I find this a bit meh. The essence of the original CoD games is lost now :( I'm not gonna deny but I know I'll play it but I just don't think it'll be that great. Here's what I'm really looking forward to:

Interesting nice find Nando. I thought there wasn't going to be a sequel so that's cool. Nothing Widezu lives up to its previous accomplishments... in games. Not sure theres anything related to Black OPS in this sequel at all... so you might as well consider it a completely different game.

Yeah i am excited for Black Ops 2 and it's interesting to see the storyline entailing with what has been going on with the drones that having been flying in the cities skies to in relation the game and the present, and i am happy that have been working on better graphics, and hopefully like Treyarch has said that they have been working on a longer and more better single player campaign which is something i really look forward for! The COD series has always been for me just something to play for a short time for a quick 10 hour or so fps campaign. I normally never play online barely just have been more of an online player, Now Medal of Honor Warfighter i am so looking forward to playing when it comes out soon enough! I am very happy to try it out

I'm actually excited about this one. Loved BO, but wasn't interested in MW2, 3 or WaW games. I love the idea of a slightly futuristic COD. Origin & Battlelog really ruined BF3 for me.

This is what you get from Activision and Treyarch for 70$: :mad:

Directlink

On triplescreen systems the third screen on the right stays black.:stupid: Activision/Treyarch have the issue not even on their known issues thread.:anonymous:

The aspect ratio is also totally screwed, but this is a known issue with this "new" graphics engine.

Thanks to the widescreenfixer developed by Dopefish the aspect ratio can already be adjusted:

Directlink

config files, known from previous Call of Duty parts, were also removed:76:

Thats screwy. Its good there are third parties that make such mods for games like this. That wide screen app is great. Its a shame companies like this don't look into such issues more thorough. I may try it out myself in anycase.

This is a game game! I still like BL:OP2 a little better, I feel like they're just very different games. But I think as a game (without comparing it to BL:OP2) it's extremely well put together. And the graphics are sick on the right computer.

Care Package fail on Nuketown 2025 xD

I've partially unlocked the special Diamond Weapons Camo in Black Ops 2, it just looks awesome

Meanwhile, Nvidia Surround works using Flawless Widescreen App or Widescreen Fixer. A multi-monitor setup is still a big advantage in Black Ops 2, because the adjustable FOV is limited to the range of 65-90 degrees. :D

After the first patches the game SP or MP is still pretty buggy (game crashes, kicked from MP game,...), hope the devs will provide some more fixes and there is still no Nuketown 2025 mode :(

      I would like to get a Blu Ray player eventually and I'm wondering how the PS4 and Xbox One compare as a Blu Ray player to a similarly priced dedicated Blu Ray Player. I understand that you're paying for more than just a Blu Ray player when you get a PS4 or Xbox One but how do the game consoles compare to a similarly priced Blu Ray Player? I would bet that a Blu Ray player that costs more than a PS4 or Xbox One plays Blu Ray much better but how would a Blu Ray player that costs $300-$450 compare against the game console that plays Blu Ray discs? Thank you.

      Hi there,
       
      just a short thread to give you some inspirations. My setup consists of:
       
      Macbook Pro Retina 15" Late 2013 OSX + Windows 10
      EVGA GeForce GTX 960 Superclocked ACX 2
      Akitio Thunder2 PCIe Box
      Dell-DA2 PSU
      Dell U2311H Display 
      Samsung TV and Onkyo Receiver
      Steam Link
      XBOX One Controller / XBOX 360 Controller
      Apple Thunderbolt Gigabit-Ethernet Adapter
       
      I spend almost 30€ on Adapters and Cables, Crimps etc just to find out that it does not work well and it does not take much to get a sleek and simple design. You just have to be brave enough and willing to cut the Dell PSU
       

       
      The cut Dell-PSU. White is 12V, black GND, blue needs to be shorted against GND, red is not required and can be cut or isolated. I don't know whats that blank is for, so I just cut it. There is some additional cable from 1x 12V and 1x GND to be connected to the Akitio's Power Supply, I don't use the Barrel-Plug anymore. 
       

       
      I drilled a hole (about 10mm width) right above the Power Connection. Intelligent people put the cable through the housing first, other (like me) have to force it
       
       
       

       
      Cables go under the board, there is about 1 cm of free space. Now it's time to solder the boards power supply. (No pictured) 
       
       
       

       
      The tiny pins can be bought at Ebay ("PCI-E Pins"/ "PSU Power Connector Pins"). There are also "Wire End Sleeves"with crimp-able necks available which might work as well but I didn't try them. You might give them a try too
       
       
       
      .
       
