Mike Myers?

Kinda what I was thinking as well. Cool. Very cool even. But seriously... what the actual fuck???

What?

Edited by Hailinel

Apparently, it wasn't enough to poop out a substandard COD game. The DLC has to be eyeroll-inducing, as well.

A running Michael Myers with a axe? Have they never seen a Halloween movie?

My first thought as well. Plus the foggy woods environment looks like it would suit Jason Vorhees more than Michael Myers. Myers' habitat is supposed to be the suburbs and college buildings ect.

Yes, it do look like more like Jason Vorhees environments and Myers should have an knife and not an axe.

I just lost all interest in Call of Duty since "Ghosts" came out. The game is horrid. I max prestiged BLOPs 2 and returned Ghosts. Thats how fast i went from CoD super fan to a Battlefield player.

Is it me or do the developer guys in the ad, look like even they dont give a cracklin' crap about the game anymore? Its either apathy or sad hope that someone cares about Michael friggin' Myers being in a random map of Call of Duty.

Im so disappointed in what they did to the series.

Treyarch is a immeasurably better game maker, so if the franchise can be saved, they will find a way.

I don't play CoD, but I was actually kind of into that fog map until they went cross-promotion with it.

My first thought was how dumb, but the more I am thinking of running around a map that is meant for run and gun and I am the bad guy with an axe just chopping people it appeals to me. I will hold out for the Jason DLC, because the "Ch-Ch-Ch Ha-ha-ha" would be just great to play.

It would also be nice if there was a mode where the military was sent in to hunt down one of the horror greats.

Fart noise.

I almost wish they hadn't announced the whole Michael Myers thing. I think having fans stumble upon it would've been an awesome move for them.

I don't know anyone who plays this really, so I guess I still won't be playing Extinction mode. :)

First thing, I wish ol' Mike had a knife as his primary and his melee was just picking you up off the ground by the throat. I kind of like the idea of a FPS slasher mashup, but not enough to go back to Ghost. Just not my cup of tea.

My 13 year old brother-in-law is a huge fan of Ghosts, so he will like this.

Maps look alright. As someone who has been mostly disappointed with the maps since mw2 an update of scrapyard is interesting and somewhat exciting. The michael myers thing is bizarre and seems really misinformed, but also looks to be just a reskin of the maniac killstreak. Normally i'd be all over the season pass but after getting burned on MW3 i'll wait and see.

@kkjs: Really? In my experience playing the game it does not matter what the map size is, I will always either spawn near or have an enemy spawn near me. Also, compared to the good games in the series the maps are not very big.

The likes of Chasm, Stonehaven and Siege are among the largest maps in any CoD game. I've had plenty of rounds where I've been running round for ages looking for someone on Siege in particular!

Making the maps much bigger would be regrettable given the "communities" penchant for hiding in corners and avoiding conflict.

Really?? Why not throw in Jason Voorhees for the campers?

Edited by Adaptor

This looks like a really solid pack. Would definitely buy this if I had a next-gen console to play Ghosts on.

Edited by ThatOneDudeNick

lol @ "It's actually TWO new weapons" wooooah now! I've been trying to enjoy Ghosts on PS4. I have nothing against CoD games, but I've been playing it more because PS4 is lacking good shooters (Yeah BF4 is better. I play it on PC though). I'll probably buy this on impulse while looking for something to play on a late drunken night, but this preview didn't excite me at all.

I'm assuming they couldn't get Jason. Because, that 'Fog' map looks like Jason's hunting grounds. And as others here have mentioned, I can't recall Michael Myers ever using an axe. I'm sure he has, at some point. Right? I mean, he's killed enough people that he had to use one at some point. But, his weapon of choice isn't an axe.

But, whatever.

Is it just me or do these DLC maps look more unbalanced than the stock maps?

also, extinction still feels very ehhh....

In addition to those points, I'm having trouble with him out in the middle of nowhere. That's Jason Vorhees country; Michael Myers is "smalltown Americana," not "remote cabins."

Yeah, I was almost immediately a little offended by how out-of-place this use of Myers was. Sure, Halloween's had a massive fall from grace since 1978, but goddamn if that first film wasn't a masterpiece.

so when is patching the awful pc port?

never?

neat

Posted by flannelbeard

i've played every call of duty game and have always enjoyed them, but, fuck activision and M$ for continuing this on M$ first bullshit and for jumping the shark with the cameo nonsense of washed charters no one cares about.

you know what, i stopped even bothering to play ghosts anymore. been enjoying Killzone: Shadow Fall far more. It's not a laggy pile of shit and its not full of dude-bro duche bags and 13 year olds screaming.

...end rant.

Hahaha, "Classic CoD Gameplay." As opposed to?

Can you imagine having these "hype" videos back when Half-Life, TFC, CS, was a thing? Every new Official map(s) getting a trailer basically making up BS about why it's so "extreme"

Is CoD moddable by any chance? I would love to see what the community could come up with.

Haha nice to see some horror movie talk here.

Nothing says Halloween quite like post-Christmas.

Edited by SJSchmidt93

Me and my buddies used to a play a game in MW2 where one player could only melee (w/ Commando) and everyone else couldn't attack and we called it "Michael Meyers". I don't know if that was a widespread thing or not, though.

Edited by JimiPeppr

"Michael Myers" is a custom gametype people used to play since CoD4, in which one person is designated as Michael Myers, and has to try to stab everyone with the knife while everyone else attempts to hide and avoid him/her.

Does this Michael Myers inclusion have anything to do with that custom gametype? No idea. I can't think of any better reason for him to be included though.

Yeah being invited to a "Michael Myers lobby" has been a thing for a while, I'd say that this dlc is definitely a nod to the "community."

My thought exactly!

Edited by TheTerribleFamiliar

I was burned out on CoD after CoD4. Only spent a week with MW2 before I gave it up. I haven't played a CoD game since this Christmas when I played Black Ops 2. I liked it a lot, but I think taking a number of years off away from the franchise made it more fun for me. I picked up Ghosts for the Wii U and it's certainly one of the better experiences on the Wii U for players in the same room.

I understand the hate and fatigue after so many releases, but not having stuck with the series, I'm having a blast. Ghosts has a lot to offer, it's just too bad Activision has milked the cow to near death.
