This style of raid sounds more appropriate for a truckload of GTA-V.

So they did 6,000 gamers a favor?

Wow... they could have used that time and effort to seal something worth it. You know, like money, gold, or robot sex bots that are built for... sex.

Agreed.

When I got CoD Black Ops I pretty much said if this is bad I think CoD has run its course. Needless to say, that game ended my CoD run.

But! For the people out there who don't want to fork over the $60 for BF3 they can check out Tribes: Ascend or Fire Fall which are F2P. Only problem is they are not out yet, but they look pretty decent.

OK, if you want to call THAT software piracy... go for it. It's not on a boat, but at least there's REAL theft and violence involved.

--

CoD/MW/BF are all child's play. You want a real battle? Check out PlanetSide 2.

The battlefields are several square kilometers and will handle over thousand players in a persistent space. No piddling skirmishes that reset at the end of the round. The battle will be 24/7.

The Teaser Trailer:

http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/10/26/planetside-2-battles-set-on-eight-b y -eight-kilometre-continents/

If you want a taste of what PS2 will be you can try out PlanetSide (1). Your best chance at being in the beta for PS2 is to be in PS1. Create a VS character and look for guys with the Ghosts of the Revolution tag and tell them Nihil sent you.

Am I the only one who loves these games for the single player campaigns, but loathes the multiplayer? I guess multiplayer in general just isn't my thing. It gets very boring and repetitive after a short time, but the stories, characters, and graphics in the first two were amazing.

I know alot of people rag on it, but I found the story for Modern Warfare 2 interesting.
I'll be playing 3 mainly to see how, if, it concludes.

I like the single player and have grudgingly liked the MP for Black ops, you just have to choose your servers carefully the ones without the 10 year old racist assholes

Eh. I'll just wait till everything trends back around to WW2 games.

Hasn't been a WW2 game in a while, and im hoping someone throws another one out there in a year or two. should be a nice bump in graphics/maps/AI/etc since the last round of Allies vs Nazis

You are not alone. Additionally, I hate the time it takes to round up a decent group. I have less time for video games than I would like, and I really hate having to spend 30 minutes to round up a group for a 30 minute mission.
 
2011-11-07 10:29:04 PM
I wonder if they track the distribution closely enough to know which serial numbers those had and disable them. They do this for things like smartphones, for video games I'm guessing not.

Say they sell the games online on Ebay or something for $40 each, cheaper then you can buy new.

That's $250,000 dollars.

Are you a PC gamer?

I mean, the price of admission is steep, but usually, 10 year olds are kept out.

And if it's on PC... damn. They've invaded.

That is some bullshiat. The way they just let people run past claymores with stacked explosion reducing-evasion increasing perks was a jab at us claymore users. The people who run around past claymores quick knifing are as frustrating to lose to as armor lockers in Reach.

If you are out to buy MW3 and you don't come back with Fallout, (insert any and all Valve games here), or Minecraft as well, you're shorting yourself on your trip to the store.

You may be right. I remember playing some team on team deathmatch briefly on Part 2 and the fact that every other word was either "ni**er" or "fag" certainly pushed it from being "so-so" to "not worth my time."

My feeling is that you shouldn't have to.
Its been a rare day since WW1 that someone actually managed to stab their way out of a situation, and I don't recall anyone suggesting "running fast" as a method for defeating landmines. Its designers whimsy that either found their way into a game that's supposed to reflect modern war.
I realize they wanted a quickly paced shooting match, but I figure all the guns and explosions should have served that purpose without anyone paying an homage to previous games by porting forward the annoying bits.

/and don't get me started on the kill-cam or circular mapping.
/The second anyone actually tries to use a machine gun or sniper rifle properly, they get shanked from behind.

Red Orchestra 2. Has some bugs, but, overall, wow. Not a shooter-shooter. Takes some patience and persistence, because you'll get dropped a lot by people you never see. But that's because you're learning how to drop them at 200 meters without ever being seen.
