    No. He did not want to spoil it. But you can tell...he is really excited about it.

    It does use a few movie cliches, but the writer(s) can be forgiven for that because they tie in well with the plot.

    I really hope this isn't a let down... nobody will forgive Treyarch if that happens - again.

    For some reason, this gamemode sounds really fun. I really love the "man with the golden gun" type game style. Brings me back to Goldeneye on the N64.

    Modes 1 and 2 will cause all kinds of rage quites when aimbots are introduced. :p Modes 2 and 3 won't be so costly though. But with only a few players at a time some with aimbot(s) will have a field day.

    I always look forward to the hacks so I can see a knife fly across the map from 200 yards away and somehow hit someone in the eye socket. Going to be hilarious to see on youtube.

    No doubt it's going to be funny. While those trying to rank up after a week or so come out looking like :ohwell:. Cheaters love to pray on the clueless.

    I wonder if ranking up will be server side or is it client side? If it's client side online cheating shouldn't be that bad. If this time your rank is all server side that's another story. It will probably be told by legit players :)mad::cry::twitch::(:ohwell: ). But lets see how that fans out though :p.

    It is ALWAYS client side for some dumb reason. I know, I know, you would think they would learn by now. Well basically, you edit a file, and voila, make level!

    Why is this? Well no servers means the only place you can store it is locally.

    It does (in the long run) make online gaming tolerable. The reason is that all they want to do is level up and get bored with the game. If you make it "accessible" to them to level up without having to "play the game" it can reduce the need to go online and make everyone else's online gaming experience a miserable one. Well, that's my opinion on it. :)

    Well, I f*cking love it!

    It is. It causes some, shall we say, shit your pants moments :D

    Yeah lol. I suppose this is the one good thing about me playing it on the XBOX 360 :roll:

    You think there isn't hacking on the 360? They have just not been released yet!

    Agreed. If it can access the internet, it can be hacked. Oh yeah, PCers aren't the only ones that pirate games either.

    Pre-ordered this today, and it gets released tonight at midnight >_> Even though I hated MW2, I just can't resist a CoD game *brings back fond memories of CoD2 and 4...*

    Oh and Zombie survival modes, gotta love those.


    BO's LAN required Internet connection to login/etc or something, didn't it?

    And with the hackers, well at least we can simply change servers now right? lol.

    I bought COD5 (WAW) purely for zombies. I enjoyed the campaign, I enjoyed the zombies. I probably got about 40 hours of gameplay from it. It was a meh game. I am buying Black Ops for zombies are well, but the campaign looks fun, and the multiplayer looks great. I think this is going to be a solid game, unlike MW2.

    I can only hope it delivers. I really don't want to completely give up on the CoD series because of one bad title. However, two bad titles in a row will kill the title for me. It certainly looks promising. Now if it is good enough I'm going to have to decide between PC and PS3 for gameplay...

    That's going to be very limited. Remember only 1 provider for BO :D. Oh, fun times ahead ;)

    Yeah my clan is going with BO, we already rented a server from gameservers.com (iirc that's who has sole rights to BO servers)...swapping it over to CoD BO. The pricing doesn't seem bad, and we've had great luck with their services, for my clanmates and I. Though kind of a bummer you can't do custom servers. Mod support is there tho correct?

    Looking forward to this one...the gun game looks to be very entertaining, along with zombies. I skipped MW2, I've gotten plenty out of BC2, hopefully this'll be worth it. From what I've read and seen this does look to be a fun game to play.

    I -probably- wouldn't have bothered with this after MW2 if it wasn't for the zombies lol.
    It's great being able to go from running around shooting each other all day, to being trapped in a dark house with your mates, as hordes of zombies are beating down the doors within the same game and not having to use buggy, third-party mods (not a stab at mods :eek:).

    Oh yeah, barrel of fun :rolleyes: As long as it has SOME form of remotely usuable LAN, it's a massive step-up from MW2 which is always a plus. Too many games are giving LAN functionality the chop nowa-days :(

    Yeah, but you loved MW2 as well, and it was a turd in a pretty package.

    Actually mate, the hack videos out atm (level, and all sorts of others) are all 360. Also, ONLY RUssia has come out with the pirated PC version afaik.

    :roll: I enjoyed the SP campaign, but this new MP is going to be a winner. Its a lot more balanced when it comes to the Perks now and the weapon customization is pretty cool to be honest (I stole some idiots FAMAS and it had a love heart instead of a red dot :D )

    The new Wager matches are great fun too ;)

    Yeah, Ive seen the vids of hackers running 15 Prestige lobbies etc. JTAGable consoles are becoming harder to find, so these hackers will dwindle away ;). But the PC is the major platform for hacking.
