Cyberpunk as an Ideological Safe Space For Transhuman Capitalist Techno-Fascist Jerkoffs

RND// To consider at least a few ways in which Cyberpunk always was a mere ideological safe space for transhuman capitalist techno-fascist jerkoffs.

A possible response or temporary 12-step satirical antidote to the uninterrupted, unfiltered gushing hype still (to this day) surrounding what basically seems only a minor vestigial sub-genre within the literary sc-fi ghetto:

Scene 000. Oh to unceremoniously drop kick Cyberpunk back into the back alley garbage it was found discarded in. Not only just another gross teen terminator power level 9000 circle jerk, but a key expression of the banal fantasy of power – always simply just Your-Inner-Dad with a new fake designer eye he utterly fails to perceive his own willful idiocy and asshole-ness from. A speculative scenario in which Cyberpunk was, and is always forever thoroughly bleached / beached plastic White (as a state of techn0-mind and will-to-dominance.) Cyberpunk as cool, only in the sense that a twitching corpse hooked up to the internet is cold to the touch.

Scene 001. Cyberpunk as a Dark (/Web) Paradise – a desperately inane Killing Joke always at someone else’s real expense, writ large on the walls of Global Spectacle – bloody, circuit-riddled idiot brains smeared up against a wall of conservative shit streaks, mere ideological shorthand for “Sociopathically Fetishized Hyper-Futurism” – that is, a perfected Utopian Dystopia or Dark Paradise for arche-typical leather clad über-dingus “Lord Edge” to strut around in – renegade maverick dick king of the biowired dung-heap, casually dishing out Cool Cyberpunk Headshots to those deemed less automatically unworthy of survival in His Brave New Data Order. Cyberpunk as something always kinda pathetic and vague and dimly violent, for tough guy wankers only – militant Ryandian individualists with a pathological Lone Wolf Syndrome chip on / in their shoulders – self important internet trolls run amok who underwent Permanent Irony-Gland Removal Procedure at vat-birth.

Scene 002. “Information Wants To Be Free.” Yeah, for a price only a pre-selected minority can pay. What ‘freedom’ in this context means is simply exclusive Neoliberal distribution rights – the heavy hidden hand of the global market place concerned only with constant ‘disruption’ – ie. constantly shaking dead tree to loosen coins from your rentier wallet – the black hole of big data pushing its dead weight around, leveling entire mountains to shave off milliseconds off sweet ‘free market’ trades. Information releasing itself from Pandora’s internet box, only as a cause for celebration for those already with the fiscal means to trade in it. And besides, who gives a flying neon tinted shit about apparently holy ‘Information’ when it’s Meaning your starving for?

Scene 003. On “The Street Finds It’s Own Uses For Things”: No. You don’t live on the street like or with almost everyone else – you merely hang about on rainy rooftops looking cool, have easy instant access to bleeding edge arm blades and high caliber A.I retorts for when you’re murdering roving mutie punk gangs. Your weak “I didn’t ask for this”™ excuse doesn’t wash here either – nobody’s buying the fact The System had you brought hook line and sinker from the very outset. This is a ‘program’ (in all senses) you already committed to with every breath of your pretty designer lungs.

Sure, you often get all angsty over the radical changes to your meat puppet body and your ongoing mis-relationship with technology (at this point, sufficiently indistinguishable from Magical Thinking) but no doubt your cool black leather jacket and ‘street cred’ will see you through another day of hard, bloody ‘biz’ and designer sex, you poor synthetic lamb.

Scene 004. The same goes for that old ‘High Tech, Low Life’ lie: whenever Cyberpunk talks of and-or evokes ‘grim meathook realities’, it’s only ever suggesting that some poor bastard making shoes out of old tires on a dusty street corner in Africa is somehow remotely ‘cool’. That is, it’s only ever cool and interesting from an ultra-privileged, White-minded, colonialist position of safety and comfort. You are not (nor never were) that abandoned orphan in some war lord torn state, forced to sell your life and labor to passing Ugly Inner Amerikan tourists in a passing air conditioned tour bus; you are not seen as entirely disposable and meaningless as the tires they cut using a bit of old wire connected to a stolen Tesla battery.

You however with your soft hands, soft wired brain, almost no moral spine and barely a fucking clue, generally live on the Lowest Default Difficulty Setting possible. So enough oozing with techno-romanticism already – all those pious industry psalms have been heard before. Cyberpunk as a cheap holiday through other people’s misery – with WiFi.

Scene 005. Anti-Humanist, Cyberpunk Transhuman Assholism 101: In which you are only ‘free’ under Global Ludocapitalism to be an ’emancipated slave’ – ie. to be free to mindlessly be consumed by mass consumption. There’s about as much potential for actual freedom within Cyberpunk Reality as there is by upgrading your fucking graphics card in order to play Cyberpunk 2077 (wow, who even remembers them Old W4r3z?)

Scene 006. Style Over Substance.

It’s like, hey, you get more street cred experience because you looked cool killing someone.” – Alvin Liu, CD Projekt Red

You mean only have style, because your substanceless and generally pathetic. But no, wait haven’t you heard? That’s recently been updated with a hotfix patch to ‘style *with* substance’ – the new old Playstation inspired Third Way, ‘Labor with a Laptop’ as they used to say in England. It’s been done to death. Talk about barely warmed over – at this point, Cyberpunk make Zombies look fresh dynamic and exciting.

Scene 007. The Cyberpunk Future Doesn’t Need You: It’s been repeatedly running itself into the ground for quite a while now. A fully automated shit show out of control – yet which is fully in control of you. Likewise, nobody needs Cyberpunk. Try living in a shitty rented room with a flickering neon sign loudly humming right outside; you’ll want to smash that shit right off with a lump hammer inside an hour. (How deadpan-ironically punk.)

Scene 008. The Only Thing Good About Punk Was Post-Punk. Punk was to Disco what Post Punk was to Syd Vicious – some dimly aggressive undead hamster who shot up speed mixed with vomit and toilet water and only impressed very few. Shit, the only thing going for Punks was the very fact they were Pretty Vacant – at least compared to Cyberpunks cosmically cringy, ultra self serious techno-fascist ‘Mirrorshades’ data highway cop look. Thankfully we collectively moved on fast after that false dead start and got Television, Wire, Cocteau Twins and No Wave. Listen to the raw power of Iggy’s Down On The Street and realize (/Cyber)punk on serious LSD tabs would be an immediate and much needed improvement. The Stooges make (/Billy Idol’s) Cyberpunk look like Fucking Abba’s Greatest Hits.

Scene 009. Cyberpunk as Pseudo-Dystopian (‘Pseudopian’): The myth Cyberpunk constantly told itself is that was it ever somehow remotely, truly Dystopian. In fact it was only ever merely fascist Italian Futurism’s love of the sounds of war and destruction – as seen from a nice balcony overlooking the carnage in the distance. Only a few Cyberpunk fiction ever truly lived in its mundane everyday world – the vast majority (of the 1% minority) always seem too busy strutting around with all the necessary implants making big deals, busy battling for data, working for the man – all meals, ammo, accommodation and associated expenses part of the exclusive Deal.

Scene 010. In which Cyberpunk is that obnoxious pasty shit-eating brat from Ready, Player One – but just armed to his perfect teeth with smart air burst ammo and a heavily modified illegal 3D printed AK47 he regularly polishes with his MAGA hat. And somewhere on the wall of his hollow rented skull you can bet is a slightly torn poster of Cyberpunk’s spiritual guru / mythical founder William Gibson – a hopeless beanpole voyeur nerd who simply wasn’t cool enough back in the day to hack it as a hippie.

Note that an anagram of “William Gibson, Neuromancer” is “Common as unreliable wiring” and perfectly describes most Cyberpunk ever conceived – that is, it was written (badly) by Console Cowboys. [‘Cowboy’ is a UK term for bad tradespeople who do a lousy job on your house, often for inflated prices.]

Scene 011. Mask Of The Colonial Gaijin: in which all Cyberpunk ever did was pick and choose other far more interesting cultures and peoples to rip off and colonialize – which were already acting Cyberpunk in infinitely far more interesting ways than, eg. the talent free director Rupert Sanders ever envisioned. Thing is, saying shit like “Kowloon Walled City is oh so (cool and) Cyberpunk” often only ever merely betrays one as a depthless idiot, entirely indifferent to poverty and human suffering – who is only ever really interested in the Advanced Techno Aesthetic, regardless of the utterly misery which built those very (/social) structures. “It sure is neat to visit there (Virtually).. [but I’m sure glad someone else is living there instead of me!]”

Scene 012. Transhumanism: as simply anti-philosophical ideological justification for ultra rich white assholes who want to live and reign forever – as if they didn’t already own enough of the fucking pie. ‘Sieg Science’ is the transhumanist motto. Bollocks to that. Coming soon to an A.I-drone graffitied wall near you: “Death To Immortals.”

In short: believe in the pathetic, darkly laughable, amazingly obsolete, acutely embarrassing intellectual poverty and conceptual / artistic irrelevance of Cyberpunk – and YOUR DEATH WILL BE LIKE BAD SCIENCE FICTION. (Note: Keanu Reeves is only remotely ‘breathtaking’ if you’re a total chode.)

Rage 2 as the worst (most hollow) videogame of modern times

RND/ to consider poor old Rage 2, as perhaps the worst videogame of modern times – one crying out for a new theory of Hollow Videogaming to explain its particular deficiencies.

A fascinating example of a global industry long gone to creative pot and perfectly content to sit on its distinctly minor laurels, imagine Rage 2 as the digital equivalent of taste free Styrofoam Packing Peanuts; the epitome of safe, by-the-numbers design by neckless committee – the apogee of lazy and cynical Corporate Gaming Culture. Yet do not lament for its D.O.A appearance, nor its near-instant passing.

Rage 2: Abandoned Garbage

Mechanically speaking of course, its movement system and moment-to-moment gunplay seem perfectly tuned to standard AAA sub-standards. While decidedly ordinary and mindlessly repetitive (read: normalized), these systems easily pass for what’s commonly termed Fun(TM) by wandering, easily impressed ‘PC Master Race’ hordes. Rinse and repeat till you finally uninstall due to Terminal Boredom.

Blowing up spanner dumb baddies with rockets – unloading round after predictable round of shotgun ammo while in ‘overdrive’ mode into blank, expressionless faces of idiot A.Is somehow remains interesting throughout the short length of the main single player campaign. It has to be – there’s almost nothing interesting about any other aspect of the world presented. As a fragmented whole far less even then the sum of its dull, listless parts, Rage 2 feels like a vast, open world stuffed full of.. nothing much in particular.

To say this game and others like it “doesn’t exactly reinvent the wheel” seems a cosmic scale understatement. It’s a long abandoned sandbox in a post apocalyptic playground, casually littered with a few dried lumps of mutant dog crap and crushed beer cans – their ancient corporate logos scoured away by the dust of digital time and the synthetic ravages of game engine sunlight. As though every element of the game merely dropped in, right out of the Digital Void – or was simply pinched off, straight out of the industry’s dark arts.

Users often report crashes to desktop, while repeatedly sighing like unwell wood pigeons. Day one patches abound. Before release, the trailers are pure AAA, hyped up ‘bullshots’ – in game Rage 2 often looks smeary, flat, largely free of geometric detail (bring back megatextures, all is forgiven!) and amazingly devoid of anything approaching Life, Emotion – or Meaning. A barren gaming wasteland, listlessly explored in a little armoured beep-beep mobile, wondering why the heck you pre-ordered (while waiting for Doom Eternal, Halo Master Chief Collection or Keanu Cyberpunk 2077 to arrive.) In the meantime, there’s yet another wastey bandit camp for you to clear out to the deep virtual north of here.

Remember those Super Ultra Generic cans of quality consumer digestibles seen in the Alex Cox’s cult punk road movie Repo Man (1984) which just said “FOOD” on the label? Well, consider Rage 2 in the exact same hopeless category. The helpful phrase ‘naff’ describes it well; a UK term indicating something is of poor quality; dull, flat, deficient. (Think of some cheap widget brought off Ebay that breaks within a week, some small plastic bit snapped off forever.)

Despite the use of awful Andrew W.K whiteboy music, Rage 2 is about as edgy and hardc0re as Your-Dad, a game nobody asked for – and yet still somehow didn’t even really arrive, even as it limped on and then instantly off our collective memory screens. Just view recent Steam Charts for desperate, saddening proof. It’s the long tale of a dead rat.

Rage 2: Concurrent Players (Steam Charts)

The only reason it seems to exist, is that by now it’s pathetically easy for companies to throw violently uninspired games like this together, and then (apparently) make easy polystyrene profits. One can imagine the design brief, tacked to the corner of some poor, half Crunched to death gamedev’s monitor screen – “Wacky Post Apocalyptic Something Loot Shooter.” (Even so, Gamesindustry.biz reports that, comparatively speaking Rage 2 is selling about half what the original did, despite the increase in digital sales.)

As regards artfully chosen aesthetics and coherent overall art direction, at least the original Rage had some – unlike Rage 2, where precise, considered design has been replaced wholesale by garish neon hues and dumb spiky hairdos. (Most NPC’s look like Keith Flint [rip] after a heavy night out on the sauce.) Someone’s making a killing in post apocalyptic hair gel! Fetishistic dystopian nuke porn for a generation all but undead from exposure to the gamma radiation of pre-order hype. (*Cough* I returned my virtual copy within half an hour.) Despite expressing what Jim Sterling disliked about Metro Exodus – that it was hopelessly cluttered and extraneously detailed to near-Baroque levels, featuring “immaculately detailed rust” – at least the original Rage clearly indicated that, at least someone somewhere was honestly trying their best.

With Rage 2 however, the overall tonal deafness and disjunction is complete. It looks and feels like it was thrown together almost automatically, via Algorithmic Google A.I Hive Mind Tech. The visual results are at worst, amazingly banal but at best express a kind of lonely, hollow kitsch. As though the entire game’s universe is simply milling about. Much like its NPC’s. Disconnected fiddling. ‘Faffing’. Permanently idling. Waiting around for a player to come and put it out of its miserly misery with multiple bullets. Truly, a game both from and of a digital post apocalypse.

Several places in Rage 2 remind one of PUBG’s desert map Mirimar – but instead of a timeless desolate beauty, their simply non-places, disappointing loot-deficient cubes.

With Rage 2, the desperate illusion of a dynamic, breathing world has finally come to rest, utterly spent and wasted by the side of the Mad Max highway to videogaming oblivion. It’s a toothless dog that’s crawled under the porch to die, alone and unloved. From this point on, there’s an argument to be made that Rage 2 symbolically stands as the ultimate in abandoned movie sets – half built and jerry-rigged, stuck together with sun melted duct tape and cheap cans of neon paint. (Even now, you can still hear the bearings rattling inside the cans, fading into the silently howling digital desert night winds.) Rage 2 as the static between dead stations, now and forever offline.

Of course, the best-worst aspect of the Rage 2 experience must be the endless (false) need to keep running forward, endlessly scooping up those fucking blue Feltrite Cells (health shards) dropped by recently killed enemies. Naturally these disappear almost instantly, and so must be proactively collected like crack vials. This exactly mirrors 2016’s “Doom Lite”, giving players back health with each kill, thereby forcing them to wade into the fray, like Mario collecting coins. Deliberately putting oneself in harm’s way, chaining – kills like empty, unwashed milk bottle days between – because such action directly feeds into the game’s focus on constant movement as raw AAA corporate videogame consumption.

This is a naked gambling mechanic which seems inspired by the repeated pull of Las Vegas slot machine levers. A straight up dirty psychological tactic, designed for short and long term reinforcement and guiding behaviour, a form of ‘learning’ about dopamine-potential-spike like rewards. In terms of raw disgust, it has to be up there with using Deliberately Slow Walking Speeds to pad out play time (eh, Metro Exodus?) Anything, anything at all to keep us gaming and our attention off the fact we’re being actively diverted from all that truly matters. From the plain fact Rage 2 doesn’t matter in the slightest (and most certainly doesn’t give a single rusted bottle cap about us.)

The two dimensional dialogue of Rage 2 ‘characters’ is amazing – like listening to the inner cringe inducing psychic ramblings of mildly coked up strangers in some try-hard XPox 360 game lobby. Someone disposable (with bad lip sync) yelps “There’s plenty more where that came from. I’m telling you. This is the big one.” To which the listless response is “Alright, then let’s go fuckin’ get some.” Yea. Certainly the kind of quality AAA Industry writing that gets anyone pumped for the action to come! And ooh boy does it ever go on, especially in cutscenes, the first of which players encounter in a sealed vault has them breaking fingernails in attempts to claw the front door open, trying to escape what might be termed an ‘unskippable, unending inquisition by turgid narrative exposition’.

As Danny Brown says or rather screeches in one of Rage 2’s bizarre trailers, “Ain’t it funny how it happens?” To which the answer is no Dan, not really. It didn’t happen by accident but was designed that way. It seems the only point of Rage 2 is to help combat gamer insomnia. Perhaps passing poly-dimensional alien anthropologists from the impossibly distant psychedelic future will eventually pry open the dusty, long-abandoned ark of ‘our’ Corporate Gaming Culture and scratch their elegant insectoid heads in bemusement at this oh-so slight, kinda pathetic 21st Century example of Brainless Digital Fun. Hopefully they will then unceremoniously seal the ark for good, and have no trouble at all forgetting about its existence – and the oh-so safe, dull and hyper derivative product contained within.

Observant players will notice the high numbers of store front mannequins dotted around Rage 2’s blandscape, many of which sport broken televisions (maybe oldschool computer monitors?) on their idiot heads; could there be any more accidentally on-the-nose symbol of this game’s pathological uselessness – perhaps of gaming’s profoundly un-profound cosmic uselessness as a whole?

Expect to pay no more than 20 dollars when it comes out on sale, fished from the bottom of some dusty Digital Walmart bargain bucket – a mummified rodent, partially covered in pink spray paint. A dead land of bone tired existential waste and impotent ‘rage’ indeed.

What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images [..]
– The Waste Land by fascist T.S. Eliot

Hey Robert,

Thanks for sending this over! I like the article but we’re not planning to run a month on Rage 2 anytime soon and don’t accept freelance submissions upon request.

Thanks again for thinking of us with this, though.

All the best, Reid McCarter

Transcripts of “Fallout 76 is hot garbage” Style Youtube Videos

RND/ for historical archiving purposes of passing near future alien anthropologists – to consider transcripts [1] of “Fallout 76 is hot garbage” style youtube videos

First the official trailer:

hello everyone and welcome back to top 10 trends youre already mad from the title thats fine im mad too but i want you to be mad with me you want to be mad at me lets fight lets fight it out there hasnt been a fallout game i didnt like yeah that includes fallout 4 and no that doesnt include fallout tactics come on what do you think i am a sap but i actually liked fallout 4 they ruined a lot of things about fallout 4 but they improve some things too and at the end of the day its still a great game in my opinion you dont like it fine fallout 76 is literally setting off klaxon nuclear warhead incoming sirens in my brain this game already seems like a disaster youre gonna have to duck and cover to get away from this game todd howard is about to nuke any sense of the fallout universe not already nuked into oblivion by its own aesthetic these are 10 reasons fallout 76 will be radioactive wasted potential and i could give you 76 reasons but wed be here all day number 10 i dont need fallout themed dayz / rust slash gta online if it doesnt even let you grieve the game is designed around gathering loot and taking it from others or taking it out of the world and any game designed that way automatically becomes more unplayable the more mainstream if he comes its just a rule of the design of the game when you cant actually talk or negotiate with someone ie the vast majority of players in any game you cant play with randoms in any serious capacity if you dont believe me did you play dayz before it got mainstream you should know what im talking about have you ever tried to auto look for group and wow and play with randoms howd that turn out for you fam did that turn out well that did they work out the way you wanted or they just look up constantly because they have no idea whats going on at all even when youre trying to work on a team these people have no clue whats going on the vast majority of people just cant process information or communicate now youve got to deal with all of them as you try to work with your friends somewhat bethesda has also gone on record saying theyll be putting an anti griefing measures but that removes the entire point of the game in the first place imagine dayz with no people and there you go some of you im sure would like that a lot most of us would dayz with no people to shooting it is no game imagine ross with no people and it might be fun for a little bit you can make your own fun little scenarios but after a while thats gonna be boring if the game comes out like gta online that in my opinion has a bit of potential but i dont see how they can do that and make not grief abul i have to flock with my internet settings just to be able to deliver guns safely in gta i dont want to have to go on the dark web in order to have fun and fallout 76 number 9 no npcs i really cant understand a fallout game without npcs maybe thats just me and my old brain the original to fallout games were actual role-playing games fallout 1 and 2 have to have creative and engaging stories with interesting interactive and pcs that you can engage with because thats all they had to sell at the time thats all they had thats what a role-playing game is fallout 3 to vegas have interesting npcs in an interesting environment that you interact with fallout new vegas the most so because it has actual decisions that affect the outcome of the game and you actually feel like youre setting up a role youre being put into a role to play the game 3 not so much in my opinion youre just this generic son who has to do this one generic thing 1 & 2 you very much play a role if youve ever played the very old fallout games new vegas kind of harkens back to those new vegas is very much an old-school role-playing game no npcs are you kidding me so this is just an action game now this is just a kind of a survival action game where you run around collecting loot using some sort of half-assed poorly maintained crafting system playing of worst version of minecraft for the fallout aesthetic great and i thought fallout 4 was already a bad version of minecraft even gta online has npcs you dont interact with them much and they call you way too much on your phone but at least it doesnt feel entirely empty at least you could go to tequila lala and beat the hell out of someone even though that mission sucks at least theres something to interact with im aware there are going to be monsters and beasts all right i understand that and thats basically what the people in gta online serve as the npc people but at least theres something to do with other npcs entirely player-driven god this story if there is one is gonna suck and number eights always online always online is a recipe for disaster one knew you could no longer played at your convenience always online that works real well with simcity didnt it e8 you think you know someone would learn from the other companies in their field failing around them but know whatever fine skyrim always online to always online means that youre always at risk of being griefed if they nerf griefing like i said its not really an always online game its just a lazy open-world game theyre trying to have it both ways here and i dont think theyre gonna do it very well always online is something you would put on a tombstone its like when a doctors diagnosis sheet when they flip over they see always online and they go on fees like that its like the cancer of games you see it on a game mark of death move on its basically over its a horse death sentence at this point that microtransactions and i know they havent announced it yet but im gonna call it right now theres going to be microtransactions in fallout 76 number 7 this isnt a role-playing game fallout games have traditionally been role-playing games and well they dont have to stick to that entirely im really getting sick and tired of people defending this game by saying its gonna be the ultimate role-playing game because you make your own roll no stupid thats not how role-playing games were open-world is usually the antithesis to role-playing games now there are some exceptions there are always exceptions to the rule one stalker fantastic open-world slash roleplay gaming experience kingdom come deliverance fantastic open-world roleplay game experience the difference both of those have unique well-developed stories and awesome amazing npcs the witcher 3 good rpg good open-world game use play a specific role and you do that role you dont get to pick your own role you dont get to do all this crazy crap for yourself metal gear solid 5 isnt kind of in the middle ground game i didnt like that people were calling it a role-playing game but i can understand why to some degree at least youre interacting with something there are a lot of choices to be made of metal gear solid 5 adds unfinished as it is this is not gonna be an rpg there are gonna be no roles to play here other than being griefed or griefer role-playing game basically means nothing anymore its because its been so bastardized by modern gaming it can mean anything from literally an open empty world with no roles genre or mechanical limits and it could mean something as specific and in-depth as vampire the masquerade vampire the masquerade is a fantastic role-playing game because you play a role theres an interesting woven story around that game its not just empty and you wander around in it this is not gonna be a role-playing game and i thought fallout 4 was basically just an action shooter this is gonna be much more divergent than that this is gonna be less of a role-playing game that metal gear survive is take a second to think about that was a time in recent history when bethesda was the company that determined what the next-gen of role-playing games would look like because theirs were so good we have moved so far away from that time number six if fallout 4 is anything to go by the base building will be clunky and terrible i really really dont want to play another repeat of fallout force base building have some sort of separate interactive menu where you can place buildings or something for gods sake having to run around and actually do it with it position in front of you i just ive never liked that my craft works a bit differently you placed it down block by block theres a lot of chances to change it in the middle of making it fine rust i also dont like for that exact reason i like the game russ i dont like making buildings in rust but even rust is more suited to making buildings probably because it wasnt shoved in last minute then anything in fallout 4 and if fallout 76 is anything like fallout 4 it will be nearly unplayable i cannot wait till they announce that theres also a battle royale mode and fallout 76 just say and another thing number five most likely no single-player campaign i say most likely and thats being generous they said theres gonna be always online no single-player campaign open please tell me how its still a role-playing game you can play alone but then you just get rekt by roving hordes of brazilians the second fallout 76 is a free weekend play plays ruin everything else theyre a part of free weekends goodbye fallout 76 no single-player campaign but its still the ultimate role-playing game because you make your own rules in fact you make your own game theres not even a game here you just you voted for the ground up garrys mod ultimate role-playing game number four the map is probably way too massive this is an unpopular opinion but you guys need to listen here seriously do you remember when gta 5 announced how big their map was and it was dope right i was excited you were excited thats a huge man what is it still dope now that you have to drive 20 minutes just to do a single mission that pays you four to ten times less than what it should no see what i mean its too big of a map now too much wasted space in los santos virtually 40% of gta 5 s map is it used for anything no one fights out there unless you set up a little scenario and purposely gotta be a way to use the map most of it is just empty wasted big in the flocking way mountain and i love gta 5 who didnt love spending upwards of 20 minutes holding w and daisy to get from cherno to wests airfield i used awaited spook her i prefer well detailed maps of new vegas fallout 3 even fallout 4 to some extent things like stalker shadow of chernobyl or kingdom come deliverance where you can tell people spend time putting every single detail into this map because they knew every nook and cranny of it was going to be important at some point even the places you said oh im not gonna go there thats just a point of this map wrong thats what i want to see and maps that are bigger dont have their someone spent a lot of time working on those maps i doubt fallout 76 will get the same love and care considering you wont be looking at places to explore youll be looking for all your lost after someone nukes you into oblivion number 3 bethesda is anti griefing but there are nukes in the game these nukes are a problem guys a problem i dont think they know how to answer bethesda said that theyre gonna try to stop griefing but they plan to put a go flock yourself button in the game in the form of a nuke you know nukes were hard to get in metal gear solid 5 – and they said that the difficulty of obtaining the nukes and fallout 76 will stop people from using them but that never stopped me in metal gear solid 5 i dont care about konami insurance it didnt exist yet your base my horns bye-bye if the nuke is ineffective like they said it would be to prevent it from being overused then what is there really to strive for how does the little guy get a leg up on the 16 + man ready group that will invariably plague every single server in the game before it becomes dried up and defunct i doubt the combat would be as difficult to navigate as arma and daisy so simple numbers will most likely always give you an advantage if it plays like any other fallout game in existence so how does one person or a small group of people fight against 16 theyre just gonna get overwhelmed even if theres anti griefing rules thats how a nuke comes into play a small group with a nuke has the same fighting power is a big group without a new unless the nuke is worthless of course and in which case everyone loses the nuke gets launched some people die the small group dies and everyones unhappy joy number 2 vets in real time whats the point if thats is too good im gonna dump all my points into that and then i win if its not good at all then ill just aim regularly and forget it exists and its a pointless mechanic if its some terrible meddling affair it wont help you in quick charge surprise fights thats was fallout solution to removing rts elements from their previous games in the franchise while still allowing players to plan out their attacks and take things at their own speed thats what vats is its to help you aim if youre not good at aiming at games and its also there in order to give you a little bit of time to think about what you want to do the speed is dictated by everyone else we saw how useless vats wasnt fallout 4 i barely used vats and fallout 4 because they made the shooting so easy there was no point anymore they made everything just kind of work vets was the most useful in my opinion in fallout new vegas when things that armour values and things were a bit more complicated and it still felt like an rpg rts now the speed of the game is dictated by everyone else fats will not slow down time so its now just as old and obsolete as fallout tech itself how ironic thats that kids let you slow down time to think isnt really vas its just a bot assisted mechanics and number one the biggest reason im not gonna get fallout 76 to tell you no and literally everything about it and trust that im not convinced fallout 76 isnt just a clone of skyrim do you really trust todd howard enough for him to not sell a game where you wake up in a vault and then youre forced into a small room to sit at a computer and play skyrim because i dont trust todd howard that much im 99% sure thats going to happen well i hope you guys enjoyed the video i do feel all these opinions pretty strongly but if you enjoy the game if you were looking forward to it i hope to god its good for you i hope youre having a great day what are you looking to most about fallout 76 how about that bye bye

