Default Re: Anyone Excited for BlackOps?

My game has been dispatched!

Should arrive on Monday, cannot wait!

I'm wondering, seeing as our release date is Tuesday, will the online servers not be switched on until that day? I've only ever had 1 other game that arrived the day before it's official release date, and online worked then. I don't know how strict Treyarch will be about that.

Yeah, I'm having a day of MW2 today. Had some great times playing that game, and was the first CoD game I ever purchased, and now I'm really into FPS games thanks to it.

For all it's flaws and exploits, damn it's addictive. Some kid I know on my friends list somehow managed to rack up 29 days worth of play time. That is beyond no-lifing. I'm barely at 4 and a half days, and it felt like I played the game all the time. But this is for Xbox, and before I got one, I put in a few hours on the PC version too.

It's a sad goodbye to MW2, but time to move onto the next thing! I'm hoping mine will be arriving around this time tomorrow.

I've played around 7.5 days... It would've been more, but Infinity ward took 6 months to put in a search filter.. Us Aussies spent a lot of time playing with 2 bars...

At least I got my money's worth..

My first two choices for PC FPS were Bad Company 2 and Medal Of Honor, but EA online apparently has a historically abysmal online support.

I bought Bad Company 2 this week and I'm unable to connect to their online network for multi-player games. I can't even return it, either. Thousands upon thousands of people are having this same problem, and they've had this problem for several months with no official word from EA. I'm officially boycotting EA products for the rest of my life.

So, even though I despise the MW franchise, this game might be my only choice.

thats too bad, don't know why you're only thinking of bad company 2 and medal of honor. pc fps don't work the same as the consoles, the games aren't meant to be played for 3-8 months like a call of duty and then ditched. you should get team fortress 2 the best there is. and try out arma 2, its super realistic and you might not like it but the community is great. if you're just going to get black ops then building the rig and shit seems useless, that game is pure console.

Tried BC2 on PS3 and hated it. FPS aren't for consoles, IMO. At least not for me.

And no, I didn't build a new rig for COD. That's laughable.
