I guess your talking about the beta for X-Box live. I took your comment as a tip encorp and signed up over at callofduty.com and got myself registered. I'm not entirely sure how they will go about distributing keys for the PC beta but I'm in the mix now so hopefully I'll get a key. Hope more HWC peeps do the same and we all can have some free fun while we wait for the retail to come.

Yeah I don't own an xbox so I gave my key away but I did get the chance this weekend to try it out at a friends place who happened to have it when I was there for a drinkfest lol.

You should be able to get a PC beta key hopefully, let me know if you do and I'll do the same!

Yeah, I think I'm gonna sign up right now. Sounds like they want lots of people playing the beta on lots of dedicated servers: Call of Duty, World at War

I gotta check it out.

"You will be required to enter a CD Key for the BETA, much like you will when you get the full game this November. These PC keys will be available to all registered users of CallOfDuty.com, including any new users who sign up after the PC BETA releases. These keys aren't intended to limit the BETA to a certain number of players; they are here to allow you to create these unique profile names for our Friends and Invites features."



Yep! Sounds like it'll be available to anyone signed up to the website!

I don't know anything about online multiplayer really, but I really like the idea of us all being noobs when it comes to COD:WaW and its maps. IMHO.

I'll be down for some cod5 when it comes out, I like the idea of squadplay, medic/revive perk and tanks baby......oh and sniping from trees.

Yeah I've been having trouble connecting to games in the Beta, we'll see how it goes! Still waiting on the release to get this going, I think right now it's really between COD4 and COD5, I love TF2 but it's not as easy to just jump into for new people and there are A LOT more active people in COD community as a whole.

Left 4 Dead!!! 4 player, zombie stompin co-op - woot! :D

I suck ass at MP but this actually sounds like it might be fun. I played a little TF2 and FEAR MP, I was actually ok at FEAR MP. TF2 is alright if you are just a Heavy or Demo Man. Other classes are tougher imo. But it's been ages so anyways... uhm, CoD 5? I don't even own CoD4 yet lol. $50 for the short SP campaign is too rich for my blood. And as said I would majorly suck at the MP so I never bothered. Maybe CoD 5 is more worth it? I think I remember seeing a Zombie mode for the MP in CoD 5. Zombie Nazis FTW! I don't know why but I am obsessed with zombies lately. Does this post help at all? 0.o

No worries, I'm sure there will be quite a few of us that suck, myself included! I think this will make it a real blast - see above comments about getting pwned by 14yo brats. I might even get a laugh out of getting gunned down every 6 seconds.

CoD4 is still $50!? It's not that long of a game but if you play it on the hardest level it will take a lot of do-overs... you know for us non-pros. Even still I can't say it's not worth the money, I bought the game right away when it first came out and I'd do it again.