all out 76 is gonna be a complete piece of garbage and heres why because yes fallout 76 is entirely online yeah this story more building yes im playing russ with my friends what if i dont have friends no singleplayer all these are live thats just what i wanted time as you venture out into this new american frontier some of your fellow survivors may not be neighborly [music] get a new case its the last thing i do damn that was hard man took me like four or five hours of gathering materials just to get this part done yeah boy i reckon flock me about ten hours just working on my side of the quarters whoo i sure am proud of where i made hope nothing happens to it we got the nuke lets mess up these dudes they took my stuff and im gonna take their base years now people have been wanting a co-op fallout or a co-op elders well im pretty sure when these people envisioned a co-op game they didnt think the main gimmick of the game would be around surviving yes theyre gonna still have quests in the game pod says that the overseer is gonna send you around just six different areas are these quests gonna be beeker then other fallout games are they gonna be less in depth because more of the focus is on surviving more of the focuses on multiplayer or the focus is on pvp with other players i feel like the story is gonna take the backseat in this game and its gonna be more about that big problem with this game is that its always online and its not a true single-player campaign people are pissed i mean hashtag not my fallout on twitter people signing a petition they introduced a single-player only mode stuff like this i mean if it was like any other fallout game but co-op or four player it would be fine but its not like any other fallout game this fallout game isnt based around the story this game is based around building and gathering materials to build your base and killing other players to screw them over like that could be fun for a while but i mean how many people are gonna get pissed when they work so hard it killed all their stuff gets stolen main gimmick of this game is the survival aspect so storys gonna be in the back from what todd said the overseer actually sends you on a quest to go to six zones its the quest gonna be just like okay go to this zone pick up this material so you can build yes are the quest basically gonna be a tutorial or you just okay oh it would so you can build a fireplace so you dont get hurt it are oh you can build a workshop station and start building guns this is definitely not what people wanted this is gonna be probably a garbage game honestly i mean no single player you say come on [music] games gonna be garbage symbols that id love to hear your debates down below id love to hear somebody make a case for fallout and somehow tell me its not garbage id also love to hear any other opinions on the subject please leave a comment down below tell me if im a stupid retard or if im making sense here i dont really care just tell me something i run from game yak goodbye

coming flocking get me you white ass fascist nazi pig [music] whats going everybody gonna go over some bethesda news got two things i want to talk about with them that i found and why theyre garbage company first though follow me over on twitter ella flash comics ill be streaming over there soon and subscribe to my second channel yellow flash productions you can find it on the channels page on my loltube channel go over there and subscribe by doing live streams over there as well already got some content over there right now so if you want to be a part of those head over those two places also check out my patreon if you enjoy my content dollar helps go a long way so bethesda bethesda there was already some scandals with them well not so much scandal since theyre you know taking taken female co-workers into the bathroom or having drug parties as far as i know all i know with them is they are obviously trying to milk as much money as they can out of the products and theres nothing wrong with that you know but its really not the best consumer friendly model right i remember a while ago the big controversy with bethesda was that they werent sending review copies out anymore that they were gonna make theyre pretty much making the people that want to review stuff by the copies and thats fine but what does it say when youre gonna put something out and youre not gonna let anybody review it so you can have the consumer be informed well it says to me that youre not confident in your product fallout 4 was a big disappointment i can think of as far as anticipation that game really let me down nowhere near the masterpiece level of new vegas which they sent to was it aa citizen as a great game fallout 3 was actually pretty good too well for i just didnt like that there were no moral you could make any moral choices and brist i just that wasnt for me part of the thing that i loved about both of those games that you could shape the landscape but anyway fallout 76 will not be available on steam as a new person to the pc master-race im very disappointed by that i love steam steams pretty much all i want to use i was having a golf steam will almost make me not want to buy the game like i was gonna buy overwatch and suck i got to go over this service i dont really want to do that no i really want to do that and now they have a kind of a lame reason why says were gonna have a direct relationship with our players thats a lie dont even say that the reason that youre doing that is because you want to make all the money you dont want to you dont want to give steam a cut you want all the money you know the better practice would be come over to our servers get maybe some free perks you know well give you these were gonna hook you up with a free a free suit and a couple of guns or something and then still offer the choice on steam they dont want to do this because they know if they offer the game on steam its gonna sell gangbusters and no ones gonna no ones gonna no ones gonna go buy it on bethesdas bullshed-ass service which i have no interest in so ill probably be skipping fallout 76 i was already kind of down on it anyway cuz its like thats the kind of the last thing im looking for is a multiplayer game and fallout now i would be cool with a single-player game that had co-op thatd be cool but like one person co-op right kind of like how fallout 5 and 4 did it id be ok that but im not im not interested in this multiplayer century game some of you might be and thats okay you know if thats what youre looking for but my thing was the mods and and stuff so ill probably be skipping this game which is not gonna be a big loss to me the big no the big news though is this and this is just sowing more of their anti-consumer profit for profit over consumerism that theyve been doing bethesda blocks resale of a second-hand game so what happened here is you got this kid hes got like an amazon store and he was selling an unwrapped copy of he was selling an unwrapped copy of the evil within – and but says it comes in and starts talking about theyre going to smack this kid with a lawsuit and make him pay all of the legal fees and you know theyre coming for this kid and its like why why are you doing this you want to know why theyre doing this because they want all the monies they want all the monies and they want to crack down on this they specifically say in the article that we have no problem with pre-owned sales you know well never smack down a pre-owned game sale but if you list the game as new thats a problem and theyre going to talk about the doctrine for how you can sell goods and they say the reason that they can get away with this is because this kid doesnt offer a warranty so if this is going to become the precedent of game company sales and i hope other companies dont fall through with this bethesda just keeps giving themselves a bad name lately with a lot of their crap but i hope this doesnt become the president the president with a lot of game companies because what the flock does it matter if i ok evil within to is kind of like an old im sure you can find it cheap if i were to find 15 copies of evil within two unsealed or sealed up with you know the wrapping all on there its all new game if i want to sell that game lets say i got it for 10 bucks and i want to put it online for 12 i dont know what the game goes for but if i just try to make you know $2 profit off of each copy i dont see what the big deal is they are already gotten the money but it just shows the greed of bethesda how greedy they are its its the wrong move and they just keep pissing people off with their with their choices so im just not i think this is kind of some shed i think this is some shed this is the wrong mood bethesda so the wrong move youre doing this shed with steam and then youre going to block and people from just re sailing in a game because its listed as new because it undercuts your new product that youre selling thats kind of some shed man why dont you knock the price down from your game it just shows that they dont give a damn about what you what you want theyre not out to help you its all about them and you know this is this is the truth for most companies but you should at least try and look like you are pro consumer but whatever let me know what you think about this in the comments

you flock you chinstrap flock you piece of shed flock you alright lets listen to some facebook news

oh my god and your fallout game what im completely online and multiplayer you cant play me offline you cant play me offline bro oh no its garbage fallout 70 ducks is new far as a new game not a fallout game a game created by todd howard using the creation engine you know what ive always wanted a fallout game skyrim dragons reskin and put into the you know the game by setting this game so early in the timeline that could really do whatever the flock they want like lower kind it goes out the window so you know we have things like skyrim dragons and flocking all this new shed you know and created a new faction of intelligent ghouls called the scorched feral ghouls that are not quite so far gone they still know how to use guns so thats essentially our raiders are the scourge the scorch you know the scorch scourge which replaces flocking raiders and shed were very proud of right now that were gonna ship is about 24 people on the server for 230 to 24 people to assault thats no reaction you know what this game sounds like to me it sounds like a bunch of flocking procedurally generated content like all those settlement quests and flocking fallout 4 basically they put multiplayer to it and you know just made a game off of it along with the flocking or the flocking shed the settlement system remember when settlement mode was optional back in fallout 4 todd howard actually said you can sit though in any design meeting and come up with like a list of reasons not to do something hmm you mean like mit and online fallout todd i predict this game will be about shooting enemies and other players building and exploring thats it no actual quests like in the other fallout games just you building shed and basically just being a survival game the game will feature microtransactions but bethesda told us that these were only come in the form of cosmetics we need cosmetics we need microtransactions we need them you orientation before game would you would you talk about but one of the challenges theyve had was to introduce an end game that was hard enough to challenge high level players while also somewhat repeatable what they landed on was a cyclical nuclear war the map of 76 is a number of nuclear bunkers teams of players will have to work together not only to find the nuclear codes but to solve puzzles to reveal them and to push the button to launch the nukes wow nuking the other players is the end goal thats the end goal thats what thats just gonna keep on making people play your game this game is basically they put it out just to make you flocking spend your money on it you know i mean and then just have it die out and like later on in the years you know i mean you know besides just going down the ea route a little bit with this game i give this game a good year and a half before its completely flocking dead after like release fall 976 is a live game meaning that like games like destiny or warframe eventually players are going to reach the point where theyve done most of what there is to do the studio has been working on a team deathmatch mode which should help should help should help theyre gonna add in a flocking paddle way out mode now a hundred percent theyre going to added it its gonna be a small little bank and theres gonna be like death claws and shed that you also have to fight and other creatures and stuff you know what i mean how much do you want to flocking bed each time you level up in fall at 76 you get to pick a new perk card theres a limited amount you can have active at one time meaning that if you want to reroll your characters perks you simply swap out your park cards you can also share park cards within a party meaning that teams of players can specialize to work together more efficiently a new leveling system look at that look at that well what does that make you flocking three now no wait for different leveling systems then fallout games yeah the original fallout yeah fallout 3 new vegas fallout 4 and this new garbage but theres no one youd have to have a new one though because its all like multiplayer but you know i cant wait to see fallout fives brand new leveling system you know you keep on switching up the games right im calling the game garbage because even though its not out yet its not really a fallout game and being a fallout farm i look at it as just a cash grab like the game might be fun to play hell it might be good but it will never be a fallout game its just so flocking different from what a fallout game actually is i never thought id live to see the day it wont fall out had fortnight emotes but hey the game isnt even out yet so it could be a complete flocking masterpiece and i could be completely wrong right now but when the game does come out i will make a follow-up maybe changing some of my opinions i have about the game now but as of now it looks like its gonna be pretty pretty flocking stupid piece

hows it going guys right now youre watching the 4.76 gameplay and yes now their gameplay is out ive got to see about two to three hours of it from there almost many of different gameplays channels on loltube and that people have got their hands on it and as well just showcased it did it look good mmm im not excited im really am not excited i was really hoping for this game to be good but before that how so much that i mentioned as well about my yesterdays video on the fallout 76 down made a comparison im not really comparison but kinda and maybe im made of like it was similarities to having a black was blackout wow balrog yall like more its just pretty much fallout 76 and i agree i was completely wrong about that part but you have to agree to the part and saying like im not even looking forward to this game for example it does not look entertaining or good and this is exactly it the gaint leaders now look entertaining or good and im really am worried about this so ive seen a bunch of gameplays and offers anyway it looks exactly the same as fallout 4 and that it was done a very good video i think was made from an ign surprise surprise ign right and he made it was a lonesome world that you go through i completely agree almost all the part that he has mentioned even though he has played it and i have not ive just seen the gameplay everything ive seen it felt like its just the carrot was not there at the end of the stick what am i going to be going after new codes new nuke nuke the place that i take psych ward three to five minutes until and blows up something and everyone knows that theres gonna be in that area specifically and you couldnt be dropping the sign is detaining is too slow sure i like slow games as well and but no god fallout 76 can be slow i have no problem with that what ive seen the hook is not there its just no entertainment just the hype is not there either my expectation for the game as you might already know was zero when i started watching this game play and guess wheres that zero gone up has it gone up no it has this stays on zero if theres no hype theres no excitement the entertainment level down its just not there now i do want to mention as well at the fact that im not trying to hate on this game this game is gonna be a very good game for some of you guys and i really do appreciate you ive also you know um you know going over on my previous video of the fallout 76 but you know somewhat similar to the bow see how mode of games its gonna be next power yeah sort of thing and youre saying expression expressing your voices and stuff saying like im crazy what the hell am i talking about im say there were some bad comments as well insulting me and everything i completely agree about the battle royale im very sorry that i made it kind of comparison but i will add complete i agree with myself saying that this game is not very promising and i still go to that ward this game isnt looking promising this game looks lonely it looks boring it does not look like its a good to play fine kind of mode which your friends sure you can have a hell of a time i think like you can play together you can do whatever you wish you can build camps do some kind of quests even though they look kind of lame mmm kinda anyway like i think it was a big downfall for an that podesta has decided to completely remove humans interactions you know npcs on human sites that they could give you can quests just basically having a story its just not there sure there are moments that you can do some kind of quest like fetch that go there kill that bring that here you know bring that over there but thats not a quest so you can explore you can find lore you can read those magazines you can go and talk to cole you can talk to some monsters i presumed you can kill those monsters you can do whatever you boys you can talk to machines they can give you kind since maybe some kind of quests as well ive seen of all that but thats not entertaining thats not a part of a story i dont want to be part of the game that is just no story into it like why am i here you know am i here only just to level up up up up up and play with my friends sure thats a cool thats a cool move i like it dont get me wrong i have one more incentive and coming from like maybe im just spoiled maybe from all the games i have played they were granted us much more variety in the gameplay this does not look like it not to mention this walton nuke howie all you know comes down and blows up that area it looks cool doesnt look very good though but it looks good im not gonna deny that now you can go down there you can explore make sure you have your armor you know not to kill yourself from the nuke at the exposure you know radiation and theres gonna be high-level monsters roaming around and high-level gears you can actually acquire thats not the carrot im talking about because in whatever you do end up getting a better gear on wherever i is that really enough for you guys thats my real question as well the engine is well its exactly identical to fallout 4 the customization on the character that you can make and create your own is exactly the same unfortunately i believe so i already have mentioned the ign actually made like a lonely some video and impressions i think that did a very good job of expressing and you know impressions opinion that he is you know gave us his truth and that was a very good and very well done video i believe so i will leave down links below for that video specifically if you have not seen it yet but i agree a lot of points what he mentioned just this game it doesnt look very promising in my opinion im brie im sorry guys im just not trying to hate on this gameis again and i want to express my own true feelings and what i actually think about this game its just the hype is not there from me anyway and im well well i was also looking for a lot of comments on loltube you know what people think on subreddit twitter you know all over the place all over the social media and i i think they agree with some parts of what i mentioned in this video it just doesnt look very promising like this yet its just saying like im gonna skip out on this way 4 for 5 with 4 star field or the next elder scrolls its just is just theres no carrot on that end of the stick theres no variety you all you do is just go out there do some kind of knife and quests more like side quests fetch me dad kill that bring that wherever and with your friends no that dont get me wrong its fun with your friends is always fun playing around but how many games have already done this maybe im just looking at this a very negative way and i just want to apologize i just i didnt i really want to make this such a negative type of video and like losing so much hope in this game i just wanted to express my own true feelings about this i just also want to mention im sorry my voice is breaking up with yall but im kangas im getting a sick a little bit im really im sorry about that ok well i think im done that just i want to hear you guys from you please tell me down in the comments one is your real truth of this game that you have seen so far of the gameplay the gameplay what did you think truthfully now you do not like it flock the game tell me that thats cool id like to read those things even though you told me very bad things from the previous video even though i was quit a few parts i was right anyway just tell me if you thought im crazy and you will really like what you saw thats cool please tell me the comments um definitely well be reading every one of yours and i will reprise that while we pry and i will reply to all of them as well anyway well i dont think im done now please like and subscribe i really do appreciate you guys now before i also end this video i want to mention that tomorrow i am actually going to have a review on assassins creed odyssey and that review it took time for me to make but yes i think its gonna be worth it because its a special type of video i think i did anyway i really hope you guys take a look at that just make sure you hit that bell annotation – and not miss that specific video but im still gonna have a few other videos popping up in the future as well and yeah anyway i was just wanna apologize one last time im really sorry im brilliant sorry that this video and drop being a little bit too negative and i just want to express my true feelings about this game what ive seen so far sure my my opinion may change in future or in few months until games releases but right now thats this is what i think as ive just said anyway well im going to let you go have an awesome day guys i really do appreciate it huge again on my channel and my videos and yeah have a wonderful day

hey guys whats up its me francis yeah and i wanted to do a little reaction video to a – to the new fallout 76 trailer okay because i would show you the trailer like a lot of people doing reaction videos but i dont want to get copy strike like they did pewdiepie okay so im not gonna do it off because i dont want to get a copy strikes ill tell you the trailer makes the game look pretty good yeah in trailers watch it its a real good trailer for longevity sex and it looks like a real it looks like a real fallout gaming if you watch the trailer five or six times that i watch the strip ten times if you only watch it five or six times youll pick up on stuff like reclamation day its a day that they all leave the vault for the first time okay and this is only 25 years after the big warts this is like right at the beginning of fallout history did you like before any other game seemed to take place you know thats dummy really started big game this game looks really good i like fallout okay i want to play this game i mean dont get me wrong todd howard i would rather be playing a new elder scrolls game but like he says you got out of smokes online thatll tide you over for the next decade or two or whatever till francis is flockin dead then well make the new game next when i got to thinking back when they were defending elders choice online being the only way to do all destroys anymore they said they didnt like single player games much anymore they dont want to publish that no more they wanted to move into games is this service they wanted to be able to sell you microtransactions and subscription fees and expansions they dont want you to play a game for a little while they want you to play that game until youre dead of course i try to explain to todd that you know if he makes a new outer scroll game every couple of years i will buy that and i will buy some dlc for it – and who make just as much money if not more but for some reason that goes right over his flocking head did you see that fly fly by did you see him im gonna get you im gonna get you got him but thats when i used my brain and i figured it out it theyre not gonna put out a new elder storge relations in the online game then why would they put out a fallout game alright if this was in the core series we were called fallout 5 not fallout 76 okay this is some bullshed online game i said that on twitter theyre making now francesc theres no way theres no way this is gonna be a core game well you say that in the comment section below and you come back here after iii and see what a dumbass you look like cuz this is not gonna be a core game its gonna be some battle royale thing its gonna be a flockin card game or worse maybe like some online survival piece of shed well you know whats really interesting about this by the way theyre advertising this game already okay and if you go to the patels your website you can order you can pre-order this game as of right now nobody even knows what the game is they havent even said what the game is or you can still buy it dont you think you should be able to at least know what the flocking game is before you put your money down i mean i know theres people out there stupid enough to do it alright but todd howard you shouldnt be such an asshole that youll take their money oh but francis im a fallout farm ill buy anything but fallout on it i dont even wait for the reviews you think im gonna wait to see what this flocking game is i dont have a camera – its all out i dont know if that was a rock and dont get me wrong im gonna buy it – okay im gonna fall out farm – im just as flocking stupid all right but im at least gonna wait to find out what that game is before i put my credit card information into a website dont you think that at least do that well i said even honestly be mad at todd howard for trying at this point you know they probably got 20,000 50,000 pre-orders right now hes probably plenty of people out there with more money than they got since ok so go ahead todd howard do whatever you want but you mark my words okay the game that you pre-ordered its not a core entry to the series okay its gonna be a guarantee what its gonna be its gonna be some sort of base building survival game minecraft clone okay so i hope you enjoy it i hope you enjoy ill be a joint i mean im gonna enjoy this i mean that would be pretty fun honestly the base building in game was pretty fun you know im just saying come back and you know im right you sons of batches

from the future [music] cheeseduck intro aside what are we gonna talk about today well today were going to talk about fallout 76 now i have a number of issues with fallout 76 but the first one and the most pedantic one would have to be the fact that its named fallout 76 now this runs into two categories one is the point that fall 76 implies that there was 75 other ones now this of course might end up actually being true in the future because well i mean as time progresses and as people continue to play watered-down sheddy games their brains become youll continue to become retracted and stunted and circumsized and therefore just eating it all up and fallout will just have a large series of flocking mobile games and nobody will flock and give a shed anymore but yes i know that most of you really but its based on evolved fault 76 well yeah i mean thats true and this runs into my second reason why the name is stupid and that is ultimately is the whole game take place in valle 76 well no it doesnt and therefore why the flock name it after the vault lame why dont we just name the skyrim online i mean elder scrolls online why do i would just name it after some random flocking cave in the game like in fact why dont just call it random cave the game like that thats ultimately the same logic its flocking retracted so but thats pedantic i know who cares right its just a random little nitpick all right reason two is that this is on is fallout on line 2.0 yes 2.0 i say this because interplay had already or interscope or who is an airplane earscope knows interplay yeah and her scope is a record company anyway in a play had already started making a fallout online and because of some pedantic ass flocking legal loophole flocking the nesta was able to take control of an entire ip that they never flocking created namely and fallout so at the end of the day like its kind of like a final nail in the coffin for interplay like a final batch-slap if you will because this 576 now i want to point out though to the what fallout is and this is another point that i have it is fallout is and has always been or at least was originally a role-playing game a single-player experience now you might be saying well how do you know like theres some stupid shed like heres the thing okay fog was originally named fallout a post-apocalyptic role-playing and those who literally literally the flocking title okay sue is fallout 2 theres literally literally the title okay so then you have fallout 4 which is just a watered-down mess where the shooting was flocking ultimately made by people from bungie which speaks volumes in of itself they attempted to ripoff mass effect 2 did a terrible flocking job and what i mean by that is actually the the dialogue system and then they threw in some flocking minecraft and some flocking call of duty level perk system nonsense by removing skills entirely so they ultimately the end of the day like theres nothing i can say about the festa thats going to be positive here in respect to fallout nothing because we follow for which shed so what do i expect fallout 76 to be other than basically fought for online so its its its kind of bothersome to me personally and you have to understand too if youre coming at this from the perspective of i play fallout 3 and then the rest of them just like really they come on ok look cuz i hate it whenever you got these all these flocking fallout fans and their first flocking game was fallout 3 im sitting here like are you flocking kidding me like youre gonna call yourself a farm and then youre going to pick bethesdas first attempt at watering down an entire franchise youre gonna pick that as your as your essence as the basis of your argument in respect to fall out like i watch this video the other day what this guy was talking about fell out 76 and and because this is this is this whole thing is a game unfold right so i was watching this guys video obviously well i started out playing fob 3 in the new vegas and then for baba and im like cool did you ever play fallout 1 did you ever play fallout 2 no oh okay well then your opinion is kind of irrelevant and i know you might be saying letus ism and your damn flocking straight so the other thing and the last thing the final nail on the coffin so to speak for bethesda here is that they just batched about dice making an online-only game they literally just finished by my group of mine at the time it was hypocritical anyway because of skyrim online elder scrolls online but also it was its even more hypocritical because then they decided they were gonna then flocking be like oh were making fallout online i mean they come on like im here are you flocking kidding me like is this is this is this a joke this has got to be a prank because like if you like the thing is fallout only exists realistically within fallout 1 and 2 and new vegas fallout 3 by the way isnt terrible its mediocre but it was an obvious attempt to water down the franchise and and i think partially a lot of large issues a large part of it is is it literally due to laziness and to approach the largest common denominator to get the most possible buck another thing is you have to understand is that people who are hardcore fans of fallout are because thought one is kids is put in the same light as baltars games as in being the most influential rpg of all time same with baldurs gate alright you have to understand that those two games are the grandfathers of every single rpg that ever followed the fact alone that we got all these whiny flocking munts youre like i dont want to think about all these numbers is representative of realistically how much valued largest common denominator has it is representative at the point that they dont even deserve the came that theyre being fed they dont deserve to play fallout because theyre too flocking stupid to comprehend what two plus two equals theyre too flocking retracted like it again yeah this is elitist ism you damn straight if you cant do flocking basic math you really shouldnt be playing rpgs because if you do then skyrim is just for you or how about zelda the 3d versions that give you flocking little tutorials in the very beginning of the game because they assume youre too flocking stupid to figure it out on your own so i think of the day like you can sit here and you can you can say like you can you can just complain about fallout 76 if you want and because im doing it too but honestly speaking if youre not coming from the elitist perspective the hardcore perspective im not even going to listen to your flocking opinion and the reason im not going to listen to your opinion even if it supports mine its primarily due to the point that all youre going to do is try to make fallout like fallout 3 or worse youre gonna try and push fulop to be more like fallout 4 which is fundamentally one of the worst games i have ever played in my life i mean the very fact alone i could use vats before i even believe it like just at random like before i can even get the flocking pip boy is ridiculous the notion that the pip boy doesnt do this is ridiculous i mean like is this some magical flocking power now is is my character in every single character that i played prior to playing fallout 4 and it are they just flocking are they just like bestowed this one magic power are you serious because keep in mind fallout wanted to also have the same ability three called it even in name they called it vats so basically at the end of the day the whole point is simply this fall of 76 fundamentally is a complete shed concept it is hypocritical is a final is its a slap in the face to the very reason fill out even existence in the first place and this is ignoring the point that fallout is actually a a flocking spin-off or a spin-off rather any flocking numb spiritual successor to wasteland so this is ignoring that entirely the point is this the festa just wants your money they make broken sheddy ass flocking games the laziest way possible flocking cookie cutter nonsense just so you can poke the flocking button and get the corn you flocking tool

