ID:	596517 Treyarch community manager, JD_2020, has posted on the Steam forums notifying us that Black Ops has just been graced with a client-side update, hopefully resolving the stuttering issues that have been such a hot topic over past days. The patch claims to fix the non-operational "friends" tab in the server browser, improve performance for dual and quad core computers, as improve the connectivity of the Black Ops Remote Console.

    But, has it worked? Results seem varied. Some people are claiming it has removed the lag-like stutters and freezes entirely, while others say they see no difference what-so-ever and that all cores are still firing at 100%. Let us know if the problem is now resolved for you.

    Steam will need to re-complete the installation, and some people are receiving "Incomplete Installation" errors. It is suggested by Steam support that you do do not submit support tickets for this issue, rather that you wait 10-15 and try again.

      Guys just put the ''auto-download'' option in the multiplayer options off and the weird lag issues are gone... Proven by: me. It really helped. I've got a nice gamersrig and good internet and ping so I couldn't figure it out, but this destroyed all issues.

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was just updated again, making a number of changes and additions to the game. The default map has been switched from Inferno to Train, which appears to be a far better recreation than Inferno, apart from the fog issue.

    I've been shooting some face in the CS:GO beta for the first time this evening, and there's quite a bit to talk about. I should preface this impressions article with the note that while I used to play at a national level, it has been years since I've delved into any CS in any serious capacity. I'm sure there will be a number of current day elitists out there who disagree with my opinions, but I'm not claiming this as gospel, so append as much or as little weight to these opinions as you care to....
