Gobbets! COD Black Ops' Server Non-Scandal

The best-selling game of 2009, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, caused all manner of uproar, none of which managed to impede its steamroller progress in the slightest. Still, it's good to hear that franchise-inheritors Treyarch have paid at least some attention to the complaints. Specifically, the lack of dedicated servers, which both denied us the modding and customisation we're so used to and complicated online games hugely. Things will be different in COD: Black Ops, aka Not-Quite-Modern Warfare...

"I think dedicated servers are excellent. I don't see any reason not to see them unless... well, I just don't see any reason not to," studio head Mark Lamia told PC Zone. Good to hear. But could you also ensure it has a decent singleplayer game, free of horrific grenade spam? And not, say, a workmanlike stomp that relied on a one-level gimmicky zombie mode for its success.
