GamingThreadWhy Switch still didn't got a Call of Duty game?
ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Continuous modwhining over a series of posts/threads
Nah its really oppressive.I think even for rules that could be considered, "port begging," it needs to be seriously revised. You know its oppressive when you have no where to discuss this issue. Certainly not with mods. When I asked them how I could contest when my last thread got closed and i got modded, they just said, "go to contact us," which is just a link in the bottom of the page that leads to an page that you put a subject and a message box. They didn't give me a specific forum to go to. You are forced to acknowledge that you broke a rule and at fault, even when you don't think you have in a harmless situation like this, or worst of all, it doesn't make any sense. I swear this site is a joke.You ave the most liberal people here with the most open ended topics and its touted for social justice.. but the moment you have a different opinion, you get lambasted and threatened, and you can't even defend yourself or contest a moderation after someone calls out that they taddled you.
And at any given moment, half the threads on this forum are about people asking each other what their favorite games are. I'm not opposed to those topics, but I don't see how they are anymore valuable than these kinds of threads. This is sparking discourse and productive conversation, and it could inspire people to talk about it more and even do something about it. I mean shit man.. Operation Rainfall would have never happened if it wasn't for passionate people that didn't care. Games like Xenoblade would have never hit it in the states and we wouldn't have gotten X or XCX.I think its odd that we get overwatch, spyro, two crash games, assassins creed games all in one year, but Switch doesn't get the most popular franchise that will likely earn more profit for activision than most other games with its online multiplayer and DLC. Especially on a system that is already more than 3x the wii u install base in less than 3 years, and on its way to meeting 100 million in lifetime sales like the wii, and it has the portability factor as an appeal. So the only logical thing I can personally think of that is size of the game, which I think is Switch's biggest bottleneck easily(cart sie and cost) when it comes to not receiving ports... not raw power. which developers have confirmed as well. But that could be taken care of by testing the waters with enhanced versions of last generation ports (AC did it) and cod mobile, until carts get cheaper...
GamingThreadThe lack of Call of Duty on Switch is seriously disturbing
ReasonUser Warned: Making a port-begging thread.
So I've made threads about this before in the past, but as time passes by and we get more Activision games, it just makes less and less sense. For reference, the last cod game on a Nintendo console was Cod Ghosts on the Wii U way back in 2013. They likely stopped because they didn't make a profit and sold less than half a million, unlike the cod games on Wii which sold about a million copies on average, and actually ended up as one of the top selling AAA party franchises on Wii. Yes, on a console that was more than 10x weaker than the competition. Treyarch back then were some wizards porting on the Switch.
But now, there is really no excuse. Just this year alone we've gotten Crash Remastered Trilogy, Crash Team Racing, Spyro Remastered Trilogy, Overwatch, and Assassin's Creed Rebel Collection to name a few. All well known franchises. But something is missing...
Not to mention switch now has TRIPLE the lifetime sales of the Wii U in less than 3 years, and is on its way to selling 85-100+ million in it's lifetime!
There really is no excuse. The Switch is selling as fast as PS4 and the market for online first person shooters is barren and much neededto be filled. Compared to platformers, racers and semi open world adventure games, competition for realistic first person shooters is scarce and needed, especially in 60fps.
So even cod 4 remastered at 720p-900p with some toned down details or Cod Online Mobile should be feasible if Activision doesn't want to handle 30fps ports. Activision, make your move already. You're sitting on a gold mine of potentially a million copies sold on Switch!

ReasonUser Warned: Port Begging
Looks amazing. Bring this on the switch please!!!
Maybe Nintendo needs a switch pro for higher CPU (and GPU)to maintain 60fps can the latest iPhones and Androids.
Cod4 remastered on switch shouldn't be an issue too tbqh.
