Gamer Bio:

hey whats up im john my ps3 and xbox 360 gamertags are lilbiz73 im on my ps3 more Ninja

ok so my bio.... where do we start ill start with my ps2 days, when i really broke into gaming. it was mvp 2005 (baseball) that started it all. i was in love with that game and was beasting it i might add Ninja then the day that changed my gameing days forever... the black ring of death as i call it, (when a black rings appears on the disk) happened at the worst possible time and i remember it perfectly. i was doing a season with the cubs i was in the middle of a game vs the A's and mark prior was pitching. so it started out normal but then it started the 1st inning... no hits for the A's and the 2nd and the 3rd and the 4th and the 5th and the 6th and the 7th, i couldnt believe what was happening i was so close to a no hitter only one batter had made it on base from a error by Mouis Alou and then trough the 8th inning still no hits i was 3 outs away from my first no hitter......... then it happened derek lee was batting and the game just froze, i think my heart skipped a beat when that happened, and it never unfroze. when i took the game out a black ring was on it and the game was fried. havent came that close to a no hitter since. after that i didnt do much gameing till i picked up a ds and got obsessed with pokemon yes i no NERD! but it was pretty fun. then came the big guns, the day i bought my ps3 it was about a year ago and thts when my awesomeness (my word) in gameing came to full affect. the first came i got was rock band 1 for christmas that tear then gh3 with my christmas money. they grew on me quickly and i was obsessed, favoring guitar hero and still do. after picking up so more great games that i will talk about later i decided this chirstmas with my money i would get an xbox 360... well at about the time i got my 360 a little before my ps3 broke, my heart also skipped a beat there to so i sent it away and all my data was erased but watever. so xbox has been ok but i still like ps3 more Ninja the rest of this will be telling about my games and how they have been

guitar hero series
gh3 started the guitar hero madness for me. about a year and a half ago my freind brang over gh2 and it was pretty fun then he picked up gh3 and thats when it all started. i went over to his house the day he got it and we played a little. then he spent the night not to long before chirstmas and brang it over and thats the day i fell in love with guitar hero i rocked through the night and then when chirsitmas rolled around picked it up with my christmas money. a little more then a year later i have every guitar hero besides the ds ones (i play for fun not for sleep) Laughing ive beat most of them and they all have been very fun and am excited for the realese of guitar hero greatest hits this comeing june

  1. johnbiz10301 Call of Duty Black Ops Review

    Player Chronicle -- Posted on Nov 28 2010

    So Call of Duty Black Ops has been out for a couple weeks now so I though I would give a review of the multiplayer aspects of this game. I'm currently a 2nd prestige level 12 if you were wondering.

    The Good

    Weapon Balance- The guns in Black Ops are very balanced. Of course you have a couple dud guns and a couple great guns, but overall it is very balanced. The only problem I have with the weapon balance is the sub machine gun hip fire is a little to... laser-beamish, if I may say, but it isn't that big of deal.

    Killstreaks- I love how the killstreaks do not build on each other in Black Ops. It is nice knowing that a bad player cant camp his way to a five killstreak,which even the worst of players can do, and get a chopper gunner. Now instead of that tactic, you actually have to get the kills from your gun which makes for the game being much less frustrating with all of the air support. Unfortunately the care package is back, but that isn't a huge and plus a lot of people don't run it.

    Perks- I really like the perks in Black Ops. I think it is really good that Stopping Power and Juggernaut have been removed from the game. The rest of the perks are very balanced, however it seems like you seem Ghost, Sleight of Hand the most with the green perk changing a bit. The pro perks are very very hard to get without actually trying to get them, which can get a little frustrating but oh well.

    Customization- There is a lot to customize in Black Ops. There are a large amount things to make you unique in Black Ops. You blue perk determines what your character looks like. You can then add face paint which I personally love doing, Lightweight and Banshee I believe is my favorite looking combo so far. Then there is your player card. You can change the background and also customize an emblem. As it does get very annoying seen male and female body parts as peoples emblems, but if you can get by that there are some super cool and super creative emblems out there.

    Statistic Tracking- There are some many stats being tracked in Black Ops it is amazing. I love being able to see my rank in each gametype, and not just overall. Another really cool thing is how there is actually a win streak counter now so you always know what you are on, and your overall best win streak can be found in a different location. It tracks everything from guns, killstreaks, and medals you earn in a game. I've never been so interested in the stats of a game before, who ever thought of all of this at Treyarch, he needs to get a raise.

