Call of Duty WW2's Gun Game is awesome, but it has a serious AFK problem

jtodroc

3 months ago

@pelican_ the article mentions that Sledgehammer, for some unknown reason, only puts Gun Game in to WW2 very occasionally.

The point of it isn't that a brand new mode has been added to the game. Is just stating that a higher than normal amount of players are going AFK in the mode.

I don't understand why they can't leave the mode in permanently. They do the same with the game mode Infected.

Call of Duty: WW2's first DLC pack is just what the game needs - and that's why it should be free

jtodroc

4 months ago

"It's important to point out that Activision is not the only publisher stubbornly sticking with the sale of premium DLC maps. EA did it with Battlefield 1 - although given its stance with Titanfall 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront 2, I wonder if Battlefield has seen the last of the season pass. Activision's own Destiny games lock new competitive multiplayer maps behind costly expansions, too. This is not a Call of Duty problem. This is a video game industry problem."

Can you see the common link here? Activision. Seems like more of an Activision problem than an industry wide problem.

Battlefield 1 looks like it'll be the last Battlefield game with a season pass. I'd much rather free maps / weapons supported by microtransactions for cosmetic stuff that has no impact on gameplay, than new maps that you have to pay for.

You'd hope EA have learned from the Battlefront 2 debacle and won't bring back random loot boxes that are tied in to progression.

Rust is leaving Early Access next month after four years in development

jtodroc

4 months ago

So it's not finished but it won't be early access anymore...I'm slightly confused.

Would it not be more sensible to leave it in early access until it's finished?

Or would this mean they can't increase the price?

Am I just being cynical?

Big Call of Duty: WW2 video leak reveals new game modes and weapons

jtodroc

6 months ago

I don't think anyone's wondering about how the weapons will be unlocked.

It's an Activision game so they'll obviously be unlocked through loot boxes. I think it's already been leaked that one type of loot box coming is a "weapon create" or something similar.

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

jtodroc

1 year ago

I'll probably come across add a Sony fanboy here, but strange how positive this article is about the Xbox brand's year ahead when there are barely a handful of Xbox exclusive games on the horizon.

Sony seem to have so many exclusives on the way, a lot of which look very promising, yet the Sony article seemed fairly downbeat.

A console is only as good as the games you can play on it. The Scorpio may be "the most powerful console ever", but that makes no difference if there aren't any exciting games lined up to play on it.

Edit: obviously both articles written by different people so probably not that surprising that the tone in both is so different.

Tritton Katana HD wireless headset review

I bought Astro A40s a few years ago with the Astro Mixamp. They were very good for positional tracking for the likes of hearing footsteps etc. in shooters.

I now use the Mixamp with a Sennheiser Game One headset (the successor to the old PC360 headset). The Game Ones are definitely better than the Astro headset.

Just to add, I'm on a PS4 abs the A40s are the 2011 model. They've been updated since.

Another "lapsed" player here. I finished the story missions and got the platinum trophy but can't see me going back.

The dark zone last time I played was basically full of groups of people with high end gear camping at the entrances waiting for players to enter so they can just repeatedly kill them.

I can't see any reason to play again. I haven't even bothered with the incursion after hearing how broken it is.

Upgraded my PS4 to a 2TB hard drive for the same price that Microsoft are charging for the 320gb hard drive.

Edit: same price as 500gb drive - £80 - on amazon (Seagate STDR2000200 2TB Backup Plus USB 3.0 External Hard Drive - Black).

The price may be different now though.
