... nvidia system tools (I didn't know those existed until yesterday) where you can set up your own rules for fan speed performance etc and the temp of my card has lowered quite a bit during heavy load and it's almost silent during no load

Where do you get these tools?

It has the appearance of bloatware because of the popup ads that can't be disabled.

I actually like the fact that they don't allow map filters. If they do, eventually everyone ends up playing 1-2 maps because the majority of players refuse to play maps where they don't know like the back of their hand. I hate to see the community end up playing de_dust 99% of the time. There are times when the developer knows whats best for the game than the consumer.

This is why I prefer MW2's matchmaking system over this dedicated server crap. BC2 so far had been a headache for me. I spend more time trying to find servers and join up with my friends rather than actually playing the game. Give me intelligent matchmaking over archaic dedicated servers any day.

MW2 is a great game. BC2 doesn't even come close. Too bad ppl just like to band together and hate these days.

Trying to play over the weekend was horrible. Half the time was waiting on the server browser and the other half was getting kicked from games or just unable to connect. DICE fail.

And people bitch that loosing EXP when you die (and in tern can delevel if you loose to much) in FFXI is to harsh.

Yeah it was harsh. I used to play as a healer, and I'd get requests from people all over the zone for rez's. Some people would sit at their corpse for an hour or more waiting for a white mage to pass by.

That said, I prefer those kind of strict death penalties. It encourages team work and community.

Oh and about the level potency. In FFXI, when you're level 60, you could just BARELY solo a level 30 mob.

*sigh* The only difference between the release of Everquest and the release of STO is the capacity of patience has dropped to almost zero...
Exactly right. Players these days are much more demanding and much less forgiving.

Good stuff all around. The fixes for the texture hacks, particularly. More and more, it was becoming obvious when people had those running on a map.
Agree, but I love the carepackage fix the most. Can't stand speed knifers using that exploit.

FFXI was way too grindy, it had a lot of pretty positive elements going but the sheer amount of palette swaps and rehashed Everquest-style grinds were a huge drag. You couldn't just play FFXI for for a few hours, you had to sit down and play for 5+. I hear they eventually shaped it up a bit but too little too late for me.
Hey Verno, I totally agree with you. It was definitely heavy on the grinding. But I guess I prefer it that way over the newer MMO's which see way too easy to attain level/loot and solo everything. Things have more value when you have to work to get it. I recall in FF, I was level 60 and I still couldn't solo a level 30 goblin.

But its true, each session was 5+ hours or its just a waste of time. On top of that, I think 2 of those 5 hours were spent looking for a white mage or red mage, hehe.

Been playing MW2 since launch, and really the reports of hackers are way out of proportion. Its not any worse than any game released since the days of quake. I look forward to BFBC2, mainly because my buddies are BF fans, but I always preferred the CoD series over BF. Something about the movement or combat or weapons that makes the BF series feel clumsy to me. I dunno. Anyway, people just hate MW2 because they need something to hate... No dedicated servers is not an issue, IWnet has been working great for me.

I've only checked the beta out for a very brief time, an hour or two, but it didn't feel "Trek"-like and didn't hook me at all. So I guess its another skip for me. I'm waiting for FFXIV. Say what you will, but I think FFXI was one of the best MMOs ever made, imho.

I don't hate EA, but they did make a bunch of dumb decisions; closing good studios, missed the wii opportunity, killed off some good franchises, etc. Not surprised.

I just created a new petition that demands the features that I want in the game! How dare they release a game without the features that I want?

Been having alot of fun with MW2. Haven't had any problems with matchmaking. In fact, finding games on IW.net was near instantaneous every time, faster than L4D.

The dissident group cries the loudest, but as always are the minority.

Didn't jump on the hate bandwagon. Bought the PC version via steam, finally unlocked last night. Game is awesome. I for one really like the cinematic sequences, its like taking part in a season of 24.

I like the game, but I really really really wish it had multiplayer. I know they're moving onto an MMO next, but I wish they'd just forgo MMO and just do standard 4-8 player mp like good old diablo.
