Call of Duty: Ghosts Xbox 360 & PS3 versions hacked before launch

Call of Duty: Ghosts current-gen versions hacked before launch

This is why a host based system is pointless, its too easy for a host system to get an advantage. I wouldn't play this on PS3 or Xbox 360 now.

Also, this video emphasizes that Ghosts is not powered by a new game engine. If the hack was based off a Modern Warfare 2 hack, then parts of the game code is the same as a game from 2009. Everyone is basically buying the exact same game every year with new maps.

Did you see that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was just announced?

 

j/k. XD

 

I'm not impressed with this game. It looks very similar to how Black Ops 2 looks.. I'm not seeing any major improvements graphically considering this will be a next gen title.. and the few parts of map destruction they showed is nothing compared to BF3's current engine. The squads feature sounds interesting in terms of making your own AI squad, but other than that its still 6 vs. 6.. so whats the point of squads in a match when it will still basically be team vs. team? With killstreaks in the game, everyone will play every game mode as if it is TDM. Everyone will be a Rambo and there will be no real teamwork. I'll pass on this game for multiplayer. I'll be sticking with Battlefield 4 and Star Wars Battlefront.

I remember at one point reading that all games on Xbox One would require dedicated servers.. but with how MS has been about changing their minds I doubt dedicated servers will be required for COD Ghosts.. which is probably why MS is pleased with it's system's matchmaking system. I'd rather play on dedicated servers and choose what maps and matches I actually want to play in.

I love COD's match making system prior to BOII. That was the worst ever with the wigging out on team selection. You're friends are always on your team, and maps are picked fast. I don't mind the map selection being out of my hands as long as all the maps are good. When they introduced voting though, that pissed me off... I they didn't let you vote for the previous map, I'd be cool with it... but damn I got sick of Hijacked really fast.

Hijacked was fun for the first couple weeks.. then it was the only map ever voted for. So damn annoying. I think everyone voted for it because of the quick kill/death ratio because of how small the map is. Thats all anyone's concern in that game is.. k/d ratio and getting kill streaks. Playing Demolition was pointless in Black Ops 2 because nobody would even try to arm or disarm a bomb.. there would be the occasional split screeners that would actually work together and have one person go in while the other cover them, but other than that, everyone would just play like its TDM so they don't screw up their streak by getting killed while disarming a bomb.. I gave up playing most of the game modes in black ops 2 because it almost never mattered what team won or lost because the majority of players don't care for the objectives.

Hijacked became fun when me and my whole team hid in the underside of the boat with shotguns, shock charges, MM scanners, and trophy systems. XD Now that was fun. I also liked hiding on the top floor with 2 shock charges a trophy and guardian on my score streak. I'd piss so many people off when I had scavenger too and keep getting more shock charges. Opponents would make it their personal vendetta to get me. I had AGR as my final streak and unleash it.

 

Your right though. Demo use to be my favorite game and they ruined it. I played TDM and 3 way on BOII.

I can see how that would work out because those 2 locations are the only spots on that map where people won't spawn at. I remember spawning, start walking, then an enemy would spawn directly in front of me. The reason the spawning is so screwed on that map is because there only needs to be one enemy on that little ledge overlooking that area for enemies to spawn in that same location. So as soon as I killed that guy, I look up and theres the guy trying to kill everyone thats spawning. I kill him and in those brief few seconds of me doing that, the first person I killed has already re-spawned right behind me and killed me as soon as I finish off the other guy. Almost nobody would go below deck when I played that map. I always used it as a short cut to get to the other staircase. Theres quite a few maps that could possibly re-invigorate the game for me if I could ever get in them.. and feel like playing TDM. :rolleyes:

Yeah if you have 4-5 friends, and hold down the bottom of the boat, the other team gets so confused, because they all use the same tactics... eventually after camping in their usual spots they get bored and figure it out. Then rage ensues because they cant get to us through all the shotguns and rockets.. trophy takes care of nades, we all rock tac mask too for flashbangs XD. Since everyone votes for the map twice, at the start of the next round the other team would try to rush down there before we got there, but to no avail. XD XD XD

In typical IW 2.0 fashion. Assault Rifles suck, Shotguns can blast across the map and kill you. Yeah... no thanks. Everyone is going to be using an SMG or shotgun. At least BOII brought some respect back to the Assault Rifles with the FAL, SMR, and the M27.

