I'd recommend starting as medic. You get alot of points reviving your team and can just sort of sit behind and wait for people to die then run out and revive em and head for cover again and try and keep a medkit out around you always for even more points. Once you get use to using cover you can pop out now and then and lay down some fire. The machine guns have always been pretty strong against infantry because of its uselessness against vehicles or people behind cover ust be sure to fire in burst which really goes for any weapon in BC2 or the accuracy will go to crap (besides the engineers SMGs which have next to no recoil). And with all those points you'll unlock alot of general weapons which recently got beefed up and can now put scopes on em so they're actual viable weapons to use till you unlock some of the higher weapons in the other classes.

December 10, 2010 8:53:48 AM

Christmas special??? any idea what it is?
December 10, 2010 11:00:55 AM

its on steam, so u can check it out there.
December 10, 2010 11:49:09 AM

Killing Floor.... Looks like that could be fun. Might just have to get it.
December 10, 2010 2:36:43 PM

very fun... kinda poorly optimized though.
December 13, 2010 3:34:04 AM

How is it poorly optimized? If your meaning fps it's fine for me, never drops below 50 and Im still on a 9800gt :p . But probably you run a higher resolution. Killing floor rocks at lan parties and it suits many playing styles. Highly recommended.
December 13, 2010 9:59:52 AM

I shouldn't have said optimized. It's a bit buggy... like when you're running multiple monitors, you need to unplug the others otherwise it bugs out and crashes. or sometimes I get some serious lag. But that's just on the server end I think

where do you download the patch? will it improve multiplayer, cause my ping in multiplayer is over 900 it's just rediculous. and i'm in south africa so internet sucks here. and every 50 seconds literally it says CONNECTION INTERRUPTED and then when i'm connected again some one killed me cause i stood still when i had no connection. will the patch fix these problems??
December 13, 2010 2:45:16 PM

Patch should download and install automatically through Steam.

Ping however.... The patch isn't going to help that.

COD2 is still the best of the series -
Soon as they went ModenWarfare it went to the crapper with Ops not much different than MW2
Now its just a shootem up game with slick graphics AND Ops runs like a turd
on most PCs,including my own..........
I really liked the WW2 Saving Private Ryan feel it used to have
December 13, 2010 5:21:27 PM

Get Day of Defeat: Source if you want "Saving Private Ryan" style game that runs smooth. However, not a lot of strategy.
December 13, 2010 6:30:02 PM

I play it on the 360 and I must say I really like it.
Within the first month I had MW2 I traded it back in, but I've put a few hours into Black Ops and it's up there with COD4. Although COD4 is the best FPS of this gen.

Could be completely different on PC though
December 13, 2010 8:02:46 PM

Modern Warfare 2 is better than Black Ops IMO as far as single player experience is concerned. It has the right balance of action, drama and gimmick unlike Black Ops, there are too much drama and gimmick that hinders the action. And MW2s protagonist is better. I mean how cool is soldier with the nickname of "Soap" plus the mohawk. :sol: 
And also the supporting characters like Capt Price with the moustasche and Ghost with his skull mask destroys Woods in his sweaty half naked get-up. :pt1cable:

Never played COD until MW2 on X-Box, was very fun and easy, could play for hours. Got it for PC about 4 months after release, and it was aweful. Almost every lobby was laggy, and at night would play on foreign connections, which was a joke. Then had to deal with all the hacked lobbies and hackers, which was just aweful. I also still play COD4 on PC, which is also fun still.

This poll is completely bias. Im sorry but if you are going to make a poll you need to have a wide array of options besides (YES, NO, and YES)
December 15, 2010 8:08:31 AM

im sorry but the question is a yes and no, having other option there is jsut having another no's and yes'
December 16, 2010 2:19:05 AM

Well, possibly just "I dont' know" xD

New patch came out yesterday. Combine that with my new build, and the game ran as it should. Smooth as silk. My setup....

Game: 1280x1040, 8X AA, 8X AF, High graphics, Shadows on, impact on.
System: 955 BE OC'd 3.5ghz, 4gb DDR3 1333, GTX 460 1GB OC edition

My system is solid, but its nothing "special." The game settings might not be the highest level, but it ran at 65-100 fps (kept it capped at 100) without any issue. No massive FPS losses, no shuttering. The killcams were finally running properly, without all that shuttering. The smoke, explosions.... all looked 1000x better.

I'm really happy. Gamed for about 3 hours last night. Lots of fun.
December 16, 2010 1:02:14 PM

yup, I can confirm, patch released, very well done.
December 16, 2010 1:10:21 PM

And looking at your setup Martin, I bet you were getting pretty stellar performance....

Hopefully its not TOO late for COD:BO. I know it drove a lot of people away from the game.
December 16, 2010 1:38:06 PM

Yea it played well, about 120+ at max settings. But it would occasionally drop down to 30 fps because of the poor optimization... it's great now though :) 
December 16, 2010 2:27:41 PM

Played at my friends house for two hours, Not going to buy it, the Stealth part is missing like COD MW, constant unreal action is too much. Nothing special. Dsnt even feel like a COD at all. Good Graphics cant save it, when gameplay is medicore. A big big let down.
IMO Call of duty MW is still the best.
December 16, 2010 7:20:41 PM

I really enjoyed the stealth, but there's still some of that in B-O, like in the arctic, and in the Vietnam river.
December 16, 2010 7:28:18 PM

:)  well looks like u dont need a monster pc now.

zombies is gonna be easier for me now :)  cmon bring on that extra FPS!!!
December 16, 2010 7:28:48 PM

Probably the best 2 maps. And if you want to run and gun, just play some Nuketown :-)
