View Full Version : Modern warfare 2 Comic book !

Modern Warfare 2’s adding a new weapon to its arsenal of modern media blitz tactics, Infinity Ward announced today. Joining games like Dante’s Inferno and Star Wars: The Old Republic, Modern Warfare 2’s getting its own comic book miniseries, starring a ghastly ghoul named Ghost.
Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling gave MTV Multiplayer (http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2009/08/17/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-2-comic-book-series-coming-from-wildstorm/) a brief description of the series.
“The ‘Modern Warfare 2: GHOST’ comic is a 6-part series delving into the, more legend than history, backstory of Ghost. The series takes place before his inclusion in Taskforce 141 and as such before the events of Modern Warfare 2; focusing more on the origins of his character, the mask, and his ‘Ghost’ moniker,” he said.
Wildstorm, a branch of DC Comics, is set to publish the bullet-riddled rag.
We can’t wait to crawl under our covers and read it with our official Modern Warfare 2 night vision goggles (http://www.vg247.com/2009/07/14/modern-warfare-2-prestige-edition-comes-with-fucking-night-vision-goggles/). Being the biggest geek in history has never been so manly.

Lol. That sounds good but I think they're going overboard. A comic book series for a realistic shooter? Uh uh. Doesn't seem to fit with MW2. But hey they can do what they want.

Yay! Let's sell out months before the release of our actual game!

Bloody hell Infinity Ward, just piss off now please...

First, we get to hear about the game in every single corner of the world we are in.
Then we get to buy a stupid, overpriced pair of fake goggles that look like they fell out of the bottom of a Happy Meal.
Then, they think of making a controller for it.
Then we hear about the game some more.
Then a comic book, for no reason other than to make more money that they don't even need. God, the game is going to sell more than baby clothes...
Then we hear more about the game, repeat until game is released, and then prepare for 10's of thousands of game invites to it.

Sure, the game is going to be good, but just remember, it's a bloody shooting game, it's not the second coming of Jesus (Though Jesus was never here, but that's a story for another day), it's not going to be the greatest moment in the history of the world and it's not even going to be the greatest moment in the history of the 360.

It's just a shooting game, that looks near identical to CoD4, I'm still going to get it though.

Now, I await Call of Duty: The Movie Of The Game That Is So Good It Needed A Movie Just To Show How Great It Is. This Movie Will Have A Sequal Called Call Of Duty: We're Back Again For The Hundreth Time (< That's a flippin' long title...)

I agree, they're trying to milk it from every where possible.

They really are pulling out all the stops for this one... Utterly ridiculous, although, truth be told, If I saw it in my local library I would probably pick it up.

I am actually excited for this, might give a little insight to the story of the game.

I'll probably wait and get the TPB.

Does look good though from what I've seen.