fault 76 is gonna be i believe no micro job that whoa what the flock am i talking about i was looking for something else i was looking for the multiplayer aspect to it what was it i had it loaded up i dont know where the flock is i dont know what the flock it is yeah but as the recently confirmed a couple days ago that fall at 76 is entirely online now what oh flockin in hell god damn it and you know look fleets and longtime listeners i dont know if you remember this fleets but i said a long time ago and fall up before fallout 4 even came out i dont even think you were working or working with me but if people go back i told people early on that the death of fallout the death note was really gonna be when they went online and i warned everybody and fallout 4 dont flock with that game because the second you do youre given bethesda incentive that fallout that fallout should go multiplayer because the second they put in that minecraft bullshed that building element is this it was this gigantic red flag when i went oh dear god theyre gonna make fallout multiplayer and sure enough everybody talked shed everybody told me i was wrong flock all that cuz i was right i told everybody this the thesz is gonna flock this up and put it to multiplayer and thats exactly what theyve done and i just cannot agree with it because now fallout his turn has transformed from a single-player isolated experience where you were actually the hero of the wasteland to an online multiplayer survival adventure ooh what would i rather play because online multiplayer survival adventure game how many of those exist in the ether of video games right now pleats what a number now how many quality isolated single-player experiences do we really get that come from big studios not a lot no not really not much especially if we type of not a lot to blame most of the ones that i call triple-a once they ever call the ones a mostly that i can remember that are good or indeed cannot supply this is just its a gigantic problem for me and i know a lot of other people yourself included you and i disagree on this man which is why i wanted to talk to you about this topic because its actually interesting to talk about cuz you and i have a differing opinion you still are willing to get it im telling people dont flocking touch this thing we already gamers we already flocked up allowing fallout 4 to make money now bethesda has it in their head that its ok to go this way youre okay with im getting game for a different reason and its not even is its not even a game i plan to get i have to wait that suckers on sale for really little price before i actually be like okay im gonna get it my reason is is its all based on pettiness because because my family was raised in west virginia any game thats kind of based on a place that im familiar with in real life i like going there to see and hey whats what what do they do that was different is what they said theyve portrayed is actually portrayed accurately okay this is the video game what youre not gonna get them most of the time oh yeah of course unless youre talking about assassins creed and and the historical accuracy outside of story and what actually happened within it yeah theres very few games that are lord loyal hows that dynasty warriors in total war no specific games that we all cite as the major big ones but i get your point also your point if thats petty of shed and i know and i love the fact that you know this one or something you want know something about fallout 76 i dont like yeah thats thats what this is just turning into shed i dont like about fallout 76 or white trash people one of the things that im just not keen on with fall 76 outside of the big spiel i just went on when you die in fall at 76 you dont lose your items but you just simply respawn at a nearby location so what happened is pete hines the senior vice president and game director todd howard they both confirm that theres no death punishment and i go in my mind i just go are you out of your flocking mind why what the flock man you got to lose something is theres no theres no death penalty theres not a money penalty are you kidding i dont get it i i dont i dont understand why theres no death penalty of any type there should be some type of penalty for dying in a game when its a game thats thats bait when a games promoted as a survival adventure shouldnt staying alive beyond one of your number one it should be your number one on your list of things to do in a survival wasteland environment adventure game thats promoting that you stay alive and flock around the pve monster environment then you can also flocking play against people flock me this is ridiculous its just its just upsetting its upsetting because ive been playing fallout for a long time and the way its going now is utterly disappointed i just dont like it i cant i cant really say anything else about it its just dumb i just feel that if you dont punish somebody for dying then it just no no what why should they care fallout it doesnt even sound like fallout anymore hi there im rum and apples and youre watching an end card i know its stupid they should probably subscribe like click the bell thing and then click another video thats floating around the video screen i cant promise its gonna be good although i should promise that however i can keep talking and just get trapped forever in a loltube video move click something no seriously click something click

what up loltube i wanted to rant today and make a video about why i think fallout 76 its gonna be trash my main complaint has to do with the weaponry now previously in the fallout 76 series i started playing a fallout 3 so thats where im gonna start speaking from in fallout 3 a lot of the guns were trash and throw aways but you get energy weapons almost immediately and you can actually build your character around those energy weapons and theyre actually decent and in fallout 3 youre actually role-playing that when you have a conversation it doesnt show your character and break immersion fallout 4 ruins that this is why they started using the tricky wording of single-player dangers right were gonna still make single-player games yeah youre gonna make single-player games but before you made role-playing games see the difference like there are tons of single-player games that arent necessarily role players right i have a problem with them changing in that vernacular because its deceiving and what theyre actually doing is breaking all immersion from role-playing and just given you single player games and fallout 4 but notwithstanding my main complaint is the guns alright so lets say fallout 4 is in the year twenty to forty seven that is over 200 and what almost 20 years from now right yet the best gun that you can get in the game is the ak-47 made in 1947 almost a hundred years in our past 300 years old in fallout 4 three hundred years old that should be a starting throwaway gun not the absolute best gun you can get in the game from the nuclear world dlc that should be a throwaway gun but what do you have mostly pipe pistols and crowbars they give you a minigun right away but they lowered its damage so much that its useless and i think nobody would disagree to that even if you maximize in too many guns you can barely get 16 damage per hit out of the thing and thats late-game in other words its useless most of the guns in here are useless most of the melee weapons in here are useless look at fallout 3 with mothership zeta extremely viable guns man and tons of them tons you go to a mothership zeta you wont be able to walk out of there without a packed inventory and you will throw away every gun you brought there because there are nothing compared to the energy weapons you get tons of ammo its crazy it is crazy what you get and in fallout 3 you could go to the pit dlc and theres a cool melee weapon its like a saw i forget what its called right now its been a long time viable even in late-game viable in late-game and fallout there are very few weapons that are actually viable you got the tommy gun that has an explosive thing you get from whats that six name right outside of that vault where you get the overseers guardian the overseers guardian that explosive tommy gun pickmans blade the ak-47 and the cutlass you get from nuka world are just about the only good weapons in fallout 4 most of the time i play on xbox because at least there you have modern firearms mod and it adds all our modern firearms which are 200 years old to them you know and but it still makes it better at least we have many more viable guns now my argument would be the guns that are in mass production now are the guns that if nuclear bombs hit right now we would have tons of these guns laying around aks and 16a our platform guns because thats what we currently make tons of different types of pistols and all sorts of other guns would be around a nuclear bomb isnt going to just delete them from our reality thats not even possible ok so war war never changes and they show dudes walking down the street free war and what do you see them carrying energy weapons wearing power armor now explain to me why after the bombs dropped we come out with pipe pistols pipe pistols its insulting its insulting to anyone with a brain you know i mean theres been nuclear events on this and on our planet and theyve killed millions of people in towns all the guns that were there are still in those places theyre not just deleted from reality thats not how like itll delete people but its not gonna delete guns only if theyre in like a one-mile radius where the temperature gets a million degrees maybe it might burn them maybe not but regardless its not just gonna delete them all from the world theres still the gun thats in mass production pipe pistols are whats not in mass production that doesnt even make any sense those would be everywhere okay so lets get forward to fallout new vegas now i know the bethesda wasnt the main producer maker of this game but still its in the fallout franchise and as far as i know its canon and in there oh my god so many viable weapons you can play them any stage of the game still viable think about lonesome road dlc big mountain which is my favorite look how many cool weapons there are leer and tesla cannons i mean it is just bananas think about the gun runners arsenal hyper fusion micro breeder whatever the heck it was called thats my favorite pistol dont even need ammo for it rapid fire pistol amazing amazing fallout 76 its just all turned into trash yeah most of the time youre just looking for any gun thats decent any gun i mean you could get a pipe pistol with like an explosive thing on it and thats what youre fighting with so im fighting 200 years in the future with like civil war equivalent guns i dont want to play fallout assassins creed civil war thats flocking stupid man i dont care what anyone says i play future games to have future weapons right i mean i dont play future games to have past weapons and almost every clip ive seen of fallout 76 gameplay is so flintlocks pipe pistols pipe revolvers that its insulting its absolutely insulting to have a game in the future and have all those past weapons now melee weapons i could understand because a tomahawk is always gonna be a tomahawk its always the same level of useless usefulness right theres no melee weapon thats superseding what a tomahawk can do but a flintlock every projectile weapon including a bow and arrow can pretty much supersede a flintlock weapon so explain to me why why theres to be gonna be flintlock weapons like what does this fall out pirates of the carribean theres gonna be flintlock weapons and and and theres no bow that doesnt even make any sense like a bow would be more viable in that case because that anyone can make a bow and arrow you dont have to get powder it does it just it boggles the mind like theyre gonna have primitive weapons but not the more viable primitive weapons like blunderbusses and crap dude that is crap i dont care what i dont care i love im one of the biggest fallout fans and i always have been i put thousands of hours into almost every one of their games ever since fallout 3 and it absolutely hurts my feelings to see this franchise go down the drains the weapons which is half alright this game is its an rps role-playing shooter both of those things in that definition have been ruined recently since fallout 4 fallout 4 its no longer role-playing in any choice you choose takes you to the same thing right like so if they give you a choice you know anything that you say to them out of the four choices it shows on screen this has been shown time and time again many loltubers have shown this any choice you choose choose goes to the same dialogue they might have a little bit of different thing that they say but it gives you to the same place theres no role-playing there is zero role-playing so that part of rps is out and fallout 76 looks just like it right everything theyve shown gives me no reason to believe its absolutely any different in the slightest so the role-playing is out well okay so its a role-playing shooter what about the shooter aspect well that turned into trash too because in a shooter you at least want good guns right well thats all turned into trash now too because you dont even have good guns you have civil war and previous to the civil war guns lets flintlock pistols have been around since 15 1600s man why are we using that in the game two hundred years in our future over two hundred years and i dont care fallout 76 is a hundred years before new vegas that should that would only mean that there would be more of these energy rifles fusion rifles and all of that crap still around that would only mean that there would be more of them less of it would be destroyed or used up or broken or had been in combat i mean there would be factories where there would be just tons of the stuff the aek was made in 1947 and the the bullets from the ak-74 6 2 by 3 9 there are war houses out there with a billion rounds in it of that of that ammo which would still be there after a nuclear attack billions of rounds why do we have to make every bullet that we so we get its so bogus though it is so bogus also are we gonna be forced into power armour fallout 70 or fallout 4 ruined power armor in my opinion before power armor was just an armor youd wear it and and its just like any other armor it didnt require a fusion core or a power frame ever since it required a power frame now all of a sudden its a real pain in the butt to get into power armor to get out of it you want to change something your armor you have to get back out other people can get in it if you go underwater you can actually lose your power armor if you cant get out because it doesnt work right underwater slows your movement down there are so many factors about power armor that in my opinion completely destroyed power armor and it looks like fallout 76 is gonna force us into power armor if you want to be viable for the pvp combat youre gonna have to wear power armor it becomes probably gonna be the strongest armor in the game and youre just not gonna be able to withstand the onslaught of trolls without it which i think completely i mean if it didnt have enough nails in its coffin this is really just gonna trash it now on 476 to be fair i did see the 2 millimeter energy rifle but that has always been a throwaway for me every single game of aw that i ever played and theres that that rifle ive never bothered because its absolute trash its trash it fires so slow listen when we make advances in gun not only a flintlock would not be inferior to an ak-47 if it didnt have its low of a fire rate the whole reason that we got bullets all in you no primer shell all one bullet instead of just the cat the firing cathy and then the powder and the round all separate that was an advancement to speed up its fire rate now if if we didnt if there wasnt the case you know the street no we dont use bows because not everyone could fire that as fast if it wasnt the case then we would that way we wouldnt consider that an advancement and they wouldnt produce it you know theres not gonna be an iphone 10 and its got to be shedtier than the iphone one right my point being that why would you have an energy rifle like that two millimeter number one it takes up half the screen which i cannot stand they dont got the proper perspective when youre running around with a gun youre not holding it against your cheek all the time i mean but the perspective that in first person is just ridiculous with a lot of these guns they dont even get that but that two millimeter shoots just as slow as that flintlock pistol so whats the point then you tell me other than be an energy weapon that costs you way more to actually fire the thing so its all downsides almost it might do some more damage it might not i dont know because they showed people in power armors it seems like thatd be pretty late game right you got power arm you got the supposed to best armor in the game yet they still have pipe revolvers and pipe pistols what is that mean that means that basically what we have to look forward to that the best guns in the game are our pipe pistols and revolvers and crap if thats the case im not even gonna buy this game its stupid i dont i dont play past games but mostly its all future for me if i cant you know i dont look towards the past as as coolness that much right who does i mean theres some coolness in there right like you know shinobis and samurais and shed in a period thats dope right but the problem is is that that would be in the period right whereas these games are not in the period even so say flintlock was cool in the pirate days well this aint the pirate days these are the days where we already know the tons of different energy weapons exist we know that theres an aliens out there with all these dopes energy weapons and when you do that dlc you bring back you know a hundred of these things right so its like once you know that the stuff exists that flintlock isnt cutting it man and we all know that they exist these are just a few of my problems with fallout 76 but uh i mostly want her to address the weapons issue and i just dont see how its gonna be fun how is that gonna be fun running around with such crappy weapons its like monster hunter with flintlocks you know whats up the gun and thats exactly what it looks like monster hunter you know you get four people and you go kill the big baddies look just like monster hunter fall out but monster hunter had cooler weapons yeah way cooler weapons man the melee weapons dope every one of them looks amazing giant swords the bow is huge even the cannons and they dont even take it long to reload as the flintlocks and they do you know the same amount of damage to the monsters in the game so i just really dont get it i think its gonna be bogus and im hoping that im wrong if thats the police prove me wrong but every every single thing that theyve said has given me reason to believe that they are in fact and not gonna prove me wrong every clip ive seen its just so much you know and another thing is is youre not even gonna be as if as if it wasnt bad enough that you got all these bogus weapons and theyre not gonna feel powerful in that way in the other games you could keep gaining perks until youre maxed out fallout new vegas maxed out at 50 with all the deal seeds i dont remember what fallout 3 was maybe 30 maybe 40 50 i dont really remember its been a while and then in fallout 4 here you could go up to like 380 i think its max level youll have everything in all the skill trees but look how powerful you get even notwithstanding that the weapons are basically sheddy at least you get fast firing big capacity guns late-game like this but this is from a mod of course because itd be almost impossible to get this gun in real game but notwithstanding you get that powerful and have 200 year old guns in fallout 76 youre maxed out on the perks you can have at level 50 through park cards you can only have a certain amount in each category 15 points per stat right whatever it be in the special 15 points worth of cards in each one so even though you can keep leveling i dont i dont know what the max cap is even though you keep leveling what difference does it make your perks are maxed out so youre not even gonna get that powerful so there nerfing you in several ways the guns took a real node dive right into the ground to 2 to 300 years old guns from fallout times 300 year old gold i mean a flintlock pistol in the fallout in the 2200 year plus its a six seven hundred year old gun six or seven hundred years old and youre telling me that those are gonna be less rare than the energy weapons that were in mass production at the time of the fallout go flock yourself bethesda go flock yourself okay and then they nerf you on your perch too i understand this pvp game they got to find some way but both ways thats literally every way that they can nerf your character and make them just i mean were gonna feel like were playing with like our grandparents you know like a 80 year old woman running around you know shes all crippled up shes got a walker with a flintlock strapped to the front of her walker with tennis balls on the pads there i mean are you flocking shedting me its insulting man it really is insulting i think thatll do for todays rant but i gotta say but thats not i dont know where your head is going it really doesnt make any sense its like i heard todd howard say well my idea was that every player could be a real player a real life person and then everything else is just like we had no ideas for it you know like whatever we can do to just sort of make them feel like its a were doing something here it just doesnt feel that way to me im sorry im a highly opinionated person however i do think that these opinions are hold water they do have merit and it just bugs me because i have been a die-hard farm a loyal supporter and i just feel like at every turn they crap on theyre real fans and try to bring in new fans that they dont even know what these guys want you know well we know that theres a big pvp market yeah okay but crap on your fans and literally you know we get a fallout game every 10 years or whatever it might be and theyre gonna spend that time and make this pvp game theyre not gonna go to their their core following thats a bit insulting too its like okay but dont call it fallout you know im saying its like little wayne said about mobile rappers okay but dont call it rap call it something else you know call it future past with flintlocks you know call it that that would be excusable for me but when you take the franchise that i love and turn it into crap its not i cant just thats hard to swallow you know what i mean its like imagine if when whats-her-name from who wrote the harry potter books she made the new harry potter movies still in the same harry potter universe same dynamic you know cool animals cool magic sane universe well why do i feel like they tried to pull a bait and switch they call it fallout but its not the same universe never in a fallout game has there been a flintlock pistol never never not as far as i know i started playing at three so there might been and wanted to but those look like pretty much trash anyway so i just feel like its a total bait and switch its not its not rps its not role-playing shooter its not role-playing and its barely a shooter so its just a total bait and switch its just a total crapping on every one of their loyal diehard fans and then its taking you know we all dont have ten years more to live to wait for another flippin game you know which is why on a fallout 76 he announced oh well we got starfield in an elder scrolls 6 in the thing you had to mention that or you knew people were gonna lose their minds because you just spent the last two years developing a game and in the franchise that had nothing to do with any of the franchise from before barely barely even the same universe barely its only the same universe because you wanted to use the same engine and style almost you know and you already got that made not be you know and so it really i dont know man it just drives me nuts it drives me bonkers thats most of what i have to say sorry if this came off a little bit harsh to anyone i know i can be very opinionated im very outspoken but uh thats how i feel i feel like its a big slap in the face from todd howard and bethesda sorry but i mean hey im a true farm ive been one for a long time and if you dont want to hear what i got to say thats fine but its like you know where the core that you expect to buy the game and to get everyone else interested well i gotta say im barely looking forward to it its almost like in such an insult that im almost looking past it like okay so whens the real fallout gonna be out but after fallout 4 i really am not sure it might have just they might have killed themselves fallout franchise might have killed themselves because that were no longer playing future games im playing with a hundred-year-old weapon in a game 200 years from now a 300 year old weapon in this timeline 300 years name another game like that name one even if they you know we used boats for thousands of years theyre not using a 300 year old bow well in here were actually using a 300 year old gun its unbelievable it if people survived the nuclear war theyre gonna survive with the i with the known technologies at the time believe it or not if they have the known technology to continue to build gunpowder which was a lucky discovery how come they dont have the known technology to keep building energy ammo or energy weapons it doesnt make any sense when this stuff would be everywhere electronic components metals elements are gonna be everywhere you know i mean theres mr. handy look at the full up for intro oh you know unprecedented you know developments sit boys and mr. handys and you know nuclear cards and all this and now and now were back to flintlocks not realistic sorry thats my opinion im sorry if people dont agree id like to hear your opinions in the comments below what do you think if you agree or disagree but i think ive made my case and there are more things i have to say that i probably didnt cover because i get pretty passionate about this subject i spend a lot of time playing these games i mean i really look forward to a new fallout and now i got away six eight years who knows how long for the next one and i dont know if im gonna live that long so it just bugs me to no end so thanks fallout for practically destroying a franchise that i loved and had so much potential and not even understanding the core dynamics of your own games and the categorization of your own games role-playing shooter its no longer role-player its no longer a shooter im ronen barricade thank you for listening and im out peace

what the rpg is i dont care about the magic bullshed explanation from a gameplay perspective it looks dumb it feels really dumb and goofy and lazy and this is a bad implementation of that its like honestly just felt stupid using it because it was so dumb and so cheesy and yes you can use this in pvp as well as pve on top of this were just myriad bugs that i found there was this awesome moment where we found like god rays coming up from the ground which we nicknamed todd rays where is that light coming from like look at this like can i just ask okay tell me where that light is coming from okay its like you know what todds like you know if people like god raised god raised out of the flocking earth the water was totally flocked i dont know just bad ok by the way guys were back at some water were back at the water in case you missed out this is the water ok moment ago we had the todd raised now we have the water enemies would just appear randomly or disappear they behave super weirdly theyd get caught behind things whatever else theres so much popping in this game as well like i know its not a bug i know its more of a graphical thing but youre just walking around and then all of a sudden boom just so much shed just pops im in front of you youre like where the fun and all that come from ok so like as i said i dont make these videos often i do and im not the kind of guy that wants to like you know fearmonger around you know of some upcoming game or whatever else when ive only put so little time into it but this games out in 15 days this is one of the worst betas ive ever played in my entire time playing video games and its from bethesda theyre one of the biggest most well resourced companies in the world when it comes to video game development they can do a hell of a lot better than this and they have absolutely not done this and now there are no models to save them because the mods dont come for at least another year theres microtransactions theyre already in guys but all this other stuff that ive talked about thats not in yet you know like field-of-view slide oh no no no no microtransactions yes filled a few slider youll have to wait for them do you mean i think its really sheddy i think that anyone that has their pre-order available i would strongly recommend cancelling it if youd still like to get the game later on shell fine but wait for reviews and wait till you see a good chunk of this play out if you really like this experience cool good on you thats great i personally think that the product here is substandard yes you might be able to make your own fun in this game but the game itself seems pretty incidental to what that fun will end up being because right now it is a very rocky very barren very broken product and i dont see 15 days as being enough to turn this around and end you know make it a real product that is gonna be like yeah cool this is worth $60 $60 by the way like if this was worth $30 like most those are the sandbox of all the games id be like ok fair enough lets just do this but $60 for this it just seems like robbery and you know maybe theres a whole bunch of other stuff out there that comes later on but i do not think the fundamentals are there i would very strongly caution people against pre-ordering this the pc port is terrible its atrocious and i really hope that you know it gets a lot better anyway let me know what you think in the comments below i will see you guys later [music] thousand bucks or whatever on a computer i did so flocking bad like incredibly bad like i so bad that im making a video on it right now yeah so i dont really do a lot of impressions or preview videos i generally like to make sure a game is out and ive played a lot of it before i speak about it but ive played the fallout 76 beta on pc just then for four hours and i played about two and a half hours of the xbox version before and i just really feel the need to put this video out based upon how unbelievably garbage this game is shaping up from at least a performance perspective and thats separate from my own personal view on some of the gameplay and design elements so lets talk about the technical first and then we can talk about the gameplay second because i think thats a bit more subjective my rig is a geforce gtx 1080 ti its got a i seven five eight to zero okay its got 32 you ram its got everything its im a this is what i do for a living so ive invested a lot of money in my computer its a good computer so i started trying to run this in windowed mode at ultra settings at 2560 by 1440 and i couldnt get any more than around about 20 to 25 frames while i was doing that so then i dropped all the settings and eventually got it down to like you know medium settings and it still wasnt great and then i had to switch it over to full-screen mode and at that point when i had the game on medium settings running a full screen i could then get it to around about 30 maybe 35 frames per second thats atrocious given how good my system is now will make the very important point that your mileage may vary because i know other stories of people who had fantastic performance or at least pretty good shroud i heard was streaming it he got like 120 frames and dropped down to 80 some times but hes on an rt x 20 atti which is obviously just like another step up right the fact that he dropped down to 80 frames at all on a game like this a game engine this old just shows you how sheddy this is okay and thats before we start talking about you know how it runs on consoles where it was literally getting down to 12 or 13 frames according to digital foundry and their analysis so from a very basic level of consistent frame rate performance this is already a huge red flag for this game number two as someone who has a pc i have an ultra-wide monitor theres no ultra wide support in this whatsoever i did not see any options for managing my refresh rate so that i have a 144 hertz monitor and it just seemed like it was locked 60 hertz unless theres some option that becomes available when i have something specific plugged into and it didnt like my monitor or something that was not available for me and so i was stuck at 60 hertz even though ive got a monitor that does a hell of a lot more than that theres a very limited number of graphical settings available to you and no field of view option like no field of view at all and what ive learned is well which was discovered by the reddit is that your ui is actually tied to your field of view so if you try and manually change the ui in the backend itll actually just push the ui elements off-screen so you cant do that theres no workaround available for that at all no field of view available in this its just this is crazy to be honest the very fact that my machine is not able to run this game that runs on an engine that is like nearly a decade old is ridiculous like its truly ridiculous and even when it does run it looks like ass on the xbox when i play this i was stunned and i was like man this looks like a ps2 game some of the textures that i saw some of the foliage that i saw was so bad it looked like a ps2 game this is water right here your that guys look at those effects beautiful stunning 2018 oh magnifique yeah but i thought all right theyre trying to do something with the consoles theyre trying to push something i dont know lets just given the better for the doubt maybe whatever i thought of pc its gotta be better it looked better but not by much look at this water by the way this was the same on consoles look at this water guys its 2018 and this is the water effects that we get look at it look mario sunshine had better water and water effects so often i was just walking around this game and i was just remarking how ugly it looked like it looks flocking ugly and i dont care about graphics that much but i do care about laziness and i guess i care about these graphics in the context of how bad this performance is and how little has effort it seems has gone into this game the other thing ill say is that no effort has been made whatsoever to take the clearly console specific controller scheme and do away with that and make it so that you can play this for this game fully on a keyboard and mouse as you play this game you will discover so many buttons are used needlessly because they have not taken the time to develop a proper pc ui and thats perfectly exemplified during the build phase right when you put down a cabin you got to build things theres all this this really cumbersome menu where i need to use the z key and the c key to change something i need to use the arrow keys up and down to change things theres literally a keyboard and mouse that im holding in my flocking hand and im not allowed to use it i need to like press these weird keys to scroll through options because they were too lazy to take the console controllers and and provide me with something like they should have provided when im using a keyboard and mouse i got so mad at that point when i was playing that when i saw how lazy that controller but uisce framework was i like it to pause for 30 seconds to compose myself i was like are you actually flocking serious so thats that and i think thats a lot of the technical aspects out the way knight lonely people gonna say hey man its a beta right its coming out and 15 days or whatever but dont worry theyll change all of this bullshed theyre not gonna change dont change a few things but the stuff that im talking about there a little of that is gonna change before launch and even if you are an optimist i would say to you you are a fool if you put your money down for this in advance of reviews and shipping and alike you are a full a damn fool more so than pre-ordering normally which is pretty foolish this seems very foolish you need to wait to see how this thing actually runs at launch because right now it runs like us okay it runs like absolute us so please be aware of that beyond the technical stuff theres definitely some concerns i have about how this gameplay loop is shaping up first of all theres no npcs what this does is it makes the world feel very empty all of the time now fallout is meant to feel empty i know that ive played the other fallout games too but this one feels particularly empty it feels completely lifeless in fact because interaction with other people in games like this really helps to break it up and create a feeling of like world building and substance and something but right now all im talking to are robots and all im hearing are these holotapes things playing that just drone on forever and ever and ever some of these hollow takes go for like six or seven minutes im just people talking about the most boring shed and somehow this is meant to be immersive the decision to not have any npcs i think was a very ill-advised decision and also it actually has very serious story implications because so often youre gonna be like you get a quest thats like hey go find phil phils gonna teach you how to do something youre like alright cool ill go find phil but guess what you know theres no npcs in this game you know that everyones dead so you know that when you get there youre not gonna find phil youre gonna find phils holotape it gets old really fast i promise you that like seven times now its like go see margaret go see phil go see eggbert i dont know and you always know what the outcome is theres a corpse lying on the ground theres a hollow tape there you start listening to the hollow tape so that already really really sucks now pvp is in many respects the heart and soul of what this experience is its its the core of what a lot of these open-world sandbox survival games are about and what im seeing already is that this game is compromised too much on that vision and pvp is just really shed and boring as a result i met one guy who was in a house i shot him like 80 times it didnt do anything drugs blood hey buddy yeah buddy come on buddy you wearing a dress lets go buddy buddy go flock yourself he says come on man come at me bro so i cant do anything to him right now nothing his tarts arent even attacking me by the way and now theres until he eventually shot me back after he had all his tarts set up and then eventually he managed to kill me and then i could somehow go and get revenge on him then after that and i got revenge by just killing him like shoot him in the face twice while he would have his menu open here we go ready rip rip rip didnt even do anything because he was in his menu at the time he had no idea what was going on and then we did this three or four times he swore at me a few times which is kind of funny and that was it like that was what pvp was because what the developers have not done is made a commitment to say we are going to make a pvp game with tension inherent around it were gonna build rewards around that were gonna build risk and reward frameworks what theyve done instead is this awkward compromise where pve players are probably going to be disappointed because theyd like to just get on with their business without being hassled and pvp players are going to be pissed off because theyd like to be out of pvp and they just keep getting ignored by pve players its very similar to something like the dark zone in the division where you have two players with very different objectives and goals meeting in a space and then having to just kind of awkwardly coexist with both of them not being satisfied with whats taking place again your mileage may vary i played this on my own its possible if im playing with a whole group of people its a whole lot better but let my experience be emblematic of what this might be like as a solo player and i know a lot of bethesda fans are solo players so definitely keep this in mind at a very cool level though theres just a problem with gunplay and conch enos and performance with regards to the actual combat system it doesnt feel good to fire a gun in fallout its never felt good to fire a gun in fallout he didnt really care that much before because it was about the story in the world and the rpg and whatever else the factions all that shed its like the witcher we didnt really care that a combat sucked it was about all the other things but here the combat is a core part of what this game is its arguably the core part and it really does feel sheddy and clunky and bad and i never enjoy pulling the trigger in this game and its a big problem for a game like this thats holy shed thats if youre not aware is the auto targeting system available in fallout games that basically lets you select a body part so that you can then do you know guaranteed damage plus chance of a bonus damage etc etc works perfectly fine in a single-player game in a multiplayer game youre like what do you do with it dont worry guys thats his back its just the worst most memed version of it possible the way thats works is that you press the q button it will automatically target an enemy and you just pull the trigger and it will almost guaranteed hit them or hit them based upon the percentage that you see when you target them so your gun doesnt actually point at the thing that is aiming at right so like i could be targeting something and my gun is pointing in another direction but i will somehow still hit that target it looks flocking ridiculous i dont care

first some classic impotent / self hating cod rage (NSFW – or play)

