If you're playing T3-T7 tanks or TDs, you are there to get blown up, unfortunately. Go for side shots, which is easier said than done.

If any of you guys ever want to platoon up, just hit me up in the game. The name is the same.

The T44 became a good tank a patch or two ago with the upgraded engine and gun. The reason the T59 was such a terror was that it received favorable weighting in the matchmaker and often was top tank in any match. They adjusted its weighting a patch or two ago, and it's no longer as bad as it was. No T8 tank or above really fears a T59 at this point, but it it will sure mop the floor with any T7 or below.

And I definitely agree that a group of coordinated T8 mediums is hell for the other team.

Zero damage penetrating hits are still a problem, but if you read the forums, you'll see that there was a hotfix on the Russian servers for a newly discovered bug with penetration. I don't know if the US 7.4 patch had the fix in it, but if it didn't, hopefully we'll get it sooner rather than later. Anyone loudly proclaiming there wasn't a problem with 0-damage penetrating hits really needs to hush at this point.

I've also had plenty of ghost rounds. I've always assumed it was packet loss or latency, or the generous tolerances in my Russian cannons...

A sci-fi CoD might be interesting. Interesting enough at least for me not to dismiss it off-hand.

However, why would the Tony Hawk developer be capable of delivering a cool FPS?

Creston

Treyarch was the Tony Hawk developer of old; and they've been making every other CoD to come out of Activision for quite a few years now.

No, Treyarch did ports of the Tony Hawk series. Neversoft was the lead dev on the first seven games.

In theory, it's no less a sport than, say, NASCAR or any other number of activities falling under that nomenclature.

Of all the borderline sports/games available, you picked auto racing? Clearly you've never been on a race track.

WMC works quite well for recording over-the-air broadcasts. Sounds like I'll be sticking with Windows 7 for quite some time.

What's the deal with that one version of the eagle that has a big muffler on the side, above the rear wheel that looks like it belongs on a sport bike? That's just stupid looking. Plus it already has dual exhausts coming out the rear.

Dude must have been high as fuck when drawing that one.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. Wonder what the artist thought that muffler would connect to. Also, in the image before that one, the engine is only showing two exhaust ports from the head (unless they're shared exhaust ports, which would indicate low performance) and they're angled upward. I know it's just concept art, but you'd hope the artist would have some understanding of what an actual engine looks like and the reasons why.

And that last one is basically an armored Alfa Romeo Brera, which isn't a bad thing. Beautiful car in real life.

Edit: Doh, partly Brera, but really the Alfa Romeo SZ, which predated the Brera.

Well, it is called fantasy.

Thanks guys, very interesting. I can't help but notice parallels with England: tough, honest Northerners; clean, intelligent Southerners; strange foreign types across the English Cha Narrow Seas and of course, a wall with unspeakable terrors beyond it to the north. Not very imaginative, but very well realised.

AGoH also has the best TV series intro sequence I've ever seen, it's just a shame that there's no scale on the map it shows.

I've seen multiple people read Game of Thrones as a fictionalized War of the Roses, so you're spot on noticing the England parallels.

Creston,

You may have already investigated this angle, but you need to make sure the TV will display HDMI inputs with 1:1 pixel mapping. Most, if not all, TVs will scale to crop out overscan. There's probably some setting (varies by manufacturer) that will enable 1:1 pixel mapping. My other thought is that there still might be some image processing that the TV is doing to the image. Look for a "game mode" or similar setting to skip the TV's image processing. That will also help decrease the apparent input lag between screen and mouse.

I run my PC over HDMI to a 40" LCD Samsung that is a few years old. Everything looks as it should.

You may have already come across all these suggestions, but if you haven't, hopefully one of them will work.

P.S. And you're positive the panel is a 1920x1080 one, right? That it looks good at 1024x768 is a little curious.

Edit: Regarding what Enahs said, how far away are you sitting from the TV? TV pixel sites are big, remember.

The game on the 360 runs fine. No problems like with BO or MW2. The Elite service is something separate from the game. It's a stats/community portal, and it isn't working right now.

The least those jerks could have done was shoot the poor bastard in the head before pushing him off the bridge.

And the throwaway line about his family being OK, heh, sure guy, you have no idea who I am, but you've somehow already rescued my wife and daughter?

By the way, does anyone else's significant other answer the door in sexy-time clothes?

Here's another good use for Kinect in a console FPS: How about adding lean? It seems like it would be pretty simple to add. I suppose they wouldn't want to give Kinect users an advantage over those just using controllers.

While I welcome any opportunity to belittle our conservative justices, this is simply not one of them. Too many websites, be they tech or liberal political sites, took the justices' remarks out of context. Here's the link to the oral arguments: http://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/argument_transcripts/08-1332.pdf. Read those passages in context and then decide whether the justices are idiots. (Pro tip: Scalia is said to be a sarcastic bastard, and we all know how well sarcasm translates into print.)
