Just learned that Activision will be releasing a new Call of Duty this year. I gotta say I'm pretty ticked about it. Robert and I have been playing COD since the first one in 2004, and we have always gotten the new one and had to upgrade our computers to be able to play the latest. It's our hobby. We have had friends we've made over the years through the game. But, every time a new one comes out, someone always gets left behind because the person can't afford to upgrade their machine. Whenever a new one comes out, most people have to upgrade their computers to be able to play it. That's what ticks me off the most. I'm tired of paying $50 a year to buy a new game, and I'm tired of paying for new computer parts every year to be able to play with my friends. Seriously, I wish there was a limit on how often a company can release a new version of a game.
Why couldn't they have made it an expansion pack of either COD4 or COD5? They would still get their $50, and people wouldn't have to upgrade their computers. It would be really cool if COD4 had some Humvees and flyable helicopters and new maps. Or, if COD5 had new maps, some Jeeps and flyable planes, especially since COD5 has Japs. How cool would that be to fly your plane into the Allies spawnpoint and blow them all up at once AND get a first person view of it? That would be even cooler than napalm. They released an expansion pack for COD1, and with that you could drive Jeeps and tanks. Everyone though it was great, and no one had to pay an arm and a leg for a new video card or a new processor.
If they do release it this year, they better not screw it up like they did with COD5 and its glitches. Or, they will start losing some of their long time committed customers.
