I can imagine the reviews for the next COD.

"I'm not sure which killstreak is more overpowered - the tactical nuke, or the maniac cat."
 
Treyarch's next CoD is gonna be 2015. They are alternating between three developers now. Sledgehammer games are making their first solo game this year and "focusing on next gen consoles". Wii U isn't apart of that.

The PS4 and One will be the lead consoles, but apparently it'll still be cross-gen compatible:

Hirshberg also assures fans worried about the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions that 2014’s Call of Duty “will also be a great current-gen game.” The publisher recognizes 2014 as a continuation of last year’s console transition. “There are still a lot of people playing on current gen,” says Hirshberg “and we want to deliver a great experience for them as well. But it will be a next-gen-first production and the current-gen game will be a version of that.”

I do have to wonder if we will get the next COD though. Ghost sales were terrible on Wii U. I would give us a 20% chance of getting it at this point.
To be fair, if the next CoD reverts entirely to run n' gun gameplay and close quarters combat, I don't plan on buying it. The continual effort to make series accessible to a larger audience has destroyed much of what I liked about the series to begin with.

This. The only reason why I even bothered to get Ghosts was because of you guys, and playing online. I have no regrets because I've become good friends with many of you, and we branch out into other games now.

It's not even like Activision is trying to keep us from giving up on the games. They release the Wii and Wii U versions stealthily, put them out to die, and then don't support them as well as they could with patches.
In the race for yearly releases, the Nintendo versions of their games have suffered the worst. Hopefully from here on, with the new development cycles, it stops being an issue.
Because right now, if the incoming patch isn't the second coming of Christ, then this community will pretty much sweep the game under the rug and focus on the incoming racers, and Smash Bros, not to mention Monster Hunter.

I honestly hope that one of the teams - either Sledgehammer, Infinity Ward, or Treyarch, I don't care which one - picks that play style and goes with it. Then leave the other two developers to stretch and make maps that aren't cramped CQC affairs full of camping and quick scoping.

Yep, for me, COD has some big-time competition from Monster Hunter now. Once you've rolled up a tail cut on a 30-foot tall dragon, it's kinda hard to go back to dealing with 12 year old trolls.

But Ghosts is legitimately good, so I'm going to give it some more play time.

I havent jumped in on Monster Hunter because I want to see if we are going to come back to Ghost once the patch releases. A_Trey_U says it should get the Wii U build pretty current, so it could be pretty good. We needed a break from it, but I think we will be ready for some COD action here. By biggest thing has been my loss of connection with the community. I miss hearing "whats up with you Goodtwin", or "what you drinking tonight mj". LOL Its funny to think about, cause I have never met you guys in person, but I do really enjoy playing games with you guys. Mario Kart 8 had better have voice chat.

I'm sure we're gonna give Ghosts another shot, regardless. It really is a very good shooter (for me, it's up there with COD4 and the original Black Ops). And if we can't get you on the MH train, we'll just go to where you are. :p

Don't worry, Goodtwin, we'll be playing Ghosts again after Treyarch stops pussyfooting around and gives us the goddamn patch.

Bump: Well that was frustrating... I see that nothing has changed for the better as of yet.

Sounds like I'll be waiting for the patch to arrive...when pigs fly at this point.
The pigs are lining up on the runway... :mad:)
For like 6-8 weeks now. If I was on that flight I would have done gotten a refund and got the heck out!

Yup, I would've been like:

^If that true then it needs to be bacon cooked in bacon grease, wrapped in apple wood bacon, covered in country ham, and topped with nice thick crips fatty bacon smothered all in bacon bits.

For the next COD, you should be able to call in food from the state fair as a point streak.

"Deep-fried Oreos inbound."

If we are adding more biologic killstreaks, I vote for a certain monster or two to replace the guard dog...
"Enemy Devil Jho inbound"
Oi...The more I think about it, the more I want a game that is a cross between CoD and MH...

X I think will fit the bill. It'll have weapons, big enemies, and of course online multiplayer.

True, though I do have my concerns about it. How will the RPG aspects affect the game? From what I saw in the trailer it seems like player/monster level will determine what you can actually fight.

Features/Changes
-Free Fall multiplayer map is now available and added to various playlists.


Stability
-Fixed an issue where the Squad Reports Screen would occasionally hang on a black screen.
-Fix for a rare bots crash.
-Improved operations functionality.

Additional Fixes

-Fix for broken operations – playing a ranked game will restore operations
-Fixed an issue where throwing a tactical grenade could cause the player to switch weapons
-Fixed a Lobby Migration issue that would force the Create a Soldier screen to close
-Fix to keep the Grenade Cook Timer from becoming difficult to see
-Fixed an inconsistency in the presentation of profile names when switching controllers
-Fixed an issue that could occur at the start of a Safeguard match where the friends list would become inaccessible

-Fix for sound issue when seeker explodes.

-Fixed unlimited weapon glitch in first contact.
-Various additional fixes
So nothing big on framerate optimization, aimbot/quickscoping, weapon balancing, or dedicated servers, but we can finally play on FreeFall.

(And that's all fine by me, tbh. If they dickered around with the weapons or aim assist, they could've screwed it up and not bothered to fix it.)

Now the real question: Is the update worth the wait? I have been waiting for so long that it had better be the best thing before the coming of Christ!

I wouldn't get my expectations up too high. This is a modest update that doesn't touch the weapons, aim assist, framerate or servers. It's cool to get a new map to play on, though. And perhaps you'll have some better luck now with your NAT set to open.

I just got home and am pretty tired unfortunately. I will be on tomorrow night around 8:30 est time to check it out. I will be interested to see how large this patch is, if its not that big, then we will know that Free for All was always on the disk, and they waited to unlock it for us.

They do make you go to the eShop to download Freefall, fwiw. Then you gotta back out and install the download (all of which shouldn't be necessary if it were on the disc...I think).
 
I can probably jump on tomorrow nightInteresting to see Freefall.
lol @ no dedicated servers. And this is our final patch isn't it?
edit: yup, gotta download the map from the eshop. It's free though and only 130 mb. Shocked that Activision didn't try and squeeze a few bucks out of it

Perhaps they think our money isn't worth shit to them.
 
^Maybe
Just tried Free Fall map. It's okay. VERY tight with lots of places to hide and blind side people. Every couple of minutes the floor falls down a bit, the screen shakes as it does so, aaaaaand nothing changes it. I looked up the map on CoD wikia, and it says with every fall it changes the terrain a bit or some sight lines change, but I didn't notice much. But of course, it could be because it was my first go with it and I don't know it very well yet. Time will tell.
Free fall? More like Free Fail.
..I'll see myself out.
 
So after two offline tries of Free Fall, I decided to jump online to test run the game, and the fucking thing freezes up on me forcing me to hard reset.
You guys can go back to Monster Hunter now.
