      Black ops 3, surprisingly, was really good. The jumping and abilities immediately put me off but I played the beta and was surprised how well it all worked.
      I put a lot of hours into it so I am actually interested in this!

      Tbh theres always gonna be a part of me that wants to play CoD but also at same time I don't have time to waste with the same game year after year.
      Long given up on paying a premium price for a yearly game.
      I'll stick with Fortnite and Overwatch.

      Interesting. I thought black ops one was brilliant and quite refreshing for the franchise.

      Be interesting to see where they go with this.

      Would have thought they could have come up with a new franchise name than recycling black ops for a 4th. I dont know, maybe call of duty: special forces?

      Na. Poor lag compensation was introduced in blops and coming from MW2 it ruined it. As well as the terrible stutter on the PS3 version. 2 was terrible as well. Never bothered with 3 as I was done with COD at that point esp with loot boxes coming onto it too.

      Yes I remember the ps3 version was bad mind. Think I actually bought the game twice because of this. Was so much better on the Xbox. Although it was a compliment to how good it was that I bought it again for another platform, as when it worked on the ps3 it was great. Was like a dream on the Xbox.

      Regarding black ops 3 though I was the same as you. If it wasn't for the beta I wouldn't have touched it, and the videos of it didn't appeal to me but it actually played really well. Was my most played game by quite a bit as it really was surprisingly good.
      Advanced Warfare on the other hand....

      Blops was....and still is one of my favourite cods. The maps were excellent. I tired of each one more and more as they went on. I skipped infinite warfare and bought last year's for the campaign (which wasn't bad tbh) but I've been done with the MP for years now. Well it's not just cod, besides the division I'm pretty much done with all online shooters first or 3rd person and have been that way out for a while now. I think if my own group of friends still played them I'd dive on but they don't so no one bothers with it. Loved it back in the day though.

      No campaign mode, it's being replaced by a 'battle royale' mode instead

      Anyone play the open beta?

      I downloaded it and had 15 mins, crashed 3 times and had big fps stutters. I have seen some fixes and BO3 had similar issues, so got a couple of things to try but it ends at 6pm tonight I beleive. Gonna try get another quick blast in before it ends.

      The battle royale betas live.

      Its like a cross between a mobile game, pubg and like COD 390589.
      I wanted to like this game, twitch has made it look fantastic.

      The combat feels weird. Like just not what you expect from games anymore.

      Im hoping they do a massive 50gb texture pack, it needs it badly.

      pretty much bang on - looks like a cross between forenite and old cod games - graphics wise it's awful. Very clunky interfaces in the inventory, switching between perks/weapons etc.

      gun fights are awful - hit people about 10 times and they still don't go down.

      This looks like a dog's dinner as others have said. I am finding it strangely compelling though. The cod mechanics work really well for this kind of title and it does play like a more mature fortnite without all the building stuff.

      Dunno if I can justify buying it though with so many other games to play.

      I am rather shocked no one has liked the Blackout mode on here...

      I thought it was great. Didn't expect much, but it was great fun. Probs enough to make me buy the game, which I wasn't sure I was going to do based on the MP beta.

      It seems like others have really enjoyed it too, lots of positivity about it around the web and from the big YouTubers etc.

      I liked it even if the graphics we're awful, hopefully that'll improve on release.

      Performance was an issue for me. I only have a 60Hz monitor, so have VSYNC on and I generally got about 50fps on ultra but the mouse lag was terrible.

      Read up about previous black ops issues,and tried many tweaks but basically it came down to if my FPS was under 60 the mouse lag was horrible, so I had to turn off VSYNC, which gave me tearing, and turn down some settings to get about 70fps, and the mouse was fine.

      Very annoying!

      So this is out today.

      Looked at a few early reviews, mainly from YouTube, and I am actually surprised how positive it is. Not just the person reviewing it, but also the comments from people saying it is the most enjoyable COD since MW2 etc. A lot of positivity.

      I am keeping an eye out for a good price. I am pretty busy the next couple of weeks so not in any mad rush.

      Don't people say these things every year on release then they put some time in and the hate ensues.

      Yes, it's wishful thinking. They have just wasted £40 on yet another piece of sh*t COD game and are making themselves think it is an improvement. Wait a few days and it will return to form. :)

      Innovation is completely dead in the FPS genre. Just rehashes over and over again, not one fresh idea, just rinse (the gamers) and repeat.

      For me its a nice game, yes the graphics are a bit meh, but it's much better than PUBG and those other games. I really like it for battle royale.

      You cant. Hes talking about the br.
      Or ive misread. Then comparing a br to an arena shooter isnt apples for apples.

      Just feels more polished to me, I like the fps as well and always feel at a disadvantage in PUBG and others when using fps

      Is there a single player in this release and if so, is it just an afterthought again?
