played the beta yesterday. pretty fun. some minor tweaks but its essentially the same game. the perks are identical except 1 new one. the art looks a little different. seemed like there was more color and less dark than mw2.

mayor jingleberries, Sunday, 17 October 2010 18:04 (eight years ago) link

is there a beta out there for download?

just jump into the multiplayer

Jeff LeVine, Monday, 8 November 2010 01:13 (eight years ago) link

Whhhhhyyyyyyyy didn't I order from amazon? Loads of people got theirs today. I'm off for one last go at mw2.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Monday, 8 November 2010 20:26 (eight years ago) link

Im reading reviews to see if anyone felt like pointing out the bad points and its a constant stream of 9/10s. With games on metacritic I feel like only the outlier reviews are the ones you need to read and theres not many for Black Ops just yet..

mayor jingleberries, Tuesday, 9 November 2010 17:00 (eight years ago) link

I saw some stuff bitching about the servers or something. Still on the fence about buying it, can't really afford to at the moment anyway.

fwiw: lol iirc sb'd u tbqh (dan m), Tuesday, 9 November 2010 17:31 (eight years ago) link

Hit level 2 last night bitches. 1.2 k/d ratio. Pwnin y'all.

mayor jingleberries, Wednesday, 10 November 2010 17:24 (eight years ago) link

Got up to 7, which I was pleased with for 3 hours play. K/d ratio not nearly so good though. Not nearly so bad as some though. On nuketown I saw a couple going 10/30 or so, is crazy. Maybe I value my own life too much but would much rather go 5/4 than just keep running into the middle of a shit fight ad infinitum. Grim reaper is fun tho, especially when you nick someone else's after shooting them in the arse.....

problem chimp (Porkpie), Wednesday, 10 November 2010 17:30 (eight years ago) link

debating a buy of this. i love mw2.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Wednesday, 10 November 2010 19:56 (eight years ago) link

I'm just waiting until I hear some good things about it here, pretty much.

fwiw: lol iirc sb'd u tbqh (dan m), Wednesday, 10 November 2010 20:00 (eight years ago) link

Level 21,5 hours.pretty good,few quabbles (spawning can be a bit silly,no xp for wager matches,some of the maps are too big) and it's not adding much to previous iterations but it's decent.

so basically they're ONLY for l33ts

antexit, Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:52 (eight years ago) link

Its nice that kill streaks dont feed more killstreaks so there less of the rich get richer bs antics of mw2. This coming from a dude who sucks at racking up kills. =\

antexit, Thursday, 11 November 2010 04:23 (eight years ago) link

Chopper gunner is a bloody beast of a reward, especially on small maps like firing range. I swear I got killed about 6 times over without so much as moving last night. Also, my reactions are way too slow for running round close quarters, i just get slaughtered.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Thursday, 11 November 2010 07:10 (eight years ago) link

i suck at this too. little disappointed you cant choose much in the way of secondary weapons. i cant shoot a pistol worth a shit.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Thursday, 11 November 2010 14:02 (eight years ago) link

i actually get nervous playing these types of games, like im actually going to get shot and it throws off my accuracy. ALso it could be the fact that im 36 and my reaction times aren't what they used to be.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Thursday, 11 November 2010 15:15 (eight years ago) link

haven't and likely won't ever play this game (mac user) but wtf at the Jeep cross-promotion going on????

BIG MUFFIN (gbx), Thursday, 11 November 2010 15:18 (eight years ago) link

I've been holding my own. I dont feel as griefed as much as I did playing MW2 which is a nice change.

I got the attack dogs yesterday as part of a care package which led to a so far black ops career best 17-7 performance.

mayor jingleberries, Thursday, 11 November 2010 18:35 (eight years ago) link

Those dogs are a right bunch of buggers. Chris, exactly, at 37 I'm definitely feeling that this is a young mans game. Still enjoy it though, have mainly been playing domination where you can get some decent points. Only played one wager match so far, may have to go and have some more of a go in a minute.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Thursday, 11 November 2010 20:41 (eight years ago) link

just saw that jeep ad. what the hell.

goole, Friday, 12 November 2010 01:55 (eight years ago) link

I am terrible at this game. It took me a long time to regularly get my K/D ratio above 1 in MW2, though, so I look forward to not sucking in six weeks or so.

I really wish someone would bring out another Rainbow Six: Vegas-style game with the multiplayer quality of MW2/Black Ops. Camping is boring and running and gunning gets frustrated when you keep getting nailed in the back. I'd like a game that rewards moving deliberately with some basic tactical thinking.

boots get knocked from here to czechoslovakier (milo z), Friday, 12 November 2010 02:59 (eight years ago) link

I was doing well last night and all of a sudden I am getting absolutely destroyed. Been experimenting with some of the intro guns like the 2x shot gun, the mp5 and the lmgs and they are fucking horrible. Guess I should just stick with the girl who brought me.

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 03:40 (eight years ago) link

...and I switch to the enfeld and then go a decent 10-5 and get a bunch of killstreaks.

