Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III - 11/10/2023

Yes, another Call of Duty game, but I have to say, after playing the beta for this, it took me back to the good old days - great movement and weapon play. I can't say too much because the beta was very limited, but I liked what I saw.

You can also carry over everything you've unlocked and purchased from Modern Warfare II (yes, this includes weapon camos as well).

Anyone still interested in this series?

I dropped out of this series years ago. I always enjoyed the single-player campaign way more than the MP.
Might play some of the current-gen games if they come to Game Pass soon -- something I expect now that the Activision sale is finalized.

The beta was fun for a while because of the remastered old maps. Definitely brought me back to the good ol' days too. The game is just too repetitive for me now though. I may come back for next year's version by Treyarch, we'll see.

I pre-ordered to play with my son. It's definitely more of the same but having the best old maps back is a good idea. The beta was fine, if not chaotic. I'm getting too old for this shit and can't hang with the young, lock-on kids these days.

Any buzz on the single player campaign? I thought MW1 was horrible. Skipped 2, but was hoping this one might get me back to a franchise I used to love.

If by MW1 you mean the 2019 game - yeah, that campaign was only decent. MW2 (2022) is worth buying for the campaign alone - highly recommend it.

The campaign for III should be on par with II but since this is COD, who knows.

I probably should have put this in my original post but I don't start many new threads so I forgot:

is the 2022 game worth it? I was so disgusted with MW1. Took me 2 days to finish the single player campaign. And, it takes me months and months to finish games. This new iteration was so not memorable.

I really enjoyed MW2 2022 but it isn't super long either (like 8 to 10 hours)

I'm excited to dive back in - I have to stop playing MWII for the last few months because I was busy during most of my free time but after this week I'll be able to hop back in. I still enjoy it and in my random matches I can usually place in the top 3, which feels pretty good for a 47 year old

And I only care about multiplayer. The campaigns always have too much sneaking around and on-rails parts for me. And I never feel like I get to see enough weapons. They should drop everything you can unlock in the multiplayer into the single player at some point, just so you can try it out. I swear the enemies are always holding like the same three guns so you can pick one of those or what you start with.

All COD campaigns can be finished in 6-8 hours - that has never changed. Maybe people disagree, but I feel MW2 2022 is worth buying for the campaign alone. I didn't like the 2019 campaign at all.

For those interested - there will also be an open world zombie option in this game as well.

So that's different than normal Zombie mode? No longer Horde focused?

I think - all I know for now is that it's open world. Hopefully that means just jumping in and going/doing what you want.

I would love a version of Zombies where you don't have to worry about buying weapons or unlocking areas. I basically just want castle defense - pick your loadout and try to hold them off for as long as you can, If they've done that before, I never realized it because every time I try a Zombie mode it's about buying weapons and I hate that shit. And then I end up deleting the mode for space.

I wouldn't count that out though. You would think it would be as easy as creating like the standard multiplayer modes (where you just choose a loadout and go) but no, they usually have to incorporate something extra that doesn't feel fun at all.

Re: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III - 11/10/2023

After leaving the series in 2018 I picked up MW2 around release. Loved it and every second I have played it. Put over 600 hours into online and the DMZ mode is some of the most fun I've had in gaming in awhile. With that said it has been a time suck when I'm trying to get all the rewards and I don't really have time to play anything else so I'm sitting this one out. Looks good though.

I liked it, found it to be pretty fun. I had played the original MW2 and was cool to get an updated version. Campaign was short though, I think I beat in 6-7 hours.

They added Ash (yes, the evil dead Ash) as an operator as part of the Halloween event for MW2 - You will also be able to carry him over to MW3 and play with him there. Bruce himself voiced his character for the game as well just like Antony Starr did for Homelander (whose also in MW2).

I like both Homelander's and Ash's finishing moves (for those of you who don't know, if you sneak up an enemy player, you can now perform finishing moves on them some of which are customized for designated operators) as well.
