I was fucking flabbergasted that they made a third black ops game. Haven't we been subjected enough to this same fucking game for the past decade with a new reskin every year? What in the hell will they do next ? What fucking setting or theme will the next cod be?
I FUCKING LOVE THIS POST OP AND AGREE WITH YOU SO DAMN MUCH RIGHT NOW...
CoD died after MW2.
This futuristic, run-n-gun re-skin garbage is pathetic.
Stay strong brother, we will always have the true great shooter of this generation, Battlefield 4.
NEVER GIVE IN OP!
NEVER GIVE UP THE FIGHT BROTHER!
WE ARE WITH YOU!!
OP here. I here ya. The fps genre I feel has stagnated at this point and will need to go through a very awkward transition in the next few years. Hopefully Activision goes on to milk something else besides cod. Better yet , hopefully cod dies.
Are you stupid or something? Each release is telegraphed like a year in advance.
Are you having trouble counting?
I honestly love COD, though I understand why many don't because it is honestly a rehash of a successful formula year after year.
But seriously, what more can they do? The last 2 games have been set at least 30-40 years in the future and have dramatically changed the focus of the campaign. Yes the MP doesn't change much but Activision is too scared to modify their cash cow. That's obvious. But there has been dramatic innovation in the campaign and this one is going to be more different than ever.
If you like COD single-player, get excited. If you don't, ignore it and stop crying about how other people like what you don't.
How did you not see Blops 3 coming a mile away.
I am only surprised that it didn't happen years ago already.
We had the Modern Warfare trilogy and Blacks Ops was obviously going to be a trilogy as well.
Advanced Warfare is better mechanically, but has the shitty matchmaking setup with bad network settings optimized for listen servers.
Black Ops 3 is worse mechanically, but is promising mod tools and a server browser. I'm not holding my breath though; I'd only consider getting the game if and only if the mod tools actually release and they aren't gimped. Fuck em.
if they are smart they won't have that jumping around shit. It killed AW and its going to keep BLOPS 3 from having lasting appeal. People will go back to blops 2 by next july at the latest
i haven't played a cod since cod4, and then i played the blops3 beta like a month ago.
loved it, and pre-ordered it a couple weeks back
playing through blops 1 and 2 campaigns right now, holy fuck blops 1 was amazing.
played some blops 2 mp as well, blops 3 is better though
AW was the first Call of Duty with really good movement, and Black Ops 3 ruined it.
This is trolling right? Just fags ironically imitating idiot normies?
Modern Warfare was the worst rut COD ever got itself into. The movement into sci-fi territory is amazing and is actually making me more interested in the setting again. Treyarch's games are always the best ones too.
Honestly, WW2, Cold War and Sci-Fi COD's are usually always good.
The modern warfare setting has fucking one good game which is COD4, rest are garbage.
>not worried about getting shit for all the anime shit all over my steam profile
>worried about everyone asking me why the fuck I'm playing a CoD game
Is there a way to turn off notifications for some games?
Is that what the games turned into? Fucking autistic bunny hopping quake style shit? Thats depressing. I remember having so much fun on WaW. It was fast paced but not like that.
I would get the new cod ,but I went with the ps4 instead of the xbox one this generation. The ps4 controller just sucks for FPS, the xbox controller has always been the superior controller for console shooters. I just can't play competitively online using the ps4 controller unless it's a fighting game.
After hearing about the Blops III modding, I was watching some videos of AW after not paying attention to it at all. The movement system looks really cool, but after reading some reviews it looks like the matchmaking is complete shit and no one can find a game anymore.. kinda sad. A lot of it is because DLC segments the community.
CoD Ghosts had some space battles
>Get a full-time management position.
>More money than I've ever had before just piling up and piling up.
Man this shit is dangerous. I already bought the fucking stupid bullshit Digital Deluxe Edition purely because what else will I spend my money on?
Also Niggawatt is best class.
Why do you hate fun? That's just what you get when you jump, then jump again, then figure out that going slightly diagonally makes you go faster, and oh it also combines with your jump jets holy shit I'm fucking Iron Man.
I played Cod4 all the way to BlackOPs competitively on the 360. They did take skill to play and came down to team work, being tactical, and out playing the opponent. After Blops thought it started relying too heavy on killstreaks and the random factor was too high, giving casual players more of an even playing field so I stopped playing competitively. Also nothing wrong playing console games competitively, you can play any game competitively as long as there is a community to back it up. Most of the people who played those cods back in the day weren't 9 year olds, especially people who teamed up and took it serious.
But can you weaponize that movement in AW? I feel like it would slow you down too much when you go for a kill.
Huh. Haven't played AW in a while. I wonder if many are trying this.
Too arena shooter for me now. I want Call of Duty to go back to it's more tactical roots. On the other side of the spectrum, games like Rainbow six is too slow pace and really restrictive in movement. Cod4,WaW, BlackOps, all had perfect pacing with a mix between both.
