Is there anything “Gimme Shelter” can’t make even cooler?

lol it looks just like MW2...they even have jetskiis and snow. o_O

I never got the mass appeal of CoD games.

I think I'm done with the CoD francise. Been playing them since the original.
But that trailer looks nice and there is zombie-mode in there, so it would be nice to play it with friends.:thup:

All my friends are getting it, but not me, :( I shall be alone.
I'm getting tired of a release every year. But if this is as good as people say it is, I'll get it some time in the future maybe.

This will probably be the last one I get unless they release a MW3. I need closure on that plot, dammit!

I just noticed that it is actually released today... I am currently at home, feeling quite ill. It just occurred to me that someone might think I'm skiving to play CoD... which I absolutely am not. :rolleyes:

So far, fun - have only done the first mission in the campaign, and a few multiplayer games. I'm not sure what the situation is with XBL/PSN games, but PC servers seem to be a bit shaky earlier on (~6pm GMT).

I didn't get a chance to try many servers (most were completely full or completely empty) but it's a mixed bag in terms of whether they are working or not - I was on a server that was down, another (an official Treyarch server) that had a massive amount of lag, and a third one that was just fine (apart from the occasional spike).

I've gotta try out Wager Matches sometime as well :D

Hopefully all these lag and server issues will be cleared up over the next few days, I'd be sorely disappointed if lag was the reason I wasn't being so damn awesome :rolleyes:

Do remember that treyarch absolutely sucks for their PC versions. Last CoD they did STILL hasn't been patched for the nvidea cards (like mine :/).

World at War worked just fine for me (both on my present PC running with an ATI card, and my laptop running with an nVidia card, which has no WaW-specific issues). IMO, Treyarch have been doing well with the PC releases. I just hope they and GameServers.com get the servers sorted out soon, I can't imagine it doing the game any favours if the multiplayer component revolves around getting a good server.

Aside from a few servers (so far), it seems to be playing just fine for me - absolutely no stalling in singleplayer (graphics maxed in SP and MP), which makes it more likely that my periodic stalling is server-related... I hope :p

*hugs his Radeon 5870*

However, there is an issue (in Black Ops, not WaW :p) where GPU's aren't being utilized fully (or at all) from what I've heard.

Treyarch needs to step it up for the PC version. I'm freezing up and everything every 5 seconds, and it's because of the stupid game not being optimized and leaking.
The hot-fix I got today only made it slightly better for the first game. After that the memory leaks piled up and owned me.

In my opinion Black ops is just treyarch's try hard attempt to copy modern warfare. I havn't played the campaign, but from the multiplayer ive played with my friends I already know Im not getting it. In black ops everything seems slower pace even with a 4v4 on nuke town. comapierd to a 4v4 on rust in mw2 the pace in black ops is bull. another thing is that treyarch made pistols almost compleatly useless. I used to run around sniping with my trusty usp but now pistol vs anything else, pistol loses. ALSO the sniping is horriable, is it just me who has noticed that?

Clearly, things are broken (balance-wise) if pistols were capable of being makeshift sniper rifles :p

And would you really expect to win with a pistol vs. an automatic weapon/shotgun? I wouldn't imagine secondary weapons (especially pistols) to be super effective. Personally, my opinion (and how I would use them) is that they are situational and/or a backup - if you're out of ammo for your primary, your secondary can (and is perfectly capable of) getting you out of a bind

Also, which pistol are you using? If you're running with the Python, you should have a decent chance of beating someone if you're at an appropriate range, it should only take 2 good shots to score a kill, and it fires quite quickly.

ALSO the sniping is horriable, is it just me who has noticed that?
What's horrible about it? I've noticed some weird shit like headshots not killing (which seems to be an issue with every gun, 2 headshots from an assault rifle really shouldn't leave the target standing :mad:) but I haven't had any major issues with it so far.

Could anyone give me some tips as to aiming? I've gotten it for PS3 and I can't seem to transition from PC mouse to PS3 controller too well.

Well change the sensitivity to your liking. That should help a bit.

As far as transitioning between shooter games from PC to controllers, really you just need to get used to it. Since you're not using a mouse to literally click where you shoot, just practice moving the game's cursor/aimer at targets, getting used to the speed and angle, etc. Just pretend your thumb on the controller is like your entire hand on the mouse. o.o

No but i would expect to be able to shoot someone in the back 5 times and kill them before they're able to turn all the way around and 2 shot me with the commando :p

Which pistol are you using? The Python and CZ-275, when used at appropriate range, are more than capable of taking people down with 2 (maybe 3 for the CZ) shots to the torso. They haven't really failed me yet (although, I don't use them very often since I prefer to take on the role of clearing air support, or being the asshole toting a crossbow)

Alternatively, take a Strela and clear the skies - far more valuable (in gamemodes that aren't SnD or FFA, at least) than a damn pistol :D

I kind of enjoyed the campaign for Black Ops - all over the place but great fun to shoot through.

The multiplayer felt like a bit of a let down though. The guns lack the punch that they had on MW2, and it's not like they're a major step back in terms of technology (unlike WaW vs MW1, for example). The pacing feels slower, and I can't say I like having to use points to buy guns. In MW2 it was good to be able to experiment with guns as you just unlocked them as you leveled up, now you've got to pay for them into the bargain. So if you buy a gun which turns out shit, you ain't got no points for other guns anymore.

Just my two cents.

you mean the guns actually require skill to use now?!?!?!

mw2 had ZERO recoil, and i loathed mw2 but i really like black ops. @ buying weapons problem, live and learn. next prestige youll know what to buy, and if ur not prestiging (like me) you can easily buy everything off the menu

also i love the python dual wield cuz it makes me feel like a badass from the wild west.



oh also the 74u is overrated. spectre ftw!
this is prolly my 2nd fav shooter after BC2, i like it even more than cod4 actually.

No, I mean the guns don't sound heavy, don't feel like they have power behind them. One of my favourites in MW2 was the AUG HBAR, that was completely badass with kick and a real bang behind it. The variant on BLOPS feels weak by comparison.

There's also the problem of RC-XDs, I must've gotten killed a good 5 or 6 times in one match by those things. Worse than the damn Predator Missile on MW2.

Still, it does have the crossbow, that feels pretty awesome to use :)

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
