I wish I was rich enough that I was on the edge of my seating wait for this thing to be available.

So now we have 3 studios doing CoD, with each getting 30 months to make a game. That should make them much, much, much better.

Wanna bet?

Like I said, "much, much, much better" doesn't necessarily mean "good."

So....the thread is back a ways. But I fired up CoD Ghosts.....now...I have most of the games, and am a fan of the series when it was done right. I thought "It can't be as bad as they are saying right? I mean, it is 2013-2014, there is no way they can screw this up?!"

Wow was I wrong. There is no combination of settings that make the game look good. Period. It looks like Modern Warfare. They took several steps back graphically, and the net code is utterly terrible.

I think they are done. One can only assume a free weekend was because sales were terrible, as they have never even budged off of their price tag before. What a poorly executed game.

They're not done, I think they just realized 18 months isn't enough to make a new CoD. You can iterate, but not innovate.

Given how bad the multiplayer in Ghosts is, though, it needs to be more than that.

No real plans, no. I'm thinking of adding a night of heavy drinking to the agenda however. Just for shits and giggles you know.

I like the cut of your jib sir!

Lol I just bought a custom made flask of Etsy - man I love Etsy - and it has an old 3 masted Schooner on it and I had the phrase put on it..."Three Sheets to the Wind". I'll take a pic of it and post it because it's pretty sweet.

I'm going to make a list of things I need to do and then I'm going to sit at my computer browsing the web and playing the occasional game. Maybe even bust out the work laptop, remote in, and then alt-tab back to the gaming desktop.

I swear the Discovery, and History channels do nothing but emit dangerous levels of stupid anymore. There's speculative science and then there's fantasy and fraud, and they seem to do much more of the latter than the former.

heheheh Yea I moved over to the SciHD which appears to have picked up where those left off when they were very good channels to watch.

The sniper link was really cool. I found a few of them, totally fell for the fake hideout, and really only the guy hiding in the grass right underneath the tree's shade was incredibly obvious. (Because the grass where he was was a lot higher, and since it's in the shade for a good part of the day, there's no reason for the grass to be higher in that particular area.)

And all that is with knowing there are snipers there. Without that, I wouldn't have given any of these a second glance, except maybe the tall grass one.
