Well, Kevin Spacey is here to enslave us all I guess! Even if he isn’t, its a great move by the people behind the latest Call of Duty to add some star power to a series that is becoming very dull very quick. Let’s try and discover the moment CoD jumped the shark and started to just produce titles for the sake of producing titles.
The Modern Warfare series is the best written piece of entertainment since Star Wars and yes I am serious. Give me that over Game of Thrones, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and Zelda. Lots of people only by CoD for the multi-player, but the campaign modes in the three Modern Warfare games left the player at the edge of his seat. Black Ops was not bad but it was not the same. World at War introduced the Zombies mode and starred Kiefer Sutherland doing a character voice. After MW3, the series shifted and became less about the story and more about the essentially mini game “zombies” and the online multi-player. They knew they created an amazing franchise and knew everyone would buy it every single November no matter how ridiculous it got. Now, I do not know what this Advanced Warfare game is going to be like, but I’m very excited to see Frank Underwood in another protagonist setting (if your not on House of Cards I don’t know what you’ve been waiting for). Should be exciting but I still long for the days of Price and Soap trying to save the world. Here’s your weekly nerd post from yours truly.
sidenote: Soap’s death in MW3 is still the saddest fictional character death I’ve ever experienced. Dumbledore couldn’t even lick the gunpowder off Soap’s M9
