News Comments > Call of Duty: WWII PC Open Beta Begins
4. Was actually excited about this... Sep 28, 2017, 22:01 JohnBirshire
 
I was actually really excited about this CoD, as I'm not a fan of the jetpack/wall running of the last couple installments.

Preloaded earlier this week, and couldn't wait to play tonight. (Since the last open beta started early, I assumed this one would too)

Loaded it up, played it...and an hour later uninstalled.

The game feels really zoomed in for some reason, even at 90 FoV. Maps are claustrophically small, weapons take up way too much of the screen, very few players in each game, etc.

Just really "meh", through and through. Back to PUBG I imagine, sigh.

16. Priced itself out.. Aug 5, 2017, 16:16 JohnBirshire
 
Whenever I see a developer selling a game for $X, when it could sell 5 times as many copies for half that, I can't help but think of how terribly ignorant they are. Economics much?!

This price is hurting him, everyone who bought the game, and everyone who didn't because the price was too high.

Pull your head out of your butt.

12. Embarassing... Jul 29, 2017, 14:09 JohnBirshire
 
If I see the word "Twitch" in someone's name, in ANY game, I go after them relentlessly. You want to show off your "skills" to people hoping they give you money? I want to kill you on principal.

Trying to ban stream snipers is absurd, this developer needs to quit embarassing themselves.

I watched some people play, essentially they were just attacking inanimate objects nonstop, looked incredibly lame.

2. How does your character work? Feb 5, 2017, 12:31 JohnBirshire
 
Do you create a different character for every server? Or is your character saved locally and travels with you to different servers?

At this point they could offer every free game ever made, and I still wouldn't install that shit.

{PH}88fingers wrote on Nov 4, 2016, 14:04:
So I haven't bought or played a single of the Call of Duty games (and I buy a shitloads of games) yet.

Should this be the 1st time? These games don't go down much in price, so if it is recommended, I may consider it for my 1st time.

I've been a hardcore gamer my entire life. I have pictures playing Mission Impossible on the Commodore 64 when I was 2 years old. Have played nearly 1,000 games on PC and various consoles. There are very few genres I've avoided, playing a little bit of everything. Single player and multi player. (with more of the latter lately) I am well aware of all the vile that the Call of Duty games get, especially from my "elitist" gaming peers who say they wouldn't be caught dead playing one. Every single time one is released, you see the negativity, verbatim. People literally despise this series.

Despite all of the above, I still buy one of them every couple years, and enjoy a solid 100-300 hours playing it. Yes, they are kind of repetitive. Yes, some have had a couple issues. But at the end of the day, they are selling a bajillion copies because they are FUN. Not because everyone buying them is an idiot. So just do it. If you are disappointed, now you know. But don't rule it out just because of what other people say.

If you buy this, you are a moron.

Sell your PC, buy a potato, plug a playstation controller into it.

Well, thats quite a MEH review of the remake of MOO.

"Meh" is pretty much the general concensus for the game.

I was obsessed with MOO when it was released, played it 100's of hours. Yet, I didn't even attempt to try this remake, after I read a developer interview in which he said things like "Combat wasn't a focus for us, because nobody played the original for the combat." Gee, thanks 20 year old kid, for telling us what we enjoyed while playing a game that was released when you were a toddler, appreciate your sentiment. Pass.

My friends and I played this multiplayer for 100's of hours over dial-up modem and LAN parties when it came out.

I'd absolutely love to be able to play multiplayer Deathmatch over Steam.

Is that going to be possible?

Hah, like the WASD standard is something to be proud of. ESDF is far superior, you have much quicker and easier access to other hotkeys and your hand rests in a better position. But it's like the Imperial vs Metric system argument. So many people already used WASD, so they just stuck to it, because changing was too hard.

Watching videos of what's become of WoW, all I can say is Thank Jeebus for the community painstakingly preserving WoW classic via emulation.
Pfft, community, hah.

There are companies, not communities, making millions of dollars a year hosting WoW servers. www.warmane.com They have WotLK, Cataclysm, and MoP servers. More people online than you'll find on any WoW server as well. For example, one of their WotLK servers has 12,000 people online right now. Many WoW servers have 1-2,000 if they're lucky.

I don't see them doing this ever again. They're just doing it this time because some people got in early, and they want everyone to start at the same time.

Then why are they wiping the servers on Sunday and releasing the game on Thursday?

When bad news happens, people immediately open up shorts and dump, this is no different than the stock market, or commodities, or any number of investments. 50% retraces happen rather quickly however. *Edit: Yesterday it dropped to 485, now it's back up to nearly 600* It'll eventually blow over and will resume it's climb.