    Treyarch- Treyarch is great about their community support for their games. The game is only two weeks in so obviously it can't be flawless yet, but at least Treyarch is working to make it better and they are listening to us unlike Infinity Ward. Plus they are so active in the community and really care about us and giving us a good game to play. Let's just look at a quick example, the care package glitch. In Modern Warfare 2 the care package glitch took about a month or two to get fixed, the one in Black Ops, and I know a lot of you are saying there wasn't a care package glitch in Black Ops, but there was but Treyarch patched it so fast, roughly a day or two, that we never even knew about it. This is just one example of why Treyarch is the better Call of Duty studio in my opinion.



    The Bad

    Nuketown- Enough said

    RC-XD- This is not a huge issue, I would like to point that out, but I see it to be a problem that I have died from this killstreak more than any in Black Ops. It should be a 5 killstreak and then it would be perfectly fine. A 3 killstreak, and 2 with Hardline, is just to easy for a free kill in my opinion.

    Knife Lunge- The knife is a little to good in Black Ops. It seems like the lunge is massive and that knifing is almost better then shooting at very close quarters situations. I even heard they changed their button layout back to Default from Tactical because the knife was better then drop shotting. Now, I do keep in mind that this could be part of lag and that it just looks like a huge lunge, but I think it is pretty universal that the knife lunge is big. I wish they would go back to the Call of Duty 4 style of knifing where it was just a slash and not a lunge. I heard they patched this already, but playing today I could not see it. I do think this is one think though that they are working on and probably will be fixed before long. Another problem with the knife lunge is panic knifing. If you don't know what that is, it is when you see someone, get scared, and just end up hitting the knife button on your right analog. If they switched the Tactical and Default button layouts around so that the B button was knife I think that would be awesome.


    Hit Detection/Lag- I put these together because it is hard to tell which is the overall problem. The hit detection in Black Ops is very hit and miss, no pun intended. Some games you will be perfectly fine, and some games you will unload on a guy, and he will simply turn around and kill you. This is usually more of a session by session problem then a game by game problem. You will usually have a few good hours, followed by a few bad hours. Of course there are your exceptions where you may have bad detection during a good streak, and good during a bad, but that is expecting. This problem of course could be due to lag. I have watched plenty of kill cams where I know I shot the guy and he wont die and he kills me. On my screen I unloaded on him, but when I watch the kill cam, I didn't even shot. This is just something you are going to run into with online games, especially ones that use player hosts and don't have dedicated servers. I really wish the game had dedicated servers, but it never will, not on console at least, I think the PC crowd already has dedicated servers. Overall this can become a big issue when someone won't die when you shot them, but what can you do about it, it has always been a part of online gaming.


    Normal Call of Duty BS- Whenever you pick up a Call of Duty game, you go into knowing that there will be some shenanigans taking place while you play. Boosters are back, but you can now report them and they are much less common since you can't use Tactical Insertion in Free-for-All anymore. Of course there will still be your camping, your bad teammates that would rather sit on the wrong side of the map going 2-30 while you try to grab an objective, and your other random stuff that comes with Call of Duty. This is not a game mechanic problem in anyway, however wouldn't it be cool if you could report a guy for camping? This is just how Call of Duty works, it comes with the fun of it.

    Overall I give this game an 8/10 so far. The hit detection and lag is to big of a problem for me to give it a higher rating, but if I figure it out or if it gets fixed I can see this game easily rising up with that rating. I don't want you to think I'm saying this is a bad game at all, because it is not. I really do enjoy this game, it, along with every other Call of Duty made, just gets a little frustrating sometimes. I hoped you guys liked this and I will be doing another one once I am 5th prestige if I continue to prestige, or after another 2 days of in game time. If anyone wants to play just add me or invite me if your already on my list. GT: lilbiz73

    I have to agree with the knife lunge. I think it's completely ridiculous! I can't tell you how many times I've shot at someone from the hip who is lunging towards me with their knife. In real life, if I start shooting at you with an mp5, you're not going to Wesley Snipe your way through the bullets to stab me.

    I disagree with one part of your review. Nuketown rocks! Smile

    Yeah, I'd be up for it, I still gotta mess around with a few recording programs for Skype so I can record both of our voices. I don't think it's too hard though.

    That sounds good, but we have to evaluate how to do a duel commentary - we could do it in person, but it's easier to do it over Skype or Ventrilo - I got to ask some people.
