Call of Duty: Ghosts goes to space

Laika

May people have been wondering just when Call of Duty – which started out with World War 2, then jumped to modern times and later still to a near future – would jump the shark entirely and go to space. According to the official Call of Duty: Ghosts single player trailer, a little earlier than expected. Here’s that trailer, showing soldiers floating about in space. And yes, firing rifles in a zero-gravity environment.

It’s actually pretty laughable – but I don’t care. I have a soft spot for Call of Duty’s ridiculously over-the-top popcorn entertainment single player campaigns. Suspension of disbelief? I be having it.

 Call of Duty: Ghosts launches on November 5 for PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360. It will also be a launch title for PS4 on November 15 and on Xbox One when it launches in the US on November 22.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
  • Admiral Chief of Rivia

    I just had a thought:

    Each one of the Lazygamer staff should write an article on the place they write their article, their “workspace” as it were. With some lekker pictawrs?

    Who’s with me?

    • John on trial

      Seconded

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Yes!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Do you really want to see what’s lurking in the BrendaCave?

    • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

      No. :)

      • Admiral Chief of Rivia

        :P

  • Admiral Chief of Rivia

    Dog attacking chopper pilot????

    WHAT IS HAPPENING??? When did CoD become cool?

    If you are reading this, you can quote me on it later. I will be keen to jam this game.

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Agreed. Looks like the proper story telling element of the game is back like with the first MW

      • John on trial

        We hope, that would be great

      • Hammersteyn

        Proper story yes, but if it’s less than seven hours long then nope.

        • Admiral Chief of Rivia

          Yar, I’m now on hour 7 of witcher, barely scratched the surface. SOOO entertaining

          • John on trial

            I need to try that next

    • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

      You are dead to me…

      • Admiral Chief of Rivia

        And you have no soul ginger-pubes :P

        • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

          Le Sigh, if you can’t come up with something I haven’t heard over the past 20 years you are DOUBLE BESTIST dead to me!

          • Mossel

            Double Bestist?! Thats the worst kind.

    • Mark Treloar

      No. Gunfire in space? Also did anyone else see the Battlefield moments of Sinking Aircraft carriers and planes rolling across decks?

      • Admiral Chief of Rivia

        Yar, that was also epic

        • Mark Treloar

          Um no

      • HvR

        Gun fire is space with modern day ammunition is very possible.

        The propellant in bullets contain an oxidizer since the bullets are completely sealed to maximize effectiveness and make them waterproof.

        • Mark Treloar

          However gas escaping from the barrel will act as a propellant pushing you out into space. That aside last time I heard you cant hear gunfire in space.

          • HvR

            only slightly due the human body’s mass being so much greater than the bullet, easily counter acted by bracing against a structure or the EVA suits.

            I always look past the “sound in space” problem in movies and games, this is where going against realism ads to the experience. If you follow the same rules in Star Trek and Star Wars you end up with a silent Charlie Chaplin movie in space.

          • Mark Treloar

            Which would greatly improve the last Star Trek

  • Admiral Chief of Rivia

    How do you think the goggles worn at 2:21 work?

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    Woah. it looks like CoD may actually have a good story line again. They have my attention now

  • Mossel

    Just waiting for my next so-called sallary, then I’m pre ordering this.

  • TiMsTeR1033

    I really like the idea of them being in space.

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      Are you prepared for the day grasshopper?

      • John on trial

        Haha.

        • Admiral Chief of Rivia

          Are you ready as well?

          • John on trial

            I’ve prepped myself and I’m being very good. Sir, yes, sir.

          • SaintsRowLee

            I’ve got a challenge for you guys today, and yes, that includes you as well @Admiral_Chief:disqus.
            Let’s try today to keep the comments on topic, or at least aim for a 75% rate.
            Really. Wading through 300 comments to find ten that is relevant is a bit off putting.