These videos emphasize the fact that there is no actual teamwork involved in this game. CoD is all about spawning, kill people in a 1 minute time frame before you die and then spawn and repeat. I'd rather play long BF3 Conquest matches or even BF3 TDM than 3-5 minute CoD K/D runs. I remember the longest BF3 match I ever had.. It was about an hour and a half playing Rush on max tickets. F*cking EPIC. :D

 

BOII assault rifles seemed better than shotguns to me, at least when I was using shotguns. I like how that first video shows the guy getting shot thru a truck. I see they really improved hit accuracy.. :rolleyes:

I played Conquest on Gulf of Omen 300% Tickets. It was a 2 and a half hour match. I think I went 85-62, ranked up 3 times in my 30s, and got like 190k XP on double XP weekend X'D

Conquest is the way to go on big ticket games for double XP weekend. I got a lot of tank unlocks on that round too.

Thats awesome. I've had some hour+ long conquest matches before, but I don't think I've hit that 2 hour mark before. It must have been intense. :D That 3rd seat tank unlock is a really good upgrade. So many people don't have it or use it, that you can easily jump in almost any tank and hitch a ride while getting laser designations. I loved getting vehicle unlocks.. it was one of the vices of the game for me.. once I got all vehicle unlocks I lost some interest in the game.. Probably because I played it constantly and needed a break. Over 100 hours will do that. XD

Yeah I think I have more flag cap medals and ribbons than anything else because of those 300% ticket conquest matches. We were doing it to get that one assignment where you had to get 2 hours on Omen and 2 hours on that other map.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Squads Trailer
 



 
Squads introduces a whole new level of competition to Call of Duty: Ghosts. Combining the unrivaled Multiplayer experience with cutting edge AI, Squads lets you play a variety of new game modes with your customized squad-mates. Play solo against another player and their squad, or cooperatively with friends, competing versus an AI-controlled squad. Best of all, the XP earned in Squads is directly connected to your Multiplayer progress!

 

Making your own custom bots that people can battle against while you are offline seems interesting but unless it allows custom map rotations, why would anyone want to play squad battles when they could just play multiplayer instead? Also, squad vs. squad sounds like it would be a regular multiplayer match considering no AI would be involved in that.

Meh, I really want COD to be good again, and its hard to let go seeing as how much fun I've had in the past, but I really have to pass on this one. IW 2.0 is content on helping the less skilled player level up free of charge. In fact they've added so many ranks,you blow through them so fast that it isn't special anymore, and in fact you feel cheated if you don't rank up twice in a play session. I remember in MW1, once you hit the 30s it was a long stretch between each rank until 40, and then it would take you as long as it took to get form 35-50, to get from 50 to 55. In fact it was so brutally long, I never prestiged in MW1. :P

Props to them for finally getting rid of Deathsteaks, but gaining xp without playing just doesn't do it for me.

I'd like to see someone make a squad, log off for a month, have other teams squad play against it constantly and the next time they log in, they'll prestige without getting a single kill. :P

Thats going to happen. There will be some exploit, or a large group that will boost for each other like crazy. Its just asking for boostmania. People wont have to rely on tact inserting in a room and head shooting each other anymore. lol

Geez, for a game that still looks current gen, thats a lot of damn space and resources to pull... May explain why it might only be in 720p on X1. 40 gigs of space?

Just look at what BF3 required:

http://bf3blog.com/battlefield-3-system-requirements/

 

Heck even BF4 requires less, and its on a much more massive scale

The one thing COD has going for it over BF is the fact they use steam. Origin is such crap.

 

I was talking to my brother about the size issue earlier. It got us thinking about how long it will be before the new systems start coming out in larger hard drive variations. If the average game is going to take up around 40-50gb, then we'll only have about 10 games installed at a time on a 500gb hard drive.. less than that once large DLC and patches are released like in BF3.

Yeah BF3 ate up my 20 gig drive by the time the vehicle maps hit on permium. I think this is why both systems are working on cloud gaming as the future. Otherwise, by next gen the consoles will start out with 30tb harddrives and then 500tb, then 30 of whatever will be after terabites. Discs can only hold so much, and there will be a lot of downloading additional assets this gen I believe, thus why outside of what I preordered off my trade in credit, I'll be using the PSN store to digitally download the rest of my games when possible, pending the ability to preorder titles... and I do hope they have preloading as well.

I don't know if you know this or not, but even without a PS3, you can still sign into your Playstation account online and pre-order digital PS4 games right now:

 

https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/

 

Sony integrated the PSN store into their SEN site a while back. I can log into it, buy a digital game, turn on my PS3 when I get home and start downloading.

Oh shit.. I just realized if I left my PS3 on, I can tell it to download right through the website. I did not know that. I guess the only thing the site can't do is remotely turn on my PS3.

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
