I bet he's dead.  We had two flashback missions MW, granted the same locale.  Also, could be playing flashbacks from different people, since I've seen at least two player characters mentioned already.

Also, random though:  Maybe the ISS scene is from the perspective of an unimportant bystander, ala the intro sequence to MW.  Would negate a lot of the immersion killer if Roach weren't actually in space for that.

You only need one kidney mate. You could get a fair whack for it.

Random question.


Are you going to (or did you) kill the civilians in the airport level? Apparently it was a big deal. It was on the radio and everything.

Personally, I didn't shoot any civvies in the airport level.
Spoiler:
I shot in the general direction of the Kazakhstani SWAT and shot at their feet to get them to piss off.

Modern console games go that quickly?

...Thank God I've never had one of those silly things...

Whatever happend to games like "Zelda: A Link to the Past" on the SNES? Not only was it fun, it took a good, long, healthy time to bring it to a close.

What he meant was: "I just finished the main story line."

What he hasn't finished:
Special Ops mode (twenty three one-shot missions with special objectives.  Award for beating all of them on Veteran 3-star rating) (and co-op too)
Multiplayer gameplay
Multiplayer challenges (holy **** are there a lot of these).  They also net you weapon upgrades and perks for multi games.
which goes into: Prestige mode.  Max out your rank?  Oh well!  Click on the prestige button to get a cool new rank insignia and start over at one again!  (TEN TIMES!).  Max rank is 75 I think for this game.  Oh, Prestige Mode resets all multi challenges as well (not achievments, just challenges).  I think this time you get something more than a pretty new rank symbol though.

Now let's look at Zelda.

Single player.  That's it.  A dedicated player could finish the two probably in the same amount of time.
And CoD isn't a puzzle game, even in the slightest, so you could chuck a few hours of Zelda out the window if we're just looking at story and gameplay.  And a few more for having to restart that damn three headed turtle boss three dozen times anyway.  And a dozen more for finding all the heart pieces.

If anything, modern console games have even more replayability and longevity compared to back in the day games, thanks to the advent of online multiplayer.

You see Zelda's multimedia assets? Good. Now, you see Modern Warfare's media assets? Good. Notice how the latter are, like, much more involved? That means their production consumes more resources.

Less length for your buck, but more--literal--bang.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

I'm gonna throw a giant 'OH THE HELL THEY DO!" in there.  Your almighty console games sacrifice almost all of they're storytelling for multiplayer.

Oh yeah, they'll have a decent story, but it'll only be 3 hours from beginning to finish.  It's basically a multiplayer game with a token singleplayer component.  A TOKEN!  We will NEVER see a game the scale of Baldur's Gate or the aforementioned Zelda.  Game companies don't do epic any more, it takes too much time.  They're all "well, we've got this great concept.  But concept games don't sell as well as multiplayer gibfests.  So, we'll sacrifice the quality of the storytelling that backs the multiplayer up so we can make more cash."  Never mind that the concept games are the ones that people remember and talk about and reminice about years later.

It's skippable, and the player has no reason or even character incentive to fire on the crowds (s/he's supposed to be a deep-cover CIA operative.)

That's pretty stupid.

Okay, so let's pretend you're a deep cover agent. You go along on a 'murder tons of civilians' mission. You don't fire. Would you expect your pals to notice this failing?

Major spoiler here that answers the question:

Spoiler:
Yeah, they kill you at the end either way - they already know you're an agent.

Don't know anything about it as the coverage has been pretty bad.  I just assume it has the standard 6 hour main story and 3-4 hours of side quests.

Coverage been bad? It's had reviews on every major site! And good reviews too.

Anyway, 40+ hour main quest, god knows how many side quests, decisions that alter the whole game, and a completely different opening 5 hours depending on which origin you pick.
