Hi. Cis-male identifying as homosexual (currently) reporting in. I play Pokemon go in local restrooms in support of homeless post-op transgendered teens. I was wondering if this Macy's guy would play infinite warfare with me. Thanks.

While I'll still buy it (for CoD4), I genuinely might skip the multiplayer for Titanfall 2's. I'm getting really, really tired of CoD's consistently broken matchmaking... and their de-emphasis on cover penetration in this last go-around; which has always been one of my favourite aspects of the franchise.

I want some new bugs to bitch about. And a new(er) game engine to make fun of.

I hadn't realized from the nightly sessions that you were displeased with the lack of cover penetration (I'm chacha)

Really? I've been complaining about it since launch.

I don't know if the devs are just missing various bits around the map, but there's a lot of spots in areas under constant fire that- visually speaking, should allow my future bullets to punch right through.

I guess I should have added a slash s at the end of that.

Having never played a cod beta, how does it work? Is everything unlocked immediately or do you have to level grind?

So can we talk about how this game kind of plays and feels lovely? The graphic design of it is pretty much terrible and feels like something that came out a decade or more ago and the play is pretty much hardcore mode. I'm kind of hating it right now.

Why were you charged $129 for that. Are those Australian moon dollars or something? I thought it was $100 usd.

If I'm not mistaken the CEO of Activision said those maps would be added free of charge at CoD XP.

I'm pretty sure you're right. I remember them saying they wouldn't be ready for launch but that they would be included. Besides, dlc 1 for iw won't be ready until February I'm sure.

Oh man are we finally going to get DLC that's actually worth the price content wise?

Assuming of course they are going to be adding in new guns,new maps for IW,possibly more of the COD 4 maps for Remaster, on top whatever they are going to do with Zombies?

Sounds like a lot of content for 15 at least.

Uh...what? I was agreeing with Javes that I remember hearing something about the remaining cod4 maps being free for everyone who owns mwr. The second part was to say that they likely wouldn't pull a "pay-for" since the first dlc for infinite warfare won't be released until February and the remaining cod4 maps are being released next month.

But regardless, the dlc will assuredly not be worth the money. Blops didn't add guns. It was just 1 map for zombies and 4 maps (mostly not great maps at that) for mp.

My copy is out for delivery as of 5:10AM. So I should have it in my grubby mitts somewhere in the vicinity of 7:45P if the USPS keeps with it's delivery tradition at my new place. So by the time everything downloads and installs I should be ready to go by Sunday. PSN is AhChaChaChaCha if you don't have me on your list. I doubt I'll even play IW this weekend since the servers are likely to be hosed. I'm all over MWR though.

Today I had a much better experience with lag, I was able to win gunfights and had a pretty good time.

Now I'm at a point, however, where I don't know if I won because the fight was fair, or because the lag advantaged me and the other team had to deal with terrible delays/instant deaths.

I'm wondering the same thing. Most of the games I played with you today went fine and I was positive. But there were a couple when I'd shoot first and die first. I hope they get it consistent for everyone soon.

I wish I understood the netcode in this game. It's so unbelievably inconsistent. Earlier today I hopped on and did pretty well. Most matches were 1.0 - 2.0ish. Then this evening I couldn't kill anyone and was averaging between 0.4 and 0.6 every game. I just hopped on and played three matches and got 2.0 - 3.0 in all of them. According to Reddit I'm not the only one experiencing this.

Ah, launch weekends...

It's funny because I have those types of problems in core, but hc is consistently better for me connection wise. The last couple matches last night I started having that issue, but the 20+ I'd played prior didn't have those problems and I was doing well. *shrug*

I made the qos updates posted earlier in this thread and things now seem more consistent. Still not perfect, but I haven't had as many aggravating deaths in a match. I've been playing mostly hardcore and my shots are registering how I feel they should.

Anyone playing this tire fire right now? I'm done with adulting for the day.

I'm definitely not paying another cent toward this game, despite the qos settings helping substantially with the game. Oh and getting the raw benediction out of a crate. That gun owns.

What are the settings that help? Fired it up last night and the shitfuck connection had me going like 8-24 because I could not kill fuckall. I enjoy this when it works, I just want it to work more often.

I did a number of speed tests using that tool posted a couple pages ago and then averaged those out and took 90% of the values. Then I enabled QoS on my router (quality of service) and put the calculated numbers in. I've been way more consistent with this trash heap since and regularly go positive as a result. The number of bullshit deaths is minimal in comparison and I believe Orbital and Javes can attest that I'm bitching far less the last couple days. :-)

I think I'm done with this garbage heap. Tonight everything went back to being exactly like it was before the qos updates I made. No game is worth constant futzing around with a router just to get it to work. gently caress that. Fix the damned net code, iw.

Hi folks. My house was broken into today and my PlayStation was stolen (along with my Xbox). Feel free to send as many offensive messages to me as possible. I'm sure there's a way to get it recovered. They're already trying to change the password on, which I'm getting messages on my phone saying right now. So spam AhChaChaChaCha with tons of dick pics and gay sex pics. Seriously. gently caress those people.
