"It is unfortunate that those [bugs] have to exist at all," Olin told the gaming publication. "In an ideal world, we would love to ship a completely bug-proof game. I can't think of a single developer in the world, though, that could achieve that."
well mag is 256 players and i never saw a lag since i got it
Attention Treyarch.. Your Game sucks. Bug Free or not.
It's true. He's swimming in our pile of money, and all he can do is blame it on the bugs?? How about he get off his ass and fix the issues at hand?
I hate COD but, zombie mode is awesome for gamers who want to test their skills. I made it to level 36 on my own. What a rush and time waster.
Apparently "We fucked up" is difficult to say for some people.
I disagree Treyarch. Flower has no bugs lol and if it does we don't know about it. point is, yes, games have em but I'm starting to think that these are just included in the game because, well, treyarch/whoever is aware that gamers love exploiting them. If they owned up to that then I could see this point of bug-filled games.
Treyarch can suck it. yeah games have bugs, but not every bug in the book all at once, to be honest, BlOps was and still is a disaster.
This article reminded me to check if the trade in value on amazon for the hardened edition of Black Ops for PS3 went up. It did and I agreed to trade it in for $42. Thank god, now I can afford Killzone 3 on day 1. Goodbye broke ops. You won't be missed.
If you had a beta on all 3 systems you would have at-least halved the problems you greedy b*stards
@Static-X The reason they do not beta test is because they release the same game every year. If they were to beta test it people would realize that its no different then the previous iterations. It would probably kill the massive hype surrounding the title and affect the launch too. Activision knows what they are doing, and they know the sheep will flock regardless... pretty sad, really.
Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner folks!!!
then youre lying, tony.
He's just exaggerating with never. I've play MAG for a while and more often than not, it was an extremely smooth in terms of connection.
@ ultimate exaggerating ? lool are u with me home playing i played since the release i have 3 charcters and never had any lag maybe ur connections sucks idk
Mag rarely has lag. I leveled all three factions to 50. For all those disagreers, you don't know what you are talking about. Mag's biggest pro is the lack of lag next to gameplay.
Yea, Treyarch is correct. There are no "bug-free" games, but there are "bug-riddled" games, and the Call of duty series falls into the latter category. It's not so much about the "Bugs" because at it's CORE the game does not run properly! The Servers are garbage, and the game is very choppy and laggy most of the time... Bullet detection is horrible, and so is melee detection. I have witnessed my knife sink into a mans chest on numerous occasions and it does not register a kill.
Mag played very well, but I notice lag every once in a while, nothing game breaking though. I hope more games in the future works as well as Mag.
I wish one of these interviewers would have the balls to tell them off.
Treyarch needs to shut the f*ck up, since they obviously can't man the f*ck up. And in terms of shooters Treyarch, Killzone 2 and Halo Reach had no bugs in them at launch, you crooked f*ckers.
WORD. I completely agree.
why not invest a little more money and time to make you game bug free? Atc, is a evil corp low investment, huge marketing and fast production and hope for huge sales. they have make so much money that they could have making the best games but they dont care. and sheeps still keep buying their dlc i mean games with no improvement in their technology.
That's bull and I dare you to find proof! Have we already forgotten about the huge sums of money Activision wanted to put into Modern Warfare 2 development but Infinity Ward refused and made with a smaller budget?
elven- i'd like to see your proof. i never heard of that but it sounds interesting.
how old are you kid? do the maths only mw2 sold over 20m copys 60 x 20m = a lot of money, enough to make the best engine ever using the best tech and polish the s$%^& out of it. but all you get is a new campaign, new maps and few minimal changes using the same outdated tech.
Corepred4: http://www.develop-online.n... Keep in mind though, it's rumored that despite this the budget was still between $40-50 million. http://www.thatvideogameblo... That being said, it's not about the money, it's how you use it. AKA: That still doesn't explain how Activision is at fault at all when they wanted to put a bigger budget into the game. Nor does your math explain anything at all.
wich dave will say "i dont want money to make the best posible game ever" i dont think none will. Corp. rules are spend the less possible and make the biggest profit possible. dant talk to me if you dont understand this. you dont even need to do the maths and its ok to like COD games but you could have a better product if you send them the right message " not buying the game until they actually use new and more advanced tech on it" And i dont like that COD have make a casual game so popular that other games like KILLZONE and SOCOM are changing into a more casual setting and features wich is why i will never buy one again not even when they start using those millions on making a high tech game i will avoid it, (playstation ask them gg, z etc, to make their game more casual to apeaol to the n00bs from COD N00bs that hate a game becuase it does not have AUTO AIM ASIST and more n00b friednly features like xp points poping out the screen) plus IW are gone ad they were the gold team that actually knows how to make a quality game.
... bu bu but, teh RC cars :/
Lol, why, I've never seen such damage control from a company before. "Well, uh, other games do it too!!!!" Lmao.
It reminds me of Apple and their iPhone4. They tried so hard to spin on the death touch by saying other phone suffer the same issue which they did not. Death touch =/= death grip. In this case, buggy game =/= broken game. It's pretty sad when companies/devs just blame other instead of their own mistakes and flaws. This is why I respect dev like Kojima and Kaz. They are willing to put themselves on the fire and strive to make it perfect to their vision.
