    Spacey is love, Spacey is life. But seriously, Sledgehammer you are doing an amazing job on this game. And once again, thankyou Keshav, Victor and Pete for reporting Call of Duty news for the last 3 years. CharlieINTEL is the best site for Call of Duty news and information.

      I visit this site daily, yes I haven’t properly signed up yet but I still am a great fan of this site, but I have come to hate the comment section a bit, I might come off as rude but you sir are an idiot!
      What exactly is soooo great that sledgehammer is doing? You can’t just keep saying “aaa this game will be the greatest”,”sledgehammer is the best developers” and God knows what else, please wait until we see the multiplayer, last time I checked 90% of ‘us’ cod fanboys do not play single player until we’ve mastered MP..
      I mean this game could turn out garbage, I thought by now people would understand that developers would say anything to pull people into their game.. if anything I have been least impressed by cod this year, watching e3 I did not like what was shown, not based on new features but the segment shown didn’t seem so exciting, so before youkeep praising sledgehammer like they’re the second coming of Jesus please wait till you see proper gameplay of mp and hear more details…
      Like I said before you moan I’m probably a bigger fanboy of cod then you’d ever be, I just hate how people get so hyped over nothing.

      • TheShadowReaper

        uhhh…ok you’re right but you could still be a little bit less aggressive. but right now it seems the best thing we’ve ever got. who knows, you might be right or might be wrong. November 4th is the judgement day.

      • kyr95

        I respect your opinion, next time though try to be less aggresive. What exactly SHG is doing? Well, they are trying to reinvent the franchise. Lets be honest, would you expect IW and Treyarch ( as much as i respect them ) to make such a bold movemebt towards innovation? SHG and AW, might deliver the breath of fresh air that the franchise needs.You are right to say that we shouldnt be overhyped, but saying SHG isnt doing anything special is quite too much. BUT… still i respect your opinion 🙂

        • xHoii

          I apologize for my previous comment, I was just tired of seeing people praise developers before playing the game or at least having enough info about it.
          I mean remember all the hype behind watch dogs, how did that turn out?
          I as much as anyone else wish that this game delivers but I’m still holding my breath to see how MP turns out, but TBH “innovation” is a bold description, I don’t see any innovation in AW, don’t get me wrong but I don’t want too much innovation, then it won’t be cod. On the other hand I have been impressed by SHG calling in pro gamers, while most people will moan about it and say SHG are favouring competitive players (me being one) this could turn out as a good thing for others, we might not see IEDs nor riot shields or at least no attachments to make them overpowered, and maybe the addition of other incentives to public matches other than the leaderboards.
          Fingers crossed though, hope it turns out good.

          • kyr95

            Exactly we just have to wait 🙂 but you cant deny though that SHG seem like a great developer team and i have faith that theyll give us something innovating but at the same time it feels like cod 😉

          • xHoii

            Considering COD is the game the consumes most of my time I truly hope so. I have been impressed by the New sound engine and the graphics have finally changed. August is around the corner.

          • kyr95

            First time i want summer to end sooner haha. But seriously, what ive been most impressed of is the sound engine, i mean…wow.

        • Grenada!

          I could see Treyarch make big changes like SHG but IW? Hell no.

      • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

        That’s your opinion and I respect it ,but these guys (developers) they actually give full dedication to their product ,they want to deliver us a fantastic experience of gaming ,because no mather what,they are gamers too .And since they LISTEN to the community,I have no complains about them.

        • xHoii

          How exactly are they listening to the community?
          Sorry to break it to you but to me infinity ward has not been listenting to anyone but money that’s their main motivation. That’s why we have a ton of micro-transactions, you think it would take over a few hours to add a few skins and camos? CODs sales are declining and that’s because the ‘developers’ have not been listening. Now I didn’t include SHG because I will wait and see before I judge and that means waiting till August to see the MP and then playing the game myself come November. The people that are starting to listen are Activision, that’s why they’ve acquired a third team, but they started listening a few years late.
          But like I said I have hope that this COD will be different and I will continue supporting the franchise because I have come to love it.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            No no forget about infinty ward . They just want MONEY at the end of the day . Now SHG ,to me they’re different :). I should’ve been more clearer I was talking of SHG and not all developers.

          • MichiganerE

            SHG is different? SHG’s main focus is money as well. That’s how ALL companies are.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Well if IW didn’t listen to the community, Ghosts would be as bad as it was at the start, so to say that they haven’t been listening ,because they haven’t nerfed the M27 or nerfed the dog, is ignorant on your behalf. And I hope you do realise that it is a different part of IW that make the Micro-DLC and Map Packs, and not the same guys that make the patches.

