Whats the word with the Rambo and Die Hard updates, this just skins or what?

It's always just skins or character models. 

 

Personally they can fuck off. I dont and never will care about skins or cosmetics. Especially in a FPS. I find it a load of shite and hate the whole practice.

I've been enjoying completing the different challenges to unlock operatives recently tbh, each to their own I guess.

 

That's different. You are unlocking stuff by gameplay. Paying for the privilege, na.

Yeah the really good stuff always comes in the 2400 moonbuck packs or whatever. I love cosmetics but they're way overpriced in this. CoD is one of the few I've seen where the battlepass stuff is of considerable worse quality than the paid for stuff. Subjective maybe, but that's how it seems.

 

I've entirely fallen off this this season. Then last one was a chore, the game just isn't as good as Modern Warfare (which I tried to go back to but got and decimated at) and it got stale very quickly. Damn shame.

I bought John McClane. Yes it’s a rip off, but I had some reward points to use. I love Die Hard(best Christmas movie ever) and playing gun game with the quotes when you get a kill has already justified the purchase! 
 

I would have bought Al Powell too if it were an option! 
 

I didn’t think I’d like Cold War after loving Modern Warfare, but it’s been great. I took a punt via cdkeys at a good discount, mainly as I wanted some Series X eye candy. Most of my play time has been on the Gunfight mode that MW introduced. It’s fantastic, especially the tournaments they put up now and again. 

 

The 80’s game mode Die Hard Point is a bit annoying though, no HC option, so it’s full of quick scope sniper wankers. Looking forward to the Rambo gun game mode ☺️

Strange game this - how much they must spend developing an idea only to ditch it and remove it weeks later.

 

I quite enjoyed the Rambo Gun Game but now its gone - probably only lasted 3 weeks - then it was replaced by another Gun Game type for 2 weeks - now the update completely removes it again.

 

I hope the new COD whateveritis will remove the ability to jump and fire properly - the tactics used in this are completely daft. Everyone jumping around. I'm sure when this game released initially you could cut them down with your bullets, but it seems they patched that out to appease the ones that really want to jump and fire. Who knew that World War 2 could have been won sooner by running and jumping and firing at the same time!

They won't remove it for exactly the reasons you said - everyone does it. Imagine the shitstorm if they prevented you from firing during a jump.

The PS5 version of this, just the multiplayer aspect of it (not the single player or zombies or anything else) now consumes around 150 Gig of space 🙄 I've no idea how much space the other modes and options take up, but could be looking at just having a single console to play one game on it soon if they have their way.

 

The matchmaking in this is also bollocks. I'm at level 75 of something, I think its prestige something level, and I was pitched last night in a FFA game against someone that was 600 and another one at 1001. 

 

That someone is level 1001 is frightening to be honest (I think the levels reset down a bit on each season), to think they are probably sitting in a chair whilst someone feeds them Doritos and Mountain Dew constantly. 

 

As an older player - the stats in this just don't matter to me. It is interesting when talking to younger players (such as my best mates two boys that play this) that they put so much into these. They laugh at my 87 odd percent of wins overall, but I like to point out that I play FFA and winning can be quite rare, unlike other modes. 

 

I'll also quit a FFA match too if someone has 25 or over kills (out of 30) within the space of 4 minutes of the game starting, fuck it, there is absolutely no point in sticking around until the end. 

 

I also notice that the "block player" feature, although still there and present, does absolutely nothing whatsoever.

Thought I'd sorted my Elite 2 shoulder buttons but the left is playing up again and the paddle I use most.

Going to have to bite the bullet and get another soon as I keep killing myself with semtex instead of planting mines/radar, etc.

Oh man ! Glad I didn't bother with that insane download in the end.

 

What an absurd waste of time, bandwidth and electricity just to play a 4-5 hour shooter. I know i'm an old man and in the minority but this is so incredibly anti-consumer it's unbelivable. I feel sorry for anyone who bought this with limited internet/speed as you've basically been sold a 45gb menu screen. You can't even play the 'fully installed' multiplayer offline - I'd have been content running around shooting bots for an hour or so, but you only seem to have access to one map and no loadout options at all.

 

I've only just got fast internet - Virgin are the only provider in my area so for the last 10 years i've been on regular broadband - 160gb would have taken about 5 days on my old connection.

I mean, this isn't an exclusive thing to CoD / Acti. At this point were at almost 10 years of these practices from when the PS4 / XB1 came out. It's way past the point of the general public caring at all & is pretty much the norm these days. 

 

I dunno if you can do it on PS5, but on XB you can pre-ddownload digital games without buying them in anticipation of buying them later / getting the disk version and just playing it as soon as you pop the disk in.

Is it though? I have about 40 PS4/PS5 discs and they are all feature complete played from the disc, apart from any online modes. 

 

Modern Warfare 2019, Cyberpunk and this are the only exceptions I've come across where you can't actually play them before patching them. This is the only game where there seems to be 45gb of nothing on the disc, as I can't play anything but a bot match on the Moscow map.

 

I played through Quantum Break on the One X last week completely offline and finished it no problems. It wanted me to download a 77gb patch when I was back online, but seeing as id already finished it I just deleted it.

Didn't want to derail the campaign talk in the MWII thread so I'll put this here.

This is the ultimate problem with Call of Duty. You always end up with god ninja cunts. The guys on the opposite team were on my team the previous match and that wasn't a fun game neither. When you've got two dickheads dominating the game what's the point in playing?

 

It's part of the reason I'm reluctant to go on day one on these things. Aside from the cost (somewhat negated by the ARG/TURK codes) I have no idea how the matchmaking is going to work. Also the possibility they'll probably make Dead Silence/Ninja a perk instead of a power.