>quasi-quake movement and lightning gun
what a world we live in, activision is now making better quake games than id.
Fucking Call of Duty is already a better arena shooter than the new Doom, lol.
>Black Ops 2 was the best CoD
Oh no way in hell I'm preordering. I haven't done that in a long time and I don't plan on doing it now.
I'm actually kind of excited for mod potential now.
Hello Darkness my old friend...
>tfw nobody has found out the secret to the mw2 museum level yet
Does the drift car have a lightning gun?
>>tfw nobody has found out the secret to the mw2 museum level yet
You mean pressing the button and having to fight off all of the dudes like something out of Night at the Museum? I actually forgot about that. Good times.
Best multiplayer cod: MW2
Best zombies: Blops 1
Spirit award for doing something different and actually feeling like a new game: AW
I bought Black Ops 3, i'm going to play it, enjoy it and have fun.
There is not a single thing you can do to stop me and I hope it makes you mad :^)
omg raaaage xd
I might get it if Treyarch delivers on their promises
I won't get it, but I know my little brother will buy it.
I'll try it out when I go back home this Thanksgiving. I might just buy it on PC depending on how popular it is by christmas along with
Kino Der Toten still best Zombies map.
>tfw you know you won't survive another round so you activate the secret song
Best Multiplayer : Black Ops
Best Campaign: MW2
Best Zombies: I enjoyed the dlc asylum one the most I believe it was from WAW. I also liked the one where you can ride a Bus to different places, I believe Black Ops 2?
Spirit Award: MW2 - because they made the game super fast pace while being fair
>while being fair
if by "fair" you mean so hilariously unbalanced that you could use pretty much anything and do well
which dlcs are worth buying from any cod?
which cod has th best dlc?
Y'all niggas know that Ascension was best zombie map right?
When you dive to prone
Gonna shake you to the bone
All the zombies gonna groan
COZ OF PHD
Agreed. I feel like blops2 was the first to start getting close to a semblance of fairness, but all of the games have had some bullshit though. I feel like MW3 had the most unbalanced nonsense though; the Assassin perk did way too fucking much for a single perk and there was really no reason not to use it. What the fuck were they thinking with that one?
You can tell who they are appealing to since COD 4. Look at how the cover art changes, how it was relatively modest before and then gave way to tacticool "lmao so badass" bullshit.
AW and BOIII have absolutely nothing to do with each other except share the same franchise.
>isn't it set before blops 3?
>whats the lore reason behind the jetpacks sucking now?
AW is set in a different universe, so is Ghosts and Modern Warfare.
The Modern Warfare games are set in the same universe and Black Ops games are set in their own universe.
I did too, but for some reason I couldn't get into MW3's. I think I just thought Russia fighting the world solo was a stupid concept, like no actual, WWIII. I didn't get to fight Chinese troops invading south Korea, or storm the beaches of NK with the Japanese. I didn't get to sit with a Finn bro in a bunker through the winter, propping up bodies to scare Russian troops. The only truly cool parts to me was the beach in Germany, and then finding the GIGN in France. The team ups to take down other team ups never happened.
Ghosts had to levels in the campaign based around space battles.
I'd certainly like to see an otherworld CoD though; just really stretch this shit out to the point where it no longer comes close to resembling it's WW2 roots.
>The movement into sci-fi territory is amazing
The movement into sci-fi is fine. The movement involving jetpacking and wallrunning isn't.
Black Ops 2 is the pinnacle of "futuristic" CoD.
I'm the OP of that webm, no it isn't. It's also not really as fast as you can go. With the slide boost combined with a circle jump you can go straight to that speed pretty much whenever you want to, with any class and loadout.
>Perfected the game at MW2
>Kept changing it since
Why? It was balanced at that point, everything after just unbalanced everything until people kept using the same weapons in the late game.
>kept using the same weapons in the late game.
Pissed me off in Blops
>every rifle does same damage
So what does that mean? Best rifle is fastest firing with most manageable recoil, which was the FAMAS. Up and to the right. Slap ext mag on that bitch and you owned the map.
Blops 4 will take place in the far flung future where wars span across multiple levels of existence, and psychic shit happens and you go between the 1st-13th dimensions spraying bullets through time and space and the fabric of quantum space and gravity and stuff.
Also CoD zombies will be bigger and better than ever and you can play as all characters on all maps and you can drive the big robot in the WW1 map and you can fly a spaceship on the moon and all the zombies now do that multidimensional jump thing from the main campaign but it's okay because if you drink super juggernog you can do the same thing and there are robot alien mummy zombies from beneath the earth's surface too and they use elemental staffs to shoot energy bolts at you and the ray gun can now be used in multiplayer deathmatches.
Will this shit at least have matchmaking or a server browser for the co-op? I'm still amazed Halo 5 was hyping up the co-op aspects of the campaign yet it doesn't have split screen or any basic matchmaking.
you must really be new eh? how could you be suprised they made a new one, there are still MILLIONS of sweaty ass nerds ready to buy it, praise it, hate it, then throw it away and wait for the next game in september.