          • John on trial

            I don’t think that’s possible. This isn’t just a gathering of game comments, it’s a gathering of fellow gaming brothers and sisters.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Agreed

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I cant agree with you more, I mean look at us.

          • SaintsRowLee

            I get that, and I am not suggesting you guys do not have your fun. But go look at some of the posts of yesterday. 10 Comments were about the article in question. 290 was about agriculture magazines. A newcomer to all that might not feel so keen to join in the conversation, you know?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Did you have a chuckle about it at least?

            All work and no play makes no sense

          • John on trial

            I particularly enjoyed the animal magazine talk.

          • SaintsRowLee

            In all honesty I found it a bit annoying after post 5.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Why did you continue reading then? I think if you feel irritated about the jokes, anything posted, even funny things, will annoy you.

            Did you know that if you click on the minus button against a user’s post, it will hide that sub-thread, so maybe it will make it easier for you to read “on-topic” comments?

            Just trying to help you here, I can’t make you think things are funny/entertaining if its not your cup of tea.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            I do actually agree with you. I too quite go off topic..almost all the time, but I do often wonder if this causes the barrier of entry for new comers to become to hard to enter. We all know each other and sometimes forget this is a public forum about games that people that are not regulars would like to comment too. I think you raise a good point and should be taken into consideration

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Remember, LG makes most of its money from hits. Most of us start a thread by commenting on a game which opens the door for others to come in and comment on that.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            They make their money from hits? So basically your saying from us commenting we get them cash?

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            True, but often we end up in a direction that is nowhere near what the article is about. So it is quite intimidating for newcomers. It’s not that we have to be strict and stay on topic all the time, but it is nice for new comers to come to the site and comment about the game as opposed to wondering why Rince is talking shit about my mum

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Gosh that’s tempting, but in the spirit of today I’ll leave it be lol

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Good man…But I understand why we go off topic too….It all is sooo very tempting :P

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I was very intimidated when first coming here, but soon I saw that people on lazygamer just joke around alot it makes our days better and to be honest we really good friends.

          • John on trial

            Same here.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            True, I was exactly the same. Which is why I said we don’t have to be so strict. It’s just a consideration afterall. I just want everyone to get to know each other freely and that the community grows as there are a ton of awesome people here, besides Rince

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            And Foxhound?

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            don’t know why it came out as Guest, was supposed to be your name trolol

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Don’t forget to meet us at the BRASS BELL on the 5th, THE BRASS BELL…

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I wish I could join you guys.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Same here dude :)

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Ironic thing is all my family are in Cape town.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Then come on down . would love to meet the famous Tanya :P

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            (in)famous

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Perhaps in December man.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            :) hopefully :)

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            (s)he must bring sammiches

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            LOL hey! don’t make fun of her!

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Until (s)he passes the trials, mocking is the way

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            So you guys meeting in Kalk?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Holy crap, I know that place!!!!

          • John on trial

            Brass bell? Don’t think I’ve heard of it before.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Ate there while on honeymoon, awesome place

          • John on trial

            In Kalk Bay? Google search is bringing up three results.

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Hehe. I was implying that @umarbastra:disqus must go to the Brass Bell (which is in Kalk Bay in Cape Town) while the rest of us meet up at Banana Jam because he was trolling me ;)

          • John on trial

            Sorry. I half-read the above because I was staring at the GTA map on another open tab. Okay. It’s on the calender. Banana Jam.

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Will also ask Gavin to put something up on LG to let people know

          • John on trial

            Excellent. I’m in

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            You bastard!!!!!
            ……good one….damn you

          • Mossel

            Brass Bell!? Goddammit! I love that place! Wish I couldve made it.

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            You mom is awesome! Don’t say anything bad about her! I also think that by seeing the banter people who are new can see we are a community that is light-hearted, and NOT like most other sites. If our talk was only games, many wouldn’t see what separates LG from NaG

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Hmm, that is very true as well. good point, well in any case, we all just want the community to grow :) everyone makes fair points though

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            So as a community, when seeing a new guy/gal comment, respond to him/her!

