Holy thread necro Batman. Also, did you read that whole thing I wrote about people bitching because someone likes things that they don't? That was directed towards people like you.

Eh, he's responding to a bot. (the source of the necro-post.)

Herp derp Call of Duty herp derp remaking same game herp derp I'm so witty herp derp.

You're pointing out the incompetence of other people - in a rather unsophisticated fashion - while using "herp derp" yourself? Just... shush. Whenever you feel you need your fingers to scrape across your keyboard and hit "post reply", give it a second thought, and maybe a few reassuring subsequent thoughts.

Nah, every time I hear this idiotic argument (someone likes something that I don't? What a bunch of fucking losers!) I just slap my erect dick on the keyboard. I'm pretty much guaranteed that whatever ends up on the screen will be at the same level as whatever dumb arguments they have. For instance, yours.

Don't you mean Modern 4fare?

It'll be Modern War4Free.

No no no no, Modern 4Fee. The game will come in pieces, and they'll microtransact each individual piece of the disc.

The "main face" behind Call Of Duty, joined the company in 2006.

Call of Duty came out in 2003.

He joined the company in 2006

He was considered the most important guy developing the franchize, and he joined the company 3 years after it was created.

who cares its not like he had anything to do with making the games

Posted by chaosnovaxz

Love how any CoD article brings out multiple flamers. It's not my favorite franchise either, but I do enjoy playing the multiplayer with my friends quite regularly (in private chat of course for obvious reasons).

I fail to see why so many basement-dwellers feel the need to just talk shit all of sudden or, being more polite, why they "hope this era is over".

That's like, if I didn't like eating a certain food, but a lot of other people did, and suddenly that food was going to go away, and I said "thank god we won't have it anymore!" What do I care if something I never interacted with existed or not? It would be an utterly stupid thing to say.

Yes, because their Community Manager stepped down. Obviously the content and overall of the games will change drastically...

Well there was no point in him joining Respawn until they had something to talk about.

Respawn already have a creative strategist.

I can't be the only one who read "he may be headed next" as "he may be beheaded next".

Posted by AxleBro

maybe he wanted to actually make a game again.... instead of just pretending to for money.

maybe his inner artist got tired of putting pretty filters over a single great painting....

maybe they just fired him, i don't know.

Posted by Jetfire77

The community face of Activision steps down with a perfunctory statement? Can't wait to see this one play out. Something is amiss.

Wonder where he's gonna respawn.

I feel entirely okay that I had to google "hover hands" to get the joke. Could that photo be any smaller? lol Probably for the best though. Anyway, good luck to him. Always sounds like a gentleman and an awesome dad.

I love how any news stories to anything even remotely related to Call of Duty bring up the same kind of reaction.

All he's ever been to me is the guy who told me that MW:2 wouldn't have dedicated servers.

Listening to that podcast was painful.

Is Creative Strategist (Community Manager) sort of like how Subway call their employees Sandwich Artists? fourzerotwo always struck me as either incredibly ignorant of the PC platform or he was being told what to say by Activision.

The difference is that Sandwich Artists probably have more self-respect.

Four slices of roast beef, ham, turkey, slami, and provolone/swiss/some semblance of cheddar to a footlong sub. Your choice of veggies. That's art.

I'll never forgive him for saying MW2 on PC will be just like Call of Duty has always been and then, a few weeks before release, spilling the details that they gutted it and you may as well buy the console version so you can trade it in. I don't know how he lasted this long lying to customers and twisting statements to make it sound like Activision cares.

Even before that though, he always struck me as someone who dodged any real questions and he never seemed to have any knowledge of what was going on other than what he was prepped to say for interviews. Hopefully someone more honest and straightforward takes his place (although I doubt it with how Activision is managing IW).

So it looks like he's off to Vegas then with his ladies.

To my understanding Robert Bowling was a one-trick pony. Now, he is not anymore. Good for him?

@kpaadet

Creative Strategist?, give me a break, its fancy talk for community manager. So nobody should really care about him leaving.

Exactly. This move is completely inconsequential, its not like he was a developer or a designer or anything like that. May he fade away into obscurity in silence.

A good community manager who can create a solid rapport with people is important to gamers, "journalists", and developers/marketing, but as you point out, they are inconsequential to the game itself.

I wouldn't entirely expect him to show up at Respawn, they already has a community manager http://www.giantbomb.com/abbie-heppe/72-99837/. Mind you, I don't even know what 'creative strategist' means in the context of CoD. I really doubt he had any creative control over the game.

Hahm I've had this person on my twitter for a while as "person who works in gaming" had no idea it was a girl. The more you know!

It's basically a generic catch-all for "I talk on twitter and facebook and put out updates in the forums and sometimes give interviews". I don't know about Bowling, but most of these type of titles mean "nothing to do with the actual game and everything to do with interactive marketing and promotion of it". Hence, why these are often positions held by GAME JOURNALISTS.

Posted by Fastidiocy

The increasingly fancy titles for an identical job always made me smile, and all the train wrecks along the way were certainly interesting, but he always seemed like a nice enough guy who tried to make the most of a shitty job. Sometimes it must have been impossible to avoid fucking it up.

But despite an impressive résumé which includes leading Infinity Ward, creating Call of Duty, and writing lyrics for Chris Remo, I'd be shocked to see him at Respawn.

Posted by Longevitous

Never really understood why the GB community hates everything Call of Duty related, and this barely qualifies as that. He's a community manager, much like the gentleman who wrote this post was once for Harmonix. Would you say that Alex wasn't important in the promotion and PR of Rockband? Bowling became the face of CoD and the voice for the fans and there are a lot of CoD fans. Plus how can you not be a fan of Bowling after " super-douche?"

Never been a huge fan of Robert if I'm honest.

Posted by NDN_Shadow

When did we care so much about PR people? He was really just community manager, not "lead developer" or "developer" by any means.

Posted by scottygrayskull

Look at Bowling in that picture! Hover-handing those ladies like a bawse!!!
