    Well we pick on Russia because they don't care.

    No, no, that's wrong and foolish.

    It's a lazy appeal to the lowest common denominator.

    Also because Activision and company are too scared of using China since they'll lose Chinese sales (though I doubt many play CoD).

    Heck they even teased Black Ops II as having China as an enemy, only to have them be an ally and only an enemy if you suck at playing the game.

    See: Red Dawn remake. North America is terrified of offending China, but not Russia or North Korea.

    Suck, seriously? While I figured Strike Force out, your units are so ineffective in tactical view, so I feel far more comfortable being an OMA. Unless its I.E.D., which really forces you to do it in tactical view.

    China isn't the problem, Call of Duty Online is exclusive mainland China so far.

    Sounding like Ghosts is running at 720p on Xbox One and 1080p on PS4.

    I thought it was... Germans, Germans, Germans, Germans, Germans, Germans, Russians/Middle Easterners, Russians?

    Anyone think a COD-Based WW1 game would work well?

    No.

    How would quicktime events work in conjunction with trench warfare?

    There are quicktime events in Caca Doody games? Since when?

    I have been wondering if anyone else was expecting or wanting Modern Warfare 3 Survival Mode to be like the Wave Defense Special Ops (Sniper Fi and Homeland Security) from Modern Warfare 2 with the addition of stuff like Juggernauts (The one thing I do think they go right, other than not being like the Modern Warfare 2 version) and armories (With more customization than what we got)? Instead of what we got, which was Modern Warfare Zombies, where the enemies just get increasingly tougher like the Treyarch Zombies, but instead of being Zombies they are Modern Warfare enemies. Extinction looks like it could be interesting, but honestly seems to me like its going to be just as similar to Zombies as Survival Mode was, primarily thanks to aliens as enemies, though I can't really say for certain since there still aren't very many details on it.

    I think it's kind of telling to the state of creativity in these games that "trying something fresh" means "replace the zombies with aliens and leave the mode pretty much unchanged."

    It's a new thing.

    So anyway, I just hope I can massacre some people who are different to me in the next COD. [face_flag]

    So I am curious about the CoD games but never played one yet so far but I guess I am unsure if I would like it what would because I am new to these kind of games. So what would make me like CoD out of all these first person shooter games?

    Go play Battlefield before you play CoD.

    I don't think CoD is better than Battlefield, but then I don't think that Battlefield is better either. Battlefield has a battle experience which can be huge in scale, while CoD is more about small maps and lots of camping. Personally I really liked the Black Ops 2 campaign and the Ghosts campaign looks interesting too. Mostly that's to do with the variety of environments, but I'm curious as to how the story will pan out.

    The best thing to do would be to try a demo if there is one.

    I guess thats what I will do if one is available. So is it at all important to buy the past games of CoD if I wanted to buy this new one?

    Do you feel that killing people for your country is a good thing?

    If so, these games are for you.

    I played a bit of BF:BC2 and COD:BO MP and sorry but Far Cry 3 has a better MP IMO.
