A demographic that probably has no idea of his past.
His past isn't a clean slate but when you're marketing guns & war to the masses - in videogames or otherwise - does it need to be?
Just sayin'. Don't want any humanitarian selling me on why warfare or future weapons are something I should be excited about. I want a guy who's been through some stuff himself and knows war, regardless of what he's done with his life.
On one hand I could call this game nothing more than a publisher's search for more money.
On the other hand I've played and beaten Call of Duty 1, it's expansion pack, CoD 2, CoD 3, Modern Warfare, World at War, Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3, and I've purchased all of them except part 3 and World at War. And I bought add-on content for a couple of 'em.
So when Black Ops 2 comes out this November, I could talk about having good taste, but I know I'll get it. Launch day. At midnight.
Ive only bought COD2, MW1 and MW2.
MW2 was enough to make it clear I was no longer interested in the series.. traded it pretty quick. This is coming from someone who hates trading games in to..
Have only bought 2 & Black Ops, traded Black Ops. It's a rental series for me.
Helps that it's the only series everyone I know who plays games buys, so always end up playing them somehow, even when it feels completely unneeded. It's ubiquitous. (Feel like this was changing up with MW3, even the people who only play CoD & NCAA were switching up to Battlefield.)
Surely he's quite fitting?
Grand Theft Auto: COD. Your character can now deal in drugs and weaponry to guerrila armies. In order to remove your wanted level, get a pardon from the president.
Sure this thing pissed UbiSoft off. They put years into making a futuristic military shooter and half a month before release CoD is announced in a future setting.
Probably EA also, assuming the next Battlefield's Sci-Fi. I'm psyched for the move away from modern military. It's every bit as played out as the WWII shooter now.
I'd love Infinity Ward to do a proper futuristic game. Not just a near future one but a distant post apocalypse future with weapons that fire purple lasers.
I'd like one so far in the future all life has been wiped out and all that is left is microorganism that shoot ultra micro germ things.
Trent Reznor is composing the soundtrack to this? Well thats my interest peaked.
They're saying and doing all the right things. Activision can sell a game well when they set their mind and wallet to it.
Trent Reznor? Seriously? His last two film scores were terrible, the abysmal Dragon Tattoo especially. Atticus Ross was far better off without him when working on films. I guess the bar isn't set that high for Treyarch scores considering the last two though. Hopefully he'll prove me wrong, but I think Brian Tyler would have been perfect for this, his score for MW3 was excellent, although perhaps they wouldn't want him after having worked on the Infinity Ward side of the series.
Edit: Apparently Reznor is only composing the theme song, Jack Wall is doing the rest. That's a little better, but I've still never loved Jack Wall's music. The best score of the Mass Effect series was ME3's, the only one he didn't work on.
MW2 had the best soundtrack in the series so far. I particularly liked the tracks used in the Infamy trailer and during the death of Ghost and Roach.
MW2's music is definitely the most fun to listen to. I really like the mission briefing music, for example:
I think they did a really good job on those briefing cutscenes. They felt really authentic and intense in a Hollywood sort of way. I much prefer them to the MW3 briefing scenes.
Say what you will about CoD... that 60 fps. Could be worse - some slow console shooter could be taken as the standard. /overly optimistic
Just different enough it's my third most wanted shooter... in November.

Isn't that the point? A throwback to the previous games.