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            True, and that is a very active thing we can do, make em feel welcomed

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            I always try to respond when I don’t know the person

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            I was thinking, have you ever been to Siliconera website?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Nay. Do tell?

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Well they have a thread called well, Open Thread lol its just a thread where you comment about anything you want . It’s a place where newcomers and community members can come and get to know each other better and talk about anything and everything

            Was thinking we should have something like that too

          • TiMsTeR1033

            You see here at lazy gamer were family.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            And as someone that enjoys the site, I would like to see the family grow :)

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            It is ON topic, since we are all chatting as brothers and sisters of Lagz.

            Do you only talk about ONE thing with your friends?

            Just putting that out there

          • SaintsRowLee

            No, I do not. Look, I care about LG as much as you guys, and I do not want it (the comments section) to become like the News24 comments section that mostly gets ignored because of the amount of off topic banter going on.

          • John on trial

            Must resist the urge to call you an agent….
            News24 comments section holds a special place in hell. We’re all friends here, no hard feelings.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            I think the N24 comments section is ignored because its filled with racism, hate speech, insults, bile, vitriol, idiots, and other useless facts.

            The comments here are fun, witty, distracting, and generally entertaining. A break from reality as it were.

            I get your point, I really do, but you cannot compare Lagz to N24, not even close.

          • SaintsRowLee

            I am not comparing. Just saying I do not want it to end up like News24.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            I think we are quite safe. One racist/hate-filled/insulting comment and the whole community is against it. We band of brothers/sisters

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I get what you’re saying. Personally I stop paying much attention once the comments go over the 100 mark or once the article is a bit older, unless I’m actively involved or someone has replied to one of my ramblings. Find the most on-topic stuff is said early.

            That said while there is off-topic stuff (sometimes a lot I’ll grant you) it’s rarely in poor spirit & I’d be more sad to see it go because for me it makes the site seem more alive & welcoming.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Yeah, if you join the “banter” late, its hard to jump in.

            Unless you are trolling Brenda, then its NEVER too late

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Nintendo WiiU Sucks what?!

          • John on trial

            Awww shite.

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            You know it! Just putting this out there before I speak to Gavin everyone (including @disqus_VdBwRw3zyE:disqus this is a forum for game speak AND fun after all, it’s not 4Chan) We are thinking of meeting on the 5th of October at Banana Jam (Edit: in Cape Town) at the same time the LG team are meeting up in JHB. Just keep the idea in your heads while I finalize details.

          • John on trial

            Awesome. JHB is a bit far for me, but I’ll see what I can do.

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            I mean, we are having a meet up in Cape Town at the same time they are in JHB…

          • John on trial

            Oh. Great. Count me in.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Aren’t you glad the stipulation was about not trolling consoles? ;)

          • John on trial

            Very

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Shweet

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Oh, you didn’t get the tweet SONY fanboy, you’re not invited :P

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            XD

          • John on trial

            Aren’t we all equal? This is what I was taught by Master Rince and Admiral Chief.

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            We are all equal, just like when we play CoD.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            No, PC is superior, but we don’t brag about it, is not gentlemanly

          • John on trial

            Haha. Okay. I will neither agree or disagree at this juncture.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Since you laugh, that means you agree?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I will keep it in my head & fantasize like mad about it. Er… that last bit wasn’t supposed to come out.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Hello Rince, how you doing man?

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Good good. I’m looking forward to staying off the topic of each article jut to see how far I can push @disqus_VdBwRw3zyE:disqus ;)

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Hows life? Had coffee?

