, all the soldiers look like they have down syndrome !!!!!
and those lame jokes ........ ugh ..... I'm going to puke !!!!!!!
One thing he got right though was the spawnkilling ... yep that's CoD alright.
So Activi$ion thinks that keeping track of your stats and allergies is worth 8$ per moth ?

That video is pretty awful...very stereotypical and boring if you ask me. However, when Activision sees the poor reception that Elite is getting, they'll probably reveal that the paid service actually might come with features people want...like unique guns, upgrades and classes. Or perhaps dedicated servers for Consoles...you could even have the cross-platform thing that portal 2 has....that might be worth the money for some clans.

The whole situation is just upsetting. Although this was going to happen sooner or later, I think we all knew that. On the other hand I think it will not last long unless they honestly give consumers what we as gamers want on a month to month basis.

Map Content from older call of duty games [ MW especially ], as SOCOM HERO said above me some weaponry that is not available to the general player as well as special class slots etc. If it ends up like Halo waypoint, it should be free hands down.

A video was posted on youtube explaining this feature.

Blizzivizzle must have been smoking some Flava Flav big style crack rocks.

Jesus, I mean, if they're going to assess an online service charge, they'd better allow everyone and their brother who cross-platforms, (i.e. - WoW + any other series the company owns), to have mounts, AK-47s, deagles, etc. etc. par to the other games they pay for service to. I mean, who wouldn't want to come in on a Thundercougarfalconbird on Steriods with Second Wind enabled?

My ass is all I have to say to that. Congratulations, Activision, you've lost the ultimate respect of every non-serious proletariat gamer who had the resources to enjoy it. Rape us some more, why don't you?

So with this news can we get a petition or a sign up list of people on OCN who will not be paying for this game???

I would be interested in seeing how many names we can add to said list

I really don't care for CoD one way or the other but I hope this idea fails miserably.

I don't wanna have to pay for stuff constantly in the games that I buy. The Itunes app store went through a phase where it felt like every app made some use of the paid-in-app feature. It might still be that way but I stopped buying stuff there after that.

I'd hate to see the same thing happen to general video games. If I pay $60 for a game there is no need for me to have to pay a monthly fee to get the most out of it.

Everyone who has been playing FPS for some time would all concur. But I feel bad for them younglings who are going to start out. ugh

I am a COD fanboy in terms on just enjoying the story line and multiplayer action, but that's it. I aint paying more money for additional stuff.

I still remember the Call of Duty 2 days in which you bought the game and actually owned it.

Unless you hacked, got banned and were forced to buy another key
