    Is MP in the US really unplayable (PC version of course)? That will make me hold off on a purchase if its true...

    I played just fine ... although the hit boxed seemed a tad off for me (maybe that is the lag lol)

    I wouldnt say it was unplayable from what I had to deal with ... I still went like 20-5 almost every map

    MP has had a lot of lag for me. I have opened ports and heard rumors of a server reboot on the Treyarch servers tonight.

    We don't need no stink'n Patentges!...hehehe but really that's just the patent.. the dev could have gone on for years. I mean black ops is special forces right? Do they really have patents on everything they use... hehehe I would hope not.. why give away ideas? Just my two cents..

    But seriously TheMailMan78 you're my hero! :toast: good call! could you imagine how many kids would raise all kinds of hell if they didn't have red dot sighs with there 360's and ps3's...lol :roll::roll:

    Lord forbid that people don't have rds and acog's for their weapons that weren't available during the 60s and 70s! No one remembers what it's like firing with iron sights anymore! :laugh:

    Edit: Nice floating apple glitch. It's so OP!

    This happened to me earlier. I would imagine the servers being flooded with millions at once. It was a pain in the ass. I got last kill and when the enemies died it was cheesey becasue they froze and just fall to the ground...I thought it was a ATI error, but it's everywher now...The next round it lagged so much my game froze and steam crashed...:banghead:


    On a side note, I will be uploading a new video tonight of the 1st part of the game (Operation 40) it is set in Cuba during the Bay of Pigs invasion ...pretty intresting story...I started the second mission now, but had to go to work.

    Ironsights are where its at, I can't stand scoped anythings, part of the reason I can't play Sniper/Recon for crap.

    From what i've been reading seems theres a prob with this game running on 2 core cpus. In single player mainly the mp is a lag fest for most players regardless of their system.

    That's what I've been reading too. Gona wait until the game is patched to before even considering this one.

    Why are so many PC games that EA and Activision publish complete junk when they launch? I don't understand why the "push it out the door full of problems, patch it later" approach has become the norm. At least pretend to care or have a little pride in your work.

    Because people will buy it, Activision blizzard have some of the most popular IPs out there, they'll sell regardless, so might as well patch them later.

    Yeah, that's true. I love going out to my friend's pasture and shooting a couple of rounds with his m4 variant ar-15, as well as his m14 and Ak. Of course, my favorite is his father's H&K G3, but that's scoped. :rockout:

    I just started the single player and the first 5 minutes of game play have shown me that its a clone of MW1 and MW2 just different story and weapons.

    Thread hijack, lol. I think I will get 007 Blood Stone before I get Black Ops. Not a fan of exploding crossbows, not even in Turok.

    I've been playing single player all day super smooth, i have edited the config though. One thing in there that struck me odd that was off was something called somethingsomething_multithreaded_devices 0. ill check when i get home if i get lag when only using 2 cores though and see if that's the problem.
