    it isn't black ops

    fail, pre-order cancelled

    I find it hilarious how his main point of contention (it seems) is there is a lack of variety in the objectives

    "An online shooter needs variety, depth, and addictiveness to succeed over the long term."

    when the objective in COD is literally "shoot guys"

    Gametrailer's review is pretty positive. 8/10

    seems like the whole parkour aspect isn't as useful as they had marketed though

    I searched orikae on steam and nothing came up

    edit: Wren, it is useful

    People are just playing as they're used to, playing it as a shooter without those options. I expected this. It will take a couple of days for people to get used to the new mechanics.

    how is The Game ?

    Has anyone figured out how to play the game so that you are both

    A. Playing the levels in order and seeing the cutscenes, and

    B. Playing online with other human beings instead of co-op against bots?

    When I go to campaign mode, the only option it gives me is to host a game and invite people onto my team. I can't figure out how to do the campaign online against people.

    i thought the whole idea was to have people jump in and play the opposition?

    This is what I'm referring to:
    Each mode can be played entirely online 8v8, meaning that your campaign will be played against real people who are playing their version of the campaign against you. If you are at a point in your campaign, (online) and you lose the battle, you will be reconnected to a new server with players at the same part as you and you can try again, while the winners remain to fight the next battle. I guess you can think of it as, “Losers walk.”

    I don't want to host a game on my PC. So how do I join one of these 8v8 campaign games from the first level?

    It's fun. I can get how some people think the maps feel closed, but all of those areas that you think are closing you in

    parkour your lazy ass up there

    If I go Campaign, choose a map, and hit Start mission, it joins me into a game with other real people doing similar.

    The answer to all problems is the big fucking revolver. When in doubt, shoot everything with the big fucking revolver. Muzzle brake, red dot sight, rapid fire, speed holster. Fastest and angriest draw in the west.

    This game got a lot better once I realized that it wasn't actually running optimally on maximum settings.

    But fuck me, that is weird.

    game joining works fine if someone starts a game, then the others sort the servers by "friends" and join that way.

    Works for both Free Play and Campaign modes.

    The reviews lie, this game is awesome. I was trying to prevent the enemy team from escorting a dude and was playing as a light engineer with a light rifle (a sniper but not as strong. More like Reach's DMR) and a machine pistol. I was in a place with an MG Nest with the hostage walking in front of it, and just held them all back between the MG, my turret, and my rifle. Once all the enemies were down, I'd place a mine in front of the hostage's path, so whenever they came along and revived him he'd blow up.

    I was basically Rambo. This is not a bad thing.

    Also using a cowboy hat-wearing cop and a gas mask dude with a bandana.

    To be fair, it is quite entertaining to snipe a heavy in the nuts and watch him fall down in pain and look around for a medic.