Today’s Call of Duty is a mangled mess – nothing but trend chasing, liberty taking, intellectually insulting and philosophically offensive hot wet garbage – and the zenith of the overly produced, focused tested vapid filth ‘jaculated from Bobby Kotick‘s round pink nuts is Call Of Duty Black Ops 4; Black Ops 4 perfectly encapsulates why Activision-Blizzard is a bunch of sniveling, sh1t slinging flock buckles who should shove their games up their arts and flock off while they’re doing it
– Seriously Though, Flock Black Ops 4 (The Jimquisition)

i already know exactly what im gonna hear its just a beta once the full game releases itll be much better theyll fix all the issues dont judge a game by the beta no its not and no they wont this is a demo not a beta they call it a beta every single year so people will say exactly what you just did in order to try and defend this game this is exactly what you will be getting on release day mark my words so lets go ahead and talk about blops 4 if you read the title of this video i think you get a general feeling for what my thoughts are on this game blops 4 in my mind is the worst cod game i think ive ever played now thats not to say i havent had fun with the beta because at times i have blackouts 4 has its moments but the negatives far outweigh the positives in this case going into the beta i wanted to keep an open mind i was genuinely interested and excited to try out this game for myself and the hopes of finally getting another great cod game on the same level as games like cod 4 modern warfare 2 and 3 blops 1 and 2 however when i played the game almost every single one of my concerns that i highlighted in my previous video talking about this game leading up to the release of the beta was confirmed this game is a drastic and i mean drastic departure from every single cod game that has come before cod has in the past tried to change things up and tried to adopt different industry trends surrounding first-person shooters the games have always still felt like a cod game at their core well that was the case at least until blops 4 i think this is the first time i can honestly say that cod no longer feels like a cod game and its completely lost its identity it focuses so much on trying to adopt ideas from other games it completely forgets why cod is such a great game series in the first place what you have here is a mix of overwatch rainbow six siege blops 3 and destiny blops 4 takes so much inspiration from other games that it feels like a ripoff in some form of nearly every single popular first-person shooter you can think of thats released in the past three to four years change is definitely a on us is that a good thing or a bad thing well thats up for you to decide but what i can tell you is that after playing the beta for well over 15 hours at this point i think i am more than ready to give my honest opinion on this game and yes it will be mostly negative but thats just my personal thoughts and preferences i know ill already get the comments saying that i wanted this game to fail that i just hate cod or i wanted to cash in on the hate surrounding this game think what you will but i still plan on telling you exactly what my honest thoughts are on this game i have no vested interest whatsoever and whether or not this game succeeds or fails other than as a gamer who wants one of my favorite franchises to pull itself out of the gutter and once again be a game i look forward to and enjoy every single year with that said lets go ahead and tackle the biggest problem with blops for the gameplay i know not a good thing to get wrong in the game with only multiplayer to fall back on the gameplay of blops 4 feels clunky and slow-paced both activision and treyarch have been on record saying that they wanted blops poor to be a quote/unquote tactical teamwork driven experience and as a result of that blops 4 feels and plays different than any other game in the series the result is that you almost feel penalized for playing the game alone this push for treyarch wanting you to play as a squad and use teamwork is made evident by the fact that now an assist counts as a kill just like an overwatch but this focus on teamwork undermines what cods experience has always been its been a game that you could pick up and play and have a great time either by yourself or with your friends this emphasis on teamwork is only made worse and thrown even more in your face with the changes to the feel of gameplay when youre playing it almost feels as if youre wearing 200-pound weights while trying to move around even when youre aiming down sights it almost feels like theres a weight shift in moving the reticle trying to lock on to your target which hinders your ability to target other players the aiming in this game just feels awful the best comparison to this clunky and weighted feel i can think of is rainbow six siege at least on console aiming is slow and deliberate unlike previous games where it was all about quickly locking onto your targets and getting a kill within the next second this new feel of gunplay makes your reactions much harder to pull off say youre engaged in a point-blank situation normally the thing that most anyone would do is try to get a quick hipfire kill on that person well if you were to do that in blops 4 it would be completely disastrous because even if you spray someone at point-blank range and empty an entire mag chances are theyll still be alive thanks in part to the clunky movement and aiming but also caused by the extremely high time to kill which brings me to my main complaint with this game time to kill is way too high the health either needs to be reduced from 150 to about 125 or 100 or weapon damage needs to be drastically increased in those cases you have to fire at least half your magazine just in order to pull off a single kill unless your targets just standing there motionless you will have to be extremely lucky if you ever hope to hit a multi kill in blops 4 unless youre great at consistently hitting headshots youre an expert sniper or youre using an lmg in fact in any situation where you just so happen to be in a 1v2 scenario its almost impossible for you to stand any sort of chance whatsoever but it doesnt stop there this has only made 10 times worse by the fact that health does not auto regenerate you are forced to manually heal yourself after taking any amount of damage and it just further slows down any flow to gunplay because rather than focusing solely on killing other players you must constantly be checking your health bar to see if you need to heal or not after every firefight this was a completely unnecessary and just annoying addition to the games maybe im alone on this but the last thing im thinking about after i just finished an intense gunfight is to inject the damn shot of heroin into my jugular ive died several times because ive forgotten to heal even though i was out of combat for upwards of 10 seconds its an annoyance and i have no clue why the hell this was changed did i miss the groups of people advocating for the removal of automatic health regen it just seems like such a dumb and unnecessary change that makes this game feel even slower and frustrating i cant tell you how mad ive gotten whenever im locked into the stem pack animation and i get killed before i can even raise my gun out of all the things wrong with cod health regen was not even in the top 50 the scorestreaks in this game are also terribly executed it takes six kills just to get a uav and given time to kill youre barely going to get any good scorestreaks unless you plan on getting kill streaks of over ten and youre just constantly capturing objectives the score streaks themselves are good for the most part but earning them is far too demanding i wish that cod would just go back to the basic kill streak system but that seems too far gone at this point the specialists are back and worse than ever their abilities range from extremely overpowered downright useless this is where the game feels even more like overwatch and rainbow six siege each specialist has their own unique set of combat abilities not just a particular super or ultimate ability this gives off an obvious overwatch vibe to the game also you can only have one type of each specialist on a team at a time and that is something i personally cant stand i could maybe understand if they restricted the specialist to one per team and maybe like the ranked game modes but this is across all of multiplayer with the only exception to that being chaos team deathmatch which you can have two of the same specialists on a team which is better but still annoying specialists honestly just need to be taken out a cod for good they were a sad attempt to mimic destiny another activision ip when they were first introduced in blops 3 that only serves to patronize terrible players and they only disrupt the flow of gun based combat the specialists are a copy and paste job from blops 3 with a few new additions none of them are really that interesting and it makes me wonder why we just cant make our own character and equip them with whatever ability we want to the game modes a blops 4 are exactly what you would expect from a cod game but with one major unwelcome change every single mode in the game with the exception of chaos tdm is now 5v5 there are times where youll just run around the entire map for minutes just looking for someone to kill only to have someone spawn behind you and kill you this change is not helped by the fact that the maps themselves feel rather large and empty at times if anything they should have added more players because the larger maps this game has take a long time to traverse without any sort of advanced movement system with the exception of ruin who has a grappling hook over all the maps as a whole are just ok a lot of them feel like infinite warfare remnants with none of them really being that great as of right now im completely impartial on what map i play on none of them are necessarily awful but at the same time none of them are memorable the guns and blops 4 feel like a mixture of advanced warfare and blops 3 and so far theres not a gun that ive used that i dislike and thats a good thing they all feel very balanced and good to use with my favorites being the icr and dmr the problem that i have with the guns and blops 4 is that the smg and ar classes as a whole feel like it just takes way too long to get a kill but i think the fault with this lies with the time to kill itself and not necessarily the guns because once they actually crank up weapon damage maybe lower the health a little bit i think everything will be perfect and the guns for the most part will be very balanced and good to use so on that note the weapons in this game are fun to use and overall they feel very balanced so it does have that going for it the graphics are exactly what youd come to expect with any cod game the game visually is identical in every way to blops 3 so much so that i was still trying to double jumping wall run for the first few hours while playing the beta take away the ui and you would be hard-pressed to even distinguish the difference between the two games and that is in no way a compliment considering theres a three year difference between the two the cod engine is a relic from another age and activisions refusal to upgrade or replace it makes this game already look dated games like battlefield one in battlefront 2 on eas frostbite engine look like a generational leap when you compare it to the dated look of blops for the only reason why this is the case is activisions downright complacency with their dominant spot in the market with cod and should not be excused now this is not to say the game necessarily looks terrible but it does look the same as every other cod game youve played this generation going back as far as ghosts keep in mind i was playing on the ps4 pro version of the game and im not really sure if there were any enhancements present in the beta so im not really sure if that would have any influence on what i saw but overall the game was just unimpressive in terms of the graphics the textures are blurry theres a lack of detail and theres almost a fog in the distance every time you look across the map the graphics are acceptable but nothing more overall this game seems to perform well though ive had the zero network issues whatsoever i havent timed out and ive barely run into any lag whatsoever this could be attributed to the fact that im playing on gigabit verizon fios wi-fi so my speeds are definitely not the norm but speaking for my experience the network seems to be functioning very well which is a surprise especially after cod world war 2 s terrible network issues during the beta and at release even to this day blops 3 still has network issues as well but in my time with blops 4 ive had nothing to complain about the framerate also seems to be very stable ive not noticed any substantial frame drops whatsoever then again im playing on the ps4 pro so given the more powerful hardware over the base ps4 it could be that the pro version just runs much better so i cant speak to the performance on the base ps4 blackouts for run smooth just like you would expect from a cod game so in that regard the game has that going for it overall the game performs as it should on the ps4 pro but the graphics leave much to be desired activision step up your game its 2018 we arent playing on the xbox 360 anymore in 720p as things sit right now with blops 4 it is by far the worst cod game i think ive ever played out of the entire series it deviates so much from the core gameplay mechanics to the point that this game feels like it could have been an entirely new franchise it feels like a ripoff of every popular fps game you can think of the gameplay is clunky and slow the time to kill is ridiculously high the graphics are bland and look the exact same as blops 3 a three-year old game the maps are not memorable whatsoever the specialists are the same as blops 3 and the list goes on and on the only positives i can really think of surrounding this game are the fact that ive had no issues with the network it runs well for the most part on my ps4 pro and the weapons all seem pretty balanced thats about it this game feels like it was thrown together in a couple months and to me confirms the rumours that the original blops 4 was a super futuristic overwatch clone that treyarch had to can a couple months before this beta actually came out blops 4 to me seems like a pitiful half attempt to scrap together game assets from blops 3 and whatever they could salvage from the originally planned blops 4 right now my only hope for this game whatsoever is the blackout battle royale mode since i really have no interest in zombies whatsoever its never really been my thing my expectations are definitely non-existent at this point given the trash heap that this multiplayer for the game is the blackout beta is in september and that will be the absolute deciding factor on whether or not i have any interest in this game whatsoever as things are right now im strongly leaning towards not buying this game because in its current state the game is just not fun to play and that to me is the most important part of a game like cod i genuinely have no desire to go back to the beta and continue playing and that is not a good sign at all this so-called tactical gameplay that treyarch seems obsessed with and this continuing push for esports is not at all why i buy and enjoy cod i want a casual pick-up-and-play experience i dont want every match i play to feel like an mlg tryout where if youre not working with your team you will get destroyed even in team deathmatch treyarch has a long road ahead of fixing this disaster of a game they need to listen to what the community actually wants and make the appropriate changes or this can and most likely will go down as the worst cod game ever released cod blops 4 absolutely sucks anyway thats just my thoughts on the blops 4 beta let me know what you think of the game if youve played the beta are you planning on picking up this game once it

