It's just pure gimmicks now to try and sell Call of Duty, its a real shame what they have turned this franchise into it really is and I can honestly say for the first time I doubt I will be buying a COD again they have just lost the plot completely with no sign that it will ever change for the better.
I've been giving this a lot of thought rankismet... and you know I usually agree with you on this topic... but this time I am going to surprise you.
I was thoroughly impressed with this DLC announcement. Maybe I am setting myself up for disappointment, but it seems to me like they are trying to go in the right direction here. I love the idea of each map having unique killstreaks, I think that keeps the game fun and fresh. You know you are going to be giddy the first time that Warthog streak comes up for you or you get to mow people down with the Chopper Gunner.
As for the Aliens, I think I can live with it. I still don't want to see the Series go too far astray, but I am encouraged to see the Devs having some fun with this stuff again.
I think they somehow got away from that and tried to just make content they hoped people would like. It seems to me like they really created some fun ideas for this DLC, and that bodes well for us as customers. If they include some outlandish stuff *FROM TIME TO TIME*, I can live with that. I just want the game to be fun, and including some crazy stuff here and there is one way to do it.
Looking forward to seeing how this pans out, and hoping they don't make us wait till August to play them in regular rotation.
