I haven't played it, but I still strongly disagree with your claims. Traversal is nothing new. Crysis, Titanfall and even Halo come to mind. I also wouldn't classify a COD style game as being like Doom/Quake/Unreal. They're verrrry different.
If you haven't played it...then I can't expect you to understand the feeling I'm talking about. Too many judge a game before trying it. This new CoD requires at least 5 hours of dedicated learning before you can judge its movements.

We all have different opinions, but considering Blues News started as a Doom/Quake/id news site, I strongly believe AW is the next great arena shooter. As I've said before, I'm no newbie. AW plays very much like the old school shooters, flying through the sky shooting people like crazy.

All I care about is pure FPS skill, a la Quake 2 railing. And AW is worthy, IMO.

I do find the mouse acceleration to be annoying, though. I can't seem to get rid of it, even in windows or with my SetPoint software.
Did you edit both the config.cfg and config_mp.cfg to change these to from 140 default to zero:

seta cl_pitchspeed "0"
seta cl_yawspeed "0"

This solved all the terrible jerky mouse movement for me.

COD is a linear snooze fest with 2001 gameplay and ok at best graphics. ACU is a next gen open world with some unique features and graphics that push the enveloppe.

Do what you want with ACU, but don't encourage COD!
Too each their own. You obviously don't enjoy scripted FPS games. Many of us do. And naturally, we buy CoD mostly for the multiplayer/coop. I'm guessing you haven't tried AW MP because it is really quite a unique experience with the freedom of movement around the maps. But twitch FPS games aren't for everyone and that's fine. But I stand by saying AW is one of the finest arena shooters ever made, right up there with Doom/Quake/Unreal.

At the risk of being flamed I will say this is why I respect Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and think it is worth support with our money. It comes out on schedule with a very solid PC version. Moreover, it doesn't require dumb uPlay or Origin but simply connects online to fetch your profile when playing MP. And it simply works.

Anyway, my point is...we as gamers should boycott terrible business practices such as releasing Unity in such a state. It is a messed up world when the new Call of Duty is the benchmark for reasonable and quality business practices.

Edit: I also prefer a $50 Season Pass that includes everything than lame in-game microtransactions like Unity has. Just let me pay for my game in the real world, and keep real money out of the actual game.

a design masterpiece? ...it's good that you enjoy it, but i think your overarching praise is a tad hyperbolic.

i'm having fun. but this is more akin to Malibu Stacy: Now with Hat than truly revolutionizing anything.
Well, I need to play the game for months before I can say if it stands up to the arena classics (D2, Q2, UT, UT2004, MW1, MW2). I understand AW isn't doing much to win new fans. It didn't want to. Rather it wanted to be the next evolution of CoD-gameplay, not FPS-gameplay, but CoD-gameplay. It did that perfectly IMO.

When I said design masterpiece, what I mean is everything is very well-thought-out. The maps are all good to great (except Instinct which is quite bad). The guns are all pretty well-balanced. Gone are the obnoxious items like bouncing bettys and claymores. This is one of the purest shooters I've played in a long time. To quote Princess Bride, AW is twitch skill versus twitch skill alone.

But yeah, if you enjoy Battlefield ahd like flying vehicles and realistic sniping and all that...then BF is your deal. If you want super-high-intensity-pure-twitch-gaming, AW is the best of the best IMO. But what do I know?!

It means, "NO DEDICATED SERVERS FOR YOU!! COME BACK ONE YEAR!"
Ha, quoted simply because your comment is really funny! That being said...did anyone honestly expect a server browser? I bought AW knowing full well it would use the same P2P method as MW3 and other CoDs. But after 10 hours of playing MP, I honestly haven't had one single game that was laggy. Sure it is the first week, but every game I've played was fine. Maybe I got lucky and maybe I live in a good place (West Coast USA).

Anyway, I stand by my statement that AW gameplay-wise has the most mind-blowing combat I've ever played. This game is a design masterpiece; I'm not lying. This is coming from a hardcore FPS player used to Doom2/Quake2/CSBeta/CS1.6/UT/UT2004/MW1-3. This game is the real deal when it comes to freedom of movement. The skill ceiling is so insanely high. ...just too bad this comes years after CoD has been milked into the ground...

