Overall, the Call of Duty franchise has made lasting effects on the FPS realm. They have had a massive variety of features created and then copied by other games. Sadly, one of those is dedicated servers. It is a sad day whenever I see a PC game actually advertise dedicated servers on the back of the box. Its brings a tear to my eye how much has been taken from the genre without giving back. Let this be a lesson to new comers to the FPS genre, know your roots. There might not have been perks or killstreaks, but we still had so much more with mod tools and actual dedicated servers. And so, I end this article with this: Until the day comes where dedicated servers are replaced by something more effective, or mod tools become illegal, never let IW nor any game company get away with any excuse for not including dedicated servers for multiplayer or mod tools. You owe it to yourself, not if you are just a PC fanboy, but as a Gamer that demands the basic standards of their video games.
I totally on almost every single point, CoD derived itself from the pc community, and BlOps ist trying to earn praise for that. I mean – the devs did some outright stupid comments on pc-versions altogether, with Kotick in place the company just blews out utter bullshit, year for year.
I do not get the CoD-Hype altogether. Yeah, MW was a good game – but was MW2? In my opinion it is EXACTLY the same game as MW1 with slightly different maps (which are not so different at all after all). And BlOps is following that path – it is uninspired, works like crap (or not at all) and the publisher obviously does not care about the customers. After the release of WaW you have yet to see a lot of missing patches for MW2. The same thing will happen to BlOps, once the new CoD is out the support for this game will go down the drain.
But there is something I have to disagree on, talking about BFBC2:
“really buggy game, no new maps, no mod tools, servers that could only be purchased from one company”
All these things have been fixed by Dice. And while the lack of new maps might be disappointing for the first 6 months, it is understandable. At least they figured out their problems and eliminated them. Now you get new maps. Still missing are mod tools, but it is possible to rent servers from more providers nowadays.
Nice. I haven’t bought a CoD ever since it went console. As a loyal PC gamer I cringe at the idea of console features in my platform of choice especially when developers leave out dedicated servers and mods from games just because the consoles couldn’t handle them.
At the moment I’m a ardent Battlefield Bad Company 2 online player and enjoyed it so much. Of course, the lack of mod support is the major flaw that seem to stick out from a game that originated from a humble beginning that was kept alive by modders (BF1942, Desert Combat mod, BF2….).
Then, CoD Black Ops came out and I was tempted to buy. I wisely waited for reviews and I heard it was not coded to utilize the GPU, an obviously console centric design. Yes there were patches but the damage is done. – I won’t buy it. I find it insulting when a developer promised that they’ll support the PC version but gave us the opposite end result. Promising they’ll bring back dedicated servers is a moot point if they forget that a PC works best if the trinity of CPU, GPU and RAM are fully utilized. Besides BFBC2 have spoiled me with it’s fully destructible environment.
I’m saving up money to build a new PC to as my first Windows 7 rig. All because of Battlefield 3 won’t support XP. DICE promised the PC version will be “special”. Let’s hope they are true to their words. I have been screwed by Microsoft when they pulled Alan Wake from the PC, after I spent a year in building a Vista PC. As a result I didn’t buy Vista when it was launched and maybe I should thank M’soft for not letting me suffer through it.
