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.

They've announced that the game will have DX11 features but given how dire the graphics looked in the trailer I have ZERO confidence in this game. Low resolution textures, low poly models, the same over-the-top scenarios, the same terrible character animations / lip-sync, etc.

I'm forcing myself to play through the singleplayer campaigns for MW1 and MW2 after picking them up on sale a while back. I completed MW1 yesterday and it was alright, though less than 4hrs long. MW2 is just terrible though. Grenade spam is ridiculous, melee spam is equally bad, the levels are mind-numbingly linear and the endlessly respawning enemies are tedious (yes I know, you're meant to run through all the levels). I'm playing through on the easiest difficult setting and still finding the twitch gameplay to be tedious - there are so many times where you're expected to die the first attempt only to learn how to do it properly the second.

COD games really are beyond dire. I just don't get any enjoyment out of them. I certainly won't bother with any of the newer ones. I just find it depressing that COD is so successful when the games are so terrible.
