LAN is not actually LAN. Internet access is required to authenticate. Then, the listening server runs over LAN.

iNet required.[/url].
Awwwww But i guess that isn't to bad, at least it has LAN :rockout:

Thats a rare thing to find these days

Definitely agreed,

After COD 2 the series lost it's awesomeness for me, COD 4 definity brought the awesomeness back a bit. After that it all became just a quick cash in series, hyping the name while stripping the franchise down. But to each their own of course.;)

I'll probably pick up Black Ops when it hits the bargin bin though..
People believe any game that has the COD title slapped on it will be a great game. They blindly buy into this.

Activision is doing the exact same thing to the COD series as they did with the Guitar Hero games. That's why no one plays GH games any more, people realized "why am I paying 60 bucks every time for new songs?????" They realized it's the same crap, just different songs.

Same goes with the COD series, same exact game; different theme. Activision believes they can still feed-off the success of COD4 with all these new spin-offs aka "rip-offs".

But hey, it's other peoples money, not mine that is being spent. People can't see the difference between each game 'cause there is no difference; all the same. Kind of like how movies are today; all unoriginal and all remakes.

Perfect example of this is the Saw movies, a new one every year. With each Saw movie, keeps getting worse and worse.

Oh well.

To be honest, at this point in time, from what i have seen in the last 2 hours (after the Best Buy chat and recent Tweets). Treyarch are listening to the community to produce a game that is going to be be AMAZING.

I am really really happy with everything i am hearing so far.

I can only hope Treyarch releases a game that makes all the bad juju go away from Infinity Ward. It looks promising so far.

The Call of Duty series took a downfall when CoD 5 was released, it was a abortion of a game, CoD4 and CoD1 are probably the best, MW2 and CoD4 are almost alike, CoD BO looks almost the same as MW2. Its literally like a update for the game, that costs $120 (Aussie Dollars) I wont be purchasing this game, after watching the previews, gameplays etc.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion ;)

The CoD titles aren't everybodies cup of tea, but A LOT of people play and enjoy them. For me, World At War was worth the purchase for the sheer amount of time I spent on the Zombie mode (not many people can deny how much fun that is!).
Sure I'd enjoy COD too if I didn't have to pay for it.

All I will say is this "Im playing Black Ops right NOW and its a GREAT game. You are not, so my opinion of the said title is more valid".

If you dont want to play it, dont buy it. Your loss. Yes, Activision are a bunch of monay grabbing whores. But we have to have something to play. If not we would all be sat around waiting another 10 years for CounterStrike 2 to arrive!

It seems that your one of these people that let blind hate for Activision, or the games industry as an whole, cloud their judgement and write off something they have never even tried!

I like single player campaigns with good action and a good story, Black Ops has both.

MW2 was a piece of dung and WaW was boring. I still haven't bought MW2, because it is still $60. I'll buy it when it's $20. Zombies do not add great excitement for me. Yeah, it's ok sometimes, but doesn't add any real value to a game.

I hope BO is better than the last 2 releases. CoD4 was the last good one.

But we all know console gamers have lower standards of quality, thus the comment is valid.

I never know if your being serious or not, but I will bite ;)

I dont like low quality games or condone them. I console game because it suits my lifestyle, not because I think a console is better than a gaming PC.

With a rig like that and you don't even pay for your games? :slap: some people can't afford a rig any where as good as your's and have to make do with a budget rig so they can legally buy their games :shadedshu

When I used to PC game, all of my games were legit ;) I do have a modified 360, but if the games good, I buy it, simple ;) All of the CoD titles are worth owning.

I test most of the games before buying them. I do own the whole NFS series, Battlefield games, COD4 and COD5, Mass Effect games, Dragon Age and a few others that are really awesome. :D
