So Activision had their free weekend for Black Ops, I decided to check it out and was actually enjoying Domination mode (suggestion of Batman). Black Ops has some of my usual CoD complaints, overly chaotic, perks destroying gameplay balance, etc.

I decided to re-download CoD4 and fire it up and do a comparison. Needless to say I didn't make it far, during installation I was quickly reminded how much of a pain in the ass Punkbuster had been.

Black Ops has full Steam integration, VAC, server browser, etc, etc. No Punkbuster, no crappy Gamespy server browser...

Getting to the point...this was a huge selling point for me picking up Black Ops over the weekend for $40.

Will definitely be something to keep an eye on with BF3 and the Origin services.