          • xHoii

            That’s not what I’m talking about at all, I’m talking about the game overall, since the day it came out, bringing back danger close, making over powered classes such as the riot shield with radar etc is not even what am talking about, that is minor problems that can be patched but us fans have been asking for a new engine for years did the developers listen? We asked for play styles like mw2 yet we got large maps that do not feel like cod, when exactly did IW listen? Nerfing guns? Of course they have to do that otherwise the game is not balanced which is part of the package they promised! Now back to microtransations, it doesn’t matter who makes them IW and activsion are after the money, you’re missing the bigger picture.. and TBH I don’t want to argue over anything this is my point of view and I believe it to be true, COD is in decline because the developers could have listened earlier.. I’m off now, I’ll enjoy one of your videos, catch up with game of thrones or maybe play ghosts, no more replies from me on this matter. Goodnight.

          • jordanxbrookes

            The reason why Ghosts is what it is, is 1] The multiplayer I believe was heavily influenced with what everyone said was bad about Black Ops 2, and 2] Infinity Ward had their own vision and take on Ghosts’ multiplayer. I don’t mind the micro packs since it’s optional. You watch my videos? Awesome, thanks dude 🙂

          • TheShadowReaper

            Ghosts is still a dreadful port on PC. did they listen there? also where are my PC settings and sliders for FOV? there’s a tons of problems with that game but like i have said tons of times, props to them for trying cause lets be honest, there’s no way you can turn around such a colossal fuck up like Ghosts but at least they try. but minus some points for that dreadful PC port imo.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I don’t play PC but I do know that it’s pretty much crap to play on. I’m pretty sure IW added a FOV changer to PC a while back.

          • TheShadowReaper

            oh fuck me, you’re right. they did added an FOV slider. but i guess that only fixes like what, 1% of the problems Ghosts has on PC unfortunately. =.=

          • jordanxbrookes

            I understand how pissed the PC players are, as a console player I feel your pain, unless your a so called “PC Elitist” who goes on comment sections saying “PC Master Race, dirty console peasants”, if that’s the case, I’ll be like “Hahahahaha enjoy your crap PC port”.

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah but there is one thing that people seem to forget or dismiss when they talk about these things. if i am a PC elitist then that makes you or any console peasant a console elitist. if i am all over the place about “haha consoles suck” and you are “haha enjoy shitty port” we are no different in spirit you see. but the difference is elsewhere, in the platforms we use, but the philosophy is the same. do you follow me?

          • jordanxbrookes

            I understand, but I’d be saying that in retaliation to the PC Elitist comment, plus PC is more powerful than consoles so it’s not exactly Console Master Race or Console Elitist or PC peasant. But that doesn’t mean it’s ok for PC players to brag and bash consoles.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I maybe an idiot, but I know the single-player will be good, I’ve seen it with my own eyes. So I can say the single-player is going to be good. I might have been hyped up for multiplayer, but from what I’ve seen with the campaign, I’m very interested to how multiplayer is going to go about, especially since it’s a new developer(Yes I know they co-worked MW3 with IW, but it’s their first Call of Duty title that is being made just by them)

        • Grenada!

          You’ve seen the whole SP for AW? How? Or are you just judging the SP from a 2 minute trailer like a lot of people are doing here? I remember the same thing with Ghosts, on how they got a award winning writer in to do the story and how it was going to be the best, but it sucked so bad and has the worst SP in any CoD game to date IMO. Play the game then judge it.

          • jordanxbrookes

            No I never stated that I saw the entire campaign and no I’m not judging off of a 2 minute trailer. I’m judging off of the actual gameplay that being ‘INDUCTION’ and so far I know campaign will be great. I’m sorry if not everyone is a grumpy goat like you.

    • Choppabro2psn

      You are correct about CIbeing the best site for all things call of duty. It’d be perfect, however, if the comment section was more positive than toxic.

    One month till the multiplayer reveal !!! So excited!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      I don’t know why we have to wait until August/September while all these guys get to see multiplayer early. I’m growing impatient, I want to see it now. :/

      • UW0TM8

        Patience … patience!

  • Kevin Spacey! Just Wow. Looking forward to August!

  • Sentinel

    My area of expertise in a video game. SHG is really pushing the limits of next gen consoles. I’m glad that they are part of the COD franchise and now my favorite Studio for FPS action games by far. Btw, in other news, ya’ll should give sniper elite 3 a try if ya’ll open to more shooting games. The bullet damage animations are insane and highly detailed on PS4!

    • Greatone718

      I may have to give SE3 a try, I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. PS4 check! They need to push the limits on these consoles, only way to ensure their durability. SHG needs to restore the fun factor, fast paced action. Ghosts was straight horrible.

      • Sentinel

        If you wanna get a headshot and watch the aftermath in slow monition, to see how the bullet will crack open a skull in seconds and highly detailed? You won’t return this game after getting it lol and yes, I know SHG will deliver in all those factors. With a new suit and set of abilities, new innovated gameplay mechanics are to be expected in both single player and online!

    • …..

      That pic is from Sniper Elite V2 though lol but that was epic too

      • Sentinel

        Yeah, I didn’t find any on the Sniper Elite 3 since the game came out like yesterday lol but you get the idea

    • Mitch

      Anybody wants that picture as a feature for final killcams in CoD?

