On PC Black Ops II

PC Gamer grills Mark Lamia about Call of Duty: Black Ops II, asking the studio head at Treyarch about the just-revealed first-person shooter sequel, focusing on questions about the PC edition. This doesn't yield a lot of concrete answers, as he effectively dodges the question about dedicated servers, saying "we havenít yet announced exactly what that setup is going to be." He does speak of how this uncertainty related to cheat prevention, and how their aggressive development cycle does not include time for beta testing, but also defers questions about LAN support, though he does speak of eSports support, which would obviously benefit from things like LAN support and dedicated servers.

The first Black Ops was okay, but I had to wait for a few patches before it actually ran on my machine and the sound worked. Probably not going to get this one until it's on a free weekend like MW3 was, and then just play the single player.

I was sad to see more robots and stuff in this, as COD has slowly been moving away from actually using skill to shoot someone to just putting down things or activating things that kill people for you.

Yeah, but it takes skill to get those things. In MW3 you need 5 linked kills to get a predator missile. If you can't link then 14 unlinked can get you a stealth bomber, if you choose.
But the most skilled players go for specialist, which slowly unlocks all the perks/proficiencies for you, so at 8 linked kills you're basically a killing machine. You don't get that 1 kill boost of a missile, 2-4 of a helicopter or even more of some of the higher perks, but if you know what you're doing all of those perks combined will make you far more deadly. If not for specialist I likely would have gotten bored in the game very quickly.
