Valve Admits Mistake, Gives Two Free Copies of Left 4 Dead 2Nick Puleo

We've all made mistakes and most of the time, we feel better about owning up to them.  Valve recently had a little slip up when their anti-cheat software automagically banned 12,000 Modern Warfare 2 players from the PC version of the game.  Turns out though, they weren't cheating at all.

Despite the success of Nazi Zombie's in Call of Duty: World at War, we won't be seeing the likes of the undead shamble across the modern battlefield.  While many had hoped to see a similar style mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it's been confirmed by community manager Robert Bowling that we won't be getting anything of the sort.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sold like hotcakes, to be sure.  But that doesn't mean the game was perfect.  Though the Special Ops co-op mode is great, the real question is: why no campaign co-op?  We've said it many times before.  Apparently, we aren't the only ones that feel this way.  The Escapist has a Modern Warfare 2 review by the Micro-Machines Man-mouthed Zero Punctuation.  It's pretty hilarious, if NSFW, and one of the main points is the lack of co-op in the campaign.  For fans of Modern Warfare 2 who don't take the game so seriously, it's defintely worth checking out!

The November NPD numbers are out, and with them we get the stats of the biggest shopping weekend of the year in the United States.  It should come as no surprise that Modern Warfare 2 topped the charts with 4.2 million copies on the 360 and 1.87 million on the PlayStation 3.  Rounding out the top 5 were Assassin's Creed 2 on the 360, New Super Mario Bros Wii and Left 4 Dead 2 on the 360.

Keep the pedal to the floor on those party chat complaints in Modern Warfare 2!  According to Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling, they hear you loud and clear on the complaints from the community.  Whether hearing is the same as acting, well that's yet to be seen, but for those of you annoyed by the lack of party chat options in certain multiplayer play lists on the Xbox 360 - scream to the heavens:
