    Are they ****ing kidding me? What every 6 months a new COD comes out?

    So its essentially new skins, new 3 hour Campaign, a couple of cosmetic changes to the gameplay and that warrants a 60$ price tag?


    Its the Madden of the FPS Genre.

    Yea, a new one comes out every November. Hopefully this one will be better then MW2 cause MW2 sucked. Well COD:WAW sucked also. So i cant be too optimistic about this one being any better.

    As long as they bring back Nazi Zombies cause that was the other thing i played in COD:WAW.

    What was wrong with MW2? They finally acknowledged the tenuous realism of the series and ran with it. The result was a very fun game, at least in single player mode. Can't say much about the multiplayer, because pretty much every online game not named Team Fortress 2 sucks.

    As for Black Ops, it looks like it takes place over multiple eras, and it might have a couple of unique elements. Honestly, I'm somewhat excited for it. The Medal of Honor reboot looks better, but I'll probably play both. Offline, that is.

    I loved MW2 as a single player experience. Like being in an action movie. Beat it on 360 and PS3... Only game to date I've ever done that with.

    Definitely. People complain that the single player was over the top compared to CoD4, but I don't see it. CoD has always been over the top. That was the point: it's Hollywood warfare.

    To clear some things up, when i was referring to MW2 sucking, i was referring to the multi-player part. The single player story was awesome. I have beat the single player story mode like 5 times. That part is fun.

    How is it the Madden of FPS if a new one comes out every 6 months? Madden comes out yearly. :tongue2:

    I think it'd be more accurate to say the Need for Speed of FPS's but even then it's probably a bit of a stretch.

    Having two developers (Infinity Ward and Treyarch) certainly makes it easier for games to come out quicker by the way.

    Pete you always get Technical. I just meant they hardly change anything and slap a 60$ price tag. Kinda like EA and Madden. I'm in the minority here but I hate games that become Obsolete after a year.

    TF2 FTW!

    Dont get raped :tongue2:

    How is TF2 not obsolete at this point? there's all of 2 variants of gameplay, and a few maps. OH, I get it... It's not obsolete because they haven't made TF3. That's not fair to judge a game's merit based on the developer's ability to punch out a sequel.

    TF2 isn't obsolete for the same reasons Starcraft persisted for so long: active updates. TF2 has had 119 updates since its original release, a lot of those adding new maps and game modes. I think the game's install size has doubled over its life due to said new content.

    That game has a lot of life left in it. Far more than Left 4 Dead or Call of Whatever, IMO.

    i need to point out that there are now 3 studios working on call of duty. Infinity Ward (whats left of it, anyway), Treyarch, and now sledgehammer games. There will, eventually, be 2 call of duty games in one year.

    Talking about FPS not MMORPG's

    I don't know its just irritating. Even if its 3 studios pumping out the damn series how about making a game that will blow everything in its Genre away instead of just recycling over and over. Just seems average.

    from wikipedia:

    By the way, that 10M number puts MW2 as the 3rd best selling game of all time in North America.

    So I guess I'd say the most recent COD blew other titles of the genre away.

    Good for them? Just because a game makes money doesn't mean its the greatest game ever. At least to me it doesn't.

    I've been playing TF2 ever since the beta back in 2007. Stopped playing last year, sort of getting back into it lately.

    And now, back on topic! Have a real trailer.

    Vietnam confirmed? Growing up watching Tour Of Duty... I've longed for a Vietnam video game experience done properly! I hope they do it right with random ambushes and stuff like that.

    Normally I only care about online play with shooters, but Call Of Duty usually has a great single player campaign.

    Eh **** it... I'm buying it. I liked the official trailer and as HD said, the campaign should be good. Plus I'm not buying that halo reach bull**** either, so I'll need something.

    Although the developers are no Infinity Ward, they're still not terrible and hopefully they'll fix the few mistakes (Commando, Last Stand, and Final Stand) that plague MW2.

    Almost a prestige 7. I should be a 10 by the end of the summer.

    I had zero doubts about you getting this game. I figure by the time it comes out you might be alittle tired of MW2.

    I definetly did not buy the game for its "name". Its also the BEST shooter game out. The different game types let you change several things up so thats nice. Buckeye have you ever played this game? Online multiplayer?

    Ive been spoiled when it comes to FPS games. After playing Red Orchestra the UT2K4 mod everything paled in comparison. Finally a game that took skill to be good. Everything I played since then I couldn't get into. Gears was fine for awhile in terms of shooter but glitchers ruined it.

    What does COD have that other shooters don't? What makes it stand out?

    my question is what make Red Orchestra stand out? UT is as bland as shooters come. RO is just a skin that tones it down a tad. It was LOADED to the teeth with glitchers bots and cheaters (as with all UT mods and games). I'd take a COD4 or MW2 any day of the week over RO lol
