I can't recall an ending to any other CoD game that set up a sequel as much as the ending of Ghosts did. Hated or not, it's weird that they would just walk away like that.

Eh, I kind of like that the ending of The Dread Doughy Man vs Strikeforce Dad just has you stuck in a hole in the ground. I mean it's not like it's any better than leaving the dog on an exploding aircraft carrier.

I think it's clear that Activision is beyond traditional hate, they're all about numbers, and Ghosts had the numbers. I thought maybe it sold poorly for an Infinity Ward game, but according to the link, it sold more than MW2.

Looking at the numbers, is Advanced Warfare going to be a standalone as well?

I wouldn't doubt that AW is since it does at least have a self-contained story. I'm betting Activision is probably busy bullying Treyarch into working on a WW1 game because of all the good feedback Battlefield 1 is getting right now, and probably trying to get Sledgehammer to make whatever they're doing right now less futurey.

That said, Ghosts is probably the most heavily-mocked CoD game (with AW following for the whole "press F to pay respects" thing) and I can't imagine IW never heard any of the writeups on how the SP campaign's characters were boring and the scenario didn't make any sense (an action involving "our last carrier" and multiple space shuttle launches?). Plus I'm not convinced even they knew where they were going with it.

I really didn't have a problem with the press F for respects. We are playing a game where we immerse ourselves in a Marine who lost a brother in arms and I think we should pay respects as part of the game.

I actually liked the premise of Ghosts but the game later devolved into forget about this epic war between a beaten US vs a more powerful country and giving us a single villain to chase after. why can't be just fight the losing war against the Federation in ruined American cities were we are not the top dogs of the world.

I've pretty much given up on the Call of Duty franchise since aren't doing anything new or different with the games.

Anyway, I've been playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt a lot as of lately (I got the game for Christmas), and I've got to say that it's now has to be my favorite fantasy RPG game, and ranks up as one of my favorite games of all time. Hell, I've now recently gotten into the books that inspired the games.

I am excited for Uncharted 4 coming out tomorrow.

Yeah, I just thought it was kind of insulting to have the prompt explain what you're doing by pressing it rather than have you infer that someone laying a hand on a coffin isn't trying to marry a vampire or whatever.

Also, want to know what happens when you have three neural network AIs trying to make Magic the Gathering cards? Well, um, this:

So it wouldn't be insulting if they didn't add a description to what you are supposed to do and just put a prompt of whatever the action button is?

Yeah, I never like it when someone tells you to do something like get in a car and a prompt appears that says "get in" like you've forgotten what happened one second ago.
