Modern Warfare 3 or 2.5?

So, here we are kiddies, coming upon yet another “Call of Duty” release, and I’ve got to say I am not anticipating it at all.  Why should I?  Year after year the same mindless drivel is churned out by the “good” people of Activision and sold as a new release.  Of course “Modern Warfare 3” hasn’t disappointed me in that category either.  Here’s the rundown of their “new” perks and killstreaks:

Perk Slot 1
Extreme Conditioning: Sprint longer distances +: Climb obstacles faster
Sleight of Hand: Faster reload +: Faster weapon swapping
Scavenger: Reload ammo from bags +: More ammo to start
Blind Eye: Undetectable by support stuff +: Launches lock on faster;, extra damage to support
Recon: Explosive damage paints target on mini-map. +: Bullet damage paints targets.

Perk Slot 2
Hardline: 1 less kill required for killstreak +: 2 assists count as one kill towards killstreak
Assassin: Immune to UAV, Portable Rader, thermal and heartbeat. +: Immune to Counter-UAV and EMP
Overkill: Carry two primary weapons. +: 2nd primary weapon can use two attachments.
Quickdraw: Faster ADS +: Faster recovery from throwing grenades.
Blast Shield: Like Flak Jacket + : Immune to stun and flash grenades.

Dead Silence: Move silently +: No fall damage

Earlier this week a spokesman from EA was heard commenting that, “The ‘Call of Duty’ franchise has 2-3 years left.”  From this list of multiplayer features, I’m inclined to agree.  Sorry to say it Activision, but without Infinity Who? making your software for you and Treyarch churning out Zombie map packs at $20 a pop to bring longevity to a game that wasn’t more than a rent to anyone with some sense of gaming taste, this franchise will be on the shelf joining “Tony Hawk” and “Guitar Hero”(which were also knocked out by the EA titles “Skate” and “Rock Band”). Activision has nothing else left but “World of Warcraft,” and EA has its sights on that juggernaut as well with the current development of “Star Wars: The Old Republic.” End of days Activision, end of days…

    I was thinking about picking up Modern Warfare 1, you know the only good one and then I heard the multiplayer is loaded with glitchers now so I’ll just stick to my Battlefield Bad Company 2.

      MW1 was the last good one. You can get it on XBL for $20 thanks to Activision milking the shit out of the CoD cow or go to any gamestop and buy it used for $5
