Hey guys, they just announced a new Call of Duty is in the works, set for release in 2012! Oh boy!

Keep milking the cash cow eh?

Well, it generates a lot of money and it's been like that for years. Most of us have already expected there to be one next year.

I agree that they should be doing it every 2 years or so to actually have a lot of changes but it wont happen like that.

EA SPORTS NHL SERIES SAYS HELLOOOO

Should they just make it NHL 11, NHL 13, NHL 15 with Roster Updates every now and then?

Absolutely. For the sake of gamers, EA should change their system. However, they do not care about their consumers, they care about their consumers' money. Activision is no different and so they will continue to be a crap-making machine until we, as consumers, decide that we are tired of them feeding us crap.

With our help, EA and Activision are ruining video games.

COD alternates between Activision and Treyarch each year to produce their games which is why you have Modern Warfare and then Black Ops within a year. Activision had 2 years to develop this game and all they came up with was a patch and some new maps.

People who play NHL would flip out even more if all they got was a roster update and a patch for NHL 13 without any new features. If you see the NHL boards every year when the game comes out, there are plenty of people saying its just NHL 11 with a roster update and glitches are still there. When in fact they add a few new features every year and fix the game engine. Keep in mind that they have less than a year to develop their game.


I know that, that's the reason they re use there assets more then other games, short development time.

But that's the thing, they come out year after year expecting people to buy it thinking that they would completely revamp the design and style of the game when most of it is really just copy and paste.

They really should start doing 2 years between games, but then they wouldn't generate all that income they get from their fans...


Copy and paste, unfortunately it sells.

I am wondering what someone knows about the dollar bills flying out of people when I shoot them. Where is the blood and can I turn it on? I am sure I picked the option to keep it dirty but now I can't seem to double check it.

I dont think 2 years is that short of a development time. I'm sure they could think of some new maps in that time. They release new map packs all the time. Like I said, sports games have an even shorter development time. At least the COD franchise is smart to alternate between 2 developers so they can release one every year and milk the franchise as much as they can. Unfortunately this causes the game to become stale and there comes a point where they wont improve much and the game becomes disappointing.


I think Battlefield 3 had 3 years to develop and had 1.5 years between Bad Company 2 and BF3.

Like releasing the last map pack for black ops a month or so before the release of mw3? I skipped it. There was no way I'd get my 14$ out of it in time.

I was half-expecting the copy/paste, seeing how 1/3 of the staff that worked on MW2 left the company, many of which are lead designers and programmers and some of which were part of the team that made Medal of Honor popular and started the CoD franchise. The incident left a big question mark in my mind on how IW is going to pull this off. Well, after paying the price of $60, I have my answer. Now that EA has both DICE and the guys that left IW, things are going to become more interesting between EA and Activision.

By the way, this is a prime example of spotty P2P connection:



Did I mention that the maps are cramping clusterfxxx?

A lot of the maps are so similar to old ones. That one with the helicopter crashed in the middle especially.

The nature of the sports genre doesn't give you much creative freedom per se, so think about how creative you can be in designing a computer game of chess and you'll get the point. With that said, it is getting harder to innovate in mainstream gaming in general. It's too risky to try something new when the production cost skyrockets exponentially.

But for frack's sakes, I just took two shots in the leg from an assault rifle and died. :picard:


Well, MW3 is supposed to be an upgrade over MW2. It is essentially the same game, look at Uncharted 1, 2, 3.. Good job, they changed the story line and the graphics were slightly improved. Halo? Basically all the same, except revamped the screen in reach and some other stuff.

All First-Person shooter games will be the same, especially if they have the same name

I purchase a video game to waste time, to have fun with it. Does it look like i care if some of the maps are the same? Not really...

I've enjoyed playing this game with friends so far, it's been a blast. Really brings back memories of playing MW2 and CoD4, and im sure i'll remember playing MW3 just as well as i do playing MW2 and CoD4.

If you don't like it, don't buy it, simple as that.

Well, map packs are usually $15 and come with 4 maps or so. So....MW3 has 16 maps....which adds up to $60. Then add in the new campaign, new guns and game modes...and I do find it worth it for $60+.

BF vs COD fanboys are just as annoying as PS3 vs 360.

No one will dissuaded, so its pointless.

I have played both BF3 and MW3 and I prefer the gameplay in COD, as do millions of other people.

BF3 is for people who think they are too sophisticated for COD, but not sophisticated enough for Deus Ex / Hitman / Etc.

Actually a ?,

I just killed makarov in the hotel, so I thought I finished the campaign mode.

But in the main menu, under campaign, it says I'm only 50% complete.

Am I missing something?!?
