Robert Bowling, the community manager for Infinity Ward (known best as fourzerotwo) has it on good authority through the "grapevine" that we could be seeing the abomination of this forced rerouting of communication once and for all.
Crapstation 3 no pary chay in game so cheap hehehehheeheheh Killflop 2 no friends invite !!! Really PSN So Cheap
That Naughty Dog dev liieeed to us. D:
well you certainly talk like the dumbed down to 360 game that you are. No wonder they cancelled the PC version after dumbing it down to 360 levels no PC gamer would want it. If it wasn't for the crappy 360 Alan Wake would have been an open world game and might have actually been good.
Says the guy that hasn't played the game.
Party chat should have never been taken out in the first place. Taking away party chat actually will make me play the game less. Some times I like to play my games and talk to who I want. Not some annoying people that are on my team. STOP taking things that make gamers happy, I think the reason given is a joke. People are going to cheat with or without party chat.
Agreed. I thought this was one of the most useless, and maddening, changes they've made.
I haven't been playing it that much and that is one of the reasons. I agree that I don't want to hear little kids calling my friends the N word or whatever else they come up with. Having the option to be in a party chat is really nice. I hope they bring it back. It really doesn't make a whole lot of sense that some gametypes have party chat and some do not. WTF is the point of that? In any match on CODMW2, you level up anyway, so what gives? Why the need to disable party chat for only certain gametypes like team deathmatch?
Thank god. What me and my friends did was actually mute everyone that we didn't know in the game. I'm glad party chat is coming back, should of not been taken out to begin with. Good job of IW to listen to the community.
While I understand what Infinity Ward was trying to accomplish, it was poorly implemented. Trying to encourage team work by forcing you to participate in game chat is a terribly idea. My friends and I play domination, demolition and capture the flag and would prefer to simply remain in party chat.
"being a (predominately) black site." ...the fck?
The site is predominantly black (meaning there are a large number of blacks behind the site's operations) and the author is black.
Yeah turbo. I am fully aware of that. It just didn't need to be placed in an article despite it being referenced to the racism on xbox-live. Blacks? Mo fo I am brown. What is n4g.com a white website? Yellow? Who gives damn.
I guess he just needed a way to prove his point?
He was saying he (a black guy) and his staff members (mostly black people) were glad becuase black people are the center of attacks for most of the racist slurs and idiots for Xbox LIVE and with Party chat, you don't have to hear that sad mess
Yeah I know what you mean. I have many black friends on XBOX Live and to hear them get called all kinds of names makes me sick. Skin color does not matter to me. As long as you are cool, I have no problem with your skin color. You could be purple for all I care. As long as you are chill and want to get down to business on the games, who the fvck cares what color you are? Nobody gets to choose what color they are when they are born.
howz kan weez beez cheetin wis out noes chatz outsidez ars teemz membaz.
I actually had to used my privacy settings so that I only could hear people in my friend's list and not some idiot kid going crazy about his throwing knife (happened in the very first Team Deathmatch I played!). That was quite helpful though annoying to do.
Of all the years I have been playing xbox-live I never thought of that. Good idea thanks. I grant thee a +1 bubble.
I didn't even realize the option was in there until MW2 came out, lol. It's so nice not to have to hear the idots anymore. People say some of the craziest things when they are in their anonymous internet bubble.
should lead to some better online experiences
I've had MW2 for 2 weeks now and still haven't touched multiplayer yet. IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME?!?! or maybe i'm just waiting for this possible change to happen, who knows.
There is something wrong with you. :-) It's great fun, and the new design on the maps is great. Plus, throwing knives... one of the best additions to gameplay ever. Throwing knives with Scavenger makes you one hell of a Carney.
No the campaign is awesome.
I thought it was good that they did that so that they can discourage cheating. People would definitely not cheat if they were restricted chat. In all honesty, if your going to play something like S&D then it's not fair that u can give away enemy positions and such. But apparently, many people don't mind it and I suppose if EVERYBODY is doing it, it makes for a legit tactic in some weird sense.
I would rather have the other team "cheat" than listen to racial slurs from prepubescent teens.
I think this is overall a good move. People who use party chat to cheat could/would just use skype, ventrillo, or whatever to acheive the same result. The people punished are those that want to have voice chat with their friends and not hear music blaring, people screaming insults, and the rest of the crap that voicechat brings.
Yeah, it was a nice experiment, but the time has come to end it and go back to biz-as-uze.
I cant count how many times I got into with someone because we are trying to speak over each other. I wanna beable to bullsh*t with my friends without having to deal with someone else thats just being a total butt hole. I actually stopped playing COD6 for that reason.
What about the ps3 version - oh that`s right.
Yeah. We should totally throw away $50 for such a feature.
who said IW never listen to their fans? they listened, they update, and the fans happy now
They listen to crap like this but not the important stuff like dedicated servers. All the console playing games press is inconvienced by this, the server issues less so.
what is party chat, huh?
The ammount of horrible chatter is disgusting, theres nothing these foul mouth kids wont say especially racism, which I never understand as you cant tell nationality in 99.9% of cases unless you're told by the person, its just none sensicle rantings. Yay party chat!
ok, now i have to say this... I played cod4 for 2 years pritty much. I have played a bit of MW2 and ranked up to 70 but stopped there. I am 100% glad that they are giving us back the chat function, it was dumb taking it out in the first place. but all this talk about the kids that talk smack, If i have to be honest with myself about it, the so called adults are just as bad. Am I the only one who thinks it's not just the kids ? when we say kids, what age group are we really talking about ? I am 30 by the way. There was a time when I thought ( please forgive me for saying this now ), but I thought it was just US players, but when MW2 launched, before all the US people got it there was a good amount of time when the only teams I came across was just UK players... and they were just as bad! I think there is just something about being on the live and playing a really competitive game that just brings out the worst ( or maybe brings out the little kid in the adults )in a lot of people. in some ways i don't mind it as much from the teens and kids because they are just that, teens and kids.. but hearing it from some of the "adults" really makes me wonder sometimes. anyway, I am glad they are bringing it back. next thing they need to do is give and option to only play people from your region. I hate the bullet lag and even worse I hate the fact that some people assume you either can't play the game, or you need a better connection. at least matching with uk or Europe players I can put up with it.