cod blops 3 is the 12th game in the mainline cod franchise and those of you who ever enjoyed south park family guy sponge bob the simpsons or pretty much any other tv show you know that after season 10 is when a series starts to lose its mojo yeah baby such as the case with blops 3 well what sort of background info do we need to know about this enhanced mobility shooter well was the second game made within activisions 3 year development cycle the first being advanced warfare so with an extra year in the bag youd expect it to benefit greatly and i are now any and all problems that the previous games might have had right but if you thought that youd be theres so much wrong with blops 3 but at the same time it does things well ive never been so conflicted with a cod game before and thats why for the first time im not doing a bad review or even an awesome one im doing a mediocre review i guess you can make mediocre jokes in the comments section below thats what i deserve for watching the trailers i could tell something was up the reveal was just so damn generic little did i realize that being generic would be the least of blops 3 problems the single-player would show the startling reality that the developers simply didnt know where to take the series anymore or at least it showed they didnt know how to structure it properly but this trailer the ember tease thats another story take a look this one sentence is packed with so many possibilities for powerful storytelling it comes across like a war quote the type youd see when you died an older cod games so why isnt the flocking story about this this is like the halo 5 trailers with locke in chief expertly made vivid memorable iconic everything the story should have been but wasnt blops 3 was still a very successful game would you expect as damn near every entry in the franchise is but was the success warranted did this game sell off brand recognition in the blackops name how can i even begin to describe its campaign did blops 3 innovate in good ways like the first two games and with the zombies mode continued to cater to the hardcore fans and leave casuals in the dust well lets what the heck is happening alright lets lets go in the flock what what is going on with all right and then were gonna okay i did not take any mushrooms today what the shed flock it lets just take every drug known to man go on a spiritual journey and try to understand what in gods name is happening you might not believe me when i say this but i got an inside scoop into the behind the scenes of the development of blops 3 what one of treyarch employees told me was how the game was pitched in the board meeting it went a little something like this hey kids did you like cod world at war did you love blops 1 did you love blops 2 well then youre gonna flocking hate cod blops 3 okay so this didnt really happen i dont want to get sued but jesus christmas it might as well have not since paper mario sticker star in halo 4 have i seen a sequel that deviates from what people loved about a series like blops 3 what do i mean well shed its gonna take some time to explain but lets start with the single-player campaign this story is a complete disaster it affects my psychological state of mind well it begins with you choosing a gender and blops 3 makes a statement that there are only two aha i knew it tumblr users and polygon writers make a note of this if you havent were going to need you to complain endlessly about this minut detail of absolutely no importance the opening cutscene tells us that bio augmentation has become commonplace in the world and theres been a disaster what oh no super storms destroyed buildings displaced residents oh my god when you give me the information this way through flat exposition guess what i dont care and well never understand why there are enemies or what their goals are so then were introduced to hendrix who just keeps piling on the exposition and then were dropped into the ethiopia of all places alright and hendricks is pulling a bait-and-switch to shoot down a helicopter now heres the first of our recurring problems with the story at this point i dont really know why im here this is egyptian minister say even taken hostage by nrc forces two days ago why are we fighting the nrc what is the nrc what do they do and what is their name stand for whos this minister saeed guy why is he important why are we going to rescue him why was he captured in the first place how come he doesnt make an appearance in any other mission but this one train go boom blops 3 has the most but flocking confusing campaign in the series and its partially because the game constantly drops us into these conflicts without establishing the basics look at the last two blops games its pretty clear early on what youre doing and why alex is being interrogated for information about the numbers now we dont know why the numbers are so important at this moment but it gives us a clear goal for the entire game and so everything alex is interrogated about is meant to reveal the events that led to this point even though it swaps between multiple characters and time periods this story is engaging fun and easy to follow and it explains everything near the end same thing for blops 2 it switches between time periods its not jarring at all because your goals are always clear right now a billion people believe that raul menendez is their savior you better take him up pretty flocking quick i think im gonna coin the term halo 5 syndrome because this is the type of writing that battlefront to ea had halo 5 had it and now blops 3 there is always a disconnect between your character what youre doing and why and this makes it impossible to get invested in the events of the game anyway so we go to find minister saeed we get to look at other prisoners being tortured you know we swapped through cameras and its pretty cool but as i just explained who are these prisoners why are they here what connection do they have to hendricks tailor me saeed khalil so we head up an elevator get trapped by nrc forces and then were saved by this guy called taylor then hendricks and taylor have a mundane conversation at a very inappropriate time were different still seen rachel yeah dude you still seeing rachel tell me about your relationship after we just murdered 70 people and theyre still warm corpses are lying all around us are you still flocking that bitch or women theres more shooting more dialogue and then whoa robots where is this terminator i robot then taylor and hendrix start arguing about your cliche hey we need to save those other people but its not part of our orders you suck all right fine well rescue them then were dropped into the most ridiculous turrets section ive ever seen ill talk about gameplay in action later but holy shed this thing shoots explosive rounds or something either that or everything in ethiopia is constructed out of dynamite look at how batshed crazy this section is some other stuff happens and as our character is moving to evac we get ambushed by robots oh god damn oh my jesus i dont know if i can watch this with our character losing his limbs and left to die and bleed out the mission ends but it turns out we were rescued by taylor and went under the operating table to save our life and give us the cybernetic enhancements that blops 3 is based around taylor yeah do you know whats happening to you im playing a shedty game so once again the game starts dropping all these names and locations we know nothing about coalescence corporation the winslow accord the 54 immortals etc and taylor informs us of the technology known as dni which is a pretty cool concept its a system that is surgically implanted into people that allows them to interact and take control of other technological systems this includes hacking terminals disabling drones and a variety of other neat little tricks dni also allows a person to leave their mind with another experience what theyve experienced this connection through dni can last hours days weeks months but in real time happens within a few moments its a pretty interesting concept that well talk about later so then we appear on a train and we start talking to taylor about the technology and dreams and that sort of thing the plot of blops 3 in this whole train sequence borrows a lot of ideas from the movie source code a really good movie by the way which is all about a guy who has to go back in time over and over again until he can save a train from blowing up sound familiar and blops 3 were told that postmodernists blew up the train who these postmodernists were what their names are what their objective was who gives a shed but what it does explain to the audience is train go boom and and it sums up the campaign and story perfectly weve got this vast cool futuristic universe with mind games dni drones warbots futuristic weapons a society dependent on technology and how do we explain it all to the audience train go boom essentially the second mission is here to teach us about dni our new abilities introduce us to some characters we wont end up caring about and set the stage for the technological warfare were about to experience one thing i noticed right away was the player character whose name in the subtitles is his literally player so thats what im gonna call him player is probably the most unrelatable protagonist weve seen in the series every time he talks i want to ingest copious amounts of cyanide something about his voice actor just rubs me the wrong way and i cant ever take him seriously because his dialogue is written so horribly and he acts like everything is such a big flocking deal when he has no reason to be invested in any of it and therefore neither do i so then our next objective is to hunt down some random postmodernists in a hoodie whos whos not even given a name dude besides hes a flocking postmodernist durka anyways we had to singapore to investigate some missing nwa operatives and from here we learned that taylor and his group of the last ones here so player hendricks and kane connect the dots and assume hes responsible for killing like six dudes apparently this is enough motivation for the rest of the game to revolve around tracking down and killing taylor and his team and were just gonna go over the fact that weve killed about 800 people up to this point so taylor is supposed to be our villain the problem is we never actually have a concrete reason to hate him or stop his evil plans whatever those might be or if he even has any there was never a moment where i was rooting for a player and the other characters to overcome a challenge or where i was cheering them on to take down a villain and when i was happy when they succeeded in fact this game doesnt really have a villain taylor hendricks the 54 immortals none of them are tangible because we hardly see them do anything bad and when we do we dont understand why because the game doesnt tell us what motivates the 54 immortals what what theyre just drug and weapon dealers okay why do they hate the winds little cord matter of fact whats the wind slow accord what is it trying to accomplish why is there an uprising in cairo and whats the end goal of it what is anything trango go raul menendez was a bad guy you could see he was always there to flock your day up you witnessed him doing terrible things to characters you liked he killed people manipulated them understood his motivations and where his burning hatred came from even if you couldnt relate to it raul was an antagonist you wanted to take down so why did taylor kill these nwa operatives cuz a voice in his head told him to i guess reason and motivation people blops 3 has none of it in fact the game has barely any connection at all to the previous entries raul menendez is mentioned in a couple throwaway lines and nova six gas makes an appearance for some reason and theres a line reminiscent of what hudson said in the first game but honestly theres no reason for this game to be called blops 3 it only gives the false impression that its gonna build off the stories we liked and experienced before i just dont care about the people in the story because i dont understand whats driving them its another classic case of show dont tell we cant be shown how the world is affected by all this technology these disasters and what role all these factions play in it we have to be told about it like its a flocking boring history lesson i dont give a shed about your uprising yeah you said it hendrix thats exactly how i feel hey remember that scene in the original modern warfare when we witnessed a flocking nuke going off yeah its one of the most memorable scenes in gaming history it was almost like we were there witnessing disaster or being told about a disaster which one do you prefer more in a video game the game shows people getting killed and whatnot but we arent given a reason to sympathize with them because we dont have a character that represents or relates to the people who are suffering let me explain what i mean and this applies to all forms of storytelling see in avatar the last airbender weve got the main character aang who wakes up hundreds of years late after fleeing from his destiny to bring balance to the world the story shows and tells us his tragic history and because he tries to maintain this positive upbeat carefree attitude we sympathize with aang as hes just trying to enjoy his childhood but if we never saw him reminisce about his past but we never saw him come to the real that all his people are dead as a direct result of him forsaking his duty we wouldnt care about the airbenders because nobody would be affected by their demise on a personal level the reason we give a shed about the airbenders is not just because aang is the last one but because we care about aang i really am the last airbender at no point in blops 3 is there any sort of emotional connection or attachment created between us and the other characters or between the other characters themselves you might say aww taylor and kane had some romantic interest but we have no idea what that interest was or why they loved each other why they cared about each other at all they all talk like something big is at stake whether its the nwa safe house is being leaked to their enemies or war breaking out or a huge disaster but its all just so distant another one of the biggest issues with blops 3 stories the way it treats violence now i know in regards to call a duty you might not think this is true but it is violence is a tool its a means of telling a story and when its not treated that way thats when we get the real shed so when you watch the normandy invasion in saving private ryan whether you realize it or not the extreme violence is being used as a way to ground the story in the setting of world war 2 and show you how flocked up it was you get an idea of how horrific war truly is to the point where its hard to watch and even harder for you to put yourself in the shoes of a soldier on that beach aside from the scene where the player gets mutilated by a robot blops 3 treats violence as a spectacle nothing more than shock value now contrast this masterpiece of a scene with some of the violence in blops 3 well theres a part where the 54 immortals are capturing people and hendrix tells us they run a slave trade the immortals run a well established trade in human flesh okay so what happens next theyre just gonna leave them dude what what oh oh i guess slaves are more valuable if you blow their flocking heads off but seriously what was the point of this scene are we supposed to hate the 54 immortals because they just killed a couple random civilians what are we meant to feel i dont flocking know similarily theres a point where goji jeong whatever a name is leader if the 54 immortals gets her hand cut off and then her face is melted and its like who was this character again what does any of this accomplish not compare any violent depictions in this game to blops 2 again raul menendez doesnt shoot out peoples kneecaps and slit their throats for no reason he does it because he has a burning hatred within him and an unquenchable desire to see the people who destroy everything he loves brought down to his level some men just want to watch the world bad so with characters we have no desire to connect with a poorly explained plot told through tedious exposition a futuristic setting thats as distant as the stars in the sky and an unclear villain with motivations we cant understand treyarch starts throwing all this weird shed at us on top of everything in addition all the tragedies that are going on apparently theres also a virus called corvis infecting peoples dn eyes and causing them to lose themselves and do crazy shed and thats thats why taylor killed those nwa operatives i trained go boom well in the second half of the game would get transported to the frozen forest a place constantly referenced to the point of absurdity and so we walk through it and its pretty goddamn cool did we find a baby what the hell is that about all right so when we connect with sarah hall we get taken back to world war two because she studied it this is bastogne i studied it at the academy i cited it in my final paper and were likely living through her memories but she was never there and everyone is still using guns from the year 2080 like what the flock is happening what in gods name is going on if nothing more to showcase that we can experience other peoples memories why not choose something that indulges us and reveals something about sarah halls character why isnt the game using this opportunity to do cool things and establish some kind of theme or moral or tone that encapsulate s the story as a whole or connect it to the other games in the series it makes no sense an onion and then we start fighting zombies in the single-player campaign what kind of drugs were they on when they made this crap alright so lets just skip to the ending and the twist because nothing else is really important i could bitch and moan about it all day alright so the twist is after you got mutilated by that robot after undergoing surgery to get the dni placed in you you died shortly after and would you guess where this was revealed at the end of the game no it was revealed in the fast scrolling text thats basically unreadable in this report by john taylor at the start of the game and so the twist is everything youre doing youre doing in john taylors shoes now to be fair blops 3 arguably has the best and most interesting premise of any cod campaign that the events of the story are being experienced by the player through interfacing with john taylor and reliving his memories while your character in real life lays in the medical bay awaiting surgery and that in real time we experience all of john taylors memories leading up to this point and that of his crew and only a few moments before the character dies thats so cool but the problem is when you hide critical plot points twists and characters within a comic book or scrolling text that flies by too fast you either have to look up an explanation on the internet or you record the footage or find some way to slow it down and pause it so you can read now in a game series with mass market appeal to mostly casual audiences yeah no shed people arent going to understand your story i mean there are some cool things about it throughout the game characters are trying to keep you focused on whats happening hey still with us stay with me hendricks youre still with me youre still in there hey you still with us taylor are you still with me they keep like snapping their fingers and saying hey you with me you still almost like a paramedic trying to keep you awake trying to keep you alive and conscious away from the light and the concept of the frozen forest being a place to comfort you before death is interesting as balls the idea that the final mission is the players mind finding closure before death the ideas here are just so brilliant but the execution is missing now while the complexity is intriguing the visceral imagery flocks with your head in a good way and makes you question whats really happening despite having all the answers now my question for you is what was the point i dont know i dont know why this story was told i dont know what i was supposed to get out of it aside from a brain flock moment when i looked it up online and realized the truth i dont know what i was supposed to feel what blops 3 should have done is had taylor write a journal about his experiences his missions and his descent into feeling like an expendable piece of technology this would give an overall message about how in the future humans might be looked at as just another tool to be augmented and used for the gain of an organization or group it could have explored the ideas of how far will technology take us before we become disconnected from reality the more we use and rely on it the ultimate twist at the end should have been something taylor talked about in this journal so the audience wouldnt be forced to flocking look it up you know hed lament the fact that the player died so quickly and would end on the note of him wondering what our last moments were like and if we experienced anything so the point of the story would have been a tragic tale of a soldier who got wounded in battle and had hope that technology could save him but while it doesnt save his life the dni technology allows him to find comfort and closure in a way that would have been impossible without it and when you apply this idea to all the millions of soldiers in this universe then it ends on a pretty depressing note and that would have stuck with us but instead it all comes off as forced with nothing really memorable except trango boom blops 3 story exemplifies creative writing but poor storytelling the ideas and concepts are brilliant but the vague and ambiguous presentation makes it incomprehensible to the average player we cant get attached to the characters i couldnt describe any of their personalities to you let alone what each one of them is supposed to represent or what they wanted despite how great the graphics are how unique and aesthetically pleasing these sections are and how cool it is to experience these mind games and see mountains moving all around and shed despite all the crazy awesome imagery and psychedelic nature of the story the problem with these sections is none of them make any sense when youre playing through them so it feels pointless it lacks substance when you compare this game to blops 1 the flaws are exemplified sure the story jumps around all the time but at the end of each mission were taken back to the present real time back to the interrogation room it explored themes about covert black operations what lengths countries and organizations will go to to achieve their goals it explored the idea of brainwash soldiers and how key phrases or a number sequence could be implanted in people in order to control them the twist at the end made sense because the game showed you what was actually happening and there were little details spread throughout that gives you those aha moments when you think about them nothing was confusing it all came together at the end of blops 1 and most importantly we had characters we liked and wanted to see succeed and we had villains we wanted to take down they all grounded the story and made it feel real no character in blops 3 has this type of consistency their motivations are unclear and constantly changing which makes the players second-guess everything thats happening and it takes what would otherwise be an interesting look at the psychological and technological aspects of war and it throws it in the dumpster instead of a character like alex mason whose struggles are clear blops 3 just plays too many mind games for the story to be anything but a disappointment if this was treyarch slate estanislao an extra year under their belt i cant say im shocked they aint gonna make one for blops 4 so now that my long-winded tirade on the story is over hows the gameplay it stinks it stinks keeping with the tradition of mediocrity treyarch made some cool innovations while scrapping the best parts of blops 2 there is no divergent multi-layered choices or storytelling in this game yet it is cool we have this mini hub area prior to each mission which allows you to do things like change your appearance look at collectibles your service record customise loadouts if you care about any of that and one thing that is interesting is the way they unify the customization so no matter what loads you play youre unlocking things and leveling up and getting experience points the cosmetics you unlock through playing the campaign multiplayer and zombies can all be used in each one of those modes the game allows you to create classes prior to each mission just like blops 2 and it has the accolades and scoring and leaderboards as well which is always a nice touch but whatever you do dont you ever ever pick a shotgun as a starting weapon you will get ass blasted so badly itll make you want to restart the game difficulty is pretty fair unhardened never had any world at war grenade spam ptsd so theres that its cool that we also get to fight robots people and all sorts of gigantic gizmos and gadgets boss battles are something that cod has never really done but theyre actually pretty fun here the game does introduce some cool visor mechanics where you can highlight how far away enemies are if the local areas hazardous or exactly how big the blast radius is on a grenade then theres like a night vision mode which does exactly what you think it would do and these new additions really spiced up the classic cod gameplay for me i just wish the campaign took them away from the player more often make you rely on it at first and then strip you of your tactical advantage you know what added some tension that way i dont know what else to say to be honest is pretty generic and forgettable for the most part it was kind of cool in the frozen forest parts where enemies and civilians would disappear when shot theyd appear out of thin air like it was get this a dream i flocking love the way the civilians on the train just like fall back in their seats and disappear one line of dialogue near the beginning did stick out to me no no dude it doesnt this kind of encapsulates tracks ideology on this game the more crazy cool futuristic shed you can do the better the game will be its funny because i rarely use these abilities as they were intended i just went back to shooting like it was any other cod game and thats about it honestly despite some of the interesting set pieces locations and unique art style we cant really get invested in the gameplay because the story is so god-awful ill admit i suffered through this campaign to make this review and i would not do it again but how does blops 3 handle its multiplayer well advance warfare introduced the new movement mechanics were all flocking sick of at this point and this game had a chance to flesh those out however this multiplayer is the definition of mediocre on one side the sliding boosting jet packs and specialist abilities give the game some flair and fun gimmicks tango down im not gonna lie i had fun with the multiplayer at first maybe because i was looking to scratch that cod itch since i had taken a break from cod and hadnt gotten into the multiplayer since blops 1 the guns are unique fun to use on a basic level its a fun game always enjoyable to pop some sucker out of the sky or use a specialist ability to rack up some kills and the specialists add a bit more variety and tactics to the game for better or worse although the core gameplay suffers immensely because of a few crippling flaws and this has become especially apparent after going back in replaying modern warfare 2 multiplayer in previous games the primary weapons had clear benefits and trade-offs and movement penalties associated with them lmgs were bulky slower to aim but there was no better choice if you wanted to lock down an objective smgs were good for a hit and run style that allowed you to surprise your enemies and flank them while assault rifles were the most balanced and the sniper class could fulfil the role of a more battle rifle type loadout or the traditional long-range marksman snipers are especially hurt in this game because when players can fly through the air its much harder to get a clean shot now stay with me here when every gun has so much starting ammo you never run out theres no need for a scavenger perk and because every player can fly and has unlimited sprint theres no need for marathon or lightweight because of the slide and boosts smg users can get up in peoples faces easier without taking a perk that helps them with that now because of this the pros and cons that separated the primary weapon classes their roles in the sandbox and how they stack up against each other all start to blur together and now the movement anacs are directly hampering the finely-tuned balance that the previous games established you would be surprised how much depth there is to cods multiplayer and just how swiftly blops 3 s design undermines that add-on to this that the map design is pretty generic basically just small three lane maps with some verticality and what we have is a multiplayer mode where your choice of weapon and how you build your loadouts doesnt matter much because the benefits and trade-offs are so minimal tactical grenades are borderline useless again when people are flying 30 feet in the air you cant land a concussion grenade consistently so why would you sacrifice a slot for it when you play any of the cod games prior to advanced warfare you know everyones gonna be on the flocking ground so the wrong is made grenades equipment claymores tacticals grenade launchers etc all viable i think wall running jetpacks and all this stuff has a much greater impact on cods core multiplayer than most people realize thats where the cracks start to form with advanced movement and people dont seem to talk about this all that much but its one of the real reasons people get upset with these futuristic games now to be fair there are almost no useless attachments and in comparison with modern warfare 2 this is a big upgrade i mean who the flock would use a holographic sight on the aa-12 lets be real so in this regard they really improved attachment choices overall unfortunately despite using the cool pick 10 system from blops 2 the class customization here is awful for starters there are 5 secondary guns to choose from youve gotta be flockin kidding [music] and im not talking about stupid-ass melee weapons or any of that dumb shed that cant be unlocked through traditional means those weapons dont count because barely anybody is going to have them but you know what kids nowadays have no idea how good we had it in the past let me let me just take your back a little diamond in the rough cult bottom warfare to heres a little lesson in quality class customization alright lets just look at our options here hmm youve got four machine pistols six shotguns four pistols and five launchers nineteen is a better number than five dont you flocking think and im gonna be comparing this game the modern warfare 2 because in my opinion it has the best customization in this series but its not even an argument of quality versus quantity this is an argument of depth for some strange reason i dont feel the need to put as much thought into my classes in blops 3 im not as anal retentive about it and it took me a while to understand why part of that is there arent any significant trade-offs for taking one perk over another there is no synchronization between what weapon class you use and what perks you use flock with such awful secondaries three machine pistols and two launchers thats it the only reason to take a secondary is if you choose a launcher to shoot down kill streaks to get your own faster whereas in modern warfare 2 you had to carefully think about what each class you created would specialize in heres an example so you really liked the famas and youre probably gonna want to pick sleight of hand or bling as your first perk because modern warfare 2 only gives you two extra clips for assault rifles but with a burst fire weapon you conserve ammo better whereas if you took the scar-h or acr youd want to go with scavenger now you also understand that the famas has great long-range capabilities with low recoil so an acog scope is actually very good but with a primary weapon more suited for medium and long range distances because older cod games used to actually have those in their maps youll need a close-quarters secondary so now its a matter of what do you want a weapon you can swap – in a pinch like a pistol it might not be as reliable or do want a shotgun thats a little more clunky to use but packs a bigger pocket if you rock bling pro youll probably want a pistol as the attachments for shotguns arent as useful what ive just described was a handful of the thought that gets put into making a single class in modern warfare 2 with five shedty secondaries and a majority of perks that have little impact theres not much room for pregame strategy and class setup in blops 3 there is no wasteland map where you say im gonna pick a sniper for this map this is a major problem with the multiplayer because progression and loadouts and what you pick to play on which map is one of the series most impactful mechanics and most meaningful decisions and even though the specialist abilities can be fun its just another example of ordnance drops from halo 4 so taking into account everything ive just said what blops 3 is multiplayer has managed to do is take the skill out of cod and lift it in a half-empty state of course because this game came out around overwatch destiny its gotta have flocking lube boxes and dumb emotes i cant help but cringe at the end of every multiplayer game when the characters say some dumb shed pull out their weapon put it back and then do some embarrassing pop-culture reference it puts an awful taste in my mouth and i got its awful uncool cheesy and just pure cringe but the worst is the way they made the loop boxes and the drops i dont even want to talk about this yeah well they basically loaded up these supply drops with a bunch of stupid crap calling cards emotes emblems skins theres so many skins it makes the actual unlockables pretty much worthless you get duplicates like theres no tomorrow and we all love that the grind is as tedious as a dark soul soul level one fists only playthrough okay its flocking ridiculous they loaded it up with weapons in an attempt to bribe you with gameplay advantages this is why the secondary choices offend me so much in this category they have more weapons unlockable through supply drops than they do in the base game and they try to offer contracts and challenges to give a placebo effect of a faster grind but win 75 games with the shed you know how long thats gonna take me for one weapon this is one of the most intrusive annoying and manipulative microtransaction systems ive ever seen in a video game and ive been around boy ive been around a long time honestly the only truly good thing about this game are the kill streaks which are flocking baller in fact the care package might be the best because i seem to always get good shed from it the fact that its your score and not kills that give you streaks means the player is rewarded for playing the objective and taking down enemy kill streaks using uavs points four assists that sort of thing this makes for much better flow within the gameplay overall and it doesnt fall into the pit hole that modern warfare 2 does where everyone is camping and trying to get their own kill streak and not play the actual objective so there is that the kill streaks are really fun to use and theyre creative this is where the futuristic part of blops 3 shines the dart is one of my favorites allowing you to control a mini missile that fires smaller missiles or the cerberus which is just an overpowered beast on the ground the talon is fun i love it all while the class customization kind of sucks its the kill streaks in this game that kept me playing till second prestige so all blops 3 multiplayer might have two cool weapons the awesome game modes both new and fan favorites while it may have incredible kill streaks the core issues that arise from the class customization the movement mechanics and the way it subverts everything the series had built up to this point is what keeps it from being awesome and instead makes it mediocre im basically a broken record at this point in regards to nazi zombies oops can i still say nazi oh shed dont ban me from battlefield 5 dice im sorry but just like transit and blops 2 just like the final reich in cod world war 2 shadows of evil the one and only map you get without paying money is a tedious fetched quest now dont get me wrong the map can be pretty fun when youve got people who know what theyre doing so they can take care of all that boring shed while you kill zombies and have fun the aesthetic and sound design of shadows is supremely good this lovecraftian horror vibe tentacles and cthulhu and all this just works so well for a zombies mode and the starting revolver i love it but aside from that the map is a complete mess for some inexplicable reason trek thought it made the map better to have the zombies come through areas that look like repairable barricades but arent it is confusing as hell you just get surrounded so fast because you cant repair barricades and you cant remember where theyre coming from because you cant repair the barricades from where they come from so you cant anticipate the zombies coming in you if you shoot in the same place for two seconds youre gonna get hit so there arent any good places to hold out because zombies constantly spawn all around you so you have no option but to play running gun and the supply drops didnt just mess with the multiplayer balance it had to flock with zombies too you can literally cheat the game with gobble gums obviously a choice made to again sell you advantages and zombies – i hate this so much man zombies is supposed to be an arcade type experience the first time we played it me and my buddies were playing keno and one of them spawned in like four fire sales we were at round four and after that i said flock it im not gonna play this game with any of that cheap bullshed cuz its not fun some of the gums are cool like unquenchable allowing you to buy a fifth perk but then theres shed like / coholic or profit sharing and so many others that just give such a blatant and unwarranted advantage that its simply not fun or challenging to play using that shed it just becomes rng at that point rng was supposed to be left in the mystery box so while i might have talked smack about cod world war 2 because of the absurdum of customization options blops 3 isnt as confusing to me it makes some very good innovations to the mode as you kill zombies and get to higher arounds you level up in this game just like what i talked about in the campaign and youll unlock attachments for guns in future games you can customize the paint job the camo which is really cool it gives a sort of personal feel to it and maybe i was just triggered in cod world war 2 but this seems a lot simpler to me its really cool to pick attachments prior to playing matches and again you feel like youre working towards something in zombies and thats something i really enjoy as far as dlc goes the only map i bought was their eisen tract which for the most part is fun but it still has the same problems of being a running gun only type of map the aesthetic is really cool fighting in a castle with dragons and zombies and shed and for the newer style of zombies games this is pretty good but ironically enough the best maps in blops 3 are the simplest ones specifically from zombie chronicles which all take their maps from world at war blops 1 and origins from blops 2 its because the older maps werent made with pay2win gobble gums in mind that its entirely possible and more fun to play them without using gobble gums at all the weapons might be different the zombies might have faster and the perks may have changed but the core fundamentals lie in the simplicity of the map design having played dearies and ascension kino der toten and all these maps so many times i cant tell you how refreshing it was to play it with newer graphics with different weapons with attachments i could customize that was the best part of zombies you know derrys is always gonna be a timeless map because its as easy as starting the game and playing whereas shadows of evil is something you have to look up and after doing the quests easter eggs and all that ive got no real desire to go back and replay it i just want to see how long i can last you know i think it goes to show that no matter how straightforward and casual the maps are made they appeal to everyone and the same cant be said for shadows of evil without zombie chronicles in the remake of dairys there would be absolutely no reason for me to play zombies or give it a second thought and though it is a very pricey dlc i think the amount of effort that went into remastering all these classic maps makes it worth it if youre like me and just want to enjoy some good old-fashioned zombies so lets wrap this up by talking about the extra features surprisingly while blops 3 doesnt have the strongest multiplayer zombies or campaign trade still managed to pack this game full of content and for the most part thats something i can really appreciate for one theyve got this mini mode called free run which is basically a time trial speedrun sort of thing thats not much you got four levels but its a neat little mode to distract you and of course leaderboards because we all want to know who has the biggest dick in addition theres a nightmare mode which sends you through the campaign missions with a slightly different story and with zombies replacing the normal enemies you know the nightmare mode looks pretty interesting having said what i did about the campaign though do i have any desire to play this nope but the big draw for me is dead ups arcade to a point of emphasis that blops 2 missed out on completely and let me tell you this is the fun shed right here while looks about the same as the first one theres a few key differences but when you get a map screen in between areas so theres a goal and end point for the player to visualize and an adventure leading to the end the old-school arcade style and charm is nailed with absolute perfection this opening cutscene is glorious [music] sets the tone perfectly the graphics sounds music gameplay is phenomenal a few new power-ups are added none cooler than this card that brings you into a first-person mode seamlessly allowing you to take an extra hit and it makes the gameplay more dynamic i also got this gigantic chicken mech that shoots explosive eggs so that was pretty flocking funny while trek wasnt able to maintain the identity in any other parts of blops 3 they kept it here and dead ups arcade – and it isnt even hidden from the player this time around you dont have to enter a code from the main menu its available from the start definitely some of the best dumb fun you can have with this game casual or hardcore and of course there is co-op – so bring your friends like i said blops 3 is mostly a mediocre experience but within these layers of extra content it gives gamers more reasons to play more options and that is always something to be commended treyarch and my eyes almost always delivers just the right amount of content and whatever cod game they produce and even though i hate to say it they did it with blops 3 when it comes down to the wire blops 3 is the epitome of mediocre and a cod franchise sure some might see it as mostly bad and i to lean towards that side a bit but the difference is i can still have fun with the game despite its major flaws not the campaign no that shed is hot garbage a complete mess way more confusing than it needs to be nor is it fun enough to warrant more than one playthrough with just shadows of evil and no zombie chronicles the zombies aspect wouldnt be much better either and while the multiplayer has that emphasis on enhanced mobility its at least passable enough that it can be played casually from time to time especially if youre chasing those fun kill streaks overall though the cracks in this game are just too deep and wide to ignore and despite the benefit of a three year development cycle blops 3 is proof that time doesnt give you everything and it cant replace a lack of vision and that is why cod blops 3 was so media

whats up everybody this is the act man here and today i feel quite disappointed now i like to maintain a decent amount of positivity on this channel but it just so happens that around the times of iii theres a lot of controversy and a lot of great things coming out for the most part this years e3 was one of the best as i talked about in my previous video at this point though it kind of seems like every time we hear something new about cod and blops 4 if flocking sucks its negative could be my ears arent listening to everything thats out there but what they did pick up on and what plenty of you asked me to talk about was the blops for season pass hybrid thing let me just say i want to go back to talking about why modern warfare 1 & 2 were awesome and some of the older games i want to play blops 2 for the first time cod fans need a bit more positivity but they aint getting that shed from activision or treyarch right now theres a lot of frustration a lot of fatigue and plenty of exhaustion in the cod community and thats for plenty of reasons but the main one is these issues plaguing the blops 4 past are just the latest in a series of shed fans have had to deal with but who would have guessed it would get worse after all this time you know 10 years of making blops 1 2 & 3 you ask yourself where do you go with this now right i have a bad feeling about this but first what is the blops 4 pass well its an even worse version of the same thing activision has been selling gamers since blops 1 8 years ago its your typical promise of future content and asking fans to pitch in before they even know what theyre getting now why are fans so upset about this particular season pass what makes it different why are people spamming this hashtag on the cod twitch channel well for one the rumors surrounding this game though obviously just rumors are not credible raised peoples expectations and gave the false hope of a free dlc plan second theyve designed the season pass in a way that locks you out of the dlc completely its a one-way street no deviations no single purchases no just buying the zombies stuff no buying the game and then deciding later you want the season pass no this is a flocking all-or-nothing deal or no deal thats what im reading i thought this was fake it first i honestly did and im still skeptical im not convinced this isnt just a bait and switch cuz holy shed its like activision and treyarch dont want you to buy blops for you already lost credibility in good faith and a lot of fans when you decided to cut out the single-player campaign and chill out for battle royale but now this come on man how hard is it to just offer a good deal or give people this stuff for free so what it actually is according to activision zone website the season pass includes a classified bonus zombies experience for new zombies maps not available at lunch 12 new multiplayer maps and exclusive blackout characters specialists blah blah blah this pass and all the dlc is only available to you let me make that clear the dlc is only available if you spend upwards of 100 dollars and its all or nothing no i like money what inspired you to lump all the future dlc into a single package that can only be purchased with the game and not separately money one of the biggest issues with this pass is the timing of it were in a period where most companies have been phasing out season passes from their monetization schemes because i think they realized how damaging it is in the long run especially for multiplayer games like like honestly what new game coming out has announced the seasons pass whatever the new assassins creed is going to be thats all i can think of so it makes blops 4 look worse in comparison to other games coming out because they still havent ditched it for free dlc people eat that shed up but what they dont like eating is a scheme of dlc that costs way too much doesnt show you what youre buying and fractures the community of a game with an already short lifespan since blops 4 isnt doing this in this scenario activision and treyarch are painting themselves like the consumers are expendable who cares of a bunch of people leave cod in the dust and dont buy blops 4 yeah maybe well make money well make money either way it just doesnt come across like they actually about the fanbase because they keep doing the same shed over and over when theyve been told hey this is not what we want but then again the cod community sends very mixed signals so i dont know whos the villain in this scenario but its broadly activision and another problem with this pass that ties into the franchise fatigue i talked about is theyve been doing this for 10 years 10 years if im not mistaken theyve sold a season pass with every single mainline cod game for the last decade do you think thats enough isnt it time to evolve what about doing things the blackops way every cod game has pissed me off in this regard because 75% of the time if i want to buy dlc i just want the new flocking zombies map yet they insisted on tying that in with the multiplayer maps the greed is unreal because theyre still charging format packs and blops 1 in world at war it just make it free the monetization schemes never stop you got cod points pre-order bonuses early access deluxe edition digital deluxe edition digital deluxe enhanced edition pro edition microtransactions loot boxes supply drops blops pass season pass playstation timed exclusives it just never flocking stops its almost like cod is just a cash cow thats there to make money at any cost and it yeah that sounds spot-on actually cod is just a cash cow and it hurts to say that because i remember a time when the series had a soul when it felt like they cared about the fanbase and im not saying we arent an entitled bunch sometimes but come the flock on dude youre charging upwards of 99 bucks for this shed i cant buy dlc multiplayer maps on their own ive never been able to do that with a cod game i cant buy zombies maps on their own having convenient spending options for your consumers shouldnt be so flocking difficult this all gets worse when you look at tray x comments on blops 4 in the season pass and this year just like arrogance or the cluelessness ultimately boils down to almost this simply hey this is a game made for blops fans and the things that they most loved about playing blops games and its more of that and thats it yeah this guy i think hes actually serious let me elucidate what hes trying to say hey there fellow blops fans do you love zombies yeah do you love rezanov in the single-player campaigns yeah do you love when we replace the campaign with battle royale no no do you love $50 season passes no do you love a fraction community and multiplayer experience with certain playlists that died in population leaving you with content you can actually play but already paid for no you flocking idiot i get it you got a shill for the game pretend like things are all good and its all just a facade they dont give a shed to be honest i do find the gameplay intriguing and card world war two didnt scratch that multiplayer itch for me but it doesnt matter if i think it looks cool because whats not cool is having activision stick their dirty ass hands down my pants trying to fish out my wallet i do like the idea of slowing the gameplay down just a bit and offering more tactical decisions along with a revamped health system thats something i think cod is needed to do or at least try for a while and theyve been acting like what theyre doing is revolutionary thats how theyve been painting blops for this whole time forget what you know doing things the blops way redefining the way downloadable content is introduced into the franchise and this might just apply to me but i really dont care about specialists or whatever these community events they are theyre talking about to try and downplay this issue i dont care dude i just want fun gameplay great customization for gods sake wallah team app design and i dont want to feel like im being ripped off or exploited what blows my mind with the whole shebang is flocking get this theres now a worse gaming company than ea at the moment let that sink in ea has made more ethical choices for their consumers than activision and treyarch although to be honest activision has always been just a mirror of ea but still hard to believe theyve dug themselves into deeper shed while ea and dice have been digging themselves out cod arguably and then the eyes of this humble reporter has the worst track record when it comes to the treatment of their consumers you could go down the checklist down the rabbit hole as far as youd like the tide really started to turn with infinite warfare and the way they treated modern warfare remastered cod has been the front-runner of first-person shooters and video games in general for a long time but i first see a decline not huge yet significant enough to raise eyebrows cod is just going to get beaten out by the competition for not adapting for sticking to archaic models and clinging on to them for so long why would people go to blops 4 when battlefield 5 is gonna give them more for their money i guess the hardcore card fanboys will always be there but that only gets you so far if youre not bringing in more people than youre losing eventually thats gonna come back to bite you in the ass people only take so much shed before they decide to jump ship and right now theres far too many reasons to jump ship off the cod boat its sinking fort night is free-to-play pub g is very popular totally accurate battlegrounds is hilarious and battlefield 5 is gonna have free dlc so this might result in the blackout mode falling flat on its face because activision needs to milk you for everything youre worth theres just theres so many great games that just offer a better deal starcraft 2 recently went to a free-to-play model smash bros ultimate is gonna be the greatest thing ever doom eternal is around the corner gears of war 5 crackdown 3 the division 2 will have free dlc battlefront 2 is getting free clone wars dlc anthem could blow up and be incredible halo infinite is on its way theres so many more all these games im mentioning are giving you more and better reasons to play them and invest your time with them then blops 4 is and thats because all those other companies and games are evolving where activision isnt in the end you could boil all this frustration down into so many different things so much is led up to this field of resentment in the cod community dissatisfaction but trying to list off every transgression for the last 10 years would take too long its a lack of evolution a progressively greedier sales pitch year after year after year cod lost it so long ago its a cash cow now and i didnt think it would get worse but what do you think are you unhappy with the blops 4 pass the way the game appears to be headed or are you excited maybe youre apathetic to the whole thing but whatever your thoughts are leave them in the comments below like the video if you enjoyed it and subscribe to the x-men for more awesome content alright everyone thats all i got for today this is the act man signing out peace

