Yep, it's ridiculous.
Whoever is hosting gets a 0 ping advantage, and everyone else is dependent on his connection speeds.
Also there is no lean buttons, come on!
No Console Command.
This seems like trivial stuff to complain about, but it makes it very hard to play with groups of people(Clans) and to do matches and such. They basically ported the game they made for the x360 and sold it on the pc with minimal change as possible. This was used strictly as a cash cow for them.
Plus people can't modify the game/servers, which is very annoying. I hate having people sprinting around with grenade launchers. kajsdhjsahdsaj
It's really not even that good of a game. It's basically MW1 with a big DLC.
I'm waiting to see how the MoH is going to look like.
Yup, and on top of that, PC guys have to worry about people who like to hack/cheat. i.e Aimbots etc.
So if your in a server and doing really well, someone with a cheat can come in and win the game. So you just wasted your time. And if you LEAVE the game because you find out someone is cheating, that counts as a loss does it not? I'm not sure as I don't play the PC version but that's what I've heard.
At least with your own server you can regulate that and have your server set up to detect those cheats and have them banned etc.
The only reason I am familiar with this stuff is because back in the day I use to play UT99 on PC and our clan had our own dedicated servers that we all paid for. We all had Kick/Ban commands set up on our keyboards for this purpose. It was very useful.
get a console?
i hated the idea at first, being a huge counterstrike guy, but once i got used to the PS3, i love it now. rarely use my pc for gaming anymore.
Counterstrike Source was another game I played on PC.
And it is always hard to change. The last console I owned before my 360 was a Super Nintendo. The only reason I even got into XBox 360 was because I won mine at work during a Xmas drawing. Once I signed up for LIVE, and got use to the controller, I love it. I couldn't imagine going back to PC now. And I was a hardcore PC gamer.
Mayo, you can buy a brand new standard XBox 360 for 200 bucks. If that's too much you could even go on Craigslist and find them for real cheap. Buy one and give it a shot. You will eventually become used to the controller and find that you will become just as accustomed to it as using WSAD and the mouse.