          • SaintsRowLee

            Oh, my dear sir. I have been working in tech support for 10 years now, and I have seen pushing like you would not believe. So please, feel free to give it your best. I am curious to see what you can come up with…

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Tech support for 10 years, man, brave dude! I’ve gracefully moved on past that, but still have to do the odd one here or there (11 years in IT now, man I feel old…)

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Have you tried turning it off and on again? ;) http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m59co7aJl31rpbxguo1_500.gif

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            LOL most tech support issues resolve themselves if you give the end user time to think about their sins…

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Can we complain about our icons on our desktop being rearranged?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            I HATE it when someone refers to their desktop background as their “screensaver”

            RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Or memory when referring to hard drive space. It’s the small things that irritate me lol

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Agreed

          • TiMsTeR1033

            May I ask what is his challenge?

          • John on trial

            I’m not allowed to troll console gamers. Or say anything about the master race.
            Frankly, I can’t even remember what this master race is…

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            borderline…..

          • John on trial

            Really? Okay, okay. My bad. You’re a strict Admiral.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I thought about this last night, and my spelling really needs some work among other things. So I had an awakening within my soul, that I shall learn from this experience and grow from it.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Attaboy(girl)

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I really do love how witty you are.

          • John on trial

            Don’t get your head stuck now, Tim.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I actually think he has a talent for being quick and witty with his comments, I’m not insulting him in anyway.

          • John on trial

            I actually thought about it on the way home yesterday (it’s a long drive), and I too have come to realize that I need to be more accepting of others. Who needs a shrink when you have LG?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            ;)

      • TiMsTeR1033

        Indeed I am, and will be fully equipped to deal with the challenge.

    • John on trial

      It makes zero sense realistically, but it’s pretty cool.

  • Hammersteyn

    BEST HEADER EVER!

  • No Longer SIR Twakkus

    Well the trailer looks cool but one thing I have learned is to never base a game on a trailer. I will patiently wait for the LG review and then decide on buying.

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      At least the trailer is not all CGI

      • TiMsTeR1033

        Its in game isn’t it?

        • Admiral Chief of Rivia

          Aye

      • No Longer SIR Twakkus

        Definitely a step in the right direction but I am still not sold. With the right video editing skills you can even make Zuma look good.

        • Admiral Chief of Rivia

          Jis dude, I dunno about that one…

          • No Longer SIR Twakkus

            Well its going to be a short video but I am sure you can do it. Talking about video editing, Japan wins:

        • John on trial

          The game or the president? The game might be easier to make look good.

          • No Longer SIR Twakkus

            Haha, thats the point I am trying to make. It might be difficult but not impossible ;) I dont like trailers, they project something which may be waaaay off mark.

    • John on trial

      I too have made that error.

  • Hammersteyn

    I also like the SP campaign. Always did. But it so short and linear. Usually I rent the game on Saturday morning and I can breeze through the whole campaign and have the game back at the store before church starts on Sunday. Won’t surprise me at all if COD does goes Titanfall and drop the SP all together

    • John on trial

      If they can bring back a good SP like MW, then great. But if they can’t then they might as well drop it.

  • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

    Something is wrong in the force….This is a COD article…but no COD bashing is going on? ….. What is going on!!!! Who are you people?? My life is a lie

    • Hammersteyn

      I think the consensus is it’s not just orange flavored Oros anymore. They actually added more flavors this time around.

      • Admiral Chief of Rivia

        Agreed

      • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

        Who are you……..haha, but yeah I see so indeed, something new kind of. looks interesting

        • Hammersteyn

          Hehe cant fight the facts. Even on the MP side so much has been added. Fix the noscope as well and I might actually consider buying this. Though the SP will always be a priority for me.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            COD SP will never be enough to warrant a purchase as you mentioned above too. 4-6 hours of shooting is not enough. Rental suffices, might give it a rental

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I always get excited when I see CoD on special on Steam, because I really do want to play the SP portion. But then I see the price is still around $15/20 for a game that’s years-old – no thanks – not for a couple of hours.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Exactly. SP is fun, no doubt..but not anything over $20 worth of fun

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      This does not warrant bashing, this is actually looking good!

      • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

        Yeah….who would’ve thought!

