I'm fucking sold now.

I said I will never buy another CoD game ever again, but here they go and they are throwing this option in to play as the dog. Now I'm really interested in the campaign.

:p they don't, another game who's name escapes me at the moment did the 'play as a dog' thing to, Yahtzee reviewed it awhile ago as I recall.

That said, this is still kinda cool, not enough to make me wanna a CoD game in my home, but still cool
It's about as innovative as their incredible fish AI. Meaning it's already been done years ago but they hope noone remembers and will call it innovation anyway.

It seems to be an unpopular opinion on this forum, but I for one can't wait for new Call of Duty. Y'know, "can't wait" as in a year of waiting for new generic shooter (that's mostly only generic because other developers are majorly copying them more than the games themselves being bland, just throwin' that out there) literally kills me. I'm typing this from the graaaaave, oooOOOOOooooo!

But I'm interested in what could be done gameplay-wise from a reconnaisence position, providing intel and distraction for the rest of your team rather than just point-clicking anything that moves until it stops moving, occasionally holding W through set pieces. And while the gameplay will likely follow a "Press button to mark enemy, wait for sniper to take them out" format, eh. I like a little simplicity between my RPGs and 'complex' shooters.

Play as the dog, eh?

Day one purchase if they actually map 'lick your own crotch' to a button.

10 years ago this concept would have been awesome, there would've been all sorts of goofy crap you could get away with. Now it's going to be a series of railroaded extended cut-scenes that don't let you have any fun.

Oh yeah, real original guys! [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog%27s_Life]

Hey, Infinity Ward, I don't know a whole lot of dogs that play video games. I DO however, know a lot of WOMEN that play video games. Sure would be nice if you had a FEMALE avatar, but no. I guess getting to play as a dog was more important.
Yeah, okay, this is also something that needs to be brought up a few more times.

A lot of militaries in the civilized world have gotten past the whole "No women in warzones because our boners get confused" idea, and the US itself passed that legislation riiight around the time this game would have gone into development. So what the fuck, Activision?

Are we really going to pretend that any substantial majority of players won't buy this game because it has a female player character? It's Call of Duty, most people buy Call of Duty games because they're Call of Duty games, and we want more Call of Duty (Because the other alternative is buying EA's yearly Call of Duty clones, and those are always terrible).

It's not like you can't have the main protagonist be a dudebro, Call of Duty has always had multiple point of view characters - that's the whole point! And don't do it the cheapskate way EA did it with Battlefield 3, where the female PoV character has no voice, is never seen on-screen, and isn't allowed to hold a gun. That was bullshit.

With this development, I guess the next installment will be called "Call of Duty: woof woof bark lol you're a dog"

Whats so special about that? The point of view will be lower, you'll be faster and will have no gun for a few moments.

I don't see how this gives me a super special unique gameplay in "CoD: Shoot more brown guys".

What if they do a flip and every human on the team dies instead and only the dog lives and takes revenge on everyone.

(See what I did there? A flip? Ok I'll go stand in a corner now...)

I'd honestly play the hell out of that.

I'll never understand the love for dogs. Adding a dog is obviously just a cheap marketing gimmick, and yet it will sell millions more copies. Especially since no one is even going to bother playing the singleplayer!
Also; the dog is still going to die.

OT: From the information I'm reading, this call of duty will actually be different: Russians are NOT the enemy. Now I want this game.
That's because dogs don't have a bone to pick with the Russians.

Well, COD does innovate, just within itself. Despite what people may think, there are changes made between CODs. Those changes just dont benefit the whole of gaming like people typically think "innovation" would do...

I'm kinda skeptical about the whole dog thing. Are we really getting a playable dog? Or are we getting QTExtravaganza through the eyes of a dog?

Cause last time they gave us nano climbing gloves and rocket jetpacks and... yeah. A lot of playability that was.

I would say that what CoD does is continually polish itself. It introduces new single-player gimmicks and has cleaner, sleaker, more streamlined gameplay, graphics, and levels. It doesn't really overhaul itself or really become very different from what it used to be, it just does it always did but more gracefully.

As for the dog I have no doubt it will be the best characterized character in the single-player campaign by default.

Sweet. Now I just need to wait for someone to adapt that engine to a pure dog simulator. I wanna play as a Welsh Corgi and just be adorable. Oh, and perform a "vicous lunge for the throat" if the AI pretends to throw a ball, but doesn't really throw it.
So basically Dog's Life, but hardcore?

You should be able to be captured randomly and put into a dogfighting ring. Show that grim doggy underworld.
