    I can't wait to give the new content a workout over live. Annex sounds like it might be quite fun. :)

    That really sucks!

    I really look down on companies that do this, which sadly are now most of them, you can't expect any one to release anything (not even one map or a friggin texture) for free, as if the 60$ we pay for the game aren't enough, if a simple texture is worth 5$ (i'm talking about the horse armor add on for Oblivion just to put an example) then games should be worth thousands of dollars :eek:

    And then corporations complain of software piracy!

    But worse than that I think are the idiots who actually pay for the content.

    Sorry for jumping in but I totally see your point but then again we are talking about M$. :eek: But I have to admit... this is great PR/Spin on M$'s front. That's the Left Hand slapping the consumer and saying, "I don't want to but my brain is making me slap you..." Customer being slapped, "Oh O.K. I won't blame you Left Hand but I am sure angry with your Brain."

    I couldn't weapons slide. So that's good for most (I like that "glitch" and I don't mind it when the other team uses it). Others in-game were saying how other glitches had been fixed (specifically the chainsaw) so that is good. I don't know how to do any of those but I hate when I get killed that way.

    Annex is interesting. Only played it for about 20 minutes but it looked exciting. More frustrating, though, if the teams are unfair than in Warzone/Execution because you die maybe 30-40 times instead of just 10 times.

    You cling to everything now when you run. That sucks. Not sure why they changed it either, but I wouldn't be running anywhere now.

    The clinging thing was supposed to get better, not worse....and it's a lot worse now. Annex reminds me of Halo 2; random time respawning in random places and dieing a lot if you're outnumbered. That's something I didn't like about Halo 2 and I doubt I'll ever play it on GoW unless we have 8 people that will stick around for awhile......then it could be fun.

    "Adjusted Roadie Run: Reduced frequency of accidently grabbing cover while running" ; which apparently they did the opposite to :)

    The boomshot is definitely better now. It used to be that you either blew someone up or you shot right through them and nothing happened. Now you can do some damage and down them if you don't hit them directly.

    This topic probably has been done to death... but I want bots. I have broadbad, and I can afford to get Live Gold, I just don't want to. Human players are a lot more fun, sure, but a) there are a lot of immature annoying ones, and b) I want to be able to just leave a match if I want. If I do this in a real game, I make people mad, which is understandable. I think I'd have a lot more fun with an intelligent bot team. This could also pad numbers for those smaller games.