  • Spathi

    I cannot take this anymore,
    Everything is the same as before,
    All these CODs makes no sense
    But I find bliss in ignorance,
    Get of forums, stay away,
    I LOVE COD, Can’t wait to play!

    Just like before…..

    Everything you’ve shown to me,
    Takes me one step closer to the edge,
    And I’m about to take the bait
    I need a little room to breath,
    Cause I’m one step closer to the edge,
    I’m about to ejaculate!

    Underwater, graphics so clear,
    All these fish just disappear,
    Dog in space, makes no sense,
    I find bliss in ignorance,
    Teabag your body, that’s okay,
    Over and over again…

    Just like before…

    Everything you’ve shown to me,
    Takes me one step closer to the edge,
    And I’m about to take the bait
    I need a little room to breath,
    Cause I’m one step closer to the edge,
    I’m about to ejaculate!

    Shut up, I’m not listening to you!
    Shut up, shut up, shut up,
    Shut up I’m not listening to you!
    Shut up, shut up, shut up,

    I’m about to ejaculate!

    Everything I say to you,
    You’re mom is a whore, and your sister too.
    That’s all true, I should know.
    I slept with both, and there I gooooooo!

    And I’m about to ejaculate!

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      O_O

    • John on trial

      All I read was “I cannot take this anymore, And I’m about to ejaculate”

      • Admiral Chief of Rivia

        LOL

      • TiMsTeR1033

        Perhaps he is very happy.

        • John on trial

          If this preview is getting us interested, just imagine what it does to the COD guys.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Good grief, I hope they are ok?

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I’m sure it has them drooling at the thought, just as I am so excited and eagerly awaiting Gta v.

    • ElimiNathan

      Wahahahahahaha

    • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

      LMFAO!! And I’m ABOUT TO BREAK!!

      • TiMsTeR1033

        Please don’t break Umar we need you!

        • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

          Lol Linkin Park yo, when they weren’t weak Electro losers

          • John on trial

            Amen to that brother.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Jeez how sucky is LP now….my god.I understand Chester has problems with his throat but man……I can’t listen to their crap anymore

          • John on trial

            Absolutely. I see the guitarist strumming like mad in the new music vidz and wonder…where the hell is the guitar in this song??

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            LOOL why do they have a guitarist in the first place. They sound like Chester and frooty loops band

          • John on trial

            They really do.
            I remember watching an interview with them when they did Meteora and Mike said that it’s always been important for them to maintain their unique sound so people will immediately know it’s them when the song comes on…guess that didn’t last.

          • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

            Very Very sad…They were a great band…..

          • Tbone187

            Yup, they really sold out.Couldn’t agree more.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I haven’t heard their stuff in awhile, cannot be that bad can it?

          • John on trial

            It’s really bad. I actually heard it on the radio and wondered how this guy in the pop band could sound so much like Chester….then I cried when I found out that it was my beloved LP that turned into an electro orgy.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Do you like Foster the people?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            You said it.

    • John on trial

      I’m glad you put the fish in that sick LP remake of yours. Wouldn’t have been the same without it.

    • TiMsTeR1033

      I am very impressed, I write poetry too.

      • Admiral Chief of Rivia

        So post us something already

        • TiMsTeR1033

          On a serious note, I have had poetry published.

          • John on trial

            Nice.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Was in South African National Poetry something or other, I cannot remember at this time.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Link or it did not happen

          • TiMsTeR1033

            How can I link a book?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Link to the article Tanya…

          • Brady miaau

            And she had no article, just a letter saying poems X,Y and Z or being published and we own it, not you.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I can write poems any time though.

          • Brady miaau

            Awesome!

            I cannot. At all. I can sort of write, but no poetry.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Having gifts and not using them is a big problem. I can draw, paint and write poems yet I don’t use any in recent years.

