I really don't know why you guys expected to get this for free...

It's Activision, they will make every single penny they can and milk the hell out of a franchise until it's dead. They don't look to the future for better releases, they **** out whatever they can and try to rape people with it now. Who cares if the franchise dies, they will just buy another one and milk the piss out of that.

That being said, I rarely ever buy DLC. The only DLC I have ever bought was Gears of War 2 DLC, which I paid $10 for and got 6 new MP maps, a new SP campaign, and a new MP game type. I think that's a fair deal lol.

It's ok to be an optimist. I am a realist.

First strike pre order available on steam for 10, date of release March 25th.

Bad move on Treyarch's part, no news of mod tools still and there are no performance adjustments in the so called 'big' patch...meh, glad i just got to prestige 15 cos i am now done with BLOPS and Call of Duty for good....Bring on BF3.

Yes. Competitively, Black Ops is a pretty fun game. Still not as good as 4v4 Squad Rush, but BF3 should fix that.

holy smokes BLOPS is on sale on steam for 25% off, $45. Thats like the first cod sale ever in the first year. Bad sign compounded with that it has about half as many people online right now as mw2. Future cod PC titles will get even less attention possibly and BF3 will for sure dominate the PC market at least.

The DLC has a nice variety of quality maps. I'd say it is easily worth the money. It's not like there is anything else better to play as a Multiplayer FPS right now.
