For the record I can't play this game because my graphics card is 5 years old and can't run directx 11. CoD can infact run though on an xbox 360 which was released 9 years ago.

Say what you will about #gamergate, but it really was an indication that the gaming industry is becoming infested with people that don't actually care about gaming and are committed to its destruction. Obviously #gamergate has nothing directly to do with lovely PC support for the new CoD, it is just the canary in the mine with regards to this stuff.

So basically gently caress this gay earth. There is no logical reason why this game should not be able to be played on older graphics cards. I can understand low frame rates, or maybe some graphical glitches, but to simply just straight up not being able to run is just not right.

What it really comes down to is that most evil people are lazy, and when something requires a lot of effort and talent to master the chances of it attracting evil people are lower.

No its about a bunch of assholes on both sides of the "debate" acting like children and trying to destroy an industry. Like I said, it is just the canary in the mine. I'm sure there are a bunch of rear end in a top hat lazy programmers that don't feel like coding in lower levels of directx support in the new CoD, or people being pressured by executives to make older cards obsolete.

The real word is "corruption" and it has nothing to do with gaming journalism or feminism or whatever. The gaming industry because of its high level of technical sophistication has largely been immune to a lot of issues regarding corruption, but as it becomes larger and takes in more and more revenue it is bound to attract people that don't really care about it and are either there simply for the money or see it as an easy target to cause problems for people and ruin things.

Apthous, I think you should compare Hannah Arendt's text "Eichmann in Jerusalem..." to Advanced Warmongering's multiplayer development cycle in a 2000 word essay-post. I believe we will all understand your grievances upon the posting of that post; we are not there yet.

I'll compare #lamergate to a bunch of teenagers trying to shoot up a gun show.

Honestly the new game looks sort of fun. I don't think I'd ever pay more than 20 bucks for it, but when would you ever for a CoD game?

Well since they removed player counts from the playlists we can't even confirm! But the numbers have to be pretty low as it's hard to get a full match in NA for anything other than Domination and TDM. Even ground war has been spotty.

Hopefully that's just launch issues since the multiplayer is actually pretty fun.

I'm kinda on the fence since Ghosts was the worst piece of poo poo I've ever bought and spent a grand total of 6 hours on the multiplayer. I also dont get why it has to be 60, 60$ is like 48.

It's really very fun, but connection issues can ruin a string of games and player count is overall pretty low. Peak was ~30,000 yesterday.

That said, run around like an idiot with a dubstep gun or a dubstep laser gun, you'll probably have a good time.

This. I want to play CTF or Domination or even Hardcore which I love. There are never any games during the day or late evenings. I wonder if its to late for me to get a refund from steam.

30k seems great to me, I dont remember the peaks of previous CoDs but Im pretty sure it was in the 20-30k ballpark. gently caress it, I'll get it.

Opinions on whether the game is bad or not aside (it is bad, though), the game peaked at like 32k active players the day of launch and is already slipping down to 20k at super primetime and barely 10k at offtimes.


If that's not a good reason to not get it then you really are a loving moron.

Let's hug this out I think I was too harsh homey.

Also this game is fun and I bought it but if you wanna wait till its on sale or just wait until a better FPS comes out that's also a very reasonable opinion to have, I think.
