During June/July, there was a great bundle on sale with Call of Duty 1, UO, 2, 4, and 5 all for $29.99, but it ended July 4. Somehow I didn't get it because I thought I didn't need it, but now it turns out that pack is exactly what I need (the games in the pack are now in the top 5 of my wishlist).

It would be AMAZING to see it return for the Give & Get sale, but I'm guessing that won't happen. It would still make sense for it to return permanently, at a price of around $60. Right now, the War Chest (Containing 1, UO and 2) is $30, so 2 more games for another $30 makes some sense.

Anybody agree?

I would love to buy Call of Duty and United Offensive! I'm willing to pay $5 or less for each. :)

Yeah, it was a great deal. Annoyingly, I already owned all but WaW, so the bundle price was the same as the price for the game on its own. I'm still waiting for a good sale on WaW; maybe this Christmas...

Yep, it's probably one of the best deals ever on Steam (Apart form free Portal, $2.50 TF2, and $10 Orange Box). It would be great to see it again, and to give the people who missed it first a second chance (judging from this thread, there seems to be a few).

It was everything COD up to but not including MW2. It was indeed $30, which, since it had WOW as well, was quite worth it.

They havent even reduced the price of COD Modern Fail 2 yet, here in Australia they are still trying to charge $90US for a wholotta fail. Of course you could pay $90US for COD Fail Ops and not even be able to play it due to stuttering and game crashes, thanks for the cheap productive options Activision.

yes, you're right the last 2 CoD weren't nice

but till CoD5 (yes, World at War too) CoD series were funny and good as game
and then I'm realy enjoyed myself with all of them

returning IT, i bought the call of duty collection (for 27.99) and i think that for Christmas it will come back

I think it was called The Warchest or something.
Included call of duty 1, 2 and united offense.

Old engine, but it still gives a swell ride.

The stuttering in Black Ops has been fixed, and I don't recall any issues with crashes. Overall it's a very nice port, once patched.

MW2 PC should never be purchased by any self-respecting PC gamer, though. It should be kept out of the bundle, if it returns.

@real4xor: The Call of Duty War Chest is a permanent bundle with COD1, UO and 2. The Call of Duty Collection had those, plus COD4 and WaW, for the same price.

I was planning on buying the War Chest until I read about the Collection, so now I'm hoping for it's return.

LOL, you've got to be joking right, Fail Ops is far from a nice port(if there is even such a thing, which I doubt). It is far from fixed for many, just becuase the patch worked for some, it clearly didnt work for many many people, in fact it made it worse, the latest patch brought my game from the odd major stutter here and there to constant stuttering and major crashes every 1 to 2 mintues(this is on an i7 with 2x5870's, and I know how to configure my computer), resulting in an unplayable game, and I am far form the only one, this game is TOTALLY UNPLAYBLE FOR MANY. Try reading some more of the Fail Ops forums, Failarch seem to barely know what they are doing, my MP config file was defaulting my comp to one core, this is just one of the many failures. :rolleyes:

shakeandbake
11-27-2010, 04:29 AM
I had no idea it was that bad. I have a mid-range PC and only ever encountered stuttering pre-patch, but apart from that I've had no problems whatsoever.

Kinda strange that an i7 and dual 5780's don't work, but my AMD Athlon and GTS250 works fine.

The only cod I like is on a plate with lots of tartar sauce. :)

However, for those that must, I vaguely remember this promotion but I think it hasn't happened more often is precisely because these games are so popular.

Still, I wouldn't be surprised if Xmas brings fans something special this year, so keep a few notes in your wallet just in case.

I was thinking of getting CoD 4 Modern Warefare that went on sale today but wanted to try the previous titles first. Does it matter or not if you don't play them in order?

COD4 is only connected to Modern Warfare 2, and Black Ops has two characters from World at War. Apart from that, the games are all separate, you can play them however you like, just don't buy MW2!

Call of Duty died when CoD3 went console only. Every game since has just been a port.

shakeandbake
11-27-2010, 09:30 PM
COD didn't die with 3. COD3 was pretty much just another Finest Hour/Big Red One, but for whatever reason it was given a number. COD4 PC wasn't a port as there was no lead platform, plus it received excellent support. PC map packs were free while console maps weren't, and it was the same deal with WaW. 360 became the lead platform with WaW, MW2 and Black Ops, but the PC version of WaW was still excellent, there was nothing there to suggest it was a port.

COD died with MW2. The Call of Duty Collection is a pack of every great COD game at a low price, and it needs to return.

11-27-2010, 10:35 PM
I think the reason I didn't get this pack is because I didn't have a good enough computer to play the latest CoDs at the time. And the fact that I already have cod1, uo, and 2.

But if I ever see this pack again, I'll pick it up.

The previous pack was for a weekend if I am remembering correctly.

For my money I would be very interested in a WaW + Black Ops (Treyarch) pack. I am interested in the things that come with black ops, and some of the WaW stuff carries into the new one, would be nice to have both and not pay 70 dollars, or whatever insane thing they are asking.

Would be a lot of money - but totally worth it in my opinion. The newer Call of Dutys HAVE been overrated - but that doesn't mean they instantly suck. It just means that the hype they received was too much than it needed.

Not much of World at War carries over into Black Ops. There is one major character in both games, but not much is revealed about him in WaW. The only other character that returns is one of the player characters as a cameo, but you'd only recognise him by name.

@zeroskill: No. Call of Duty has always been a fantastic shooter. It all became overhyped bull♥♥♥♥ with MW2, but even that was still a good game (at best). It is certainly not for 12 year old either, because despite what you may think with complaints about Xbox Live, the pre-teens playing the series are far in the minority. Games made for this audience (i.e. games rated 10+) are still far more popular than COD.

I wasnt here for this deal :(

I would love it if they put it back up
Still have fond memories of the first call of duty
Be nice if cod 3 was in the pack, loved its multiplayer. 3 mates bombing around in a jeep, capture the flag on the dam map ( think it was called)

It just feels like the latest cod games have lost what made the others special, team work. (i miss being a medic to)
I have black ops for 360 and team work is just not there, its all about raking in the highest kill count no matter what game mode it is.

I guess with cods 1-3 i made plenty of friends on them, now people just get stuck on my mute button.
