Morning Discussion

A little later today we're going to have some quick impressions of the final, PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops in 3D. On Monday, we're doing a Kill/Death Ratio comparison piece where we pit 2D versus 3D. I'm interested to see if the tech will improve my gameplay.

There's no doubt that Call of Duty: Black Ops is a big game--according to sales it's one of the biggest single titles in entertainment history. But, who really cares about all that? I only bought one copy. The point, when I pitched these features, was to focus on specific concepts of the game. Was the PC version solid? We examined that. Are new players prepared for online play? We handled that yesterday.

On the other side of the coin, I just want to do some content specific to the PC platform--and Call of Duty: Black Ops (whether you agree or not) is the biggest PC game out at the moment. The 3D thing is interesting for a few reasons, primarily because PC gamers are wondering what the fuss is about. The tech has existed on PC for a while. But, does the 3D push from developers on consoles make the experience better overall? We'll have to wait and see.

If there's a game you want me to compare Black Ops' 3D experience to, let me know.
