11. Re: Next Call of Duty Tidbits? Nov 15, 2012, 08:26 Beamer
 
There was an article somewhere yesterday about how publishers are afraid we'll forget about their properties so they panic anc keep putting out sequels (I actually think it's less we'll forget and more that they know games kind of move in fads and trends, and they'd rather push as much out while the trend is hot, even if it shortens that trend, then miss out while another publisher puts a game in that space.)

The point of the article was that the author just gets burned out. He can't compete with how many games come out, so some get lost, and then when he's ready to get to GameX5 GameX6 is already out and he's behind the curve, as multiplayer opponents have moved on and, frankly, it can be hard to want to continue with something old when something new is out and hard to want to play something new when you missed a point in the series.

Can't say I disagree. Working sucks. I'm still hooked on BL2, having not even finished one go-through yet. I have Halo 4 (got it for $25 last week), which I'd like to play with the guy I've been playing BL2 with, and he was a big BLOPS fan (I haven't played any of the Treyarch CoDs) and, honestly, I put something like 9 days into MW3 multiplayer (it was actually a whole lot of fun.)
Too much out there. Can't keep up with it all. Plus I really want to play Dishonored and X-COM. Those will get picked up 50% off over the summer I think, but I'd rather play either of them than any of the other big games, but big multiplayer games are significantly more fun at launch...
