    Copy-Pasta Buildings and more funny shenanigans

    MW3 is just recycling buildings and error messages | Lazygamer .:: Console and PC Gaming News ::. | PC Gaming


    Claims of Modern Warfare 3 just being a pretty map pack or expansion to Black Ops, MW2 and the rest of the COD series are nothing new.

    Whether you believe it to be a worthy stand alone title or simply a glorified expansion pack is up to you in the end but what is factual is that Modern Warfare 3 uses a lot of assets and code from previous versions of the game.

    Take for example this video which clearly shows that a building being used in the Modern Warfare 3 single player (no spoilers) was taken directly from Modern Warfare 2 where it may in fact have actually looked better.



    Of course recycling assets isnít that surprising and makes good development sense. However you would have thought they would have changed it a little at least.

    But buildings arenít the only thing recycled from a previous Call of Duty title with this lovely little error message pointing to some code re-use from a much earlier title.





    Someone at Infinity Ward just got slapped for hardcoding the title into a generic error handler.

    They did reskin it, so it's not entirely a copy/paste. The irony is that almost all your posts here are pure copy/paste

    Well that's interesting and all, but what does copied pasta have to do with it?

    They used the same building, as well as error messages, meaning they were too lazy to make new ones.

    The problem here is that Activision owns the ip and demands annual releases..

    To be honest, if I was designing a game, I wouldn't be bothered to make new error messages. Recycling buildings nothing wrong with that. Unless its a recycled multiplayer building for a multiplayer map.

    What a lonely life you must have, to go looking for negative info on a game you hate just to post it in that games forum. I really feel bad for you And I can't figure out what pasta has to with it either

    I don't know why all of you defend this game their is no excuse for having the same error message as the past game and as for that building i saw it and recognized it when i was playing singleplayer..... one more reason to trade it in after spec ops is done

    Who gives a fuck, we all know it's mostly copy and paste effort, what's the problem with more evidence of that?


    To be honest, I don't mind, since it gives off a weird feeling to be in the same building that you've traversed a lot in COD4, but now looking older and grittier.

    Honestly, there is no point in.....well, pointing these things out, since you can pretty much tell the 1st time you see them.

    Looks rather warm for eastern europe

    I like it when they bring in slightly nostalgic moments by using sections of maps from the older games, pipeline has featured in three different cods (1&2 campaign if I remember correctly, it's definitely in #2 and cod4 online) so it may be there for those reasons. However the setting makes no sense at all

    Everyone's entitled to their opinion, but I for one don't appreciate spending $60 for another rehash of a game that's been rehashed 100 times. I love both Fallout 3 and New Vegas, but I was disappointed to see some of the "same" buildings in both games.

    This shouldn't of been a surprise to anyone. But it is sad that they make enough money off the franchise and won't bother using completely new buildings and error messages.

    I like how you go on to insult someone over posting a thread, that was just about a video game. No insults were flung at you, yet you felt compelled be an ass.

    @Topic: This doesn't surprise me. Though if I saw that building I would assume it's like a throwback or a return to that specific area. Not really sure, since I never played CoD4, but it's just a theory. Besides, this isn't the only game to do something like this. I'm sure Battlefield has too.

    And remember this: We have all seen copy/paste buildings in the real world too, so it's actually a realistic detail from IW

    Look at how much Egyptian and Greek buildings influence the Romans and in turn current buildings....
