Blah, I'm happy it's there for all the 13 year old's and drunken college frat boys to buy. Not interested in Call of Duty in the slightest.

I'm a PC player but I'll always have a spot for Nintendo. I grew up as a child as a hardcore Nintendo fanboy and I still love their games. The Legend of Zelda still gives me the magic feeling I had when I was a kid. :)

Couldn't be more thrilled. I'm a Metroid, Zelda, Mario, Star Fox and F-Zero kind of guy, but I also enjoy games like Call of Duty once in a while. There's nothing wrong with FPS, if in moderation (that applies to ALL genres of course). Saying CoD is for 13 year olds and college frat boys is just as biased as saying Nintendo is for kids and casuals. It may have some truth to the statement, but certainly there are many core Nintendo fans, and many who also happen to enjoy a good FPS from time to time. I bought CoD BO2 for Wii U, and the campaign was a blast! Not into the multiplayer, where I don't last more than 5 seconds to these uber-professional CoD fanatics who can shoot a peanut from a towertop. But the campaign was very enjoyable, and despite the fact I have pre ordered a PS4, I will be buying this game for the Wii U, as well as all other multiplats coming to both systems. I value gamepad integration over graphics, Pro Controller over the Dualshock, and free online over paid subscription. The PS4 will primarily be for games which do not make the jump to Wii U.

I have 2 extra Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest DLC codes for sale- $15/ea

Wow... I can't believe the "meh" about this. It's gonna be a solid FPS, at the very least. I'll probably end up getting it.

I'm just fairly bored with the genre, and my experience with COD past 4 has been, in fact, "meh".

And again, Bioshock Infinite, still not on Wii U.

Note: The message below contains many opinions.

Honestly, you're really not missing anything. Unless they've completely revitalized and revolutionized the game since MW2, it's pretty much as generic and average of a FPS you can get. (I actually thought MW2 was a nightmare, though) I stopped playing after MW2, but I really am not getting the impression anything changes in the yearly releases. The single-player modes are short, typical, and have terrible stories. Multi-player usually just boils down to camp, camp, grenade gameplay, and many players are not fun to play with at all. (A large generalization, though, to be sure)

Unless they really pull out all the stops with this year's release, I would just save your $60 for another game. But that's just my recommendation.

Good to hear for Wii U owners interested in CoD Ghosts (I plan to get a Wii U for X). I'd never played CoD before MW3, so despite it being just like MW2, I got it anyways. I skipped BO2 despite it being more original, but Ghosts seems to be more promising. New graphic effects like sub-d for perfect circles (graphics aren't everything, but it certainly makes it feel more realistic) & other improvements are intriguing, but its the emphasis on the campaign's story that caught my attention. If I had a Wii U, assuming the port's good, I'd probably get it since the gamepad would make sniping in splitscreen multiplayer a viable strategy (if you can see a sniper's point of view, you can easily track him down to kill him in his / her hiding spot as well as avoid getting killed).

I'm actually quite excited for this game. The campaigns are usually decent, but multiplayer is always a blast! Don't know why people always just like to brush off fps games as a "brofest" thing.

Because it is. I mean I actually played quite a bit of MW1 online, and...it is. It so is, at least far too frequently to be a coincidence.

Call of Duty is ok, I guess. The only shooting games I enjoyed online alot are Halo Reach and Gears of War 3 online.
I absolutely hate Halo campaign modes. Gears of War had a crappy campaign after the first game, and I would have to say COD usually has the better campaigns.
COD still has the better campaign, but not multiplayer modes as the other 2 I mentioned, IMO.

Overall, any online multiplayer game can be crappy. I'm not sure how playing online is for you guys, but I tend to get screwed over.
Respawn kills, lag(not by me), and bad controls in some cases.
It would be cool if we get the Xbox One/PS4 port though.
It would prove that the only thing Wii U is gonna miss, is 4K.

I knew it would. We got a tonne of Call of Dutys on Wii and DS. The quality of the port, compared to the PS4 and Xbox1 versions, is what matters. Good news though!

It's Wario time Yaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!

I will probably buy the mofo and play it online for a month then it will sit on the shelf next to BLOPS2 gathering floaty dirt particles

Meh, What I want to see is BioShock Infinite With Wii remote plus Pointer controls make it on the system. But it will probably never see the light of day, which is why i'll have to opt and get a digital copy on the PS3 and snag my bro's move & nunchuck controller. Doom 4 with pointer controls would also be pretty nice....Nicer than Stacy Q's 80's dance pop lip syncing beats.

Cool. Don't know why it was such a hassle to confirm though.

Funny how they don't even called it a sequel but a version, as if even they know how similar all the "sequels" are. But in @MrWalkieTalkie's case it doesn't matter since this would be the first CoD he'd play, so he wouldn't notice anything.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

Well my next FPS will be Killzone and ignoring that.

Ghosts isn't changing the formula while Battlefield 4 is doing this

I think this is the year we see the decline of call of duty if Activision doesn't change the series up (hard to do on one year developer cycles, but dice has) not that they car since Destiny will probably become this gens new hotness.

Uh not to hate on your complain about sequels parade, but you do know that when they say first next gen version they're speaking in terms of SKU's of the game its self. They've owned up to the fact this is a a sequel however with the PS4/One release dates under wraps this so far is the only next gen (lol) version of the game with a release date hence it will probably be the first.
