The difference between you being on the other team and ATB was that you were kicking our ass and the rest of your team let you down.

Kotaku is reporting that both characters WILL NOT be on the same disc.

Darth Vader will be in the PS3 version, while Yoda is only playable in the Xbox 360 version.

Any multi-console owners torn on which version to get now?

well, I want both, and since I can't have both fuck them- I ain't buying the game twice.  I may, however, out of spite, pick one version up used at some point just to cheat them out of the money for trying to make me buy both.

Ditto, I'll buy it used.  Hated the approach they used before where I couldn't have Spawn because I didn't have an xbox

I'm looking forward to a large number of the 360 ones especially Saboteur and Guilty Gear (which I didn't even know they were doing)

This most recent time through prestige I decided to not do any of the weapon challenges other than the ones I like to use anyway.  It didn't slow me down a whole lot on levelling but it sure did affect my stats.

I'm a big fan of the rating system.  I will take the time to avoid a player and give him a bad rating, even if it means losing the match.  I will do that if I find a player's gamertag offensive even if he is behaving himself in game.

I do the same, I report players, rate them if they yell on the mic, disconnect, etc....

But honestly, how are you a fan of the rating system?  What does it even do to weed out troublemakers?  I haven't heard or seen anything.

It does pretty much nothing.  I'm marked as 47% avoided meaning 47% of the people I play with have marked me with negative feedback.  It's almost exclusively for being 'aggressive' and 'unsporting' which translates into 'Harkonis kicked my ass and I didn't like it'.  I still have a 5 star rating even with that rep.  I also still get matched up with people I've marked as avoid.

Got to play local multiplayer for the first time today.  Man, what a absolute blast that was.  At one point, I actually had my wife, my mother, and my sister-in-law all playing Say it Ain't So.  Of the thousands of gaming moments this household has seen, that was truly one of the most amazing.  When Mrs. Gratch picked up the mic, I honestly think hell may have frozen over.

Also got to spend a couple hours in World Tour mode with my brother.  It's certainly fun, but some of the difficulty seemed way off.  We tried a random set at one of the first locations, and it threw Flirtin' With Disaster at us.  He's only played a few times, and failed pretty quickly.  Set it up again, it came up with ...And Justice for All, and we failed a second time.  I know it's a random set, but I would think the game would scale some of the difficulty of the songs, at least for the first few locations.  Other than that, we had a great time.

The random setlists are weighted for difficulty but that doesn't exclude the harder songs.  You'll find the easier songs coming up more often (which people bitch about) and you'll also get the really hard songs on occasion (which people bitch about) slywink

Basically I think they took the middle ground to ensure that all songs come up eventually but you don't get screwed over often.  Sadly people will bitch about anything so they are in a lose-lose situation.  I wish the difficulty level within difficulties was a bit more even personally but the curve to the last tier or so is kinda steep.

As I was driving hundreds of miles away from my 360 yesterday  icon_frown, I was again ruminating on starting a second live account.

This account would be used for playing MP games after I'm familiar with them to see what my K/D would be once I'm up to speed on the maps, techniques and weapons.

I bet my K/D would be around 4.0 or more in COD4 and probably 2.0 or more in Haloz.

I have a 3 day temp pass for Live at home. I may give it a go when I get home.

4.0 or more? Come on man, don't be absurd  slywink. ThinJ is the best COD4 player you will likely ever see and hes not even at 2.0.

I bet ATB could be 4.0 or higher, I know I could be if I hadn't started off playing so much domination and the like.  I often go with 11-1 odds or greater and sometimes 20-0.  My bad games are usually 2-1 any more with the occasional once a night 1-2.  I had 4 games in a row with over 30 kills and as many as 46 with between 1-5 deaths.  It's very doable but the learning curve ate up any chance I have at having a real k/d until I'm in the 100,000 kill area.

Are we talking about the real COD4 or the funky hardcore thing with your sniper rifle and assault rifle combo where you can find the correct corner of most maps and never be touched? I feel like its an important distinction.

Normal COD4, I have a worse record in Hardcore mode, I just enjoy it more.

As far as K/D I only moved up to 1.90. I was at 1.91 and then had one particularly awful game where I went 25/21 and dropped back down a notch.

It's getting to a point where I doubt I'll be able to continue raising it. I had that game where I went 67/6 and it only went up .02 (from 1.88) and then one badly played game and I'm back down. I think I'm going to focus more on the Wins leaderboard from this point on. That seems the more important thing anyway really Tongue

I did some math to see what it will take for me to get to a 2.0 k/d and sadly I'd need to go 18-6 for 1000 straight matches to get that. ah well slywink My kills are high enough now that I need a change of hundreds of kills to make a visible difference.

I couldn't care less about the wins leaderboard because a full 50% or more of my losses and probably 10% of my wins are from games that ended early due to host quitting or losses from backing out to grab a friend who got dropped.

i am willing to hazard a guess that no matter how good R6V2 is, that its going to be a LONG time before COD4 goes anywhere-the game is selling buckets and I am guessing its popularity as a mp shooter is going to only increase over the next few months-especially considering how monumentally superior it is to the game on top of it.

 I remember this one time we played with people from these boards.  Someone (I forget who right now) in one map got to a central door with snake cam and he spent the whole round just relaying out target information to us.  That round we beat the other team badly (and this was a good team with Harkonis on their side).  That is just an example of how Vegas is so great at the team tactics level.

I remember that match.  It was JarrodHK that was doing all the intel work and I was on your team  nod Great game and great match

Just for the record, if Jarrod, Kato and Skystride are on the same team, they can win without the intel.   slywink

They are adding more spawn points in the patch in an effort to improve the spawn camping issue.

I'm going to be pretty much playing Hardcore Team Deathmatch from here on out.  Downside is my accuracy is really going down now.  I think it's because on normal mode when a burst of 3 comes out they all hit the target and kill it.  On hardcore when the burst of 3 comes out, the first round kills the target and the other two miss.  I'm playing the same, conservative bursts and no spraying and my accuracy % is dropping .01 per round in hardcore and gaining .01 every couple rounds in normal mode.

BTW regarding ATB's interesting math antics... the higher the numbers get the easier it seems to get a lower k/d.  If you have a round that you break even, it can actually lower your k/d % since the ratio has changed.
