How Call of Duty: WW2 trivialises history

ThePissartist

The worst Call of Duty last generation is better than the best COD this generation. It's very frustrating how they manage to persist is making the series worse. It takes genuine skill to make them this bad.

Am I the only one that think this is likely due to Activision not making expected revenue from Infinite Warfare?

Hopefully their next game isn't a boost jumping shitstorm.

Microsoft's 2017: momentum at last, and a golden opportunity

ThePissartist

1 year ago

To be perfectly honest, in order for Microsoft to win me over with the new Xbox they'll have to shed any Xbox One front end and kind of start afresh.

I'm committed to not buying an Xbox One and from what I've seen of it, I have absolutely no regrets at all.

I realise this won't be a popular comment, but I'm one for sticking to my word.

An Xbox One 2 won't work for me at all.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered now has supply drops

ThePissartist

1 year ago

I'm not buying Infinite Warfare, so if Activision want my money they have to bring this out as a standalone. I also hope they realise that Advanced Warfare, Black Ops 3, and Infinite Warfare are not the way for the series to go. Boosting replacing tactics is not good. Nor is their current level design. I actually like to be able to hunt a camper, the current designs don't allow for it. They also seem to make every weapon type except SMGs redundant. The games are far too fast now. It's really not fun anymore, even if it was a temporary novelty.

Why I think big console game sales are down

ThePissartist

Audiences have grown up, now how about some actual grown up games? I'm not referring to games rated 18, more like games aimed at adults.

I mean, really, I stopped being interested in robots when I was 11.

New hardware too may have an effect. I guess if a large percentage of PS4 owners bought a PSVR then sales of traditional AAA titles will have lost sales to VR games (or just the headset itself).


If I speak from personal experience, I think that there's nothing out there that's exciting me. I'm playing games less and less with every year that passes. That's probably an age thing for me though, I'm not far off 38, so it's probably a given that my interests decline in a medium that's predominantly aimed at teenagers.


I know it's been said before a hundred times, but space based, or booster, wall running COD doesn't appeal to me at all I'd go as far as to say that I hate it. I've always been a big COD guy too, but this is the first one I haven't bought since COD2. Give me a budget Modern Warfare and I'll buy it though. I just don't want to be forced into getting something I don't want.

I've never had a problem with the sentinels, even when I've had three stars while mining Albumin Pearls (is that what they're called?). They've usually lost interest by the time I've come out of the cave, either that or I do the run/melee/rocket away from them. I've never seen anything other than the little flying sentinels, even on planets when they're "aggressive".

I don't think there's any point in Neo being anything other than what's rumoured, as it'll be 3x the relative power of the nearest competition.

If console releases were a game of chess, I'd imagine that Sony has planned exactly this very outcome of Microsoft's reactionary Xbox One S / Scorpio move and is about to take both pieces over their next two moves.

PS4 > Xbox One
PS4 S (Neo) > Xbox One S
PS5 > Xbox Scorpio

With only the PS5 releasing after Scorpio. They just need to time the announcement well and I think they've likely got a blinder.
5 5

ThePissartist

I think it's entirely possible that Sony market their machine in much the same way that Microsoft has the Xbox One S, just as an upgraded version of the current machine, or consider it as "slim". A PS4 S if you like.

Now if they market it as competition to the Xbox One S then I think they could be onto a winner, as it'd only be coming a few months after the Xbox.

Then a month or so before the Scorpio is released to the public, they should announce the PS5 with true "next-gen" specs. Even if it's for a year later. Then they would have completely taken the wind out of Microsoft and put them in a position of being second in power three times in a row and prevent them from releasing another box since two will have already been released in about a year.