Except other phones do have the issue. My HTC HD7 suffers from the death grip as well. I'm not defending Apple (as I hate them myself as I don't like the elitist image they are selling), but it is true. Doesn't make it better though.... With that said, hardware issues are significantly easier to find than software. As Treyarch said, one hour of online game play is more than the entire team at Treyarch could put in quality assurance for a lifetime. Because you don't see bugs in other games, probably means: a) the game didn't do change much from the previous game and is just using pretty much the same code b) the game isn't popular enough to have enough people play it to get the problems exposed c) some times it is the underlying architecture of the platform or the ability of the platform holder to uphold enforce a good spirited gaming community d) developer dropped the ball which I rank pretty low on the list. With that said, I never really encounter any of this cheating nonsense going on online. The only time I ever saw that was when I played Halo 3 ages ago as somebody had a lag switch.
How about something called a "beta" ? This may be the first they have heard of one.
I agree with you, but I stopped trusting treyarch the moment they released the xbox 360 beta for WaW. Everyone found the glitch on roundhouse, reported it and it got patched. Put my copy of WaW in my ps3 on launch day and what do ya know, it was the only version that hadn't been fixed. Says it all really.
Yeah, but not all games are bug ridden crap like black ops.
Yes there are. Stop making excuses.
Bungie has done a pretty fantastic job of releasing bug free games and they patch the bugs pretty quickly.....what he should say is "If Activision let us have more than a year and a half to make a game, we would have the time to polish it to the level where there would be no bugs" but he can't since he likes his job.
I have to agree with them. But some games have less bugs than others *cough* blops *cough*
No game is bug free, BUT call of duty more bugs than any other game i have ever play. I've never been disconnected from a game so many times in my life, and seen so many glitches.
atleast those few games that have issues get them fixed, cant even do that much can you treyarch. WELL HUH? Blizzard makes all of Activision look bad...which makes blizzard look bad *facepalm*
Really? Hows come Warhawk, Dead Space 2, MAG, Uncharted, Killzone 2 I never saw any game breaking glitches?
Title should say treyarch: there is no activision game that's bug free. Everyone knows Activision games are rushed to market without been fully tested for BUGS "BUGS EVERY WERE RUN"
Clearly, Treyarch are Zerg players. All they do is Zerg Rush.
there may not be a unbugged game....but at least over devs take the time to get rid of the major ones unlike you (the previous) infinity ward, and obsidian.....oh yeah and also other devs actually try to patch the bugs that do pop up after release and don't break the game more....they also ban cheaters too instead of letting them break a broken game and ruin the experience for all
Pac-man is bug free, its a videogame.
No, but there are bug riddled games.
I am seriously pissed now, after the lag on my black ops on ps3 they say this shit, how about telling that to Nintendo never seen any bug on any of their game 1st party games even Sony 1st party games I have seen no bugs yet....making excuses now
Ok fine, I can accept that most games are not bug free. They are require a lot of complicated developing and in the end, you're bound to find something that doesn't work properly the more complicated you get. However, most games I have played have not had the extent of the bugs Black Ops has had. Developers tend to test their games out seriously and correct the better part of MOST of the bugs, but Black Ops was a joke. One play through on the PlayStation 3 version would of told you something was wrong with the game. Treyarch was too complacent. There is no excuse. Yes some games have bugs, but Black Ops reeked of unprovided attention and care. Basically what i'm saying is, they didn't put enough effort in or Activision set a deadline that was too ambitious.
blah blah blah call of duty sucks blah blah blah
well said sir well said
All i heard was blag blah blah give us more of you're money for our broken pos games.
I played this game on both PC and PS3 and it's crap on both. MW2 actually played smoothly for me on both systems. While I'm able to play Black Ops it does stutter and drop frames for me on both systems. Can't wait for BF3
I swear there was a similar article approved hours ago...
Yea there was as i was the 1st one to comment lol. http://n4g.com/news/696541/...
I was gonna call the orkin man after 3 days of black ops.
such disrespect for the gaming community from this lols
Maybe not, but they're sure as hell a lot more polished than your games.
WOW Treyarch stooping to new lows. Yes no games are bug free. But theres a difference between bugs being in games, because they were not identified at the time of development and release, compared to, being lazy and knowing full well about all these bugs during development, but releasing the game anyway. Please don't use the "All games have bugs" excuse for your laziness. There really should be a law in place, for deliberately releasing a bug ridden game.
yeah, but it's just that your games have way more bugs than the others
Treyarch: herp derp
Yeah but your games have glaringly obvious bugs that SHOULDN'T be there.
Stop with the excuses Treyarch and start doing betas.
I've had no problems yet playing on Xbox Live. Sounds like a PSN thing to me.
we know treyarch, we know. but one thing is a bug free game and one thing is a BUGFULL game like yours.
Sorry Treyarch, but your games have more than free bugs (LoL). Infact I have lost count on how many bugs your games have... Ps I still haven't forgiven you for not allowing me to drive that tank through those bushes you lazy bats-turds..
There certainly arent any bug free games, but fortunately most of them do work. I wish everyone on Bobby Koticks teets would shut up already. People have suffered their shit firsthand for long enough, and simple comments aren't going to quell any concerns or fix any glitches.
Treyarch: We must do something to protect our phony baloney jobs immediately! Immediately! Harumph harumph harumph!
Funny how the 360 version (you know, the one one that had a huge advertising push for Black Ops) dosent suffer from any of this.