      • jordanxbrookes

        What if Sledgehammer was one step ahead of you? o.O

      • Sentinel

        Everybody would go crazy to get the last kill cam for that! lol

      • Testicle shots for dayZ.

    • Got SE V2 for free. Optimization is too meh.

      • Sentinel

        Try SE 3 on next gen if possible. If you are one of those player who wants everything to look good on the screen before playing the game, you won’t be disappointed. SE 3 its a big improvement from V2

    • xHoii

      I doubt they’re using half of the power of next gen consoles, no developer have yet optimized the full power of next gen consoles. Look at cod 4 and compare the graphics to ghosts, they’re just scratching the surface.

      • nutsack

        Actually, the order 1886 will pretty much max out the ps4’s power

        • Rai

          Nahnahnahnah. Uncharted will.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            The Order looks better than Uncharted 4 tbh. Looking forward to both.

          • AN1ICONSTITUTION

            You haven’t even seen UC4 yet lol. Only a cinematic trailer.S

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            The trailer was in-engine, real-time.

        • MichiganerE

          Developers said the same shit about their games maxing out the Xbox 360 and PS3 at the beginning of the last generation and look at what happened, games look far better then in 2005-2006.

        • Wraith

          The Order is already pretty much beyond the PS4’s power. Technically, I suppose that is true. But developers still need time to play around with their projects and experiment with the consoles to make changes and improvements. So this doesn’t mean we won’t get any better looking games, they just currently haven’t fully understood how to utilize the tech to the fullest.

          On a side note, the developers of the Order stated that they wanted to make the game more cinematic like a movie. So they thought of 24fps like in movies(are you fking kidding me) but up’d it to 30fps cuz 24fps doesn’t play well. Are they trying to tell me that lower fps makes the game better and more cinematic. WDF. Sounds like they’re trying to trick people into thinking that this is their choice and definitely not that the PS4 can’t handle the higher 60fps.

      • Sentinel

        Yes, the graphics are stunning right now so imagine these upcoming years for all the games on the next gen consoles!? O_O Staring at real, highly optimized skin and facial motion reactions. Plus 3D! psst Most of us would probably forget that we are staring at the TV screen! lol

    • TheShadowReaper

      ok, i’m gonna try Sniper Elite pirated and if its worth my time i’ll go buy it else its an insta-uninstall for me. looks good tho.

      • Sentinel

        Whatever floats your boat

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        So douchey.

        • TheShadowReaper

          do you mind elaborating? cause i didnt quite catch you there.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            He means you’re a douche. Glad to elaborate.

    • Grenada!

      I’ve got Sniper Elite 3 for my X1 and it’s pretty good if you’re into shooting things up and stealth games. The Killcams on SE3 are the best I’ve seen in a video game.

  • Rorke File

    The graphics are so damn good !

    • kyr95

      You should see the people’s opinions in the comment sections. God… -_-

      • :D

        I know can’t stand reading comments about this game anywhere but here I see nothing but positivety for this game at CharlieIntel anywhere else just hate but I think those people are just hating on the game because everyone else does and want to feel a part of the “cool” crowd.

        • xHoii

          Very true and it’s just sad!
          I mean why waste your time complaining about a game you don’t play or enjoy. I’ll never understand.
          I played BF4 at launch and it was broken as hell, totally unplayable yet I did not go to comment sections and bash the game, but some people still said how much better and smoother BF4 was.

      • I Know, all those haters scratching the ground.
        But we don’t really care, and they just waste their time (Get dirt under their nails)

      • Rorke File

        This just a demo I think …

    • Grenada!

      They are good but the gun textures are meh. But hopefully they’ll change that before release.

      • Rorke File

        Just a demo yet I think ..

    -Back to AW-
    I’m really glad to see that SHGames are polishing even the most slightest bits of the game. The animations are gonna be so smooth and fluid, I feel it!

    • kyr95

      He does look like Tony Stark 😀 And yeah everytime something new about is is being released, my hopes are growing even more 🙂

  • Thecallrocks

    So remember when infinity ward released this kind of stuff and always said “this is going to be the next gen call of duty changer”, “Ghosts will feature the best multiplayer mechanics ever and will be greatly improved..”, The new (NEXT GEN ENGINE) will blow everybody’s minds to see how we came across the improvement of call of duty shooter”. K yeah infinity ward stfu the game is so fukin hard to play I suck I that crap and all other cods I’m good at and started to be good at like 2nd or 3rd prestige maybe even 45 but now at ghosts I still suck at 2nd prestige level 28 wow amazing improvement on the game to making it super unrealistic mechanics that can’t be played… Now I’ve seen some ACTUAL game play footage from AW it’s going to kick Infinity ward’s ass out of Activisions sight << Sorry for bad English #PowerchangeseverythingAW!!

    • SHGames rules

      The most ironic thing is that Advanced Warfare is more innovative this year than Hardline… the case has been opposite until now.

      At the end, it already sounds like it is atleast going to be better than Ghosts, which is already victory to the players. 🙂
