    Is it worth getting on the PC for multiplayer? I've played through the campaign and thought it was really good, but what about online?

    There might not be dedicated servers and such, but I enjoy playing it online :dunno:

    Is it a pain in the ass to get put into a game on PC as well?

    Fucking garbage party system on ps3, for sure.

    I've got mixed feelings on it. The gameplay, for the most part, is fine with the notable exception of the usual camping cowards and people who are so good the game is clearly no challenge*.

    However, the lack of dedicated servers SUCKS. I was one of the people before it came out saying "oh I don't see the big deal, the matchmaking will be fine", but I was wrong wrong wrong. There's no balancing so you get a bunch of level 60s vs a few people who've just started playing, host migration is shitty, it can be a pain to find games, etc.

    Oh, and having voice chat in the game is kinda "meh", since it's comprised mostly of nine year olds.

    No lean also sucks.

    EDIT: and I really have issues with the fact that it's a lot like WoW and other faggames where the people living in mom's basement with no job have a huge advantage in the equipment and perks at their disposal just because they have 92x as much time as people with jobs and social lives.





    * Seriously, what's the point of doing things that aren't a challenge?

    Also

    - I don't own a console any more
    - I don't like shooting with controllers

    So it's PC or nothing

    Buy a PS3. Or a 360, I don't really care.

    Console > PC

    No, it's very painless. Click what I want to play and within seconds I'm either going into the game or waiting a little in the lobby for the game to start.

    I was browsing the IWNET forums and 402 was saying they were banning 2,500 cheaters. I doubt it will do shit though, seeing as most of them are using a fake steam accounts.

    Cheaters you say? I've never encountered any so far.
    What type of cheating are we talking about? Aimbot/wallhack?

    Super aimbot and wallhack. I had a game where a cheater stood on the hill of afgan with an LMG and just shit on everybody's face in less than 5 seconds.
