Morning Discussion

By Xav de Matos, Nov 15, 2010 5:00am PST I've been playing a lot of Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer on PC and on the Xbox 360 and I find that I'm a lot better on PC. The obvious call would be because aiming and firing is so much smoother on PC with a mouse and keyboard, but I've actually been testing out the PC version with a controller. Still, I'm better on PC. (I'm not great on either platform, but I'm not terrible either.)

I mentioned it briefly in our PC-focused article last week but I think that the clarity afforded by the better graphics are definitely a factor in my play. I can spot enemies a lot better on PC whereas they looked washed out on console--even though I'm using the same 1080p monitor for both versions.

I tend to get pretty addicted to the multiplayer components of games as soon as they come out but stop playing them entirely a week or two post-launch: Halo Reach, Medal of Honor, and Modern Warfare 2 suffered the same fate when I got them.

We'll have to see if I return to the game this week. I wonder if playing it in 3D would change the experience?

    Shack Career Advice

    So I'm going to be leaving my company at the end of the year to go back to school. I have been living in Japan, but I am American. Anyway, I recently got an email from my boss outlining some things that he wanted me to prepare before I leave and at the end he asked me to give him my proposal for a "Settlement Package" (he used the quotes, I'm just repeating them). It was my decision to leave to go back to school and I gave him about 4 months notice. I didn't really think that I was going to get anything when I leave, but I guess he has something in mind. Anyway, since he's asked me for my proposal I need to ask for something. I don't want to be so low that I miss out, and I don't want to ask for so much that he thinks I'm being ridiculous. Has anyone gone through this before?
