Just picked up Black Ops, PC DVD. It's installing through Steam. What's up with that? I wasn't aware that it would do that. [confused]

Yes, it uses steams VAC and therefore needs steam to run.

Your not alone in this fight. After 2 hours steam had reached only 2%. In the end I just said f**k it and decided to get the files from a torrent. I just hope it works.

It starts off slow installing from disc but then speeds up.

At least, that's how it was for me on MW2 and a friend on Black Ops last night.

Took about 18minutes to install. 14 for initial install then 4 for an update. I thought it was a quick install.

Only gripe I have is high CPU usage and lag. At times the lag in unbearable. I'm amazed I can actually shoot someone.

Hopefully a patch will resolve this. Other than that, it has been enjoyable so far [thumbs_up] Zombies is always fun!

Okay. Thanks. It completely through me off when I saw it installing through Steam. My install went about 18 minutes, without error.

I'm reasonably pleased so far with my PC's performance. I started ranking up a little before I had to head out to work today. Looks good so far...

Just wondering; How are the dev tools and Steam going to get along?
