Waiting for the "hotfix" that adjusts loot tables to actually drop rewarding gear that allows people progress without playing Blizzards new Auction House game. I'd rather pay the iron price for my gear, not the gold (or USD).

Indeed, I'm all about shaming MP cheaters. Hell if it were up to me people who bought gear in Diablo would have it tagged pink for the PvP Arena
This is a fantastic idea.

Oh look, negativity based on hardly anything. What a shocker.

I hope this is confirmed for PC. I love the idea of a darker bounty hunter game. Star Wars can be awesome when it's done right.
I'm with you SV. I welcome the prospect of a new SW game and the chance that it could be good. I'm not jumping for joy, but I'm also not bitter for the sake of being skeptical.

I just watched it on the official website: http://callofduty.com/blackops2/videos/reveal

Anyway, the graphics look absolutely appalling. They've used the same shitty engine for five years and it wasn't even great when it first came out. I only play COD games for the singleplayer and then only when they're cheap, which seems to be NEVER. The Steam store lists Blacks Ops at £40/$65, while even Amazon at £25/$41 isn't good value.

Every other publisher discounts games to generate sales but Activision knows it can charge whatever it likes for the COD series and people will queue up to hand their money over. Whatever novelty value it once had has been destroyed by Activision's desire to bleed people's wallets with shitty rehashed games. That's especially annoying when the competing franchise is owned by EA, a company that does exactly the same thing.

I really wish that Valve would step in and put them all to shame.

And I hate Microsoft and Sony for keeping such shit consoles on the market for so long. They can't even handle 720p, let alone with any graphical fidelity and they still want to charge stupid prices for games. I hope Valve does come out and compete with them on hardware. Perhaps that's why nVidia has been working on its cloud-sourced service to automatically select the optimal graphics settings for games? Plug and play PC gaming?

Someone needs a reality check and a new pair of glasses because I saw nothing in that video that said shitty graphics.
The textures were not that great. Bland, muddy, the opposite of crisp/realistic. The graphics are serviceable, but it is not exceptional or innovative in any way. The engine has been showing it's age for years now and they continue to use it. They keep making money off of it and it has to require minimal development time, so I can't blame them. Doesn't mean I like it or will buy it though.

I was expecting this to have more of a futuristic setting but, unsurprisingly, it looks like the same old rehash.

Uhmm didn't homefront already do this? WTF do people think everything COD does is so revolutionary when they dont innovate in the slightest
We haven't really had a good futuristic shooter since BF2142. So just because someone attempted to do something, doesn't mean they succeeded. We'll have to see what they do with codblops2, but they generally make a solid game. The fact they're straying from the tired modern day shooter setting/gameplay and they make solid working games is probably what has people interested. No one claimed it was revolutionary, but they have a chance of making a good futuristic shooter.

Seems I jumped the gun on judging this too soon. Looks like there will be a futuristic setting, which piques my interest. Why they're introducing such a drastic setting change it in an offshoot sequel is beyond me, but I'm still interested to see what this will be about. Here are some screenshots.

I still laugh every time I hear someone say "CODBLOPS", it just sounds ludicrous. I only played this at a friends place but it seemed like the same old stuff. I guess if the formula works then run it into the ground.
Where's the friggin ground then, cause I'm sick of this complete lack of innovation.

I was going to pick this up, but ever since they released that childish cinematic last week, I fear I would be picking up a game for 5yearolds--I'm not a 5yearold.

You sound like a rational person with reasonable opinions.

Protip: Being worried about you own personal, private hobbies appearing childish shows that you still have some growing up to do.
Zing!
Not really. Deqer wasn't concerned about his appearance, he simply didn't want a game that (to him) looked to be designed for 5 year olds. So the protip "advice" was off the mark and really just came across douchey.

Shame too, they used to put out decent games.
Well, this is a decent game. An exceptional one actually. It's sad that many are passing on it as a result of the DRM, not that I fault them for passing on it. I bought it and enjoyed the hell out of it, I'm just not a strong willed gamer's rights activist like the rest of you. I also support nuclear power and think police officers should be respected.

Police and Nuclear power we need in our lives, DRM, we do not need!!

I agree. I just can't help buying a good game. I'm weak, I just don't have the conviction of the others here. Booze, woman and DRM - these are my vices.
You're not weak. You get to enjoy yourself playing a game you like while they boycott.

Seems like a bad business move to put all your eggs into the Free-To-Play basket.

But honestly, after Brink I'm surprised the studio was able to stay open.
Yep. Still pissed at myself for preordering that.

That was outstanding. Never knew about this game until now. Far from a wasted effort.

I don't mind a hype trailer like this being all CGI. There will be plenty of time for gameplay footage. In fact there's a YT video with some up already. Someone posted it on reddit.

Okay I'll say it. It looks awful. But I'm sure a lot of people said that about Minecraft initially and that turned out pretty good. Only thing I can't really get past is it looks worse than Minecraft and is clearly using Minecraft tech judging from the wooden blocks, crosshair, etc.

Still, they're prototypes and we don't know how it plays. So I'll reserve full judgement. Just not sure these screenshots were really worth releasing.

Exactly. These clueless assholes have no idea. So it doesn't sell well and their default excuse is piracy. Yeah, let's not consider that it not selling well is YOUR fault. We'll automatically blame the consumers and then punish them for it. Consider all of this, then they self-proclaim it's the best PC port ever. This is filled with so much clueless, out of touch, fail I don't even know what to think.

Prez, just wanted to point how how enjoyable it has been reading your posts in this thread. It's the epitome of open-mindedness and understanding that seems to be missing in many facets of our society. Be it gaming, politics or whatever else. Good show.

Verno wrote on Apr 5, 2012, 09:24:
And I really loved this quote too:

I believe EA is a destructive force in the industry as their goal isnít the make gaming more accessible and respected as a medium. How can you argue that video games are art, when pieces of the story are cleaved out to be sold separately? This is why the titans of the gaming industry like EA are passionately hated, while movie studios and TV networks donít draw nearly as much ire. 3D price gouging seems downright generous when compared to the tricks companies like EA are using to wring more money out of consumers.
This was a great quote.
