    In regards to the civilian scene... I'm usually the anal-retentive conservative type a-hole that complains about controversy, but in this case I don't see the big deal.

    Someone made the point that the difference between it and say GTA games, is that in GTA while you have the option to kill mass civilians, you aren't forced to per the parameters of the misson/game.

    That is relevant, yet are we surprised that game developers continue to push this envelope?

    But all the victims are white, so that makes it 'ok' right?

    Show me that scene with them gunning down muslims or africans and then I'll let out a low-key whistle and say 'woah.'

    Spongebob has a extremely negative impact on the development of children's minds. Cartoons nowadays are not as good as they were back in the 80s/90s, except a few but that's about it. Spongebob= Brainrot.

    Would you be so negative about that 1 mission if Modern Warfare 2 had been everything you hoped it to be? I think not ;)

    I think you have no idea what I am angry about. It took you three pages to understand what I said in my first post.

    Hookey nothing will change his mind, let him go. I understand his point about the industry in general(heck I have watched my beloved Tom Clancy games be COMPLETELY destroyed by "consolitus") I even broke down and bought GR:AW2 for my PS3:shadedshu I DON'T like playing FPS's on my console...

    MW2 is great game despite it's MP shortcomings(tho in my brief MP experience I had no issues with it)but I see "the masses" points on it.
    Besides we all know who is to blame for all this...

    SHEPERD!!!:roll:

    personally, i wont buy mw2 because it is 60 bucks and they dicked over the PC community. i am a PC gamer and i own a PS3 for the bluray mostly. i am ALWAYS looking for discounts and great deals. in fact, rarely should you ever pay MSRP for anything. this isnt easy for bleeding edge tech geeks to hear, but we tend to waste a ton of cash on what is new. the price drops 10% in 2 weeks. buy it then! steam is always having sales on games. i bought the l4d2 4 pack which saved me 17 bucks! also, find a solid seller on tpu. there is so much awesome stuff for sale at 30-50% off and it is in like new condition. i know i am ranting, but people complain about how expensive this stuff is. it doesn't have to be, just exercise a little self control and do a little research.
    DonInKansas, shevanel and PP Mguire say thanks.

    I try to explain the "used on TPU" portion to people and they dont wanna hear it (unless they are part of the community of course). Hell i just got an 800 dollar phase unit for the trading of 2 280s worth around 300 bucks. Deal or no deal? DEAL!

    Same goes for games. People sell them for pocket change here.

    You can like the MP or not, i dont, i wonder if its that hard to make the game with matchmaking and dedicated servers, and let the user choose whatever he likes. the lean option its not there, why???:confused:. In my ps3 i have 6 users profile, i buy a game and the 6 users can play it, now i bought MW2 for pc and guess what THERE IS NO USER PROFILE:twitch:, so if my brother wants to play the game he has to buy his own license. So in ps3 the game for my brother and i cost 60 but in pc it would cost me 120 and that without the expansions!!!. So i bought the game and two days later i finished it, gone are my 60 bucks:mad:.

    As i said in the begining, you can like the MP or not, but in pc there are a lot of F**** up things. thanks Infinity Ward:respect:, now i know this is not a port, since a least in the consoles you can create your own profile.

    They don't want people to have dedicated servers because they want you all to pay a subscription to get similiar ( although much more limited ) services direct from them...

    I know. I want to snap up dragon age twice as much as I did before just because it's so superior on PC versus the consoles (I'm that big of a PC fanboy). It's still $50, but that somehow doesn't seem quite as bad as the $60 for COD. Plus I'm sure it will drop in price faster.

    I'm wondering the same thing on ID Software's side . . . if that rumor turns out to be true.

    <sigh>

    Nothing will irritate PC gamers more than being treated like consolers. But, it's sad, it shows where the devs think the market is, and we're just an afterthought.

    Big reason why I'm so willing to support the few game devs who've yet to cave to the wills of the console market . . . ID/Raven Software (although they're spewing blasphemy right now), CryTek (although, this will probable change with CryEngine 3), GSC (poised to change if the rumors of STALKER 2 are correct) . . .

    <sigh>

    Agreed, that's why Tripwire Interactive will always have my full support. Woe betide them if they try anything like this of course ;)

    I know you lot don't want to hear this, but if you really like combat shooters, why on Earth are you pussy-footing around with these 'perk' games, when you could be playing something like ARMA II?

    Is it really that difficult for you? Because I can't see any other reason why you'd let your heart bleed out on the floor when there's a great game already out there.

    Anyways, that's the only 'solution' I can think of.

    Meanwhile, MW2 SP was ok, but Lord have they ever heard of stamina or tactics? Why is it that every COD turns out to be a blitzkrieg? I guess their idea of stealth is a suppressor..woo!

    I've been playing Red Orchestra and it's mods for the last 6 years or so, with the odd diversion on Killing Floor. I don't intend to stop either, at least not until they realease RO:Heroes of Stalingrad :)

    All these other so called 'realistic' shooters and their turbo-hopping rambo nonsense leave me cold I'm afraid :(