>being this new
You seem upset anon
Black ops 3 has a fuck load of worth it content
And technically next year is infinity ward, which means they will either make Ghost 2 or scrap it because everybody and their mom hated the fuck out of it
Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of the Rangers.
Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite Soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further, faster and fight harder than any other Soldier.
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some.
Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well-trained Soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.
Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.
Rangers lead the way!
>not playing single player NG+
>not playing 1930s mafia vs zombies
>not playing multiplayer which is awesome
>not legally owning it to play the custom maps that come when they release modding tools
Your loss mate
I completely agree; it also pissed off a lot of players.
I used to play AW with my old roommate after not touching CoD since MW2 and I could instantly go in and enjoy the fast paced action.
Gimmicks were few and far between, movement was graceful and more importantly; fast. I always hated how in most of the CoDs the winning strat was
>minimize angles that people can attack you from
>Use an assault rifle
>Charge into the middle of combat with your one hit kill weapon and hope like hell you get out alive
So, I would play AW with a shotgun or a more accurate hip rifle and play it like a quake clone and it was fun and I'd do well. My roommate would watch me and get angry for not playing the game right.
>joining the Rangers
So you went through one of the harshest selection course just to end up being a bunch of glorified marines and letting actual special forces teams like the Navy SEALs and the Green Berets do the actual work?
>tfw you would honestly buy a MW + MW2 all in one with all their DLC's reskinned for 2015
>tfw you would take that or going back to WWII with some 101 Airborne vs SS action in France and the Netherlands
>tfw they made a decent franchise an abortion to attract pre pubescent middle school virgins and their parents credit cards
What game franchise is /v/ mad at these days? Destiny? Fallout? Assassins Creed?
something which glorifies intelligence agencies manufacturing entire conflicts by propping up future enemy regimes (for the express purpose of eventually fighting them, not as an incredibly stupid mistake). the world is juuuuust about ready for that big bluepill.
>marines thinking they're anything close to a ranger unit
Thanks for the laugh grunt.
What you see is what you get, no hype train to be found.. only gameplay.
>any person in the army thinking they're anything but worthless grunts to be fed into the meat grinder of war while everyone else does actually important shit
even the chair force actually does more than you faggots
Somebody for the love of god, talk me out of buying the digital deluxe edition, Only reason I even want this stupid game is because of zombies, and the Der riese remake, i am literally a couple button presses away from doing this shit, Somebody help me!!!!!!!!
do it and tell /v/ your bro bought it
>yfw It Ain't Me plays
Oh, that means those army strong adverts really got to you, huh?
the very first one and extension was actually really good then they started adding regen health, infinite waves of enemies and grenade spam, it went downhill from there with the slight exceptions of modern warfare and world at war
They're letting you mod, add custom games and maps too.
We’ve still got a lot of work left to do, but here’s our current plan:
>You will be able to create Maps & Game Modes and more!
>We will include Unranked Dedicated Server Files with the tools so you can run servers with modded content anywhere you choose.
>We will provide an Unranked Server Browser so you can easily find and join servers with modded content.
>Closed Alpha target date: March 2016
I'm seriously considering pre-ordering Blops III as well (it's $35 on cdkeys.com)
I feel like a bad gamer... I always try to play a lot of different stuff, and have stayed away from modern mainstream games, but in the past week I've beaten BLops 1, started 2 and am now thinking getting 3. I don't even like the multiplayer that much aside from the party modes but I guess I'm just getting caught up in the hype.
CoD became so popular, that it is now cool to hate it for reddit/normies/kids. It's always been a decent series though, yeah it has pacing problems in the single player, but overall its a fine series.
>wow I can't believe I'm not getting jewed harder! thanks!
>$100 for a complete game
Sure it was a fine series before Modern Warfare 2.
Then they started charging their fanbase 60 dollars for a reskin and patch.
Seriously, if they waited a few years to release these games then people wouldn't hate them so much.
Halo is also experiencing a resurgence in indiecred. Shooters are on the decline and they're kind of becoming the underdogs.
I think the most hated games right now are open worlds. Arkham, Fallout, Destiny, AC
>if they waited a few years to release these games then people wouldn't hate them so much.
Black cocks 3 has been in development for close to 3 years. I'm curious to see how long they think they can have 3 dev teams cranking them out with that much dev time.
>Seriously, if they waited a few years to release these games then people wouldn't hate them so much.
Does that also mean buying whatever CoD is current every few years should be acceptable to the CoD-is-shit group?
it used to be just Infinity Ward and Treyarch, but now with Sledgehammer added to the mix each game has a 3 year development cycle, meaning that they can't just copy the other teams and make the same game every year. obviously, when Bo2 took the charge with going to the future the other games followed suit but that also means that that's gonna get stale soon and we'll have to see another war scenario take place.
