    I've abandoned my morals. :(

    After having about a month or so without playing a game or two on the PC, I was suddenly back in the mood for some classic FPS action and decided to reinstall COD:MW on the off chance a server or two was kicking around on the net. Turns out there are loads of them about so I spent the past week remembering how good MW was. I even had my profile backed up so continued from lvl 48 and hit 55 a few days ago (golden degal, awww yea!).

    When MW2 was announced, and it came to light that there would be no dedicated servers for the PC edition, and after hearing reports from people who bought it that it became rather "console like", I wiped my hands of the entire series vowing never to buy it again. I was glad I did, especially as the reports for Black Ops, and then MW3 were 'it's all the same old same old stuff'.

    Anyhoo, I replayed the campaign of MW and just remembered how good the single player games in COD really are and wondered if MW2 was worth it jst for single player. Before I knew what was happening, I had purchased MW2 in Steam and was giving the SP game a good seeing to. Seriously good stuff so far, really intense! After a hour or so, I even went as far as to test the waters with the multi-play mode. Worryingly, I found it rather fun, and despite the absence of dedicated servers, I had no lag at all. The only annoyance was mid game, everything froze and COD had to find a new host and transfer everyone over to it. 10 seconds later and everything resumed where it left off. maybe I will have to reconsider my stance for Black-ops/MW3...

    Black Ops is ace online. All this dedicated server jive was just the 1337 getting in a whinge, it works fine.

    Speaking of going back in time, you can still play Counter-Strike happily against '0000s of users and it's as good as it ever was.

    I see the Beta of the new CS is available now, but on an invite key only basis.

    Really?! How did you get it? And more importantly, what's it like?!?!

    From the offical site:

    Q) How can I get into the beta?
    A) Be active in the CS community. We are giving keys out to active players both in game and in the community. We will also have a survey up in the coming weeks that can help you get your name on the list for a key.
    News posted on the official blog on 14th Feb:

    While we aren’t ready to give everyone access right now. We do have plans to get more people in the Beta. To help us select the next batch of players, we will be releasing a short survey in a few weeks that you can fill out and get on the list for a Beta key.

    Mostly true, except finding a UK server running anything other than dust or dust2 is seriously hard work with the Steam browser, and ASE has long gone.

    Hehehe. No probs. Would love to get my hands on a key!

    Wish I waited for MW2. Just popped into game and Black Ops is down for 30 to 24.99 on PC.

    The UKCS servers are great fun. Custom maps but always full!

    See?

    Now you've re-awakened something in me which means I will have to go home and stick CS on!

    Although, secretly, I'd like to go back in time for another bash at TF! Playing engineer, setting your sentry gun up, and smashing the opposition to bits.....Them's the days!!!
