Because of the huge (seriously) views in the last days I’ve decided to pick up my blog. Because I’ve been busy with other things lately, I haven’t had time (at all) to write here… Sadly.
However, I will make it up to you, soon enough.
For now (as it is 5:10 am here) enjoy this new video, made by Drift0r, about news and stuff about CoD:Ghosts! This now incorporates all news we got from the official press release, and so is up-to-date. He also got some new, leaked info there.
It also say’s that there will be all-new characters (along with an all-new world and experience). This means that, most likely, Simon “Ghost” Riley will not return to the Call of Duty franchise (for now)…
Keep blogging, and see you soon!

No post yesterday – I know! It’s because the fact that I was in a car accident yesterday and the rest of my day was filled with field-hockey and stuf that I didn’t get to write a blog.
But straight to the point.
I came across this site (beware, it’s German) here. And they had a bad, BAD april’s fools joke. Go see for yourself. I just hate them because when I search for something serious and I find this, well, then I wasted my time looking.
Well, basically, that’s it for today. No real news, no new rumors, no nothing!
I’ll get back to you soon!
Hey guys (and gamer-girls!),
Today, I’ll take a critical look on several pictures/screenshots out there. Show you what I think about them, why I think they are fake (or not) and what makes sense to my MW4/ghosts senses…
Allright – let’s get started. This one is fake. The text in the menu is not correct – it should be: “Pick up where you left off” at least. Also, the text in the upper-right corner is way too bright. Regularly, that has a lower opacity (is less visible against the background). Check MW3 and/or Black Ops 2 to check it yourself.
This is not a picture but it is a ‘concept’ for MW4. This is far from realistic. First things first: Campaign that takes you where MW2 left off? Where is the green MW4 sign? And Spec Ops would be replaced… That is not realistic at all. But it is well edited – you gotta give people that.
Obviously fan art – check underneath the MW4 logo – there’s the sign by who made it. Not bad – just Soap that is faded badly in there who makes this a bad cover overall. That MW4 logo seems good, but the rest is fake. Nice concept tough!
Finally, this last picture looks okay. First time that the box-art would completely match the CD-art and I don’t think it’s real, because of the D which was stripped out to make room for the hole within the disk. But again, nice art, and I think the most realistic we’ve seen yet (on this blog)…
Well guys, that’s it for today! Hope I made some sense out of all those pictures out there, and I hope to see you here again!
Quite a long post – I had to take a bit of a break, needed to write an essay. Sorry, but an extra-long post to make it up to you!
Today, when I was not busy working on an essay for marketing, I stumbled on a site where they keep track of any video-rumors about MW4. I’d say, check it out if you are new to this blog. Most video’s I did post or mention, or simply aren’t all that important. But just to be complete.
Also, idigitaltimes finally picked up the rumors. They made a great post, in which… They mention a release date (11-11-13) with a possible poster… And that poster is interesting…
That poster is specifically interesting because of the subtext. Here’s why: Remember drift0r’s video? He said that the game would be set in the future, but would use ‘current-gen’ weaponry, due to some event in the single-player campaign. The apocalypse, zombies, something that forced them to use ‘old’ weaponry. Those could be the basics they are talking about – back to then-historic weaponry. Fallback option. Something like that.
They also have a supposedly ‘leaked’ release poster:
What we are seeing is futuristic, but not like 100 years ahead. Still flashbangs in the way we know them, a sight like that looks like a low-magnification scope, and the helmet doesn’t look too futuristic either. So basically, I don’t know how believeable this is. It looks a bit like the guy from the MW3 campaign – the leader from the Delta team that is called in. I can’t remember his name, but that’s what it looks like.
At the end of the post they also have a ‘inside source’ with multiplayer info!
DOLFIN DIVING HAS BEEN CONFIRMED! By that source, so take it with a grain of salt, but anyway, that’s besides the point. It’s exciting indeed! Here’s that video with multiplayer information, and here is the post about it.
That’s a LOT of exciting news. A big post for a day indeed!
Well guys… This was it for today! Enjoy, and keep blogging!
I wished for it, and I got it. Something happened!