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 03:50 (eight years ago) link

... and then I go 6-17. awesome.

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 04:00 (eight years ago) link

Ha, sounds familiar. Got hit by the chopper gunner on jungle last night, 5 spawns, 5 immediate deaths. Tried waiting to auto-spawn rather than hitting x, no good, still cut down straight away. Is very frustrating. Is a shame too as jungle is the map I most feel like I've worked out, along with Havana. Had a lovely game of domination on there.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 12 November 2010 05:55 (eight years ago) link

Ive played a ton of matches and feel like half of them have been crisis

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 07:25 (eight years ago) link

Weird, think I've only played crisis twice, same with nuketown (which is cool but no place to up your ratio)

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 12 November 2010 09:31 (eight years ago) link

you all got gamertag names? we should do an old nerd clan.

ILX clan. NERDO.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 16:05 (eight years ago) link

i also hate that damn dragunov...its like firing a piece of wood. Sniping is definately harder in this game and thats my specialty. I have a hard time with the automatic weapons. more bolt action please.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 16:10 (eight years ago) link

I already have iLX as my tag, nerd that I am. Will be on later if I can stay awake. Possibly testing out my newly squire wazoo (come on, you can't call it owt else) rifle

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 12 November 2010 17:56 (eight years ago) link

First time I used the sniper rifle I had a decent run. Got like 8-9 kills. I do feel that the key is to get your kill and then move on and try to get a killstreak that will help you get more than just the handful of kills you can get with the rifle.

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 18:05 (eight years ago) link

im chrisv1918, if you nerds want to be my friend?

yeah i had a great run with the dragonov from a tower in one of the large snowy maps, picking off dudes left and right. then it was all downhill from there.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 18:15 (eight years ago) link

ive never had a high kill ratio in any of the previous games., my average is 8-12. i think once i got 17 and was so proud of myself.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 18:17 (eight years ago) link

16 kill streak :)

rappa ternt sagna (jim in glasgow), Friday, 12 November 2010 18:52 (eight years ago) link

That big tower on the snowy level, I've had that once, and just sat there picking two guys off who just kept climbing up for more.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 12 November 2010 19:21 (eight years ago) link

haha. someone sent me a message that read "look behind you" and then he killed me.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 19:53 (eight years ago) link

well ive made it to level 17. whoopee. i live the FAMAS in this game but it blows through ammo instantly. I'm having incredible success with the M14 though...my gun of choice right now.

F-Unit (Ste), Monday, 15 November 2010 16:18 (eight years ago) link

meh i never get on maps that are good for sniping. seem to be playing in firing range constantly....

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Monday, 15 November 2010 16:26 (eight years ago) link

I get annoyed when dudes who are obsessed with racking up kills keep forcing votes to play on nuketown over and over and over.

strongly recommend. unless you're a bitch (mayor jingleberries), Monday, 15 November 2010 17:24 (eight years ago) link

Holding my own nicely on discovery and Berlin (sniping on the latter is a joy, a rare thing in codblops), but stadium, ugh. I suck so bad on that map, I just can't getmy head around it. Weirdest thing though, have played 5 hours since first strike came out, not had Kowloon once.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Thursday, 3 February 2011 22:42 (eight years ago) link

Kowloon and Berlin are the best new maps imo. Discovery and Stadium are nightmares in domination, which I pretty much play all the time.

I guess discovery can be good if the teams are even-ish. If its lopsided youre gonna get shepherded behind one checkpoint and summarily raped.

strongly recommend. unless you're a bitch (mayor jingleberries), Friday, 4 February 2011 17:33 (eight years ago) link

Flag a on discovery and the surrounding area definitely becomes a killing field, yeah. I pretty much only play domination too.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 4 February 2011 17:58 (eight years ago) link

I figure this is as good a place to ask as any: Does anyone play the older CoDs (1, 2, 3) any more? I really liked 2 and 3.

gtfopocalypse (dan m), Friday, 4 February 2011 18:01 (eight years ago) link

berlin is my fav new map. usually i just sit behind the box on the opening spawn facing down the alley way and unload some ass kicking with the psg1.

that gun is a beast with no attachments, my new favorite.

Thanks a million but no joy here.Xbox says invalid.Is it for ps3? I should have asked beforehand.Thanks again anyway.

Black Arkestra, Saturday, 7 May 2011 13:01 (eight years ago) link

am enjoying the escalation maps I've played, Stockpile has a lovely flow to it, Convoy is good but has a couple of nasty chokepoints. Hotel? Hmmm not so much, too similar to highrise in previous also v similar to the one with the ice hockey stadium from last lot.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Saturday, 7 May 2011 16:38 (eight years ago) link

Aw, sorry about that. It is for Xbox, yes. Not sure why it would be invalid. Damn.

have we talked about oliver north being somehow involved with this game? also apparently the villain is some sort of demagogue trying to incite a revolution against the rich/powerful? skeeves me out, codblops 1 was clancy fascist enough. remember cod4 and the half-assed "anti-war" quotes that would pop up when you died? that was some subversive shit in comparison
