CoD: Black Ops to Feature Dedicated Servers

Computer and Video Games reports Treyarch has stated Call of Duty: Black Ops will feature dedicated servers for multiplayer play, confirming a report that surfaced before the recent announcement of the seventh installment in the military shooter series. Dedicated server support was absent from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, in spite of petitions and other protests from unhappy PC gamers, and while Infinity Ward was insistent that this was a necessity, Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia doesn't agree. "I think dedicated servers are excellent. I don't see any reason not to see them unless... well, I just don't see any reason not to," Lamia recently told PC Format magazine. "It seems people like them and we're excited about what we're doing right now." He explains they are working to offer the best of both worlds. "We do work very hard to reconcile the desire to manipulate and modify those dedicated servers with offering them the persistent experience and benefits that the console system provides," he said. "We're working very hard to marry those two things, so people can run dedicated servers and also participate in the communal experience the console players get to have, given they're all on first-party servers." Issue 221 of PC Zone featuring an eight-page Call of Duty: Black Ops preview is now in the hands of subscribers, and will hit UK newsstands soon.

It would also be nice if I could PICK THE FRIGGIN SERVER I WANNA PLAY ON!! Instead of automatically putting me where it wants to. Give me back my list of servers so that I CAN CHOOSE where I want to go, and not IWNET.
Oh, and get rid of flying debris. Damn that's distracting.
