Sources: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 doesn't have a single-player campaign

chessboxer

1 day ago

If this is true, I ain't buying it. Ever. I haven't bought the last COD game yet but it is on "the list". I thoroughly enjoyed Infinite Warfare (mars aeternum), it was much better than Black Ops 3 which (for me) over did it with the whole repeating "Imagine yourself in a frozen forest" speach towards the end, but it was still a good game.

It's the same Kratos, just a bit older and now travelling with his son having left Greece behind (he's killed about 37 family members, his presence is probably no longer welcomed).

I wonder if Atreus knows about Calliope...

Awesome. This is the best COD campaign. I have no interest in MP so this is great for me, although I'm assuming the Spec-Ops missions will also be missing which is a downer. I thought they were far more interesting than Zombies. Even COD: Ghosts' Alien co-op stuff was better than Zombies.

The fact is that the One has been on sale for 3.5 years in Japan and lifetime sales are not even half of the PS4s opening weekend figure.

Why would (in this case) Japanese devs place such a heavy emphasis on a system with little to no presence in the market place?

If you're wondering about lacklustre Xbox support in Japanese games, maybe you should take a look at the Japanese sales figures. When "the most powerful console ever" can only shift 6 units in a week (no stock shortages) there isn't much hope of attracting better developer support.

Nope. I'm glad they stick with Kratos. We get to see how he has changed since the end of GOW3 and what becoming a father again has done to him. I want to know how he gets his weapon. Was it gifted to him by dwarves or is it a "keep what you kill" situation.

This is day one for me.

You forgot about TAX.

The US price doesn't include sales tax and the UKs VAT is much higher than the US at 20%.

Tax also varies by ZIP code in most US states although I don't think anywhere pays more than 10%. Some states such as Montana pay 0%.

Jelly Deals: Razer discounting its gaming hardware this weekend

chessboxer

I've been through 2 MX518s in the past when I used to play a lot of Counter Strike (Condition Zero and Source) and Unreal Tournament (99-2k4). Each one lasted about 3 years before failing.

For years however in between the MX518s and a Razer Copperhead I've been using a Terratec Mystify Razer Boomslang 2100, it's extremely comfortable but it's a ball mouse. In 2007 Razer re-released it with infrared and unforturnately I didn't buy one. I kick myself everytime I think about it.

Fortnite bans "thousands" of Battle Royale cheaters

chessboxer

@AgentDaleCooper
When certain people are firing their weapons, they move up and down (stand and partial crouch) which makes their hitbox harder to hit. Also some of the burst fire weapons (M4/M16) do not follow the standard 3 round burst when fired and are instead full auto. You can hear it when the gun is fired.

There are many cheaters in console games now it's so annoying. I see tons of them in BF4 on PS4 running their anti-recoil, aim-assist scripts and jitter mods, I wish EA/Sony could hardware ban them from the multiplayer servers.

They need to patch the loss of keys for this Raid. Losing keys at reset I can understand but I shouldn't be losing keys during the week.

More than 19 million people have played Battlefield 1

chessboxer

11 months ago

I haven't played BF1 (or any BF) in over a month due to my time being consumed by FFXV and Horizon Zero Dawn, but earlier in the year I was going back to both BF4 and BFH (yes I like Hardline), I tend to prefer modem weapons but BF1 has had some awesome moments. Might try and squeeze in a couple of hours over the weekend.

I must admit though that looking back at the BF franchise on console going back to Bad Company in 2008 on PS3, BF3 has been my favourite for multiplayer.

It may not fit in with The Great War but I wouldn't mind seeing older maps like Arica Harbor, Seine Crossing, Harvest Day, Oasis or Grand Bazaar as free BF1 DLC after all the premium content is done.

Why the pros think Black Ops 2 is still the best Call of Duty

chessboxer

1 year ago

@HE1NZ

I only play the campaigns when it comes to COD but BLOPS2 was very good.

BLOPS3 however has the worst campaign. It started off well but then the player (voiced by Ben Browder) kept on talking and wouldn't shut up, especially when you were in the "Frozen Forest"... and for all the crap gamers have given Infinity Ward since the BF1 reveal, Infinite Warfare had a great campaign.

The best campaign belongs to Modern Warfare 2. As far as COD campaigns go, that game is amazing.

Adding to what @bad09 said, most 4K Blu-ray movies currently out and due out this year aren't actually 4K unless the film is from a Sony studio although this is changing slowly.

All of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to date have been mastered with a 2K digital intermediate. The same goes for recent films like John Wick: Chapter 2 and La La Land.

Rogue One, Deadpool, Logan and pretty much every Sony studio film from around 2011 onwards have been mastered with a 4K DI.
