So with some of the original IW devs returning is Modern Warfare 4 next year?

God knows no one here wants Infinite Warfare.

It seems like it. One of the Respawn guys posted on Resetera that those employees left about a year before EA bought them.

IW sold poorly compared to other CODs so I canít imagine them doing anything but MW4.

Seriously. It's not a question of if there's gonna be a fad or a consumer trend they're going to have to throw half their game away to react to, it's a question of which one(s) it'll be.

If everyone uses one of the same player models, doesn't that make identifying friend or enemy a little bit harder vs all teams having a very distinct visual identity in previous games?

Are there no more unique announcers?

I paid like $3 to have a grandma yell at me during matches and don't regret it one bit. It's probably going to fold into microtransactions, which I'm fine with. Couple of bucks to have Snoop Dogg, or Ice Cube, or an old lady hollering ENEMY AC130 ABOVE is a good return on investment, much better than boxes of random poo poo.

Blops 3 used IFF lighting (blue and red iirc) on the character models to make it very easy to differentiate friend from foe. They'll probably use a similar system.

Same for Infinite Warfare. It may not seem intuitive if you're not used to it, but it's to the point where I don't even have to consciously think about whether the Christmas lights are red or blue anymore.

When EA bought them, all of Respawnís job openings disappeared (and they had a lot of them). Theyíre going to run them into the ground, just like they did Bioware.

BF5 has no season pass. All the new content will be free. Looks like BO4 might be going in this direction partially. Hopefully we learn more at E3.

Oh and the IW season pass is $25 this week.

You want your gun ads as you approach, because if anyone looks left you're getting shot, and that pillar inside is good cover and forces a fifty-fifty choice of left or right. Also, some players slide and pre-fire because they know it's a deathtrap.

Noted not-dead game Infinite Warfare is having a quad weekend (double xp, weapon xp, mission xp, keys) so letís shoot some mans. And maybe, just maybe use some keys.

EDIT: Actually Iím doing 7 day survivor on Dead Rising so I may skip tonight or just say gently caress it and do it next week.

Also two hacks went up:

150 keys - Epic Weapon Kit Hack. 1 weapon, 1 camo, 1 accessory (all epic)
1000 salvage - Luck of the Irish. Any 1 gun from Luck of the Irish aka a chance at the X-EON Horizon aka the greatest gun in the game.

The weapon kit hack is trash unless you really want a random epic. Luck of the Irish is 16 guns: 5 rates, 9 legendary, 1 epic. 32 total including Mk. 2ís

It gains perks/traits as your killstreak increases (also it naturally has +range.) According to Reddit, the progression is:
  • 2 kills: Haste (Slightly increased movement speed)
  • 4 kills: Ninja (Gain Dead silence when jumping or wall running)
  • 6 kills: Takedown (Kills don't show death markers to enemies)
  • 8 kills: Engineer
  • 12 kills: Deathbringer (Double kills refill the magazine)
  • 16 kills: Deatomizer (Get 10 more kills with the Horizon to earn a nuke. In modes where a nuke isn't an instant win, you can earn one every 10 kills.)

Only the first three are documented in-game.

So lemme get this straight: if you can hold a streak for 26 kills, you then get a nuke for every 10 kills after as long as itís on the same streak?

Seems out there. But eh.

They added infected to black ops 3 for the weekend. The games are super quick and nearly impossible to lose so itís making short work of that triple play special contract I apparently abandoned last year at some point.
