Have to say, Jim; the Jimpressions flow a lot better than they used to. Good job, man.

I think Jim needs to have someone help him. Someone who shares Jim’s sensibilities on such issues as loot boxes etc. And microtransactions and gambling and paytowin etc but has less cinicsm and negativity. Because though everything jim is saying with historical context is true…it used to be better…its very basic and by the numbers and isn’t unique in any way…for a new player to these series or a new gamer if the game is fun or good on any level that should be highlighted. I guess I’m saying there are audiences out there who aren’t veteran gamers and haven’t… Read more »

If only there were literally anywhere else on the internet to see people’s reviews of games.

It might be that I’m a FEEEEEEmale but I really don’t get the CoD appeal anymore. When when I was a little nerdlette I got it. I remember how fucking amazing Call of Duty and Medal of Honor was with their single player experience that made you feel like you were on Normandy beach. I remember begging my dad for a 5.1 speaker system to experience that and my neighbors coming off wanting to know why the little girl next door had sounds of war literally shaking the walls of their house. The series and WW2 games in general give… Read more »

Hello again Michael, you’re not taking hints are you? (This is another at, he used a bunch of these to evade my blocking him on disqus back in the day to spam comments at me and uses them to evade being blocked and muted on other sites as well)

It also uses the exact same twitter name as Wildstorm so it very definitely another of his alt accounts.

I gave up after BLOPs 2 having skipped MW3. I think that the reason that CoD still goes strong is that it’s a game that defined a generation in the same way Final Fantasy, Doom/Quake/Wolfenstein and Halo have defined their respective generations as well. It” come to pass as the focus shifts to something else (my guess is Destiny style quasi-MMOs). I still buy Halo games, even though 4 and 5 weren’t anything special, because it’s the franchise I grew up with and the one that got me into videogames. That’s just how these things work. Give it 3 years… Read more »

Well, this exact iteration is being derivative on purpose, so as to exploit and cash in on nostalgia. Looking at the level of public interest, I’d say it’s mostly working. Not on me or you, apparently, but other people.

LITTLE bit off topic(?) but you can probably cleanse your pallet with WolfenDoom: Blade of Agony. I actually just installed it today after watching this video to sorta scratch that “WWII shooter itch.” Probably a little strange to go to after you’ve already played New Colossus, but it’s got some pretty neat ideas built into it.

Jim, I would like to know if you already know enough to have an opinion on this, but it’s directly related to it in a quite personally worrying way; My little baby sister has been watching these YouTube videos of random people opening random stuff…all inconsequential at first glance, but it seems to be her main source of excitement with easy access. Now… let’s be honest…when we were kids we were very good at forming positive memories in simple things..and…anyway…like, I am really worried this is some sort of subtle nostalgia manipulation, aka…brainwashing current kids to be more accepting of… Read more »

So, basically folks, this is Medal of Honor: Allied Assault but Activision is still gonna charge you full price because somebody needs to pay Activision for ripping off Medal of Honor: Allied Assault.

Can you confirm or deny if the Loot Boxes are Microtransactions or not?

Yesterday I was woken up by a friend who called me to tell that he just got the game, and couldn’t find a single way to buy a loot box, instead it’s all earned in game only.

If this is true, I feel a lot better about the inclusion of loot boxes, but once the turn them into microtransactions, then I’ll be pissed/offended again.

There’s a history of publishers having loot boxes etc. without payment options at launch and then adding them in after the main wave of coverage has passed so expect the same here.

Of recent game releases with lootboxes, most use the trick of having players acquire a currency, whether premium (like in Destiny 2) or earnable in-game (like Assassin’s Creed or NBA thingie), and then to have players buy lootboxes via that currency.

This is more insidious than directly buying lootboxes because you usually can’t buy exactly a lootbox’s worth of currency, instead you’ll buy a lootbox and be left with almost enough for another… which is when the gambling addicted or children get caught in cycles of overspending.

Apparently they are adding the “Paid” option on the 14th so yep, total and complete bullshit.

Never been a fan of those parts of the game where it just becomes a short cutscene, like in the video where Jim gets blown up while sniping and crawls along. Sometimes they can be good if done well but they ain’t usually done well.
I remember playing one of the old COD’s possibly a MW one thinking that my character had narcolepsy because he kept passing out on damm near every level, and after a while yelling at my screen for him to just get the fuck up and fight… lazy weak ass prick.

The in-game currency that you buy the loot boxes with is stolen Jewish artwork.

Really not a fan of all the shaking, blur, dust and whatnot. Started watching the video on the old monitor and wondered at first, why it ran in 480p. Moving the tab to the new monitor and making sure it ran in 1080p fullscreen brought no improvement.

What I’m trying to say is, it looks brown, mediocre and generally unappealing and reminds me of the pumpernickel my gramps used to eat. Watching him drop butter, ham and tomatoes on it didn’t make it any better, either.

when your character is assembling that pipe near the beginning of the video… is there a hamster poking out of the end of one of the pipes?

I won’t go too far into it, but actually no I know this one for a fact. He’s used this account here before.

He used it briefly a few months ago before starting to post as King810Rules an account which was deleted.It was after that he started posting as Machine Dirty. I’m guessing he has gone back to this account as it was known who was posting as Machine Dirty.

Thanks for the heads up. I forgot about this one. He calmed down with the alt accounts, I forgot about which ones he had been using.

Michael, you are not welcome in these comments anymore. You’ve used up all good will you had. You can still read everything, but you are not allowed to comment anymore.
