    You PC guys really got a superiority complex, don't you? "I'm on a PC, I'm so god damn awesome, I can run Crysis on High! Can your Xbox or PS3 do that? Now excuse me while I bitch about dedicated servers and play some multiplatform games because only a few developer's give a shit about making quality exclusive games."

    See, I can do this Console Wars shit too.

    Well, congratulations, but that still does nothing to my point that popularity != quality.

    Plus, most people will be gone from the game in 6 months, and not even because of quality, but because the trend will move on. I am yet to see a recent FPS game that manages to maintain its fanbase for a reasonable time. OTOH, there are still 1000s of people playing Unreal Tournament online, and it was released in 1998.

    Im on Pc, im so damn awensome ! ...meh

    Well, games generally are getting more and more dumbed down, its not some rocket science to actually notice it.
    And its not becouse console players vs PC players war, its a lil more complex than that,belive me.

    And about 6 months for mw2 -> battlefield BC 2 comes out soon, and beta looks more then promising.

    It didn't even take six months. Even with the early release spike, MW2 never had more PC players than CoD4 playing it per day, and those numbers have been steadily dropping ever since.

    And yet the Console versions stay relatively stable, because we don't have to BAAAW about dedicated servers.

    And Unreal Tournament? Seriously?

    One argument for why the 360 or the Ps3 is better than PC is that they have a few exlusives that the Pc doesn't...The other argument is that Pc gaming is too complicated...

    I understand that Pc gaming is complicated but there are many places on the web to get help :)

    And any console exclusives are outweighed by the sheer magnitude of the PC library which inlcudes tens of thousands of games over the past few decades.... Can the Ps3 or 36o boast that?

    Besides, the console exclusives eventually find their way to Pc whether by porting or ROMS(both of these can be legal such as buying the console version and then making a PC compabitle ROM)..

    Sure, the PC gets "bad" ports like MW2 but this port is only "bad" insofar as it has online similar to console online whearas PC games generally have far superior online with dedicated servers and stuff...

    So, you fail...

    And anyway, PC version of MW2 is just as good as consoles...which is why PC gamers are complaining because PC FPS games generally have higher online standards than Console FPS games..

    By the way, I own a Xbox 360 and don't play very many PC games...but I realize that you seem very anti-PC gamer for some reason...

    I'm sorry, I'm just being a smart ass. :lol:

    I have nothing against PC or consoles, I use both. It's just a matter of preference (and what games I want).

    Well, there are only very few of those exclusives for me that I'd like to play anyway, which doesn't justify getting a console.

    How is PC gaming complicated again? :?

    If PS3 was backward-compatible it could compete with the PC library. Sadly, Sony fucked that up.

    Seriously what? Has people playing it? You'd be surprised. Me mentioning it? Yes, it's the best futuristic multiplayer FPS up to date.


    I'm not anti-console, I love NES, SNES, GBA, NDS, PSX, PS2, Gamecube, N64, and I'll probably like PS3 once it has more games that actually interest me. I guess, this pretty much makes me anti-XBOX. I can count not more that 5 games that would actually be interesting for me to play on XBOX or 360 that aren't available for PC.

    But yes, it is also my opinion that XBOX is 99% marketing 1% gaming, and the sad part is that the target audience is buying it.

    "Mindless XBOXers are certainly a trend. That doesn't imply that all who play XBOX are mindless though, and the pathetic strawman is pathetic. Maybe OakChair, or whatever the name is, should stop being such an asshole.

    The console versions only stay stable until the next big release, and then the playerbase drops off sharply. I'm not surprised you don't understand why that is, or why there's still large communities playing 10+ year old pc games online.

  16. I should have bought Assassin's Creed 2 the first time.

    Now that I have it, Fuck MW2.

    atleast it's "possible" to swan dive from buildings into hay and be perfectly fine. And if not, you blame your abilities.

    You guys should look forward to the news program staring me murdering a casino owner by distracting his bodyguards with waves of prostitutes and then killing myself while trying to climb down the side of the building.

    I'd wonder what happened to that whole thought of, when you use akimbo your guns accuracy and whatnot will be reduced? I say this because the dual shotguns, the 1887s that you reload terminator-2 style, are horribly balanced. They have a range that dwarfs all the other shotguns, more damage than the others, deadeye accuracy even with akimbo, they reload quicker in akimbo than with a single, if you alternate between them you don't have to worry about fire gaps. The akimbo 1887s have no kind of honest drawback I can see, I don't see how someone thought they were fine with these kinds of stats.

    That and I really hope IW fixes this Javelin problem already, can't play demolition, can't play search and destroy, can't play headquarters, can't use shotguns, can't knife or use shields. It's honestly becoming a gamebreaking problem, I'm just hoping IW doesn't take their long sweet time screwing around with glitches/exploits on this one like they did for the first MW.

    because in MW2 it's more important that things are awesome than that they're balanced and/or realistic.
     
  19. You guys speak as If the original was at all balanced or realistic.

    The realism on the first was just a showpeace on some levels, particularly the mission involving the failed assassination of Zakahev via a sniping op from over 1 mile in distance. The AC-130 mission is not at all as close to realism as the game depicts, and the Multiplayer AC-130 of MW2 is actually more realistic.

    I thought that was the case for any recent FPS game.