And here the ugly truth is revealed: despite CoD lacking innovation and rehashing the same game modes each year, it is so much more player-friendly than Battlefield. The idea that you can buy upgrades without having to play is horrible. Call of Duty may be tired to some, but it at least has retained its integrity by never implementing Pay-2-Win/Unlock rubbish.

A strange day when Call of Duty has the moral high ground.

Yep, if by skill you mean "hosting the game" .. because that's the fucking "win" button....
Oh yeah? How many hours have you played the game? Did you not win matches where you weren't the host?

Sorry to call you out again...but I highly doubt you have actual experience with losing because you weren't the host in Advanced Warfare. It just isn't a big deal right now with 20k+ players. It is incredibly easy to get into games where you have less than 100 ping and no packet loss. No excuses.

Yep. What a stupid, pointless discussion. The scene isn't meant to make you feel. You are *paying respects*. You aren't supposed to cry. Moveover, this wasn't a QTE. It was a *button prompt*. There is a difference.

Sigh...all these haters and whiners...the funeral scene happens 30 minutes into the game as an *introduction* to the real story...Sledgehammer wasn't trying to make you cry...I shouldn't even engage these lame journalists.

Badly written headline, but good for comedic value. It made me wonder why the game getting released in Poland warranted its own story.
Same here...ah, the English language. The powers that be need to change the word to paulish or something!

Anyway. I played MP last night for several hours. I was BLOWN AWAY. No joke. It was totally amazing and so much fun. Haters will hate, but this isn't just a rehashed CoD. This is what Titanfall should have been.

So yeah, huge credit to Sledgehammer. If you want a very fast, very skillful FPS, I'm declaring AW as king. And please, before you hate, actually play the MP for yourself for at least an hour.

Being a huge fan of the Bioware bygone days, I was actually tempted to preorder. I even opened Origin and viewed the store page.

Then reality set in: greedy DLC deluxe exclusive garbage. Right on the page is a chart telling you what YOU DON'T GET when you buy their game.

Want to give us our asking price of $60? Thanks, but you're a loser and don't get a bunch of fun stuff. Want everything? Then pay $70, idiot.

I cannot support this type of garbage marketing practices. Anyway, here's hoping the game doesn't 'feature' built-in DLC quest givers like DA:O...

News Comments > Call of Duty Zombie Shocker
7. Re: Call of Duty Zombie Shocker Oct 31, 2014, 18:28 Brumbek
 
Well Blue, not to be that guy...but it honestly is a shocker because previously Activision made it *very clear* that the Zombies mode was exclusive to Treyarch-developed Call of Duty games. And technically Treyarch has made less than 50% of Call of Duty games, so Zombies mode has only been in less than half the Call of Duty games.

Linksil wrote on Oct 31, 2014, 13:21:
I REALLY don't get this. I mean WHY have you not released all the info about your new game (excluding sp spoilers) by now?
Yeah, I agree with you. This makes no sense. I find it hard to believe they wanted to keep it a secret just so players could be overjoyed upon starting the game the first time. Maybe I'm too cynical, but hiding this makes me think it is some half-baked mode with barely any content...and only after DLC will it really be worth playing.

I have to give major respect and kudos to Valve's creative team for consistently coming up with funny and beautiful art for these type of events. Granted, I don't care for TF2. Granted, perhaps Valve's amazing skills could be put to use on new games not based on 2004 tech. Still...that Comic was hilarious.

It can't be a worse port than FFX13

I seem to recall a few people defended that port, that's the sad thing.
I don't recall anyone defending the FFXIII port. Defending the game, yes. Defending only 720p? Nope. So not sure what you are talking about...that being said, Durante's fix makes FFXIII perfectly playable at 1080p or higher, so that's good.

...although now that you mention it, FFXIII's port wasn't the worst. I'd argue other ports were much worse...ports that have issues that can never be fixed, ever, like crashing bugs.

So in a sense, I do think people take 720p more seriously than they should. Dark Souls at 720p or FFXIII at 720p were/are both perfectly playable with almost zero bugs. It's the broken coding/crashes that truly ruin a port (Saints Row 2 would be an excellent example, also Deadly Premonition).

Anyway, great to see Valkyria Chronicles coming to PC. I never played it but heard it is fantastic.

Literally 2 minutes ago I was thinking I wish this game had a demo like Civ 5 had. So good times! I appreciate any dev that lets people try the game without having to, um, acquire it other ways just to try it.

