Idk man. Aesthetically, BO3 multiplayer is gross at this point. Just mish mash of ugly colorways, outfits, weapons, and maps. It plays really well but it's not a good or cohesive looking game at all. Garish. Reminds me of the terrible skins from the last few Gears of War games.
Black Ops 3, victory emotes come from supply drops.
They have you typical dance/celebration stuff, character related stuff and a bunch of meme shit(Shia's just do it, that silly dance that was edited with lightsabers, etc).
Call of Duty is still making money despite being in "decline." Once they can no longer pump money out of that well, you can be damn sure they'll do a "remaster" of CoD4 to buy in on the nostalgia of people.
Speaking of which: The PC version still has some players, going by Gametrackers. But a lot of the servers I see are modified to where you're gonna be going into something like Shipment 32 players a la console. :/
Are you really struggling to understand how features of EAAccess and how they apply to all the titles from the publisher that owns and operates that service are not comparable to cross platform marketing deals and their influence on value added content across comforting platforms? They are not remotely the same thing from a business perspective.
only thing that kept it from great was the skill based matchmaking, which pretty much punished good players like myself with pitting me against other good players 24/7. It's not something I want when I'm not trying to play ranked games.
My Top 5 COD games, in my opinion and in no order, are:
Call of Duty 2
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty: World at War
Call of Duty: Black Ops II
Call of Duty: Black Ops III
The worst are
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Black Ops III is a very refreshing take on what Advanced Warfare tried, while keeping things grounded and focusing on gunplay rather than gimmicks first. Yes, shit is very colorful and there are gimmick weapons like a baseball bat, but they don't take away from the core Call of Duty gameplay which has been missing for quite sometime in the series.
Majority of that 15 million cannot appreciate any other game from what I see. Bring games like Bloodborne, Sunset Overdrive, & The Witcher to them. They will look at you like u have jelly on your head.
