Default CoD World at War

Here's some video to help people make up their mind. Multiplayer in CoD:WaW looks pretty darn good.

Graphics looks the same as COD4 which might mean I get another winter out of my 8800GT

Why make it for a specific game? Why not setup a HWC Vent server and just have subchannels for different games?

Or has vent changed since I last used it a few years ago - do you have to have a specific game or purpose for it?

I've been wanting to play CoD4 online, but I'm afraid to get pwned by a ten year old who shouldn't even be playing the game

I'm not making it for a specific game ahaha, I actually never said it was only for COD4, I was actually asking everyone if they'd use it for MORE than just the game!


p.s. COD5 is made on the exact same engine as COD4 and it was actually started at the same time just not slated to come out until after.

i have a 50 man vent right now if you all want to get on, try it out and discuss the games you might want to play. :)
i usually only use it with a couple friends when we want to play WOW and hide from our COD4 clan (they cry when we play wow... hehe)

208.100.14.167 port 3809
no password

i'll make a HWC channel so you can join that one and you'll know who is from here.

doh!

I'm a newb - I thought they may have turned vent into an Xfire kind of deal or something and now it could be paired up with a game to use it in-game or something - Apparently I was over complicating things.

I only play TF2 but it sounds like a great idea!
