    Never again.

    Seriously.

    Elite might have convinced me to never even buy a map pack again.


    And I even bought the MW3 map pack!

    And I've still only played Liberation two times! Worst roll out of a map pack ever.

    Like, if I try playing by myself and do the search for DLC content, the game itself will tell me to stop searching for the DLC maps, since it can't find a game.

    Fucking terrible.

    I hope Treyarch does things the old way just to spite IW. At least they offered stats that were handy and easy to view in the lobby.

    Also rewatching the teaser the only thing that excites me is the Kard.

    Is Elite still horribly broken or did you guys actually get any fraction of your 50 dollars out of it?

    I heard that they eventually implemented Clan challenges and shit. For whatever that's worth.

    The way they did DLC for MW3 is fucking awful and I never play the new maps and it sucks. Some of them are actually pretty good, but since there's no good way to play them I don't. They didn't even add in the standard DLC game mode after they released the DLC pack you can buy.

    Everything about Elite sucks and I feel bad for buying it.

    I got more use out of my Gears of War 3 season pass than the CoD Elite and I barely play GoW3 anymore. It's ridiculous.

    I question my own dumb self about that. I mean, an up front buy for what was essentially the Combat Record in Blops (now online) and the map packs of any CoD game.

    What does the for-pay Combat Record have that the for-free Combat Record doesn't have?

    I sort of like Elite. It's the for-pay part of it that I find to be fucking dumb. (Bordering insulting.)

    Spoiler:

    Nothing I can remember, which tells you how groundbreaking the new features were.

    But I was really just trying to say that I paid for something that was more accessible free. Why the hell can't I look at combat records in game?! It's not hard, it's a fun way to pass the time in a lobby and sometimes it even helps you in the next game. It doesn't matter if the online Elite is ten times better than Combat Record. I'll never look at it.

    Edit: Wait, I remember one good thing: seeing a player's current loadouts.

    There's no for-pay combat record. It's literally just for things like clan ops and the map packs. Also the extra fileshare slots, I guess.

    Yea the stats and stuff is free no one really bought it for the stats or the website so I really wish people would stop acting like that's what people are paying for. I got elite for maps I never play for a game I think I've lost all interest in.

    Yup, and that's why I never bothered getting into it.

    If ever get Blacks Ops II, I'll get it used. Of course, with them putting Ollie North into their marketing... well, I think I own enough Call of Duty at this point.

    Well I already know your gonna get D3 and I still gotta actually play DD with you. So get torchlight 2 as well...if it ever comes out(it probably wont, it's one of those fake games).

    I haven't really looked at the new CoD but if they are putting zombies back in, I hope they change it up a bit. The one thing that turned me off about zombies was having to start from wave 1 because it was slow.

    Vey get something cool.

  • MagellMagell Sphinx! Parts UnknownRegistered User regular
    Everybody should actually get Gotham City Impostors, but in relation to CoD X-Box Ahoy did a video all about recoil so if you're super nerdy and love numbers and why stuff works it's a good watch.

    You had told me you weren't going to be online anymore because you were moving out into the woods in an area with no to limited internet in order to be "self sufficient" and "green." Is that no longer the case? Or were you just bullshitting me, brah?

    Now it makes sense why the thermal seems to make laser beams of LMGs (and also the P90).

    Man, if I'm understanding this (lol)Yahoo Games article correctly:
    "Preorders from day 1 of Black Ops 2 were more than 10 times the amount of preorders for the first Black Ops on its first day of availability," an Amazon representative told GameSpot. "Black Ops 2 even out preordered the first day of availability for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 by more than 30 percent."

    The number of copies of BLOPS2 preorderd on the day it was announced are ten times more than the number of copies of BLOPS1 sold on day 1? And BLOPS2 preorders are 30% higher than the day 1 sales of MW3? THe wording is a little confusing.

    That's pretty crazy if that's what they're saying.

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

    No, skull. The Amazon rep's comparing pre-orders to pre-orders, not pre-orders to sales.

    What they're saying is still pretty good (I suppose), but they're not saying what you described.

    Yeah, posted in the industry thread too, cleared it up for me. Still pretty crazy.

    What the hell else is hiring Oliver North supposed to mean? I mean fuck, the only reason he's not a war criminal is because we were fighting a proxy war, which makes it worse because it wasn't even authorized by Congress!

    Because I missed this, I don't have a clue, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say the vast majority of the people that get it probably don't give a shit. Either that or they'll ask "Who?" and I'm honestly not sure which set of implications are worse. I feel like there's probably a better place for that conversation though.

    The preorder numbers being stupid-high shouldn't really come as a surprise either. It's Call of Duty.

    Pre-order canceled!

    I joined some dropzone by myself last night and it was awful. The first lobby I get thrown into has some guy laughing the whole time while this other guy is yelling at him and both of their mics are going off the entire time and it was frustrating that I kept being put on the bad team with the yelling guy.

    I did top my team with an AA12 in mercenary TDM. The AA12 is pretty bad in this game, but that was the naked version of the gun so maybe it will start getting better with more stuff.

    Also using the L86 this prestige and I think I like that better than the PKP because of the iron sights.

    Just watched a preview of BLOPS 2 on X-Play, and they had the studio head for Treyarch on talking about things (Mark Lamia, I believe). When asked about multiplayer he immediately began talking about the competitive world of e-sports. It sounded like they want something that will appeal to e-sport players, and also to e-sport spectators.

    As nifty as the future setting seems, I don't think I could be less hyped for this one.

  • Skull2185Skull2185 Press ZL to squid Registered User regular
    There's literally no way that Activision will let Treyarch diverge too much from the tried and true formula that has worked since MW1. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Everything I've read and seen so far for BLOPS 2 has me incredibly pumped. I couldn't be any more hyped for this year's installment. So hyped in fact that, depending on what toys are on offer(fingers crossed for some kind of Frank Woods statue), I'm considering my first ever CoD CE purchase.

    There is a vast gulf between how competitive players play, and what spectators want to see. And that is always going to be the problem with competitive shooters. The most efficient way to win makes for crap ass gameplay that isn't fun to watch.

    Especially since competitive CoD gets rid of all the things that make CoD different from every other shooter.

    how many of y'all are going to be left-clicking some motherfucking dragons and wizards and shit with me next week? I'm going to roll a monk and left click until my left mouse button falls off, shit's going to be dope.

    well anyway, back to relevant discussion, I'm trying to decide why it is that competitive Halo is very exciting to watch but competitive Cowadoody is less exciting than watching paint dry?

    I submit that watching competitive videogames is boring as watching dirt grow for every videogame.