hey guys drifter here today i want to criticize the blops 4 beta i did a bigger review called blops for the good the bad and the ugly and my general opinion on the game hasnt changed that much since then however getting the beta out into public hands playing it in a home environment you know off of land away from alpha with real normal gamers there are some new issues that have come to light that i want to talk about and i just want to focus on the bad things today pretty much nothing good in this video i only wanted to focus on the things that i think treyarch can improve either before next weekend or before the final game launches the gameplay youre going to get to see is me using the core night with its special operator mod unlocked which gives me a 600 round magazine as long as i dont let it overheat im also going to be going to town on kids in the beginning of this video my experience with the beta was kind of like an emotional rollercoaster and it was just up and down i loved it and then i hated it and i loved it and i hated it and one of the major issues that would force me to swap back and forth between love and hate was optimization at home i play on a playstation 4 regular im on a launch day playstation 4 because i never believed that playstation 4 pro was worth the money i dont play on a 4k monitor i didnt use psvr as much as i thought i would and it just didnt seem like a very good investment well id only ever played blops 4 on playstation 4 pros either at treyarch or at e3 or somewhere else and i got to tell you the beta never ran as nice on my playstation 4 as it did in those environments in treyarch or another big events it was especially rough on launch night launch night was pretty brutal to me after about an hour or two i started realizing that i was getting about 45 to 50 fps every single game that also came with screen tearing and some other frustrating issues thankfully the very next day treyarch dropped a hotfix that fixed about 90% of these issues apparently there was a bug in the game that was forcing players into a lower frame rate than what they were supposed to be having and i was getting that so after that hotfix my experience got way way better but it still did dip down to about 55 fps every now and then and i did get some frame skips on occasion and even when i went back in sony vegas to edit through my videos the capture software did capture some framedrops and skips so thats kind of spooky for me and its again its better but its still not good because cod has is more or less put enshrined that 60fps gold standard on console and literally anything less than 60 fps for a cod game is not acceptable and its very very frustrating a very similar issue that made thee that i guess it compounded on the first one is that it felt like blops 4 was dropping frames every time i got shot especially the first night or two until i got used to it but every single time i would get into a gunfight i just felt like i dropped frames like crazy i felt like i couldnt see my enemies i felt like i was losing track of everything i thought i was blind maybe ive become quadruple colorblind i thought i was going crazy but after the first two three four or five hours of gunfights i started just getting super mad and losing my mind because it felt like i couldnt see people then later that night i went back in sony vegas and i discovered that the new flinch mechanic and darkens your screen almost to the point of being black when youre shot and yes i said that correct so this game like every cod game has flinched great were fine with that and as far as im aware theres no perk that reduces flinch which is fine by me too however every time you get shot it literally darkens the screen around you and causes a very big visual distortion for several frames and what i was feeling as a frame drop or a frame skip was actually this visual distortion and it wont make its color blindness or well you guys will see it in a second it was just so hard for me to see enemies i just thought i was dropping frames lets just go ahead and go over to example time so you can see what im talking about so to give you a really good example or two of what im talking about here is me getting shot while i slink around a corner you can see profit in the background and im in sony vegas right now i can go frame by frame every time my character moves thats exactly one frame worth of data you can see the guy shoots you can see the little red indicator pop up so im taking a hit and now bam that is my screen thats a lot of visual distortion but this continues for one two three four five were pretty much clear in about six frames and then 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 were clearing up again that is a lot of frames a visual distortion again look how dark that gets i can barely see the wall in front of me perhaps a better example is one actually in combat if i can find where it was i had it kind of time-stamped here let me scroll through and see if i can find that particular moment ah i think it is this one right here i move out of the spawn im chasing firebreak around and let me go ahead and get to the juicy part im doing this exact same thing im gonna engage in a gunfight this guys getting it worse than i am because im actually killing him but im gonna come around the corner and i take one shot from behind me as you can see on the mini-map one of the bad guys is behind me but i get shot and that is my visual distortion at this point for me its very difficult to see fire break its difficult to see my environment around me its difficult to see my gun but lets see thats 1 frame 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and about 10 frames its finally cleared up now taking three shots instead of one but that is a lot of frames of not black screen but very dark screen theres another one of dark screen it just resets it again and i die so lets say im playing aggressive and i want to push the hard point im still kind of coming into this one frame at a time and i turned the corner and theres some dudes here were gonna start shooting each other at about the same time he actually got first shot in on me or if he missed a little bit i was like i got first shots in on him but then come on look at this look at this it just immediately darkens my screen i cant see anything you can also actually see a frame drop here happen to have a frame drop on a dark screen so thats really really frustrating i mean look how dark this is mm-hmm thats just a little bit too much for me i really really dont enjoy that in general i dont mind flinch i dont like when its random and lucky and enemy gets a head shot on me or something and it doesnt really bother me that theres no flinch for action perk either cuz then everybody would run it its nice to have an even playing field but this level of visual distortion is just too much for me i find it very frustrating i it makes its almost an entirely subjective thing and its its also like a historical cod thing that players complain about flinch and this part its not the fact that im flinching but rather the fact that my screen is darkening that really really throws me off similarly the sound when you get shot is pretty shocking too its very loud its cracking its popping its impactful and it pretty much seems like everybody shoots cannons in this game the hits cans the smoke the sounds are all super loud so when you get shot theres a huge audio-visual distortion and its very hard to overcome coming up next connections were not consistent at all again they generally did get better after launch night though launch night about especially like two or three hours in when lots of people were getting online was brutal for me when it came to connections some games people would react insanely fast and they would melt me after i would start shooting him first i would shoot a guy like six times and hed shoot me three times and then i would die instantly and i think that meant almost tilted me off of the face of the earth i was just going crazy there was a lot of shoot first die first then that drives me insane in video games especially in cod and especially in a game like this one or we have a really long time to kill and again with a short time to kill i figure like maybe he got a head shot maybe there was a little bit of lag and we kind of shot each other at the same time but in a game with a time to kill this along if i start shooting you and i get like three shots in and then i get turned on and died instantly we have problems again whatever the hotfix did or whenever the cos server stabilized they got better but it was very very frustrating up first i dont have any good data on this i turned off my net douma filtering and the hosts pinging and pretty much everything because i just wanted to play on a normal connection i wanted to see what a normal blops for beta experience would be like instead of getting a nice catered guaranteed dedicated server every single time though the dedicated servers were probably most of the ones ive played on i only was able to go off my experience in my fields but my fields were that the connections were inconsistent there were other games where i felt really really godly and case this one i dont know if you noticed what my enemies arent reacting as fast as they probably should be some of them might be potatoes and then others might be just be getting some sort of connection disadvantage im not sure but it was never the same game from game i couldnt really pin down a feel for it for the most part the next issue on todays list is armor and i think ive seen more reddit post and twitter posts about armor than anything else in the game but im with the community on this one normally the community and i do not see eye to eye on all game balance issues we have different tastes and wants but in this case armor literally drove me up a wall especially during my first couple days playing armor is essentially just free hit points just extra health for the first fight or maybe two its kind of like a retool juggernaut or painkiller and im not exactly sure how theyve changed it from alpha so ill have to be ill have to look into that one but it was very very frustrating for me to start a gun fight against an armored user and just accept the fact that im gonna lose i would turn a corner and i would see a guy and hed see me and be like alright its gun fight time ive got good aim confident i aim down sights and then i see that little armored icon pop up next to his name and i just gave up all hope and i was just immediately in that fraction of a second think okay i just have to accept this death thats great he had armored and i didnt and i lost this fight because i engaged i suppose the only way that i was consistently winning against armored users is if i could get in a guaranteed not first shot but a guaranteed first two shots or sometimes in case the other guy was just an idiot like if the other guy was just a new player he didnt know how to aim or he couldnt reposition well and i was hopping around like an idiot with a shotgun or smg then maybe i could have some kind of advantage but most reasonable players that had armor would just beat me hands down even if they didnt aim as good as i could it feels like armor just allows all the little timmy no thumbs out there to choose one easy kill and get a participation ribbon im not super sure how the mechanics work exactly im not sure if armored only counts for one life now or if it is a simple first shot negation or if its a damage reduction from shots incoming or how much damage you have to take to break the armor before it doesnt come back i wasnt able to test it because again its a beta and i cant like load up custom games or anything but it was frustrating and in general the ap rounds do seem to counter armor i again wasnt able to test that so i dont know if they counter it and that they negate the armor if they penetrate the armor if they break the armor so you cant reach in past it or whatever but i would run ap rounds on just about every single weapon that had them and with the exception of the ogg i generally avoided weapons that didnt have ap rounds i needed ap rounds to be competitive against armored users so that was frustrating as well i think if i had a single crutch attachment or perk it would be the ap rounds because armored tilted me that hard and i have to be very clear and plain and blunt that i think that armor should be removed like seriously when players dont have the same amount of health that is a serious vertical to overcome and yeah they can run acoustic sensor so they can hear footsteps or they can run gear charge which i did so i can spam my abilities or you know something more like stim so they can heal fast but none of those make any difference in a gunfight like armor does armor just guarantees you a couple of free shots in a gunfight which is just a free kill and that was just not fun to play against another thing that wasnt particularly fun to play against though it was fun for you to use is that there was too much boost sliding and bunny hopping in this game it didnt really feel like a particularly grounded experience you can do a lot of the same old blops 3 or infinite warfare tricks like jump up to a ledge and then boost slide off you like fling yourself really far on the map i enjoy speed i like going fast in games i dont like going slow so having the ability to boost slide feels good when im doing it its satisfying when im doing it but there are some its its frustrating to play against especially because you dont have to build up much momentum to do it you can enter sprint for like a half a meter just so long as your character is technically sprinting and then you get the boost button and you can immediately boost slide so i would turn corners on people that were just walking and they would just hit sprint boosts live super fast and they were just like take off on jet packs on their knees and that was kind of annoying most of my gun fights were like this theres a lot of just slide in hipfire smg most people that have this or shotguns were just sliding and hip-firing me and i felt like i was living this soccer commercial like it was basically this soccer commercial but with guns and people were just sliding around constantly shooting the jump height out of the slide is a little bit high – theres definitely been some screenshots on reddit about it but you can get some pretty impressive height on people just with your regular jumping and i dont know if treyarch can really fix that because we fixed the jump height then theres lots of climbing points and jump and climb points on the maps that probably wont work right a lot of advanced pathing that wont be as functional but in general if i could i would tune down the sliding and the jumping just a little bit it doesnt need to be removed because it does add a nice kind of satisfying speed mechanic to the game but it just needs to be a little bit more within the realm of sanity and speaking of sanity lets talk about the radar in general i like the ideas behind the new radar i like the fact that you can share it with your team that youre not always on as a red dot when youre shooting the fog of war the vision except i really dont like the part where they can see behind you im not sure if this was an alpha or not or if i just maybe didnt notice it but as of right now you get a perfectly spherical of vision area that you unveil as you walk around every single thing thats in your line of vision in front of you and oddly enough behind you is revealed and tagged on the mini-map kind of like a blackbird that dot is just there and it is perfectly tracked the problem with this is it really punishes people that flank and makes it super hard for me to sneak up on people because if like some guys like head glitching and holding a corner and i sneak up behind him the very second that i see him because we have a line of sight each on each other its immediately gonna tag me on his radar so hes just gonna turn around and shoot me there was a whole lot of moments where i would just scream how did i like how did this guy know i was here how did he know how did he know to turn around how could he react so fast there was no way he could have known i was there well its simply because he was staring at the radar and the moment i turned the corner and saw his back he could see me out of the eyes that he has in the back of his head and he just turned around and hosed me that was that was inferior infuriating im losing my words thinking about it infuriating i just i hated that it made it it didnt feel advantageous to flank people and that makes no sense whatsoever also it auto scans so well and so fast that in this game i stared at my radar a ton the exact opposite was true when i was playing an alpha for whatever reason i used the radar for tactical advantage but in this one there were so many people being tagged on radar so many red dots so much scanning so many things i probably looked at my radar more than the actual gameplay and i would just bumble around ignoring the game world looking for the red dots on the radar to show the way the best way i think to fix this is i had this exact same idea but a reddit user explained it better than i can his name is you slash world war two er but basically the best way to do it is to have your radar scan kind of like a flashlight like flashlight field of vision like metal gear solid bad guys thats its kind of a standard thing in any stealth game and that human being see and a little cone around them but not on the sides or behind and i think that changing the radar to be like that instead of spherical would allow people to feel rewarded for flanking and it would make a lot more sense i do totally get that they want some sort of vision behind you because in real life youre gonna hear fire breaks stamping around with his big suit and hes not gonna be able to walk up and touch you without you noticing so my suggested fix to world war ii err suggested fix is maybe have the traditional cone in front of you and sort of like a small little insular bubble around you the one that you have now is probably about seven to eight meters maybe even ten lets just tune that down to like two or three we can cut that down to about a third of where it is so if people walk up within like shotgun range melee range is really really close to you youre gonna see them but you dont get to scan them from super super far away the last big issue i had was spawns spawns for control and tdm were just fine hardpoint and dom were pretty rough for me i felt like i was spawning way too close to the action a lot of the times in the case a hard point it felt like it made more sense because i could spawn and get close to the hp and can test pretty fast though it did make controlling the map really hard but dominate was rough domination spawns were definitely very very rough for me i got spawn killed and spawn trapped just on normal spawns quite a few times but more so in spawns i have to ask treyarch why did you break the spawn beacon it seems like they tried to buff the spawn beacon in some way because when i played an alpha the spawn beacon activated nearby spawn points and it was often kind of far away for like safety reasons you would put your spawn beacon down and it would just turn on like five or ten spawn points that it was close to and you would spawn somewhere within like 20 meters of the beacon just kind of wherever it was safest however in the beta it seems to be much much stronger than that ive made me that theres more spawn points on the map maybe it tries to put you as close to the beacon as possible but youre basically spawning right on top of seraph spawn beacon which is kind of like a team tack insert and its just like wtf is going on here why are so many people spawning literally in front of me the spawn beacon is by far the most powerful specialist ability in the game it makes pushing an objective super easy if your teammates hide it well it makes defending an objective nearly impossible if the enemy team gets their spawn beacon in a good location if you have an idiot on your team that picks seraph and puts it in a bad spot its just gonna get you killed a ton because theyre just gonna sit there and spawn kill you off that beacon because you can accidentally double tap x and spawn on the beacon the spawn beacon also allows sarah after respawn in search and destroy which is disgusting all i can just say that just know you shouldnt be respawning a search-and-destroy thats not a thing but in general i get the impression the treyarch decided the spawn beacon needed to be stronger and they they buffed the lets say the distance to the spawn beacon where you can spawn so it really is more like a tack insert and it was incredibly frustrating the way that it needs to be fixed is not changing the timer its not causing it to cost more points or whatever but rather it just needs to go back to how it was an alpha at least perceptually for me or if you put down a spawn beacon you spawn to kind of soar to somewhere close to it and not literally on top of it all the time or put a limit to how many times you can spawn on it cuz right now it just sits on the map for a bit of time you can just have it like well the spawn beacon allows you like five spawns or something like that but as it is now you can just team tack insert and ive really really hate that some more minor criticisms razor wires too much hit points lobbie times too long the load times are oddly too long and inconsistent not sure why and nomad is annoying again i hate his stupid mines and i hate a stupid dog that comes in bork bork bites and i die and that is my criticism of the cod beta there are good things i can talk about i like the gun balance i generally like the team play i hate when im on team potato but in general when you have a good team playing against another good team is really fun and really satisfying in this game like almost any hero hero shooter should be and you know theres lots of quality of life improvements lots of good attachments and lots of interesting perks and combinations lots of valid gameplay strategies i think the specialists are overall less frustrating in public matches than i thought they would be theyre playing fairly well in my opinion but the things that i listed are things that i think treyarch could with a relative amount relatively small amount of effort adjust or fixed they would significantly improve the experience for everybody else when the final game comes out well guys thats all for this video i hope you enjoyed it and you learn something useful if you did dont forget to like favorite and subscribe drift her out down

ladies and gentlemen welcome back to the channel and today were back here on the blops for beta this past weekend was a lot of fun get to experience blops 4 for the very first time but now the weekend 1 is over and were all anxiously awaiting weekend 2 of a beta i thought it would be fun to just sit down and discuss one of the biggest bits of criticisms ive personally seen levied against blops 4 as was treyarch and that criticism is blops 4 is the laziest cod game ever made because all treyarch did was recycle content from their previous games now before we get too far into the video i would like to say that im going to do my best to try to present the case fairly from both sides and then give you guys my honest opinion towards the very end this has been a hot button issue in the community ever since blops 4 was first revealed so i thought you would be interesting to do an entire video exploring this topic though i ask that you guys listen to the entire video and look at all the evidence before you make any snap judgments or any quick reactions so is blops 4b play you see is called to the game ever lets begin by taking a look at the multiplayer maps that we found here in the beta one of the first bits of criticism that i saw this game was first revealed via its trailer was that the graphics look exactly like they did back in blops 3 and for comparisons sake im showing you guys the blops 3 multiplayer trailer right next to the blops 4 multiplayer trailer with no editing no color correction none of that and i think its safe to say that they do indeed look incredibly similar unfortunately we dont have any footage of a blops 3 map is returning for blops 4 because if we had that footage we could do a proper side-by-side comparison but even though thats not possible as of right now i think it cant be concluded that the graphics between these two games are incredibly similar if not identical at some points with blops 4 may be looking a little bit better here or maybe looking a little bit worse there now from a narrative perspective it actually makes a ton of sense for the graphics to be similar because blops 4 is technically set in the time period between blops 2 in blops 3 therefore it would not make a ton of sense for blops 4 to look much better than blops 3 if its technically going to be a prequel to that game a great example of this would be what we saw happened in the borderlands franchise long time fans of my second channel nears lets plays you guys know them a huge borderlands nerd and in borderlands we have the very first game in 2009 we had the second game in 2012 and then we had the pre sequel in 2014 the pre sequel was set in the time period between borderlands 1 and borderlands 2 the whole goal of the game was to basically fill the gap in the story between those two games and therefore it had graphics that were nearly identical to borderlands 2 and they even used a lot of the same assets and a lot of these same weapons and it seems like were seeing the same thing happen here with call to the blops 4 because they set the game before blops 3 it seems like they have this magic shield in front then that protects them from all criticism because if its a prequel to blops 3 then it cant be crazily better in terms of graphics because that would not make a lot of sense from a narrative perspective so is that lazy game development ill look to hear your thoughts on that down there in the comment section below but while the graphics themselves through look incredibly similar so do a bot of the weapons so what we saw during the blops war beta was a select handful of weapons that are going to be in blops 4 but of the ones that we saw above them are very similar to guns that we saw back in blops 2 and blops 3 first up we have the icr which is incredibly similar to the one that we saw back in blops 3 next we have the rampart 17 which basically just looks like a scar from previous cod games here we have the kn 57 which is strikingly similar to the kn-44 the spitfire bears a striking resemblance to the vesper the swordfish looks a lot like both the m8a1 as was the m8 a7 and the titan light machine gun looks an awful lot like the lsat that we found back in call for the blops 2 now those are just the weapons that i personally picked up on you can definitely make the case for some other weapons here in blops or looking like they were carried over from blops 2 in blops 3 but for the sake of a video i want to focus in on just these ones because i think pretty much everybody can agree that they were indeed carried over from the previous blops titles in total the blops where beta had 16 primary weapons and at least six of them were carried over from the previous games and speaking of things being carried over lets take a look at these specialists because we had ten of them in the beta and the six of them were carried over whole cloth from blops 3 you could make the argument that seven of the ten were actually carried over because while technically recon is a new specialist he copied out writers vision pulse ability so is he really a brand new specialist but at the same time you could make the argument that nomad should not count as he carried over specialist because while he is the same character that we found in blops 3 he has completely different abilities here in blops 4 so is he really the same specialist by the way however you look at it more than half of the specialist we saw in the beta were carried over from blops 3 and it does get worse when you look at the perks because ill be 12 perks that we saw during the beta which how many can they really have in the full game 11 of them were carried over there was only one completely unique perk in blops 4 and that perk was teamlink right the rest of them the other 11 were featured in either blops 2 blops 3 or in some cases both of those games and the same is pretty much true of all these score streaks this one is a bit trickier than the others because we do have the gunship which is basically the ac-130 and the ac-130 has never been in any treyarch game though it was featured in a couple of modern warfare games which were made by infinity board so does that count as they copied killstreak im not really sure but we do also have the strike team which is somewhat similar to some previous streaks that we found here in the cod franchise but it does feel somewhat unique here in blops 4 by allowing you to command these two armored soldiers and tell them where to go or have them follow you it feels somewhat unique and then you have the mantis which appears to be new but it could be argued that the mantis is basically just the cerberus from blops 3 but instead of having two fire modes it can only fire missiles so either way you look at it at least nine of the twelve scorestreaks that we found here in the beta were copied over from blops 2 in blops 3 and now you guys can see why so many people are calling this the laziest called to the game ever the graphics are pretty similar the blops 3 almost half the weapons were copied over from the previous games more than 60 70 % of these specials four copied over from blops 3 about the streaks were copied over almost all the perks were copied over you can see the argument of why people consider this game to be incredibly lazy but when youre playing blops 4 and youre dealing with the new health mechanics and the new specialist abilities and youre learning all the new maps it doesnt feel like this game was so heavily inspired by the previous games but when you take a good hard look at everything that was in the beta its clear that treyarch decided that they almost wanted to make this game like a best of blops game for all intents and purposes right by incorporating some of the best features from all their previous games into one game alongside a bunch of brand new features with a nays does that make this a lazy game i suppose its going to come down to personal preference and whether or not you believe but leaks i came out a couple of months ago so for those who dont know there were these leaks that came out about three months ago which mostly came from a guy by the name of matt harris i know about you guys dont believe anything that comes out of matt harris his mouth because he hasnt been confirmed to lie and exaggerate about a couple of things but its important to remember that these leaks in particular were also backed up by charlie intel and theyre independent industry insider sources right so its not all coming from one source its coming from multiple sources and theyre all saying the same thing and that thing is that blops 4 was initially going to be very similar to overwatch more so than already is like initially kill streaks were not going to be a factor they were going to revamp the entire perk system and blops 4 was really going to be more of a hero shooter than a cod game but once that game was presented in front of play testers again according to this league taking all the pinch of salt but apparently once playtesters got their hands on blops for this brand new hero shooter it fell flat they hated the idea it was not a traditional call to the game its not like it whatsoever and as for assault rarick has been backpedaling this entire time to make their game less like overwatch and more like call to thee which is what we now see of course with the blops 4 beta its important to remember that call t developers have a pretty tough task in front of them they begin work on their games three years before they are released so essentially they have to try to predict what fans want three years in advance overwatch came out seven months after blops 3 which was right at the beginning of when they were developing blops 4 so i do think its entirely possible that they want to make their game as similar to overwatch as possible because the hero shooter genre was on the rise its still pretty popular to this day but again all that information is coming from leaks and industry insiders and none of it is confirmed so if you believe all that then you can definitely see why people who do believe all that think the blops 4 is the laziest game ever right because you can basically boil it all down to treyarch wanted to make a hero shooter it fell flat with playtesters activision told them to make it more like cod again and as a result they have been scrambling to rebuild this game from the ground up which is why they decide to recycle so many features from blops 2 and blops 3 even going as far as to copy the entire art style this would also explain why theyre playing so much more effort into multiplayer in zombies this year because they dont have time to actually make a proper single-player campaign because their hero shooter was not going to have a single-player campaign theres definitely about we can pull from this i want to make it very clear once again that were talking about a conspiracy theory here were talking about leaks and industry insiders and now this is confirmed but it all makes a lot of sense doesnt like all the pieces fall perfectly into place but on the flip side of things to play devils advocate treyarch has been saying this entire time that they want blops board to be the deepest and most expansive multiplayer and zombies experience that weve ever seen here in the call of the franchise theyve also said that they plan to support this game for many years to come more so than any other call to the game and theyve also said that they want blops for it to be the most quote unquote blops experience possible and as a result they are incorporating a but of throwbacks alongside all of their new content including the remakes of nuketown summits jungle slums and firing range and here we are how long into the video we havent even talked about the map remakes we talked extensively about how many guns are bringing back in perks and scorestreaks and specialists but theyre also bringing back a pile of multiplayer maps into blops 4 and thats of right now we have 11 confirmed maps for the game i imagine there will be many more i definitely hope that they learned their lesson from sledgehammer games releasing 9 multiplayer maps with cod one or two but so far of the 11 confirmed multiplayer maps for blops 4 5 of them are remakes right once again nuke town summits jungle firing range and slums all those maps record be coming back to this game which again its just another reason why so many fans are calling this the laziest call to the game ever but on the flip side of things im seeing a lot of other fans saying this is the most excited theyve ever been for a call over to the game because in principle this sounds like it could be the best call to the game ever i noticed some of you guys that makes no sense whatsoever so allow me to explain traditionally call to the fans loved throwbacks thats why every time they bring back an old map as dlc people just lose their minds and every time we find an old gun and a call to the game that gun tends to be one of the most popular guns in the entire game because lots of fans already bugged that gun they have a ton of time invested into it they have a bunch of memories associated with it so theyll use it regardless if its actually good or not right and so here in blops 4 we are going to see about those throwback guns were going to see throwback score streaks were going to see throwback maps old-school cod fans love that stuff right as long as the game actually has a bunch of new content as well a bob old-school fans dont have a problem with throwbacks so long as the game isnt completely throwbacks right like thats why i personally dont think the blops 4 is quote unquote the laziest cod ever at least as of yet based on what we know so far now if the game comes out in october and like 60 to 70 percent of its weapons maps perks and streaks are all cut from blops 2 and blops 3 then obviously my opinion is going to change and were going to have to revisit this topic but so far it seems to me like they want blops were to be super expansive and part of that is combining original content with throwback content as a nod to all the old-school calls to the fans if thats really the case then im personally all for that because outside of call to the online we have never seen a proper best of game in this franchise despite the franchise itself being nearly twenty years old and i understand that doesnt seem like cod is really bad old especially for those of you who just started playing over the course of the past couple of years but the original cod game came out in 2003 its now 2018 its been a pretty freakin long time and weve never seen a best-of game outside of cod online but that does seem really count because kulfi online is only available in china so if treyarch wants to make blops for a combination of new content and old content then im personally all for that now as you guys know i have been super critical of blops 4 so far and i will always be super critical of the game i always keep it 100 cents with you guys and when the game first came out i hate it i cant even my i freakin hated blops 4 because it felt so much different than like any other cod game before it but once i adjusted my mindset and i realized that this is not going to be like any other call to the game before it despite all of the recycled content i then started to enjoy the game a lot more i start playing more control i started using a bunch of different specialists and trying out different things and after playing the same five maps over and over during weekends one i started to wonder how would control play in order called the games how would these specialists play in the order call to the games and then i remembered that firing range is coming back and jungle is coming back and summit is coming back and that got me even more excited to play blops 4 and i know above other people feel the same way right because were excited to see what the new content is going to be like alongside all the old content its going to be a really fun year for the call to the franchise in my opinion and so thats why im personally so excited for it why i personally dont think its the laziest cause ever i know bob you guys dont like the idea of old content like anytime a matpat comes out and they reveal that their remastering a map people say they hate remasters they only want new new new but if theres one thing ive learned over all my years playing the call to d franchise which has been over a decade at this point its that new content does not always necessarily mean good content right now every map they release is going to be the next high rise not every gun they release is going to be the next mp7 or the next acr there are lots of duds out there lots of really bad guns lots of really bad maps and thats why i bobis get excited when they decide to bring back maps from previous cod games because 9 times out of 10 its going to be a good map sometimes there are discrepancies like for example when they brought back resistance which ive loved back in modern warfare 3 and they put that map in cod world war 2 i suddenly didnt like the map anymore because its just did not play well in cod world war 2 as compared to modern warfare 3 so occasionally that will happen or sometimes they will bring back a map that just does not make a lot of sense like for example in advanced warfare they brought back the quote-unquote fan-favorite map pipeline i could promise you guys pipeline was nobodys favorite map back in cod 4 or back in blops 2 they decided to bring back the quote-unquote fan-favorite map courtyard over actual good maps like hassle or dome it didnt make a lot of sense so obviously there are some discrepancies out there but by and large would they bring back old content from a previous game its usually some of the best bits of content that have ever been created in the long history of the cod franchise so thats why above us are excited for the rehash content that were going to find in blops 4 though keep in mind toward nobodys fool like if this game comes out and like 70% of it is just recycled then everybody in general is going to be upset with treyarch and activision because thats obviously a lazy way of going about things there needs to be much more new content and blops 4 as compared to throwback content but i dont necessarily think that all throwback content is bad content if that makes any sense so i know above you guys still think a blops 4 as a lazy game and to an extent i actually agree but i tried my best in this video to try to present both sides of the argument theres definitely a lot of discussion to be had here and ill go to hear what you guys think down there in the comment section below but keep in mind as well on top of all this that one rehash content is not super new in the call for the franchise and to blops 4 is the fifth game in the cops universe at this point like for those adult no world it bores a single-player campaign tied in steep blops one single-player campaign therefore blops four is technically the fifth game in the sub series which means treyarch has been working on this universe for ten years now that their 10 year anniversary is coming up this november which is pretty cool i think theyve earned the right to use some throwback content in their fifth game in the sub franchise and even other franchises like the modern warfare series theyve been doing the same thing for years like people dont talk about this but when modern warfare 3 came out of the 34 weapons that we found in the base game 16 of them were copied over from cold 54 and modern warfare 2 and thats just kind of part of what makes a good series a good series race having that continuity like if blops 3 had nothing to do with blops 2 whatsoever it wasnt really felt like a blops game whatsoever right the same is true of the volume warfare games i think a big part of why these sub series have been so popular over the years is because they always have that make some new content and throwback content that makes everything feel grounded and within the same storyline like for example do you see anybody out there making comparisons saying that modern warfare 2 is similar to blops 2 because i feel so those games are night and day different but on the flip side of things you take a game like modern warfare 3 and compared to cod 4 and even though they were made basically by different studios and made many years apart theyre still pretty similar right because the map design and the flow and the time to kill and just everything else in general right so thats what makes a series a series without that theres just basically a sequential group of games with a similar name and i know this has nothing to do with cod but i think its a really good example so how many of you like horror movies how many of you have seen the halloween franchise thats been going on since 1978 this is the horror movie franchise that stars michael myers and it usually involves his hometown of hatton field every single film which is over 10 of them at this point has involved him or his home town with the exception of halloween 3 season of a which for some reason this movie released it had nothing to do with michael myers it had nothing to do with haddonfield had nothing to do with the rest of the series as a whole which made no sense whatsoever for all intents and purposes halloween 3 season of the which was basically just a separate movie that used the halloween name for brand recognition so that it would do better at the box office do we that happening in the call of 2d franchise like do we want modern warefare for to come out and have it not tie into the previous modern warfare games whatsoever because i would personally hate that like if theyre gonna call it modern warfare for captain price better be in that campaign the mp5 better be involved the m16 better be there i best see some sort of a remake of high-rise or terminal i best have an intervention and then for the a3 in there like if theyre going to be making a new modern warfare game i expected to feature content from the previous modern warfare games to make it feel like part of the series and so far thats were getting here with blops 4 though it could be argued that theyre overdoing it a little bit because face on what theyve shown us so far it seems like roughly 50% of the game were going to be throwbacks and that may be a little bit too much but of course theres still a lot more weve yet to see about this game we dont know how many maps are going to be there at much youll know how many weapons are going to be there or perks or specialists or kill streaks or anything like that so theyre still thought to be seen but so far thats the current situation we have here with blops 4 and ill go through what you guys think about it down there in the comment section below do you think this is the laziest game ever like do you believe the rumors that treyarch failed at their original vision they had the basically scrapped together a best-of game as fast as they could or do you think this was their intent right from the very beginning because theyve been working on this series for 10 years now and they wanted to do a best up call to the game i dont think theres any right or wrong answers as of right now until we learn more and thats what makes this situation so interesting but ladies and gentlemen thats all i have for you guys here today as you guys can no doubt tell my voice is completely shocked ive been recording so many videos as of recently and i wanna thank you guys so much for all the support on the recent videos as well its been a lot of fun playing blops 4 and getting to know the game and introducing my videos to a whole new audience at the same time thats been a lot of fun but of course we still have weekend to right around the corner and then of course the actual launch of the game in october which is going to be freaking thats a long side i suppose we keep forgetting that the blackout beta is coming out in september as well thats gonna be a pretty big deal so i hope you guys all enjoyed this video leave your thoughts and feedback down there in the comments section below and i hope you guys all happy wonderful day (music)

