go into an absolute shit slow grindfest for things that will have you not enjoying the game and thus feel that you need to open your wallet and pay for shortcuts to get into the game... EAs battlefront 2 was originally like this and FIFA was shady as fuck too... Locking a star player behind a paywall, telling people that the only way to get the player was via lootboxes then setting a time limit of two weeks for a chance to get said player while the actual chance of getting said player from the lootbox is 0.03-0.05% - this is exploitation. Because people just seem to have this condition that is called 'Fear Of Missing Out' so they throw all their months wages trying to obtain this player but get only junk in return.

Lesser reasons are politics or gender politics. virtue signalling and all that BS. So many minorities, races or cultures feel that they have to be represented in games so the game panders towards them.


Pretty much a lot of shady dodgy greedy shit.

I'm just saying... I'll use CoD WWII as an example..
If you're good you don't have to pay for anything.. Lol
I've been accused several times of buying stuff that unlocked simply by playing.
The only thing I bought was the game itself.
What I do like about the stuff they sell is that it's used by stupid people most often and is actually useful because they stand out.
And let's be honest... Most people that pay to advance still suck because they never did those side missions that make people better at the game.

I get your point and the Star wars thing went way to far...

What I do like about the stuff they sell is that it's used by stupid people most often and is actually useful because they stand out.
And let's be honest... Most people that pay to advance still suck because they never did those side missions that make people better at the game.

I get your point and the Star wars thing went way to far...
CoD is only one example.


::EDIT::

Red dead 2 is a good example with the gold bars. Everything in that game is expensive while earning gold bars or enough gold bars to buy something decent takes a looooooong time.

Battlefront 2... Pre-overhaul Battlefront two would need a player to play a minimum of 70hrs to be able to get enough points/crystals/diamonds (whatever in game currency they used) to be unable to lock any of the heroes like Darth Vader or Hans Solo in the game and loot boxes would give you currency towards that but again there is that 0.03-0.05% chance that you might not even get that currency package.

How many months would it take for you to unlock Darth Vader before you could play him for like 5 or 10mins, die and start the grind all over again?? if the average person can only game for around 1hr a day after work or maybe 2-3hrs during the weekend - how long would that take you to unlock a 70hr character for 5 or 10mins? You would get annoyed - I would get annoyed. That is EA exploiting the situation to make you buy their currency so you can use it to have a shortcut... Of course you dont *NEED* to buy it. But EA be like "B-b-b-ut dont you wanna play as Darth Vader and 'force choke' everyone and swing a lightsaber around??"

Nah - If thats the way EA choose to play their games then thats something i can do without. When EA and Activision are out there trying to monetize *EVERYTHING* this is one person you can count on, not to buy their games.

Black Ops 4 is made to continually milk you... And it sucks bad....
I've never seen call of duty anything cheap let alone part of a humble bundle...WaW still sells for more than you can get BlOps 4..I think you can still get it for $12 until June

I wouldn't mind another modern shooter that isn't shitty fetch quests which seems to be the rage of modern gaming these days, but this seems desperate. If they make it good, which I doubt it will be, I would certainly be interested. But rebooting the game after just doing a remake a few years ago is just awkward. Just make a new modern themed SP shooter and maybe throw in a dash on realism and make better shooting/movement mechanics. A bit of squad commanding would be nice to.
