    Blops is fun but it seems slow with stalker zipping me around corners.

    BlOps does seem slower but I like the fact that I can kill things pretty consistently with just about any gun, where as in MW3 if I don't have a specific gun I'm playing it wrong.

    I keep picturing in my mind that you live in some creepy foggy clearing in a scary forest, in some rickety looking wooden shack. But then you go inside and its like... TARDIS huge, and there's home made candies cooking and it smells good. And it looks like it was decorated by Martha Stewart or something.

    It's like the N-word and the C-word had a baby, and it was raised by all the bad words for Jews.

    Right now I've got $16,800 in gun and optic sitting on my kitchen island, so right now the house looks like it was decorated by Martha Stewart and Frank Castle.

    Fun times later today when I get to go play the how many shots does it take before a cop shows up game at the firing range. They love it when do a mag dump with a fiddy.

    I think I'm just going to start recording whenever I play anything. That way, the next time someone gets butt-hurt because he keeps losing, goes on a tirade, and tells me he's sponsored by Machinima and that he's got an 11 KD on his other account, I can post it online and laugh about it for the rest of my life.

    Ah. I've used it a little bit, but for whatever reason, I feel most comfortable with the L86 (probably because it was the first LMG I used in the game). I also never play MW3 anymore, so my mind might change next time I play (if ever).

    EDIT: Also, apparently the first teaser for blops 2 is supposed to hit at the beginning of May. It's probably because I hate MW3 so much, but I'm actually excited for it, even though I didn't enjoy blops.

    Dear police department,

    When you send out three cars to respond to a noise complaint and they take a half hour to finish the call it's because I had toys at the range. You stop sending cars out and I'll stop wasting taxpayer money by letting them play with my toys.

    Kthxbye

    I tried playing some CoD by myself and it did not go well. I played maybe three games and my throat is sore from yelling. I did unplug my mic before yelling so as not to afflict the randoms with my hatred of them. Whatever point I'm not defending we're losing, how nice. They even picked the camping spots to defend the points and still couldn't do it.

    Yeah, it's not like the old Dom where a well-positioned player could loosely patrol both points. If there's one thing that killed my solo enjoyment of the game it's the way they ruined pubby Dom.

    Fucking nice, lol.

    My wife got me a some Turtle Beach X41s last night as a surprise, because my old headset's been giving me hell for a few months. Super excited about it. I seriously needed a new headset, and these are a step up from the X11s I was using before.

    Sad part is thats one of my lowest multikills that I've gotten, 5 people barely registers as a multikill to me after MW2 javelins.

    As much as I love and prefer Black Ops, I have to admit: there's really nothing more satisfying than picking up a huge Javelin multi-kill at the beginning of a match, and then pouring streaks down on kids who haven't even taken an objective yet.

    I know we all liked to complain about Black Ops, but I think it's held up really well. Last night was a lot of fun and I'm rather excited cautiously optimistic about Blops 2. If they improve upon the good start they had I think it could be a really good game. I think it is interesting that we usually get 8 or 9 guys together whenever we're playing one of the older games but hardly ever have more then 3 or 4 for MW3.

  • iTunesIsEviliTunesIsEvil Registered User regular
    Black Ops is a lot of fun now. It's easier than I remember. I do look forward to seeing what Treyarch will do with Blops 2 as well. If they can just pick up the game's pace a little bit and do something to improve kill-streaks it'll be pretty decent.

    Ten seconds later after I tossed my carepackage and got a double pred I collected the osprey gunner care package.

    It was a good fucking game.

    I've seen those figures before, Jack. I don't necessarily believe it marks the beginning of the end for Call of Duty. Modern Warfare 3, in my opinion, is just a shitty game. A lot of people don't like it. A lot of people do, sure, it doesn't do anything at all for me. And that's okay: World At War sucked, and Call of Duty didn't die; Modern Warfare 2 sucked (in my opinion), and Call of Duty didn't die; Black Ops sucked (not in my opinion, but the Modern Warfare crowd thinks so) and Call of Duty didn't die; Modern Warfare 3 sucks (again, in my opinion) and I still don't think Call of Duty's going to die.

    What the series needs, however, is a refresher. It needs something new. Modern Warfare 3 made some nice improvements (tying streaks to your classes, for example, having streaks roll over and start again after completion, etc), but the overall product feels really "same old, same old", you know? Call of Duty isn't dead, it just needs to be shaken up a bit.

    Treyarch proved with Black Ops that they have the balls to stand up and do something they know the community's going to have a fit over (removal of stopping power, quick-scoping, etc), and I'm just hoping they have the nerve to do it again this November.

    If this next game's shit, though (and it could be!), that's when I'd say it's the beginning of the end for Call of Duty.

    How would you suggest they pick up the game's pace? (I'm not saying it isn't slower than the Modern Warfare series - I know a lot of people say that, and I'm not entirely disagreeing) One of the things I like the most about Black Ops is that it feels really stripped down, and back-to-basics: I don't like streaks that stack, I think that if you want an 11 kill streak, you should have to get 11 kills; I like that you're essentially limited to pistols as your secondary weapon, because game balance goes out the window when everyone's running around with dual FMGs as secondaries (secondaries should never be as powerful and effective as a primary, in my opinion); etc.

    I'm just curious to know what you'd suggest for improving the pacing of the next game.

    I know that Ghost is being reviewed. Treyarch knows that it was a problem. They've admitted that, in the absence of Stopping Power, it's too powerful, and they've committed themselves to fixing it. They've also seen the controversy caused by Assassin in MW3, so I doubt they're going to make the same mistake twice. Killstreaks could be more interesting though, I agree.

    The problem with those figures is the decline in sales of the Wii, PC, and handheld versions of the game. From Gamasutra:

    http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Analyst-Modern-Warfare-3-Sales-Down-Because-Wii-PC-Gamers-41515.html
    "However, large declines in sales of the versions of the game for Nintendo Wii, handheld platforms and PC have driven the overall decline, he suggests."

    Since most consider the PS3 and 360 the primary homes for the CoD series, it's easy to see that MW3 is doing just fine. The truth of the series decline will only become apparent after sales figures of BLOPS2 come out.

    I don't think they need to tweak Ghost at all, I just think it needs better competition in it's class slot. If they bring over the hardline perk from MW3 and bring over blast shield but with the Blops reduction figures I think that would do it, because honestly you're giving up a lot to stay off the radar at that point. I would be fine if they split up ghost like they did in MW3, just don't make ghosts immune to counter UAVs & Black Birds and you're done.

    I think you're right, honestly. But I also think they're going to nerf Ghost from orbit anyway; it's the only way to be sure.

    Wait, did I wake up in an episode of "Sliders" where people actually LIKE a Treyarch game? That's like the episode where they find an "almost-earth" where little things are different, like the Golden Gate bridge is blue instead of red.

    I thought we were supposed to hate Treyarch?

    My entire universe is upside down. Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnrgh..

    They play a less shitty game and call it fun.

    BLOPS2 is going to be another rehash on the same engine as the past decade with no balance, stupid glitches and retarded perks that facilitate frustrating gameplay.
