comment Old Mac Tank Game - Bolo
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've been trying to remember this game for weeks now! I didn't post on here because all I could remember was, "some tank game when I was in college"

comment Is there any effective way to defend against attack dogs?
I think you're right. I remembered seeing posts about it, but I think that the person who posted about it was disproved.

Just an FYI... the dogs in CoD:BO are super dogs... they can climb ladders :)

comment Is there any effective way to defend against attack dogs?
Great answer. It had most of what I was going to say, but I'd also add that you can knife them if you get the timing right. Try to practice the timing because it can be a life-saver when you're reloading or otherwise can't shoot them.

comment How to handle Walker/Big Walker waves
This worked on an earlier wave, but I still haven't had a chance to try it on a later wave (Big Walker/Soaker wave got me around level 40 last night. I'm going to try to test it one more time then I'll accept, assuming that it works. Thanks!

comment Is it possible to beat level 20 of the Mine without any damage?
Thanks for the link. It's been awhile since I accepted the answer, but in case the link goes down... the method used was to constantly slow the mobs while constantly walking backwards from in front. Slow-Grenade-Sniper-Sniper-Repeat. It took me a little while to get used to navigating the whole maze backwards.

comment Is it worth using a headset instead of speakers for FPS games?
Great, now after spending $500 of a new processor, motherboard, and memory I need to go out and buy $300 headphones? CoD:BO is the most expensive game ever! :)

comment Black Ops: preferred way of dealing with cheaters
You certainly know better than me, since I wasn't in the games and can't see the video. I just wanted to throw that warning out there. Did the steps above work for you?

Thanks! I've been looking for something like this for awhile

comment In Call of Duty: Black Ops What gun is recommended for a person with horrible aim?
A grenade launcher is going to require perfect aim at close quarters since the explosive won't go off (you need a direct hit with the canister) and a long distances it can be very hard to aim (IMO)

Was this from your own testing or do you have a source for this? I'm just curious where you can find this kind of information in general.

comment 50 or 100 points for a kill?
I don't pay much attention to exact scoring, but I could swear that I've gotten some big numbers from assists. It's rare, so maybe it has to do with some kind of bonuses, but I know I've seen assists worth more than 100 and I almost exclusively play TDM and DEM

comment Perfect 180 turns and aiming
I tested this out last night along with upping the sensitivity. I still don't think I'm used to it yet, but after a couple of games I was getting over 1.0 KDR. I definitely noticed some times when I wasn't able to get an accurate long distance shot in time because of the high sensitivity. My mouse has a button to change sensitivity on the fly, so with that I could usually manage with long distance shots, but it's extra time to click that button. I'm going to stick with it for now though and see how it works once I'm fully used to it.

comment Perfect 180 turns and aiming
Thanks for the suggestion. I just unchecked that setting and I'm going to give it a shot, along with upping my in-game mouse sensitivity.

comment Perfect 180 turns and aiming
Thanks for the advice. I was actually talking about videos of my own games that I've watched in the CoD:BO Theater. When someone completely crushes me I often watch the game to see what they were doing better than me.

comment Close Quarter Combat in Call of Duty Black Ops
@Aardvark - Thanks. BTW, my nick for about the last 20 years was Aardvark. I was wondering who took it on here before I could ;)

comment How do you get the “pro” options for the perks?
Very detailed, but you didn't actually answer the question... "Do you need to complete them in order to get the "pro" level of that perk ?"

Just the once. I was planning to try again tonight, but I'm going through withdrawal at work so thought I'd post in case I was missing anything :)

comment Interaction between high ground, detection, and “vision”
Wow, that's very different from how I thought it would work. Good to know, thanks!