          • Brady miaau

            Indeed. I think most of us end up like that. Pity

          • SaintsRowLee

            Okay, I am not attacking you just for the record: But that is a shame if you got talents you are not using. I had the same issue, and for years it bugged me, until I took a step back from gaming and got back into writing a bit more. It also helped me enjoy gaming more as well, as I am now very selective in what I buy and play, as I only allow myself x amount of hours playing a week.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Prove it.

            You have until 9h30

          • TiMsTeR1033

            The catch is my spelling and grammar. I don’t want fail now. I also need a topic.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Beer and clouds.
            Go

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Seriously beer and clouds?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            …running out of time there Tanya…

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Will have to wait boss is back..

          • Brady miaau

            Um. Should that not be till boss leaves?

          • Brady miaau
          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You’re excused for poetry, you have artistic license.

          • Brady miaau

            My wife as well

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Book is called Memories in time, well I think.

          • Brady miaau

            Yeah, at some stage the South African National Poetry council asked for submissions for poetry competitions. If you “won” your poem(s) get published but no other prize, in an Anthology of peotry they sell for, 12 years ago, R300 at Exclusive books

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            The irony of it being called Memories.. maybe lol. I swear consoles have caused our minds to deteriorate.

      • Spathi

        Thank you, I’m very proud of my satirical piece too :D

        • Brady miaau

          Good! I assume you had some good flow there

    • Brady miaau

      No, no wait.

      Inspired by Linkin Park: One Step Closer, right?

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Are they going to load all the CoD copies into a rocket & fire it at the sun? Sounds like a plot for an Austin Powers movie.

    I’ll read the article now, just wanted to get that out the way.

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      You are gonna retract your statement after reading and watching the vid…

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Well that’s also a cool idea, but I still like mine. I’ll call it a draw. :D

  • ThatManOverThere

    Oh COD… Ruk nou weer ordentlik die hoender met die een… Begin al meer Sci-Fi lyk, maar nou ja, maybe I’m just a realism nut

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      Have you jammed ARMA?

      • ThatManOverThere

        Yes indeed! Since alpha… Pretty sweet

    • SaintsRowLee

      This whole “realism” in games fad is getting me down. If you want realism, why don’t you go join the army?

      • TiMsTeR1033

        I will play Gta v for realism.

        • John on trial

          Yes, because that game is jam-packed with realism.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            To think John just 6 days left.

          • John on trial

            I prefer not to think about it. But I must say, I think this is doing me good, actually.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            This test is distracting me from thinking too hard about Gta v.

          • Brady miaau

            6 sleeps?

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I’m not sure?

      • Admiral Chief of Rivia

        That’s a bit uncalled for don’t you think? We each have our own preference.

        • ThatManOverThere

          And as for facts on joining the army. Can’t join SADF even though I tried, thanks to certain policies. (Wanted to join the Air Force) Applied for British Army Air Corps, but decided against it, not wanting to fight a war I don’t support. So yeah, there you go *EDIT Lol sorry replied to the wrong comment! -_-

          • SaintsRowLee

            Look, you misunderstood me, and I can see how it happened. I am still waiting for the sarcasm font to be invented, so apologies if my statement came across as rude. Ek is nie altyd Lazygamer se ou tannie met die nat panty nie, ek belowe…

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            I hear ya, its just that you come across a bit like die ou tannie.

            Ontspan die boude dude, dis al wat ek vra.

          • ThatManOverThere

            No offence taken. Maar dankie vir die ‘clarification’

          • SaintsRowLee

            Geen probleem. :)

        • SaintsRowLee

          Okay, who died and made you comment police? Sorry. Henceforth I will be an Elcor and will start all comments with an emotive statement so I do not upset the daisies. Will that make your day? And if we all have our preferences, why are you taking me to task? Should I just shut up because I do not agree with the rest of the 09′ers on here?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Did I tell you to shut up? No I did not.

            I just think you were a bit brash in that comment. In fact, in quite a few of my comments, hence why I am talking to you about it. It certainly does feel like you have some sort of issue with quite a few people here.

