A friend of mine has a Wii and we were playing tennis on Wii sports. When he served he hit a few small lamps that were hanging from the ceiling. But a TV like that is much worse.

Which system are you playing it on? If it's 360, install it to your harddrive. Have you downloaded the patch? Is your console's operating system up to date?

I've put in 20+ hours on 360, and it's only froze on me once (which is less than what I experienced with Fallout 3). Some of the other bugs have me far more concerned than freezes do, as they could potentially ruin your game or save files, which is why I haven't played much lately. Waiting on the next round of patches. The bugs seem to happen randomly though. Some, like yourself, have experienced a ton. Then there are others who haven't had anything more than a freeze or two. It's definitely strange.

I purchased Kinect on a whim, and it's considerably better than I ever expected. Sorta shocked how much I liked it to be honest. Motion controls novelty usually wears off pretty quickly for me, but I had an incredibly fun time. I look forward to elbowing my friends in the face "accidentally" while playing.

YouTube - Xbox Kinect FAIL!!!

I think the freezing may be down to our PS3.. which played well this morning (I just learned how to fleece everyone in Caravan galdangit) but now won't read any game discs, blu rays or DVD's. What a bummer.

Prior to that happening I had one funny glitch where it looked like a hand was fapping a frag mine. Yes, I installed the patch

New Vegas is a wasteland of bugs... see what I did there?

I like it but it's annoying when I can't pick up special weapons laying there right in front of me or when I difuse a bomb in time but it blows up anyhow

Unfortunately, the PS3 version has reported far more issues than 360. I'm still not sure how I've hardly seen any issues what so ever. Save often, I guess.

PS - Hi Elfa, you scoundrel.

I'm definitely considering it for both. I'll pick it up for 360 first, but if I'm enjoying, I may get it for both so we can play as well.

Infinity Ward essentially no longer exists, so there's no reason to compare any longer. I personally liked World at War FAAAAAAARRRRRR more than Modern Warfare 2, so I have no worries what so ever. Particularly since Treyarch has worked so hard to fix all the absolute shit that Infinity Ward threw into the last game, so that's nice.

well... the single player stories don't really matter to me. i just liked infinity ward's multiplayer, as subtle as the differences may be, better for whatever reason.

and yes, i know they don't exist anymore.

Black Ops looks a lot better than World At War. I'm probably buying it Wednesday.

I was specifically talking about the shit they put into mutliplayer. But yes, you're right, Modern Warfare 2's campaign was atrocious. It's unfortunate Infinity Ward's worst game was their last, but oh wellz.

Kill streaks that add on top of each other, far too powerful perks that essentially everyone ended up using, a massive amount of bugs and glitches in the first two months, dual wielding secondary weapons that are better than any primary weapon in the game, bunny hopping sprinters running around the map with knives only, etc, etc, etc.

I quite like the idea of the killstreaks adding up. It makes it all the more exciting when I finally get a chopper gunner.
I do hate the sprinters though. That's the worst shit ever.
You're able to dive in Black Ops, right? I wonder how that will end of working out.

So who got Black Ops today? I wandered down the street and got it after work. I've only done multiplayer and its a lot of fun. Probably take some getting used to the maps and stuff though. One question: Anyone find the framerate choppy? One of the good things about MW was how smooth it played. I really hope they're able to patch it, because I find that a bit disappointing
