I hear a lot of people complaining about the new patch. Seems dual analog players now have to much of an advantage with the lame stronger aim assist.

After applying the patch, at least the glitchy weapon and equipment animations introduced in the previous versions are gone. However, I did find the Stealth Helicopter twice just sitting there, stuck, way higher then usual on two different maps just waiting to be shot down. Let's see how this goes.

Where to start? The pistols are still broken, animations are still off especially when using axes, betties, grenades etc.

I've since found a glitch with the Assault Shield to have it display your clan tag and emblem before it's prestiged. It's all a blops up.

I haven't got Black Ops 2 yet, but it seems like I'm gonna wait a while longer to see how this all works out.
It also seems to me that you people should be sending emails to Activision seeing as the issues you all mentioned don't seem to be in the patch. (or are they?)

The home menu part is the best part of this update for me. No more having to wait through long loading screens just to be able to exit the game.
But it seems there's more...broken stuff.



Tsuchiya said:

Pressing the Home button is great but it kicks you off the servers. Overall, the update is a complete mess but I do like the minor tweaking to everyones career records.

Unfortunately I can see that there's going to be a trend to release bug riddled games, simply because it's easier to patch it at a latter date.



SCAR said:

I don't even use aim assist, because it seems to mess me up more than it helps. I didn't notice any of them besides the home menu.

Anyone else unable to use items as Player 2 in Zombies, and unable to throw grenades sometimes as Player 1?

I'm surprised they put so much focus on the Wii Remote. From reading Miiverse most people prefer the Wii U Pro Controller.

It'll get fixed. I've got the game but for anyone who hasn't, I'd say wait and see if the DLC comes out for WiiU.

Yes, I saw that episode and was hoping no one else did. Still that was my comment and I'm sticking to it.

I don't think the problems will ever be truly fixed on the Wii U side of things. Sounds like this version is beyond repair, no matter how many resources are put into it, hence the turd is getting too big to polish.