All of you, turn on your consoles and/or PC and hop into Call of Duty:MW3 (multiplayer). And after all those rumors, after everything said and done, guess who just again popped up into those menu’s?
Yes! The one and only. Ghost!
Well, thanks Infinity Ward for giving me that to write about
But does it also mean something for MW4/CoD:Ghosts? It might. It might not. We simply don’t know. But I think it does mean something. A ‘mention’ to the community that we are in some way right about the upcoming title. I hope so!
Well, that’s it for today! Two short blogs, I’m sorry! Tomorrow will be really short, because I have a deadline (Thursday 15:00, GMT+1) that I have to make or otherwise I’m screwed – so until then, expect not too much!
Love you guys, and keep on blogging!
Well guys, hey.
After spending a little time on that YouTube post, here is some more-serious content.
Digging into CoD:MW4 turns up more and more results.
I found this thread on the CoD.com forums (will open in a new tab). And altough I think that most of that post is nonsense, all nonsense contains at least a little bit of truth. If you scroll down to the pictures of Steam showing MW4, specifically this one
It shows the MW4 logo. And I think that IF there actually WILL be a MW4 – this will be it’s logo. Why? Well basically, because it looks awesome and I find it reasonably resembling the MW3 logo. It makes sense. And for all rumors, that’s important. It should make sense, to be possibly true at all.
I turned back to the first rumors of the all-new CoD (that started to grow in the internet-world just after the BO II release, in November 2012) and found this. (Opens in a new tab). It has some leaked lines that are spoken by a certain character that seem to indicate Somalia as a location and a ‘Modern Warfare’ setting…
But still no statements by Activision OR Sledgehammer Games. Yea – I goofed. Sledgehammer makes the next CoD, not Infinity Ward. Bad mistake – should’ve known. Anyways… This is it for April’s Fools day!
Yea! There’s more NEWS here! Excitement!
First, look at this video from Drift0r. Just listen to what he says.
This is AWESOME! Activision makes it’s OWN engine! This is a massive improvement. This is a ten year leap forward in time (as the Quake engine used in all the previous CoD‘s (from CoD:4 onwards, yea…) is from 2003).
Well, that is SOME news. More links about the engine: 1. Here and another one: 2. Here (youtube video by Gamefr3akable showing some engine stuff).
So more detail, more quality, more graphics. One thing this does make likely – the idea of ‘next-gen exclusive’. Because I doubt that this will be running on the old consoles, they are just too old. The performance is just not sufficient I guess.
Drift0r also says more about MW4/Ghosts. Namely, he doesn’t know more than he said. He shared all info he had…
But… Drift0r missed one little thing, I guess. He missed the picture that Infinity Ward posted on their Facebook. See my earlier posts! I messaged him, he might use it, he might think it’s nothing, but I think differently! Price will, in some way, be BACK in the next CoD!
This tells something as well, because Bill Murray said that he would only be within the MW franchise, so I am more and more tending to a game that does fall within the MW franchise, but the final ‘episode’ in the franchise.
So rumors, rumors, rumors! And about one month towards an innouncement!
Yesterday this picture was released on the Infinity Ward Facebook page:
Is that who we thinks he is? YES, it is! That is Captain Price! Would Drift0r’s rumors NOT be true then? And Bill Murray be right?
Or are the two rumors together true? I don’t know.
But it is an official source, so it is exciting news! Price WILL be back! In some form or another!
Check out the Facebook page:
I’ll be back shortly with more, I’m sick in bed and not really in the writing mood currently!

Hey guys (and girls),
Remember that video I posted yesterday? It got attention! I saw this (DSO-gaming) and that made me wonder, with the new Battlefield 4 footage revealed yesterday, might it be something to draw attention away from the Battlefield footage? And thus be the real thing? I don’t know, I don’t think Activision would be leaking 40 seconds of non-gameplay to counter 17 minutes of BF4, to be honest, but it might just be enough…
Anyway, I wanted to share with you the Battlefield 4 footage as well. I am a CoD fanboy (faster paced, smaller maps), but there’s some nice things in here!
Let me know what you think!
See you soon!