      Doesn't look good but fits well. I use the lower plastic parts of one PCI-E 8 Pin Power Adapter to make the Pins fit in there, otherwise they would slip out the plug. 
       
       
       

       
      Holes drilled for better cooling. The front Fan is still connected and blows air into the housing. The GPU Fan presses it out through the selfmade holes.
       
       
       

       
      Final and simple Setup, I'am streaming the games over network to my Steam Link. I still need to try if I can connect the TB-Ethernet Adapter to the back of the Akito.
       
       
       
      best regards 
      kos

      Even as Microsoft's newest CEO Satya Nadella tries to steer the company back into relevance by attempting to unify Microsoft notebook, desktop, tablet and smartphone platforms under the "One Microsoft" structure devised by his predecessor Steve Ballmer, most consumers and developers don't seem to care and the company appears destined to fall into obscurity.
       
      While it currently dominates the desktop market, it's newest and greatest hope in achieving the "One Microsoft" vision is Windows 10 and at the end of 2015, it barely had climbed to 10% share despite Microsoft's strong marketing push by giving it away for free. In fact, Windows 7 still retains 55% of the desktop OS market with consumers and developers alike perfectly content to stay where they are. 
       
      According to Forbes, Microsoft is now changing tactics by attempting to scare consumers into upgrading to Windows 10 by telling them Windows 7 has potentially serious security risks and hardware compatibility issues. In speaking to Windows Weekly, Microsoft Marketing chief Chris Capossela said that users who continue on with Windows 7 do so "at your own risk, at your own peril". Forbes Gordon Kelly notes that Microsoft's statements about Windows 7 amount to "complete rubbish" as Windows 7 will be supported until 2020 and with its greater market share vs Windows 10, it is guaranteed to receive more developer attention--which includes security patches and driver updates. Microsoft's motives are fairly transparent as it has a stated goal of one billion devices running Windows 10 within 2-3 years of it's release and with Windows 10 adoption seemingly faltering, they are getting desperate. 
       
      To make things worse, Vox has an article with a very interesting graph created by Joshua Kunst which illustrates Microsoft losing significant ground among developers since 2008. He made the graph by tracking popular tags on Stack Overflow, a popular forum where many developers hang out and answer programming questions. 
       

       
      Looking at this chart, going back to 2008 when Stack Overflow was founded, it becomes clear that Microsoft backed programming languages and applications have declined: C#, .NET, ASP.NET, SQL all lost ground, yet competing alternatives such as PHP, MYSQL, JavaScript gained significantly. JavaScript owes part of its rise thanks to Android which uses it as the main language for Android apps. 
       
      In the gaming market, Xbox One started off with a faulty strategy of attempting to force users into purchasing their Kinect device while their competitor Sony produced a more powerful system that did not have similar bundling restrictions. Microsoft eventually backed off but it seems to be too late as Sony's PS4 now holds a dominant lead over Xbox One despite Microsoft's best efforts.

      So will Microsoft be able to turn around its misfortunes? Maybe if Windows 10 has a drastic turn around in 2016 with more developers getting on board, it is possible but as of right now, the future doesn't seem too bright.

      PlayStation AIO Box
      Hey all
      Some weeks ago I ordered a CronusMAX USB-stick to be able to play my console games with keyboard and mouse, the stick has far more capabilities. Some days ago it arrived and I did some initial testing, I'll write a review in the next weeks, while testing I got pretty annoyed by all the cable chaos the setup come with. The main reason is because you need to run the software on a Windows or MacOSX OS respectively you need a PC running at the same time to be able to play with keyboard and mouse.
      So I came up with the idea to build a box with all needed components packed into it. The goal would be to that one has to connect the power (maybe internet connection too) and will be immediately ready to game. I started to design some first basic models of a box. I found some cool PlayStation CAD models on GrabCAD, this saved a lot of time and helps to get a better idea on how it will finally look.
      Meanwhile the version number has reached the 5th level and it looks like this:




      Box materials:
      Acrylicglass or wood
      Components:
      PlayStation 4 and accessoires
      PlayStation 3 and accessoires
      Zotac ZBOX/Intel Nuc/other nano PC
      AOC i2269VWM monitor
      1x120mm + 2x60mm fan
      1xRJ45 Splitter (1 Female to 3 Female)
      2xHDMI Splitter (Male to 2xFemale)
      2xHDMI (Male to Female)
      2xHDMI Cable
      1xDP Cable
      1xUSB2.0 Y-Cable
      The project is still in development and for now it's just a study. But I'm pretty determined to build this PlayStation AIO Box.
      Tell me what you think about this project and feel free to give any advice on doing something differently.