oh my goodness i really did i really wanted to like this game i went into this with very high hopes for this game because honestly treyarch has never really really let me down with a cod game before until now please keep in mind that this is the beta video im gonna be talking about the beta and this not the full game obviously we dont know what thats gonna be like although i dont have extremely high hopes for that either anyways before we get started with the video i do want to let you know about a platform called worth it which approached me about this video as a sponsorship opportunity its a platform where i can interact with you guys you it can actually ask me questions i can give you answers i can charge you to ask questions but i chose not to so theyre literally paying me to answer questions from you guys free of charge actually so if you wanted to go ahead and ask me some questions i will leave my profile link down in the description for you to go to you can go ahead and ask me something ill respond to all the questions and theyre gonna support the channel just by you guys doing that so make sure to check that out and unfortunately if this game stays in the state that it is right now i think this really might be my least favorite cod game of all time so let me explain to you why i think this beta sucks okay why this build of the game is complete garbage and if it launches in this state which honestly i think that it will launch in a similar manner this will be the worst cod game of all time and treyarch i really hope that youre listening to me im pretty sure you guys have seen a few of my videos before i know people have sent them to you so hopefully you are watching this and if you are please understand i have been playing cod since literally the playstation 2 okay i have been playing multiplayer for well over going on eight years now okay i have been a very huge fan of this franchise for the longest time this game has a solid base but as being executed entirely wrong the biggest problem with this game is the time to kill it is ridiculous it takes like six bullets to kill somebody in this game i mean there is absolutely no reason that this time to kill should ever be featured to cod game it just its horrible it can take like half a clip to kill somebody just if youre spraying or youre trying to maintain aim on them as they move around theres no reason that this time to kill should be this high it needs to be short and i say it needs to be cut probably about in half but as it stands right now its ridiculous i dont really like many of the weapons that ive played with thus far i played a couple of hours of gameplay so far ive my favorite gun probably honestly is the icr assault rifle i mean its pretty good but i think the reason that i dont really enjoy the guns thus far is number one because the time to kill is so ridiculous and to because i dont know theres the game feels weird to play it to me it feels clunky and thats across the entire board like literally the menus are so terrible i mean this game is on console right im playing on a playstation 4 and theres a cursor for the menus i cant use the d-pad to get through the menu i have to use this cursor which i use the thumb stick to navigate and i just i dont know why they thought that was a good idea the menus are ugly theyre hard to navigate they just completely turn you off for the game create-a-class is okay i guess it looks decent i mean its still hard to navigate because its laid out really weird its not laid out in the traditional sense of things hopefully these things should be somewhat easy to fix so if they do fix them in time for the launch i think that its gonna be a pretty solid improvement cuz as it is right now these menus and things are just theyre garbage gameplay wise this game would be really good if i keep mentioning the time to kill i know but that is a huge issue right now i think thats probably the biggest issue i have with the game if the time to kill was better and the weapons felt more effective i think the gameplay would be a lot better maps or you know there here and there i guess i mean theres some decent maps theres no really great maps that i played thus far which is weird because usually in the beta they give us what they think are gonna be the best maps or the most enjoyable maps for us to play on and i mean i just havent found a map yet that i really click with honestly a lot of these maps feel like theyre inspired by blops 3 but designed to buy like infinity ward right this i dont think they can really fix because the map designs are pretty much final once people play on them and become accustomed to them it would just be weird for them to change this i feel so i dont think were gonna be seeing any changes to the maps but hopefully the other maps in the game arent gonna suck because im just not thoroughly impressed by many of the maps and there is this map that youre seeing on the gameplay right now its okay its somewhat enjoyable but its not great so however the specialists in this game are so there is literally the after core which is a specialist that can kill people through walls it can completely clear objectives literally all you have to do say youre playing hard point right three enemies are on the hardpoint they dont know youre there you just run up against the wall you put this thing down and you can kill all three through the wall off the hardpoint just because hey guess what your ability is charged up you can press r1 you dont really need the gun skill or anything to get these kills like in great cod games you dont need to use score streaks to wipe the entire thing it just you just go up and press r1 if youre running pretty much any of the specialists fire break is really overpowered i would say the purifier just completely destroys people the reactor core can kill through walls and it its just ridiculous then one of the characters has this big barricade that like gives off radiation and it slows you down when youre in front of it which is already bad enough that theres a shield because they can just sit behind this thing theyve got pretty much a head glitch on wheels they can just destroy you pretty much anywhere especially on objectives and then not to mention youre being radiated and slowed down so youre taking damage slowed-down super vulnerable you cant really fight back the specialists are really in need of a nerf because theyre just gonna completely dominate this game for the game modes control is okay although im still a little bit confused on it i need to learn it i havent played very much of it but i want to know why domination and hardpoint are not in the game as standalone modes you have to play the mosh pit series to get these on the different map i just i dont understand why they thought that was an acceptable decision to make all the matches are 5 v fives which i kinda didnt like at first but ive started to get pretty much used to it because i mean honestly theres not that much action taken away by having less people ive noticed i havent really lost any engagements i feel like im still getting the same amount of gunfights and things like that that i do in other games i mean its still decently easy to find action in the game so chaos team deathmatch is stupid in my opinion because its literally just team deathmatch ported from the other game modes and theyre trying to act like its something super innovative when the only thing it really has is hey its 6v6 and you can have two of each specialist on each team which honestly thats nothing so just to kind of recap why i think this beta sucks and if it currently launched in this state it would be the worst cod game of all time the time to kill is completely destroying the game the weapons all feel weak because of this the menus in the ui a super clunky hard to navigate and overall just confusing theres not any really great maps that i could identify from any of my playtime i mean theyre all either really good or really bad but none of them are great theyre not combine from blops 3 theyre not raid or anything from blops 2 theyre not newtown i just dont think we have any classic maps on this game at least that we know of right now the maps just dont feel like treyarch maps they seem to have lost a little bit of their style and influence that they usually have they seem inspired color wise and aesthetically from like blops 3 or infinite warfare or ghosts depending on the maps but overall it just i dont know im not digging the maps too much the specialists are completely destroying the game for me at least i i think its ridiculous to think back to lets just pick any of the great cod games blops 2 ok you didnt have this crap where if youre playing hard point you had to worry about someone being on the other side behind a wall and just putting down this random ass ability that the game gives them litter simply just for being in the game realistically and it just completely radiating and destroying everyone through the wall in that game if you wanted to get a high amount of kills you literally had to run and actually have gun skill in this game there the time to kill is just ridiculously high the score streaks are great actually i think theyre pretty good so that actually gives me a little bit of hope i think theyre a bit hard to obtain because once again the guns and stuff like that feel weak and its honestly harder than i would say any other cod blops game any of them that were ive really ever played to get score streaks but the ones that i have gotten are pretty effective i think that if there are any more score streaks that they actually add in post-launch or anything or that we havent seen in the beta that theyre probably gonna be pretty good too so thats one thing i do really enjoy about the game treyarch never really seems to have a problem with the score streaks though so i kind of expected the score streaks to be good overall this game is so far just not in a very good state it seems like all the rumors about how this game was in developmental hell the multiplayer was extremely inspired by games like overwatch and rainbow six siege raw true this game seems to try and force tactical gameplay down your throat which is nothing that cod has seen literally in its history and unfortunately for fans of the series like myself this is something that i dont enjoy i dont mind the whole self-healing system i think that thats okay i dont see exactly why its necessary i think if anything it should have some game modes that are kind of like classic cod where the health just regenerates as you play the game instead of you actually doing it yourself i think that would help kind of bridge the gap between players who are split on that but this game is just inspired by every other game it seems like honestly i feel like activision kind of pushed a lot of these changes through to try and make sure that they could get cod to compete with other games and unfortunately i think thats really taking away from the core values of a cod game we all really know cod for the great creative class the fun high paced high action gameplay the great score streaks the iconic maps and just fun multiplayer but i think a lot of these things were kind of ignored during this game the maps are not great theyre not iconic in this game the time to kill is ruining pretty much everything in my opinion this game is just extremely bland boring to me it might match up with something that fans of like rainbow six siege or overwatch really enjoy but im not huge on those games so honestly guys i think cods done and thats gonna be a tough pill to swallow and i hope that im wrong im hoping that changes are made to this game that really make it good but am i gonna sit here and hold my breath no at this point i feel like cod is too busy trying to chase everyone else instead of innovating like they used to instead of making great games like they used to they feel like they have to make a game thats just like every other game on the market activision is way too involved in the process of making the games now that will to be just like every other game even games that they have some sort of ownership over has completely destroyed this game for me i dont want to say cods dead because this is still probably gonna be the top selling game of the year and theyre still probably gonna be a lot of fans of it but personally as a longtime fan of the series this beta is complete garbage and i hope that the game makes changes obviously i mean its gonna have to because i mean i streamed right hundreds of people were in there watching the majority and i mean the vast majority nobody seemed to enjoy it except for select for you and of course their excuse is oh youre just bad at the game thats why you dont like it which is the classic cod fan excuse i mean im pretty decent a cod ive been playing for a long time this game is just im so disappointed and im just kind of honestly shocked that they would actually put this game out they would put a bait out in staged honestly i would much rather not have a beta if that meant that the game would be better at launch because they focused on actually developing the game which a beta is intended to be a developmental tool to see what they need to fix and issues a community has and stuff with it but i honestly dont know if they have time to fix it two months another beta next month you know i just hope we dont go down the world war 2 train again and this game becomes good eight months after it launches and the next cod is already being hyped up i dont know how often im gonna play multiplayer in this game i think if anything its gonna have to be black out in zombies so that saves this game guys multiplayer is not gonna do it thank you guys for watching if you did enjoy make sure to leave a like subscribe if youre brand new around here were almost to a hundred thousand subscribers on the channel feel free to tell me how much you hate my guts for not liking cods blops 4 if youre a fan of it down in the comments but hey if you actually have some reasons that you think the game is great please leave them below id love to see what you guys think about it and if you think the games good maybe you can change my mind maybe the game can change my mind you know follow me on twitter at sub to optimist ruin the discord below go leave me some questions on worth it for me to answer i will be answering all of them you literally can ask me questions for free you get a guaranteed response and you can actually help support the channel through the sponsorship so anyways ill leave that down below and until my next video guys this is optimus wondering what went wrong with blops 4 and signing out

the cod franchise is one that evokes memories of when everything was better just six to ten years ago back when despite the whole recession hitting you could still come home from school down another mountain dew and play video games with your friends on xbox live and maybe make some new ones by playing online its when social media had an optimistic outlook when it was what the kids used to keep in touch and then when facebook came around its what everybody used to keep in touch before it would show itself to be the ruination of society and as a way of trying to control people its when you could still get excited for new video games and you would actually feel more like that $60 he plopped down on the new cod would be worth it its when you predicted your adult years to be moving out going to college gained a nice job not staring at the decay of society as you work as a burger flipper or shelf stocker for $8 an hour or worse jobless is you live with your parents at the age of 23 with a beat-up car and no skills other than well video games and whatnot youll turn the tv on youll see them talking about how oh there there there are all these new jobs and youre like where the hell are these jobs going to its when you could look at adults older than you and see them going places i mean i have some family members who are like distant family sure but theyve gone on to work some nice nice jobs and like for example one of them works at this major tech company designing like electronic devices and whatnot and thats when you could look at adults older than you and see them going places not being bugs who sit around all day in front of mass-market video games like the nintendo switch or marvel movies and waste their money on expensive gadgets oh i gotta get the new iphone oh i gotta get a smartwatch well i gotta get an amazon echo so the government can listen in on me during that time cod was a sales machine selling millions of copies every year similar to the business model employed by sports games and pokemons but eventually that business models been physically now and cod is no longer the game that middles schoolers or high schoolers or that guy at the cellphone shop play nowadays called duty has been a complete joke ever since the xbox one and ps4 came out with cracks showing in the series with modern warfare 3 and maybe as early as modern warfare 2 with the whole infinity ward staff thing were pretty much all the staff quit go sucked advanced warfare changed the series too much for an audience expecting another modern warfare 2 or blops 2 with the new movement system blops 3 tried another movement system that was a failure and topped it with an online filled with quick deaths bad maps and campers infinite warfare was a reskin of blops 3 nothing more nothing less and world war 2 is blops 3 – the movement system but hey it did have a multiplayer with no swastikas and multiplayer maps despite being a world war 2 game and you could play as a female soldier and you could set the transgender flag or the asexual flag or the bisexual flag to your um profile like background so you could be a nazi in world war 2 whos also a female trans women god i love diversity and yeah take that big its called duty is its woke cod blops 4 isnt even out yet and the series is really crumbling blops 4 tries to shift the franchise into a full-on multiplayer only game with no 5 hour campaign and yet it doesnt take notes from the current business model of even activisions blizzard division or any other big publisher really doing the same thing by offering free content updates like free maps or free weapons instead of instead actually activision is locking all the dlc behind a season pass and only the season pass he cant just buy the dlc separately its locked behind the season pass oh and theres a battle royale mode because even though that genre will be about as uncool as motion gimmick games or pokemon go in a few years they gotta add it anyway because thats what the cool kids are playing the multiplayer beta is locked away behind a pre-order unless youre playing the pc version this is the version im playing now blops 4 on the pc has been marketed as a return to form from the series on the pc after the series is slow decline on the pc first from the modern warfare 2 port lacking dedicated servers and activision trying to shutdown modders adding dedicated servers back to the point where i w4x is hosted on tour of all places next from a series of bad pc ports and finally from the fact that modern pc gamers being nintendo refugees and now rich kids are very apathetic about cod preferring to play csgo siege minecraft and fortnight so what does blops 4 do on the pc to make itself become the new pc game that all the cool kids want to play well first of all its being developed by b nox you know the same people who made the the amazing port of blops 3 to the last gen consoles and its also being released only on battlenet instead of steam and balidaan thats the same service that hosts the blizzard games in destiny to moving modern warfare 2 to steam in an era where multiplayer games to run with game spy and server lists with dicks disk checks being the sole drm was controversial and now as pc gamers normalize steam instead of keeping it on steam where anyone could buy it they just decide to move it to battlenet which is their own surface i mean it failed for ea and ubisoft with origin and you play respectively so why not do what failed for them and got them a lot of hatred from internet gamers by putting blops 4 only on activision zone service i mean what could possibly go wrong its not like pc gamers are just gonna ignore it because steams like the de-facto storefront for pc gaming when you download the game about net youll get tons of ads saying to pre-order now while youre downloading the beta because activision needs more money and even though their ceo is probably rich and flies a private jet you know they need more money when its done you can start the game in them well you can experience disappointments when i went into playing blops 4 i was already in somewhat of a shedty mood after struggling with the failed tech repair that arm-chair geniuses told me was fixable even though it had nasty corroded chips and bored corrosion that might have gotten to the ics after realizing that ive been fed delusions of being a computer genius just because everyone in my town struggles to use their computers just because well theres a lot of reasons i say that but thats the mentality in america nowadays if you can reset a router youre a computer genius and after seeing shed online that genuinely unnerved me and made me think that giving kids tech at young ages was the worst idea since oh i dont know the american education system that tells these same kids that theyll be astronauts and computer wizards when they grow up but in reality trains them to be good little consumers who worked as fry cooks and desk clerks working dead-end jobs that they absolutely hate on minimum wage so after drinking a mountain dew and ripping a few vapes i decided to go on blops 4 and see if this was any good like the cod youtubers who likely take money from activision are saying it is and the first thing i noticed is that they decide to throw the user interface out the window and try to create a new one and even in the beta you can see that cod adopted the same mediocre cookiecutter multiplayer menu scheme other titles too where you just click play game and you get coddled into a game with a bunch of other random people instead of gain a nice easy list where you can choose what mode you want to play that shows every aspect of the lobby right in your face like older titles did theres all the multiplayer modes seem to be crap crowded up into a few playlists which i saw for several modes and instead of showing every aspect of the lobby right in your face like older titles did including who is in your lobby what part of the menu iran and other important details they decided to throw out this and they flocked it all up i mean ill give you a little 3 that game still has some of the best multiplayer menus in any game how is it the games from 2007 which is like 11 years ago have better features than games made in 2018 i mean what the flock is that logic all right theyre getting lazy and theyre shedting the multiplayer of blops 4 is well theres only one mode and because its multiplayer and lets just say my expectations were extremely low and somehow these bottoms them out of it the first thing is that the game is badly optimised on pc now im playing the default saints and it looks alright i guess it actually looks somewhat less blurry in the footage i recorded but you know thats just what its like using obs for the first time in trying to play with the settings a bit because you know obs is a bit far from it just works click up button and get a recording and keep in mind the only reason i did this was my capture software which ive used for a long time action actually caused blops 4 to crash this is the first time ive seen this happen with any game ive used mind you and for just about any other game ive played actions been my go-to software due to its ease of use now despite the alright graphics that look ok i guess for a 360 game the game has massive performance issues from framerate drops to straight-up freezing and i got disconnected from lobbies a few times there were fewer of these when obs was not running but even though i know his framerate issues and sometimes freezes furthermore when i had the game running fullscreen i was only able to play the game letterboxed on my crt monitor and when i ran the game in windowed mode to record i noticed that my cpu usage and task manager was spiking and i dont have some shedty walmart laptop i have a dell t 7500 upgraded with dual hex cores and 64 gigs of ram and i got this thing for like a hundred bucks from a surplus sale and yeah lets talk about the game playing call for money camp hops for so when camp pops for treyarch decide to listen to the number one gameplay complaint with the series from the die-hard fan base as of late which has been boots on the ground only and so you get that you can move fast but there are no exo suits or jet packs or anything like that specialists probably one of the worst features of blops 3 make a return as you choose your class when you begin each map i got special equipment which you can use once it recharges or you play the map long enough just like an activisions other hit shooter over launched the map still feel ripped out of blops 3 r were to have her and theyre small and he end up in quarters with enough nooks and crannies for campers to hide and and kill you instantly and thats what youll end up seeing in blops 4 cappers cappers and more campers oh look you just got killed by somebody you didnt see right behind you and you also die really quickly and this is compounded by a major design decision treyarch made with blops for seeing blops 4 trailer decide to mess with the core mechanics even more than the other titles did with advanced warfare for example the core mechanics like running shooting aiming down sights and whatnot were identical to previous cod titles youd get a variant of a pick 10 system to create a class and for the most part it was similar to older titles besides some character customization and a lot of items and the supply drops were items you could add to your character – change of clothing its core gameplay was near identical to blops 2 with a few of the better features from ghosts around 2 b 3 added in like support streaks or the ability to neutralize points and domination oh and there wasnt and there was the uplink mode and that was fun as hell blops 4 on the other end tries to mess with a lot of the core mechanics yet again even more than blops sweden and it doesnt feel great to play regenerating health is gone and he now need to press a key to heal up and it can also feel like it as a wait time you know grenades one of the things you could use as a defense against campers and whatnot theyre gone unless you choose a specialist that has them and he cant equip them anymore and theres a recharge time even after you die so you die as quick as you would in blops 3 or mw3 but at least its boots on the ground thats what i award give it to me after vision the multiplayer maps are the usual cod cliches except theyre not fun because the poor map design theres a jungle area next to an icy area theres a nice beautiful rural city area that you can only move to if youre rich or that likely only ask jobs in the tourism sector of that theres a private villa theres a torn-up city thats a warzone theres a military base and theres probably a few more maps in the cod cliche like that are there as well if i could like either find them in matchmaking or theyre probably in the full game the art direction on the maps is alright even if it has that sterile tech demo or benchmark feeling and its let down mostly by the bloated engine the fact that youre still playing a shedty 60 dollar multiplayer only game or you die quick its frustrating its buggy and all that fun shed heres the thing with cod its gonna be dead in a few years at the most like what happened with tony hawk and guitar here i mean shed look how everyone who streams guitar hero plays a free wet freeware clone of it instead they all play clone hero now and why did they choose to clusterflock the multiplayer of menus i mean this is called a duty after all one of the whole reasons the older game sold so well was because you could just pick them up and play without having to read a manual you dont get any more because to save the trees and quick pretty manuals and because they didnt flock with the core formula too much even advanced warfare like i said so as many of the core pieces of the core formula of cod in the game and blops 4 is another shed show and a franchise thats more identity confused than a middle-school internet addicted teenager who brags about wanting to die everywhere they go online and decides to make it reversible body changes even though there are only what 14 or something like that age because at their school its a new subculture like goths emos and ufc fans who wore tapout shirts to class every day or more accurately its as identity confused as one of the specialists you can choose in the multiplayer who looks just like those people theyre trying to add an overwatch style specialists theyre trying to add in a battle royale mode because i mean all the kids are playing fortnight now and you can play as the average us military soldier in the year 2070 were the only people who still fight in the wars are people who look like fast-food employees and thats whats gonna happen blops work its gonna die out thats the thing its going to die out real quick youre gonna see copies this piling up the game shop and the only people playback ops four are going to be the kids who play the zombie mode and cod because thats what a lot of kids love is the zombie mode and cod that thats gonna be the only mode people play just like what happened with blops 3 its gonna be a dumpster fire it will be a dumpster fire people are gonna quit playing blops 4 not long after it comes out theyre gonna go back to fortnight theyre gonna go back to a siege theyre gonna go back to maybe csgo if theyre a pc gamer all right if theyre a pc gamer theyre not gonna pick it up theyre just gonna play csgo all day like they always do and thats what blops forge gonna be its gonna be another dead game mark my words but you know its gonna at least its boots on the ground this time i guess i mean thats what all the caught kitties want so yeah blops wars gonna be a piece of shed game and this is just the beta this isnt even the final game its like how many months its its august probably three more months before this game comes out i havent looked up the release date but spry in november i guess cuz the last ten or so called duty titles were released in november so yeah dont buy blops 4 its another piece of shed game thats gonna die off in a few months and thats all that has to be said dont waste your money on the scar batch please dont