11. Re: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Recommended Specs Oct 23, 2014, 14:02 Brumbek
 
This game is looking really good, haters be danged! Over the years the quintessential competitive FPS has gone from Doom 2, Quake 2, CS 1.6, CoD:MW, and Cod:MW3. CoD:AW looks to be the next in line.

I don't care what the haters say. MW3 and AW, both by Sledgehammer, are expertly crafted, high quality shooters. I just can't hate on any game that is expertly crafted and delivers exactly what it promises.

So anyway, my Doom/Quake tournament wins and real-life trophies give me the "street cred" to say CoD:AW is looking real legit. So stop hating on such a well-made FPS.

But does it have advanced next gen fish AI?
New material please. It is far too easy to mock something than to think about it rationally. Infinity Ward's Rubin made foolish comments, and his talk about Ghosts was mostly PR lies. It isn't exactly fair or logical or bring up old jokes about another game made by another developer.

Sledgehammer it seems is actually trying to innovate and deliver the best SP and MP experience so far in CoD. If you don't like CoD then fair enough. But so far Advanced Warfare does seem like an actual evolution of FPS gaming rather than rehash of the same old CoD.

Anyway, I just think each developer should be judged by their own work...not mocked for another studio's bad game. I'm sure everyone will agree politely and engage in enlightened discussion.

Indeed, sometimes positions can not be negotiated to a compromise if they are so fundamentally opposed. In the end it's a fact that like anything that can be consumed as media the resulting opinions will be as numerous as there were viewers...
I have sort of enjoyed being the one defending a game for a change. I'm usually on the other end. I suppose I just have a soft-spot for Square JRPGs. Granted they pretty much all are absurd.

You might be taking them a bit too seriously if you're hating on poor Chocobo-chick in Sazh's afro. Pretty much all JRPGs are full of absurd nonsense to a degree. Even the sacred FFVI's of the world.

In the end, I paid $10 for FFXIII on PS3 and despite finding it tedious and absurd on many levels, I chose to let myself enjoy the game for what it was. At least we can agree that the game had some incredibly amazing graphics!

I am not mad at *you* I just have a very low opinion of FFX13
Well...I liked the story very much. I'm normally the one to tear a story apart, but FFXIII's story made a lot of sense to me.

As to what happened at the end of the game...FFXIII-2 makes that quite clear. There are larger powers at play than even the fal'Cie. You can dislike that if you want, but the story wasn't just cobbled together. It was methodically told over the entire trilogy. Again, you can dislike the premise, but FFXIII's writing itself is very strong.

And to those who say Lightning doesn't have emotion...yes she does. She gets real angry and is fueled by bitter revenge. There are real people who do the same thing. And her character changes over time...even over the trilogy. Hence, I found her interesting.

When I consider Cloud, Squall, Vaan, and other leads, Lightning easily bests them all when it comes to relatability IMO.

But we obviously agree to disagree.

This is strong and pure JRPG to you?
...if you read my post again, you'd see I said FFXIII-2 is a fun and pure JRPG. FFXIII-2. A DIFFERENT GAME. I think you let your rage consume you...at the risk of making you explode again, did you play FFXIII-2? I'm guessing you didn't. So to put it your way...READING!

Anyway...the point is Snow *is* careless. That is his personality. And that story arc is well-developed. Remember how Snow is confronted by Hope? Hope is bitter and blames Snow. Remember that? The point is this is all realistic storytelling. Careless people. Blind optimism leading to trouble. And Snow and Hope both have very excellent voice actors making those scenes even better.

And if you don't even realize FF13 *is* about how characters respond to tragedy, then you really weren't paying attention and didn't understand the story at all.

And if you don't understand why the l'Cie tried to fight their fate instead of giving up (and turning Cieth)...then you once again fail to comprehend the story. The story is about responding to tragedy and deciding to fight against tyranny (the Fal'Cie) even if you don't know if you can win. I won't say more to avoid spoilers.

So just to drive you even more mad, I will once again reaffirm FF13 as a very strong story with interesting characters. The fact that I can talk about each one in such detail is a testament to how well-developed they are. They aren't stereotypes.

And dangit, I'm glad to have a game with a brooding female lead! Most female leads are all optimistic and upbeat. Lightning is different and interesting to me and millions of others.
