More Bad News for Modern Warfare 2

Category: Gaming
Posted: 04:07PM

PC gamers already had enough to be mad about with Modern Warfare 2 and the lack of dedicated servers, but it appears to be worse. An online chat with Infinity Ward representatives revealed that gamers may have more to gripe about. The maximum number of players per game will be set at 18, and the ability to lean has also been removed. Both of these were done to prevent game balance from being ruined. Also removed from this game is the ability to use console commands to modify game settings, or even record your gameplay. In the new matchmaking system, users also won't be able to kick problem users or those that are hacking. In addition, there is a five second delay any time the host needs to change. The most interesting aspect in my opinion is that Infinity Ward admitted that it is basically a direct port from the console. The lone exception is that “PC has custom stuff like mouse control, text chat in game, and graphics settings.” Its not all bad PC gamers, at least you can still use a mouse.

wow revolutionary stuff on the pc. the ability to use a mouse and change graphics settings. 3 cheers for IW for taking a good game and making a very poor, very commercialized sequel. heck i would have preferred if they just copied and pasted the first modern warfare and given us a new single player storyline and new maps. thanks infinity ward you've made up my mind not to buy it. you watch it will break sales records on every platform except PC

The only situation that this should be happening in is if they're planning cross-platform play.
