Hoping that the rumored AES256 is true. If so, you really can't ask them to do much more, aside from encryping all of your PM that way (which may not be a bad idea).

I wish they would come out and say it, though, but I understand the libel reasons for them not doing so. Even my friends as Valve won't comment on it, so you know they are taking it seriously.

COD8:MW3: Contemporary Warfare

Sorry, I screwed that up.

It should be: CoD8:MW3:WW3:Part1

I'll strive to do better next time.

There is ONE REASON why the majority of the posts below are negative. THAT REASON is becuase people like me OWN YOU THE SECOND YOU LOG ONTO MULTIPLAYER SERVERS.

And I dont mean they are getting beat 12-8. I mean they get OWNED by hard core players 33-1.

AND THAT 1 is from second chance when I happen to be reloading and knifing some other poor fool.

THATS WHY THEY DONT LIKE IT. HAHAhAHAAHAhaahahaaha

Wow.

Hey, Blue: you should talk to Verizon. Looks like we're getting XBL Forums postings here. Probably a mis-route.

...an intense single-player campaign that picks up immediately following the events of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2 and escalates into World War 3...

Sounds like Michael Bay took over the franchise. I thought the whole premise of MW was to fight skirmishes in order to avoid WW3....

5 HOURS?

Seriously Activision?

$12.50/hour of SP action is BS.

Good lord.

They've been 5 hours for like 5 years now, why are you surprised?

Maybe I'm remembering it wrong, but MW2 and BO seemed much longer than 5 hours.

Any word on how long the SP campaign is? (serious, please)

^D^

One review said it was very brief, and that it took the guy about 5 hours.

5 HOURS?

Seriously Activision?

$12.50/hour of SP action is BS.

Good lord.

I get the same playtime out of Deus Ex DLC for a mere 15 bucks.

Definitely a rental. At best.

Wow what a ridiculous scenario. It's like they have watched too many 24 episodes.

Exactly. It isn't "mature", it's juvenile.

Ah, ok. And spitting on someone or wishing them a violent death because they didn't design a game the way you wanted it to be made IS mature.

I get it.

Completely.

We have 3rd person cover mechanics AGAIN after the abysmal failure of the last two R6 games that tried it.

I'm prefacing what I say by first saying it is not an endorsement nor a criticism of the game, but you really need to check the numbers. The "Rainbow Six Vegas" games were the best sellers in the franchise. Period.

I have an iPhone 4s...and, to be blatantly honest, I didn't even know Siri was down. I guess I just don't use it enough to have thought it to be anything more than a glitch, in retrospect.

The point is to simulate gameplay for critical review (usually with an existing game engine) before committing to the hard work of actually making the game.

Game mechanics aside, um, wow...talk about an adult storyline.

O.o

Actually, I'm pretty sure that being a raging sociopath is tightly linked to homicidal tendancies.

They are looking at it wrong.

I believe that a high number of killers play violent video games. I DON'T believe a high number of people that play violent video games are murderers, though.

If that were the case, we'd be drowning in blood.

Add me to Team Dragon (HAH!)

This is one battle that seems obscenely one sided.

Unless, of course, these are black warhorse unicorns with flaming red eyes that stand 30' tall at the shoulder.

Well, that's still probably one-sided.

I was just thinking the other day the kinds of rendering algorithms I want to add to this. In addition to iOS/Android support.

My port is going to have a very different backend.

So you're saying your code has a nicer ass?

Agreed.

If you make games that are good enough, the piracy becomes noise, just as in the film and music industries.

There are casual pirates and core pirates: core pirates NEVER intend on buying the game, so trying to fight them is a pointless battle. Casual pirates? Well, minimal DRM keeps most of them honest. If the game's great, they probably will buy it anyway.

They already have. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 will come with opening cinematics and the player config menu. The rest of the game will be purchasable as DLC at the rate of $10/level.

On a more serious note, piracy is just as rampant on the consoles, and it becomes even easier if you don't shive a git about the console not being connected to the Internet.

Want to fight piracy? Make a good game that sells well at a reasonable price, then the pirated copies wil just be a part of the noise (see Torchlight, Quake, DXHR).

Furthermore, piracy is more a symptom rather than a cause of problems in the gaming industry. Whether they know it or not, they are being given the same kind of message that the RIAA and the MPAA have been served by their content users. They can either fight it with lawsuits and by punishing legitimate users, or they can listen to what they are being told and adapt their marketing and sales strategies accordingly.
