Who are sledgehammer games? The hacks who Activision use to replace the creators of the original call of Duty when Call of Duty was at least decent...
they learn some lessons, even what activision went some tough times after the IW "chaos", maybe the "last remants" of IW will merge with sledgehammer soon than later, and stop this BF3 v. COD: MW3 "beef", because the winner is the gamer.
COD is like a blockbuster movie that we all should go rent to watch.However, the arcade-like multiplayer component of COD to me is lame and only there to drain the parents money as the kiddies purchase overpriced map packs that arnt worth 5 bucks. Battlefield is the opposite.Thier single player mode is thier addon,while the multiplayer aspect is the focus.DLC is ALWAYS high qual and worth much more than they sell it. So for me I plan on renting MW3,,beating it in a few days then spending the next few years playing BF3 online.
WAIT did these tools just say, 'Fans enjoy the game uncharted, you can imagine that genres meets a world class franchise" So Uncharted isnt a world class franchise? These guys are such tools for activision, just pure disrespect for every game that isnt part of them.
@holtrocks what are you basing the cheap comment on, they were making a stand-alone cod project in 3rd person before being asked to do mw3. I'm gonna assume you have no evidence to back up the financial aspects of activation and how much they pay sledgehammer. I for one can't wait for this, love the idea of killpoints, think cod xp event sounds amazing! and could grow to one day be as big as blizzcon. Wish i was there $1,000,000 tournament! ftw! lets all hope its the most balanced mw game, no one wants the kid using one man army top of the board.
Only singleplayer and multiplayer 'maps' are different. The rest of it is same with MW2 . MW3 is kind of map package. :S
@nyran125- there isnt a single industry in the world that does not have companys rip off each others ideas. The perfect example ( and i am not trying to trash talk the game unlike you ) is black ops that as you say riped off the gun games, weapons, wagers etc. from a little familiar game called counter strike
All i hear them saying is : " bla bla money bla bla no hard work to put out a decent game bla bla more money money money. It really is a shame, i remember the days when i had a ton of fun playing call of duty multiplayer...
yeah i agree. call of duty single player is easily one of the best single action fps games out there, it SMASHES , decimates, destroys and OWNS Bad company single player.... People go on about COD is copy and paste and bla bla, so you have any idea how much bad company 2 was ripped off from other games.. that entire snow stage was ripped RIGHT out of Crysis (it was done so terribly in bad company it was a joke), the intros were ripped right out of call of duty and the 4 guys idea is ripped straight from Left 4 dead. It was practically copied from every fps game i can think and had ZERO originality. At least call of duty STICKS to its own design that IT created.
If you are here to write off call of duty then just please get the hell out.......this is one of the most respected franchises in the video game industry not because of the money it brings.....think about the effort that went into designing the game and not just say its a copy and paste game
The guys running Sledgehammer ran the same team that came up with DeadSpace.Alot of the core are from that team.They have gone out to get good talent in and lets face it its not hard to find alot of good talent that have been axed in present economic climate. This is their 1st title and their rep is going to be "made " or broken on its outcome. These aren't stupid guys,they would not have started this unless they had the "Juice" to do a good job. I expect it to be good,if not very good.
Hey guys guess what sledgehammer has never made a single multiplayer mode in any game and why did they get picked to do MW3 multiplayer? There cheap activision did not have to pay them anything almost. no they got sledgehammer because they needed more ppl to work on it so they can get it out has fast has possible not because they can bring some quality
Can't wait for MW3 on PS3! ...and Battlefield 3 deserves a PC version for me! ...So, there is NO contest! :)
Looks like fun to me. Why write it off before you play it? This brand loyalty / fanboyism is getting ridiculous. I want to play this and BF3.
Nice little interview, they seem like a pretty decent studio plus a lot of these guys worked on Dead Space one I like that game a lot they really got the atmosphere down very well it actually felt like you were on that spaceship
yea who is sledgehammer? never heard of em are they recent and haven't done anything spectacular yet
You know whats great guys. Even though Infinity Ward is gone, I think this can be a new chapter for Call of Duty. Brand new eyes, looking at the same game set up! These guys are the same as us! Fans! Now they have a chance to make this game. This could be great.
i actually think it would have been better if they started a new series instead of working off of someone else's. I feel like it would really constrict that teams creative potential to build off of someone else's ideas other than their own.
@NoX5 Dude... It's the audio director that says that. He's talking about making it realistic and believable from an audio standpoint... which is what all good sound designers do on any game, no matter how ridiculous and unrealistic the actual game is. Ultimately that helps immerse the player into the overall experience. Don't get me wrong, I hate COD as well... but I'm also a sound designer, and what he says makes perfect sense.
just remember guys, do what activision tells you or you'll all have pink slips a week after the game is released.
Why don't they understand that it's all about the multi-player ... it's that ONE aspect that's crack to gamers. They can keep their 6 hour single player ... There's no immersion ... only roughing up strangers online with friends/family
LOL @ 4:50... 'WE'RE GOING FOR REALISM"...... R O F L this game is so far from real it's a -BEEP- joke. waaaaooooooow. lol wow
Know what I do when I don't like something? I don't give it any attention by posting comments on a video about it. Maybe if people learned to just enjoy what they like and let others do the same the world would be much better off.
MW3 will suck compared to the other CoD games i know it the graphics look bad, yet i am praising the audio and the scope but that is all, i am saying the CoD seires will end after Black Ops 2
Nope, not buying not gonna either, maybe later when its like 10 bux on steam or some thing but with that said, my investment has gone to pre order for Battlefield 3 which i played the Alpha n will have access to the beta, by far a more superior game in every aspect compared to COD: MW period!
Give me a MW2 game with a little more exciting story and some other cool things a POW! It turns into a good game
