Infinity Ward: Support Your Games

Dualshockers writes:It was a blissful day saturated with autumn's bellowing frigid touch in the desolate niche of where I reside. Children's laughter permeated the morning sky and junkies shuffled their feet resembling movements of a George A. Romero zombie flick. Everything seemed normal except, that on this day, one of the greatest games was released - Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

I couldn’t agree with you more. Although I hated it, i did agree with some patches that were sent out early on such as the airstrike damage balancing. Before it, the airstrikes (and helicopters) we’re a bit too devastating. I’m glad that IW supported the game in that way, but there is no excuse for the networking issues still plaguing the game today. I know that it has sparked many fanboy wars such as “that doesn’t happen on Live” and that’s just ignorant bullshit, as I play both SKU’s and both suffer from similar issues. I really hope IW can learn from their mistakes as MW2 is only weeks away.Great Editorial! +1

i agree COD4 was a great game and they did many thing right ..but support was without a doubt the THING that was awefull ...
Sorry but other fps ( resistance 1 , killzone 2 , even halo 3 ) got patches to add, fix and tweak ... and that didn't prevent their developpers to make another game ... hell they got better by doing that .. and their game sold well since the fans were happy ..

Lack of rumble ,
Lack of trophy support
Lack of online optimisation
FAIL ( ps3 version )..

You know what? I have been a COD fan since COD 2 the big red one for PS2 and since then I have played COD3, 4, and WAW. And they have ALL had their issues with connecting on the servers. I remember COD3 was the over all worst of the bunch. 4 was terrible at times to party up with friends and join their games. I don't expect MW2 to be much different in that department.

The greatest games aren't even from this decade, if you ask me.
But I suppose COD4 was one of the greatest games of all time if you're 10.

As much as I love COD4, I have to agree here. Infinity Ward isn't very keen on keeping thorough support on their games. I mean, honestly, with all these issues, we can seriously count on two hands how many patches have been released since the game came out.

I like their games, but their support sucks pretty bad.

See ya in hell....unless you plan to buy the next installment, that is"

Robert Bowling better listen to everyone and support this title!

With the bad rap they're getting from the PC community regarding the dedicated servers, this will probably cause up some stir amongst the console community - at least those who give a crap.

in a way i'm glad they started that petition for the PC version, to show you can't push around your consumers into their BS!
