post #4441 of 4670
Was going to start a new thread but figured the guys in this thread might be the only ones to care... Respawn has trademarked a name for their new game:

Who is Respawn?

Nevermind. The IW guys who left.

So far the pace of a match on the highrise map seems to be the most fun. Magma is really the only one that feels fresh to me. Obviously the highrise thing has been done with MW2 and MW3 and Encore mostly feels like a re-tooled Stadium to me. I know I've said this too many times but I can't believe that this late in the evolution of COD we have not seen a map based on Freemont St/Vegas or some kind of Halloween/horror haunt theme... even a complex indoor/outdoor aquarium could be cool. I'm sure there are tons of ideas out there and while I like the new maps ok so far Maga is really the only one that that comes off as an attempt to do something unique and different.

Make that the IW 'guy' that left... Jason West left shortly after founding the company so it's just Vince Zampella now along with much of the crew from the former IW. Of course, at this point, I'd take a game coded by Zampella's long lost schizophrenic half sister over any of the crap 3arc or the IW/sledgehammer/raven Frankenstein monster have been shoveling at us...

Assuming of course they would not be obligated to have the same revenge spawn and lagcomp crap that Activision could be dictating.

I thought a map in a sex toy shop might be fun. Think of all the fun you had shooting balls at the basket on raid and apply that to my idea and the result is endless, epic win.

Cod 4 and mw2 both had lag comp and mw2 had a system of revenge spawn in FFA... Those games just weren't (as) broken as the rest.

If you haven't tried this then I would highly recommend you create a class with Spas-12 and go into any game. There is something about that gun I just can't explain it but it is so sweet and satisfying to kill people with it. From the the sound and animation to the distance it can kill is just awesome.

Here is a sample class setup I use:

Marathon Pro
Lightweight Pro
Steady Aim Pro/Ninja Pro
Spas-12 with Extended Mag
Semtex/C4
Stun Grenade

Above mentioned = Endless fun

Are you going to get on MW2? I was on it the other night when you said you were going to play BO or MW2 but you weren't on so I switched to BO2 to pay with some of the AVS crew.

I know... frown.gif

I'm in the process of moving and my girlfriend is out if town and I ended up running out to drop off some stuff and she asked me if I could go check on the horses... I'm planning jumping on tonight though (cry wolf, right?).

Btw, jitu: marathon pro, stopping power pro and ninja pro. Primary: silenced ump .45. Secondary: spaz 12 with grip. Throwing knife or Semtex for extra embarrassment.

This is the class I use to sneak in, cause havoc, and sneak out to call in my streaks. Love me some mw2!

My kids play the Zombie game, but I was shocked to hear all the bad words going off left and right. It didn't seem to be that bad before. Is there any way in the options to turn off all the cussing ? Seems like so much unnecessary swearing that kids don't need to be exposed to. (yes, I know it's an M rated game that kids shouldn't be playing) Still, they have to know that half their audience (if not more), is kids, and they should have an option to turn off all the damn swearing.


We aren't letting them play Zombies anymore, and they're really upset about it, but the swearing is just too frequent. It would be one thing if you heard it every couple of minutes, instead of every couple of seconds.

I'm not talking about cussing from other players on their headsets. We have their settings set up where they can only do in-game chat with people on their friends list, and we keep track of the people on their friends list.

It's the swearing from the NPC's in the game. The zombie mode has always had this, but it seems like the newest map pack that just came out, is much worse than previous maps in this regard. Gears of War 2 had an option to turn off extreme gore and bad language, and I wish other games offered this feature.

Probably not exactly what you want but what if you go into the COD audio settings and turn down the voice setting. Forget if that is the exact name of the volume slider. I know there is one that lowers the voice of the announcer in multiplayer.

You can disable it on "Local" if you disable graphic content as Steve said. But as soon as you go on XBL for multiplayer Zombies, you get unfiltered dialogue. Only way to stop it, is to turn down the volume. frown.gif

post #4465 of 4670
I think he was talking about the characters in the game-- the actors playing them are cussing constantly from what I hear.

Btw, played some mw2 last night. Some observations:

1. Game is hacked to ****. Several games I entered had multiple choppers and kills were awarding 40K per. What a travesty. How activision can still charge for these games is beyond me.

2. Hit detection is as good as I remember it being.

3. Lag, or at least gameplay affecting lag is pretty much non- existent and when it happens it seems to affect everyone equally. (More on this later)

4. Snipers are more ridiculous than I remember but are balanced by crazy powerful ARs and shotgun secondaries.

5. Commando lunges are farther than I ever remember them being. It's a god damn insta-gib perk!

6. Having host isn't a bad thing and, thus, host migrations don't happen every 10 seconds. Host advantage is in full effect though. Example: 3 games in a row I was getting dominated by a single player. I couldn't kill this guy and just thought he was REALLY good. After watching a couple kill cams I began to suspect he had a bit of an advantage on me so I started playing off him instead of being the aggressor. Long story short-- he quits after the 3rd round and the scores reset! Son of a bitch had host!! Next match: I have host. Now, having host isn't my favorite-- yes, you get some incredible bailouts and your shot seems to auto target but it's countered by the fact that the frame rate absolutely chugs when the air support starts showing up and the '2-bar-heroes' skipping around the map are harder to hit. Overall, having host is neither god mode nor a death sentence and, as such, doesn't promote the constant host rage quitting that plagues ever game black ops and after.

Yeah, I told my kids that they would have to play it with the volume off, but my son was saying that it's almost impossible to play it that way, because you have no idea which direction the zombies are coming without having the sound of them coming.


I really hope with the next-gen consoles coming up, that maybe Sony and Microsoft will think of some type of system wide way of handling curse words and blood, and allowing for some way for that to be toned down. They would have to require developers to flag all the profanities in some way in which the system could automatically turn those voices off if a parent wants to set it up that way. It's too bad that games like Gears of War 2 don't get more credit for having that kind of feature. There are so many games that I'd love to let my kids play if only I could remove just a a few of the more violent scenes and graphic language. Basically, if every Mature game had a Gears of War 2 mode automatically baked in at the system level.

I know it's asking a lot, but I'm sure there are tons of other parents that would appreciate the effort. I know that most people will say, "What the heck are you doing letting your kids play these games anyways?" My first response to that is, "Do you have kids?". Usually it's people without kids, thinking that I'm a horrible parent for letting my kids play such things. The thing is, these games are really just a modern day version of playing "cowboys and Indians" or "cops and robbers". It's almost like a sport, or playing tag. I would only allow them to play Teen games, if only there were actually some decent teen shooters, but there really isn't. All their friends play these games, and their parents don't pay it any mind. We held out for a long time, not allowing them to play any Mature game but Halo. (Halo doesn't seem to have as much blood and cursing as most of the other M rated games). Unfortunately for my kids, all of their friends stopped playing Halo. They had nobody to play with. All their friends moved over to COD. I sat down with them, and watched them play the multiplayer to see just how bad it is, and it's not the kind of thing that I would prefer them to be playing, but it's not exactly the worst thing in the world either. I don't like the violence and blood, but my kids understand that it's just a game and it's all fake. As long as they keep their grades up, I allow them to play, but it's just all this cussing that it going on in the zombies game is a bit on the extreme side. I just wish there was a way to tone it down a bit.

It's satisfying to hear the camping noob tubers complain about me running around with my spas-12 and killing them. That's exactly how my night ended and now I can sleep with a smile on my face biggrin.gif

Let me also add Rambo and Commando. However, I DO go on a killing spree in CoD. Just last night, I went 23-0 in Derail....it was a bloodbath and apparently white blood that got mixed in with snow. biggrin.gif
