Call of Duty 4 screens/video/demo

You know, its been a long time since a REALLY good fps game came out. The last GOOD Call of Duty game was the first one. Two and three were SHIT on a stick. But this game... after you play the demo, you know it. You know this is it. Game is fucking off the chart. And the awesome thing? The demo doesnt even have full detail. Oh sure its higher then what the 360 could do LOOLOLOLOL.

http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/34...-Now-Available

The first link is a 20min walkthru, the second is the demo which hits at 1.37gigs. The unreal 3 engine is fuck awesome. Funny how everyone is tossing out games using the Unreal3 engine without a problem, yet Too Human developers are crying like a bunch of girls who got caught by their parents with their panties around their ankles behind stage at a rock concert.

Jericho is a totally different game. So not fair mentioning it. But this really is an awesome game. And for multiplayer it'll be better on PC. After all, everyones playing halo 3 on xbox. Cause thats all they know.

it is fair to mention it IMO as it was all style and ZERO substance IMO, a game that will be used to show of a flash PC game to people, but the demo was as dull as dish water for me, and typical of what i hate about FPS games ..

but this has both style and substance by the bucket load, and a 100% PC buy for me as no one i know around my is getting it sadly, but more fool them .

I get really shitty performance and when I map the controls to the num-pad it fucks up and maps them to the part along the top. Not impressed. Not that it is a big deal, I'm sure it will require numerous patches and mods before I bother with it, like CoD1&2.

Why are you using the num-pad for. And the demo is very stable and beyond awesome. CoD2, all the mods in the world wouldnt help it from NOT being a POS.

It runs like shit. Timeshift and UT3 demos are butter smooth in comparison (all settings on high...detail settings are only on medium for the CoD4 demo).

Probably all the smoke effects and everything. VOLUMETRIC crap killing your system. Not the games fault. You just need a better video card. You know where the shop is. GOGOGOGOGO!

Nah, I just got a video card earlier in the year. I'll wait until the new DX10 cards drop in price next years. Pick one up some time after Far Cry 2 is released.

The number pad doesnt have enough keys around it for certain stuff. Why dont you get a seperate thing? Like this for example..



Plug it into the usb slot and use that on your desk. My friends swear by it. It even has a version on newegg for like $4 more and it comes with Counterstrike Source. Otherwise you could try this one, its a proper seperate one made for left handers specifically.



Heres a couple reviews

http://www.nvnews.net/reviews/zboard_fang/

Heres what the configuration screen looks like which is pretty cool




The thing goes for around $35 I think. Fairly easy to find. Maybe if its in a store nearby you could give it a test and see what you think of it. But I think either of these options would be MUCH better then using the number pad.
