January 3, 2011 | | 25 Comments

In my last update I mentioned the 1.05 patch for Black Ops and that I would report on its effectiveness. This is that report.

22dec10: State of Black Ops: Patch 1.05

December 22, 2010 | | 24 Comments

A week after releasing the 1.04 patch, Treyarch has released patch 1.05. (This is a little odd considering that they’ve previously said that it’s about a one month process to release a new patch.) Here are the details from the … Read More

Last night I played Black Ops with the 1.04 patch, and I have to say that it wasn’t as bad for me as many led me to believe. I played for about two hours. Most of it by myself, and … Read More

Last week I started what I hoped to become a short-lived but weekly series on the state of Black Ops. I had assumed that Treyarch would continue putting out live patches and PSN patches to address issues that we’re all having. Unfortunately, nothing has changed in the last week. There have been no PSN patches, and any live patches that did occur were transparent enough that the game doesn’t seem to have changed at all.

To recap, the four biggest issues outstanding for Black Ops on the PS3 are frame rate issues, crashing/freezing, matchmaking, and bad spawns. Add to that sundry other issues like the fact that chat icons don’t work at all, and the game aborting and giving you a loss when someone quits to XMB, and Treyarch really has their work cut out for them.
