Dude Black Ops sucks Modern Warfare 1 was awesome too but Modern Warfare 2 is the better game even though 1 had a bigger impact

COD4 is still the king of shooters. MW2 was a little too over the top for me, but at least it still plays nice and smooth like COD4. The thing I can't stand about Black Ops is the lag.

You just think they would be a little better prepared given the high number of pre-orders they had. I tried to play last night with some friends and we couldn't get in at all.

I have been trying to to get into COD Black Ops and it is just not happening, it is a OK game but it was no where near as much fun as MW2 or Halo Reach. I think I am going to sell it here soon.

I guess the lag is a problem becasue I keep getting it as well, frustrating. Is it to many folks playing?

COD4 and MW2 never had these lag issues. Seems to be a Treyarch issue to me.

The next COD is being developed by IW, but with all the drama they had with Activision they lost a lot of key talent. So who knows if the next game will maintain the same level of quality.

Dismissal of senior employees

On March 1, 2010, Activision amended its report with the Securities and Exchange Commission to add notification that two senior employees of Infinity Ward were being fired due to "breaches of contract and insubordination". This coincided with Jason West (Infinity Ward president, game director, co-CCO, and CTO) and Vince Zampella (CEO and co-founder of Infinity Ward) editing their profiles on the website LinkedIn to list Infinity Ward as a former employer as of March 2010. Reportedly, a meeting between Zampella, West, and Activision staff occurred on March 1, after which neither Zampella nor West were seen; this was followed by the arrival of security guards at the studio.[27][28] It was later confirmed by Activision that West and Zampella had been dismissed, and had been replaced on an interim basis by Activision CTO Steve Pearce and head of production Steve Ackrich.[29]

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick addressed Infinity Ward studio heads on March 2, 2010 about Zampella and West's dismissal. A second meeting was held with all of Infinity Ward's employees on hand. The outcomes of those meetings are currently unknown,[30] but Activision has explained that Infinity Ward is still "central" to the future of the Call of Duty franchise. Activision has created a new studio, Sledgehammer Games, to create an "action-adventure" installment of the Call of Duty franchise. As of March 3, 2010, Activision maintains that Infinity Ward is still the central pillar of their Call of Duty franchise and this new studio is merely an extension of the franchise.[31]

Further departures

Following West and Zampella's firings, nearly half of the remaining Infinity Ward employees resigned. Throughout April and May 2010, 46 employees, among the lead designers and programmers who worked on Modern Warfare 2, abruptly left Infinity Ward. All have so far declined to comment on their reasons for leaving.

Yeah I'm kinda fed up with Black Ops right now. I've been playing more COD4 and MW2 lately.

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

I haven't played COD4 in a while, but MW2 is good too. Been going back to that recently as well. For me it just depends who is online. Some of my friends prefer one over the other.

I just keep playing one until I get tired of it.

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

Basically COD4 or MW2>BO. However, another reason BO can be a guilty pleasure for me is it is so damn easy! My KD is over 2 in BO and around 1.2 or 1.5 ish in MW2 and COD4.

What gun are you using in BO? I am seriously struggling in that game but I did just start and really don't know the maps. I think I am level 13.
