The Call of Duty series is famous for all the issues and hate from gamers, however we always play it, and every time a new one comes out we go crazy for it...
Wow...listed sniping twice? I do agree...the hit markers are way off >.>
That's Krazy... ... with a K! I find sniping kind of enjoyable. It makes me feel like a sleek assassin everytime I pull of a kill. Although I do tend to rely on the ACOG more than the scope. =/ Though snipers could use a small buff.
out of everything he said my only complains are mw2's secondary options ,shotguns are not suppose to be primary options ,IW had it right in MW2 .i don't care for sniping ,killstreaks are fine but i do miss my nuke. and rc-xd's are not over powered 70% of the time i destroy that crap before it kills me ,you need to be more aware . And what's that crap about missing host advantage ,that's just stupid .
I strongly disagree with #5, my Colt Python takes it to people.
I see a lot of people (via killcam) running with pistols and doing quite well. I tend to run the launcher personally as I prefer to take planes out of the sky but the pistols seem fine to me.
agreed! I always like to play with the weakest weapons in CoD, so I've been playing with the dragunov lately, which I find to be seriously bad. When I play sniper about half my kills come from my secondary (python), so I really have no complain there!
The Python is pretty nasty, I personally enjoy the ballistic knife. EDIT: I also love the strela, nothing as satisfying as taking away someone's care package counter-spy plane as soon as its up, or a huey.
Same here. I love the secondaries. They are SUPPOSED to be underpowered, they are last resort weapons, although the way I use them, they aren't really underpowered. I don't know what this guy is doing wrong, but I can own with the CZ75, or the M1911 (the chrome looking pistol) and using the crossbow is just so much fun, even though I miss most of the time. The balistic knife is pretty cool too. There is nothing wrong with secondary weapons in Black Ops.
lol, I miss the days when i could hit 360's with ease
Not hard to do 360's considering there was the massive aim-assist on the consoles. Don't even kid yourself.
Record yourself doing one real quick and show us then.
Why record myself doing something that ANYONE can do with ease? It's like all you kids who make boring-ass montages with Metallica or Drowning Pool in the background.
I haven't touched the Cod Blops multiplayer yet. I really like to finish all single player stuff first.
same, but you should really try it out, or hurry up and finnish the single player :D
My advice to you is to stay away from MP as much as possible because it's rage-inducing.
IF you "rage" in a video game that means you should stop playing. video games is about having fun, once that stops why continue playing? For your Kill death ratio that know one gives 2 shits about? If having a high KDR is your goal in life than you got issues
@SJPFTW agreed...take away the stat tracking (or atleast the k/d and w/l) and ppl will start to play for the fun of it again and it will be all about the shits and giggles, not raging
i agree also i miss that in my games playing online for fun, my most played ps2 game was Star Wars battlefront 2 i had a tun of fun i didnt care how much times i died i never really cared if i did well or not i just wanted to play had some good times i spents ALOT of time on it use to have my name as Your-Face so when ppl killed me it said for example: MrAnonymous killed your-face,but this gen for me people have gotten so competitive and serious that online has its lost some of its fun.ahh the good old days,only online game i find that fun is bfbc2 and even tho i don't play it a lot Uncharted 2 :) ,but yeah when i rage i just turn off the game no point in geting mad while playing game because like SJFTW said " video games are about having fun, once that stops why continue playing?"
Elpresador anyone? :D I find theater mode to be quite effective in making me try goofy stuff. Unfortunately, most games today are played for leader-boards, trophies and achievements. =/
Gotta' love Black Ops Multi-player.. It's always tight & action-packed. As soon as you get into a match.. non-stop killing action all over the place. :D
"Call of Duty is Famous for always being a great sniping game" what?...o.o CS, BF2, BF:BC2 and even KZ2 have bigger notoriety for sniping. COD4's sniping was ok, but never "famous". if its famous its because its an easy quick scope "Well, it sucks so much it deserves another mentioned" "...another mentioned" =| he basically says 3 things...since the killstreaks he makes a point that he loves them...wow, what a strange article...
I think CoD4 also is notorious for noscopes. Though you're right about the other games; CS and its AWP have generally defined sniping (and probably why most snipers demand one-hit-kill rifles)
he seriously didnt mention the shitty servers? today 3 games in a row i got in got "connection interrupted" this is seriously a broken game they need to fix
I think thats what he meant by the host thing?
What do you meen "he"? Didn't you write the article?
no he talked about how it sucks to be the host, not how the games drop for no reason
"however we always play it , and every time a new one comes out we go crazy for it" No we dont . I hate silly comments like that , especially from people who wanna pretend to be pro columnists or journalists . Looking at current home consoles alone with at least 150 million machines , each year Cod is only a 15-20 million blip on the radar , and for the same fanbase . It get worse with easily as many gaming pc , and far less sales of cod . Sure it's the biggest blip compared to others , but still a drop in the ocean . There are still far more people that dont care and purchase the game no matter what . It tends to show that taste are very diverse ,and always have been ... despite the omnipresence of a few titles in the medias
"We," in this case, is hyperbole. I really don't think the author meant all 100% of people who play video games buy Call of Duty every year. No need to write an essay or pull the "bad journalist" card, here.
pretty sure the "we" hes talking about are the cod fans that always play it and always buy the new one the next year...not gamers as a whole, but the fans of the series
The maps suck. I may take this game back.
[email protected] small....
What about maps like WMD, Grid, Jungle, Cracked,
Secondary pistols suck? Someone hasn't used dual Pythons yet.
Yeah but still, the pistols are SECONDARY weapons, they should be drastically weaker then the primary. I am happy with them, they are balanced well.
How about being knifed from 10 feet away? That is crap!
Agreed, I thought they took the commando perk out the game, but it seems now that everyone has it by default.
Yeah, and I swear everyone else gets it apart from me, my knives never hit ;(
I wouldn't go that far, yes there is a lunge motion, but not NEARLY as bad as commando.
I do not agree with the secondary weapon comments. The secondary weapons are just fine in Black Ops. It is not hard to use a pistol, and in fact i feel more confident using a pistol as opposed to some primary weapons. Pistol have the fastest ADS, and can be really deadly when used correctly. the CZ75 is the best choice imo because it offers a huge magazine. Do NOT use the full-auto attach, for it lowers accuracy. I can shoot the thing faster than the full-auto attach anyway. It is not impossible to get a K/D like 40-5 using a pistol because of the fact it can ADS faster than anything else, and that you can pull the trigger at ridiculous speeds. I think what people have the most problem with is aiming. When is comes to a pistol, people just can't seem to hit their targets which i do not understand. Lol, i went a whole prestige using only the USP45! Took forever, and did my K/D go down LOL!
Uselessness of being host? Have you played One in the Chamber? Obviously not because the host ALWAYS wins on One in the Chamber.
Some things I want is hit detection better, snipers that are not crap, and gunz that can kill like they have stopping power.
This article seems to be written by/for the kids who love to quickscope and someone/people who rage-quit(s)... Knifing is just plain awful in this game too. I've knifed people countless times when the knife has clearly not hit them, and it's happened to me too.
