Is there any reason to get excited for this? Anything?

#1 Edited by Adrian79 (173 posts) -

I pretty much dropped out of BO2 about 6 months ago and im still feeling burnt out on the whole franchise. Im not feeling at all hyped about the new game but im wondering if thats because i havent paid much attention to it, so does this instalment look like it will actually revamp the series and give it the kick up the arse that it needs or is just another bland by-the-numbers cod game like MW3 and BO2?

It's CoD, it'll have a pretty good campaign, the MP will keep you entertained for a few weeks. Rinse. Repeat.

It seems fine. To me all CoD games are fine, at least campaign wise.

Maybe the series just isn't for you anymore, and that's fine. When the reviews come around take a look at a few of em an maybe watch the inevitable Quick Look and that'll probably give you a good idea of whether they've made the changes necessary to hook you again. I feel like saying anything else right now is jumping the gun a little bit. It'll be a solid game at the very least.

I'm not that excited. Going to be spending my money on a lot of other games besides Cod.

Yeah I can't really get over my CoD fatigue either. At this point I have no idea what they could do to get me back...

World War 2, that'd do it.

You will squeeze the left trigger and tap the right trigger in short, controlled bursts. A lot.

I have to agree with you there, as much as people complain that WW2 has been done to death W@W is still one my favourite games in the series. Not sure what it is about that setting, the atmosphere, guns, blowing up Nazis (human not zombie) just feels far more fun that the near-future crap we've been fed for the last few years.

I did not play CoD since MW2. I actually might pick this one up. Think I'm ready and waited long enough to care again :)

I want WW2 AND dogs. I would play a COD game for that.

Do you actually think that aside from the gimmick of America not being Number One that this game will do anything particularly different in terms of gameplay, or do you properly think that it's just a nice plot device for more nationalistic tripe and being able to show major cities in ruin in a way that won't upset so many people?

Yeah it's something about the setting and the older, slower guns that I really love. Also those WW2 shooters had way more memorable music (probably due to the more romantic, epic nature of the war than TERRORISTS IN A DESERT PLACE). W@W was fantastic and COD2 remains one of my favourite shooters along with MOH: Frontline (or was it Allied Assault?).

You like CoD?

You like new CoD maps?

You like Nintendogs?

Did you enjoy the previous CoD's multiplayer?

Do you enjoy being in a matchmaking queue with the majority of CoD player and not enjoy being in games with only MLG players and glitchers?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you have something to be excited about.

If you like Call of Duty and want to play it on a next gen system, then you have plenty to be excited about.

Call of Duty: Distress (First-person Sci-fi Survival Horror)

Always online. Multiplayer only. 64 player co-op. Gamers play as space marines crash-landed on one of possible 7 planets, faced with bloodthirsty alien monsters. Different climates to survive, different night/day cycles for each planet and a weather system that can heavily impact gameplay. Random events, positive or negative, occur each game. Learn how and when your enemy strikes. No respawning. No weapon unlocks. Open-world game. Limited ammo and resources. You can scavenge, build and repair fortifications, set traps and terraform/dig trenches and barricades. Stick together. Or don't.

Survive.

If you're tired of shooting dudes and leveling up by shooting dudes than this CoD probably isn't changing that very much. I for one am not tired of it and may never tire of it.

They got aliens now so theres that, doubt it will be as good as zombies though.

Seems like it could be alright. The gameplay is always fun.

Cat DLC.

#29 Posted by Gruff182 (857 posts) -

CoD lost its magic for me once the original Infinity ward split and then that was proven once Titan Fall was announced.

I've not found anything exciting since about any CoD, especially considering Bad Company 2 and then BF3 was in the fold. If I didn't have a PC I'm sure it would be different.

Really interested in seeing how Ghosts and BF4 do, considering this is the first time console gamers get a first real taste of Battlefield. Of course CoD will still outsell both and thats a real shame.

This being next gen, CoD is looking particularly underwhelming and nowhere near the league of Dice and Respawns work.

I was kind of excited for Black Ops 2 and enjoyed playing the mp for quite a bit (i was even suckered into buying all the dlc by my friends) and i quite enjoyed it. But with this new COD what are they adding to differentiate it from the previous entries, while BLOPS2 was the same game they at least got across the new features they were adding and tweaking, like the weird story branching, new loadout style, and revamped emblems; that made me excited to get back into it and see them first hand. With Ghost all i know is Aliens...Dogs.....And fish, and are they removing some Treyarch specific features like MW3 again (dolphin diving...emblems..party games)? Well i dont remember where i was going with this so: FIN

I fell off Call of Duty hard after Black Ops. The stories just got more nonsensical on MW, and the multiplayer continued to be Counterstrike with the skill removed.

Series is just too simple to hold my interest compared to what else is out there.

#32 Posted by jgf (392 posts) -

Funny thing is, the biggest issue I have with CoD Ghosts is the dog. I don't like shooting dogs and I don't like sending them to fight for me. It feels like sending a little child that does not know what war is about and only acts because it tries to impress me to the frontline. Hope the dog part is optional and they don't make an effing disney movie tragedy out of it.

@flacracker: Yeah I know that dogs in warfare are real. I would have the same problem in real life. I can't stand sending an animal to fight for something it does not comprehend at all. As a soldier I agreed to fight for my country. I know about the consequences and I made an informed decision.

Its not that I burst in tears when I have to shoot a dog in a freaking videogame, I just don't like it.
