Also having the iTunes duplicate issue. Pretty fucking annoying since opening the URL of the old feed in a browser redirects to the new one and looks fine. I guess a HTTP redirect is too complicated for iTunes. I wouldn't mind too much if I could find a way to edit the goddamn URL in any of the files iTunes has on my PC but that would be too easy. The only "solutions" I found on the web were for those publishing the podcasts, like this one: http://www.ehow.com/how_12143181_modify-podcast-already-itunes.html
Looks like it needs some new XML tags, though it wouldn't surprise me if they were already there and it just didn't work.
It does look pretty dumb and awkward. I really can't think of a game where I'd benefit from it. I suppose stuff like voice commands/binds? But then again if the game has something like Battlefield's "comm-rose" that's just a keypress away. If you wanted something more there's always mice with programmable buttons which have been around for years.
Of course this already has almost $28k because it's a stupid idea on Kickstarter. That and the ~pro esports gamer bro~ market is so gullible and easy to profit from I guess.
Lots of people are having issues with the PC version but I've had none. Using an i5 email@example.com and a 6970 the game autodetected (I'm guessing) the optimal config and put everything on high for me. Game looks great and runs smoothly. Reading stuff about people having problems and asking if their PC will run it makes me wonder why they don't bother putting out demos any more. Or at least a benchmark tool or something. Would be infinitely helpful. I guess because Ubisoft don't really care about PC? Is there a demo of any sort on XBLA/PSN?
If you're unsure about your PC specs I'd just go with 360. I can't imagine any fun being taken out of the game because of lower res textures and a slightly lower framerate. If you're the type of person who can't enjoy a game because "uuuuugh they're only rendering this in 630p not true 720p omg" you might want to re-evaluate your life or something.
Yeah, I know, that sounds like it came right out of the "WARNING: DON'T ___" section in instruction booklets, but those are not without any truth.
Those things say that for good reason. I used to scoff at them when I was younger but not so much now. Remember to take regular breaks, even if it's just to get up and empty your bladder and have a stretch. I can't legally drive because my eyes are so damaged from countless hours in front of CRTs. Breaks are your friend. Ain't no shame in doing a mission at a time or whatever.
Also I've found certain games do different things to me. My eyes take a while to adjust but if I play anything for more than 2hrs continuously it's headache time.
If you're buying it you are supporting everything that is wrong with games. Did that help? I assume you'd be buying it only for multiplayer because the campaigns in these games are pointless. The MP too, though. It's the same old shit. Do you want the same old shit? Ask yourself that.
Positives? COD games are region free and cost $15 on Russian sites if you have a PC. Also if this is a Treyarch game all the rank hacks, aimbots & wallhacks that work in the IW games won't work.