ah yes cod blops 4 did anyone even remember this game came out i sure didnt i only remembered this game came out three to four days after it came out when i went to target after being put on ssris by a doctor and then im in the middle of buying some stuff at stores and then i see this game at target im like oh right this pile shed finally came out i forgot blops 4 even existed its easy to forget blops 4 even exists especially when the mainstream gamers are either playing for tonight or placing on the pre-order dollars on red dead redemption too now ruksar likes to take their sweet time and they release a new game and this means that their game releases are seen as huge events worth spending $60 on and then they sell for years afterwards while cod is a yearly multiplayer franchise that has been on a decline ever since the xbox one and ps4 came out ghosts just sucked advanced warfare was a good game hampered by the fact that the cod player base just wants another modern warfare 2 and everything from blops 3 to world war 2 has just been the same brown of mediocrity with a new coat of paint on it there is modern warfare master but activision tried to tie it to a higher priced version of infinite warfare and it lost a lot of sales due to that and it wasnt always like this because back when cod was big it was gaineys high budget ads such as the famous live action trailers that tried to show average joe is feeling the fight like they were in a war zone and there were tions with lots of products like mountain dew and whatnot it was a consistently a top seller every single year and everyone played cod now you cant even place a blops 2 online anymore unless you play the pc version because activision doesnt want to patch a 6 year old game with more security exploits than windows xp i mean shed you can act blops 2 online now just by going and watching a video in the theater mode yeah thats how you can cheat on blops 2 and activision doesnt even want to bother patching it so is it any wonder i completely forgot blops 4 existed but hey at least it has a battle royale mode this time right i mean all the cool kids are playing fortnight when theyre done working their mcjob or gain and doctorate in schools they end up with no skills other than how by the newest games and complain with tax time comes around or when theyre out of money because their cavaliers transmission blew up again you know i really could have bought a better car if i save the money but man i gotta buy a nintendo switch and some games for it and after all every industry i know seems to have this mindset of copy the leader except most of them do it too late or poorly which means that the end product sucks and they alienate everybody in the process and cod is not the only offender just look at how every cell phone nowadays is trying to be the new iphone anyhow when you put the blackops fourth disc into your xbox one you have to grab a 49 gig update thats right a 49 gig update now this is certain to kill your data plan if you have a shedty isp that caps your data but who cares you just want to play cod right now theres a reason for that see thanks to new xbox one updates you can see how much is installed from the disk and from the internet and well blops 4 only has two hundred megs on the disk thats right despite the game shipping on a 50 gig blu-ray nearly all the data is stored online and its downloaded to your xbox meaning that youre spending all this time downloading something that could have been on a disc the disc is essentially a glorified licence dongle that grabs all the data for the game from the internet what a waste of plastic it really is a waste of plastic the user interface is one of the worst ive seen because it basically does what destiny did it uses a pointer for the analog stick but if you move the d-pad you can select each item like you can normally by moving the stick and other cod titles so why not just use the stick for everything instead of just a d-pad like i dont get this whole stupid user interface idea by throwing out years of user interfaces that just worked all for this stupid fad gimmick whatever i dont get it but im not one of the geniuses at activision im just im just a nerd in my moms basement so what do i know now blops 4 uses the tried and failed model of offering a $60 multiplayer only game after all since so few people played cod single-player and actually beat them they decide to eliminate it and focus only on the you play hermos meaning that for $60 youre bidding only the online mode self cod so much for offering the ultimate entertainment package ii only get zombies multiplayer and you have to spend money to play online unless you play on the pc because yeah and the battle royale mode called blackout which which sucks now when you install this game the first thing that installs is the battle royale mode because they really want you to play this mode dont they i mean they want to sell this game to the fortnite crowd so yeah so the battle royale mode is what youd expect its the most boring ass game ever you walk around and you try to find someone to kill and hide in half the lobby only to get killed super quickly by a bunch of campers because whoops your gun sucked and someone else got lucky and got the sick power weapons and yeah youre dead and and you gotta just back out and find another game and if i wanted to wait at play game where i wait after lobby i just go play counter-strike or something i mean thats pretty boring too but you know at least at least theyve been playing that for years so whatever now the thing thats fortnight sucks too and you couldnt even kill it you couldnt even pay me to play fortnight unless you were going to give me like a nice e36 m3 or something and then id ask to make sure you werent bluffing or bullshedding me into a gotcha i made you play fortnight moment like a lot of friends who used to be my friends used to do theres a reason theyre former friends after all the only thing cods battle royale mode offers is quick deaths and how we look look at us we made the maps based on cod maps because the battle royale map in this game is literally just a bunch of cod blops maps spliced together into a great big open area with some grass here and there to space out the asset flips unless you obsessively play for and now you wont care for this and trust me the only reason you like would play fortnight is because your stupid friends didnt want to spend five bucks a game stop for a better online game out of the use bin millions of people play fortnight sure but thats what doctors also say before starting you on drugs that will flock you up or drugs its black box warnings about killing yourself and thats the thing i think a lot of people buying games like cod did so because they want – consistent experience and because the friends played it not a game from a series struggling with identity harder than a 15 to 25 year old social media addict that most importantly none of their friends play but what about the main multiplayer mode well the main multiplayer mode is pretty bad – its a dumpster fire its the same dumpster fire you played last year with world war two or before that with infinite warfare or blops 3 except this time its boots on the ground and it now has features from overwatch like play the game or making remains and whatnot locked behind some build up meter and specialists are now classes only one player – ty can choose but hey its boots on the ground this time right i mean i mean theres no jetpacks or anything no no no its boots on the ground so at least theres that and thats probably the only criticism activision listened to the maps are still a dumpster fire like they were in blops 3 your infinite warfare or world war 2 being cramped corner corridors that you just walk around and get shot by some camper and in domination it shows as he spawned in the same area in a vertical corridor map where all three points are front to back there arent many more open maps and blops 4 like and some of the older cods just some of the worst examples of the corridor math philosophy campers are everywhere in multiplayer and its worse and domination see campers will be around every nook and cranny in blops 4 and its made worse by the broken spawn system that puts you in the same spot over and over again rewarding spawn killers the health system requiring you to use health packs yes they added health packs in this game and thats the only way your health heals the bad map design which ive mentioned earlier and the removal of things like grenades and whatnot you could use to town or campers and this leads to a frustrating multiplayer game thats nowhere near fun and its made worse when you get killed at the spawn point by a kill streak now blops force graphics are very hit and miss and it dips below 60 frames a second especially on blackout now some maps and textures might look nice but others will look worse than the 360 cod title like you look up close and itll be all blurry youre like man im playing an xbox one game im not playing a 360 game why are these textures so blurry now blops 4 is everything i thought it would be and yet its somehow even worse its a disappointing game another example of the bland mediocrity of the cod franchise on next-gen consoles and something thatll make you wish 2012 was still the current year man remember when blops 2 is new yeah those were some fun times at least still play upon the pc if you go to that one key site and buy a key cheaply there why is it that everything that was good years ago turned to shed video games youtube videos music movies weird animators on the internet hell even degenerate art was better years ago and now its all shed oh well at least all i can do is take medication and pray to the gods that i can focus enough to make better games in this turd so yeah blops 4 is exactly what you expect its a waste of your money and if you actually wasted money at this point after getting let down by the last few cod titles and after playing that miserable open beta well at this point you kind of got what you deserve the piece-of-shed game because the warning signs were all there tell the leaks were coming out because the play testers were just disappointed at this game so yeah thats all it needs to be said thanks for watching and subscribe for more gaming videos people

man what in the world is going on with cod blops 4 you know which is really really really weird to me i just made a my review video of multiplayer like the other day and then you know i said that the game was it wasnt good but it wasnt like completely bad you know its what i expected out of cod nowadays like you know you know that the game is just gonna have issues but the game didnt have as many issues as i thought it was gonna have although i did point out a lot of glaring things after playing the game for about you know the first day the first six hours but then the past couple of days ive been playing it mmm i have no idea what i am actually playing so its like the whole entire game has just changed like its like the game has just flip-flopped like everything in the game is just flip-flopped at like the flop of a switch have you ever guys see have you guys ever seen that movie vampire in brooklyn with eddie murphy from the 90s it was one of the greatest movies of all time its one of my all-time favorites theres a scene in there man where the dude was talking i know what im just gonna play it right now thats the kind of stuff that is going on in this game right now a whole bunch of flip-flopping you dont know what is going on so anyway lets go ahead and talk about it what is going on youtube the assist man im coming back at you guys with another youtube video and the side of this video im not gonna bring you not just one but im bringing you two gameplays and these gameplays were recorded a couple days ago when for some reason the game was running like fine like the graphics looks good you know the lag decent the hit detection was good and then something happened a flip flopped and i started noticing this the other day and a lot of people have pointed this out the graphics started looking terrible the framerate started looking ridiculously i mean everywhere im walking on my screen its flickering im just chopping everywhere the whole nine and im like theres something going on im shooting people first and they are not dying but im dying instantly in like 0.5 seconds people talking about this came as a high time to kill high time to kill 1/2 a second because it seemed like every goddamn time that i was dying i was dying with like two to three bullets in about 0.4 seconds so i dont know what is been going on but then it was a couple post made by people saying that cod actually degraded their servers they degraded their servers and their servers are not running at 60 hertz theyre only running at 20 hertz and it makes a ton of sense to me and look at this gunship from the care package and im gonna let you guys in on a sneak peek of the two-game place and im bringing you in this video in two games i only died one time in this game i actually go flawless i go flawless in this game and in the next game only died one time so its not like i wasnt having good games and not like i wasnt beasting and feasting on cod like i usually do but it was what happened before everything happened so i guess somebody uncovered that their servers were running in 20 hertz which makes absolute sense cuz it felt to me like the game was running in like 2-1 either 25 friggin frames per second i mean i was chopping everywhere i was lagging everywhere i was playing with my friends and we were all complaining about the same thing were like man what is that with all this choppin what is up with all this lag what is up with constantly shooting people first and dying first and it just seemed has gotten it has gotten worse and worse and worse almost every single day this game has became worse in the beginning i tried to give this game a chance lise thinking okay the game will actually get better because theyll start making some changes to the game to some coding they even brought out a patch and ever since this patch rolled out the game has went to shed i mean i dont know what the hell they were doing the game was running in a pretty stable decent fees until that patch came out the other day and then everything started flip-flopped but i dont know maybe its the 20 hertz server thing maybe its the coding maybe its their bad terrible net code that they always have every year you guys know me man ive been a catalyst for talking shed about cods for years man for years but you know when i bought this game i already said it straight up im buying the game for the zombies really the multiplayer is this gonna be something i might play and i said in the in the video review that i did a couple days ago that im probably barely gonna play it but then i started playing it and it wasnt that i wasnt enjoying it or i was enjoying it it was just all right to me and i started wanting to play it more and ive played blackout and the same exact thing i mean dude blackout is just a constant lag fist its like blackout good not really i mean its not bad but at the same time cod blackout to me feels like pub g with better graphics i mean i really wanted it to be better than fortnight but at the end of the day its better in some aspects than fortnight its not like as childish you dont have to build stuff and stuff like that but at this end of the day it just feels like blackout to me just feels like pub g with better graphics but the problem with blackout is that its just too much chopping going on too much framerate drop the game just runs so poorly its not optimized correctly theres so many times where were just running in the games just skipping and chopping everywhere but lets go back and talk about multiplayer i mean multiplayer has got some serious freakin serious issues right now i mean not only is the game damn near unplayable just because of how bad the framerate drop is just because how bad the lag is but the game is damned theyre unplayable for not just that reason but a multitude of other reasons and i brought this up in my previous video but man it has gotten worse and i was expecting it to get better the spawns in this game absolutely are garbage is the worst spawns ive ever seen in a cod game in my life in my life the spawns are terrible it seems like every single time that you die you either spawn right next to an enemy or an enemy spawns right next to you i was playing on slums i was 100 points away from getting an attack chopper i went to the back of the map through my care package down i wish i was recording this but i did not have my software open at the time unfortunately but i swear to you im crouched down in the back of the map in the corner and they literally spawned a dude right next to me like im sitting there crouched down looking at my care package marker they spawn a guy in enemy about 6 feet away from me right behind my back to the side of me he just looks at me and aims his gun at my head and shoots me and kills me instantly blew me off my scorestreaks speaking of the games that was a pretty amazing game that game as you could see i went flawless in this game yes absolutely flawless so lets get into the next game coming up here in just a moment but going back to what i said man its like not only is the framerate bad not only is the lag so bad now but the time to kill and the hit detection in this game is unbelievable and i think that has a lot to do with how bad the frame rate and the hurts of the servers are running but my god people are saying all the time to kill is so much slower what are you talking about im telling you i constantly get killed in a half a second and the crazy part is is 90% of the time i shoot somebody first i get tons of hit markers on them first and i still die in two milliseconds when they shoot me that doesnt make sense thats not supposed to be happening and people are saying that they acknowledge you know about the server issues and theyre gonna fix it soon and that they said that they lowered the the the servers in the framerate because of the amount of players in the game and they needed to fix things but what this isnt no budget free-to-play game this is cod this is a triple a title $60 hundred and thirty dollar two hundred dollar video game owned by one of the richest if not the richest freaking gaming companies activision in the world youre telling me they said they had a lower the servers because of the amount of players what this is cod not been the biggest game or one of the biggest games that mote from multiplayer that people have played over the course of the past friggin ten years over the past decade and youre telling me that because of the amount of players you needed to what come on man modern warfare 2 so like 20 million copies blops 2 sold like 30 million copies you know that theres gonna be tons of people playing this game and i know goddamn well that this game didnt sell anywhere near a couple million or whatever and like the first few days so theres not nowhere near as many people playing this game as there was in the past lets get out the wait we all know that we wish cod would go back to its hating back to its glory years back to its time man but its not its not there anymore they did too much bullshed to alienate away most of their core player base and core fanbase and those of us that are sticking with it nowadays man its just like you know were all were already on our last leg on our last thread with this game but my god youre telling me that you lowered the framerate of your servers because of the amount of players playing the game that you need the fixed stuff blah blah look dude first of all even if okay even if you did do something like that why didnt you tell people why didnt you tell people ahead of time not make people think for an entire couple days like why is the game feels so shedty why does the graphics look so terrible why is the frame rates dropping why am i getting so much lag why am i shooting people first constantly and theyre not dying and this game i was shooting people they were dying in the game before this i was shooting people they were dying but for the past two days man has been all messed up why wouldnt you just tell people hey were having experience of some issues right now were gonna scale back some servers blah blah blah the game might become a little bit on stable might not look as good for the next day or two were sorry about this were working through some kinks nah they just dont know what the hell they doing and they would have never even have said anything or even made a statement about it if multiple people didnt actually find out and do their own due diligence and own research if they didnt get called out they would have never said anything about this at all i know this and you know this but now the game man to me is just like unplayable because not only is the framerate so bad not only is the time to kill so crazy im caught im look man im tired of constantly shooting people first im constantly tired of shooting people first every single time now and dying dying im getting hit markers shooting them first and im dying in a half a millisecond come on man this is not hardcore im tired of it im tired of the spawns havent you noticed that for some reason people in this game not only do they spawn and weird inconspicuous places but havent you noticed that in a lot of games when youre fighting somebody youre always fighting like a pack of two or three guys at a time it seems like when somebody dies they keep spawning them like within 5 feet of each other impacts youll go out youll kill two guys three guys take it all that much got a double triple kill then also in the game well just spawn another two or three guys right next to them and then another two or three guys its like what the hell man its like they just keep spawning everybody in the exact same spots and the spawns keep flipping like no tomorrow how many times me and my friends were playing we had a whole control over the back half of the map were killing people left the right thing else in the game makes them spawn right behind us like literally right behind us and kill us and were like huh and then we die we spawn we spawn right where we just died man it dont make no sense like look guys i was expecting kind of this kind of stuff to happen thats why i said look you know me well cod i really just bought the game for the zombie mode im gonna dabble with i wanted to try out black out to see how it is black outs not really cutting it for me am i playing it yes am i enjoying it i want to but the problem is i cant because it just seems like every single game i play the hit detection and the lag and the choppiness is so bad and how the hell that i just get like five people right there and only kill to make no sense but anyway man i want to have fun playing this game the zombies to me is a lot of fun i like the zombies even though they took out a lot of stuff and they changed a lot of stuff that i talked about in a previous video that i made on my channel im not gonna go in and talk about it again but my god is this blops game right now broken i mean this shed completely sucks im sorry i am absolutely sorry this game pulled a complete flip-flop in the beginning the first couple days the multiplayer ran pretty good well i probably give it a 6 out of 10 7 out of 10 now its like no bs of 1 out of 10 i mean it is so unstable it is so bad i dont know what theyre doing i have absolutely no idea what they are doing with this game if the servers are the netcode that hit the 2 everything is just off everything is off and when you got bad spots you got the smgs in this game are pretty terrible outclassed by all of the freaking assault rifles and other guns in this game when you have very when you have guns that are so overpowered like the icr every single person is using it you have all that compiled with terrible spawns theyre always spawning people in – in groups of two or three it seems like you always have to get in a 1v3 battle every friggin time it seems like youre shooting people first constantly youre dying instantly all kinds of shed aint working today how was that game than fun how would you want to play that to me right now cod black out for is in an unplayable state its like i want to play it i want to enjoy it cuz its new but i cant i spend more time raging and complaining and and being pissed off in games me and my friends every freaking 10 seconds me and my friends are like how the hell did this guy kill me this guy just spawned right behind me its like its constant it never stops i might have the livestream it just so you guys could see how crazy it is and how we all are just constantly complaining about it but i know for a fact that most of you guys are probably complaining about the same exact things and youre probably sitting there be like man i know i shot that guy first bla bla bla its just out of control as currently goes right now like i said when i made my blops 4 review video i had only played the multiplayer for give or take four to six hours and i said it was decent i said it was good but it had a lot of issues and it was bad at the same time it didnt completely suck but it was like you know kind of there but now after playing it for the past couple days man and seeing whats going on oh my god this game is terrible its gotten to the point where its so bad the multiplayer and blackout but specifically the multiplayer is so bad i dont even want to play it anymore man its been a long time since ive really did a for-real rage rant video on cod so i hope you guys did enjoy this one but i just had to get everything i just said off of my chest cuz you guys just need to hear it im tired of it in these games i spent way too much money on this game and i didnt really care because i was really buying it for the zombies but still my god this game should be running better come on man stop using the same damn servers the same damn freakin game engines youve been using for the past ten years now its out of control you guys should have learned from your mistakes i want to like blops 4 but i cant unless they change something so hopefully they change something soon cuz until then im not gonna be playing this game at all anymore im literally not playing multiplayer its not fun its unplayable maybe i play it on stream just for you guys so you can just sit there and watch me go nuts and want to kill something so anyway man i hope you guys did enjoy this video man leave leave a comment down below let me know what you guys think man how do you guys feel about the time to kill how do you guys feel about the spawns cuz theyre absolutely garbage how do you feel about always shooting people first and dying first and absolutely how do you feel about how bad the hit detection and the frame rate in the graphics are with this this inconsistent service and thats the main thats to sum up this entire rent i just went on it is completely inconsistent one game its like youre going there you feel like youre the god of war and you just mop it up everybody like mr. clean in a goddamn kitchen with a white t-shirt on and then the next game you go in there and you feel like youre playing with four goddamn fingers and you dont have thumbs and you cant kill anything it doesnt make sense so anyway man i hope you guys did enjoy this video if you did go ahead and hit that thumbs up

yogas was good avoid blank online and this is the next episode in the hot garbage series and what this is is a new series i did i thought you know what ive made so many videos talking about the broken things in the game im talking about the garbage things in the game i might as well just put it all into one series and this is the official start of that series and were gonna start it off by talking about how blops 4 is freakin broken not done individual videos talking about server spawns weapon balance stuff like that and i wanted to compile it all together and add in some new stuff that i found out about the game and then just talk about how the overall game is just broken so well be talking about spawns and servers because as of the 1.3 patch some of those things are said to have been addressed but havent been addressed some more things have been broken and well lets just get into it so were gonna start talking about matchmaking and matchmaking in blops 4 is broken and im not sure if a lot of you guys have noticed this but its i dont understand it so if im solo queueing and im playing solo were not not in a party its its okay like i i get into games but the fact that im prestige 3 right now at the time im recording this video i just get into the worst worst compiled teams like its so bad like just because im prestige 3 doesnt mean i cant carry a whole frickin team against a whole other team of prestigious and high-level 50s you know what i mean and i dont know if you guys experiencing this as well but for me personally im experiencing games where im in a team with just myself and then a bunch of level 20s and then im racing a whole team of prestigious and level 50s and that just doesnt make sense i understand how treyarch does the matchmaking and the team balancing in this game say youre in the party of three and then a party of three joins on in the lobby as well so you have two parties of three which means another four spots need to be filled so two on your team in two on the other team trai if your team has more the ages and high levels then shark is gonna put the lower-level people that join on your team if you have more prestigious and all of that compared to the other team of three then your team is gonna get the lower level players which doesnt make sense so okay it just doesnt make sense why the team balance and the matchmaking in this game is so bad what did you match make look much make lower level people with lower level people wouldnt you do a decent mix and have some lower level people some higher level people and then even if theyre in parties you mix and match you put like a higher level in the lower level and one team in a higher level in the lower level on one team dont put both lower level people on one team and then put the next level up on the other team just because one team has higher levels than the other team it doesnt make sense which is why matchmaking in this game is freakin broken servers are so best servers the servers in this game are disgustingly bad treyarch i we talked about in yesterdays video downgraded the servers from sixty hertz in the beta to 20 hertz in the full release and it doesnt make sense and you can definitely see it in the game as of the 1.3 patch ive been noticing more and more server issues and im not sure if the 1.3 patch downgraded the service to 20 hertz or if its always been at 20 hertz but as of that 1.3 patch ive been experiencing so many server issues host migration random lag spikes just players dead-ass popping up in front of me and killing me which doesnt make any sense how can someone teleport in front of you and kill you ive experienced that so many times playing this game today and just didnt make sense servers are garbage party are garbage how can you not join a party i understand all this crap about nat type but all it takes is restarting the game and then you can join the party again so its not a nat type issue its a server issue and it doesnt make sense hit detection in this game is another issue and that plays into the servers as well so if servers are running at a slower speed the refresh rate for all the players in the game is going to be slower so youre gonna think that youre shooting someone dead on accurate but theyre not gonna experiencing that thing so you may show your whole clip into someone but the player that youre shooting in is two seconds either either ahead of you or behind you so on their screen you either havent shot yet or youve missed all your shots because theyve moved away from you shooting which doesnt make sense it doesnt make sense why hit detection has to be this bad and weve had hit detection issues in a lot of the cods previously so the one in particular is blops in another trailer game which hid detection was really bad in and its the same here for blops for and im a hundred percent sure that is because of the server issue and just affecting the hit detection is so bad in this game it makes the game so frustrating to play weapon balances well weapon balance in this game is freakin broken smgs are retarded theyre so bad it takes its a seven shot kill i killed someone using 20 bullets of my gun all 20 bullets giving him markers what kind of logic is there what kind of weapon balance is that and i understand that in the beta people cry and then people complained about the smgs being overpowered in the game but i didnt understand that it was gonna be this nerves like the mx 9 in the beta was so overpowered and they just nerfed it into the ground here for the full release and now its so bad its honestly im thrown off trying to get diamond camera on the smgs because its so bad every single kill i get i feel like i have to reload because i end up having ten bullets left in my clip what kind of it is that im losing gunfights to assault rifles when im in touching distance of them they could have an ic r or a rampart 17 and i could have an mx 9 or a g ks and id still lose the gunfight even though i hit all my shots just because the pure fact that the assault rifles do more dps then some machine guns which makes no sense assault rifles are disgustingly broken in this game the i cr7 has no recall no matter if you use grip no matter if you use grip to the icr as no absolutely no recoil and its super easy to use and its super easy to be dead accurate with that gun and it does so much damage all the assault rifles do so much damage every single sword rifle in the assault rifle class is a good assault rifle and can absolutely dominate the game but the ai cr7 in particular is particularly broken in this game the spawns are still broken in blops 4 even theres one p3 patch supposedly fix this born issues in free fall and domination i play domination all games today and i can tell you that 80% of those games where i lost the game i was getting spawn tracked i can a hundred percent confirm that i was still getting spawn trap so easily in this game its so easy for a team to just capture a capture b and then came as camp the enemy spawn and see and the game doesnt think to spawn the players had a different work at a different spawn point and on the altercation that the game does spawn read a different spawn point it spawns the enemy at that same spawn point which doesnt make sense i found myself getting spawn trap – then spawn at the other enemies fly further when i spawn at the enemy enemys flag i get killed from behind because the enemy spawn right behind me this doesnt make sense i dont understand how trier can say we fix the spawns and yet they just made the spawns the same adding different spawn points in button adding of the different spawn points made the spawns worse lets talk about the freaking bug the no mad dog is stupid its ridiculous it takes two clips to kill that stupid dog it doesnt make sense it doesnt make sense why a dog is that strong and i get it i get it its a specialist ability it has to be somewhat stronger than everything else but its a freaking tank it takes so much bullets to kill maybe like one clip to kill the dog not to one and a half not to cut like seriously how have they not addressed the issue of the dog the dog is server powered like it can run it can run through your team so easily cuz it has that much health and the dog is freakin broken the shield the ajax shield is freakin broken how come how come the shield cant be broken how come the shield cant be damaged every other shield in cod previously had the ability to be damaged – then damage the person using it so how come this shield con just because its a specialist ability doesnt mean that it shouldnt be allowed to be broken if you get enough shots on it the glass is gonna break the shield is gonna break its not like its captain america shield the sun how come when youre using a ruin and you gravity slam a shield it doesnt die how do you counter that shield other than sliding around like a lunatic trying to shoot it from behind and the final thing that i found broken after playing the game today is create a class now if you havent played code before i havent prestige before in any cold duty every single quality since i cant even remember maybe modern warfare 2 or a cod 4 im not im not too sure but every single cod has had the ability to unlock extra creati class slots when you prestige so every time you prestige you gain one extra credit class slot that you can use for whatever you want unfortunately those extra creative class slots here in black goes for or broken so every single created class lot after slot 7 cannot be used and this ridiculous its absolutely ridiculous house how easy is it to allow players to use a credit class slot multiple credit class slots try a cast on it in so many cods why couldnt they just do it in this one its its so frustrating because when youre hunting for gold camera you want to use a different class setup for the same guns so if you wanted to do the 50 kills with 5 attachments and one optic youd have a class for that if we wanted to get the 50 kills with no attachments youve had a class set up for that and once you finish one challenge you change class and then you go to the next one and its super easy to do but in blops 4 you cant do that because creative class is broken after sloth 7 it doesnt make sense i i dont understand if you guys know what happened so after sloth 7 so say youre trying to use a class in slut 8 it just doesnt it just doesnt work you just use the clip created class in slot 1 in thinks that slot 8 slot 9 slot whatever anything after sloth 7 is slot 1 which doesnt make sense and hasnt even been addressed its been an issue since the launch of the game and it hasnt been addressed yet so thats all of the things i found broken in blops for today thats all of the issues i had this game today and thats a long list thats a really long list for a game that was patched yesterday and for a game that had a game update today thats a lot of issues and i dont see try addressing any of these issues besides the servers what about matchmaking what about hit detection what about weapon balance spawns the dog the shield credit class all of these things are so broken and it makes me so annoyed because i like the game i like blops war but its all of these issues are just piling on and its making it so that i dont even feel like playing the game anymore anyway guys let me know what you think in the comments down below lets get this discussion going live like if you enjoyed this video click subscribe for
