Nah, not unless they can prove you have a pirated copy. Would be cool if they reset everyone's xp at midnight Monday, but it doesn't really matter. They also could have turned off the mp servers until midnight, but this lets them do some early load testing.

he bought them teg, he's an actual store that buys from a distributor.  He's just breaking the street date.

they won't ban people, they probably won't reset stats.  Leaderboards are disabled until launch.

Fucking Hark.  I was minding my own business, playing a bit of NFS: Most Wanted, and he sent a party invite to chat.  I thought it would primarily consist of good-natured harassment about tomorrow's Eagles/Colts game, but instead he spent our session discussing how great the Black Ops multiplayer is, how much fun the various new killstreak rewards are, and how important it is that I pick up a copy on Tuesday so that I can get involved with the immediate multiplayer goodness that will start on Tuesday.

I wasn't going to pick up a copy merely because of limited funds, but how can I not after Hark's glowing recommendations?  And the chance to kill both him and Kato.  Damnit.   disgust

I guess I'm in.  Fuckers.

It's too bad that the PS3 always seems to be the "red headed stepchild" of multiplatform games.  It sucks that the framerate on the PS3 is bad for BO, wasn't COD4 on the PS3 just as smooth as the xbox?

After 5 hours or so in multiplayer I have a few thoughts... (and I will probably ramble a bit!)

So far I like pretty much everything.  Very few 'bullshit' moments like I felt with previous versions.  Killstreaks are powerful but have counters that are pretty good.  Weapons seem pretty balanced.  Shotguns are very deadly very close, much less so past that distance.  Money can be hard to come by, and contracts can be very difficult to complete sometimes. 

The theater is pretty impressive.  A lot of the changes are straight from Halo such as the custom game mode and theater fileshares.  Most of the stats W@W had on the website you can now view in game, including heat maps of games.  Pro perks seem pretty fun to unlock mostly.  I have Hardened Pro, Hacker Pro and Ghost Pro at this point. 

The LMG's overall are very strange since most of them have 40ish round magazines and reload fast.  It's a big change from previous games.  You still have the slow movement speed with them.  The M60 is a beast and has a 100 round box. 

The sheer level of customization is pretty amazing and good.  The tactics have changed a lot imo due to the equipment and tactical grenades.  Motion Sensors and Jammers are pretty nice.

I love putting a claymore somewhere and then tossing a decoy grenade on it.  The enemy flocks to my claymore. 

I'm a bit too tired to type up a real 'review', but hopefully will get more down tomorrow.  Overall I'd say anyone who liked any of the previous games and plays multiplayer should have a blast.

"discalaimer - I am loaded riht now - 3:03am EST"

Hark sent me 2 invites tonight. First was @ 7:30pm - we had friends coming over for drinks before pub night so I was not able tp accept.
Last invite was about 20mins ago - did not accept beacuse I am way tooo loaded to play and do not want to hear how great it is..... (sour grapes I admit)

I will be on on Monday post midnight when I pick up my 2 copies.

I love you Hark - but tonight we are breaking up.

edit - if I find out later that he was offering DL codes for the game I will be pissed.

I have MW2 for both PS3 and 360 and they are basically the same.  I can't tell which is better.

If it helps, Amazon was offering a $20 gc good for any future purchase, and also includes free release date shipping if you have a Prime account. If you don't, I think they were just charging $1.

It seems like most games I've been purchasing have either a $10 or $20 gc if you pre-order from Amazon. I haven't paid full price for a game in a long time, which is nice because I don't have much (any) money.

Heh. What actually happened was that you sent me an invite to play black ops, which I thought was lame so I sent a message that said "lame".  Then you apparently sent a message saying it was a mistake but I must have missed the notification because I didn't see it until I went to turn off the box.

That would mean I'd have to put my purchase on a credit card and my wife will find out.  As I should not be purchasing games right now Hark and I came up with a few "foolproof" plans.  One is that while playing I just present it as one of the Call of Duty games I already own.  After all, it'll look similar and play similarly, and it is a Call of Duty title.  How could she know?   ninja  But she's way too smart for that, so odds are I may have to go with Plan B.

Plan B is to send Hark the cash, have him purchase the game for me, and then ship it to me so that I can tell my wife that Hark bought it for me and shipped it to me like he and Kato did with prior COD titles.  I'll have proof in the shipping package.  My story will be truthful, and enough to help me pass a lie detector test (my wife's stare, which I always fail). 

I am so getting divorced after this.   crybaby

I do have two problems with the game, both have to do with the map Nuketown.  It's a small (tiny) map that plays like Dome/Shipment/Wetworks.  In other words, it's an awful clusterfuck of chaos where tactics only barely matter and you can just spin in circles and get hits.

The real problem comes from the new voting system combined with this map.  I don't quite get it, but where we pretty much univerally hated the three maps I mentioned, people seem to LOVE Nuketown.  Every time it comes up it gets voted to be replayed...again...and again....and again.  It's awful.

When it comes to government, I appreciate the system of democracy, despite the depressing average intelligence of the general public.  However, when it comes to online gaming, democracy is a terrible idea, especially given the depressing average maturity level of online gamers.
