Releases: Week of November 5th – Ghosts

Sorry guys, but after playing games for 25 hours straight, I just don’t have it in me to do all of the work that goes into the weekly release list. That said, there is one major game and a few smaller games coming out, so I’ll cut to the chase.. ~Don P.

A week after Battlefield 4, Activisions yearly offering, Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS3, PC, Wii U, and Xbox 360), is ready to be released upon the masses. Lately, it seems I have enjoyed Treyarchs iterations more than the Infinity Ward works, so I’m not sure how excited I should be this year. Of course, I don’t play the single-player portion in these games so I’m only judging the multiplayer. Black Ops 2 had a great multiplayer component, so Infinity Ward is going to have to step things up to hook me this year. But I’m sure you’ll hear a lot more from me on Ghosts in future On the Front Lines pieces.

    When did video games become so similar to TV? Are the COD releases just filling a desire for episodic content? Watching/playing this seasons’ maps and characters knowing that you’ll buy again next year? Seems like FPS and Sports games have embraced this model, and the consumer doesn’t seem to have a problem with this…..

      Battlefield 3 was the first shooter to properly handle skipping a year by filling that year with large expansions, and sometimes even new guns.

      I don’t mind a new COD each year, really. I don’t play the campaigns, I just play multiplayer. And seeing how they tweak the progression system, how you modify loadouts, and of course, new maps, are all something I look forward to every fall. :)

        I wouldn’t say EA properly handled it. I mean they still released Medal of Honor: Warfighter the year after BF3 to compete with Call of Duty, while still milking their customers for BF3 content.

        Side note: I don’t know how you don’t play the campaigns in CoD, they are some of the best FPS campaigns going, particularly the Black Ops campaigns, which rival Bad Company 2’s campaign for me.

          Much like the Star Wars movies, I don’t like the constant shifting from people to people, areas to areas. It’s a personal preference thing. To me, it makes it feel more disjointed.
