    Well thanks a lot Sandy, ...No I sound too nerdy. Oh well, it's nature. Might as well live with it, and wait till things clear up and fix. No wonder.. Why I couldn't go on Zombies.
    Well lets stay with this news, and see when this Hurricane Sandy shit is gone.

    I'm just amazed to learn that they're keeping the Guitar Hero online modes up and running.

    Affecting US customers only?

    If there is power outages in the US east coast, it's not really surprising that a few game servers in the area take the hits too. UPS can't keep a server or two running forever. :I

    Thats a bad thing now?

    I think its a good thing, making those gamers stop and play something worth playing.

    If my kids wanted to play CoD I would be happy to break the disk and give them one for any other game.

    Well I don't have any Xbox Live Gold anyway, but still waiting for Black Ops 2 to come out. Everything else I have played to death.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    CoD fans deserve to have everything they love taken away from them.

    ahhh thats why black ops bugged on me the other day. kept acting like i never played showing that woman video in the intro, kept asking me to set my screen viewable area and shiz. also would not connect to the servers.

    i went to the website but they sadly do not give info about the outage. its labeled in defcons. is defcon 1 good or is defcon 5 good? im not a fucking military expert damnit.

    that place
    The idiocy of the comments on Gamespot... apparently Hurricane Sandy is the direct result of Activision milking their franchises.
