    whew boys, they had once more chance and they blew it quite possibly the hardest they could

    official cod channel 'multiplayer reveal', sure doesn't look like multiplayer to me, the graphics seem pretty good as well

    actual multiplayer footage, female soldiers yelling everywhere, censored swastikas, kar98k with magazine, reflex sights, fully automatic c96 mauser?? the bridge building shit, garbage graphics, how they could possibly think this is okay blows my mind

    imo calling that first video a multiplayer reveal should be considered false advertising and illegal, i'm tired of companies pulling that garbage

    you care too much about a video game who's one goal is to be entertaining and not always 100% accurate. swastikas have had to be censored since [email protected] germany got butthurt.

    from what ive watched, the people who've played it have enjoyed it a lot more than the last iterations of the game, so you appear to be in the minority on this one.

  4. It's Call of Duty so I don't know what you expected in the first place. If you want accuracy you should look towards Red Orchestra or Day of Infamy. That being said, It doesn't excuse the fact that you just disregard history like that for the sake of gaining some good boy diversity points but whatever.
    • Agree Agree x 3
  5. Sledgehammer's reasoning is that they want represent diversity and they want people to be able to identify with their playermodel. I don't know why a black woman would identify with a Nazi soldier, but I suppose options for everyone is a good thing.

    those running animations look so bad
  7. In all seriousness, It doesn't really bother me considering Call of Duty's last few iterations weren't historically accurate by any means and If I can recall correctly one of the devs said they weren't aiming for historical accuracy but just trying to provide some good vidya moments or something around that.

    It's just funny to poke fun at considering some of the genuine "Afrocentric" groups who do believe the whole "we wuz kangz"/"we wuz dem romans n sheit" argument seriously will most likely use this to prove their point or as propaganda.

    it's not about it being 'realistic' for me

    you can tell this is sledgehammer because the sound, animations, gun models and map design/mechanics are straight from the last 3 cod's - very fake and sloppy. think of it like battlefield's FP animations but made from a kid with a nerf gun holding an iphone. the sounds are also really badly done, too

    i've been talking to other (what you could call 'hardcore' cod fans) and even they agree this is just a cop out to compete with BF1. they even butchered create-a-class for some kind of specialists system.

    nada. this is bad, realism or lack of swastikas is far from the issue here.

    IW outsold BF1 and everyone hated IW. they said the same things about IW that you're saying now, but now you're in the minority because more people are liking this game. it's still gonna outsell every game and people are gonna enjoy it lol

    you seem pretty hardstuck on your opinion tho, and im not trying to persuade you otherwise, but everything im reading/seeing points towards this being one of the best CoD games in a long time.

    There's people who will buy CoD just because of the brand name and it usually tends to be casual gamers that likely don't do a lot of research, sales don't make a game good automatically, look at No Man's Sky. This game could be great for all I know and if people enjoy it, more power to them. I'm just saying personally, I don't think it looks good at all and if they had taken a different direction I would have highly considered actually purchasing it. Regardless of whether the game is good or not, having female soldiers in a a game that's even based on WWII without being an alternate history kind of thing is just seen as disrespectful for a lot of people.

    what makes this not an alternate history?

    That's the only thing you took out of my post? Wow. I don't believe they've ever stated it's alternate history. I think at one point they said they were trying to make the game realistic. Along with the fact it's called Call of Duty: World War 2, I find it hard to believe it'd be alternate history with that title.

    it's not the only thing i took from your post. i'm only challenging the points where you can be putting a subjective reasoning on something that is an objective truth. i haven't read anything about it being alternate history, nor have i read anything on it being 100% realistic. they've already put a lot of technologies into the game that weren't there before, which makes me believe it is more so an alternate reality than an alternate history. wouldn't that be fair to assume?

    and to clarify: i never said IW was good. i'm saying it sold like crazy and ww2 will sell like crazy despite people being upset with apparent mechanics and realism. everyone who has played it so far love it, and that's just multiplayer afaik. this is the exact same backlash IW got but you're the other side of the fence.

    I think it looks fun and that's what CoD tries to be, I like the light gore

    I'm sorry, but it's Call of Duty. Why do people still play this? It's gonna be the same shit as the last one without jump jets.

  18. It's a real tragedy that across all WWII media, you're only shown the Western/Eastern Fronts. And even then they're not even the full scope, just the stereotypical D-Day, and Battle of Stalingrad. It'll usually entail the following:
    1. allies (lol actually america hehexd) comes to save the day and liberate france oorah
    2. oh wait we're being btfo by the evil nazis!! but its ok because we're AMERICA we'll win eitherways boom boom
    3. haha take that nazi scum
    4. time to storm the capital somehow even though at this time we weren't even remotely in proper german territory
    5. oorah we got em boys!! grrrrrrrrt tear down that na- wait a minute thats not a flag resembling national socialism its just a fucking iron cross but its okay though TEAR EM DOWN GRR
    6. we somehow control berlin

    1. hahaha dumb russians take this
    2. oh wait we're being btfo
    3. wait a minute we're not even playing as nazi germany because modern germany is the biggest pussy in europe next to france and sweden
    4. hahaha take that you germans!!! ahh nuuu cheeki breeki xdDDD unfunny russian D4nk Meme$
    5. we're crushing those "capitalists" aaahhhhh communism world wide
    6. now we're somehow in berlin
    7. we took down the flag this means we win and communism will reign world wide

    There are countless areas to be explored that haven't been because nobody wants to experience something that isn't classic Hollywood bullshit. What of the Second Italo-Ethiopian War? Invasion of Yugoslavia? North African Campaign? Operation Weserubung? I can go on and on.
    In that case, you're justified to include Africans/Arabians in the German military as the Free Arabian Legion was a very real thing, holding about 20,000+ members spanning across North Africa to the Middle East. Not to mention the Ethiopian volunteers who assisted the Italians.
