Opinion: Sci-fi Call of Duty?

Okay, now I’m not usually one to post on rumours, but this story really got my mind gears turning…

Gamespot has just published an article relating to Activision’s bizarre buying spree of names relating to a future-esque Modern Warfare.

The concept itself has merit, marines in space either shooting at aliens (or each other depending on the story), but most movie fans will tell you that this is usually a series ender, a last resort before the series dies out altogether… but I must say I would kill to see what a good team could pull out of an idea like that.  Just try and tell yourself you haven’t been dying for a StarCraft shooter…

Well that’s my opinion. This is a new section on the site that I have opened for stories to give opinions on… So now I want yours!

    This would kick ass!

    I like, but I don't like. I prefer guns that go bang bang bang, rather than the ones that go pew pew pew. I find it hard to take a game like cod seriously if it has laser guns in it. Last game I took seriously with laser guns was timesplitters, but they had a mix of both.

    Yeah I know what you mean but I would hope that they would take a “space marine” kinda aspect, that would mean real bullets, lasers are lame! What do you think, Aliens or a kinda man vs man kinda thing? I would rather the later..

  • PSIress

    the latter, be different.

  • Bagmup

    No…

    Battlefield tried this and failed.

  • worldsapart1

    i did not say my previous comment. i am though interested to see how this will play out.

    ps i heart josh

    You are thinking from a MP aspect ..and I agree about battlefield 2142, but I think COD has more of a tight level based SP so a good story could be really interesting and a chance for them to create a cool new world or style .. but yeah MP would need a lot of thought otherwise it would probably suck.

  • Bagmup

    Halo

  • PSIress

    my thought exactly, though halo ain't the best mp out there.

  • Snake

    If they did it with a great story line it might work. But like Baggy Said Battlefield tried this and failed. 2142 was good in concept with your Man v Man Josh as you would know, which was 100 time better than Halo but failed still the same.
    I think if this is true we may finally see the death this Series, which if MW2 is anything to go by will be a welcomed one.

  • DoGM3At

    yeah as I said in the post i think it would be a series killer .. but yeah it may just be the SP person in my that wants it.

    …I just cant see a good MP in it at ALL lol

  • Snake

    I lost all faith in the COD franchise because of MW2. I only that the Black Ops game restores my faith

  • DoGM3At

    I'm hoping for that great Cod5 Dark tone, that really worked for me.. and that teaser gives me a lot of hope for it. oh, and its nam.. that is awesome too

  • Bagmup

    That was my point.

  • DoGM3At

    sorry, I was just agreeing :)

  • QuesterX

    Man tht would be pretty AWESOME

  • QuesterX

    Just because it has been tried and has failed doesn't mean that the idea has no merit, only that the execution was carp.

    Halo is a different style completely to CoD and i think that a gritty space based shooter would be awesome.

  • QuesterX

    you didnt like mod clod 2? Man i love that game.
