Call of Duty Modern Warfare
« on: October 21, 2019, 04:13:44 AM »
Is no-one interested in this?

I was but I have a huge rod in my ass about Blizzard and Battle.net so I'm not sure if it'll make it onto my PC (yet)

Plus they proper sold out by giving Sony a special edition. I have a PS4 so you'd think I'd be ok with it, but I'm not. Why should one platform get a special edition exclusively (for any period of time).

You know someone has sat in the marketing office and said "You know how we can get more money?"   :knuppel2:

Yep, interested.  Mentioned in another thread, pre ordered a few weeks back.  Donít expect a ton but enough to entertain I guess.

I honestly donít know that much about it and finding detailed information about what to expect has been more difficult to find then it should be. All the press is the over the top cutscenes and and spec ops looking guys stacking up on doorways.

The Call of Duty games have become to gaming, what, according to Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, Marvel super hero movies are to cinema...mindless theme park distractions.

The new Call of Duty game will be the same as the last 10 Call of Duty games. They don't need to tell us what to expect, I suppose, because we already know. Its the same thing over and over and over again.

Most definitely will be the same formula, I donít have high expectations and will play it fairly casually...I wonít do anything more than the campaign and doubt I will even finish that:)

read a bunch of the reviews and each are giving it very favorable scores,  hinting at the best campaign of the series but sounds like only 6-8 hours worth.  i am sure it is still very much a call of duty game, but at least encouraging that the reviews so far arenít killing it.

my game is all pre loaded, will play tonight i hope....

Where did you buy it from?

Also, what was the bollox about registering the game through Battle.Net?

i bought it at greenman gaming when they had a special few weeks back.  you do have to use the battle net client and have a user account, all easy stuff.  if you do buy through greenman, you need to link to your battle net account.

Yes. All reviews look very positive so far. I took the plunge. Still downloading. Will play tonight.

The game is completely unplayable for me. My computer meets recommended requirements and the GPU memory is showing just over half being used and yet FPS is around 15. This isn't even just in game. It happens at the Infinity Ward and Activision logo launches. Cut scenes in game were unwatchable.

I've been reading about and people mentioned it right from BETA with more powerful systems than me but others not having the issue...so it'll likely be machine specific.

My experience of things like this has often pointed towards a particular setting in the graphics options...

On the plus side, it looked freaking gorgeous.

I'm going on holiday today for a week - so I'll see what's occurred in a week. Hopefully it'll get sorted.

Enjoy those who can.

no issues for me so far, besides some very minor stutter in some cut scenes.  i have played a number of missions so far and having fun.  some very interesting and intense missions, but i wonít spoil it for anyone.  certainly wonít be my top game this year, kind of feeling a little too led through things but thatís typical in this series.  i guess the good thing it is a shorter campaign so iíll likely complete it at some point:)

Yeah...overall, Iím pretty impressed with the campaign experience so far. Itís still call of duty, but I think itís the the best CoD experience in quite some time. Looks great and the combat feels good. The campaign missions are pretty engrossing so far and not too far over the top.

Iím having the occasional stutter in cutscenes but gameplay is smooth as silk.

JH I agree with what you wrote.  To add another thought:
I like how they handled the spree shooting segment of level 2.  It felt realistic and shocking -- benefited by taking inspiration from real life events like the Vegas shooting and the Paris shooting -- but I really like that they put you in the shoes of somebody responding to the massacre and stopping the bastards carrying out the shooting.  Compared to "No Russian" from MW2, which felt like it was written by an edgy 14 year old since you're forced to either commit a massacre of civilians or willingly go along with it.  I think the approach MW2019 took was quite refreshing, and it was a nice feeling running into action and preventing more civilians from getting gunned down.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.
