Ahhh that great day where you open all your presents and enjoy them, sadly some or most of these presents might be Treyarch’s Call Of Duty Black Ops
Not a brainbuster at all, 6 year old Bobby will start playing his new game with all of the other little kids on the block. Easy XP and COD Points, but annoying voices and teammates.
dont you find it funny how the media talks about videogames making children violent, yet parents still go out and buy the games without having a clue as to what they are about
But it's the video game makers fault because parents can't say 'No, your too young to play GTA IV' despite the fact that video game publishers DON'T advertise to Children and do more than any other industry to prevent children getting hold of violent content.
Of all the games I play, COD is the least to make me violent. I get frustrated at it's lag and that makes me mad, but I don't think about shooting people or anything. Peggle on the otehr hand makes me angry cause of it's difficulty. A simple puzzle arcade game makes me cuss like a jackoff almost everytime. My wife would ratehr me play Read Dead around my daughter than Peggle. Not that I would play that around her, but the point is the same.
I find it funny how people even make news or opinions pieces or blogs or something I cant get it right, only to say, in order words, that they suck at playing online games and look foward xmas time for some noobs to hop on the game in order for them to get easy kills. Might as well say they need someone worse than them at the game in order to enjoy it. I like my online matches to be challenging. I love getting my kills against higher level players. Makes me feel I can step up my game to their levels. Just like last year´s MW2 flood of youtube videos of guys getting nukes around this time, I bet we will see someone kniffing people till 11 killstreak without dieing. But by the time you check the score board and the guy who won is 7th prestige and the other 7 were in the mid 10s and 20s no prestige levels, you kinda feel cheated for watching. Its like an old saying about a lion sent to kill a pair of ants.
@1.1 and THEY want to complain i mean common at every GS and Eb games they warn the parents X game is given the X rating because of X amount of things are you sure you want to buy this for son/daughter. then a week later same parent is giving his opinion on why games should idk whats the current trail on games? fact is its the parents responsibility the devs and retailers already did their end common sense folks.
I don't think you'd be matched up with the noobs too often as I've noticed that since i'm prestige 2 (just) I usually get matched with other prestiged players or high 40's. The only time I've been matched with anyone lower is because they were in a party with someone of a higher level.
I play on the ps3 and only use my mic when playing with my real friends. I don't want to talk to 12 year old dumbasses who use voice changer to make stupid noises. Thats why I just mute everyone automatically. So, yeah. Most people on the ps3 have mics. But they just don't use them a lot.
Last year I logged on mw2 on ps3 Christmas morning, every room looked like this. http://i49.tinypic.com/smpw...
LOL. Wish that would happen to me. ;)
Just play it on the PS3, none of them will have mics!
this is not true edit: disagrees? denial. i allways play with my whole clan, 6 vs 6, all with mics. Also play with people of Brazil, Puerto Rico, Cubans, Argentina... lot of people with mic. Maybe N.Americans are more shy tahn South Americans
I don't know very many kids who have mics on the PS3. As opposed to the 360 where every xbox comes with one so of course the younger kids will have one.
but you say NONE.. and thats is not true.
I've spent a LOT of time with this game on the PS3 and most people do NOT have mics. I'm surprised Sony aren't bundling a cheap mic with the system yet. I myself have still not found a reason to spend 50 bucks on a mic for my PS3. You can either get free online gaming and pay for the mic. Or free mic and pay for the online gaming. Choose your poison.
CoD players are noobsgalore dont see the problem with a few more noobs being added to that mix
I never realized how selfish and greedy the COD community was, so what if there are new members joining? Everyone was a "newb" at one point or another.
not to mention all the "newbs" are 5 yr olds trying to be tough and smack talk everyone and they do a terrible job at it which makes it funny
Actually I have to agree to that. I've never gotten mad at anyone on any game, because I've always remembered when I started and was scared that people would yell at me for making some sort of mistake. It's really nice for a fellow gamer to help them out cause as you stated, we were all newbs at one point. They got that game to have some fun not for people to yell at them or make fun of them and call them names. Sadly, gamers can be quite mean.
I don't think that this piece reflects the average player's opinion. Actually, I would be surprised if even more than the smallest % of the players even though about this.
this is the conversation ive been going thru at work for any M rated game me: CODMW2 is rated M for mature are you sure your 5 yr old son can play this them: yeah he see it in school all the time and he will be unpopular with all the kids. me: ok but you do know this has terrorism in it where you kill hundreds of innocent people for no reason with out any attempt to stop the terrorist them: oh i didn't know that....we'll let me get him grand theft auto me: THAT'S WORSE! if you really wanna get him an M rated game get him Castlevania its awesome @Keltik82 that's how my mom was too and tho as a kid i would have been made at her i appreciate it now....and yeah parents don't care mostly cause a lot don't understand they just wanna shut there kids up and not have to watch them
If I told my mom I would be unpopular at school if I didn't get a certain game she would say "I don't get a shit, you're to young to play that game" I'm 28 now so I understand where she came from. Some parents just don't care what their kids play.
It's already happening. Last night on Live was nothing but campers. I even saw my first boosters. The game will quickly go downhill now. :(
thats all there was since day one......and the 6hr hacks were funny to find out too....broken $60 game that well tryarch is actually trying to fix by making even more broken patches XD oh activison how you make me LAWL every time they speak
... Meh, beginners in CoD just means easy pickings. Unless if you're playing an objective-based game-mode, but the new yahoos usually head to TDM or FFA. The game isn't that hard to pick up anyways. It's a bit more annoying in game that require teamwork. It happens a lot in KillingFloor; every-time there's a sale, there's a flood of new players. Some are descent, but some don't have the common sense to know that if something is twice their size and is glowing red, the running at them with a 9mm pistol isn't the smartest idea in the world. BC2 is similar with the $7 sale steam has been having recently. I'm running into Recons trying to bunnyhop and quickscope me simulatenously... and getting their faces stabbed in the process. Oh well, it's always fun to watch someone fly the heli for the first time. :D As far as the typical parent is concerned, games are for kids. It's unlikely anything disturbing or mature could be in them. It's just mario, except with a military skin. Bullets instead of fireballs.
I love watching the helis, one of my favorite things in the game is watching people struggle flying it. Did it myself the first time despite being careful after watching everyone crash immediately, I ended up halfway across the world before my timer went off.
Christmas Day = Play everything else rather than Cod.
I don't see what the problem is, Cannon Fodder as far as I am concerned !
Every Day=Newbs On COD
Hopefully I will catch a few of these 'seasoned veterans' unaware's as they see a n00b on the 360 but I've already been playing it since release on the PC and PS3
noobs = easy kills. let the slaughter begin. lol
Its gonna happen to ALL GAMES. GT5 online is gonna have a bunch of kids not knowing which button is for brakes and hitting you out of the race all the time with their fewawwi. COD is gonna be full of kids going 1 and 19 and making your team lose even though you were working your a$$ off and these guys were busy looking at the sky. Me...I'll be with family, as you SHOULD BE. Geez, who plays games on christmas? Come out of the basement dude, get a life.
What is this "family" thing that you speak of?? Also, come out of the basement? NEVER!!
sorry but that was ignorant man, just saying. If you were a 10 year old that just got the biggest game of the year, you wouldn't pop it in after going OMGs!!! YOU ARE THE BEST PARENTS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! if everyone getting this game on xmas was 20 plus, your comment would make more sense. Most people playing the first time on xmas day are under 15
