  • Why do you think that the press made such a big deal out of Cyberpunk's release? Including the rush to sh*t all over it as 'too short' when the reviewers did the straight up campaign without doing any of the side missions or explored the map outside those mission areas? CDPR should have done some better beta testing, and bug fixes, yes, but the game isn't exactly short. But, so long as the reviewers could point to something, then no one had to talk about the weaknesses of other franchises, and they could kick a studio that had come out of 'nowhere' to kick every RPG's ass with The Witcher 3. They leapt at it. Because that meant that the big studios wouldn't have to improve their stuff, and they could keep pumping out kind of truncated games, and then say, "WHERE'S YOUR CDPR NOW?" Reviewers are just glad that CoD had Infinite Warfare and some stumbles for a few years, because they can't fault the story or the gameplay really. Because the press and studios all love a good horserace, where no one is really winning too much, so that they can do the bare minimum.

    Everyone likes a winner, up until the point that they realize that winner is going to have to retire or have something happen to them before they can hype anyone else. Michael Jordan. Tiger Woods. And, yeah, CoD. Or rather, in order to compete, folks are really going to have work for it.
  • I enjoyed playing Battlefield 1.

  • Kotaku is trying to give my phone cancer :(

    The only reason I want MS to buy Activision is to get that godawful scumsucking shiatbag Bobby Kotick out of the gaming industry.

    Same here, the missus got it for me as a gift (she thought it was part of the CoD franchise) I ended up enjoying it immensely.
  • I was always BF over CoD. But 2042 was shiat, and it's been far more misses than hits (really started goin down when Hardline came out). Between glitches/bugs/exploits and shiat balancing, I haven't enjoyed an actual match of the few I've played. While I haven't been a fan of CoD since Modern Warfare, there's no denying when they release a game, it actually works and works right. Granted they're dealing with less since you don't have to worry about vehicle or building programming/physics, but Activision hasn't released a "broken" CoD yet, while EA loves throwing out half-baked shiat and hoping the player base stays for 2 years while they figure out how it actually works.
  • Mantour: I enjoyed playing Battlefield 1.


    Yeah, loved the campaign, hated the multiplayer.
    Meanwhile I love Call of Duty multiplayer and don't care for the campaigns!
  • CoD WW2 from 2018 was the best CoD. War alone makes it better than the rest
  • How about we just make it so that all consoles have the same OS and then all games can be played on any console?

    Could you imagine if all entertainment worked like this? "Sorry, you can't stream Hulu on this TV, this is a Netflix set."
  • I quite enjoyed BF Bad Company 2 and Vietnam multiplayer.
    Never been inclined to play a CoD/MW game.
  • Mantour: I enjoyed playing Battlefield 1.


    My buddies and I who are still playing BF1 often comment it's a shame they didn't just reskin the same game as a WWII game or even modern combat game.

    you're describing how all entertainment works like this. you need a hulu account to watch the shows that are only available on hulu and a netflix account to watch the shows only available on netflix.

    Not exactly, ReapTheChaos is saying what if the physical television could only play one or the other, regardless of whether you had an account or not.
    Like, if Samsung partnered with Hulu, and made it exclusive, so you could only use a Hulu subscription on a Samsung television and no other.

    I mean, I guess, other than the fact that Cyberpunk was a horribly made game that was flatly unplayable for a large percentage of players.

  • Gentlemen, gentlemen, please. Maintain decorum.
    We have enough shiat to dump on everyone involved here.
  • Is the new CoD any good?  I was thinking of getting the last one but the screenshot showed a person in a WWII battlefield wearing a bright neon mascot uniform and I didn't want anything to do with that.

    I guess what I'm asking is does the multiplayer have stupid shiat like people running around with cat ears on?

    Not yet, but it will eventually.

    /sorry for ruining the game for you
  • Battlefield 1942 was the peak.

    Your argument is invalid.

    So, Microsoft buying Activision sounds like monopolization to you, and your solution is for everybody to use the same OS?

    I'm not sure that accomplishes what you think it does.
  • American Decency Association: Battlefield to COD is as chess is to checkers


    Yes and no. The latest modern warfare feels like battlefield in a lot of ways. Low TTK, great feeling guns, and genuine rewarding response for accuracy and precision.

    The new addiction for me isn't warzone 2.0 it's the new DMZ mode they added. Plays a lot like escape from tarkov, with many missions to do (and I mean a lot) in the warzone map that has a mix of deadly AI (seriously) and real squads of three. The gimmick is that you have to exfil at the end of the round to keep stuff you acquired to take into the next from armor to kill streaks.

    If straight MP is your bag, they have "ground war" which has tanks and vehicles, and various conquest/domination maps.
  • The last Battlefield game i purchased was 2142.

    No, not 2042, I meant 2142.

    I did enjoy that one though.

    The last CoD I played was Modern Warfare 2.

    No, not that one, the 2009 one. Why the fark do we have a "Modern Warfare (2)" and "Modern Warfare 2 (2)"? Those should be Modern Warfare 4 and 5, who on earth decided to reset the clock after 3?

    Everyone likes a winner, up until the point that they realize that winner is going to have to retire or have something happen to them before they can hype anyone else. Michael Jordan. Tiger Woods. And, yeah, CoD. Or rather, in order to compete, folks are really going to have work for it.


    Oh come off it. CyberPunk had massive technical issues and was all but unplayable on the PS4 and Xbone. And that was made worse by CDPR only allowing reviewers access to the PC version while promising the consoles versions performed the same.

    Then CDPR compounded it by doing everything wrong when their bullshiat was revealed.

    And you are an idiot if you think the media doesn't go after larger studios. Remember Fallout 76? Battlefront II?

    CoD is repetitive and generic, but it usually runs well and you know what you are getting.

    I've played it through several times and enjoy the voice acting and the old school feel of the grenades. I wish there were some kind of special powers though, other than the couple things your buddies help you out with.

    I got to the point of no return on PS4 while it was buggy. It wasn't any worse than Red Dead Redemption 2 or Witcher 3 and, unlike Bethesda Games, only the most minor quests were unfinishable and no save files were eaten. It reminds me of Mass Effect Andromeda, which was buggy, but very playable and, frankly, enjoyable, at least on consoles. I understand everyone piling on them for a buggy release, as they should, but the same level of scrutiny needs to be applied on other major studio messes.

    /Still haven't finished Fallout 4 because of a game-blocking bug.
    //Pity there haven't been any Fallout releases since then.
