The problem is that they're taking the protests too far.

Maybe the IOC shouldn't have given the Olympics to a government of thugs and liars.

But we didn't get the Olympics this year   ninja

I think the Best Buy CE is supposed to have the Rhino.  of course you can't use it until you hit level 40.

And you can't pre-order it yet unless you live in Canada frown

interesting use of spoiler tags, not sure what you were hiding and what you were showing slywink

Overall the whole game revolves around finding the trigger point that stops the waves of enemies, then mopping up the ones that already spawned and repeating until you get to the end of the game.  It's fun if you don't think about the fact that that is all  you are doing. 

I agree though that it's bad design and trigger points like this are what really irk me in both COD4 and R6V:2

The Olympics is supposed to be above politics. As such, the IOC is supposed to choose appropriate hosts for the Olympic Games. Instead they chose China. If we could get an IOC that was less politically driven, then maybe this would never have happened.

very true, I think awarding the games to China was not very well thought out.

supposedly that is active subscriptions and does not count lapsed ones.  Seems pretty high for that imo, but I think they've sold more than 10million copies of the game

Have you ever turned a blind eye to software or music piracy?

I wasn't aware that the act of stealing software online or music online could directly kill someone.  hmmm, you live in an odd odd place.

Telling the management = Not a jerk. Good for you for trying to help.
Calling the cops = Kind of a jerk. I doubt you can say under 100% certainty that you know exactly what the situation was.

It's not his job to know what the exact situation is, but it is the cop's job and they will hopefully get to the bottom of it.  If nothing was going on, they will deal with it appropriately.  The act of calling them isn't bad, it's not like they show up and immediately haul everyone away without checking things out.

The police have a rough job.

If you see someone driving drunk, call the cops and give a description.  Maybe they aren't drunk, hell maybe they just dropped a cig and swerved a bit.  Either way the cops can find out. 

As an aside, I'm slightly amused that I could have predicted prior to the thread who would say it was a jerk thing, who would say it wasn't and who would fly off the handle.  Some people are very predictable.

Wow, taking a long break from COD4 and coming back is great.  Played with Jarrodhk the whole night and we pretty much dominated every match.  Unfortunately like I said, there was only two of us, we missed the rest of the regular shooter crowd.

I actually went out and was social on the barscene last night since my connection went out.  I'll be on getting double xp most of today and tonight though.  Hope to see ya there.

I want my 800 points back. thumbsdown

These are horrible.....HORRIBLE. Chinatown is ridiculous, the worst of the lot, Broadcast is average at best, Creek is nothing but a snipe fest, and the other map can't be played through TDM. Way too much camping, way too much sniping, way too many shotgun/P90 ass clowns jumping and shooting, jumping and shooting, camping all the corners. I hate to say it but the game might have jumped the shark with these maps.

I can't believe this was the best they could do after what....6 months?

It sounds to me like you have fundamental problems with the gameplay itself which has absolutely nothing to do with the new maps. People have been playing that way since the first week the game was out. How you managed to not notice until now is beyond me.

There, that's what I meant to say in a more PC way.  Instead I said it in a way Jblank can understand.  I thought since I saw that rude pm from you that you had taken your comments to pm instead of on the forum, but then I see you calling me an ass here. lol, I take back the nice part of my pm I guess.

I wasn't attacking you personally, I was pointing out the flaws in your logic on why you didn't like the maps.  The only negative I've seen on the maps is some of the spawns are a bit iffy on placement and the cod problem with not shifting spawns soon enough when camping.

Get over it Jblank, not everything said is meant to piss you off.  If you got that mad that people were using shotguns (on a close range map) and sniper rifles (on a large open map) then you have serious issues with how fps' play.  As an added observation, I've played for several hours today and have yet to die to a shotgun on Chinatown a single time and only handfull of deaths to a p90. 
8459  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: COD4 map pack -- when? on: April 04, 2008, 08:19:15 PM
The new maps are supposed to be in the rotation of the old maps as well as in the new playlists.  I have the feeling someone screwed that up though.  They might change it when they remove the double xp this weekend.

Not sure where you get any of this from other than maybe the game just isn't for you?  These three maps are much more balanced and better designed than any of the previous ones and I'm loving them all so far.  Any time someone is camping there is at least one way around behind them and often 3. 

You bitch that there is too much camping and in the same damn sentence that there is too much shotgun and jumping and shooting.  You do know those are mutually exclusive?  Best for you to just take a break man, set down the controller, and back away. 

Killhouse is unavailable in TDM because it's tiny.  You can play it in private matches or FFA though.

Not only have I already found places to hide and climb to on the new maps, but the IW community manager said that one of the 'exploits' is his favorite way to play on that map. Tongue

In addition to the map packs hitting, I hear there may be a little extra XP up for grabs this weekend when playing on the new maps. So Iíll definitely be online this weekend to play the new maps.

The commando in the first game had the most damage up close, but at anything other than CQB it was actually lower damage than a smg.  Dont' know if they changed it, but it's good to know.

I wonder at this point if they will delay a week just so they can time with PS3's weekly Thursday update of the PSN.    That would suck big time.

I believe the weekly update on PSN has been postponed until later in April.  All DLC and patches on PSN are delayed until they update the store.

Haven't used the Famas this time around.  Liked it in the first game. 

Fairly fond of the G36c and the AKS74u

I really haven't developed a favorite yet but I have tried the Commando, the SCAR and Famas, and I prefer the SCAR so far.