            That is why am “taking you to task”

          • SaintsRowLee

            If you believe that I have issues with certain people, then you are mistaken.
            Just because I disagree with you on something does not make you my mortal enemy going forward.
            Believe me, if I had an issue with anyone, I would tell it to their face.
            As far as I can tell, in all my comments I did not attack anyone personally. I raised an issue I had and I kept my nose clean with all the comments after that.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Was referring to past incidents, not today.

            Glad to know you have no issues then.

            Moving on ;)

          • SaintsRowLee

            Ye Gods! You are the old tannie today! Mad at something I said weeks ago? :)

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Nay dude, just referring to the tone you generally post in.

            Just a thought

          • SaintsRowLee

            My dear Admiral, I do not think that is a thing I can change. There I am unfortunately my mother’s child. She was exactly like that. Where people would see a brash, cold hearted old cow I saw a woman who had a funny way of showing her love.
            Believe me, I love gaming as much as all of you. And I love all of you. But that does not mean I am always going to play nice with the other children.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Fair enough. Thanks for explaining your way of doing things. We all have our own way.

      • ThatManOverThere

        Don’t get me wrong, I understand that whole point of join the army blah die blah, a game is just a game, I just don’t like games like COD, which actually had a pretty believable story in the original MW, going crazy like Medal of Honor did with sci-fi based story lines all of a sudden… Personal taste I guess

  • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

    Pretty sure some of what I just watched was lifted straight from the trailer for Gravity 0-O

    • ThatManOverThere

      Yesss!!! Copy cats

  • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

    I suppose this makes sense. If you are going head to head with Titan Fall you are going to have to bring something crazy to the table. I think we are in for a treat this next generation either way. I just wonder what sort of budget this game is going to tally up, I can easily see it hitting the $120mil mark.

  • HvR

    “Here’s that trailer, showing soldiers floating about in space. And yes, firing rifles in a zero-gravity environment. It’s actually pretty laughable – but I don’t care”

    Actually quite possible, in fact a semi-automatic pistol is included in the Russian Cosmonaut crash land survival kit so if you piss off Boris on the ISS it is actually plausible as well.

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      Really? Damn, Russki’s are bad-ass yo!

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia
      • HvR

        The stop using the triple barrel pistol shotgun/flare gun a decade ago, they now pack a 9mm pistol.

        • Admiral Chief of Rivia

          Awesome, learned something at 9h58

          • HvR

            still do not know why I remember random useless facts I read/heard 10 years ago but struggle to remember the new password I set yesterday.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Haha, good thing you don’t work here.

            I have special punishments for end users forgetting the passwords.

            IMustNotForgetMyNewPassword1234566789

          • HvR

            Luckily we do not have an IT department we do everything ourselves so have all root passwords; mostly it is for online and gaming accounts where you have stupid limits on special characters or max length.

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Lol, indeed

    • Anon A Mouse

      Ja I also wondered why the firing of rifles in space is laughable. The weapons do not need outside oxygen to word since the powder in the projectile has its own oxidizer. Heck you can even shoot a gun under water. You will only be able to do it once since the gun will explode and take your hand(s) with it, but it can be done.

  • Jonah Cash

    I have never played any Call of Duty or games like it ever…. This might be the first, this really does look awesome!! Well done to the guys and gals who made this….

  • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

    Holy cow… okay that looks awesome. I love the COD single player stories, so many baysplosions

  • Cgb

    And its now Ghost Recon: Homefront with plot points from Goddamn Black Ops 2! Father and son in the military? Where have i seen this before?

  • Major FoxHoundR – what the fox

    me and my friends xXxJappiexXx and xXSn1p2Xx already preorderd this game.

  • WTFisThat23

    And thats why im not buying this shity game.. BO2 is a downgrade from MW3 and will always be.. MW2 will always be the BEST of the COD franchise and those times were the best,

    BTW GTA V in 5 Days :D
