    .223 is a varmint round. .308 is a MAN bullet.

    You're very right on the m14. I've only shot it once compared to the five times on the G3, so I guess I'm a little biased. The m14 is very well rounded, and extremely reliable.

    .308 is definitely a man bullet, wimps need not apply.

    BC2 Multiplayer is worth it IMO.

    Only games I see on my radar is Homefront or Brink or Red Orchestra 2.

    IMO, BF, CoD, & MoH are just cash cows for publishers. Sad but true.

    keyword: was

    BC2 multiplayer didn't hold up as well as BF2 or 1942. Only if it had an SDK...:shadedshu.

    I've looked through the game and the only way I've found is to create your own game is via "Private Match", which is afaik a Listen server, and joining it will go through the Internet (all AFAIK, haven't tested).
    I've heard joining games via the console with "connect 192.168.1.1" etc doesn't work either.

    So if you've got 10MB+ net you should be fine... >_>

    If anyone has any -solid proof- about LAN/creating your own dedicated server, spit it out already lol.

    I'm reading that people who rented servers can't even join their own servers. :confused:
    This is one of a few posts on the subject.
    read this

    Oh and read this post. Let see how long it takes before they respond to the problems people are having on the PC. If you are wondering who the community manager is (or whatever his position is) it's JD 2020.

    I haven't played the SP yet and only played the MP briefly for about 2 hours and I have to say it's awesome! I am not surprised with all the bugs and yes they are annoying, but the mp was still playable for me. The lag was in the middle for me...I think others had it worse. At first I didn't like the idea of having to buy your perks and attachments, but now I think it's cool because you can save up and get what you want without waiting to rank up further in game play. I am probably one of the few who actually prefer it to be similar to MW2 because it's kinda nice to jump into a new game and already know how to play it. Was it worth 60 bucks? Not really, but what game is? IMO 59.99 seems to be the new trend for games nowadays. I love hardcore mode and dedicated servers...once the patch is released this will be in my top fav mp games!:)

    that trend is bad enough with full games, let alone expansions, or whatever this game is.

    I wouldn't argue it's not fun... if it works, it's about as fun as any COD game... but there is no way it had the same development costs as a full game - they are ripping off their core fanbase and eventually i would hope, those fans will get sick of it. i doubt it, but i hope.

    I've been saying exactly this. All the CODs are exactly the same, just different theme.

    One of my mate's is having the same problem. He's got a C2D E6600 and the game runs crap. Mobo's no good for OC'ing so can't do that.
    Another mate's got a q6600 @ stock speeds and he's having no problems AFAIK; but as Mailman said in another thread; anything less than i7 or 1055/1090T would be stupid at this point. I'm trying to talk my mate into upgrading to i7 as we speak :laugh:

    Yeah, hence them being CoD titles! When you buy a CoD game, you know EXACTLY what you are getting. If you dont like it, dont buy it, simple.

    I liked CoD 4, 5, 6 and guess what? I like CoD 7.

    If you like the CoD titles from 4 onwards, chance, are you will like Black Ops. But if you didnt like CoD 4/5 and have a problem with CoD being CoD, steer clear of Black Ops!

    Yeah I totally agree that the delelopment costs were low for this game and $60 is no where near what it's worth.:ohwell: I bought this game because I am a huge fan of COD, but this will most likely be my last Call of Duty game due to the constant lack of "new" development....and I can barely afford games as it is.

    Thats where you are wrong. The game was far better when they kept it in the realm of plausibility. CoD:UO has yet to be matched. The last decent one they made was CoD:WaW.
