That all sounds...... fucking awesome.

#3 Posted by DoctorWelch (2765 posts) -

Did they also announce the feature of not being completely broken?

They seemed to fix every thing from mw2 in terms of balance.

Seeing as I play CoD games for the story, NONE of this intrigues me at all.

Wow, that sounds pretty cool. Hopefully they do a demo/beta of the game.
#8 Posted by TheLawnWrangler (1657 posts) -

alright... awesome. that's all pretty good! I like the movement of shotguns and machine pistols to primary!

when did COD multiplayer ever have vehicles? :S

#11 Posted by SumDeus (1857 posts) -

Nothing they say or do will make this a good game. I like the appearance customization, but that should have been in CoD4 anyway since Rainbow Six had it at the time.

World at War. 
 
And OH HELL NO they took out Commando...  :(
#13 Posted by Noodlearms (586 posts) -

Every part of me wants me to hate this game since MW2 is such a piece of shit, but god damn it I want it.  
 
Also, HUUUUUUUUUUGE INFOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!!1!!!!

#14 Posted by Peacemaker (1106 posts) -

Seems like these changes are for the better.  I felt that MW2 was too crazy with everything.  Maybe that was the reason I enjoyed the Halo Reach beta so much.  The experience felt more pure.  If the game turns out well I'll be on board.  The single player is looking really cool as well.

#15 Posted by Slurpelve (619 posts) -

Now I really want Black ops! I love Zombies mode in World at war, But I'm just curious about whats going to be new in this zombies mode.

#16 Posted by Grilledcheez (3958 posts) -

Well it sounds good...it also looked like a lot of fun in that video I saw, so I can actually say I'm looking forward to this more than I was looking forward to MW2 when it came out.

Please don't do that. All I see is "They're bringing more grenades!"
#18 Posted by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

Vehicles? 
 

#19 Posted by JacDG (2130 posts) -

If it's true (and the game is balanced) man oh man will this be a fun game.

Create-A-Class 2.0 has been known for a while now.

It's probably not on every map, I believe that was the case with World at War? Maybe they'll add a special playlist for maps with vehicles or something? I am worried about it thought, vehicles do not belong in Call of Duty (in my opinion)
#23 Posted by Allprox (566 posts) -

Sounds Good. Shall be buying.

And call of Duty 3, so it was expected, they've been in every Treyarch COD game.

Based on my experiences with the CoD Ai, that is not a difficult accomplishment.

this is a good thing.
#27 Posted by Cramsy (1177 posts) -

wow, now I'm interested in Black ops. Balance FINALLY!

#28 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -

Lol at everyone thinking it'll be balanced.

#29 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

sounds like a lot of great things in this game. it can also just be hype. i kind of want to preorder it now.

#30 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -

Customize your appearance? RC cars? Lunging forward fifteen feet with a knife?
 
 
This is officially no longer like Call of Duty and more like some lame Halo game.

#31 Posted by CitizenKane (10508 posts) -

Wow, all of that sounds awesome (especially the kills with killstreaks won't add to your killstreak total).  This news has actually got me a lot more interested in the game.

#33 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6311 posts) -

Eh...I don't know if I'm happy with the whole "Killstreak rewards don't add to your number" deal, I think they had that right in MW2. Also, why get rid of the nuke? It'd cut down on boosting but it's still pretty awesome to get one legitimately. Vehicles irritated the shit out of me in World at War, but if they make them easier to destroy it could work. 

#34 Posted by Dylabaloo (1549 posts) -

Prolly get it down the line for those sweet ass zombies.

Actually that's awesome. It means we won't be getting stupid helicopters or jets (or Black Ops' equivalent of those) every 30 seconds. Killstreaks party ruined MW2 for me.

That's probably the exact reason they'd get rid of the nuke.
#37 Posted by T0mF5 (929 posts) -

All of these changes so far sound perfect.

#38 Posted by Stupot (176 posts) -

Vehicles won't be a problem aslong as they don't add to your killstreaks. As in WaW you could get dogs from simply sitting in a tank and spawn camping. Also being slightly more modern than WaW it should be easier to take vehicles out.
 
But with killstreaks not building your streaks and with the return of customizable killstreaks there will be alot of camping, possibly more so than MW2. Also from what the trailers have shown the guns still have barely any recoil or idle sway, which is bad seeing as the ACR in MW2 was more acurate than a sniper at long distances. I've also heard that they have removed Stopping Power and included juggernaut which im happy with as you'll die a little slower than MW2 which imo was too fast. So i'm still on the side lines for this one, it has potential to be the best Cod yet but its what the community does with it which ultimately decides its outcome, for example MW2 and OMA noobtubs.

You mean not having any AI at all and being completely scripted?
#45 Posted by ViciousReiven (824 posts) -

Man the more I hear about this the more it seems to be turning into the best CoD yet.

Noooo! not Juggernaut.  I hate that perk. 
 
OT: some of those things may actually make COD balanced.  Now if they can fix 3 year old glitches...

Haha, I thought the same thing. 
Now all enemies will have the accuracy of Peyton Manning, with the arm strength of Randy Johnson
#49 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

Most of the changes have some optimistic tone to it; so this ought to be a bit better than MW2. However I'm not holding my breath just yet; while there's some tweaks here and there they need to iron out the bugs, glitches, exploits and bad map designs that also plagued MW2.

#50 Posted by Kiro (288 posts) -

Treyarch should get Keifer Sutherland to do some voice acting in Black Ops. Having Jack fucking Bauer yelling at you was the best part of the mediocre campaign in World at War
